    We often hear the phrase, “Fake it till you make it.” I know the loving intent people have when saying it, but it has dangerous consequences. It’s a common catchphrase that suggests you imitate confidence so that the confidence produces success, which will seemingly generate real confidence. But I have found that when people fake anything, they only produce more fakeness, and that leads to disconnect, trouble, misery and ultimately failure. When people fake anything, they only produce more fakeness, and that leads to disconnect, trouble, misery and ultimately failure. Let me…
  • 7 Positive Ways to Be More in Touch with Yourself

    A lot of emphasis is put on the relationships we build with other people, but the only way to do that is to start a good relationship with ourselves. Creating a healthy relationship with yourself is not about thinking you're perfect and boosting your confidence 24/7. It's more on being open to your flaws, owning up to your mistakes and eliminating your inhibitions. If you can't even admit to yourself your own emotions and thoughts, then there's a good chance that you can't fully show who you are to others. Being open to yourself is a lot more important that being open to others. It begins…

    Do you find yourself setting the same goals year after year? Perhaps you’ve been trying to lose 50lbs for the best part of a decade now, or you’ve spent years struggling with debt. You might have a big dream (perhaps writing a novel, getting a new qualification, or starting your own business) ... but it never feels like the time is right. It’s tempting to wait for a huge stretch of uninterrupted time so that you can work on your big goals. But be honest – how often in the last few years have you ever had that sort of time available? For the vast majority of us, there’s simply no…

    Talk to almost anyone today, and they complain about having “no time.” It is obviously a boast disguised as a complaint when you hear this. Our most frequent response when we hear someone say how crazy-busy they are: “That’s a good problem to have” or even “Better than the opposite.” And it isn’t ER nurses, doctors or people with three different minimum wage jobs who say they are “crazy-busy.” It is people like you and me who are lamenting our own self-imposed busyness. Being busy isn’t the problem; it’s what we…

    Last week, I blew a thousand bucks to consult a guy to take my business to the next level. That was a thousand bucks for an hour of his time. I initially went in the call with the mindset of asking for specific strategies and tactics to promote my blog, but instead, it turned into a philosophical hour where he taught me how to become a better writer. And you know what? Most of the insights he gave me were things I already knew, things I had done before and things I know I have deep down inside of me. Ever felt had that "duh" moment where you tell yourself, "I should have just listened to…
  • 7 Life Lessons I Learned From Professional Fighting

    Thai Nguyen
    14 Aug 2014 | 11:06 pm
    1000 x punches, 1000 x kicks, 500 x knees, 500 x elbows. For 6 days a week, 7 hours each day, that was life. It’s called Muay Thai—the art of 8-weapons. Thailand is the birthplace and mecca of Muay Thai, and for 18 months I lived and breathed it. I don’t have anger issues, or a ton of bottled-up frustration—in fact, the most gentle, kind-hearted people I’ve ever met are professional fighters. The stereotype that fighters are more bloodthirsty than vampires is unfortunate. So why on earth would anyone engage in something where pain and injury is guaranteed? It’s that paradoxical…

Everyone gathers into a circle, and one by one, they answer the question, "What are your goals for next year?" The answers fly in enthusiastically: "I'm going to lose 100 pounds!" "You'll find me at the gym, five days a week!" "I will write my first novel!" "Count on me to read 50 books this year!" One year passes. The people gather into the circle again.

    In last week’s post, I promised to share the top sales strategies of one of the greatest salesmen who ever lived, at least in our lifetime no doubt: Mr. Steve Jobs. While Steve is known for his genius marketing and pulling Apple from the precipice of disaster and captaining it into the most valuable and beloved brand in the world, he was able to do all this because he was the ultimate salesman. And a genius one at that! Most especially because he is not known or remembered as a salesman, but by all the other accolades given to him by others: genius, revolutionary, leader, rebel,…

    Now this is stating the obvious, but starting a business is no easy task. And starting a business with little to no funding or experience can be downright daunting. Yet entrepreneurs are out there doing it every single day. Most importantly, they are succeeding at it. So what do they do to make it all work? Well, that’s the million-dollar question...  I recently interviewed the founders of Barefoot Wine, Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey, who have experienced the highs and the lows of bootstrapping a business, seeking their best advice.

