I recently attended a training meeting for my Mary Kay business and heard this bit of wisdom: Why do you make excuses? You’re the only one who believes them!

There is no end to the list of books and advice on how to be more positive, have more energy, increase creativity, productivity, and longevity…and so on. Every woman’s magazine has an article promoting dieting, making scrumptious recipes, and having a better sex life.

Advice abounds!
