Lately, I’ve been writing daily quotes and posting them on Facebook. Early this morning I collected a few of my favorite quotes to share you with you. Enjoy!
Everyone has their own treasure chest filled with gold and diamonds. Its up to you to find it because within it there is a lot more then just gold and diamonds - your innate abilities are within it too. Find the chest and it will unlock every door you once thought was locked and you will be able to overcome any perceived challenge and obstacle with ease. Here is your clue: The chest can only be found within you. ~~Bruno LoGreco
Self-Confidence is a key factor to how much influence you will become identified to in your day-to-day life. The less you allow the opinions of others to interfere in your decision making process, the greater success you will achieve. You must not forget the opinions of others are based on their past/personal experience. Unless opinions can be substantiated with hard facts, they remain only that - An Opinion. ~~Bruno LoGreco
Last night someone at the event I spoke at asked me how I became a motivational speaker. I said, it comes with the territory of being a life coach and becoming one was easy - I woke up one day and said I'm a Life Coach. ~~Bruno LoGreco
The game of Life is similar to playing a board game. In a board game there is an overall objective that must be achieved. The objective is achieved by succeeding at smaller goals. Each time you succeed at a goal you move your game piece towards the overall objective, based on your game strategy. Now apply the same rule to the game of Life, or all you will be is a game piece waiting to be moved.~~Bruno LoGreco
Happiness is a state of mind, it occurs when you are in the moment enjoying the experience before you. It happens when you create your own happiness from what is important to you. Happiness is looking FORWARD, and to experience life as you go. Happiness is NOT reliving the past, as it will cloud your potential to experience life and happiness.~~Bruno LoGreco
Aren't you tired of crying the same song year after year? Don't you understand that only you have the power to change your life - You and you only? Make a conscious effort to start working towards the life you dream, today! ~~Bruno LoGreco
Life gives you the opportunity to create what is important to you. When you expect life to hand over what you believe is important on a silver platter, you run the risk of missing out on life as you begin to create a rooted belief of entitlement. You're not entitled to anything other than what you create for yourself. Stop waiting and start start creating. ~~Bruno LoGreco
Guilt is a useless emotion. It will destroy your self-esteem if you are not aware of it. Guilt comes from the choices you've made. Right or wrong, they are yours to own. Accept responsibility for the choices you have made and your guilt will begin to dissolve. ~~Bruno LoGreco
Love is what everyone wants and needs. Love is what everyone pushes away. Love is not uniform, It comes in different ways. When you push love away you create fear. Fear is anxiety and pain. Accept the love you have or you will feel the pain you fear. Stop pushing love away. Accept it as it is with no conditions. ~~Bruno LoGreco

Last night I created an amazing environment filled with beautiful energy. I picked seven unique individuals that posses specific personality traits and I invited them to dinner. Seven complete strangers to one another and everybody spoke to each. Looking from the outside it appeared like everyone was friends for years.
I am also known for creating my own life. I decide the kind of life I want and I create it. My best creation so far is when I was twenty-five. I decided I wanted to work in the Unite States in a global capacity. The odds were against me because I did not have a degree. Not having a degree meant I would not fall under the NAFTA Agreement. At age twenty-nine and still without a degree, I worked in New Jersey for one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in a global capacity. I beat the odds.
Fast forward to age thirty-one. I decided to create an environment where I would come and go as I pleased, make enough money to pay the bills and to be my own boss. I wanted to be the “somebody” in “I work for somebody else.” But I also wanted to create something fulfilling and rewarding all at the same time. Even a naysayer said it would be impossible for me to become a life coach, but I still did it.
In May 2008, I began to recreate a childhood dream, a past dream of performing on television. And within a few short months I began doing exactly that and I have continued appearing on television ever since.
So you can see all that is needed to create a different life is a desire. A will to put one foot in front of the other and walk towards the life you would like for yourself. You must decide what you would like in your life regardless of how difficult you believe it would be and start walking towards it. The odds were greatly against me but somehow I succeeded. Maybe it was the lack of excuses?
Life is the opportunity to create whatever you believe is important to you. If you expect life to hand over what you believe is important on a silver platter, your entitlement is what will prevent you from creating and living the life you believe you deserve.

My journey thus far is about learning and becoming self-aware. Building upon whom I am, challenging myself to reach new heights, and to never stop living life. There isn’t a thing that will stop me from doing what I choose. I'm given a gift - A talent so beautiful not using it would be an injustice.
I try to lead an easy life. Meaning the least amount of stress and anxiety possible. I do this by not focusing too much on tomorrow nor dwelling on the past. Not dwelling on the past is easy for me. I only remember joyful, happy moments within a day. Anything that does happen which is less than joyful, I try to deal with it in the moment. Once that moment is gone, so is the less than joyful experience. I carry only a small amount of sour experiences into the present moment. These are experiences that I will learn from when the student is ready. I do focus on tomorrow, though. But only to determine where tomorrow will be. Tomorrow for me is a goal post. Something for me to shoot at in hope that I will score or get close to.
