I Know You Thought I Died

Never know what happens to my time, so I’ll try Not to make excuses, but promise to do better!  I have been writing since high school days when I took my first Journalism Class.  Life has taken a lot of twists under my pen.  I work from home, loving every minute of my day.

I teach about my business, help others begin their business because I am a Coach.  I represent a huge company that has been in business for over 38 years, I’ve been with them for over 25 years.  The company is in 94 countries and we work from home and teach others. moms, single or married, Entrepreneurs and Second career people also love our “no pressure” approach.

My life is not perfect but it is where I want to be, home.


Dive In or Hesitate?

In this post, I am talking about taking action on a chance to change my life.

So what exactly does it mean, “in the right place at the right time”? It sounds so cliche’. We listen or watch a video and get that feeling that I am here for a reason. That feeling that I should take action in some way.

I am not an impulsive person, but i have learned if I do Not take action right away, the feeling subsides and that one opportunity, that door may close before I can take advantage. I have learned to do a better job at listening and evaluating quicker.

Some of my family & friends say I think with my heart.

Leave me a comment and share how you make decisions or the “urging of your heart”

Get A Grip On Time

by Kay Wilson (KoachKay)

Ever have a busy day, when you collapse on the couch after dinner and think, “What did I do today? What did I accomplish?”

If you work an 8 hour day. Were they completely productive hours, focused on projects or activity to really grow your business?

My friend and mentor, Jay C, advised me to work in blocks of time. Choose 6 things on your daily “To Do List”. (You made that list last night, right?) He said, “each block should be 30 minutes”. So 6 projects accomplished in 3 hours. Easy to fit that in your day. Remember Fun, Simple, & Magical, of course, you have other personal or family stuff to do. Put your personal stuff on your calendar too, we hear how important to 1st have a calendar, I use Google calendar, it alerts me of each “to do thing” or appointment I have.

At the end of your day, you will feel so satisfied, that you managed your time better, instead of jumping from incident to another. Easy to work for 30 minute blocks and get more done.

No more looking at the end of your day and asking, what did I do all day?” You can look at your calendar & see the check marks by each task. So, if your business is not moving fast enough, this is a good tracking record of exactly what you did. Your coach or mentor can look over it with you to help you see “where your time went”.

One of Jim Rohn’s quotes, “Time is more valuable than money, you can make more money, but you can’t get more time.”

I want more than anything for you to use your time to do amazing and meaningful things. I want you to get your business rocking! I want you to spend more time with your family, stay home with your kids or maybe plan a fun trip soon.

It is important to look into the mirror, reflect on your day, feel satisfied? What are we really doing that we need to stop doing, checking emails or other busy work that does Not make us money?

Then resolve tomorrow to do better with focus on those blocks of time. Three hours, You can do this!

The One Man That Infuenced My Life More Than Any Other, Jim Rohn

I have his books, his DVD’s, his CDs and when I am at the gym or on a walk, his words are pouring his wisdom into my ears. His voice has given me knowledge, encouragement and strength
though 20 years of my association with him and enabled me to have my own business as a Herbalife Independent Distributor. His legacy lives on in each of us. We share and teach his philosophy to our family, our friends and associate distributors. No matter where you are in Your life, you’ll benefit by your association with Jim. I have info for a website if you would like to order any of his materials or trainings at the end of this post.

Evaluating Your Associations by Jim Rohn
If you were to evaluate the major influences in your life that have shaped the kind of person you are, this has to be high on the list: the people and thoughts you choose to allow into your life. Mr. Shoaff gave me a very important warning in those early days that I would like to share with you. He said, “Never underestimate the power of influence.” Indeed, the influence of those around us is so powerful! Many times we don’t even realize we’re being strongly affected because influences generally develop over an extended period of time.

Peer pressure is an especially powerful force because it is so subtle. If you’re around people who spend all they make, chances are excellent that you’ll spend all you make. If you are around people who go to more ball games than concerts, chances are excellent that you’ll do the same thing. If you are around people who don’t read, chances are excellent that you won’t read. People can keep nudging us off course a little at a time until finally, we find ourselves asking, “How did I get here?” Those subtle influences need to be studied carefully if we really want our lives to turn out the way we’ve planned.

With regard to this important point, let me give you three key questions to ask yourself. They may help you to make better analyses of your current associations.

Here is the first question: “Who am I around?” Make a mental note of the people with whom you most often associate. You’ve got to evaluate everybody who is able to influence you in any way.

The second question is: “What are these associations doing to me?” That’s a major question to ask. What have they got me doing? What have they got me listening to? What have they got me reading? Where have they got me going? What do they have me thinking? How have they got me talking? How have they got me feeling? What have they got me saying? You’ve got to make a serious study of how others are influencing you, both negatively and positively.

Here’s a final question: “Is that okay?” Maybe everyone you associate with has been a positive, energizing influence. Then again, maybe there are some bad apples in the bunch. All I’m suggesting here is that you take a close and objective look. Everything is worth a second look, especially the power of influence. Both will take you somewhere, but only one will take you in the direction you need to go.

