An Upside-Down Perspective is a New Perspective!
Are you happy in conflict? Probably not. Few of us are. We get caught up in conflict for a lot of reasons. Our sense of entitlement. Our ego. A set of rules we’ve created that only make sense to us, like “It’s her turn to invite me! He should apologize first! I haven’t done anything wrong!”
So much wasted energy! So much needless anxiety! Wouldn’t you rather be happy than right?
This little tale reminds us that sometimes, looking at the world upside down is worth it.

Live Your Ideal Life Right Now
When the sun isn’t shining, can you dance with circumstances?
When the stock market is plunging, can you still live your dream life?
What if you could live a fulfilling, authentic life while on your way to your ideal life—before the kids go off to university, before you pay off the mortgage, before you land a “real” job? What if you could be happy and peaceful in every moment, starting now?
Master your capacities so that nothing can undermine them. Dance with life no matter what the weatherman forecasts. Who would you be now if you had invested in yourself and hired a life coach and business consultant last year?
