Napoleon had once believed that it was essential that he owned a big house andContinue reading “To achieve true success and abundance, is your mind in the best optimal state ?”

hold on tightly to your dreams – they are your dreams for a reason

When I first read Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, the world was infinitely quieter. There was no social media and not everyone had access to or could bear staying “on” line long because of the speed.

Things to do vs. What I’ve done

I had an a-ha moment this morning. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been feeling really tired but this morning I realized that most of it was not physical fatigue but mental. Now I am a note taker – constantly jotting – writing things down, yet I still felt the burden of all myContinue reading “Things to do vs. What I’ve done”