It’s easy to just dismiss the things that influence our lives. One man says, “I live here, but I don’t think it matters. I’m around these people, but I don’t think it hurts.” I would take another look at that. Remember, everything matters! Sure, some things matter more than others, but everything amounts to something. You’ve got to keep checking to find out whether your associations are tipping the scales toward the positive or toward the negative. Ignorance is never the best policy. Finding out is the best policy.

Perhaps you’ve heard the story of the little bird. He had his wing over his eye and he was crying. The owl said to the bird, “You are crying.” “Yes,” said the little bird, and he pulled his wing away from his eye. “Oh, I see,” said the owl. “You’re crying because the big bird pecked out your eye.” And the little bird said, “No, I’m not crying because the big bird pecked out my eye. I’m crying because I let him.”

It’s easy to let influence shape our lives, to let associations determine our direction, to let pressures overwhelm us, and to let tides take us. The big question is, are we letting ourselves become what we wish to become?

The Package says “Medium” – But the Calories Say “Large”

The Package says “Medium” – But the Calories Say “Large”
The Package says “Medium” – But the Calories Say “Large”
By susanb, November 3, 2011

I rarely eat when I go to the movies, but when we went last weekend, my husband was in the mood for some popcorn. 
We ordered a bag to share – choosing a “medium” size for no other reason than a “small” size sounded…well, “small”… 
and “large” sounded more like “family size”. So when we were handed this enormous bag of popcorn – 
enough for about six people – it got me to thinking. If the folks running the movie theater are deciding 
what’s a “small” or “medium” or “large” serving of popcorn, do we blindly accept those labels? 
Do we tell ourselves that “medium” means “moderate”? Do we go ahead and eat half of that “medium” bag of 
popcorn – even though it’s clearly a large amount of food?

It turns out that in many cases, that’s exactly what people do. In a paper published earlier this year in the Journal 
of Consumer Research1, it was noted that most people have a hard time estimating the volume of a 
particular food simply by looking at it – or even how full they are after eating it. 
So it’s a lot easier to rely on someone else’s judgment – in this case, the size of a 
“medium” bag of popcorn – to tell them what’s an appropriate amount to eat. 
This “size label effect” can lead to what the authors called “guiltless gluttony”, where 
we mindlessly eat large amounts of food – because the label has us believing that we’re 
eating a lot less than we really are.

This is a real problem, though. Because when it comes to eating, many of us have an internal 
tug-of-war going on. We want to believe we’re eating less, because that shows that we care about 
our health and our weight. But at he same time, we also want to eat a lot – for the simple 
reason that eating is fun and pleasurable. That’s why this crafty labeling helps us resolve this conflict.

Interestingly, there aren’t any standards for what’s labeled “small” or “medium” or “large” – 
it’s entirely up to the vendor. What was originally the “regular” size fries at one fast food 
chain is now the “kids” size, and what used to be the “supersize” portion is now a “large”. 
And drink sizes can vary a lot from place to place – and from beverage to beverage. 
Depending on where you get your coffee, a “small” could range anywhere from 8-12 ounces and 
a large could be 16 ounces or even 24. A 32-ounce soda is a “large” drink at one fast food chain, 
but it’s a “medium” at another (where a large is 40 ounces – and another 80 calories). 

There’s a similar thing going on with women’s clothing. In the US, clothing sizes aren’t standardized, 
so we run up against something called “vanity sizing”. Many garments are labeled smaller than 
they actually are, which leads women to believe their bodies are smaller than they actually are, too.

So what’s in a name? Not much, it seems. Portion size matters, of course – but we can’t rely 
only a “size” label to actually tell us how big that portion really is. And we’ll never get anywhere 
as long as we’ve got size labels on foods that have us convinced we’re not overeating – 
and vanity sizing on clothing that just hammers the point home.

Eating Your Veggies Gives You Antioxidants

Dr. David Heber,M.D., Ph.D., Director, UCLA Center for Human Nutrition wrote that we should be eating 7-9 servings of veggie/fruit in his book “What Color is Your Diet?” Why colorful? Each color is for a specific organ. 

Vegetables, like salad greens, broccoli, green beans, asparagus and zucchini, are low in calories but high in volume. Each vegetable serving is about 25 calories, and 
typical serving sizes are 1 cup raw, a half-cup cooked or 2 cups leafy vegetables. Interesting because you can eat 7 servings and still only be 200 calories, without sauce and butter, of course.

Starchy vegetables, such as corn, potatoes, sweet potatoes and winter squash contain more calories, about 70 calories in a half-cup serving.

Guarding Against Glaucoma by Dr. Tony Vendryes

November 1, 2011

THE LOSS of one of the special senses, especially eyesight, can be very traumatic. The eye disease glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness. The condition involves an elevated intra-ocular pressure (IOP) in the eye because of reduced outflow of the clear fluid found in the front of the eye called aqueous humor.
Ninety per cent of all cases of glaucoma are called primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). POAG can usually be controlled with treatment over the patients’ lifetime. If glaucoma is diagnosed early and treated, vision is usually not permanently impaired.

