    Who were you before you were born? “ We are born originals and die as copies” (Kierkegaard) Before you were born you were free to be yourself. You had no one to worry about, no one to copy. And then you were born. Born into a life where the search for meaning is totally dependent on finding and expressing your true self, but do you know who that is? Psychological struggles that bombard and restrict many of us, in varying degrees, have their origins in the developmental hurdles of our childhood. We are all individuals with our own special talents and personal power. And yet everywhere we…

    There is nothing I seek more than gratefulness and peace of mind. When I’m in their grip, I’m floating on air. You've felt it, too, haven't you? Then, you've also felt it slip away... Because it's tough to spend every moment of our lives in a state of gratitude, especially when things that happen to us aren't exactly positive, right? It's tough to be grateful on a rainy day when everything seems to go wrong. Not to mention feel peace of mind! Luckily, there's a way to jumpstart your gratitude engine and get back into a peaceful frame of mind.  Here are a few quotes I love to read…

Thinking about the things that you love doing will help steer you to what might be the best career path for you. Love numbers? Maybe you're an accountant. Love fixing things? Maybe you're a carpenter. Remember Past Experiences Think back to a time when you felt really satisfied with your work. Remember when you felt really proud about the job you did?

    Aside from temporary setbacks and extraordinary fortunes of inheritance or luck, if you want to know how people feel about themselves, look at their bank accounts. MONEY is the greatest measurement of one’s mindset. This is probably why there is so much emotion and neurosis tied to people’s relationship with money. That is why I say if you want to fix your money problems, get your head examined. It’s your attitude about money that will rake it in or repel it from you. Your money, and your mentality about it is what we are going to focus on in this 2 part…

I’ve learned in studying great performers—athletes, entertainers, artists, business leaders—that the difference between good performance and spectacular performance is in their preparation. In fact, extraordinary performance is possible only through extraordinary preparation. Most often the performance outcome has been decided before the performance even begins. This is also true for you—before a big meeting or presentation and before you clock in at the office. Extraordinary performance…

    A self-made person does not exist. We are products of our choices and of people who helped us get where we want to be. Accepting this will not make us small. Instead, this can make us be more grateful and make us continue to find opportunities to grow and make a difference in the world. You can make the most of who you are if you pay forward. Most people do not really expect you to payback. Many of them are no longer here. You can only spread the good things you have recieved if you pay forward. Paying forward is easy.

But always remember, excellence is not sexy. For the last three months, I have conducted leadership workshops for corporate managers of private corporations and thousands of public servants: school principals, municipal mayors and councilors, barangay charpersons, teachers, and day care workers. One thing is obvious: excellence is not sexy. Most Filipinos do not know this: when it comes to knowledge about leadership and…

    You cannot expect people to commit if they do not know where to go — and why. Many managers believe one of the greatest obstacles in performance is lack of commitment. They invite me to their organisations to talk about commitment to their people. They believe I have the cure that will make state of their people’s commitment healthy again. Either these managers do not know what commitment is all about — or they too lack the commitment they want to see in their people. One thing I know: I will not commit to something I do not know. I will not follow a person I do not trust.

They want  me to make them realise that it is to the employees ultimate benefit to be loyal. They missed the mile. I am not an expert when it comes to making employees loyal to the business. I cannot train the employees to be loyal. Because the person you need to train, I tell them often, is you. Your people will not be loyal to the…

  • What Is Your Predetermined Pilot Response

    Aviv Shahar
    1 May 2015 | 9:12 am
    Spontaneity works well for the well prepared. As a leader you must be prepared to respond. You must be ready to communicate what’s important and demonstrate your values. In certain situations, you must have a chosen predetermined behavior and response. I was first introduced to the power of predetermined and programmed response in the fighter pilot course of the Israeli Air Force. My air force training was activated when my son was 15 and was about to get his driver’s permit. Knowing the risks of teenage driving, I decided to put in place a predetermined behavior.  Read more here…

When you keep returning to them to reflect on new meanings they reveal, you are rewarded with fresh insights that help you reimagine and reinvent what you do. Powerful questions help you reframe your thinking, and transform the value you create for the people you serve. “What business are you in?” For successful leaders, reflecting on Peter Drucker’s famous powerful question is a perennial exercise. As the environment shape-shifts and evolves, they know they must ask themselves in a fresh and new way what business they are in.

    What can we learn from Germany’s winning the World Cup? How are these insights relevant to your organization’s innovation strategy? Successful innovation requires resilience, enthusiasm, the commitment of resources, a disciplined process, and the best minds of your organization working together and having conversations at a whole new level. The German team demonstrated a systems approach to its matches. Its members brought depth, focus, selfless team spirit, and disciplined execution. Read the KEY here.   © Aviv Shahar

  • Why I Started my Business?

    29 May 2015 | 12:00 am
    Why I  started my business?  I wanted to know if my reasons matched theirs.  I wanted to know if I was like Warren Buffett, Steve Jobs, or Bill Gates.  Don’t you?  Did they start their businesses just to make money or change the world? I thought I would share why I started a business years ago and you can let me know if it matches your reasons or not. Why? Independence is the number one reason.  I know it was for me!  I did not want to work for someone else.  I wanted to make my own decisions.  The idea of setting my own hours and paid based on what I accomplished was enticing to…
  • Money Matters: Saving

    27 May 2015 | 12:05 am
    Saving is income not spent or deferred consumption. Saving involves reducing expenditures such as recurring costs in terms of personal finance. It is the first step to achieve your financial goal. It may be to purchase a car, a down payment for your first home, vacation, or retirement. If you are like most people, life gets in the way of saving for retirement. Make saving a priority and find money to save! No excuses! Before you give me an excuse why you cannot save, make it automatic! If you set up a payroll deduction, the money will automatically go to your savings or money market account.
  • Happy Memorial Day

    25 May 2015 | 12:01 am
    Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States to remember the people who died while serving in the armed forces. It is observed every year on the last Monday in May. It was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the soldiers who died during the war. It was a time to place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries. Memorial Day is still a time to honor those people who died in war, but it is much more. It is a parade, outdoor concert, sales, the beginning of summer or just an excuse to get together with family. It is a…

    Retirement planning is more than your financial needs! I retired (achieved financial independence) about thirty-eight (38) years ago and understand this better than most people. I am just two (2) years away from retiring again and thinking about what I will do in retirement. There are a lot of things that come to mind, but enough about me. What are you going to do in retirement? This may be the most important question you face in retirement! You have the finances set, you been saving, investing and making sure you have sufficient money to support you and your family. Now, you are faced with…

    26 May 2015 | 10:31 am
    Last month I had the honour of speaking at TEDxBend. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life. As someone who used to hate public speaking (or public attention of any kind really), getting up there in front of 1,400 people and talking about something so personal was… a feat. This morning, the video of my TED talk was published. It is now live for the world to see! I poured everything I have into this talk. It’s about multipotentialites, the fact that there’s nothing wrong with us, the fact that we have “super powers,” and why we need to encourage…

  • A Personal Note from Emilie Before the TED Flurry Hits

    20 May 2015 | 11:46 am
    There’s this awkward thing that happens when you host a big time-sensitive project (like a sale) on your site. You need to put your marketing cap on for a while, and do the project justice by talking about it a lot. This isn’t actually painful, since you believe in what you’re selling. But in the flurry of a launch, there isn’t much room for sharing personal, unrelated introspections. And so at the end of it all, you may feel disconnected from your community. I felt it last year during MPMH, and again this year. Not that I’m complaining. I’m really proud…

The questions started coming: “So how do you…?”, “What happens when…?”, “Why do you..?” So I began trying to help her make sense of what I was saying. And then she asked me a question I hadn’t been asked before: “How do you know when it’s time to start a new interest?” I tried to formulate a response, but nothing came out.

It hurts consumers, authors, and generally, the entire industry loses trust because of a few bad apples. Fortunately for me, my first published book, Mini Habits, has been very successful. Unfortunately, it made me a target. I thought that if I were a target, I would receive some malicious 1-star review from competitors. And well, that actually did happen once.

One might think jellyfish are completely at the mercy of the ocean’s currents, but did you know that jellyfish are swimmers? There are two ways that jellyfish swim—one way is by collapsing their bell to propel themselves. Other types of jellyfish can move many small cilia to rhythmically push water in the direction of their choice (see video below). 3 Steps To Live Like A Jellyfish 1. Chill out.

To be a leader, you must make those around you feel, beyond a doubt, that you are fully in command and control. You must get people's attention, keep their attention and have them aligned to follow your orders or instructions.Command Presence is essentially presenting yourself as someone in authority, trusted and respected. This is partially done through the message conveyed by how you LOOK, how you CARRY YOURSELF, how you…

    28 May 2015 | 7:44 am
    Yes, I’m going to Ireland next! Who knew! As I shared with you in this post I have been looking for a place to stay and now I have been offered a room over the summer in Dublin and I’m leaving next week. This place too is only temporary so I’m still in need of somewhere to live after Dublin so if you have any suggestions or ideas then I would love to hear about them. I look forward to this new phase in my life and what it will bring – and who knows what that will be! One thing I know is that I don’t know and that I could never in a million years ever have imagined…

