September 22nd may very well prove to be the most important day of your year, and perhaps even your life.
#1 – It marks the final 100 days of the year.
#2 – It provides you with an opportunity to redeem yourself by finishing the year strong.
#3 – It represents the turning point in your life and will come to symbolize, the day you took full control of your destiny.
Since you’ve read this far, consider a few questions:
How many of your goals have you accomplished so far this year?
Have your current strategies made you healthier, wealthier and happier?
If you continue doing what you’ve done these past 265 days where will you be, and what will you be doing on Jan 1, 2015?
Will you be struggling, spinning your wheels in the same place you are now?
Why would you want that?
Especially when you could be…
Confidently executing the plan that launches your new online business…Or, completing the manuscript that makes you a best selling author…OR finishing the year strong and exceeding your annual sales quota.
I’d like to show you how, and here’s a great video series and special report for you to check out:
Some people may think that goals have a definite timeline to accomplish. In part, this is true, but there are certainly ways on how you can hasten the process. You can achieve more great things by focusing on the current job and getting it done, without any compromise. Here are some guidelines from the experts that you can use yourself.
Step One: Forming a Team
Things can be accomplished more quickly if you rely on other people and assign tasks accordingly. When forming a team, it is important that you choose individuals whom you can trust and are truly competent in the fields you assign them to. Teams need to be supervised to ensure that you get the results you want. You can also create a hierarchy or create pairs so that one can look out for the other, thereby saving you time when reviewing work.
Forming a team gives you the benefit of practicing your leadership skills. You will find that later on, you also get to finish tasks more quickly alone, since you’ve already created an effective system that will provide a smoother flow of various jobs. Make sure you also get the appropriate number of people for the job, or else you risk having too many to watch over, wasting precious time in the process.
Step Two: Finding Shortcuts
Some goals actually have shortcuts that you can use to reach more quickly. These are not quick fixes, but can help the entire system respond in a more conducive manner, thereby boosting the process. For example, there are no short cuts to permanent weight loss, but you can do some techniques that will hasten the fat loss. Some of the approaches include using HIIT or high intensity interval training, instead of the traditional cardiovascular exercise. HIIT is done only in 20 minutes tops, and burns more fat and raises your metabolism higher and for longer periods of time. Your body will respond to the exercise faster.
To know about the shortcuts, always stay updated with changes and developments in technology and professional programs. Stay connected in a network of people related to your goals. Joining forums and online seminars are ideal. You can also talk to experts, so you can compare processes and determine if a certain approach is truly effective.
Step Three: Extra Hours
Consistency, discipline and dedication always give you faster and better results. If you want to finish things faster, you may have to put in extra hours and work longer than the usual. The more important thing is that you keep stress levels down afterwards by relaxing and giving yourself enough time to rest. This way, you can move on to the next goals to be achieved. Overtime should also be well-planned. You cannot expect to work effectively beyond your usual time if you’re still tired the night before or do not have enough equipment to work with.
Prepare and strategize by coming up with small objectives and actions steps to be done in sequence. Having information prior to your overtime can help greatly and save you lots of idle time. You may also ask someone to work with you during overtime to accomplish more. Try to incorporate all the three steps above and see for yourself how much more you can boost the process.
If you need a goal-setting coach or mentor, check out this guy Gary Ryan Blair. If he can’t get you to finally achieve at least some of your goals then it would be safe to say that nobody ever will.
It might be the result of all the news lately about surveillance and privacy concerns, but here’s a pretty darn good idea which I’d like for you to consider…
What do you think would happen if I were to follow you with a camera crew 24 hours a day, 7 days a week while you went for your goals?
I bet 3 things would immediately take place…
1. You would START doing the things you know you need to do.
2. You would STOP doing the things you know you shouldn’t be doing.
3. You would build MASSIVE momentum and make monumental performance gains.
THIS IS ALL possible by raising the stakes and enforcing greater levels of accountability.
Accountability serves and protects your character, credibility and commitments. It ensures that what you want to accomplish gets accomplished.
With that reality in mind, I wanted to share with you an exciting opportunity to achieve every goal you set, to enforce ultimate accountability, and show you how to start the second quarter focused and fired up.
Gary Ryan Blair, otherwise known as The Goals Guy, has put together a radical approach to goal setting and performance enhancement that truly is simply… OUTSTANDING!
It’s called the 100 Day Challenge and by acting fast, you can snag a Special Report and free video series that overdelivers in a big way.
In my opinion, the report itself is worth its weight as it shows you how to create radical results – fast!
…and the video series ain’t too shabby either.

Today, June 24th is an important benchmark as just seven days from now the year will be 50% complete.
