I began my career in Metaphysics over 25 years ago when I was hired by the exclusive King Ranch Health Spa and Wellness Retreat to teach yoga and guided meditation to such high profile guests as Toller Cranston and Andre Agassi. My position at the King Ranch really inspired me, as well as taught me a lot about success. One of the most important things that I learned is that winners take time to train their mind as well as their body, and they do this through some form of meditation.
I take individuals or groups through a guided meditation that is meant to improve their performance in whatever they do. I will speak with the meeting facilitator and find out what the group's goal is for themselves (it could be better health for a ladies group, or more sales for a corporate group) and then I write the meditation so that they can remove the limitations that are blocking them from achieving their goals. I present this custom guided medit...

The Addictions Coach announced the launch of their new Addictions Academy www.theaddictionsacademy.com to train and standardize the drug and alcohol treatment industry.

I was recently interviewed for an article in a leading Canadian business magazine on the interesting topic of dual careerists - people who pursue two careers instead of one. Check out if this lifestyle appeals to you and enjoy the article below!
The Double Life of Dual Careerists by Day Helesic
"Prosperity, variety, pursuit of passions, the opportunity to be creative-these are the hallmarks of a successful and meaningful work life. The chances of a single career providing all that? Slim. That's why today's professionals are often choosing to boost their career satisfaction by doubling up. If you want it all, why settle for just one career?
Dual careerist Dr. Daniel Kalla is an emergency-room physician and international best-selling novelist. In 1998, after establishing his medical career in his mid-20s at Vancouver's St. Paul's and Mount Saint Joseph hospitals, he took a screenwriting course at SFU that inspired him to write. "I loved creative writing right through elementary scho...
You are meeting a college roommate at noon at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. You haven't seen her in twenty-five years and you were surprised when she sent you a friend request on Facebook. She's driving into the city from Greenwich and you're going to take the subway uptown. You're a wildly famous blogger but you're perpetually broke because, ironically, nobody will pay you to write unless you're actually so successful that you don't need the money; thus, the last time you saw the inside of a taxi was when you were trying to score blow after not getting into Nell's. The same college roommate had just lost her virginity and was convinced she was both pregnant and had AIDS even though they had used two condoms at the same time. It was 1983. Good times.
You don't want to be late to your rendezvous because you know that lateness implies that you think your time is more valuable than the other person's; you're fed-up with wankers telling you how "crazybusy" they are; and your most recent...
I used to get peeved when I called Federal Express and their voice answering system said, "Please hold. A representative will be with you momentarily." I thought, "Well, that won't do much good. I won't be able to say everything I have to say during just one moment."
The primary definition of "momentarily" is during one moment, not in one moment. Thus, when I write "You Will Die Momentarily" I mean that your transition from life to death will occur rapidly, not imminently. The dying process may or may not take a long time (actually it already started the moment you were born), but the transition from life to death occurs in a single moment, suddenly, momentarily.
How often should one think about his or her upcoming rendezvous with non-existence?
-- Ira Israel
Our perception of time is curious. Ponder this:
Fact: You didn't exist for millions of years.
Fact: You were born and your body will inhabit a minuscule spot on planet earth for a finite period of time.
Fact: You will die and n...
Kudos to the extraordinarily brave Cameron Russell whose TEDTalk is the paramount of authenticity and a remarkable deconstruction of one of the myths upon which the empire named after Italian mapmaker Amerigo Vespucci was founded.
Max Weber in "The Protestant Work Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism" wrote that the underlying ethos of our society was that if you work hard and quietly save your money, God would reward you. Thorsten Veblen observed what he called "conspicuous consumption," which can be seen as a subconscious inversion of Weber's principle: people attempt to prove that they have merit by displaying status symbols. This is also an efficient means of "affinity grouping" as David Brooks noted in Bobos in Paradise, e.g. First Class seating, Premiere lounges, exclusive clubs, vacation destinations, credit card colors, zip codes, etc.
Then Malcom Gladwell in Outliers noticed peculiar "coincidences" such as being born in 1955 -- as Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were -- and having ...
The odds of substance abuse issues finding their way into your business are sizeable. According to the Department of Health and Human Services' 2011 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, of the 18.9 million adults classified with dependence or abuse, nearly 52 percent were employed.
"Many employers miss the signs," says Cali Estes, a certified drug and alcohol therapist who works with companies and individuals dealing with substance abuse in the workplace and elsewhere.
Those signs can be subtle, but might include physical signs like bloodshot eyes and residual alcohol smell. Others include excessive absences, coming to work late and leaving early. Some drugs might make the user active, so someone who is up and walking around all the time and who looks really busy, but isn't getting anything done might be showing signs of addiction, Estes says. The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence publishes this list of common signs.
When employees have addiction issues, it can a...
Preparing for job interviews is obviously a critical stage in the hiring process. It's important to view the interview from the employer's perspective. Prior to the interview, you must anticipate all possible objections they could have in hiring you and develop the most effective interview strategies to alleviate the employer's apprehension. During the interview, pay close attention to the employer's questions because often their questions indicate possible objections (if it's a panel interview, you should also make note of who asked what questions). In the case where the employer can't ask specific questions due to government employment standards, you have the option of taking the initiative to address the employer's possible objections.
Here are the top 10 objections you face in getting hired:
1. Too young
- You don't have enough practical skills; you're too intellectual; you aren't hands-on savvy
- You'll require too much training time and $ to get up to speed
- You're not dep...
What are the 2 major types of recruiters?
- Recruiter gets paid whether or not a candidate is matched to a position
- Note: Recruiter less likely to be interested in meeting you right away unless you're a perfect match for a current position they are filling
- Recruiter only gets paid if they complete a match and fill a position
- Note: Recruiter more likely to be interested in meeting you because they are driven to build a large candidate pool from which to match employer requirements
Why do companies hire recruiters?
- Workload constraints:
- HR department is too small to take on recruiting functions
- Hiring expertise:
- Lack competence to attract the right candidates (writing ads, using LinkedIn, screening resumes, interviewing)
- Time constraints:
- In-house hiring methods slower than recruiter methods
- Specialized positions:
- Job is unique
- Industry expertise:
- Lack in-depth knowledge of ind...
Making a transition to a new career can be very challenging. Believe me, I know from my career counseling practice that for many executives and professionals who decide to make a career change, it’s often not easy. But when they finally decide that a dead end, toxic or boring job is no longer tolerable, then they find the courage to dig deep and do what it takes to find a new job they love.
So, what are the big payoff’s for people who take the time to pause, figure out what makes them happy at work and who launch their careers in a new direction? From all the feedback and letters I get from career counseling clients who now live a life of passion and purpose, here are the top 10 reasons they love their new careers (in no particular order):
1. Meaningful work. They experience inner satisfaction and a strength that comes from making a difference. They are happy from the inside out.
2. Qualifications are on the cutting edge. They’re driven by an ongoing desire for new...
