We lift ourselves by our thought. We climb upon our vision of ourselves. If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and of yourself. Hold the ideal of yourself as you long to be, always everywhere." Orison Swett Marden 1850-1924, Inspirational Writer

Vicki is a cookbook author, cooking instructor and artist who loves to inspire people to prepare plant-based healthy food.

If I could share 500 words of wisdom to summarize what I’ve learned so far in life, these are the important things I’d want to pass along to others…

One definition of enlightenment is, "no problems." I like this. At first it seems simplistic, but the more you think about it, the more its wisdom is revealed.

Everyone desires to be healthy and happy, and as I get older I am beginning to believe that it is easier than we think. There’s an enormous amount of confusion, guilt and dysfunction surrounding how to take care of ourselves.

This, I believe, is reinforced by industries that profit from our ignorance. There are only two dietary and lifestyle choices – either we choose to live, and act accordingly, or we choose to die.

When one becomes aware, at a gut level, of the interconnection of all of life, many things are easy to understand. If something is good for you, it is good for the planet and all other beings.

Gardeners know that all living beings want to thrive. Put the right plant in the right place; give it the proper amounts of sunlight, food and water and it will lustfully live out its life. When a plant doesn’t flourish, it is either lacking in or getting too much of something, or being chewed on by something else.

Our bodies are similar in that it is our nature to thrive. If we are not healthy we may have emotions and beliefs that are chewing on us.

It’s interesting to note that insects tend to first attack plants that are unhealthy, and not getting their basic physical needs met. Unlike plants, we, at least those of us in the industrialized nations, have the privilege of choice and, in large, the key to being healthy is in making life-affirming choices.

If you find it difficult to make healthy choices, simply do what you do, consciously. With food, for example, when you eat, eat with awareness of what you are eating, and what went into bringing it to you, as well as how it makes your body feel. If you follow this practice, previously relished but not life-sustaining foods quickly lose their appeal.

The same holds true for all our behaviors, from work to relationships. Being in the present moment and aware of how we are feel is the perfect gage for knowing if something is life affirming.

Our thoughts are not always our allies and can drag us into problems, large and small. Today, I am old enough to look back on 60 years and can see how so many things that once seemed to be tremendous problems were created by me, in my own head.

Life, in its brevity, is sacred, as is the food we eat and the planet on which we live. Taking the time and effort to care for your own unique spark in this universe is one of the best things you can do for yourself and others.

And one last thing, have fun – I didn’t feel wise enough to write this until I went for a swim in my favorite place. A little fun goes a long way towards creating both health and happiness. And remember, that in the end all problems disappear anyway.

"Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering." Miguel Ruiz Author

Stress free Success

From The Secret Daily Teachings                                                                                You cannot bring what you want to you if you are feeling stress. Stress or any tension at all is something you have to remove from your system.                        You must let the stress go – it is the only way you can bring what you want. The emotion of stress is saying strongly that you do NOT have what you want. Stress or tension is the absence of faith, and so to remove it all you have to do is increase your faith!   May the joy be with you,  Rhonda Byrne
The Secret… bringing joy to billions

A great free way to encourage success and loss the stress free:.
The stress response: in the beginning it saved our lives, making us run from predators and enabling us to take down prey. Today, human beings are turning on the same life-saving physical reaction to cope with 30-year mortgages, $4 a gallon gasoline, final exams, difficult bosses and even traffic jams — we can’t seem to turn it off. So, we’re constantly marinating in corrosive hormones triggered by the stress response.

Attitude
Success comes to those who become success-conscious. Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure-conscious. – Napoleon Hill

Now, scientists are showing just how measurable — and dangerous — prolonged exposure to stress can be. Stanford University neurobiologist, MacArthur "genius" grant recipient, and renowned author Robert Sapolsky reveals new answers to why and how chronic stress is threatening our lives in Killer Stress, a National Geographic Special. The hour-long co-production of National Geographic Television and Stanford University was produced exclusively for public television.

Belief
There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. No one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, and belief. Napoleon Hill

In this revelatory film, discoveries occur in an extraordinary range of places, from baboon troops on the plains of East Africa to the office cubes of government bureaucrats in London to neuroscience labs at the nation’s leading research universities. Ground-breaking research reveals surprising facts about the impact of stress on our bodies: how it can shrink our brains, add fat to our bellies and even unravel our chromosomes. Understanding how stress works can help us figure out ways to combat it and mitigate negative impacts on our health.

