How To Attract Success: Do Work You Love, Discover Your Natural Gifts and Talents

Some people seem to be born knowing what their natural gifts and talents are, and they know exactly what they want to do in life. I was a bit jealous of these people because I was born with a strong sense of purpose, feeling that there was something important I was supposed to do, but no clue as to what that might be. I was pretty good at a lot of different things but not so extraordinarily good at any one thing. It just wasn't obvious what I was supposed to do. No one attracts success more than someone who is doing what he or she loves to do. When you are doing what you love, your eyes sparkle, you are happy and excited about life, you are full of energy and joy. You feel satisfied, content, turned on. Given all this, why don't we do what we love? It is perverse how much time we spend doing what we don't love to do. The latest research indicates that 50 percent of the western world is in the wrong job. Given the amount of complaining I hear at parties, this seems to be a fairly accurate... Read More →

Invent Five New Careers


If you have found yourself saying “I hate my job,” or if you feel you are stuck in a career rut, then it may be time to think outside of the box. Pretend that your current job has been eliminated from the face of the earth, and you now have to do something completely different. What might you like to do? Pick any five new careers that you fancy. Don't worry if you don't have the training or education. Write a paragraph about why you'd want this career. Then go on to the next career. Why would you want this one? This will also help you figure out what you really value and may point you in the right direction to a possible new career. One client, Jenny, a hardworking forty-five-year-old human resources executive, did this career change exercise and came up with a rather unexpected result. She was surprised when she realized that she'd like to look after other people's gardens. Somehow it just didn't fit with her idea of the executive life she had. Her five new careers revealed a... Read More →

Clear Clutter with the Joy filter

“Unbelievable as it may sound, you only have to experience a state of order once to be able to maintain it.” —Marie Kondo, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Would you like something new and wonderful to come into your life? A new job, a new friend, an opportunity? A relationship? One of the easiest, most effective ways to attract something new into your life is to create some space. If you feel stuck, start clearing the decks. Go through your files at the office and toss out all those old memos, reports, and articles you’ve been saving in case you need them someday. The easiest way to get ruthless is to imagine that you are being promoted and are relocating to another office. I was amazed by one of the sales managers at the bank. She was given a job managing a different team of people, and when she cleaned out her desk, all she had to take with her was one small manila folder. I asked how she managed that, and she said the new department would have all the information she... Read More →

Banish Clutter Forever! One Simple Secret is all You'll Ever Need

On rare occasion I bump into a book that is truly life-changing. And, in most cases, once presented with a truth, it is so incredibly simple and obvious you wonder why we didn't always do it this way all along – like putting wheels on hand luggage. The book is Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying: A Simple, Effective Way to Banish Clutter Forever. Amazingly enough, it does just what it says on the tin. I've tested it on my own wardrobe and cleared out my clothes in two hours and then eliminated ten big bags in one hour at a friend's house. One of my life coaching clients used this method to eliminate more than 100 books in less than an hour. Another client cleared out 30 work shirts in 15 minutes. It is fast, effective and fun! After years of experimenting with various means of getting rid of clutter, I can confirm this is the simplest, most effective and permanent solution. There is only one question to ask when evaluating whether to keep or discard any object. You must... Read More →

Lack of Motivation--Get Inspired with One Quick Tip

Following on from last week where I talked about a vision pulling you forward I wanted to share this amazing story that I was sent by one of our readers. If you haven't already, why not follow your passion and start creating your own new reality? It can be as simple as drawing a picture, or writing it down, you could cut and paste your dreams using your computer or start a vison board. Again, just think about what you would love to have happen and write it down. If you missed last week's tip you can read it here.  Talane, When I was a Senior in high school, I drew a quick picture of a guy I would like to meet. Three years later he walked into my life and we were together for two years. A year later, in a class I was taking, I was asked to draw a picture of what I'd like my life to be like in five years. My picture was of a husband and three children - two young girls and a baby boy, waving out the window, and me, with a camera slung over my shoulder, running out the door to a... Read More →

How to get Motivated--Create a Fulfilling Vision for Your Life that Pulls You Forward

Last week I promised you I'd show you how to create your own reality. The secret to being naturally motivated is to create a fulfilling vision for your life that pulls you forward, then you don't need willpower or discipline because you eagerly look forward to achieving this ideal life.                 Now both my personal coaching clients and executive coaching clients usually freak out when they hear the 'vision' word. How do you create a vision? Don't panic. This isn't hard at all. A vision should come to you naturally and it doesn't have to be grandiose to be effective. In fact, you can have lots of visions and they can be personal or business-oriented. The point of having a vision is to inspire you to think really big and to give you a visual image in your mind to focus on. Let's look at some big, inspiring visions: Bill Gate's vision for Microsoft is to have a computer on every desk running Microsoft software. JFK had a vision to land a... Read More →

Break the Cycle of Negative Thinking: Why Affirmations don't Work and What to do About It

I received an email from a librarian who noticed I talked about the law of attraction years ago in Coach Yourself to Success. She asked that I write one of my weekly tips about it and recommend additional resources and books. Let's start with the first law of attraction -- like attracts like. If you have a negative thought you will end up attracting negative things, which is why it is so important to eliminate negative thoughts, as you end up attracting what you don't want as opposed to what you do want. This is the problem with positive affirmations -- they work as long as you don't have a sub-conversation going on at another level. For example, if you say, "I'm increasingly magnetic to money. I have all the wealth I could ever want" and then what you are really thinking is, "Yeah, right, I'll never get out of all this credit card debt," which thought carries more weight? The negative one, because your experience of it is true. How do you break the cycle of negative thinking? You... Read More →

Make your birthday memorable

“Our birthday is our chance to be a king or a queen for a day, a day when we don’t wash the dishes or clear the table, a day when we can order any food we like! They should be big, special days for us,” says Talane, as featured in a fun article on birthdays in Friday magazine. Read the full article.  Read More →