Almost two years ago I wrote a post titled Childhood Dream. The goal was to appear on the morning show “Breakfast Television” on CityTV, a local TV station. Breakfast Television often feature experts in various professions, life coaching included. So I wrote to the morning show introducing myself, and why I make a great expert for their show. I had no prior tv experience and I was afraid of cameras.
One of my childhood dreams was to become an actor. I dreamed about starring in motion pictures. I even dreamed about the various roles I would play, and the fame and stardom that comes with it. I think a lot of children dream about becoming famous. And a lot of talented children do become famous.
Sixteen months after writing Childhood Dreams, I was given the opportunity to be in a movie that will be featured at the Toronto Film Festival in 2010. I also made my way into Reality TV and onto the Radio. So far I have not appeared on Breakfast Television.
Living my easy lifestyle is not difficult. All you have to do is decide to start living your life, spending less time in the past and focusing more on the present. Go ahead and dream about the future and use it as a goal post - A target for you to shoot at in hope of scoring or coming close to it. But always remember, it won’t matter what kind of dream you have unless you do something about it this very moment, or all it will ever be is just a dream.

Ten Powerful Self-Coaching Tips
By Bruno LoGreco
Are you living the life of creativity and happiness that you've always dreamed of, or are you allowing your fears or other outside factors to influence you?
Following the path that your heart's desires requires courage and might require a shift in attitude. There are several methods you can use to act as your own life coach and start working toward the life you dream of.
Ideas for self-improvement
You don't need to change every aspect of your life at once in order to improve your attitude and outlook on life. Self-improvement can feel daunting if you try to change everything at once.
A good way to embark on your journey of self-coaching is to make one change and see what kind of impact it has upon your life. The following tips are designed to help you improve your life and become your own life coach. Try out one of the following tips at a time to positively impact your attitude and daily life.
1. Find some ‘you' time. Everyone needs time alone to meditate and recharge. You may think you don't have extra time in your day. Start with 10-20 minutes to use for meditation or silent reflection.
2. Ask yourself what you truly want in life. Are you living your life according to your true dreams and desires? You may be unaware of your desires that lie hidden beneath your surface needs and wants, so take the time to find out.
3. Write everything down. Even if your thought seems silly, write it down! You may be surprised by the inspiration and ideas you can come up with.
4. Journal daily, but with a twist. Instead of just writing about today, try writing about yesterday.
5. Keep track of the "happy moments." Each day has potential for many small moments that bring joy and happiness. If you don't make a special note of them, you may not even recognize the small joys in your day.
6. Choose one task each night to complete the next day. This way, you have focus, and you accomplish at least one task. Tasking and taxing yourself with effort is important in reaching goals.
7. Smile when you wake up. Smiling is contagious. By smiling you improve your mood and can potentially improve someone else's day as well.
8. Give thanks each night. Gratitude will improve your outlook on life and help you see all the good and wonderful moments of your day.
9. Try something new. A new experience fuels creativity and your enjoyment of the day.
10. Create at least one memorable moment each day. Make each day unforgettable, even if in a small way!
Taking the next step with a life coach
Self-coaching tips are great ideas for helping you improve your life. However, you can take your life to the next level with a life coach and mentor. A professional life coach can help you set goals and help you move forward with your dreams. If you're looking for the right path toward happiness, a life coach can help you discover the path your heart truly desires.

The Success Indicators on Your Life Path
Many people seek out a particular goal in their life path and are content when they achieve it. The chance to broaden their horizons or learn new things within an existent structure is not as appealing to them as it is to some others. This is an issue that arises in many individuals because they mistakenly think they have achieved what they wanted to in their lives. The plethora of environmental noise around them begins to infringe upon their goals and forces them to lose sight of what they truly wanted.
A good way to think of this problem is to envision a large square box. This is not just any box though. Rather, in this case, your box has been divided into three separate, but equally shaped rectangular boxes, all stacked on top of one another. Each of these rectangular boxes is a highly important expression of your life goals -- individual levels of success. Within each of these levels of success is an indicator that tells you how close you are to becoming successful in this area of your life.
Every area of your life that you identify as a potential path for success can be further divided, containing the many different events and obstacles you will encounter as you strive to reach your goals. Think of each sector of your life as being divided even further, with three new sections within one of the three stacked boxes (sectors). Within each stacked box are three separate sections, divided by dotted lines that make up the life path you will follow. These dotted lines are not the same as the solid lines dividing the sectors -- they are a path that you have envisioned since childhood -- a series of goals and pathways to success that you want to follow.
