- NLP 101: What is NLP? Part 1

What is NLP; Why Should You Care?
What made me so gaga over three letters?

So what is Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)? First, it’s a mouthful (tee hee :P). Here are a few definitions:


1) NLP in a nutshell
A pragmatic self-help method that focuses on what works, and has lots of useful exercises and philosophies that help you become a better person, increase your influence and achieve your life goals.


2) NLP according to its’ co-founder Richard Bandler
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is an attitude and a methodology which leaves behind a trail of techniques.

The most accurate description in my opinion, but which is a real mindbender and took me a few years of research and experience to get the ‘Aha!’ experience.


3) NLP for the people-workers
A powerful bag of tricks that allows you to help people change themselves through its mental models, patterns of influence and techniques of change.

Instead of giving you generals, NLP has many step-by-step specifics, which is great when practitioners recognize the principles so they know how not to go step-by-step, and terrible when practitioners don’t know the principles and follow the steps to the letter or bend it all out of shape.


4) NLP for the hardcore
An excellent meta-tool that allows you to study the genius of people with precision and create models based on those studies for anyone else to re-create that genius (before the NLP trolls come along, I don’t mean that literally).

A meta-tool is something that allows you to look above and beyond what it’s looking at, take it apart and put it back together again.

A meta-tool, and nothing more, a fantastic meta-tool, that has left behind miles of techniques and models (and books, CDs and videos) along the way.


5) NLP for Everybody
Want to become a more effective influencer of people? Build connection and closeness faster and easier? Be really good at presentations? Know how to select your words to avoid the deadly ones and pick the seductive ones?


Want to crawl inside people’s heads and understand what makes them tick? What are their hot buttons and hot ooh la la hoooot buttons? Maybe you want to understand what makes you tick and where your hooooot hot hot buttons are?


Want to know why you haven’t been achieving your goals? Why that one change hasn’t stuck? And why others have? Want to know how to make changes stick easier? Want to know what are the ingredients of a goal that works?


Want to know what’s important to you? Want to clear internal obstacles? Remove emotional blocks? Want to align your whole being so you’re a walking talking sexy force to contend with? Want to become the person you’ve always known you wanted to be but didn’t know how?


You can.


Disclaimer 1: But there’s no guarantee. With all the massive NLP and non-NLP resources out there, you can learn, do and be a lot. A lot. But it doesn’t promise to be easy, and you do need to put in either time, effort or research (or all) to gain the knowledge, experience and skills to make you a Super Duper NLPer.

Disclaimer 2: Unlike what many practitioners would like you to believe with their talk, swagger, or swarmy hairstyles, NLP is not the be-all and end-all answer to life, the universe and everything. It won’t make you absolutely invincible, irresistable to all humans and animals, and swing the lottery in your favor. Too bad for all of us. But it will give you a useful set of tools to help you get along better in life.

- Sulforaphane... get to know it.. it will save you!

Sulforaphane is an anticancer, antidiabetic, and antimicrobial compound that can be obtained by eating cruciferous vegetables such as brussel sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, bok choy, kale, collards, broccoli sprouts, chinese broccoli, broccoli raab, kohlrabi, mustard, turnip, radish, rocket, and watercress. The enzymemyrosinase transforms glucoraphanin (a glucosinolate) into sulforaphane upon damage to the plant (such as from chewing). The young sprouts of broccoli and cauliflower are particularly rich in glucoraphanin.

Optimal dosage has not yet been determined, but some doctors recommend 200 - 400 mcg of sulforaphane daily from broccoli-sprout extracts. Sulforaphane and dietary consumption of cruciferous vegetables are known to affect the action of drug-metabolizing enzymes. Although no side effects or direct drug interactions have been reported as of 2008, people taking prescription drugs are advised to consult a doctor before taking sulforaphane or broccoli-sprout extracts.

Sulforaphane seems to protect skin against UV radiation damage, and thus potentially against cancer, when applied topically.

Pass the Antioxidants, Please
When your blood sugar is chronically high, it can damage the cells of your heart, eyes, kidneys, and nerves. But in a recent petri-dish study, adding sulforaphane to a mix of blood vessel cells and glucose cut oxidation by as much as 73 percent. More research is needed to see if sulforaphane in the diet is as protective. But we already know that the compound is a super cancer fighter.

