The Power of Self-Forgiveness

By Robin Fisher Roffer

When a dream is finally realized, your inner judge may try to sabotage it. Here’s how I finally quieted the critical voices and just let go.

forgiveness photo“Mommy, you were amazing!” my teenage daughter exclaimed as she hugged my neck. It was the first time she’d seen me give a keynote, and this one was in front of thousands of people. It was a dream fulfilled to speak at an arena.  I had imagined the moment to be one of the most exhilarating of my life, a moment I should have been overjoyed to share with my daughter, but all I could say to her was, “I don’t think so.”

My keynote on Living Fearlessly, one of many I’d given on a tour promoting my new book, The No-Fear Career, had brought 14,000 people to their feet, but I couldn’t hear their applause, only the critical inner voice that was scoring my performance telling me I wasn’t good enough, I was in my head, not my body, I went over my allotted time… More…

Getting Over Post-Project Depression

By Robin Fisher Roffer

pressure to be perfectEver get that empty feeling when you’ve worked intensely on something big and then it ends?

During the first quarter of this year I worked on three major projects that had me zigzagging the country through the dead of winter to New York, LA, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Tampa and Atlanta.  The pace was non-stop and the stakes were high.  I worked closely with my clients every day to ensure that what I was delivering was on target. We collaborated on strategy, told each other about our personal lives, made each other laugh, got as close as family.  And then it was over. More…

Unmotivated? Burned Out? Stuck?

By Robin Fisher Roffer

Answering these questions will help you come back to yourself so you can finally move forward.

Over the summer I had the privilege of spending a week in Atlanta, the city where I started my professional life.  I thought about all the jobs I held there in my 20’s: stints in fashion and music, and promotion director posts at a pop radio station, alternative newspaper and finally at TNT, where I made a name for myself in the cable television industry.   More…

How To Sell Your Ideas Like Don Draper

By Robin Fisher Roffer

Could playing small be what’s keeping you from winning big in business?

Each time I sit down to watch an episode of Mad Men I’m drawn in by the power that Don Draper commands in a meeting. He knows that he’s got the right idea. His cocksure pitch blankets the client in confidence. With total faith, they believe that the campaign will work to increase sales and build their personal reputations as genius decision makers. And whether it’s Cool Whip or Clearasil, Don and the Mad Men of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce deliver. More…

Needs vs. Wants

By Robin Fisher Roffer

Why is that when we get what we want it can feel like a hollow victory? Maybe it’s because we didn’t really need it after all.

reinvent yourself, Robin FisherA few weeks ago I made a list of what I needed and what I wanted in my life. This was soul-searching work. For so long I had operated from a place of want. I bought things because I wanted them. I had that extra glass of wine because I wanted it. I chose partners and projects because I wanted to be wanted. My wants were primal and fleeting.

It was not in my nature to work from a place of need. Even admitting that I needed anything was painful. More…
