The PITCH Video … On Hold Until Perfected

For a number of reasons, I used to hate getting my picture taken.  Now I don’t hate it, but I’m still not overly fond of it. Plus, I have a natural preference to work behind the scenes, especially as the writer these days.

But since my goal is to present on the TED Talk stage my “Idea Worth Spreading” … the Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle concept because of its importance to many people, including to those who may not read the books, I am grateful to be growing more comfortable putting myself in front of a camera and on stage as well as learning how to present at the TED Talk professional level.

Supported by my previous Toastmasters and other experiences that put me front and centre to a group of people, I am indebted, yet I also must thank Jeremey Donavan for his insightful, thorough, and helpful book, “How To Deliver A TED Talk, Secrets of the World’s Most Inspiring Presentations.”

And since my other video attempts do not yet reflect my ideal, I have chosen to  delete them and wait until I have perfected The Pitch video for you.

Thanks for your interest, dropping by, and your patience.

If You WANT TO KNOW How Trump’s Latest Act Is Going To Affect Canadians

Check these quotes out and click on the link to read the full New York Times article.

“But for Canadians, the tariffs broke fundamental matters of trust, respect and the rule of law, and seemed to signal the beginning of the end; Nafta wouldn’t die in one day, it appeared, but in a series of humiliating and bewildering tweets and diktats that would ultimately harm millions of Canadian working families.”

Freeland said she had recently come across a “terrifying” quote from Adolf Hitler, explaining his rise to power in Germany in a time of economic uncertainty and grievance. “I will tell you what has carried me to the position I have reached,” Hitler had said. “Our political problems appeared complicated. The German people could make nothing of them. … I, on the other hand … reduced them to the simplest terms. The masses realized this and followed me.”

She leaned forward, a look of concern in her eyes. “How do you attract voters and public support compared with the flashiness of exciting, chaotic, fact-ignoring populism?” she asked. “The reason Hitler won was because all of the other politicians were giving complicated and difficult explanations about difficult things. Hitler just told people simple things that they wanted to hear.”

RING BELLS HERE TOO … HOW ABOUT WITH DOUG FORD’S PROMISES AND WIN?

Much change on the horizon and not for the better, as with any relationship, when money is the primary focus and motivator. Prayers for us all.

WHAT’S HAPPENING To Us and Our Brains?

“… On a biological as well as a cultural level such brain state changes affect learning, socialization, recreation, partnering, parenting, and creativity – in essence all factors that make a society and culture … we now see that excessive usage of digital media has a concrete relationship to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, and mood deregulation including anxiety, depression, and anger management, other forms of addiction, and all behaviors on the obsessive-compulsive spectrum.”

“4000 Canadians COMMIT SUICIDE Every Year”

“According to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, 4000 Canadians die by suicide each year.” Georgina Advocate, Thursday June 7, 2018

Recently, a young woman’s body was discovered on a public school ground. Her body was positioned sitting serenely against a school fence. Unfortunately, a nine-year old boy discovered her.

In this week’s local paper, the Georgina Advocate, the front page picture revealed a cascade of balloons being released over the water for Lydia Tranter’s memorial.

In the article, people talked about how much she laughed and how friendly she was, but appearances, as always can be deceiving.

Personally I have known both highly extroverted and introverted people who talked about suicide, indirectly and not, some who attempted, and sadly those who successfully used suicide as a way out of circumstances they could not see a way out of.

Fortunately, I have been fortunate to even stop a few such incidents, though I did fail with one, but as a psychiatrist once told me about someone I was trying to help, if someone truly wants to commit suicide he or she will succeed.

So, the answer is we have to help people not want to commit suicide before the choice becomes the only one she or he sees.

There are many signs, including a sense of hopelessness and despair, of which I know quite a bit about. However, I am one of the fortunate ones because, ironically, the large ego I developed to cope with a series of traumatic events, helped me to walk, sometimes even run away from people and circumstances I could not deal with or change and made me feel worse about myself than I already did.

The result from both the traumas and the constant  leaving people however created a very lonely life.

For me, the healing came, not from medication though to each their own, but first from learning about others who had gone through what I had or who studied the impact such experiences have on people.

What I learned inspired me to search for an answer that would diminish and even prevent people from not just harming themselves, but also from not realizing their potential, which also leads to a sense of unfulfillment and depression.

I realized, that if I could break the negative hold my experiences manifested, other people could also develop the ability to respect themselves highly enough and would be empowered to forge ahead, get the help they need, and would also be respectful and compassionate enough to help other people, as well as, not inflict unnecessary harm.

For me, the ultimate salve for the pain and the loneliness though has been through opening myself up spiritually. Exploring many different beliefs from new age to Buddhism and many others helped, but did not satisfy as did reading an amplified Bible and developing a relationship with God which has surprisingly filled me with what I have hungered for all of my life.

Regardless of what you or someone you know believes now, there is much to learn about how wonderfully beautiful and unique each of us is and how capable we truly are if we let go of limiting, negative mindsets that tell us we have to be something or someone we are not.

Get the help you need. Or be the encouragement someone else needs.

You matter … We all matter … simply for being a life … for being here … for being who we are.

My condolences to Lydia’s and anyone’s loved ones whose life was cut short by not feeling they were enough.

Respectfully and with love,
