Playing To Win The Most
never play to lose the least
Life is an all-in game [FIRST_NAME]. You cannot dip your toe into the pool of life and expect amazing results. You have to jump in all the way. So says one of the people I love the most in this world.
When I go through the list of things that I am most thankful for and most proud of in my life one thing stands out above all; my sister Gina King. Growing up I was always the “big” brother who doled out advice and played the role of mentor. I am not sure if my impact has been great but, I have always been pure at heart with my intentions. As I have grown older and my three sisters have grown wiser I have found that Gina has inadvertently become an amazing mentor and life coach for me. My frequent conversations with her have been grounding and inspirational. Recently I had been puzzled over some interactions I was having with some colleagues. I was meditating on a solution when lo and behold Gina called me. Serendipity!
My paradigm is I am “in it to win it” and I expect everybody to be on board with this notion. If they are not I can find myself taking it personally and blaming myself for my leadership skills not being up to par and maybe even some self-criticism for being too pushy. But, the reality of the matter, since my imagination has nothing to do with reality, is that some people are not ever going to be all in and maybe winning is not that important to them. They play a game of “how to lose the least” while I let it all hang out with my all-in game of “how do we win the most”. Neither is right and neither is wrong it is simply how you choose to play the game. But, it does beg the question how do you ever expect to win when you are playing to lose? You see, if you are playing to lose the least that you can then winning is simply impossible. When you play to win the most that you can than you always will win. Let me quantify this. Winning at any cost? Not good. I am not talking strictly business here. I am talking about the game of life and all of the beautiful things life has to offer. If you are in a relationship, go all in. Don't play to lose the least by withholding and being prepared for the person to walk away. If that is what you are preparing for then that is exactly what will happen. If you are starting a business, going to school, rearing your children, don't play to lose the least, play to win the most at all of it. Playing to win the most requires you to reframe the way you look at the world and most of all taking a risk. There is a saying some people live by “Stick Your Neck Out and Dare the Blade”. It is easy to keep your nose to the ground and never stick your neck out. But, what will you ever achieve except getting to know the ground at your feet really well. I dare you to try it a different way. Take the risk. Let it all hang out. Stick your neck out. Play the game all in. Yes, there is much to lose but, so so much more to gain.
As for Gina, my life coach, mentor and inspiration, well, she is planning to climb Mt. Everest. She sets the bar pretty high. I suggest you check out her web site at http://www.ginaking.com there is a ton of free information and you never know you might get inspired.
Have a sensational week ahead!

Belief Makes Anything Possible!
If you want to succeed [FIRST_NAME], you must first believe that you can succeed.
The only thing that stands between you and what you want from life, is the will to try it and the faith to believe that it's possible.
The only true limit to your realization of tomorrow will be your doubts of today.
The moment you carry the conviction of belief, in that moment your dream will become reality.
If you think you can, you can.

three reasons it helps your body
Omega 3 fatty acids are comprised of EPA & DHA which are found in fish oil. These two components have anti-inflammatory effects in our bodies, and many diseases begin with inflammation. Supplements made from various fish such as mackerel, salmon, herring, sardines, cod, and tuna are often approximately 18% EPA & 12% DHA. Deficiency can arise if the diet is low in these fish. Taking fish oil has been reported to help with the following:
1. Lowering blood pressure: research has shown varying doses to be effective, some with as altitude as 3 grams per day of omega 3. Given that most supplements are only 30% total omega 3, one would have to look at doing the math to achieve the proper dose.
2. Lowering triglycerides: similar research to lowering blood pressure, approximately 3 grams of EPA & DHA have shown to be beneficial. However, flax seed oil which contains a different acid, ALA which can convert in our bodies to EPA & DHA has not been shown to be effective in this case.
3. Rheumatoid Arthritis: any " itis" is often correlated with inflammation. EPA & DHA with the anti inflammatory effects are helpful at reducing the symptoms of RA. 3 grams is often suggested by doctors, and to continue for 3 months for the results to show.
Things to know when buying a fish oil, all supplements have the potential for contamination, specifically with fish oil, mercury is of concern. Good brands that are known to be free of contamination include Alms Bio, Nordic Naturals, Carlsons, as well as Kirkland. Fish oil can come in capsules and liquid forms. Flavors can range from lemon, strawberry or to desserts like peach cobbler and key lime pie (from Alms Bio).

Receiving a Gift with Grace
by Madisyn Taylor
When we willingly accept compliments, we are reminded that others see us through different eyes.
Many of us find it difficult to accept compliments but easy to believe the slightest criticism. Today, right now, let's make a choice to fully accept compliments as we would a gift [FIRST_NAME]. Sincere compliments are gifts of praise. They are kudos given for wise choices or accomplishments or perhaps for just letting your light shine. There is no reason not to accept the gift of a kind word, but some of us argue against them, even giving reasons why they aren't true.
If we visualize the energy of a compliment, we would see beautiful, shining, positive energy being sent from the giver. That energy, if accepted graciously, would brighten our personal energy field. Our gratitude then returns to the giver as warm, fuzzy, glowing energy, completing an even circuit of good feelings. But if we reject a compliment, what could have been a beautiful exchange becomes awkward and uncomfortable, making it a negative experience instead. Misplaced modesty can ruin the joy of sharing this connection with another person. But we can accept a compliment and still be modest by simply saying “thank you.” However, if compliments are rejected due to a lack of self-esteem, then the first step would be to start believing good things about yourself. Try giving yourself compliments in the mirror. Beyond the initial feelings of silliness, you will notice how good it feels and can watch the smile it puts on your face. The next step would be to see how it feels to give compliments to others. Notice how great you feel when you've made another person's face brighten and how differently you feel when the gift you've offered is rejected. Having experienced all sides, you will be ready to play along fully and willingly.
We are our harshest critics. When we accept compliments, we are reminded that others see us through different eyes. All living beings crave positive attention, and we all deserve to have positive energy shared with us. Perhaps if we happily and gratefully accept compliments, we will give others permission to do so as well.
