The Hidden Dynamics That Inspire Leadership and Trust – Simon Sinek

Simon-Sinek-leaders-eat-lastGreat lessons on Leadership. How to build trust and connection with people around you.

I felt it was a great video and wanted to share it with you.

Email is great for exchange of information, phoning and meeting people is actually better. It shows you care and prepared to put time and energy into your communication and relationships.  I meet up with friends as often as possible and give people my time.
At times it is quicker/easier to reach a lot of people via email or other mass media.  This connection is weaker but I still hope you value it and take time to watch the video to benefit yourself and those around you.

People feel more comfortable around those they can trust in an organisation/team/family/company and know they’ve got their back. Do you feel this way around your colleagues? What about companies you deal with? Are they looking out for themselves only or for your interests? Do they give others credit or try to steal credit from them because they don’t feel safe?
Groups like this cause stress and cortisol, which makes people self-interested, less empathic and less generous – only caring about themselves.  This has a negative knock-on affect to those around them.

Leadership is not a rank or position in an organisation, it is about a decision to look after the people around you.

Remember, I got your back!

In this in-depth talk, ethnographer and leadership expert Simon Sinek reveals the hidden dynamics that inspire leadership and trust. In biological terms, leaders get the first pick of food and other spoils, but at a cost. When danger is present, the group expects the leader to mitigate all threats even at the expense of their personal well-being. Understanding this deep-seated expectation is the key difference between someone who is just an “authority” versus a true “leader.”

A trained ethnographer and the author of Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action, Simon Sinek has held a life-long curiosity for why people and organizations do the things they do. Studying the leaders and companies that make the greatest impact in the world and achieve a more lasting success than others, he discovered the formula that explains how they do it.

Sinek’s amazingly simple idea, The Golden Circle, is grounded in the biology of human decision-making and is changing how leaders and companies think and act.

His innovative views on business and leadership have earned him invitations to meet with an array of leaders and organizations, including Microsoft, Dell, SAP, Intel, Chanel, Members of the United States Congress, and the Ambassadors of Bahrain and Iraq.Sinek recently became an adjunct staff member of the RAND Corporation, one of the most highly regarded think tanks in the world. He also works with the non-profit Education for Employment Foundation to help create opportunities for young men and women in the Middle East region. He lives in New York, where he teaches graduate level strategic communications at Columbia University.

Rich Dad Predictions – The Good, The Bad and The Opportunities (2014)

dilbert-creator-heres-why-i-predicted-market-manipulators-will-make-the-stock-market-crash-20The three things you should work hard for in life are:
1) Health
2) Wealth
3) Happiness

The following are notes I made from (and expanded on) Rich Dad Robert Kiyosaki’s 2014 Predictions webinar earlier this year.

- Robert says in the next 5-20 years a Massive correction in the stock market.
Well in my opinion even a broken clock is right twice a day, so allowing himself such a big period to be right.
Although those with market linked pensions and other long term investments DO need to pay attention NOW, else in 5-20 years they will see the inevitable happen, as predicted.
So 2019 is the date, which will be here very soon.
(I believe the market will dip before mid-2014)

Stock market is rigged and insiders depend on it, so trying to keep it that way. Beware of financial planners/advisors, as they are just sales people, not real investors.

A market ‘Investor’ has a ‘buy and hold’ strategy that benefits the brokers and market makers, who make money whether you win or lose.

- Traders go with the market, Traders aren’t concerned about controlling the market, they are concerned about controlling their position.

Unsustainable resources, such as peak oil.
A lot of manipulation is happening, trust yourself if something doesn’t seem right.

Everything comes from the earth, then at the top of the pyramid is the paper derivative which is the most risky.  That is where everyone is.
Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, pensions (US 401K) will lose the most and the fastest, with electronic trading. 90% of population will get wiped out financially.
Also your house is not an asset.

- If you’re not prepared for upcoming market correction, you still have time to do so.

- Bucky Fuller said in the industrial age you could see change coming – but you can’t see it coming today!

People are now doubling up and up to 3 generations are starting to live in one home again.

