Lose Weight: 3 Sure-Fire Ways Busy Executives Blow Their Weight Loss Efforts By: Jeanie Callen Barat

Wednesday, 24 October 2007 21:32:12 GMT

Your company's recent merger is on a tidy timetable. Your IT department backs up your valuable data every Friday at 9. The water cooler guy arrives every Tuesday at noon. Busy executives know the importance of structure and regularity in juggling business responsibilities. But should you be so rigid when it comes to your nutrition and fitness routines and choices? Having well-established habits and a consistent routine is...(article continues at: )

Even If You're Getting All the Referrals You Need, You Still Need to Sell! By: Ivan Misner

Wednesday, 24 October 2007 21:43:07 GMT

Anyone who is experienced and successful in referral marketing will tell you that sales skills are absolutely required. They're needed in every part of the process--not just in closing the sale with the prospect. >First, you have to sell yourself to your potential referral source--she has to buy the concept that there's value in introducing you to someone she knows. A referral is not a guaranteed sale; it's the opportunity to do business with someone to whom you have been recommended. You still have to close the deal--most of the time. You have to make it clear that you... (article continues at:)

Intentional Abundance - Tune in and Receive! By: John Carpenter Dealey

Wednesday, 24 October 2007 21:52:57 GMT

How would you like your life to be? Would you like to make a change or stay the way you are? Most of us have some things we would like to change or have more of. The good news is that intention and manifestation can help you create the life of your dreams! Dr. Gay Hendricks is the author and co-author of more than twenty books dealing with personal growth, transformation, intention, and manifestation. He defines manifestation as 'the art of choosing how you want your life to be and turning those choices into reality.' Through his research and studies, Dr. Hendricks has found that there are...(article continues at: )

Aging Well: Vigorous Movement Means Slower Aging By: Dr. Stephen Ruppenthal

Wednesday, 17 October 2007 09:35:26 GMT

I would sum up physical well-being in one word: movement. By that I mean moving things through the both body and mind, rather than letting what we don't want get stuck there. For aging happens rapidly when we are stuck, whether in our diet, lack of exercise, or rigid habits. Here are four ways to cleanse both our body and mind so that we age much slower and live life to the full: 1... (article continues at: )

Seven Steps to Maximizing the Power of Association By: Jill Koenig

Wednesday, 17 October 2007 09:42:17 GMT

There is a saying that one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch. And one negative person can affect everyone they come into contact with. I was recently sharing some of my short term business Goals with someone in my professional peer network. While I do have a tendency to aim high and set some outrageous Goals, I also have the drive and determination to take decisive action, advance them at a rapid pace and see them through to completion. When I shared my exciting Goals with my "friend," their response was not encouraging and enthusiastic. All I got was negativity and discouragement. I knew this friend was having some...(article continues at:)

A Full Stomach Equals a Full Mind By: Elizabeth Yarnell

Wednesday, 17 October 2007 09:58:21 GMT

It seems as if the school year begins earlier and earlier each year. Politicians would have you believe that as long as kids are in the classroom, they are learning. In truth, there is so much more to learning than simply showing up: eating the right foods helps, too. Studies have shown that malnourished children have a harder time staying focused in the classroom. Many of the foods that make up a Standard American Diet -fast food, packaged snack foods, and refined grains - are low in nutritional value per calorie. They are literally designed simply to...(article continues at: )

The Wonders of Magnesium By: Dr Christiane Northrup

Wednesday, 10 October 2007 15:05:35 GMT

Knowing the vast benefits that magnesium confers on our bodies, I've always wanted to report on this remarkable mineral . . . and now the time has come! I was first introduced to the wonders of magnesium during my obstetrical training where I saw, up close and personal, how effective magnesium sulfate was in preventing seizures and restoring normal blood pressure in pregnant women suffering from toxemia. Years later, I often gave my patients magnesium intravenously (along with a series of other vitamins) as part of an IV mix known as Meyer's formula. I found that this mixture frequently relieved muscular pain and also promoted speedy healing from surgery, sprained ankles, and the like. It also appeared to...(article continues at:)

10 Truths About Losing 10kg Of Body Fat By: Tim Goodwin

Wednesday, 10 October 2007 15:12:38 GMT

How many times have you seen adverts in magazines, on the tv, or on the Internet that promise overnight weight loss akin to losing a vital limb in weight. A miracle herbal remedy, the "secret" diet, or a 5 minute a day exercise routine that offers to shed kilos off your figure. Do you think if it was really that simple that we would still be in the grip of a global obesity problem? Despite all these so called health foods, increased sales of fitness equipment and revolutionary diets, why are we still gaining weight! 012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789 Sadly, the often very suspect science and marketing of "health" products has just served to confuse many of us. Even the lesser educated, but well-meaning, health practitioners have been suckered into the search for the latest quick fix, selling supplements and pointless exercise equipment. What follows is my 10 truths about losing body fat...(article continues at:)

