Although feeling overwhelmed and confused during divorce is normal, remember to avoid the egregious divorce mistakes. It will save you time, money, and your sanity so that you can move on to the next chapter of your life better, not broken or bitter. 1. Not looking at the big picture One of the reasons why divorce feels horrible is because you probably weren’t taught how to plan ahead in divorce. It’s funny, isn’t it? Guidance counselors and academic advisers in school harped on planning and envisioning our future, while financial advisors preach about planning for retirement. But why, during divorce, don’t you apply those same principles? Instead of asking yourself, “What’s the game plan? Where do I want to be in a year with this […]
From a young age we are being taught to be selfless. To consider the feelings of the people around us and put them before our own. Selfless people are likeable, always nice to be around and they just make our lives a little bit easier. But are they happy? Some of them certainly are. I am not saying there is no happiness to be found in helping others. Especially the people that are close to your heart deserve to be treated the best way possible. But there is a limit to how much selflessness is good for you. If you cannot say no and are always thinking about what others have to say, you won’t be successful. Even worse, you won’t be happy. If you […]

Let’s talk about Your success for a moment. The one you have always dreamed of. The image that fills your mind the moment I say the word. Yes, that one! That success that you have been making passes at. That success that you have entertained in surges of motivation. And shelved in moments of apathy. That success that has led you to the glossy covers of magazines. And the promises of self-help books. You won’t find it in those pages. It is not present in those advertisements. But such things do serve an enormous need. They provide a seductive sort of luxury. The luxury of avoidance. The guiltless pleasure of procrastination. A glorious distraction to keep you from doing what you know you must do. […]

There are times when despite our hard work, optimism and good intentions, we fail to make progress on our goals. All of our efforts seem wasted. We lose hope in our abilities. We become demotivated and angry. In this negative state of mind, we persist with less than enough vigor and enthusiasm, our efforts become half-baked and the result we crave continues to elude us. When this happens, it’s easy for us to lose hope and want to give up, telling ourselves, maybe I’m not carved out for this after all. I’ve been there. But for me, giving up wasn’t an option. So I learn to turn thing around and see them from different perspectives. I learn that there are always other aspects we’ve not […]

We’re better to others when we’re at our physical, mental, and emotional best. Ironically, sometimes we’re so busy doing things for others that we forget to take care of ourselves. We may not see the negative effects at first, but before long, we’ll start breaking down like a car that’s skipped a few oil changes. Why This Matters To paint a picture of what can happen if we don’t practice self-care, I’ll share this little confession – it’s about the time when I had an emotional breakdown. I became so unhinged that I had the dog cowering behind the toilet. My Confession I was just leaving work. The weather was perfect but the way I dragged my feet made it seem like every step to […]

New mothers, especially with comfortable financial means have always had the freedom to choose between going back to work and staying at home after the birth of a child. However, in spite of all the progress that has been taking place socially, there are a large number of mothers who believe that choosing work over child rearing would make them bad people. Other findings worth considering – • A recent survey with regards to working mothers exhibited a significant gender gap with regards to attitudes towards this consideration. 45%of women suggested that children are better off if the mother chooses to stay at home. However, 38% said that the kids are equally well off if the mother chooses to go back to work. On the […]

Success which can’t be defined in normal terms. It is a subjective notion. Every individual has his/her own success term from their perspective of life. Though we generalize the term “success” for many material things.
