Problems are a natural part of life and a huge component of making life work is knowing how to handle problems.

Here are some ways that people often deal with the problem phenomenon: they avoid risks, don’t rock the boat, they don’t speak their truth, they stay in their comfort zone and do everything to minimize the possibility of problems. Another approach is to over-analyze situations in an attempt to control or pre-empt problems. This usually just creates unnecessary problems more than anything else. Some people respond to problems by blaming other people. Others play the martyr and blame themselves.  

These are not healthy strategies for living. You will be miserable and ineffective, and problems will still find you.

Inspiration is something that you need every day. It is what makes the difference between success and failure, happiness and boredom, clarity and confusion and it gives meaning and purpose to life.

Inspiration takes you out of the realm of the mundane and the ordinary and connects you with your soul. In fact, we could well say that inspiration is our soul talking to us, bringing us the answers we need and showing us the way. It is the response to the questions in our heart. It is what we need for our lives to flow.

Think of a day like this:

You wake up thinking happy thoughts about all the good things in your life.

You hop out of bed eager to begin the day, ready to embrace all the exciting events that are about to unfold. You can’t wait to hug your family “good morning” and then you practically dance your way to the car as you leave for work or school.

Rain or shine, traffic or not, this day is magnificent!

Meetings that could have been challenging or downright horrible zip by with ease. Everyone seems focused on the appropriate outcomes and positivity reigns. You are beaming and everyone you encounter, clients, customers or colleagues feel your energy and are uplifted.


If you are not living your truth you will never be happy or truly successful!

Happiness is the feeling you get when your inner and outer selves match up. And real success flows when you are being and doing what is authentic and organic for you.

So then, what is this “truth” and how the heck do you live it?

Your truth is what you really want to do, the way you truly express yourself. It is your inner power, your magic, your awesome self. Your truth is often the part of you that is repressed so that you can “fit in” to society and make your way in life.

That may seem like a smart choice. After all, you need to get a job and pay the bills, right? 

We all have an area of our life where things are not quite what we’d like them to be.

Maybe there is more than one area where you would like things to change. Perhaps you want to make a lot more money, or move your career forward. You may want to lose weight or improve your health. Or, your family life may not be as loving, peaceful or connected as you'd like it to be. You may be struggling with your relationship or you may be unhappy with your choices or an inability to be true to yourself. Whatever it is, you've probably been struggling with it for a while and cannot seem to make enough progress. 

Are you really ready to do whatever it takes to get the breakthroughs you want?

Every day, every week, every month or year is only as good as you make it.

It may not feel this way, but we have the power to create exactly what we want with our lives, or not. It really is up to us. How? We need to harness our power, focus our minds and hearts, and commit to creating what we want.

In the next few blog posts, I will be laying out the 5 keys to make 2015 the most amazing year you have ever lived. I’m only posting one key at a time because I want you to focus on that particular key and not jump ahead. 


It’s very nearly December 31st and the year is over. I’m sure most of us would say that it was an intense year. Funny how life is requiring more and more of us. We have more to deal with and manage on a daily basis. We are inundated with information and are now accessible 24/7 via our mobiles and social media. Everywhere we look someone is trying to get our attention and we are constantly required to decide: How am I going to spend my time ?




The holidays can be a stressful and demanding time, but they need not be.

Here are some quick tips that will ensure, no matter what your year has been like, that it will come to a wonderful end. 

1. Make the holidays meaningful! Whether you're sharing these days with family or friends, focus on what really matters - people not things. The best gift you can give is to let someone you love know how you really feel. Spend time with the people you care about. Be present, listen and really hear what your loved one is saying. Don't assume you know. Ask and take the conversation deeper. Gifts are lovely but they can't replace your presence and your love.
