A Passionate Life

"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."— Ralph Waldo Emerson It’s February-a month associated with love and passion. I want to focus this month’s blog on doing what we love. I have worked with clients who are extremely successful, yet are not doing what they love. This seems counterintuitive because most of us believe that if someone is successful that person must love what they do. This is not always the case. Tama Kieves in “This Time I Dance” talks about her own evolution into doing what she loves. She was a very successful lawyer yet found herself lamenting to a friend that she wasn’t sure she LOVED being a lawyer. Her friend asked “If you are this successful doing work you don’t love doing, then what could you do with work you love doing?” I think this is a great question for all of us as we connect the word love with work Click here for the full article.

A Day Of Simple Health

Ten years ago this month I would have never used the word simple to describe my health. My personal health was anything but simple. In fact it was exactly the opposite. My health was complicated, confusing, sad and certainly painful but it was not simple. Then through a series of events I came across some life changing, life saving information that unimaginable to me would lead me to reclaim my health. I spent two years mastering twelve laws of health that made all the difference in reclaiming my health and preventing further disease. I must say they were the two most intense years of my life as I spent countless of hours studying the subject of health and wellness and diligently applying every bit of information I was learning. Today I enjoy simple health. Gone are the days that I did not know what macro nutrients and micro nutrients are or how much protein I should consume or how to balance my hormones naturally. I am no longer at the mercy of conflicting health studies that only increase skepticism. Nor am I sick and desperate making me vulnerable to the pharmaceutical commercials promising relief of one symptom in exchange for an unbelievable twenty other drug induced symptoms. Instead I became a critical health thinker and am completely in charge of my own health care. I make the decisions on what I should do or not do concerning my health and I have never looked back.

Mastering Simple Health

In my journey to reclaiming my health there were many opportunities to become discouraged. I was in the worse shape of my life and there were multiple things wrong with my body. At first I was reading, learning and applying as many things as I could with no specific order. I was drinking more water, exercising, etc. but I did not have a strong health and wellness protocol in place. As I learned one thing after another I continued to make the changes to my life that I thought necessary in order to reclaim my health. Click here for the full article.

Step by Step

Walking is an activity that requires no special equipment. Hopefully, we can participate in the activity throughout our life. It is easily incorporated into other daily activities. It can be performed alone or with others. You can walk with your lover, your child, your parent or your pet. Night or day. Winter, spring, summer or fall. We can hold a conversation during the exercise, or listen to music. It uses both sides of the body in a balanced and rhythmic coordinated way. Walking can help control weight, improve circulation, increase aerobic fitness, as well as facilitating your mood and memory. Click here for the full article.

End of

As we reach the end of 2010, I want to remind readers of the importance of reflection to our growth and success. There is not a better time for reflection then at the end of something and the beginning of another. I know most of you are thinking-“Is she crazy-doesn’t she realize how busy my schedule is?” I certainly do as my schedule is also brimming to the top. However, if we don’t set aside time for reflection we risk moving into 2011 without a solid evaluation of what’s working in our lives and what is not. As a result we could be destined to repeat 2011 in the same manner that we moved through 2010. I find in my busy life that the best time for reflection is the last week of the year as activities seem to have reached their peak by then and I feel like I can take a breath.

Simple Health Food Exchange

Sickness and Disease does not fall out of the sky, land on our heads and into our bodies, but many of the diseases Americans are enduring are called the diseases of affluence. Definition of Affluence: an abundant supply: Our prosperous America is facing a spiral of diseases connected to excess of unhealthy foods and life style choices.

Can Deaf People Drive

Did I peak your curiosity with this question…or get you enraged? I’m amazed at how many times I’ve been asked this question over the years but it’s from people who really just don’t know. So, let me answer by saying that hearing loss does not affect a person’s ability to drive. The next question I usually get is, “But how do they hear when a siren is coming?” I might ask us the same thing? How do we hear a siren coming when we have our stereos cranked up or are jabbering on our cell phones, etc.? Click here for the full article.
