The Power of Mentors – Your Path To Success

“Mentorship is simply learning from the mistakes and mastery of a successful person in his/her field.“ – Bernard Kelvin Clive   We all learn by modelling ourselves on others.  As babies we mimic our parents, copying everything they do until we learn to do those things for ourselves; facial expressions, gestures, words, movements…  The fastest way […]

A New Journal Challenge For You!

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” ~ Rumi Writing a journal is something I’ve done since I was a child. I don’t mean a simple diary, where you record the events of the day. You know what I mean… I ate this. I did this. Someone said that. No. I mean a place […]
