Flight Plan: The Real Secret of Succcess

By , August 29, 2014

How to achiever more, faster than you ever dreamed possible.

In “Flight Plan,” Brian Tracy reveals what he sees are the real key ingredients that go into accomplishing any long-term, meaningful success. He shares universal principle that have been taught throughout the ages, that all successful people practice.

A flight plan is what pilots file before they begin a journey, any journey, and Brian Tracy uses this analogy to teach us that it is just as necessary in ice, if you want to arrive at any desired destination. A flight plan is what you use to guide you on your journey.

Using the metaphor of an airplane trip on a lengthy journey, Flight Plan shows that the real secret to success is to first figure out your destination, and make the commitment that you will get there – which means before you take off you must decide where you want to go. Secondly, you must take off, and to do that you must identify precisely what you must do, in order to achieve the goals you have set for yourself. It would not be wise to fly a plane if you do not have the skills, so stay close to someone who has them.

Taking off means taking action, and doing it with energy, vigour, enthusiasm and power – in fact at full throttle. You can taxi at half speed down the runway but that will not give you lift-off. So, as soon as you know what to do, DO IT! And thirdly, you must be willing to persist through the inevitable challenges and setbacks that will arise. Nothing worthwhile is ever accomplished without getting better, achieving more, and you do this by constant attention and learning. Continue reading 'Flight Plan: The Real Secret of Succcess'»

4 Keys For Budding Entrepreneurs In Business

By , August 29, 2014

First used in 1723 to emphasize a willingness of the entrepreneur to assume risk and to deal with uncertainty, today the term entrepreneur implies qualities of leadership, initiative and innovation in business. Economist Robert Reich has called team-building, leadership, and management ability essential qualities for the entrepreneur. Some say the entrepreneur is a risk-taker while others consider the entrepreneur a “planner”. I say they must be both, to have ultimate success.

Ultimately the entrepreneur is defined as an individual who organises, develops or operates a business or businesses. Wikipedia says successful entrepreneurs have the ability to lead a business in a positive direction by proper planning, to adapt to changing environments and understand their own strengths and weakness. The entrepreneur is commonly seen as an innovator — a generator of new ideas and business processes. Management skill and strong team building abilities are often perceived as essential leadership attributes for successful entrepreneurs.

Being a leader in de-construction, an entrepreneur is willing and able to convert a new idea or invention into a successful innovation. Creative destruction is largely responsible for long-term economic growth, and entrepreneurs employ what another economist Schumpeter calls “the gale of creative destruction” to replace in whole or in part inferior offerings across markets and or industries, simultaneously creating new products and new business models.

Entrepreneurship, first coined in the 1920’s, is the process of starting a business or instigating a new idea, and we wrote about it in back in 2011 in Entrepreneurs In Business. Continue reading '4 Keys For Budding Entrepreneurs In Business'»

The ADD – ADHD Disaster Today: How Nutrition Helps!

By , August 28, 2014

A few years ago a mother brought her 5-year-old ADHD son to see me during their holidays. He roared in the door, knocked over lamps and proceeded to terrorize my home until we took him out on the balcony. Without his usual Ritalin, which was required for him to attend school, he was impossible to manage. Even the most casual observer would agree that this little boy was acting like something was irritating him, and that his behaviour was more than just naughty. He was behaving as though someone was constantly sticking him with thumb tacks.

His mother told me that he was always calm after his bath, however it started up again at bedtime, and that he usually woke up with a mild bumpy rash over his body. So that led me to suspect that there was something about his clothing and bedding that was irritating him.

Sure enough, we removed his clothes (he didn’t care, he was only 5) and within 30 seconds he calmed down, relaxed and curled up into his mother’s lap and fell asleep. When he woke 15 minutes later, he remained calm and played quietly for the next 40 minutes while I chatted with his mother about making sensible choices, so that they could have a healthier home.

It wasn’t surprising to me that, when she put his clothes back on him just before leaving, within 30 seconds he was yelling, screaming and kicking again. Can you believe it? It’s true . . . And it’s more common than you could imagine.

