Here's what I did today that I've never done before:
This blog right here is a demonstration of the power of "The Secret" or "putting it out there to the universe" or whatever. I wrote on day one of this experiment that one of the things I've never done before is speak on television. Today, I marked that off of my list. Literally.
I've been on National TV a few times. I was in the crowd on The Today Show back in 1998. I was on the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. I've been on The Ellen DeGeneres Show a few times here and there, not featured.
Tuesday I was asked to be a fake contestant on the Ellen Show. My character's name was Safia Duran from Clarksville, TN and I was a 7th grade English teacher. That was a shout-out to the hometown and my favorite teachers in school, both English, Hazen and Ufflemania.
Because of this experiment of doing something new everyday, and because I had never talked on TV before, I said yes. My initial response was a big fat "NO", but I was asked again and I acquiesced because what would one time hurt?
Look at that. This experiment thing is really working.
