Chart a New Course For Your Life
ten easy steps to change the direction of your life

In a past life I was an executive at a Fortune 100 company. While the pay was excellent and the stock options and benefits were outstanding, there was still something missing. I was completely thankful for the opportunity and to this day I am still amazed that they gave a thirty-something kid a chance at the brass ring. Nevertheless, everyday I would go into work I knew I was not living through complete truth. I was not fulfilling my destiny and the shackles of an 8-5 were preventing me from reaching my highest calling.

I knew I needed to make a change. It was very terrifying because I was being brought out of my comfort zone and I was letting go of an enormous amount of security. The time had come for me to change directions and chart a new path for my future. I charted a new path and now 10 years later I have found myself embracing the freedom, joy and satisfaction that only being an entrepreneur can bring you. If I did it, I am certain you can as well.

Here are a few tips that might help you reach your highest calling.

1.) Plan your attack and attack your plan. I have always subscribed to the “think it then ink it” theory. A goal not written down is simply a good intention. Sit down with a pen and paper and start creating your plan. Be specific and visualize each step in your mind.

2.) Embrace your failures. Your previous failures have simply been lessons for you to guide you to success in the future. It took Thomas Edison over 500 failures before he was able to successfully invent a working light bulb. Abraham Lincoln was on the brink of financial disaster just before he was elected president of the United States. There will be failures in your life. It is inevitable for people who try. Persons who don’t try rarely fail.

3.) Create a support group. You don’t need to go it alone. Ask for moral support from friends and family. Be careful because some of them may not be a supportive as you need and they can be counter productive. You can also find networking groups on http://www.craigslist.org and http://www.meetup.com.

4.) Fake it til' you make it. If the truth must be told, nobody really knows what they are doing in the beginning and frankly there are times in my life when I am not sure I really know what I am doing. Act “as if”… as if you are already successful, as if you are all ready doing what you want to do, as if you are on top of the world and eventually you will find yourself there.

5.) Pass it Forward. Quality success is a give and take proposition. You must give back what you are given. Find yourself a good mentor; somebody who has done it before with style and grace. Read their books and articles, ask them for there mentorship but, when you get to where you want to be don’t forget to mentor somebody else.

6.) Be patient. All good things take time especially success. Be patient, drill in and commit to the long hall. Success is a journey not a destination, so enjoy the trip and smell the flowers along the way.

7.) Celebrate Benchmarks. When you follow your plan and you start knocking out pieces of it give yourself credit for getting these pieces done; calibrate and then celebrate. You are on your way and these little successes are your mile markers.

8.) Soar with other eagles. Eagles soar alone and buzzards flock together. When you are successful you will be in the top 5% of people in the world. It is lonely on top but, you are an eagle and eagles are held in the highest esteem of all birds.

9.) Live in the moment. Don’t allow yourself to get dragged down by the past and don’t let yourself get paralyzed by fear about the future. Be in the present, work you’re plan and live completely in the moment.

10.) Don't look back. There will be days that you will question everything you have done. You will question if what you are doing is the right think. Once you have made the leap there is no turning back. Looking back during challenging days will only stifle you. You are exactly where you need to be in this very moment and with patience and courage you will see these days through. See tip nine and three for help.

Now that you are armed with the same arsenal that I had when I started, shake your tail tiger and reach for your brass ring. You will work hard but it is even more important to work smart.

Who knows, perhaps entrepreneurship is in your future as well. I hope to see your face on the cover of Fortune Magazine.

Have an excellent day.

Fear Is Conquered By Action
Max Steingart

Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood. When you dare to face the things that scare you, you open the door to freedom and success.

Most of your obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them or procrastinating about dealing with them, you would make up your mind to walk boldly through them.

Don't be afraid to take the steps you need to take to make those positive changes in your life. To fight your fears, you must act. Your fears increase when you wait, put off, or postpone. If you understood your situation enough, you would never be afraid.

The attainment of your dreams is but a determined action away. Successful people take action.


The Best Time To Exercise

Contrary to popular belief, women aren't the only ones with biological clocks. We all have them, and heed their ticking on a daily basis.

