April 27th at Atlantis and
the theme, "Embrace Your Power" and delivered inspiration,
encouragement, and hope; along with acknowledging achievements made by
women in the local arena as well as the Caribbean.
The Bahamas Weekly News Team was on hand to bring you this video interview with
international motivational speaker and writer, Lisa Nichols, one of the teachers in the book and movie, "The Secret", and a collaborative author of two "Chicken Soup" series.
Listen as Nichols speaks from her heart and talks about the sweeping success of both books, and how her life changed because of it. "I am not just a business owner and an author, I am just a woman, a single mom who at one time did not money to buy my son Pampers..."
Nichols goes on to explain her personal transformation and a positive thought process, based on 'the law of attraction', which anyone can use to change their life, "Your past does not equal your future. Your future is being designed in this moment based on what you 'think' you should have. If you give yourself permission to do something different, to be someone different, all of a sudden, you will look up and your life will transform into something that is barely recognizable. I am the living example of that."
"There is no fairy dust, potion, and the secret isn't a magic wand. It's a decision inside your mind to say What am I worth?, What do I want?, and what am I willing to do to get it"' Think positively, speak positively and then act according to what your dreams are.
