Instead of making New Years' Resolutions this year, what if you chose to simply embody a different part of yourself? How would your life change?
Adapted from the studies of psychologists Robert Moore and Carl Jung, there are 4 main archetypes that have been found across mythology, spiritual practices, and human history: The Sovereign, the Warrior, the Magician, and the Lover. We all have each of these personas within us, and by embodying them, we can call certain powerful and spiritual aspects of ourselves out to help us achieve our highest potential.
There is no doubt that 2020 was a year that caused us to question the way we live our life, our mortality, and what is most important to us - it was a year of magnificent shifts. Now 2021 calls us to use what we learned and to step up as a leader. Let's go on a journey to introduce these 4 ancient parts of yourself, and how you can call upon them to bring out your best in 2021!
The Sovereign is wise, seasoned and...
Most people in the world, especially Empaths (Quiz “How Empathic Are You?”), sell themselves short and get rattled by inappropriately given harsh criticism. Without appropriate boundaries, Empaths can easily absorb the words and energy of all their worst critics, including themselves. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people are critics, because they do not feel good enough about themselves to praise others.
Most people sell themselves short in one way or another. The root cause of not believing that you can do more, be more, and give more in this moment is due to criticism in either your earlier or present life by an authority figure. People sell themselves short because they believe what these authority figures, people they trust, or influencers tell them.
The truth is, the vast majority of people do not believe they are innately good enough. That is why there is so much criticism and judgment in the world today: People...
Now, more than ever, it's important to find the courage to speak out. Every time you speak your truth, you make it safe for others to do so as well. The world is constantly changing, and although embracing the direction it's going is extremely important, we must never forget how important it is for all of us not to feel censored, but to feel free.
Let's first take a look at reality. Breathe in for 5 beats, hold for 5 beats, breathe out for 5. Our perception of reality depends on the information we have been taking in regarding it, PLUS beliefs we hold that were made from our own life experiences.
Therefore, it's safe to say that there are unlimited perceptions of reality. But no matter what your perspective, if you are holding resistance to that reality, you will feel pain. The first step in healing that pain is to accept what is going on, and find some way to be in harmony with it. See reality as it is, and...
I was in a restaurant one day and the waiter came by to show us the specials. Of course, for an empath, we can see when a waiter is just going through a spiel. This waiter sincerely loved everything he was recommending. When we told him what we wanted, no matter how strange, he would bring it out with all the trimmings.
We engaged in very nice conversation and actually got to know each other in a very authentic way. Nothing was forced and everything he said added value to our conversation, our dining experience, and our lives.
However, once we got our entrees, one of us realized he didn't bring out the appetizer, and mentioned it to him. He immediately felt terrible and asked if we still wanted it (we didn't). Then he asked if he could get us extra of anything at all (we didn't need it). However, at the end, he ended up giving us our dessert to rectify the mishap.
We were very happy with the service, and once we were done, we gave him a very good tip and...
Have you ever written a heartfelt message to someone you really cared about -- whether it be someone you enjoyed working with, someone you admire, or maybe your significant other -- and then had the unfortunate experience of seeing that they read your message but have not replied?
Maybe a day or two has passed, and you realized they won't get to your message and you start to think that you must not be important to them, or that you never mattered. If they really cared, they would write back, right?
There can be many reasons a person won't reply and can range from:
Many people don't...

Have you ever wondered what makes an interview memorable to a manager? Do you struggle with getting noticed even if you have a significant skillset?
Sometimes a bad interview can dampen your vibe, and ruin the chances of getting where you want to be -- whether it be an internal move or landing that dream job. But it doesn't mean you have to pull a circus trick to get noticed. If you study, internalize and incorporate these 3 things, you'll be far ahead of anyone else in being remembered by the recruiter or hiring manager.
Here are 3 things I learned in my journey to make an interview unforgettable.
Often your purpose in life is rooted in what you loved...
Worth Is Inherent And Eternal
So many people don't know that you cannot lose self worth. How you choose to live and the meaning you place on you being here in this world is entirely of your choosing.
When the seed of a rose is planted, and the roots start to grow, it may not yet look like a rose, but within that seed it has always been a rose.
If you crumple up a $20 bill, it's still worth $20. If you step on it and bury it in the dirt, it's still worth $20. As long as the $20 is intact, there is nothing you can do to diminish it's value.
People choose to diminish their value by gauging the other people's perceptions of them. The truth is that the only perception that...
Let's be real here. Comparisons to others take up SOOOO much of your time! Time spent insecure about how better looking another colleague looks than you, how much more successful they are and faster moving up the corporate ladder than you, or how much money they have to buy a boat and have a maid.
How many of you have spent days sometimes feeling bad about yourself just because you saw someone else as better than you in some ways? Or spent days at home eating chocolate because you felt you couldn't measure up to the superstar at work? How does all of that super suck?
You can look at people in 3 different ways:
1. As better than you (you are looking up at them / up to them)
2. As inferior to you (you are looking down on them)
3. As equals (no one is better than or worse than you).
The truth is, unless you look at people as equals, you're going to have pain in your life. When you compare yourself to others, you are either in position 1 or 2.
Real Life Lessons...
The golden thread between their teachings, and the most powerful strategy I've found to gain success with absolute certainty is doing what you hate, and doing it first. If you have to fire someone, do it first. If the worst thing of the day for you is getting out of bed into the shower, jump out into that cold shower without thinking.
The reason this works is because it builds POSITIVE MOMENTUM to make real changes in your life. By getting what you hate out of the way, you are freeing up the space for things you want - a much better fit.
By removing that employee that is not a cultural fit, you leave the space for a peak performer that inspires the group.
By jumping into a cold shower without negotiating with your brain on waiting another minute, or that you want to watch a...
