    Sit down and think, where you will be ten years from now? Will you be living at the same place, with same job and with the same habits? If you are satisfied with your life as it is, that’s fine, but if you want a different lifestyle, you have to do something about it. Your thoughts of today, and your habits, determine, to large extent, the kind of life you will live in the future. Based on your current thoughts, habits and behavior, what kind of life do you believe you will live ten years from now? If you are not married now, will you be married by then? How many children you will have…

  • 5 Ways Ego Interferes With Your Happiness

    The word happiness is defined in most cases as a feeling of contentment, or as a feeling ranging from contentment to intense joy. Happiness is an innate desire of the human being, and indeed it is our birthright. The universe in which we live is arranged to provide for our happiness through the dynamics of the law of attraction. That is, we draw to us that which we place our intent upon. If we focus on people, activities, even things that we love, or positive outcomes that we desire, we will draw them to us because our thoughts are a form of energy that act upon the workings of the universe.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure… Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do…

The feeling that there is no point to getting out of bed because this week is just going to be like last week. And the week before that. And the one before that. Aren't you frustrated with waking up in the morning and wishing the whole day could go by in a blink? Aren't you tired of yearning to get to the weekend so you may breathe a little?

    “You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.” ― Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People (1936). Don’t Panic! That’s what you tell yourself when you’re approaching the front door to a dreaded party. Sure, you look calm on the outside, but on the inside you're full of  questions: “What am I going to say?” or “What if I don’t know anybody?” If placed  in a crowd of unfamiliar people, you seize up and over-eat. You spend your time on hobbies like…

  • Being Different and Getting Over It: How To Accept and Improve

    Everyone's different: we flock together and become friends mainly because we have common interests. For example, the only reason why we're close to our acquaintances is because we support the same sports team. In many cases, being different reached extreme levels and could have caused us to become isolated from the people around us, particularly our loved ones. In my case, I was the only regular male student in my college class for a long time. It was difficult fitting in with my classmates, but fortunately, it all worked out in the end. However, being different can be seen as a flaw, and we…

    I’ve never told this story. Partly because I never wanted to remember it. And mostly because it’s painfully embarrassing. It started out as a typical day prospecting for real estate sales. I parked my car at the end of the street, stepped out, took a deep breath and steadied myself for an onslaught of rejection. I carried a small notepad with me with 50 checkboxes on it. I wouldn’t allow myself to get back in the car until I had 50 rejections. Oh, I was used to the blinds being drawn as they saw me come up the street, or the eye through the peep-hole then…

    It has often been said that the best way to predict the future is to invent it. And continuing to invent your future is going to be essential to your future and the future of your business and its ultimate success or failure. Peter Diamandis said to me back when we had him on the cover back in 2013, “Either you disrupt your product and company or someone else will. Standing still equals death.” So the responsibility of leading innovation falls on the leader: YOU. You have to be the social architect of innovation in your organization.

    Do you often make mistakes? Yes? I know, me too. Do you beat yourself up for days, sometimes for months? I used to re-live certain mistakes even years later, the pain and embarrassment of the whole scene making my temperature rise, my cheeks turn tomato red, and tears welling up in my eyes. Until a few years ago, when I became a little wiser. Or maybe I had already made a few too many mistakes to care so much. I had realized that only those who do nothing can be perfect (but obviously you don’t want to be that perfect, right?) I found that mistakes are part of the learning process and…

Maybe the first thing you do is grab your smartphone and read your mail, text to your friends, or read the news. Most people, when they wake up in the morning, are not fully conscious and focused. It takes a few minutes until they get focused. For some people, it takes much longer. Others, are more extreme, and don’t want people talking to them until quite long after they wake up. But what do you do afterwards? Everyone goes through a…

    There are speakers and there are remarkable speakers. You heard the former and you talked about the latter. The first time I joined Toastmasters was in June 2004. I have seen many speakers who know the mechanics of excellent speaking. I have heard thousands of speeches and I can only name a few of them. Some speeches I found difficult to remember after the speakers delivered them for seven minutes. As an evaluator, I found myself actively noting almost everything the speaker delivered so that I can share something of value. But most audiences aren’t evaluators. They do not listen to…

But to deliberately imitate others is a mistake.  Do not sacrifice your individuality. Jason said that he wanted to imitate me. He tried. I told him that he should stop trying for that will delay his growth, and make him look like a copy cat.

