A Year Of Mind Development – What Have You Learned?

2012 Blog ReviewThis is the last post of the year on this blog, so I thought that I would do a little recap of some of my posts for the year 2012.

Just in case you are still new to this blog, I  post here every Wednesday morning at around 8 AM EST.

My posts are meant to help you understand how our mind and subconscious mind work in accordance to the laws of the universe, our intuitions, and the spiritual beings that we are as humans.

Even though this blog started back in 2009, this was the year where I decided to dedicate much more time and true meaning to my posts and the whole blog in general.  I wanted to find a way to attract readers who would actually enjoy the lessons and tips that I discuss here every week.  As I have been observing from the comments I’ve receive throughout the year, I think that you do.

Life Coaching

In case you don’t know that about me, I am working at building my Life Coaching business, because my knowledge and life experience in this domain have made me someone who can actually help others to get on the right track to succeed in life.

A coach is NOT someone that is going to do things for you, but someone that will show you the way for you to take the RIGHT actions to get on the RIGHT tracks.

Just like a school teacher is teaching a child how to read, write and count, but can’t do it for him or her.  Most of the time, that’s all we need in life, someone to SHOW us the way.  It’s when I started realizing how many people I was helping and consulting for free, that I thought I could do this more professionally.  In today’s internet world this was totally possible, and this coming year will most certainly be a productive year for my Life Coaching business.

Coaching People Through this Blog

One way that I do try to help people out there, and for free, is through this blog.  I usually discuss topics that I know people may have issues with or misunderstandings about, and I usually give very clear examples that are either real examples that I or someone I know have been through or more general examples that support what I am talking about.

Very few of the people that I actually physically know (not online) go on my blogs (if you have a blog, you probably know what I mean), but to my surprise someone who I know well, came to this blog not too long ago, read my post about the Law of Detachment, and told me that it was all so clear to him because of the way it was explained.

This is exactly the type of comments that let me know that I am on the right track, and that my articles are not in vain.  This is the type of comments that I get more and more and tell me that I have to keep going.  You are the reason that lets me know that!

So Let’s Recap Some of this Year Posts…

One of the strong emotions that prevent most people to move forward or sometimes even take a step back is FEAR.

I’ve written two posts about fear this year. The one on this blog is titled How to recognize your fears and deal with them, and one of them is a guest post at my friend Donna Merrill’s blog titled The 3 fears that will prevent you from succeeding.  If you feel that you have fears or even if you’re not sure, go read those posts.

Being Grateful and Happier

I’ve written a few posts about learning how to be grateful and promoting a positive attitude in order to attract more positive outcomes in our life.

If you are not sure how much a good attitude will contribute to your success, please take the time to read why should you be grateful? Why should you laugh everyday, Building a positive attitude among negativity, and 3 ways of giving thanks that will benefit you.

Getting More Business

Who doesn’t need more business?  Well, maybe you don’t, but most online marketers, entrepreneurs or even work from home moms would welcome more business, don’t we?

While some people seem to attract business and money rather easily, others seem to struggle all the time. Who would you like to be? Earlier this year I’ve written a series of 4 posts about how you can attract more business in your life with some easy tips and actions that you can take to become more successful.

Getting Off the Victim Road

When I speak or consult with people I hear a lot of victims.  Not poor victims of a crime, no, not that type of victims, but the kind that like to complains about their lot in life and always seem to say “poor little me”.

For this reason I’ve written two posts on the subject.  Does the victim road lead anywhere? And How to break the victim mentality. If you tend to feel like a victim sometimes or even often, you need to read these two posts.

Attracting More Riches

Do you want to attract more money into your life? If your answer is yes, then find out why you are still broke, why you can’t imagine yourself rich and what you need to do to put yourself in alignment with success.

I’ve also written a series of the 7 main laws of the universe that will you understand better how those Universal Laws affect your everyday life and how you can  use them to your own advantage.


I’ve conducted two interviews this past year. I Will definitely try to do more this coming year.  However,  during this 2012 year I interviewed Donna Merrill, a personal development expert and psychic, and Melody Fletcher a Life Coach and Law of Attraction expert.  Both have a lot of experience and knowledge in their area of expertise and if  you haven’t read these interviews yet, I encourage you to do so.

I hope you enjoyed this blog throughout this year and will come for more this coming new year!

  1. Hi Sylviane,
    I see the personal coaching demand increasing much in 2013. Some people don’t have any idea of what to do with their lives, and on the other hand some people do know what to do but lack the discipline to take action.

    This is where coaching will come into play in a big way. Eventually we learn to get out of our way and get someone who will help us achieve our goals.

    Take Care,

    1. Hi Justin,

      Thank you for the encouragement. Indeed I read that the personal development/coaching business is on the rise, so this is a great niche to be in and great opportunity to help those who want to be helped!

