Quotes from Patricia Ann Goodman: If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always got! A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes. Those are some of the responses Taryn Brumfitt received when she asked 100 women to describe their bodies in one word. For that reason, Brumfitt is on a mission to convince every woman to love her body as it is, to stop buying into corporate messages about beauty, and to change the vocabulary listed above for good. How am I ever going to teach Mikaela to love her body as it is if her Mummy can’t do the same? In that moment, Brumfitt decided not to go through with surgery, and instead, she would learn to love what she saw in the mirror without changing a thing. In a HuffPost blog post, Brumfitt admitted that the journey from body hater to body lover was not easy.
In May 2013, Brumfitt posted a "before and after" photo on Facebook that received more than 3 million "likes" -- but this side-by-side wasn't showing off a flat stomach post-weight loss. Since that image went viral, she has dedicated her time to speaking and writing about body love through her project, Body Image Movement. If she can raise the $200,000 it will take for "EMBRACE" to come to life, Brumfitt is confident the film will help shift the way women perceive their bodies. Women are always being told to change or be different -- lose weight, fight aging, smooth your skin, get rid of cellulite, I mean really, women are such amazing and dynamic creatures can we please change the conversation from this bullsh*t to something with a little more substance?
Take this challenge: Read this list of 37 life lessons and pick 30 that you think may be true. When an opportunity comes along and you think you need to feel ready to take action, you’ll never do anything. People are complex, and have years of ingrained beliefs and a lifetime of experience that makes them who they are.
Without the Internet, especially Twitter, I would have never had the good luck to meet so many  people with different backgrounds, beliefs and stories.  Most of my friends have very different views and beliefs about issues I hold dear. Take the time to get to know someone, understand their struggles and what led up to them, instead of making broad assumptions.
Our culture likes to idolize the renegade leader who single handedly turned companies around or built a great product. Whether you are an entrepreneur, a stay home mom or a scientist working in the jungles of Borneo; find your (online or offline) community and you will thrive. Hey, you don’t have to tell me that being a grown up sucks all the fun out of life if you let it. Many business people are afraid to let their whole personalities show because they are locked in the corporate image of what a successful business person looks like and acts like. Most people avoid feeling awkward, uncomfortable or ashamed like they avoid jumping in a lake of alligators. Write the words you have inside you, take those lessons you always wanted to take, or just let yourself feel awkward, but start taking small steps that scare you.
In order to build a business that is great for you, you must edit out the elements that are merely good. Most small business owners don’t need millions of clients, they need a enough to make a great profit and still have a life. Actually, most people think their children are exceptional geniuses full of charm and blessed with good looks. Parenting helps us grow as individuals, think more critically about our lives and generally be better people. Parenting is harder than you can ever imagine. If Jimmy’s mom is constantly complaining that her son is ignored on the playground, helping him with his homework projects, gets cheated out of a cupcake at lunch and didn’t get to be the quarterback at football, how will he ever learn to assert himself through the years?
Both parties are full of people who want the best thing for the country and both parties are full of people who lie and say anything that helps them stay in power. No one ever decided to change religions because some Judgy-McJudgerson told them they were going to hell. Most men are really, really happy in marriage, are respectful, loving, and will treat their spouses like royalty if  they feel respected and have sex regularly. It really is that simple. Before people start freaking out in the comment section- I know some of you may have husbands who do 50% or even 100% of household work.

Many loving parents accidentally handicap their children with their words; often they heard the same words from their parents.
Use a Facebook account to add a comment, subject to Facebook's Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. She plans to do so by creating a documentary called "EMBRACE," that will explore why body loathing is so commonplace and what we can do to change that reality. In the video for her KickStarter campaign, she talks about how she would stare in the mirror and tell herself how fat, ugly, and disgusting she was. How am I ever going to encourage her to accept and love the parts of her body that she doesn’t like without being a walking contradiction?
The "before" shot was from when she was in a body building contest, and the "after" was post birth. Now, she's focusing her efforts on creating the documentary, and has turned to KickStarter to help fund its production. On the fundraising page she breaks down what will be covered in the film from unethical marketing tricks to sexualization of women in the media. In my consulting business, I coach seasoned executives as well as those who are starting new businesses; I see a common thread between them. Yes, it is uncomfortable to say no, but it is so much better than resenting that I said yes. It could be the Mom at PTA who is bragging about how her son has developed a cure for cancer out of old lollipop sticks in his room, or a blog post I disagree with, or someone’s opinion on Twitter. Hours have been spent discussing the different beliefs without ever attacking each other personally.