- Understanding the relationship between a “policy” and a “demographic” will help predict the future.
eg. Baby boomers are going to all retire at the same time and need health care.
More people pulling out of the stock market than going in.

Tax laws show what the policy is, Govt makes tax allowances to make people put money where they want it.
Currently Govt wants investors to provide ‘low cost housing’ so benefits are there.

In business investment a cap rate is a return a business will provide for the investment you put in.
In stock market this is called the P/E ratio (stock price/earnings per share), which has traditionally been 13/14, now at 19 ratio, giving less value than usual.

Financial advisors aren’t educated in the market, similar to mortgage brokers, who are trained to sell you a product and make a commission versus being investors/traders themselves.
Also most accountants only understand maths, not making money.
- Ask the what they are studying!

- When the market crash hits, most people will be wiped out because of their lack of financial education.

- Most people don’t address their financial issues because they are intimidated by what they don’t know.

- Advice isn’t education. Be sure to work with those who can teach you what you need to know.

There are three levels of wealth:
1) Primary (real resources like fish, oil, gold)
2) Entrepreneurs (get the resources and use them)
3) Paper (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, savings)

Price of oil and resources is always going up.

- The financial crash will be quick and massive due to exponential progression/change.
(The bull goes up the stairs, the bear goes out the window!)

Entrepreneurship is best place to be and get in a business that you can do well in during an up and down market!

Most people in stock market and property/real estate are relying on false security of prices going up.

- When the financial environment changes, you need to be able to change with it.

Robert is now a ‘prepper’ as well. Financial preparation, ask “how can I protect my situation”?
Have friends you can count on. Make sure have food, water and defences/guns. Get prepared and stocked up.

- When investing in property/real estate, take into consideration what industries and economies will affect your investment.

Energy, healthcare, technology and education are four industries that are growing.

- Migration drives real estate prices.

Read “Shaping Our Nation” by Michael Barone if based in the USA, as it’s about US migration and politics.

Taxes are going to go up.

- Rethink your position in the stock market.

- When it comes to investing, it’s never too late to start.

- You are ultimately responsible for your money. Take action!

- Make your financial well-being one of your top priorities.
People say they are too busy with work, career, family, children etc…

- Think ‘preparation’ instead of ‘panic’

Derivative are mass weapons of financial destruction.
In 2007, there were $700 trillion of derivatives, which caused the crash (not sub-prime).
Now in 2014, derivative market is $1.2 quadrillion, which is waiting to be triggered!!

Those who have lost it all have to go back to zero and start again – with 1-bed flat, with a small business.
Taken it easy all their life, being an employee, saving and investing in stocks as they’ve been told.
Not qualified to play the game in the future.
You can only handle things in the PRESENT!

Your greatest asset is your brain, your mind and your friends.

The more you know, the more you realise you don’t know!
Continue to study, get more information and listen to different people.

There is a difference between spending and investing.

Difference between education and a sales pitch:
Sales pitch only gives you the good side,
eg: go to school and get a secure job (= pay more in taxes and feed the system)
OR put your money in the bank to get interest (= get little in interest and inflation runs much higher)
EDUCATION gives you BOTH sides, the good and the bad!

When you study the data, you start to see the trends.

Read books; study; learn; get a coach; take action. Do something.

20 Transformational Truths Form Sages Throughout the Ages

Throughout the ages, there have been many who have had gotten a taste of incredibly mesmerizing higher states of consciousness. Rather than keep their experiential knowledge and wisdom about the higher and deeper elements of existence to themselves they spread the word to others, be it through spoken word, written works, or other methods. Thanks to the sages, luminaries, spiritual teachers, thinkers, and every-day people who had an enlightening experience we can ignite the light of expanded awareness about the higher and deeper aspects of the human experience and of existence itself from such people. When the future looks bleak and the motivation to excel and advance seems pointless we can look up to those who have lived and are still alive who possess that inner wisdom which they had realized through their own personal experiences of an enlightened state of awareness.

