She has rightfully noted that "The more we refuse to buy into our inner critics - and our external ones too - the easier it will get to have confidence in our choices, and to feel comfortable with who we are." Arianna has continuously learned, from conventional school knowledge, to books about 'the self'. She quickly made her presence felt at Cambridge and became the 1st foreign and 3rd female President of the Cambridge Union. A publisher eventually scouted her out of school and had her write a book on the women's rights movement, which was a bold position to take for the era of 1973. Arianna also studied and wrote biographies about the lives of two of the biggest game changers of all time: Maria Callas and Pablo Picasso. Both books sold very well, and Arianna absorbed a ton from the prolific geniuses who had strong beliefs in themselves. then she wrote another powerful book called On Becoming Fearless...in Love, Work and Life'. With the momentum and confidence in herself rapidly growing, she wrote another powerful book called On Becoming Fearless...in Love, Work and Life'. A number of endeavors later, she would eventually launch The Huffington Post and became the editor-in-chief. It was soon rated "the most powerful blog in the world".

Arianna Huffington moved to England at the age of 16 and studied economics. She had a strong accent but a stronger ambition to adapt and learn English. She excelled on the debate society at Cambridge. She was always interested in writing and had a natural flavor for the art. She would go on to write books in the 70's alongside her romancer Bernard Levin and they would travel to 3 star restaurants in France and visit music festivals around the globe for BBC. While Levin never aspired to marry or have kids, Arianna wanted the opposite,so she didn't hesitate, but decided to take off to New York. Her fame would grow as she helped her husband at the time, Michael Huffington, bid for Senate. The unsuccessful attempt got her stimulated enough to pursue politics and become a supporter of conservative causes. She became a panelist on BBC Radio discussing political issues and an array of other television appearances where she could discuss her standpoints. Arianna Huffington held strong opinions and was not afraid to voice it, whether it was leading The Detroit Project, calling for the resignation of Bill Clinton, or running on the independent ticket against Arnold Schwarzenegger for California governorship. She's done it all and is always changing with the times Eventually her views adjusted to more left-leaning concepts of ecological activism and corporate reform, which led her to write the best-seller Pigs at the Trough: How Corporate Greed and Political Corruption are Undermining America. When the online world began to boom, she adjusted her sails to move with it, and created a few blogs before perfecting "the internet newspaper" HuffingtonPost.com. Arianna Huffington is a byproduct of evolution to it's highest kind, she has a genuine concern with what young generations have to say. She has even been noted to give out her personal email to big crowds at conferences and encourages them to voice their opinions saying “hearing what you have to say gives me the most joy.”
Arianna Huffington Found Inspirations & She Discovered Her Inner Peace:
Arianna was inspired by her father who was a journalist and was once incarcerated in a Nazi camp. He was apparantley an unfaithful husband and had divorced when Arianna was a teenager. Her mother was her role model and source of heroism; she moved the family to London for a better life and so Arianna could write the entrance exam for Cambridge. Her mother taught her yoga, meditation, and "social grace" while Cambridge brought her the fulfillment of learning. Some time after graduation, she appeared in Face The Music with Bernard Levin who she would form a passionate relationship with and who influenced her in every way. Upon his death she stated "He wasn't just the big love of my life, he was a mentor as a writer and a role model as a thinker." Later in her career, she met guru John-Roger, who had a background in neurolinguistic programming and he began to be her personal coach -he had a profound effect on her. All these motivating influences fueled her deeply. The success poured in with an array of different ventures and then her website blew up tremendously. Arianna became one of the fastest moving people on planet earth. And then she hit a breaking point that reshaped her career forever. She suffered a facial injury resulting from fainting in her office because of overworking and exhaustion. This allowed her to dig deep within. She had almost a spiritual awakening, if you will. Arianna Huffington realized the importance of maintaining a balance between work, health and enjoyment. She finally re-positioned her life and her companies' culture so that work - life was a fine equilibrium for herself and her employees. In fact, her offices have nap rooms, and everyone is encouraged to use them whenever they feel necessary. Today, she is as wise as they get and she boldly advises "We need to accept that we won't always make the right decisions, that we'll screw up royally sometimes - understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it's part of success."
"Fearlessness is like a muscle. I know from my own life that the more I exercise it the more natural it becomes to not let my fears run me."
