Want to be a celebrity? Be a celebration!

Want to be a celebrity? Be a celebration!

The holidays are a special time of year.  We slow down and make time to see family we don’t see regularly. People strive to be kind and generous. We break out the fine china, buy gifts for the ones we love, splurge on feasts, and don our best holiday sweaters to mark the occasion.  What if you lived today, and every day, as if in the spirit of celebration?

The Simple Secret to Happiness

The Simple Secret to Happiness

People want to be happy. It is, in a very real way, the goal of life. But the search for happiness often proves elusive. People spend their whole lives searching for it without finding it, often spending fortunes in its pursuit. People commonly, and futilely, search for happiness in acquisition, success, experiences, and indulgence. They search in these places because that is where they are taught by society to search for it. However, none of them actually work to create happiness.

The Power of Asking for Support

The Power of Asking for Support

Many see leadership as being in charge and in control: strong, powerful, and capable of doing it all – alone. There may be the assumption that somehow asking for support is a sign of weakness and invalidates the efforts that someone is making. You may be having a conversation with yourself that you don’t need to ask for support until you are stuck and have no other choice.
