    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…

    Life After Loss: Moving Forward With God’s Blessings

    This past Monday was the 4 year anniversary of my late husband Bob passing away. A few days before it, I mentioned it to my husband Matt and told him this day was coming up. He gave me a big hug and told me “sorry.” A few people have asked me the following question “Is Matt ok with you talking about your late husband all the time?” Great question, right? I was worried at the beginning too. About 6 months after we started dating, I was focused on promoting my book Finding Grace. In this book, I talk A LOT about my late husband. In fact, I dedicated this book…

    Grieving is Natural Part of the Healing Process

    With any loss comes grief; a natural process that is our human way of healing emotionally. But all too often this normal process stalls, gets sidetracked or becomes buried deep inside us. The reason for this could be that person who is grieving doesn’t allow themselves to experience the deep sorrow and sadness that comes with grief or this person’s family, friends or culture doesn’t allow for them to fully express their grief. My students have often asked me what they should do if a family member or friend is angry with them when they cry or are sad after losing a loved one. I often ask them one question…

    Finding Success by Doing the Small Things

    I was going through the notes on my phone and found the following from about a year ago. Celebrate the small wins: 1. Got a good night sleep without sleeping pills. 2. Did some meditation and affirmations to intentionally healing myself. 3. Talked to God and asked him for guidance and support. 4. Appreciated the flowers when I opened my bedroom windows. 5. Decide on always asking myself the question “What positive meaning can I find from this situation?” 6. Decide to enjoy what I am doing more intentionally. 7. I was excited for a solid work day without any meetings or disruptions. This exercise is designed to help anyone…

    Finding a Balance Between Mind, Body and Soul

    Life is a balance of our mind, body and soul. Do you believe one area is more important than the others? Some of us believe inner beauty is more important than outer beauty, others believe a smart mind is more important than a fit and healthy body, while others still believe a spiritual life is more important than the mind and body. I believe the mind, body and soul are all equally important. If we ignore one of these areas, our lives become unbalanced and incomplete. Don’t settle with the limiting belief that you can’t have it all. There are many people who DO have it all! They have a…
