Social Media Wave Crashes Over Publisher Who "Borrows" Article and Insults Writer.

Another viral story takes form over the web in Social Media. Dozens of well-known and respected bloggers are writing about Monica Gaudio's article being reused without permission in Cooks Source Magazine. The "publisher", Judith Griggs, for the magazine thinks content on the web is part of the public domain. Fortunately, most of us understand this is untrue.

Take a Trip to Futureland for Success!

Thought for the Day: Remind yourself frequently about why you working toward your goals.

It is easy to get into a cycle of rising in the morning, dressing, going to work, coming home, and going to bed. Becoming numb to our own lives. Losing the idealistic drive of our youth.

Frequently, if not daily, I would recommend weekly taking a few minutes on Monday to revisit where you are going and how you… Continue

When You Decide Your Will, It Will Be

The first step in any process is determining what you want your outcome to be. So, where do you want to see yourself in the next week, month, or year? What do you want to accomplish? Do you want to be an author? Do you want to double the size of your business? Whatever your idea of success for you is, write it down.

If you are going to be your own worst critic, why not also be your own best Cheerleader.

We are all quick to expect more of ourselves. When we don't meet our expectations, we immediately jump on the culprit. We pummel ourselves with comments we wouldn't dream of saying to anyone else. Giving

ourselves a real talking to, which only serves to beat up our own self esteem.

We should be kinder to ourselves. Forgive ourselves for accidents, issues, and etc., which may or may not be in our control. We should treat ourselves as we would our best friend, because isn't that… Continue

You Control Your Success

Thought for the Day: You can do anything you decide to do. Just let go of any belief that limits your thinking...and take action to remove all doubt.

It is our belief in what we can or cannot do that decides our reality. If you believe you can accomplish a goal, your mind will be fixated on how to make it happen. Have you ever had the experience of trying to

come up with a solution to a problem, decide to put it away for now to concentrate… Continue

Who Have You Forgotten to Forgive?

How many times have you forgiven someone who spoke a little harshly to you? Or someone who was a few minutes late? Or forgot to bring something to a meeting? Yet, how often do you forgive yourself for these minor transgressions? Most of us replay, rehash, and berate ourselves for the tiniest issue that we would give leeway to others.

Instead, when you start your internal tirade, STOP yourself and ask "Is this something…

How to Improve Your Attitude

Whenever something wonderful happened, my mother would always lean over

and say "Remember this, so you can pull it out when you are having a

bad day." She was absolutely right. On those tough days, I would feel

a little better about myself or a situation when I pulled out a similar

situation in which things went well. They may not be exact matches,

but I always looked for the ones that closely resembled the current

climate I was in. If I didn't have one, I pulled… Continue

Thought for the Day: You can reach your dreams. Give them wings with Passion, Determination, and Action.

Remember when you have had the experience of really, really wanting something and doing just about anything to get it?
