Rev. Michael Beckwith and Stephen Lewis "Love Is the Passion That Drives Life" By: Janet Attwood

Wed 2 Apr 2008 08:02:06 GMT

JANET ATTWOOD: You said something really interesting. You said there are things that can't be treated, but nothing can't be healed. STEPHEN LEWIS: Absolutely, there's nothing that can't be healed. You can read about it anywhere. It's always been the case. You read about it in tabloids, you can read about it in the New England Journal of Medicine. They publish articles about a totally inexplicable spontaneous remission, and this and that. It's called healing. It happens all the time. I knew there must be a technology to it. I didn't know that it was a fusion, it was a spiritual technology. Michael is the one who opened my eyes to that, the thing that I thought was science and wondered about it. That's why ...

Do What Comes Naturally By: Jennifer Read Hawthorne

Wed 2 Apr 2008 08:05:37 GMT

My career as a professional speaker began when I was about seven years old. I'd gather all the children in the neighborhood and make them sit in rows in our driveway so that I could speak to them! Later, in the eighth grade, I heard that the ...(article continues at:



What Activities Are Preventing You From Exercising? Find Your True Priorities By: Lynn Bode, CFT

Wed 2 Apr 2008 08:08:53 GMT

Do you have every intention to exercise today? Did you wake up thinking today will be the day to start your new life, yet still find yourself going to bed disappointed in yourself? You are not alone! For many, it can seem impossible to find time to exercise. But wait, isn't it time to stop making excuses and examine what so-called priorities are sabotaging your good intentions? Starting an exercise program doesn't have to feel like moving a mountain. The vast majority of individuals who don't regularly exercise say ...(article continues at:



The Magical Powers of Laughter By: John Carpenter Dealey

Thu 27 Mar 2008 05:45:45 GMT

We have all heard the saying that Laughter is the Best Medicine. These days, science is going the distance to show that this is far from being just another folk remedy. There have been many studies on the beneficial effects and great value of a good laugh. Medical research and evidence show that laughter can actually help you help reduce stress, fight disease, and improve your overall well-being. Stress has been called the silent killer. Many physicians report that over half of their patients are ... (article continues at:



Staying Active in Cold Weather Months By: Lynn Bode, CFT

Thu 27 Mar 2008 05:48:29 GMT

With the temperatures plummeting this time of year, many of us tend to hibernate inside our homes. But, hibernating is for bears. As humans it's important to stay active through all four seasons. Yet, a poll of 5,000 people found that 30 percent get no exercise at all during the winter months. Just because it is cold outside doesn't make it open season for an excuse not to exercise. There are multiple exercise options one can choose to participate in regardless of what the outdoor thermometer reads. Depending on your location and likes, you can choose to workout inside or outside. All that is required for ...(article continues at:

Here's a quick and handy two step process for making sure your world is full of epic drama.

Selling Your Business -- Top 7 Ways to Maximize Your Exit Strategy Now for Maximum Profit By: Harvey Zemmel

Thu 20 Mar 2008 05:18:34 GMT

Leading financial researchers report that 75 percent of U.S. businesses do not sell. It dismays me to see entrepreneurs receiving so little in return for all their years of hard work. Or, having to shut their doors with no buyers in sight. It's even more disappointing, since businesses can easily take steps to achieve maximum perceived value for a potential buyer. It just takes a little planning, know-how and application to take a $100,000 a year profit generating business and sell it for either $200,000 or for over a million bucks? ...(article continues at:



Garlic is Heart Healthy By: Kathy Kastan and Suzanne Banfield

Thu 20 Mar 2008 05:20:03 GMT

Considered so sacred by the ancient Egyptians, it was placed in the tombs of Pharaohs. Believed to be so powerful by the Greeks and Romans, they ritually consumed it prior to going to war. So loved by the Israelites, they pined for it when wandering the desert. Of what are we speaking? Garlic... of course. Hippocrates and Pliny the Elder strongly encouraged ...(article continues at:



Relationship Advice: Why True Love Isn't A Fairy Tale By: Brenda Novak

Thu 13 Mar 2008 17:12:43 GMT

While doing a signing for my latest romance novel, a woman passed by, picked up my book, and immediately wrinkled her nose. "I don't read these kinds of books," she said. "What do you read?" I asked. She slapped it down on the table as if it was so far beneath her she couldn't bare to touch it any longer. "Something with at least a hint of realism." "I'm sorry for you," I said. And I meant it. Why? Because ...(article continues at:



Exploring Your Relationship with Money By: Jennifer Read Hawthorne

Thu 13 Mar 2008 17:15:02 GMT

Don't chase money-you'll never catch it. Debbi Fields I was once a member of the "I'll Be Happy When" club. If I could just find the perfect mate and the perfect job-and become a millionaire quickly-then I'd be totally fulfilled. I set out to achieve these goals with a vengeance. I thought success, especially the material kind, required it. In fact, I took a ...(article continues at:



Estate Planning Tips for Parents: How to Choose the Right Guardian for Your Children? By: Alexis Neely

Thu 13 Mar 2008 17:17:53 GMT

Estate planning and choosing a guardian to take care of your children is difficult. It's not easy to think of anyone else raising your children, no matter how loving your family members or friends are. Yet, you can make a tremendous difference in your child's life by planning ahead. And you have nothing to lose except a few moments thinking about what you value most in life, and in childrearing.

Marci Shimoff "The Keys to Being Happy for No Reason" By: Janet Attwood

Thu 6 Mar 2008 18:42:05 GMT

JANET ATTWOOD: Happy for No Reason suggests a whole new paradigm of happiness. What exactly do you mean by 'happy for no reason'? MARCI SHIMOFF: Happy for No Reason is a whole new paradigm of happiness. Before I go into what that paradigm is, I want to also say what the deal is about happiness these days in our society, because it's hugely hot. Everywhere you turn, people are talking about happiness. It's been on the cover of Time magazine. Publishers Weekly said in an article recently that every once in a while a new trend comes along in publishing, and the trend of today is happiness. In fact, they called it the 'new black'; it's the in-fashion thing. Part of why I think people are talking about happiness right now so much is that ...(article continues at:



Moving Free® With Mirabai - Need a Good Night's Sleep? Try Easy Aerobics By: Mirabai Holland

Thu 6 Mar 2008 18:39:14 GMT

Need a Good Night's Sleep? Try Easy Aerobics. Health experts recommend eight hours of sleep a night for most adults. Yet so many of us get fewer than six-and-a-half hours during the work- week.... We all love a good night's sleep. But did you know that not getting one not only makes you dull and stressed, it can also make you pack on the pounds.

Timeouts Can Cause Misbehavior By: Dr. Laura Markham

Thu 6 Mar 2008 18:41:57 GMT

Most parents nowadays try not to use physical punishment, which they know undermines kids' self esteem. Many experts advise using timeouts to "calm" kids down and correct bad behavior. But any child can explain to you that timeouts are still punishment. And we all know that sending a kid to a timeout it is not the best way to calm him! What's wrong with timeouts for disciplining kids? ...(article continues at:



When It Comes To Referrals, Quality Beats Quantity...Hands Down! By: Ivan Misner

Thu 28 Feb 2008 11:04:38 GMT

While it is indeed true that you want to get a good number of referrals, it is true only up to a point. Taking it to the extreme, you can get as many referrals as you could conceivably handle, but if nearly all of them are of low quality-hard to close or not very valuable when closed- you're no better off than if you simply sat at your desk and spent all day cold-calling. The same is true if you...(article continues at:

The Power of Being Present By: Jennifer Read Hawthorne

Thu 28 Feb 2008 11:13:47 GMT

This place where you are right now, God circled on a map for you. - Hafiz. Sometimes we get so involved thinking about the past or the future that we simply forget what's going on right in front of us. At times like these, I find it valuable to remember the advice of my friend Stacy, whose life was turned upside down when...(article continues at:



Boundaries Protect Who We Are By: Tim Murphy

thu 21 Feb 2008 16:28:36 GMT

The human life is precious. Many of us have gone through adversities in life that have given us the false impression that we are less than, or that we don't belong. Nothing could be farther from the truth. There's a purpose and a plan for your life. Because you are worth it - you need to protect yourself with boundaries. Those of us, who've allowed our self esteem to go down hill, must realize it can't stay down there. To begin to enjoy life the way it was intended we all need...(article continues at:



Back Pain at the Office By: Jesse Cannone CFT, CPRS, CSPN

Thu 21 Feb 2008 16:60:47 GMT

It's getting to be so bad that by Monday afternoon, you're already tired of being at the office. You're not even thinking as far ahead as Friday. Just getting to hump day is going to be challenge enough. In reality, it's not the folks you work with who are getting you down-they're tolerable, mostly, although there is that one guy in accounting. Where do they find these people? It's not even your boss, who, if he knew even half as much as you do, would be a shoo-in for Executive of the Year. No, the biggest pain in your...(article continues at:

Many Faces of Love - Laughter, Joy, Faith, Forgiveness and Gratitude By: John Carpenter Dealey

Thu 14 Feb 2008 01:38:25 GMT

Since the dawn of time, humanity has been looking for love. Ancient cave paintings hint at the importance of love in the earliest of societies. Throughout history, as far back as the ancient philosophers of Rome and Greece, writers have been writing about love. For centuries, scientists have been trying to distill the essence of love and merchants have been trying to package and profit from this marvelous thing we call 'love'. What is love anyway?...(article continues at:



Rewarding Employees Without a Reward Program By: Ruth Haag

Thu 14 Feb 2008 01:53:07 GMT

Have you noticed that the "Employee of the Month" parking places at many department stores are remaining empty? I can only assume that this particular reward program has been disbanded, but no one thought to remove the sign. Many reward programs are started with great excitement, and then fizzle out. The goal of reward programs is to create a gift that the employee will want so badly that they will work harder to obtain it. A secondary, unspoken, goal is for the supervisor to ...(article continues at:



The Family Dinner : Fast and Simple By: Cheryl Tallman and Joan Ahlers

Thu 14 Feb 2008 01:58:26 GMT

James Ray "Be a Student, Not a Seeker" By: Chris Attwood and Scott Martineau

Thu 7 Feb 2008 18:34:18 GMT

SCOTT MARTINEAU: Absolutely, absolutely. Let me ask you this. You do have an unusual adult experience, as well. You start off in corporate America, and then I don't know if you reject it, but you take a different path, and you say, "I'm going to study now with shamans in South America. You go from that to being featured on "Oprah" and "Larry King." You have an unusual path. JAMES RAY: It is, it is very eclectic; call me eclectic. I said I was a weird kid; maybe I'm just weird all the way around, as compared to the average individual. Who knows whether we can ever prove reincarnation or not? Every great spiritual tradition believes in it, including Mystical Christianity. Who knows? No one can prove it, and yet one of the theories in reincarnation is that you ...(article continues at:

Is Cellulite Your Fault? 10 Common Myths and Facts By: Lionel Bissoon

Thu 7 Feb 2008 18:41:09 GMT

Although about 90% of American women suffer from some degree of cellulite, it's not uncommon for many to think that, somehow, the condition is their own fault - that they must have brought it on themselves. Unfortunately, many boyfriends, husbands and significant others fuel this unwarranted guilt complex by suggesting that... "You haven't stayed in shape by exercising enough." "You've gotten fat, which is (obviously) the cause of cellulite. Cellulite is something overweight women get, right?" "There's nothing you can do about it. Your mother and grandmother had cellulite, so you're doomed to live with it - DOOMED! How's your sister doing?" Nonsense...(article continues at:



Mastermind - the Power to Change Your World By: John Carpenter Dealey

Thu 31 Jan 2008 10:00:01 GMT

You may have heard the word "Mastermind" before. In fact, you may already be a part of one, two, or even several mastermind groups. Groups of like-minded people focused on the same dream, the same goal, or with simply similar attitudes about life. Or you may not have heard this word. Mastermind. What does it mean? And, more importantly, how can it help you lead the life you want to lead... article continues at:



Contrary to What You May Think, the Referral Process is Not Difficult to Measure! By: Ivan Misner

Thu 31 Jan 2008 10:05:01 GMT

Most everyone who has ever tried to keep a truly accurate count of how many "cold calls" led to actual, cash-in-your- pocket sales knows that this is not an easy task. The good news is that it is actually quite easy to measure success from referrals! We know this because we've designed a networking scorecard for tracking referrals and the business that results from them. You might want to develop a similar one for your own use.

8 KEY CATALYSTS -- Speak with Good Purpose By: Bobbi DePorter

Thu 31 Jan 2008 10:10:05 GMT

Trusting Your Vision By: Jennifer Read Hawthorne

Thu 24 Jan 2008 11:30:56 GMT

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. -- Henry David Thoreau A vision is something that has been seen. It may be a fantasy you had at a young age that never let go, or a passion that emerged in a time of crisis. It might be born when you find yourself at a crossroads, no longer willing to do things the same old way. It may arise out of need, as an answer to a problem, or a deep soul desire felt within. And it may seem impractical-even impossible. But remember what the Queen said when Alice in Wonderland noted that one can't believe in impossible things... article continues at:



Laugh Your Way to Pain Relief By: Steven Hefferon

Thu Jan 24 2008 11:32:25 GMT

A man rushed into a veterinarian's office carrying his limp, lifeless dog. The vet examined the animal and told the man the dog was dead. The man asked if there was any way the doctor could revive the dog. The doctor left the room and returned with a cat, who sniffed the dog from head to tail then looked up at the vet and meowed. "Sorry," said the doctor. "There's nothing I can do." "Thanks for trying," said the man with a sigh. "How much do I owe you?" "Three hundred and fifty dollars," replied the doctor. "Three hundred and fifty dollars! Just to tell me my dog is dead?" "Well," said the doctor, "it was $50 for the office visit. The other $300 is for the CAT scan." Whether the above joke made you laugh or groan, it... article continues at:

Thu 24 Jan 2008 11:35:56 GMT

Mark Victor Hansen, the fabulously successful co-author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, has said, "Don't wait until everything is just right, it will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less-than- perfect conditions. So what? Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful." Steven E was partners with Chris and Janet Attwood and Mark Victor Hansen in The Enlightened Millionaire Program. Steven took Mark's advice and... article continues at:



Hobbies for Couples: How to End Solo Sport Resentment and Create a Lifetime Bond at the Same Time By: Kristie Macdonald

Thu 17 Jan 2008 10:22:08 GMT

One of the best ways to strengthen love is through friendship. And one of the best ways to build friendship is through good old-fashioned play. Now, of course, this may require some cozy conversation over a good glass of Chardonnay to remember what good old- fashioned fun was really like. But well worth the effort, according to a recent study that showed a strong correlation between love and play. Couples who...(article continues at:



The Fun Police By: Scott Kalechstein

Thu 17 Jan 2008 10:25:42 GMT

I have come to believe that how much joy I experience in any given moment pretty much boils down to how much permission I give myself to have it. Sounds simple enough, but for many of us, after a lifetime of withholding permission from ourselves, we might notice some subtle resistance to increasing our joy allowance. A few years back I...(article continues at:



Find Your Center and Reach Your Goals for 2008 By: Dr. Stephen Ruppenthal

Thu 17 Jan 2008 10:33:13 GMT

The New Year is a time to wipe the slate clean. With heartfelt zeal, we can earnestly make a new start. As the great Zen master Suzuki-roshi used to say, we contact what is called the beginner's mind, a real hope for keeping new resolutions about ourselves. Of course it's great to post such resolutions in your office or on the refrigerator, keeping them right before you as you strive for personal change. Since change is so hard, particularly in areas where we have shown considerable weakness, here are five helpful ways to find your center within yourself and hold fast to the new behavior in the New Year...article continues at:

When is it OK to be Rude? By: Ruth Haag

Thu 10 Jan 2008 19:33:50 GMT

The title of this column is a question that I often ask the attendees at my management training classes. Normally we are discussing how to discipline problem employees. My answer is: It is never OK to be rude. I often find that the person who perceives that they are in the position of power becomes rude. They get so focused on their power that they forget to think about ... (article continues at:



The Art of Relating By: Keith Varnum

Thu 10 Jan 2008 19:45:25 GMT

I cringed at every loaded word in the title of Dale Carnegie's celebrated book, How to Win Friends and Influence People! My mother-God bless her!-made me take the Dale Carnegie Training forty years ago when I was in junior high school. The idea that I had to change myself to "win" friends and "influence" people felt manipulative and distasteful to an idealistic teenager. But once I absorbed the authentic attitude of Carnegie's way of connecting with people, I ...(article continues at:



Paula Abdul "Desire, Not Timing, Makes Your Dreams Come True" By: Janet Attwood and Debra Poneman

Thu 3 Jan 2008 21:05:32 GMT

PAULA ABDUL: I finally got to work with my idol, Gene Kelly, and have tea with him during the last two years of his life. DEBRA PONEMAN: That is just beautiful. PAULA ABDUL: I dedicated my own video, which was where I created animation, where I danced with an animated cat, Skat Kat. I dedicated it to him. He was my mentor, and I wanted to dedicate that animation to him. When it got to him, he contacted my agent and asked me over for tea, so it was Tea on Tuesday. I arrived at his house like an hour-and-a-half early. I was sweating in my car because I couldn't...(article continues at:



Your New Year's Resolution: Take a Fresh Look at Your Productivity Habits By: Laura Stack

Thu 3 Jan 2008 21:07:52 GMT

The end of the year is a classic opportunity to look back over how things have been going and look forward to see how they could improve. January brings that fresh start that we all long for - let's make the most of it! Think of all the things that drive you crazy - the biggest obstacles to your personal and professional productivity. For sanity's sake, you might have chosen to pick your battles and resigned yourself to some pretty ridiculous productivity drains over the years. Maybe you decided that a staff meeting at work will always be a waste of time and have given up the good fight on making it better. Or it might be as simple as giving up on making it out the door with a decent breakfast in your belly. Not this year! Let's take 2008 by storm and...(article continues at:

Visiting Children and Your Dog By: Colleen Pelar

Fri 28 Dec 2007 17:03:21 GMT

Kevin came over to play today. For the past two hours, he and my 6-year-old son Brandon have been running through the house playing hide and seek. They've gone in every room at least twice, have repeatedly hollered up and down the stairs, and have even attempted to sneak up behind me a few times, but their giggling always gives them away. The boys are having a wonderful visit. This whole time, my dog, Gordo, has been in his crate. Gordo is...(article continues at:



The Terror-List By: Scott Kalechstein

Thu 20 Dec 2007 11:35:08 GMT

"Resist not evil." - Jesus The Christ - In a cave between my ears there hides a terrorist who has been waging a holy war for a very long time. He believes that he is justified in using force and fear tactics, and that it is necessary to hold my inner child hostage to create real change and growth. He presents a running list of demands - all the things I must accomplish before I can feel good enough about myself to love myself unconditionally. The list is never-ending, and somewhat insatiable. Whenever I meet a demand...(article continues at:



Aging Well - Guard Against Aging with Strong Relationships By: Dr. Stephen Ruppenthal

