Maximizing Your Human Experience
enthuse yourself and enthuse those around you

"If you have zest and enthusiasm you attract zest and enthusiasm. Life does give back in kind."
Norman Vincent Peale

"The great accomplishments of man have resulted from the transmission of ideas of enthusiasm."
~ Thomas J. Watson

Enthusiasm first appeared in English in 1603 with the meaning "possession by a god." The source of the word is the Greek enthousiasmos, which ultimately comes from the adjective entheos, "having the god within". Enthusiasm clearly has every day connotations of being "inspired" or "excited". Enthusiasm is a good feeling! I would be willing to bet that most people if required to do a particular task, would (if they knew that they could) choose to it with enthusiasm.

Read this paragraph and then try the following. Close your eyes, go inside and just pay attention. Think of a task that has neutral connotations. Something you probably should do, but you can't honestly say you are fired up by it. If you are anything like me, that shouldn't be too hard! Now, draw your attention to the quality of enthusiasm, and notice how you would feel having introduced the quality of enthusiasm to this task.

Doesn't that feel better! People like enthusiasm. They like feeling enthusiastic, and they like people to feel enthusiastic around them.

"Enthusiasm glows, radiates, permeates and immediately captures everyone's interest." ~ Paul J. Meyer

Enthusiasm affects and infects communication in all directions. If you are explaining something to someone and they start to get enthusiastic about your ideas, then wow don't you start to feel good! Hey, you probably even decide that you really like that person. Here is a person who understands the important things, just like you!

"Catch on fire with enthusiasm and people will come from miles to watch you burn."
John Wesley

Conversely, your enthusiasm is infectious. People want to be around people who make them feel good. We recognize, at a deep level, that we perform better and appreciate life more fully when we feel enthusiastic (just look back at the origins of the word).

Have an excellent week.

You Have the Power to Succeed
Max Steingart

Truth isn't a matter of your personal viewpoint. Learn to see things as they really are, not as you imagine they are.

Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or who says it. No matter what you believe, it never changes the facts. If they are there, the facts always speak for themselves.

The truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of people. If sixty million people say a foolish thing, it's still a foolish thing.

The sky is no less blue because the blind man does not see it.

25 Ways to Get Back in the Groove

“Your body isn't going to change overnight. Adjusting your expectations will save you a lot of frustration.”

Remember that great fitness routine you were so into just before you started eating all that barbeque this summer and going to all those backyard parties? Well, if the passage of a few festive weeks has weakened your routine, you're not alone. Here are some tips for getting started (again), no matter what kind of fitness activity you participate in:

1. Hire a personal trainer for one hour and discuss short-term and long-term goals. It'll give you a good place to start, it'll give you a plan, and it'll motivate you to get moving again.

2. Sign up for an exercise class that you've never tried before. First, you might surprise yourself and find something you like, and second, exercising with other people is usually more fun than trying to get back into a routine by yourself.

3. Spice up your workout. During your first week back at your fitness facility, don't do the same workout twice. If you exercise three days a week, ride the bike on day one, do weight training on day two, and go for a swim on day three.

4. Avoid burn out (and injury.) Don't try to make up all your missed workouts all at once - work up to a regular regime.

5. Get the most out of your fitness investment. 30%-35% of people who join fitness facilities don't actually go - calculate what that costs and remind yourself of the value of your investment in fitness.

6. Give yourself a realistic pep talk. If you've been off the exercise wagon for the holidays, your body isn't going to change overnight. Adjusting your expectations will save you a lot of frustration.

7. Ignore the scale. Is dropping those extra holiday pounds your exercise incentive? Do yourself a favor and stay off the scale for three weeks to give yourself time to actually lose a pound or two.

8. Enjoy an outdoor workout. At least once a week, go outside to exercise (walking, running, cycling, blading, anything...). The varied terrain will challenge your body in ways that a treadmill (or other indoor machines) can't; the fresh air will feel good in your lungs; and if you live in a cold climate, your body will probably burn extra calories just trying to keep warm.

