It is inevitable... here it comes... ready or not... like it or not... The year 2014 is over.  It is now time to ring in the New Year of 2015.  

Yes it’s time to dress up, uncork the champagne, and with mixed emotions, cheers and perhaps even a kiss. 

We then join in sing an old song based on a poem written by Robert Burns in 1788, “Auld Lang Syne,” the saying good bye to Old days gone by. However, simultaneously along with your first breath in the New Year, you begin to have thoughts of making a New Year Resolution.  As we know, a resolution is defined as “a decision or determination: to make a firm commitment to do something.”

Now New Year Resolutions generally cover a wide range of topics, desires and dreams. 

Examples of new-year resolutions are often initiated with the words, I resolve to:

Lose Weight; while on your lips, you can still taste the sweet vanilla ice cream, and rum cheese cake you had for desert.

Quit Smoking; as you glance at the fleshly lite cigarette between your fingers, and you recall the new pack cigarettes in your pocket, and the carton in the truck of your car. 

Drink Less Alcohol; remembering that you have your fifth glass of champagne in your hand, Dom Perignon, 1993.

Find True Love; as you seem to have lost track of your date for the evening; who was it Ashley, or was it Molly?

Get a Better Job; when all the while you know that you cannot even describe what it is that you do for a living, and can’t decide on what you would like to do to improve your job in the future.

Save Money; realizing that you just maxed out your credit cards, charging Christmas gifts and this evening’s celebration expenses.

Let’s face it, New Year resolutions are difficult, if not impossible to keep.  In fact the only ones who actually do benefit from New Year Resolutions, are the Weight Loss Clinics, Gymnasiums, and Alcoholics Anonymous Organizations.

In addition to that, frustrations are only compounded as you try to recall the New Year Resolutions you made last year.  Not only did you not keep your resolutions, but you also forgot to write them down.

Yes it’s true, time marches on with the changing days on a calendar, the months of the year, and the years of our life time. 

Regarding the future, we all want to be optimistic, in hoping for and working for the best outcome for all concerned.  However, we can be certain that; New Year Resolutions do not work, and they never will.  Making New Year Resolutions is a complete waste of time, energy and emotion.

Be assured that there is no need to burden yourself with resolutions that have an adverse effect on your life.  Set your life free of old resentments and impossible loyalties. 

Live YOUR life, and not the life of someone else.  Press on, push forward by organizing your priorities as much as possible, address what is important and devote yourself to the people and things you love. 

As one man put it; “pray not that you live long, but that you live well.”

To change and improve your life, you do not need, to sing old songs, champagne, and a countdown for the clock to strike Twelve. 

Instead, make changes and improves every moment of your precious fully enjoyed life.

Be among those who resolve NOT to make New Year Resolutions, but every day efforts to improve, achieve and succeed every moment of your life.  Cheers!

New Career After Fifty Five

0 Comments

As we age as humans in any society, we are constantly faced with the reality of change. No matter our situation in life, our social standings, our professional accomplishments, or our financial or family situation, change is inevitable.

However, the real truth is that “change” -  whether expected or unexpected - is not easy.

In this age of uncertainty and stress, we find it increasingly more difficult to hang on to the stability of life, the stability we once took for granted.

Due to the nature of our current economic situation, both professional, and nonprofessional Americans are faced  with mounting challenges to get ahead or even maintain their current station in life.

With record breaking unemployment, corporate downsizing, and poor economic outlooks, we need a new approach to this historical situation and a fresh mental and emotional perspective to find an effective solution.

In the past, we would become educated, get a good job with a large company and expect to stay there for as long as we wished.

However, that is no longer the case;. wWe now need to realistically anticipate that several job changes during our working career. You can bBe sure that this trend will no doubt become even more difficult in the coming years.

All these changes may sound exciting and challenging during our the young prime years of life,; however, when we see the years pass we tend to be faced with the feeling of being redundant, or superfluous in life.

We can even feel a tremendously negative emotion of being out of control. Something is happening to us that we are sure we don’t want it this to happen and we certainly did not expect it.

It is at this time that a flood of mixed emotions seems to become overwhelming. We feel hurt, sad, anxious, and definitely resistant to the necessary changes.

However, no matter what our thoughts might be regarding the matter facing us, we must deal with it.

I have often spoken to people who are faced with this the issue bring of being let go from their jobs during their fifties.

The real difficulties are made worse when people feel that they have given their work, their company, “their all” and have given their company “the best years of their lives.”

Yes, in our early work years we may have been among those who focused too much on our work related aspects and neglected the personal areas of our life.

And then, at the age of fifty, we are told or it is implied, that we are now no longer needed.

As you proceed with your career and your personal life, here are some helpful Ttips that might prove effective as the yearyear’s race by:.

-Make sure that you have an effective balance between your work and personal life. Remember, you work to live and not live to work.

-It may prove useful, even when you are currently employed, to periodically review any and all information regarding employment opportunities. Investigate job specifications as these may indicate what prospective employers are seeking. These will give you an idea of your own marketability in the present industry. Remember the old saying to “aAlways keep your hook in the water.”

-Have an effective contingency plan. This would include a financial plan for emergency income needed to cover basic household expenses, etc. Have a long term plan for retirement income possibilities. Remember your savings, 401K, or IRA, or Social Security, may not be enough to cover your future needs, especially if you are forced into an early retirement.

-Having to face the shock of your employment situation is not an easy task, to be sure. However, endeavor to view the situation as an opportunity for positive change. Solve the problem rather than fight with the problem.

-If you are in your fifties, brace yourself for changes. Don’t rely on your present job, but work for independence.  Start your own business and don’t count oin Corporate America.

-While in your present job, cultivate new skills that will help you in your new independent career.

Growing Old With Grace and Power!

0 Comments

In my extensive research and study about women I decide to visit retirement homes around the world and interview women of older ages.  What I found out was astonishing and very helpful for all of us today.

From close to 100 elderly women I interviewed in retirement homes I found out they all had one thing in common:  they were all condemning themselves to an early death.  They had lost the zest for life and wanted to die fast.  They had no purpose.  They were disappointed with their lives.  They also had no incentives to live.

One of them was named Mary; I asked her, “How old are you Mary?  She said “50 years old.”   “50?”  I said with a big surprise.  “50 are still very young,” I replied.

 “No. Not really.  I lived my life already and I am ready to die.”

I asked, “But Mary, do you have any children? Do you have a husband or relatives?”  

Mary replied, “No, I never got married and all in my family are dead.  There is nothing for me to do on this earth.  I sold everything I had and came here because I don’t want to be alone.”

“Mary,” I said, “I see this is a co-ed place.  Wouldn’t it be interesting to see if you can find a male companion here?  That will change the way you feel.”

She couldn’t stop laughing when I mentioned to maybe looking for a companion there.  I couldn’t believe she was so close minded to finding a new adventure and changing the way she was feeling.  She was still full of life but she refused to live it.  Why?  Because she felt she was old and useless.  How wrong she was.  It was all in her mind! Big lesson here!...

               What Retirement Should Be!

Retirement is a new beginning for a better life.

It is time to rejoice that you made it that far.

It is the time to celebrate life by giving of your knowledge to others.

Retirement is an opportunity to become what you couldn’t be.

-Retirement is a change of activity.

-It is time to change to a new routine.

-It is the time to get real purpose in life.

-It is the time to get a second and better re-defined career.

-It is the time to give back and share with society our wisdom and experience.

-It is the time to get a new definition of ourselves.

-It is the time to re-gain or gain more power.

-It is a wonderful time to give and help our families and others.

-It is time to give to you and perfect yourself in mind, intellect, body and spirit.

-It is a time to plan and build a stronghold for our future and leave a positive memory to our children.

-It is time to prepare, set goals and achieve them.

-It is time to produce and make money instead of relying on your SS to survive.

-It is time to be positive and follow your dreams.

Lose Weight, The Psychology

0 Comments

The Psychology

Lose Weight, The Psychology.  What is Psychology?  Under the correct and commonly accepted definition, Psychology is “the science of the mind or of the mental states and processes.”   This could well be your mental focus that motivates your actions.

In confronting the physical condition of being fat or overweight, why is the application of psychology so important?  Because buried deep within the condition of being fat is a mental disposition - a mental process of focus in every individual, which must not be ignored nor overlooked.

Yes, people, genuine and good people, with outstanding personalities, who are highly educated, capable of showing and giving love, kindness,  are intelligent and from a wide range of cultures and religions, have the overwhelming desire to lose weight and become fit and not be fat anymore.

However, the approach to solving the condition of being fat has not been in the application of psychology but in the application of several other programs, which vary from the very simple programs to very dangerous and expensive programs. These programs often encompass special diets, extreme exercises, and/or specially formulated drug programs.

Many individuals view the overweight condition of others as simply the lack of applying a very easy solution, saying: “Oh, well, if you are fat, just stop eating so much” or “What you need is to get off the couch and start moving.”

While eating too much or sitting a long time may be a factor, experienced, mature individuals know it is not that simple.  There is a mental disposition, a mental process that must be uncovered and, in many cases, refocused.

What is your mental disposition regarding being fat?

We can examine our mental views and thinking process regarding being fat by asking and answering ourselves the following questions:

  • Do you use your weight as an excuse not to have a social life?
  • Do you postpone shopping for a new dress because of your weight?
  • Do you shy away from close interactions with others?
  • Do you see yourself as inferior?
  • Do you see a thin person as superior?
  • Do you seek comfort from food when facing pain or sorrow?
  • Do you eat more when you have stress in your life?
  • Do you only have one mirror in your home?
  • Do you shy away from having your picture taken?
  • Do you see being thin as the real answer to happiness?
  • Do you feel invisible to others?

These are only a few of the self-examining questions we need to explore as we consider the psychology of being fat.

If you answered “Yes” to any one of the previous questions, understanding the psychology of being fat and changing the focus of your thinking may prove very helpful.

We need to start with how we THINK about being fat. Whether you are currently overweight or currently thin (not overweight) at the present time, we all need to take a moment to examine our focus and thoughts about being fat.

Please note we used the word “currently” regarding your situation.  This is because no matter what your current physical condition may be, your life and body condition can change in a comparatively short period of time for any number of reasons.

This was especially the case with one young lady in particular.  She was thin and fit all her life and always considered fat persons as lesser people, lacking in the higher qualities she was so richly blessed with.  But after graduation from high school, things drastically changed for her.  She experienced difficulties with her thyroid and, as a result, she gained over 100 lbs. in just three months.   She has now joined the ranks of the “lesser ones”, as she called them.

If you consider yourself as a “fat” individual and you have the desire to start a new life, you need to start with your mental attitude and focus.  Start examining your own views of other fat people and your attitude toward yourself.

Take a good honest look at your priorities in life: where you are, who are you and where you want to go.  And most of all, examine the “why” you want to get there.

Here are some initial questions you should consider:

  • Is your goal to lose weight temporary or permanent?
  • Why do you want to lose weight?
  • Are you being pressured to lose weight?
  • How much weight do you want to lose?
  • How will you measure your progress? By a scale or dress size?
  • What will you do after you have lost the weight?
  • Are you concerned about what others think about you?
  • Are you trying to impress anyone with your weight loss?
  • Are you under a physician’s care to guide you?

These are only some of the initial questions regarding your desire to lose weight.

We will also need to examine the mental attitude that may prove productive in addressing any thinking processes that prevent you from reaching your desired goals.  We can start with the negatives.

How To Survive As A Single Woman

Know Yourself First

“The more you know yourself, the more you will understand others, and the more you will attract others to you.” JR

Oh, we know the simple rule that we all grew up with in describing the Nature of Women; we think of “sugar and spice and everything nice.”

However, as any woman will tell you, “Life is not a platter of baked goods” rather it is a hot grill of steaming difficulties and challenges.

Very few women get to the realization in life and admit that they have to learn how to know themselves better. This is a very important thing to do and I recognize this is not a very common practice.

The sooner you accomplish this task, the better results you will have in life. You will have more wisdom. More control of your relationships and feelings.

The more you know yourself, the more you sharpen your abilities to overcome difficult times, navigate the turbulent river of life with more assertiveness and focus.

Knowing yourself is the first step towards achieving your goals and happiness.

How to Know What You Want

One day a girlfriend invited me to go shopping with her. I really had no time for girlfriends, but I accepted.

No problem. First, she wanted to buy a tie for a male friend. We went to ten different stores, looked at more than 100 ties, and ended up not buying any!

Later that day she was hungry, so we went to a restaurant to have dinner. When she got the menu, she just couldn’t make up her mind what to order.

I gave her some suggestions and finally she decided on one entrée; when it was served, she was not happy with her decision and only ate half.

In addition to that, she made sure the waiter knew she wasn’t happy.

How do you think I felt after that experience with her that day?

Exhausted! Needless to say, I never went out with her again! End of story.