In cases like this, reactions to soap residues, fabric sensitivities and the chemicals used in the manufacture of certain personal care products are not uncommon. Discovering this could be the difference between needing or not needing Ritalin. I have had other cases of children

The Symbolism of Eagles

By , August 14, 2014

The Eagle

Their fierce portraits stare out from cave paintings crafted by long-forgotten Stone Age masters. The spot on which one landed dictated to the ancient Aztecs the place where they were to build a city. Their steely portraits with hooked beaks, grim eyes and deadly claws have adorned flags that led armies from Rome to Germany into battle, and indeed their key symbol is that of great power and deadly intent.

The eagle also represents spiritual truths and balance, and is seen to form a connection with higher truths, intuition and a creative spirit. It’s symbology combines dignity with grace, power with patience. For some it symbolises the gradual accomplishment of ones life goals, achieved through knowledge, persistence and hard work. For others it epitomises the true qualities of leadershipContinue reading 'The Symbolism of Eagles'»

Neuroscientist Speaks Out: Cholesterol and Fat Myths & Misinformation

By , July 29, 2014

 

“The overall theme of what I’m going to talk about is that we’ve been misled. We have been given mis-information from food and drug company supported research. We’ve also been misled by government-sponsored advice about the foods that we should eat and the drugs that we should take.”

In the video above, neuroscientist David Diamond, PhD explains how he had personally started to suffer from the effects of eating the standard western diet.

The “Heart-Healthy” Low-Fat Advice Was Killing Him

After being diagnosed as being overweight with high cholesterol, high triglycerides and being labeled as a ‘high risk’ for heart disease, David Diamond PhD, decided to follow the standard diet advice that gets the ‘tick of approval’ and was recommended by his doctor. Namely – the ‘Heart Healthy’ Low Fat, low animal product approach – he cut the fat and started exercising.

And that’s when things got even worse . . .

The mainstream advice given to him by his doctors wasn’t working. If anything, it was killing him.

David’s high cholesterol went higher and his triglycerides skyrocketed. His doctor recommended that he start taking drugs to lower his cholesterol, but David didn’t listen. Rather than head to the pharmacy for drugs to lower cholesterol as suggested by his doctor – he instead headed for the library.

Why? Well as a PhD professor – he wanted to learn all he could about cholesterol, obesity and heart health.

What he found was that the areas of heart disease and nutrition are filled with incompetence and massive conflicts of interest.

David discovered that many of the “truths” that are perpetuated by mainstream media and even health professionals, are often completely false.
Prime examples of that are the associations between saturated fat intake, cholesterol and heart disease.

He also uncovers the history of obesity and how doctors knew that reducing carbs could cure obesity a 150 years ago, but how this knowledge got lost along the way.

Check out the video and discover as Dr Diamond did that the low-fat guidelines promoted by the government are a perfect recipe for obesity, diabetes, heart disease and general poor health.

Dr Diamond’s findings have been the same as ours  . . . and that’s what the ‘Eat Savvy’ Diet is about.

Hormonal Imbalance: What Women Need to Know about HRT, the Pill & Hysterectomy

By , July 28, 2014

“HRT can double the risk of breast cancer”… ran the shock news headlines, following a British study reported in The Lancet.

But this wasn’t news to psychotherapist, writer and ‘hormone whistleblower’ Dr Sherrill Sellman.

[This article was initially published in ICON Magazine]

 

A decade ago, as a personal quest, Dr Sellman uncovered hidden truths about synthetic oestrogen since when she has become an impassioned advocate for womens health.

Her book Hormone Heresy and the popular lectures she’s been giving across America, Australia, England and Ireland explode the 40 year old myth that the Pill and HRT are the golden keys to womens welfare.

Quite the contrary, contends Sherrill: synthetic oestrogen may represent the fatted calf of pharmaceutical industries worldwide, but it has devastated womens energy, libido, equilibrium – and our resistance to assorted cancers.

How come, asks Sherrill, the incidence of breast cancer in America has risen three per cent each year since 1980? How is it that 35,000 women a year now contract endometrial cancer, of which synthetic oestrogen is the only known cause? Why are PMS, infertility and miscarriage on the rise and 40 million women reporting low libido? “Approaching a million American women a year have hysterectomies” says Sherrill, “of which 90-95 per cent are medically nonessential. Three-quarters of all hysterectomies are performed on women under 49 who are then catapulted into surgical menopause. Most are offered HRT to reduce hot flushes, joint pains and depression which could safely be addressed by natural methods.

