Being Alone Is Bad For Your Health

By Ange Fonce


As a personal development coach, the issue of loneliness is one that comes up a lot.

The only remedy is a combination of getting out there, facing your fears, talking to new people, building memories, having adventures and cultivating friendships.

That said, we do not often talk about the subject of loneliness in detail. So, let us stop ignoring this issue and take it on.

It is a strange time in our culture. We have more convenience and more material wealth any people ever in history, yet we have fewer and fewer close relationships.

People at large are going out less and less.

Amazon has made it so that you no longer need to go to a bookstore or even the grocery store to get what you need.

Fast food chains that deliver to your door are posting record profits, while mum and dad diners are going out of business.

At the same time, many of the traditional social networks that existed in the past where you might find...

I Was The Biggest Failure I Knew By Ange Fonce





I Was The Biggest Failure I Knew


By Ange Fonce


Jo first experienced failure in 1982...

When, at the age of 17, she took the entrance exams for Oxford University and got rejected.

Undeterred she applied to other universities and eventually got accepted in to Exeter, to study Languages and The Classics.

You see, she desperately wanted a career as a novelist (much to the dismay of her parents, who worried that writing would never pay the bills). And, despite her desire for a career in writing, she did not excel in her studies - leaving with a mediocre 2:2 degree. After university Jo flitted from temp job to temp job – not achieving success with any company.

She did not mind...

She still dreamed of becoming a writer and already had an idea for the book that would, one day, bring her huge success.

And that’s when the problems started... Jo had only just begun writing her book when her life started to fall apart... The long-term relationship she was in failed and she...

Positive Ways You Can Handle Rejection? By Ange Fonce





Positive Ways You Can Handle Rejection?

By Ange Fonce


We have all experienced rejection in one way or another and if your own parent rejects you, then who would LOVE YOU or accept you?

At least that is what goes on in the nonconscious part of the mind. As a child, you learned to react when you felt the pain of rejection (even not getting what you needed or wanted right away was a type of rejection for you).

"Not now"...

"Don't bother me"...

"I said NO!"...

"Don't do that again"...





Acceptance and Early Human Survival Roots


Long ago, people lived in communities in which they depended on each other for survival.

Together they would:

Hunt...

Gather food...

Raise Children...

Fight off danger...

Take care of each other's needs...

Together, they gained strength from day-to-day interaction and they became dependent on each other for their very survival.

Being INCLUDED, being ACCEPTED was necessary to surviveand that Genetic Code is still written...

Leadership And The Power Of Your Word By Ange Fonce





Leadership And The Power Of Your Word

By Ange Fonce


We are all leaders.

Leaders of our destiny, families, jobs, and social circles.

And it is our obligation to be the best leader possible.

So many people have been conditioned by society to be lazy sheep, and technology, and an easy, comfortable life, has automated people's thinking and the way they lead their lives.

And there is a major misconception about leadership.

It is not about superiority, authority, or control - and instead, the power of your word to inspire, lead, and serve.

Being a leader is about having a vision for the creation of a better future, and inspiring others to help you reach that vision.




A Good Leader See’s Every Task To The End


How you do anything, is how you do everything.

It is about the POWER and VALUE of YOUR WORD!

A good leader sets a vision, determines what needs to be done to achieve that vision, and executes until the end. The big test is if you can stay...

When He Pulls Away Do Not Do This By Ange Fonce





When He Pulls Away Do Not Do This

By Ange Fonce


I wanted to start this article with an email I recieved from a long term reader and for you to see her question...

Hi Ange.

I have many of your articles about mistakes in relationships and I have to admit I cried. You are totally right!

Why?

Because I recently started spending a lot of time with a guy I used to know. We had an instant connection and he was exactly as you said: affectionate at first, initiating plans etc, then I made not one mistake but ALL of those you mentioned in your email, and as you said.... he pulled away big time.

The attraction's gone for him now. What I want to know is, is there any way I can reverse the damage I have caused? Can I get my friendship with him back on track? Is it possible he may learn to feel again what he once felt for me? Please help. I'm at my wits end and I really do miss having him in my life. I would be grateful for any advice you could give me on this matter.
