Why Forgive?

Forgiveness frees you ~ mind, body and soul ~ so you can enjoy your life again.  When you hold grudges or keep telling the story of how someone hurt you, betrayed you or broke your heart, you store that poison and toxicity all over your body. It is only hurting you, so releasing anger and bitterness, allows you to move forward and live a fulfilling life. I have taught myself how to release negativity. It… Read More »Why Forgive?

How Much Beauty Are You Missing?

I’m embarrassed to tell you that there was a time when I was so miserable and  depressed, that I didn’t see any beauty in the world. I thought there was nothing special about the place where I live. Now I am always taking pictures and making videos outside because I am in awe of the beauty around me. I didn’t move. I just changed my mindset. I taught myself to be grateful and positive. That… Read More »How Much Beauty Are You Missing?

You Can’t Rush Greatness

It’s hard to live in a world where so much is instantly available at our fingertips, yet love, personal growth, and our dreams can’t be rushed. It requires patience and persistence to pursue our dreams. It calls for a deep belief that we are worthy and capable of having whatever our hearts’ desire.  We need time to dream and let our dreams linger, so we can feel the delight and pleasure in our very souls. … Read More »You Can’t Rush Greatness

You are creating your life’s circumstances all the time. If you are actively pursuing your goals, you are creating your dreams. If you are scared or hesitant to pursue your goals, that is the block or resistance that you need to overcome. As a coach, please seek my advice all the time, “Help me get over my money blocks.

Believe in Your Dreams

Dr. Wayne Dyer’s inspirational words have always shaped my life and continue to do so. He reminds us to always believe in ourselves, and to have an inner knowing that whatever we want to achieve is within our reach. Never give up!

The Secret To Successful New Year’s Resolutions

I love New Year’s Resolutions.  I am inspired by the feeling of renewal and another chance to succeed with my goals and aspirations. But this year will be different because I understand that some bad habits aren’t broken overnight. I may not get instant gratification on January 1st.  It’s all in the resolve that I build to not break commitments to myself – but even this will take time. The secret is to renew your… Read More »The Secret To Successful New Year’s Resolutions

Pave the Way to Success

I recently had dinner with my fabulous friend Tracey Severns and as always, it was a night to remember. I didn’t dare ask her, “What are you going to do now that you are retired?” because if you know Tracey, she is just getting revved up! Her “retirement” is packed with speaking engagements, invitations to be a guest lecturer and keynote speaker at numerous conferences, and she is a regular contributor to DisruptED TV. She’s… Read More »Pave the Way to Success

I’m Presenting Wednesday Night in East Rutherford, NJ

My presentation, Managing Toxic People, is wildly successful.  Difficult people are everywhere in our lives: family members, coworkers, friends and people in our communities, just to name a few.  I teach strategies that help us manage challenging situations with grace and dignity.  One of my favorites is to remain in a state of neutral while dealing with someone difficult. Another favorite strategy is to pause before responding or reacting to a situation, which aids us… Read More »I’m Presenting Wednesday Night in East Rutherford, NJ
