When you want to re-brand yourself the first thing you look at is your body particularly your waist.
So have you heard of the new ab training technique called a Core Activation Sequence yet?
To be honest I hadn’t either, until just the other day when my friend Tyler introduced me to the brilliant Dr. James Vegher.
Dr. Vegher originally designed these unique exercises to help patients with chronic neck and back pain and Tyler (who was a patient of his) ended up discovering that they worked even better for quickly shrinking your waistline, building more core strength and helping you get better results from your workouts.
It’s actually a pretty CRAZY story that you should check out…
- YOU Have an unsightly pouch belly or ugly beer gut that you can’t seem to get rid of
- YOU have back, neck, shoulder or hip pain and can’t seem to find a way to make it stop
- YOU have terrible posture and nothing seems to help
- YOU are a personal trainer or avid fitness fan looking for the most cutting edge ab training info on the planet
- YOU desperately want to see toned or even 6-pack abs but don’t know where to start
- YOU are interested in learning what a Core Activation Sequence is and what it can do for you
When life takes a different turn to what you had planned, you will sometimes find it difficult to bounce back. Your mind starts to wonder ‘why is this happening’ especially if this situation had happened previously.
You fail to recognize that these are experiences, that failure is life’s way of saying you need to pay attention to certain things e.g improve your skills, your attitude or some other aspect of your life.
The best way to bounce back is to see things for what it is.
So you lost your job, but you did not like the job in the first place. When you got the job opportunity instead of starting off observing the environment and learning all you can, you became obsessed with pleasing people. You got involved in the office politics and now you drag yourself to get up to go to the office. You now need to start over. Find a job that you are passionate about. Something, that at the end of the day you feel a sense of accomplishment. Observation and learning is key in the probationary stage. Do not rush to please the boss or manager, and be careful of people who are too nice to you. The knowledge you acquire from observing and learning will move you quickly through the ranks.
If you were bypassed for a position take this opportunity to re-brand yourself. Have a documented approach to your re-branding. Find ways to develop yourself for the position you want. Get a Life Coach and one or two mentors. Add new circles of influence. Review your dress code. Lose or put on weight if you have to.
If you are trying to bounce back from a relationship realize that there is no love lost. You were always loved and will always be loved. You cannot love someone for whatever number of years and then say I no longer love you. Was that really true love in the first place? Find a Life Coach and transform yourself. Join new groups. Find your true purpose. The more you achieve celebrate your achievements.
You have to be truly committed to transforming. Some people may want to take the easy way out, but know this you must put effort into anything you want to achieve.
Bouncing back is like being on a trampoline the lower you fall the higher you get back up.
The best way to bounce back is to see things as they are, observe and learn and use this knowledge to transform yourself and guide you to the next stage of your life.

Sometimes it is really difficult to find the positive side of a challenge confronting us. When dealing with adversity – a career setback, the ending of a long-time relationship or the illness of a child – it’s hard to believe there is a sunny side or a silver lining to this experience. But history is full of people who found possibilities through adversity. Reflecting on some of their achievements can remind us to look for opportunities when dealing with challenges..
If a young Spanish soccer star had not been injured seriously in a car accident and spent months recuperating in the hospital, he likely would not have discovered his musical side. The world might have missed the beautiful voice of Julio Iglesias.
McDonalds and the “golden arches” would not exist today if Ray Kroc’s several ventures had not ended in bankruptcy prior to his opportune meeting the McDonald brothers. History has it that he purchased a little hamburger stand that later became the world’s preeminent fast food franchise.
Had Walt Disney not failed in his initial dreams to the point of bankruptcy, the magic of the Magic Kingdom and the hundreds of Disney related businesses would not exist today.
According to Napoleon Hill – “Every adversity, every failure, and every heartache, carries with it the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.”
It’s the tough to believe, but sometimes we are taught lessons that will benefit us. You must allow yourself to be open to what life is teaching you and apply it later when the opportunity presents itself.
Many challenges were not insurmountable to begin with, they only needed a little creativity or fortitude and a gentle nudge from the creative side in you. Allowing yourself to have positive and affirming outlook sometimes seems contrary to what is expected of us today. We are taught to be humble lest we seem too full of ourselves. Modesty gets in the way and we are expected to play down our strengths and play up our weaknesses to help us fit in.
You have to maintain the attitude and mindset of a creative problem solver and learn to develop opportunity awareness. Look for the possible benefits and opportunities hidden even in adversity or hardship. Learn to visualize any negative situation as an opportunity for metamorphosis, like a caterpillar changing into a butterfly. Sometimes creativity calls for looking at a combination of things that you had not thought of previously.
With the help of inspirational quotes from people like McDonalds, Disney and MacGyver, allow yourself to find the opportunity or silver lining even in the midst of challenges or tragedy.

We were brought up and told you have to get a good education to get a good job. If you are a man this helps you support your family. If you are a woman this helps contribute to the family’s budget.
Most people wanted a government job because it was easier and others opt for jobs in the private sector. The education system never hinted at having your own business. Now job life is so stressful for some people that they want out. They want freedom to live a better life, freedom to have more time for family and do the things that they are really passionate about.
There are so many opportunities to have the life that we want, but we prefer to stick with the job, after all it provides security and do not forget the pension. So who said it was secure when everyday you hear of job cuts, even in the government and what about the pension, by the time you are ready to leave you can barely live on the pension.
Having your own business is not for everyone, someone has to do the work, but if, just if you have it in you to run your own business would you give it a shot? I bet a lot of people would say no. You see we are people who like to stay with what we are familiar with. We afraid to go there, afraid to fail – what if something goes wrong? How am I going to live? How am I going to take care of my family? I am accustom to getting paid whether I work or not. Little do we know that there are people who are their own bosses, no employees and do not have to worry about money. Check out these people below – they are their own boss, no employees and the money is flowing.
Which would you prefer the crystal plaque or the freedom to live the life that you want? Need help to decide – email me – firstname.lastname@example.org

Diet Pills: Do They Really Work? from HealthyWomen.org’s Obesity Health Center
Some do, some don’t—and it’s important to understand the difference. Currently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved three drugs to aid long-term weight loss. They are: orlistat (Xenical and Alli), lorcaserin (Belviq) and phentermine-topiramate (Qsymia).
There also are many over-the-counter appetite suppressants and other drugs and supplements that promise rapid weight loss, but they have not proven effective for lasting weight loss, and some can cause potentially dangerous side effects.
The cornerstone of successful weight loss involves lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthful, high-fiber, lower-calorie diet, being physically active and modifying negative behaviors. Numerous studies prove the health dangers of excess pounds, so it’s important to try to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
If you are among the nearly 70 percent of U.S. adults age 20 and older who are overweight or obese, the prescription weight-loss medications may help you get to a healthier weight. However, they won’t help everyone. Weight loss is a serious, long-term endeavor. Always discuss your options with your health care provider or consult a registered dietitian.
No weight-loss medications should be used if you’re pregnant or trying to become pregnant. Some medications may be restricted if you are less than 18 years old or have certain medical conditions. Like most medications, weight-loss medications have potential side effects. None of the long-term weight-loss drugs is considered high risk for developing a drug dependence, but you should take care if you have a history of drug or alcohol addiction.
Here’s a primer on weight-loss medications:
Orlistat works by preventing your body from absorbing about one-third of the fat you eat. It can interfere with the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, so you should take a multivitamin while taking orlistat. It can cause diarrhea, stomach pain, gas and other gastrointestinal symptoms. These symptoms are usually mild and temporary but may be worse if you eat high-fat foods. In rare cases, orlistat may cause liver damage, so stop taking the drug and contact your health care professional if you notice any symptoms of liver problems, such as dark urine or yellowish eyes or skin. Xenical is the prescription version of orlistat, approved for adults and children 12 and older. Alli is the lower-dose over-the-counter orlistat. It is not approved for children. Do not take orlistat while taking cyclosporine.
