That is your opinion…

and that is perfectly fine with me!

What do you make peace with?

Would you walk a mile in my shoes?

If I told you all about my life, including the good times and the bad times, the public info and the more intimate stories, about my routine, my work, my business aspirations, my struggles, my worries, what brings me happiness and what still frustrates or upsets me, and everything else that makes me who and what I [...]

Before you criticized, if you would just listen…

I am writing this article immediately following my Coaching class. In the past few classes, we have been discussing the importance of Listening and how it affects our relationships (coach/client, husband/wife, parent/child or friendships in general).

Dealing with Criticism – Positive or Negative.

When we are criticized, our first reaction is usually defensive. This is a very normal behavior and may range from mild to very heavy depending on how we accept the person’s judgment. This is true whether Criticism is intended in a positive or a negative way.

Asking questions to set your goals

Many of my readers know me as a big advocate of goal setting. Big or small goals are the starting point to creating a set of milestones, steps and baby steps to march towards the completion of the objective. Moving strategically towards the desired goal offers structure, direction and motivation for me to continue making the [...]

Letting your questions uncover hidden emotions

When you are stalled on your Path, asking open ended questions will help you better identify the symptoms and discover their causes. Some of these may be emotions well hidden for years, preventing you from moving forward. They will require a lot of attention and work beyond the first questions. You deserve the effort you will be putting [...]

How do I know I am asking the right questions?

You don’t, you just have to trust yourself!
Seriously… in your quest for answers and solutions to your challenges, you can start with an open ended question and see where that goes. You don’t need to know if that is the right question. It’s just a start.
Your answers will lead to more questions. That’s where things get [...]
