Success Self Help


A difficult word to tie down. It means something different to almost every individual on the planet. And it means different things to the same person at different times.

But one thing is common for all. It is a mindset. The determination to do whatever it is that will give you the feeling of achievement.

Some people have more of it in life than others. Some people equate it only with financial gain. Others achieve everything they want in life without earning a penny.

What is the difference between the person who has gained this elusive quality and the one who has not?

People Skills: How to Like and be Liked

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out. Anon

People Skills:

The basic key is to just be friendly! No mystery, but also no hidden agenda, no hooks and barbs.

We all are drawn to people who like us. There may be some people who like us who we don’t like in return. But on the other hand, it’s hard to like someone if they don’t seem to like you.

Some people just naturally make others feel liked and appreciated.

Conventional or Enterprising: which are you?

I was watching the Wheel of Fortune recently.  I love the short chat-break between Pat Sajak and Vana White at the end of the show.

Pat is funny, but what I enjoy is Vana’s ‘down home” personality.  Here is a woman who wears more glamorous dresses than almost anyone else on the planet, and she talks quite happily about her vegetable garden and the like!

What got my attention in this particular episode was Vana telling everyone that monkeys eat bananas by peeling them from the other end, and how much easier that is than the way we normally peel them.


(I gave it a shot and she’s right!)

That got me to thinking about people who prefer to do things in the conventional, established way as opposed to those who really enjoy finding out things like peeling bananas from the opposite end (obviously I am one of them).

Here is how Conventional vs Enterprising shows in your handwriting. Continue reading

Procrastination really is…

It is unlikely that when you procrastinate you are doing completely nothing.

So you are doing something.

So how can you be procrastinating?

The answer is obvious.

You are procrastinating because you are doing something else, something that is not so urgent or important as the thing you are putting off.

Sometimes we can convince ourselves that this other something is more important.  Or we tell ourselves the important thing is not really so important, or that we will have plenty of time to get it done later when in fact this is not the case. Continue reading

Procrastination: How to identify it and how to stop it

Webster’s Dictionary describes procrastination as “to put off doing something that should be done, dawdle, delay.”

In handwriting there is a trait called procrastination, that means just that: to put off, dawdle or delay.  But it is not the only trait that illustrates this behavior.

That is one of the amazing (and useful) things about handwriting analysis, that is can show you, with a clarity that nothing else I know of can, from there the behavior originates and what is the underlying cause.

Here are eight other traits that can hold you back and “masquerade” as procrastination. Continue reading

Printing or script: what does it say about me?

“I write with a mixture of printing and joined-up writing. What does that mean?”

I hear that question so often after I have made a presentation on handwriting analysis to a group.

People always seem to assume it’s something negative, but it’s not…  In fact it’s a really useful ability to have.  With other positive attributes, it can become a real gift. Continue reading

Enthusiasm: Start an Epidemic

Enthusiasm is contagious.  You can start an epidemic

This is an anonymous quote I found today, and I love it!

Yes, you might even say I am enthusiastic about it.

Another quote I found that can help you be enthusiastic if you are not already so is:

If you want to be happy, act happy.

(also anonymous)

It may come as a surprise to you to hear that your handwriting can be the tool that enables you to develop and grow your enthusiasm and create happiness. Continue reading

Worry and Blame. Stop them in their tracks.

Are you a worrier?  Do you blame yourself unnecessarily?

Self blame.  It can be so much tougher than blame from any other source. Worry can take over your life if you let it.

Here is quote I found recently, by Louise Hay:

“You have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”…

Here is how your handwriting can help… Continue reading