Real failure is when you give up before you reach your goal- everything else up to that point is progress. I learned to start having fun again in my thirties after I said goodbye to the self-consciousness of my twenties. Soon you will look back on what you thought were your limitations and wonder what took you so long. From corporate clients to my business coaching clients; they less they pay the more difficult it will be to work with them.
You don’t need the masses to love what you do, you need the people you serve to love what you do. Keeping up with the Joneses will have you following the Joneses all the way to bankruptcy court.
The more you collect, the more you want, the more you have to work to keep your head above water. Parenting, despite how soul-suckingly hard it is at times, is the most rewarding experience of our lives. Helicopter parents raise children who don’t have enough self determination or will to stand up for themselves. Starting in elementary school, children should be gently encouraged to take a stand and choose discomfort over letting Mommy fight their battles. Politicians stay in power by spending huge sums of tax dollars for pet projects to keep voters (and their donors and lobbyists) happy.
Friends who celebrate your successes, support you when you make dumb mistakes, and love you enough to tell you the truth even when it is uncomfortable are a treasure.
There will be times your marriage is rocky, don’t be surprised when the honeymoon phase is over and the stress of daily life takes a toll. You should treat your spouse the way you want your kids’ future spouses to treat them. As adults we can examine those messages and prove them wrong; then you are free from getting caught in the same pattern of behavior . Long term happiness is less about what happens to you and around you…and more about who you are. The secret is learning to tolerate the feelings of awkwardness (and even shame) that come along with expanding your comfort zone and doing new things. How could I be so sure of what I believe if I was never exposed to anything else and had opportunities to question my beliefs?
Great leaders bring the vision but it takes others will the talent to execute that vision to bring it to life.

Letting ourselves be silly and have fun is a perfect way to balance all the stress and responsibilities of modern life. So cull everything that doesn’t propel you forward, or it will anchor you to the past. If you give away your time or talent, people will value your time and talent as worthless…and they will expect it to always come to them for free, on demand. There are some who will always want more for less, and if you provide it for them, you’ve got nobody to blame but yourself.
Give kids what freedom and space they have earned according to their level of maturity and by their behavior.
Be sure to go back and compare election promises and flowery language with what that politician actually does. I blame women’s magazines in my teen years for giving me the impression that my future husband would happily share household duties.
When you find yourself telling yourself the same message you heard as a kid, you can remind yourself of what is truth and not give painful messages any power. Once we tackle their habits, and the stories they tell themselves, we are able to focus on business strategy. The risks are too high that I would look like a jerk (because it would be jerky, right?) or that I would look like a bully. Everyone from lone wolf entrepreneurs to freelancers are plagued with a common struggle- loneliness. Instead of viewing your mistakes as failure, think of them as valuable feedback on what needs to change in order for real success and happiness. Look for friends who love finding the fun in everyday life, and start looking at your life.
A successful business person is successful because of the results, not because of an image. The more you learn to accept this as part of the journey, the faster they lose the ability to scare you. The government subsidizes student loans which allows institutions to continually inflate tuition and fees, requiring you to borrow more, lather rinse repeat. When you think about your wealth in terms of things that make your life happy, you will see that more money to buy more things has nothing to do with real wealth.
I slowly revealed my shock that he would not help around the house to my friends and they all admitted it was the same scenario at their own homes.
They complain, feel sorry for themselves, make backhanded compliments and bring everyone else down to their level. The people who take learning, growth and skills development into their own hands will be tomorrow’s leaders. Without that foundational work on the person, any business tactics and strategy is limited. You need a community of others who understand your struggles, who share a common mindset and who can give you the feedback and encouragement you need. Once you show the world you deliver results and execute well, then you can stop pretending you don’t have a real life.
For me, my family, my friends, my freedom, and my ability to run my company on my terms gives me more wealth than a high paying corporate gig ever could.
Don’t be afraid to think critically and question what elected officials do while representing you in Washington. I realized that a housekeeper was a small price to pay for peace under our roof.  I hired a housekeeper and I taught my sons how to do the dishes and the laundry.