Thu 20 Dec 2007 11:40:27 GMT

As we pass into our forties, dip into our fifties or experience the sixties, and as the body inevitably loses looks and vitality, it is important to have forces at work that support who we truly are. One of these is the power of relationships. "Grow old along with me," says Robert Browning, "the best is yet to be: the last for which the first was meant to be." But how do relationships help us? Should we have the same kinds of friends all our life? When it is time to end a particular relationship? Here are four practical strategies to keep in mind...(article continues at:



Creating a Balanced Inner World for Our Children By: Sally Sacks

Thu 20 Dec 2007 11:43:43 GMT

We are all made up of many parts. For example, if we are fifty, we still have a part of us that is twelve. It may show up when we are at a carnival with our kids, or visiting a place where we lived at that age. We may be 60 and go to our high school reunion, and instantly, we are thrown back to being 16, and a junior in high school. We can experience the same emotions, feelings, and thoughts that we did back then. We may see a person that we adored, and cherish that memory. We create parts of ourselves that warn us and protect us. I remember when I first saw the movie Jaws. After watching that movie, I... (article continues at:



Dr. Andrew Newberg "Belief: The Essence of Our Being" By: Chris Attwood

Thu 6 Dec 2007 08:38:24 GMT

ANDREW NEWBERG: What I was so fascinated by was that, for example, when we did a scan of a nun in prayer, when we talked to the nun about the results and we showed her the changes in the brain, and so forth, she said, "Wow, this is really great. This helps me to understand how God has an influence in my life, how religion is so important, and how my spiritual side is connected with my biological side. This is great." She thanked me, and it was so wonderful that this helped to support and validate her way of believing about the world. I was equally intrigued by the fact that a number of people who were not religious, people who would describe themselves as atheists, would look at the same scans, the same data, and so forth, and they would come to me and they would say...(article continues at:



Success and Failure of Holiday Office Parties By: Ruth Haag

Holiday office parties are a tradition for most companies. Along with celebrating the holidays, they can provide a relaxed atmosphere in which employees can find out more about one another, and their families. However, if parties are poorly managed, they can create irritation and strife. The Best Party The first staff that I supervised was made up of college students. None of us were making much money, and no one could afford a fancy holiday party. We decided that a pot-luck might work. We found a large room in our own building, and had a sign-up sheet so that we wouldn't get too many baked-bean casseroles. On the assigned day we met. Everyone was allowed to bring along their Significant Other. It was a wonderful party. The food was fun. The party was a success and the staff worked better together afterwards. The Worst Party...(article continues at:

Work is Necessary; Struggle is Optional By: C.J. Hayden

Thu 29 Nov 2007 15:13:28 GMT

I hear from many entrepreneurs that marketing is a struggle. They just can't get enough clients to pay the bills, or they are spending more money to get each client than the sale is worth. So many of their efforts seem to fail. There must be an easier way, they tell me. I think there is. But making the transition from the hard way to the easy way can be pretty difficult in itself. That's because it requires the...(article continues at:

The Advantages of Living Out Loud By: Keith Varnum

Thu 29 Nov 2007 15:25:32 GMT

Every time someone asks us a question, we have a choice to make, "How much truth shall I express?" "How much of my True Self should I reveal?" Among our choices are the "convenient" truth, the "diplomatic" truth, the "socially accepted" truth, or the "absolute" truth that is, "the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God!" Do any of us even know the absolute truth about any situation in our lives? And can we ourselves handle the whole truth all at once about any subject? Let alone share that depth with others? I make a practical choice. I state to myself this daily intention...(article continues at:



Aging Well: Building a Legacy for the Future By: Dr. Stephen Ruppenthal

Fri 23 Nov 2007 09:45:23 GMT

Have you ever thought that giving your life to what you do best might help you feel the weight of the years much less? It sounds implausible, but if you think about it, we are all special. All of us have something to pass on to others, so that the best of us lives on. Even if we don't think we have them, all of us can discover and utilize our unique talents, skills, aptitudes, and character--whether we are 35 or 65-- to make a life-enriching difference. Even if we are not Mother Teresa or Albert Einstein, we may well be an extraordinary partner, parent, grandparent, or friend, without really knowing it. Or we may be that artist or teacher who can ignite the spark of enthusiasm and adventure in those who will be here after we are gone. Shakespeare lays down the challenge as he says, Look in the mirror and tell the face thou viewest Now is the time that face should form another. If you are interested not just in the undirected path of life, but in consciously leaving a legacy that will enrich lives you touch, here are four ways you can start right away...(article continues at:



Jeffrey Smith "Truth Triumphs" By: Chris Attwood

Fri 23 Nov 2007 10:04:37 GMT

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi once said, "There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer, no disease that enough love will not heal, no door that enough love will not open, no gulf that enough love will not bridge, no walls that enough love will not throw down, no sin that enough love will not redeem. It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how great the mistake, sufficient realization of love will solve it all. If you could love enough, you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world." At times, love for life and for humanity requires pointing out directions that do not support us in creating a better, healthier, more fulfilled world. Jeffery Smith has had the courage to do the research and bring to light the dangers posed by large corporations that put profits ahead of our collective health. Jeffrey Smith is the author of Seeds of Deception, the world's bestselling book on the dangers of genetically modified foods and the recently released... (article continues at:



Holidays with Ease: A One-Pot Turkey Dinner with All the Trimmings By: Elizabeth Yarnell

Fri 23 Nov 2007 10:05:03 GMT

A holiday meal is typically an occasion for breaking bread and sharing the hearth with our family, friends and community. While not everyone wants to cook for an army during the holidays, there is still something about having a traditional holiday meal that evokes a feeling of celebration and custom. It's not only the combination of foods particular to that holiday ritual that feeds the senses, but also the likelihood that the event offered an opportunity to share the workload increases the bonds of kinship and friendship. For those passing a holiday alone or with one other rather than a crowd, there can be a sense of deprivation with the loss of the opportunity to partake in the traditional feast of the season of turkey, cranberries and sweet potatoes. Here is a great solution to getting the meal with all the trimmings without spending hours and hours in the kitchen or facing a week of leftovers...(article continues at:



The Conscious Relationship Workout By: Scott Kalechstein

"As you may have noticed, relationships are not here to make you happy or fulfilled. If you continue to pursue the goal of salvation through a relationship, you will be disillusioned again and again. But if you accept that the relationship is here to make you conscious instead of happy, then the relationship will offer you salvation, and you will be aligning yourself with the higher consciousness that wants to be born into this world." -Eckhart Tolle The following questions and exercises are designed to be a vigorous ...

Making Sense of Scents: The Truth about Air Fresheners and Scented Household Cleaners By: Beth Greer, Super Natural Mom

Thu 15 Nov 2007 14:12:04GMT

If you are buying scented air fresheners and household cleaning products, chances are you are exposing yourself to chemicals that are bad for you.

Referrals are Predictable! By: Ivan Misner

Thu 15 Nov 2007 14:15:37 GMT

When you have a fully functioning referral-marketing strategy in operation, you will know approximately how many referrals you can expect, and of what quality they will likely be, over a given period. True, you won't know very far in advance exactly whom you're going to be selling to or how much the order will be, but that's true of almost all marketing techniques. So if you look at each individual sale, it may be hard to understand exactly how that sales opportunity came to you. A few years ago, one member of a referral-networking group (we'll call him Frank), a business owner who was well-liked and had received plenty of referrals, decided to...(article continues at:



Jay Conrad Levinson "Meeting Conventional Goals with Unconventional Means" By: Janet Attwood

