Today I’m feeling slightly despondent and as a result I’m beginning to doubt myself, but I know that I have no reason to, so that’s positive.

I usually act on my intuition and use that as my guide to make any decisions I have to make. Any emails I have to send, phone calls I have to make,  they’re done through my intuition and so far …

Giving your best

It’s very frustrating when you know you always give of your best, but others don’t see it as your best. Perhaps it’s simply got something to do with others not meeting their own exacting standards.

Goals are meant to inspire us, but instead they throw us off balance. A positive lifestyle helps us lead a more positive life, with a more positive outcome on what we want to achieve on some of those goals.
