It’s not WHAT you want, it’s how BAD you want it!

Every decision is a balancing act:  Effort vs Reward.

Making the decision to change, to go down a difficult path, means your reasons to succeed have outweighed your excuses to fail.  I’m still struggling with this myself, but every step in the right direction makes my resolve stronger for the next time.

Decision Choose Change or Same Old Street

I’ve read several books and articles about highly successful people and there’s one overwhelmingly common element:  they WON’T give up, and they refuse to listen to even one million “No’s,” or one million voices saying “you’ll never succeed,” all they know is ‘try again’.

We can only be responsible for our own paths, our own results, our own successes or failures.  In the end, reaching your goal will be that much more meaningful because it wasn’t easy.  The day I literally made it to the top of this mountain, healthy enough to return to snow skiing at 53 years old, was the day I quit listening to my own voice that said “you’re too old and overweight to get back in shape.”  Now all I hear is “what’s next?!”

Of course we should do our best to be healthy, and I’m all for optimizing our best physical features, preferably using an all-natural approach.  But whatever changes you’re going for, be sure it’s for YOU– this is again one of the first necessary components to developing and projecting confidence, our sexiest characteristic!

The Woman I Want to Be

We are all works in progress…. how we turn out depends on who’s holding the brush

The Happy Woman Project

I struggled to feel who I really am, all my life, because people tell me who they wanted me to be all my life. Obedient, virtuous, smart, hardworking, neat, as a kid; later on I was expected to be gracious, independent, demure and even submissive, not to my husband, but to all elders and figures of authority. I did as I was told most of my life, until I failed, then I was blamed, miserably, and I saw then, nobody really cared if you had been an angel before you fell.

I struggled to be obedient, when I saw that I had to bend the rules in order to be happy. I struggled to be respectful to elders, when they were mocking me; I struggled to be the submissive employee when my superiors usurped the credit I deserved. I even struggled to find my place in society, in religion, and…
