did you know that apparently, lucky people have an open mind and are ready to see the unexpected? “Luck may not so much be luck, but whether or not our mindset leaves us open to opportunities we would otherwise miss because we’re so absolutely sure of what we want”.
Ok, so how about being focused and finishing a task?
Can you do both?
Probably when you focus on an objective, but not on the specific way this objective should come into shape.
For example, let’s say you want to marry a sexy, gorgeous, rich and young man. Crazy in love with you etc.
You shouldn’t start saying that he should also have brown hair and blue eyes, and work in the film industry. Or say that you should only meet him through acquaintances. Or object to the fact that he has three cats and two dogs. And two kids from a former union.
The same thing with a job.
If the main objective is something inspiring, some flexibility is needed, I guess regarding the details. As to where on earth. For example.
well, a friend asked me how I see things in London. Am I making any progress in terms of jobs? What is to be overconfident, realistic or having a good instinct for things?
Am I insisting on a course of action because I am just unwilling to be a realist?
Am I doing something different?
Have I asked anybody’s feedback?
Well, I actually did.
I need to go where other people can’t, or won’t.
And, to publish where it is possible to publish, instead of waiting for a perfect publishing. house.
More could be better.
I am considering a visit to the hairdresser and if I stay with the same colour I have been lately or if I try something a little bit more intense. I might go for that actually.
Is there a colour that makes people look more dependable? Brown probably, if it comes to accountants. How about artists?
If you come with a brown colour and the way an accountant dresses you might come up as boring and lacking creativity.
Is there a way to be ourself whatever that means and to be successful in a random interaction?
Maybe it is to be self-confident and show you are the right person.
Not because you fit exactly the role, but because you are capable of doing it?
this coffee shop looks like an airport with all these people crossing here and there.
So, let’s say that I wake up with a headache and morning walk, or anything of the kind is not working.
Ok, I wanted to wake up early, it didn’t work.
Then, I suggest not to insist.
At least I don’t have any meetings today, and I can work from home, or rest.
How about showing myself some respect and taking it easy.
Let’s give oneself a break, and do something different, read something different, let our mind wander, no matter what.
It feels like I need a change of perspective.
I already started working on the novel, so this is great already.
for me it’s like a beginning of a New Year, so it is time for an update: am I taking the path of self-development?
Because this is independent of age, in my eyes.
Hm, more fun? More interaction with significant people?
And all the practical questions that go with it.
But first and foremost, let’s face it:
My heart’s desire is writing.
So, no matter what, the day should include this.
And then, sharing!
How do you meet your practical needs if you follow your heart’s desire?
It should be automatic shouldn’t it?
Let’s see how it goes.

I just singed up in National November Writing Month, and it feels so great to announce a novel in a month! Since I have identified the fear of publishing as one of my biggest ones, let’s see how it goes now that I have taken this step.
So, my novel is starting, a sequel to a previous one, and let’s see how it goes!
I already have a title and I am to write every day. One Month, One Novel.

yes, I know this is the time for the leaves to fall down as winter is coming… but couldn’t we flourish as humans despite this fact?
How can this be possible?
Here is a great idea: November, is a writing month. So, let’s put oneself into this novel again!
it’s a kind of chilly with 8 degrees in London this morning, and I woke faster to get to my new favorite café since my move. So, what are the goals this month?
Act confidence, and submit as many manuscripts as possible, for publication
look confidence, and dress up the part
plan things with friends, beginning from birthday celebration
update for success and see what has worked and what hasn’t in my plans
I think this is enough for now 😉
