    Many of our beliefs are just as crazy as they sound, but when we hear talking about them since our childhood (youth), we end up considering them as the norm.In Ancient Greece, for example, people thought that the Earth was the center of the Universe and that all the planets, stars and the Sun revolved around it. By the 16th Century, Galileo, Kepler and Copernicus proved the geocentric model wrong.Beliefs can be found in anything related to how we live our life; being it a relationship with a person, a thing or an emotion. Whatever it is we go through in our life, our mind can make it…

    Sometimes we come across a number of obstacles that drive us towards despair. We start feeling hopeless and frustrated. Success seems to be a goal that can never be achieved and with every step ahead, we find ourselves even more close to failure. No doubt, such situations are quite devastating….but do you know, you are […]

    “If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.” – Mary Engelbreit I know a lot of people who don’t like changes in their lives. They prefer to stick to their familiar life, with the same habits and behavior, the same job, and the same house. They fear change. I also know people who love and welcome change, and are not afraid of it. Actually, I think the middle way is to be preferred. This is my opinion. I value stability and safety, but if the change means improvement, then why not? The truth is people always…

    “Life is a journey, and if you fall in love with the journey, you will be in love forever.” – Peter Hagerty From time to time, particularly in a new year or after a difficult situation has resolved itself, many of us take the opportunity to reflect on how we feel about our lives. Often, we ask questions of ourselves. Am I satisfied with where I am as a person right now? Can I refer to myself as a successful person? Reflecting on possible change brings with it new opportunities for growth as well as new challenges, so what do I want to achieve in the months ahead? Allow me to…

    “If you panic, that’s a good way to lose.  You have to stay in control.”Our personal responsibility is what gives us the ability to either enjoy life, or hate it.  How we react to what life throws us, which is the one thing out of our control, is our choice, and our perspective can either give us freedom, or imprison us in a self-made world of chaos.I recently had an experience that made my ego go wham-bam-no-thank-you-ma’am, and I realized that we can stay calm in the midst of a storm and let it pass, or we can panic and find ourselves being taken away by the rage.Many of…

  • 3 Steps To Declaring Your Financial Independence

    D.j. Barrett
    28 Mar 2015 | 10:43 am
    Remember those times when you had to depend on your parents to provide you money for school? What about that time when you had no money to buy food and you were starving, but didn’t want to borrow money from your friend? It wasn’t a nice feeling was it? Nobody likes to bother or beg other people for money. We all want an abundance of wealth to live our lives the way we want to live them. And that’s only possible by becoming financially independent. Having people care for you is great, but being able to care for yourself is even greater! This is exactly why I believe our main priority in…
  • How to Stay Productive in an Open Office Space

    27 Mar 2015 | 8:10 am
    Open offices have once been considered signposts of innovation meant to promote collaboration and give a sense of community. Today, however, it turns out that working in an open space office has as many challenges, as it has benefits. The greatest difficulty many open office workers have is to stay focused during office hours and get on top of their daily duties. Looming deadlines and stress inducing work environment can negatively influence performance. Have a look at the list of ideas which will help you stay productive at all times.

    How many times you had the feeling that you are lost with a new subject at work? If you are like most people, probably many times... But don’t worry! It's super common in this day and age because we live in a very dynamic environment, with a lot of new information to handle every day and staying up to date is a real challenge. The hard truth is that if you want to grow as person in your society and in your job, you have to constantly keep learning new things. But, why exactly? 1. To perform, perform and perform. You can only succeed at what you are doing if you have the right knowledge to…
  • How To Achieve A Zen Attitude To Cope With Every Day Problems

    People usually have trouble responding and coping with every day problems. For a long time, I, myself, had trouble with my daily "problems".... Why? Because we tend to react the same way every time. Our brain is lazy when it comes to problem solving. It has a "tried" response, that is usually easy to implement, and fast, you don´t even need to think, you just react to a stimulus. For a lot of people this "tried and easy response" is anger. They react with anger to everything and everyone, and the reaction is an impulsive reaction, because there is no thought involved, just an emotions. But,…
  • 8 Things I’ve Learned Since I Quit My Day Job

    26 Mar 2015 | 12:06 am
    It’s been exactly one year since I quit my day job to pursue a full-time career as a freelance writer. Often that includes editing and marketing and other things so I’m not exactly writing 100% of the time, but I’m still living the dream in so many ways. Pursuing this career has taught me a number of things: 1. Everyone has to follow their own path. In my time in the corporate world, I learned that the 9 to 5 office job wasn’t for me. Some people, however, completely thrive in more structured jobs like that. When I was engaged in that world, I couldn’t see that. Since following my…

But YOU have to make a decision. A scientist believes she has found a cure, but she isn't sure. She has two versions and can't bear to choose between them. Her scientific estimates are exact, but she leaves the choice up to you. Now here are your two options. Read carefully so you can choose correctly. Cure A is guaranteed to save exactly 200 people.

