You Gotta Believe….you really, really do.

The Cape of "Ta-Da".....& the fun of believing!The fun of wearing the famous Ta-Da” cape of Loretta LaRouche!

The Cape of "Ta-Da".....& the fun of believing!

Fun, fun, fun…..is guaranteed everyday if and when you practice what humorist Loretta LaRouche speaks on. Most of us in America have lost our capability to laugh with abundance. The economy is down, the housing market is in a crisis, unemployment is up….and these were the headlines that several presidents have talked about for over 150 years.

Most of us know that “History repeats itself.” And that IS the truth!

The truth is also that we no longer laugh as much as a child does. The average adult laughs, smirks, smiles broadly or giggles less than 40 times a day. The average child under 10 does just that from 100 to 400 times a day!

How did we lose this incredible gift?

One of the topics that I speak on is “Laughter is Contagious….Want to Catch Some?” This seminar addresses the incredible stress in our life….at work and at home. What negatively happens at work, we drag back home….and what happens at work we tend to take out on family members that we love.

Take a step back…and smile at yourself in the mirror. Make eye contact with the person you are next to…and genuinely ask how they are doing.

Check in and see how you are doing at least 3 times a day. Check in with yourself in the morning. Review your state of mind mid-day and evaluate how you are doing at the evening hours.

The great, late Norman Cousins, knew of the power of positive and more so the power of laughter.He was advised that his days were numbered and that he should get his affairs in order within the next 3 to 6 months….because that was the prognosis given to him! He checked in to the hotel across the street from the hospital and rented and viewed comedy films, day after day, after day.

What prognosis? He lived another  16 years!!

Give yourself a “Ta-Da” everyday. Laugh out loud…and be silly for no reason. Don’t think about it…just do it. If you don’t pat yourself on the back and give yourself a “Ta-Da”…who will?

As a speaker, I love bringing joy to your company, seminar or workshop. Strong Incentives brings powerful results…..in a positive way!

Blessings in abundance to you everyday!

The sadness of death…….

Yes, I know it is inevitable, but when you lose someone that you knew or loved or at least liked a lot….the finality of the end of life is simply empty.
A family member, a friend or a pet can simply drain you of all emotions.
I lost my Mom when she was only 55, and I had just turned 23. This was way too young for both of us.
I now have lived much longer than the time that I ever knew her.
Reading of the death of Patrick Swayze, and the murder of the Yale Medical student, the death of a high school friend and the death of my sister in laws sister….has brought the brevity of life into a very clear focus.
I wish you to cherish today, or this evening. Enjoy your friends, your loves, your pets, your family and more important enjoy the quality of your life.The beauty of laughter is soooo cool. Make an effort to smile more….it sounds trite, but damn it is so true. Laugh and love your life starting now. Seriously, you may only have a few moments left. You are worth it, you are worth it….you truly are worth it. Celebrate and love who you are!

How frustrating is Tax Day in your life?

April 15th will be here and gone within a blink of the eye.
Either you will have waited till the big day in fear or have already filed an extension.
But the inevitable….is just that.
Do you wait for your return…to live off for the next few months. This economy is messing with all of us and we are hurting. Is your money what you will live off of the next month or two?
How do you feel instead of the government sending monies to all the bankrupt companies…..how about sending a $10,000 check to every citizen in America. We could then spend it and truly generate the country by bringing it back to life!
Seriously, think about it.
When America comes back out of recession #12 since the great depression….it will be the smaller stores of our country that will take the longest to bounce back.
Suzie Orman, says that we will have financial highs and lows for the next 6 years. Also she now says that we should no longer pay off our credit cards….but to STASH OUR CASH!”

Americans are being sent mixed signals.
Watching your 401 continue to falter.
But whatever cash you do have, spend it and restumulate this hurting economy.
Even America is being blamed for the worlds recession.
We are like the “leader of the pack” with a bullseye on our side.
C’mon guys…..give us a break.
This greed on Wall Street and in the hallways of these major banks, was the catalyst.
Give us time and we will be back…and we will be stronger.
Oh and yes there will BE another recession after this one.
Because life goes on…….
Carpe Diem guys……
Pay your taxes, or wait for your refund….but keep the attitude that keeps you going. This is your gig.
Turn off the TV, the NPR or the Wall Street Journal.
Sit on the porch, talk to a neighbor and enjoy the day. It’s yours. There are no refunds on this day. It is just yours. Make it right for you!