As young people, these life paths may not be fully formed. Or they might be crystal clear in our minds--long, straight life paths from the early days of college and adult living to the ultimate goal of success that you have always strived for. You can see exactly what you need to do to reach each success indicator and achieve what you have set out to accomplish. And you probably did just this. After all, your goals as a youth were to be successful in the same way that you saw thousands of others live their lives. You wanted to reach your success indicators and experience the measure of success by which you would measure you life for decades to come.
However, nothing is ever as simple as we envision it during youth. There are countless factors that interfere with your ability to clearly see those success indicators and life paths to success. These factors, or "Environmental Noise," can be detrimental to even the most focused of individuals. Think of what would happen if you dumped the contents of downtown New York into your box and tried to maintain your focus on those goals. Would you even be able to see your life path anymore?
Everyone must travel their life path with environmental noise inundating them from all sides. It begins to become cloudy. The dotted lines, our life paths, begin to look like the straight lines and the success indicators start to be confused with any number of different distractions.
And then something will happen and you will realize that you are in fact nowhere near the original success indicators you set for yourself. Everything has changed and yet you are stuck in a way. You are deep within the center of the middle rectangular box and you have no idea which way to go or how to get back on track. The noise only grows louder and you grow dizzy trying to regain your focus.
It is in this instant that you must clear the noise and return to the basic, almost instinctive mode of thought you experienced as a child. What did you want from life? Where did you want to go? What do you need to get to that point? What was my life path? All of these questions must be asked without the distractions of the world around you muddying up your thought process. When you can revert to a very simple perspective of the world and only spend time thinking of what you want from life, you can be that much more successful.
You can succeed in life despite the environmental noise, cruising down your life paths and moving through your rectangles with ease, but oftentimes you need a helping hand to clear away the noise and look at life with fresh eyes. There is nothing wrong with asking for help to weed out these distractions and remove the clutter from your life sectors with a professional life coach.
Is your life path inundated with environmental noise? Learn how you can lift the noise and begin reestablishing your success indicators today. Visit www.brunologreco.com a Life Coach Toronto today.
Top 10 Benefits to Journaling
By Bruno Logreco
There are countless reasons to maintaining a journal. The top ten benefits of journaling may differ from person to person. However, there seems to be general themes that are attractive in the collective unconscious. Many people are looking to daily entries of their personal experiences to reap some of the following rewards.
Maintaining a journal is a natural way to exercise the brain. People who make regular entries are taking time to develop writing and communication skills that are very valuable in everyday interactions. This mental exercise also helps to allow your thoughts to flow freely.
Creativity is a second benefit to consider. This is an important aspect of journaling. The right hemisphere of the brain is associated with visual, imaginative and intuitive facets of thought. When you take time to write, you free the right hemisphere. The ideal entry will be one that puts the inner editor on hold. Thoughts and ideas should flow freely and naturally.
The uninhibited nature of this form of writing serves a third benefit of developing self awareness. People often create different faces to meet various circumstances. We tend to recreate in distinct situations including the work environment, the community and even when at home.
The process of keeping a journal helps you recognize the various aspects of your unique personality. The growing self awareness is a powerful force that can lead to even greater benefits in the future. Gaining insight into the self is among the most important aspects to maintaining a journal.
The fourth benefit is the ability to set priorities. Once you get a grasp on the thoughts and emotions that are filtered through your personal experience, you begin to gain control of them. The process eventually leads to a greater understanding of what is and what is not important.
The ability to re-see the past is another great benefit of keeping a journal. The pages can be revisited with a fresh perspective. It can be very surprising how much your understanding of an event changes over a relatively short period of time. Some writers find great moments of epiphany when rethinking and rereading entries.
Journaling is a fantastic problem-solving resource. The approach of using entries to come up with various solutions to troubles is a little different than approaches for self awareness and growth. Many people choose temporary brainstorming techniques that serve to give viable solutions to problems.
The seventh benefit of journaling is variety. You can choose what kind of entries you want to make. Common choices include brainstorming sessions, automatic writing and reflective notes. Personal journal entries can be made upon inspiration, when you first wake or right before you fall asleep. Some choose to do a combination of these.
Purging is the eighth benefit to this practice. Many people find it helpful to place negative thoughts and feelings down on paper. Once the negative energy is placed on the page, they are free to let it go. This practice also works well when dealing with anger towards another individual. Purge the negativity and work towards a constructive approach.
The ability to communicate with others is another benefit of keeping a journal. Those who work with life coaches can find a wealth of resources for sessions. Journaling can help you tap into your fears and dreams, helping your coach gain insight through entries that you choose to share.
The tenth benefit is improvement in your overall health. Journaling reduces stress. It provides time for you to meditate. The process helps to make the positive forces in your life surface and it helps to bring the harmful elements into light. The result of personal journaling is a new perspective on how you can take control of many aspects of your life.