  • Be a Social Architect of Innovation

    17 Mar 2015 | 9:00 am
    It has often been said that the best way to predict the future is to invent it. And continuing to invent your future is going to be essential to your future and the future of your business and its ultimate success or failure. Peter Diamandis said to me back when we had him on the cover back in 2013, “Either you disrupt your product and company or someone else will. Standing still equals death.” So the responsibility of leading innovation falls on the leader: YOU. You have to be the social architect of innovation in your organization. It is YOUR responsibility to…

    Today I want to discuss the topic of innovation and change. I was recently asked to be on a panel with four experts in the publishing industry. The burning question of the session was: “How has innovation changed the publishing industry?” You could feel the audience nervously shift in their seats. They knew this was a sensitive and wound-filled topic. The print media moguls who once dominated the global newsstands were now being walloped from every direction by digital and technological innovations. To prove their innovativeness each “expert” gave their…

  • What Makes a Great Leader? Part 3

    24 Feb 2015 | 8:00 am
    To conclude our series on leadership, I feel it only fitting to conclude with another example of one of my greatest leadership heroes. One of the greatest leaders I think the world witnessed, during our lifetime at least, is Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela's life story has long since become a legend, one that transcends borders, race, language, or culture. It would be absurd--let alone disrespectful to Mandela's achievements--to suggest that the issues you and I face as a business leader are as grave as apartheid, or that the stresses you and I encounter can ever compare…

    What is the first thing you do when you wake up? Do you pull your blanket above your head, so you won’t hear the alarm clock and continue sleeping? Maybe the first thing you do is grab your smartphone and read your mail, text to your friends, or read the news. Most people, when they wake up in the morning, are not fully conscious and focused. It takes a few minutes until they get focused. For some people, it takes much longer. Others, are more extreme, and don’t want people talking to them until quite long after they wake up. But what do you do afterwards? Everyone goes through a…

You’ll be more happy You’ll earn more money You’ll give and receive more love And because that’s the “normal” way we should want to go about living our lives. But then again, what is normal?

Or do you simply lie there, staring blankly at the ceiling, your mind just as blank? Motivation is the key to our existence. It is what keeps us going. Without it, we would be like lost sheep, wandering aimlessly in the fields. Although most of us have enough motivation to sustain us through everyday life, there are always those who are a step ahead of us, the ones who are driven by their motivation. The truly…

    There are speakers and there are remarkable speakers. You heard the former and you talked about the latter. The first time I joined Toastmasters was in June 2004. I have seen many speakers who know the mechanics of excellent speaking. I have heard thousands of speeches and I can only name a few of them. Some speeches I found difficult to remember after the speakers delivered them for seven minutes. As an evaluator, I found myself actively noting almost everything the speaker delivered so that I can share something of value. But most audiences aren’t evaluators. They do not listen to…

    One excellent exercise is to read aloud daily. Choose one of the standard writers, such as Stevenson, Ruskin, Newman, or Carlyle. I also suggest you read Og Mandino, John Maxwell, and Jef Menguin (I am drinking instant coffee this early morning). While reading critically observe your delivery. Read standing up, and as if addressing an audience. This simple exercise will, in the course of a few weeks, yield the most gratifying results.

Observe the methods of your favorite speakers.  Some of them will fit naturally to your own style and temperament. But to deliberately imitate others is a mistake.  Do not sacrifice your individuality. Jason said that he wanted to imitate me. He tried. I told him that he should stop trying for that will delay his growth, and make him look like a copy cat.

He is ready to tell us that he is the best in the world. That he is a self-made man (woman) and we ought to follow his ways. Most of the times, he shares his life struggles, but only to highlight the big gap between where he was and where he is now. He’ll make us cry with him. His trophy is a standing ovation and an admiring crowd. The second kind is the audience-centered speaker. He tells you stories,…

    As the most graceful creatures of the sea, jellyfish float effortlessly in their dark blue world. One might think jellyfish are completely at the mercy of the ocean’s currents, but did you know that jellyfish are swimmers? There are two ways that jellyfish swim—one way is by collapsing their bell to propel themselves. Other types of jellyfish can move many small cilia to rhythmically push water in the direction of their choice (see video below). 3 Steps To Live Like A Jellyfish 1. Chill out. Relax.  Life can be tough, but it doesn’t always have to be as tough as we…

  • How To Live Like A Snake

    Stephen Guise
    20 Feb 2015 | 9:55 pm
    Nice eyes (for a snake). Snakes aren’t found atop the “favorite animal” list of many people any person, but we can learn from their slithery ways. About a dozen times per year, snakes shed their skin and leave their old skin on the ground for someone else to clean up (I’m looking at you, park ranger). One way to live like a snake is to be messy and make other people clean up after you. Call me an optimist, but I think we can find a nicer way to live like this hissing reptile. Why Do Snakes Shed Their Skin? You are better than a snake. You know why? Yes, there are…

    Have you ever made plans for later, remembered the plans, and procrastinated anyway? Why does that happen? I’ve already talked about the reason why we procrastinate, and within that reason is a small, but critical detail that many of us—myself included—fail to internalize and implement with regularity. Failure to do it means you’ll fail to take action every time. It may in fact be the crux of inaction for most procrastinators. In order to take action, you must first terminate deliberation. When we make decisions, first we deliberate (i.e., weigh our options), and then we…

Last ski season, my final ski day was April 16 and I’m hoping that I can still ski until mid April this year. But I’ve already designed my post ski season spring fitness program for 2015.

With so many ski students taught over ski lessons with durations from one hour to five hours in total, I had many interesting experiences as a ski instructor.  Two such experiences really stood out for me. From Ski Student To Fellow Ski Instructor The first one was with a young lady named Angela.  She was one of my ski…

    Music In My Martial Arts I remember the first time the martial arts tournament circuit started to allow competitors to use music in forms (martial arts routines) competition.  These were usually black belt competitors who performed their martial arts forms with a music track background. Back in those days, the music soundtrack was usually on a cassette tape through a boom box at the division ring or if a tournament was large enough, it would be played through a PA system. This was an exciting time since the whole concept of using music in martial arts was so new and many of us felt that…

              My Ski Training Schedule For all alpine snow skiers past first or second timer level, ie, got through Discover Skiing – to have any significant improvement in your skiing, it takes mileage and ideally with coaching to make sure you are not continuing with bad habits. Ideally, you should aim to get in at least 12 to 15 ski days per season at minimum. Otherwise any changes, if any, will be minimal. I did not make this up – it’s well accepted among the ski pro industry and community. I do about 60 days per season. When I hear recreational…

  • Leadership: Strike A Power Pose - Douglas E. Castle - Taking Command

    10 Mar 2015 | 6:13 pm
    Command Presence is a necessity for effective leadership.  In some individuals, this is intuitive; in others, it must be developed consciously through instruction. To be a leader, you must make those around you feel, beyond a doubt, that you are fully in command and control. You must get people's attention, keep their attention and have them aligned to follow your orders or instructions.Command Presence is essentially presenting yourself as someone in authority, trusted and respected. This is partially done through the message conveyed by how you LOOK, how you CARRY YOURSELF, how you…

Founders are largely iconoclasts, rebels and disruptive types with the gifts of imagination, intuition and planning.

    Negotiating: Speak With One Voice When you are engaged in business (or other) negotiations on behalf of your company or team, be certain that you are always negotiating with one voice. Negotiating as an entire team (or as a fragmented group) will almost always work against you and your team in arriving at agreements, settlements or arrangements with vendors, investors or any other outside third party.Amateurs in the art and science of negotiating often speak with multiple voices when dealing with their counterparts on the other side of the bargaining table, and this usually yields poor…

    Pay attention today to what comes to you twice. God usually repeats an important message. If you have been praying and talking with God about things recently but not really heard back from him yet, then I invite you to ask him to repeat himself to you today so that you really get the message that he has for you, because sometimes he speaks and speaks, but we don’t hear him. He is speaking to us all the time, so open this door for him – allow his voice and guidance into your heart today by asking him to speak to you twice about the things that’s on your heart and mind, the…

But every time we talked about love, dating, and possibly setting her up, she’d respond with, I’ll leave things to fate.

