Matthew Cossolotto, Creator of PEPTalks and Make A Promise Day (May 4th — May The Fourth Be With You!), Unveils New PEPTalk Titled “What The ‘H’ Happened?”

Stop The Snap!  Expanding lineup of PEPTalks, Cossolotto’s new Personal Empowerment Program is designed for delivery toward the end of a conference or training seminar to help attendees guard against backsliding into old, disempowering habits and mindsets.

Apr 07, 2011 – Matthew Cossolotto (aka The Podium Pro) is expanding his lineup of Personal Empowerment Programs (“PEPTalks”) with a new presentation specifically designed for delivery toward the end of a motivational conference or training seminar.  He calls this new PEPTalk “What The ‘H’ Happened? – Harness Your HabitForce, Avoid Backsliding, and Snap the Rubber Band Syndrome.”

“Here’s the post-conference scenario that my ‘What-The-H’ presentation is designed to prevent,” Cossolotto explained.  “I ask the audience to project a couple of weeks into the future.  It was a great conference.  Individual attendees or the sponsoring organization spent lots of money and invested precious time and energy.  People were all fired up, motivated, inspired, ready to implement those empowering new ideas or techniques they learned about.  But a few weeks later, most participants feel like Al Pacino in Godfather III.  You know … just when you thought you were out, they pull you back in.  ‘They’ refers to your old habits.  That’s also the ‘H’ in the title… what I call HabitForce.  Far too often, after we attend a motivational seminar or even read an inspiring book, we snap back into our old, familiar, comfort zone of habits and mindsets.  In short, you go back to being who you were BEFORE the seminar.  This presentation provides the tools people need to guard against snapping back into old, disempowering patterns.  Put simply: I want to Stop The Snap!”

Snap The Rubber Band Syndrome:  If this backsliding scenario sounds familiar, Cossolotto says you’re not alone.  We’ve all been there, done that.  Despite the best of intentions, most of us tend to snap back to our familiar patterns of thought and behavior.  Cossolotto calls this “The Rubber Band Syndrome.”  During a seminar — or even while reading a self-help book – we stretch the rubber band a little bit.  But after the conference is over, the band tends to snap back to its original, tension-free shape. Think of this slack state as the rubber band’s Comfort Zone.

As Cossolotto explains:  “Your personal Comfort Zone is the sum total of your routine habits and mindsets. I call this HabitForce and I wrote a book about it.  If you attend a seminar then slide backwards… if you’re feeling stuck… if you set goals and fail to reach them… if you’re falling short of your potential… if you feel like some irresistible, negative force is holding you back … don’t give up. Help is on the way. I know exactly what the “H” is happening.  Your personal operating system has a glitch. You need to reprogram your HabitForce software so it works for you, not against you.  And that’s what my ‘What-The-H’ presentation is all about.”

In this empowering, end-of-conference presentation, participants will learn how to:

•   Use the Three Rs — Recognize, Reject and Replace — to reprogram your HabitForce;
•   Employ the Six Axioms of Personal Empowerment to achieve your goals, keep your promises, and reach your potential
•   Replace disempowering FAILURE habits with their SUCCESS counterparts
•   Reject finger-pointing and take responsibility for your life
•   Stop undermining yourself with negative self-talk
•   Use positive affirmations and promises to reinforce SUCCESS habits
•   Harness the Ebenezer Effect and the Power of Making a Promise.

Earlier this year, Cossolotto announced the launch of a new lineup of Personal Empowerment Programs (PEPTalks).  He is now offering these uplifting and empowering presentations to various audiences locally and around the country including corporations, colleges, nonprofits, and government agencies.  To book Cossolotto as a guest speaker for your next event, visit http://www.ThePodiumPro.com or email BookMatthew@ThePodiumPro.com.

In addition to “What The ‘H’ Happened?” Cossolotto’s series of PEPTalks includes:

•   The Power of Making a Promise: Make A Promise. Keep Your Word. Change Your Life. Transform The World.

