• 10 Reasons A Niche Is Too Inhibiting

    Do you have a niche? Not really. I do gravitate toward personal development. However, I personally don’t feel like niches are all they’re cracked up to be. Like many labels in life, I find them restricting. Sure, if you’re a surgeon operating on people then maybe a niche is a good thing. I mean who wants a plastic surgeon who does boob jobs most of the time doing their rhinoplasty. Not me! So, yes niches can be important. But, does that mean everyone needs to have a niche? I don’t think so. So, here are 10 reasons why I feel niches are…

  • How To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone The Right Way

      How often do you step out of your comfort zone? If you can’t recall then it’s probably not enough! As someone who is naturally very shy and introverted I often struggle with this one myself. I usually spend a lot of time thinking about stepping out of my comfort zone before I actually do it. For me, the fear can be crippling. Oddly enough, my biggest fear isn’t failure. I’m more scared of what other people will think or say about me for trying it in the first place. Logically, I know that not everyone will like me and the trolls…

That image is quickly replaced by someone complaining about how they can’t do this or that because of some perceived shortfall that they were “born” with. Then there’s the protestors lining up to try and control someone else’s lives because they think that they know better or are superior to the other. But,…

  • 6 Easy Steps To Adopt Your Affirmations

    So, this is going to be a more unconventional post. I was driving up to my husband’s office and on the way I was listening to a YouTube video. The video was “Unleash Your Super Brain To Learn Faster” by Jim Kwik. Basically, he said that there are 6 keys to learning. He used the mnemonic device Be Fast: Believe, exercise, forget, active, state and teach. Now, I’ve always been a big proponent of hands on learning. If I don’t do it myself, I have a harder time really grasping whatever it is. This is super evident every time I have to…

The first issue that arises when you don’t update your vision board is your desires aren’t stagnant. How many of you want…

  • The Law Of Attraction

    My First Introduction To The Law Of Attraction My first introduction to the law of attraction was when I was in college. I was working full time for the federal government and part time at a local piano bar to help make ends meet. Financially, I was struggling. I took out student loans, but that didn’t even cover all of my tuition let alone books. There was literally nothing left over at the end of each month. Actually, it was worse than that because I was racking up credit card debt along the way. Life was stressful to say the least. At…
