Do Something

Jan 18, 2021

As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

What are you putting up with? Perhaps a “friend” makes comments that eat at your self-esteem.  Possibly you’ve witnessed an injustice or experienced microaggressions from co-workers.  Maybe you are angry about the various incidences of racially-motivated mistreatment that have come to light in the U.S. and around the world.  Abuse,...

Take A Leap And Believe

Jan 04, 2021

(view video below)

As Sarah Ban Breathnach said, “Take a leap of faith and begin this wondrous new year by believing.”

What do you believe?  Your beliefs filter your vision, direct your behavior and drive your life. If you believe in limitations, you will see obstacles. If you believe in potentiality, you will see opportunities. The beginning of a new year symbolizes renewal and is a reminder that at any time you can set a new agenda and create a new...

Give Your Presence

Dec 21, 2020

As Thich Nhat Hanh said, “If you love someone, the greatest gift you can give them is your presence.”

How present are you? When my nephew was little we used to make a gingerbread house during the holidays. It was a big production that took a couple of days to construct entirely from scratch. After we admired our handiwork–and ate some leftover “lumber”–he would give our creation to his Sunday school class. What I enjoyed most was simply...

Speak Your Truth

Dec 14, 2020

As Maya Angelou said, "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."

What's your story? Maya Angelou had unspeakable things happen to her that silenced her voice at a young age. She literally did not speak for almost five years but during that time fell in love with books. After holding a variety of jobs from the first Black female cable care conductor in San Francisco at age 16 to calypso dancer and correspondent in Africa, she decided...

Claim Your Success

Dec 07, 2020

As Zig Ziglar said, "The real opportunity for success lies within the person and not in the job."

How well are you harnessing your personal power? When I was hired as a Management Associate at MTV Networks in 1992, I didn't allow the entry-level title to stop me from innovating. Within a little over two years, I founded VH1 Interactive (at the start of the commercial Internet) and then the [email protected] Radio Network. Within five years, still in my twenties, I became...

Set Your Vision Free

As Michelangelo said, "I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."

What do you see?  Imagination is at the heart of creation. It is a gift we each have. It fuels innovation in business, joy in love, and adventure in life. As children, our imaginations are very active. Research has shown that kids spend as much as two-thirds of their time in imaginative play. They don't know what is NOT possible. Yet, their natural tendency to daydream and...

(watch video below)

On Thursday, November 26, 2020 (Thanksgiving in the U.S.), we held a virtual gathering where we shared affirmations, meditation and gratitude to give our brains and spirits a positive charge and raise the vibrations for ourselves, loved ones and the world. The impromptu session was filmed live on via Zoom.

As explained in PositivePsychology.com, "when we express gratitude and receive the same, our brain releases dopamine and serotonin, the two crucial neurotransmitters...

Practice Gratitude

Nov 23, 2020

(view video below)

As Denis Waitley said, "I had the blues because I had no shoes until upon the street I met a man who had no feet."

How deep is your gratitude? Gratitude is the expression of appreciation for what is good in your life. It is a sincere feeling of thankfulness and joy that can actually improve your emotional and physical well-being. It can trigger the parasympathetic nervous system which helps the body relax, decreasing the stress hormone cortisol and increasing the...

Play Your Cards Well

Nov 16, 2020

(view video below)

As Jawaharlal Nehru said, "Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is your own will."

How well are you playing your hand? I was somewhat of a card shark growing up. The great Muhammad Ali taught me card tricks while I spent time at his training camp with my family. My primary game was Gin Rummy. Each player gets ten cards. The first task is to review and sort them. Don't spend time lamenting your...