•   The Joy of Speaking: Turn Stage Fright Into Stage Delight and Speak Your Way to the Peak.

•   Success Is An Inside Job: Avoid FAILURE Traps, Get on the SUCCESS Track, and Reach Your Peak Personal Potential.

Cossolotto’s multifaceted communications career includes working for the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and senior-level speechwriting and executive communications positions at GTE (now Verizon), and Pepsi-Cola International, and MCI.  Since 1996, Cossolotto has been providing clients with a range of executive communications and media relations services, including speechwriting, speech coaching, and PodiumPower! workshops.  On May 4th 2010, he launched the first annual “Make A Promise Day.”  Visit http://www.MakeAPromiseDay.com.

Cossolotto is working on a new book about The Power of Making a Promise, featuring a foreword by Jack Canfield, co-creator of the best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series.  In his foreword to Cossolotto’s forthcoming book Canfield writes: “Contributing the foreword to this book and being associated with Matthew’s inspiring ‘Make-A-Promise’ project is totally aligned with my life’s purpose.”

Matthew Cossolotto, Creator of “Make A Promise Day,” Posts “What’s Your Promise?” Interview with Todd Newton on YouTube

Apr 06, 2011 – Author and guest speaker Matthew Cossolotto, creator of “Make A Promise Day” (May 4th — May The Fourth Be With You!), today announced that he has posted an inspiring 20-minute “What’s Your Promise?” interview with popular TV host Todd Newton.  Release of the interview is part of the countdown to “Make A Promise Day” 2011.

Newton has been the host of E! Entertainment Television’s red carpet coverage of various awards programs including the Academy Awards.  He is also known to millions of television viewers for his work on the Game Show Network, the Travel Network, and CBS.  This past year, Newton has been traveling the world as the host of the Travel Network’s World’s Wildest Game Shows.

During the interview, Newton discussed the life-changing promise he made to his grandmother, Eleanor Kruse (“Nana”), who performed as a comedienne in the St. Louis area during World War II.  After describing his Nana as someone who inspired and encouraged him and as the most important person in his life when he was growing up, Newton recounted the day he went to visit his grandmother in the hospital when she was terminally ill.  Seeing that she was fading fast, he knew this would be the last conversation he would have with her.  So he leaned in close to speak to her and the following words came out spontaneously and from the heart.

“Nana … I promise to always make you proud of me.”

Listen to Todd Newton’s “What’s Your Promise?” interview on YouTube:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ECJFj5wx-o

Talking about this promise some 17 years later is still an emotional experience for Newton, who became choked up during the interview.  Later in the interview, Newton said the promise he made to Nana was “the most important thing I have ever done, or said, or ever will commit to in my life.  It literally has changed my life for the better.”

During the lively and moving interview, Newton expressed his strong support for Matthew Cossolotto’s mission to share the power of making a promise with millions of people around the world: “I think what you’re doing is fantastic.  And I can’t thank you enough for reaching out to me and allowing me to be a part of this.  And I look forward to supporting your ‘Make A Promise Day’ in May and being a part of this great campaign as it grows, and grows, and grows.”

Newton is certainly not alone in supporting Cossolotto’s “Make A Promise” project.  The Town Board in Yorktown, New York, unanimously adopted a resolution on February 15, 2011, proclaiming May 4th to be “Make A Promise Day.”  Cossolotto is writing a book about the power of making a promise with a foreword by Jack Canfield, co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.  Here is a brief excerpt from Jack Canfield’s foreword to Cossolotto’s forthcoming book:

“When Matthew first told me about the heartfelt promise he made to his mother and that he was launching a special day called “Make A Promise Day” on May 4th, I was hooked. You could say he had me at “I promise.”… Contributing the foreword to this book and being associated with Matthew’s inspiring “Make-A-Promise” project is totally aligned with my life’s purpose.” http://www.JackCanfield.com

