The Eysenck Personality Inventory (EPI) measures two pervasive, independent dimensions of personality, Extraversion-Introversion and Neuroticism-Stability, which account for most of the variance in the personality domain. Each form contains 57 “Yes-No” items with no repetition of items. The inclusion of a falsification scale provides for the detection of response distortion. The traits measured are Extraversion-Introversion and Neuroticism.
5 Secrets for Getting What You Want: Strategy and Action
These are the same secrets I’ve used to go from struggling and unhappy with the path my life was taking to turning things around and creating life exactly the way I want it.
Today, I live life on my terms, unlike those days I still remember, when nothing seemed to go quite my way.
I would find a job I liked and then something would happen and it was all I could do to bear going in every day.
Or… I’d find a guy I liked and before long, I was crying in my beer rather than toasting the town.
I’m here to tell you, it’s not that way for me anymore and it doesn’t have to be that way for you. Because I’m here to share with you 5 Secrets that will turn your life around.

If you missed the first step and wonder what this is all about, check it out here: How to Get What You Want
If you’re tired of feeling overwhelmed (or maybe even unimpressed) with life as you know it, you’re going to love this course!
Throughout the course, I’ll be offering free coaching here on my blog – it’s easy to take advantage of – just leave a comment!
If you prefer not to air your deep, dark secrets for all the world to see, click here to join my top secret, free Facebook Community – Loving Life – where we encourage and support one another in the comfort of knowing it’s “for our eyes only.”
Rather than make you sign up to receive a single handout from me on how to live live on your terms (that’s what this course is really about), I decided to offer it as a course live and in-person, on my blog for a couple of reasons.
- I know that you’re probably just as overwhelmed with your email inbox as I am.
- I know how easy it is to get super excited about some new offer and put your name and email in that inviting little form, and then forget all about it.
By offering it here, you have the option of taking advantage of the goodness without signing up for anything, AND…
Since it’s split into 5 parts, you’re more likely to actually do something with it.
I know, it’s counter-intuitive, isn’t it?
But it works.

My name is Merry Wise and I’m a Life Enthusiast + Certified Life Coach.
First, why would you be interested in taking this course?
Because it will change your life forever – in the best way you could possibly dream of.
What Role Are You Playing?
Is it empowering you?
It’s been a wild and crazy ride.
I’ve been doing soul-searching and figuring out what this message is I have inside.
What do I have to share with you that’s not just more babble in a sea of babbling?
What are my core values?
For that matter, who am I at my core?
These are the kinds of things that keep me up at night…
And the reason I want to share with you today, what I’ve learned about role-playing and empowerment.
Life Lessons Remembered How Nail Polish and Pedicures reminded me of hard-won lessons. Today I had a poignant reminder to take time for loved ones and indulge in small pleasures, no matter what obstacles life throws your way. I have to say, it was timely. I’m in the middle of a move at the moment and … Read morePedicures, Nail Polish and Life Lessons
A Diverse List of Recommended Reading from My Library
As a Life Coach, I take my work very seriously. It’s my mission to help you create magic in your life and to be most effective at it, I’m constantly learning new skills. That’s why when I’m not actually on a coaching call with someone, you’ll often find me with my nose stuck in a book.
I realize that not everyone has the money to work with me (or any coach, for that matter.)
Let’s change that!
While working with someone who can see the bigger picture is the fastest way to create wanted and needed change in your life, it’s by no means, the only way.
You are capable of creating the kind of life you dream of (even if you don’t know how, or what that dream is.)
That’s why I’m going to open up the vault and let you see what’s in my personal (and up to now, secret) library.
What you’ll find here is a wide variety of books:
- business branding
- discovering your life purpose
Join me for Business Wise, Soul Rich – free training + Facebook Group
Business Wise, Soul Rich is my gift to you and includes 3 exercises I created exclusively for you + a Facebook Group where you can receive my feedback and support.
(If you already know you WANT this – click the image to your right to be taken directly to the sign on page. For details. read on.)
Here’s what you’ll get:
Soul Seduction: A Deeper Exploration of How You Shine (and how this helps your ideal clients to find you);
The Sweet Spot: Where Passion Meets Success (discover your Soul Purpose + how to meld your passion(s) into one luscious Business Love-Fest);
Wild + Wealthy Business (drink in one luxuriously simple tip that will Banish Business Blahs forever.)
I know you’re busy, so I’ve distilled the exercises down to three short and gratifying, but deep lessons that won’t consume a ton of your time. In fact, you should be able to complete the lessons in 30 minutes or less.
But don’t let that fool you; one thing they won’t be light on, is a deeper discovery of you and unveiling the message you’re here to contribute through your business. It will all become much more unclouded for you – and clarity is priceless when it comes to releasing your business struggle.
There are no rules in online business: except this – Be True to Your Soul.
Everything else should be approached as a friendly suggestion.
You’ll hear me talk about creating a business that speaks to your soul, but what do I mean by this?
What I mean is this:
I don’t want you to create a business based on what everyone else is saying you should do. Build a business that satisfies nobody but you and in so doing, you will also create an authentic business that speaks to the people you’re here to help.
I’ve been on this train of thought for some time now, but since I started speaking out about it; I’ve gained greater clarity and a frenzy of confirmation.
I’m going to share a few examples (for those of you to whom this is all Techno-Geek, bear with me. I’ll highlight the jargon and explain it all as we go along.)
Here are some examples of the “rules” I’ve tried to follow that have done nothing more than hold me back and leave me struggling in business:
- People have short attention spans, so keep your blog posts short;
- Search Engine Optimization (“SEO”) is dead;
- You have to focus on SEO, it’s the only way you’ll ever be found by the search engines;
- Write your headline first;
- Your domain name should contain a keyword, and:
- Don’t talk about yourself. Your readers don’t care about you other than to the extent you solve their problems.
While none of these is inherently wrong and in fact all are valid in their own way, they are also rules that have at times hindered my business more than they’ve helped it.
This is why I say: “throw all this shit out and create a business that’s true to you.”
Stick with me, I’m about to explain.
If you feel more gagged + bound than blissful, it’s time to release your entrepreneurial spirit
Working for yourself is eminently more satisfying than working for someone else. Although at times, it seems the government is doing their part to dampen the entrepreneurial spirit of America, doesn’t it?
And don’t listen to these guys telling you “Work from home 20 hours a week and make millions of dollars.”
It can be done, but just like everything else, it takes effort. Not just putting in the hours – in fact, I don’t recommend putting your life on hold as an entrepreneur.
And that, in fact, may be the biggest challenge of all. There’s always something more that can be done.
And it’s fun! It’s exciting! It’s one of the most liberating feelings you’ll ever know.
In fact, I worked like a dog this past weekend:
- Preparing the Entrepreneurial Quiz
- Not finishing the in-depth report that is an optional accompaniment to the quiz
- Studying headline writing
- Learning more about personality types
- Receiving writing tips
- Asking better questions
- Deciding being completely authentic in my business does not include posting pictures of me eating a bacon cheeseburger or guzzling wine with my bestie. (Which is good. Because I didn’t eat a cheeseburger *or* guzzle wine. And it’s a stupid idea anyway. Knowing that I eat cheeseburgers and guzzle wine does not help you to get to know me any better.)
Or does it?
Probably not, since I don’t actually “guzzle wine.” I have been known to sip it; but “guzzle” paints a much more lively picture, doesn’t it?
And I AM, if nothing else, lively.
