happy-young-woman-with-yenMany happiness studies have tried to determine the financial price of happiness. Some studies look at wealth (savings while other happiness studies look at income.

According to the study rising income, it turns out, produces greater happiness until you get to around $75,000. After that, there are diminishing returns, with more income leading to little or no gain in real happiness.

Focus-on-SuccessThere are three basic or key components for “success” (how ever you define success.) They are:

  1. A strategy
  2. Tactics
  3. Mind-set

The strategy is the “big picture” of what you’d like to accomplish. 

The tactics are the “how” you are going to get there.  The mind-set is the catalyst for implementing the tactics.

breaking plateausWe've all been there! We've begun the process and we are making headway, and then we hit a plateau. It might be weight loss, a spiritual practice, a career endeavor or a home makeover.

communication stylesThere are different ways of communicating which most of us are familiar with. There are probably others on the continuum, but the four basics modes of communication are: passive, assertive, passive-aggressive and aggressive.

We are all working towards becoming assertive. I hear from a majority of my female clients that they struggle with being too passive. They are in fear of being assertive because they feel their assertions may come off as aggressive or as an attack on the other person. They don't want to ruffle feathers, be unlikable or goodness forbid, plain old mean! However, if we don't express our truth we become resentful and often passive-aggressive or even outright aggressive.
