So are you ready to do it? It really is as simple as believing you will be successful. It’s a shift in your mindset, of feeling worthy that you can have it all and that you deserve it all. There are many forms of success. One can say that success is about having a good paying job, owning a home, having a large family and a few vacations a year. Another might say success is solely about how much money they have. To me, success is more spiritual. It’s about owning my self worth and living as it has already happened.
It’s not about how you appear to others that makes you successful. Not to your family, not to your friends, not even to your boss. It’s all about how YOU feel and what moves and truly inspires YOU…your being! THAT is success.
I was at a dinner party the other night and I asked everyone at the table, “What is success to you?” One person answered, “Success is paying my bills and feeling good about what I do every day.” Another replied with, “Success is the creation of my child.” Still, another responded with, “Success is my way of being.”
My life is now filled with connection from so many different venues. I feel successful in who I am… just as I am. To me success = being peaceful inside and I am peaceful right now. It’s taken me a while to get here and it is a daily journey. I don’t feel this way every day, but I appreciate the days that I do. I revel in them. Every day is a gift and a new beginning for success! Life wants us to thrive, so it’s up to us to choose to believe it. Do you?
Share with us your idea of what success has been to you up to now and how this article will shape your view of success for the future. Turn the key, unlock the blocks and find your success. It’s right there; it always has been.

Everybody expects their first kiss to be this monumental moment when gravity miraculously stops and you find yourself floating above the ground and gasping for air. Who even decided that it was supposed to be like that? I never understood the appeal.
Getting swept off your feet inevitably ends in a painful fall and having your breath taken away is a guaranteed trip to the emergency room. For a close friend of mine, it literally was a trip to the hospital, but not because she was gasping for air. Rather, because she woke up the next morning with a small bump on her lip after some eighth-grade stud took her kissing virginity. When her dermatologist quickly diagnosed this nasty little thing as a flat wart, my friend was sent home with a very strong cream to apply on the affected area before bedtime.
Less than 24 hours later, I received a call from a panicking teenager who insisted that her lips had tripled in size. When I entered my friend’s apartment with a sympathy tub of rocky road ice cream, and got my first glimpse of her blowfish lips, I realized that her mini tantrum was completely justified.
Another week went by, and the lip swelling only got worse, and was eventually accompanied by spiking. It was discovered that the severe reactions were side effects from the cream that was being used to treat the flat wart, which turned out to be a pimple according to the results of the biopsy. This cream that destroyed my friends mucosal membrane (particularly her lips) and compromised her good health is now recognized as extremely hazardous to the human body and is prescribed with great caution by doctors. More recent medical research has shown that the strong concentration of harmful chemicals in the formula can be “criminally dangerous” when applied to specific areas.
Unfortunately, so many of the ingredients in body and skincare products we use daily contain ingredients that are identical to those in the cream that my friend applied to her “wart”. Some of them are Paraben based, meaning they contain chemicals like Methylparaben, Propylparaben, IIsoparaben, Butylparaben. Phthalates are additional chemicals that should be avoided at all costs. It is outrageous that there are only minimal efforts made to expose the important truths behind the products we use, and even more astonishing that the majority of the products do more harm to us than they do good.
Our skin is a major player in our first line of defense, constantly fighting off harmful bacteria and toxins that our bodies come into contact with every day. So while we all want soft, clear, and youthful looking skin, we sometimes fail to remember that keeping our skin healthy has greater benefits than those at the aesthetic level! It is important to treat it with the proper care that it deserves by introducing treatments into our cleansing regiments that keep our skin clean without a toxic solution. It is counterproductive to clean your face with products that only contaminate your skin more in the end!

I am social, but very much so on my terms. My independent nature can turn day in and day out, relationships into work. Although I love hosting a cocktail party, attending an intimate dinner, or just making small talk with the older couple sitting at the bar, I noticed I was declining invitations left and right.
And lets face it; there are those very chilly late December nights that are not conducive to going out, especially after a long week of work. The last thing a lady wants to do is rush home to change, powder her nose, and re-heat a curl in her hair. And this was just the case last December when I found myself on the phone with my mother, complaining about having a dinner invitation and lacking the energy. She simply said, “Oh Sutton, just say yes and have fun!”
And with that, I bit the inside of my cheek, mixed a stiff drink, and committed to the required stages of primping. I figured a fun hairdo, along with the gin, would be a sure fire way to get me excited. Well it failed, and I was late to dinner.
But within five minutes of walking in the door, I was into another drink and in deep conversation with new and old friends. In between stories I sat back in my chair to observe the room. And at that moment I had to smile at myself for being so happy when just an hour earlier, I was dead set on a date with my pajamas and a movie.
It was one of those moments when I realized that at this point in my life, I will practically never say “yes” to something I would regret (except for that extra martini). Whether it is dinner with friends, a long run in the park, or a trip to Brooklyn, I decided to just say “yes” to everything.
Once I made the conscious decision to do so, I realized just how often I was saying “no”. My inner loner personality never wanted to commit to anything, because heaven forbid I would rather be doing something else, even if it was nothing at all. But at the end of the day, it is

Trust. Does it exist in Corporate America?
I sat at lunch today with my mentor, Valerie Coffin. She is a woman who had known me as a young boy, who watched me begin my career in the company I now own, who guided me through some of my most challenging and rewarding times as a corporate executive and who I miss very much since her retirement. She was a leader of people and possessed the unique set of skills required to move our company forward as its President, the position she served for the final five years of her full-time employment with the company.
We caught up, talked about our families and reflected on our past. We always had such a fantastic time working together and our periodic lunches are a highlight of mine. We spoke of the company, identified what remains the same as well as how it has changed. She spent some time pointing out how I have been able to effectively influence the company’s direction. Valerie is pleased to have been an influential part of the leader I have become.
Then we spoke of trust.
She felt blessed throughout her 30+ years with my company. She loved the people she worked with and felt fortunate to have built trusting relationships that transcended the typical employee-employer realm. I did not take for granted that we shared that trust.
She spoke of the fun and success she had as she worked to build the organization with her team. She spoke of her boss Stan, one of the founders of the company. He earned her trust while she, in turn, earned his. Valerie trusted him with her corporate life. All of his employees trusted him this way.
She remembered participating in a “Key Executive” group. Her group-mates spoke of security, trust and employment contracts. They asked her if she had one. She said “No”. She trusted her mentor to take care of her as time went on. She trusted her instincts. She felt safe. They thought she was crazy. They felt she was vulnerable. In typical corporate America, they were right. But they didn’t understand the bond of trust created between her and Stan, her boss/mentor. She spoke of the special qualities she saw in Stan. She remembered how he built similar trust between himself and all of those with whom he employed.
I wonder if this kind of trust is gone in our company; it would make me sad if it was gone. The company is much larger these days and employees are litigious. It is increasingly difficult to “take care of people” without creating liability and dissention among your team. However, it is still very possible to trust and be trusted.
Inside of me is a need to demonstrate the same kind of trust Valerie experienced between herself and Stan. I believe I can do that and have much in common with Stan, my father. I look forward to the responsibility of building or maintaining that trust with the key people in my life. It is a wonderful character trait (both personal and corporate) to emulate.
Valerie has always been taken care of by my father. And now, the least I (and my partners) can do is to continue to show her how valued she was, is and always will be. It feels good to be trusted by Val. It feels good to be trusted by others as well.
