Are We Born with Useful Skills?

I recently read this statement – ‘Each of us is born with three things: your name, your family, and your inherent limitations. You learn your name fairly quickly. You never really know your family. And most of us will never have a clue of how much, or how little, we...

Back Away From Angry People

Anger is a waste of time. I say that again and again, have written about it and stand behind it. However, anger does some good in your life. It lets you know that you are alive. Not depressed, not laying around in bed all day, but alive. It is a beginning. A reminder...

Distractions Can Destroy Your Work Day

Distractions can destroy your day, especially if you work in an office with numerous people and very little privacy. The short wall between your desk and the person in front of you is insufficient to the task as far as getting serious work completed. If you are on a...

Tap Into the Power Behind Your Thoughts

We all want to achieve success in our lives and in our work but are often uncertain of the best first step. We also want certainty, which does not exist. When you encounter a new decision point in your daily routine, you can instantly evaluate it. Your instincts...

Do You Know if You Have an Intuitive Mind?

Who are you? And no, it’s not a dumb question. People, myself included, ask who you are. Can you be yourself? Well how can you be yourself if you don’t know who your are? I know who I am today. I am a channel for good. I share all of who I am with my prospects and...

Be in the Now Not the Later

According to Buddha, everything exists in a state of transition. Nothing stays still, either negative or positive. We all do our best to hold on to the good and to reject the bad. Both the good and both will arise again and dissolve, yet again. The challenge is that...

It’s a Good Time to Focus on Your Loved Ones

Summer is in the air and on the calendar! Could be that love is in the air as well? This is a perfect time to focus on your loved ones. When can you express love to all you cherish? Anytime. Anytime at all. You can express love in many ways. It is not necessary to buy...

Do You Know What’s Missing in Your Life?

 It’s not about more education, more money or even more happiness. It’s about what is missing in your life. What is missing may be elusive, it may be obvious. Either way, you must be clear about how your life is now in order to determine what is missing. The ultimate...

When a Co-Worker Steals Your Ideas

You have finally found the right place and the right position in a new company! Yay! Your first few weeks were pretty good; you were left on your own because your Direct Report was out of town, a lot! After your first big meeting with your DR, you came away feeling...

How Much Sleep is Enough for You?

  Do you ever feel drowsy during the day? This could mean you have not had enough sleep. Do you find yourself falling asleep during your workday? Drowsiness is the last step before falling asleep. So, what is the mystery about sleep, how much do you require, and what...

Why Don’t People Keep Their Word Anymore?

If someone I know repeatedly lets me down – they have three chances unless they are family! – I cannot trust them anymore. It’s that simple at least for me. I do not want to be walked over by anyone, certainly not someone whose word is no longer good. And I don’t want...

Create the Life You Truly Want

Have you been hemming and hawing about your many pursuits in your daily life, both work and with your family and friends? It may be time for you to take an inventory of your life. Why an inventory? Because you may be stuck, rigid in place or too fluid as to where you...

Trust is Vital in Order to Succeed in Your Life

If you have little trust in others you may feel hopeless; hopeless in the sense that if you don’t trust others, you will most likely become paranoid and think all is coming to an end. People who cannot trust are overworked, under-loved and sad. If you do not trust...

Stay Healthy – Create Your Own Job Satisfaction

Low job satisfaction brings on other issues although these other issues stand by themselves as well. I’m talking about stress, anxiety, decreased productivity and high turnover. No matter the size of the company your work for, if you do not like your job, you need to...

Use the Right Word Not Its Cousin

Do you want to ask for something or do you just want to ask for something? “Just” is a word that diminishes whatever follows. To use the word ‘just’ in a sentence makes you look weak, that you do not mean what you are saying, that you are unsure of yourself and what...