    Powerful questions are perennially important. 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.

  • Thinking of Buying a Rental Property in a College Town? Do Your Research First

    17 Apr 2015 | 7:14 am
    If you have kids in college, or kids about to go away to college and you’ve looked at the price of on-campus housing these days, you may have thought to yourself, “boy that’s expensive.” Then, the investment side of your brain kicks in and you start to wonder about the potential return on buying a house near the college and renting it out to your daughter and five of her friends. If you’ve mulled over thoughts like these, rest assured, you’re not alone. According to an informal survey of Coldwell Banker agents conducted last year, more than one-third of agents across America have…
  • Recovering from a Massive Trading Loss

    15 Apr 2015 | 7:15 am
    The most important element of successful trading is the ability to manage risk and maintain composure. Even the best traders in the world lose on a regular basis.  Success in trading therefore is not about avoiding losses.  In contrast, we must embrace the process of losing and learn to lose gracefully.  The best traders are also the best losers.  We learn that losing is simply a part of trading that can’t be avoided or ignored.   My friend Ross Cameron at Warrior Trading works extensively with new traders to help teach them the skills to maintain composure in stressful situations.

You save more time using price action and see more trading opportunities There are hundreds of trading strategies available that advertise their performance, how accurate their market readings are and what you should do to get your hands on them. Yet, time and time again, the one form of trading that always seems to outperform the rest is price action trading. What is price action trading you ask?

    You know something in you has changed permanently when suddenly the songs you’ve heard thousands of times, the ones you’ve listened to on repeat, the ones that have always evoked the same feelings in you, now sound like new songs with new meanings and feelings attaching to them. It’s as if you haven’t heard the song in years – you almost can’t remember how it used to make you feel – yet you still have the lyrics memorized by heart. And now you get to fall in the love the song all over again in a different way, at a different time in your life.

    In the summer of 2014 I worked on a small, family-run organic vegetable farm in Midcoast Maine. I didn’t grow up in the country, nor did I ever have a huge interest in becoming a farmer. There was nothing really bringing me except this gut, instinct feeling that I wanted to feel what it would be like to live a simpler life, void of laptop screens and days spent running from place to place. I also wanted days spent outside in the hot sun with my feet touching the earth, using my body, using my hands. I have a feeling most typical citizens in Westernized countries don’t know much…

You hit a wall, then you pound your fists and head and arms and feet into it over and over and over again convinced this is the way, until it finally hits you that you’re literally killing yourself trying these same old ways. That’s when you put your fists down, take a look at the damage, accept there’s a wall there, and make the only choice you have left: change directions – change your ways. Another way…

    It’s tough to make a living writing books. For some of us, it means we do our best to get noticed. For others, well, they cheat. The problem with cheating is that it’s not done in a vacuum. 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.

    As the most graceful creatures of the sea, jellyfish float effortlessly in their dark blue world. 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.

    Nice eyes (for a snake). Snakes aren’t found atop the “favorite animal” list of many people any person, but we can learn from their slithery ways. About a dozen times per year, snakes shed their skin and leave their old skin on the ground for someone else to clean up (I’m looking at you, park ranger). One way to live like a snake is to be messy and make other people clean up after you. Call me an optimist, but I think we can find a nicer way to live like this hissing reptile. Why Do Snakes Shed Their Skin? You are better than a snake. You know why? Yes, there are…

    True transformation occurs only when we can look at ourselves squarely and face our attachments and inner demons, free from the buzz of commercial distraction and false social realities. We have to retreat into our own cocoons and come face-to-face with who we are.  We have to turn toward our own inner darkness.  For only by abandoning its attachments and facing the darkness does the caterpillar’s body begin to spread out and its light, beautiful wings begin to form. ~Julia Butterfly Hill __________________________ This past month, I’ve been supporting the 24 people who are going…

    No Colds Or Flu This Winter I just finished the coldest ski season I can remember as we had a long, brutally freezing cold winter here in Ontario (and I’m sure in many other regions of North America).  With a FULL ski season which means being outside for several hours for an average of four to five days EACH week all winter long, I was exposed to the elements a lot more than most people who get to stay warm indoors working inside offices. However, despite the coldest winter on record, I still did not catch a cold or flu all season long.  In past winters even when it was not as cold, I…

