Guided Breath Meditation for Stress Management

Meditation for Stress Management

 

5 Minute Stress-Management Meditation

The paradox about stress and stress-management is: The more you feel under pressure the less likely that you feel like taking out an hour of your day for self-care (even though you know you should).

Not only are we endangering our mental and physical health and put ourselves at the risk of burnout – our productivity is decreasing drastically when we are stressed.

Just think about it: How much can you achieve in one hour of work at “full speed” and how often do you work long hours under pressure and don’t produce impressive results?I get it. When you have to meet deadlines or juggle a ton of responsibilities, you might not be open to learning/practicing mindfulness or meditation.

Did you know that you can reduce your stress level in just five minutes?

Meditation is one of the most effective tools for managing stress. Many of us believe that meditation comes with a lot of rules.

The right form of meditation, the right place, the right length, that candle…Buddhism refers to “dukkha” (pain, suffering, unsatisfactoriness) as stress and identifies attachment (“acquisition”) as the source of all suffering. Forget everything you have ever heard about “rules” in meditation.

For some people, their idea of meditation creates more stress and that is certainly not the intended use of this brain-changing self-care “tool”. Meditation should be without attachment.

Yes, you can achieve more for yourself if you decide to take out 20 minutes or an hour of your day. But you don’t have to. If I had to define a single rule it would be: Do as much as you can of what is good for you.

Taking a small break for a 5-minute meditation will do you good too.

Positive vs. negative Motivation

Positive vs negative Motivation

Why positive motivation is better for your brain


I just scrolled through my LinkedIn news feed and noticed plenty of negative quotes. You find them on all social networking sites. 

Motivation is the sum of motives for our readiness to act which means our pursuit of goals or targets based on emotional and neuronal activity. 

Today we will not look at the topic in its complexity, but just pick out one factor constantly in front of our eyes. We will neither look at sources for motivation nor different models.

"Negative motivation" can be defined as something we do out of fear or to avoid certain consequences, but we will further simplify today and use the term for:

Negative motivation on social media


What's the problem with that?

You can hate to lose or love to win.

The word "hate" is a strong word that triggers reactions in your brain. Feeling hatred towards someone, especially in a professional environment, is rare. 

I think most of the time people who post quotes about jealousy, haters and such are not aware what they are doing to their brains. 

Our small minds cannot process everything around us. Our brain pick which parts of the infinite plethora of things around us it will show us. Our brain ignores negations.

We might not even be serious when we post about "the sum of our haters" - but tell that to our brain. 

Does that mean that negative motivation should never be used? 

When to use negative motivation


Negative motivation can be helpful if you are dealing with a disaster. If something happens that is so painful that we don't know how to move on, negative motivation can be a good short-term solution.

It is helpful to avoid and damage and deal with disaster. To that extent, and that extent only, it is a fabulous tool to help us survive disaster. 

It does not serve us long-term, though. It will not be long before it feasts on its host. Negativity is exhausting. The satisfaction of proving someone wrong does not last long. Doing something "because they said I can't" will not be strong enough to keep you going for a long time. 

We give people that hurt us and situations that were painful power if we substitute our higher goal with negative motivation and keep reminding ourselves on all the negatives.

To sum things up


Both forms of affirmations, negative and positive, can give you power for that moment. Positive motivation is side-effect free. Negative motivation is an energy thief because part of your attention shifts to all the negative things and people around you.

You will see more of that and a shift in your expectation will lead to you getting more of that. The same is true for positive words like "love" "support" "help".

Instead of "Punishing your haters with your success" you could "reward yourself". The strongest goal is a positive, higher goal.

Let's not give negative people too much credit by giving them an importance they do not have. Focus on yourself!


YOU are worth it!

Winning the Game of Money 2017 Review

Is Brain-A-Thon 2017 worth your time?

