People often think that it is difficult to say No when
needed and I agree, it is something that we need to practice on in order to
master. However, it is not always easy to accept challenges either – especially
when it’s requiring taking responsi

Two years ago this week, I started this blog.
Due to a
thirst for inspiration, I decided to start a blog that would inspire many
people (including me) to dare to succeed.
I met many amazing people both online and in Real Life who s

Now, when we stand upon the beginning of a new year
let’s take this opportunity to evaluate how we did under 2012 and to set the
goals we would like to achieve at 2013.
For my part, 2012 was a great year. Although it

Life should be a journey of us becoming better and
better, achieving goals and finding our destination.
It is very important that we don’t compare ourselves
to others nor compete with them on our road to success – on the other hand, we
should continue comparing ourselves with who we were in the past in order to
It is common to think that when we get our formal
education and experience in our work field that would be enough for our
development. But if we don’t learn [..]

Nowadays the employment market is getting more and more related to social media platforms. If before about 80% of the jobs were appointed with the help of relatives and friends – now a big share in moving towards social networks as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter – and you don’t want to be left behind!
In order to get the right job for you quickly it is good to use all the recruitment channels that you can. One of the best tools to keep in touch with your contacts and to meet new people who [..]

In my life, I managed to get everything that I was truly determined to get. Many people may assume that this depends on luck or that I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth but this is very far away from reality.
The reasons why I got everything that I really wanted are my true determination, hard work, the fact that I never give up together with some talent.

I live in a very quiet suburb, called Bro, which is located north of Stockholm, Sweden. Normally, not so much in happening here in Bro. There is a small Centre, not so many companies, a train station and a lot of nature.
Not so many people are visiting my city on a regular day; people who live here are travelling to and from their working-places in Stockholm and enjoy quiet evenings and weekends in the country-side.
But for a few days each year my hometown becomes the centre of attention for [..]

Well, we’ve all been there, the first day at a new working-place, in some way it reminds us about the first day at school – very excited, a bit nervous and filled with hope.
I guess that the butterflies will always be there on the first day of work, but there are ways to make the first days more efficient and successful at the same time as you manage to make an impression and show your strong sides.
This is actually the reason why I haven’t been so active online and on this blog in the la [..]

Last week I participated in a very important and inspiring event in Stockholm – Egoobost magazine’s Size-me event. The goal of this event was to urge young women to focus on the inside instead of aiming to look as the common beauty ideal.
Egoobost is a Magazine targeted for young women and is focusing on issues as career development, education and self-esteem. The magazine was established by a very famous Swedish blogger, Isabella Löwengrip- Blondinbella who is only 21 year old and managed [..]

Every Tuesday, she releases a new inspiring video with wise advices.

Gabby says that if you’re struggling to get something in life — from career goals to relationships, health or happiness — the REAL work is an inside job.
Below are Gabby Bernstein’s 3 important manifesting steps which you can take immediately to get anything you want:

Many years ago, I had a bad experience that taught me a lesson when looking for a new job and I hope that it could help others not to make the same mistake that I did without experiencing it on their own.
I got a very interesting and exciting job – or at least according to the title and I was very happy to get such an opportunity while studying to my Master degree - to be able to work on a 50% basis when studying full time.
The only problem was that my employer decided to hire me due to the g [..]

Together we are much stronger than

is much easier to go through a tough process if we can share it together with
others – so why not doing the same when we are looking for a new job?!

This post in dedicated and inspired by my son Kevin who is 8 years old. Sometimes, we as parents should also listen to our children and their wisdom.
Kevin, like me, used to be quite shy when he was a small child; he was always observing from a distance in order to see what is going on in his kindergarten and didn’t stand tall. Today, while talking with other parents, I realised that he made a huge progress to the confident boy he is today!

To be completely honest or not, it is a life-dilemma! In many cases it is difficult to know if to tell the whole truth… or to leave some of it untold.
I consider myself to be a very honest person but at the same time I’m diplomatic and try to do my best not to hurt others. In many cases in my life I was reminded that telling the whole truth, even though it is a truth that is hard to face, could be the right thing to do.
When other people feel like you are hiding something, they could expect [..]

For me, the role of a leader or a manager needs to be taken for the right reasons.It is unfortunate that many people want to lead for the wrong reasons and that they might be motivated by money or power.
You can find examples for that all over the news – people who are using their position of power for doing immoral things and it is something that we all need to work against in order to make our organisations a better place to work in.
If you want to advance in your career and take a leading r [..]

For me, working partly from home is a great opportunity to work efficiently while focusing on work at the same time as I don’t need to travel to a distanced working-place.
I have tried this a few times and I think that it is a great way to give 110% to the work tasks while you are alert and in a good mood since you don’t have to use public transportation or to travel very early to get to work on time.
The key to success while working from home is to stay focused and self-motivated. Some [..]

Last week was a luxury time for me - my husband and son were skiing in the north of Sweden and I had a week to spend on my own – with time to re-charge my batteries, to meet friends, to read a book and to think about my future.
Even though many people don’t understand why I enjoy being on my own sometimes I think that it is a great opportunity for each and everyone of us to take it slowly for a while, to analyze our current situation, plan our next steps while we get more energy to perform t [..]

On Saturday February 11th, the world lost a special person who managed to reach tremendous success, to fall, to be a role model and an anti-hero all in her short life-time.
Whitney Houston was a person who managed to inspire us at a young age and to give us an example on how to live and what to avoid doing in our lives. Her last years were tragic so I would like to remember her as she was at the beginning of her career when she was a true role-model for me and I was truly inspired by her songs [..]

Life is not like a bed of roses rather that a dance of Tango. It is easier to think that if you have a goal - you will move forward in a straight line, but in most cases the situation looks much different.
It is more likely that when our lives develop, we will take a few steps forward following by a step backwards, and in some cases a step sideways.
Once we realise that it is a common way of development we should embrace the deviation to get the needed energy, to plan our next moves and to lea [..]

If we want to succeed in climbing the career ladder we need to start from within – having a strong character and a healthy body would help us with our quest.

Luckily, I learned this lesson at my first attempt to find a job. It is quite a simple lesson but should not be taken for granted.
After finishing high school and before joining the army, I had more than half a year to do as I wish. I still lived at my parents’ home and had no financial stress or worries but I wanted to work, to get experience, to take challenges at the same time as I get some pocket money.

First of all, I must admit that I’m not too much into New Year’s resolutions in general since normally the focus is on very shallow wishes that regard to our appearance or other declarations where we promise to make a 180 degrees change from a specific date.
