Topic of the Week

Learn how one person, committed to

consciousness, can change the planet.

By now I’m sure many of you have heard about the Hay House World Summit starting on June 1st.  The summit brings you over 100 intimate interviews with experts in the self-help field who were asked to provide inspiring stories and practical advice to help you improve your life.  Over the course of ten days, these interviews will be available at no cost to all who tune in to watch and listen.


I’m excited to be a part of a global event designed to raise consciousness.  As of today, there are people from every country signed up to participate in this event – every country on the planet.

For years I’ve said that the greatest contribution we make to humanity is our commitment to grow and evolve – to raise our level of consciousness.  The more conscious we become, the more we care about each other, the planet, all its inhabitants, and ourselves.  When we read books about personal growth, attend workshops and classes that help us to understand ourselves better, and take action to change our lives, we naturally contribute to the betterment of the world.

When I think about people from every corner of the globe investing their precious time in this weeklong program, it gives me hope.  The more people we expose to information that heals, inspires, and promotes growth, the better chance we have of peace on earth.  Think about it.  Imagine how the practice of law would change if more lawyers invested in their own personal development?  How might the healthcare system evolve if more doctors focused on their own self-care?  And what about politics?  What are the chances of the world improving if more politicians developed the courage and fortitude to vote for truth over popularity?

While this idea might seem a bit far-fetched, the reality is that systems like law, medicine, and politics, are made up of individuals.  Those who are brave enough to leave the tribe and reach for a better life give us our greatest chance of survival.  After all, the future of our planet will depend on human beings who wake up and become more self-aware and intentional with their choices.

I choose to believe in the possibility of positive global change.

Please take advantage of the wisdom and experience that will unfold on June 1st.   Whether you listen to an hour, a whole day’s worth of interviews, or the whole week, please join me in supporting the evolution of consciousness.  Let’s get as many people as we can to open their hearts and minds to positive change. Invite a friend or two to join you so you can share what you learn with one another.

You can sign up here.

Thank you for your contribution to making the world a better place for us all. heart-icon#x2665;

Take Action Challenge

As you participate in the Hay House World Summit, write down any advice or wisdom that speaks to you and make a list of at least five things you’ll do to change your life once the summit is over.  Your willingness to be an evolving global citizen matters. Who knows?  We might just change the world in ten days smiley2#x1F600;


This week’s video takes a funny look at the difference between men and women.  You’ll find it here.  Thanks, Nancy!
