Does it seem that only people like Stephen Hawking, Steven Spielberg, and Steve Jobs use their brainpower efficiently?
So stupendous do their talents appear to the rest of us, that we tend to look upon such geniuses as divinely gifted, endowed with super powers.
But… what if you could develop superior mental powers similar to those from the greatest minds of mankind?
Dr. Win Wenger’s 30 years of study shows that genius is not a result of genetic superiority, but a pattern of mental conditioning.
This means genius is within your grasp, and you can prove it to yourself during the upcoming free Genius Code Mindfest.
What would it mean for you if you saw increases in your IQ, memory, learning capacity, mental quickness, intuition, and creativity?
We believe the possibilities are endless.

“Always forgive your enemies – nothing annoys them so much.” ~Oscar Wilde
When was the last time someone really pissed you off, hurt your feelings or shocked you (in a negative way) with their behavior?
People can be cruel–let’s face it, some of them are downright assholes who bring a serious element of toxicity into your life. They say and do the meanest, most damaging things. I have been personally shocked on more than one occasion at the blatant rudeness of some people.
(This is especially the case when we’re talking about narcissists!)
When it happens to you…
Having been a victim of unkind treatment, you’re probably reeling with anger. You feel like forgiveness is the least suitable response you can give.
Surprisingly, however, forgiveness is the quickest and most lasting way to get over the anger and hurt! But how can you just forgive someone who has hurt you so?
Achieve true forgiveness and gain peace with these approaches:
Confront the issue. It’s very easy to want to block negative situations out of your consciousness, but that approach may be causing more anger than you know!
Take a hard look at the issue. Say aloud, “This happened to me.” Doing that may cause some of the feelings to resurface. But when you’re done crying, you’ll likely be free from tears going forward.
What happened was a thing of the past. It happened, and you’re still here to tell the tale. Is it really worth affecting your peace of mind? It’s probably time to move on with your life!
Consider your involvement. Perhaps you didn’t consciously trigger a reaction from the other person. But there could very well be something that affected them. They just chose to address it in an unhealthy and unhelpful way!
It’s really not about playing the blame game. One human being has no right to offend or hurt another. If you were offended, take a look in the mirror before deciding how to deal with it. You’ll likely recall scenarios where you may have wronged someone as well!
Wear the offender’s shoes. Consider how it must feel for the person who now realizes that they hurt you considerably. After the initial emotion passes, they start to feel regret for their actions.
It’s always a good idea to try and switch roles. See it from their viewpoint. If you’re yearning for someone’s forgiveness, you’ll likely rejoice when you finally get it.
Consider the impact of anger on your life. When you hold on to the anger and resentment, it starts to eat away at you. Whether or not you know it, your happiness ends up being a fraction of what it could be. Anger negatively affects your quality of life!
Do you find yourself being short-tempered with loved ones and friends? You may feel your reaction is justified. But if you think about it, you might see that you overreacted.
Take some time to consider why you’re so angry or maybe sad. Grudges almost always bring and sustain negative emotions that can affect you long-term.
Once you try these approaches, you’ll experience the benefits of forgiving those who offended you. You’ll see how useless it is to allow the negative emotions of holding on to your hurts to drag down your quality of life. In fact, you’ll likely want to go back and forgive everyone who has ever hurt you!
Learn to freely forgive others and give your mind the rest it deserves for a peaceful, truly happy life.
If you’re old enough to be reading this, you’re probably old enough to remember the USDAfood pyramid. That colorful triangle divided into sections showed the recommended amounts for each food group, and guided generations of Americans through making healthier food choices.
Although it was eventually replaced by the new and improved MyPlate diagram, it can still teach you a lot about communications. Consider the pyramid when you’re trying to develop and share an important message.
Pyramid Lessons for Developing a Message
Use everyday examples. Any communication becomes more vivid and interesting if it’s tied to real life. Explain $10 to your child by telling them how much pizza it would buy.
Quantify your statements. While the figures sometimes changed over the years, the pyramid always gave a recommended number of servings for each food group. Numbers provide clarity and make any claims sound more convincing.
Divide items into categories.It’s easier to remember a long list of facts if they’re sorted into logical groups. Maybe your monthly department reports would look better if you added sub-headers to the format.
Draw pictures. Illustrations sometimes have greater impact than words. Make your correspondence livelier by including images that will grab people’s attention. Take your own photos or browse online for images in the public domain.
Simplify information. With complex subjects like nutrition, it’s easy to get lost in vast amounts of material. Pick out a few key points to focus on.
Offer additional details. Make it easy for people to learn more. Provide opportunities to ask questions and read further.
Try color coding. Streamline your presentation by conveying information through color choices. It can help you say more in fewer words.
Write lists. People joke about lists but they still read them. Turn some of your best content into Top 10 lineups.
Keep it brief. Package some content into short blurbs. Be ready with an elevator pitch and daily tips.
Pyramid Lessons for Sharing a Message
Encourage one change at time. Nutrition experts urged people to fill at least half their plate with vegetables and fruit before moving on to discussing other habits. Ask an employee to work on a single positive change rather than overwhelming them with multiple demands.