- Don't Make These Seven Body Language Mistakes.

When you talk you aren’t just communicating with your words. In fact, you are communicating with your whole body.
According to research done by Albert Mehrabian, currently Professor Emeritus of psychology at UCLA, words are only 7 percent of your communication.

The rest is your voice tonality (38 percent) and your body language at 55 percent.

These numbers may vary depending upon the topic, situation and how something is communicated (for instance, talking over the phone is obviously different from talking face to face) but body language is still a very important part of communication.

Three good reasons to improve your body language:
  • Improve your communication skills. If you improve your body language you can get your thoughts across in a more effective way. You can create a connection to another person more easily. When using more powerful and appropriately balanced body language your communication skills become better and more focused.
  • Emotions are linked to your body language. Emotions work backwards too. If you feel good you’ll smile. If you force yourself to smile you’ll feel good too. If you feel tired or down you might sit slumped down. If you sit slumped down you’ll feel more tired and negative. Just try to sit straight up for 5 minutes and feel the difference in energy from half-lying in your chair.
  • Increase your attractiveness. It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. A better posture and a more enthusiastic and focused body language will make anyone more attractive. And not just in a sexual way but also when talking to new friends or in job interviews and business meetings.
These 7 common body language mistakes is a mix of deeper things that control our body language. And a few tips where you manually correct and stop reinforcing certain old habits.

1. Not keeping your emotions and focus in the right place.
The biggest part of your body language is how you feel. When you feel open, positive and confident that will come through in your body language. You’ll smile and laugh more and gesture confidently and openly.
So to improve your body language in a consistent way in your day to day life the major part consists of improving your life. For example to sleep enough, to eat right, to work out and to get the things you want to get done handled. When you live the life you want to live, when are going about your daily life being your “best self” then you tend to feel good or great. And that comes through in your body language.

As expected, no quick fixes will solve your problem. They can help though.

You can for instance change how you feel temporarily and then build on that feeling by acting as you would like to feel. Once example would be to take kind actions towards someone even though you might feel envious. And then build on that kind feeling your kind action generates. Here are few more ways to quickly change how you feel and a few tips on how to turn a bad day around to a good one.

2. Becoming too self-conscious.
To keep your feelings, thoughts and body language in the right place or to make a change you need to monitor yourself. However, over-doing it will quickly turn your ambitions into feeling self-conscious and nervous. If your inner dialogue goes ”Am I doing it right? Am I sitting right? Am I walking too slow? Or too fast?” then you are feeling worried and anxious. That comes through in your body language.
So you need to learn to check your feelings/thoughts or the part of your body language you want to change once in a while. And learn to not let this desire to change spiral out of control into babbling thought patterns in your head that just go around and around and make you feel bad. More on this in the next section.

3. Taking yourself or life too seriously.
Generally, taking yourself or things too seriously isn’t a great idea for several reasons. It can cause you to get offended and angry or resentful for the smallest negative thing someone says or does. It can make it hard for you to let things go and instead you let them fester. It can make tasks a whole lot harder to get done as you might see everyday life as a bitter struggle. It can help you reinforce and strengthen victim thinking.
This isn’t good for your interactions. And it isn’t good for your body language as your negative feelings will come through to others.
It’s also not a helpful attitude to have if you want to change your body language as it can make you take this challenge all too seriously. That can cause you to get upset with yourself when you make a mistake. And make you think so much about the challenge that your thoughts get stuck in self-conscious loops.
A few tips for adopting a lighter attitude towards yourself and life are to not identify so much with your thoughts and emotions, to realize that you are not you ego and to develop an abundance mentality. You can read more about those three suggestions in Lighten Up!.

4. Moving too fast and fidgety.
If you move too fast you can feel stressed. The stress can then reinforce how fast you move. Or make you more fidgety. Moving fast and fidgeting around can make people around you feel stressed, nervous, distracted and uncomfortable.
Shaking your leg while seated or tapping your fingers against the table rapidly are two fidgety habits. Touching your face a lot is another one.
Instead of fidgeting with your hands and scratching your face you can use them to communicate what you are trying to say. Use your hands to describe something or to add weight to a point you are trying to make. But don’t use them to much or it might become distracting. And don’t let your hands flail around, use them with some control.
If you have a tick or feel fidgety then learning to relax more can help you out. You can, for instance, become more relaxed by just moving slower. This will also make you seem more calm and confident.
Or you can weed out your habit of touching your face simply by keeping it in mind and avoiding it. There might also be larger issues in your life that you need to resolve to decrease or remove your bad habit.
You can find 36 tips for decreasing stress in your life in this article.

5. Not keeping your posture in mind.
From time to time that is. You shouldn’t make mistake #2 and getting obsessed with it. Sitting or standing up straight in a relaxed manner with your head up has a few benefits:
  • It creates positive emotions such as alertness and feeling focused.
  • It can help you with first impressions as it makes you seem more interesting/attractive.
  • It can sometimes help you avoid pain in your back, shoulders etc.
6. Closing up.
Being open and conveying that you are open is one of the most important parts of communication. If you start to close up or walk into an interaction closed up then it will be hard to establish a genuine connection. If you feel a bit wary and closed up inside then it will not only stop you from being open. It will also keep you from relaxing, smiling and laughing and having fun.
A few common ways to close up is to:
  • Cross your arms and/or legs. You have probably already heard you shouldn’t cross your arms as it might make you seem defensive or guarded. This goes for your legs too. Keep your arms and legs open. Taking up space by for example sitting or standing with your legs apart a bit signals self-confidence and that you are comfortable in your own skin.
  • Not keeping eye contact. If there are several people you are talking to, give them all some eye contact to create a better connection and see if they are listening. Keeping too much eye-contact might creep people out. Giving no eye-contact might make you seem insecure. If you are not used to keeping eye-contact it might feel a little hard or scary in the beginning but keep working on it and you’ll get used to it.
  • Hold your drink at your chest. Don’t hold your drink in front of your chest. In fact, don’t hold anything in front of your heart as it will make you seem guarded and distant. Lower it and hold it beside your leg instead.
Closing up often comes from feeling nervous or insecure. You may in some way perceive the people you are meeting as a threat.
Perhaps you’re afraid that they will mock you, not like you or that you will make a fool of yourself in some way. A few tips to a shake these thoughts and feelings out of yourself is to:
  • Belly breathe. This is one of my favourite tips to make myself feel more relaxed and calm in just a minute or two.
  • Assume rapport. Just before a meeting, you just think that you’ll be meeting a good friend. Then you’ll naturally slip into a more comfortable, confident and enjoyable emotional state and frame of mind.
    This also helps you and the other people to set a good frame for the interaction. A frame is always set at the start of an interaction. It might be a nervous and stiff frame, a formal and let’s-get-to-the-point kind of frame or perhaps a super relaxed one. The thing is that the frame that is set in the beginning of the conversation is often one that may stay on for a while. First impressions last. With some practise - to remove inner resistance towards this idea and get you to feel more like you know what you’re doing – you may become pretty surprised at how effective assuming rapport is. I was.
  • Experiment. Have a look at a few more ways to handle nervousness. And a few tips for putting a stop to anxiety. Try a few of them plus the ones above to find which one(s) fit you the best.
7. Holding yourself back.
So, let’s say you know most of the things above already. It isn’t exactly rocket science. So why are you still not using those tips - or tips from somewhere else - to change and experiment with how you communicate?
One big reason may be that you are holding yourself back.
You may hold yourself back from becoming more expressive over all or, for instance, with your hands. Or you may hold yourself back completely from taking up more space or making more eye-contact.
Holding yourself back may be because of a few different reasons. The most common one is probably the one already described in the previous mistake: a fear of what others may think, say or do.
Yes, people may react negatively. And yes, you might exaggerate your body language a bit too much at first by for instance sitting with your legs almost ridiculously far apart.
However, people aren’t looking at you as much as you may think. They are like you. They have their own stuff to think and worry about. If you experiment with your body language, then sure, you might seem a little strange sometimes. But most of the time people will probably not even notice that you have changed something. They aren’t standing around watching your every move all day long.
Also, keep in mind that if you for example are normally not that expressive then what might feel weird to you isn’t necessarily that weird to others. It’s just you comparing the old way to the new way in your own head. It’s just you getting used to being more expressive.
If you change your body language for the better, most people will only react in a more positive way towards you. Because as mentioned in mistake #1, how you live your life and how you feel comes through in your body language. And if you feel great then that comes through. And emotions are contagious. So now, people you interact with feel better too. And just about everyone wants to feel positive emotions.
So, yeah, you may look like fool a few times if want to change. But that’s OK. It’s a lot better than going around all of your life and holding yourself back. And if you don’t take yourself and life too seriously – mistake #3 – then your fear of looking like a fool and being rejected in some way will decrease.

