How to Get the Healthy Body and Mind You Want 2

Strategy 1: Breathing and Cleansing

As we promised last week, here’s the first of the 12 Strategies we’ve set as a challenge in order to improve our health and general well-being (that means your body, mind, and emotion). Let’s raise yourself to a higher standard and get started now.

The first Strategy deals with your body need to constantly oxygenize and cleanse itself.

 

Breathing

As you already know, our body needs oxygen to fuel the cells and generate energy.

The optimal level of oxygenation of our cells in order to maintain our health and create a vital lifestyle comes through a good nutrition, drinking enough water, exercise properly and avoid stress.

One of the best ways to oxygenate, as dumb as it might sound, is actually to breathe.
And yes, that implies that we –as representatives of the western culture- don’t know how to breathe properly.

Amusingly, there is even a term the Hawaiian culture uses to refer to western people: Haole, which means “without breath”, because of our inefficient way to inhale…

A good, effective breathe would entail breathing through our stomach first and lastly through our chest; taking deep, rhythmical breathes instead of our usual shallow, irregular ones.

 

Cleansing

Our lymphatic system is a set of tissues and organs that deal with the cleansing and nutrition of our body.
Unlike our cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system doesn’t have a pumping method of its own; it relies on body movement –meaning physical exercise- to propel its fluids through our body.

The necessary body cleansing requires stimulation to do and improve its circulation.

There are two basic ways to achieve this:

The Power Breath Exercise

Every day, four times a day, take what it’s called Power Breaths; which are cycles of inhaling and exhaling in a 1-4-2 ratio; for instance, if it takes you 4 seconds (1 time count) to inhale, then you hold your breath 4 times count; that is, 16 seconds; then you exhale 2 times your first count; that is, you take 8 seconds to release all the air in your lungs. Then you repeat this cycle 10 times in a row.
Later in the day, you repeat this operation; and again until you complete the 4 times.

Try this now one or two times before you continue reading, and see the feeling of ease and relief you get instantly.

Opposing Gravity Exercising

Exercise that involves working against gravity does the most for our lymphatic system, resulting in a healthy body, mind, and emotion.
20 or 30 minutes of rebounding, jump rope workouts, and all kinds of plyometric exercise can provide the ideal conditions for cleansing your cells.

This kind of workout has countless benefits, like providing the stimulus for a free-flowing lymphatic drainage system, which helps rid our body of toxins, cancer cells, wastes, trapped protein, bacteria, viruses and other waste the cells need to cast off.

 

Hopefully, this first Strategy will help you start off this process of improving your energy and well-being.

Talk again next week.

Stay strong!

YOU are in control of your time.

Time isn’t the main thing; it’s the only thing.
— Miles Davis

Maximize every minute of every day... time is money so we need to use it wisely, make the most of it and be in control of time so we are able to accomplish the most. Grant explains that even on your lunch break there is an opportunity to increase your sales.

His idea of NESTING is repetitively visiting the same place over and over again until you are familiar with everyone there. Have lunch in places where potential customers congregate. You need to spend time with customers, reach UP!

Go to places where qualified buyers would go. This provides you with the opportunity to go out and be seen.

 

We need to use every moment to sell.
How much time are you wasting?
A way to measure the time we waste on a daily basis is to record every time you find yourself doing something that wasteful; smoke break, coffee break, facebook, doodling, etc.

 

He who makes the most of time accomplishes the most.

YOU are in control of your time.

What’s your take on Sales? Professional or Amateur?

Fotolia_139157580_S.jpg

You wouldn’t believe that most career professionals don’t know very much about selling. To become a great salesperson, you not only need to be committed to the profession but also have dedication and willingness to learn. Not to mention to have a desire to be great.

“Commitments cannot take place without an action to follow”

 

In order to become great--you need to commit.
Committing is devoting oneself completely to something.
A professional devotes themselves all the way to a career in selling.

Grant Cardone defines a professional and an amateur in the following way:

Professional: a person who is engaged in a specified activity as one’s main paid occupation rather than a pastime

Amateur: one who engages in a pursuit, study, science/sport as a pastime rather than a profession OR someone lacking experience and competence in an art/science

 

To move from an amateur to a professional, observe, take notes, look for patterns, study.

Did you know that once you neglect anything, you will start to dislike it?

Grant made a point. Once you are completely committed to your career, you will see results immediately. Become a fanatic he said; someone who’s insatiable about their commitment to getting something done.

You may come across some people who don’t like selling. They may think it is because they’ve been rejected a few times, or because their lazy, or even because they don’t like people...There are always answers for everything. However, the real reason is actually that they don’t know what they're doing! With this lack of understanding--there’s no control, it leads to undesirable results, ending in the dislike of the idea of selling.

All in all, the first step in success is to eliminate any other options available to you and to JUST COMMIT.

Are you one of the many people out there who are not completely satisfied with your physical state? Do you feel you lack the energy to get you through your daily routine? Do you feel the same about your state of mind?

These days, you can easily get your hands to hundreds –if not thousands- of health, weight loss, and appearance improvement products; but even so, in the US alone, two thirds of the population is overweight, millions suffer from diabetes, and half the country is on some kind of prescription drug for health or psychological problems.
But all those problems are not to be fixed by means of technology, science or pharmacology; these are nothing but shortcuts and band-aid solutions… they don’t deal with the real problem.

If you want to make a real and lasting change in your life, you must commit to a healthy mind and body, and learn how to renew and transform the level of physical health, energy, and vitality that you experience every day.


One good way to bring this change into your life is by using 12 Strategies to master your health:

1: optimize breathing and lymphatic cleansing
2: water and live foods
3: essential oils
4: alkalinity
5: aerobic energy
6: boost your nourishment
7: structural alignment and maximum strength
8: direct your mind and heart
9: eliminate or reduce processed fats
10: eliminate or reduce animal flesh
11: eliminate or reduce dairy products
12: eliminate or reduce acid addictions

 

By incorporating these strategies into your daily life, you’re not only improving your health; you’re holding yourself to a higher standard. You are making a commitment to your whole well-being (including body, mind, and emotion).

Daring to face this challenge, not only you will feel better and experience greater energy; you will also find a renewed sense of excitement, joy and endless possibilities for your life.

 

In the following articles, we will cover each of the strategies in detail, giving you also ideas of how to put them into practice.

Until then, stay strong!

Selling, a Way of Life

sales.jpg

By Tiana Vonghachack

The most powerful people in the world all have one thing in common: they know how to sell. To be one of those people, you must learn how to do the exact same thing. Your entire livelihood depends on this ability and it has all your life up to this very moment.

The #1 reason that a business fails is because of its inability to sell products in quantities great enough at prices high enough. It is odd to think, but selling is actually a prerequisite of life. You will find yourself on a day to day basis having to sell, persuade, negotiate, convince and debate. The ability to sell your beliefs, dreams, and ideas is what will open doors for you in the business world and in your personal life. It is ESSENTIAL.

“The best things in life come as a result of something extra that you do”.

Commissions can come in forms of recognition, a raise/promotion, getting votes, getting new friends, and any other positive result of an action you took. Commissions are rewards, and in order to succeed...you need to exceed expectations. Go just a bit further than anyone else, and you will see the fruits of your efforts.

The economy relies on the ability of salespeople. A salesperson can be anyone who is motivated by the ability to produce.

Without them there would be no:

  • Distribution
  • Storage
  • Or advertising!

It’s imperative to your work and personal life to understand the true importance of being able to sell. The sooner this is accepted, the sooner you can make your way to new successes.
