About Gratitude

I’m willing to place a bet that every single day, you are doing a number of things that don’t particularly fire you up. Consider the following questions: Do you wake up every day motivated to be at work on time? Are you jumping with joy whenever you embark on another trip to the supermarket forContinue reading “You Don’t Need Motivation, You Need Commitment”

Freedom Is About Being In Charge Of Your Time

In the coaching and mentoring circles I frequent, I am often told by marketing gurus that being self-employed is the essence of being free.

You Are the Fortune Teller

Earlier this week, I asked my Facebook tribe what a famous fortune teller would predict about their future. Some people took this question literally (“Why should I go to a fortune teller if I knew what they are going to predict?”).

The Art of Bounce-Ability

For most people, the thought of losing everything they have equates to their worst nightmare. The idea of being deprived of our financial safety net, our health and close relationships is one which is able to make our heads spin and cause us to break out in cold sweat.
