The Pain of Success

Post Image

  Believe it or not, pain can be the best thing to ever happen to you, especially on your climb to success. Pain and struggles force you to view yourself differently. It exposes your flaws…things about yourself that you might not like. Acknowledge that there are weaknesses, no matter how painful it may be, and […]

Learning to Let Go of Expectations

Post Image

The one thing that destroys relationships and rips friendships apart more than any other is expectations. Saying that others are not meeting our “needs” usually means that they are not living up to our expectations of them. We then try to seek out the reasons they are not meeting our expectations and project our often false perceptions on them […]

Being Honest with Yourself

Post Image

One of my favorites quotes is “Integrity is telling myself the truth and honesty is telling the truth to others.”…Spencer Johnson This may sound very confusing, but for some there is very little that they hate more than being honest, especially when it comes to telling the truth about themselves.

Embracing Your Personal Power

 “You’ve got the power in your hand. You’ve got the power to make me understand,” are some of the lyrics to one of my favorite James Brown songs. A song I used to be caught singing to the top of my lungs when I was younger. Back then, the lyrics really meant nothing to me; just words […]

Are You Bitter or Better? – Knowing the Difference

Some say they are better off after the breakup of a relationship, losing a job, not getting a role for which they auditioned, or the downfall of their business. They say that they have overcome it and the situation is no longer an issue. However, when they are revengeful, full of rage, and they continuously make it a topic […]

Bouncing Back from Divorce – The Power to Heal Your Heart

Post Image

Although each of us have the power to heal our own hearts, we still need to reach out to others to help us through the process. Just like a dentist may know how to extract a tooth, he needs to call on another dentist if one of his own needs extracting. My biggest mistake while […]
