Why do people feel awkward or even guilty of celebrating their successes, whether they are small or big? Perhaps we feel we don’t deserve it or that we can “do more” or we say to ourselves “I’ll celebrate when…XYZ” and the “when XYZ” never comes… March 1st 2013 was a BIG day for me. This [...]

I started the New Year with a new morning routine. A routine of setting my intention for the day in order to send out the energy I want to achieve my goals… WOW that thing WORKS! Let’s first look at what is an intention: An intention is a message you are telling yourself for the [...]

I finally “got” what the word “choice” or “choosing” really means. I am not talking about intellectually knowing, because we all understand that…it’s more the feeling of choosing. Choosing is a way of being. To get there, massive growth was required to unmask the fears hiding deep in the abyss that were pushing me to [...]

“Top achievers are nor perfectionists but improvisers”From “The Opus” movie Decide on your goal, have a dream and start taking actions towards achieving it.

“I have confidence in myself”… or so I thought…! Repetitively in my life, I asked myself deep questions, reflected on my values and what I stand for. Self-confidence was always one of them.

Did you ever heard the line “it’s not about the destination but about the journey itself” When Thomas Edison was asked about his several attempts to invent the light bulb, he replied: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. Here’s what I read in an article at the “Motivated” magazine. [...]

DRESS YOUR AGE 6. BUY HIGH WAIST JEANS Avoid low-cut jeans, they add bulk to your midsection and originate the “muffin top look.” Instead go for high-waist styles that will hold everything in. Pants that are cut just below the navel are flattering for most women. Dark denim washes are more slimming and dressier than [...]

DRESS YOUR AGE 4. INVEST IN TAILORED CLOTHES They show off the best assets of your body. Avoid pieces that reveal too much skin, are too short, form-fitting or big.

DRESS YOUR AGE 2. WEAR NEUTRAL COLOURS Less is more! Some colours and prints can make you look youthful while others can drain your livelihood. Old looking prints and brighter colours have the power to age a tired face. Instead wear colours in blocks (solids rather than bright patterns). Also shop for black, gray and [...]

Are you familiar with the law of attraction? Either if you believe it or not, it works. It’s a law, like the law of gravity; you don’t need to believe it. It just works. Our brain is a transmitter. It sends and receives electromagnetic waves, called frequencies. By the law of attraction we receive the [...]

My word of the year which lead me to a massive growth period… Most of us associate trust with trusting others, sometimes we relate it to trusting ourselves. Trust is much bigger than that. When we fully trust the Universe, we know that a situation or an event happens because it’s part of our growth. [...]

DRESS YOUR AGE 1. AVOID BOWS AND RIBBONS Once you crossed your 30s, girly details can sabotage your image. When you wear anything too sweet or too pink, it gives out the impression you haven’t reached maturity and deep inside wish to be a teenager again. You can still wear a ruffled top as long [...]

The decision is to give our back to what we don’t want and focus on what we DO want. Sounds simple, yet we tend to fail in its implementation.

The most affordable way to have a new look is to mix and match the clothes you already own. Grab fashion magazines or visit websites and select images of clothes you would love to wear. Choose a basic item. How many looks can you get with one pair of jeans? Study the picture, get into [...]

What do I mean when I say that successful people have character? This means “Following through on a decision long after the excitement and the emotion of the moment has passed”.

A neat closet is sure to brighten your day and lift your spirit. All you have to do is apply the same organizing principles of a retail store: sort, categorize and group everything by colour. If your closet is small or loaded with stuff, I suggest you grab all its contents and lay on the [...]

Two men are chopping wood in the forest. The first one works 12 hours nonstop. The second man works for 6 hours. At the end of the day, the first man says to the other one “I don’t understand how did you managed to chop twice as much as me; while I worked for 12 [...]

Did you know that we end up wearing only 20% of what we buy? Think about it. You always wear your favourite pieces while everything else sits in your closet. There is no reason for keeping garments just because their style may be back in fashion one day or they were too expensive. Soon you [...]

“Expectations are the basis of guilt and shame and judgment and they provide the essential framework that promotes performance as the basis for identity and value. People try to control behaviour largely through expectations” – from the book “The Shack” Either consciously or unconsciously we put expectation in every relationship and everything we do. If [...]

Have you gained or lost weight? Your body has changed but you insist on keeping clothes from your previous body or the one you will have in the future. Be realistic about your figure and accept your current shape. If you won anything too tight, too short or too big and you see these items [...]

“The only source of knowledge is experience” – Albert Einstein Have you ever reflected on the difference between Pain and Suffer? Pain is part of life. It is a fact and it is not optional.

With the back to school vibe in the air, our senses are attuned to organization and routine. Those whimsical days of summer are a memory and the focus is on getting the job (or jobs!) Done! For many, budgeting and tracking one’s spending is often a line on the to-do list that never seems to [...]

If you are undergoing a rough patch, try not to let the emotions affect you beyond a certain degree. Live it gracefully knowing it is not going to last forever, likewise when you are going through a good phase, it also doesn’t last forever. Good or bad, if you have done it once, you can [...]

Your words have a powerful impact in you and the entire universe. It has been clinically proven that words not only affect your brain activity but your heart activity as well.
