10 Simple Ways to Spice Up a Stale Relationship on thebridalbox.com

Over the years, I’ve worked with countless clients who looked like they “had it all” from the outside: fulfilling careers, comfortable lives, and beautiful families.

Yet after just a few minutes of speaking with them, they’d often confess that something BIG was missing from their lives. Despite their success, they found themselves struggling to connect with their long-term partners.

And every time I meet someone who’s run into this kind of roadblock in their relationship, I think back to something that happened to me many years ago.


Is It “Unspiritual” to Love Money?

Is it wrong to love money? Does loving money make you a less spiritual person?

I used to think so… until an evening in an auditorium changed everything.

It started with a speech that initially shocked and offended me

I’d been studying transformational principles of success since 1971, and one of my most pivotal learning experiences came very soon after I’d started.

That year, I traveled across the country to listen to a man speak.

He was highly successful, to the point where he was filling Lincoln Hall every week in New York City, while teaching people how to transform their lives.


You Were Born to Be Happy, Not Perfect

“One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect. Perfection simply doesn’t exist. Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist.”

~Stephen Hawking, Physicist

So many of us strive for perfection in our daily lives.

In the media and all around us, we are continually exposed to images of the perfect body, the perfect family, the perfect career, the perfect life and the perfect home.

The pressure to be perfect can sometimes feel overwhelming, and this can cause us to make an enormous effort to ensure that nobody finds out what’s really going on “behind the scenes” of our life.


Are You “Pretending,” Just So That Others Will Like You? Here’s My Story…

Have you ever found yourself pretending to be someone you’re not in front of someone you wanted to impress, only to have it backfire on you in the end?


Are You Pretending so others like you?

So often, we pretend to be someone we’re not around people whose approval we crave, instead of being authentic.

We may stifle our true feelings, and not express ourselves fully, in order to gain love, respect or acceptance from friends, family, colleagues or clients — and sometimes, even total strangers.


The Power of Writing Down Your Goals & Dreams

Do you write down your goals and dreams on a regular basis? Or do you simply think about them, without actually recording them anywhere?

As it turns out, your answer to this question has a HUGE impact on your odds of transforming whatever it is you desire to be, do, have or give into your reality.

Why is the power of writing down your goals so important?


We Live in a Giving Universe

Albert Einstein once said, “The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile Universe.”

Deep down, we have all made a decision about what kind of Universe we live in, and our life reflects that.

Do you believe that the Universe is for you, or against you?

This is an important question, because the frequency of your thoughts determines the type of life you’re going to have, so it’s vital to keep your vibrational thoughts in alignment with the life you desire.


What a Conversation with Nelson Mandela Taught Me About Finding Purpose Amidst Suffering

find purpose among suffering

Many times, I’ve been asked why bad things happen to good people.

What purpose does pain and suffering serve… and does it come into our lives because we deserve it on some level?

Whatever form the question takes, the answer is nearly always the same:

Not one of us deserves to suffer, but suffering can be a doorway that allows us to step into a fuller, freer, more expansive version of ourselves.

Keep reading to discover how an extraordinary man overcame incredible odds, and changed not only his own life, but that of an entire nation — and how you can apply his transformational principles to start finding purpose and create a life you truly love living.


Who Is In Your Positive Circle of Influence?

Entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker, Jim Rohn, once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

I invite you to pause for a moment to absorb the significance of that statement.

Next, think about the five people with whom you spend most of your time.

If you combine the annual income of those five people and divide it by five, chances are this is approximately the same amount of income that you earn.

Those of us who’ve studied the art and science of transformation, including Jim Rohn, understand that it’s extremely important to surround yourself with positive influences when you are pursuing your dreams.


Do You Let Your Circumstances and Conditions Stop You? Or Do You Embrace Growth?

embrace growth

One of my core teachings is that growth is a personal choice.

Each one of us is stronger than any circumstance, condition or situation that we find ourselves in.

As we reflect on our lives, if we determine that we are unhappy with some aspect of it, the area that we experience longing or discontent in is an area that’s ripe for growth.

I recently received a letter from a client named Lisa that illustrates this point so beautifully.

    I agree with your points that events are not failures – they are feedback and learning tools. I prefer this word: mis-takes. So much nicer and probably more real.

    Hi Mary, thank you for your inspirational emails. I’ve just been reading about turning failure into success and it has rung a bell in my head. I am teaching yr 12 high school students who are going into their final few months before leaving. Some are fine but others are terrified of failure and are procrastinating and falling behind. I am going to start my lesson with them tomorrow by talking about thinking of failure as feedback. How it alerts us to something that needs our attention and that this knowledge is a gift towards success. That is a powerful thought that I know my students will respond to as it gives them hope and a starting point.

    Thank you!
    Best regards