Lorcaserin affects the chemicals in your brain that help decrease your appetite and make you feel full, so you eat less. It does not work for all people, so if you do not lose 5 percent of your weight within 12 weeks of starting the drug, the medication may not work for you, and you should talk with your health care professional about other options. Side effects of lorcaserin may include headaches, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, dry mouth, cough and constipation. If you are also taking an SSRI antidepressant or MAOI, ask your health care professional about the risk of serotonin syndrome.
Phentermine-topiramate combines two FDA-approved drugs. The phentermine suppresses appetite, but used alone, it is only approved for two weeks. By combining a lower dosage of phentermine with extended-release topiramate, the drug has been shown to be safe for up to two years. The medication comes in three doses: starting dose, recommended dose and higher dose. Similar to lorcaserin, it is not effective for everyone, so if you have not lost at least 5 percent of your body weight after 12 weeks on the higher dose of phentermine-topiramate, talk to your health care professional about other options. Common side effects may include tingling hands and feet, dizziness, changes in taste, trouble sleeping, constipation and dry mouth. Rare side effects may include allergic reactions, memory or mood problems, suicidal thoughts, vision problems and kidney stones. It is not recommended if you have an overactive thyroid gland, glaucoma or have recently taken an MAOI antidepressant (though it was safely tested with other antidepressants).
There also are several over-the-counter FDA-approved appetite suppressants that affect the brain chemicals that regulate your appetite. They include:
These medications have the potential for abuse and are only FDA-approved for short-term use of up to 12 weeks, though some health care professionals may prescribe them for longer “off-label” use. Side effects can include dry mouth, difficulty sleeping, dizziness, headache, nervousness, restlessness, upset stomach and diarrhea or constipation. Severe side effects may include chest pain, fainting, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, confusion and swelling in your ankles or feet. You should not take appetite suppressants if you have heart disease, high blood pressure, overactive thyroid gland or glaucoma.
These appetite suppressants, along with other over-the-counter remedies like diuretics and supplements, have not been found to be effective long term and some have been linked to serious side effects.
Some issues to think about before considering a weight loss medication:
Your degree of overweight: weight loss medications are usually prescribed for people with a body mass index (BMI) over 27 who have additional complications, such as diabetes; or for those with BMIs over 30 without complications. BMI is a measure of weight status: people with BMIs from 25 to 29.9 are considered overweight; those with BMIs of 30 and above are considered obese.
Your degree of success with other weight loss programs or methods.
Your ability to comply with taking the medications and making long-term lifestyle changes.

It’s in your best interest as a manager to ensure that your team is productive, but despite your good intentions, there are plenty of ways managers unintentionally stifle the successful workplace environment you’re striving to foster. Here are a few common ways your efforts to be a supportive manager may actually hinder your team’s productivity potential.
1. You don’t scrutinize meeting agendas. Though ensuring you have a relationship with the people you report to is important (nearly 55% of respondents to a Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Employee Job Satisfaction and Engagement survey said it was a key factor in the level of engagement they feel with their jobs), meetings aren’t the way to foster a connection among employees. To facilitate productivity, all meetings should have one defining purpose: to move further toward a defined and desired result.
Before a meeting, ask yourself:
(1) Is there an agenda?
(2) Does each item on the agenda have a defined and specific outcome that will lead to either continued momentum, and/or completion?
(3) Does each agenda item specify the amount of time and attention it will receive?
(4) Does each agenda item have an “owner” assigned?
(5) Are all the people who need to be involved in an agenda item available?
(6) Does everyone on the invite have a “place” on the agenda?
(7) Does the meeting end time coincide with the amount of time each agenda item will receive?
Lead by example, and encourage your staff to get in the habit of strategically scrutinizing every meeting for these criteria as well. If every question above can’t be answered in the affirmative, consider alternative ways to communicate.
2. You force your way. Taking a “hands off” approach isn’t all there is to delegating; you must also be mindful about allowing employees to have a voice. “It isn’t about you, it is about the work,” says Dr. Jené Kapela, a leadership coach, consultant, and the founder of Jené Kapela Leadership Solutions. “Don’t be concerned that things get done your way —just that they get done well. Your staff members will do a better job if they can do things in a way that makes sense to them.” With that in mind, however, she says you’ll need to create opportunities for those discussions to take place—and keep an open mind about any approach.
