Could this light up your day?

Uncategorized May 24, 2020


What could light up your day? Well, that all depends on where you are in your life right now, how your health is — and what's on your mind this very minute.


But (there is always a but) there is one thing we all have in common. One thing that would light up our day no matter who we are. Even if we want a better health, more wealth, a new life partner — or a new career. 

I think you know what it is...:



A smile.

A warmhearted smile.

That is what would light up each and every one of us. Even if the circumstances are what they are. Even if...

But you know what?

Giving away a smile can have the same effect as receiving one. You see..

When you smile, you stimulates production of endorphins! And endorphins reduce pain in our body and boost pleasure, resulting in a feeling of well-being!

That's a win-win situation! You may light up someone else's day and you stimulate your production of endorphins!

If you have to stay inside...

Fun Facts about planning and adjusting to reach your career goal!

Uncategorized May 02, 2020


This post is about reaching your career goals.

...Or to make it clear: it's about planning and adjusting, so you actually have a solid chance to reach your goal!


  • Planning is the first and foremost activity to achieve desired results
  • And did you know that planning is one of the executive functions of the brain?
  • Planning also helps you become less stressed out as you know what steps to take, and when.
  • Keeping up the momentum is, as we all know, crucial. It’s so easy to stop and go back to our comfort zone. But when we do our planning, that is what helps us keep the momentum!

In order to actually reach your career goals, you have to plan. There's no way around. You have to.



And do you know what?

It's fun and rewarding as well.

Because it helps you reduce stress, and it helps you stay focused on what's really important.

There are so many distractions in the world. And it's so easy to get distracted. 

By following your plan, you will not be...

Why it's crucial to have the right mindset

Uncategorized Apr 20, 2020


Your brain is the organizer and the control room of your body. It doesn’t need you or anyone else to take care of it. You can look at your brain as a "Master". It's the one that gives you new ideas. It thinks, and it solves your problems. 


You can use your brain to help you with “everything”.  That's something, right!?

Therefore, it’s crucial that you have the right mindset. Your mind needs the right food! (Of course, it also needs water and vitamins etc., but that’s a different story).



It’s not like we can work on our mindset for one week, and then we’re good to go. 

Keeping a healthy mindset requires consistency. Again – it’s just like eating healthy food or exercise. Think of a top athlete. He or she has to be consistent, otherwise he or she will not win. 

That is how it is with our mindset as well – consistency is key. Nothing more, nothing less.

Do you want to try an MVE to dial in on your life purpose?

Uncategorized Apr 17, 2020


I know there are so many of you who are looking for your "life purpose", your "why" — your "thing".

What I always encourage my students to do, is to open their eyes and see that they can have a purpose that consists of different factors.

And sometimes our purpose is NOT what we thought we should make a living out of at all. Or like some; their "why" isn't what they should have as a living.


I have therefore made a mini vision exercise (MVE) for you to dial into your life purpose.

By doing this exercise, you will become even more clear on what it is you are here on this earth to accomplish, what your mission really is.


Are you ready?

The MVA contains of you reading 14 questions to yourself. For each question, you stop and think the question through before you go to the next question.

And you do this until you have gone through all the 14 questions in your mind.

Then you put the questions away for 24 hours. Do something else during this time. Don't...

When Working From Home is Your Only Choice

Uncategorized Apr 14, 2020


In these days with the new virus going on, we see something happening. For some people, working from home is the only choice. 

For many of us it's a new world. We have to come up with new ways of doing our work and planning our days.


For myself I'm used to have both online and offline courses. That means that I get a mix of working from where I want on my laptop, and also meeting engaging students through my courses. I'm also used to do consulting/coaching offline.

When I suddenly had to just work from home on my computer I found myself in my pyjamas almost 24/7.

Or to be precise, when I had my Zoom meetings I got dressed 50% (....that means that my pyjamas trousers were still on, but what my meeting participants saw on their computer, was the other 50%: A dressed up Karine).

So last week I had to make some changes. I made myself a solid plan.  You can find the plan right here:


It was not a big shift. Just small things,...

