Taking Responsibility

You have to take responsibility for creating your life. You have to decide what you’re willing to give up. You have to decide what you’re willing to do.

So you design your vision. It’s a detailed map for going from where you are today to where you desire to be in the future. You have to look at the exact steps; the details of your goal or your vision.

You don’t have to know every little piece of it along the way. You don’t have to know every detail. But you have to begin to put some of the details together and at least generally know the steps you want to move in the process of going there. One of the things you have to do is be 100% honest with yourself about where you are today and where you want to get to. Read more »

Creating a Compelling Vision

The first of the five core components is creating a compelling vision and plan. Key word here is ‘compelling’. The key is you have to strongly desire that goal, that vision, that thing that you want to attain. You’ve got to passionately want it.

Napoleon Hill, the author of Think and Grow Rich, said “Desire is the starting point of all achievement. Not a hope. Not a wish. But, a keen, pulsating desire which transcends everything”.

Has there been something that you really wanted, whether it was in school, when you first went to work, when you were dating someone? But there was something you really wanted. You had a vision. You worked at it. You did something. Read more »

The 4 Ways Emotions are Created

As you are taking better control of yourself, you need to think about how to manage these emotions. How do you manage these reactions. How do you keep yourself on the eustress track instead of on the distress track?

Medicine and psychology say there are four core ways that emotions are created. Four primary ways that generate all emotions that we have. The first is chemical or hormonal change in the body. The second is damage to the brain itself. The third is your self-talk and the mental images you create in your mind. And the fourth is something happening to your physiology, or the actions you’re taking with your body.

Let’s look at the first one, chemical or hormonal change in the body. Remember, everything you put in your body’s a chemical. Coffee, tea, sugar, water, alcohol, drugs, food—everything you put in you is a chemical and affects you on some level.

Hormonal change. All hormones are fluctuating up and down all the time. They get used up. They get old. They have to be replaced. You get sick. You have a mood swing—many kinds of reasons. Hormones go up and down continuously and it can affect us. Read more »

What are You Taking In

I’ve got a question for you. How long can you go without eating any food before it has any real harmful effects on your body? How long do you think you can go? Most people can go at least a week, maybe longer.

How long can you go without any water? Approximately 24 to 48 hours for most people. If you don’t have some your kidneys will start having problems, your body has to have water because you’re even losing water through the moisture in your breath. So you have to have water at least every few days.

How long can you go without air? If you don’t have fresh oxygen every three, four minutes, your heart and your brain they both begin to deteriorate. They begin to degenerate within minutes; three or four minutes.

So what is the most important thing you consume on a regular basis? Air of course. That simple little exercise, ‘seven down to one count breathing’ that we just did, absolutely helps normalize your body. Bring some balance into your breathing, your bloodstream, your immune system; it helps normalize things a bit. Read more »

If breathing is so good for us, we need to spend a little bit of time with it. I’m going to teach you a brief exercise that works very well. I have taught this to tens of thousands of people, through seminars, during counseling, etc. This is a piece of cake. It’s so easy anybody can do it.

Breathe Your Brainwaves Calmer

Here’s how to use the “Seven Down To One Count Breathing Process”. You can do this any time you want. You can do it driving, taking a shower, sitting on the toilet, laying in bed, having dinner, talking to friends. You can do it anywhere. But if you want to do it the deepest, close your eyes.

Some people say, “Oh I can’t visualize anything.” Yes you can. For instance, if I say ‘red apple’, do you know what a red apple looks like? Certainly you do. I know you have at least some idea what it looks like. You may not see it vividly and distinctly but you know what it looks like; that’s a visualization. Read more »

Brainwaves & Breathing

The word stress is a derivative of a Latin word, “stringere.” Stringere means to bind tightly. And unfortunately that’s what many of us to do ourselves on a regular and ongoing basis. We tie ourselves in knots over things. We bind ourselves up. We get kinks in our necks and tight muscles in our back, and we move too fast and we stretch things out of whack. We bind ourselves up. We tie ourselves in knots.

Back in the 1950’s and 1960’s, two medical researchers, Dr. Thomas Holmes and Dr. Richard Rahe created what was called the Life Change Index, or the Social Readjustment Rating Scale. They spent many years researching stress and the affects on the normal human life, body, illness, adjustment, the way that you are resilient or not resilient.

They looked for many, many, many different ways to be able to test whether you were in a stress response or not. Well when they finally figured out how to do that, what they realized was that stress is a brainwave pattern response. Read more »

Stress & Illness

Let’s talk for a moment about distress. In our world today, psychosomatic and stress related illnesses are huge. Medical research says that somewhere between 50% to 80% of illnesses have a psychosomatic or a stress related component. That sounds a little high to me, but research supports that’s correct.

I’ve dealt with many psychosomatic illnesses over my 30 year career. In many cases, when we change what’s going on inside of the person’s head, the problem and the health issue reduces or goes away.

Included are things like cardiovascular problems, cancers, strokes, sexual dysfunctions, ulcers, colitis, asthma, allergies, hypertension and high blood pressure oftentimes, insomnia can be, frequent colds, and at times headaches are created by this.

The four most common disorders that are prominent in the U.S., in Europe and in Japan, the big industrialized nations, are thought of as afflictions of civilization. These four major illnesses – cardiovascular problems, cancers, arthritis and respiratory diseases fall into this stress related category. Those oftentimes have at least some psychosomatic or stress related component to them. Read more »

Your Emotions Can Physically Harm You

When I was growing up, my father owned a restaurant in Twin Falls, Idaho. He spent most of the time when at the restaurant, being the front man. He did a lot of the schmoozing with customers, helping the staff, and running the day-to-day operations there. His partner was more in the background, more silent.

One evening, while my father was there working at the restaurant, his partner came in through the back door, unbeknownst to my dad. The partner began to just give the cooks a very hard time, and was picking at the waitresses. My father and he had been having these kind of problems for awhile. Because his partner had started drinking way too much, and would show up at the restaurant drunk.

My dad heard this noise coming from back in the kitchen, and couldn’t figure out what was going on. So he went back, and here’s his partner raising havoc; yelling at the cooks, giving the waitresses a hard time. My father got furious. He and his partner had had arguments about this before.

He told his partner, “Get out of here! This is inappropriate.” His partner refused and told him to mind his own business. Dad blew up! Dad grabbed his partner, and bodily threw him out the back of the restaurant. Read more »