3. You don’t confirm communication. Miscommunications usually aren’t revealed until a mistake occurs in the midst of a project, or until an employee hits a “roadblock” that causes him or her to seek clarification. By that time, countless hours of what could have been productive time are lost. To eliminate potential miscommunication, Mark Goulston, management consultant and author of six best-selling books including Just Listen suggests tweaking your language when you give direction. “Instead of asking ‘Do you have any questions?’ replace it with a phrase like ‘So that we are clear, please tell me what I have asked you to do, by when and why it’s important to what we are trying to achieve,’” says Goulston. Not only will repeating the information help the employee begin to process the task and reveal miscommunication before it’s problematic, you’ll gradually gain a better understanding of how to communicate effectively with the different personalities on your team.
4. You do more than one thing at a time. Though multitasking may seem like the only way to handle a demanding workload, it’s ineffective in terms of maximizing productivity. “Constant multitasking makes us more prone to mistakes, more likely to miss important information and cues, and less likely to retain information in working memory—which impairs problem solving and creativity,” says Maura Thomas, author of Personal Productivity Secrets. Further, she points out that it can lead to job unhappiness and undue stress among your staff. “In multitasking environments, employees work in reactive mode all day long; it prevents them from being proactive, and robs them of the opportunity to assess their overall workload and choose what to work on next.”
To encourage more single-task focus, remember that the team looks to you for the “right” behavior. Don’t take your smartphone into meetings, don’t check emails while you’re on conference calls, and establish a protocol for how “urgent” requests for information are to be handled. For example, you may instill a policy that when urgent needs arise, colleagues visit one another in person, versus sending urgent emails that make it impossible to temporarily disconnect from online distractions.

If you are health conscious you need to be aware of this:
Nutrition Label Changes: What Would They Mean? from HealthyWomen.org’s Diet & Nutrition area
For the first time in 20 years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is proposing changes to the way that food nutrition is labeled. The labels were created to help Americans make better decisions about the foods they eat and to encourage healthy diets. If adopted, the new labels, with a new design, would include better explanations of nutrition science and updated serving sizes. Here’s what you could get from the new labels.
Better understanding of what’s healthy
The new labels involve some changes that make it easier for consumers to understand the nutrition information in relation to a healthy total daily diet. For example, the labels would require companies to list “added sugars,” which can decrease the intake of nutrients and increase calorie intake. Updated daily values for nutrients like sodium, dietary fiber and vitamin D would also be included. Potassium and vitamin D amounts would be required on all labels, because they are considered newly important for public health. Finally, the “calories from fat” measurement would be removed. Research has shown that the type of fat is more important than the amount, so just the types of fat (total, saturated and trans) and their amounts will be listed.
More realistic serving sizes
As you probably know, serving sizes can seem pretty arbitrary, and many are a lot less than what people typically eat or drink. For example, you’re probably not going to stop drinking a 20-ounce soda at the 8-ounce mark and call that one serving. The new labels will include serving sizes that reflect how much people typically eat rather than how much they should eat. Packaged foods and drinks that are usually consumed in one sitting will be labeled as a single serving, so the nutrition information is for the entire amount. Some that could be eaten all at once or spread out would include two columns: one for “per serving” and one for “per package.” This can give people a better picture of how many calories they’re taking in.
The proposed changes would make the serving size and amount of calories on the label more prominent in big, bold text toward the top of the label. The Percent Daily Value measurement would be moved to the left of the label so consumers would read it first. The footnote about the Percent Daily Value would also be altered to more clearly explain the meaning of this measurement, making it easier for people to judge what’s healthy and what’s not.
The FDA is accepting comments on the proposed changes. If approved, it is not known when the changes will occur. If these proposed changes are made, they could have a significant positive impact on the health issues that many people in America face, like obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
