Nobody is smarter than you or better than you!! Successful people simply learn more, try more and persevere longer

Here on Everyday Uplift we often talk about the differences between successful people and unsuccessful people. In fact you can find some of those differences here here or here... If you've taken the time to read any of those entries you'll notice that there is a common theme. And that is in some way they all seem to relate to a persons outlook; Remember perception is reality. Here we like to call this The Everyday Uplift Mindset: Others call it the magic of dreaming big, the power of positive thinking so on and so forth. But what does it mean?

Some of you may have seen this here before (those that have please don't ruin the secret for others). But I always love to bring it up anyway around this time of year; When people are busy making false resolutions, knowing that what we really need is a lifestyle change (and maybe an attitude adjustment). Without further ado.....

Mikal LaNard Payne, a Philadelphia, Pa Native, Invited to Attend Award-Winning PhD Project Conference
Program Supports Diversity In Corporate America
November, 2011—The PhD Project, an award-winning program to create diversity in management, is proud to announce that Mikal LaNard Payne of Philadelphia, PA now living in Buies Creek, NC has been invited to attend the annual PhD Project Conference, being held at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare from November 16-18, 2011.
The PhD Project was created in 1994 to address the severe under-representation of African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans and Native Americans in management by diversifying the front of the classroom-the business school faculty. A diverse faculty encourages more minorities to pursue business degrees, thereby increasing the pool of minority applicants for positions in today’s multicultural corporate environment.
INFORMATION ABOUT PARTICIPANT/FUNDER
Qualified candidates are invited to this two and a half-day annual conference where they hear from deans, professors and current minority doctoral students about the benefits of pursuing a business Ph.D. Candidates are exposed to more than 100 doctoral-granting universities that are represented during a university exhibit fair at the conference. Networking with the university reps, deans, professors and current doctoral students provides candidates with the tools and resources they need to be better prepared for the application/admission process to doctoral programs.
When The PhD Project was created, there were only 294 doctorally qualified African-American, Hispanic American or Native American minority business professors in all
business schools. Today there are 1,113 minority business professors, an increase of more than 250%. Further, 379 minorities are currently enrolled in doctoral programs, and will take a place at the front of the classroom over the next few years. U.S.
Some of America’s top companies and academic organizations support The PhD Project. They are: KPMG Foundation, Graduate Management Admission Council, Citi Foundation, AACSB International, 250 Participating Universities, AICPA Foundation, Diversity Inc, JPMorgan Chase Foundation, The Goldman Sachs Group, The Merck Company Foundation, Microsoft Corporation, Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP, Rockwell Collins, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., ACT-1 Group, American Marketing Association, AT&T, John Deere Foundation, Dow Chemical Company, CIGNA, ADP, American Express, Motorola Foundation, The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, California State University System, , The Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Western Union Foundation, Corporate Executive Board, Edison International and Lincoln Financial Group.