Character is accurately reflected in one’s mental attitude.
Without a strong foundation built on positive character traits, success will not long endure. It is virtually impossible to fake good character. Phonies are quickly spotted because they haven’t the substance and determination to maintain the charade. Developing good character begins with a positive attitude. Your desire to be a good, decent, honest, considerate person must first take place in your mind. When you make the decision to become a person of character, you will also find that you are much more willing to do the right thing simply because it is the right thing to do. – Napoleon Hill

For over three decades, Robert Sapolsky has been working to advance our understanding of stress — in particular how our social standing (our place in various hierarchies) can make us more or less susceptible to the damaging effects of stress. Throughout the film, he weaves the grim realities of the impact of chronic stress with his wry observations about 21st century life. "The reality is I am unbelievably stressed and Type A and poorly coping," says Sapolsky. "Why else would I study this stuff 80 hours a week? No doubt everything I advise is going to lose all its credibility if I keel over dead from a heart attack in my early 50s. I’m not good at dealing with stress. But one thing that works to my advantage is I love my work. I love every aspect of it."

The film is based partly on Sapolsky’s best-selling book Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers: Stress, Disease and Coping. In addition to his professorship at Stanford, Sapolsky is a research associate with the Institute of Primate Research at the National Museum of Kenya. He is also the author of Monkeyluv, A Primate’s Memoir and The Trouble with Testosterone, a Los Angeles Times Book Award finalist.

Scientists from the University of North Carolina, the University of London, Rockefeller University and the University of California, San Francisco share their compelling insights into how stress impacts the body, giving stress a new relevance and urgency to our increasingly complex lives.
A National Geographic Special

Stress, worry, and anxiety simply come from projecting your thoughts into the future and imagining something bad. This is focusing on what you don’t want! If you find that your mind is projecting into the future in a negative way, focus intensely on NOW. Keep bringing yourself back to the present. Use all of your will, and focus your mind in this very moment, because in this moment of now there is utter peace.                                    May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne

4 Foundational Principles for Harmony in Your Home

 

Christa OLearyIf I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

I wish that someone had given me a blueprint for leading my best life years ago. I am thankful that I can share my more than 20 years of academic and experiential insights with you to help you design your own inspired life.

Practicing the Home in Harmony lifestyle guided me to a healthy, vibrant, and joyful existence. Although my life has had its share of trials, I am grateful for the journey—which has also been filled with glorious moments that have left me in awe. Each moment, good or bad, has brought me to where I am today. Collectively, these moments have given me the experience, training, and expertise to teach this amazing lifestyle to you.

The foundation of designing an inspired, healthy and vibrant home, body, mind and spirit is intended to help you define and navigate your own sacred path. Let’s look at these four foundational pillars:

1. Home: Our home environments either nurture us or drain our energy. You either walk into your home and say “Thank goodness I’m home,” or you look at the stack of clutter on the table and feel defeat.

2. Body: There is an old saying that goes something like this: “If you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything.” Our health affects every other area of our life. It’s important to create a body that exudes energy, good health, and vitality.

3. Mind: It’s important in our fast-paced world to find the calm in the midst of chaos. Gaining a clear mind is critical to living your best life.

4. Soul: Studies have shown that a vital component to finding bliss and inner harmony is to find your purpose in life and share it with the world.

When I step back and look at my life, I see a rich, luxurious tapestry woven from a vibrant array of colourful threads. At this distance, a beautiful pattern emerges. But my individual life experiences—the separate strands within the tapestry—didn’t make sense at first, because they were so varied. Similarly, the individual pillars of the Home in Harmony have significance on their own—but together they create a truly inspired life.

The four foundational pillars of the Home in Harmony can help you design the magnificent tapestry of your life. This is a template for extraordinary and inspired living. I encourage you to utilize its four pillars as the structure for a beautifully designed life.

Having an inspired home, a healthy body, a calm mind, and a radiant inner light will help you not just survive but thrive. More specifically, you want to develop a home environment that nurtures you physically, mentally, and spiritually; a level of health and vitality that allows you to move through each day with grace and ease; a tranquil mind that rises above the chaos of modern living; and a state of passionate purpose that lets you share your shining gifts with the world.

Successful Networker – Invest in yourself

"To have a breakthrough, you must consciously connect with the invisible forces that are everywhere around you, urging you to go beyond your old conditioning."—  Deepak Chopra

Commit to investing in yourself If you are interested in personal development it is “Extremely important” to you . No matter what it is you want to improve, no matter what you want to achieve, it will almost certainly require an investment or will be much better and be achieved much quicker with the right investment.

Diary penTake a moment alone with pen and paper, start by listing the areas of improvement to which you wish to commit. This is the hardest part, what you already know now needs to be written down.  Do not limit your thought patterns and write down  acceptable self improvement goals, and you can probably add quite a few more to this list once you start putting your life together or even in order…

Take a look around and see what resources are out there which could help youbuild blocks goals make serious inroads on those improvements you desire, they could be a variety of things but one always stands out  “An Extra Income” more money to do what you wish you could do with a little more, time with family holidays etc. Examine them carefully. There are a lot of scams out there, but there are also a lot of diamonds if you look carefully enough. Try to find at least one for each of the areas on your list. Don’t worry at this stage about how much money they may cost. All that should concern you right now is whether you believe they will help you achieve your goals better or faster, or both.