“Hormones” she adds “are natures finely tuned messengers of lifes processes. They are very powerful and we tamper with them at our peril.” That tampering began when the Pill was first prescribed despite five women having died of strokes and heart attacks during the single years pre-marketing trial.

Why Am I SO Tired All The Time?

By , July 22, 2014

Do you find yourself constantly asking “Why am I so tired all the time?

In addition, you have other distinguishing symptoms: You find it hard to think clearly, and you feel like you spend your days slogging thru a vat of waist-deep oatmeal, it just takes way more effort than it should for you to accomplish anything.

Despite feeling tired, you also feel edgy, and your emotions are fragile. You get jittery, jumpy, short-tempered, and often get accused of over-reacting, or blowing things out of proportion. You are emotionally strung-out and unable to cope with conflict and confrontation. Little things upset you more than they should.

On top of all that you startle easily. Something as simple as the phone ringing sends you shooting out of your chair like the house is on fire, heart pounding wildly, and it takes you several minutes to recover and calm down.
 When confronted with stress of any degree, your heart begins to race, your head begins to swim, and you feel as if you are going to have a panic attack. There doesn’t seem to be any middle ground, you are either dead-dog-tired or on “high alert”.

You wonder “Is this is what it feels like to have a nervous breakdown?” After all, your friend with similar symptoms was put on antidepressants . . . PLUS: Continue reading 'Why Am I SO Tired All The Time?'»

Feeding The Hungry Microbiome

By , July 22, 2014

We live in a world of unfolding epidemics; Autism, ADD, asthma, allergies, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, diabetes, coeliac issues … these conditions overlap with each other…and are related by similar underlying causes.” says Dr. Campbell-McBride. In her Cambridge UK clinic she sees hundreds of children labeled with different disease but presenting with similar issues of malnourishment, toxicity and poor digestive health. The health of our digestive system directly impacts our whole body, and that is what this post will show you, so make sure you watch the video below.

Campbell-McBride is not alone in her plea for personal responsibility in the home, and it is exciting to find so many medical specialists reaching out to the public, telling them what the Savvy Team founders have been saying for decades now – “Your health is directly related to a healthy gut, which depends entirely on the foods you eat, the quality and quantity of nutrition you get, on your mental and emotional state and last but not least, on your exposures to toxins -both exogenous and endogenous.” All of these areas impact your micro biome and you.

For more information or a special recorded audio explaining how you and your family are being affected by the care you give this army, contact your Savvy support team person, or info@savvy-team.com. Continue reading 'Feeding The Hungry Microbiome'»

The Silent Health Saboteur

By , July 17, 2014

Surely if there’s an underlying cause of our widespread weariness, we should know about it?

“The reason doctors don’t flag it is because they’re taught in medical school that the adrenal glands are either working perfectly well or not working at all, which is a condition called Addison’s disease,” explains Dr Peter Dobie,  integrative GP and adrenal fatigue specialist. “However, an increasing number of doctors, myself included, believe there’s a grey area or intermediate zone of adrenal function where the adrenals are working, but not as well as they should be.

The adrenal glands produce around 50 different hormones, which influence everything from how we handle stress to our metabolism, inflammatory response, blood glucose levels, blood pressure and our fluid and electrolyte balance.

The adrenal glands have fundamental functions in the body and are primary to our immune system function, our reproductive function and even our neurological system. If they become exhausted, it can initiate a domino effect where many other systems start to go down,” explains Dr Sherrill Sellman.

Dr Sherrill Sellman naturopath and women’s natural health expert, is author of ‘Hormone Heresy: What Women Must Know About Their Hormones’, and ‘What Women MUST Know To Protect Their Daughters From Breast Cancer’. Dr Sellman will be visiting South East Queensland and we are hosting TWO events, one at the end of july and first week in August, so make you get along to hear her talk on all things hormonal, male and female. DOWNLOAD this flyer for more details.