I did not make this up – it’s well accepted among the ski pro industry and community. I do about 60 days per season. When I hear recreational…

    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…

    For a long time, I wanted to set up this friend of mine. She’s attractive, smart, and an overall great catch. But every time we talked about love, dating, and possibly setting her up, she’d respond with, I’ll leave things to fate. At first I thought, Okay, maybe she’s just not ready. But then one year passed. Three years. Five years. It’s been six years, and she’s still single. While there’s nothing wrong with being single, my friend does want to be with someone, but she does nothing about it, instead always saying, “I’ll leave things to…

    “It’s been said that life begins at 40, not so. For me life always begins tomorrow.” ~ Burt Goldman Quantum Jumping is a method for people to source fresh ideas, answers, and skills from alternate versions of themselves. The technique itself is based upon quantum physics and the idea that an infinite number of alternate universes already exist. There may be a parallel universe where Obama didn’t win or perhaps another universe where you were born in Thailand. The possibilities are endless. For every decision you make, every turn you take, there exists a parallel universe where you…

    Hypnosis – huh – what is it good for? Absolutely anything. That might be a slight exaggeration, but the truth is that hypnosis is being used more and more regularly to treat a wide range of conditions. Apart from its well-known benefits to help people quit smoking, lose weight, gain confidence, and a host of other self-help issues, the practice is gaining wider acceptance in the treatment of illness and disease. One of the problems with hypnosis is the word itself. It’s been hyped to the max in Hollywood movies and the like, when in reality hypnosis is nothing like that. Hypnotizing…

By discharging these negative feelings, you will not only increase the happiness in your life, but everything else will get better too! Money, health, relationships, looks, you name it!” – Lester Levenson I want to tell a story from a friend that stopped me in my tracks when I first read it.

It’s as though you have a spiritual guide with you at all times helping you live your highest purpose. But how connected are you to your soul? Do you hear it clearly when it speaks to you? Are you living the life of affluence, happiness and bliss your soul desires for you? Sadly, many of us are not. At least not as fully as we could be.

  • 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…

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…

    Can you relate to this networking event nametag?That dread of so-called “small talk” is a classic concern of introverts. It might be the crux of why we are sometimes seen as anti-social. If we’re going to stop dreading certain social situations (networking events, holiday parties…), we have to deal with our dread of small talk. Common worries I’ve heard from introverts: “People think I’m a snob just because I’m not interested in the conversation.” “I’m not shy and I am friendly, but I don’t like small talk about…

As we kick off the 2015 season, Major League Baseball execs will institute several new rules to speed up the game and make fans happy.

But more importantly, Schock, who has come under fire because of a spending scandal, is best known for a ‘Downton Abby’-inspired office and bare-chested cover photo for Men’s Health. Heavy on the style. Light on the substance. What’s worse, Schock was a rising millennial politician. At 33 years old,…

    Spending a great deal of time in office, sometimes doing extra hours just to ensure your good position in the company, and living with the team as one family, all are qualities of efficient employees who take a company to all new heights. They are good employees and are supposed to maintain the office decorum and value the work ethics but first they are human beings. They have an instinct called love in them, and this naughty instinct makes some employees fall in love with each other, and majority of the times the office romances have disastrous consequences not only for the couple but for…

Finally I had reached a point where I knew my current situation was unsustainable. I had to change, and I had to change big. So I left my well-paid job and moved from Paris.

    #givepresence is a challenge, a movement, a lifestyle that LULULEMON introduced in December 2014. It was a way of encouraging us to consider that the greatest gift we could give each other was/is our presence.   They created a whole site dedicated to this movement and truth be told, every season of our lives is gift giving season (not just at Hanukah or Christmas). Every day we are all invited to give of ourselves to others and our world in a way that leaves them better than we found-a little sweeter, a little more energized, and little more loved. #givepresence is an invite for everyday…

    I’ve always been a fan of track & field. There are so many different events that make up track & field. Some athletes are track stars while others excel at the field sports and some compete in both. What I love about track and field is the variety. It’s an individual sport and a team sport. This reminds me of the journey of life. We are all part of a greater team and yet an essential part of the process is finding the sports/events that we excel at. Why is this important? Because by training/refining/competing in the sports that we are great at, it gives our team a…

    Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel, the man who many credit for the creation of Las Vegas’ now notoriously known nightlife. “Bugsy” was a Jewish mobster and according to FBI records, one of the most ruthless and feared gangsters of his time, clearly nothing that relates to original “Feeling Success” material, so why is this article of Bugsy written? No, not to inspire you to be some sort of wannabe gangster, but instead to look past all of the infamous mobsters’ negative traits, and see what positive traits one can learn from.