    20 May 2015 | 9:28 am
    It’s time for me to find another place to live. (I live with friends at the moment). The other day I spent a few hours under my meditation-tree nearby where I frequently go and I sat there and wrote, meditated and talked with (the higher aspect of) myself about different options and as it always is, there’s a part we have to play in taking responsibility and then there’s also the importance of really surrendering and allowing the higher part of us to do the rest. As I sat there I was guided to write an article where I just share my situation openly with you and after I have…
  • Relieve Suffering In The World By Waking Up

    Maria Erving
    17 May 2015 | 2:05 pm
    Question from a reader: I’ve been reading Talks with Ramana Maharshi. He is confronted by a visitor about his being enlightened yet doing nothing to alleviate suffering in the world. His answer was to the effect that to be awakened is the best thing one can do to alleviate suffering. Nisargadatta Maharaj said the same. I’m interpreting that to mean that once one has realized Truth, all judgment ceases and that person is no longer part of the problem. Since our judgments have a ripple effect there is no telling how much good may come from awakening! Do you agree with Ramana and…

  • Stop Being So Hung-Up On Your Ego!

    Maria Erving
    9 May 2015 | 8:05 am
    Stop making your ego so important. It’s incredible to hear people sometimes how hung-up they are on their ego’s and how desperately they want to get rid of it, yet they give it all the attention of the day. For hours everyday they indulge in their ego’s and what the ego thinks and what the ego wants and does and bla bla bla. We do all have a human aspect to ourselves as well as the higher divine aspect, but many people tend to forget that and thus make their life miserable by making their humanity wrong in some way just because they face some kind of challenge in their life.

  • Online Negativity: How to Create a Better Internet for Everyone

    26 May 2015 | 9:05 am
    Recently, I have been seeing frequent incidences of negativity online. For example, people snapping at each other. People criticizing at every single thing. People losing their temper at one another. While I don’t remember when the internet became such an angry place, I do remember it used to be more peaceful and welcoming. This was back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when people were generally supportive and having actual conversations online (as opposed to the sarcastic swipes we see today). I was already running my own websites…
  • Good Carbs vs. Bad Carbs [Infographic]

    14 May 2015 | 1:42 pm
    Recently I had the pleasure of working with 2 coaching clients who happen to share a common goal — healthy living and weight loss. And guess what: both of them have lost a combined 7 kg / 15.4 lbs in the past 2 months alone! While exercising / increased fitness was part of their personal action plan, a huge part came from eating a cleaner diet — cutting down on the unhealthy foods like chocolates and fried food, doing more home cooking, and going for the good carbs over the bad carbs. Today’s infographic gives you a lowdown on good carbs vs. bad carbs and the carbs you should eat…

    Hi everyone! Today I’d like to announce the closing of blog comments at PE. I’ve actually already made the shift a month ago, but am only announcing it now as I’ve been thinking about the best way to break the news (and also I’ve been busy with Soulmate Journey, coaching and other work). This is a decision I feel divided about, even today. However, I feel it needs to be done. For a while, I’ve felt burdened moderating comments at PE. Having run the blog for 6.5 years, I’ve seen many kinds of comments, from the good to the bad, from meaningful…
  • The Day My Pet Died: How to Cope When Your Pet Passes Away

    8 May 2015 | 12:22 pm
    January 28, 2015. I’ll never forget this day. It was the day my cat, Nancy Bird, died. He was 2. We (my husband and I) don’t know what led him to his death, and probably will never know. All we know is that he likely fell from one of the top floors of our building (we last saw him at the 9th floor before we went for our jog; an hour later we found his body on the ground floor). It’s either that (1) he slipped and fell by his own carelessness (quite unlikely), (2) he was surprised by someone/something and slipped and fell, or (3) someone pushed him off the building. We shudder to even…
  • Is It Too Late to Pursue My Dreams? [Ask Celes]

    12 Apr 2015 | 10:34 am
    Hey everyone! While we’re in the middle of the life purpose series (part 3 is coming up, stay tuned), today I’m excited to address reader Marie-Anne’s question on whether it’s too late to pursue her dreams. While Marie-Anne is 60, she asks a question that’s actually shared by many even in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. Most people tend to assume that it’s too late to pursue what they want to do, especially if they’ve been working in a totally unrelated field. So, is it too late? And if it’s not too late, what can we do? Watch my reply below. (If you’re unable to see the video…

    You will rarely find those 4 words together: Quick, Easy, Effective, and Free. So I recommend you take this seriously because you might not find that combination again. These are concrete steps that get real results. I’ll walk you through step by step. No catch. I’m just providing this list because I see too many people struggling when it can be much easier. No need to go take another marketing webinar, read another book, make more lists, or wonder if you should hire that telemarketer who “can get you listed in Google.” Let those go for now.

