Hi all! Happy Monday! How was the weekend? Tired? Need a little get up and go? Well try this on for size.

Ella, the crack assistant, sent me this video the other day of Oprah talking to actress Viola Davis about her life-long struggles with low self-esteem. I found it so interesting, listening to this woman who is on top of the world, recognized as one of the best in her field after her turn in the blockbuster movie, The Help, talk about being almost crippled by what other people thought of her.

Many of us have been there before haven’t we? Whether in a new job or neighborhood, we want so badly to be liked but you have to take a moment and get real. How much time are you willing to spend to make that happen?

So sit back and take a listen to today’s Monday Morning Motivation, then repeat after me..
