How you ever faced a long-term goal that you know you should stick to? Are you one of these people that are easy to get enthusiastic in the beginning but lose steam along the line? Well, I am one of these people and I am facing a long-term (4 year) project that I have to finish.

How to Get the Most of a Mid-winter Vacation

You do not want to worry about your job or the future. You do not want to sink in the past. Just focus your mind on the present and be on vacation.

This year for the first time I took a mid-winter vacation and I spent it in the south on the beach (not skiing like my husband wanted). In this article, I share my tips on getting the most of your vacation with or without a child.

Subconscious Mind – How to Unlock and Use Its Power

The subconscious mind is the powerful secondary system that runs everything in your life. Learning how to stimulate the communication between the conscious and the subconscious minds is a powerful tool on the way to success, happiness and riches.

The subconscious mind is a data-bank for everything, which is not in your conscious mind. It stores your beliefs, your previous experience, your memories, your skills. Everything that you have seen, done or thought is also there.

It is also your guidance system. It constantly monitors the information coming from the senses for dangers and opportunities. And it would communicate that information to the conscious mind, which you want it to communicate (more on that tricky topic – later).

The communication between the subconscious and the conscious mind is bidirectional. Every time when you have an idea, or an emotion, a memory or an image from the past, this is the subconscious mind communicating to your conscious mind. The communication in the other way is not so trivial and is achieved using the principle of auto-suggestion.

This article will introduce the powers of the subconscious mind and how they can be used on the way to success. You will learn how to communicate better with your subconscious and how to set it on the track you want it to follow.
