Too ambitious? It’s never a bad thing! Unless…

  I am a very ambitious person, always ready for new chapters in my life, ready to change the world and make the big things happen.   What If sometimes ambitions make life a bit more complicated? That what happens with me sometimes. I have so many dreams and goals as well as “I want this”,  “I want to achieve that”, etc., that I become anxious and nervous.   The question I ask myself quite often is – How to be patient then? My ambitions can be my own enemy from time to time.   Time flies too fast and I want too many things to happen now! Not tomorrow, not in a week, but now. Or when I set up some of the goals, I want to achieve them with not very realistic deadlines. Especially when I find myself looking at someone’s social media.. oh that’s a trap! Everything seems to be too easy for the others. And it looks like …

My 2018 achievements

New Year is here! Time to look back to 2018 and get those positive reinforcements for yourself and appreciate all the achievements I had. I suggest you do the same because as we discussed it earlier, it will help you a lot to get closer to Your goals and get lots of things done! Let’s go! 1. Joined Elements Community school and by Feb. 2018 there was a first dance competition I had in the Czech Republic in 2018. Overall, moving to next months from that point, we did get silver and gold medals on several competitions and were very close to going to the European championship. We didn’t get there, but our crew was strong and oh my god it was such an amazing atmosphere! 2. Teaching high heels in Prague for adult beginners. This is a fascinating experience I must say! I did teach before but mostly kids and now I had my own class for adults. And …

Traveling with a hedgehog to the UK.

We just went through a fascinating trip from Prague (CZ) to Mildenhall (UK).    I. Why did we need to travel with her?   This idea of relocating my hedgehog came from my travelling to the UK for a month to visit my fiancee during Christmas, New Year’s and his Birthday.  Leaving for the whole month is different from just a short holiday away from hedgie. A lot of friends are leaving Prague, but there was an option of leaving her with a pet sitter. However, I dropped that idea. It’s not the best option to leave such a fragile animal with a pet sitter for quite a long time. So, I had only one option really – to travel with a hedgehog.   II. Creating the perfect route.   What I did at first was contacting all the airlines flying from Prague to Stansted (London). None of them accepted hedgehogs on board, only in a luggage boot. But imagine, a …

Get over your hard times and get your life back on track

  We get insanely upset and devastated when life shoots us in the face with something very unexpected (in a negative way). Any examples? We all have been there – lost the job, broke up with boyfriend/girlfriend, broke an expensive phone, lost investments, so on and so forth.   The most interesting thing is that we can’t see at first how we close our eyes and turn ourselves around from the solutions, diving into depression, procrastination, sadness into the “no way out” mode. Instead of losing time and energy on current circumstances resistance, let’s see what you can do to get out of that mode and change things around you very quickly!    1. Limit your moaning time Easy to say, hard to do. Emotions are important, we all understand that trust me..we all do. Give yourself some time to let all those emotions out, get upset, cry, share this suffering with the world. For sure, If you keep all that …

Remote work ideas to make money online in 2019

I am a hard worker. I don’t think it’s a very good thing, because it is always better to work smarter and not harder, but at this point in my life, I work a lot. My friends work a lot too and after researching where people make money from without any investments (assuming you have a laptop and the internet, maybe a camera as well) I decided to come up with this post. Here are some of the platforms you can use for extra – revenue. Or actually, you can even live off these sources.   1. Share your knowledge with Skillshare  One of the best ways how to share your knowledge with people is to teach them your ways. You make an online course with several classes within one program. Build up the program, give your students some homework. It will take some time to come up with an idea of what you will teach, but as soon as you …

Become a best friend to yourself. Part 2

… coming back to the topic – Becoming a best friend to yourself.   When we are taking about friends and best friends, everyone will mention Bob, Patricia, Phill…etc., but who we never think of the closest ones? Ourselves. But we should. I believe that If you treat yourself as a best friend and help yourself in the same passionate way as you’d do for other best friend, you can make yourself happier. Look what we usually do. Let’s say Bob (your best friend) called you and said he’s got a massive problem and can’t figure it our himself. He needs you and what do you do? Exactly, as a good person and great friend you’ll find the time, run, drive, fly to your friend, help him out, will be there to listen. Sometimes you won’t even care If you are tired, or busy, you will be there for your friend. Most of the time we ignore ourselves though. When …

I am in the process of applying for a spouse visa in the UK now and one of the requirements is A1 English IELTS Life Skills test.

Become a best friend to yourself. Part 1

    I had a thought several months ago that I am arguing with myself quite often. I used to have conflict situations inside me on a daily basis all the time, I still do sometimes, but at least now I work on it and know how to cope with that OR who to talk to help me understand myself. It’s a funny thing though, talking to someone to start to feel yourself better but I will talk about it later on.   I’ll start with the story. I dreamed to be a dancer all my life. I love music, I enjoy dancing and as soon as I hear the track which somehow moves deeply, I instantly have tons of ideas for some short choreography, or I literally imagine how would a dance look like for video shooting. I mean, my creativity is on it! But I am too self-critical. I do hate an inability to create a dance, have …

2 hours in Dresden, where to …?

Sometimes you need to spend a couple of hours in between flights or while you change the train station, we all faced that, right? Dresden is a wonderful city full of history, unbelievable architecture and atmosphere. If you have even 2 hours, I suggest spending some time in the city!     The best place to see the city for such a short period of time – is Innere Altstadt. It is a district in the old town and the historic centre of Dresden. Have a cup of coffee in local restaurants and visit: Frauenkirche church – majestic building! Was built in the 18th century, and later was destroyed during World War II. By the decision of local East German leaders, the remaining ruins were left for 50 years as a war memorial. Reconstruction works started in 1994 and were completed in 2005. Take your time and walk in to see the interior. All building looks beautiful inside as well.   …
