I'm the Keynote Speaker...

Getting ready to take the stage at Odyssey, at the Odyssey Networks in Naples, Florida, and I just want to talk to you guys for a second about

Number one, what an amazing event; 600 of the most powerful women. Oh my God, so fabulous.

But also it's so nerve racking by being the keynote speaker! So what do you do with nervousness? Well, I'll tell you the first thing I do is, I keep saying to myself, 'in one hour, this'll all be over, in hour, this'll all be over'.

Number two, I say to myself, 'just be the best that you can be, you ...

Ready, Set, Go for Your Goals!

You just left an exciting motivational event -- now what??

What is the best thing to do when you leave a function full of energy and passion?

Be smart!

Make the momentum that comes from that motivational environment work for you.

First, make a short term, doable goal that stretches you. This will give you confidence and get you started you doing more and thinking bigger than you did before.

When we leave these events it feels so good.

"No's" bounce off your ears and "Yeses" are attracted to you.

Take the enthusiasm and give it to others as a gift. People love enthusiasm!

When you make the goal make sure it is something you can control.

Work the numbers: you can not control peoples' answers, but you can control your asking of the questions.

Remember, many things can seem hard until you do them over and over - then the same things become easy.

What are you going to make happen RIGHT NOW?

Your success is hidden in your DAILY WORK.

My Trip to Robben Island

Woke up this morning; of course I have to get ready for the time change! I just could not get to sleep until 5:39 a.m.! Could NOT sleep! Maybe it was working out on the treadmill for an hour from 2:45 - 3:45 am. Or maybe it was because the concierge asked me if I wanted a cup of cappuccino when I got to my room and I could not resist. But I was wide awake!

But anyway, I woke up to an absolutely beautiful day here in South Africa. The weather really does change here very rapidly within a 24 hour period. It is really phenomenal to experience all different types of weather in the same day. I had a beautiful breakfast here in the Mount Nelson Hotel in Capetown and then left to go to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years; but 18 of those years were in hard labor. You guys, you haven't experienced a prison tour until you have had a tour by ex-prisoners. Former political prisoners show you around Robben Island.

First you take a catamaran over to the island then you get on a bus to tour the island, and then to Robben Island. Robben Island has a very long history; it was first a leprosy camp. Nelson Mandela experienced 18 years of eating the exact same food every day while he worked in the lime quarry. The political prisoners were overseen by the common prisoners; the worst thing to be was a political prisoner. If a political prisoner even acted like he was getting tired, he was tortured. Not beaten or punished, tortured by the common prisoners. It is amazing to see and understand all that has gone on and realize that Nelson Mandela was only freed in 1990. I hope that you take some time to read about Robben Island and Nelson Mandela; it is such a life-changing experience just to even know what he went through because he stood by his principles.

Also, tonight, we had a had a phenomenal welcome Country Dinner where I sat at a table with four different National Sales Directors from four different countries. It was amazing.

A slideshow of my trip will be posted here very soon; and will be continually updated. Stay tuned!

My First Full Day in Capetown--Beautiful! Awesome!

Whew! Woke up this morning! Had to get up at 8:30 am after 3 hours sleep to get ready for my car pick-up at 11:00am.

Woke up to a beautiful day in my hotel room at the Twelve Apostles Hotel. Walked out to my exquisite double porch area-fabulous. Got dressed; I absolutely love the smell of the room! Went to a fabulous breakfast that was a full, beautiful amazing spread brunch that was right there in the room! They had everything you want: salmon, eggs, oysters on the half shell, meats and cheeses of every kind, lemon.

At 11:00,myself and Tara, who is president of Mary Kay Europe, came over to the Hotel Mount Nelson, which says it is "Under the Table, but on Top of the World" because Capetown is on this beautiful mountain called Table Mountain.

They brought me to my gorgeous suite with a mini-kitchen and living room, then you step up into a smaller living room, and a full master suite, double sink, full bathroom, full butler's pantry, full everything! Just absolutely gorgeous. The hotel sits on nine acres of land. Absolutely beautiful! I'm going to get some rest to get up at 7 pm to get ready for the "Welcome Banquet" for everyone here.
