Write It Down, Make It Happen by Henriette Anne Klauser Book Review #1



Have you ever written down a list of goals you wanted to achieve or even just a list of things you needed to do for the day?

You may think that this is just something we do to organise ourselves or that its just a “to do and not to forget list” however what we are doing is much more powerful than what we think. We are in fact writing to soothe ourselves, our doubts and even solidify what we want.

This book has inspired me to do more of what I was already doing, writing to who I want in my life and writing as if those things I wanted had already been manifested. This book will make you dive deeper than the outer layers of your wishes. You may have something holding you back stopping you from going for what you want, this book will make you write it out so that in essence you are writing to find solution to what exactly is with holding you from realising your dreams and in essence  will help you to “Make It Happen”

My Testimony:

I wrote e-mails to my future Partner/Husband (an e-mail I made up) so that I could really feel the emotions of what it would be like to have my desired partner in my life, the goal was to make him feel real in order to manifest him into reality. My desire was strong that in turn I met my now partner and father to my child within months of writing those initial e-mails and now two years later here we are. Upon seeing the title to this book I decided that I had to read up on it and that maybe it could help me expand my already realised power of writing.

I found that this book very easy to reference as it cuts up the topics into sections with a small review at the end of each chapter where it shows you how you can personally apply the strategies discussed to real life.

It is made up of stories where the strategies have worked for others in so many different circumstances and has also asked all the posing questions one could ask about weather this theory works or not.

It doesn’t matter if you are not good at writing, you don’t have to be! You simply have to start somewhere and this book will help you figure out what works best for you.

A very easy read I would HIGHLY recommend adding this book to your self help library guys!

Is Success Everything?


I cannot tell you how many times I have attempted to make something of my life and ran away from what I was trying to achieve. It’s not that I think I don’t have what it takes, it’s just that I haven’t believed in where it could go. I’ve had many urika moments and great ideas but have never pushed myself enough to materialise the greatness I had conjured up in my mind.

I recall the many times I have said ” He/she is lucky, they knew what they wanted to do from the beginning” and “If its your passion then of course you will do well”  I have envied those who have just instinctively known from the get go what they wanted to do in life and just pursued it effortlessly, or so it seemed…

My question was always “if only I could have that same passion about something I love….”?

But this leaves me wondering why we do put so much pressure on ourselves to achieve at a particular time? To be earning a particular amount in a particular type of career?

Ultimately it shouldn’t be how fast and how much but rather how spiritually rewarding? Will I get job satisfaction out of this? I’ve always believed in experimenting! You never know where it might lead you. Now I know this any seem like a waste of time, or even seem like a lack of direction but how can that be true when seeking your passion?

As much as my eyes could only see people, who were sure of what they wanted, succeeding and doing well, I still knew people who had taken routes that at first seemed right but weren’t, a lot of people who couldn’t make up their minds what they wanted to do in life, people who have tried and failed many times again, people who still haven’t got it figured out in their 30’s.

Those people had the best stories to tell and are actually quite inspiring. They indeed attended the school of life which is in my opinion the best type of school to attend

Question is what are the effective ways in which you could actually make finding your passion work for you? Here are a few techniques that could be helpful:

1. Remember you are Unique!

Do not compare yourself to anybody better yet delete all social media because it paints pictures of people seeming to be doing better but they’re only show you what they would like for you to see. So go easy on yourself.

2. Write down your ideas

Writing down your ideas will help keep you creative and keep your ideas flowing.

3. Experiment!

Try new things, study things you think could be a potential passion. Doing in-depth research on the subject you intend to study will help you conclude weather its right for you

4. Work!

If you can get your foot in the door and try different roles you never know where it could take you, sometimes it could uncover a role you never knew existed and you could end up loving it. Or similarly you could discover a set of skills you also ever knew you had.

5. Choose happiness!

If you choose happiness it will undoubtedly bring you the financial freedom you are seeking.

If it don’t make you happy, it don’t make sense. Happiness is everything and after all that’s all we ever want in life, right?
