Maximizing Your Potential

Regaining Focus and Achieving Your Goals: How to Fight Distractions and Remain on Track

Carin Camen

Focus and motivation are two essential elements of success. Without focus, our minds wander and we lose sight of what we want to accomplish. Without motivation, we lack the drive to keep going even when things get tough. The key to achieving our goals is understanding how focus and motivation work together.

Starting the Year off Strong

Carin Camen

Let's start the year off strong. There is a lot of things going on around us which can easily distract us from our goals and objectives. Many of these distractions are out of our control, yet they become a greater priority for our focus than what is in our control. That isn't to say we shouldn't be mindful of what is happening around the world, but we should be mindful of what is happening in our lives.

A Moment in Time

Carin Camen

A small moment in time? Or is it? We sometimes take these small moments in time for granted. We think, “Oh, this doesn’t matter, it’s not that big of a deal.” But if we pause and take the time to really think about it.... these little things do matter.

Why Set Goal Deadlines?

Carin Camen

Why set goal deadlines? A goal without a deadline is a hopeful wish. The reality is, we all work on deadlines. Fo...

Goals vs Wishes

Carin Camen

There are distinct differences in how we think, to establish whether what we are desiring becomes a goal or a wish. What may at first appear to be a goal, is often just the façade of a hopeful wish.

Enchanting Whispers of Winter

Enchanting Whispers of Winter—Day Thirty-03

Carin Camen

Thought: Winter whispers to me, that when the storms of life appear, to remember that I am the light that shines the way through the storm. Affirmation: Today I choose to shine. I choose to be the light that shines bright during darkened times. I choose to be who I am destined to be.

Enchanting Whispers of Winter—Day Thirty-02

Carin Camen

Thought: I am reminded in winter's whispers that when life's challenges seem to pile up, that it's just weight lifting time to help me become stronger. Affirmation: Today I choose to appreciate the strength I continue to gain.

Color My World

Color Palette - 30

Carin Camen

For our final color palette for this month, let's end it with a bit of dramatic flare using a beautiful monochromatic blue color palette. In this color palette you are seeing how the blue stands out against a black background. While black is not normally associated with a popular wall color, I personally have seen it used and it is absolutely stunning. It is a bold wall color choice.

Color Palette - 29

Carin Camen

As you are selecting photographs from nature, be mindful of all the colors within the photo, not just the prominent ones. Pay attention to which colors are providing a beautiful background for the main colors. Look to see if there are small hints of color which you could utilize to scatter in visual interest. 

Color Palette - 28

Evening can be an excellent time to research color palettes for businesses which are run in the evening and night hours. While initially your thought might question if this would make the business to dark, you can see how brighter color are pulled out and how they beautifully look with the darker shades of color. The use of silhouette can give a dramatic look to the décor.

Color Palette - 27

Carin Camen

Now that you have a better understanding of the terms hue, tints, tone, and shade; you'll start to look at colors in a new perspective. This new confidence will allow you to explore in more detail, allowing you to create a trend instead of chasing trends. Because a total redesign can be costly, consider doing a shadow box display of an updated color palette in a prominent position where your employees can hear the comments. 

Color Palette - 26

Carin Camen

Color is meant to be a celebration of life. Whether you are going with a peaceful subtle palette, or are coming in with a bold palette, you are celebrating the beauty of what nature has to offer. Let's break down the terminology you will hear. Understanding a few words, will enlighten your knowledge and give you the opportunity to explore the world of color more fully.

Color Palette - 25

It is important to remember that what you personally prefer to wear for clothing, shouldn't direct your decision for branding. A pastel color palette may cause hesitancy in how to implement with uniforms. Uniform attire can be made in a neutral color of grey or black with the logo utilizing a pastel color palette.

My User Experience Hat is On - Suspension Solutions

Carin Camen

I'm facing my second Twitter 3-day suspension in two weeks, so rather than whine and cry about it, I'm putting my User Experience hat on and coming up with solutions. Whether they get implemented is out of my control. But I choose to effectively use my energy.

