You’re Not Perfect – Get Over It

How we see ourselves is a huge determining factor in whether we reach our dreams. See yourself as a failure and you will be. See yourself as a loser, and you’ll lose. See yourself as only deserving the crumbs in life, and crumbs are all you will get. It’s time to stop standing in the ...

I was hanging out and chatting on one of my favorite blogs (www.motivational-speakers-review.com) and one of my favorite speaker friends Marilyn Sherman (www.marilynsherman.com) commented that I was one of the hardest working motivational speakers she knows.

I Want What She’s Got!

I struggle with coveting my neighbor’s stuff. Show me an iPod, and I want one. Show me a new pair of boots, and I’m wearing them by lunch. Tell me you’ve got a stalker and I’m jealous that nobody wants to stalk me. And it never really occurs to me that sometimes people look at ...