For those of you who do not know John Assaraf's "Winning the Game of Money" and the complimentary annual "Brain-A-Thon": At the end of this posts are links to articles that share details about the training and former Brain-A-Thons.You have every right to be a skeptic (just like me) when you read about the next "free" event. Time is the most precious good we have so that nothing is free. Ever. I have to correct myself. Sadly, most of these events are free. Free of value but full of sales pitches and shallow information.
"Must attend"-event is an expression I have never used and I also dislike it. Given how loud our world has become, it is hard to convey when you come across something that has unique value and stands out from all the empty screams surrounding us.
This is hands-on the best free source available in brain training. I'd be more than willing to pay for it for that matter - but it is free.
New content, new speakers, "old" proven speakers - 5 leading industry experts share pearls of knowledge in this 2-hour event.
Here is what you will learn:
  • "You’ll discover how to eliminate the limiting beliefs that are keeping you stuck at a certain income level
  • You’ll learn how to reprogram your brain so you can work towards adding an extra ‘0’ to your monthly income
  • You’ll be able to rewrite your money story so you can break through to that next level of wealth and abundance
  • You’ll learn how to shift from a “middle-class mindset” to the “mindset of the rich”
  • You’ll learn how to get rid of the mental and emotional blocks that prevent you from earning what you deserve"
I suggest you reserve your spot right now. Discover how you can get rid of the mental and emotional blocks holding you back from earning what you deserve.
You can decide how you want to live your life and how much you want to earn. Making the right choices is not always easy. Joan Baez said:
"You don't get to chose how you're going to die. Or when. You can only decide how you're going to live. Now."
Life is too short to worry about paying bills or if you can support the non-profit and afford that doctor.
The Brain-A-Thon is a refresher if you're already "there" and the first step to breaking your financial barriers if you're not. Reserve your seat HERE.
I'd love to hear what you thought about the event!!!
PS: For those who want to try the program, NeuroGym now offers a 1$ trial. Get it HERE

8 Hacks For More Confidence

8 Simple Hacks For More Confidence
Confidence is self-trust. How far we trust ourselves decides about our results.A former trainer of mine, Lester Karrass, famously said:
"In business and in life - you don't get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate."
The less faith you have in yourself, the weaker will you negotiate. You will settle for little. We ask for what we feel we are worth.People who lack confidence will neither ask nor get much from life.I put together for your 8 simple tips that allow you to increase your confidence and start re-negotiating with life.I will admit that the "simple tips" are a comprehensive collection of self-growth exercises. "Comprehensive collections of sometimes difficult exercises that require persistence and effort" was just too long for the headline (;Perhaps I even smuggled 2 tips in 1.Then again ... flashy one-liners rarely take you places. My guide has the potential to do something for you - if you allow it.I have made a video version for you as well, in case you prefer that.

8 tips for more confidence, self-esteem & feeling of self-worth

 

1. I can afford to make mistakes (self-acceptance)

 
"I am good the way I am, even though I am not perfect."
Self-acceptance means to embrace yourself with all of your mistakes. The price question is: How can you implement a mindset of self-acceptance into everyday life?I have an effective exercise for you, but it will take practice.Think of something about yourself you strongly dislike and that bugs you regularly. It could be
  • outwardness (a big nose, too much weight ...)
  • features such as shyness, slow learning, huffishness
  • other things like being unemployed, childless, lonely or poorly educated
You can use everything you dislike about yourself. And here comes the trick: Please say:
"Even though I .................... I am ok and right and worth the good things in life."
With "good things" I mean for instance: love, respect, abundance, recognition. The sentence reflects a fundamental fact of life that should be internalized to increase your feeling of self-worth - and achieve the results you want.If only perfect people deserved the good things, nobody would deserve them. Because nobody is perfect. You're not. I'm not. The person you look up to the most is not. Richard Branson is not. Not even the Dalai Lama.An example of a self-acceptance mantra:
  • Even though I am shy and have trouble approaching people, I am ok as a person and right. I deserve the good things in life and I am worth them.
You can reword it. Your own words are the strongest. Just do not weaken the message.
Even if you would stop reading right now: Just by practicing this little exercise you already take huge steps forward.

2. I can grow (confidence)

Confidence is faith in yourself. It's the belief you can master hurdles, challenges and whatever else life throws your way.It's the belief that persistence, hustle and the right way of thinking enables you to achieve anything you set your mind to.
Confident people have faith in their abilities and their power to master familiar and unfamiliar situations.
They trust they can handle challenges that are in line with their current skill-set and also those that require skills they currently don't possess.
Maybe you want to take on a job that comes with a lot of responsibilities. Or you want to end a relationship, change jobs and you trust you have or can develop the skills needed to go through a hard time, painful break-up and such.
To have confidence means to have faith in your ability to grow as a person. That you can learn what you need as you go along. And that you may make mistakes, yes, even that it's an important part of the journey and source for learning.
Naturally, there are limits. I, for instance, could not become the youngest person landing on the moon.
But because I allow myself to learn and fail and grow, I have faith that I can achieve a lot of things.
Even things I never did before.
If you want to develop confidence, the best way is to grow. Prove to yourself that you can learn. This is also the learning goal of "Project Confidence".
You could learn a new language or skill. But the best is to learn things related to your desires, goals, and needs.
Learn business skills if you want to start your own company. Learn communication skills and increase your EQ if you want to meet a new partner.
Showcase that you can grow. Your confidence will grow with you.

