Emotional Balance for Leaders

Everyone has felt the turbulence of strong emotional feelings.

Problems of the head? Solutions of the heart!

The purpose of this post is to give you a short synopsis of the journey from continually reacting to the challenges of life. And to switch to a liberated mind, that has learned to listen to arising emotions and accurately assess what the real issues are that I’m currently facing.

Are you searching for Lasting Happiness? Great News: the search can be over!

Are you associating ‘happiness’ with an experience that is sustainable?

Therefor it’s worth searching for?
If so, how far have you come?
How satisfied are you with your findings?

Who is running the show?

Intolerable confusion

Most people would fully understand the phrase, “It’s doing my head in!”

This is a crucial juncture for us that makes us or breaks us. I recall a dark period in my life as a fourteen-year-old lad. There seemed no escape from what looked at the time, terrible conditions at home.
