My good friend and book editor, Suzanne Kingsbury, just sent me this video link...

My first reaction to this clip was one of anger—how can people be so stupid and judgmental and intolerant in the year 2014?

Then I realized there will always be stupid, judgmental, intolerant people who will criticize us for being too thin and sexy or too fat and dominant.  It is impossible to get it right, if you are living up to someone else’s expectations.

This is the point I want to make today and for always: set your own standard for who YOU want to be, not who someone else wants you to be.  Yes, you.  Not your mom, or dad, or significant other.  Figure out what is important to you and then be that person.  Then damn the “them” for not being happy with your attitude or your look or your approach. So, how do you figure out the YOU that’s right for YOU?  You need a plan and I’m in the process of getting you one that is custom-tailored just for you. FG Press has set an April publishing date for my upcoming book, Sleep Your Way to the Top (and other myths about business success), and you can email me today to get on the list for a special special pre-order copy. Because let’s face it, sleeping your way to the top sounds a bit radical and, actually, it’s not even possible. But here's the book that gives you an alternative (kick-ass) plan to getting to the “top” of your choice. Remember to be confident in you, regardless of whether you like to dance naked with stuffed bears or lecture the Senate on foreign policy.  If it is what you want, it looks good…on YOU!
