Business Planning From Your Heart

Connecting Your Heart And Your Soul To Your Business   Everything needs a little nurturing for it to grow and prosper. This may seem like a change in direction for me to be talking about business planning when I usually talk about happiness, love and money. What does business planning have to do with this?  The answer is everything.  If you have your own business your happiness is tied up in your work.  Your work is a big part of creating your life design since you spend a great part of your day and your life focusing on the work

How much negativity are you exposing yourself to?

   A key step to creating the life that you truly desire is to get rid of negativity in your life. You will get what you think of most of the time.  If you constantly worry that you don’t have enough money or that you won’t ever have enough money, you will not have enough money. A clue is to convert your negative talk to positive talk. Dwell on what is positive in your life all the time. This may be difficult at first. There was a time when I could not think of anything positive in my life. I

It is a New Year

We tend to wait until the New Year to make resolutions and take actions that will improve our lives. A few days later we let those carefully thought out resolutions fade away as we get busy in the New Year. It’s ok. The good news is that each day is an opportunity to start a New Year. You don’t have to wait until January 1st next year.  You can start tomorrow or the day after. Pick a day and begin the life design of your New Year. It is difficult to make meaningful changes in our lives. It takes time,

Reader Question: “I am doing everything right but I still don’t make any money”

I often hear this from clients and observe this in people that I know. Do you recognize yourself? "I have every book on Money, how to make Money, and self development that exists. I know that I have limiting beliefs and unconscious patterns that keep repeating. I am constantly doing inner work on myself and reciting affirmations. I quote various authors’ work. I participate in workshops but the information doesn’t seem to stick. I am frustrated and disappointed that nothing seems to work. What am I doing wrong?" Here is the answer, “Nothing”.  If this is you, you are doing all the right things. It is time to take your

A Drop Of Happiness

When you really think about it, everything is medicine. The air we breathe, the activities that we are involved in, the food that we eat, our thoughts, emotions, and friends and family that we surround ourselves with.  The list is endless. Everything that we expose ourselves to becomes a part of who we are. This in turn affects us in so many ways including our health and well being. That sounds great but how do we bring happiness into our lives? For most people this is an impossible task. People don’t have time to be happy. We are involved in

Gemütlichkeit: A Toast To Our Well-Being

Welcome to October. The season is changing in time for a new season to begin. It is a time of wrapping up the summer, raking leaves, bringing plants inside, putting away the outdoor furniture, and getting the indoor furnace ready. Fall is a season for getting ready. The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It is a noticeable change. We begin to spend more time indoors. It is a time for Thanksgiving, Halloween and, of course, Oktoberfest. At this time of year, I always look forward to Oktoberfest. It is a wonderful festival celebrated in many

The Truth about Being Happy

It sounds really simple to be happy. Yet few of us are. Why is that? How do we   turn    that around? I regularly ask people if they are happy and what makes them happy. At first they are stumped. Then they reply "that the question is much harder than they thought" and then, "it is a very hard question" accompanied by a blank and confused look. After thinking a few moments, usually people project into the future. They say, "I will be happy when ….my daughter graduates and gets a job; my kids are happy; I retire; my husband/wife gets a

Where is your Line of Happiness? Imagine Decide Live

On my trip to Taiwan this year, I went to a beautiful place in the centre of  Taiwan called, Sun Moon Lake. To get to Sun Moon Lake we had to take a shuttle from our hotel in Taipei to the subway; take the subway to the high speed train service; take the high speed train to a bus depot in Taichung; take the bus to Sun Moon lake. All of this took three hours. Yes! It was well worth the effort. Sun Moon Lake is truly a magical place. It is the largest lake and exists in
