Inspired & Unstoppable: 3 Practices to Succeed Wildly in Your Life’s Work

As a young woman I denied my calling, the life that called my name, and I achieved worldly “success.” I ignored my desire to write, considered it fanciful. Instead, I graduated Harvard Law School with honors. I stomped around in designer suits on partnership track in a swanky law firm. But the higher I climbed, the sadder I felt.

Q: I went on a date with this guy and I thought it went well...It's been a few days and he hasn't called me. He should have called by now right? So annoying........ Ah yes, an oldie but goodie. The age old question, "What does it mean if he doesn't call after a date?" Well sadly doll, it means exactly what you think it means...he doesn't want to talk to you. And hey it's okay!...more
