When’s the last time you actually did something good for yourself such as starting a new good habit?
What did you do?
Did you try eating a cleaner, more organic diet?
Did you try doing exercises to lose weight or to just get in better shape?
Did you try doing something challenging, either mentally or physically?
How did you feel?
Did you feel good? Were you happy? Satisfied? Fulfilled? Excited? Thrilled? Did you feel alive? Strong?
What happened after? Do you want to do it again? Did you do it again?
Were you able to adopt that as a new habit? Or did you bounce back to your old, bad habits?
The truth is, there are many things that we would try once or twice, because we know that it would be good for...

This week we’re actually on vacation, visiting the beautiful Vancouver British Columbia so we’re keeping this one casual.
Recently I’ve got a comment from someone that I worked with, and she actually told me that I am the happiest person she’s ever met. And that got me thinking. Why am I always happy? Why are we happy?
And it actually took us a while to come up with these 5 things that makes us happy, and we believe that these 5 things is the foundation to pretty much everyone’s happiness. And these are actually pretty simple things that anyone can do. So let’s get started with our first thing.
The first thing that makes anyone happy, is, GRATITUDE.
You may have heard this before, you know, Oprah praising the...

Most of our reading materials are more educational or informational. Magazines wise, we read the Success Magazine, Dr. Oz’s The Good Life, Women’s Health, Eating Well, amongst others. Books wise, most are on personal development. The Success Principles, Blue Ocean Strategy, How Not to Die, etc.
Even during long commute times, we listen to the likes of Tony Robbins, Tim Ferris and other podcasts.
If these sound BORING to you. Well, that’s OK.
But, my guilty pleasure? Well, I’ve read all 7 books of Harry Potter, The Twilight series, Hunger Games Trilogy, and, of course, 50 shades of Gray.
Steamy? Yes. Intimate? You Bet.
But I have also picked up a thing or two that has nothing to do with the sexuality.
To quote Christian Gray, in the first book, during his interview by Anna, he was questioned on how he attained his success:
Anna: ‘Maybe you got lucky’
Christian: ‘The Harder I work, the...
Don't want a boring, expensive, disappointing Valentine's Day? This year, have your Perfect Valentines Day!
Once a year, lovers around the world celebrate their love together, through various gestures, mostly dinner, gifts, travel, or whatever they desire. Whatever is 'Their Thing'. Lovers strive to celebrate their Perfect Valentines Day.
I love Valentine's Day, because it is the day where me and my husband first started dating. That was 29 years ago and I remembered that day clearly as yesterday. That feeling, the connection between us, the 'future' that I saw with him back then. I remember.
Every year we celebrate our Perfect Valentine's day. Like most couples, we chose a nice restaurant for dinner. Eating well is a big thing for us. It is 'Our Thing'. And of course, gifts, cards, kisses and hugs. And other unspeakable things (wink!)
Does it ever get bored? mundane? disappointing? HECK NO!
Every Valentine's day is a Perfect Valentines Day. Because we decided that it would be...
Happy Chinese New Year of the Rooster!!!!!!
As with every new year, there are changes that come into our lives.
This year, we have a new leader of the nation. There are a lot of noise about what he may or may not do.
But at the end of the day, no one can change your life. Only you can change your life.
Where you are today has nothing to do with your boss, your spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend and least of all a new government. You are where you are because that is where you want to be.
This may not make any sense to you.
You may not be happy with your job, your relationship, your business may be stagnant, your kids don't listen to you.
You are where you are because you are letting others dictate what you have and how you behave. It is time to stop blaming everyone else and take back control of your life. So here is how to be successful for the new year:
Patience: have patience in everything you do, nothing happens over night, but nothing will happen if you do nothing at...
