I had self imposed limiting beliefs about

I suggested that he could review his financial commitments, give up his ‘wants’ and keep only those things that are really necessary. He said it is difficult to let go of his possessions.

You Were Born With Greatness

I spent significant years of my life living out on other people’s dreams. It was not intentional, rather it was a habit that was cultivated since I was young.

The other was a very successful businessman who was respected in society and had a wonderful family. Some people wanted to find out why two brothers from the same parents, bought up in the same environment, could be so different. The first one was asked, “How come you do what you do?” You are a drug addict,

One question to reduce the feeling of being overwhelmed.

I especially love the quote by Confucius : “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Every accomplishment, significant or small, has a first step. For some, that first step can be the most difficult one to take. The tasks ahead can seem too steep to climb uphill. The dream goal seems too far from reach.
