  5. 5. 1. Who are You?•  "I Am Not My Hair" is a song by American soul-R&B singer India Arie from her third studio album, Testimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationship (2006).
  6. 6. India Arie - Video Clip
  7. 7. •  I am not my colour, my skin, my parents, my community, my mistakes, my economics and/or my financial situation (status), my outside, etc.•  I am who I want to be, and therefore, what I am is my decision, my responsibility, my choice, my dream.•  And if I want to, I can change it through a ‘one minute’ split decision, just like that.•  I am what I want to be.
  8. 8. 2. Jack Canfields Success Principles•  The first Success Principle in the book is TAKE 100% RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE!•  No one owes you anything; you are not entitled to a free ride at work, at home, in school, on the playing field …whatever your playing field may be, or in your relationships with others or with your Creator.
  9. 9. •  What you receive are gifts, what you do with those gifts is up to you, be them financial, spiritual, intangible or tangible.•  Some of those gifts may have double edges but they are still a viable source of learning and growing and accepting what this life has in store for you, at full face value and riding it through to the end.
  10. 10. 3. No One Owes You As Much As You Owe Yourself•  During my travels, I’ve been well blessed to have met people from different nationalities, cultures, races, ethnicities, and any other grouping you’d like to consider and regardless of their differences, I find nearly everyone is looking for happiness.•  After all, what is life without a bit of happiness?•  However, another common thread seems to be running through the lives of so many as well.
  11. 11. •  They’re looking to be repaid for some type of offense committed against them, real or imagined; either way they feel they’re owed something.•  Indeed, there’s a debt to be paid or some reason to get even.•  For some it’s their parents who couldn’t afford to send them to university or buy them their first car, jacket, etc. when times were hard.•  For others it may be a spouse or a loved one whom they feel betrayed their trust.
  12. 12. •  Still for others it may be a brother or sister or friend who offended them in some shape or form, knowingly or unknowingly.•  This debt or grudge, real or perceived, is carried through life for years.•  And over the course of years, resentment, anger, and frustration attaches itself to this debt.•  Oftentimes, these bitter roots spill over or entwine themselves in other areas of their lives.•  I’m sure you know the type; the angry at the world, ill-tempered person, who’s just a “joy” to be around.
  13. 13. Pursuit of happiness
  14. 14. 4. The pursuit of happyness (2006) – Will Smith•  Don’t ever let somebody tell you that you can’t do something.•  Not even me. Okay.•  You got a dream. You got to protect it.•  People can’t do something themselves•  They want to tell you that you can’t do it.•  You want something.•  Got get it. Period.
  15. 15. Coach Carter
  16. 16. 5. Our deepest fear – Marianne Williamson•  Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.•  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.•  It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
  17. 17. •  We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?”•  ”Actually, who are you not to be?•  Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.•  There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking … so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
  18. 18. •  We were born to make manifest the glory that is within us.•  It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.•  And as we let our own light shine, … we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.•  As we are liberated from our own fear, … our presence automatically liberates others.
  19. 19. Conclusion