3. I know myself (self-awareness)

"I know who I am and where I stand."
Self-awareness helps to stay calm and relaxed in a difficult situation. Self-aware people can act sovereign.They handle negative feedback in a constructive manner. Also, they act more than they react.When they consider something important they will make it a subject of discussion.Why can they do it? Because they know:
  • Who they are (self-understanding)
  • What is important to them and
  • They know their boundaries and if they consider behavior acceptable or encroaching
This knowledge leads to internal stability. If you have clarity, you are rock solid and can't be thrown off-track easily.
  1. Find out who you are
  2. Find out what is important to you and where you are willing/unwilling to compromise
  3. Define your boundaries. Decide what you will allow people in the future - and what not
You might find that these questions are difficult to answer. They are worth spending the time to look at them in-depths.
That leads to sovereignty.

4. I am real (authenticity)

"I am how I am and that is how I am."
The better we can accept and embrace who we are the more authentic we become. In combination with confidence and self-esteem, it allows us to show more and more often who and how we are.Without being ashamed of ourselves and that we are how we are. It becomes easier to say: "What you think about me is your problem and not mine."Authenticity directly results from self-acceptance. It works the other way around too. If I dare to show how I am, my self-acceptance will increase.If this concept is frightening you, you can start out small. Start by showing the real you to a selective group of people you trust. Own your fear, weakness, mistakes, and things you wished were different. Talk about your feeling of shame and display your vulnerability.You quickly see that you feel a new dimension of connection with your counterparts. Showing vulnerability creates a connection that could not be deeper. But careful: Start with people you trust.The more often you practice authenticity, the more you will learn to accept yourself.Another trick: Write a list of all the things you feel ashamed of. Put the demons on a piece of paper. That has a cleansing effect by itself.Then sort the list from "less terrible" to "most terrible". Practice moving more and more items to the "less terrible" section. Admit how you are and accept it more and more.In conversations, you will notice that many people deal with the same issues you do. Commonality creates connection and has a healing effect.I will not lie to you. That takes guts and not everyone will appreciate you. But you will earn respect from the people that matter and learn to accept yourself which will lead to more power and happiness.

5. I accept my needs and am kind to myself (kindness, need-awareness)

 
"I deserve the good things in life."
We all have needs.
  • The need for physical and emotional security
  • The need for abundance and well-being
  • The need for love, togetherness, and connection
  • The need for freedom (of choices) and autonomy
  • The need for success
Our needs are individual. For some people, freedom is of uttermost importance while others strongly need to socialize.
We are all different. But then again, not that different.
Having needs is not a problem. It only becomes a problem if we believe that we don't deserve the good things.
Many people have a hard time standing up for their desires, interests, and needs. They think they are not good enough, not worthy of them.
 
Here is the good news and difficult message: Only one person can give you permission to grab the good things. And this person is you. 
I could tell you: "Hey, you're a wonderful person and you have my permission to pursue your goals and fulfill your desires."
But my permission is meaningless. The permission of your parents, partner, your boss is meaningless.
You and only you can give yourself permission. Because you also have to believe you're worth it.
Changing your feeling of self-worth will not happen overnight. It's a journey of many small steps, missteps, and steps back. But sometime you will arrive.  The journey is rewarding like no other - you will reap the fruits of your work for the rest of your life.
The first step could be to listen to your needs.
  • What do I need at this moment?
  • Do I give myself permission to fulfill the need?
Try to reply more and more often "YES". Give yourself permission to go after the good things in life. More and more.
That goes hand in hand with:

Self-care

"I treat myself like a good friend."
There is one more thing that helps us to increase our feeling of self-worth and genuinely accept us: kindness towards ourselves and self-care. It means nothing else than treating yourself with care and kindness. Just like you would treat a good friend. For instance:
  • We speak to a friend with respect
  • We listen to a friend without judging him
  • We lift our friend and encourage him if something went wrong
  • We tell him and show him that we like him
  • We forgive him if he was a jerk, for we know that people are not perfect and everyone has bad days
That's how we should treat ourselves. With care and respect. Non-judgemental. Eye to eye. Without accusations and cruelness.
We empower and comfort ourselves in difficult situations and lift ourselves up. We allow ourselves to make mistakes or even be jerks sometimes. We forgive ourselves.
The easiest way to be kinder to yourself is to identify when you are not. You could write a journal, set a timer on your cell phone or use good old post-its.
Hold yourself accountable and track your progress.
  • "I was kind to myself when I burned the sandwich today. Normally I would have insulted myself. But not today. Good job."
 