The transformational truths that such guiding lights to humanity express to us can raise our level of hope once more to the domain of energy that makes us more proactive. Reignited excitement and passion can drive us closer to the successes we imagined and dreamed would come true. We are all capable of incredible feats. Ask yourself if your state of mind is stopping you from realizing that realized life success story that you undoubtedly had played within your head so many times before.

Don’t let it stay a dream, let it become a reality. Living in the 21st century of our archaic timeline we have the amazing opportunity to taste such consciousness-shifting words of wisdom and we will take a look at 20 such enlightening truths from sages throughout the ages. Allow for these timeless words nourish your mind, heart and soul.

Transformational Truth 1
A human being is a part of a whole, called by us a universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest … a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
Albert Einstein

Transformational Truth 2
You should be an island to yourself, a refuge to yourself, not dependent on any other but taking refuge in the truth and none other than the truth. And how do you become an island and a refuge to yourself? In this way. You see and contemplate your body as composed of all the forces of the universe. Ardently and mindfully you steer your body-self by restraining your discontent with the world about you. In the same way, observe and contemplate your feelings and use that same ardent restraint and self-possession against enslavement by greed or desire. By seeing attachment to your body and feelings as blocking the truth, you dwell in self-possession and ardent liberation from those ties. This is how you live as an island to yourself and a refuge to yourself. Whoever dwells in this contemplation, islanded by the truth and taking refuge in the truth–that one will come out of the darkness and into the light.
The Digha Nikaya

Transformational Truth 3
“Life is what you make it,” this is very true.
Find beauty and magic in all things,
and the Love that sees you through.
When you look at the world where you live,
seek not your gain, but what you can give.
When a man is poor, and hungers, and thirsts,
serve not yourself til you serve this man first.
When a man is down and seeks shelter from cold, give him shelter.
You’ll receive blessings untold.
Live by the Golden Rule:
Do unto others as you’d have done unto you.
And always remember:
When you destroy, you destroy a part of you, too.
Life is what you make of it!

Transformational Truth 4
Loving this world, seeing the beauty in everything.
Appreciating every moment as a beautiful, wholly contained,
pearl of eternal nature, this is the world to me.
A never ending string of pearls…. every moment is in and of it’s self a life time,
and when we have affection and let ourselves experience life without expectation…
that is when the majesty of the world opens her petals to us…
And welcomes us home.
Carlos Castaneda

Transformational Truth 5
We may liken truth to a mountain, and the various interpretations of that truth to different paths leading up to the summit. Many people are traveling along all of these paths and every one, while he is at the bottom, thinks his path is the only one; he sees only a small part of the mountain, and may therefore be justified in crying to his brothers, “You are wrong! Come over to my path; this is the only one that leads to the top.” But as all these people progress upward, they will see that the paths converge at the top and that they are all one in the ultimate.
Max Heindel

Transformational Truth 6
Stop attributing names and shapes to the essentially nameless and formless, realize that every mode of perception is subjective, that what is seen or heard, touched or smelled, felt or thought,expected or imagined, is in the mind and not in reality, and you will experience peace and freedom from fear.
Nisargadatta Maharaj

Transformational Truth 7
Do not believe anything
because it is said by an authority,
or if it is said to come from angels,
or from gods,
or from an inspired source.
Believe it only if you have explored it
in your own heart
and mind and body
and found it to be true.
Work out your own path,
through diligence.
Gautama Buddha

Transformational Truth 8
Every man has his woman within him and every woman has her man within her. Only the meditator comes to know his whole being. Suddenly his inner woman and the inner man melt and merge into each other. That creates an orgasmic state in him. Now it is no more a momentary experience that comes and goes; it is something that continues, day in and day out, like the heart beating or breathing.

Transformational Truth 9
When you find the way
Others will find you
Passing by on the road
They will be drawn to your door
The way that cannot be heard
will be reflected in your voice
The way that cannot be seen
Will be reflected in your eyes
Lao Tzu

Transformational Truth 10
When we experience the pain of another person, we instinctively want to take away that pain. But by taking away the other person’s pain, we also take away his or her opportunity to grow. To be truly compassionate, we must be able to share another person’s suffering and pain — knowing there is nothing we can do to relieve it and that we are not responsible for it, and yet knowing and understanding what that pain feels like.
John Gray

Transformational Truth 11
How people see the world is often a reflection of how they see themselves. If they think that the world is just a cesspool of lies and deceit, then they themselves may be full of lies and deceit. Watch out for those people who are always telling you just how corrupt the rest of the world is. As the saying goes, “It takes one to know one.”
David J. Lieberman

Transformational Truth 12

Throw away holiness and wisdom,
and people will be a hundred times happier.
Throw away morality and justice,
and people will do the right thing.
Throw away industry and profit,
and there won’t be any thieves.
If these three aren’t enough,
just stay at the center of the circle
and let all things take their course
Lao Tzu

Transformational Truth 13

Ego is a structure that is erected by a neurotic individual who is a member of a neurotic culture against the facts of the matter. And culture, which we put on like an overcoat, is the collectivized consensus about what sort of neurotic behaviors are acceptable.
Terence McKenna

Transformational Truth 14

Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive, because your words become your behaviors.
Keep your behaviors positive, because your behaviors become your habits.
Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values.
Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.

Transformational Truth 15

All the forms of Life in the Universe may be looked upon as being manifestations of the One and Universal Principle of Life in various forms; the whole of the Cosmos, being a product of the Universal Mind, may be regarded as universal, absolute consciousness becoming relative in separate forms. The universal consciousness of the Universal Mind forms spiritual centres of consciousness in living beings, whereby each being may feel and know its surroundings; and as the kind of living beings expands, their consciousness and power of sensation and perception expand with it; for all their powers belong to the mind. and not to the body: the latter without the mind is merely a form without life.
Franz Hartmann

Transformational Truth 16

If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely.
If we understood the awesome power of our words, we would prefer silence to almost anything negative.
In our thoughts and words we create our own weaknesses and our own strengths.
Our limitations and joys begin in our hearts.
We can always replace negative with positive. Bettie Eadie

Transformational Truth 17

Since time without beginning, the nature of Awakened Mind and Emptiness has consisted of the same, absolute non-duality of no birth or death, no existence or non-existence, no purity or impurity, no movement or stillness, no young or old, no inside or outside, no shape and form, no sound and color. Neither striving nor searching, one should not use intellect to understand nor words to express Awakened Mind. One should not think that it is a place or things, name or form. One should not think that it is a place or things, name or form. Only then is it realized that all Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and sentient beings possess the same natural state of great Nirvana.
Huang Po

Transformational Truth 18

As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery. We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger and attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion, a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness.
Dalai Lama

Transformational Truth 19

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.

John Lennon

Transformational Truth 20

Greet everyone you meet with a warm smile, no matter how busy you are.
Don’t rush encounters with coworkers, family and friends.
Speak softly. Listen attentively.
Act as if every conversation you have is the most important thing on your mind today.
Look your children and your partner in the eyes when they talk to you.
Stroke the cat, caress the dog.
Lavish love on every living being you meet.
See how different you feel at the end of the day.
Sarah Ban Breathnach

Is ENV2 Better Than WordPress And Blogspot/Blogger? [Blog Beast Launch]


Whilst I was trying out the new ENV2 blog platform for a client I was surprised how simple, clean and easy to use it was, compared to Blogspot and WordPress that I am familiar with.

First A Little Bit Of Background

I had avoided Empower Network for just over 2 years as I ‘thought’ it was a scam or would fail. Of course thinking something and having real evidence are two different things.

There were the likes of Banners Broker, Shopping Genie and Zeek Rewards and various other smaller, unsuccessful ventures.  Each being touted as the ‘next big thing’.  I steered clear and recommended people do the research.

Some of these also got a thrashing online with the likes of “[enter company name] Scam” ranking highly in Google search terms for the [MLM company name].  Sometimes these posts are right but those who did it about Empower Network seemed to be people that think they will “get rich quick” and don’t realise they have to do work for it to happen! The other type of people that complained were of the “employee” mindset with an “it will never work” attitude, so knocked it without trying it.

