Dear Dr. Romance: I came across your web site when I was desperately looking for motivation. I'm a salesman selling first class products but I couldn't get motivated and it's been a problem for months. It's been getting worse. I read "Motivation and How to Create It (Good Boss/Bad Boss)" and now I'm sorted out.
Advise author Lisa Shultz shares the importance of positive communication. For internal and external communication alike, it is important to keep out the bad and instead, only focus on the golden parts of life.
If we don't get wise to our subconscious self-bullying, we'll never open ourselves up to the possibility of finding happiness and love. Learn how to reverse harmful thought patterns.
“You’re not good enough!” This thought plagues all women (and men), regardless of size. We know we would be successful in life if only we had more money, were taller, were thinner, had more hair, had straigh hair, were younger, were older, etc.
I have always been a very positive, outgoing woman but I've lived most of my life without positive female friendships. So, I decided to make a concerted effort to cultivate friendships with healthy, inspiring, communicative women, and here's what I have learned.
“You’ve got to accentuate the positive.” (Song by Harold Arlen & Johnny Mercer, 1944) A positive attitude (or even a less negative attitude) has the potential to change lives. This old song lyric came to mind while reading The Roller-Coaster Years – Raising Your Child Through the Maddening Yet Magical Middle School Years (Gianetti & Sagarese). This is a fascinating book for parents of 10-15-year-olds, and for parents who want a gl
Make your Valentine’s Day about love in general instead of just about romantic love. It’s your holiday and it's possible to adjust it so you feel strong instead of weak, happy instead of sad, loved instead of lonely. You have a choice. Option 1: You can choose to whine and cry with negative, bitter single women and justify why you're happy to be single so that you may at some point believe it yourself (I realize there are some of us who really are happy single) or commiserate as to why all men are the s
“Midlife crisis.” When I hear those 2 words, images of gray haired men driving new sports cars and divorcing their wives of 30 years for a sexy young thing spring to mind. Many people think that only men go through a midlife crisis, when the truth is, women do too. The difference is in why and how each gender handles it.
Imagine your life as a journey with many crossroads, detours and alternate routes as you head towards your destiny. I truly believe that each one of us is born with a destiny plan and a mission on this earth. As I work with global families, I stress the importance of keeping a mental image of confident success as you struggle to learn the daily tasks of life. As humans travel along the journey of life, it is natural to encounter obstacles and roadblocks. Many of us get “stuck in the mud” and can’t figure out what to do, so it is easier to just stay stuck. Developing alternate plans or routes will help get you back on track. The Universe Rewards Positive Movement
The Law of Attraction isn't just a myth. Maybe people believe in the notion that if you put good energy and thoughts out into the universe on a daily basis, that is what you'll receive in return. Putting this into practice is easier said than done but that doesn't mean you can't give it a shot, especially if you've been down in the dumps lately or recognize that negative thinking has taken too strong of a hold in your life lately.
When I was a child, it seemed like every adult in my zip code had an uncanny skill for making a “mountain out of a molehill.” In other words, of taking the smallest shred of negativity and amplifying all the tyranny and rottenness that shred of negativity may have implied. Before I go any further, let me give credit where credit is due. Exaggeration—the ability to weave a grand story out of next to nothing—is a very creative endeavor. It takes a keen eye, creative determination, and a lofty ability to wax poetic on all that is wrong.
Our emotions are like most things. They're not bad, except in excess. It is natural to experience anger, fear, anxiety, disappointment, resentment, judgment, and guilt ... on occasion. However, negative emotions become all-consuming, toxic, and devastating to our emotional health and our intimate relationships if we fail to deal with them effectively.
Several of my dating coaching clients have contacted me this week feeling crummy about online dating. They are tired of the emailing and the men disappearing. They are bored with guys who don’t follow through or ask for a second date. As a dating coach for women in midlife, I totally understand how disheartening it can be. I myself went through this at 40 to find the man who became my adorable husband of 12 years now.