This Halloween: Know Where Your Chocolate Comes From By: Beth Greer, Super Natural Mom

Wednesday, 10 October 2007 15:32:45 GMT

Sure the costumes are cute, and the house decorations clever, but let's face it, for kids, Halloween is all about the candy. If you're like me, and your kids bring home way too many treats, you might want to consider mailing the chocolate ones back to Nestlé, M and M/Mars and Hershey. Why? Because, according to media reports, these and other chocolate makers buy cocoa from plantations that use child slaves in the harvesting of cocoa beans. The reports have unveiled stories about boys, as young as 9 years old, who were tricked or sold into slavery, to work on cocoa plantations in the Ivory Coast (Cote D'Ivoire) in West Africa. This small country is the world's major supplier of cocoa, providing 43% of the world's supply. The International Labour Organization, part of the United Nations, estimates that 284,000...

Charlie "Tremendous" Jones "Staying Young through Learning" By: Janet Attwood and Gregory Reid

Wednesday, 3 October 2007 13:12:25 GMT

GREG REID: I love that. Now, you can feel just listening to this energy on the phone that Charlie truly is tremendous and he got the nickname Charlie "Tremendous" Jones. How did you get the nickname "Tremendous"? CHARLIE JONES: It embarrasses me. I never liked it because people think I am either a football player, a wrestler, or a cleanser. I say this. When I didn't know your name, Greg, I would call you 'Tremendous' because I didn't want to call you 'Hey, you.' You sign all your letters 'Sincerely'--or I think you do--and I sign my letters 'Tremendously.' I had a habit when people would say, "We had a baby," of saying... (article continues at:)

Stalking: A Crime That Should Never Be Taken Lightly By: John Douglas

Wednesday, 3 October 2007 10:17:48 GMT

Everybody has heard of stalking. You hear about it on the news and read about it in magazines, especially in the celebrity and entertainment reports. But hardly anyone could rattle off a working definition of it, and not enough of us take stalking seriously as a crime we could all become victims of. The National Center for Victims of Crime operates a Stalking Resource Center (SRC), which can be accessed through their website at They define stalking as "a course of conduct directed at a specific person that places a reasonable person in fear for her or his safety." To grasp the seriousness of this crime, consider that the SRC states that 1 in...(article continues at:)

Is This the Proof that Spirits do Exist? By: Klaus Heinemann

Wednesday, 3 October 2007 10:28:15 GMT

"There is no doubt in my mind that the orbs may well be one of the most significant 'outside of this reality' phenomena mankind has ever witnessed." -- Klaus Heinemann, Ph.D. At first, it seemed no more than a curious coincidence. Professor Klaus Heinemann, a researcher for NASA, the U.S. space agency, was studying a collection of photographs his wife had taken at a gathering of spiritual healers when he noticed that many of them featured the same pale but clearly defined circle of light, like a miniature moon, hovering above some of the subjects. Like most rational people, he assumed that the pictures were...(article continues at: )

Workin' It Out Together By: Jim Sniechowski and Judith Sherven

Friday, 26 September 2007 10:35:07 GMT

In the early days of love it all seems so bliss filled and romantic -- and it feels like it will last forever. Then you settle down, get married, create a home, have kids and...where did the magic go!? There's so much to do, the errands never end, the house always needs work, the kids are demanding, and your love seems to have slipped away. Or has it? You wish you felt more connected. You wish it was more like it was in the beginning when you couldn't get enough of being together. And perhaps you feel overburdened and lonely doing the chores and making a living and taking care of the kids and... Well, please be kind to yourself, your partner, and your relationship and check to see if you both feel the same way. Chances are you do. And chances are really good that because you've...(article continues at:)

Discovering Everyday Gratitude: How to Live a Life Filled With Appreciation and Enjoyment By: Mike Robbins

Friday, 26 September 2007 10:42:25 GMT

Have you ever had something taken away from you only to realize how much you appreciated it after it was gone? I ask this question every time I start one of my speeches and seminars on appreciation. As I pause and wait for people to respond, many hands go up. Most of us have taken someone or something for granted. We only truly realized how much that person or situation meant to us after the fact. For example, at the age of 23, my professional baseball career ended abruptly when...(article continues at:)