6. I consider my strengths (realistic self-assessment)

"I know what I can do and what I cannot do (yet)."
Difficulties with self-acceptance are most often related to our focus. You know about the half-full and half-empty glass. Even optimistic people can be cruel and unforgiving to themselves.Every person has strengths and weaknesses. Ugly and pretty features. We have no problems accepting this duality in others.Many of us focus primarily on our ugly spots. Our shortcomings, imperfections, and weaknesses.Take off your glasses and put on a better pair!You need glasses that allow you to not just see everyone else in a realistic light, but also yourself.The first step is the realization that you are wearing glasses that make you look ugly. Glasses that prevent you from seeing your wonderful and pretty features.The glasses have perhaps been built by signals from your childhood, past relationships - painful experiences of all sorts.Every person has talents and strengths.Your task: Switch glasses and go on a hunt. The hunt for what is great about you. A few questions that can help:
  • When do I have self-limiting thoughts? For instance: "That's nothing.", "That does not count.", "Everyone can do that"
  • What did I achieve in my life so far? And which features, skills have helped achieve it?
  • What is dear to my heart? And which of my positive character traits does that point to?
  • What do others compliment me on?
You can also take a minute at the end of the day and ask yourself: What did I do well today?
This way you focus on every achievement of yours. The small and the big.

7. I live my values (self-actualization/self-realization)

"I am true to myself."
Earlier you read how important it is to know who you are. Part of this is to know what is important to you because that provides you with inner strength.It's not enough to know your own values. You also have to live up to them, live them and defend them. If we don't do that we will soon lose self-respect.If I live my own values as good as I can, my self-respect will grow. It's important to live what is important to you.But how do you know what is of crucial importance to you?If I refuse to produce plastic waste, support Greenpeace and march against environmental pollution, "environmental protection" is one of my values.If I take care of my loved ones each day, focused on making everyone's life as good as I can, "family" might be one of my values.There are so many values. Tolerance, togetherness, fairness, autonomy, success, harmony ... and, and, and.We all have values. But we are also confronted with situations that make us question our values. That tempt us to compromise or even give up on them.It's only human to buckle from time to time - and to forgive yourself for it. It is even better to hold up your values and adjust your life accordingly. 100% is not always possible, but we should strive for it.That is the way to go. How can I achieve that? Ask yourself:
  • What is important to me?
  • How does someone act who considers these things of importance?
Then try to bring your actions in line with your values and beliefs.
That enables you to look in the mirror and say with pride: "I am true to myself. I live according to my values."

8. I solve my problems (problem-solving competence)

"I take charge of my life."
People with a high level of self-esteem solve their problems. That does not mean they are invincible superheroes but that they attempt to find solutions to their problems. They are accountable. They don't put their head in the sand and wait it out.They don't wait around for a hero to rescue them and make their problems go away.They tell themselves: "Dang. That s .... and can't continue like that. Therefore, I will take action."If you take care of your problems (starting with simple ones for quick rewards) your self-respect will increase. Because you are doing something for yourself. Because you are important enough to yourself to stand up for yourself and hold yourself accountable.Starting with the problems that are simple and easy to solve: take care of your problems. One after the other. That creates confidence and self-respect. 

Last but not least: Be patient

"I take my time and stay on it."
Yes, I know. This article has a lot of ideas.  And each of them is ambitious and cannot be implemented in a day.Therefore, one thing is important: Do not implement all ideas at the same time. Instead, pick a single idea and try it.When you played with it for a while and it becomes a habit, pick the next one. As they say: "The longest journey starts with the first step". And every step brings you closer to the finishing line. It's tempting to change everything at once.Sadly, lasting change does not work like this.Patience, discipline, realistic expectations and persistence are key when it comes to making impactful changes. We must not forget that implementing new habits and beliefs requires our brain to change, remove neural pathways that do no longer serve us and replace them with new ones.Therefore: Start small, stay on it, enjoy small successes. Change another small thing, continue to be persistent and enjoy your progress.Repeat until the changes have become habits, automatisms.Yes, that can take a few weeks and months. Things that crept in over the years cannot change in a day.It's understandable that we want to make changes quickly. "Change your brain in 10 days" will not work, just as "lose 20 pounds in 3 days".My advice is: Take the first step to more confidence, self-acceptance, and self-esteem. Enjoy the ride and you will see: It's worth it.And this will help you: PROJECT CONFIDENCE

8 Best Tips For Introverts

8 Best Tips For Introverts


Extroverts benefit from these tips too!


It's difficult to be an introvert. Often it seems as if the surest way to be the center of attention is trying to avoid it.

Most of our interests, character traits and likes have developed during our childhood. Our family, friends, our profession, and setbacks and failure - all of that influenced who we became and what is important to us.

While you can change the color of your hair with some dye, the same does not apply to personality traits, for instance, introversion and extroversion.

Introvert, extrovert, ambivert


The third category is ambiverts (like myself).

Introverted people are quiet while extroverted people are "loud" and outgoing.  At least this is our perception. In reality, we are chameleons. We adapt to our environment. That's easier for some than for others.

Introverted people can act just like extroverts. And that is advisable in many situations. For instance, when you are applying for a job, host an exhibition or want to make new friends.

Extroverted people often act like introverts. That too can be advisable in many situations. For instance, in a relationship or when you start a new job.

How do you fuel your engine?


The important distinction between an extrovert and introvert is on the inside. Important is

  • How does a person refuel and recharge?
  • What is the source of power?
  • How does he recover?

Introverts

Introverted people often gain strength in a quiet setting. They can replenish best when they are alone with their thoughts.

Extroverts

Extroverts can gain power and strengths when they are in the company of others. Dialogue and togetherness are sources of power for them.

Ambiverts

And then there are ambiverts. They can switch from introverted to extroverted pretty well. They can extract energy from togetherness but also need their alone time.

From black and white to gray


Introversion and extroversion are not inflexible categories. Most of us are somewhere in the middle with a tendency to one.

Fact is there are introverted people and extroverted people. And the difference is in our brain. Introverted people process impressions different from extroverts.

Introverts have different needs.

Great Tips For Introverts


If you are extroverted, you will still find value in this article. I am sure that there are introverted people in your personal or professional environment. Knowing how they tick can only help your relationships.

1. Find your energy spots and sources of energy


If you are introverted, you know to refuel and recharge your battery you need alone time and quietness. Consider

  • Where do you feel most comfortable?
  • Where can you refuel and regenerate?

You might learn about yourself that the best situation for you is not to sit home alone. Maybe you're feeling more comfortable on a long ride on the highway in a public library, etc.

Find out where you can refuel and make sure you can access this energy spots all the time

What are you doing when you want to energize? One likes to listen to music while the next prefers reading a book. Some resort to mindfulness while others prefer to do nothing at all.

  • What strengthens you?
  • What aids and empowers you the most?

Find out how you can energize best and make sure you have a lot of this in your life. Often an energy spot and energy source can be combined. For instance, if you're reading a book in a public library.

2. Don't wear a label on your forehead


A lot of introverted people carry the label "introvert" like a crown.

They will often say something like: "That is difficult for me because I am introverted." After hearing it for the second or third time, people will get annoyed.

Remove the label. There is no need to emphasize that you are introverted. You just are. Empathic people and people who care about you will be understanding.

And the rest? They will not develop sympathy or be more understanding because you tell them you are introverted.

That doesn't mean you should hide that you are introverted. Just don't use it as an excuse or explanation.

Make a conscious decision whom and when you will tell that you are introverted. Try not to stick a label on your forehead.

3. Don't shoot your own foot


Many introverted people have been through a lot of suffering. Especially when they spend a lot of time with extroverted people who never show a lot of compassion for their otherness.

When they are young, other kids might mock them because they often choose to be alone. Parents might try to pressure them because they play outside less often than their siblings.

As grown-ups, they embrace their new freedom. Finally, they can decide whom they want to spend time with. Sometimes that leads to isolation. For some, withdrawal has become a habit while others want to avoid to be pressured again.

If that applies to you make sure you notice it. You are a grown up now. You decide how you want to live and how often you want to go out. Just make a conscious decision and do not allow negative experience or fear taking control of the way you live your life.

? Ask yourself, do I live like I want to? Would I want more or less excitement and people in my life? Which experience might block me from living the life that I truly want to live?

4. Have faith in others


Introverts often feel like nobody understands them. For instance, when they RSVP with "no" just because they want to think about it and not decide right away. Experience has taught them that every other reply leads to discussions.

You could still give others the chance that they might understand you. Without a big fuss. Just being yourself. Without explaining yourself or apologizing for who you are.

If you feel that this is difficult for you. Contact me and we can discuss if my EsteemedMe program is right for you.

? Give others the chance to accept you for who you are. That implies that you have to be yourself. Without fuss, explanations or apologies.

5. Leave your comfort zone


Often in life, it feels like everything happens at the same time. One appointment after the other and a stressful week at work followed by a workshop on the weekend. And on Sunday, it's your grandma's birthday.

You could cancel the workshop or not attend the birthday party. But maybe it will be great to hang out with your family again?

It is often very rewarding to push your own limits. You can make the conscious decision that even though it will cost your last bits of energy you attend all of the aforementioned.

? Confide in yourself and push your limits from time to time. Just make sure that you recharge your battery as soon as possible.

6. Appreciate who you are


Introverted people often feel exotic or even alien. That is not surprising because a there are more extroverted people and because they are "louder" they are highly visible.

There is nothing wrong with being exotic or different. We're all "different" if we are authentic. The problem is that for many people "different" has a negative connotation. Our society has conditioned us to comply. "What are people going to say?"  Even if we are not aware of it this way of thinking is still an us.

Society has changed. We can risk being different. It's okay. We can admit that we are not party people and that we want to spend our lunch break alone.

? Understand that there is nothing wrong with being yourself. Different is just different. Authenticity cannot be trained. Self-esteem can. Contact me if you need a hand. 

7. Accept incomprehension


It will happen to you all over and over again that you come across insensitive people. Your boss might not understand that you would rather go home instead of an after work party or your friend doesn't understand why you wouldn't want to go to the concert with him or her.

Develop strategies to handle reactions like this. Without blaming yourself for who you are.

Create a strategy of how you will handle incomprehension and negative feedback. We must learn to accept that not everyone will like everything we say or do all the time. And that is okay. A high level of emotional intelligence is extremely helpful for learning to deal with rejection or criticism.

8. Don't get lost in details


Do you want to be heard in meetings? Do you want others to understand what you have to add to a discussion?

Mind the difference. Introverted people appreciate complexity. They have a good sense for details. It's one of their strengths.

Extroverted people sometimes can be irritated by complexity. They focus on the big picture and might lose interest or focus if you don't get to the point fast.

When communicating with extroverted people focus on what matters. Keep the big picture in mind. Communication skills is yet another advantage of people with a high EQ

What next?


Did you discover a few tips that can be helpful to you?

You could pick one, two or three tips and implement them into your daily life in the next days. Some tips might require you to do soul-searching first. But if you are an introvert, this will not be too hard on you (;

And if you read this article as an extrovert you have gained a better understanding why your introverted friend or coworker sometimes seems a bit off.

I have more tips to share but this article is already pretty long. If you would like to see part two - just drop me a line.

Why LOA Does Not Work For You – Revisited

Today I was reminded of an old post of mine when I watched a fabulous series of videos by NeuroGym's John Assaraf.Ah, sweet nostalgia. I wrote this in summer 2015 when I just started this blog. "Why the law of attraction is not working for you"NeuroGym has created a series of four free videos of which the first has been released to the public today.

NeuroGym Winning the Game of Money Video Series

I had the pleasure to watch the videos and am thrilled to share them with you.Not only do they contain the explanation why the law of attraction does not seem to work for you - they also provide a solution.These videos contain more value than a lot of paid programs and I consider them a must watch.You can watch them HERE

It's all about the brain

Certain areas of the brain influence whether you are going to achieve your goals or fail. The good thing is that neuroscience also offers us ways to unlock these hidden gates to our inner power.The brain is able to produce hormones that make us withdraw, give up and fail. Brain regions like the fear center are very helpful when a bear is after you. They are counterproductive if we hunt a goal.How can you change your brain to support you in achieving your goals rather than making it harder or even impossible?Find out now. WATCH VIDEO

When Meetings Don’t Meet Expectations

Everyone who has ever worked in an office knows the pain:

  • Unproductive meetings
  • Meetings that go on for too long
  • People don´t how up in time
A former boss (bless his heart) once told me: A meeting should never last longer than one hour. If it lasts longer people are either repeating themselves are it is not a topic for one meeting.
