Practice Goal Setting Like a Kid

A Child’s Approach to Goal Setting Kids have no problems with goal setting.  If they want to do something, they confidently proclaim that they are going to do it.  If you’ve interacted with small kids at all, chances are you have heard them make statements like this… “I’m going to be an astronaut!” “I want to be a dancer!” “I’m going to be a firefighter just like Pop Pop!” Not only do they make confident declarations, but they also have absolute faith that they can be anything they can imagine.

DESIRE: The Life-Force of Your Relationship

Desire Stacey Martino

Do you crave your partner all day long? Do you walk around all charged up, consumed by the thought of touching him, grabbing him, smelling him and feeling him next to you? Are you just electric with the energy of desire that you have for your man…impatiently anxious for the next time you can get in his pants? Does your man crave you and desire you to the point that he can’t keep his hands off of you anytime you are near? Does he walk by and whisper in your ear all the things he’s going to do to you later to take you to new heights of pleasure and wild abandon? No? Sound like a fantasy? I used to think that too….but now, that could describe any moment of any day of the week in our house! No, we are not “newlyweds”…. Paul and I have been … [Read More...]

After some searching, she finds a position she is very excited about and which she is sure will be the career change that will put her on the path to her dream job and dream life. Fast forward a year or two and this person is again talking about searching for a new job because the one she is in just isn’t “working out.” Or how about the entrepreneur who left her job to start her own business so she would have more control over her schedule and a better work-life balance.
