  1. Read Books that Make you think Outside the Box!

Brighten your horizon by realizing that everyone is your teacher. Gradually, you’ll gravitate to books – reading them will shape and mould your character brick by brick. Over time, they’ll help carve out a masterpiece of an inner canvas, making you consider possibilities you would have never otherwise considered.

One idea has the potential to change your life forever if you act on it.“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” Sometimes, the most profound insights you have in your life will come through reading one sentence, one quote, in one book.

  1. Invest BIG in Yourself

Countless people similar to you have made mistakes and often pass on their decades of experience — so that you don’t have to learn things the hard way. Warren Buffett, the world renowned and famous investor, once said “It’s good to learn from your mistakes. But it’s better to learn from other people’s mistakes.”

Whether it’s through an online course, seminar, or a three-day event (related to skills you’re passionate about improving) — you’ll usually come back with an upgraded toolkit. Having the willingness to let go of your ego, by investing in yourself, will cut your learning curve and allow you to get the skills that some people have taken YEARS to learn.

Just because you’ve finished your degree doesn’t mean your life education is over. In fact, it’s always just getting started. Remember: if you don’t invest in yourself, then who will?

  1. Reflect on your Direction Regularly!

You only ever have so much energy to give, and every once in awhile; you need to make a pit stop. That can take the form of a public blog, a written journal, or simply a conversation with a friend to reflect on your year so far.

Reflecting on your journey, is one of the most important things you can do for your direction and self-awareness in the long term. The active recovery will give you the clarity needed to act on hard truths — so that you can make wise improvements in both your personal and professional life.

  1. Save BIG Money Every Month

If you don’t have money under control, you don’t live free. If you don’t save money every month, you’re not preparing for the future. Making a saving plan doesn’t have to be complicated. You just need to calculate how much you automatically spend every month, and then create a comfortable monthly standing order for an amount that you can easily commit to.

Brian Tracy, one of the most prominent self-improvement gurus, in his book, the 21 Secrets of Millionaires, wrote: “if you don’t save money, the seeds of greatness aren’t within you. By saving for the future, you show that you understand that a little money saved each month, will end up going a long way towards your freedom. And freedom is something you value tremendously.

  1. Mostly Eat Healthy Food!

Anyone can eat a couple of fruits and vegetables per day. Anyone can eat one protein-rich meal per day. Anyone can skip the soda and make sure they drink enough water. Eating healthy is not a pursuit of perfection, it’s just about feeding your body more of what it needs, and less of what it doesn’t.

Companies are spending billions of dollars on marketing processed foods so you can’t be too harsh on yourself if you eat unhealthy on occasion. Yes, you’ve probably grown to love cookies, ice cream, and the like — but by feeding your body more nutritious foods most of the time, you’ll disable part of the lure processed foods have over you.

  1. Exercise Regularly!

Exercise isn’t just about improving your physique or your health; it’s about improving your mentality and physiology. Similarly to fine-tuning a car, your body needs the right intervention to operate at its best! You only ever end up getting one body in your lifetime, so you do what you can to take care of it! Whether you go to the gym three times per week, jog once a week, play sports with your friends — you were built to move!

Having an xercisee ritual is a gateway into a higher state of energy and focus. And with that state, you can experience more rewarding days = a more rewarding life.If you’re exercising in some form regularly (even if it’s just taking a long walk), then you’re leveraging all the areas of your life closer to their full potential!

  1. Be Mindful of your Media Consumption!

One of the easiest ways to relax and stimulate yourself after a long day at work is to turn on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or whatever’s trending now. With a flick of your fingers, you can get access to a whole variety of entertainment. The average person in America consumes an average of five hours of Television per day! Zig Ziglar, in his book, How to Stay Motivated, mentions that the average Chairman of a board only consumes four to eight hours of television per week.

Be the chairman of your life — by being mindful of the quality and quantity of information you allow to flow into your consciousness. You decide whether you want to experience the better part of the thrills you seek, through a screen, or your life…

With time and application, these seven different components of your life will start clicking into place, as they continually serve to brighten your horizon!

The Brave New World of Gene Editing

In recent years, two new genetic technologies have started a scientific and medical revolution. One, relatively well known, is the ability to easily decode the information in our genes. The other, which is only dimly understood by the general public, is our newfound capacity to modify genes at will. These innovations give us the power to predict certain risks to our health, eliminate deadly diseases, and ultimately transform ourselves and the whole of nature. This development raises complex and urgent questions about the kind of society we want and who we really are. A brave new world is just around the corner, and we had better be ready for it or things could go horribly wrong.

Myth-Maker of the Brothel

Of all the masters of the woodblock print in the Edo Period, Utamaro has the most colorful reputation. Hokusai was perhaps the greatest draughtsman, Hiroshige excelled in landscapes, and Kuniyoshi had the wildest theatrical flair. Utamaro (1753-1806), whose work is featured in an exhibition at the Sackler Gallery, was the lover of women.


A Cozy Vintage Loft in Manhattan Inspired by a Simple Decor Style

Inspired by a simple décor style, fresh and careless, this beautiful loft could not be more charming. The apartment has exposed brick walls painted white, which adds light and visual amplitude to the space, and makes this home, though far from elegant or refined, a charming and inviting space. Because, when speaking of taste, there’s nothing set in stone, and sometimes simply by following our instincts we can arrive at..

On this day in 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt established…

On this day in 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt established Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado to “preserve the works of man.” It was the first national park of its kind, created to protect not just the natural beauty of the area but also the priceless cultural treasures found there. Mesa Verde preserves nearly 5,000 archaeological sites, including Cliff Palace, the largest cliff dwelling in the park. Visitors can explore these ancient buildings and imagine what life was like for the people who built them. Photo by Scott Reynolds (http://ift.tt/18oFfjl).

10 Key Ideas from The Truth About Cancer

I don’t read many books on health. A while back, however, I came across The Truth About Cancer and decided to read it. I was interested in it because cancer is one of the top killers in the modern age. More personally, my mom passed away because of cancer. I also have two friends who passed away because of cancer at the young age of 32 and 33.

I’m glad I read the book. Honestly, the content of the book is not what I expected. I expected a positive attitude toward popular cancer treatments like chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. But the book is actually against them. It’s eye-opening for me.

You might want to read the complete book yourself, but here are ten key ideas from the book:

1. Cancer is widespread.

Cancer is now one of the top killers in the world. About 40 percent of the general population will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives.

The most common type of cancer for a woman is breast cancer. For a man, it’s prostate cancer.

2. The standard treatments do more harm than good.

The standard treatments for cancer are chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Unfortunately, they often do more harm than good.

Chemotherapy, for instance, has a low success rate. Only about 2 percent of patients survived for more than five years after undergoing chemotheraphy. Chemotherapy is literal poison to the body that harms both bad and good cells.

3. Money is the main reason behind the standard treatments.

If they aren’t effective, then why are those treatments still used widely? The short answer is money. There is a lot of money to be made through them, and the industry just won’t let it go.

4. Beware of the screening movement.

There is now a widespread screening movement that encourages people to do regular checkups for cancer. Unfortunately, the standard screening procedures also do more harm than good. Mammography, for instance, could actually cause cancer.

5. There are better ways for early detection.

If the standard screening procedures are not recommended, then what should we use? Fortunately, there are good alternatives.

For mammography, a good alternative is thermography. For many other types of cancer, a good alternative is a combination of AMAS test and ONCOblot test.

6. “Alternative” treatments are often more effective than the standard ones.

Similar to the case of early detection, there are good alternatives to the standard treatments. Some of them are oxidative therapy, virotherapy, and metabolic theraphy.

7. The best way to handle cancer is to prevent it.

Prevention requires you to adopt a holistic, anticancer lifestyle which includes your mind, body, and spirit.

8. The most important aspect of prevention is nutrition.

Nutrition is the “fuel” that your body uses. That’s why it’s the most important aspect of cancer prevention.

For this, keep in mind that there are only two types of food: cancer-fueling and cancer-fighting. In general, processed food falls under the cancer-fueling category while organic food falls under the cancer-fighting category.

9. Regular exercise is essential.

In addition to nutrition, you need to make sure that you have regular exercise. Exercise causes your body to sweat which helps your body eliminate toxins. An especially good form of exercise is rebounding.

10. Have enough sleep and stay hydrated.

Having enough sleep and staying hydrated reduce your cancer risk.
