Susannah, that's SO true. I feel the same. I really want to be a role model to my son and the other little people in my life.

It is time to stop listening to that voice and start telling it where to go!

First, I love Will Smith. And this makes me love him more. Thanks for sharing!

That's one reason I want to run, to teach my daughter that you can train yourself to do anything, and not give up.

That was wonderful!

I hear that little voice all the time... It's time I stopped listening.

I have never seen this clip. I am a huge admirer of will smith though. I believe that he is a great role model for our kids. I love his music.

Thanks for sharing this link. Almost always the most powerful ideas are the simplest ones. Having just run a 5km race (and overcome that little gremlin voice to come in 7 minutes under my previous time and 5 minutes off my expected time!) I can attest that learning to ignore that little voice does spill into other parts of my life. As for reading, it has been a lifelong passion that has probably saved my life now and again.

And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. Anais Nin

I just wanted to share this video I saw tonight:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=KEMEBBwO6J8

In my short 2 1/2 weeks as a runner, I already feel the benefits that Mr. Smith speaks about. Self-confidence, determination, and pride are slowly spilling over from my runs into other areas of my life. I didn't expect that.

So this video encouraged me tonight - wanted to pass it on.
