It's The End Of The World!

It seems catastrophic. It's not what's supposed to be going on. Terrible things are occurring everywhere. I can't believe this is happening to me.

Sound familiar? Have you been thinking these thoughts? For many people, this is what reality feels like right now.

Crazy things are being reported in the news. It's confusing. Frightening, even. We're grieving the loss of what should be. Angry at what is. Scared of what could be.
It's the end of the world as we know it.

I don't like it either. I'm surprised at the weird shift in the time line. The wacky alt-Universe I've seemed to have woken up in. My body is resistant to it. I want to change, fix or manipulate it and make it different.
That part of you that feels powerless? That feels like it's happening to you? That can't imagine anything good coming out of this?

That's your body. Your body only knows what it has experienced up until now. Your body sees things in terms of surviv…

Why More People Are Choosing Ayurvedic Medicines

Too many chronic ailments are on the rise and there is no health care to counter the spread of all these diseases. The result is that every individual is plagued with a plethora of problems and in their haste to keep up with everyday life; they end up popping too many pills. The health system that presently exists has a very mechanical approach towards patients and their problems, for them suppressing a problem is better than completely eradicating the root cause of it.

Though there is a system of medicinal science that has been in existence for centuries and takes a very holistic approach towards dealing with any health issue. It takes measures to prevent any diseases along with curing the existing ones. Though of course there are some diseases that do require allopathic medicines in order to be cured but that doesn't lessen the importance of Ayurveda. This ancient system of treating diseases with herbs and natural products originated in India and is highly practic…

How to Write a Good MLM Success Article

Good stories are fun to write but it does take considerable amount of time to develop. MLM success stories are not much different than writing about a human-interest story. However, one can easily wreck the story development if not used to writing such content. It's not like writing a blog post, it does require a stricter editorial stance. We will go over some tips to help you develop great success stories.
Focus on the storyline, first

In MLM success, you must find the storyline. This should be easy to find, especially if you helped your prospect achieve a goal. Think about the problem they were having in the first place. Think about the steps they took to get where they are now. If need be, conduct an interview to gather more details for your article. Keep to the facts and consider the humanity of the story and not the results. No one should care about what you earned from the story. Adding the end results for your prospect is important for the story.

When you have…

The CRAZY MATH to Growing YOUR Business

If you have room in your business growth plans for a small book that will make a big impact in your business... then read on.

When the home inspector finished inspecting my house, he handed me a DIY book. It probably cost him $10 at the store... but in return, he got every home inspector referral from me for years and years!

THE CRAZY MATH: Countless referrals = one $10 book

I tried the same approach myself. When looking to buy a new home, I gave the realtor a copy of a recent book I had published. "Thanks," he replied... then he said, "If you buy a house from me, I'll knock a $1000 off the price."

THE CRAZY MATH: $1000 discount = one $3 book

I honestly do not know what your math will be, but I guarantee it will be good! It will be far more than 1 + 1 = 2. That is because books have an uncanny way of making a big, long-term, highly beneficial impact.
Maybe it will come back to you in the form of referrals, open doors, respect, more sales, happy custo…

Mistakes In Choosing Corporate Event Tents

When planning an event some organizers commonly opt for outdoor venues. With this, you can create a unique ambiance guests can enjoy. Not to mention, organizing an event outdoors can also help you have better space. To make outdoor events better, it is best for organizers to opt for corporate event tents. Sadly, some organizers make mistakes in choosing that can affect your event. Below are some of the following.

Neglecting weather condition during your event

One of the main mistakes that individuals make when choosing corporate event tents is organizers neglect weather conditions. Of course, most organizers are focused on preparing for your events. Because of this, they neglect weather conditions. Because of this, there are cases when organizers may choose the wrong type of tent. For instance, some organizers may opt for open tents in order to have a good view of the environment. However, these tents are not applicable if you will be experiencing a rainy day. So, before …

Are KPIs Relevant to All Strategies?

In the Harvard Business Review this month, Martin Reeves of the Boston Consulting Group writes an interesting piece on how our increasingly uncertain world requires us to have a more deliberate strategy. He says our strategy needs a strategy. But with increasing uncertainty, is there still a role for measuring that strategy with KPIs?

Often I hear people saying that change is happening too quickly to get much stability or insight from measuring performance.

That's a bad assumption, because no matter what the rate of change, if we have a strategy then we have results we want to create. And measuring is the only way to know how much those results are happening. Why pursue a result if we're not interested in knowing whether we've attained it?

So it's more a question of how do we use measures in the most useful way, depending on the speed and type of change we're facing.

Strategy Approach #1: Classical.

Reeves says:

"This represents the traditional app…

You Just Don't Know When Your Remarks Will Be Requested - Unprepared Of Course!

Are you ready for that unanticipated call to add your comments at a meeting, awards presentation or to a journal/newspaper looking for input on a specific issue? Your "call to action" may be precipitated by something as innocuous as the absence of someone slated to do the job originally-might have been caused by a delayed flight, illness, etc.

If you are a senior manager or a "C" level executive, the best advice is to never be at any assembly without some mental or written comments that are pertinent to the meeting. Even if you are planning to be nothing but an attendee; never be anywhere unprepared for comments. Your crib sheet may include appropriate questions or observations, a simple statement or facts that are not widely known yet are relevant. For example, if you are a finance guy show your range by commenting on some information you read about the competition; but do not do it in a threatening way to the marketing department. Being participator…

Pride Doesn't Have to Precede the Fall

Everyone loves the humble, (apart from the envious)
They've learned to expose their pride,
Rather than inwardly grumble,
They'd prefer to be honest than hide.

That awkward moment when pride is exposed for what it is! That time when a true friend had the pluck to challenge us with the truth. When their courage flouted the relationship enough to pique growth rather than give in to the cowardice that resists conflict for fear of rejection.

That moment, these moments, are the moments of last chance; of reconciling the lie of pride with the truth of humility's capacity to respectfully pour contempt on that pride.

There's no need to suffer the fall (Proverbs 16:18) when someone's brave enough to love us through a challenge.

Sure, not all challenges are couched lovingly, nor are they all complicit with the truth, but all challenges can be heard, as impetus for God to test our hearts (Ps. 139:23-24).

It's all God requires of us; to peer into the glories of H…

Accept Who You Are

What is self-acceptance? How do you accept yourself? When you discover, yourself do you just stay like that? Well, these are the questions that an individual asks him or herself. Many people don't accept for who they are. And most of these people end up being failures.

Let us first describe what self-acceptance is. Self-acceptance involves accepting your weakness and negative habits. But the question is, do you accept and do nothing about your weaknesses or attitude? Do you give in to your laziness and look for excuses for leaving everything as it is? Well when you accept yourself and not doing any improvement to improve your habits, then that is not technically self-acceptance.


Many people don't usually understand the term self-acceptance. The term self-acceptance itself is not well explained either. In self-acceptance, accepting yourself is only the first step of the long journey of self-improvement. Just acceptance does not contribute to any sel…

Do Your Outsides Match Your Insides?

Have you ever found yourself saying to yourself, or to someone else, "Act your age"? What does that mean anyway? Does it mean that if we are a certain age, or have a certain status in "society" that it is not okay to be playful or silly? Does it mean that it's not okay to spontaneously dance in our living room? Does it mean that if we look great in jeans, or heels, that it's not okay to wear them because of our age? Does it mean that after a certain age it's not okay to listen and enjoy current music?

No one has determined an age limit to behaviors we enjoyed in our youth, yet many of us have beliefs, whether they are conscious or unconscious, that at a certain age we need to stop doing some things and think in a different way.

I'm not talking about an adult who is immature. I am talking about an adult who is a contemporary thinker, young at heart and spirit, and enjoys life to the fullest despite their age. I'm talking about allow…
