So, I’m Wearing My Pink Ribbon

October is breast cancer awareness month and everywhere you turn you are breastcancer gloves 236x300 So, Im Wearing My Pink Ribbonseeing Pink ribbons. Yet with all the awareness breast cancer receives it is still one of the top killers of women ages 20-59. It been 20 years since the first pink ribbon appeared and in that time the number of women who have died of breast cancer has not been significantly reduced.

When we see the pink ribbon or hear about a program to support breast cancer us ladies are more likely to give. We give because breast cancer is not something we’d like to have or we know someone who has affected by breast cancer. Today there are hundreds of breast cancer charities in America today, but before you give please check them out. Sadly there are some scammers out there who just take your money and/or give a small percentage to support breast cancer or inexperienced do gooders who end up spending more money promoting the event than donating.  Before you give, check out your charity. A good source is Charity Navigator.  Also be careful with the pink ribbon merchandise.  Where does your pink money go? Just because it has a ribbon on it doesn’t mean any of the money is going to breast cancer.

I’d love to hear your opinion on breast cancer marketing. Are you someone who is more likely to give when you see the pink ribbon?

Are You Willing? 3 Committments That Will Help

This month my mantra is feel the fear and do it any way. That means fear of all things — workouts, eating, my career and my personal life MP900400680 200x300 Are You Willing? 3 Committments That Will Help and if I have time I may even take on my fear of snakes.  I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching on the matter and I really think, it comes down to these core principles.

  • Make the commitment — decide that this is what you want to do and do whatever it takes to make it happen. Everything comes to fruition when you commit.
  • Be willing to be mentored — listen to the things they say and be willing to take action based on their advice. When seeking a mentor you want to find someone who can see in you what you can’t see in yourself.
  • Surround yourself with greatness — be in the company of those who are doing what you want to be doing and just observe their actions, their habits and take notes on how you can apply to your life.

The 3 core principles will help you to break through those nagging fears that are preventing you from living your life and achieving all that you know you can accomplish.
