Fearless Living Starts with Accepting Your Own Imperfect Greatness:
Excerpt from Fearless Parenting (c.2013)
This appears in Tammy’s new Book FEARLESS PARENTING (from Chapter 8: How to Coach Other Significant Adults in Your Child’s Life, p.112)
        ... Before we tackle some strategies for coaching the adults in our lives, I want to remind you of the greatness you are.  When I was first trained as an Advanced Trainer in 2007, I was well-versed in NHA.  I had read the book, attended the daylong workshop with Howard Glasser and begun practicing the system of relationship with my own children and

Honoring Greatness - Beginning with Yourself
(NOTE: This is the original version of this article which appears in Tammy’s book for Educators: There’s Always Something Going Right)

How good are you at welcoming the vibrant challenges of your life? In church last week, an opportunity was offered to attend a wonderful presentation on Monday. My cousin complained that she had to work.  I smiled and reminded her that that wasn’t a problem.  She GOT to work. She HAS a job – and man, did she get that!  It was such a true reminder that perspective in life is everything when it comes to handling stress.  What might it take to see every

Forget the Guilt of Failed New Year’s Resolutions: Focus on the NEW DAY!
Today’s a New Day.  So what are your New Year’s Resolutions?  Each year as we struggle to remember to write the correct year on our documents,  to start to think about organizing our papers for taxes, to try NOT to think about the next long vacation, and recover from the long holiday, we are prompted to ‘begin fresh’ with resolve to change something in a positive way.  ) Ironically, this comes from an assumption that we are messing up, which in itself doesn’t seem like a strong start for
