You know the character of Eeyore in the Winnie the Pooh stories – the eternal pessimistic donkey? His view is that nothing good happens – nothing works out. Negative, negative, negative.

What Is Your Reality Show?

The airwaves are filled with reality shows – from jungle survival to bad behavior in group houses to poorly behaving entitled housewives.

Young or Old – Don’t Wait To Live Your Greatness

Greatness has nothing to do with age.