That’s right, two quarters down, and the third one about to tee up.
I can assure you that all Sales Managers, Stock Analysts and Fortune 500 Executives are well aware of this date and doing what they can to finish the 2nd quarter strong.
In my opinion, this last week of June is of supreme importance as once July 1st arrives, YOU will find out if your current strategies and year to date performance makes you look like a champ or a chump.
(I suspect you already know.)
Consider the following…
If you had ambitions of making $250,000 this year, you should be closing in on $125,000.
If you had a resolution of paying off $20,000 in debt, you should be $10,000 lighter by now.
And if you said you were going to lose 40 pounds, you should have dropped 20 by now and be wearing baggy pants.
Are you on track with any of your goals?
Have you surpassed your expectations?
Are you even close?
IF you have not made as much progress as you’d like in the first half of the year,
and need a serious PICK ME UP, I’d like to share with you an exceptional MANIFESTO
and video series that will get your mojo working in overdrive.

Some of us discover that we have high blood pressure situation – or hypertension as the white coats like to call it – rather by accident. A friend or relative has one of those little automatic blood pressure monitors and we try it on for fun. Other people find out during a routine doctor’s visit when the nurse takes their blood pressure reading on a lark. The lucky ones among us have an inbuilt mechanism where we can’t actually feel comfortable when our blood pressure is over 140/90. If you’re someone who actually feels his blood pressure, you’re in luck because you won’t ever let it go untreated. If you’re not interested in taking meds all the time though, is there a way to cure hypertension through regular natural means?
You bet there are. Except that when we say that we cure hypertension through natural means, what we actually mean is that we treat it and keep it under control. If that’s what you’re aiming for, that’s eminently possible through nothing more than lifestyle changes.
Most people don’t get any kind of blood pressure problems when they’re young. It’s only once they cross 35 or so that the problem starts. What happens at 35? Well, any unhealthy habits you may have had, begin catching up with you is what happens. You put on weight, you become too busy with your career to get any exercise, all the years of unhealthy eating begin to catch up with you and so on.
So all you need to do is to look at any unhealthy signs of an unhealthy lifestyle and reverse them. Start acting like you’re still young.
For instance, take a look at your weight and your waistline. If as a man, you have a waistline that’s bigger than 40 inches or if you’re a woman and your waistline is bigger than 35 inches, you’re in trouble. If you’re Asian, you get into trouble earlier than this. Basically, it isn’t enough to just lose weight. You’ll need to take a look at keeping that waistline under control. Just having fat around your waist puts a great deal of stress on your heart.
Of course, the entire world is out there trying to find a way out of obesity. But you really don’t need to worry about any celebrity diets or brand-name diets. All you need to do is to get out there and make like you’re young. Get a little exercise. Get it every day. You don’t have to pound the sidewalk like you’re a cop on the beat though. Just do interesting stuff – take up swimming. Get a dog and play with him. Join a cause and go door-to-door. Just do things.
Yes, you have read that alcohol is good for your heart, and you’re not about to give that up. Well, when they mean that alcohol is good for you, they mean that very small amounts are good for you. And take a gander at this – doctors say that if you don’t already drink alcohol, you shouldn’t start just for your blood pressure. It doesn’t help cure hypertension that much.
If you have always wanted children, the news that you are infertile can be a huge blow to your life. Coping with infertility is a different journey for each person, but know that the label of being infertile is a bit deceiving. There are very few people with this label that actually cannot ever have children. This often means that you are challenged in your quest, but it does not mean your miracle will not happen. No matter what your real situation may be, learning to cope will help you deal with something that can be about as heartbreaking as losing someone close to you.
Coping with infertility for a woman is tough. She may feel that she has failed at the one thing that she should be able to do and that others seem to do so easily. Seeing pregnant teenagers and families that always seem to have surprise pregnancies can be super tough. One of the first and hardest things that you must do if you this is you is to understand that their success is not your failure. You did not do anything wrong. It is unfair that you want a baby so badly when so many have them and neglect and even abuse them, but you cannot let this become personal to you.
Men also can have a hard time coping with infertility. It could be that they are the issue or it could be that their wife cannot have a baby or that nothing is working. Women often worry a man that wants kids will leave her for someone who does not have fertility issues. This effects the man though he may not even realize this is her worry. Men also feel that having a low sperm or motility count means that they are less of a man than they should be. Dispelling these myths in a man’s mind is a huge step in coping.
What any couple should remember when they cannot conceive right away is that infertility may just mean a delay in parenthood. There are many couples that give up on having their own only to find that they are blessed later on in life. Some try for fifteen years before they have a child. If you are constantly worried about it and doing all you can to get pregnant, you are putting yourself under stress that can delay conception for someone who already has fertility issues. Take up yoga or deep breathing, keep yourself busy and pretend as best you can that you are not desperate to have a baby. It may help. Also, talks with a doctor about coping with infertility can help you as well.
Coping with infertility means accepting that you may have challenges. Instead of giving up, see what you can do to up your chances. Also find means to come to grips with your issues and get treatment for any conditions that may hamper your ability to have children. Let friends and family help you and comfort you when you feel bad and remember that many couples who are told they will never have children defy the odds. You may be one of those couples too. Get books to help and find support online. The future is not written and stone so remember to keep the faith.
You might think that most people that smoke have no qualms about it and want to continue. The truth is that most people who smoke wish that they did not. Nicotine is a drug and it is one that is incredibly hard to get over. Smokers try time and time again before they finally quit. One of the biggest reasons why people have such a hard time quitting is because of cigarette withdrawal symptoms. These are very powerful and they can break even the most determined. Will power alone is not always the answer because these symptoms are so strong.
Those that quit will notice problems within a half an hour. The average craving for nicotine lasts about thirty seconds to three minutes. If a smoker can get through that time without lighting up, they will feel better, at least until the next craving. This seems like a short amount of time, but to the smoker it feels like hours. This is when cigarette withdrawal symptoms are at their worst and is when many cave. Even those that get past a few of these end up craving the next time one hits. The craving is stronger – much stronger than one who has never smoked could imagine.
Some cigarette withdrawal symptoms are more spread out but can be very unsettling. Sleep is often disturbed as a person tries to quiet smoking. Most people who are quitting either on their own or with some type of stop-smoking aid report that they have trouble sleeping. They may have a hard time falling asleep and they may also wake up many times a night. Most have vivid nightmares also. Nightmares do not seem like a big deal, but when you have really bad ones night after night it starts to really affect your mental well-being.
Some believe that they smoke because it relaxes them. The truth is that cigarettes act as a stimulant. The true relaxation that comes is from the habit and act of smoking. The feel of the cigarette in the hand and the feel of the smoke going in and out of the lungs is what feels relaxing. The nicotine itself thins the blood a bit and stimulates the body. If you are having trouble with cigarette withdrawal symptoms, try finding something to replace at least some of the more relaxing aspects of smoking. Put something in your hand, chew on a straw, or come up with something that works for you.
If the cigarette withdrawal symptoms are too much for you when you are quitting on your own, try one of the many products out there that help smokers quit. Most of these are nicotine replacement therapies, but not all of them are. Some are medications that work with the addiction center of the brain. Smoking is tough to break. If it was easy, there would be far fewer smokers in the world today. If you are struggling but are determined to break, go see your doctor to ask for help. You will be glad you did.
As I look around at young people today, it seems that they are getting bigger and bigger. We constantly hear reports about how rampant childhood obesity has become in this country, and it will only become a more serious problem as time goes on.
The reality of the matter is that childhood obesity has become an epidemic for a number of reasons. First and foremost, the access to fast food is greater than it has ever been before in human history. It seems that on every block, practically, there is some new eatery popping up that serves the most unhealthy food imaginable, and naturally, we all flock to them while we are slowly killing ourselves with what we are putting into our bodies.
Another major factor in childhood obesity is the fact that most kids just don’t go outside and play anymore. This may seem rather simple, but when I was growing up, the way we entertained ourselves was by going outside and playing. We would play outside after we got off of school, on weekends and almost live outside during the summer months. I could not remember a time growing up where I was not outside doing something, and today, it seems like most kids just stay inside and play video games or get online.
Then there is the fact that we really do not educate young people well enough on the dangers associated with eating fast food and junk food. We wonder why childhood obesity is such a problem in this country and now throughout the world, and yet, practically every commercial we see is for something fattening and unhealthy, but that tastes really good. We inundate young people with such advertisements, because they are the ones that will pester their parents to have that for dinner.
Now, I don’t believe that fast food and junk food in and of themselves are strictly the problem. After all, our parents’ generation grew up with the same places to go and eat, and there was not nearly the problem with childhood obesity in their generation that there is with ours. We have to teach children moderation, and that while eating this kind of food is OK from time to time, one certainly does not want to make a steady diet of it.
Childhood obesity will continue to grow in this country until a strong-enough movement starts that promotes healthy eating, exercising and living a life that can be fulfilling and rewarding that does not necessarily have to revolve around food. Biologically, it is only natural, when food is plentiful, to try to horde as much of it as possible, but in the case of our country and our young people, the very thing that gives us sustenance is also taking years off of our lives.
