When are you going to stop pretending that you're not special?

I read a book a week in 2012. It's a habit I have now been following for over 30 years.  My love of books and writing is undiminished!

There were 9 standouts for me:

Abundance by Peter H. Diamandis, and Steven Kotler.

Agenda for a New Economy: From Phantom Wealth to Real Wealth by David C. Korten

Global Citizens by Mark Gerzon.

Intentionomics® the impact of your intentions on living a happy, flourishing and prosperous life by my friend and colleague David Penglase.

Resilience by Andrew Zolli and Ann Marie Healy.

The 10 Second Philosophy® by Derek Mills.

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman.

Wilful Blindness by Margaret Heffernan.

Word of Mouth Marketing by Andy Sernovitz.

I also re-read Do the work (twice!) by Steven Pressfield which is the book that helps me greatly to welcome, fight, and overcome resistance.

My book this week has been Seth Godin's latest The Icarus Deception - how high will you fly? which like all of Seth's work has got me thinking and further ignited my passion to bring my art to the world and to help you bring yours.

One line from Seth jumped out at me "Stop Pretending You're Not Special."

Like every person You're Special.  Will 2013 be the year you bring everything you've got to everything you do?  And why not?  Stop pretending!

May my story below inspire you.