The music tycoon was one of United Kingdom’s top charity donors coming in at number 165, as he makes the annual Giving List for the first time. He apparently gave away $1.6 million pounds over the course of just one year which ranks him very high among celebrities. His generosity leads him to more success, and it always has. He has a whopping net worth of nearly half a billion and Simon Cowell has been a well-known philanthropist for some time now as his accumulated wealth is a…

    Dutch painter, Vincent Van Gogh is universally widespread known for being a legendary painter who had major influential power during the 20th century. He was known as an impressionist painter who created many visual portraits of landscapes and people. And although he is an iconic figure today, he was not during the period of time he was alive, as he was fairly poor and unknown to the public. Van Gogh lived a short life and suffered from mental health issues throughout which led to his death at just age 37. His art work, however, would live on essentially forever. Here’s 30 powerful and…

In the speech Gaiman talks about the importance of passion, failure and the many other lessons he learned along the way of achieving his dream of being a writer. Here are the things he wish he’d known when starting out: Firstly, when starting in the arts, you have no idea what you’re doing. If you don’t know it’s impossible it’s easier to do. And because nobody’s done it before, they haven’t made up rules to stop anyone…

    5 Apr 2015 | 8:24 pm
    Every single day, I find myself fascinated by the idea that we become what we think. When I was 12, I took piano lessons from a woman in my neighborhood. She was a rather eccentric woman who, as I look back, was probably a bit ahead of her time. Her perspective on the world was very spiritually-oriented. This woman was all about energy, and took the notion of higher consciousness to a whole new level. At the time, all I really wanted to do was learn to play the piano. I had no interest in becoming more spiritually mindful at age 12. What I didn’t realize at the time, however, was that she…

Yesterday, I left the cocoon of our villa to visit the beautiful town of Ubud. And oh my, what nuggets of wisdom I collected while I was there! Wayan our driver picked us up early. He bounded over to see us, his usual cheerful self, grinning from ear to ear. But Wayan is no ordinary driver. He knows stuff. And that’s…

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. It’s this idea that once we figure everything out – THEN we’ll be happy. And yet…

OK so…I’ll explain. How often do you do things because you feel like you should? 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…

    Dutch spiritual writer Lisette Thooft wrote an outstanding article in the May / June 2013 edition of a The Intelligent Optimist magazine in which she succinctly summed up the core principles of the New Spiritualist movement. This grouping is often identified with the phrase “Spiritual but not Religious”.  The basis of the article is that an increasing number of people over the last 30 years have moved beyond organized religion into a realm where they believe that there is “something” beyond our ordinary reality.  This “something” points to a more inward and direct connection…

    Very often I will get asked by a business owner, “How can my business survive in today’s marketplace?” My heart breaks a little when I hear the question, I find it painful that one has the goal of merely surviving. I want every business owner to have the goal of thriving. It’s possible! You’ll first need to understand why the marketplace is so tough, then its matter of coming up with a marketing strategy and plan of attack.

When I left corporate America and entered into the world of entrepreneurship I thought that being a smart business woman gave me a leg up. Boy, was I stupid! I had a very cool idea, all my friends and family said so! But I did no research on my market. I didn’t know who my buyer was, and what’s worse I couldn’t reach enough of them to support my business.

Why? There are lots of reasons but in many cases marketing is the missing piece. They’re too small minded about their business. (Sorry, I’m not trying to be mean here, just honest :-).)

    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. It wasn't until I got to know me, understanding what was blocking me from sharing me with…

  • How Many Times Do You Ask Yourself: Who Am I?

