My blog is the place where I share life advice, such as on how to increase confidence and self worth, achieve goals and make life changes, overcome limiting beliefs, and deal with negative emotions like rejection, self doubt, anger... I also share here about my travel experiences, behind the scenes of my life, and life lessons learned - some serious ones, like on fragility of life, purpose, and fulfilment, and some not so serious, but practically valuable - like for example, how Italians sell chillies as "viagra naturale". :-))
Perfectionism is defined as "refusal to accept any standard short of perfection". Perfection is defined as "having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be." Although it may sound like the "roadmap" to success and greatness - perfectionism along with self criticism is one of the most common mindset blocks when it comes to achieving progress in any area of our life. Perfectionism and self-criticism are also one of the major reasons of low self worth and self confidence! In this blog post I have shared my own journey and seven mindset shifts that can help you with overcoming perfectionism and self criticism.
How to increase motivation is the question that I get very often as a life coach. Motivation is defined as "a reason or reasons for acting or behaving in a particular way" as well as "desire or willingness to do something". The keywords that we can pay attention in these definitions are REASON, DESIRE, WILLINGNESS, and TO DO. These are the building block of the motivation - if we are lacking a strong WHY, desire, and willpower we will not feel motivated TO DO the action steps which can help us to achieve our goals. In this blog posts I shared the most common reasons why you may be lacking the motivation and tips how to increase it.
A limiting belief is a false belief about ourselves and about what we are capable of achieving and obtaining in life, that we acquire as a result of making an incorrect conclusion about something in our life. Limiting beliefs can constrain us, crush our self belief, self worth, and self confidence, and make us believe like are not worthy or not capable of having or accomplishing what we want, or becoming the person we want to become.
How to beat procrastination and excuses? "Procrastination is the grave where the opportunity is buried" (unknown proverb). Procrastination, defined as "the action of delaying or postponing something" is one of the most common reasons why people do not achieve their goals, live their dreams, and miss out on the opportunities in life!

"One year from now you may not recognise me. All that happened this year has changed me so much and transformed me into a new person. I have learned valuable life lessons. I no longer force things. I've faced my shadows. I have forgiven. I've realised how strong I am, and witnessed my weaknesses. I have outgrown my old self." In this post, as per our tradition on the blog, I will share with you my year in review and life lessons learned.
In the personal growth community there is a lot of talk at this time of the year about setting goals and achieving things, but since I have been giving the Emotional intelligence workshops I have seen that the "emotions" part is unfortunately and usually out if the equation. All of our decisions are based around our emotions. Everything that we do is either to avoid pain or to experience the pleasure and emotional fulfilment.
Being taken advantage of and being in and out of toxic relationships are very common reasons why my life coaching clients sign up to work with me. Being in a relationships with someone who does not respect, appreciate, and truly care about us, being cheated, lied to, manipulated, and taken advantage of by someone can deeply crush our self worth and self esteem.
Anger is defined as a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility. No wonder why it doesn't feel so good to get angry, or to deal with anger. But, anger IS one of the emotions that we do experience and that we have to deal with in this life. In this blog post I am sharing five tips that can help in dealing with anger.
Self confidence is defined as self-assurance in one's personal ability and power. It is self belief that we are powerful, worthy, strong, capable… enough to achieve our goals and create the life that we desire. In this blog post I wanted to pin point the major reasons why women in general lack self confidence and give some helpful tips how to build it.
Self empowerment is the topic of workshops I was giving to female managers in Delhi in India in Fortune 500 companies. In this post I will give some valuable self empowerment tips that can help you in overcoming self doubt and imposter syndrome and believing in yourself.
It really made me think how life is unpredictable and how we may take it for granted at times. We postpone our dreams and goals for "someday". We fantasise about the future instead of creating a beautiful present and enjoying the now. We hold anger and grudges for what someone has done to us in the past. We live life like on autopilot instead of living our every day infused with joy and fulfilment...
Increasing self worth is I believe the most important inner work that we need to do in order to boost our confidence and self esteem, love ourselves more, and have healthy relationships. In this blog post I have shared seven tips that can help you in increasing self worth that I have found helpful in my own crushed self worth healing journey

Setting goals is really important, and at this time of the year, statistics are showing that more than 50% of people over the globe are making New Year’s Resolutions. But, there is another sad statistics: only about 8% of people actually achieve their goals by the end of the year. Other 92% set the same New Year resolutions in December next year, sometimes year after year! In the life coaching world, we call them “recycled New Years resolutions”.
