Go Chicks GO!

So did you watch the Grammy's last night?! Even if you didn't, I'm sure by now you heard that the Dixie chicks just couldn't STOP winning awards.

What I think was the funniest was when they won in the category of best country album and country performance by a duo or group with vocal. All this when MOST country stations have banned them. If you watch their documentary, Shut Up And Sing, you'll see that the chicks didn't even really know what category of music they belonged in once country started to disown them.

I just read on that following:

CMT has announced that the Dixie Chicks’ “Not Ready to Make Nice” video is a first round nominee in three categories for the upcoming 2007 CMT Music Awards: Video of the Year, Group Video of the Year, and Video Director of the Year (Sophie Muller). Fan voting to narrow the eight initial nominees in each category down to the final four nominees takes place through Feb 23rd . You can vote HERE.

I can't wait for the CMT awards. NOW that should be an interesting show to watch!!

Just goes to show you that if you love and believe in what you're doing...don't give up! EVEN when it looks darker than you ever thought possible. Believe in yourself, believe in your dreams....AND ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! Just ask the Dixie Chicks!

The Secret

There's a concept I've held now for several years. I've read about these ideas in books like The Game Of Life And How To Play It and Think and Grow Rich.

Ideas and concepts like you should visualize what you want in your life. To be grateful for what you have, and believe that you deserve to live a happy successful life.

Recently I became aware of a video out there called The Secret. I watched it once and I knew this was a video I probably should watch a few times a month. This last week the people who came together to create the DVD The Secret were on Oprah.

I've started to use the principles in the Secret and I'm actually starting to see results in my own life. I talk to other people about this idea and over and over again I hear that it sounds like a great concept but it's just so hard to keep in that frame of mind and have that positive attitude all the time ESPECIALLY when you're down and depressed.

Why is it so much easier to be negative? Why does are mind so easily flip to the worse that could happen instead of us thinking about the good that can come from a not so favorable situation?

I think what I like about this DVD so much are the people who are in it are very open and honest about the past they came from. They aren't people who have always been happy and financial well off. They are drug dealers, those who came from financial poverty and others will a very low self-concept of themselves. At one point in each of these peoples lives they came to believe they were worth all the good there is in life, and they started visualize what they wanted to come into their life, and those things started to happen.

The other thing I like about this DVD is that once you watch it, you don't have to buy anything else. You just have to live the principles that are presented to you. It's that simple. You can even watch this video online.

If you're looking for a positive change in your life in 2007 check out The Secret Video:
