Britney Spears on Good Morning America

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

I just watched this beautiful girl dance (gyrate) and sing the most insipid non-inspiring songs and get huge applause. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my little girl to admire a young woman who sings songs with the lyrics “I can be your treble if you can be my base…make it bigger, make it bigger”! All while inviting both men and women to her crotch on stage.

She is a beautiful girl. There is no denying that. But is is obvious to me she is still hurt and wounded. Far from being ready to take the stage again. I was terribly disappointed in the performance. I thought it was vulgar and inept.

Come on everybody. I know she has been through a lot, but this is not what we want our young girls to be aspiring to! I thought during her absence in the spotlight she was getting her life back and re-branding herself. Becoming a young women who can prove to others who have made mistakes that you can grow up and be someone to look up to and inspire young women to make a change as well.

Good God, this woman is a MOM! What do you suppose her young ones will grow up to be like. I hope not their Mommy!

Did you get a chance to watch it? What did you think? Would you allow your kids to attend a Britney Spears concert or performance?

The Myth of Entitlement –

One of the biggest myths in our culture today is that we are entitled to a great life.  Somehow, somewhere, someone else is responsible for filling our lives with happiness, our dream career, a wonderful family, and happy personal relationships… simply because we exist.  But the truth is that only one person is responsible for the quality of the life you live.  That person is you.

If you want to be successful, you have to take 100% responsibility for absolutely everything that you experience in your life. This includes your achievements and failures, the results you produce, the quality of your relationships, the state of your health, your finances, your feelings, your kids—absolutely everything!

This can be hard to swallow for most of us.  In fact, most of us have been conditioned to blame something outside of ourselves for the parts of our life we don’t like. We blame our parents, our bosses, our friends, the media, our coworkers, our clients, our spouse, the weather, the economy, our astrological chart, our lack of money. We never want to look at where the real problem is—ourselves.  Next time you are out in public, listen to people, your friends, your family, yourself…you will be amazed at how much blaming is going on.

To achieve major success in life—to achieve those things that are most important to you—you must assume 100% responsibility for your life. Nothing less will do.  You cannot move forward in your life and be successful if you are blaming others for your life.  You can’t be successful and make excuses at the same time…it’s impossible!  Change your life now by taking full responsibility of everything in your life.

A question many of us ask ourselves and so many of our daughter’s have asked us the same question. What will you tell her?