By discharging these negative feelings, you will not only increase the happiness in your life, but everything else will get better too! Money, health, relationships, looks, you name it!” – Lester Levenson I want to tell a story from a friend that stopped me in my tracks when I first read it.

    I work for myself, which some of us call being a “solopreneur.” In a way that word sounds so lonely, as if everything is on your own shoulders. No employer and no employees to rely on. Some people think that means there’s no help, and there’s no room to be sick or a take time off. Well, I’m here to contradict those stereotypes: There IS Support.

For starters, the Illinois politician never sponsored a bill that became a law. But more importantly, Schock, who has come under fire because of a spending scandal, is best known for a ‘Downton Abby’-inspired office and bare-chested cover photo for Men’s Health.

      Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning is a truly inspiring book, a story of how he went through the concentration Nazi death camps, barely survived, and lived to tell the story of how the immense torture and suffering taught him about what life is really all about. Now Frankl is remembered as a psychiatrist who spent his years helping others find meaning in life. In this video, Viktor Frankl talks about being idealists, and how setting high expectations allows you to be average, but setting the highest expectations allows you to achieve high expectations.

And shockingly he has invested in Google (pre-IPO), Five Guys, Vitamin Water, Muscle Milk and a bunch of other tech start-ups. This enlightening video brought to you by  really showcases another side of Shaq. We knew he was funny, but we didn’t know about his intellect and genius scope.

    In a documentary (Bones Brigade Documentary), Tony Hawk states that when he was around 11 years old, he’d already been to the hospital so many times. The first time he tried to make it up a skate bowl, he broke his front teeth, and even though he had to go to the hospital, he knew right then that he was obsessed regardless of the injury.

OK so…I’ll explain. How often do you do things because you feel like you should? You know – those things that you don’t really want to do, but you end up doing them anyway out of some kind of obligation. Those are the things that hurt us the most deeply are they not?

You see – she was having problems with her manager and this was clouding her thinking. She just couldn’t figure out if it was the manager that was the problem – or if it was the job its-self. She’d found in recent months that there were aspects of her role that she didn’t enjoy and she wasn’t really that good at. They just didn’t come naturally to her. And this was really getting her down.

  • Well Paid New York Times Writers Have Interesting Theoretical Discussion on Whether Poverty is Good for (Other) Writers

    “Do Money Woes Spur Creativity or Stifle It?” This was the dingbat question editors of the New York Times Bookends column considered worth debating this week. I’ll share my full comment on the piece in a moment, but first: can you even imagine asking this about practitioners in any non-arts field? I can’t! Gives you […]
  • Why a Course on Weight Loss for Writers?

    On May 11, I will be starting my next SavvyAuthors’ exclusive Weight Loss for Writers class. To my knowledge, you won’t find another class like it anywhere. But why a class on weight loss just for writers? Well, for one thing, writing is a sedentary occupation, so it’s easy for writers to gain weight. For another, […]

    17 Mar 2015 | 11:41 am
    Many years ago a colleague of mine and I were discussing narcissism when she shared "If you're not adoring them you're boring them". While the phrase may seem a little flippant and crass, it wasn't meant to be. She shared it at a time when I needed to add a little levity to my own dealings with the narcissists that were running rampant in my personal life. If you're not familiar with or have never experienced a narcissist, they're not bad people, let me make that very clear. They can be rather endearing, but they can also require a lot of energy.  And here's why… A narcissist is…

    I'm a people watcher by nature. Not in a creepy, stalker way, but in a curious, "what makes people tick" way. I enjoy watching people exchange with one another and  based on some of the things I've seen I've gotten pretty good at distinguishing the level of self-confidence a person has. Rather then share with you my many observations, I'd rather ask you to look at the following descriptors and think about which you would be more drawn to and why.

If you aren't familiar with the book, it's based upon the following: I love books that make me think and even re-think what I've either learned over the years or felt to be true. This book is doing just that. I'm thinkin' and I'm thinkin' hard, particularly about beliefs…how they are formed, where they come from, how they can be a filter or sometimes a place to hide, how they can build…

    Positivity is greatly encouraged these days, be it in the everyday life, for working on your goals and dreams, coping with the setbacks or finding solutions for your small-big problems. But it is hard to adopt positivity as a way of life and become a total optimist if you don’t know the uses of optimism and how exactly positive thinking helps you. If you are unable to have a blind belief that ‘if you think positively, positive things happen’, you may find it very difficult and even irrational to stay positive in every situation without any reason whatsoever.

