  • Are We Our Own Prisoners? 2018-11-21T09:00:00.000-05:00
    Sometimes, we are also prisoners of our thoughts and our past deeds. We also have nothing else to look forward to. We only have regrets. At least, we can do something about the conditions, but the prisoners can do nothing. Life can be depressing at times. How to inspire ourselves in such conditions?

    Imagine a person in a prison. He/she has been imprisoned for life and will wait till death in the prison.

    What can possibly motivate such a person? What do these people look forward to in their lives?

    Sometimes, we are also prisoners of our thoughts and our past deeds. We also have nothing else to look forward to. We only have regrets. At least, we can do something about the conditions, but the prisoners can do nothing. Life can be depressing at times. How to inspire ourselves in such conditions?

    What is inspiration?

    'Inspiration' the word as it is commonly understood means to experience a state of mind that propels us to work happily, try to achieve goals, and feel good about ourselves and the world.

    How to break open the prison?

    When we are not inspired and can set no goals, we feel that we are so helpless that nothing can be done. The first step would be to try finding stories of people such as Helen Keller who overcame so many difficulties to emerge victorious. That will give us a basic thought that things are not that bad. We will open at least one door of our prison with this thought.

    Then go back in your memory. Try and think of instances when you felt good because of some achievements. It could be something very small. Anything. Like coming first in the class in your second year in school, or getting a good remark from a teacher for an essay or for a math answer. That will break open another door.

    Now begin counting your blessings. Do you have a functioning kidney? Can you see? Can you hear? Can you smell? Are your hands ok and so on. Will you sell your eyes for any price? No! Who said that you have no money? You are a wealthy person who is unaware of your wealth, your blessings, Isn't it? This will open one more door.

    Break the last door open by thinking of the goals you might want to achieve. Believe that you can do that. Start planning. Think of ways. Talk to people. Be ready for a long struggle but with a firm resolve that you will achieve the goals. This will take you out of the prison of your thinking and make you a new person ready to fight.

    Get set to go ahead. You are a winner in making!

  • Break a Sweat to Break Your Stress 2018-11-18T05:30:00.000-05:00
    Want to live a stress free life? Discover the many benefits of how exercise can dramatically reduce your stress levels.

    Are you swamped at work? Do you always feel one step behind trying to catch up on all the chores on your "to-do" list each day? Do you toss and turn in bed at night thinking about all the things you should have accomplished that day, but didn't? All of us have experienced a hectic set of circumstances in our lives at one point or another.

    Maybe you experience stress every day of your life. This stress can lead to sickness, depression, and make you feel overwhelmed. Therefore, how can you combat this nagging daily stress?

    One answer is exercise.

    Stress comes in both physical and mental forms. The severity of stress placed upon your body depends on your job, family, and life obligations. Exercise will benefit nearly everyone from a mother of five to a single on-the-go professional. You can find a form of exercise to suit your needs whether you have just ten minutes of free time a day or can hit the gym regularly. Exercise has the potential to be a highly effective stress reducer. Following are common questions, excuses, and solutions regarding exercise in our daily lives.

    How does exercise affect the body? Won't it make me feel tired? On the contrary, exercise has been shown to increase "endorphins". Endorphins are the "feel good" chemicals that are linked to an elevation in mood. This endorphin kick can be akin to eating a chocolate bar. Chocolate has caffeine and hits the pleasure center in our brain. Exercise is similar in that blood pumps faster in our bodies increasing the oxygen supply to our brain. This endorphin rush is why many exercisers become addicted to exercise.

    Exercise has long been an antidote to stress. Exercise takes your mind away from the stresses of daily life while you run, lift weights, or engage in any activity that raises your heart rate. An added benefit to exercise is that it will help you sleep better at night. For many people stress wreaks havoc on their lives by causing insomnia. Make sure, however, that you don't exercise too close to bed time. The rise in activity and heart rate that exercise brings should be completed at least three hours before bed time. Each person reacts differently to exercise so test out different exercise times and see which time works best for you.

    How am I supposed to find time to exercise when my day is already filled to the brim with chores, kids, work, etc.? Before you brush off exercise time, take a closer examination of your day. Do you have down time? Do you spend time watching television? Many people watch television during the course of the day. This television time could be exercise time instead. Record your favorite TV shows and watch them later after you have exercised. Time exists for exercise; it is just a matter of making time and placing value on your exercise program and overall health.

    What type of exercise should I do to relieve stress? I don't want to be a gym rat and purchase an expensive health club membership. Good news. You don't need to sign an expensive gym contract to get your exercise in for the day. You can exercise from the comfort of your own living room or head outside and enjoy the fresh air.

    For example, break a sweat with exercise videos/DVDs. There are a bevy of exercise videos/DVDs available for home use that range for calming Yoga to boot camp kick boxing. Some videos/DVDs come with extras such as free weights, aerobic steps, exercise balls, and strengthening bands. It is like you have a personal mini-gym all to yourself. You can create your own exercise video library and rotate the different workouts to keep your exercise program varied and interesting.

    Strap on your walking shoes and head outside to enjoy the sights of your neighborhood. Walking is a low impact form of exercise. It is fun to walk with your spouse, children, and friends. Many neighborhoods have jumped on the walking bandwagon by starting walking clubs. They meet twice a week in the morning for an hour long walk. It is a great way to get to know your neighbors and exercising with a partner will help you to keep on track. This accountability is a great defense against skipping your workout.

    Many people want to get away from the stress of others. They want to walk and exercise by themselves. If this applies to you then you can listen to a tape or CD on your walk. It is a great way to catch up on books you have been meaning to read by listen to the audio version. Or you can listen to soothing music. Either way you can reduce stress from your daily life by placing your focus on other things besides all the errands you need to get done that day.

    Reduce your stress with exercise. It is a natural way to energize your body and calm your mind. Make exercise an integral part of your daily living. You will be glad you did as you enjoy each day, stress free.

Goal Setting Tips and Secrets For Success
  • 5 Tips To Achieve All Your Goals Successfully 2017-11-01T09:00:00.000-04:00
    Why do some people seem to succeed in all they do, but others flounder along at the rear? Mostly it’s because the successful people have set goals and take steps to successfully achieve them. So how do they always seem to achieve their goals?

    Here are five strategies they use:

    1. Start with a long-term goal, write it down, taking into account when you are going to achieve the goal and why it’s important. Try and be as visual as possible, explaining how the achievement of this goal will change your life for the better. Once this long-term goal has been documented, break the goal into tangible steps that need to be taken to achieve the goal.

    2. Make certain that you really want the goal. Ask yourself, "Do I really want this goal? Will this goal give me a better life?" Answering these questions will give you more drive to achieve your goal.

    3. Speak up.
    You should not keep your goals to yourself. Sharing your goals can help you get the support you may need from others. Some people are concerned with telling others about their goals because they are worried they will fail. However, telling others means that you are more likely to achieve your goals either with their support or in-spite of them.

    4. Write down your goals.
    This strategy is advisable for those who have a long list of goals. After writing them down, review them regularly. You may also want to keep them handy to keep you motivated.

    You have to discipline yourself to stick to what you have written. Do not just write them and tuck them away somewhere ‘safe’. Its better to keep them where you will see them, try sticking them to the refrigerator.

    5. Stay on track and do not give up.
    Reviewing your goals will help open your mind to see if you are on the right track. While on track, you may have to face challenges that might change the way you see yourself.

    Never be discouraged. Encountering obstacles is just a test for how dedicated one is to achieve the goals you’ve set. It will all boil down to you preparing yourself to face anything and doing everything to get to the goal that you have set for yourself. Only you can make it happen. Nothing can stop you if you have set your mind to it and commit to taking action.

  • 5 Easy Steps to Determine Your Financial Status So You Can Break Free of Your Job Sooner 2017-10-30T14:00:00.000-07:00
    Before you walk away from your job to work full-time from home, one of the most critical pieces of information you need to know is how financially stable you are and how long you will be able to survive without a weekly pay check.

    Here are 5 easy steps to help you plan wisely.

    It doesn't have to be unpleasant or messy, but it does have to be done. You may be well on your way to building a full-time home-based business or may just be tossing the idea around right now, but having a clear understanding of your current and future financial commitments will play a MAJOR role in your strategic plan for business success.

    Home-based business owners don't normally wake up one day and say, "Yep. I'm quitting my job today and starting a home-based business." There is usually a period of time for contemplation, exploration, making the decision, creating a plan, and then starting to execute steps within the plan to achieve the final goal.

    The process can take anywhere from several months to several years before an employee is in a position to walk away from her job to begin life as a full-time entrepreneur.

    Being financially responsible is critical to not only home-based business success, but to create the financial cushion required to transition from being an employee to a full-time entrepreneur.

    Understanding your current financial position is mandatory and doesn't have to take more than an hour of your time if you follow the five basic steps below.

    1. Calculate how much money you currently have sitting in bank accounts, investments, registered retirement savings plans, GIC's, real estate, etc. If you were to leave your job today, would there be any form of payout (ie. sick plan credit, pension plan contributions, unused holidays, anniversary pay, etc.)?

    2. Determine how much you earn on a monthly basis either through employment, child support payments, rental properties, dividends, your existing home-based business, etc.

    3. Record your monthly household expenses. Some examples to get you started are:

    - mortgage/rent
    - property tax/house and mortgage insurance
    - utilities (heat/water/hydro)
    - phone/cable/satellite/Internet
    - yard maintenance/snow removal
    - groceries and household supplies
    - vehicle fuel, insurance and maintenance costs
    - medical
    - child care
    - personal care (hair/nails/clothing)
    - entertainment (movies/sports/books/plays)
    - club memberships, publications, etc.

    4. List your monthly business expenses, for example:

    - Internet
    - phone (separate business line)
    - autoresponder
    - shopping cart
    - long distance
    - bank fees
    - office supplies
    - tools
    - web hosting
    - marketing
    - advertising
    - part-time help
    - coaching services
    - shipping/postage, etc.

    5. Identify your outstanding liabilities such as:

    - credit card balances
    - personal loans
    - lines of credit, etc.
    When you calculate your earnings and revenue on an annual basis and deduct your personal and business expenses. How much do you have remaining at the end of the year? Can a portion of this be put aside to build your financial cushion?

    If your current business revenue isn't enough to cover your business and personal expenses and if you were to quit work today, how long would you be able to survive on your other revenue sources or savings and assets, taking into account your monthly expenses?

    Have you considered all unexpected expenditures that could arise in the next year or two?

    Is your car running on its last two cylinders?
    Has your furnace almost reached its life expectancy?
    Is your vacuum cleaner starting to growl at you?
    Is your partner's job secure or do you foresee unstable times ahead?

    This exercise is by no means intended to scare or discourage. Financial stability is an area that needs to be addressed so you can keep your feet firmly planted and plans realistic as you build your home-based business.

    Understanding where you are and what potentially lies ahead will help you make sound financial decisions as you plan your future.

    After completing these five steps, you may realize your dream to break free of your job might take a year longer than expected, or you may learn that in order to move forward at a quicker pace, you may have to bring in a partner or investor, or learn to leverage your time, money and effort more efficiently to expedite progress.

    Perhaps seeking professional guidance on reducing debt and managing finances is in order?

    No matter what results you generate, don't let them shake your spirit. Knowing exactly where you are financially will help you make informed, practical decisions so you can create your ideal future.

    To increase your level of success at home-based business, make sure you have a financial advisor and accountant as part of your success team.

  • Aretha Franklin Died At 76 Queen Of Soul 2018-08-16T15:30:00.000-04:00
    Aretha Franklin died at the age of 76. She was know as the "Queen Of Soul" at her home in Detroit, Michigan.

    She died at 9:50am Thursday morning on 8/16/2018. It was said that she died of  advanced pancreatic cancer.

    Aretha had 88 Billboard chart hits of which 40 them were top hits.

    For eight years straight she was the best female R&B performer.

    Aretha had also won 18 Grammy awards in her lifetime.

    Although she was raised in Detroit, Michigan, she was born in 1942 in Memphis, Tennessee.

    Her father was a minister and a gospel singer and I guess singing just ran in her blood, because the woman could sing!

    The video above is by Ioanna17. I like this video because it plays " Aretha Franklin - I say a little prayer" and has lovely pictures of her when she was young.

    If you want to learn more about her and her career you can click here to go to Wikipedia.

    Rest In Peace Aretha and thank you for all the great music you have given us.

    You will be missed!

    This video is my favorite when she sangs "Think" in The Blue Brothers movie.

    Video above by Juanjo de Goya

    Below is Aretha's full memorial service by Global News.

    It is over 10 hours long. Not sure how long this video will be visible to see.

    In this last video of Aretha she looks so frail. It brings tears to my eyes to see her this way.

    This film has to have one of the best openings of all time. Not only is
    it dripping with atmosphere, but In 2 minutes it establishes the tone,
    the setting, the antagonist and the plot. What's more, it does all this
    without a single word of dialogue.
