My life dream; my ideal life.

The identification of your dream is primary to being able to reach for it. Seems quite logical, doesn’t it? Yet in the hustle and bustle of our lives, we seem to forget this elementary fact and we end up striving for this and that and everything that comes along our path.  It’s easy to get [...]

If you win a million bucks, what do you do?

This is a very important question in finding what you really want from life. Although it involves money, it’s not really about wealth.
The question can be put in a different way: “If you had nothing standing in your way, what would you do?” or why not “If you had a magic wand with unlimited powers, [...]

The ultimate goal; my life dream.

I have been working a lot on taking action lately, thinking of the importance of planning and moving forward in my commitment to achieve goals. Making decisions, trying something new, always striving for the next step allow us to keep learning and growing; we complete our objectives, big or small, to continue fulfilling our lives.  The resulting [...]

To try or not to try…

That is the question… Unless you’re jumping off a cliff without appropriate gear!!  
My answer: See what you will regret by not trying and if that really upsets you, then go ahead and try.
I am talking about trying something new in your life to reach a goal that has been on your mind. TheNewHappyMe was a “try” for [...]

A good read: “Ready, Fire, Aim”

I often talk about Michael Masterson as an author and a speaker who gives no nonsense explanations and examples of what it is to build wealth.  I’ve read many of his books and I highly recommend them. Ready, Fire, Aim is probably his best work, closely followed by The Pledge.
Himself having gone from poverty as [...]

What comes next… the unknown.

The unknown is probably the biggest source of fear and stalling in any project.  But consider this quote by Anthony Robbins,  American self-help author and success coach:
“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”
In other words, stick to what you know, to what you are comfortable with, and you will [...]

When tragedy hits.

April 24th is a day that has deep meaning for me.
It also does for the entire Armenian community across the world, spread and torn by the tragedies of genocide 96 years ago. 
I take a moment today to write about the Armenians who lost their lives, their families, their hopes. As we think of our path, [...]

What if it doesn’t work?

The question “What if it doesn’t work?” brings me to one word: REGRET.
If I am to stall for this question, I must immediately think of the next question: “What can I potentially lose for not trying?” In other words, how much will I regret never finding out if it could have worked?
I think this explanation is [...]

I won’t be able to, it’s too difficult.

When I thought of this excuse to stalling on a project, I started laughing. The image in my mind was of my dog Jorjie who never gives up finding a way to get what he wants.
Jorjie is a male chihuahua. At 2 years old, he is full of energy and although he “listens” to his [...]

I want to but I can’t.

Why can’t you?
Do you have a project you really want to start but you stall with these words?: “I want to but I can’t.”
Is there something about your project that is too difficult? Do you lack knowledge? Do you lack funding? Do you lack time?
“I can’t” is too general. I don’t like the expression. As [...]