Thu 8 Nov 2007 08:39:56 GMT

JAY CONRAD LEVINSON: Yes, I can answer that question because you're not asking it for the first time. When I graduated from the University of Iowa in 1956, I was drafted on my way to law school. I enlisted in the Army and I was lucky enough, of all things, to be assigned to the Counter Intelligence Corps, which sounds very 'cloak and dagger' and was. It was every bit what you'd imagine James Bond's life to be like as a counterspy, but I was in it for less than two years, although I was assigned to a section called 'Derogatory,' which meant that I only participated in cases about people upon whom derogatory information had been turned up. All the cases I worked on were interesting. I did surveillances and interrogations and learned quite a bit about...(article continues at:



Setting SMART Fitness Goals By: Lynn Bode, CFT

Thu 8 Nov 2007 08:42:12 GMT

Setting SMART Fitness Goals One of the simplest steps you can take when you embark on improving your health and wellness is setting your goals. Right? Actually, creating goals should not be taken lightly. To improve your success rate with achieving your objectives, you need to create a specific roadmap. You need to set up SMART goals. They need to be: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-Oriented. You need to state specifically what you want to accomplish. The goal should be very easy to measure. There should be no question at all whether or not it has been reached. It should be something you can truly obtain, not just an unrealistic dream. It should be relevant to your needs. You should include a deadline. So, the clichés of simply wanting to "drop some pounds", "fit back into your jeans" or "get bigger biceps", don't fit into the SMART model. Reworking these vague goals, though, will help you get and stay on the road to better fitness. The first example is losing some weight. Here is the reworked SMART goal:...(article continues at:



Our Children Are Our Teachers By: Penny Dee

Thu 8 Nov 2007 08:46:17 GMT

Having the great privilege and honour to be a parent, I find it alarming how little we understand the connected minds of our little ones. Children are still very much in the source energy and they can light up our lives and teach us plenty if we would stop telling for a while and start listening. Their message is clear. The bounce, optimism, inability to understand negatives, all of that and more are their gifts to us. When did you last see a child looking into the Ice Cream Parlour and noting all of the ones they dislike and why?? They go through the list and immediately jump for the one which to them has neon lights around it and is the absolute must-have. That is how we should live our lives. Look through the menu of life and pounce on the things which are absolutely lit up for us. With my own clients I liken it to...(article continues at:

How to Improve Your Customer Service Call Center So You Can Achieve Double-Digit Response Rates By: Ernam Roman

Thu 1 Nov 2007 10:04:53 GMT

When your customers buy an important product from you, they trust your company will support them after the sale. In many companies, this trust is being violated. Customers are experiencing "customer service blow-offs" and translate these experiences into your company saying: "You've already bought. Now our priority is getting more new customers." "You want service? Go figure it out on the Web or wait on hold for one of our poorly trained customer service representatives." Per my company's research findings, the damage from poor Customer Service Call Center experiences is serious. Here's how...(article continues at:

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

Wed 24 Oct 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:)

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.

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

Wed 17 Oct 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

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.

A Full Stomach Equals a Full Mind By: Elizabeth Yarnell

Wed 17 Oct 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

Wed 10 Oct 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

Wed 10 Oct 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?

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

Wed 10 Oct 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...

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.'

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

Wed 3 Oct 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 www.ncvc.org/src. 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

"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.

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.

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

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

Wedn 12 Sep 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

Recently, the contaminated pet food scare terrorized my friends and clients, many requesting transit and timing consultations for their dear pets.

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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

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.

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

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! We regular folks are also being affected by this global shift in climate and realize this is going to alter our world forever - if we don't make some drastic changes - and fast!

Block Rocks! By: John Carpenter Dealey

Thu 16 Aug 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

Thu 16 Aug 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

Thu 16 Aug 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:

It's not so simple to buy eggs anymore. Choices abound, from organic, cage-free, farm-raised, free-range, omega-3, biodynamic, local, pastured, fertilized, vegetarian, and natural, to the other end of the spectrum - irradiated.

Thu 9 Aug 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

Thu 2 Aug 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:
