Don't Be Ashamed of Your StoryYesterday night, I received a wonderful surprise message from an audience member who listened to me speak a month ago.

I was deeply touched that my message inspired him. Before this journey into motivational speaking I had all these doubts, who would listen to me? I’m not a celebrity or a famous person.

What I came to realize was that was my alter ego speaking to me; my negative inner chatter telling me I’m crazy, not good enough, who do you think you are, forget about your dreams, stay small and crawl back into the hole you came from. This is what I believed and felt as a teen.

My message to all of you who feel unfulfilled in life, to let go, stop living for others, and start doing things for yourself. The average lifespan of a human being is 80 years old.

Don’t you feel you deserve to make every second in your life count? Make it happen starting today!