    Matteo Trovato
    10 Apr 2015 | 6:40 am
    Sometimes we don’t realize it, but we are far from understanding who we really are. Our parents, colleagues and the society around us pretend to teach us how to live, by deliberately neglecting how these teachings have the potential to dim our true identity.When this happens, we find ourselves on roads that someone else forced us to walk. We have to deal with life choices that probably don’t belong to us but to others. In essence, we are living someone else’s life.At times we find ourselves giving up, when instead we should persevere; while other times we insist, when instead it…

    Matteo Trovato
    25 Mar 2015 | 10:56 am
    Many of our beliefs are just as crazy as they sound, but when we hear talking about them since our childhood (youth), we end up considering them as the norm.In Ancient Greece, for example, people thought that the Earth was the center of the Universe and that all the planets, stars and the Sun revolved around it. By the 16th Century, Galileo, Kepler and Copernicus proved the geocentric model wrong.Beliefs can be found in anything related to how we live our life; being it a relationship with a person, a thing or an emotion. Whatever it is we go through in our life, our mind can make it…

    Like most guys, I’m a huge fan of martial arts films. Recently, while watching a film, I read a Bruce Lee quote that made me pause and consider his life from a different perspective. When you hear the name Bruce Lee, entrepreneur is not the first word that comes to mind.However, before he was a world famous actor and pop culture icon, he was in fact an entrepreneur. During the 60’s, he opened and operated several martial art schools in Seattle and Oakland and was focused on teaching martial arts until the glitz and glam of Hollywood came calling.The quote that jarred my thinking…

    Freedom is the one thing we love more than anything without realizing it and it is also the one thing we fear the most. Freedom is the scariest thing to the ego.Don’t we all look forward to vacations? But what does vacation mean?Vacation means to vacate.  While you are on vacation, you vacate your ego and your mind. There is no phone, no tv, no past, no future, no people having demands on you and you don’t have to think or worry or care about anything.You just relax. That’s a vacation.But think about this: what are you vacationing from?In all great teachings, liberation is seen as the…

    James de Garmo
    4 Apr 2015 | 4:25 pm
    One thing I’ve noticed that people have in common who berate themselves for being unsuccessful is that they don’t take action.  It seems to me that they’re waiting until they want to do something about it before they take that action, but because they feel that everything is futile, they know that they’re never going to want to take action towards a better life because it means that they would have to have a certain degree of faith in a positive outcome before they even bothered trying. It came to my attention that someone had posted a short mention of my book on a website called…

    If you were to take a look at what you wanted your life to look like from the perspective of who you were five years ago, what would you see?  Would you see dreams come true, goals achieved, things basically tracking on schedule?  Or would you see a graveyard of your desires? It’s always awful when we don’t get what we want, but it’s sometimes even worse when we do.  Mostly this is due to what I call Damage to Desire, which I explain in The Right Question.  But what’s a good way to make sure this doesn’t happen again?

    James de Garmo

      For many years, I was what the average person would call a “perfectionist”.  This meant at the time that I wanted to make sure everything was just right before I’d call it acceptable.  I wanted every detail perfect.  I prided myself on my perfectionism. With the benefit of hindsight, I now fully understand that all I was doing was revealing how afraid I was that things wouldn’t be good enough.  I was worried that people would judge my standards as being too low if I allowed something to be called ‘finished’ when it wasn’t perfect. However, I want to illustrate some…

    Cook it first, maybe? Or is that not a “basic”? If you’ve ever tried to master anything, you’ve learned the importance of “the basics”.  And there are a few things about the basics that it’s important to remember, re-learn, or learn the first time if you never discovered them. I’m going to share it a little anecdote here.  It concerns a monk who went to study martial arts.  There are many variations of this, but I’ll simplify it. For many months, the monk’s teacher told him to stand at a large bowl of water and slap the surface…

  • Law of Attraction: Shifting Energy When You’re Freaking Miserable

    Kelli Cooper
    20 Apr 2015 | 3:04 am
    While not always the case, many people often start working with law of attraction when the shit has really hit the fan. There may be a bit of desperation. Things really suck and they are willing to try anything to bring some relief. The idea we can control our reality through our thoughts, feelings and beliefs gives a glimmer of hope that maybe, just maybe, life can get better if we can adopt some more empowering and positive ones. Maybe, just maybe, we don’t have to keep suffering and letting our life be dictated by outside forces. The concept seems simple enough, but as anyone who…

This post is courtesy of a question one of my very regular readers asked me in one of her comments. She wanted to know about signs that what we want to manifest is on its way.

