Take a few moments right now ……….

Enjoy this morning’s sunrise.

Focus only on your deep breathing, nothing else.


Emanuel from the Netherlands wrote me after the show to say he had enjoyed all the amazing tips Marla and I talked about, but was wondering where to start? I know when you want to try everything at once, it can feel overwhelming…. Take a moment and….

Recently I had the opportunity to meet Mary Ann Masur Singer. She shares these wonderful (and short) Leadership Tips every Monday. Her one on Courage, below, has a message I think is worth repeating here for my readers. The list of what makes a great leader is long. I my experience working with leaders, the one asset leaders need first and foremost is Courage. Is is said that Aristotle said, “Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees the others.” I hope you enjoy Mary Ann’s thoughts on Courage as much as I do.

Today, is launch day for her new book, Ready, Aim Captivate! Put Magic in Your Message and a Fortune in Your Future. It features the insights of people who have pushed the boundaries, broken the rules, and changed the game to get their message out into the world, including world class personal growth leaders like Deepak Chopra and Ran Zilca. I was honored when she asked to interview me because the purpose of Ready, Aim Captivate! is to encourage you to share your special message and find the courage and resilience to rise to the top of your field; who could say no to that!?

You don’t realize how important some things are until you stop doing them – take breathing for instance…. Breathing seems natural enough, we do it on ‘auto-pilot’ — thank goodness! Can you imagine what it would be like if you had to remind yourself to breathe in, breathe out?

Yet, is your breathing auto-pilot working correctly?

I had no idea I would be spending New Year’s Eve with cookbook and lifestyle author Jane Webster at her home the Chateau de Bosgouet and a group of her friends. I’m glad I jumped at the opportunity! Ms. Webster is a charming host. She prepared a marvelous multi-course dinner for a “small” gathering….

A couple days ago guest blogger Gary Ryan Blair shared 15 ideas to save you time, energy and money in “What is this two-letter word costing you?”. But, how do you say no? In business, saying no is often about respecting and valuing your most precious commodity, your time. So, How To Say “No”

When you must say no, be direct. Saying no is not a time to beat around the bush. Although no often sounds more polite with a short pre and/or post-amble, “I’m sorry, I can’t,” just begs for a reply of “But why?” A short explanation proactively stops the inevitable “Why?”

I know, even the thought of saying “No” can cause stress. All sorts of commitments dash through your head. “I can’t say “No, to .” and “My needs me!” Saying “No” brings up all sorts of negative emotions especially guilt.

If it makes you feel any better, you’re not alone.

Do you remember watching fairy tales and seeing the words, “And they lived happily ever after” written at the end of the movie? When I was a little girl, I used to think that it meant that Cinderella, the Little Mermaid, and Snow White never had a fight with their beloved. I thought that they stayed in eternal bliss.
