The other day, we were watching Cobra Kai on TV and there was this scene. In the dojo, the sensei is giving a speech to a bunch of new students. So he lined up the students, and he walked up to one of the newbies, and put up his fist right in front of he newbie's face. The newbie flinched. And then he walked up to another newbie and did the same thing. Again. The newbie flinched.

 

The sensei then turned around, and said to the class: 

You flinched because you are afraid. You have never taken a punch to the face and you want to turn around and run. By the end of the day, all of you have to take a punch in the face or don't come back tomorrow.'

 

So the new students all took...

A few years ago, we started talking about where we should retire, and we came up with a few exotic places that is remote but not isolated, with nice weather, friendly people, and all that. And then we talked about how do we transition from our work. So the topic of working from home came up and our goal was to eventually transition our work so that it can be done 100% from any location in the world.

 

So this year, the year 2020, may have been a weird one and has turned many of our lives upside down, and our daily routines have become a complete mess.

 

But this has also been the best year of my life! My dreams of many years have finally manifested! We wanted to work 100% from...

Success in the New Normal Part 1- Know what you want

 

 [The Foolish Couple are founders of the Foco Academy, nutrition specialists and success coaches. We focus on teaching Jack Canfield’s Success Principles and applying the principles to the 3 areas of life that money can’t buy, that is, Health, Time, and Love Relationship.]

For many of us, we've been programmed, since childhood, about what we should and should not do. We've been told repeatedly in our childhood to be sensible and to behave like a good kid. What does that mean? Our parents and our teachers were programming us to behave in the way that they believe is the good way.

 

It's not that they have bad intentions. Your parents probably had the best intentions for you. I know that my parents had good intentions for me. Telling me to have good grades in school. Getting a 'B' is not good enough. I should've gotten an 'A'. I'm told, repeatedly, that to have a good life, I must get a college degree, even better if I have a master's degree. And that I should...

3 tips to Stay Productive at Home

It’s been 3 months since the lockdown.

Most of us are asked to stay at home and don’t come out unless we have to. And that’s a shock because, before that, we were going at 100 miles an hour, chasing that job promotion or trying to make more money or meet our goals.

 All of a sudden. We come to a full stop. We turn off our engine. We are no longer chasing that goal or money or fame or whatever. Those instagram-worthy pictures are no longer necessary. There are no more ‘stories’ on Facebook that we must follow.

 

Sure, this pandemic has caused a lot of losses, in lives, in money, in jobs. But it gives most of us ONE thing that we all wanted, and...

FOMO- Fear Of Missing Out

 

As fall comes along, we watch the leaves fall and the days get shorter, we are also heading towards Halloween. Every year, on October 31st, thrill seekers would make their way to haunted houses looking for spirits, ghosts, the supernatural, and whatever else you could think of.

 

Hi. I am Minna from the Foolish Couple. And in today’s episode, I’m going to talk about FEAR.

 

Halloween is really about being scared and facing your fear. So, what is fear? I think we all know what FEAR is, and we all have our own fears. But have you ever counted how many of your FEARS actually become real?

 

In other words, most of the fears come from our imaginations. What I’m saying is that FEAR, stands for Fantasized Events Appearing Real.

 

As humans we are fearful of different things. Andy is afraid of spiders because he watched the movie Arachnophobia and every time, he sees a spider, it reminds him of the movie.

 

I am afraid of snakes, even though I have...

The One Thing You are Missing in Life Part 3

 

Hello. My name is Minna from the Foolish Couple. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve talked about why you suck at reaching your own goals. The fact that you get into your own way is the reason why you need a coach. Everyone needs a coach, if you want to succeed. Even coaches need coaches. And the best in the world, no matter what field they are in, they have the best coaches.

 

Having a coach that can work with you and that you are able to work with, will change your entire life. A good coach will sympathize with you, but will push you to your limit. They will change your perspective on how you perceive your problems and road blocks, and stimulate your creativity to get you out of your box and reach for your goal.

 

A good coach will support you and mentor you, but they will not baby you. That’s what your mom is for and that’s why never have your own mom as your coach. It won’t work. If you want to manifest your dreams, go get yourself a coach.

A few years ago, I gave a lunch talk to a non-profit women’s group and the topic was called the 8 ways to infinite productivity. The methods that I talked about during that hour-long talk was really quite profound because of its simplicity and how easy it was to implement. 

So here I’m re-iterating some of the high points of that talk and to give you the highlights of what I’ve talked about. 

The 5 things that I’m going to mention here, if you are not already doing it, once you start implementing these 5 things you will notice a significant improvement in your productivity.

How to be successful this year?

 

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...