The main reason for avoiding Empower Network was the spammy behaviour of some of the ‘annoying’ network marketers who preach but don’t practice. They jump from one new thing to the next and then try to force it down your throat. Very poor practice and some ‘Network Marketing’ companies actually promote this!!
They come from lack and desperation. Not a really attractive quality.

Then they went and got banned from Facebook!! Yes really, the quality of many of the posts was so low and spammy, with it being put everywhere, that Mark Zuckerberg just had to say “no more”!

Dave Sharpe and Dave Wood should have rounded these people up and warned them, then removed them from the programme if it happened again.
Fortunately those with the spammy posts and “get rich quick mindset” disappeared quick as they appear!

Well fast forward to Today!

Despite the challenged mentioned above, Empower Network has survived and thrived and when I looked into the programme for someone, it actually was very transparent and professionally run, with a lot of investment going back into supporting it’s LOYAL members.

The only thing about it that they need to clear up is that of the “100% Commissions Paid“, these are actually split between you and your upline and you will actually be averaging just over 65% Commissions (by my rough calculations)  – which is still bloody good!!! (excuse my French).

A whole industry has also been created around ‘Empower Network’ from solo ad sellers, to membership groups, coaching, PBA (personal business assistants) – so that you can get help and support all the way… from providing autoresponder series, getting leads, to someone following up and making sales for you. 
How Cool is that!?

If you register with Pav here, you will get access to all this, become a member of ‘Prosperity Team’(a Top Group within Empower Network)
Find out more about Prosperity Team here (free membership if you register with the links on this page) >> Prosperity Team FAQ

Now back to their Basic Blogging platform, ENV2 which is in now being launched.

It is unbelievably simple to use and actually a technological jump forward.  I could easily upload images (and videos if I wanted to).  Writing a post a simple, with a few basic functions to learn, so not much mastery required.

The best thing is that is a Mobile Ready Blogging Platform - once set-up you can simply blog from your smart phone! How easy is that…

In addition, you can purchase further internet marketing training from Empower Network to learn, improve and polish your online skills.
But wait there’s more, it is also a “Business-In-A-Box” in that you can promote their products and get paid commissions and residual income too if you choose to.  You can either to be just be a customer (getting the platform for a fixed price that everyone pays) or become an affiliate as well (the latter just makes sense when you see the benefits).

Back to blogging, this new version (ENV2) allows you to get a URL domain name, point it to Empower Network servers and they HOST everything for you.  How simple is that!?  No need for hosting fees and messing around with servers, it’s all part of the package.
You can also host multiple blogs on the same platform as well!
There is also the usual SEO and tags features built in, that are simple to follow and can be added to get your post to rank for things you’ve written about.

You can also choose to blog publicly or to various members of your team in Empower Network. This creates a ‘community’ feel, similar to Facebook but only for Empower Network members.
So that’s an Easy To Use, Fully Hosted, Mobile Blogging On the Go!
(With a business opportunity attached.  I’ll cover these in later posts.)

Oh and by having the hosted website, people can once again share their links to their own blogs on Facebook! Yippee….

So you see, the guys (and gals) at Empower Network don’t see ‘problems’, just ‘opportunities for improvement. Which they have done with ENV2.

Find out more and register here:

And finally (for me today, not ENV2)


The only downside is that it currently requires images to be at least 260×260 pixels (so I had to resize a couple or hotlink to them elsewhere) which I guess means people are getting decent sized images on the blog, that helps with the look and feel of it.

Also for professional bloggers that want to leave their mark on the internet, people’s minds and the world forever. I would recommend also getting a self-hosted blog, that is backed up regularly. When you publish something on any platform, like online WordPress, Blogger, Twitter or Facebook -  the content is owned by one company.
Of course this won’t affect many of you, just the hardcore few – so I’ll be duplicating this post in various places (also helps with the Backlinks).

The other slight negative I found (although I expect it will be upgraded soon) is that it doesn’t have a HTML editing function for coders and geeks – although this does add to the simplicity of using the Blogging platform for newbies and beginners and everyone. I guess I just wanted to find something else to add to the list.
(Now I just need to find the ‘save draft’ and ‘edit’ buttons, just in case…)

You were expecting more negatives? Sorry, the whinging wussies are trolling the internet elsewhere today.  

This is a fantastic programme that you need to check out!

Look After Where You Live – Healthy Body and Mind

take-care-of-your-body-only-place-to-liveThis is my journey through health and nutrition in the last year.  Due to various health issues, dis-ease and stress, I decided to research things that would benefit me and make my life better, I consider it ‘health’ or ‘home insurance’, as things had gotten so bad that I needed to ensure I have somewhere to ‘live’ in the future and call home. So never mind about the stories for now, on how we got here, lets move forward with the solutions.  Here are my findings…

Of course there could be an entire book on each section, so be grateful I’ve put the ‘highlights’ into one short(ish) blog post for you to check out. (That was the intention and I have been adding bits since I started).
This has been compiled from many random ideas and areas, so may not ‘flow’ so well but all the information I want to share can be found if you read it all, then back to front and dip into the different sections.

This is what I’d recommend that you look at and USE to find out if it is good and works for you.
Of course it takes work and habit building to get used to a diet change (diet meaning “what you eat” not “lose weight plan”). Once you do make the changes though, you’ll feel better for it.

Buying REAL food will cost more money than you’re used to, I know as I spent most of my money on this in the last year.  But if you don’t invest in yourself and prefer to waste it on other stuff, then that’s your choice.  People always find time and money to spend on those things they VALUE. Is valuing your health, nutrition and wellbeing more important than everything else?
Look after your body as it’s the only place you have to live.

Remember your diet and food intake is only part of the important stuff to ensure you have somewhere to live (your body).

As well as the food stuff listed below, also keep in check your mind, associations and environment.  I’m going to cover the basics of the others briefly.

The issue is never what you originally think it is or as complicated. Remember a car (your body) is a complicated machine but it usually only takes a small simple part/nut/bolt that may become loose and cause problems elsewhere in the vehicle. It’s about finding that small tweak that you need, diet helps but you also need to check on all the other factors.
You can go see a mechanic/specialist (doctor, energy healer, acupuncturist, herbalist, homeopath etc.) or if they can’t find the problem, keep looking and maybe train/become a specialist yourself. It does not take as long as ‘they’ want you to believe to become knowledgeable about anything, you just need to be good at asking questions, finding answers and listening/learning.

What goes in is what comes out, so GIGO (garbage in=garbage out). This applies to your physical body through digestion and your mind.  Your mind is very powerful and will manifest most of your ill health and dis-ease, so  dealing with the food intake is only a small part of getting back to full and vital health.

Body: What you eat (covered below) and exercise. Check out “4 Hour Body by Tim Ferris” book for the exercise stuff. Create better habits for eating and exercising.  Even if you just start with gentle exercise such as swimming and a sauna.

Mind: Relax and meditate more.  Meditation has two forms, there is the stuff that relaxes you and puts you to sleep and then there is the wakeful meditation, that wakes you up and makes you AWARE of everything.
The Vortex by Abraham Hicks

Use your computer less or mindfully. Safari Browser add-on ‘Mindful Browsing’ – can block access to time wasting sites like Facebook and Gmail etc.
Firefox Browser use ‘Consciousness Bell’ to stop and become mindful for a moment:
Go to the bar at the top of Firefox Browser, then Tools > Add-Ons > Extensions > Consciousness Bell > Preferences, to change the settings

Habits- become aware, choose to consciously stop, stop, replace with new empowering habit. Don’t beat yourself if you slip, just breathe and start again.

Remember these are my experiences and may not work for you. (Although your resistance might be from your mind to the idea of changing)

Associations: Avoid people that talk negative, always seem to have problems, bring you down.  Seek out and replace them with people that are positive, work their way through things, uplift your soul!
It is common sense – you don’t need to save anyone, it’s THEIR journey, dump them if it is affecting you! Nope don’t need to hear your rationalisation and excuses/reasons.

