TO BE Blog

I want to start a learning blog with some readers of the TO BE book from different countries and backgrounds.  I aim at having at least one person per continent.

The goal is to have real case studies from people who work through the processes in the TO BE book and with their results inspire and empower  millions around the world to also go and live the life of their dreams.

In exchange this group will be part of my new Elite coaching (normally 197$/mo) and may also join my mastermind team once they show their serious commitment (this special group is by invitation only). This is not for the faint of heart but if you really want to move yourself into a more fulfilled life, this is for you.

I think this will be an incredible ride… and I hope you will be part of it.

    Hi, Barbara. I just came across information about your book and am exited to embark on the journey of a lifetime! I was raised by a very damaged father. I feel as if my dreams died in my childhood. I have wandered through my life with little to no direction and think of my life as “passing me by”. I sometimes feel that I’m just watching life from a distance, trying to survive each day instead of being actively involved in it. Do you think that your book will help me regain my sense of vision and passion for life? Also, is the blog opportunity still available? I will be ordering your book very soon and look forward to hearing beck from you. Sincerely, Laurianne

    • barbara says:

      Hi Laurianne,
      sounds like we had to go through similar experiences. Still, we are adults now and yes, we can change! It’s a choice you can make like I have made it years ago. Go to Amazon and get the book. Its heavily discounted at the moment, only around 12$ right now. Do not wait any longer. Becoming aware that you are drifting is already the first step to change so you are well on your way. Now it is up to you to become clear on which direction you want to take in your life. You can leave the past behind you and start on YOUR own journey to happiness and fulfillment. However I want to warn you, the book is a workbook. Just reading is not enough. You have to work it. As you know freedom is not free. You have to give it some time and effort but if you are committed to your life, you can and will make it happen. That I can promise you Laurianne.
      The blog opportunity is still available. Keep me updated.

      • Laurianne says:

        Thank you, Barbara, for your prompt reply and encouragement. I will order the book and work it. As you probably know, moving from the “safe” place of inertia will be a high hurdle to cross. I will stay in touch. Laurianne

        • barbara says:

          Yes I know how it is going from inertia to action Laurianne and I comment you on taking that step. Now all you have to do is take baby step after baby step – one at the time. That’s all it is 🙂
          Stay in touch

  14. Tony Reever says:

    I trust you and yes it surely likely to guide lot of people.

  15. Hord says:

    It’s hard to find knowledgeable people on this topic, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

  16. Keflex says:

    I feel like you could probably teach a class on how to make a great blog. This is fantastic! I have to say, what really got me was your design. You certainly know how to make your blog more than just a rant about an issue. Youve made it possible for people to connect. Good for you, because not that many people know what theyre doing.

  17. David says:

    Barbara is a dear colleague and friend, a talented “artist”. She is wise beyond her years. Her words challenge and bring encouragement to the lost, or certainly have for me. Thank you Barbara, for being you and sharing your passion with us all. David

  18. The wealth of the mind is the only wealth.

    I heard about this blog site from my cousin. You should submit this to rss directories. It would make it easier to find. Thanks!

  23. Burtis says:

    I usually dont take time to ever make comments on a website but I just want to say I would really be doing you a grave disservice if I didnt write something. This post has most definitely shown me the light. Thank you so much for writing it.

  24. Degrand says:

    Excellent report we have to spread the word about this website.You should have far more attention .

  25. barbara says:

    Dear Zanne,
    how are you getting on with the TO BE book? Hope you are starting to see different and better results in your life.

    My family and i came here simply because this journal has been tweeted by a girl I was following and am excited I made it here.

  28. Sony says:

    Hi, I have been quite a lurker on your website and wanted to break my silence. Your post, TO BE Blog : To Be Or Not To Be – The Choice Is YOURS! today was simply awesome.

  29. barbara says:

    Dear Zanne,
    I must appologize for the link not working. Obviously my technical skills are not anywhere near as good as my coaching skills. I am really sorry for this Zanne. Just returned from a 3 week absence during which I had next to no internet access. I know how frustrating it is to want to move forward and not having the tools. Really sorry. Please, let me know what I can do to help you and of course to make up for this disaster.

    Be well

  30. Hi Barbara

    After a diversion of following up some of the things that came up working through the first half of To Be or Not To Be, I’m finally here.

    A combination of the recession and holes in my self-belief had been eroding my finances over the first half of the year and getting me down when I came across a link to your book. It looked compact and focused, a useful guide to get me on track. It arrived at my mum’s just before I came home from visiting her in LA and I hungrily worked through the first few sections on the flight home.

    I had been starting to look at my long-running, long-distance relationship with “sensible” eyes, then read the beginning of your book and my hope and sense of directions to pursue my dreams flooded back. That was the end of July, and I spent August working through the book and then following up things that came up as important to act on.