5 Ways to Change Your Negative Mindset Within a Week

Uncategorized Apr 09, 2020


Having a negative mindset can end up influencing the decisions you make in both your personal and professional life.

To avoid being overpowered and controlled by negativity, here are five ways you can change your mindset and become more positive.


Accept That Your Thoughts Need Adjusting

Everyone has had dreams and goals that didn’t turn out how we expected.

If this happens repeatedly, you may start to wonder what needs to be changed. However, you rarely look inside at your own thinking as the place to start making the changes.


If you’re dealing with doubt and fear when it comes to reaching your goals, you may need to accept that you need to change your negative thoughts.

Remember Albert Einstein who said:

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.


Identify Your Negative Thoughts

Every day there are around 65,000 thoughts that go through our...

Truth bomb coming right here…
Yes, you read it. And I mean it.
You shouldn’t always follow your gut feeling.
You see.. sometimes it messes it all up. Big time.

Let me explain, so you don’t think I have freaked out.

Your gut feeling reacts on your feelings, right? On your belief system.

For example:
You know it’s dangerous to eat a plate with sand, so your belief system tells you that you will get very ill if you eat a whole plate of white sand from the beach you are sunbathing at right now. Your belief system controls your emotions. And your emotions…. yes, they are your gut feeling. You see?

To transform that thought to creating a new career. To make that shift from where you are today to where you want to go…

Your emotions will tell you that you have to be careful. That this is something scary. At the same time, your emotions will tell you that you would feel less stress with a new career. You would feel more joy and happiness, because you...

There is just one thing that makes your dreams impossible

Uncategorized Mar 25, 2020


We often have all these excuses why we can't follow our dreams. We blame the economy, our family, our background — and even our Facebook friends!

Yes, I'm not kidding. Even our Facebook friends.


You see, it's so much safer for us to be where we are right now than doing what it takes to make our dreams possible.

Why? It's human nature.

We want to be in the normal. In our safe spot. 

If we had just opened our eyes, we could see the big picture. Then we would see that it's just one thing that makes our dreams impossible.

And that one thing is our fear of failure



We are so afraid of failure that we come up with all these excuses, ending up back at the starting point. And it is our fears that are talking when we blame all the other factors, like the economy, our even our Facebook friends.

I blamed my Facebook friends. It's true! I did! I said that I couldn't go after my dream because it would confuse them in what my business...

How to use your MINDSET to change your day

Uncategorized Mar 12, 2020


I guess you at some point in your life have started your day just like I have. When everything goes wrong. You are so tired, you just want to stay in your bed for five more minutes. But when you’ve hit the snooze button on your phone for 30 minutes you just have to get out of the bed. You just have to…


It was so much better before we got our mobile phones, because it is so easy to just snooze five more minutes. And those five minutes becomes five more, and then….

When you finally get out of your bed you spill toothpaste on your shirt, and you get more and more grumpy. And your day just keeps going in a bad direction. It’s like someone threw a curse at you.

What if you had started your day with a smile, stretching your body like a little baby, getting out of the bed at a speed that is preferable an early morning? What if? I can almost say for certain that your day would have turned out so much better. Without all these bad things happening...

What if your daydream came true?

Uncategorized Mar 06, 2020


Yes......What if it your daydream came true — let’s say within a year, within 5 months or even just within 3 months?


Hmmm.. you might be thinking: "No way! Not within a year! And definitely not within 5 months! And 3 months? Karine, are you crazy?"

Maybe you're thinking: "I have no clue what to do next, where to start, I have a ton of fears, I don’t have some specific skills".... yes... and the list just keeps going.

But this crazy Norwegian woman (meee) is here to tell you that your daydream CAN come true! It can! I know it can!

You see...

Mine did! Even if I had all those hairy scary obstacles... 
From suffering from PTSD, to a huge mortgage on our home. I had a good paying job as a fire chief... You know.. Things that could have held me back, if...listen: IF I hadn't been daydreaming.


I daydreamed of being my own boss, where I would wake up every morning looking forward to a new day. Where I could do something that inspired me,...