Environment: The things that are around you and what you allow to enter your mind and body.
TV, media, radio, where you live and work/career.  Avoid watching crap TV. Don’t read/listen to ‘News’ daily (if it’s important for you, you will hear about it eventually).  I’m not saying ignore the ‘bad’ (perceived) news, just see the benefits of it and solutions – not the fear and problems they are selling!
A lot of the stuff that you see and hear throughout the day is subliminal and you unconsciously pick it up, be aware of it and reject it. Are those that live around you inspiring or is it time to move?
Fill the gaps with good material (films, documentaries, books, audios) that inspires you and supports you. Find a hobby you enjoy to keep you busy and occupied.
Don’t give your ‘energy’ to pendulums and false idols that will feed off it, ie. don’t get emotionally invested in some other celebrity’s journey or TV show. Put that emotional investment into your own life.

Sunlight – make sure you go out in the sun as often as possible. Not too long that it burns you though, best times are early morning or late afternoon. Lack of sun affect you in winter? Get a SAD (seasonal affected disorder) light from
If lack of sunlight affects you that much, move somewhere sunny.

Oxygen – Remember to BREATHE. Properly and deeply. Can help with doing aerobic exercise and/or listening to breathing meditation CDs. I still need to work on my breathing regularly, sometimes breathing shallow or forgetting to breathe properly.  Of ALL the personal development events and seminars I’ve been to this is the MOST important lesson I’ve ever learned.

Work – do you enjoy your job? If not see if you can improve conditions, eg. Transfer to different department, ask to go on a training course to improve your skills, work from home, ask for flexible hours. Really dislike it? Get a new job or start a business on the side.
Many businesses can be started cheaply, provide training, you can do part-time and from home.
Look into Internet Marketing business which you can do from anywhere in the world from a laptop, for example: check out

Energy: This will be noticed more by sensitive people, especially if your energy is low or not well protected it will be affected by weather change, big ‘news’ on Earth, other planetary effects, other people around you.
Look after your energy fields and your sensitivity around other people.  A lot more can be said on this but it still won’t answer your questions. To keep it simple look after your energy, rest if you need to; say ‘No’ to requests if you don’t feel like it, stay away from people that make you feel ‘bad’ and find out more about managing your energy.

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” -Nikola Tesla

Energy blockages are from the past/present/future when something happened to you or somebody said something, you interpreted it a certain way and locked it in. Be responsible for your own thoughts and how you react to situations.
Learn to trust people more. If they betray that trust, forgive them, remember the lessons learned and move on.  Being defensive may protect you but it also limits your experience and learning. Don’t grip onto heartache and bad feelings.

Hope I covered enough there, see my compiled food info below.

Don’t believe everything I write about, research it yourself and most importantly try it out and experience it for yourself.
None of it is likely to kill you, slow death foods can be bought from McDonalds and your local supermarkets (read the ingredients on labels). Quicker death supplements can be prescribed by your regular doctors (read the warning labels).

P.S. Please share the link to this page if you find it of value (it took me a few hours to write and months of education and experimentation on myself)


You know what to avoid! Usually you just don’t want to as you are addicted to the products.
Stop buying them or keeping them in your fridge, even if it is for your partner/family etc. If they want crap, let them go out and get it for themselves.  They may even benefit from the good stuff that you are going to take. (my 4 and 7 year old nephews love to try new stuff I get, especially the different juices and they’ve taken a liking to chia seed too!)

So let’s get the “what to avoid” list out of the way first. By ‘avoid’ I mean things you know you should ‘cut down’ on as much as you can/are prepared to:
Refined food
Processed crap
Fast food
Fake juices and flavoured water (read the label to see if the main ingredients are water, then SUGAR)
Replace your regular salt and pepper with whole pepper and rock salts, that you need to use a grinder for. You will find that they also taste much better as well.
Regular fruit and vegetables, as many as 50 pesticides can be found on many of them and you can only wash off so much, the rest of course finds its way into the food and into your body.
Companies and food producers are not required to label GMO (genetically modified) foods, fruit, veg. So if it doesn’t say “Organic” it probably isn’t (Google:”Monsanto”)
Buy ORGANIC Fruit and vegetable whenever you can!
You can’t always guarantee an Organic ‘label’ as it costs money but your local health food shop will be able to tell you the source of their products and if they are ‘natural’ (eg. grown in the wild/Amazon etc.)  You can also tell after eating the organic/real/natural fruit and nuts if it tastes ‘real’ and natural or is relatively tasteless and processed.
It is supermarket ‘packaged’ products you have to watch out for that is not labelled Organic!

