You Can’t Please Everyone! But You Can Please Yourself!

You can’t please everyone, but you can please yourself. And it’s so true that you can’t please everyone. I was like that. Always trying to make everyone happy. Nothing wrong with the intention. I am still trying to make people happy. But now I place myself first. Before I did not do that. I did not place myself first. I …

Are You A Loser?

Are you a loser? If you don’t succeed, it’s not because you are a loser. It is because you haven’t found who you really are, YET. What do you want to experience in life? How do you want to feel?

You Are Unique. Don’t Try To Become Like Everyone Else!

You are unique. Don’t try to become like everyone else! There was a great female coach who asked on Facebook for her followers to share three things which makes you UNIQUE and DIFFERENT from all others. I hesitated a second.

The Kind Soul of Forest Lawn

Yesterday it was October 12th, 2016 and I had the weirdest day possible. Never experienced that before. I lived two extremes of my life. One extreme was about beauty, peace, communication, hope and love. I received it and it changed my life. The other extreme was hostility, ugliness, greediness. I heard it. The person tried to press it on me. …
