    Life Lessons in Success: Meet My Co-Author Angie Dobransky

    One of the best decisions I have ever made was to sign for the one-year Train the Trainer program offered by author, speaker and trainer Jack Canfield. Not only did I learn important principles during this program but I also had the opportunity to work and grow with some amazing individuals. It probably comes as no surprise then that when I learned that some of my Train the Trainer classmates were going to write a book together, I natural jumped at the chance to be a part of it. The name of that book is Life Lessons In Success and today I would like to introduce to you one of…

    What does Finding Grace Mean to You?

    Did you know that the original title of my book was called From Widow to Boss Lady? My publisher suggested that I change it to Finding Grace and I love that I did!! What does the title Finding Grace mean to you? The many people that have read my book have their own different interpretations. Below is my interpretation as an author at this very moment of my life; I am pretty sure it will change accordingly as I keep learning and growing. šŸ˜‰ Finding Grace is about finding who I am.

    Make Your Goals a Part of Your Everyday Routine

    Sunday was the last day of the first month of 2021. How is the new year going so far for you? Are you still on track with what you planned on doing? Now is a good time to go back to review your progress and adjust accordingly. One thing I have learned in order to reach my goals more often is to make my daily routine a true reflection of my goals (or my priorities). If I don’t plug in what I need to do on a daily basis to reach my goals, then my goals just become nice wishes or dreams. In my book Finding Grace, my goals (or…

    Gracefully Grieving: The Power of Grief

    Growing up in poverty in China with an abusive mom, I had always believed that my life came second compared to others. I was allowed to only have my older brother’s hand-me-downs (I didn’t deserve much since I was a girl) and my desire for a better life was just a wild dream that would never happen. Sounds pretty messed up right? I realized this too later on in my life, especially after I lost my late husband. Somehow my grief was like giving birth to a new life and I came to realize that grieving has two sides just like a coin. One side is very painful and the…

    Using Affirmations to Achieve Your Goals

    The one thing that is used a lot when coaching and training others is the power of affirmations. Affirmations are positive statements that can help you challenge and overcome your self-sabotaging behaviors and negative thoughts. When you repeat affirmations often and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes and remove limiting beliefs. Below are my affirmations from last year. Now when I look back, these affirmations have helped me reach the point I am at now which is that I truly believe I am loved by God, that I am good enough and worthy enough in God’s eyes. “I am so much more than my emotions, my…

    Achieve More With Your Life Plan

    I have developed the habit of making a list of yearly goals for my life plan for the past 7 years now. The key for better results is to go back to that list and check the progress of each goal on a monthly basis. This allows us to move things around (if needed) to help make things happen. Below are a few categories on my life plan for 2020 but as you can imagine, some of my goals have become more difficult to reach due to COVID. All we can do is make the best out of whatever we have been given, right? Health 1. Heal my shoulder and…
