Tourette Syndrome Talk - Belief

Tourette Syndrome Talk - Belief

“The things we believe about ourselves always prove to be true.”

That statement, from my program #DOTHEIMPOSSIBLE, can be hard to understand. After all, it would be very easy to debate the point. I guess that’s why I felt it was necessary to provide examples from my life after I made the statement.

For today’s #TouretteTalk I’ve decided to share a short video clip from my talk about why, and how, what we believe can define the way we see ourselves, the actions we take - virtually everything in our lives…

#MotivationMonday - Ignore or Acknowledge Your Challenge?

It’s a glorious Monday here in Nashville, TN this morning. I hope it is where you are, too.

In today’s #MotivationMonday video, I tackle two questions…

Think of it like this…I already can’t control some of my movements or vocalizations, and now someone wants to point at me and laugh because of them.

But I don’t bring this up because I want to discuss that it’s not fair to have Tourette Syndrome. I’ve already made the point (in another #TouretteTalk article) that life isn’t fair. Besides, thinking about how unfair it is to have Tourette Syndrome (or any other difficult disorder, illness, malady, etc.) puts me in a mindset of feeling like a victim. And let me tell you something…

I am not a victim. Nor will I allow myself to think that way.
