Rewriting the rules of success RSS



I drank too much red wine...

I drank like I used to live - no rules and in a moment. I had a blast with my friends, yet next morning the voice in my head (when I could hear it through my pounding headache) reminded me to administer full dosages of self-loathing and shame, so I did.  For three days worth.

My personal growth was ignited by my dad and Desiderata

As a little girl I heard Desiderata often.It was my parent's daily personal growth practice.  If you are not familiar with it or you want to refresh the memory of it.  Here is Desiderata to read or to listen. When trying to pinpoint the moment when I became consciously aware of spiritual, personal growth I cannot say when it happened, I was probably 12 or 13 years old, when my dad had conversations with me that I recall deep and profound. They blew my mind, rocked my world and made me feel like I had access to the world that not many knew. It was always in the realm of infinite possibility, the neverending pursuit of happiness and creating the life you want...

The proud legacy of working harrrrrdd

I see her work ethic passed through generations in my family, my father defying time and space with all the things he wants to get done, my sister, myself and now I even see some of that also in my children. My mother is cut from the same cloth, and even I married the man with that same programming. We all have that inherited resilience where we refuse to let go of the thing that we have decided to accomplish. And we take pride in it. The harder it gets, the more significant and more accomplished we feel. The more pain it creates, the better we feel when we finish. Oh, how much glory I feel in my body as...

So you think you know what your life purpose is? - Sorry, but you don't know half of it

Alongside my careers in communications, in business development and eventually the past decade as an entrepreneur, I have had an entirely separate side career, or more like the primary career. See, I am a foster mom to two beautiful, amazing and gifted children. These siblings arrived in our lives when they were only 13 and 4 months old, babies really.As we became trained foster parents, we were given a pile of papers, maybe 20-30 documents in a stack. In that stack of documents was listed all the children waiting to find a home.I remember sitting in a car with our family members, returning from the "family day" in the foster parent training to help our closer relatives understand what it...

Self-abandonment is the symptom of something that has happened a long time ago

I know I have mentioned it before, there is this trait in most of us as entrepreneurs: We are quick to start new things, but not so great in finishing them. And I do recognise that in myself. We move fast to the next thing, and we are always looking for that bright and shiny object. (Which reminds me to remind you about the Black Friday and Cyber Monday opportunity that is going away at Cinderella time today. However, this program doesn't qualify as something you can dismiss when something brighter comes along...in this one, you are required to commit - all the way through. But you can, because I have built it so, that you can.)So the bright and shiny...