In North America, one in 30 people over age 40, has glaucoma and one-half of them are not aware that they have the disease. The National Eye Institute estimates that diabetics are almost twice as likely to have glaucoma as non-diabetics. The more long-standing the diabetes, the greater the risk of glaucoma.
High blood pressure and a family history of glaucoma increase an individual’s risk. Glaucoma is four to five times more common among Black Americans compared to White Americans. The problem is very common in Jamaica. The risk of glaucoma appears greater in individuals who suffer severe farsightedness or nearsightedness.
The Physicians’ Desk Reference lists 94 medications that can cause glaucoma, including antihypertensives, antidepressants, antihistamines and steroids, such as prednisone.
Glaucoma is a serious eye condition requiring diagnosis, treatment and monitoring by a qualified ophthalmologist. Results might be additionally improved by also working with a physician who combines the best of orthodox and complementary wisdom.
Current glaucoma treatment focuses on medication and surgery to reduce IOP, but providing protection to the delicate nerve cells of the retinal is critical in preventing progressive loss of vision. Some of the following lifestyle suggestions should be considered as part of an anti-glaucoma programme.

Medical evidence suggests that regular exercise can reduce eye pressure on its own while having a positive effect on other glaucoma risk factors like diabetes and high blood pressure.
In one study, a group of people with glaucoma rode stationary bikes four times per week for 40 minutes for three months and reduced their IOPs an average of 20 per cent These beneficial effects were maintained by continuing to exercise at least three times per week, and lowered IOP was lost if exercise was stopped for more than two weeks.

A diet rich in antioxidants benefits eye health generally. The diet for the glaucoma sufferer should emphasise vitamin-C-rich foods like fresh fruits and vegetables. Foods high in Vitamin A, and Vitamin E also help protect the eyes and are an essential part of a diet for glaucoma patients. In addition to fruits and vegetables, it is important for such people to consume whole grains, nuts and seeds on a regular basis.
Foods that are high in carotenoids are essential for good eye health. These include fruits like oranges, leafy green veggies and yellow vegetables such as peppers. Include foods rich in magnesium and chromium like apples, brewer’s yeast, kelp and leafy green veggies.
Foods that contain the bioflavonoid anthocyanidin should be consumed on a regular basis, as it helps to prevent free-radicals damage and keeps the collagen around the eye flexible and healthy. Foods that contain high amounts of this bioflavonoid are cherries, grapes and berries like blueberries.
Green tea: Studies indicate that the regular consumption of green tea can help protect the eyes from further glaucoma damage, because the tissues of the eye – the retina and the aqueous humor absorb the antioxidants from the green tea.

Additional vitamin C may assist in lowering IOP and establishing healthy collagen. Some individuals benefit from as little as two grams of vitamin C daily, while others will need much more. It should be taken in doses spaced throughout the day to allow a continuous supply of ascorbate.
Vitamin B12 is a vitamin with a specific ability to protect delicate nerve cells such as those in the eye. Vitamin B12 supplementation at higher than usual dosages is considered therapeutic protection against such neurological damage. It can be taken as sublingual methylcobalamine tablets as an alternative to weekly B12 injections.

A fat found in fish oil called docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) may help protect and promote healthy retinal function. DHA is concentrated in the eye’s retina and has been found to be particularly useful in optimising vision.
Alpha-lipoic acid, another antioxidant has attracted attention in the treatment of glaucoma, as it appears to improve intra-ocular pressure and visual function. Glaucoma research suggests a daily dose of 150 mg.
Pycnogenol is a supplement rich in proanthocyanidins that increases the effectiveness of vitamin C and together they support healthy collagen and defend against free-radicals damage. Two hundred to 300mg daily is recommended for glaucoma.
Bilberry is often referred to as the ‘eye herb’ because of its anthocyanosides content. It works in a similar way to pycnogenol at doses of 200mg times daily.

Brite Eyes is a topically applied eye drop that contains the antioxidant N-acetyl-L-carnosine. Research shows it protects the eye against free radicals and helps prevent damage to eye tissues and the formation of cataracts. Further research has indicated its usefulness in lowering IOP. One to two drops per day in each eye is useful for glaucoma and cataract sufferers as well as for general eye health.

Research on the effects of relaxation exercise and biofeedback sessions on IOP has shown promise in controlling some cases of POAG. Findings suggest that the reduced blood pressure, heart rate and muscle tension achieved with relaxation and biofeedback may be responsible for the improvements. Yoga may be particularly helpful.
It is important to minimise emotional stress and cultivate a relaxed and restful lifestyle, as glaucoma is aggravated by stress. Avoid excessive watching of television and prolonged computer time without a break, as such habits can lead to prolonged strain on the eyes.
