Why Rejection Is A Good Lesson To Experience





Every now and again we all experience some form of rejection. Sometimes it is from our family members, a love relationship, friends, job, sales or just from society in general.

I feel rejection is a good lesson to have because it allows you the opportunity to re-evaluate your values and what you stand for. Will you cave in and give in to other people's opinion of you? Or will you stand firm in your self belief and convictions even as others reject you?

Most people cave in under pressure, and most of the time they walk away thinking they are not good enough and allow the rejections to pull them down.

So it is not surprising that fear of rejection is one of the biggest reasons why people are afraid to go into the sales industry. I think we all over identify with the act of rejection, we take it all too personally.

As predictable as life can be, there are only two ways of looking at things in the world, either in a positive or negative light.

If we see rejection as a bad thing and fear doing what we need to do, then we will never know and will forever be hiding from our highest potentials.

However if rejection is seen as a shaper of our potentials, it can really open up doorways for us in ways we might have never thought before.

Do what you have to, should do, want to as if it is the last day of your life, and you will see rejection in a different light.

Thank You Shamala Tan!

Thinking of Suicide? Start Running. Apparently, running now kills..



Somewhere along the line, being fit and healthy got redefined to exclude endurance work. Long and steady cardio is now the height of boredom, a waste of time, and - worse yet - the antithesis of "gains." No longer do we need to log endless miles to burn off stubborn fat (regardless of whether you enjoy cardio or not) running can kill you. Whatever..

Sorry Skeptics, But Running Is Good for You

A River of Waste: The Hazardous Truth About Factory Farms



A heart-stopping new documentary, A RIVER OF WASTE exposes a huge health and environmental scandal in our modern industrial system of meat and poultry production. Some scientists have gone so far as to call the condemned current factory farm practices as "mini Chernobyls." In the U.S. and elsewhere, the meat and poultry industry is dominated by dangerous uses of arsenic, antibiotics, growth hormones and by the dumping of massive amounts of sewage in fragile waterways and environments. The film documents the vast catastrophic impact on the environment and public health as well as focuses on the individual lives damaged and destroyed.

The TRUTH About Caffeine: Friend or Foe?




I want to tell you one specific thing that caffeine is doing to you, that is actually robbing you of energy, as opposed to giving you energy.

When you drink coffee or even energy drinks, caffeine is the main component. The main drug in there  is a stimulant. What a stimulant does is jazz up your body. It jazzes up your adrenal glands, which are little walnut shaped glands that sit on top of your kidneys. They secrete a lot of your stress hormones, your fight or flight response hormones. One of them being adrenalin.

That is why you feel the initial euphoria. It is really an adrenalin surge. But as you’ve probably witnessed, that adrenaline surge, that feeling of go, go, go, doesn’t last forever. It’s followed by a crash. Therefore you seek out more caffeine afterwards. Therein there’s lies the problem.

Just what is Gerson Therapy?



The Gerson Therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, vegetarian diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements.
With its whole-body approach to healing, the Gerson Therapy naturally reactivates your body’s magnificent ability to heal itself – with no damaging side effects. This a powerful, natural treatment boosts the body’s own immune system to heal cancer, arthritis, heart disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases. Dr. Max Gerson developed the Gerson Therapy in the 1930s, initially as a treatment for his own debilitating migraines, and eventually as a treatment for degenerative diseases such as skin tuberculosis, diabetes and, most famously, cancer.

Dr. Gerson!

EAT MORE CHICKEN! (but first, how it's made)



Writer Melanie Warner, whose new behind-the-scenes-look-at-the-world-of-processed-foods book, Pandora's Lunchbox, spent the past year and a half doing exactly that. In her quest to explore the murky and convoluted world of soybean oil, milk protein concentrates (a key ingredient in processed cheese), and petroleum-based artificial dyes, she spoke to food scientists, uncovered disturbing regulatory loopholes in food law, and learned just how little we know about many of the food products on supermarket shelves.

Yummy! Processed Food..

Dying To Have Known: You'll want to watch this!



Documentary filmmaker Steve Kroschel asks whether the long-suppressed form of cancer treatment known as Gerson Therapy could truly be as effective as some cancer survivors claim in this film that offers a wide array of testimonies from medical specialists, health experts, and patients. More than seventy five years after being proven to cure degenerative disease, Gerson Therapy is still virtually unknown to the masses - but why? In order to seek out an answer to this question, Kroschel travels across both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, across the United States, and through Japan, Holland, and Mexico to speak with a wide variety of scientists, nutritionists, surgeons, and patients who have witnessed the powerful effects of Gerson Therapy firsthand.

What's more important? The Food you eat or the message it conveys?



Yum! Food preservatives.. Eat some today! Oh, watch the video..

IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU




A guy named Shane made this video. It is heart-wrenching and poignant in what it achieves.

Shane’s true love died, and what happened next is heart-breaking and, unfortunately, real.
In Shane’s words: “It has been said that sharing personal stories is one of the most effective ways to change people’s hearts and minds. This is my story and I hope you are inspired to share it with others.”

PS: I'm shocked that so many people can't understand human emotion but seem to know SO MUCH about 'God' & how gays are 'sinners'

Let's clear some things up:  

1. Your sexuality is NOT a choice.

2. The idea of a 'God' was most likely though up by humans at some point in history. (but I still believe)
I am not a homosexual but it is obvious something needs to change, this is the 21st century there shouldn't be laws against love, I fully support your cause & I'm so sorry for the loss of Tom. 

3. I thought marriage was about love..

THE BEAUTIFUL TRUTH ( INTERESTING MOVIE ) "on cancer"




Raised on a wildlife reserve in Alaska, 15-year-old Garrett was interested in the dietary habits of the farm animals. After the tragic death of his mother, Garrett's father decided to home-school his son and assigned a book written by Dr. Max Gerson that proposed a direct link between diet and a cure for cancer.

Fascinated, Garrett embarks in this documentary on a cross-country road trip to investigate The Gerson Therapy. He meets with scientists, doctors and cancer survivors who reveal how it is in the best interest of the multi-billion dollar medical industry to dismiss the notion of alternative and natural cures.

Why We All Don't Get Cancer -- Sloan-Kettering



Interesting video..

Craig B. Thompson, President and CEO of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, discusses new ways to think about cancer and how cancer arises in human beings.


Don't Get Naked! (not that kind of naked..)



Let's look at the facts..

- In its early days, Odwalla was a small company owned by a few individuals that made real, raw food juices. Since its acquisition by Coca Cola in 2001, almost everything has changed.

- Naked juice was sued for knowingly using GMOs in its juice, when it advertised as "all natural" and "Non-GMO."

- Neither of these food drinks use organic produce, which means you're ingesting pesticides.

- Naked juice was found to contain fructooligosaccharides, fibersol-2 and inulin; three synthetic ingredients.

- Both Naked and Odwalla juices are pasteurized, meaning most of the nutrients in them have already been destroyed before they ever reach store shelves.

- Both products feature the words All Natural which means exactly nothing, as they can contain pesticides, artificial ingredients, GMOs and are pasteurized.

- For less than the cost of these over priced faux health drinks you can buy organic produce and make your own organic, GMO-free juice that contains many times more more nutrients.

- Make your own stuff. Eat it. Drink it. Live it. Do you honestly believe these Big Corporations have YOUR best interest in mind?

You Hear What I'm Sayin? 5 ways to listen better..



In our louder and louder world, says sound expert Julian Treasure, "We are losing our listening." In this short, fascinating talk, Treasure shares five ways to re-tune your ears for conscious listening -- to other people and the world around you.

The art of asking



Growing up, people always tell you "these are the kind of people who are crazy, who have no life, who you shouldn't follow" and yet, these people like Amanda are the ones who understand life the most. They are happy, grateful, and insightful people. More people should strive to have these qualities. It's what makes us human.

Does your body language shape who you are?



Pay attention. This may change your life! 

Give More, Receive less.. Really?



Remember, that which we give the world, we also give to ourselves.. I'm really getting better at being Human.

This is a documentary, so grab some organic popcorn, take a sit, and enjoy... You know, I'm thinkin' that if we start doing something about this now, perhaps our grandchildren will have healthy food... 


The leaders of Big Agriculture--Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta--are determined that world's populations remain ignorant about the serious health and environmental risks of genetically modified crops and industrial agriculture. Deep layers of deception and corruption underlie both the science favoring GMOs and the corporations and governments supporting them.

This award-winning documentary, Seeds of Death, (ooo, sounds scary!) exposes the lies about GMOs and pulls back the curtains to witness our planet's future if Big Agriculture's new green revolution becomes our dominant food supply.

“Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.”

“Peace begins with a smile..” 

“When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.”
― Fred Rogers

“You have peace," the old woman said, "when you make it with yourself.”

“Why can't people just sit and read books and be nice to each other?”
― David BaldacciThe Camel Club

“World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.”
― Dalai Lama XIV

Peace isn’t something you ultimately receive when you slow down the pace of your life. Peace is what you’re capable of being and bringing to every encounter and event in the waking moments of your life. Being peaceful is an inner attitude that you can enjoy when you’ve learned to silence your incessant inner dialogue. Being peaceful isn’t dependent on what your surroundings look like. It seldom has anything to do with what the people around you think, say, or do. A noiseless environment isn’t a requirement.
St. Francis’s famous prayer states it better than I can: “Make me an instrument of your peace.” In other words, St. Francis wasn’t asking God to provide him with peace. He was asking for guidance to be more like the peace he trusted was his Source. Being peace is different fromlooking for peace.
This principle isn’t about merely choosing tranquil thoughts when you’re feeling frayed and anxious. I suggest picturing a container deep within yourself out of which all your thoughts flow. Inside of this container, at its very center, imagine a candle flame. You need to make a commitment that this flame in the center of the container holding all your thoughts will never, ever even flicker, although the very worst may go before you. This is your container of peace, and only peaceful thoughts can fuel the burning candle. You don’t need to change your thoughts as much as you need to learn to be an energy of peace lighting the way and attracting serene, harmonious thoughts and beings. In this way, you’ll become a being of peace.
As a being of peace, you make a huge impact on those around you. It’s almost impossible to be totally stressed out in the presence of someone who has opted to be peace. Peace is a higher and faster energy—when you’re being peace, just your presence alone will often nullify the uneasiness and tension in those around you. The secret of this principle is: Be the peace and harmony you desire. You cannot get it from anything or anyone else. 

Remember, Be The Peace!

Wanna know why monkeys are so happy? Bananas!



Here are three banana rules...


Rule No. 1: Never, put your banana in the refrigerator!!!

Rule No. 2: Unless you have a lot of “nanner” eaters in your home buy only a few at a time as they get over ripe quickly.

Rule No. 3: They bake up great in banana nut bread. These can make great gifts at Christmas time.

Now, did you know...


Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS: Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.


Overweight and/or Pressure at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.


Bananas. The next miracle drug?

How to know you're a Wellness Junkie...


When do you go from being someone who is "kinda-into-health" to becoming a full-on wellness warrior? Is it after you take a hard line on soy? Cure a cough with a yoga pose? Sustain a daily gratitude practice? Who knows? And really, (I say this mindfully), who cares? Life is so much better with an abundance of chia seeds, deep breaths, and nontoxic cleaning products!

Here are 20 signs (quite possibly from the Universe!) that you, too, are way into wellness.
 1. You could hypothetically eat all your beauty products. Your kitchen and bathroom contain all the same ingredients. In fact, if it weren’t for the shower, you couldn’t tell them apart
.2. You don't set goals, only intentions.And then you manifest them.
3. You forget, in casual conversation, that not everyone knows what a Vitamix is.It’s soooo much more than "an expensive blender," but you haven't found a succinct way to say that convincingly. 
4. There are no plastic containers in your kitchen—only mason jars.If we can all agree on one thing, it's that BPA is the worst. Besides, how else would you transport your organic juice? Read on..


You know who you are...

Big Pesticide Wins Fight against Bees. Who's next? The Birds.


Not only bees are being killed by nerve poisoning pesticides, but birds are also disappearing. A report by the American Bird Conservancy has produced a devasting report outlining the disaster being wrought by neonicotinoids, neurotoxic pesticides, on birds.

The report suggests that neurotoxic pesticides got a “very ‘soft ride’ through registration”, in spite of early recognition of their risks in the US, Canada, and UK. Even so, their toxicity to birds was underestimated... Please read on.

Rise Up People! Big Corporation is Here!



Corporations write our legislation. They control our systems of information. They manage the political theater of electoral politics and impose our educational curriculum. They have turned the judiciary into one of their wholly owned subsidiaries. They have decimated labor unions and other independent mass organizations, as well as having bought off the Democratic Party, which once defended the rights of workers. With the evisceration of piecemeal and incremental reform—the primary role of liberal, democratic institutions—we are left defenseless against corporate power. What's next? Us! Read on folks...

10 Amazing Facts About The Sun. Sunscreen Ain't one of them.



Marco here. Sunburn? Whatever. As it turns out, there's another side to the story. Sun exposure isn't all bad. In fact, it's mostly good. That's right: Sun exposure is good for you. After decades of avoiding it, researchers are finding that we may have been doing more harm than good. It's a shock to the system, for sure, but the evidence is substantial. A chronic lack of sun exposure has been linked to fertility problems, several forms of cancer, general poor health and varying degrees of depression. People actually get depressed, with symptoms like sadness, fatigue and hopelessness -- from a lack of sunlight.
The form of depression most often associated with variations in sunlight is seasonal affective disorder(SAD). The disorder runs in cycles of depression and wellness that follow the seasons -- more specifically, the availability of sunlight. Someone with SAD might feel perfectly fine in spring and summer, and then experience a severe downturn in mood when fall hits. They'll stay that way through the winter, until the sun comes out again in full force. SAD is particularly prevalent in parts of the world with little winter daylight and/or extended overcast periods, like Alaska or the U.S. Northwest. In this article, we'll find out why sunlight exposure can affect your emotional well-being and how you can safely use the sun to benefit your mood.
As it turns out, humans aren't quite as removed from their natural instincts as some believe.

Dr. Mercola: Visionary or Quackeroo?


He may not have the mainstream name recognition or rock-star appeal of, say, Mehmet Oz (though he has twice been a guest on The Dr. Oz Show). But Mercola’s influence is nonetheless considerable. Each month, nearly two million people click to see the osteopathic physician’s latest musings on the wonders of dietary supplements and minerals (“The 13 Amazing Health Benefits of Himalayan Crystal Salt”), the marvels of alternative therapies (“Learn How Homeopathy Cured a Boy of Autism”), and his take on medical research, from vaccines (“Your Flu Shot Contains a Dangerous Neurotoxin”) to vitamin D (“The Silver Bullet for Cancer?”).Visitors to his site are also treated to heavy doses of the contempt Mercola holds for most things traditional medicine and Big Pharma—the “medical-industrial complex,” he calls it. Many followers are almost evangelical in their support of his message. “If only the world had more Dr. Mercolas!” wrote one in the comments section for “The Thugs of the Medical World,” a Mercola.com article about drug companies. “You are a warrior sir, and your tireless, truthful, and fearless efforts to expose these criminals is much appreciated.” Not surprisingly, the medical establishment sees things differently. Some researchers and doctors say that Mercola steers patients away from proven treatments and peddles pseudoscientific misinformation on topics such as flu shots and fluoridation. In their view, he is resurrecting old myths, such as the threat posed by mercury in dental fillings, and promoting new ones, such as the notion that microwave ovens emit harmful radiation. “The information he’s putting out to the public is extremely misleading and potentially very dangerous,” opines Dr. Stephen Barrett, who runs the medical watchdog site Quackwatch.org. “He exaggerates the risks and potential dangers of legitimate science-based medical care, and he promotes a lot of unsubstantiated ideas and sells [certain] products with claims that are misleading.” Read on... you decide. Personally, I believe the man is pissing people off that don't want the truth to be known!

Visionary or Quack?

Wanna Make Your Own Protein Bar? Try This!


But first! Here's 5 reasons regular protein bars suck! 
PS: Thanks Shane for the recipe


1. Eating too many will “suck” the sexiness right out of you, thanks to being loaded with sugar
2. They are addictive because they rarely have healthy fats or enough protein to keep you feeling full
3. They force you to snack, therefore spiking your fat storing hormone insulin, between meals
4. They don’t make you better at sports
5. Nothing natural about them


Nutrition facts
This recipe will make 24 bars. ONE bar is a serving. Not FIVE!
Calories: 323
Fat: 23
Protein: 14
Carbohydrates: 17
Sugar 6 (from dark chocolate, blueberries and bananas):


Recipe
2 mashed bananas
3 cups instant oats
4 tbs ground flax seed
6-8 scoops Life Time, Life's Basics Plant Protein Powder, with Greens
½ cup almond butter
½ cup coconut oil (melted)
½ cup water
4 tbs dark chocolate chunks
½ cup dried blueberries

Instructions:
Mix everything together except the chocolate chunks. This will work best if you add and mix one ingredient at a time. It’s very sticky. Line a 9 x 13 pan with foil or wax paper. I like the wax paper best. Add mixed ingredients to the pan, spread. Melt the chocolate chunks in a pan and add a little water as you go so it stays creamy and doesn’t harden. Spread the chocolate over the spread and freeze for at least 2 hours. Thaw for 5 minutes, cut into bars. Enjoy.

Benefits of the Body Bar

Increase strength, stamina and endurance
Shorten recovery times
Boost good calories for muscle building without spiking insulin
Will keep you full after meal time so you don't have to snack


WARNING
These are not to be eaten as a snack or a meal replacement. They are designed to be added to a meal, for individuals who are already at their OPTIMAL body fat percentage. These are perfect for the athlete, picky child, or to eat with a “light” meal on the go. And if you want to serve a healthy dessert, this is perfect!