    I went to the library looking for Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich. They had no copies available so they recommended the charity bookshop next door. I didn’t find it there, but I did find a book on men and women’s different approaches to life and why (Why women cry and men lie – very good) and Smart Women Finish Rich, which both fit with my needs. Then I came across Have the Relationship You Want by Rori Rae, which gave me more different and empowering insights on relationships.

    This last week I was in Stockholm for meetings on a European project I’m co-ordinating (a dream project that I got funded), and it was the second time ever of many visits that I didn’t see my man while I was there. I knew he’d be away with work, and that was fine. Last year when he wasn’t available, I was really sad, despite loads of other amazing things happening. So this contentedness was really new. I also didn’t feel “too poor” or “not good enough” as I often have a lurking feeling of when I’m there. Everyone I met with was looking for yet more ways to collaborate with me and the friends I stayed with were lovely as always. I really felt like I’d had a breakthrough in actually FEELING abundance and gratitude, not just seeing or thinking it. I’m sure it’s To Be or Not To Be that catalysed that. Nearly finished with the relationship books now, so will soon be getting back to TBoNTB to glean more inspiration.

    Many thanks!!

    Warm wishes

      Welcome to the TO BE blog Sabrina and thanks for sharing your experience with us.

      It really makes me happy to read that contentment has set in. That is something so big, isn’t it? We can enjoy the moment as it is, not always looking for what isn’t (yet). So congratulations on this breakthrough. I look forward to hear of your development further and if I can help with anything, let me know.

      I am shocked that the library did not have “Think an grow rich”. This is an all time classic and absolute must read. You can find it online for free as it is in the public domain but I recommend getting the physical book so you can use it again and again and write your thoughts in it as you go through. My 3 favorite classics are: Think and grow rich, “As a man thinketh” by James Allen and “The richest man in Babylon” by Clarson. The last one is great for sorting out your financial situation.

      I look forward to hear further from you.
      Be well

  34. I have just returned from an amazing two week vacation with my wife in Antalya in Turkey.

    Going to the airport I spoke with the cab driver about the usual things like the weather, vacations and what did I work at…
    We spoke about wanting to find a career that we would love to do, he wanted to be a soccer coach and I wanted to help motivate and inspire people to help them achieve their goals and dreams. It also transpired that we had both read dozens of personal development books between us. I actually got out of the cab full of energy instead of the usual feeling of being sapped of all my positive energy. It felt like a sign. I went away on vacation knowing that I needed to start planning the life of my dreams I just needed to know how.

    We woke up early every morning for two weeks to breath taking sunrises and we made a date each evening with our balcony to see the kind of sunsets only post cards or movies usually show. I made a promise that soon all my days would be like this!

    I returned from vacation vitalized, full of energy and feeling very positive.
    Waiting for me on my return was a copy of “To Be or Not to be the Choice is Yours” in my mailbox.
    I had ordered it just before I went on vacation.
    It is almost as if I had been preparing myself mentally and physically on vacation for the work assignments that Barbara has in store for me in her book.

    I must be honest, I actually believe that Barbara has written this book especially with me in mind. After reading the first few pages you can really feel Barbara’s passion about personal development and you just know that she will help and encourage you all along the way until you achieve all of your lifes goals. Also right from the very start Barbara tells you that this is a work book.

    I am sure that anyone reading this post has like myself read a few personal development books in their time, trust me when I say that there is something different about the to be book. It just gives off a feeling that Barbara knows what she is talking about and really enjoys doing so. She also gives you sincere impression that she is with you every step of the way.

    The book starts off with a very impressive and sincere foreword by New York Times best selling author T. Harv Eker.
    Mr Eker goes on to say “ Today you have come to the right place at the right time”… “in this book Barbara helps you recover your dreams and offers you the roadmap to your personal success”…” Help you rediscover your purpose and passion”…..” You have the choice to put this book aside half read or to make a commitment to yourself and your loved ones to truly live the life of your dreams”


    Rediscover your dreams!
    Roadmap to your personal success!
    Rediscover your purpose and passion!
    Live the life of your dreams!

    Well sign me up Barbara, I have just made a commitment to myself and to my wife that this is going to be my best year ever.
    If you allow me to Barbara, I would be delighted to share my experiences, goals, dreams and action plans as I read your book.

    Chapter one here I come…….

    It’s interesting, how can I participate?

    • barbara says:

      Thanks for your interest in being part of this exciting journey Zeina.

      Do you have the TO BE book? That is essential. If you don’t have it yet, you can get it on Amazon or on the book website
      Once you have it, you start sharing your experience. What you want to change and why that is important to you, your break throughs, challenges etc. and how the processes in the book are helping you or what you feel is holding you back etc. I will monitor all posts, comment and help whenever anyone needs it. As soon as we are at least 6 people we will start a very special elite coaching group where you have direct access to me. For you this will be free. Once we have enough participants in this open group here new people will pay 197$/months for this program. For you this will stay free.
      I expect this to be a real break through journey for the participants. Of course only for those who really participate but it also means they need to be open to change and to sharing.

      I would love you to be part of this special group Zeina.
      Be blessed
