To search for things beyond our grasp is fantasy,
When that which lies within our reach we see
Has not yet been completed, yet holds the key,
To that which through right action ours will be.
The simplest things in life will make us free.
Prof. Dr. Sir John Whitman Ray, from ‘Logic In Sequence. Book 1: Laws of Perfection.’
There is a great need for people to bring order into their lives, at home, at work, in their relationships and their thinking. Yet it seems such an uncertain world out there. Chaos reigns supreme, so they say.
Do you ever feel, “It all looks so bleak. Why should I even bother to try to move forward in life or my career? Why should I try to improve my circumstances when I don’t think it will lead to anywhere? Why should I try anything in this crazy, uncertain, unpredictable and difficult environment?” Continue reading 'The ‘LIST’'»
When my grandson came down with an extended period of vomiting and diarrhoea, I thought I had better see what the latest news is on the issue. I found this article, provided by the South Australian Government, in their IMVS Newsletter 65 Autumn 2007. The article said that most causes of acute infectious gastroenteritis are viral.
It quoted a prospective case control study of paediatric diarrhoea from Adelaide’s Women’s and Children’s Hospital showing that viral pathogens were detected in 71% of all infective diarrhoeal illnesses. It also said viral causes of diarrhoea infect nearly all children in the first few years of life.
What I was excited to read however, was that the main-stay of treatment is replacement of fluids and that while there are no specific antiviral agents available, a hyperimmune bovine colostrum has been shown to be an extremely useful prophylactic agent against rotavirus infection in children. How about that! Not new news for the Savvy team, but perhaps there are plenty of others, mums in particular, who are looking for simple solutions for their suffering child.
Bovine Colostrum is safe, non-toxic and can be consumed in any quantity without side-effects or drug interactions, and has been proven to be at least three times more effective than vaccination. Other articles we have written on the other benefits of colostrum are Colostrum And Macca: Natural Ingredients for Optimal Health; Immunity: What’s Your Back-Up Plan?; Tired of Being Sick And Tired? Avoid Allergies, Asthma And Sinus This Winter.

To begin with, what exactly, is social marketing? In the Social Marketing Report, it’s defined as, “the application of commercial marketing techniques to social problems.” In reality it is an approach used to develop activities or information aimed at changing or maintaining people’s behaviour for the benefit of individuals and society as a whole.
Social marketing uses the benefits of doing social good to secure and maintain customer engagement. In social marketing the distinguishing feature is therefore its primary focus on social good, and it is not a secondary outcome. Social Marketing talks to the consumer, not about the product – the primary focus being on the consumer – on learning what people want and need rather than trying to persuade them to buy what we happen to be producing.
The focus on the “consumer” involves in-depth research and constant re-evaluation of every aspect of their needs, wants and don’t wants. In fact, research and evaluation together form the very cornerstone of the social marketing process.
Philip Kotler, an American marketing author, consultant, and Distinguished Professor of International Marketing at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University says, “Social marketing seeks to influence social behaviours not to benefit the marketer, but to benefit the target audience and the general society.” This concept of changing people’s behaviour is the basis of social marketing.

According to Blair Singer, the single most important characteristic of any successful sales professionals is their emotional strength. What exactly is emotional strength, or as Singer calls it ‘e-strength’?
It’s your ability to respond without any heightened negative emotion in any sales situation. This means that you are able to handle any type of objection and make a successful presentation to even the most difficult prospect. It means that you are able to make new contacts confidently without fear of rejection and to be able to clearly understand your clients – all while being yourself. You do not need to become someone else to be able to relate to people easily.
Increased e-strength gives you an advantage that will take you light years beyond where you are today. By understanding yourself (do the diagnostic at SalesDogs.com to find out what your own strengths and weaknesses are), you’ll develop the key skills that will change your mindset forever. You will not only produce exceptional results in your professional sales career, but you will discover that it translates across every aspect of your life – giving you better relationships, increased results, improved communication and a generally happier life, everywhere!

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'»
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'»
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

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 leadership. Continue reading 'The Symbolism of Eagles'»
