Thursday's Thoughts - Be Brilliant

She's a free spirit, she's a rock, she's a survivor, a dreamer, a doer and a listener...she's your girlfriend! And what do girlfriends do? They talk about life, laugh, cry, reflect on the past and they share thoughts. Grab a glass of coffee and leave a comment or two. For today's thought... Simon T. Baily says..

"Be Brilliant"

I recently had the opportunity to hear Simon T. Bailey speak at a conference, and since returning home, I've thought of myself no less than Brilliant. Hey, If I don't who else will? Thinking of yourself as brilliant is a mindset, and becoming brilliant is a process as Mr. Bailey puts it. It's something that happens over time, you polish it, work on it, perfect it here and there, and on and on. If you don't continuously look at yourself as something more AND work towards becoming what you envision, you'll never reach your goal or attain something more for yourself. But if you reengage your genius, and relight those fires that fueled you when you were twenty and follow some of Simon's advice, I bet you'll be introducing yourself as "Hello...I'm Sally the Brilliant One" someday soon!!

Simon has just released his newest book entitled....Release your Brilliance (4 steps to transforming your life and revealing your genius to the world), he also has a blog

and an e zine. Visit Simon's website and learn about releasing your own brilliance, because if you don't...nobody's going to do it for you!

  1. That sounds just wonderful!! I'm definitely going to have to do some more research on that =]

  2. Great post! I never thought I was near anything but average. It wasn't until 35 or so...I began to wonder/cultivate...had to give the boot to husband #2 first to really be free to explore ;-)

  3. I love this post Dee, Kelli and I tell each other this all the time! I tell her she's brilliant and she tells me I'm a genius. We started doing this because as we began working together in our art, writing, etsy shop etc... we needed to encourage each other. There's too many other people out there telling you why you can't accomplish something. This way we boosted each other and it makes such a difference.

  4. Hi Trish, I think sometimes we are our worse enemy unfortunately. Glad things turned around with hubby #2.

  5. Thanks Carlynne, friends are amazing aren't they? And you are so right in that everyone has an opinion on why you can't accomplish something. It takes a good friend to boost you through it...congratulations on having Kelli!


Thanks for hanging out with the Girls, let us know what's on your mind...