This week I will share the action plan on how to wake up the hero within. I think it is appropriate to start this post with a quote from the man most remembered for playing maybe the most iconic SUPER hero of all time and then went on to become an extraordinary hero in his own right, Christopher Reeve: “A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” I am committed to helping you…

    Advice to Writers from Top Writers Advice to Writers from Top Writers Although the Creative Writing course that I took as a part of my informal liberal arts education was not what I expected, there were several pieces of advice that I found useful. After listening to the first session, I abandoned the course, but my instincts kept on telling me to return to it so I listened. Taking courses as a part of my informal learning has stretched my beliefs regarding what a course is supposed to be. The creative writing course consists of videos and audios of top authors and poets distilling their…

    Negative thinking takes a huge toll on our energy. It prevents us from enjoying every moment that life has to offer (good and bad) and from reaching our goals. We work a job that we really don’t care for, instead of making our vocation a vacation (the act of enjoying what you do for a living). I know what this is like because I spent most of my life thinking negatively and had no clue what was wrong with me.  What was it that made me different than others who were successful and frolicked around happily? One day I vowed to myself that I would figure it out and I did!  Here it goes…

    It can be a challenge to overcome negativity, especially when your world is particularly chaotic. Perhaps your supervisor at work gave you a particularly bad review for a recent project or maybe your family is undergoing some financial issues causing tension in the household. Whatever the stimulus that’s negatively affecting you, it’s important to realize that you do have a choice. You can choose to be positive or choose to be the opposite. For overall wellness reasons, it’s always better to choose the former. Certainly, it can take practice to look on the sunny side of…
  • Five Relationship Assumptions to Avoid When Money is Tight

    Saying to an entrepreneur “don’t let money affect your relationships” is like saying “don’t let oxygen affect your breathing.” Without one, it’s awfully hard to have the other. What I tell my coaching clients who come to me with money worries is that money doesn’t CHANGE anything; it REVEALS everything. Money acts as a magnifying glass. If you’re a poor jerk, you’ll be a rich jerk – only jerkier. If you’re a broke nice person, you’ll be a rich nice person – only nicer. So in these tough financial times, how…

Do all these books and workshops on the law of attraction, which promise great results, deliver what they promise? In case you don’t know, the law of attraction is a term, which was popularized a few years back. It refers to the power of the mind, which can attract and create success. This is nothing new.

    Are you afraid of some condition in your life? Here’s a life-transforming secret: that seemingly scary condition, whatever it may be, is not the problem. It is your reaction that is fearful. This is why if you will become conscious of your condition instead of afraid of it, you will change forever your relationship with fear. It is only within this special kind of inner-relationship that there is real safety, because now you are interacting with fear in an entirely new way. You are no longer letting it dictate to you how to act or what to do. Instead, you are aware of the fear. You are…

    There can be many challenges for people who are highly sensitive, including reactions from others (“Why are you so touchy?”), feeling “wrong” and with lower self-esteem in a culture that is so extroverted and high-speed, and being more vulnerable to stress (see my post Sensitive to anxiety). But there are also many strengths and values, both personally and socially.

Anxiety or some face of anxiety like doubt, worry, or fear… anxiety is the great silencer of the creative person.” Therapist and creativity coach Eric Maisel, PhD. He also notes, “There are many different kinds of anxiety reactions. Sometimes anxiety manifests itself as confusion and a weakness of mind and body. Sometimes it manifests as persistent worry.” “But one of the most common anxiety reactions is a phobic…

Fear can take various forms such as: social anxiety, phobias, performance anxiety or stage fright. Robert Maurer, PhD has studied social and neuropsychological aspects of achievement and creative expression for many years. He notes that even thinking creatively can induce fear: “Innovation triggers the alarm mechanism in the amygdala section of the brain that’s known as the fight-or-flight response,” he writes. “More simply put, the thought of change…

    What you do along your professional journey prepares you for what you are here to serve.

For John Paul II, it was his stage acting as a young man during the war that prepared him for the role of his life as the first Pope in the TV age. Steve Jobs described his early study of calligraphy as the catalyst to the idea of merging design and beauty into computers.

  • Start Thinking Outside the Box!

    20 Aug 2014 | 12:03 am
    Thinking outside the box is one of those metaphors that really need explanation. Thinking outside the box means to think differently, unconventionally or a new perspective. Some business consultants challenged their clients to solve a “nine dots” puzzle which required a creative solution. Often we are caught up with rules or conventions to solve problems versus thinking creatively.  In difficult times, companies bring in “change agents” to change the way companies operate and turn them around. Often, it is done under pressure of a Board of Directors, activist investor or even a…

The odds are against you to be an Olympic athlete too. The median United States household income is $46,326. Half of the families are living on incomes less and the other half exceeds this amount.  There are 110 million households in the United States and half earn less than $46,326! A few years ago, I read an TIME article that stated we need $75,000 a year to be happy. Does this indicate half of the…

  • 5 Ways to Avoid Overspending as a Multipotentialite

    18 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Editor’s note: this is a post by Saul-of-Hearts One of the trickiest parts of being a multipotentialite is figuring out which interests to spend money on. Specialists can spend years investing in the tools and resources they need to become experts. But as multipotentialites, we’re always asking ourselves, “Am I still going to be interested in this subject a few years from now? Is it worth investing in?” I’ve certainly spent more money than I would have liked on classes and equipment. I’ve bought domain names that I never ended up using and group memberships that…
  • Doing Your Own Thing Takes Courage

    14 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    You know that moment when you feel like you’re on the brink of a big change? You had sensed it lurking inside, for weeks or even months. When it finally reaches your consciousness, you are ready for it, practically bursting at the seems to get moving in a new direction. But you’re also NOT ready for it. In fact, there are times when you feel completely unprepared, completely disoriented. Changes are always some combination of exhilarating and terrifying. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a career change, a lifestyle change, or personal one. I’m about to embark on…
  • Why You’re Never Too Old To Be A Multipotentialite

    Bev Webb
    11 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Multipotentiality is not just for the young. Indeed many of us don’t realize we’re multipotentialites until we’re in our forties, fifties, sixties, or even older than that. Talk to a multipotentialite over the age of forty and you’re likely to sense a little bit of regret at not learning sooner that having multiple interests and career paths is both possible and a legitimate option. Don’t get me wrong – busting the myth that you’re just a fickle Jack of all trades comes as a relief – but, for us older multipotentialites, it can feel like we’re…
  • The Ultimate Guide to Dealing with Friends and Family Members who Disapprove of Your Multipotentiality

    4 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Every multipotentialite knows how it feels to share a new interest or endeavor with someone and receive a blank stare or a look of disapproval. You’re studying to become a physiotherapist? But I thought you were happy working at that tech company? That seemed like a good career… You’re in an art program. Why would you want to take a math class? When are you going to stop messing around with all of these different things and commit to something? The negative responses we receive range from genuinely confused but well-meaning, to outright nasty and critical. Here are a few…
  • Are You Blurring the Line between Work and Play?

    Bev Webb
    28 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    This one is for the self-employed multipotentialites. Have you found that the line between your personal and business passions is so blurred that it’s pretty much non-existent most of the time? With a job you get to “go to work” and then “come home” from work and leave that part of yourself behind at the end of the day. When you work for yourself, the dividing line between the two can be much more fuzzy. As a personal experiment, I set out to find out whether it’s okay to blur the boundaries, or whether we need some degree of separation between work and play.

  • 5 Reasons People Fail With Mini Habits

    Stephen Guise
    18 Aug 2014 | 1:08 pm
    photo by jayRaz My book, Mini Habits, has been a bestseller for more than seven months straight, selling over 16,000 copies in that time. It’s also the highest-rated habit book on the market because of the success people are having with it. It is in the process of being translated for publication in other countries. It easily outsells traditionally-published books in the same niche. In short, the mini habits strategy is very effective and it has made a big impact so far. But no solution is perfect, right? I hate to write that because Mini Habits is nearly perfect in theory (which…
  • The Shocking Truth About Failure

    Stephen Guise
    11 Aug 2014 | 8:25 pm
    If you try to roll a seven and instead roll an eight, did you fail? Or was it never up to you in the first place? (Photo by topher76) The shocking truth about failure: we tell ourselves we’ve failed when we haven’t.  Let’s get right to the point. Chance outcomes can NOT be considered failures. Sure, you might call a chance result “failure” in the technical sense of the word (i.e. not a successful result). Most of us, however, think of failure as a performance-based mistake or shortcoming of our own doing. But chance-based outcomes aren’t up to us,…

An elderly man driving in the area picked up on the radio conversation and told a nearby officer on foot to jump in his car. Officer now on board, he weaved his way through backroads he knew well, taking shortcuts to where he suspected the suspect would be. He was able to track the criminal down so the police could taser and detain him, which they did…

But what few realize is that the way we tend to “fight” bad habits actually makes them unstoppable.

It is that we are beginning to wake up, as from a millennia-long sleep, to a whole new relationship to our world, to ourselves and each other. ~Joanna Macy _____________________   A few weeks ago, a piece of devastating news came out: a large portion of the West Antarctica ice sheet has been confirmed to be melting.

The cardiovascular side of my fitness is back to where it should be so despite the injury, I also able to do the full 70 pool lengths rather than stay at the 50 length pool workout that I normally start the season with.

