3 Steps to Change Your Life

By | Wednesday, 8 June, 2016|Categories: Change, Growth, Happiness|Tags: , , |

In February 2010, I had just moved into a tiny apartment in small-town Pardubice, in the Czech Republic. The only friend I had at the time came over, and we celebrated my move by opening a bottle of wine. We didn’t finish the bottle so I kept it on the kitchen counter. I went through a difficult period of adjusting. [...]

Your decision is the ultimate test of how committed you are to your intentions and how invested you are in what you say you want. — Christine Kane I had taken a short break from blogging after that stirring Friday incident in Prague which I blogged about in my last post. I felt that I needed to get [...]

How To Let Go of Fear

Wow. What can I say? The beginning of the week saw me disheartened and disappointed in this land I have come to love and now call home. And I cried. I cried for injustice being dealt by a few ignorant people in power. I cried for ignorance still prevalent today in an era where information is accessible just [...]

Why Most People Never Reach Their Dreams

By | Thursday, 24 April, 2014|Categories: Business, Mindsets & Beliefs, Personal Branding|Tags: , |

After living in a 4-season climate for 5 years, I have become accustomed to what they call an April weather.

The day started off rather warm when I went out to do some errands. Come noon, the temperature dropped, the skies darkened, and the rain started pouring.

Don’t you just wanna sleep when that happens? Alas, I gotta write.

So, in light of the dreamy atmosphere, I choose today to wax lyrical about just that.

Dreams.

In reality, “dreams” is just a romanticised word for “aspirations”.

All of us have dreams. We all aspire to do something great.

But where within us do aspirations come from? And why do some people seem to just reach their dreams, while others don’t?

There is No Failure… How To Turn Every Failure Into Triumph

By | Wednesday, 16 April, 2014|Categories: Business, Mindsets & Beliefs, Productivity|Tags: , , , , |

I have been working with my private client and good friend Emily for about a year.

Last evening I was out to dinner with her and listened as she excitedly told me about a new job offer from a prestigious employer, a move to the capital city, and all the prospects that the new beginning will bring.

I got to know Emily at a time when she was going through a failing situation. Emily has since evolved to become a stronger, more independent person – a transformation I have found joy in witnessing.

Later that night, I began to contemplate on this concept we call failure. You and I have most certainly known what it’s like to fail.

At the best, a small failure is but an annoyance. At the worst, a big failure can be excruciating and can make you feel like the world has ended.

A significant relationship that ended in separation. A major business venture that fell and left you deep in dept. Or an important competition you didn’t win.

Well, the world didn’t end, and you realise that you are still alive. You have to go on, somehow.

So, how do you dust off the bruised ego and shame you felt of having failed, and go on? More importantly, how do you take what’s been given to you – a failure – and use it to fuel your success?

My mind began to wander to a phenomenon governed by the laws of physics.

5 Lessons the Bee Can Teach You About Business

By | Thursday, 10 April, 2014|Categories: Business, Productivity|Tags: , , |

Last weekend, I saw a talk that led me to contemplate on the bee.

Bees hold reverence in my culture. Being the only insect that gives us wholesome food with tremendous healing properties, its significance has been mentioned in various sacred texts, endearing it to many across different religions and cultures.

As an on-purpose entrepreneur, surely we can’t discount the importance of learning from the producers of a product so revered to by the world. If you studied enough about bees, you can learn a great deal from them and how you can apply that in the way you do business.
