It’s Time to Stand Up for Truth and Intelligence

In a time when the American news media focused on reporting facts, rather than entertaining the public, iconic broadcast journalist Walter Cronkite made a comment about American values and education that seems even more powerful today. Averred Cronkite, “”[w]hatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation.”

Indeed, as “the most trusted man in America” well understood, nothing is more costly to a democratic society than ignorance. We are seeing this on a daily basis today in the U.S. Much of the violence Americans are seeing is a product of ignorance, as is much of the rhetoric accepted by supporters of the GOP.

Donald Trump’s apparent ignorance about topics ranging from economics to international affairs has been well documented, but far more troubling is the ignorance of his followers, who do not appear to have the critical thinking skills or perhaps simply the reliable information necessary to see ignorance, lies, and twisted truths when they encounter them.

The fear mongering that Trump has succeeded in using to gain supporters can be successful only in a society governed not by information and intelligence, but by fear and ignorance. Unfortunately, the GOP’s leadership champions ignorance and distortion of fact.

When candidates make ridiculous claims such as Ben Carson’s publicly expressed view that the Pyramids of Giza were not tombs, but grain silos built by the Biblical son of Jacob to get ready for the famine in Genesis or when Donald Trump comments about Ted Cruz’s father on the basis of a report from the National Enquirer, it’s a symptom of deeper problems. Such comments would not be taken seriously by a public that was well informed and would be immediately refuted by party leadership, unless of course that leadership is itself stunningly ignorant or cynically willing to turn a deaf ear on the dangers of ignorance and lies in order to gain power.

Nor would these types of comments gain any traction if the news media uniformly called them out on the grounds that they lack verity. As it stands, only parts of the news media see their job as upholding truth.

The Washington Post clearly is one media outlet that recognizes its responsibility in the American democratic system. It just published a full-page editorial on the dangers of a Trump presidency. The newspaper notes that Mr. Trump’s ignorance, arrogance, and aggressiveness combined with his “politics of denigration and division” present a clear threat to the American democratic system.

This is correct, but the threat is really much more pernicious. The true danger to American democracy lies in a significant portion of the voting public that lacks the ability or information necessary to recognize what a threat Mr. Trump actually represents. Rather than drawing support, his wanton disregard for facts and open ignorance of the Constitution as noted by the Post should send a shiver through anyone invested in democracy.

Americans are faced with a very serious choice this November. In the past, whether Republican or Democrat, it has seemed clear that presidential candidates have shared a commitment to protecting the Constitution and democratic values, even if their specific ideas about how best to protect those things vary. It is not at all clear that Mr. Trump shares that commitment.

It’s a sad reality that the U.S. has arrived at this point, but we are here and it is time for those who support truth, facts, and intelligence–whether they are conservatives or liberals–to work hard to protect American democracy. The November election is nothing less than a vote on the future of that democratic system.

If we fail, and elect Mr. Trump, we face a very real possibility of paying that hefty price Walter Cronkite warned us to avoid. Whether it is through libraries, schools, or the media, there is nothing more important than ensuring that our society is well informed and able to recognize genuine threats to democracy, particularly when they come in the guise of claims to make America great again.

As a journalist, Mr. Cronkite recognized his most important job was not to entertain but to educate the public. As members of the Fourth Estate, journalists today need to, perhaps more than ever, recognized that their job is to protect democracy by informing the public. The Washington Post took this responsibility very seriously; one would hope that other news outlets follow their lead.

WATCH: Refocus (Getting Back on Track)

There are a lot of things going on that are demanding our focus – and take us away from where we can be most powerful and do the most good for ourselves and others. I hope this will help.

If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the “Tap Out Your Fears” series — which explains the basics of EFT — click here.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

For a picture of the tapping points — and more info on EFT — click here.

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at www.TapWithBrad.com.

For EFT with kids, please visit: www.TheWizardsWish.com.

The Fashion At The RNC Was Almost As Over The Top As The Speeches

It’s wasn’t all about the politics. Amid the whirlwind that was the 2016 Republican National Convention, some delegates showed their true passion for fashion.

Donning outrageously over-the-top costumes and GOP-themed paraphernalia, the delegates’ quirky attire provided a much-needed distraction from the often fear-mongering, and sometimes plagiarized, rhetoric being spouted from the stage.

Check out some of their most weird and wonderful styles below:

ACRX Recognition Gallery: American Consultants Rx
http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost. Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs.

Stop The Violence And Hate: 5 Things You Can Do Now

2016-07-20-1469048933-7840592-sNEIGHBORHOODsmall.jpg

I am sure everyone reading this can agree on one thing — the violence and hate needs to stop, and it needs to stop now. I am talking about the daily violence and hatred that is going on around the world. The fire of violence is consuming us, and it seems to be a raging fire. The flames are being fanned every day, on TV, in the news, on social media, on talk radio, at the dinner tables, in the offices down the street.

The violence is committed in the name of justice, in the name of an ideology, in the name of enforcement, for revenge or to right a wrong. I am peaceful man and I will confess it hurts my heart to see such death and hated. We have so much innocent blood being shed for… what?

As novelist and humanitarian Wendall Berry once said, “Violence breeds violence. Acts of violence committed in justice or in affirmation of rights or in defense of peace do not end violence. They prepare and justify its continuation.”

So what can you do to stop it? You are just one person right? What can one person do? I think there are simple things we can all do to help stop it.

1. Start with you. As the old song said: “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.” If there is to be peace, then you need to start with you by not supporting, condoning, endorsing violence in any way. I see messages on social media that say, “Well I am glad they got justice — they deserved it!” They are endorsing the murder of another human being for justice. This is not justice, it just murder. So even if you don’t commit violence yourself, don’t be the one who feeds the beast in the form of encouragement. Don’t support this kind of behavior anywhere. Make a daily commitment (not just lip service) to being kind and loving to everyone you meet and interact with. Show others in the world that kindness comes on all colors shapes and sizes. It is not going to be easy — nothing worthwhile ever is — and you are going to have days when you are tired and fail. But the next day, get dust yourself off and try again.

2. Start with your family. Teach your children to be kind, to be aware of other people feelings, to give back and to take care of others. Teach them empathy and caring and make it one of your family values. The way to change a culture is first and foremost at home first. Teach them to respect all people or all races creeds and colors. As a parent, show them through your actions how to be a kind soul. Don’t allow them to talk bad about others or to express hate. Let them know that is not how kind people act and that it is not acceptable behavior. As Nelson Mandela once said, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for loves comes more naturally to the human heart than the opposite.”

3. Start with your neighborhood. Do you know your neighbors? Reach out to them and get to know them. Be bold and knock on their door and say hi. Tell them as neighbors you need to stick together. Have a block party and get to know one another. Let them know you have their back. Take initiative and form a community association. Talk to each other. Have a community of connection and kindness. Our nation is a nation, but it is really made up of one neighborhood, and many neighborhoods make up a town, and many towns make up a state. Many states create a nation. You can’t change a nation but you can change your little pocket of the world, by creating and spreading peace and kindness in your neighborhood.

4. Start to volunteer. There are lots or people in the world that need care and help. When someone volunteers their time and energy to help someone else — hearts are healed and hatred dissipates. It’s hard to hate when you see people cares about you. I have done volunteer work with children, and I have seen the transformation power of what love can do to heal.

5. Start to listen. We need to stop being so polarized — no one wants to listen to anyone who doesn’t agree with them. In Washington DC, politicians just don’t listen to anyone on the other side of the aisle. We must start listening to other people with an open mind and trying to understand their world, their perspective. As Tennessee Williams once said, “I think hate is a feeling that can only exist where there is no understanding.”

I am asking you today in reading this to commit to being a bright and shining well of peace, good will and kindness. Let the cool and deep water of that well extinguish the flames of violence and hate.

Stephen Colbert Trolls GOP By Finding RNC’s ‘African-American Delegate,’ Keegan-Michael Key

Who says Donald Trump doesn’t have black supporters?

After a poll found that support for the GOP nominee for president was at zero percent among African-Americans in Ohio, Stephen Colbert went out and found a black delegate at the Republican National Convention.

Sort of.

It’s actually comic Keegan-Michael Key, playing a delightfully clueless visitor to the RNC.

Check it out in the clip above.

He’s Not A White Knight — He’s A Human Being

Society says:

Men are not allowed to be weak.

Men do not feel as deeply as women.

Men do not have emotional attachments to sex.

Men are fearless and courageous.

Men are here to save the day, the damsel and the world!

Today I am throwing my hands up in the air and saying e-nough!

With thoughts and stigmas like this, relationships are doomed before they even start.
It’s time we put an end to the emotional imprisonment of men.

Unless we stop seeing our men through a distorted lens, we will always feel disappointed and as if he’s not enough.

Ladies, he’s not a White Knight, he’s a human being. He’s not perfect; he’s flawed. Just as we are.

As much as the big screen likes to repeatedly demonstrate the amazing, enlightened, self-aware man rescuing the damsel at just the perfect moment, it’s a rare occurrence in real life.

For Pete’s sake, Ladies, we have to stop this nonsensical belief once and for all.

Gender Differences – Real or Not Real

There are very few gender lines I allow into my beliefs and the ones I do are mostly hormone or physiologically based. There are many books out there claiming males and females are very different and we must understand one another in order to get along.

I am publicly willing to stand in disagreement with this for many reasons. (But that’s for another blog)

At the core level, the absolute deepest level of our being, we are souls. Souls that are a magnificent balance of masculine and feminine energies. Souls that came here to experience a physical body and the material world. At our very core, we are Spirit in human form.

All of us.

We may have chosen to experience the form of male or female, but our purpose for being here is the same. We are no different from one another. We are here to learn and grow closer to our Higher Self (God-Self) while existing in human form.

When we understand we are dealing with another soul housed in a male body, we can acquire a deeper understanding and appreciation for our partner that has the capacity to heal our fractured relationships.

Giving What You Are Expecting

I absolutely believe if we lose the White Knight stigma we’ve attached to our men and start looking at them from a new perspective, relationships en masse would dramatically improve!

2016-07-18-1468874361-2893789-whiteknight.PNG

Although I cannot speak to all relationships as there are too many individual and unique dynamics in play, I believe those of you who were drawn to this article possess the ability to alter the state of your partnerships by viewing your man through a clearer lens.

You can start by asking yourself this question:

Am I giving to my man what I am expecting from him?

If I’ve seen it once, I’ve seen it a hundred times. Women expecting to be nurtured, supported, caressed, complimented, made passionate love to (and the list goes on), but they’re unwilling to do those things for their man.

Somewhere along the way they chose to believe it’s the man’s job, not theirs.

By putting such lopsided expectations are on our men, we create an atmosphere of perpetual lack and resentment.

Frankly, you are putting the entire relationship in the hands of your partner and by golly, that’s an incredible burden for anyone to bear!

Ladies, he can show up for you. He can hold your hand. He can love you and respect you, but you have an equally important role in the relationship’s success.

No one person can nurture the relationship alone. Happy, healthy relationships require both parties equally contributing to the healing and becoming of their partner.

What He’s Not Saying

In my past, I had the belief that the man was supposed to fill the cracks of my broken heart. That my heart was the only fragile one in the room and the right man would know exactly how to make me feel safe and loved.

I was left disappointed every time until one day I looked deeper into the eyes and soul of the person I was putting my expectations on.

I discovered he was just as afraid as I was and his heart equally as fragile.

My entire life changed when I began to view men from a different perspective.

I started to see what the men in my life were not saying rather than what they were saying. I saw their fears and I heard their inaudible cries for love. I didn’t tell them what I saw, I simply began approaching interactions with them differently – with love rather than expectation.

The responses that came were remarkable. Softness replaced hardness. Kindness replaced anger. Gratitude replaced bitterness. Appreciation replaced expectation.

It was a miracle.

