  • 1st Step: Cancel negative emotions

    You cannot experience joy if you focus onsadness or anger;

    Being stressed, anxious and worried takesyour energy away;

    Recognize them and let them go!

  • 2nd Step: Love yourself

    Make an effort to identify all your positiveaspects

    Tell yourself how good you are at the thingsyou are good at

    Remember to appreciate each one of yoursuccesses

  • 3rd Step: Expressing joy

    Breathe deeply and connect with your positiveaspects;

    Feel the pleasure of having them; Let yourself go, do something spontaneous,

    silly and completely creative; Just for the heck of it, there doesnt have to

    be a reason, only because you are alive!

  • 4th Step: Let it go

    Remember to laugh at the world, andyourself;

    Let the little things drop away; And create small joys each day; Find the fun in your own mistake, and forgive

    yourself Even better, congratulate yourself for the

    learning involved in your mistakes!

  • Testimonial from an abused wife

    "I wish I had know from the beginning what I know now. I feel thingswould have been so different, and I would been spared the amount ofpain, drama and humiliation I suffered in my married life, since accordingto him: "everything was my fault, of course.

    I was a perfect personality type to be the victim of an aggressiveboyfriend, as my mother and other relatives were too in my childhood.Ironically, this has been the cause of my painful inability to establish apositive self-esteem and find happiness in my life. I feel so blessed to havefound your help.

    Nora, you are a great coach. I now have permission to fight back! Theawareness you have given me has changed my life. I am no longer a victimof other peoples aggressive behaviors, and it feels wonderful!"

  • Testimonial from a person lacking self-respect

    I was in a miserable situation. I never understood what I did todeserve being yelled at by my husband and made fun of when hewas drinking with his friends.

    I would make myself sick from crying; both my body and heart weretired and I was completely unhappy.

    I didnt understand that I had an obligation to myself to stand up andsay NO to this behavior in my husband and by any other person.

    Nora, you gave me the right to defend myself with grace. Now, hesactually apologizing to me and being gentler and attentive!