By the 16th Century, Galileo, Kepler and Copernicus proved the geocentric model wrong.Beliefs can be found in anything related to how we live our life; being it a relationship with a person, a thing or an emotion.

    The Right Question

  • Reverse Engineering Your Life

    James de Garmo
    17 Mar 2015 | 11:32 am
    If you were to take a look at what you wanted your life to look like from the perspective of who you were five years ago, what would you see?  Would you see dreams come true, goals achieved, things basically tracking on schedule?  Or would you see a graveyard of your desires? It’s always awful when we don’t get what we want, but it’s sometimes even worse when we do.  Mostly this is due to what I call Damage to Desire, which I explain in The Right Question.  But what’s a good way to make sure this doesn’t happen again? One relatively easy way to turn a dream…
  • Perfectionism is Totally Flawed

    James de Garmo
    15 Feb 2015 | 10:28 pm
      For many years, I was what the average person would call a “perfectionist”.  This meant at the time that I wanted to make sure everything was just right before I’d call it acceptable.  I wanted every detail perfect.  I prided myself on my perfectionism. With the benefit of hindsight, I now fully understand that all I was doing was revealing how afraid I was that things wouldn’t be good enough.  I was worried that people would judge my standards as being too low if I allowed something to be called ‘finished’ when it wasn’t perfect. However, I want to illustrate some…

    James de Garmo
    17 Jan 2015 | 2:17 pm
    Cook it first, maybe? Or is that not a “basic”? If you’ve ever tried to master anything, you’ve learned the importance of “the basics”.  And there are a few things about the basics that it’s important to remember, re-learn, or learn the first time if you never discovered them. I’m going to share it a little anecdote here.  It concerns a monk who went to study martial arts.  There are many variations of this, but I’ll simplify it. For many months, the monk’s teacher told him to stand at a large bowl of water and slap the surface…
  • What you want is irrelevant, and here’s why.

    James de Garmo
    13 Jan 2015 | 1:13 pm
    Let’s face it, we’ve all done the “what if” scenarios, as in, “what if you had unlimited time and money”.  Where would you go, what would you do, what would change, what would be the same? As I cover in The Right Question, you don’t necessarily know that.  There are a lot of reasons for this, but the most important reason is that it simply isn’t real yet.  So there’s no reliable way to tell exactly what you’d do.  You probably think you know, and I’m sure you’ve thought about it, but you can’t know.  None of us really can. I remember once when I got off the…

I was attempting to put together my Monday post, but my brain was just not cooperating. And I never want to publish something I don’t feel is as good as it could be because then my audience probably wouldn’t like it very much, and I don’t want that to happen.  This experience is a great lesson…

    18 Mar 2015 | 3:47 am
    Frustration is a common feeling when it comes to working consciously with law of attraction. We have our sights set on certain things, and we just want them so badly. It is supposed to be so easy, and at the core, it is, but over the years, we haven’t exactly been groomed to become the all-powerful creators we truly are. In fact, we are led to believe we are not very powerful at all. Sure, there is a lot of lip service about being able to achieve anything, blah,blah,blah, but on the whole, we are not very positive, nor do we expect much. We are taught to get anywhere, we have to suffer,…

  • Law of Attraction: Acting ‘As If” Regardless of Your Current Reality

    Kelli Cooper
    13 Mar 2015 | 4:02 am
    Law of attraction isn’t about thinking certain things and then making those exact thing is about attracting experiences that feel the same as we are feeling now, that match our current predominant beliefs. Whether we are fully aware of certain beliefs and feelings…that’s another story, but I digress…. Though we often line up with the exact thing we are thinking about because it is a good representation of what we actually want. But, again, it’s really not about the thoughts, though they certainly play a role. And with that little nugget of wisdom, it…

    “You’ve got to know when to hold ‘em. Know when to fold ‘em. Know when to walk away. And know when to run.” - Kenny Rodgers I’ve learned what you don’t do is as important as what you do. The more things I quit, the better life becomes. The 3 best things I ever QUIT:   Golf TV “To Do Lists” Golf Golf and I were in a bad marriage. I would spend hours on the links, shoot my weight, and come home frustrated. As Andrea Bochelli’s song goes, it was “time to say goodby…” QUITTING golf was liberating. No more searching…