- Real Productivity

“Productivity” isn’t about about making more widgets per hour or being efficient and organized for its own anal-retentive sake. Real productivity means getting faster at moving the crap off your desk so you can have room to focus on the creative work that only you can do.

- What to Expect When Getting an MRI


When a disease affects your nerves, joints or other, more delicate parts of the body, your doctor needs to detect subtle changes that may indicate a serious problem. In these cases, he or she often turns to magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, to gain a detailed glimpse inside. Here's what you need to know about getting an MRI.
During an MRI, you are usually placed on a flat table and moved into the core of a large machine. The procedure can take quite a long time, ranging from about 10 minutes to a full hour for a comprehensive scan.
The basic idea behind an MRI is that certain atoms in your body move in response to a strong magnetic force. So, inside the MRI machine are strong magnets, which send powerful magnetic waves through your body. You can't feel them, but this force causes most of the hydrogen atoms inside your body to line up, while a few stubborn ones don't budge. A particular radio frequency is then sent through your body that causes these stragglers to spin. When the radio frequency is turned off, the atoms stop spinning and release their extra energy. A metal coil measures this released energy and since atoms in different parts of the body spin at different rates, a computer uses this data to create a detailed picture of all of your tissues.

Because the picture it creates is so detailed, an MRI can be used to diagnose an array of medical problems, including: multiple sclerosis, tumors in the brain, joint injuries, tendonitis, strokes and even some infections of the spine or joints.
Many times a doctor will first inject a special dye into the part of the body he wants to examine. This dye changes the way atoms spin in a magnetic field, making the different tissues in your body appear even more detailed on an MRI screen.
The MRI itself is incredibly safe. However, because it is essentially a big magnet, metal objects cannot be in the same room as an MRI machine. Often MRI centers have very special rules about whom and what can go inside the room to prevent something from "turning into a missile," says Dr. Robert Zimmerman, the executive vice-chair of radiology at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical Center.
These rules include prohibiting metal objects that may be inside you, such as pacemakers, some aneurysm clips (devices meant to secure a weakened blood vessel) and some orthopedic and dental implants. People with these devices cannot go near an MRI for fear that the magnet will cause them to move around inside your body.
Additionally, the MRI machine is big, noisy and patients can feel very confined during the procedure. Newer models tend to be a bit wider, but still, "about five to ten percent of my patients cannot tolerate them," says Zimmerman.
An MRI is generally not performed on women within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. As always, if there is any reason to suspect that you may be pregnant, be sure to tell your doctor.

- 7 Essentials For Living Your Fullest Potential

Most of us have heard something like this before: “You have a lot of potential,” or in school, “You have so much potential, work hard and you might realize it.”
The only problem is no one seems to tell us where to start or how to achieve our fullest potential. After all, potential is such an ominous term. You can’t measure it. You can’t quantify it. You can’t define potential.
Even though we may not ever be able to measure our potential, we can develop habits to help us grow. Here are 7 essentials I’ve found to ensure that you are the best possible version of yourself:
1. Have an open mind. Everyone talks about how important having an open mind is. But what they don’t say is how much having an open mind can affect your potential. A lot of opportunities pass us by because we’re stuck in a limited pattern of thinking, or we’re afraid to take a risk. If there’s no actual real (or perceived) danger, take the risk. The worse that can happen is you’ll look silly. Having an open mind is the first step to reaching your potential, because it gives you the willingness to take risks. We’ll never be the best we can be by playing it safe. As the saying goes: “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always be where you’ve always been.”
...

2. Seek out new perspectives and contexts. The more perspectives you seek out, the more you push the boundaries of your mind. If you only focus on one thing, you’ll likely become an expert before long. But if you stay inside your box, you’ll be like a stiff bridge, waiting to collapse when the first hurricane comes through. A well built bridge has give; it has a certain amount of flexibility to it.
Try to push the borders of your thinking. Here are some suggestions:
  • Get inside someone else’s mind. Pick their brain and try to see things from their point of view.
  • Listen to music that you never would have dreamed choosing. Give it a chance. If you don’t like it, you can always turn it off. I know there are some types of music I can’t stand, no matter how much I try to give it a chance.
  • Change your routine. If you buy the same jelly donut, the same coffee, and drive the same way to work everyday, try something different. Be adventurous. Try the bear claw. Drink blueberry tea instead. Take the scenic route home.
  • Learn a new language. Learning a different language forces you to think in that language. It pushes your mind to make new connections between ideas, phrases, and thought patterns that never would have been pushed.
  • Travel. What better way to stretch your mind than by completely immersing yourself in another culture?
3. Ask for what you want. Everyone’s heard the saying “the squeaky wheel gets the grease.” It never surprises me how many people fail to get what they want because they’re too afraid to ask for it. Their fear of rejection and embarrassment holds them back from asking for help. In order to get what you want, you have to have the courage to ask others for assistance. That doesn’t mean you mooch off of other people. It means you have the wisdom that by working together, you can accomplish far more than you could alone.
4. Help other people succeed. The best way to reach your fullest potential is to help other people as much as possible. When it’s your time to ask for help, other people will be more inclined to help you in return.
If you find yourself falling short of your best, it’s likely because you’re not giving enough of yourself. The more you give of yourself to others, the more value you create. The more value you create, the more other people will want to give value back to you.
By helping others as much as possible, you create a wide network of support. Most great people you’ll meet will tell you they didn’t achieve greatness alone. They had many mentors, and they stood on the shoulders of giants.
5. Think different. You won’t be surprised to find that those who have reached their greatest potential have often been the most prolific. They aren’t afraid to step outside of the norm. In fact, most of these people would consider the norm as something to vehemently avoid. Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, and Ralph Waldo Emerson (to name a few) were considered radical thinkers. Now they’re just considered geniuses.
Thinking different doesn’t just mean intentionally going against the grain, though. It doesn’t mean swimming upstream blindly, just because you want to revolt against authority. What it does mean is having the courage to express your individuality. It’s in developing and unabashedly accepting your unique strengths and talents that you’ll reach your highest potential.
6. Work smart, not hard. By working smart you can save a ridiculous amount of time you would have otherwise been spinning your wheels. Working smart is about paying attention and taking the time to do your research. It isn’t, however, obsessing over getting every little detail figured out. That’s obsession.
Working smart means modeling other experienced people and doing your homework. It’s the difference between first watching an experienced mechanic, and then haphazardly trying to wing rebuilding an engine. Working hard at that point becomes irrelevant when you don’t have a clue to what you’re doing.
7. Change your auto-response. When you want to do something, don’t think about it, just do it. Many of our opportunities in life pass us by simply because we can’t make a decision. We’re wrapped up in an effort to figure out all the facts and gain enough experience before we take the plunge.
The truth is, most experience comes from making things up as you go along. You’ll inevitably make mistakes and achieve less than perfect results. If you can develop a keen ability to ignore fear of the unknown, you can take years off your learning curve.
Instead of thinking “I don’t know,” think “I’ll figure it out.”

- Productivity Tip #1


Your productivity system is an integral part of your workflow. Gone are the days of having a handful of simple tasks that you could keep in your head. Nowadays, work is multifaceted, complicated and even overwhelming. That’s why you need a reliable system to get it all out of your head and get it organized. It can be as simple as scribbling down a to-do list for those with a small workload, to having a complex computer-based system encompassing several tools. Contrary to the general consensus, when it really matters there are only two rules you need to follow for getting a system that won’t let you down.
Firstly, while it seems like many people would rather spend all their time tweaking and playing around with their latest system, when it really matters we just want to be able to get stuff done quickly. We don’t want to spend several minutes (yes, even that small a timescale matters here) working through a system to get to our list of projects or tick a task off as complete. As David Allen says, if it takes more than a couple of seconds to do something you simply won’t do it.
Secondly, the system must not have more features or complications than it needs. If you don’t need that fancy little feature on your productivity software than it’s merely bloat. Most likely you will feel compelled to use it because it’s there, and even if you resist the temptation it’s still a distraction. I find Moleskines are a good example of this. If the sheer quality of them helps your productivity then that’s great, but it certainly doesn’t help me. The quality and expense gets in the way. To be fully productive I need to be able to scribble, doodle and rip pages out as I please. I don’t want to feel guilty for desecrating a Moleskine so a cheap notepad that won’t fall apart is ideal for my needs.
Your system needs to be as painless and intuitive as possible. It should enable you to be productive, rather than being an obstacle. My weekly planner is a good example of this. Though flicking through a few pages to get to what I want was quick, it was even quicker to have all that information condensed onto one page.

