In George Bernard Shaw's Man and Superman, the Devil asks Don Juan why he bothers learning about himself and his core motivation. Don Juan replies: "Why, to be able to choose the line of greatest advantage instead of yielding in the direction of the least resistance. And there you have our difference: to be in hell is to drift, to be in heaven is to steer."
If you do not steer, your actions will be dependent upon the cause-and-effect principles that define the path of least resistance, rather than by your interests and principles. For example, the Problem of Immediate Gratification [the PIG] refers to the principle that a small but immediate payoff has a much greater influence on motivation, and behavior, than a larger but delayed payoff. The PIG tricks people — even those who know better — to trade what is dear to them [health, wealth, relationships] for the trivial but immediate payoff of using an addictive incentive.
While escaping an addictive trap is much more diffic...
Volition is the faculty that separates humans from more primitive creatures. The actions of animals and young children are determined by cause-and-effect principles in the same way that the principles of hydrodynamics determine the watercourse way. Indeed, it is your ability to understand and manipulate the cause-and-effect principles that determine how you react to the things that happen that enables you to intentionally influence the course of events.
While determinism may seem incompatible with the idea that some humans have the power to exercise their will; in fact it is the appreciation of the pertinent cause-and-effect principles that makes the exercise of will possible.
Needless to say, the point of exercising your will rather than yielding in the direction of least resistance is that the former produces better outcomes. As far as we know, you get one shot at life, and it would be a shame to miss out on what you really want because you wasted your time chasing the trivial payoff...
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 legal drug!
One day last week I was thinking about sugar. I think about sugar often as I am addicted to the effect that sugar has on my emotional well-being. One of the reasons that I decided to specialise as a personal coach in weight loss and management is because I wanted to help those people, like myself, that have had struggles with losing weight and keeping it off in the long-term. We all seem to have an Achilles heel when it comes to our ‘go-to’ comfort food. My own personal favourite has, for about 26 years, been chocolate; the cheaper kinds preferably, like Cadbury’s Dairy Milk. When I have feelings that I don’t want to deal with, when I’m happy or sad, chocolate is my food of choice. Of course, the sane and rational part of me and especially the coach in me, knows that this is not the best choice for me and I know, you too, dear readers, understand this because we gain weight. When I was younger I could get away with it, but I am in my mid-f...
DANGERS OF PERFORMANCE-ENHANCING DRUGS
By: Lisa Moretti
April 18, 2013
!-->The lure of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) is seductive; everyone wants to find that special “something” that gives them the competitive edge. But that minute of glory can come at a huge price. We’ve seen athletes like Lance Armstrong, Marion Jones and Roger Clemens publicly shamed and stripped of their glory for their use of PEDs. But the darker side of drugs and doping is that those secret “sauces” are devastating to the body and some are even life threatening.
Catching Bodies Downstream
We are astounded when athletes (both professional and amateur) die young from diseases like kidney or heart failure or liver atrophy. Few people connect the dots to realize that PEDs overtax the body to the point where it gives out early. For those who don’t die, they can be left lingering in a lifetime of dialysis, cancers, pain and bodily breakdown. Along with the physical deva...
This method of colon cleansing is amazing because it allows the client to be in control and have total privacy. You can bring someone/assitance if need help getting on the system, or if you choose to have someone holding your hand. It's painless and the ambiance is very inviting meant to relax you. Once you allow yourself to concour your fears and do it for the 1st time you will be blown away. It's nothing like the demonstration you will get from the person that has never experienced it. Ask someone that has had a colon cleanse and it's always posititve! Ask the opposite and you will be laughing and joking about it forever.
Colon Cleansing and the understanding of it comes with education/ the importance of it. The benefits of cleansing the body/colon specifically results in a never ending list of benefits. People all over the world suffer with digestive issues and live everyday lives like it's healthy. The subject of defecating is not shared at any given time unless it's a joke but yet s...
Tips to help prevent holiday overeating
1. Never go to the table hungry - you won't "save" calories by skipping breakfast because you are bond to eat more at the holiday meal
2. If it is served buffet style, check out whole selection before putting anything on your ate - give yourself time to "decide" what you want to eat. Stand away from the table,
3. If served "family style" start with salad and veggies than protein, leaving high fat, calorie dense food selections 2nd round of choices. Less likely to over indulge if you have already taken the edge off hunger.
4 . After you have eaten put a mint or gum in your mouth
5. Drink lots of water, always have a glass nearby
6. Avoid alcohol it adds empty calories and will disinhibit your sense of control
7. Remind yourself that the taste is momentary give yourself 5 minutes and a few deep breaths before going for 2nds or sugary desserts.
8. Remind yourself of your goal and that you are stronger than an urge.
Enjoy the people and conv...
What Size is "Normal"?
Cheers to the Swedish Department Store for using mannequins that reflect a size 12 rather than the emaciated, androgynous ones in many of the popular places young people shop in this country http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2299498/Swedish-department-store-hl-ns-reignites-body-image-debate-photo-normal-sized-mannequins-goes-global.html. What is normal? According to Pamela Peek, MD MPH, FACP a worldwide respected speaker on the topics says:
To answer this question, let’s look at some facts. The average starlet is wearing a size 2 or 4 which is the sample size designers are making presently. Today, the average American woman is 5’4?, has a waist size of 34-35 inches and weighs between 140-150 lbs, with a dress size of 12-14. Fifty years ago, the average woman was 5’3-4? with a waist size of approximately 24-25?, she weighed about 120 lbs and wore a size 8. Curiously, over the past twenty years, fashion model sizes have dropped from a size ...
We're talking about fat here. (Although I know what you're thinking, and I totally agree with you - brown chocolate is better than white chocolate too.)
Did you know you have two kinds of fat: white fat and brown fat? The brown fat is the good kind. It's like baby fat, and it burns serious calories. Just 3 ounces can burn several hundred calories a day.
I read an article that said that for awhile scientists thought only babies and small mammals had brown fat. Then they discovered adults had it - females had more than males. An example of where to find brown fat left me a little miffed, though! The article said that it was in "an area extending from the front of the neck to the chest."
So I placed my palm on the front of my neck. Immediately I noticed that half my palm was also on my chest. Hmm. Not much fat there.
From what I've read you can't turn white fat to brown fat, but baby fat cells get a chance to "choose" to be white or brown. We have more brown cells here and there (we'r...