Bullying Our Kids in Our Homes: Welcome to Cyber-Bullying By: Derek Randel

Friday, 26 September 2007 10:18:15 GMT

Last night Tom's daughter, Sue, came out of her room and said, "I got another one of those instant messages. It says, 'tomorrow you had better not show up at school or else'." She has been getting messages frequently. The result of this is that she no longer likes to turn her computer on. Sue is 14 years old and in the 8th grade. She has been bullied at school for a number of years and she has had a difficult time getting the Principal and teachers to end it. Sue has two disadvantages that make her a target. First, she has always had a weight problem, not extremely heavy but overweight. Second, her last name is hard to pronounce. This has led to numerous ways to say and spell her name. Others have been very creative and cruel. Tom is aware that she needs to lose weight but what can he do about his last name....change it? This should come as no surprise to anyone, but as technology changes so do the bullies. Bullying has gone wireless...(article continues at:)

When Nothing Seems to Work--Try the Opposite! By: Steve Hefferon

Wednesday 12 September 2007 06:02:00 GMT

From working with back pain sufferers my entire adult life, I've learned that when people are suffering, they will go to great lengths to find relief. Unfortunately, too many people are given very useful but incomplete information about what to do in order to get relief and regain control of their lives. I also know that people who are suffering can develop feelings of fear, anger, betrayal, and even hopelessness when their treatments don't deliver as promised. The trust they once had with their health care provider starts to diminish, and they don't know where to turn. Here is an e-mail I got from a young girl that illustrates my point:...

Pet Astrology - How Lakota Found Me By: Christina Collins

Wednesday 12 September 2007 06:10:57

Recently, the contaminated pet food scare terrorized my friends and clients, many requesting transit and timing consultations for their dear pets. Yes, a horoscope can and should be elected for animals - especially for observing health related concerns, also helpful in choosing a new pet for the family. (A pet that gets along with you, your family and with your other pets.) Your 6th house from your rising sign and your 6th house from your Moon is the house of pets (those that serve you). So you can look at the transits to your own 6th houses for the current situation for your pet. Well, I have been happily making my own pet food, cooking chicken, veggies and basmati rice (plus vitamins) for my 4 canine companions for the last 18 years. I felt such empathy for those who were worried about their pets, and such relief that I home cook for mine. . . and then my little rescue dog number 5 came into my life 2 weeks ago....and (article continues at

8 Tips to Lose Weight Easily: Just Cut Out Soda and Sugary Drinks Research Shows Those Sweet Beverages Pack on Pounds By: Connie Bennett

Wednesday 12 September 2007 06:15:27 GMT

8 Tips to Lose Weight Easily: Just Cut Out Soda and Sugary Drinks Research Shows Those Sweet Beverages Pack on Pounds By: Connie Bennett Soda and other sugar-sweetened drinks are on my mind lately. Not because I drink them myself, but because just cutting out the non-nutritive, sugar-filled, potentially harmful beverages is a highly effective way--if not the most easy way--to lose weight and improve your health. That's right. Just making that one simple diet change--- removing chemically created soda and other sugar-sweetened drinks such as sports drinks and juice drinks--could enable you to peel off the pounds - possibly to the tune of 15 pounds in one year. In fact, a recent scientific review published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition pointed out that a mere 12 ounces of sugar-laced soda a day could... (article continues at:

Roger Hamilton "Let Go and Get into the Flow" By: Janet Attwood

Thursday 7 September 2007 16:27:56 GMT

Roger Hamilton: I was in Singapore at the time, and I was in a position where they had actually flown out a guy who was coming out because of all the dotcoms that had gone down and so on. He'd come out to look at our business as well. I still remember really clearly he said to me at a board meeting there, he said, "Look, Roger, we could give you some more money but frankly, I think you're a terrible CEO." That's what he said. I was quite blown away by what he said. I remember seeing my sister that evening at a barbeque, and I just didn't even want to socialize or anything. My sister looked at me at me and said, "What's your problem?" I said, "I've just been told by this guy who's flown all the way from England that I'm a terrible CEO." My sister said, "What's the problem with that? You are!" I said, "How can you say that?" She said, "First of all, you are because you...(article continues at:

Back to School Brain Boosters By: Kymythy Schultze

Thursday 7 September 2007 14:31:15 GMT

When your child's verbal loop switches from "I'm bored, there's nothing to do" to "I don't wanna go to school!" you know the time has come to do your parental duty and properly prepare them for another academic year. You'll buy them notebooks, backpacks, pencils and books. But, are you also putting every effort into insuring that their brain is fully charged? A child with good brain health has the opportunity to be more successful in their schoolwork, and that translates to a better school year for both of you. There are many factors that affect brain health, and in this article we'll focus on a few things you can do to make a positive difference in your child's learning and memory function.

Looking Good Could be Hazardous Makeup, Perfume and Moisturizer May Contain Harmful Chemicals By: Beth Greer, Super Natural Mom

Thursday 7 September 2007 14:48:42 GMT

By the time you walk out the door in the morning, after slathering, and spritzing yourself with toner, moisturizer, eye cream, foundation, blush, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, gloss and perfume, you may have put enough chemicals onto your body to be hazardous to your health. Many of the chemicals in makeup have been linked to cancer, hormone imbalances and skin irritation. According to the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit environmental research organization, which conducted an assessment of more than 1,000 cosmetic brands, less than 1 percent are made from ingredients that have...(article continues at:


Thursday, 30 August 2007 18:56:35 GMT

When each of us had the privilege of becoming a sales professional, we all had our own unique experience. There was one common denominator however that we all shared. We all had to go through the following 5 stages. As you read through them see what stage you are in, ask others what stage they think you are in, and become aware if you are stuck in a stage that you don't want to be in any longer. I think awareness is the key to personal and business growth. When I discovered that I was... (article continues at:

Slowly Is Holy By: Scott Kalechstein

Thursday 30 August 2007 19:01:38 GMT

We're seeing a lot of interest these days in slowing down the aging process. We take Human Growth Hormones and state of the art vitamins. We take power walks and veggie juices. But how many of us take our time? There's a new time-release super-food-for-thought supplement that I've been chewing on lately: "The more I take my time, the more time I have to take." This may boggle the mind for a moment, but a quick review of Einstein and physics will help it make sense. Time is relative, and how fast or slow I experience its passing depends entirely on my state of mind. The presence of peace is found in the absence of rushing, and my peace of mind clearly depends on my slowing myself down. Do I want peace of mind? Is it a priority? Well, yes, it is...but first...(article continues at

Thursday 30 August 2007 19:05:15 GMT

Q: Now that the weather is getting warmer, I have decided to take my running workout out of the gym and into the great outdoors. I usually run for an hour three to four times a week at about 8 minutes a mile. As the weather gets hotter I have noticed that I'm having trouble keeping up my pace. Is there anything I can do to help me hang in there? A: Actually your body is telling you to slow down and you need to listen! It takes about 2 weeks to get use to running in warmer weather. You need to acclimate slowly to higher temperatures. Here are a few pointers to help you do that. When you exercise in the heat you can... (article continues at:

Summer is officially here. Finally you can pack away your jackets and get outside. Summer offers extras hours of daylight and with it the opportunity to spend even more time enjoying outdoor activities. For many, this means more time doing physical activities and playing sports. So, it's important to remember the potential dangers that also come with exercising in hot conditions. As long as you know the dos and don'ts of working out in the heat, then you can fully take advantage of all the fun of summer. What you should do:...(article continues at:

Wow. Al Gore certainly impressed people all over the world with his ability to show the effects of Global Warming in his documentary. Suddenly governments, environmentalists, scientist and others are taking notice - big time!

Block Rocks! By: John Carpenter Dealey

Thursday, 16 August 2007 15:25:37 GMT

Eric Butterworth wrote a book called "In the Flow of Life". In it, he said 'As the removal of earth by a farmer digging a ditch, opens up a channel for water to flow to his crops, so does the removal of obstacles by the student, open up a channel of energy to flow into his being.' This quote got me thinking. Here in Texas, we call something that interrupts the natural flow of things a Block Rock. A 'Block Rock' can be something that causes disruptions anywhere in your life - in your physical world, your emotional arena or even in your spiritual realm. Recently, I was watching the 1993 classic movie, 'Tombstone' about part of marshal Wyatt Earp's life. Many people consider this to be one of the five best westerns ever made. In this movie, Wyatt arrived in Tombstone and heard the story of...(article continues at:

10 Ways to Get Your Marketing Unstuck By: C.J. Hayden

Thursday, 16 August 2007 15:29:01 GMT

Have you ever found yourself knowing exactly what you need to do about marketing your business... and then not doing it? You are not alone. Many self-employed professionals find that the hardest part of marketing isn't figuring out what to do. What's hard is actually doing it. Marketing yourself can be a confronting process. Making phone calls to strangers, writing marketing letters, and talking about yourself and your accomplishments can bring up fear of rejection, harsh commentary from your inner critic, feelings of incompetence, and the discomfort of performing unfamiliar activities. If you let them, these inner saboteurs can stop you dead in your tracks. The good news is that you don't have to completely eliminate these internal roadblocks in order to move forward in marketing. It is possible to feel afraid or uncomfortable and still take useful action despite the presence of these feelings. Here are ten ways to quickly break through internal barriers and get your marketing unstuck...(article continues at

Aging Well - Four Ways that Nature can Turn Back the Clock By: Dr. Stephen Ruppenthal

Thursday, 16 August 2007 15:37:32 GMT

Aging can be a frightening experience for us all. This came home in a message I got recently from a reader, who says frankly: "No matter how many miracle products I buy, I feel my body is betraying me. It makes me want to give up. Just as I am beginning to figure things out, I feel it is so unfair that life is slipping away from me." These words touched me deeply, for I too, see what formerly were lines on my face now turning into creases. But there is a miracle that does not come in any package which is all around us, ready to give us ample nourishment far greater than that which is slipping away. Whether we choose to work with it or relax amidst it, nature is infinitely larger than ourselves and never grows old. Here are four ways we can draw sustenance from nature that will help us feel a freedom from our body's relentless clock... (article continues at:

Speed Networking...and Beyond! By: Ivan Misner

Thursday, 9 August 2007 14:32:17 GMT

Speed networking programs are showing up all around the world. These events tend to be a fun, exciting, and effective way to make a lot of initial connections in a very different environment from the standard business networking meetings. Speed networking programs generally involve people meeting each other one at a time for a short interval and then moving on to the next person in line. They are fairly structured in the way people queue up to meet. For example, one variation is to have two concentric circles of people. The individuals sit across from one another and after...(article continues at

Dr. Joe Vitale "Follow Your Passions, and Everything Else Will Fall into Place" by: Chris Attwood

Thursday, 2 August 2007 22:18:26 GMT

CHRIS ATTWOOD: That's so cool. A lot of people tell us, Joe, that they just don't know how to make a living following their passions. You've made an incredible good living following your passions. Would you go back to that time when your passions were just hobbies or just somehow not your primary source of income? Tell us how you made your first dollar following those passions. How did you get started earning an income doing what you love? JOE VITALE: That's a big question. I remember Jack Benny, who was a famous radio and early TV comedian. When he was in his eighties he was on a talk show and somebody asked him, and it might have been Johnny Carson, he asked, "Can you remember the very first laugh you got as a comedian?" Jack Benny was quiet for the longest time. He was known to be able to do this deadpan for the longest time. He finally came back and said...(article continues at:

Is Coffee Really a Health Risk? By: Dr Christiane Northup

Thursday, 2 August 2007 22:28:48 GMT

I don't know about you, but I love coffee. And I'm a big fan of Starbuck's when I'm traveling. It's a great place to meet, chat, and enjoy a good beverage. Coffee and I go way back. I started to drink it back in college in the 1970's. At the time, my dorm room brew was made from freeze-dried Maxwell House. That's what was available. And besides, it was cheap. When I was home, I liked to visit my grandmother who always made pots of fresh-perked coffee for me and my boyfriend. I continued to drink coffee throughout medical school. And while doing my ob/gyn residency, which often involved staying up all night, I lived on coffee--sometimes as much as six cups a day. I stopped drinking coffee when I decided to get pregnant. And interestingly, once I actually was pregnant, I, like so many women, couldn't stand the smell of it or the taste. I resumed drinking coffee after my children were born, however. But by the time I hit age 35, my body decided that it was time to...(article continues at

Men Are Human Too By: Jim Sniechowski and Judith Sherven

Friday, 27 July 2007 21:52:04 GMT

To hear many relationship "experts" tell it, men are still stuck in primitive, caveman mentality. These experts admonish women to be passive and play hard to get. Why? Because, in order for a woman to interest them, they claim that men need to be on the hunt. If men aren't made to feel the need to pursue and capture they won't feel sufficiently masculine and driven to conquer and protect the woman who excites these primitive urges. But these experts never say...(article continues at:

I can't even tell you the number of times I've talked with skilled professionals who can't figure out why their career has stalled. "I don't understand," they say. "I'm working so hard!"

Being a generalist is very demanding. You need to be...(article continues at:

Saving the Soul of a Nation By: Dan Solomon

Wednesday, 18 July 2007 22:36:42 GMT

Nations have come and gone down through the years. Some nations or tribes have stayed in existence for thousands of years, while others have become extinct before the year 200. So many nations have left a mark in our history. One must entertain the thought, is it fate or a pattern that keeps a nation from fading away?

Hurry Up and Wait By: Liz Tahir

Wednesday, 18 July 2007 22:47:27 GMT

Recently, I walked over to my bank for what I hoped would be a quick transaction, and felt I was in luck as one of the five tellers had only one person in her line, while the others all had two or three. So I headed for that teller. Big mistake. The customer being helped obviously had some sort of problem, and the teller moved back and forth taking care of it. And of course, I was afraid to change lines, for fear of getting in an even slower one. As I have so many times before, I wondered why... (article continues at:

Why Exercise is Important After Baby By: Tracey Mallett

Wednesday, 11 July 2007 14:23:36 GMT

Post-natal exercise offers a whole range of benefits for new moms. However, it's important to remember that you should always consult with your doctor before starting up an exercise program. What kind of delivery you had will determine how quick you can resume back to your exercise plan. It's generally advised that you wait until your 6 week post-natal check up. Caution is required before jumping back into an exercise program, especially with your abdominals. During pregnancy, your abdominals will separate from the added pressure of the baby. This is called diastasis recti. It's important that you minimize the separation, allowing the abs to function properly, and also before...(article continues at:

The Magic of Enthusiasm By: John Carpenter Dealey

Wednesday, 11 July 2007 14:36:07 GMT

Norman Vincent Peale often taught that "There is real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment. Those who are fired with an enthusiastic idea and who allow it to take hold and dominate their thoughts find that new worlds open for them. As long as enthusiasm holds out, so will new opportunities" When One Door Closes... One day, many years ago, Frank Bettger, a young and ambitious professional baseball player got the biggest shock of his life. He was fired! He had thought he was... (article continues at:

Suppress or Express? By: Dr. Ted Morter, III

Wednesday, 11 July 2007 14:44:52 GMT

"Big boys/girls don't cry." "Don't hit." "Don't shout." "Don't be angry." Our society has long advocated emotional "control." From childhood, we are bombarded with instructions to sanction outward responses to emotions. What's a body to do with all of these robust emotions bottled up all the time? Explode? More or less. Actually, it's more like "implode" - "collapse" inward. If the energy of emotions can't be vented to the outside, it will be released on the inside. Eventually, the body "implodes" with some sort of release. It "implodes" in a headache, or back pain, or knee pain, or stomach pain, or some other kind of pain. Pain is an excess of energy in one place. It's congested. And that congested energy can come from suppressed...(article continues at:

What Did I Do to Deserve and Create This? By: Cody Johnson

Friday, 15 June 2007 03:24:25 GMT

The other day there was a news item in the New York Times telling that 20 million Americans have lost their homes because of mortgage foreclosures and that many more are to be expected. So what do you think these people did to draw this into their lives? Last year, when our organization presented The Prophets Conference series "Just for the Health of It!" the question would often come up, "What did I do to create this health challenge?" From this, we began to ask why it is that many people have spontaneous healings and others don't. Why is that cancers...(article continues at:

Bust the Old Habits That Ruin Your Diet. By: Linda Spangle

Friday, 15 June 2007 03:27:45 GMT

"Once I lose this weight, I'll never gain it back!" Sound familiar? Unfortunately, these are famous last words for many dieters. It takes more than determination and willpower to make that declaration stick. In fact, when a group of dieters were asked what contributed to them re-gaining weight, their answers had a common theme. Nearly all of them said...(article continues at:

The Juggler's Approach to Wealth. By: Jim Bunch

How long do you think you can keep all that debt in the air before it crashes down on you?! As a life coach, I work with thousands of people who want to put themselves on the path to prosperity in every part of their lives. When it comes to helping them get on track financially, my first step is to identify their goals, assess their current situation and review the strategies they've used to create their current reality.

Rhonda Byrne "Faith is the Greatest Joy in Life" By: Janet Attwood and Marci Shimoff Marci Shimoff

Friday, 8 June 2007 16:20:10 GMT

That's great, Rhonda! Earlier you mentioned that you had challenges. Challenges came up in doing the film. Many people have challenges in going after what's right for them. How would you recommend to our listeners that they deal with the challenges they face as they apply the law of attraction or The Secret in their own lives? Rhonda Byrne: One of the first things is to take responsibility for your life. If something appears to you as a challenge, you've got to know that you created it. You may have created it by default, but you created it. One of the things that I think we do as a challenge comes along and we look at it as something separate from us, and we go, "Whoa, whoa, whoa - that person did that", or "How did this happen?" If you do look at something that appears as a challenge and just ask yourself...(article continues at:

You Can Be an Expert at Losing Weight By: Kenneth And Julie Schwarz

Friday, 8 June 2007 16:15:49 GMT

Here's a difficult spot many women find themselves in. Is this where you are? You're overweight, and you don't like it. It's really making you unhappy. How in the world did this happen? It's almost as though it happened without your permission. It just seemed to creep up on you when you weren't looking - you know, one or two extra cookies here or there, maybe more sometimes. But that isn't nearly enough to pack on all those pounds. It remains a mystery. Have you been too sedentary? No, you've actually been exercising. You've been taking walks or going to the gym or going to yoga classes or using your treadmill. So just where did this weight come from?...(article continues at

How Long Will it Take? By: Mike Scogna

Friday, 8 June 2007 16:20:35 GMT

My girls are 3 and 4.5 years old. They are brimming with energy and questions about everything: they want to know how it works. They are fascinated by growth--their own and everything around them. One day, the girls decided they wanted to plant something and watch it grow. They filled a small plastic box with soil, sprinkled grass seeds into the dirt, watered it and placed it on a sunny window sill. Then they sat and quietly, intently stared at the box for 10 minutes (shattering all previous records for silent time in our home). Just as I was getting used to the quiet, I heard excited shouts...(article continues at:

Aging Well - How Creativity Stops the Years in Their Tracks By: Dr. Stephen Ruppenthal

Wednesday, 30 May 2007 14:54:54 GMT

There is a vital relationship between creative expression and healthy aging. When we draw and paint, certainly we delve deep into the springs of vitality, increasing our sense of self worth, determination, and achievement. But the University of Kentucky's Prof. David Snowdon, who tracked the health of 678 Catholic nuns over 70 in his important Alzheimer's study, showed us much more: he was once given a priceless ceramic sculpture of Santa Claus perched atop a John Deere tractor by one of the nuns. She was Sister Esther Boor, who had taken up ceramics at age 97. When asked by Prof. Snowdon to join his project, Sister Esther had originally told him...(article continues at:

You Have to be a Real "People Person" to be Good at Networking. . . Right? By: Ivan Misner

Wednesday, 30 May 2007 15:02:23 GMT

A common assumption is that a "people person" is the best type of networker. But this isn't necessarily true. Actually, the only people who can't profit from networking or referral marketing are those who don't like people at all. But these are people who are not likely to be entrepreneurs or involved in sales of some kind in the first place. Most of them will be in careers that allow them to work alone in a back room where they don't have to come in contact with people. They're not going to be out there drumming up business. Most people who have started their own businesses and who depend directly on others buying their products or services have...(article continues at:

The Ostrich Approach to Wealth-- Do you have your head in the sand? By: Jim Bunch

Thursday, 24 May 2007 02:24:29 GMT

Over the years, I have had the pleasure of working with a fascinating array of people. While I relish all of the variations of personalities and circumstances that flavor each coaching relationship, I've noticed patterns and personality types when it comes to wealth creation and management. One of the most obvious dynamics involves those who seemingly have it all and wear it well, but beneath the surface are tattered, torn and overwhelmed. We all know people like this. They see a large cash flow every month. Behind the façade, though, they are caught up in a vicious circle. That is, the more money the make, the less they know how to manage it...the more they hide from the growing responsibility that comes with prosperity. I call this the Ostrich Approach: stick your head in the sand and try to hide from the chaos! There's just one problem...(article continues at:

Becoming a "Walking Meditation" By: Dr. Sue Morter

Thursday, 24 May 2007 02:29:15 GMT

It is important to realize that meditation is not a practice that one uses to escape in order to hide from a disruptive life, nor is it a practice for relaxation alone. It is so much more and provides the opportunity to experience ourselves from an entirely different perspective. We are afforded a way of 'being with' the circumstances in our lives and 'being with' ourselves in a way that removes the stresses of seeing life from a dualistic viewpoint. Good or bad, should be or shouldn't be, right and wrong begin to disappear. Peace surfaces. When we meditate, we...(article continues at:

How Do You Define Success? By: Bobbi DePorter

Wednesday, 16 May 2007 23:59:53 GMT

Success means different things to different people. Part of it is conditioning - if our parents thought one way, we did. How often do we sit back, go inside and think, what is success to me? What do I strive for? How do I know when I've achieved it? So think about, how do you define success? What does success mean to you? Traditionally, success may mean achievement of an objective or goal. It could mean gaining fame or prosperity. Or it might simply mean the opposite of failure. There is a different way to define success. Success can be...(article continues at:

In fact, it can empower you to achieve a whole new level of greatness you never dreamed possible. You might think this is just a sales strategy. It is a sales strategy.

Telling people the reason why you are doing something is one of the most powerful influencers of human behavior. Robert Cialdini, Ph.D. in his book "Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion" talks about an experiment by Harvard social psychologist, Ellen Langer, that concluded people like to have a reason for what they do.

The Fail-Safe Holiday Diet Plan By: Kenneth Schwarz, PhD

Wed, 6 December 2006 12:47:44 GMT

Everyone knows the equation: holidays = pressure + stress. Even when you try to reduce the stress, it's still stressful. Even when you're not being a host, just a guest, it's still stressful. When you're under stress, you can more easily be captured by the most prominent temptations in the environment. When it comes to the holidays and someone who struggles with her weight, the most prominent temptation is food. "I can't help myself," you think. "There's so much good food all around. It's just too tempting." All of this is real and true. However, it is what is in between the lines, what you're not saying, what you're not thinking about, that counts here. What is behind those words, beneath the surface? What is really driving your behavior?...(article continues at:

Saving for College By: Martin Weil

If you're like most parents, saving for your children's college education is a priority and a big challenge. Tuition and related costs at both public and private universities have been rising at 5% per year or more, far exceeding the rate of inflation. To put that into perspective, a child born in 2006 should plan on $110,000 in total expenses for four years at the average in-state public college; $300,000 for four years at a private university. Financing these costs for one or more children is going to take planning and, most importantly...(article continues at:

Aging Well Staying Connected Through Service and Community By: Dr. Stephen Ruppenthal

Wed, 22 November 2006 12:47:44 GMT

Mother Teresa of Calcutta used to say that the world is hungry for our help and our love. Whether we seek to help people, animals, or the earth itself, the world's need for our service has never been greater. And the funny thing is, the more we help, the more energy we get. That's because when we make a difference in life, we forget about our own problems, which are really what make us feel old. Of course, it fills us with sadness when youth passes away and we face deeper, very difficult issues of life. This may, for example, mean coming to grips with spendthrift tendencies not reconcilable with our earning power; or even the onset of depression, due to...(article continues at:

She peers into the mirror and sees only that her physical appearance does not measure up to the standards she has set for herself.

Read almost any book about sales and you'll see some reference to, "you need to have a good attitude." So what does that mean? Sometimes my most effective selling is when I have a "bad attitude" - when I'm more discerning and skeptical about whether a prospect has money or is willing to make the change. I get tougher then and force the prospect to fit into my procedure. So, for the purpose of this article, I'd like to redefine attitude and not talk about it in terms of good or bad, but instead... article continues at:

It's time for kids to gear up for school. So what does that mean for your child's diet? Hopefully not a strict diet of fast food five days a week as you run to football practices and dance lessons. The start of the school year can indeed be a busy time for families, but it is possible to make healthy meals even with time constraints. It just takes a little know-how. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "The percentage of children who are overweight has more than doubled, and among adolescents the rates have more than tripled since 1980."

Diagnosed With a Herniated Disc? By: Dr. Robert Duvall

Wed 27 September 2006 12:47:44 GMT

What is a herniated disc? You've probably heard people say they have a "slipped" or "ruptured" disc in the back. Sometimes they complain that their back "went out". What they're most likely describing is a herniated disc. This condition is a common source of back and leg pain. Discs are soft cushions found between the vertebrae that make up the spinal column (your backbone). In the middle of the spinal column is the spinal canal, a hollow space that contains the spinal cord. The nerves that supply the arms, leg, and torso come from the spinal cord. The nerves from the neck supply the... (article continues at:

In Sickness and In Health: How What You Eat Can Affect Disease By: Elizabeth Yarnell

Chronic disease sufferers typically receive detailed instructions regarding dosages of medication, but the conventional medical community is just starting to recognize the effects of diet on disease. For almost any type of ailment, choosing to practice a healthy diet can be an effective tool in any disease management strategy.

Nine Ways to Help Children to Cope With Loss and Grief By: Sally Sacks

Wed 13 September 2006 12:47:44 GMT

The biggest problem children have in coping with their grief is the inattention and lack of awareness adults have in the need to talk about it, express all kinds of feelings around it, and to help children to find a way to compensate for the loss. Often parents are ill equipped to deal with grief in their children, because they have a hard time dealing with it themselves. For example, many stoic type families just held it in, enforcing the need to be strong. If you grew up in a family like this, you would have no outlet to express your feelings. It would not be welcome and you would know it, so you hold your feelings in. These people become...(article continues at:

The brick blocks came in three sizes: a 10" x 16" rectangle, a 10" square, and the standard 3" x 10" brick size. Over time they spent hours creating structures.

Change Your Thoughts and You Change Your World: Teaching Kids the Art of Productive Thinking Sally Sacks

Wed 30 August 2006 12:47:44 GMT

Sometimes we think our thoughts are just there, immovable with no room for change. It is important as parents to teach your kids that they run their mind, and they can pick and choose their thoughts. You want to teach kids to choose thoughts that are productive vs. non productive. Kids think non productive thoughts all the time and often believe their thoughts.
