Perspective

Perspective
A life changing personal development lesson is one on perspective. How we feel,  does not come from an EVENT that happens. How we feel, comes from our INTERPRETATION OF AN EVENT that happens. It is easy to peg a situation as being a good thing or a bad thing for us.

Who Are You

Who Are You
Do you know yourself? Have you ever had a "numero-uno" date with yourself and your notepad? Who are you? Really, who are you? This is a fabulous question to ask. A great end of year gift to yourself is to write a one-page bio on you. Who are you right here, right now? The reason it is so important to explore this is because it gives you your starting point.

3 Questions That Define Your Roadmap To Success

3 Questions That Define Your Roadmap To Success
Here’s the main problem with the way that most people live their life: Instead of living the life they want, they live the life they are given.
