Being resilient is key to becoming successful in life.
Being resilient is having the strength to get back up whatever the situation. It is the capacity to keep moving forward even when the future looks bleak. It is the ability to brave the storm and have the blind faith that somehow things will work out. Too often we believe that good things happen only to others. That is a limiting paradigm that needs to be replaced with a positive one. Good things happen to whoever believe that it can happen to her / him. Positive change takes place when someone shows resilience no matter the circumstances.
Challenges can break us or make us. It all comes down to how we perceive them and how we take on challenges when they show up. My question to you : How do challenges affect you? It is an important question as it will make you assess your behaviour as a whole and take you one step further towards living a balanced life. In this very practical article, I will share with you My 5-Step Plan When Facing A Challenge. Why? I noticed that too many people fall into the trap of giving in to challenges.

What is your take on Failure? We all react differently to failure and more often than not, in a very negative way. On my way to the top, from nothing to becoming the successful entrepreneur I am today, I got to experience failure at different levels and finally got to see failure for what it really is, i.e : a learning experience supposed to make us grow. You know the old adage : “Whatever does not kill you, makes you stronger”. To me, the same goes for failure. This inspirational article about failure intends to help you gain a better understanding of failure and its implications in your life. Your take on failure will determine the outcomes of a negative situation or circumstance in your life.
“Love your neighbor as yourself”. Need I say more ? Do you LOVE what you see in the mirror every single morning ? Do you LOVE yourself ? It sounds like a silly question. But it is not. As a matter of fact, it is a deep question that everyone should ponder on. Self-Love is a Key to a Balanced Life. I know that now. Before I met my husband about 18 years ago, I was a mess. I was a shadow of myself. I hated myself for having had a child at such a young age and I developed many complexes about not being good at math, about not being beautiful enough, about not deserving love, among other things. As I write this article today, I am my number one fan and I praise God every single day for the achieved, smart, elegant, lovable, passionate (and the list goes on.. LOL)..achieved woman, I am today. I have come across so many people who admitted not loving themselves that I decided to write an article about it. I believe that it is a crucial topic to tackle considering the implications of the absence of self-love in one’s life. Over the years I have realized that Self-Love is a Key to a Balanced Life. It is one of the secrets to my success. In this article, I share 6 reasons why I know for a fact that Self-Love is the foundation of a healthy, successful, happy and prosperous life.
The Best Time in Your Life Is Now. Yesterday is gone and beyond reach, today is at your doorstep, tomorrow is yet to come. Today, you have the possibility, the power, the authority and the duty to take action towards realizing your objectives, to take decisions that will change the course of your life, to live each day with love and passion. The problem is too many people live in the past, sometimes without even noticing it and as a consequence, fail to see the many opportunities that lie in front of them. I know what I am talking about because I was one of them. For many years I lived in the past. For too long I carried the weight of the hurt, shame and struggle on my present and fortunately I realized it on time to stop, redefine my life and enjoy my present. The Best Time In Your Life Is Now.
This week I learned a valuable lesson. It is crucial to Know Your Worth. Whatever circumstances you may find yourself into, stand your ground. Easier said than done, right ? I must say, it is not something easy to do. It requires guts and much more, but when you do not stand your ground, you have much more to lose. This week I turned down a considerable business offer. I also closed a chapter in my journey in entrepreneurship, as I know for a fact that I will never work with that client again. I left the corporate world to become an entrepreneur because of my aspirations, principles and my thirst for more. This position gives me the freedom to make important decisions such as refusing terms of contracts that go against my work ethics, my value as a professional service provider and my philosophy of life. Know Your Worth. Stand your ground. There is a better business deal, a better client somewhere waiting for you.
