Get better !

28 Jul

You must invest three percent of your income in your self-development in order to guarantee your future.

(Brian Tracy)

I know you really want to take that class or that seminar or that spiritual

growth retreat, but you think you can’t afford it. The truth may be that you can’t afford not to.

Eine Schule für´s Leben !

25 Jul

Ich freue mich sehr auf unseren morgigen Event zugunsten der School for Life !

Wer hätte das gedacht- es war erst letzten Dezember als ich nach Thailand flog, um mir vor Ort ein Bid von der Schule zu machen. Kurz zuvor hatte mich Prof. Jürgen Zimmer, der Initiator der School for Life, gefragt, ob ich mir vorstellen könne, als Botschafterin tätig zu werden. Da ich nur Dinge tue, von denen ich voll überzeugt bin, machte ich mich kurzerhand auf den Weg nach Chiang Mai, verbrachte einen Monat mit 122 Waisenkindern und war schon in der ersten Woche überzeugt, mich für dieses Projekt einsetzen zu wollen.

(HIER gibt es im Dezember 2010 Archiv ein paar Berichte aus meinem Reise-Blog! )

Jetzt steht das erste Fundraising Event bevor, das ich mithilfe von Michael Kaufman und seiner Agentur independent concepts (Vielen Dank Micha!) organisiert habe:

Are you losing your friends?

25 Jul

An interesting article from Hollywood acting coach Bernad Hiller:

Things That Make You Lose Connection:

Being able to connect in life is crucial. You will never be able to achieve anything great without help. These personality traits listed below will cause you to fail in pursuit of your dreams.

1. Superficial – Being false and not truthful. Living behind a mask. Having no depth and not wanting people to know the real you.

2. Selfishness – Not interested in other people’s feelings and only thinking how a situation could serve you.

3. Controlling – Trying to control relationships and people’s opinions and actions. Blaming others and never taking responsibility for any of your behavior.

4. Resistance – Not accepting the lessons that are necessary for you to grow as a human being. This always causes you pain.

When you lose your connection to people, you disconnect from the reality of your life. You feel lost and confused. You might need a mentor to help you recognize these traits. Stop living in fear and discover your authentic self. It is the only way to succeed in life.

Hurt

14 Jul

No man is hurt but by himself.

Diogenes said that, and he was right. Every person’s experience is created internally, by him or herself. No one outside of you can tell you what anything means, or whether you are “hurt” or not.
If you feel hurt by something or someone, it is the result of your decision to feel that way. This may be tough to hear, but it is true. You can change your mind at any moment.about how something is affecting you.

We could have had it all

4 Jul

t h e  S O N G

There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch, and it’s bringing me out the dark
Finally I can see you crystal clear
Go ahead and sell me out and I’ll lay your shit bare
See how I’ll leave with every piece of you
Don’t underestimate the things that I will do

There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch
And it’s bringing me out the dark

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

Baby, I have no story to be told
But I’ve heard one of you
And I’m gonna make your head burn
Think of me in the depths of your despair
Making a home down there
As mine sure won’t be shared

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hand
And you played it to the beat

Throw your soul through every open door
Count your blessings to find what you look for
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold
You pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow

(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
We could have had it all
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
It all, it all, it all
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

We could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

You could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)

But you played it
You played it
You played it
You played it to the beat.