John Assaraf, best-selling author of Having It All, wrote this about Cossolotto’s “Make A Promise” project:  “I have spoken with Matthew about his project related to The Power of Making a Promise.  He told me about ‘Make A Promise Day‘ and his mission to highlight what he calls those two magic words:  ‘I Promise.’  I agree completely with him that there is something uniquely powerful about making a promise that goes beyond traditional goal-setting… Put simply, Matthew’s project is very promising indeed!”  http://www.JohnAssaraf.com

Author and publisher Rick Frishman wrote this about “Make A Promise Day”:   “Happy ‘Make A Promise Day’ everybody! I really like Matthew’s idea.  The power of making a promise to someone you care about really can change your life.  Great work Matthew … May The Fourth Be With You!”  http://www.RickFrishman.com

During her own “What’s Your Promise?” interview (to be released soon), Gail Lynne Goodwin, founder of http://www.InspireMeToday.com, said this about Cossolotto’s “Make A Promise” mission:  “You’re onto something big here.  Because when we make a promise we put our word on the line and we have to step up for it… I commend you on the word you’re doing.  It’s an inspiration to me.”

Cossolotto knows about the power of making a promise from personal experience.  He made a promise to his mother on her deathbed that he would finish writing a book he had been discussing with her, get it published, and dedicate it to her memory. The resulting book, complete with Cossolotto’s dedication to his mother, is HabitForce! How to Kick the Habits of FAILURE and Adopt the Habits of SUCCESS.

In the run-up to “Make A Promise Day” 2011, Cossolotto is asking supporters to spread the word about “Make A Promise Day” to jurisdictions across the U.S. and around the world.  He encourages people to urge appropriate authorities in their town, city, county, state (or province) and country to adopt a “Make A Promise Day” Proclamation similar to the one passed by the Yorktown, New York, Town Board.  See earlier press release (http://prlog.org/11399160) with the proposed text of a resolution that could be adapted and adopted by appropriate authorities in jurisdictions around the world.

To underscore the power of making a promise, Cossolotto cites several high-profile examples:
•   Oprah Winfrey made a promise to Nelson Mandela that she would build a school for girls in South Africa.
•   Nancy Brinker, author of Promise Me and founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, promised her sister and breast cancer victim Suzy that she would help find a cure.
•   Before his daughter’s wedding, former president Bill Clinton made a promise to Chelsea that he would watch his diet and take care of his health.
•   NBC’s Al Roker made a promise to his dying father that he would deal with his weight issues.
•   Kody Bateman, CEO of Send Out Cards, made a promise to his departed brother (and himself) that he would act on his promptings and find a way to help others do the same.  He founded Send Out Cards as a result of this heartfelt promise.
•   Kirk Smalley made a promise do everything he could to stop bullying after his 11-year-old stepson, Ty Field, committed suicide because he was being bullied at school.

Cossolotto invites people around the world to submit short summaries of their moving true stories of promises made and promises kept for possible inclusion in forthcoming books, presentations, and interviews.  Send a few sentences describing your promise to:  Matthew.Promises@Gmail.com.

Countdown to Make A Promise Day: Matthew Cossolotto, creator of Make A Promise Day, Launches Make A Promise Network on Facebook

Apr 04, 2011 – Matthew Cossolotto, creator of Make A Promise Day (May 4th) and author of a forthcoming book about the power of making a promise, today announced the launch of “Make A Promise Network” on Facebook.  Search for “Make A Promise Network” on Facebook or follow this link:  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Make-A-Promise-Network/183 ….

As described by Cossolotto, a former aide to House Speaker Jim Wright and Congressman (now CIA Director) Leon Panetta, the “Make A Promise Network” will bring people together from around the world who believe in the power of promises and who want to share personal stories about promises made and promises kept in their own lives.

Cossolotto invites people around the world to post their moving true stories of promises made and promises kept on the Make A Promise Network page.  They can also email short summaries of their promises stories Directly to Cossolotto for possible inclusion in forthcoming books, presentations, and interviews.  Send a few sentences describing your promise to:  Matthew.Promises@Gmail.com.

