Money & Spirituality, and your mission in this revolution of global awakening.

posted in: Articles | 0

My clients sometimes struggle with bridging the worlds of spirituality and business. They have bold and brilliant ideas about saving the planet, but cringe around the idea of making their mission something they can live off. For example, Jade, who’s name I’m sure you’ll hear much of in the future, has the plan to completely change the way we live by “redesigning every facet of modern human life to create a new standard for living that is radically sustainable, accessible, … Read More

Why you should keep a gratitude diary or happiness journal.

posted in: Articles | 14

Every evening, minus a few exceptions, the first thing I do when I get in bed is write in my gratitude journal. I take a couple of minutes to answer questions about my happiness such as ‘what am I grateful for?’, ‘what did I do great today?’, and ‘what amazing things happened today?’.   It’s something that I absolutely love doing, and it has provided me with more benefits that I initially could imagine. I don’t believe in quick fixes … Read More

Why taking small steps is so important.

I recently had a delightful conversation about taking small steps with Megan Karlen, who got me to contemplate her words to the point where I just had to write it down. As we were discussing business strategies and ways to keep oneself sane and zen, she told me of a trip to the mountains she’d recently taken. Encouraged by others to come along, she resistantly climbed the steady slope, cursing the thin air and her protesting muscles. Struggling to keep … Read More

How to get rid of your fear of the future.

posted in: Articles | 11

I have lived a pretty unconventional life so far. I have a tendency to aim for goals that seem way out of reach, making me show up in situations you wouldn’t always expect. I have started many projects and pursued innumerable passions. I have chosen directions and strayed right off those paths. I have traveled when it made more sense to stay home and study, and I’ve spent my hard-earned money where it made more sense to save it up. … Read More

Why unfinished projects are so valuable.

posted in: Articles | 8

It seems as if nowadays everybody can get rich with whatever he or she finds interesting. Most blogs and self-help books claim to show you the roads to great success. They advertise the fastest, easiest ways to achieving your goal. But what is your goal? What if you’re not interested in something long enough to become successful with it? Sometimes my ideas lead to businesses, certifications or other forms of recognized accomplishment. Most of the time, however, they are left unfinished. I lose motivation, drop … Read More
