The other day, reading a book by one of my favorite authors, I fell upon an ancient text, which I found extremely profound and wise. This text was written many…

It is almost the end of the year. You do a quick check and you acknowledge that you have achieved some of your goals, whilst others were missed. And although…
Career can be defined by most as what we do for work every day, so we can pay our bills and take care of our families. However, for some, career…
I’m a bit of a workaholic. Okay, that might be an understatement. I’m a lifelong, die-hard workaholic, and business is addictive to me.
Joy is one of my very favorite parts of being alive. Joy resonates with every cell in our body because it is our original state, what we were created to feel and to live in. I actually think it’s probably everybody’s favorite thing; they just maybe haven’t given it that name yet.
As we are well into the holiday’s season, we all get in a behavior of spending, to secure we are going to be aligned with the festivities. Nevertheless, it is interesting to watch some patterns as they block our potential for joy. And yes, what would be more appropriate to talk about at this period, than abundance?
Abundance is one of my favorite subjects, as, when you conquer the feeling of abundance, you are setting yourself prepared to conquer the world. Nothing is impossible if you feel free, satisfied and ready to focus on your development, your evolution, your growth. You are doing things, not because you need them and your well-being depends on them, but because they help you move to the next level in your life.
Abundance is a mindset, a way of seeing your reality. And like any mindset, it is also a choice, a choice that you can make right now, in this moment, and every day of your life.
That is a critical question, because when you dare to answer it honestly and firmly, you are deciding about the rest of your life. And it is ok whatever that decision might be, as long as it is a conscious one.
You might feel you don’t belong in your job.
It is quite common, on the first days of January, some people to be very focused on properly recording their goals. They write, rewrite, correct, add, remove things in their list. This period helps make them feel strong and hopeful, since a new year is just starting, and the goals set promise it will be amazing.
Ι was also in that mood, when I saw a cartoon of Quinto on Mafalda, which was confiding in the reader: “It is not the new year that needs to be better, it is you”.
Prerequisite towards meaningful support of self and others
I am often asked how I come up with my next article. I smile and answer that it is my experience on the moment that always dictates the theme. So, this time I am talking about detachment and empathy, as I came repeatedly across the challenges that people encounter in applying them in their everyday life.
Detachment and empathy are possibly among the most misunderstood behaviors or most difficult to exercise. It is hard for people to grasp how they can care for something or someone, and still be detached from what that person or the situation is creating or even yet, how they can show empathy for situations that are not related to their own experience.
