TO YOU, FROM ME: Embrace Your Inner Greatness
No matter how you might have felt about yourself yesterday or the day before that, I am convinced that you can become the person you want to be beginning right now.
Why am I so confident? Because you were born with that ability inside of yourself! Each of us, no matter where we are from or what we have gone through, have the opportunity to rise up and move forward in our lives and create a real transformation that will affect not just our lives but those around us as well.
I have been looking forward to sharing this issue of Conversations Magazine with you for weeks now, because I believe the profiles it contains are going to help you look at yourself differently and realize just how special you are.
Around the world people are looking forward to the 2012 Olympic Games, and I am honored to bring you two amazing stories of individuals who know what it's like to be on the world stage and what it took to get that. Tony Volpentest and Angelo Taylor will definitely give you some motivation as you read their stories, and I hope you will join me in rooting for Angelo this year as he competes once again.
You will also meet Vikki Hankins, a woman that could have allowed her past to stop her in her tracks. She chose, however, to use her life and personal triumphs as the basis for a business and a mission of helping others benefit from the power of a second chance.
Want to make changes in your life or look into a new direction but never seem to have the time? There's a great article called CREATING TIME that I think you will benefit from.
In the end when you finish this issue I hope you will realize that none of the individuals profiled here are any different than yourself. The only thing that is stopping you from doing more and achieving the impossible is YOU. When you get out of your own way and accept the responsibility that comes with greatness, then you will be able to really see a change in yourself and what comes your way.
Want to share your own story of embracing your inner greatness? I would love to hear it. If you're reading us online feel free to leave your comments below this post. Those reading the print publication can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Embracing Your Inner Greatness" in the subject line. Together we can move forward and show others how they can be the change they say they want in the world.
