Braving The Storms of Daily Life
conducting yourself in a
positive and optimistic way

The hallmark of the fully mature, fully functioning, self-actualizing personality is the ability to be objective and unemotional when caught up in the inevitable storms of daily life. The superior person has the ability to continue talking to himself in a positive and optimistic way, keeping his mind calm, clear and completely under control. The mature personality is more relaxed and aware and capable of interpreting events more realistically and less emotionally than is the immature personality. As a result, the mature person exerts a far greater sense of control and influence over his environment, and is far less likely to be angry, upset, or distracted.

Look upon the inevitable setbacks that you face as being temporary, specific and external. View the negative situation as a single event that is not connected to other potential events and that is caused largely by external factors over which you can have little control. Simply refuse to see the event as being in any way permanent, pervasive or indicative of personal incompetence of inability.

Resolve to think like an optimist, no matter what happens. You may not be able to control events but you can control the way you react to them.

Thank all of you for your patronage.

Have an excellent day.

Your Future Is A Big Adventure
Max Steingart

Prepare for your future, don't live in the past. Savor your good memories, and use any bad ones as lessons in life. You need to focus on your future not on your past.

Carve out a niche for yourself in your imagined future. Think, feel and see yourself as successful. To achieve any goal in life, you need to project your end result.

Think of the elation, the satisfaction, the joy you'll feel when you reach your goal. Carry these ecstatic feelings with you every day and they'll bring your desired goals into view.

Sooner or later, you can win, if you think you can. The cards you are dealt in life are less important than the way you play them. Every day you're offered a new deal and new cards.

Success is out there for you. Don't wait for it to come to you, go out and find it.

Wanna Lose Weight Quickly -Just Skip It!
grab a rope and drop the weight - how skipping rope may be your best bet

The best shape I have ever been in is when I was an avid jump roper. Using this one piece of gear is a fantastic way to burn calories and lose weight, and you can jump rope at your own level of intensity for any length of time. In fact, in only 15 to 20 minutes you can elevate your heart rate, work up a major sweat and get an overall energy boost.

From Muhammad Ali to Rocky Balboa, any boxer will tell you that skipping rope isn't something just for little girls on the playground. Few other exercises build timing and rhythm the way jumping rope does. It's a complete cross-training workout that combines elements of cardiovascular and endurance training with muscle strengthening. While you probably know how great jumping rope is for shaping the calves, glutes and quads, what you may not realize is that the constant turning motion of the rope will also tone your upper body.

Getting Started
If it's been a while since you last picked up a jump rope, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, coordination doesn't always come easy, so be patient. Second, when selecting a jump rope, the proper length is important: Stand with both feet on the center of your rope. If the tips of the handles reach chest level, this is an appropriate length. Finally, jumping rope barefoot is not recommended; proper shock absorption is necessary to reduce the risk of injury to your feet and ankles, so wear an athletic shoe with lots of cushioning.

Since jumping rope is so aerobically demanding, the best way to build stamina is to use interval training, which alternates periods of work and recovery. For example, jump rope for three minutes followed by marching in place. Repeat this four or five times and before you know it, you'll have completed your workout.

The Moves
All jumps start with the rope behind you, next to your heels. The speed of the rope comes from your arms rather than your feet; your feet follow whatever pace your arms set. Be sure to not flex at the wrist while turning the rope. Try to keep the wrist as a natural extension of the forearm. Here are four easy moves to help you get started:

Two-Foot Landing
This is just as it sounds. You'll push off your toes and land on both feet, bending slightly at your knees and pushing off of your toes again for the next jump.

Heel Dig
Jump on one foot while you place the opposite heel on the floor in front of you. As you bring the rope around, switch feet; continue to alternate as you jump.

Cross-Country Ski
The pattern is identical to the placement of your feet in actual cross-country skiing (one forward, one back), except you need to jump a little higher to clear the jump rope. In the landing position of the jump, you will open your legs in a stride position and then switch legs as the rope comes over your head for the next landing.

Jumping Jack
This is just like the jumping jacks you remember from fifth grade gym class, but the key is to coordinate the jump with the turning of the rope. Turn once with feet together, once with feet apart and be careful not to bring feet out too far to the side or you risk catching the rope on them.

Staying Grounded in a Chaotic World

1. Live simply and live deliberately. By choosing not to get caught up in the details of this fast-paced world, you are doing your part to slow down the . You will also discover that you have more time to enjoy being alive.

2. Stay in touch with yourself. Soul searching, meditation, and journaling are just a few of the many activities you can take part in to stay aware and learn as much as you can about your emotions, reactions, likes, dislikes, dreams, and fears. Having a solid sense of self gives you a firm foundation for living in this world.

3. Support or teach others as often as you can. This can help you form connections with people while also giving you an opportunity to make the world a better place.

4. Consciously choose what you will allow into your being. The media bombards us with visions of hate, war, and pain. Be judicious about what you read, watch, and listen to.

5. Acknowledge the beauty that resides around you. Whether you live in a sprawling metropolis or a stereotypical suburb, there are natural and man-made wonders just waiting to be discovered by you.

6. Nurture your ties to your tribe. If you don’t have one, create a community that you can belong to. Modern life can be isolating. When you have a tribe, you have a circle that you are a part of. Its members – loved ones, friends, or neighbors - can be a source of support, caring, guidance, and companionship.

7. See the larger picture. Remember that the way that you choose to live is not the only way to live. Widen your perspective by exploring other modes of being through research, travel, and discussion.

8. Embrace the challenges that life presents to you, and challenge yourself often. After a time, even the most exciting jobs or lifestyles can seem routine. Never stop assimilating new knowledge about whatever you are doing, and your life will never seem dull.

9. Move your body. In this busy world, it can be easy to live a sedentary life. Movement reacquaints us with our bodies and connects us to the earth in a visceral way. It also restores our vitality.

10. Make time for stillness, silence, and solitude. The world can be noisy, and we are subject to all kinds of noises nearly every waking hour. We are also often "on the go" and unable to relax. Being alone in a peaceful place and making time for quiet can help you stay in touch with yourself.
