My Lesson in Tactical Manipulation and Self Worth

~by Debbie Vandenakker~ . He said the words. The ones designed to hit at the heart of my self-worth. “You aren’t worth what I’m paying you.” I felt like a cartoon character that had all of the oxygen sucked out of the room. I left that discussion hurt, angry and ashamed. I spent two weeks hiding out with those words playing in a constant mocking loop … “You aren’t worth what I’m paying you. You aren’t worth…” It was the single biggest blow to my professional ego (and personal belief system) that I have experienced. And it taught me a

How to Gain Control of Your Thoughts

~by Debbie Jacobs~   Like many others, I had to learn how to gain control of my thoughts. Giving up sarcasm was huge. I had to come up with a new approach to humor.

How to Shut Down Your Negative Thoughts

~by Debbie Jacobs~ Negative thoughts are just non-productive. They carry emotional upset and waste precious time.

How to Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life

~by Debbie Jacobs~ Change your thoughts, change your life. I heard this from Louise Hay in 2010 and decided to turn it into a Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life challenge. Yes, I committed to seeing if this statement rang true. I was an extremely negative thinker.  My perspective was always, “the glass is half empty.” I habitually came from a place of “no.”  Sarcasm was my best friend and fear was my constant companion. And where did this come from? Where else, my conditioning. My childhood, though perceivably privileged, was predominantly negative, and at the age of 39, I

How Hating Doing Dishes Changed My Outlook on Business

~by Natalia Levey~   Is there one household chore you absolutely hate doing? Laundry? Never found this one hard. As a kid growing up in Russia, we had no washing machine or dryer; all the laundry was done by hand in the bathtub. Needless to say, we were a lot more careful about getting our clothes dirty. Today the machines are smarter than ever – they do all the work for you. Just pre-spot, toss stuff in, transfer to the dryer, fold – done! What used to take hours is now down to 10-15 minutes. Ironing? Back to my laundry

Are the Voices in Your Head Treating You Badly?

~by Haley Lynn Gray~   “You’ll never make any money”, “You’re fat”, “And Dumb” are just a few of the things that the voices in my head have said to me at various points. I could go on, but I’m pretty sure you get the idea.  Why is it that we allow the voices in our heads to treat us in a way that nobody else in our lives is allowed to?