Cossolotto is also making a lineup of unique and memorable gift items available via the Network.  These are gifts that people can enjoy all year but have special meaning leading up to “Make A Promise Day” itself.  For instance, there are two versions of a new Make A Promise Day greeting card.  One includes a simple “I Promise” form that allows the sender to make a special written promise to the recipient.  The other greeting card is blank on the inside so the sender has the option to make a specific promise or simply extend a more general greeting on Make A Promise Day.  Other gift items include Make A Promise Day coffee mugs and t-shirts.

All “Make A Promise Day” gifts can be purchased online via Matthew Cossolotto’s Zazzle.com store.  Visit http://www.Zazzle.com/TheCoz and search among the various Make A Promise Day items.

With his “A Promise A Day” ePub (available online by visiting http://www.ThePodiumPro.com), Cossolotto provides 30 personal empowerment promises for people to consider, including his “Top Ten Promises for a SUCCESSFUL Life” and twelve promises first penned by Christian Larson and published as the Optimist Creed.

Here’s a short video of Cossolotto announcing the publication of “A Promise A Day.”  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXEeMIlRTb4

The Make A Promise Network also actively supports the creation of “Make A Promise Day” on May 4th every year — the only unofficial “holiday” dedicated to personal empowerment, goal-achievement, and integrity enhancement.  Cossolotto said he hoped members of the Network would encourage governmental leaders around the world (towns, cities, counties, provinces, states, and countries) to adopt “Make A Promise Day” proclamations similar to the resolution adopted by the Yorktown, New York, Town Board on February 15, 2011.
Here is the proposed text of a resolution that could be adapted and adopted by appropriate authorities in jurisdictions around the world:

DRAFT “MAKE A PROMISE DAY” PROCLAMATION

Whereas, the Town Board of Yorktown, New York, unanimously adopted a resolution on February 15, 2011, proclaiming May 4th of 2011 and each year thereafter to be Make A Promise Day;

Whereas, Make a Promise Day is the only unofficial “holiday” dedicated to personal empowerment, goal achievement and integrity enhancement;

Whereas, Make A Promise Day encourages individuals to turn important goals into heartfelt promises thereby increasing the probability of reaching those goals;

Whereas, celebrating Make A Promise Day will have the effect of enhancing accountability, personal responsibility and integrity;

Whereas, the (INSERT JURISDICTION/OFFICE) recognizes the value of highlighting the power of making and keeping promises on the part of local students, teachers, community organizations, businesses and political leaders;

Now therefore be it resolved, that the (INSERT JURISDICTION/OFFICE) hereby designates and proclaims May 4th of 2011 and each year thereafter to be “Make A Promise Day” and encourages organizations and individual members of the community to celebrate “Make A Promise Day” in a manner they deem to be suitable and appropriate.

Cossolotto knows about the power of making a promise from personal experience.  He made a promise to his mother on her deathbed that he would finish writing a book he had been discussing with her, get it published, and dedicate it to her memory. The resulting book, complete with Cossolotto’s dedication to his mother, is HabitForce! How to Kick the Habits of FAILURE and Adopt the Habits of SUCCESS.  Signed copies of HabitForce! are available by visiting http://wwwThePodiumPro.com.

To underscore the power of making a promise, Cossolotto cites several high-profile examples:
•   Oprah Winfrey made a promise to Nelson Mandela that she would build a school for girls in South Africa.
•   Nancy Brinker, author of Promise Me and founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, promised her sister and breast cancer victim Suzy that she would help find a cure.
•   Before his daughter’s wedding, former president Bill Clinton made a promise to Chelsea that he would watch his diet and take care of his health.

