If You Weren’t Afraid

What would you do if you weren’t afraid? Recently I attended a conference where we did a fabulous exercise that I want to share with you because it was truly eye-opening for me.  We got with a partner and we sat facing each other.   One person had to be the receiver.  The receiver kept their eyes open.  The other person had to close their eyes and for about a minute had to supply answers to the statement, “If I wasn’t afraid I would …”  The person receiving wasn’t allowed to say a word, and you couldn’t see their face anyway

The Power of Talent

In 4th grade I learned a really valuable lesson about appreciating my talent and my uniqueness. I was taking piano lessons, but I was a poor student.  I preferred to play by ear but my teacher, of course, wanted me to learn to read music.  So while I was playing complicated songs by ear, she would force me to go back to my little dinky pieces in my piano book, which I struggled with because I wasn’t good at reading music.

Are You Afraid to Be Rich?

Many years ago I had this odd mentality about money and wealth.  I thought that rich people were all greedy, and that most of them had probably sold their soul to the devil in order to attain their wealth.  I assumed that rich people were conniving miscreants who took advantage of others.  I assumed that corporations were evil, because it seemed to me like they always used clever marketing and subliminal advertising to coerce people into buying their products.  Rich people who inherited their wealth seemed lazy to me. The other problem I had with the wealthy is that it didn’t
