Interesting post.  I love the expression "embrace your greatness" and like the way it can apply to so many disciplines and philosophies.
  My tagline, mission, slogan, and brand of sorts is Embrace Your Greatness. I use it in hashtags on twitter, Facebook and Instagram. It’s my message to people everywhere but especially the lost, wounded, hurt, heartbroken, ...

+Bob Burg Thank you so much for continuing to add value to this retreat. (I'm not surprised - just pleased!) I'm looking forward to it
 
It isn't enough just to be good at what you do. You must fascinate!! In today's post, I interview the woman who wrote the book (literally!) on that topic. Sally Hogshead is author of "Fascinate." Her Fascination Advantage test shows how the world sees you and your fascination triggers. Join our interview at http://bit.ly/yAaPNd (BTW, Sally is offering her Fascination Advantage Starter Kit - which she normally charges for- for free when you register for The Go-Giver Retreat, at which she will be presenting. This is cool!)

Well done!
 
What if Dr. Seuss had written and drawn Star Wars?

Apparently this is a couple of years old but I bet it's going to be new to a few of you. Am I turning into your Stream's Star Wars nerd? I hope so.

Also- Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

Pass it on....
 
New study finds that nearly 20% of women under 45 have heart attacks without chest pains. Women know what to do if they discover a lump in their breast, yet heart disease is more likely to kill you than breast cancer. Know the warning signs:

Such an important idea.
 
A friend's daughter is working on this Urban Farm project, raising funds via Kickstarter. Creating urban farms in former food deserts contributes to health, the environment and, simply, justice.

I'm so spoiled and lucky living in California...the access to fresh, local produce year-round is unparalleled.

Some urban neighborhoods don't even have an actual grocery store with an actual produce department. Projects like this should help.
We, revolutionary urban vegetable growers in the Twin Cities, need to convert 10 new vacant lots into vibrant, productive micro-farms.

SEND +John Herman TO SPACE ---No, really.

I have a very unique request. I might go to space. Yes, really. This is not science fiction. I have a very real opportunity to go to space, but I need help. Read on... or jump to how you can help.

I was chosen as one of the 20 semi-finalists (50,000 initial entries cut down to 1000 cut down to 20) to move into the public voting phase of the nationwide Space Race 2012 contest. The Seattle Space Needle is partnering with commercial spaceflight company Space Adventures to make the trip possible. Space Adventures has already sent seven people to space on privately funded trips. Buzz Aldrin, the second man to set foot on the moon, has also thrown his support behind the contest, saying, "This new space race is important to our country in as much the same way as the one that I was a part of 50 years ago," he said. "Today we're embarking on a journey that will carry hundreds of thousands of people like you and me into space." Here's some local media coverage from a few hours ago: http://www.seacoastonline.com/articles/20120222-NEWS-120229926

HOW YOU CAN HELP: My contest video has gone live on the Seattle Space Needle's Facebook page and voting has begun. I ask you to please take a moment and vote... daily. Viewers will be allowed to vote a maximum of once per day through March 18th. After public voting has ended, five finalists will compete in challenges in Seattle. The grand prize winner goes to space. Here's the link to vote: http://apps.facebook.com/spaceracecompetition/entries/134 (Yes, it is a Facebook app. Yes, I know. I know this is a lot to ask. Remember this is space. SPACE. For the bigger picture, go to the Seattle Space Needle's Facebook page.)

If you want to go the extra mile and help spread the word to others, then here's a link that sums everything up: http://www.johnherman.org/2012/02/21/send-john-herman-to-space

Fun fact: Public voting ends on March 18th, halfway through the run of charity plays I am producing (See: http://boingboing.net/2012/02/20/science-fiction-apocalypses-li.html), and the very the day I shave my head to raise money for children's cancer research grants. Here's a link to that as well: http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/mypage/522482/2012

Let's just say that March is a wild month for me.

###

Hey +Natalie Villalobos +Katherine Gramann +Chris Brogan +Steve Garfield +Cam Meadows & other Google+ fans, supporters, and employees, I would absolutely love to drop in on a hangout from space. For real. I obviously have no control over this, but a boy can dream.