      Have a great Happy New Year!

  2. I love these wrapups, Sylviane, it’s a great way to remind people of some of the best stuff happening on your blog and also let people catch up in case they missed anything. I remember your victim post especially – that one was so true and a wake up call for sure. And recently the one about getting in alignment with success. That sounds like the perfect way to start a new year! I can’t wait to see what gems you have in store for next year. Have a happy new year, take some time off to enjoy yourself and I’m glad we had a chance to get to know each other this year!
    Carol Lynn invites you to read..“Predictably Irrational”: Book in a NutshellMy Profile

    1. Hi Carol,

      Thank you for coming, as always, and even though we met this year, 2012, can you believe it? I feel that I’ve known you for years, even though I’ve never even met you in person. That’s the magic of the internet, I guess 🙂

      I’m so happy and glad if this blog can inspire even just a few people to take more successful actions to make their life better.

      I wish you a very happy and wonderful New Year, Carol!

  3. Hi Sylviane,

    That’s a great recap you made. I got an overall idea of what you are all about in this blog. I can see you prospering as a coach in helping others in 2013. Your posts sound all motivational and really speaking to the subconscious mind. I didn’t have a chance to read all your posts in this blog but I was lucky enough to read the last two posts: 1. Ask for the life you want and 2. This is a time of giving but do you know how to receive. I enjoyed reading each one of them and they truly opened my eyes and for sure I learned new things from them.

    I am so glad I found you and I will definitely be following this blog in 2013. I wish you all success. You are really doing great with your blogs.

    Thanks again for everything you teach by your caring personality and by your blogs.

    Be Blessed and wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year,

    1. Hi Neamat,

      The first time you left a comment on my blog I felt something special about you. It’s amazing how you can “read” stuff about people even through a few words online. And this has happened to me several times. It’s as good as meeting the person face to face in most cases.

      I am very glad that you want to follow this blog, I am definitely following yours as well and looking forward to get to know you more 🙂

      I wish you a wonderful New Year!

    1. Hi Barbara,

      Ah that money mindset that most us have because of our upbringing. You know it’s funny, as Zig Zigglar once said, “money is pretty much like oxygen, we’ve got to have it”, yet most people are raised to despise money, not openly, but despise it regardless by saying things like…

      Rich people are crooks, money doesn’t bring happiness, money is not everything, poor people are more spiritual… and all that good stuff.

      That’s why so many people are broke. They have that love/hate attitude towards money and that’s just not good to attract it.

      This coming year, I feel that more posts about the subject will still be necessary.

      Thanks for yor visit and have a wonderful New Year!

  4. Wonderful round-up of most of your posts Sylviane!

    I agree with Justin that coaching is taking up in a big way, and the coming year seems to be the right time for those who want to excel and do well in this field. I am sure with your informative posts and skills – it’s going to be smooth sail for you this coming year. 🙂

    Loved the posts you shared most of which I have read, but before I came to your blog – there are a still I need to go through – so thanks for sharing them with us.

    Thanks for sharing, and am glad you are also taking a break till next year. 🙂 Wishing you a very happy and prosperous New Year. 🙂
    Harleena Singh invites you to read..Blog Anniversary – Making Merry this Christmas and New YearMy Profile

    1. Hi Harleena,

      I know that you’ve read a good amont of the posts that I’m mentioning here since you’ve been such a good supporter of this blog.

      My goal is to provide even higher value this coming new year, because I really want to bring this blog to a higher level and have it on the map of personal development blogs.

      Thank you for coming here, and have a great successful New Year!

  5. Hi Sylviane,

    I’ve been enjoying days with the Christmas spirit and I hope you did well too dear 🙂

    Well, it’s not too long I started to stop by here but really glad I did 🙂 I know you are very busy with your work as you are also a freelance writer too. Even I never had coaching lessons directly, your blog is a wonderful resource for me Sylviane.

    That’s why I always like to stop by here since I started to visit here along with your other blog and mostly I was able to figure out my doubts that I didn’t know what’s behind it all such as Luck, Universal Laws and so 🙂

    Well, I’ll hope to go through the posts I didn’t , as you mentioned the best ones here 🙂

    As this is the last blog post for this year, wishing you a HAPPY and SUCCESSFUL NEW YEAR Sylviane 🙂

    1. Hi Mayura,

      I always appreciate your visits Mayura and I know that you’ve been very loyal to this blog since the first time you came few months ago.

      I am very happy that some of my posts have helped you in any way and am looking forward to be able to do even better this coming year.

      Have a great and happy New Year full of good things, Mayura!

