The Power of Playing with Possibilities

“Get back to work!” Who was the last person that gave you that command?   Did you say it to yourself?  What we really mean by this is that it's time for hard, focused labor.  It's time to put our nose to the grindstone, keep our shoulder to the wheel,…

Trust in Yourself

“Silenzio Bruno!”  If you’ve seen the Disney movie “Luca” you know exactly what this means.  Luca and his new friend Alberto start to race down a dangerous hill on a home made Vespa (yes it’s as rickety as it sounds).  Luca is scared, and the doubt in his head is…

Is Saying Something Nice Good Advice?