Once you have come up with the list of investments you want to make in yourself and are reasonably comfortable that, at least for now, this is a fairly complete list, the next step is to work out how you will pay for them.  One problem many people have, though, is that after they have paid all their monthly bills there is no money left to invest in themselves.   What may surprise you, though, is that no matter how much you earn you will almost certainly still find there is no money left after paying the bills. How can this be? A Discussion with your partner is advisable

The answer lies in Parkinson’s Second Law. You have probably heard his First Law – “work expands to fill the available time”. But perhaps you missed the Second Law – “expenditure rises to meet the available income”. Parkinson’s Second Law is often applied to bureaucracies and they way they can needlessly spend our money. But it is equally applicable to personal expenditure.  The corollary of Parkinson’s Second Law is that if you look carefully at your spending you will always find cuts you can make without impacting noticeably on your overall lifestyle.

Take an income..

Once you have done this, regard yourself as your own primary creditor. You owe yourself a lot of money, so start paying it back.

Pay yourself first. Before you pay anyone else. Do not feel guilty about doing this. Every day of your adult life up to now you have paid everyone except yourself. Now it is your turn!

How much should you pay yourself? Well, that depends, of course. It depends on many factors. Not least of which is how much you managed to save off your budget – make sure at least half of this goes to you. Some coaches suggest it should be a minimum of 10% of your gross earnings. But again I stress this depends on your own circumstances and budget. Just don’t allow it to be whittled down to almost nothing!

Put it in savings and investments that you resolve not to touch except when investing in yourself.

Create a Second Income

Network in blueNetwork Marketing provides all of us the golden opportunity to obtain our dreams and goals, quicker and with less time than the job which is fine until you have to retire! Then what? On the list at the top under advice and training training is paramount if you wish to succeed with the right guidance from people who know; should be what is it you want in Network Marketing or what you want from it.

Whether you work for someone else or have your own business you should consider ways of creating a second income. You can then reserve most of this new income to invest in yourself (well, the profit on it – as there will always be expenses).   One way you can do this is to set up an online marketing business. There are some major advantages of choosing this route rather than, for example, finding an additional part time job somewhere.

Your first step should therefore be to examine your budget very carefully, with the aim to go part time once your MLM is working. Think as a business person, either an employer or your own business and you need to show a profit. Step back and look at that business as if you were the finance director, it is surprising what cuts you could make and still continue to enjoy life just as much. Fine if you want the basics in life “SURVIVAL” but to get more you need to think outside the box. Network Marketing has al you need and it is part time until you and your sponsors feel you could retire form the day job or survival income job! Advice is always accepted if you wish to move forward and who better than those that have trodden the path before you, This does not happen for any or at least most employees..

Man on stringsThe first advantage is that you will be completely in control. You can invest as much or as little time as you like. As your business grows you may decide to give up your "day job" and spend all your working hours moving your internet business forward – but that is entirely up to you. There will be no boss looking over your shoulder telling you to speed things up or do things differently. Of course, you should also recognise this can be a disadvantage – you will need to have some good self-discipline to ensure you spend enough time doing the right things. That leads to the support you will get once you have decided what style or type of business you are comfortable with and keen to expand and move forward.

The second advantage is linked to the first. You do not have to work on specific days or at specific times. You can choose when to do this work. If you wake up in the middle of the night and cannot get back to sleep you can sit at the computer and do something to move your online business forward.

The third advantage is that once you have set up your business properly it willGold Bars begin to generate profits for you even if you do not put a lot of effort in to grow it. You will need to continue doing some work in order to maintain it, so I do not believe it is correct to call it "passive income", but it should certainly generate you high profits for not a great deal of work as long as you have built it correctly.

Be aware, though, that as with any other business an online marketing business will require you to invest time and effort. Do not be misled by claims you will often see that suggest this is a miracle "instant millionaire" formula. It is not! You can certainly become very wealthy if you choose to do so, but this will not happen over night. If the “Instant Income” where true; would we not all be doing it?

You will also probably find there will be a few false starts before you get yourOwel teacher own formula right.  Ideally you should take advice from an internet marketing coach (remember your sponsors & training) who have been there and done that and who can stop you needing to re-invent the wheel yourself, especially with sponsoring and your prospects . This will be free advice as your sponsors will help you before thinking of themselves, They want you too succeed and it will save you making costly mistakes and ultimately ensure you reach your goal faster if you choose the right mentors.

Take pride in how far you’ve come. Have faith in how far you can go. But don’t forget to enjoy the journey." Michael Josephson

Invest in Yourself

Once you have started the Business you have decided to ‘do’ not ‘try’ you can   help others  to achieve the same aims that helped you, often people have their own dreams and goals but too succeed you need prospects, thus creating that second income….Spending the additional income wisely is  not in company shares or bricks and mortar. You are going to invest in something far more valuable than that. You are going to invest in yourself

The essence of wisdom is to see that there is always a solution once you realize that the mind, which seems to create so much suffering, has infinite potential to create fulfillment instead." – Deepak Chopra
