Have an excellent
There is a simple and proven way to get along with everyone. Whenever I go into a busy restaurant, I always ask the waiter for his or her name. Then I address them by name while observing sympathetically, “You seem to be working hard today.”
From that moment on, the waiter always gives me special attention. Why? Because I took the time to empathize with his or her situation rather than looking for sympathy for mine.
Have a Choice
Ability to Empower Others
First, take the time to empathize with others. Everyone is carrying a heavy load. Be nice to them and they’ll be nice to you.
Second, delegate everything you can so that you can free up more time to do your most important jobs. Always work on your highest value tasks.
“Exercise can prevent osteoporosis, cut your risk of heart disease, combat diabetes and ease arthritis pain.”
By age 65, nearly half of all Americans lack the brawn needed to lift even a 10-pound weight. But research on the elderly reveals that significant gains in strength and muscle mass are possible in only a few weeks of exercise. In one Tufts University study, a group of frail elderly nursing-home residents, aged 86 to 96, were recruited into a carefully supervised weight lifting program of three sessions a week. Over eight weeks, the participants increased their strength by an average 175 percent and walking speed by 48 percent. A regular program of aerobic exercise and strength training not only allows you to be more active and more mobile, it also reduces the risk of many, if not most, of the diseases associated with old age. Exercise can:
Prevent osteoporosis by building bone mass. Bones can weaken with age, becoming thinner, more porous and prone to fracture. Osteoporosis affects 38 percent of people over age 75, and 57 percent over age 80. Each year, more than 1.5 million elderly Americans take a fall and wind up with painful cracks (most often in the hip). Many never walk again. But like muscle strength, bone strength can be preserved - and osteoporosis prevented - by lifting weights. Bones respond to the stress of exercise by adding hard calcium. At least two-dozen studies show that weight lifters break fewer bones. The younger you are when you start lifting, the denser and tougher your bones will tend to be. But even someone introduced to lifting iron in the golden years can benefit. Several studies on formerly inactive elderly (up to age 70) demonstrate that starting a lifting program can halt bone loss and even result in bone gain.

Cut your risk of heart disease. It's the most common cause of death in America - and one of the most preventable. Regular aerobic exercise conditions the heart and can help keep you from becoming a statistic. Weight lifting also seems to multiply the positive effects of aerobic exercise. In one study at Tufts, beginning walkers who didn't lift weights were compared to beginning walkers who did. Both groups logged the same number of miles, but after 12 weeks of monitoring, the weight lifters showed much greater improvement in strength and heart-protective aerobic capacity.

Combat diabetes. "Among those 65 to 75 years old, 30 percent are estimated to be diabetic, and diabetes can lead to heart disease, cataracts, kidney failure and nerve damage. The most effective way to combat [adult-onset] diabetes is to lose weight," says William Evans, Ph.D., of the department of geriatrics at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. A combined program of strength training and regular aerobic exercise will help you shed those crucial pounds. Exercise also increases the body's sensitivity to insulin. Insulin is the hormone that allows glucose (blood sugar) to get into your cells, and it is the body's inefficient use (or lack of production) of insulin that gives diabetics their woes.

Ease arthritis pain. Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, hits some harder than others, but it attacks nearly everyone over age 65 to some degree. Exercisers, however, take the lightest hits. The American Medical Association affirms that those with osteoarthritis can and should work out. Numerous studies show that those who do strengthening exercises, along with aerobic exercise, can say goodbye to much of their joint pain. And that holds true for those who have rheumatoid arthritis, the second-most common form of the disease. In one study published in the medical journal Arthritis & Rheumatism, elderly men and women afflicted with rheumatoid arthritis were introduced to high-intensity lifting. After 12 weeks, they were asked to describe their levels of joint pain. The lifters reported an impressive 21 percent drop in pain and 38 percent less fatigue.
Your body is made up of 70% water. Drinking plenty of water help fend off the effects of aging as well! What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon 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. Now, start walking.

How do you relate to people in authority? Depending on your character and upbringing, you may react defensively or meekly to those you perceive to hold more power than you do.
Hierarchical power dissolves in the presence of authentic power. Your true personal power has nothing to do with status. It is determined by how attuned you are to all aspects of yourself and to the needs of others.
In any exchange with a person ‘in power,’ focus your attention on meeting your mutual needs and the relationship will be both equitable and fruitful.
"Compassion, caring, teaching, loving, and sharing your gifts, talents, and abilities are the gateways to power."
