Video response to Steve Siebold's Mental Toughness coaching sessions from And I actually say some NICE things about it. emoticon

If you don't want to hit the play button, it's OK... this is the first time I posted a video blog and it's about five minutes long. If I do any in future, I'll probably try to make them shorter!

    Absolutely loved seeing you...super kewl. And everything that was going through my head has already been said. Except perfectionist doesn't describe me, impatient and queen of procrastination. Now to go back and revisit your blogs.

    Yeah with my hearing I did not get every word but I did get some and that part I think is well said. Spark On, my friend!

    Well said, and very well spoken Barb! You have made an awesome debut in a video blog!! Enjoyed hearing your voice and seeing you move, it was like having a conversation with you in my living room!! I couldn't agree more with being kind to yourself. Treating yourself like would treat your best friend is essential to success.
    Spark on indeed!!

    This is terrific: and it's so great to hear your voice! And see your certificate all printed out!!

    The older I get, the more I believe that kindness is the central moral virtue. It never hurts to be kind. And if we are going to be kind to others, we have to begin by filling the well of kindness: being kind to ourselves.

    I'm betting, however, that Steve Siebold would not quarrel with anything you say here. He IS kind. Incredibly so. His tone of voice, his facial expressions . . . the very fact that he had posted so much free material on the internet -- all of that speaks to a generous and kind personality.

    And gotta say I love the irony (I'm sure you do too) that a video blog on mental kindness by a recovering perfectionist required retakes!!

    THAT was awesome! It was so nice to hear you process information, to hear the rhythm of your verbal communication. It will make reading your blogs from now on even better! I'm totally with you about the need for nurturing to overcome the LOUD critical voice that hammers at my heart. So glad to have someone on my journey who understands ... Thanks for sharing ... you did GREAT!

    I usually bypass video blogs, but I can make an exception for relatives. emoticon

    I appreciate your condensed version of the Mental Toughness course, as right now I'm not finding regular time for serious motivational thought. Perfectionism versus "home weight" deserves some contemplation, too; the idea of being able to not track and maintain is very attractive. I just don't trust that *I* can do it.

    My perfectionist tendencies may be weaker than yours, but they're still there. I'm not sure anyone with perfectionist tendencies can ever get rid of them. Perhaps the best we can do is change the focus, and strive for the perfect balance in life rather than striving to be the perfect athlete or the perfect employee.

    Hi Barb....How cool, watching you speak! I admit, I didn't have the time to watch the whole blog, and will get back to it later. But I just wanted to say, you look and sound great!