Bots... If you're out there, we will find you!

Carin Camen

Bots... those pesky accounts none of us want following us because they are not real individuals. They make it harder for those just starting out, to verify they are not a new bot account.

To retweet or to quote retweet... that is the question. Which is better?

Carin Camen

To retweet or to quote retweet... that is the question. Which is better? Sharing each other's work help us all to get our eyes in front of a new audience. There are benefits to both the originator and the quote re-tweeter. As with everything, there are positive and negatives.

The Time Factor

Carin Camen

There are those who can magically transform the allotted time you are have been given. You are no longer in that moment in time, but have been transported into another dimension where time no longer exists. The world you know has disappeared, and for a few moments in time, you exist in a new world, created by another's hands. It may be a world you desire to remain, or a world you know you should flee, but are trapped within its bounds.

2022 Come Journey With Me

Carin Camen

The year 2022... the year I step into fantasy and fiction as I continue to travel upward in my journey as an author. It is a path I extend my hand and invite you to join me. It will be a year of mystery and adventures. The future is unknown to any of us, but together we place one foot in front of the other and face what lies ahead. It will be a journey of discovery. A small moment in time with great impact in our lives, should we choose to accept the challenges and learn the lessons which they will teach us.

Photography Collections

As per requested, I am placing my photography on my website. My first collection is entitled, Hidden Tresures. These are photo's I took to be a part of a future The Ember Within book, entitled Hidden Treasures.

Hidden Treasures lie around us... if only we will take the time to see them, they will be found.

Worlds Without End Lie Deep Within

Carin Camen

For someone who has written five books on learning how to create self-discipline in order to overcome procrastination... well... I must confess. I've been procrastinating. I understand why... fear. I understand my fear... failure. I understand the benefit of failure... I'm going to learn so much in the process that it's going to be phenomenal.

The Blue Flame Warrior Woman Rises Once More

Carin Camen

Oh yes... I am on fire! For those who are not familiar with the Blue Flame Warrior Woman, this is a visualization I use. It is used when I am focused and on fire with determination to take myself to the next level. I seriously, need to create an image of what I envision in my mind. 

The Evolution of Me... As an Author

Carin Camen

Earlier this year, I struggled with marketing my writing. I will always write, it is who I am and how I breath. My writings are my whispers to myself. I took down all my social media loosing 40k followers, and took my books off of Amazon.

Level 60 - Excerpt from Sphere — A Plea From Beyond

Carin Camen

As I step into Level 60, my birthday present to my readers is a newly written excerpt from my fiction book Sphere — A Plea From Beyond. My 2022 goal is to release this book. I hope you enjoy this teaser. In a darkened mist a figure could be seen on the mountain peak. A lone woman kneeling down on one knee with her long hair flowing in the wind. Her weight of her body leaning on a sword dug into the earth to help her hold herself up. Next to the sword a blue flame emblem faintly glowed on the shield which lay on the ground. 

Sphere – A Plea From Beyond

Carin Camen

Author note: I have had Sphere 369 brewing in my mind for several years. This name of this book came to my mind and I researched the meaning of these three numbers... 369. "369 represents compassion, idealism, and creative expression. The energy the number 369 represents also resonates with tolerance and tends to be philanthropic. The 369 energy is an inspiration to others." Google search. Having written a draft of a few chapters, I came to realize more research was needed on the evolution of civilization, government, religion, deity, and societies. Thus, I put my writing aside and have spent the next few years reading both fiction and non-fiction works. This book brings to life, the visualization characters I share throughout my non-fiction writing. It felt time, to let them breathe.The following are my thoughts for the opening of this book. Sphere 369 A Plea from Beyond - Introduction

The Mark

Carin Camen

Drawing a deep breath I felt the burn of the cold air go deep in my lungs. The night mist caused me to pull up the collar of my long black coat.  I glanced at my watch marking the time. In the distance I saw headlights appear from around the corner. The timing was on mark. I watched the headlights travel down the road and make the turn into the gates that lead to a mansion in the distance.
