“What are we passionate about? What brings us Joy? What is going to make us happy? …So for all of us the answers will be different. …I am very strong on the side of giving people the opportunity to look at and list what they are up against and take that into account when they set their goals. …Some people will give up – they take what they have got as their lot in life. – Rather than paint the picture as an all or nothing, you know ‘I failed’ or ‘there must be something wrong with me’ is to do a clinical diagnostic: ‘what about this still matters to me; what really went wrong here; was there something I could have done differently’. …You are not doing this to beat up on yourself, but so that you can learn something. Look at this as a source of information. …I try to eliminate the word balance because it feels like we are taking time away from something in order to do something else. …Instead it should be more prioritizing what is most important to you right now; where we want to allocate the time that we have.”
Today’s quote originates from the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio episode that aired back on … titled: Reaching for RealisticGoals

Janis Friesler notified me of this resource - AssistingAuthors.com - where an author can send her a jpg of the book cover, their Amazon sales page link, the genre, and the website or blog link, and she will promote the book on the page for no cost. The only thing they need to do is if anyone requests to review their book, they must choose any book from the page that interests them and review that book, putting the review on Amazon and Goodreads. So it acts like a hub for authors to do cross promotions and cross book review projects. The advantage of all this is that the authors receive established backlinks to their site, which will help with their Search Engine rankings. The authors can use the published reviews or cross promotions as fodder for their social networking and blog posts as well.
This organization offers self-funding volunteers a unique opportunity to work abroad at leading wildlife conservation, rehabilitation and research programs in South Africa and Namibia.
