How to Deal with Difficult Situations and People

Some words of wisdom from the I Ching by Brian Browne Walker:

 

Arriving at the correct solution to a difficult situation requires a receptivity to inner truth.
Unless we are willing to put aside the strong emotions of our egos and devote ourselves to discovering what is right, there can be no hope of progress at this time.  Help only comes when we invite it with a sincere and innocent attitude.

The I Ching teaches a simple but effective method of influencing difficult people and arduous situations.  It advises us first to lay aside our prejudices – our feelings of being wounded, angry or in the right – and second to seek to understand the positions of others and the lesson that the Sage is teaching us with the situation. Even when another is truly out of line, it is only by accepting this and remaining balanced that you make it possible for positive change to occur.  Gentleness and understanding create in others an unconscious willingness to be led.

The superior person therefore avoids the use of anger and force in trying times, knowing that they only prolong conflict.  It is far wiser to accept that each experience we have is necessary for us to learn something about ourselves and about the higher laws of life.  The greatest openings come when we meet difficulty with acceptance, gentleness and a desire to understand the lesson underneath.

It is a fact of life that times of decrease come upon us; our resources are limited, difficulty surrounds us and our egos generate angry and unhappy emotions.  Nonetheless, such times are good for us.  If we respond to them by quieting our egos and turning sincerely to the Higher Power for help, we emerge from the period of decrease stronger, healthier and wiser.

The Carpenter

Dragonfly - A Magical Creation

 

from a dear friend:

 

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire.  He told his employer contractor of his plans to leave the house-building business and live a more leisurely life with his wife enjoying his extended family.  He would miss the paycheck, but he needed to retire.  They could get by.

The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favour. The carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work.   He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials.  It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career.

When the carpenter finished his work the employer came to inspect the house.  He handed the front-door key to the carpenter. ” This is your house,” he said, “my gift to you.”   The carpenter was shocked!  What a shame!  If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently.

So it is with us.  We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building.  Then with shock we realize we have to live in the house we have built.  If we could do it over, we’d do it much differently.  But we cannot go back.

You are the carpenter.  Each day you hammer a nail, place a board, erect a wall.  “Life is a do-it-yourself project,” someone has said.  Your attitudes and the choices you make today, build the “house” you live in tomorrow.
Build wisely!

 

Remember…

Work like you don’t need the money.



Love like you’ve never been hurt.

 

Dance like nobody is watching

“He who has health has hope, he who has hope has everything.”

 

“Know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”

 

Facts:

8
out of 10 Americans over 25 are obese or overweight

1 out of every 2 Americans die from Heart Disease, Cancer, or Stroke
Being overweight significantly increases this risk

 

USA Obesity Rates Reach Epidemic Proportions

The US ranks #1 in Obesity in the world
78% of American’s do not meet the basic activity level recommendations
Obesity is the #2 cause of preventable death in the United States
Being overweight or obese increases the risk of:  Breast cancer, Coronary heart disease, Type II diabetes, Sleep apnea, Gallbladder disease, Osteoarthritis, Colon cancer, Hypertension and Stroke


Total Prevalence of Diabetes

25.8 million children and adults in the United States – 8.3% of the US has diabetes – that’s more people than the entire state of Texas!
79 million people prediabetes
1 out of 3 Americans at high risk for type II diabetes


Current trends in the United States:


The United States spends over 15 cents out of every dollar of its GNP on Health Care
40 million Americans are 65 or older and 72 million will be 65 by 2030
89 million will be 65 by 2050, more than double our current senior population

 

Key Information to Take Effective Action:

  • YOU are the actual solution – YOU control your own destiny.
  • Treating symptoms in a world of cause and effect is insanity, it does not work; it’s like putting a band aid on an open artery.
  • Principles dictate every outcome in your life, you need to understand the principles behind disease and true health.
  • To succeed in being healthy you must be totally responsible, committed and do what it takes to create true health in your body every day.


People are living longer and the reality is that you will too.  What level of health do you want for your life?  Do you want to experience the pain and cost of poor health, medical care, surgery and debilitating old age or the joy of increased energy, vitality, flexibility and good health?


It’s simple, QUALITY IN = QUALITY OUT!

1)   Your body and brain is 70% water, drink lots of water.

2)   Go Green!  Eat 70% of your daily meals of alkaline, water rich foods, veggies, salads, fruits & live food that have a lot of water content. 

3)   Exercise and lose weight – start rebounding on a mini-trampoline

4)   Eat anything you want once a week – as a reward for eating healthy every day have one free meal once a week.

 

Why you want to be healthy determines everything you do.  Your reason why has to compel you to follow healthy principles and take action.  You must reprogram your mind and subconscious and empower yourself to live a healthy lifestyle.

Yes, you must develop self-discipline, definite values and clear goals and take consistent action every day.  You can do it! 

We can reverse these trends by eating nutritious foods and exercising.
Live long & prosper!

Grooming for Greatness

Good Grooming

 

Grooming for greatness starts as soon as possible.
Follow the natural 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:
Meditation
Health
Communication
Relationships
Career

Meditation:
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.

Recent Study at Harvard – Meditation practice can help to increase brain function, reduce the effects of aging on the brain and improve concentration and memory – Dr. Sara Lazar.

A growing body of research suggests that meditation can significantly enhance 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.  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.

Workplace Results:
Improved creativity, productivity and performance.
Greater job satisfaction and reduced turnover.

Being Healthy:
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 will promote 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.

In addition to eating healthy and drinking lots of water on a daily basis, exercise is 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.

Communication:
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.

In addition communication is 7% words, 48% tone and 55% body language.  Most people focus on the word which is the least accurate form of communication.  Make sure that you focus on the tone and body language to determine the congruency of a person’s communication, including yours.

People have different love strategies.  There are five basic types:
Words and Affirmations
Quality Time
Acts of Service
Gifts
Physical Touch

It is important that you can express your love to another person in a way that they can understand and acknowledge.  Make sure you know which love language is primary for your spouse, partner, family member and friend.
Communication, acknowledgement and love languages are key to successful relationships.

These same communication skills will strongly effect your success in your career and it business.

“The quality of my life is directly related to the quality of my communication with myself and with others.”