Usually these types of emails come from people in the Advaita and Non-Duality circles.   I can understand where they are because I know what it’s like to be in the space of pure awareness, in the nothingness and everything-ness at the same time, but those experiences if you will, are not permanent states. I wanted to write this article to reassure these people who find themselves in those types of confusing states that…

  • The Power of Attention (Stop Worrying)

    Maria Erving
    9 Aug 2014 | 3:57 am
    Life does not flow to us, it flows through us, and when that is seen clearly we cease to give any external, created things, any power. But as long as there’s a belief in something external that we think has power and authority over us (and that will bring to us what we desire and need) we invite suffering into our lives. Any beliefs in duality creates suffering and limitations, but as those are let go of, we are free to experience life as it really is.  Most people are unaware of the innate power that we all have and that we all use all the time, either constructively or…
  • Distant Healing Benefits

    Maria Erving
    6 Aug 2014 | 2:50 am
    The true self does not need healing, but the mind that believes in error needs to be redirected and set free. It’s the belief in duality that has made a person miserable and unhappy, and the Truth of who you are is what sets you free. Most of our problems, whether they are emotional, mental, physical or spiritual, usually comes from stressful thoughts and wrong thinking. These can be released and cleared by distant healing sessions. To me it’s important to combine healing sessions with spiritual guidance and coaching because I believe in personal responsibility and there is always…

  • Tough Times Don’t Last!

    Anthony Basich
    12 Jul 2014 | 8:08 am
    Tough times don’t last. Tough people do. And they last by working hard through their obstacles and challenges. No matter how tough the going gets, the tough get (and keep on) going. They last by perseverance. They last by self discipline. They last by determination. Sometimes hard luck is just inevitable. But it is your attitude toward your hard luck, and how you react to the situation, that determines what your outcome will be. A great example is a story that comes from “A Tale of Two Men,” by James Allen: I knew two men who, at an early age, lost their hard earned savings of years.

I thought I would be happy to be on my own. Long story short; I wasn’t happy at all. In fact I became a little depressed to say the least. That is until one night, (around 2am because I couldn’t sleep) I happened to be watching a late night Tony Robbins infomercial on QVC. The truth is, I couldn’t fall asleep that night and I was hoping that the infomercial would dull my mind enough so…

Teenage is the age when the first love of life begins, that feeling is just amazing as one feels like being on top of the world. Everything seems so romantic and fun-filled that time just flies. However, when it comes to heartbreak, when they get dumped or when they do not get the love back as they had expected, it is painful for them to deal with it. As teenagers are over…

A thousand feelings in an interval of seconds and you feel nothing short of flying and touching horizons and waking up in seventh haven. However, the question is whether its fate that makes you fall in love with a particular person or as we call it the science behind falling in love. Anyone who has ever fallen in love knows that the feeling is like being dizzy and crazily happy at the same time. However, this feeling…

    What determines our success? What is it that decides whether or not we make it big in life? Is it simply that some are born geniuses while others are fated to a life of mediocrity?“The moment we believe that success is determined by an ingrained level of ability as opposed to resilience and hard work; we will be brittle in the face of adversity.” – Josh WaitzkinEverything is a matter of perspective.

    I am a personal growth blogger and coach and the number one question I get asked by my readers is, “How do I stop procrastinating?”Procrastination is defined as the act of putting off more urgent tasks in favor of less important, more pleasurable tasks.We all do this.

For the next 365 days, I challenged myself to take one photo each day of life’s adventures and experiences. Why? Because so often we get so focused on our goals and pursuing the next thing (relationship, career opportunity, house, car, outfit, etc.) that we miss out on the amazing moments that happen in between. I wanted to become more present to the presence of God in the everyday. The original challenge. 373 days later (and counting), I am in utter awe as I reflect upon the past…

    pragmatism |ˈpragməˌtizəm| An approach that assesses the truth of meaning of theories or beliefs in terms of the success of their practical application. We become more pragmatic when we learn through experiencing contrasts and differences. The best outcome is when we keep what works and discard what doesn’t.  We then repeat that cycle to ensure we are improving and upgrading and not becoming stale . The process is one of compromise, and too many in our society have lost that ability. The reason is that we have different opinions of what works or what is necessary.  It’s our filters…

Human beings (who ironically just happen to be made of up to 70% water), often end up experiencing the same thing. We need to fight those artificial restrictions and regain our fluidity and shapelessness. We need to outgrow the boundaries of our childhood and upbringing. Isn’t it…

  • Silence is Golden When It Is Productive

    27 Jul 2014 | 8:56 am
    It’s been a few weeks since I posted and I have a good reason for that, I promise. You know how life sometimes gets in the way? Well it has, but while it’s been distracting it has also been eyeopening and new and exciting things have lined up on the horizon. Just typical! And that’s exactly why one should never give up in the midst of trying–as the proverb goes, “it’s always darkest just before the dawn.” During my silence I have been busy. Redefining and reflecting. It’s a good principle to follow every couple of months. Goals are there to be…

    Did you know that when I was a young girl I spent hours drawing plans of houses? I thought I wanted to be an architect, but I struggled with algebra. My math teacher couldn’t understand how someone with a perfect geometry score couldn’t grasp the algebra basics and I started to realize that my mind functioned differently. I thought in conceptualization. I wanted to create things. It’s no surprise that I’m committed to helping others create the lives of their dreams through Create-The-Dream today. There is something touching, inspiring and intriguing about stories. Not…

    You’d think the little voices in our head would be on our side, but truthfully they’re not always. They might think they are, trying so thoughtfully to protect us from the bold, adventurous moves we wish we’d make. They act as guardian angels, placing a precautionary blanket around us and a safety net below us to prevent our determined actions from crashing us down. They’re words of comfort, with good intentions, only they prohibit us from breaking through the realms of our fears into a world were our dreams can actually exist. Every successful person knows that while…

    A simple read with a very powerful message, Keith Cameron Smith’s The Top 10 Distinctions Between Millionaires and the Middle Class, clearly shows that perspective distinguishes the rich from the rest of us. Did you hear that? It’s not talent, skill, family line or anything other than a slight change of perspective that can make the difference in moving from the 98% to the 2%–the millionaire club. Smith shows you how to begin thinking and acting like a millionaire in 112 incredibly easy to read pages, covering the important topics of: Long term vs. short term thinking Ideas…

    We are all on information overload, basically we’re consuming too much information at a ridiculous rate. Information has a good side and a bad side, unfortunately most of us take in too much of the bad side. The Bad Side: Status updates from a person we went to high school with who is mad at the world. A really bad TV show that we watched just because it was on. A news story about an arrest in a state halfway around the country. The Good Side: Knowledge about something you’re studying. A book that relaxes and relieves stress. Happy news stories. There are several side effects of…

It’s honestly a get-up-and-just-do-it scenario. Every time. If there’s something you want to do to make your life healthier, it’s hard to look past the excuses. I personally think it’s because we look for the aesthetic part of a situation in hopes it will keep us accountable. Whatever you decide is important to you, whether it’s loose weight, eat healthier, get…

  • Learn the Secrets to the Road to Happiness

    11 Jul 2014 | 3:29 am
    I found this inspiring quote on happiness – “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light.” So is happiness like a light bulb that you can turn on with just a flick of a switch? Image source: A lot of people think that happiness is uncontrollable and dependent on external factors that influence your state of mind. But this really is not the case. NLP challenges this notion and actually fosters that creating and experiencing happiness is a choice and you can actually make it happen when you want it. It opens up…

    Current economic hardships in the nation have exemplified Malcolm Gladwell’s assertion that before big things of significant magnitude will happen and be felt, they should have been happening gradually in little quantums. (In his book: ‘The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference’).

  • Learning To Forgive Yourself

    Mind Snapshots

    Sometimes we do things that hurt other people. Sometimes we make the wrong decisions. We berate ourselves for our mistakes. After all, we acted in a way that disappointed ourselves. Our words or behaviors caused hurt and harm to others. We have to deal with the remorse and shame that won’t leave our thoughts. The weight of the guilt crushes us and keeps us from moving on. I had a falling out with my best friend because I had made mistakes that hurt her. After I realized my mistakes, I tried to make it up to her.

Especially if that person is someone we trust. Or if that person isn’t showing any kind of remorse. We become angry, sad, or confused. But holding on to our anger can weigh us down and prevent us from truly living.

    You’ve always wanted to get a free ice-cream? Then ask for it. You’re not going to get it anyway, but at least you tried. I tried. That’s what I’ve learned from Rejection Therapy so far. You are, just like me, still afraid of a rejection, but if you never try, you’ll never know. You have to ask for what you want in life, because maybe you just might get it. I doesn’t even has to be something big, just something you need at the moment.

We shy away from it because somewhere along the way we came to believe that rejection is failure, and we all try to stay just as far away from failure as we try to stay away from irritating mothers in law. But being rejected means you asked for something. Something you wanted or thought to be important, and you went out there and tried to get it. You stood up for something you believed in. You showed courage. It isn’t even rejection itself, but the fear of rejection that cripples us. That’s something I learned the hard way myself during my…
