Do you find yourself frantic a lot these days?

It’s not your external reality that causes franticness; the cause is your ‘Mind Stories’ . . . your interpretation.

The villain isn’t the external situation on the screen of your mind — it’s your projector. In other words, the current external reality is not the root of your issues . . . your subconscious stories are running the show. Mind Stories tell you what role you play in the story of your life, what plot you are playing out, what intentions you need to follow.

Everyone has a different Mind Story…


3 Common Mistakes to Avoid to Shift from the Old World to the New One

Once every so often, an unprecedented event causes a great reset in the world, like this pandemic. We now face increasingly unpredictable and uncharted territories.

Like all changes, the “great reset” causes angst among most people.

Feeling stressed and overwhelmed

If you find yourself stressed because of present life situations, or are dealing with people who find it stressful, realize that it’s normal. Process the negative thoughts and emotions. Move them out of your body…


How to achieve impossible goals

How to Achieve Any Goal You Want

Often people don’t achieve a goal because they have an underlying doubt about themselves and their ability to achieve it. In this article we’ll explore how to cultivate an unwavering belief so you can start progressing towards your goals with power and clarity.

Indecision leads to fatigue. It creates anxiety and agitation by looping forth and back between options. Yet, many people these days feel stuck in indecision because of the uncertainty in the world. If that’s you, this one is for you.

Some people believe that life wants them to fail. They look around and see losses and failures mostly. It can seem like life is against them, especially during periods of tectonic social-economic shifts like what’s happening now.

On the other hand, times like this can help you grow in more potent ways than when times are easy. If you look back on challenging times in your past, often you grew far stronger, wiser and more resilient. If it was easy all the time, you would likely stagnate. But life doesn’t usually give you a challenge you aren’t ready for. It…

Daily habits reveal a lot about your overall personality and success in life. While some habits enhance your life and improve well-being, others drain you completely.

Fortunately, examining and shifting your energy-draining habits to energizing ones can profoundly improve your life.

Most people struggle to change their habits. A new habit requires time, effort and consistency. According to neuroscience studies, it takes anywhere between 21 to 66 days of consistent focus to form a new habit.
