Friday, August 28, 2009 - Today's Words of Inspiration and TWO giveaways!

I apologize for the delay in getting 'Today's Words of Inspiration' live. As I mentioned yesterday I spent today at Mashable's Summer of Social Good Conference held at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. (It was actually my first time ever entering the 'Y'). Ascending Butterfly recently launched it's Facebook presence, and it was wonderful to have the opportunity to listen to Randi Zuckerberg, Marketing Director, Facebook teach us how not only Facebook has connected people globally, but how to better maximize our presence and reach; and make the experience more rewarding for us and for our readers.

It was an enlightening experience exploring the ways that social media can be used to connect the world globally for GOOD. The word 'Slacktivism' was thrown around quite a bit during the presentations and it made me ponder, am I doing enough?

It's not too late to participate, and thanks to Mashable you can even see the conference live on the web HERE!

In honor of the Social Good Conference let's make Today's Words of Inspiration an exploration of what we can do to help others. Whether it's locally or globally or better still both, find your voice, find a way to make a difference that truly inspires you.

And while there are many ways to get involved, this one is my personal favorite:

Want to donate, but don’t have the money to do so? We have a simple solution: Retweet!. All 100 Ford Fiesta Agents are donating money to the Summer of Social Good for retweets of three Mashable posts. The first post in the series raised $1,000 for the campaign and the second post, “Top 10 YouTube Videos for Social Good" has a little over 1,000 retweets to go until it raises another $3,000. The third post in the series will be released once the second hits 2,000 retweets. So don't be a 'slackativist', ReTweet NOW!

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I make my world a better place through focused action.'

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