Countdown to Make A Promise Day (May 4th) — Matthew Cossolotto Publishes “A Good Pep Talk” Article In April Personal Excellence Magazine

http://prlog.org/11414379

Apr 02, 2011 – Matthew Cossolotto, author of HabitForce! and creator of “Make A Promise Day” (May 4th — May The Fourth Be With You!), has published an article in the April issue of Personal Excellence magazine (http://www.LeaderExcel.com) titled “A Good Pep Talk.”  In the article, Cossolotto highlights this key personal empowerment idea:  The most powerful motivational speech in the world is what you say to yourself, not just once in awhile but on a regular, habitual basis.

In the article, Cossolotto cites Earl Nightingale’s observation in The Strangest Secret: “We become what we think about.”  Then Cossolotto writes:

“This profound truth has been recognized for ages.  Buddha said, ‘All that we are is the result of what we have thought.  The mind is everything.  What we think we become.’  The same idea can be found in the Bible: ‘As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Proverbs 23.7).”

Publication of Cossolotto’s “pep talk” article coincides with the release of his new ePub titled “A Promise A Day — 30 Days to a Promising Future.”  News of this ePub is one of several announcements being made in the run-up to “Make A Promise Day” on May 4th.

Cossolotto, a former aide to House Speaker Jim Wright and Congressman (now CIA Director) Leon Panetta, referred to his brand new ePub as a daily “Promise Dairy” that contains 30 Personal Empowerment Promises – or PEPs. Because of that acronym, Cossolotto says there’s “a PEP talk in every promise.”

Thus his article and his new ePub both emphasize the importance of giving ourselves “pep talks” in the form of positive affirmations and even personal empowerment promises.

“I’m delighted that Personal Excellence magazine decided to publish my ‘pep talk’ article this month,” Cossolotto said.  “The timing is perfect.  It fits in well with the series of announcements I have planned in April and early May leading up to the second annual “Make A Promise Day” on May 4th.  I hope everyone will visit the Personal Excellence website (http://www.LeaderExcel.com.) and get their hands on the April issue.”

With his “A Promise A Day” ePub (available online by visiting http://www.ThePodiumPro.com), Cossolotto provides 30 personal empowerment promises for people to consider, including his “Top Ten Promises for a SUCCESSFUL Life” and twelve promises first penned by Christian Larson and published as the Optimist Creed.

Here’s a short video of Cossolotto announcing the publication of “A Promise A Day.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXEeMIlRTb4

Cossolotto knows about the power of making a promise from personal experience. He made a promise to his mother on her deathbed that he would finish writing a book he had been discussing with her, get it published, and dedicate it to her memory. The resulting book, complete with Cossolotto’s dedication to his mother, is HabitForce! How to Kick the Habits of FAILURE and Adopt the Habits of SUCCESS.

Motivated by that firsthand experience, Cossolotto launched the first annual “Make A Promise Day” last May 4th as part of his ongoing mission to share the power of making a promise with millions of people around the world. He’s writing a book about the power of making a promise with a foreword by Jack Canfield, co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. The book includes stories about people who have made and kept important promises in their lives.

Here is a brief excerpt from Jack Canfield’s foreword to Cossolotto’s forthcoming book:

When Matthew first told me about the heartfelt promise he made to his mother and that he was launching a special day called “Make A Promise Day” on May 4th, I was hooked. You could say he had me at “I promise.”… Contributing the foreword to this book and being associated with Matthew’s inspiring “Make-A-Promise” project is totally aligned with my life’s purpose. http://www.JackCanfield.com

On February 15, 2011, the Yorktown, NY, town board became the first jurisdiction to adopt a resolution proclaiming May 4th to be “Make A Promise Day.” (See press release for details: http://prlog.org/11305930.)

To underscore the power of making a promise, Cossolotto cites several high-profile examples:

• Oprah Winfrey made a promise to Nelson Mandela that she would build a school for girls in South Africa.

• Nancy Brinker, author of Promise Me and founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, promised her sister and breast cancer victim Suzy that she would help find a cure.

• Before his daughter’s wedding, former president Bill Clinton made a promise to Chelsea that he would watch his diet and take care of his health.