If you are a regular exerciser, you may have already determined your most productive time to exercise and follow a routine that works best for you.

On the other hand, if your exercise time varies from day to day, and it's wearing you out instead of pumping you up, you may be interested in the work of scientists who are studying the proverbial internal clock and how to best determine what time of day you should schedule your workouts.

Rhythm: It's not just for dancing
The secret appears to lie in circadian rhythms, the daily cycles that our bodies follow. These rhythms originate in the hypothalamus and regulate everything from body temperature and metabolism to blood pressure.

The rhythms result from the firing rate of neurons. They have conformed to our 24-hour light-to-dark cycle, and may be regulated and re-regulated each day according to the environment.

Warm is better
It is the influence of circadian rhythms on body temperature that seems to yield the most control over the quality of a workout. When body temperature is at its highest, your workouts will likely be more productive; when your temperature is low, chances are your exercise session may be less than optimal.

Body temperature is at its lowest about one to three hours before most of us wake up in the morning, in contrast to late afternoon when body temperature reaches its peak.

Studies have consistently shown that exercise during these late-in-the-day hours produces better performance and more power. Muscles are warm and more flexible, perceived exertion is low, reaction time is quicker, strength is at its peak, and resting heart rate and blood pressure are low.

Don't fix it if it's not broken
First of all, don't change your schedule if you feel good beginning your day with exercise. Everyone agrees that exercise at any time is better than no exercise at all. In fact, people who exercise in the morning are more successful at making it a habit.

And though it has been suggested that morning exercise may put some people at higher risk for heart attack, further research indicates that there is simply a generalized increased risk of heart attacks in the morning. If your schedule favors an early workout, emphasize stretching and a good warm-up to insure that your body is ready for action.

Other considerations
If stress relief is your goal, exercise always works, all the time. And if you're wondering when it's best to train for an upcoming event, it all depends on what time you'll actually be competing. If an upcoming marathon begins at 7:00 a.m., try training at that time of day.

Though training at any time of day will raise performance levels, research has shown that the ability to maintain sustained exercise is adaptive to circadian rhythms. In other words, consistently training in the morning will allow you to sustain exercise during a morning marathon longer than if you train in the evening.

You will be losing a lot of water so don't forget to hydrate. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon or 4 tablespoons of unsweetened cranberry juice to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder.

Power in Numbers
Bringing Our Positive Light to the World

Like tiny ripples that merge to form great waves, combined human intent is worth more than the sum of its parts. A single individual can initiate worldwide improvement by emitting conscious frequencies of love, beauty, goodness, and wisdom. A group of people focusing their energy on sending out light to the world can set the stage for positive global transformation. All of us possess the ability to channel love energy, to heal, to be a conduit for white light, and to positively influence our fellow humans from afar. Yet one person can only do so much. Imagine if each one of us took a few moments at the start of each day to send out light to the world from our hearts. Mother Earth would be quickly eased and the planet, as well as every organism and being on it, would be bathed in loving light. The world would be an infinitely beautiful place.

You can help bring about an earth where love triumphs over violence, air and water are nourishing in their purity, and people take pleasure in simply being alive. Alone, the light you emit is a wonderful healing tool, but when you join with others who share your intent to shine compassion and positive energy over the world, a powerful force is created. Your collective consciousness and collective light will wash over the planet, enveloping people, communities, cities, countries, and continents. Inviting others to send light with you can be a daunting task. People may question the benefits of sending light to an already broken world. You will likely need to explain that each person’s light joins with every other, and through the joining all are strengthened. Assure them that what matters is not technique or what religion or beliefs you hold but intent.

As more people come in mindfulness to send their collective light to the world, the power of their planetary gift will increase exponentially. You may already be affiliated with groups that would gladly participate in such a noble project. Children, who often feel incapable of influencing their world yet are reservoirs of innate power are usually enthusiastic about sharing their collective light. As you gather together willing people, your individual intent will become a great and powerful wave, and you will see results in your fellow humans, in the news, and in your daily life.