      So, today we have another post based on some reader questions that were left on a post about some things screwing up your manifesting mojo.  Hi Kelli. Could you explain the exact process you use when you want to attract something? You just ask once or think about it once and focus on feeling good by getting on with everyday life and forget about it? You don’t visualize? Also. Could you explain this? ‘Also, you might want to know that you can not think about what you want ever again besides that first time, and you would still get it. Crazy, but true.’ *Do you have an article on…

Hey Kelli, I loved this email because it was such a good reminder.(An email I sent to my list talking about some recent manifestations of mine and if you aren’t on that list, shame on you ;)) It reminded me of something that happened to me recently – I lost an earring at work, one that I really liked and was sad to lose.

    When it comes to creating our reality, there is no down time. Every second, we are shaping our experience with our predominant thoughts, feelings and beliefs. I made sure to throw in the word predominant because once we start consciously working with the law of attraction, we start getting all freaked out about our negative thoughts, bad moods, fears, doubts and all the other yuck that is part and parcel of the human experience. But, all we need to do to get things moving in our favor is feeling better more than we are feeling badly. That is much more manageable than thinking we need to be…

We lost our water for the better part of 3 days. A pipe hidden behind a basement wall froze 2 different times. It killed our water supply. Fun times. It’s surreal when a modern convenience is taken away. It felt like we were camping in the 1790’s, but with lights, heat and Wi-Fi. The first time the pipe froze we cursed nature. The second time it froze everyone cursed me.  Yikes! After the first freeze…

Despite his amazing intellect, Einstein wasn’t as strong in math as many of the other physicists of his day.

In our world, it typically means doing what you say you’ll do and making sure to do your part to the best of your ability. When we conducted our research, accountability was a term we identified as absolutely essential to happiness in life. We determined, however, that it has a much broader and more powerful meaning than the one above.

  • How To Escape From Crab Mentality

    15 Mar 2015 | 4:45 am
    The post How To Escape From Crab Mentality appeared first on Liberty Frontier. Crabs. Crabs in a bucket. Funny little creatures. I remember as a boy going to the beaches with my family. Me, my dad, my brother – we’d spend a few hours looking through the rock pools and finding crabs. We had those silly little fishing nets, and caught them pretty easily – although some were surprisingly fast. We always threw them back. I remember seeing how if there were a few crabs all together, they’d just climb over each other. It really slowed them all down, as they would either slip…

  • 10 ways to deal with negative and difficult people

    20 Apr 2015 | 3:02 pm
    We all come across negative and difficult people. Sometimes its people we love dearly, or know well. But that doesn’t make it any easier. I know people who I call good friends, but sometimes I just dread having to deal with them, because they are difficult by nature. Sometimes they hold grudges against people, think others are trying to ‘best’ them, or are just being so negative it affects others. There are a lot of reasons why we still deal with people like this. Sometimes they are family, and we can’t just give up on them. Other times it’s because we are compassionate and feel…

    We all want to have a fun, fulfilling, and satisfying relationship that is going to last until we grow old together. Unfortunately, (or fortunately) it just doesn’t always work out that way. Things always start off well in the beginning, or it wouldn’t have started at all, right? But this ‘honeymoon’ period can’t last forever, and you start realizing things about your partner. Things that took a while to surface, and the cracks start to show.

  • 10 Strategies to Work on Your Level of Self-Confidence

    16 Apr 2015 | 2:01 pm
    Do you consider yourself to be a confident person? Do you say “sometimes”? Confidence is an intangible essence that is the difference between being scared, and feeling authoritative and able to tackle anything. When you feel confident, you don’t see challenges as something that you can’t overcome. You see yourself as unstoppable, and see the path laid out far ahead for you. On the other hand, if you lack confidence you feel afraid. Challenges seem impossible to overcome, and it’s difficult for you to see ahead into the future. We all come across challenges in our lives that make us…
  • 10 Ways to Improve Self Esteem

    15 Apr 2015 | 10:41 am
    Self-esteem is widely measured by seeing what people think, and believe about themselves. What kind of person do you think you are? What do you consider your abilities, strengths, and qualities to be? Do you have positive or negative thoughts when you think about your future?