It was amazing. Nathan Sawaya was a corporate attorney.  He followed his dream to become an artist. How does he create art?  Legos. Nathan takes something average and creates something remarkable. Not only did he have the guts to change career paths,  he had the courage to share his art with the world. This got me thinking… There is an artist inside all of us. Seth Godin says, “Art…

    “Running water never grows stale.  You just have to “keep flowing”. – Bruce Lee This week I learned a valuable lesson. Flowing water does not freeze. We lost our water for the better part of 3 days. A pipe hidden behind a basement wall froze 2 different times. It killed our water supply. Fun times. It’s surreal when a modern convenience is taken away. It felt like we were camping in the 1790’s, but with lights, heat and Wi-Fi. The first time the pipe froze we cursed nature. The second time it froze everyone cursed me.  Yikes! After the first freeze…

    “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.”- John C. Maxwell There is a HUGE difference between being the boss and becoming the LEADER. Bosses are many.  Leaders are few. Leaders set the tone.  Leaders make everyone around them better. One of the leadership secrets I’ve learned is that leaders are developed, not born. Leadership is not given by a title or position. Leadership is attained by INFLUENCE. John Maxwell wrote, “Leadership is influence.  Nothing more, nothing less.” Early in my career, my leadership skills were lacking. I…

    Jeff Waller
    24 Mar 2015 | 2:46 am
    For many years, my son Daniel disliked math. The issue wasn’t that he was unable to do it; he simply found the subject boring. He struggled with his homework problems, and we both became increasingly frustrated. He certainly wasn’t developing a love for math, and every technique we tried felt counter-productive. And the kicker was that it was taking a toll on our relationship. Then, one day, an idea popped into my head which I believe was one of my best parenting moments ever. I recalled a scene from one of my favorite movies, Contact, in which extraterrestrial life forms sent a message…
  • 37 Affirmations for Teens

    20 Mar 2015 | 1:12 am
    In his work, What to Say When You Talk to Yourself, Shad Helmstetter teaches us that we’ll become what we think about the most. “Your success or failure in anything…depend on your programming–what you accept from others, and what you say when you talk to yourself,” he says. To illustrate this point, he uses the metaphor of a computer. The keyboard provides input much like the experiences in our lives and the work of our conscious minds. The printer and monitor are the output, which parallel the actions and results in our life. However, the real power resides inside the computer…

    According to current studies, only 20% of the population sets goals and as high as 92% of those goals are never achieved. That said, I’ve never met a highly successful person who doesn’t regularly set personal goals. Goals are critical. They keep you focused on what’s important to you, and allow you to make the best use of your 24 hours each day. When tackled correctly, they force you out of your comfort zone and help you to grow more each day than you would without them. And, perhaps most importantly, they give us control of our destiny. Just by setting a goal, you are taking an…

    One book that has had a great impact on my life is The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. According to Ruiz, the first agreement we must make with ourselves is “Be impeccable with your word.” Our word is our power to create. Words are seeds, and one word can change a life. We need to understand that the words we use are the most powerful tools we have. They can harm or inspire, build or destroy. Moments can be enormous in the lives of our children and students, and the words we use have a significant impact on those moments. Words bring attention to things, and where attention goes,…
  • Dealing With Middle School Bullying

    When middle school students are bullied by their peers, they’re at a much higher risk for low self-esteem, anxiety, stress, depression, and even suicidal thoughts. The bullies don’t fare very well either. Studies indicate that one in four ends up with a criminal record by age 30. A rise in anti-bullying programs has been seen nationwide, but many haven’t proven to be very effective. For starters, middle school students frequently have neither patience or interest in information that is deemed as parental advice. During this stage of adolescence in which the “know-it-all” attitude is…

What’s the primary motivation for them to achieve success? The answer is likely to surprise you. Most people think the Oprah’s, Richard Branson’s, Elon Musk’s and the Steve Job’s of the world were just highly ambitious. That they were simply destined to achieve greatness. We all think that they woke up one day with a dream and a vision and simply went after it. We think that is the case but that…

Most people are completely unaware that our motivation is a direct result of our own self-image. The less positive the self-image, the less motivated we tend to be. Therefore it is important to understand the importance of a good self-image in order to accomplish all the goals we set out to achieve. Here are some principles to follow when establishing a good self…

About 179,000 procedures were performed in 2013, according to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).

The power of one social media influencer sharing your post could be enough to increase traffic to your website exponentially.

The hidden gems are the ones dressed like everyone else on the street. I’m talking about the Clark Kent’s of social media.
