Maximum Achievment by Brian Tracy

max achievment

So i have started reading this new book that was recommended to me called Maximum Achievment by Brian Tracy. Now i had never heard of Brian Tracy so did not know of his work or his fame in this area. So i took the recommendation and ordered it on Chapters, collected my book last night and today on my lunch began the journey into some more knowledge on self discovery and reaching my ‘Maximum Achievment’ .

As i am moving to Edmonton soon with my other half and i am happily finishing up the job i have worked the last two years in (like a DRONE) i might add i have been really gaining my inner power to really try and reach my maximum and not let myself be limited by my own doing or others doing for that matter, which i feel i have let myself do for the last 2 years in this job, i have squashed my intelligence, creativity and power…but NO MORE!

So i wanted to share with you some of the already inspiring words that i have gotten from this book and i am not even 20 pages in……Needless to say i am more than excited to keep reading…

Peace of mind is central to your very existence. It is the basic precondition for enjoying everything else.

I learned that if i didn’t commit to achieving my own happiness, no one else would. If my aim in life was only to make others happy, i would always be at the mercy of the feelings of others, whoever they might be.

If you achieve all kinds of things in the material world but lose your health and piece of mind, you get little or no pleasure from your other accomplishments.

How much two people, or a family, laugh together is the surest single measure of how well things are going. When a relationship is truly happy, people laugh alot when they’re together.

Think before you Drink…..Healthy Hydration

Think before you Drink…Healthy Hydration for Your amazing body 🙂
Are some of your favourite everyday drinks coke, diet coke, Pepsi, red bull, cartooned juices or any other soda’s, bottled drinks…?
I think a lot of people know the effects that the likes of Coke, Pepsi, Red Bull, and majority of these sugary drinks including Cartooned Juice’s have on our bodies or people do and they ignore it, none of us are invisible; but if you don’t, let me fill you in on the negative effects these drinks have on our bodies (incl. preventing weight loss, increase of toxic chemicals in our bodies, dehydration, energy crash, depresses your immune system, ages your skin)
Most people consume these because they feel they need an “energy boost”, “sugar craving” , “thirsty”, all of these reasons are your body telling you that you are actually lacking water and nutrients.  Really your body is calling for you to feed it with water and vitamins and minerals., all of these which can be gotten just as quickly as a sugar drink.
Your average soda will have somewhere between 27 to 30 grams of sugar per 8 ounces. Most cans of soda are 12 ounce servings or more. Diet Drinks while they do not contain sugar, they contain sweetener,which is a chemical manufactured to taste sweet like sugar (These are NO BETTER for your body than sugar, I go as far as saying probably worse), Fruit flavoured juices contain 8 tsp sugar so where you can squeeze your own juice, yes they will still contain sugar but there are no additives, it is natural sugar, where you can have water/herbal,fruit tea’s/vegi or natural fruit juice to rehydrate. (Also eating watermelon and cucumber rehydrate your body very quickly as they are composed of almost 90 water)
**High-fructose corn syrup has the most of all sugar side effects. High-fructose corn syrup is used heavily in processed foods and drinks (note this is in majority processed foods so the less processed and less often, the best, even BREAD is processed) because it is sweeter, extends the shelf life, and is cheaper to produce. You will find it in most sodas, fruit-flavoured drinks and packaged foods. Unfortunately, its effects are horrific to your health and body, it is a completely manufactured chemical.
**The Water in this picture i believe is a fruit flavoured water hence the sugar in it.
Some facts on the what sugar in these everyday drinks(mainly fizzy/soda/carbonated/canned/bottled) do:
·        It feeds cancer cells and has been connected with the development of cancer of the breast, ovaries, prostate, rectum, pancreas, lung, gallbladder and stomach.
·        It can cause autoimmune diseases such as: arthritis, asthma, multiple sclerosis.
·        It greatly assists the uncontrolled growth of Candida yeast infections.
·        It can increase the size of your liver by making your liver cells divide and it can increase the amount of liver fat.
·        It can increase kidney size and produce pathological changes in the kidney such as the formation of kidney stones.
·        It can increase your risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
·        It can cause hormonal imbalances such as: increasing estrogen in men, exacerbating PMS, and decreasing growth hormone.
·        Your body changes it into 2 to 5 times more fat in the bloodstream than it does starch.
·        Increase chances of Type 2 Diabetes and inhibitsmineral and vitamin absorption.
·        Causes dehydrationand the need for more and more sugar.
·        Leaves toxins in our body that inhibit nutrient absorption resulting in a vicious circle effect (You wanting more processed foods and drinks because you are not absorbing any).
Needless to say there is a ton more reasons why high sugar/sweetener drinks (diet too) are bad for your body and your diet and ways in which you can rehydrate and quinch your thirst without jeopardising your health. If you do have a sugary/sweetened drink, try keeping it few and far betweenJ.
Ways for Healthy Hydration instead of needing the sugar drinks:
·        Drink Water
·        Drink Herbal Tea or Fruit Tea
·        Drink Hot Water with slice of lemon/orange/lime and small squeeze of organic honey.
·        Drink some fresh squeezed vegi juice or if you need the sugar mix fresh vegi and fruit juice.
·        Eat some Watermelon or Cucumber – 90% Water content
·        Drink water with dash of fresh fruit juice if you think water is too bland (although we are made of mostly water and we ain’t bland …. ;))
Hope this helps to hydrate your Amazing body in the best way possible and the after effects it has.

Basic ways to Detox and Clean your body Everyday :)

An Excellent Article on the most Basic ways to detox your body on a daily basis! Something we can all do, from the team at “Hungry for Change” and

Do You Need A Detox?

Our bodies naturally detoxify everyday as part of a normal body process. Detoxification is one of the body’s most basic automatic functions of eliminating and neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymphand skin. Unfortunately in this day and age, with the pollution found in the air, water and food we eat, our bodies have a hard time keeping up. Our chemicalized diet with too much processed foods, vegetable oils and trans fats, non-organic foods, caffeine and alcohol radically changes our internal ecosystem.

Body systems and organs that were once capable of cleaning out unwanted substances are now completely over-loaded to the point where toxic material remains inside our tissues. Our bodies try to protect us from dangerous substances by setting it aside, surrounding it with mucous and fat so that it will not cause an imbalance or trigger an immune response (some people carry up to 15 extra pounds of mucous that harbors this waste).

Detoxification through special cleansing processes is the best way to assist your body’s natural self-cleaning system. It is especially important for immune-compromised diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes and chronic fatigue. However, even if your diet is good, a spring cleanse can revitalize your system and rid your body of harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites. Here are some simple detox tips to get you started…

4 Simple Detox Tips

1. Drink More Water 

Too often we misinterpret thirst for hunger. Our signal for thirst may cause us to eat as we mistake it for hunger pains. Reach for water first and make sure you are well hydrated before eating any meal throughout the day. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
Where possible make sure to drink your water at least 30 minutes before eating as this will allow time for the water to properly penetrate the cells of your body and hydrate your stomach lining in preparation for proper digestion. I like to add lemon juice and apple cider vinegar to my water or green it up with barley grass powder, wheatgrass powder, spirulina or chlorella.

2. Add A Green Juice To Your Day 

Green juices are an amazing way to add life giving and detoxifying plant chlorophyll to your bloodstream. As Jason Vale says in ‘Hungry For Change’, “juicing is the ultimate fast food, it is a 15 minute nutrient express to health”. Some of my favorite and simple green juice recipes include:

Green Juice Recipe Ideas:

– Celery, lemon and pear (or apple)
– Celery, cucumber, lemon (leave the skin on) and pear (or apple)
– Celery, cucumber, kale, lemon and pear (or apple)
– Celery, cucumber, lemon, parsley and pear (or apple)

I also like to stir whatever green powders I have laying around the house into my juices to green them up even more! Again try barley grass, wheatgrass, spirulina or chlorella powders.

3. Add More Parsley and Cilantro (Coriander) To Your Diet  

Parsley and cilantro (coriander) are very powerful natural green plant foods for detoxing heavy metals out of your body. Add these amazing herbs to juices, salads, soups and meals.

Heavy Metal Detox Pesto Recipe:

  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/3 cup Brazil nuts (selenium source) or macadamia nuts
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds (cysteine source)
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds (zinc, magnesium sources)
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro (corriander)
  • 1 cup parsley
  • 2/3 cup cold pressed olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice (Vitamin C source)
  • Big pinch of sea salt and or dulse flakes to flavor

Soak the seeds and nuts over night to release the enzyme exhibitors. Process the parsley, cilantro (corriander) and olive oil in a blender until chopped. Add the garlic, nuts, and seeds, salt / dulse and lemon juice and mix until the mixture is finely blended into a paste. Store in dark glass jars if possible. It freezes well also if needs be. Enjoy!

4. Breathe Deep Into Your Abdomen  

Deep breathing, where you fill your belly and expand your diaphragm downwards, is one of the most powerful exercise you can do to activate your lymph system which helps to detoxify your body. Think of your lymph system as your own personal garbage removal system (which most of us will need in full steam after the holiday season). Practise 10 deep slow breaths counting 4 seconds in, 8 seconds hold and 8 seconds out. You can do this exercize watching the TV, walking the dog, during meditation or whilst practising yoga.

According to the ‘Tao of Breathing’ up to 70% of our body’s waste products are eliminated via our lungs and the rest through the urine, skin and feces. When the efficiency of our lungs is reduced due to poor breathing less oxygen is available to our cells, it slows down the flow of blood which carries wastes from the kidneys and lungs. Our lymphatic system which fights off viral and bacterial invaders is weakened along with a slower digestive process.

Breathe long slow and deep in a mindful state as often as possible.
