Work has the power to change lives.

Whether you own it or it owns you, whether you describe it or it describes you tips the scale and decides whether it creates or destroys. And whether we work hard, work smart, or work our charm, it is the thing that turns the ‘well said’ into ‘well done’.

It can be exhausting, monotonous, challenging, exciting, or draining. But those who enjoy work, know that it’s more about tuning in to the reason behind whatever we are doing than about simply showing up for what we are supposed to do.

Like the phoenix we shall rise.

Death may sound like the end, but it can also be the beginning of so many things — of realizing who you didn’t even know you were, and also of daring new ways of thinking, seeing, being, and doing.

It brings us together and it shreds us apart. The equations from before are shaken and new patterns emerge. That’s how life usually is, how it is meant to be. …


Stepping back into being your own person, someone more than a bundle of duties, responsibilities, and should-dos, can sometimes feel as disconcerting as going back to a cherished childhood place and wondering was the doorway always this low?

Ticking all the checkboxes of having a job, getting married, a family — all the usual yardsticks of a life moving in the right direction, I somehow left the girl behind who wanted to do things differently, who knew her mind and what she wanted from life.

It takes a lot to jerk one out of the kind of rut created by…


What has self-love got to do with success? Apparently, everything. Because success really is all about you. It’s about how our achievements, outcomes, results make us feel… a swirl of joy, pride, excitement, and satisfaction.

Sure, sometimes achieving or achieving ‘more’ than what someone else has accomplished makes us feel successful. Even though it doesn’t feel as fulfilling, still it’s about how it brings some kind of pride.

And even when genuine success means being able to do good and help others, still it’s about satisfaction — the satisfaction of having been able to make our little contribution to the…


“If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.”
— Ken Robinson

Do successful people have super powers? The answer is, yes, they do — it’s called the right attitude. How anyone reacts to the challenges cropping up in life decides how the curve of life fulfilment looks for them.

Our mind is one of the most powerful tools we have to bring us everything needed to create satisfying life experiences. …


“You have power over your mind ―not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”

— Marcus Aurelius

Imagine how it would feel to face something you always dreaded and still be confident you are going to come out of it just fine.

It will be easier for you to handle tough situations if you’re motivated to take action rather…

“ What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”

- Zig Ziglar

“Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”

— Louise L. Hay

Everyone knows, every person we meet won’t be gracious or kind.

But then,

  • why do we get hurt when someone is rude or mean as that’s always a possibility?
  • why do we beat ourselves up with someone’s action or reaction that we take to be personal?

It’s either that the situation is complicated or because we are too sensitive and dislike any kind…

“The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.” — Buddha

Have you ever said to yourself, “I know I can absolutely do that, only if…”?
