Hi, I’m Tina Lifford, Founder & CEO of the Inner Fitness Project. The National Science Foundation reports that humans think 12 to 60 thousand thoughts daily. 80% of our thinking is negative & 95% is repetitive.

I can't say when I first realized I was related to Frederick Douglass. There was never a time that I can recall when my parents or grandparents sat me down and said we have something important to tell you about your ancestry. I've just always known.

There were schools, bridges, and buildings named for him. I would ask my friends and classmates if their grandparents were on statues.
