We are now less than one month away from the new year and it is time to review what you have achieved in 2018 no matter how big or small.

The YES! TO Love Book - The Story

In this blog article I share with you the story behind the creation of the #1 bestseller YES! TO Love™: The Ultimate Guide to Personal Transformation for Everyday Life Balance.

The beginnings

I wrote YES! TO Love™ in 2015 and it was first published in 2016. However, my writing journey dates back to 2010. I knew there was a book in me. I attended my first writing workshop back then and my intention was to write a book one day... It was therefore something I foresaw in the distant future. Little did I know that I would start writing earlier than I anticipated…

The miracle

The working title of the first book I wrote, back in 2010, was Happiness Creation (still to be released :))

A miracle happened that year: I first put pen to paper whilst reading Susan Jeffers’ book Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway. Her book had a life changing and miraculous effect on me. Susan’s book content was so profound that it got me inspired: I started to make notes of inspiration...

Celebrating The 50th Episode of The Everyday Life Balance Show

Dear friend,

I want to thank-you personally for celebrating with me the 50th episode of The Everyday Life Balance Show.

When I embarked on this journey to start a podcast back in June 2017, I knew it would be fun! I have enjoyed this journey very much and it continues...

Do you have a project you have not launched yet?

In this blog article I share with you 5 things I have learnt since launching The Everyday Life Balance Show on the 1st of June 2017:

1. Practice makes perfect: recording the episodes took a long time at first, however the more I did it the more confident I became. The most important thing is to start even if it means taking imperfect actions.

What is Success Series? (Part 3)

In the “What is Success Series?” I shared with you:

  • In part 1: that in order to achieve success, you must choose your goal wisely
  • In part 2: your worthy ideal contributes to the success of your soul

In this blog article, part 3 of the “What is Success Series?”, I am going to share with you how you can enjoy the process as you move towards the accomplishment of your goals.

When you want to achieve success in your life it is easy to get carried away and to 'lose your soul' in the process on the one hand. On the other hand, when you enjoy the process you understand that you put a lot of energy into the accomplishment of your goal for the purpose of personal growth.

I chose Earl Nightingale’s definition of success: “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal” because it is the closest definition of success led by the heart as opposed to the head. Indeed, it the closest definition of success which defines success as...

What Is Success Series? (Part 2)

In the first article in the series on What Is Success? I shared with you my preferred definition and I took you through a thinking process with regard to choosing your goal wisely.

In this article I am going to share with you what your worthy ideal ought to be for inner happiness, inner peace and inner joy.

Earl Nightingale said: “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal”

1. What is your worthy ideal?

In my opinion your worthy ideal is one, which will contribute to the success of your soul. The success of your soul is threefold and it consists of:

  • Healing your soul’s tendencies
  • Fulfilling your calling or vocation
  • Saying YES! to love.

2. Healing your soul’s tendencies

When you choose to heal your soul’s tendencies you agree to become the best that you can be and authentic to your true self. Your true self is the higher part of you which is seeking expression as joy, love, peace, harmony and happiness. Your worthy ideal in this case is...

What Is Success Series? (Part 1)

We all have different definitions of success, however in this blog article I want to share with you my preferred definition and why it matters. I take you through a thinking process, which will help you choose your goal wisely...

My preferred definition of success comes from Earl Nightingale, who said: “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.” In his definition of success Earl Nightingale teaches us that a worthy goal is necessary in order to achieve success, therefore it is important that you choose your goal wisely!

1. Why should your goal be worthy of you?

Your goal must be worthy of you because of the amount of time and energy you will put into its accomplishment. When you study people who have achieved great success, in terms of making a difference in the world, you will find that they did not achieve success in a straight line; indeed, they had to go through many roadblocks in order to reach the mountain top. Therefore, your goal must really be...

The Magic Of Self-Awareness...

When you want to live a life of love self-awareness is your ability to increasingly get to know yourself. By that I mean becoming aware of what you really want as well as your thinking, feelings, behaviour, beliefs and actions.

The magic of self-awareness is that it is part of life’s mystery and mastery. In this blog article I share with you 6 reasons why growing in self-awareness is so important.

1.     When you embark on a journey of self-discovery, increasing self-awareness transforms your life forever and creates greater happiness from the inside out.

2.     You become aware that you have all of the answers that you seek within you. However, in order to find the answers that you seek you must be aware of who you are: a soul living in a physical body having a human experience.

3.     I believe that human beings exist for the purpose of growth therefore without self-awareness there is no growth and the possibility...

Why You Must Take 100% Responsibility For Your Life and Results

When you want to transform your life, your starting point is to agree that you will always take 100% responsibility for your life and results. Therefore, you choose not to fall victim of your circumstances and to take full control over your life instead.

Sometimes you expect others to rescue you from your challenges. However, you do not get the help that you need until YOU decide to find solutions to your problems or to take 100% responsibility for your actions and results.

You are more equipped to take 100% responsibility for your life and results when you are able to respond to your life's challenges from a place of awareness; the awareness that this particular challenge is part of your workbook of life and a lesson to be learnt for your own personal and spiritual growth. This requires you to take a moment to reflect on what is seeking to contribute to your own growth in your particular circumstances.

There are two books by Wayne Dyer that changed my life:
