You Got The Power

Feeling Powerless?

It happens. Ugh! What a world… it keeps spinning… feeling dizzy! Dizziness isn’t the half of it!

Maybe someone has done you wrong because their take on life situations don’t gel with yours. Different perceptions and misunderstandings happen. Should you be pro-active and confront the matter or over-look the obvious to keep the peace? Maybe, you hope for the best but over time, things get worse. How did things get so messed up?

Are you being cooked?

Do you remember the analogy of the frog who was put in boiling water? Instinct triggers the frog to jump out of the water. However, when the frog is put in warm water, he swims around. The frog is having a good old-time and doesn’t notice that the temperature in the pot is getting hotter and hotter. When the water starts to boil, the poor frog is too weak to jump out.

Are you in survival mode?

It takes more than planning, it takes a wise strategy to keep your finances, business and life in balance. This takes looking back at the past and learning from your mistakes. Then, take a good look at the present and the big picture. What are the changes that are happening now and how does this effect your future and the future of those you hold dear?

Let’s focus on business P-O-W-E-R…

·       P – Prepare. Be Positive.

 ·      O – Be Open to Opportunities. You are an Original. 

·       W – Use Winning Words.

·        E – Enthusiastic Efforts become Effortless.

·        R – Get Ready to Recreate.

You Got The Power!

I believe the ultimate Creator is God and His Power is glorified in our weakness.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9

Smokin’

Dean Martin and The Golddiggers, 1977

We hail the King of Cool, Dean Martin, member of the legendary “Rat Pack” with a tribute on June 9th for his 100th birthday.

Dean Martin’s 100th Birthday Tributes

Dean Martin was smoking hot with his natural charisma that we all loved. He was known for holding a cigarette or a glass of alcohol but this was not why he was known as, the King of Cool. Did you know that the glass that Dean carried was usually filled with apple juice and his cigarette was usually not lit?

 

I had the pleasure of performing with Dean Martin on stage and television sharing many laughs behind the scenes during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. During Dean’s later years, he would joke with the audience saying, “If I knew I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.” Truth said in jest.

A flashback to the past propels me into the future and into a Smoking Cessation class held at the Center for Healthy Living, Kaiser Permanente. This is where I facilitate as a Lifestyle Educator with a professional staff dedicated to helping patients in their desire to thrive.

 

A “Freedom from Tobacco” class can give you the tools to liberate yourself from smoking and benefit your health. In this class a patient will learn the “5 D’s” to help them stop the craving.

  • Deep breathe
  • Delay using tobacco (at least 5 minutes)
  • Drink water
  • Do something else (keep busy)
  • Discuss your craving with someone.

These 5 D’s can also be applied to any addiction including food cravings. At Kaiser Permanente, these evidence-based techniques will be explored to empower you in our interactive workshops.

Start today to take better care of yourself. A healthy YOU is SMOKIN… HOT’!