Are you losing friends and relationships because you just can’t make up your mind? If we don’t know in advance all these little details about yourself, your likes and dislikes, when the moment comes you are going to feel lost; you are going to irritate your loved ones and friends, and this will affect you adversely. Don’t let it happen to you.

Now, let’s see the opposite example:

Imagine going out with your significant other. You go to a restaurant. When you see the menu, your eyes will rove exactly to what you want and you’ll order in seconds.

The food might not be what you expected, but you eat it with no complaints. You eat it all and display complete satisfaction.

Will he be impressed with your "decision making process?" Yes!

Will he be pleased you didn’t nag and embarrassed him at the dinner table? Yes! Will he be inclined to ask you out again? Yes!

Or, let’s say you are shopping with your husband. Instead of making him wait for hours in the store or in the car (because you don’t know what you want), you complete your shopping in seconds, getting exactly what you need.

If you can’t find what you want, you just remind him you care about his time and maybe go on another occasion by yourself. Will your husband appreciate your gesture of concern and praise you? Yes! Will he trust in you for future events? Yes! Will he be aware that you care about his time? Yes.

I know these are little things and everyday chores; but if you don’t act correctly and wisely in small things, soon they will become big things and life becomes unbearable for both of you.

It is my goal in this chapter to help you get to know yourself better in every possible way. Know your taste in food likes and dislikes with your clothes, what type of friends you want to be with, what you are looking for in a relationship, etc. so when the moment comes, you are an expert in your likes and dislikes. You will act with confidence and self-assurance.

All your senses will be ready to assist almost in a perfect way. People will trust in you and rely on you, because you are assertive and secure in yourself.

You know who you are, what you want, and best of all, know where you are going. This is one of the greatest assets you can possess.

The more you know yourself, the more you will understand others, and the more you will attract others to you.

              4 Steps to Start the Process

Remember that you can make changes anytime in your life. If you are a teenager, a mature person or a woman in her fifties or sixties…it doesn’t matter; you can start this process. It’s never too late to perfect yourself and regain control of your life.

To do this, you are going to have a personal conversation with yourself. Please find a tranquil place. Take a pen and paper and start writing.

First: You are going to write about yourself. Start questioning everything about yourself. What type of person you would like to become? What things you like to be surrounded by. Write about your feelings-likes and dislikes. The more questions you ask yourself, the more you will get to know yourself better. Answer them with all honesty so you can have the correct picture of who you are and what you would like to become.

Second: Go to another page and write about your clothes. Your likes and dislikes. Make a list of everything you like and a list of everything you don’t like. Clothes are a big part of who you are. Make sure how you present yourself to others. Do you want to be conservative, rowdy, modern, exotic? Decide what you want.

Third: Make a list of what kind of friends you would like to have. Make another list of people you should not be hanging around. It will be good to be friends with achievers. Choose people with a positive attitude. Remember that friends will influence you for the good or for the bad. Choose well.

Your friends will also reflect on your personality. Here we have some examples of questions you should ask yourself:

  1. Do I understand why I am here on this earth?
  2. Am I willing to make changes?
  3. Do I have an open mind?
  4. What do I need to do to be happier?
  5. What type of person would I like to become?
  6. What do I really want in life?
  7. Do I want to study…?
  8. Do I want to get married?
  9. What is my favorite food?
  10. What type of relationships do I want?
  11. How many children do I want?
  12. What are my main likes and dislikes?
  13. How am I going to react if…?
  14. What religion do I want and why?
  15. How much am I willing to give to a man, a friend, and why?
  16. What do I want to do to contribute to society?

Fourth: Make a list of the kind of person you would like to spend the rest of your life with. Make it long and very clear to you.

Make sure that at the end of the page you understand and have a complete idea or conclusion of what you like, what you want and, most importantly, what is good for you.

Remember, the goal here is to find the right partner (or to keep the one you already have) to build your home, your future and your family.

As an example, I am going to give you a list I got ( I asked close to fifty young and old women) of the type of man women want and the relationship they would like to have, so every time you meet a possible prospect, you will compare him with the list.

If he qualifies for most of the questions, then you know it is a safe way to go and you can continue feeding the relationship.

If you can’t match him with any of your answers, you know he has to go. No matter if he looks like and acts like an angel with you at that moment, you know he is not good for you.

(It is not going to work out. Don't fool yourself!)

Then, you can make a decision “early on” (based on the knowledge of your answers on your list) to break it up before it is too late and your heart is emotionally involved.
