How Your Favorite Activities Can Make You More Successful Than You Dreamed

How Your Favorite Activities Can Make You More Successful Than You Dreamed

When you get started towards new goals and habits there is always a learning curve that comes along with the process. You will naturally tend to shy away from activities that make you uncomfortable and that leave you tired and so we go through the difficulty of forcing ourselves into those activities. We know they are good for us deep down but we want the instant gratification of rewards all the time. Well, what if I told you that both were possible and that your favorite activities and rewards could actually make your new habits easier to attain?

The Best Way to Accomplish Anything in the World

The Best Way to Accomplish Anything in the World

I know, it sounds like a bold statement and you're asking me "what in the world makes you think you know how to accomplish anything?" Well, the simple answer, is I don't. I don't know anything about anything until I start trying everything! No matter how much you read or learn from other people there will always be a great divide between intention and action and that is where we will start.

If You Can Start a Task the Rest is All Downhill

The Most Important Thing You MUST Prioritize to Find Success

The Most Important Thing You MUST Prioritize to Find Success

There are a ton of books and blogs around these days that will explain how important various aspects of your life are for contributing to your success. You will see some that speak of having much less sleep (like 4 hours a night) to ensure success. Others say that you can't have balance in your life and that you need to concentrate on your goals 100% of the time. These tactics might work for some people and would certainly get you to your goals eventually, but at what cost?

How To Make It on the Road Less Traveled

How To Make It on the Road Less Traveled

With some goals firmly in mind, we need to start thinking about how to get you from here to there. This is where some goal planning comes into play. There are any number of ways to go about it but the one thing that you need to do is that you MUST write it down. Writing it down is how you track how far you've come and gives you a visual idea of what you need to do every day in small ways to make big things happen.

Start Becoming the Person You Dreamed You Always Could a Simple Idea

Practice makes Perfect? Who Cares About Perfect. Do This Instead.

Practice makes Perfect? Who Cares About Perfect. Do This Instead.

Perfect is impossible. It is an intangible point we make up to strive towards. Does it seem like an amazing idea? Definitely. But it requires a level of involvement that is impossible for humans. We make mistakes, get tired, and live for more than a single purpose. Perfect is dangerous for us, then, because we can't reach it and end up tired and defeated and let down when we can't get there.

The No. 1 Thing We Are Most Afraid of When We Change Our Lives

The No. 1 Thing We Are Most Afraid of When We Change Our Lives

You might even go through the process of deciding to change and sinking back into old habits multiple times! There is no rule that says you have to be fearless and self assured with every decision you make. Sure, some successful people may appear that way but they're just better acquainted and more comfortable with failure. This brings us to the No. 1 thing we're most afraid of in our lives when it comes to change: Ourselves.

Start Becoming the Person You Always Dreamed You Could

Start Becoming the Person You Always Dreamed You Could

Sometimes all a change needs to become a reality is for someone to start thinking a little differently. With even just a LITTLE more hope, or belief, or ambition, we can set the wheels turning in our heads to start considering the world out there that is waiting for us. Norman Vincent Peale said “Change your thoughts and you change your world” and that is where we would like to start this journey of self-actualization.We aren't asking for huge goals, for big dreams, or for the earth to shift, we are starting today by asking you to consider the question:
“What would I be doing with my day, or with this very moment, if I wanted my life to change?”

Telling Stories Through All The Special Occasions in Our Lives

Telling Stories Through All The Special Occasions in Our Lives

   Stories are kind of our thing. Our stories, random stories and the stories of some of the people who have bought cards - because behind each gift and special occasion is a whole world. Everyone has a story to tell and we've found, since starting to sell cards, that most people just want to share that story. Weddings, Birthdays, Husbands, Wives, Trips and Tragedy - there is always something extraordinary going on in all of our lives but until we stop to think about it and relay it, it may just pass us by.

A Calm Choice of Music for a Sunny Afternoon

A Calm Choice of Music for a Sunny Afternoon

Sitting in the living room this afternoon, where our display for the One of a Kind Show is now set up and taking up our house, I've decided to put some music on and enjoy the sunshine coming through the window. My brother brought home his record player and all his records this past month and he has one of my favourite albums - hence the lovely listening.

How to Add a Personal Touch to Your Spring Wedding

How to Add a Personal Touch to Your Spring Wedding

There are always those people as part of your wedding party that you just couldn't pull the special day off without. Bridesmaids, special friends, mothers, fathers, and, of course, the Maid of Honour (the MOH). In all the hustle and bustle of the big event, it is easy to get swept away and not stop and really appreciate how important these special people are and how much they mean to you in moving forward with your new life.
