There are always things that are beyond your control. One can always deal with them by taking everything in stride without having to be brought low. Reacting positively is a good thing to nurture in one’s character. Your attitude is the one thing you have control over. It can be the deciding factor for you to come out on top of every situation.
“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” – Maya Angelou
Going through a challenging time?
Let this week’s Shareable Image motivate, encourage and uplift you.
The courage that counts. “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill A Churchillism attributed to Winston Churchill for his relentless energy in getting things done. With his experience in peace and war, he understood the need for getting things done and keeping them that way. “Keep buggering on” or KBO is how he ended almost every phone call. It aptly describes this attitude.
“Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.” – Inspirational words from J.K. Rowling on how she dealt with hitting rock bottom, which resulted in the creation of the successful Harry Potter book series with worldwide-following that boasts of movies met with multi-million dollar world-wide box-office success, toys and hundreds of Harry Potter fan memorabilia.
At this one-of-a-kind event, you'll have a chance to meet several of us authors in the business and non-fiction fields, including bestselling author Marci Shimoff and yours truly.
Of course, I'm inviting you to come out and support my new book, Beyond Sugar Shock, which will be officially released two days later.
Here's how the Betseller Book Launch Party works. You can attend for free, but what you'll do is purchase two books on Amazon that day (see details below).
Then, you'll be able to share our (the authors') excitement and join in the celebration as our books blast to the top of the Amazon.com bestseller charts right there at the party. Isn't this an innovative idea for a party?
Special thanks to Alicia Dunams, a self-publishing expert and creator of the Bestseller in A Weekend business program. This Bestseller Book Launch Party is her brainchild.
Please note that this Bestseller Book Launch Party is not a book signing — but I'll be glad to sign books — as many as you buy.
Remember, you'll be an integral part of our success by purchasing two of the featured authors' books on Amazon.com on May 30, 2012, anytime between 12:01 am – 11:59 pm.
Again, I'm inviting you to get my book, Beyond Sugar Shock, during that time. (If you're not in San Francisco, I urge you to wait until June 5 to buy my book, because that's when we're holding the official book launch.)
To receive complimentary admission to the Bestseller Book Party:
1) You must show proof that you purchased 2 of the featured authors' books on May 30, 2012 when you arrive at the registration table. A print-out of an Amazon.com receipt will suffice. Or…
2) Purchase 2 of the featured authors' books (think: my book, please!) at the event between 6 and 9pm. I'll be there with my new laptop, so you can buy them with me watching, if you like. (I'll be happy to post for a photo, if you like too.) You must show proof of purchase before you leave the party.
To join the other authors and me at the Bestseller Book Launch Party fun on Wed., May 30 in San Francisco, sign up here.
Special thanks to USA Today for the Best-Selling Books image. Hope it was okay to use! If not, let me know and I'll promptly take it down!

Are you weighed down by worries about your finances? Are you wondering how you'll be able to buy memorable holiday gifts for your loved ones? Do you want — or even yearn — for something to help you to turn your money situation around?
The caring, charismatic Cheryl — who I was thrilled to meet at the fabulous Hay House Movers & Shakers conference last weekend — offered a great, simple tip on Twitter yesterday. (You can follow her there @coachoncall.)
This pointer is so valuable that I felt compelled to share it here, giving it a post on this Sugar Shock Blog. Cheryl tweeted:
"$$ woes? Repeat all day: Abundance flows into my life in surprising & miraculous ways every day."
Thank you, Cheryl, for this inspirational tweet! I already have it posted to my computer, along with some Louise Hay affirmations.
How do you feel after repeating Cheryl's affirmation 10 times or more? Reassured, I'm willing to bet!
Join the discussion I just began over at Facebook. What plans do you have to protect yourself from abusing your body during the holidays? Get my tips, too.
I also encourage you to follow me now on Twitter, where you'll get to read tweets that link to articles or posts I've written on my new Huffington Post blog, my Smart Habits of Highly Successful People blog at Psychology Today or this Sugar Shock Blog. You'll also learn about other interesting articles by empowering experts I admire.
When you follow me on Twitter, you'll also get to read retweets from inspiring people, motivational quotes and get updates about exciting guests appearing on my Gab With the Gurus Radio Show and much more.
Perhaps you'd like more support to kick your sugar habit.
To get involved in a community of people who are also seeking to break free from their sugar addiction, join the new Stop Sugar Shock social network, which I co-founded with fellow life coach James Hahn, II, also a former sugar addict. (His story is quite inspiring — he shed over 100 pounds by removing sugar from his diet.)
The Stop Sugar Shock community is hosted at Ning, where you can set up a profile, post photos, watch videos and learn about events.
Most importantly, you can have discussions with your fellow would-be sugar kickers and get tips and inspiration from both James and me.
The Stop Sugar Shock social network is replacing KickSugar, which is at Yahoo, where it has been running since Nov. 2002.
I still invite you to join KickSugar, because when you join, you'll get a number of emails with all kinds of helpful pointers such as what to have for breakfast and how to learn if you have hypoglycemia.
Of course, you may be wondering how to remember to get my inspirational tips, articles and more. It's easy. Just:
