Being CEO and the Greatest Wife in the World

“Ninety percent of this stuff is not that serious, we just get crazy about it.” –Ursula Burns CEO Xerox

It’s becoming more and more common to see women at the top of the corporate ladder that has long been dominated by men. Finally many women are being recognized for their tremendous leadership skills and business achievements.

Their vision, creativity, and relentless determination to make a difference, is paying big dividends.

A Message about Your Unhappiness

Your unhappiness came with a price that maybe you aren’t fully aware of.

When did you give away your Self-Worth?

Meaning…that you could only feel good about yourself when you felt loved, accepted and good enough for this other person… who is typically your spouse.

The Surprising Personal Consequences of Cheating

What price do you pay when your personal integrity has left you?

Cheating and affairs are common. More common than you might think, and it has never been easier for a married man or woman to hook up for sex outside of their marriage.

People make mistakes. We all make mistakes.

How to Avoid Valentine’s Day Disappointment

“Your relationship will always reflect what you do and fail to do”

The big day of love is just about here, Happy Valentine’s Day…or maybe not. That all depends on how you feel about your partner and the overall status of your marriage.

This year, over 1 Billion Valentine’s cards will be given, many of them exchanged from a sense of obligation, or to meet an expectation of society and/or your partner.

Change Your Unconscious Thoughts to Change Your Life

The thoughts you have on a daily basis either propel you forward or keep you stuck.

A father brought his 7 year old son to see me because he was having panic attacks and missing lots of school. He had been to a psychologist for a few months, but nothing had changed, and he had not improved. And the panic attacks continued.

Can you predict what your next thought will be?

Making Relationship Struggles a Thing of the Past

What You Are About to Remember…

Is that your past behaviors, interactions and reactions to your partner are ruling your relationship today.

For better or worse.

That’s a lot of ingrained, unconscious habits and patterns that you have with each other if you have been together a long time.

If you want to improve your relationship, you must lighten and soften your approach with your partner.

Are You Emotionally Free Enough?

What REALLY Pushes Your Buttons?

Have you ever been in an argument with your partner and maybe it escalated into something ugly but later on, you couldn’t remember what that argument was about?

You’re not alone. I have been there myself.

Isn’t it true that no one can push our buttons like our partner?

More New Year Nonsense…and the Path to Unhappiness.

What do you vow will be different in your life this year?

Did you know that of the people who set New Year’s resolutions, by the end of the first week of January 25% of them will have given up?

By the end of January almost half have decided that whatever it was they wanted to change was no longer important so they quit pursuing it.

People’s commitment continues to melt away like the spring snow as the months go by.

Thanks for Nothing

This is Thanksgiving week, and the official beginning of the Holiday Season. A very special time of year…at least for many of us.
