The Revolution is Here — Send Your Big Buts Packing

This week, I escaped from the ordinary and hopped on the Metro North train from New Haven into Grand Central in Manhattan. My objective was to attend a taping of the new Lifestyle TV Show – The Revolution and have some fun and catchup with a dear friend. We had a blast at the show and enjoyed the energy of the guests as we sat in the audience. The surprise announcement was guest host, the beautiful and talented Toni Braxton. Toni looks absolutely gorgeous in real life. Plus, I was able to shoot this photo as we were leaving the set. It’s always good to have your camera for an unplanned Kodak moment. This little expediting provided me with an opportunity to add newness into my daily routine. We sometimes complain how predictable life can become, but, it’s entirely up to you and no one else to add novelty and excitement into your life. I want to encourage you to start thinking of activities you can participate in or events you can attend. Perhaps it may require travel, one of my favorite activities. Consider it time to create your own revolution, because as the tag line on the screen says, it’s all about... read more

Discover The Sneaky Reason Why The New Apple iPhone May Cause Your But to Get Big

Hartford, CT – October 23, 2011 – Are you one of the millions of people intimidated by the new iPhone?  You may be fearful of modern day technology and long for things the way they use to be. Unfortunately, the smart phone genie is out of the bottle and this may be the perfect opportunity to overcome your technological big but. Tick Tock, Tick Tock! Your internal clock is telling you time is running out.  The time is here for you to live life on your terms. Fear, bad habits, frustrations and even anxiety are often the cause of many people not achieving their greatness in life. To remedy this, Michelle Greene announces the release of her debut book, “No More Big Buts  – 7 Transformational Steps to Banish Excuses From Your Life.” For many people, excuses can be easily rationalized.  They don’t have valid reasons for not pursuing a dream. They have listened to other people’s opinions and fears instead of believing in themselves and “going for the gold”. You may have resigned yourself to a limiting belief that you are not worthy and your best years are behind you! This is not TRUE. As a matter of fact, accept that the best years of your life are ahead of you, regardless of your age”, noted Greene. From chapter 1, Michelle takes the reader on a familiar journey of making a New Year’s resolution and how often these are unfulfilled. What people have misunderstood is that oftentimes when setting a New Year’s resolution or goal for yourself, it requires CHANGE. Greene states “Change is optional. When people... read more

Has Your Imagination Become Rusty?

EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 4: PREDICT YOUR FUTURE BY IMAGINING IT The most exciting way to predict your future is to create it.  As a child, it is highly likely that you dreamed what your life would be like when you grew up.  You had a vivid imagination throughout your childhood and daydreaming meant the world to you during that time. Somehow, along life’s journey, imagination became less and less important, yet it is one of our mental faculties and the foundation of all that we want to be, do and have. Your thoughts and ideas are the result of your wonderful imagination.  I sincerely believe that the non-use of imagination can be considered one of the great tragedies of adulthood.  As we cross the bridge from childhood to adulthood, we have a tendency to leave our creativity behind. We accept the role of being a responsible adult and slowly forget about the exciting dreams and plans we had as children. Has your imagination disappeared completely to the point where you no longer know what you want?  Perhaps your day-to-day obligations of adulthood have held your imagination hostage. Fortunately, your dreams and desires are still buried inside you and they are longing to be released and make you proud. If you randomly ask one hundred people what they want, you will be surprised at how many cannot rattle off with conviction what exactly they want. It is because having a lack of clarity causes you to miss opportunities, which may be right under your nose.  These very opportunities can pave the way toward helping you get what you want because,... read more

Get Results Even If You’re Afraid

EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 3: LIONS, AND TIGERS AND BEARS, OH MY! Several big buts are formed because of the fears we have, whether real or imagined.  These can be a fear of the future, fear of change, fear of looking stupid, or a myriad of other fears.  Many people are desperate, frustrated and frightened because they live with imaginary pictures of themselves and their view of the world, rather than realizing and accepting their true nature. At one time or another, fear is a constraint that everyone experiences in varying degrees.  The paralyzing effect, which is produced by fear, causes millions of well-meaning people to be reluctant to do anything new or to stretch beyond what they are used to doing. Despite how much pain and suffering these people are currently experiencing, and as much as they may be reluctant to admit it, they are comfortable with the status quo because the thought of the unknown, or making a change is simply too great a risk for them. They settle for the life they know rather than risk the unknown.  At the forefront of several reasons why we feel we can’t do something or we put it off for “someday” is the fear hiding inside us.  I was fearful that my high school English teachers would be going through my book and highlighting my grammatical errors with that dreaded red pen.  I had an unrealistic vision that I wasn’t good enough or smart enough to be an author. Nonetheless, this is one of the fears that so many people, especially women, have of not being good enough.  Countless girls... read more

My First Book Signing

Today, I had the pleasure of attending my first book signing.  My wonderful husband Sam, set it up through  contacts at his employer.  I had a warm reception from his co-workers and enjoyed meeting them face to face. A common question was… “what made you write the book?” Basically, it was a result of wanting to know why I was stuck and how I continually used excuses, affectionately called ‘big buts’.  Awareness is the first step is figuring out why you do the things you do. I realized over the years, I had absorbed tons of information, but I didn’t apply it.  I used several excuses such as, other people have done that before, or it won’t work.  Basically, I rationalized all the reasons why I shouldn’t take action. I look forward to several more book signings to get the message of the book out, which is “the best years of your life are ahead of you once you banish your big buts.... read more
