I've always believed that referrals and compliments are a true show of the impact you make. It starts with believing in yourself and your mission, but when others start listening, it's flattering and elating.

I'm blessed to share the content below with you as it's evidence that positivity resonates.

new year, new you 2019 - FOX 4 NEWS MORNING SHOW - Kansas City

Our natural tendency in life is to play it safe, do what's comfortable and enjoy simplicity. So why is it that we get a rush when we see something new or watch a story about someone who challenged the norm? It's because we are also extremely curious creatures and the newness, while a bit unnerving, brings immense energy to our lives. Which brings to mind one of my favorite questions: "Why not?"

In this segment on Fox 4 Kansas City, I will explain how the use of the question "Why not?" can bring more joy and satisfaction in your life both from trying new things to challenging norms. Through the use of personal examples and engaging tactics, you can live out your dream life by making yourself ask, "Why not?"

You'll also witness how I used this method to:

- Successfully run the New York City Marathon

- Become a contestant on a nationally televised game show

- Emcee the Kansas City Royals 2015 World Series Parade

agree to disagree - FOX 4 NEWS MORNING SHOW - Kansas City

In our society, nearly everyone has a new megaphone for their opinion and we’ve also become more divisive than ever.

Why?

We’ve fallen into this habit that if your opinion is different than mine, well, then you’re wrong. The art of asking follow up questions to learn about others thoughts or stances on issues is all but lost. Even if you don’t agree at all with where they’re coming from, even after you ask, is ok. The lessons learned and the perspective gained just by having the conversation is worth the time.

THE VALUE OF BEING YOU - FOX 4 NEWS MORNING SHOW - Kansas City

The value of self r-e-s-p-e-c-t

FOX 4 NEWS MORNING SHOW - Kansas City

Ever wonder about that voice that creeps in when things are going well or when you feel the need to make a positive change? The one telling you not to or that you're not good enough so don't bother?