    Every year I go to a fun relaxed day of learning called Podcamp, where we learn from each other about the latest in social media. As I think about what social media topics most interest me, the one that rises to the top is how to stay out of the addictive nature of social media. So I decided to sort out my thoughts about it here and then maybe I’ll lead a session on this topic. I think I’ll even ask everyone in the session to power down their technology, and find out what happens. Withdrawal? Real connections? Here are my thoughts about the problem and some solutions. And…
  • Do Solopreneurs Get Sick Time Off?

    Val Nelson
    27 Mar 2015 | 1:12 pm
    I work for myself, which some of us call being a “solopreneur.” In a way that word sounds so lonely, as if everything is on your own shoulders. No employer and no employees to rely on. Some people think that means there’s no help, and there’s no room to be sick or a take time off. Well, I’m here to contradict those stereotypes: There IS Support. You better let in help or your business won’t make it. Seriously, every self-employed person who is making it has people behind the scenes who are helping in significant ways. It might be a spouse, an accountant, a…
  • Shyness and the Part that’s Hard to Talk About

    I saw an incredible movie recently, Buck. It’s a documentary about the real “Horse Whisperer.” It got me thinking about something that must be talked about, but is hard to talk about in public. So let me try. I’m goin’ deep and gettin’ personal here about the roots of painful shyness. The film told the story of Buck Brannaman, who is known for his gifted connection with horses, and training horses without using harsh methods. (His story was fictionalized in the book and film, The Horse Whisperer.) When you watch him with a horse, you can see why they call…

    “What do you do?” seems to be one of the most dreaded questions. Especially for people in transition or who feel like what they’re doing might be judged. It makes us squirm a little…. or a lot. It can be especially hard for introverts and perfectionists who like to think before talking and then speak in a thorough way. It’s hard to find a good simple answer! And yet, we are faced with this question so often. It might sound like this in your head when you get that question: “I better have something good to say, Now!” “They’ll think…

    I recently opened my local newspaper, The Virginian-Pilot, to find a touching story of William Jucksch, 89, who helped to liberate a Nazi death camp during World War II under the direction of General George Patton. Students from a local high school remembered Jucksch and his wartime valor with a banner in a well-traveled section of the city. Everything about the banner looked great except for one tiny detail. The hyphen. A dash of writing advice.   See my red circle in the photo? The students wrote “WWII- An Unexpected Liberation.” You might think, “Yea, I see the…

    When I decided to become self employed, my friends and family told me not to do it. They told me to stay in my job or, if I wasn’t satisfied with my current job,  to search for a new job. It took months for them to understand that I just wasn’t made to be an employee. We discussed over and over again whether becoming self employed is the right decision or whether I should go the traditional way of being employed. To me it was clear, that I didn’t want to be employed for the rest of my life and that I had to change my situation. I had headaches driving to work and I hated wasting 40…

    After a late night a couple of Thursdays ago (due to unexpected events), I woke up Friday morning on the tired side and with a full day ahead, I knew that I needed to lie down for a bit. So after our morning routine, I popped my head in to let my mum (who was staying over) know that I was going to lie down and that I would take care of putting the dishes away when I got up. While I was lying down, I could hear the clanging of dishes. I got up and popped my head into the kitchen (which shares a wall with our room) and told my mum that while I appreciated that she was trying to help, I had a…

Thank you to my amazingingly wonderful mother-in-love Andrea for sending this to me. This week has been pretty hectic as Drew and I finalized the details of our new car nicknamed The Red Rocket (after our favourite basketball team The Houston Rockets #clutchcity). It was also made memorable when I took our elderly neighbour Brian to Starsky’s (a local European store, which he had never been to) after learning about his love of ham and cheese.

To hear of any life being taken is difficult enough, but when lives are taken by a government force…legally….(?) well it’s just heartbreaking…and in-comprehensible. I’ve battled with how it can be possible to find a positive in such a dark situation…and my heart goes out to the families of those who were taken on Wednesday.

It’s funny because we seem to have it back to front in the west.. We look at happiness as some kind of mathematical equation. If we do X then Y will equal happiness. And it’s something I see all the time with my private clients who are looking to find their passion and do work that they LOVE.

You know – those things that you don’t really want to do, but you end up doing them anyway out of some kind of obligation. Those are the things that hurt us the most deeply are they not? Those are the decisions that we almost always end up regretting later on down the track. Why? Because whenever we do…

    If you've ever had tofu you'll probably have noticed that on it's own tofu is rather bland. BUT when it's mixed with something else…well that's when it takes on the flavor of whatever it's mixed with. It NEEDS those other ingredients in order to have an identity and flavor. I used to be like tofu; flavorless and without identity. This led to relationships where I settled, career choices where I settled, ultimately a life of settling, molding and melding in order to fit somewhere…anywhere.

    Positivity is greatly encouraged these days, be it in the everyday life, for working on your goals and dreams, coping with the setbacks or finding solutions for your small-big problems. But it is hard to adopt positivity as a way of life and become a total optimist if you don’t know the uses of optimism and how exactly positive thinking helps you. If you are unable to have a blind belief that ‘if you think positively, positive things happen’, you may find it very difficult and even irrational to stay positive in every situation without any reason whatsoever.

    “My only requirement for life is that I don’t get stuck in a rut.” – Malin Ackerman It was time for a break. No blogging.  No city traffic.  No hustling 5 people out the door by 8am. Time to reset.   Time to BREAK AWAY. We had an opportunity to take a vacation.  I booked our family’s first flight together. Traveling with 3 young kids.  No small feat. Time to roll the dice.  Time to create some memories. The anticipation of a BIG event is sometimes better than the event itself. Not this time. “Best week of my life.” – our 8 year old said…

    Guest post by Connie Stovall, Principal, Liberty Middle School In 1916, John Dewey said, “From the standpoint of the child, the great waste in school comes from his inability to utilize the experience he gets outside, while on the other hand he is unable to apply in daily life what he is learning in school. That is the isolation of school – its isolation from life.” This statement was made ninety-nine years ago, and yet it often still rings true of our students and schools today. What would happen if students had input into what they learned or how they learned it? Do you think they…

    Several years ago, I was at my youngest son’s little league baseball game. He was playing third base, and when a ball was hit to him, he bent over to catch it. Unfortunately, the ball slipped under his mitt and rolled right through his legs. The same thing happened again just two innings later. His team lost that game badly with a score of something like 8-0. Afterwards, the other team was cheering and our side looked depressed… except for my son, who had this wry smile on his face. He asked if I saw those two balls go under his glove. I told him I did, and he said, “Isn’t that cool?

When I was in my 40’s, I decided to stop caring what other people thought about me. Now in my 60’s, I realize that people were rarely thinking of me, and when they were, they were wondering what I thought of them.” I have heard that the fear of public speaking ranks just behind the fear of death and right before snakes.

For example, he would ask every night, “What does ‘that’s what she said’ mean?” I’ll be honest. I didn’t know how to respond… partly because at the time, I wasn’t completely sure what it meant.

    Excuses… we all make them. Topping the list is “I don’t have enough time.” I certainly know the reality of this excuse in my life. Trying to be a good husband, father, and businessman often overwhelms me resulting in a loss of productivity and ineffectiveness in all areas of my life. Excuses are damaging because they prevent us from taking purposeful action with our lives–action that can change us for the better. When we are operating inefficiently, we get bogged down in the weeds and miss real opportunities to experience greater meaning, joy, and growth. Life is too short…

    Steve Jobs was famously quoted during his Stanford commencement speech as saying “You can't connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well-worn path”.

Although I don’t disagree with this point of view, I also think there’s a limit to it.  Being content & grateful may have some merit to it but there’s a flip side to this coin, it’s your discontentment & dissatisfaction that will give you the fuel you need to do something…

    Passive aggressive behavior can take many forms. Generally speaking it’s best described as a non-verbal aggression, that will manifest in negative behaviors. It’s present when someone is angry at someone else, but will not or cannot tell them. Communication always has a good chance of resolving any conflicts. But when there isn’t a clear line of verbal communication the problem is likely to escalate. People who are being passively aggressive will not communicate openly, and honestly. Instead they bottle up the emotions. Putting up walls, shutting off verbally. Shooting angry…

    At its core, productivity is about doing things. Doing them in the most efficient and effective way possible. It's that simple, but then again it's not. The pursuit of productivity can become an obsession. Especially an obsession with tools. I've encountered far too many people who endlessly try to find the perfect task list app, the perfect tool for taking notes and storing information, the perfect technology to keep them on track.

Or, we see learning something new as a way to advance our careers in the future. There's nothing wrong with that. But a utilitarian end shouldn't be your only motivation for learning something. You can try learning something for the sake of learning it. You should also try to learn something for the challenge of it. Why Do It? There's far more to life than work. There's so much to learn that doesn't involved advancing…
