“I’ve enjoyed reading your articles thoroughly and have been transported to a different place for the last few hours! Thank you for that experience. I’m not sure which article I enjoyed reading the most as they are all so full and expansive for me, but possibly the one on your mother. I hold my own mother dearly and often reflect on her journey to Canada years ago. Mags Magazine is fantastic! I was engrossed in the content and your story telling. Thank you for sharing with me and sharing your soul and stories with others.”

“It is an inspiring and motivational publication with down-to-earth practical words of wisdom for the young and not so young. It is written in a style which can capture the minds and hearts of its readers with meaningful examples of real life situations which we can all relate to, for it encompasses life’s many experiences related to our different environments and circumstances. “Live Your Future Now” is a wakeup call for all of us, for life is short and we must take full advantage of the many avenues available to us to master our surroundings and take advantage of our inner powers to succeed regardless of our place of birth, circumstances of the environment in which we are nurtured and our past and present challenges. The author takes us through her many vicissitudes and challenges in her life and points out that through determination, hard work, discipline, belief in self, and setting goals she was able to overcome many obstacles. She also calls on us to reach out and offer help to others, not the selfish and self-centered living so typical in our world of today.
I recommend this publication to readers all over our globe for we are all faced with the challenges espoused by Magdalene Cooman form different perspectives but fundamentally rooted in living a life in full now for a future tomorrow.”

Your sweat is the bond which you have with yourself to follow your heart, believe in yourself and to do the work which is burning in your soul. Don’t be afraid to sweat even though no one else may understand which drives you. The work which your soul is destined to fulfil was not assigned to you loosely but rather, you were trusted to carry it out. This journey is unique to you and only YOU will understand the magnitude of the work of your soul – only when you work from the soul level.
You may wonder then, if it is your soul work, why isn’t it being done faster or without tribulations or trials? You may wonder why you are being faced with barriers, rejections and lack of support. The answer is simple – the soul needs to grow and experience many emotions across its many lifetimes. This lifetime may not be the one where you will reap the amazing rewards you feel that you should reap. However, if the dimension which has to be done in this lifetime, is not done, there isn’t a chance that you will ever reap what you are capable of, even though you may live through several lifetimes.
Make this lifetime count. Don’t worry so much about the outcomes. Engage in the present. Make daily choices to support your soul work. Stand proud and tall today for every single bead of sweat which has come from your own inner efforts and whisper a word of gratitude to the Universe, your Creator, your soul group which holds you in reverence and believes in you.

The RIO games demonstrate such excellence, passion and commitment at various levels – of the athletes, of families, communities and countries. I admire that resilience, focus and determination of our athletes, both in winning and also not being placed at the top. There is no loser. I have tremendous admiration for each person who took up the challenge to compete. Every single act of commitment to our passions is a blessing to the world in one form or another.
Their performances remind me that each of them built their skills and competences over a long period of time. We can apply the same principles in our daily lives and work at molding excellence within us so that whatever we do, whatever we say, wherever we are… we can safely say that, “This is the best version of me and my efforts in creating excellence within me.”
What is built from within, will stand the test of time.
Mastery over our emotions and attitude towards living our dreams or reaching beyond who we are in this moment, can begin in small doses of doing more and less.

Let go of the need to be perfect…
Often, we get disillusioned with ourselves when we don’t experience the big changes we would like to see but remember that everything which we focus on expands. The more you practice the things which you would like to see in yourself, the greater are your chances of succeeding.
We only need to do a little bit more or less each day to engineer new and positive habits within us.
“Customer service is the experience we deliver to our customer. It’s the promise we keep to the customer. It’s how we follow through for the customer. It’s how we make them feel when they do business with us.”
Shep Hyken, Customer Service Expert and New York Times bestselling Author
I love good customer service. Bad customer service leaves a bad taste in my mouth. In 2012, I went to a restaurant to purchase a significant amount of food to feed a group of people. When I returned to the office, I realize that I did not have the receipt to claim the expense so I went back to the restaurant to ask for a receipt and that is when I found myself in an unexpected drama.
The cashier who served me earlier said very harshly “You did not ask for a receipt and I can’t go back.” He moved on to…