If you must eat meat and eggs, make sure it is locally farm reared. When you eat it, think about and be grateful for the animal that you’re about to consume.
Eat consciously, read labels and research non-natural ingredient names you do not understand to find out what addictive and/or dangerous chemicals companies encourage you to put in your bodies so they can make profit.

Dark Leafy Greens – Kale, spinach, asaparagus, broccoli
Hemp Seeds (contain all 22 amino acids, and a balanced ratio of essential fatty acids)
- Chia seed for Omega 3 (organic, dark) – sprinkle on food or mix with water to drink – contain essential fats, dietary fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals
- Brazil nuts (organic) contains good quantities of vitamins, anti-oxidants and minerals. Including vitamin E, B-complex, protein, calcium, iron, zinc, selenium, magnesium, copper, manganese, potassium, and phosphorus.
- Walnuts (organic) are rich source of energy and contain health benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are essential for optimum health. Include omega 3, vitamin E, manganese, copper, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium
Many people recommend and swear by a ‘raw food’ diet. I personally prefer to have at least one hot meal a day, especially in cold weather.  Jacket Potatoes (these are not essential but I do love my JP’s for dinner, so I’m recommending them)

Check out the Hippocrates Health Institute and Dr. Brian Clements:

Eat less Acidic foods and more Alkaline foods.

“Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water splits into H+ and OH- ions, if there is an excess of H+, it is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.” – Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg on The Root Cause of Cancer; effectively stating that ‘Cancer can not exist in an alkaline body’!

Lots of water, ideally with a slice of fresh lemon (lemon actually alkalises the water making it better for you)
Coconut water for better hydration, potassium and electrolytes (I prefer
Fresh Vegetable juice, made yourself from organic vegetables
Fresh Fruit Juice
Find juice recipes from Jason Vale here
Remove cow juice (dairy milk) from your diet, alternatives to try are Soya milk (organic of course), Almond milk, Coconut milk.

Diet programmes, fads and supplements are only good for people who eat lots of crappy processed food and have a poor diet to start with.
Anyone who changes their diet away from refined, processed foods to a lower calorie ‘shake’ will see an improvement, although I am wary of the contents and trying to decipher the questionable ingredients of many of them.
If you are already eating sensibly and want to improve your diet and health, then check out Vega products for “clean, plant based nutrition” –
Vega One is similar to (in my opinion and to give you an idea) a ‘slim fast shake’ – not for the purpose of losing weight but the fact it works as a meal replacement by making you feel full, from all that good stuff they cram in there.
You should look at real health supplements and changing your eating habits for the long term, not a get fit quick scheme or fad diets.

“On the topic of stress and inflammation, Adam explained that when you’re upset, there’s a direct neurological connection to your gut. Interestingly, your skin and gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) are continuous, like a donut shape, so any gut issues will show-up on your skin. Inflammation in your gut is largely due to stress and diet.  An inflamed gut attracts water (bloating) which can be a temporary discomfort.  However, when the GI tract is inflamed over a long period of time, the chronic inflammation damages the cells and results in something called “leaky gut”. In a healthy gut, cells are positioned tightly together.  In contrast, the damaged cells in a leaky gut are held loosely together which results in particles leaking into the blood stream that shouldn’t be there.  This can break down the immune system and result in a wide range of chronic diseases including skin cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and congestive heart failure. To improve your nutrition he suggests adding glutamine, probiotics and omega 3s. ”

Healthy living is a way of being and commitment to better eating habits, the same way people commit themselves to ‘bad’ habits such as eating chocolate bars, drinking fizzy pop, alcohol consumption and smoking cigarettes for example. These are choices that have been made and a continuing commitment to continue with.

Decide today to replace chosen ‘bad’ habits with better ones that serve you and your health.
