Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions


I can never make just one New Year's resolution, and I think that’s a good thing. Why not reach for as many goals as one can muster each year? Plus, I don't want to put all of my time and energy into losing weight- that would just drive me crazy. Instead, I always make a few resolutions for different areas of my life like: relationships, health, fitness, aspirations, family, spirituality, career, and self. This way as each year passes I am moving forward in as many ways as possible. I also don't beat myself up if I don't reach my goal in one year. Some goals take more time!

How to get over your fears and rock your life!


I recently attended a seminar in NYC where fear was a subject of conversation. Weather we think they are or not, fears often hold us back from what we desire most. In my own life, fear has definitely created the occasional virus of the mind. As much as I work on feeling fear but not allowing it to stop me from going after what I truly desire, it isn’t always easy. Are there any rumbling fears right now going on in your mind?

Listen To What Your Life Has To Say


Have you ever asked your life “how is she”? And that’s a rhetorical question, because of course we can’t talk to your life, but for some time now I’ve learned to “listen” to what my life has to say. Exactly, I’ve been treating my life as a separate person, I know what you must be thinking, “what is she talking about?” Well, what I’m talking about is that I’ve discovered that talking to myself is something that helps a lot, but not in the way that I’ve been looking for.

Defining Purpose


pur·pose [pur-puhs] 1. the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used,etc. Rewind… UK, 2002 – I am working my socks off in a busy advertising agency in the heart of cool east London, days filled with calls, meetings, laughs… and as soon as work is done it’s time for gym workouts, boyfriend, drinks, parties: complete busy-ness. I’m not going to lie, it is fun. But something deep is missing and oh, hello emptiness, there you are again my friend: What am I doing here? What’s it all for? What on earth is my purpose? What is my purpose on earth?

The Importance of Finding Your Divine Path


Most school counselors and career books take the practical approach and don't talk much about our divine nature. Part of the reason is that most people still operate under the belief that they will not be seen as credible if they talk about spirituality even though they themselves may be spiritual and draw a lot of their inspiration from such sources. The other reason is that spirituality is the leading edge and there are not many of us here, though it is spreading quickly. This important omission from career books and schools is in my opinion the reason why so many people hate their careers and feel trapped. There is only so much that can be understood through logical and analytical processes; what you lose sight of is very literally your soul.
