Nobody is inferior or superior but equal. We have the ability to make life choices and to take responsibility for our actions and decisions. But as members of a world community, we are also able to inspire, empower and transform others. I never cease to be amazed and humbled by the way in which we touch the hearts and minds of others. I also have gratitude for those who have touched my life. The gift of giving back is my way of contributing to the creative process.
 
“I know that I’m inferior to everybody in some way. You may be a better singer than I am or more centered in some ways. But I also know that I’m superior to you in something else. I know how to create a process to achieve things, and I never, ever give up. That makes us equal.” Read more about what drives Tony to want to help others and what's behind his new book in this cover story in +Fortune Magazine . #CEOWhisperer
When no one was looking, Tony Robbins went from infomercial pitchman to C-suite coach. Now captains of industry and finance pay him seven-figures for his wisdom. Here's what we can learn for free.

Please would you share this with everyone. I feel that rape, and its consequences, is a worldwide issue that needs urgent action. 
A Catholic Bishop has questioned why the baby of a woman who had requested a termination of the pregnancy was delivered at 24 weeks by C-section.

So true. Situations like this one starts with so many 'professionals' making decisions...never   once considering the outcomes. Everyone can make a mistake..own up to it...take steps to see it never happens again. It's called accountability...so stand up and be counted. If the system is failing..change the system. Just don't give one of those hypocritical ' we are taking steps to see that this kind of thing never happens again' speeches. Everyone knows that the problem re-emerges time and time again. There are no problems..just solutions. We all need to ensure that decision makers find solutions.

Hi Guys
Have just joined and am looking forward to discussions. Like a couple of commentators I too am finding a difficulty in converting my fully illustrated children's story book to Kindle fire.

Thanks so much for your message and offer. Amazon have not been the best of companies to deal with. They seem to keep referring to the website information.. which is not helpful at all. I have a graphics expert trying on my behalf.. but they won't communicate with her either. Will still keep on. There has to be a solution!!!

Formatting Your eBook  - 
 
Just joined this circle. My first book has taken a year to get onto Amazon as an eBook. It was a fixed format and although my design expert had it formatted 10 months ago Amazon's system was not able to accept it. We've paid a company in England to effect the near impossible. I was not going to give up especially as my stories are based in Ireland. Have added a photo so that you can understand why.

What inspires writers to write?
I've added a photo of "the boreen" from a small village just outside Ballyhaunis, Co. Mayo. It was where my husband and I relocated to 16 years ago. Being an ex teacher I felt I knew what children would be interested in reading. But the west of Ireland was the place that captured  and fired up my imagination. It has now become the setting for all my stories. So I guess you could argue that inspiration found me. I'd be interested in hearing from you guys though.

I just love your pictures! This one is the boreen in Annagh Village in Co. Mayo. It is where my stories are set.

Story
Introduction
I am a retired primary school teacher. Having fulfilled my ambitions in education I now realize that my passion has always been creative writing and storytelling. In many respects my path as a teacher has been a thorough preparation for this new career and I thank all the children and parents I have encountered along the way. However, it is my husband Tony who has become my mentor and driving force. He has such confidence in my ability.
