There is a saying..

“Those who don’t read history, are condemned to repeat it”. But more precisely, cycles in history, life and nature, are what we need to understand.

The “Next Level”?

No one ever got anywhere without putting themselves out there…at least, just a little bit. Your pride is usually the only thing put at risk. Yours in – taking that risk – Coach

Let’s be Grateful…

For what we have, and for whatever comes our way. There are many who are less fortunate than us, and some work much harder…for much less. We have a place to sleep, food to eat, clothes to wear and our choice to take it from there…and for some, the rest is just a bonus, but… Read more »

The Drama Bomb?

Ah, yes…when things get tough, some of us use the Drama bomb.

Close the Loop?

Ever applied somewhere and never heard back? Or been asked to be involved to participate in another’s deal only to be left hanging?
