It’s All In Your Head: How to Take Advantage of Neuroplasticity

How do you talk to yourself? Do you find fault with most aspects of your life? Do you talk to others like that? Would let anyone talk to you like that? When we stop to listen to what our minds are telling us, it’s shocking to realize how much of it is negative. It may seem overwhelming and leave you feeling powerless over your mind and the direction it wants to lead you. Prior to 20 years ago, we thought the brain was hard-wired and fixed, but we now know that from birth to the end of life, our mind is constantly changing and our thoughts are more powerful than we ever imagined guiding the steps in our lives...

An Homage & Call to Women In The 21st Century

Confession: I am a reformed sexist.For a long time I held the view that on average, women are not as capable as men. This view was based on my experience; it was what I saw around me. So many vapid women with as much substance as the reality TV stars they watched each night. But a relatively recent realization brought this view crashing to the ground: possession of two X chromosomes does not render a person less capable, but our culture does an excellent job of it.Last year I was conversing with a gender issues expert who opened my eyes to the world from a woman's perspective. She explained what is was like to be constantly objectified, to be treated differently because you are a woman, and what is was like to grow up with different expectations and values thanks to cultural conditioning...

How To Bulletproof Yourself from McDonalds & The Fast-Food Temptation

When we look back through history, there are some things our predecessors did that makes no sense at all now. Trying to cure diseases through blood-letting? Hunting for witches? Denying women the right to vote? That stuff was non-sense.In 50 years, I predict that our grand-children will look back at our “Fast Food Era”, and wonder “What the hell were they thinking?!”Let's think about it for a second. We know fast-food is terrible for us, we know it makes us feel like crap, and we know it's the enemy of the rocking body we desire. Yet, fast-food sales are going up each year, and McDonalds achieved record revenues last year.I believe that as a society, we are failing big time...
