The blog was created because almost everyone wants to be better, do better, achieve more. All real change comes within but many of us don’t know where to find the information or guidance we need to make the changes that bring about the improvement. And most of us don’t know how to work “within.”
Hi! I’m Irene and I’m serious about helping you find the tools you need to achieve your self improvement goals and begin to experience the happiness you desire.
I have a masters degree in nursing and a doctoral degree in metaphysics – yes, metaphysics. I have taught nursing at ASU, served as Administrator of Nursing at a major Phoenix hospital, and served as Assistant Director in the Arizona Department of Health Services. I am a certified hypnotherapist and had my own therapy practice, The PowerZone, twelve years. I am an ordained minister and have performed several hundred weddings. Currently I host the Self Improvement Show on VoiceAmerica/World Talk Radio.
I have two sons, Chris and Kevin, and three grandsons – Kyle, Aaron and Jack – who are the loves of my life.
We are living in a stressful world. We rush to work, rush to the store, rush home, rush to appointments, rush to get our kids to soccer practice, ballet, gymnastics, school or the mall. We can be found 24/7 by email, cell phone, or pager so there’s no way we can “get away.” We are stretched to the max and wonder why we can’t sleep, can’t think, amd can’t relax. We are enticed by drugs, alcohol and sex to give us an outlet or deal with the stress and many choose to use them. Some rage. Some over-exercise, Some go out and shoot other people.
In this frenetic activity there is one constant – we are each looking for happiness. Ask the addict, the thief, the anorexic, the debutante, the CEO, the mail room clerk the person you meet on the street or in the grocery store – ask them what they want – bottom line. They will, if they can verbalize it, tell you what they truly want is happiness.
This blog is about helping you find the tools you need to make those changes within yourself to find your happiness.
What good is self improvement effort if it makes you even more miserable?
If you are truly happy, how much self improvement do you need?
So my question is – What do YOU want to change? How do YOU want to improve? What does happiness look and feel like to you ?
