Good Morning Gorgeous offers a unique perspective to women of all ages on how to be Confident, Courageous, and Convinced!  This no-nonsense message challenges women to know who they are, stand their ground and embrace life passionately with purpose. Dale Smith Thomas encourages women emphatically to take a clear-eyed look at themselves and their self-defeating behavior realizing the responsibility starts with the woman looking in the mirror. The lies that hurt the most are the ones we are telling ourselves.   Being more successful in every area of our life requires that you “act” in ways that produce more of what you want. Learn the seemingly “simple” but not “easy” to implement skills that will take you from where you are to where you want to be! Take the steps to Discover all of your “Gorgeousness” from the inside out.

Join Dale Smith Thomas for this fun, informative presentation that will empower you with ideas to make healthy changes in mind, body and spirit.

“Good Morning Gorgeous’” - Empowering Women to Empower Others

Women are trying to do more and be more than ever before. At times when life is challenging at best we need others to help us navigate. Mentors provide guideposts and their own stories of hope and inspiration. Being more successful in every area of our life requires that you “act” in ways that produce more of what you want. Learn the seemingly “simple” but not “easy” to implement skills that will take you from where you are to where you want to be! Take the steps to Discover all of your “Gorgeousness” from the inside out and empower other women to do the same by your example.

 “Beyond The Limits”

In today’s highly competitive world it takes extra effort to stand out.  We all love the stories about the “winners.” But what does it really take to create a winning edge both personally and professionally in life?  Just as water boils at 212 degrees but not at 211 degrees, successful people succeed due to an extra degree of effort.  Look at the lives of Thomas Edison, Babe Ruth, Michael Jordan, Steve Jobs, J K Rowling, Jim Carey and many others.  Becoming truly successful comes down to a few non-negotiable life principles that you practice each and every day. Join Dale as she shares these fundamental principles of success to help you create “Your Winning Edge” in all areas of your life.

“Win From Within”

It’s been said that we all have approximately 50,000 thoughts a day and 70-80% of those thoughts are negative and 95% are the same thoughts you had yesterday. Many of those thoughts are spent dwelling in the past or obsessing about mistakes we have made, or battling guilt and worry.  Only a small percentage of our thoughts are focused on what is truly important. Our minds are a constant battlefield.  Join Dale as she shares some powerful tools to take action and become proactive in daily changing your life from within. Learn to identify your “automatic” negative thoughts, and how changing your internal thoughts can start to change your external results. It’s time to learn how to Win From Within!

“Choices Create Champions”

What is a champion and how can we create championship results in every area of our life? Champions are described as remarkable people, warriors, heroes and winners. Champions are not magically blessed or dramatically different, they simply apply a different set of skills to their lives.  We become champions in life when we decide to make different choices daily that the average person is not willing to make. This empowering, educational, entertaining presentation will teach you the “basics” of creating championship results both personally and professionally.
