This week I want to share with you a quote from Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw: “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in the world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them!”

Tenerife - 26.05.2011 - Yes, we all have our issues, our weaknesses, our miseries, our faults and mistakes. But it’s equally true that we all have abundant resources inside ourselves to change. If today was a cloudy day, make a small resolution for tomorrow, remind yourself of the many occasions where you have overcome yourself and accomplished your goals.


Let’s try to do something together for the next two weeks. I invite you to grab a post-it every night and write down two small goals for the following day. Be concrete and try to fight to death for that goal. In a short period of time, you’ll realise that areas you thought were insurmountable weren’t, and areas of weakness can be transformed by us creating a positive circumstance. Being proactive is feasible, and getting better and happier too.

Talk to you in a couple of weeks.
