YOU ARE YOUR OWN FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH: Movement, Motivation and Mindset for Active Seniors

Energy Bite 182 – Unabashed Self Promotion

I’m not a particularly good Self-Promoter but I intend to change that. I’m learning how important self-promotion is when you have a blog with the purpose of helping seniors, but which you also want to ultimately monetize. I plan to monetize mine through workshops and publications on the subjects of Movement, Motivation and Mindset, Health, Fitness and Personal Energy for Active Seniors.

Back in the day when I had my own Seminar Company, I was truly an unabashed self-promoter. I wrote articles for many publications related to public speaking and seminars. I was asked to do interviews for radio and cable TV, as well as having a full page profile in the Washington Business Journal and profiles in several publications for Speakers and Seminar Leaders. I was en route to a national following, but those days ended a long time ago.

So, it’s particularly exciting when a national publication has an article about me in its local Washington, DC Metro Area Edition. Robin Fillmore, Publisher and Editor in Chief of Natural Awakenings Magazine (DC Edition) wrote and published a very nice profile about me and The Come Alive Project in the March 2017 edition. You can read the article right here. Tell your friends! Tell your neighbors! Tell everybody! Self-promoter, who me?

So, spurred on by this article, I’ll be kicking things up a notch or two with more writing, more speaking (including seminars and workshops) and publishing videos for YouTube and other video outlets, hoping to get The Come Alive Project onto the National stage. You can help by sharing this article on Facebook and by email to others you know who may be interested in Senior Health and Fitness.

NOTE: Robin Fillmore, the Publisher of the DC Edition of the Magazine will be pursuing another lifelong dream and is making the magazine available for purchase at what I think is an excellent price. If you’ve ever considered magazine publishing, here is a great opportunity. You can contact Robin for the complete details at

Energy Bite 180 – Perceptions of “Ageism”

I’ve been reading and hearing a lot about “ageism” lately. Does it exist? Probably. Age discrimination in the legal context does. It’s against the law to discriminate against a person in a hiring situation solely because of age. Except for athletes, of course. They get put out to pasture in their 30s, and it’s OK.… Continue Reading

Energy Bite 179 – A Brief and Final Word about Motivation, for Now

I’ve been writing thoughts about motivation for a few weeks now, asking about why some people exercise during the week and others don’t. What motivates some to either go to a gym or exercise at home, while others won’t do it, even though their doctor has told them to either exercise or get sick and… Continue Reading

Energy Bite 178 – A Less Than Final Word on Motivation

Since I have  been writing about what motivates people, especially seniors, to exercise and take responsibility for their own health and wellness, I thought I’d go back to George Leonard’s book, The Ultimate Athlete for some good statistics and reasoning about health and fitness. I referred to Leonard’s books often when I first started this… Continue Reading

Energy Bite 175 – Think Yourself Young

Earlier this month, I wrote an article in this blog about the expectations of aging and how the very fear and expectations of getting older could accelerate the process. I quoted Maxwell Maltz, author of the famous self-help book from the 1960s, Psycho-Cybernetics, where he asks the question “Do we sometimes think ourselves into Old… Continue Reading
