The 3 Most Common Reasons Why People Are Not Successful

Sunday, April 29th, 2007

If you want to live your dreams, not only must you decide what you want, turn your dream into measurable goals, break those goals down into specific action steps, and visualize and affirm your desired outcomes – you must start taking action.

I recommend making the commitment to do something every day in at least three different areas of your life that moves you in the direction of your dreams.

If one of your goals is physical fitness, make a commitment to do some sort of exercise – aerobics, weight training, stretching – four to five times a week for a minimum of twenty minutes.

Study Reveals – You Don’t Have to Be Smart to Be Rich

Friday, April 27th, 2007

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to make a lot of money, according to new research. A nationwide study found that people of below average intelligence were, overall, just about as wealthy as those in similar circumstances but with higher scores on an IQ test.

Furthermore, a number of extremely intelligent people stated they had gotten themselves into financial difficulty.

Keeping First Things First – Moving From Urgency to Importance

Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

Each of us has unique talents and capabilities and an important work to do in life. The tragedy is that our unique contribution is often never made because the important “first things” in our lives are choked out by other urgent things. And so some important works are never started or finished. We suggest that the path to personal leadership follows the stepping stones of vision, mission, balance, roles, goals, perspective, and integrity in the moment of choice. It’s an ecological balancing process. We invite readers to think very carefully through this process. “What my responsibilities in life? Who are the people I care about?” The answers become the basis for thinking through your roles.

Are Brainwaves The Evolutionary Key to Conscious Awareness?

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

One of the discoveries we made at Centerpointe many years ago – one that has resulted in such a powerful program yielding such amazing results – is that creating the alpha, theta, and delta brain wave patterns of deep meditation could be made progressively more powerful by gradually lowering what is called the carrier frequency used to deliver these frequencies to the brain.

What is doubly interesting about this discovery is a parallel explanation of how evolution happens that comes from an ancient Buddhist/Hindu/Taoist perspective, explaining why lowering the carrier frequency in our modern, high-tech method is so powerful.
