Grooming for greatness starts the day you are born. Follow the principles for success in all areas of your life at an early age and you will have the best possible foundation strongly in place for the rest of your life.
Keys to a Successful Life:
One of the wisest practices for health, well being and spiritual growth is daily meditation. It improves your mental clarity, creativity and dissolves negative patterns of addiction. Meditation is good for every area of your life and brings harmony, balance and goodness to you.
Meditation practice can increase brain function, reduce the effects of aging on the brain and improve concentration and memory – Dr. Sara Lazar – Harvard Medical School.
A growing body of research suggests meditation significantly enhances your immune system – U of Wisconsin and Harvard in 2003
Long-term meditators – improvements in sleep, blood pressure, calmer heartbeat, better circulation and younger biological and functional ages and they pay significantly less money to doctors – 87% lower heart disease cost.
Meditation allows you to focus on solutions through relaxation and peace of mind. It improves listening, learning and memory skills.
Meditators are superior learners and remember more of what they study.
Improved creativity, productivity and performance.
Greater job satisfaction and reduced turnover.
Health allows you to maximize your potential in all areas of your development. The body and brain is approximately 70% water, so drink lots of water. You need to drink half of your body weight in ozs. per day. For example, if you weigh 160 lbs, divide by 2 = 80 oz’s or 10 – 8oz glasses of water a day. Your body needs the right fuel – 70% green – veggies, salads, fruits and high water content nutrition daily. If you want to live, eat foods that are alive!
Your body thrives on high water content and alkaline foods. Eating nutritious foods and drinking lots of water promotes proper body weight. A dehydrated body retains weight and eating processed foods/fast foods, sugar and soda clogs your digestive system and puts on weight. 8 out of 10 Americans are overweight or obese.
Exercise is also very important. There are many good forms of exercise. The most powerful exercise is rebounding – bouncing on a mini-trampoline. According to NASA, it is the most effective exercise on the planet and astronauts rebound as part of their conditioning program.
Being alive on this planet requires interacting with other people and being an excellent communicator is key to achieving successful relationships. People have different styles of communicating. Some are more visual and fast paced, others are a more auditory and a little slower and speak with more resonance and tone and others are more feeling oriented.
Although we use all of these three forms of communication, you have a primary communication strategy. Practice all three of these styles of communication to be a flexible communicator.
