    Jung, Shadows and Your Potential

    By Oct 17,2019

    Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. At all counts, it forms an unconscious snag, thwarting our most well-meant intentions. — Dr. Carl G. Jung In 2006, Ted Haggard was considered one of the most famous Christian conservatives. He also had great political power and advised the President and other politicians. Millions watched him as an exemplar of the values of the Christian right. In November of 2006, however, this all came crashing down when a male prostitute...

    Socrates and Your Job Search

    By Aug 07,2019

    Several years ago, we were launching a newsletter for law schools. One of our employees, who was working on the project, decided that the title of the newsletter should be, “The Signal.” He was very enthusiastic about this particular title. In fact, I had never seen him so enthusiastic about anything. The problem with this name was that the domain name for it had been taken long ago and I seem to remember that the person who owned the domain name had no interest in selling it.

    Be Proactive in Business and in Your Job Search

    By Sep 27,2019

    The gloomy estimates you’ve heard about business failures are not exaggerated. As many as half of all small businesses launched in the United States this year will not be around by the end of next year. These businesses will remain as little more than painful memories in the minds of the people who launched them. The big question is why do so many businesses fail?

    Awaken Your Spirit

    By Oct 16,2019

    The most productive state you can be in is when you are “awakened” in a way that drives you toward a goal with an almost unstoppable “fire in the belly.” People who experience this awakening have an enthusiasm within them that moves them in an almost spiritual way toward achieving certain results in their lives. The energy is spiritual and religious. The energy is sexual. The energy is physical. The energy is mental. The energy gives a higher state of consciousness. The energy is metaphysical. The energy is bioenergetic. The energy is...
