Where focus goes energy flows

If you don’t know it already, thoughts are energy. As simple as it may seem it is not always easy for the human brain to understand. We think to much! Always worried about things that are not going to happen, or what the future might or might not bring, being sad or angry about the past. The mind just cannot sit still sometimes and our FOCUS goes into a very wrong direction. Trust me, I’m telling you this from experience. If over-thinking was a competition, I will be the one winning the prize over and over again.

However, thanks to the books that I have been reading over the years and the seminars I went to and the video’s I have been watching on YouTube, I can understand a bit more about energy and thoughts. The mind is hungry for negative thoughts and feelings, it is being fed that way and it will continue if you don’t know how to give it a good meal!

If you want to change your circumstances start with one simple thing…FOCUS. If you do not know where you are focusing on look at where you are now in life.

  • Are you happy (most important question) ?
  • Are you healthy ?
  • Do you love your job (99% will say no) ?
  • Have you created (or on your way) of creating the abundance you desire?
  • Do you like the people you hang out with ?
  • What is your first thought when you wake up and the last one when you go to sleep?

You can ask yourself whatever you want, what is your current situation now and are you happy with it. If not, then you know what you are focusing on… not the things you want to attract in your life.

You see, the energy you are attracting in your life HAS to match your focus. NO EXCEPTIONS… trust me😉.

Change your focus and you will change the energy coming into your life ..and thennn ….the results that you want to see in your life will flow just like a river.. so calm and peaceful… hmm that’s a nice feeling.

Spend your money wisely

I received a very nice message from a dear friend yesterday, I thought it was definitely worth sharing it with all of you. Maybe this could even be one of your goals for 2016…

An interesting perspective – I never really looked at it this way –

Imagine that you had won the following PRIZE in a contest: Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use.  However, this prize has rules:

The set of rules:

  1. Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.

  2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.

  3. You may only spend it.

  4. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.

  5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say,“Game Over!”. It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right?

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?


Shocked ??? YES!

Each of us is already a winner of this PRIZE. We just can’t seem to see it.


  1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds
    as a gift of life.

  2. And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is Not credited to us.

  3. What we haven’t used up that day is forever lost.

  4. Yesterday is forever gone.

  5. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING…

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars.  Think about it and remember to seek blessings & happiness every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.

So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply and enjoy life!

Here’s wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day. Start “spending”….



I was born in Baghdad

As an Arab woman and a few years over the age of 25, I get the questions “shouldn’t you be married right now”, “why are you not married”, “Do your parents try to force you into marriage”, “Must be hard for you to be who you want to be”.

I think that the previous generations and the culture created an image of a woman that has by far changed over the last decades.

First of all, I do not think that marriage is a priority in my life. I love my life the way it is now, I have great career opportunities, I am an adventurous type of woman and I do not feel less Arab because I do not have a ring on my finger. Unfortunately, the society has not seen all the great Arab women out there that are actually doing great things.

Yes, my parents are Muslim, yes they are very into our Iraqi cultural, yes of course they would be happy if I found my perfect husband and yes they have many rules that I had to live by. But it doesn’t mean that they will never stand behind me when they see that my happiness is not quit similar to what they had in mind for me.

I moved to Australia, and they were not very happy about it, yet I am here and they are very proud of me.

I ran marathons that were in other countries and I traveled alone, yet they did let me go and I know they always thought that I might not make it. They still supported me.

I am  not married yet, and they wish I was with someone right now, yet they are still happy that I am enjoying my life with or without a partner. And although they keep asking if I met someone, they will never force me into marriage.

My parents think that education is very important, they think exercising is absolutely a must in someones’ life. My mom always told me to never let a man raise his hands or voice towards me. My dad always treated me with lots of care and love, and he listened and gave me advise whenever I felt upset.

Yes, I was born  in Baghdad and I come from an Islamic family. And I live my life the way I wish to, because I believe that Arab women are capable of doing great things in this world. And I can already see the evidence in my life.

How I got my job in Sydney

G’day mates!

How ya going?! Omg, my mind starts speaking with an Australian accent, but when I open my mouth it just sounds like a Dutch accent to me. Anyways, that doesn’t matter, people seem to like my accent here, and they like me also haha😉.

Lovely, amazing, great, beautiful Australia! What a great feeling, knowing that I took the right decision 3 months ago. And because I wanted to be here so bad I had to try everything I can to get a job! And this is how I did it.

First of all I send 100+ job applications! Changing cover letters every single time, checking the email address, checking the names, put it all in one excel sheet, call them after a week. I did all I can do to get a job. I HAD TO GET A JOB, THERE IS NO OTHER OPTION.

And then I started thinking, how can I stand out, how can I send my application and make it look different, make it to the job interview, or even making them wanting to open the email that I’ve sent!

So I recorded a video and I just explained why I should be hired, why me, and what I am capable of doing.

  1. Bought a domain name (my own name)
  2. Asked help from a friend who can build websites
  3. Posted my CV
  4. Posted my video
  5. Sent out to 100+ companies

There was this one company who insisted on hiring me and paying me a fixed salary while the rest of the employees worked on a commission based salary. Just because of my idea.

So I would recommend to take out your creativity and start working with it. You can do what I do, or you can try something totally different. As long as you are standing out of the crowd you will be NOTICED.

Good luck!

I can’t afford that

It’s already the end of September and I CAN NOT believe that the time flew by so quickly. It felt like everything went so slow but then I realized just this morning that we only have 3 months left of this amazing year 2015.

And then I became aware that I can’t afford losing my feelings and thoughts and days and time and everything I own on the things I do not want and on the negativity that people bring. I can not feel bad or feel sick when I have A CHOICE that I can feel good! And I ABSOLUTELY can not afford a day without reading something that will inspire, motivate, and or help me to grow.

With that being said, I also realized that I can not afford another day, week, month or year just planning things and not taking actual actions. And all of this came to me this morning while I was on the train going to work, when I realized that it was the 30th of September and what have I reached so far.

I am a goal freak, and not seeing myself growing and moving forward can drive me crazy. And I hope that everyone of you has the same thing. So here is another amazing thing that you and I can do to finish this year with a full feeling of satisfaction.

3 months goal list!

What have you done so far? Where are you now? What do you still have on your goal list that is a MUST for 2015? How can you get there? Make a plan and make it WORK! Even if you will not achieve as much as you wished for, you can at least take action, and who knows 2016 might be an AMAAAAAAZING start for you.

Don’t forget to reflect on what you have reached so far. I am so proud of myself by what I have done this year, and it has by far exceeded my expectations.

Good luck!
