It's a new year and with that in mind, I'm going to discuss some ways to get yourself motivated to reach your goals and aspirations for 2017.

Are you tired of living the life you currently have?  Do you want more out of life?  Are you looking for a new job, lover, husband, wife, soul mate?

What are you willing to sacrifice to make the necessary adjustments and changes you'll need to get what you want in 2017? 

Do you know what you want?  Or, do you just have an inkling as to what you think you might want?  Do you know how you're going to get it?

Check out some ways you can use persistence when it comes time to reaching your goals.  These tips will definitely help you get to where you're looking to go.

Well, grab a pen and paper and take a listen.  Take as many notes as you feel necessary.  Now let's get moving!  Have a very happy and successful 2017!


Live Successfully, Happily & Lovingly,

LNNL EP#012 - Silence Is Truly Golden -  Listen and Learn

Today's episode will be a short one, but, a very important one.  It's about questioning yourself on how you feel when you are surrounded in silence?  Do you feel uneasy?  Do you feel like running out of the room like it was on fire? 

Silence is the only place you can go to where you can hear your inner thoughts, desires and dreams.

So, take a listen and let me know in the comments below if you have any issues being in silence, or crave it, or how it might have helped you with a problem.

Live Successfully, lovingly and happily,

LNNL EP#011 - How Can You Get What You Want if You Don't Ask For It?

One of the hardest things for me growing up was to ask for what I wanted.  Even if someone asked me what I wanted, I was often vague and a bit squeamish trying to articulate what it was that I wanted.  Until, one day, as I was reading a book, (I don't recall which one it was) and it read "do you ask for what you want?".  I thought about that question for some time and realized I truly didn't.

As the time went on, I slowly began asking for what I wanted and was in awe of the great responses I'd receive.  I seemed to get more Yes' than no's. 

Today's episode is a quick but important one to help you reach your goals and strive to fulfill your dreams.  So take a listen and begin to ask for what you want.  If you don't ask for what you want, guess what happens?  You'll never get it!!!  So, today's episode is to make you ponder the question:  Do I ask for what I want? 

Take a listen, and get determined to start asking for what you want, you'll be amazed and what happens.

If you like this episode, please share the love, subscribe and please leave me a comment to let me know how this affects your life and if it makes a difference in it.

Live happily, lovingly, peacefully and successfully,

LNNL EP#010 - See The World and Let Your Dreams Come True

Are you one of those people who love to travel?  Or, are you someone who still has a bucket list of places you'd like to visit?  Either way, travel is an amazing way to learn and grow.  Unfortunately, it has become much more expensive and definitely not as much fun as it used to be (getting there that is). 

I've been an outside travel agent for more than 25 years.  And it's getting harder and harder to find great deals in travel.

Today's episode I give you 10 quick tips on ways to save money when booking your travel.

Enjoy,  I hope you visit many beautiful places and your travel dreams come true.

Bon Voyage,

Dawn-Marie Mutell
