Life Coaching 103: How to Turn Your Dreams Into Reality?

Life is full of chances, and you do not live if you don't take chances.As I'm writing this blog post, I'm here sitting at a busy fitness club sipping a free brewed coffee I've got from the club's beverage counter.  It's early Wednesday morning, and as I've expected the crowd is fewer as compared to the afternoon sessions. Most are old people that can be my parents and grandparents who are probably now enjoying their retirement life aiming to recover their health that was worn out in their adult working years.  And as I continue sipping my coffee and observing, I felt happy and smiled.

Those who spend everything today ends up with so many problem and misery in the future.Take for an instance:Spenders who work to earn money then spend their whole salary worth (even beyond) during pay days.Those who spend life without thinking about future rainy days are faced with future problems such as financial incapacity, ill-health, broken relationships and losing personal value or direction. Because they didn't save and prepare for tomorrow's rainy days, in the future, they always ends up flooded with anxieties of their past choices and … [Read more...]
