My mother ran her own business for over thirty years, and on nearly every one of those days, she would go into the bathroom each morning and "Create a miracle". This involved an elaborate hair and makeup process that would make Liberace look like a hobo. Ma always told me that her efforts gave her that extra boost of motivation she needed to pick up the phone, set up the meeting, ask for the sale, and otherwise do the unpleasant tasks associated with running a successful business.
This morning, as I go through my own miracle-making, I am thinking of my greatest inspiration -- my mom -- so that I may take step after step after step to the unbounded success I desire and deserve. Go ahead. Take that first step. Even if that first step involves applying false eyelashes.
