Are You Feeling Overwhelmed?
Are you ready to stop feeling overwhelmed, find balance, and give room to more happiness in your life? Today is a great day to start developing some new tools!
We are currently living in an era that highlights the importance of all areas in our lives. Career and paychecks are still important focuses, but today we are also increasingly encouraged to follow our inner passion.

Talking To Your Mate About Money
By Marcia Naomi Berger
How Money Views are Formed and Expressed
Money can be a sensitive topic in dating and marriage. Often cited as a cause of divorce, a conflict about money is usually a symptom of something else. Often the real issue is a lack of constructive communication by partners about what’s important to each of them.
Depending on who you are, talking about money with a partner may be taboo, acceptable, or somewhere in between. In many cultures and families, it is not okay to talk about money. In others, it’s fine to speak openly about it. Regardless of which category you fit into, understanding the source of your attitude can help you address money related concerns more successfully.
Everything Begins With The Mind
By Bob Mangroo
Face It: Mind and Actions Must be Aligned
When we face difficult times and compare our life to others it is very easy to think that life favors one person over another. But the differences in people’s lives are not conditions of the outside world. What makes the difference is the condition of the inside world.
People accomplish their desires because they have tapped into the power of their own thoughts. No amount of effort will work in our favor if our mind is working against us. Our mind and actions must be aligned for that which we desire. It is impossible for success to be created with failure thinking. And, it is impossible to be happy with misery thinking.
What Does It Mean To Be Empowered?
By Marcia Sirota Md
It is Time to Discover Your “Inner Warrior”
I think about what it means to be empowered, and what it would be like to feel strong, confident, brave and free. In today’s society, where we’re lucky enough not to have to fight for our territory, property or survival, being empowered has a very different connotation than it did in past times.
The way I see it, being empowered today means feeling like you have a strong warrior at your core. You could see this “Inner Warrior” as an aspect of the self that embodies all your strength and courage; the part of your personality that protects you from harm and defends you from attacks, either from the negativity of the “Inner Critic,” or from the hurtful behavior of people around you.
10 Tips For Bouncing Back From Adversity
By Marcia Sirota Md
Do You Seek to Be More Resilient?
Life can be beautiful, but occasionally it can also kick us in the teeth. We can experience loss, disappointment, adversity.
Eventually, everyone has to face their fair share of pain. What makes the difference between someone who barely survives these challenges in life, and someone who meets these challenges head-on and thrives? It’s the presence of resilience.
The Secret To Confident Risk Taking
By Regina Chouza
Risk with Confidence for Success
We can learn about risk taking from this story. In the mid-nineties, a junior soccer team won every championship in the county for three straight years. It was not that the girls were the most talented or surefooted players. Their dexterity was no better than the average thirteen year old.
Rather, their coach insisted they take every opportunity to shoot on the goal. Seven failed attempts and two goals were better than two failed attempts and no scores, he told them time and again.

The Problem With Seeing Only What We Want To See
By Marcia Sirota Md
Do You Notice Warning Signs, or What Only You Wish to See?
I’ve been thinking about how it’s human nature to see what we want to see and ignore anything that goes against our expectations of how things ought to be, or how we want things to be. We’ll miss something that’s staring us right in the face if we don’t want to see it.
In my office, my patients always come in and walk toward the chair they’re going to sit in, and then they turn around to face me.