9. Keep an exercise journal so you can reflect on what you've accomplished and write down your new exercise resolutions (goals).

10. Make one appointment with a registered dietitian so you can get your eating habits back in check.

11. Exercise with a friend - a partner will keep you company and keep you motivated.

12. Start a "family workout" tradition. Make exercising with your mate or family a once-a-week affair. It's a good way to get everyone into exercise, it'll mix up your workouts, and if you've got kids, you may find yourself experimenting with exercise options you never thought of (the playground comes to mind).

13. Target your best time. Find the time of day when exercising feels best for you - it's a key component in making any exercise routine work. If you're not an early morning riser, then don't force yourself into becoming an early morning exerciser.

14. Schedule time to exercise in your date book like you would any other important appointment and give it the priority it deserves.

15. Break it up. If you don't have time in the day for an hour of exercise then break it up into two half-hour sessions. For example, do a half hour of aerobic exercise at lunch and schedule a half-hour after work to do weight training.

16. Focus on what's working now. It's true, there are lots of changes that happen to your body when you work out, but many of them won't happen right away. Look for the changes that you will notice immediately: more energy, a better ability to handle stress, more willpower, and the ability to get a better night's sleep.

17. Get aerobic fitness up to speed. Even if your exercise hiatus was a relatively short one (2 or 3 weeks), you've lost a lot of your cardiovascular fitness ability. But fear not, it'll come back.

18. Stay in your target heart rate zone while you're exercising so you know you're getting an effective workout (try using a heart rate monitor!).

19. Getting back to weight training? Whatever you used to do, cut the amount of weight by a third and the number of reps in half and then build up to your pre-holiday routine over the next three weeks.

20. Take care of your lower back - Without exercise, your lower back strength decreases, so risk of injury should be a concern. Think about good form and posture no matter what activity you're doing, and get some instruction on how to properly stretch after exercise.

21. Try swimming if you have the opportunity - it's a great gentle way to get an excellent cardiovascular workout.

22. Focus on short term goals when you're beginning again - like just getting to your exercise facility, for instance - they'll bolster your spirits big time.

23. If you don't like it, then don't do it! Too many of us suffer through exercise. There is too much to choose from to continue something you dislike, so try anything and everything until you find an activity you enjoy.

24. Eat well. You may be anxious to lose those extra holiday pounds pronto, but good food will give your body the nutrients and energy it needs.

25. Get a physical. Call your doctor and schedule a check-up. (Think - how long has it been since your last one?) Embarking on a New Year's exercise program is a great plan, but making sure your body can handle it is always a good idea.

Don't forget to pound the water. 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.

Inner Sunrise
Brand-New Day

We don’t need to wait until tomorrow to start fresh, today can be a blank slate starting right now.

When today is not going well, it is tempting to focus on tomorrow as a blank slate with all the possibilities that newness provides. It is true that tomorrow will be a brand-new day, but we do not have to wait until tomorrow to start fresh. We can start fresh at any moment, clearing our energy field of any negativity that has accumulated, and call this very moment the beginning of our brand-new day.

There is something about the sunrise and the first few hours of the morning that make us feel cleansed and rejuvenated, ready to move forward enthusiastically. As the day wears on, we lose some of this dynamic energy and the inspiration it provides. This may be why we look forward to tomorrow as providing the possibility of renewal. Many traditions consider the light of the rising sun to be particularly divine in its origins; this is why so many people in the world face east when performing ritual. We too can cultivate that rising sun energy inside ourselves, carrying it with us to light our way through any time of day or night, drawing on its power to awaken and renew our spirits.

One simple way to do this is to carry an image or a photograph of the rising sun with us in our wallet or purse. We can also post this image on our wall at work or at home, or have it as our screensaver on our computer. When we feel the need to start fresh, we can take a moment to gaze at the image, allowing its light to enter into our hearts. As we do this, we might say out loud or quietly to ourselves, I am ready to let go of the past and start anew. We might visualize anything we want to release leaving us as we exhale, and as we inhale, we can take in the fresh energy of the eastern sun, allowing it to light the way to a brand-new day.
