How to Motivate Yourself– Five Tips for Helping You Achieve Your Goals

One of the big challenges we all have is how to motivate ourselves to do the things we KNOW we need to do, the things we know will give us more energy if we just did them.

Dealing with Misfortune; How to Survive and Thrive

Most of the time when people come in for coaching or for a tarot reading they’re looking for help.
