Saboteurs are those voices in our head that tell us lies (no, not those kind of voices!), stand in our way and stop our forward progress. We ALL have them. What do your saboteurs say? And what are they doing to slow you down?
In her comic strip “Rhymes With Orange,” Hilary B. Price wields her wit like a scalpel. No surprise she’s one of my favorites.

“Hillary’s In – Now What? What’s Wanting in Leadership in 2016?”
On April 12, 2015, a NY Times article read:
“Ending two years of speculation and coy denials, Hillary Rodham Clinton announced on Sunday that she would seek the presidency for a second time, immediately establishing herself as the likely 2016 Democratic nominee.
“I’m running for president,” she said with a smile near the end of a two-minute video released just after 3 p.m.
“Everyday Americans need a champion. And I want to be that champion,” Mrs. Clinton said. “So I’m hitting the road to earn your vote — because it’s your time. And I hope you’ll join me on this journey.””
We’ve been on quite a journey already, and so, another one? Will it be different? If yes, how? If no, then what? What’s wanting from our leadership in 2016 … or sooner?
