“How we deal with our inner world drives everything.”— Susan David

Susan David, Ph.D. is an award-winning psychologist at Harvard Medical School, an expert on human behavior, and co-founder of the Institute of Coaching. She is the author of Emotional Agility, the concept that educates us in how to deal with our emotions effectively in an increasingly complex world.

The book became the number one Wall Street Journal bestseller, recommended by Forbes, awarded by the New York Times and the Washington Post, translated into 26 languages.

Why? Simply because we live in a society that is in a great deal…

By focusing on two specific areas, I found and reclaimed 20 hours per week to put towards my goals—and it made me happier, too

Perhaps I am one of many to say that it often felt like time was just slipping out of my grasp.

I used to have all these plans of what I want to achieve in a day, week, or a month’s time, and then, days, weeks, and months were long gone and I was still far away from reaching my goals. Or, out of ten quite realistically set goals for a given time period, I only managed to fulfill a good three, and even that with difficulties.

Often, when I looked at the clock and it was 10 a.m., when…

The essential lessons learned from the tough love.

I believe that we enter our romantic relationships because 1. it’s a natural part of life, but also 2. an essential part of our human evolution and development on the individual level. And so we choose (often subconsciously and magnetically) partners that mirror us in some ways and it is through them that we either learn more about ourselves, become stronger selves or go even deeper and find the ways to finally understand and heal our deepest past wounds (usually going all the way to our childhood) opening of which they trigger within us through the relationship dynamics.

Reflect upon 2020 and Prepare for 2021 — If you’ve not done it already

Every year, we stand in front of a challenge — to make the best out of every day that we’ve been given, again. To live as we wish to, to do what we want to, as much as we can, as well as we can, to be as aligned to who we truly are as possible and not to have regrets over who we are — who become, what we do, what we choose to invest our energy in and how we live.

It’s not an easy task, to say the least. However, if we want to feel good about…

Do you still want them back?

The exes: the people we used to love madly, those who drove us mad, they hurt us and we hurt them, and then our bonds collapsed. Still, they’re the people who have their stamp on who we are today — they all shaped us at least in some way, whether we like it or not.

We may have fresh memories of some, and more blurry ones of others. Fondness towards some, or no kind feelings at all about others. There’s also a defining line that marks whether we’ve dealt with losing them and our relationship. …

I strongly believe that no one needs an explanation of what a bad day is or look like. We’ve all had the most various of manifestations of this occurrence.

But it way too usually presents itself this way — something quite bad happens to you in the morning (it might be oversleeping the alarm, breaking your favourite mug or a whole shelf, rushing for an important meeting without an umbrella when it starts raining heavy etc.), and then, the ball of a lot of other bad things — the thoughts and emotions just keep rolling down the mountain of bad…

Quote 1:

When a child is learning how to walk and falls down 50 times, they never think to themselves ‘’Maybe this is not for me.’’ — Johanna Burkhardt

You know how we often try doing something new and then, when the success doesn’t come as soon (or easily) as we expected, we give up on the thing altogether and tell ourselves that either a.) we’re not good enough in this, or b.) that this cannot be for us as it doesn’t come easy and fast.

The truth is, with a vast majority of skills to develop, or our interests and hobbies…

A personal story of where all the infamous ‘ghosting’ can happen

I guess that most of you are familiar with the term — ghosting. And how much it’s coming to picture in this day and age where most of our daily communication moves from face-to-face to digital, or online space, including our personal relationships, and the dating world.

Prior to my experience with ghosting, I’d have thought that most of the ghosting stories happen in the world of online dating, but I’ve learned that ghosting can happen anywhere, anytime.

For those of you still not familiar with this term, it’s basically an act of somebody who’s been a part of your…

What is Coaching?

Coaching is present and future-oriented, action-focused discipline that targets progress and goal achievement. Personal progress that requires a sense of accountability, comes through reflection and self-improvement, and is followed by deliberate action(s).

Coaching is an action-focused discipline based on a two-way conversation, to drive progress and goal achievement.

In effect, coaching is a two-way conversation, aimed to encourage client’s self-reflection, expansion of perception, decision marking, planning and action, to drive progress. In coaching, as compared to counselling and therapy, the past is only used as a reflection tool to help the client determine their present and future goals.

Death as a reminder of life.

I’ve recently come back from the funeral of my good friend’s grandma who passed away in an honourable age of 85. Her death is not related to Covid but persistent heart problems for the past few years, and sadly for her loved ones, this year her heart wasn’t strong enough to keep on beating.

As I was present there, at the funeral, in the company of her family and close ones, including my friend, hearing about who this incredible woman was and how she lived, this setting, the time and space made me think not of death, but paradoxically about…