- The Secret of the World

"What you resist persists." Carl Yung (1875-1961)

The reason that what you resist persists is because if you're resisting something, you're saying, "No, I don't want this thing, because it makes me feel this way - the way I am feeling right now." So you're putting out a really strong emotion of, "I really don't like this feeling," and then it comes racing toward you.
Resistance to anything is like trying to change the outside pictures after they have been transmitted. It's a futile pursuit. You have to go within and emit new signal with your thoughts  and feelings to create the new pictures.

As you resist what has appeared, you are adding more energy and more power to those pictures you don't like, and you are bringing more of them at a furious rate. The event or circumstances can only get bigger, because that is the law of the Universe.

Mother Teresa was brilliant. She said, "I will never attend an anti-war rally. If you have a peace rally, invite me." She knew. She understood The Secret. Look what she manifested in the world.
It's OK to notice what you don't want, because it gives you contrast to say, "This is what I do want." But the fact is, the more you talk about what you don't want, or talk about how bad it is, read about that all the time, and then say how terrible it is -- well, you're creating more of that. - (Jack Canfield)

Learn to become still, and to take your attention away from what you  don't want, and all the emotional charge around it, and place the attention on what you wish to experience.... - (Michael Bernard Beckwith)
 
Energy flows where attention goes!
I always say, when the voice and the vision on the inside become more profound, clear, and loud than the opinions on the outside, you've mastered your life!
- (Dr. John Demartini)

* Praise and bless everything in the world, and you will dissolve negativity and discord and align yourself with the highest frequency -- love.


 

- Burn the Boats!

Commitment takes courage. Many times we are content to stand on the sidelines and just watch as the game is being played. It’s safer there; but there’s no action and no opportunity for success, or growth.
Sometimes we just need to jump into it and see what happens. Sometimes we just need to burn the boats.
The ancient Greek warriors understood this idea. These Greeks possessed an unwavering attitude to victory and commitment. When the Grecian armies landed on their enemy’s shore, the first order the commanders gave was “Burn the boats.”
These commanders knew the power of motivation and necessity. With no boats to retreat to, the army had to be successful in order to survive. As the soldiers watched the boats burn, they knew there was no turning back – there would be no surrendering.
In our lives we need to do everything possible to make good decisions. We may not always be right. But if we follow a process of gathering the facts, analyzing the risks, and creating a viable plan based on the information available, more times than not we will make the proper decision.
However, fear can keep us from moving forward. Consider the missed opportunities in your life. Think about the relationships you didn’t pursue, or end. Think about the career opportunities you allowed to pass by because you were more comfortable with the status quo. Think about the dreams and goals you once had, but are now stuffed down into a seemingly unreachable place. Imagine if you had burn some boats along the way.
A leap of faith is just that – a leap from what you know and trust and to the unknown. Frequently, growth lives on the landing spot where you leap. The question then becomes, “do I leap”; “how do I know I know if I’m following my heart’s desire and not just making a stupid mistake?”
The answer is you really don’t know, for sure. The Greeks didn’t know, for sure, if they would be victorious, but there were extremely motivated because there was no other course; no other way. They didn’t think about the “what ifs.” they only thought about how to prevail and win.
You have the same choice in front of you. Perhaps there is a book you have always wanted to write, or a business you have always wanted to start; or someone you would like to approach and begin a conversation.
Safety nets are good because they can protect you from pain and injury, but they can also keep you from really putting it on the line. The suggestion here is not to do your due diligence or act in a rash manner, but rather once you have completed your discernment process and your inner voice; your inner wisdom, says, “Go!” You go!
Remove the obstacles and the excuses. Storm the shore with the attitude you will be successful. Set fire to the boat that took you there and watch as it lists in the water and then disappears.
Turn around and look forward; look ahead. Leave your fear and regret at the bottom of the water with the boat and begin moving in the direction you want to go. Surrender to no one or nothing and fully commit. You will get to where you want to go. You will be victorious, too.
