The Journey of Self-love: The Wonderful You Behind the Mask

18 Jul, 2018 , , , , ,

Self-love and self-esteem are closely bonded to each other.   When you don’t believe in your abilities, your value or your worth, your mind cannot respond in the opposite way.

We all have dreams. Some are big — things you hope to accomplish in a lifetime.

1 Jun, 2018 , , , ,

You know I’m a fan of lists, but this list is a bit different than the average one. It’s the Unhappiness Laundry list.   How is it different?   Well, unlike things like “buy stamps”, “go to the dry cleaners” or “pick up eggs”, the items on this list are intangible. They are internal, and […]

Our purpose, legacy, WHY and passion are more and more important to people than ever before. It’s no longer enough to just show up in the office, do your job and go home, just to do it all again the next day. We crave meaning. We want our work to impact lives, change the world […]

Guilt Free Ways to Say No

4 Apr, 2018 , , , , , , , ,

Are you a people pleaser? At one point or another, we’ve all been there. A friend asks for a favor and even though you really don’t have the time, you say yes. A colleague asks you to pick up some slack at work and even though you’re already spread really thin, you take on the […]

This spring, I’m challenging you to a mental spring cleaning. Why should tidying up be limited to just our homes?
