 Baby:
Im starting to feel Kason all hours of the day….Some woman complain of the kicking, I guess after going through losses & 2 years of ttc this little one I am happy to say I LOVE EVERY minute of his kicking…It reassures me that everything is okay in there… I can see the outline of his head and butt at times… So amazing, I remember these times with my dd & my ds… Truly a blessing…. Patiently waiting for the day this little boy makes his first appearance. This is the first pregnancy where I am not rushing it to go by, I am enjoying to the fullest bc I feel like this is the only time I will ever have that he is all mine to myself. The bond between a mother and her unborn child is truly a miracle.. I feel blessed more and more everyday!

I have to say I believe that women are the most blessed beings on the planet to be able to have this experience.
We are all envious!

Couldn’t you tell in the video that even though it was his first time hearing his mommy.. he knew…
He knew immediately who it was.  You could see the recognition in his eyes.
He was not startled.
He was not confused as to this new sound.
It almost looked as if he was hearing and old friend after months of being away.
How powerful is that!

World renowned self-help mogul Tony Robbins firewalk challenge is responsible for injuring 21 people during his Unleash The Power Within Event this week.
Walking across hot coals on lanes measuring 10 feet long and heated to between 1,200 to 2,000 degrees provides attendees an opportunity to “understand that there is absolutely nothing you can’t overcome,” according to the motivational speaker’s website.

Robbins Research International said in a written statement that 6,000 attendees of the event walked across the coals Thursday.
Organizers had an “open burn permit” and medical staff at the event, and there was also a fire inspector on the scene, Williams said.
“Once they (the medical staff) became overwhelmed, our inspector called for us,” Williams said.
Witness Jonathan Correll told the San Jose Mercury News that he “heard wails of pain, screams of agony.”
Tony Robbins Firewalk

Tony Robbins’ fire walk experiences goes wrong; 21 burned on hot coals
SAN JOSE, CALIF. — He’s known as one of the top motivational speakers in the the world. But Tony Robbins’ fire walk experience didn’t go so well for some this week, resulting in almost two dozens injuries. They trusted Robbins to walk over hot coals …
www.clarionledger.com

“I heard wails of pain, screams of agony,” witness Jonathan Correll told the Mercury News. “It was people seriously hurting, like they were being tortured. … First one person, then a couple minutes later another one, and there was just a line of people walking on that fire. It was just bizarre, man.”

Tony Robbins’ firewalk with me: 21 hurt on hot coals
Tony Robbins suggested they “unleash the power within,” but for 21 people who burned their feet walking over hot coals, it was more about cooling their heels in a fountain. Police treated the nearly two dozen people for burns to their feet on Thursday …
www.globalpost.com

On his website, Robbins suggests the “Firewalk Experience” is step 1 of his “four steps to transformation.”
“Once you start doing the impossible (or at least what you thought was impossible), you can conquer the other fires of your life with ease,” the website says.
There are those who succeeded in San Jose, the Mercury News reported.
Yet, others crossed the coals unscathed at first, but then dipped their feet in a nearby fountain after blisters started to appear.
Some people went to their hotel rooms and called 9-1-1.
“It seemed abnormal that so many got hurt,” one witness told

I just hope that this does not turn people away from giving this a try.  I have never personally tried this but I can imagine how powerful you must feel after you have accomplished something like this.

Keep in mind that there were over 6000 people there.  21 out of 6000 aint to bad.  Especially considering he has been doing this for over 30 years.

Has any of you ever tried the firewalk experience with Anthony Robbins?

Would you ever try it?

Do you think this will hurt Tony’s reputation at all or will he bounce right back after something like this?

Would love to hear your thoughts.

Self-esteem building activities should NOT be a chore!
One of the most important habits you can adapt to your lifestyle and most of us do not even bother to try and build this skill.
There are tons of courses you can take, like the world famous GET THE EDGE by Anthony Robbins, that can teach you all about building your self-esteem in 8-hour four day workshops that are fantastic.
But lets be honest.
The average person cannot afford what some of these events will run you.
But the easiest and most effective self esteem building activity you CAN learn and start using today is developing your own inner dialogue

Developing self esteem is easy when you change how you talk to yourself.  Many times we go on “auto-pilot” and let our inner talk berate us for no real reason.  Instead, simply…
Take charge of your self talk and guide it into thinking positive thoughts and you’ll be surprised at how good you start feeling about yourself.

The Philadelphia Eagles were down by 21 with 7 minutes left in the final quarter of the game against the New York Giants.  This is one of the best comeback videos in sports history!
Most people would start to throw in the 2nd and third string players and call this game a wash.

 
But this goes to show you that even when the odds are stacked against you, if you decide not to quit, you can find out what you are truly capable of.
 
The game is not over until YOU decide to quit!
Always keep pushing until you have absolutely NOTHING left!
This is how legends are made!

You try hard at everything you do.  It seems like you are putting in more effort than results.

English: A hamster and a hamster wheel
hamster and his wheel (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

If feels as though you are no longer being entertained by watching that cute little hamster running on the wheel ….
Because now YOU are the hamster…. and you feel like you are getting nowhere fast.
What is the solution? The common misconception would have you believe that you are not smart enough.  That somewhere along the line you did not get enough training or schooling in what you are trying to accomplish.
So you tell yourself this is just what you have to expect.
But this rarely the case…. KEEP READING

The one shift that changed everything

That period of personal development lead to many changes in thinking, but the particular one I look back on as being the “change that brought about all other changes” was realizing I was approaching life the same way perhaps 95% (give or take) of the population does, I was playing “not to lose” rather than “playing to win.”
As soon as I realized that distinction, I knew that any life played on defense could never lead to victory. I would have to consciously decide to pro-actively go after what I wanted and “make” things happen rather than sitting back hopingthings would happen. I took personal responsibility for my life and decided I was either going to “make it big or die trying.”

 
The mindset you have going in will determine the type of results you are getting.
Adopt a winners mindset and there is no choice but for you to start winning consistently!born to win

Most people are aware of the term “Hater”.  But if you are not here are a few definitions from  the URBAN DICTIONARY   pissed off hater pic

1.A person that simply cannot be happy for another person’s success. So rather than be happy they make a point of exposing a flaw in that person.Hating, the result of being a hater, is not exactly jealousy. The hater doesnt really want to be the person he or she hates, rather the hater wants to knock somelse down a notch.
Susan: You know, Kevin from accounting is doing very well. He just bought a house in a very nice part of town.Jane (hater): If he is doing so well why does he drive that ’89
Taurus?
2.  A person who feels anger and/or jealousy for someone who has succeeded in something they have worked hard for. A being who speaks badly,and/or takes negative actions in attempt to create problems for a successful person.
3.A label applied to people who are more negative than positive when discussing another person. It most commonly refers to individuals whose negativity is so extreme that it is all-consuming. However, there are various levels and forms of being a hater, ranging from completely dismissing any positive traits or actions, to merely painting a less than flattering picture by using words with negative connotations. Hating is often attributed to jealousy, but just as often, it seems to stem from some other source.
Person A: Ben Gordon is one of the best clutch scorers in the league! Person B: Gordon is an impressive scorer, but he’s still a role player.
Still not clear?  Maybe Katt Williams can explain it to you.

WARNING: Contains Explicit Language – Totally necessary though

Katt Williams on Haters – Who are they and how do we piss them off?

 

[jwplayer config=”Custom Player” mediaid=”1910″]
Summary:  Basically someone who is angered by your success.
How can this apply to you?
The strategy I am about to teach you should be used if you are:
  • Angry and looking to get revenge on anyone
  • In the mood to piss someone off
  • Looking to prove nay-sayers wrong
  • About to go to some sort of reunion
  • Currently unemployed from being fired
  • Having your home foreclosed
  • and so much more

The best way to achieve any of these things or something similar is simply become successful. Traditional “methods” of getting back at someone may feel good at first but once it is all over, you realize you actually do not feel any better about the whole situation. The main goal is just to feel better, right? Well if you are a success not only will you get the self gratification of anything from the above list but you will also have improved your life and hopefully made a lasting change. Here is the short version of the well thought out list from A Daring Adventure

10 Things Successful People Do That Make Them Successful

1. They Don’t Fear Fear

2. They Reframe

3. They Align With Their Core Values

4. They Ask Good Questions And Listen Well

5. They Delegate Well & Focus On What They Are Best At

6. They Are Tenacious

7. They Put Off Immediate Gratification

8. They Don’t Worry About Work/Life Balance

9. The Are Cool With Failing

People who say that you cannot buy happiness are either clinically depressed or they are trying to keep all the goodness to themselves.
SELFISH BASTARDS!
When you have lots of money you will still have problems…. they are just the types of problems most of us would be glad to have  like:laying by the pool to buy happiness

  • Trying decide between Boca Raton or Europe for a weekend getaway
  • Whether to drive the Jag or the Ferrari because of parking at the restuarant
  • If you should send your kids to Harvard business school or Princeton

 
I, for one, would love to have these kinds of problems.
The problem is we are shopping in the wrong places when attempt to “buy” happiness:

The Rich Know How to Buy Happiness (Do You?)

In the modern $1.4-trillion luxury economy, bling is out, and high-priced adventures are in.
So says a new report from the consultants at BCG, which explores the lifestyle habits of the world’s wealthy based on interviews with roughly 1,000 affluent individuals. Cartier jewelry, Hermes handbags, and Tourneau watches are being eclipsed by exclusive getaways to the Maldives and helicopter skiing vacations in Alaska (which, in case you’re interested, you can book for about$5,750-a-person, all inclusive). Spending on those sorts of mind-bendingly expensive experiences now accounts for more than half of the luxury market and is growing more than 50 percent faster than sales of luxury goods.

Let’s face it, most all of us could benefit from being more self-confident in one area of our lives or another.
The biggest one that most of us have trouble with is our appearance.
But you are not alone!
A recent studies has shown that a lack of confidence in the way we look actually starts at a very young age.
 

One in four females aged between 11 and 17 are weighed down by pressure to conform to an ‘ideal notion’ of how they should look, a survey suggests.
Almost half of the girls described themselves as ‘average’ and ‘ordinary’ with a further 10 per cent feeling ‘plain’, ‘unattractive’ and ‘ugly’, according to the research
The widespread lack of physical confidence has led to girls spending an average of 42 minutes a day working on their appearance, choosing outfits and applying make-up – almost as much time as they spend doing homework.
More than half of the girls studied said they would be happier if they were more physically attractive.

So what can you do about it?
I am glad that you asked!
It really is not that hard.  Some of these things you may already be doing and not realizing the positive effect it is having on your confidence levels.
Most of these tips will increase your self-confidence without any real extra effort at all.
Tips to improve self-confidence
Just make them a habit.  Keep the list near you.  Put it in a place where you can read it every morning and it will stay in your awareness.
You will find that you start to do these things automatically.
That is when you should really start getting excited – when positive change is effortless!
 

10 tips to increase self-confidence

1. Dress Sharp
Although clothes don’t make the man, they certainly affect the way he feels about himself. No one is more conscious of your physical appearance than you are. When you don’t look good, it changes the way you carry yourself and interact with other people. Use this to your advantage by taking care of your personal appearance. In most cases, significant improvements can be made by bathing and shaving frequently, wearing clean clothes, and being cognizant of the latest styles.
This doesn’t mean you need to spend a lot on clothes. One great rule to follow is “spend twice as much, buy half as much”. Rather than buying a bunch of cheap clothes, buy half as many select, high quality items. In long run this decreases spending because expensive clothes wear out less easily and stay in style longer than cheap clothes. Buying less also helps reduce the clutter in your closet.
2. Walk Faster
One of the easiest ways to tell how a person feels about herself is to examine her walk. Is it slow? tired? painful? Or is it energetic and purposeful? People with confidence walk quickly. They have places to go, people to see, and important work to do. Even if you aren’t in a hurry, you can increase your self confidence by putting some pep in your step. Walking 25% faster will make to you look and feel more important.
3. Good Posture
Similarly, the way a person carries herself tells a story. People with slumped shoulders and lethargic movements display a lack of self confidence. They aren’t enthusiastic about what they’re doing and they don’t consider themselves important. By practicing good posture, you’ll automatically feel more confident. Stand up straight, keep your head up, and make eye contact. You’ll make a positive impression on others and instantly feel more alert and empowered.
…continue to entire list

 
You should start to feel the difference and a very noticeable difference in you self-confidence within days and some . . . within minutes!
