Life is too precious to be lived in mediocrity.

Mediocrity

Do you ever feel like your life is stuck in a rut? Are you bored with your every-day routine? From the moment we wake up, brush our teeth, eat breakfast, head off to work, and come back home…everything just sort of happens. Mediocrity creeps up on us before we know it. Nobody strives for a mediocre life but most of us are not willing to put the “sweat equity” it takes to stop living life by default. Are you doing what you want or what you should? mediocrity (definition) Being average and ordinary. “Jane wouldn’t settle for mediocrity; she worked …

The Invitation by Oriah

The_Invitation

 The Invitation by Oriah It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love for your dream for the adventure of being alive. It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon… I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shrivelled …

Where there is a will, there is a way, where there is no will there is an excuse!

Excuses

What Excuses Do You Have To Stop Using Right Now? Lately I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed with the amount of projects and things I need to accomplish. These are the times that I have to stop… take a deep breath, and stop making excuses. Making excuses rather than finding solutions, blaming external elements for my own situation or blaming other people for my problems is NOT going to get the job done! When thinking of excuses, there are a few of them that are very common for most people. I don’t know enough. I don’t have time. It …

Women are terrible at accepting compliments!

Compliment

Okay so I hope you enjoyed this hilarious (if somewhat scandalous!) video from Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer. Women are terrible at accepting compliments! What I love about this woman’s comedy, and why I wanted to post this video, is that it pokes fun at serious issues, particularly issues of concern to women and how they relate to men and to each other. The writing is hilarious and exaggerated, but it hints at something real that many people do – they put themselves down. Whether because it seems like the socially appropriate thing to do, or because it’s a habit …

Wantrepreneur or Entrepreneur… Which Are You?

wantrepreneur

Wantrepreneur or Entrepreneur? I started working on a new business project with my best friend Paul, and we decided to enroll in classes that would help us create a blueprint for success. In our first lesson, I came across a new term “Wantrepreneur” – individuals who have the desire to be an entrepreneur, but have not yet attained that status. Sometimes referred to as “wannabe entrepreneurs” It’s been over 20 years since I have held a “regular JOB”; at this point, I’m pretty much unemployable! I love the fact that I make my own hours – wake up when I’m …

Stop Doing that thing… (inspiration)

What do you have to stop doing in order to start doing something GREAT? Don’t answer quickly, as this will reflect superficial thinking. Be honest, and do the hard work by facing yourself.

The world needs to be exposed to your gifts, your talents, and your genius. Don’t allow yourself to be handcuffed by fear. A better life, peace of mind, financial success, better relationships, in essence – virtually all the …

Why is it so hard to love what is? The Power of Now

Eckhart Tolle is one of my favorite writers and thinkers alive today. The principles of his book – The Power of Now – can change your life forever. I came across this quote and couldn’t help but wonder, Why is it so hard to love what is? Why do we spend so much time being uncomfortable with our present situation and struggling against it? Ultimately, in order to be happy we must be both present in the moment and at peace with our current reality. That does not mean to resign yourself and do nothing to change what’s happening in …