Create sub-messages. The pyramid was accompanied by different materials for everyone from preschoolers to health care professionals. Take your audience into account.
Consult experts. Physicians and farmers contributed to the food pyramid. When you’re coordinating your own projects, reach out for specialized knowledge and diverse views.
Recruit partners. Similarly, the government invited schools, community groups and other organizations to spread the word about making more nutritious food choices. Think about who you can work with to become more effective.
Expect good things to spread. You may be surprised to learn that even though the USDA food pyramid was the most famous of its kind, it was Sweden that came up with the concept. Promising ideas travel far.
Be open to improvements. As mentioned, the pyramid thrived for almost 20 years before getting upgraded into the new MyPlate. However successful a venture may be, something better may come along. Welcome changes that lead to even more outstanding communications.
Remember the food pyramid when you’re trying to persuade your boss about a new idea or encourage your kids to do their homework. It will come in handy when you have valuable information you want to share with others so they can apply it to their own lives.
“QueenBeeing” can best be described as a lifestyle that begins with understanding and employing the art of being your true, authentic self and of manifesting the life of which you’ve always dreamed–but it’s also so much more.
If you’re sick of eating like a caveman on the Paleo Diet, you may be interested in the Werewolf Diet that celebrities like Madonna and Demi Moore are supposedly following. (No, seriously!)
This new fad is based on the theory that the moon pulls the water in our bodies the same way it governs ocean tides. While this might be a little more poetic than factual, followers are advised to eat based on moon cycles. It’s basically a one day fast plus vegetables with various plans for every lunar phase.
A brief summary of the Werewolf Diet, courtesy of U.S. News:
“The only thing that makes sense about this diet is that if you have a very full moon, you may need to trim down,”says registered dietitian Bonnie Taub-Dix, who’s also an Eat+Run blogger. “Any diet that promotes fasting, cleanses or deprivation to this extent is not going to last.”
Yet advocates insist that the moon influences the water in our bodies, the same as it does the tides of the ocean. Humans are made up of about 60 percent water, and the thinking goes that when the moon is full or in a new phase, there’s a gravitational pull that affects how much water weight you gain or lose. As the website Moon Connection explains: “By fasting according to the phases of the moon, your body may respond even more powerfully by flushing excess water and toxins from your body.”
In non-werewolf speak, that translates to choosing one of two plans – the basic moon plan or extended version. The basic iteration calls for 24 hours of fasting during the full moon or new moon, when you’re permitted only water and freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juice.”
Right, and the diet’s enthusiasts say you can lose up to 6 pounds in a day. Then again, most medical experts warn you’ll lose far less, and those pounds will be water weight that you’ll gain back.
Have I tried the diet? Nope, I have not. So who am I to go around criticizing it, right? Obviously, based on this, I could not recommend that diet (though I do know a few things about weight loss!).
Exercise regularly. Stay active. Run through the woods or play a game of tennis.
Enjoy nature. Outdoor settings help to make workouts more fun. Plus, scientists have found that the color green stimulates our minds and gives us more energy.
Work out at night. Studies also show that exercising is beneficial at any time of day. If you work the late shift, find a 24 hour gym. As a bonus, there will probably be shorter lines for the equipment.
Style your hair. Heavy fur tends to be the first thing you notice about werewolves. You don’t have to go that far, but use your hair or other best assets to enhance your appearance. Instead of waiting until you lose extra pounds, visit the salon now or update your wardrobe.
Love your body. Werewolves are always rushing to strip off their clothes in public. That would get you arrested, but you can still appreciate your body and whatever shape you’re in. View losing weight as a gift to yourself rather than a punishment.
Land on your feet. Werewolves can also fall from high places without breaking stride. Develop the resilience to persevere after you make a mistake.
Howl sometimes. Sing out loud. Let musicians and stage actors know you enjoyed a great performance.
Become a hero: While werewolves were once feared, their image is changing, thanks to modern comics. Act like a hero. Perform good deeds and rescue other creatures from suffering. A virtuous life will reduce stress and emotional overeating.
Werewolf Habits That Can Inspire You to Do the Opposite
Go to bed early. Werewolves usually get into trouble when they stay out too late. Even if you never get bitten, an early and consistent bedtime will help you to stay well rested.
Manage your appetite. If you’re devouring your food, cut back on calories by eating slower. Foods high in fiber will help too.
Avoid overtraining. Feeling worn out after a nocturnal romp is one of the hardest things about being a werewolf. Fatigue and injuries could be signs that you’re pushing yourself too hard. Switch to gentler workouts to give your body more time to recover.
Consult your doctor. Werewolves are notoriously careless about making medical appointments to get those bites checked out. You can be smarter by talking with your doctor promptly about any symptoms that concern you.Enjoy moonlight and werewolf films, but stick to a sensible diet. Lifestyle changes, like eating more vegetables and exercising daily, provide a better way to manage your weight.