    1. Hi Sapna,

      I’m very glad we met and seeing you here as well as my writing blog. However, I have 3 blogs not 2. The other one is my travel and food blog. It’s called France Travel and Food, and I post there every Friday. I actually have a lot of ideas for next year for that blog too.

      Those 3 blogs alone keep me busy enough, but that’s not all I’ve got to do, unforntuately 🙂 But I just love my blogs like they’re my babies 🙂

      Thank you for bookmarking this blog, Sapna. Have a wonderful and happy New Year!

  6. Dear Sylviane,

    I am glad that you had such a successful year. I am interested in personal development, especially because I have been going through the steep path of discovering my inner self. I have to go back now and read some of your old posts and listen to the interviews. Thank you for providing valuable insights and being a great coach. Blessings!

    1. Hi Margarita,

      I know that you are well versed in the theme of this blog as well and your posts on the subject are very profound and interesting.

      The interviews I mentioned are just Q & A type posts, very easy to read.

      Thank you for coming here and have a wonderful and successful New Year!

  7. You are going to be so successful with your coaching business Sylviane. Heck, just the one question I had asked you, you made it perfectly clear to me the area I continued to have difficulty with. See, we are all still a work in progress. I sure am.

    I also love these recap posts because if there was an area we still want to know more about and we missed a few of your fabulous posts we can run right over there and check them out because you let us know how important they were. I love your teaching style so you always make it so easy for us to understand.

    I know that you will continue to grow your already busy business and teach us more along the way. I’m excited about what 2013 will bring for us all and I can’t wait to hear all about how much business you continue to get. I hope you won’t get too busy for us all.

    Happy New Year!

    Adrienne invites you to read..Thankful Thursday – End 2012 With A BangMy Profile

    1. Hi Adrienne,

      I am so thankful for my online friends. I read those outrageously nice comments like yours here and I feel really blessed. When I have more time and money I really want to meet you guys in person 🙂

      It’s always so, so very nice to hear that what I write is clear and easy to understand. This is something I’ve heard enough times to believe, now 🙂 A friend of mine here in NC calls it a gift, and I am just very grateful for it.

      I have no doubt that you will see an increasing success in 2013 and whatever product you may come up with should be a hit.

      I really want to get serious about that book of mine and I’d better apply my own tips on that one to get it completed, already:)

      Thanks for coming, Adrienne.

  8. Dear Sylviane,
    What a great year in review. As for your coaching – I know you well enough to say that anyone who comes to you will find it beneficial to their lives. Not only do you know many things, but I strongly feel that your art of listening and picking up on what people say is a blessing. I know sometimes when we chat on Google+ and I say something – all I have to do is look at your face and immediately catch myself in a self-defeating statement!
    The thing about a good coach is that they can be intuitive and you are my friend! As for your background, there are so many techniques you use to help people push forward.
    The best to you in the new year,
    P.S. Thank you for the mention!

    1. Hi Donna,

      Well, thank you so much for all you’re saying here. Wow, now, what does my face say? Nothing bad I hope 🙂

      Yes, in fact, do have an extremely good memory that allows me to remember just about anything people have once said to me, like some type of recorder. Because of such “gift” I’ve caught more people lying than they’ll ever know.

      Ah funny! They tell a lie and than they don’t even remember they told me that. They don’t even realize that I do. Boy I’ve found myself in uncomfortable situations because of this in the past.

      But on the good side of things, that certainly serves me for coaching.

      Thank you for coming, Donna, and it was a pleasure to mention you here 🙂

  9. Hi Sylviane,

    Congratulations on your full year’s contribution! I love the way that you wrap up the posts into various key areas. Your readers can definitely a lot simply by reading this post and the related ones! I shall go back to each of those and comment.

    What I like about your way of blogging is that you genuinely care to share your expertise. I can feel it across the lines. I look forward to coming here again. Also look forward to your interviewing more experts too 🙂

    Have a New Year filled with Love, Joy & Abundance< Sylviane.

    1. Hi Viola,

      Thank you so much for your compliments here and it’s always nice to hear that what you’re doing is appreciate, even if it were just a few people.

      My goal is to post more and more intuitive articles on here. What I have been doing is try to test how much advanced are my readers in the personal development area, and help them grow as time goes on… like in a school kind of way.

      If you were to teach a 4th grader what you teach to a 10th grader you would just fail, you and the student, so that’s what I’m trying to avoid with this blog. I don’t want to scare anyone you know, but I do want to increase the level of “teaching” as time goes on.

      Have a very Happy New Year and I’m looking forward to know you more over this coming year.

  10. Hey Sylviane,
    I have been an avid reader of your blog. You have a way with words as each and every word you post in your different blogs, directly hits on the soul. I find your writings truly inspirational. Honestly, I didn’t know you are building a life coaching business. All the very best for it. Thanks and have a wonderful year ahead. Happy New Year!!
