I have been listening to motivational speakers lately who are encouraging the listener to “create the reality that he/she wants”. At first, I was unclear what exactly was being advocated, but the more that I listened, the more I agreed with the philosophies that were being set forth. Essentially they were saying the same thing that coaches around the world tell their merging athletes—first imagine your success then make it just like you imagined it.

I was never a member of a high performing sports team and I never had a “hands-on” mentor so I did not have the benefit of coaching. As a mature person, confident in her profession, I find that I still long for the mentoring and comradery inherent in working with a group toward a common goal. It is important to interact with others on multilevels.

There is a need for personal intimacy, professional dynamics and a “family unit” interactions. The personal intimacy is the one that too many neglect. The personal intimacy must start with self-evaluation--- Are you who you want to be? Do you look like you mean to look and do you treat others the way that you mean to? Answering these questions can be the motivation to lose weight, wear makeup or less makeup, change your hairstyle or hair color. It should prompt you to drink more water and less every other liquid. It should prompt you to exercise more and often. It should encourage you to laugh out loud and spend more time with those who love your laugh.If you have not laughed out loud this week, take some time to remember what makes you laugh and if it is legal, go do it. I like swinging on park swings. I like the feeling of flying as the swing goes higher. (Gotta do that soon).

To many, going to church fills their social needs; they are welcomed, expected and loved. Everyone needs that type of “group” approval like the TV show "Cheers".