2016-07-18-1468873875-7792811-whiteknight2.PNG

Your man needs your love, attention, support, understanding and encouragement as much as you need it from him. He has his own store of false beliefs and fears just as you do. He is not exempt from the human experience just because he sports a penis.

Most men won’t display their needs openly as they have been taught not to.

It’s up to us to know that as human beings men experience the same emotions, fears and weaknesses as women do. If we want to experience the wonders of a reciprocally loving relationship, we need to step up and do our part.

And with this beautiful shift in perception, you will become the person he’s always needed in his life – his soft place to fall. You will become his trusted companion, the one who knows and understands him like no other.

2016-07-18-1468873812-2537940-whiteknight1.PNG

You will be the reason he becomes all that he is meant to be and the reason he will protect his kingdom at all costs.

He will become the White Knight you’ve always dreamed about simply because you love him for all that he is.

My Love Letter To You

2016-07-15-1468620026-5807673-1400415_10154064214148711_917411793151883215_o.jpg

Thank you for the love letter. Thank you for the lengthy text message you wrote me from a space of total vulnerability. You hit send hoping for the best as your heart rested anxiously on your sleeve awaiting my text back. Thank you for the crumpled up piece of paper that you ran to give me on the beach, leaving your lifeguard tower abandoned for a split second so as to not miss the chance to ask me out. Thank you for the ride home from yoga. I know it took a lot of guts to ask me on a date just a breath before I closed the car door shut. Your cheeks were bright red as you grasped the steering wheel. But you did it, you faced your fear and made the ask.

I may have turned you down but I didn’t ignore you and I was polite, gracious, and compassionate in my response. I realize that it’s not what you were hoping to hear but I thanked you. I thanked for your sincerity and I meant it when I said that I was humbled by the effort. I see how you show up for love and it’s the same I see in me. Believe me when I say that I know how you feel.

There was the time that I went to the other side of the country to surprise you at your concert, palms sweaty in the back of the venue as I awaited the imminent moment that I’d say, “Hi! I came to see you because I care, I’ve missed you and I really like you.” Remember when I sent you that tiny box with a gemstone in it to protect you on your travels? Or what about when I left you a flower under your windshield wiper?

I’m the not-so-secret admirer just like you.

Whenever my romantic actions result in a “turn down” I don’t let it get me down. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be bold and tear down any walls of fear that existed around being rejected. I know I did the right thing by stepping forward and diving into it.
Disappointment can last a minute but regret can last a lifetime.

When I receive your old-school love letter, your authentic compliment in line at Whole Foods, your poem and your nervous ask, know that I see and understand you. I may not say “yes” but I’ll tell you thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. It’s easy to hide behind technology as we explore our hearts that are seeking to connect but It’s not easy to show up in person. If we desire something or someone, it’s our actions that will propel us to a result. Some of the most treasured words to me are those spoken by Mahatma Gandhi,

“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”

Thank you for the love letter, the art you made me, the authentic compliment, and for asking a stranger to dinner. I hope that you’ll receive this love letter back to you:

Dear Fellow Romantic,

Please keep showing up for life like you’ve been. Don’t let a “no” or even silence jade you. It’s you who sees the rose and it’s you who gets to smell her enchanting aroma. With eyes wide open continue to see, feel and express your deep experience of the world because that will inspire others to dive into their fears instead of letting fear block destiny. The more you show up for life in full expression of your hopes and dreams, the more that life will become your dream come true. It’s the romantics that see the glass half full. So please, beautiful soul, never become jaded. Always write love letters and always be able to receive them with grace, compassion, and a warm thank you.

With Love,
Alicia

Rapper Pitbull Dubs Donald Trump’s Presidential Campaign ‘A Joke’

Pitbull showed no love for Donald Trump when asked if he was backing the presumptive GOP presidential candidate.

I think the (Trump) campaign is a joke to be honest with you,” the Cuban-American rapper said while being honored with a star plaque on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles on Friday.

“I think that it’s unfortunate the way we’re being viewed around the world due to some people’s approaches,” he added.

His comments came following a recent Vanity Fair article in which the music star talked about a previous meeting with Trump.

I like to sit down with people and see what they’ve got going on, and if there’s anybody that’s fallen down and got back up… with all the bankruptcies he’s been through—well, you have to respect certain things about him,” he was quoted as saying.

Some people reportedly interpreted that “respect” to mean that he may be backing Trump ― despite Pitbull previously saying he wouldn’t be able to stay at the businessman’s hotels following his comments on Mexican immigrants.

But on Friday the 35-year-old, real name Armando Christian Pérez, further made it crystal clear he wouldn’t be endorsing The Donald for office. Am I supporting Donald Trump?” he said. “No I am not supporting Donald Trump. You all know this already very well.”

Watch the full Pitbull interview here:

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

Even the Lone Ranger Had Tonto

The current presidential race got me thinking about what truly makes a strong, powerful and trusted leader in the world. For the purposes of this blog, let’s leave opinionating about the candidates’ abilities at the moment up to CNN, FOX NEWS, and Saturday Night Live. Instead, let’s focus on your leadership abilities. On how you become a leader in your own life, at work, at home, in the classroom, and in your community.

Why? Because great leaders inspire change.

I decided to do a little research and find out what people think great leadership consists of. I discovered that not everyone has the same list; and, in fact, I’ve been getting a little flack for how “intense” and demanding my definition is. However, everything special or extraordinary I ever produced in my life came on the heels of a dare or overcoming some sort of fear, so what the heck, I dare you to define leadership as boldly as I do, and then go for it.

WHAT MAKES A GREAT LEADER?

  1. You have a defined purpose. Your vision is locked into your gut. You know who you are and what you want to say.
  2. You walk your talk.
  3. You talk and talk. You want to be heard and followed.
  4. Your mission is for a higher purpose.
  5. You set an example. In other words, you put yourself through something to turn your ordinary into extraordinary, publicly.
  6. You are transparent. You don’t hide things. People are allowed to know you, warts and all.
  7. You master your own mind and keep excuses at bay.

So, are you living your true mission? Do you know people like this? Sure, it’s a stringent, impressive and not easily achievable list. Except, if you’ve got any interest like me in its pursuit, I’ve put together a few pointers below for you to ponder as you step up and into being a powerful, purposeful leader in your life.

BUTCHER YOUR CHICKEN

Being a leader means people will look at you, watch you more closely and yes, judge you. There is no way around it. Many of us are fearful of being judged and thus manage what we say. You cannot be a chicken and a great leader at the same time. If you are afraid of being judged or worried about what people think about you, you will never be proud and confident in your life.

Do note, if you are judging your bosses, spiritual leaders or yoga teachers, it probably means you want their job and think you could do it better, but are too chicken to admit it. Because we know how strongly we judge, we fear being judged by others. Know you are going to be judged and busy yourself with setting standards that YOU want to meet and then meeting them.

OWN YOUR CRAP

Now, we all make mistakes and have negative qualities. It’s hard for anyone to admit when he or she is wrong, but it’s especially hard when you are the leader and you have to admit it up and down the pecking order, or in front of everyone. At our company, we make telling on ourselves a common practice, but it’s still hot-in-the-face-worthy work. And, we recognize how unique this culture is to be so inviting and forgiving. In most communities, admitting you’ve been a jerk is a big risk and pride prevents you from doing it, even if it would be the quickest way to resolve conflict, upgrade a system and/or improve your ability to lead.

A while back, I told a coworker that I thought I could do something better than she could. It turned out I was wrong. Now, as long as I didn’t own that “truth” or tell anyone, I still believed I could do it better. I’m sure you can imagine how much I did not want to admit out loud that disgusting judgment. But I did!

Whenever I own my crap or cop to something, as soon as I say it out loud, its validity is now in question and communication, leadership and affinity can be restored. Once it’s vocalized, it’s as if something about the words meeting with the air changes it (like iron oxidizing into rust) and it becomes absurd. We can all get back to work and I can go back to leading, not from on a high horse and being above others, but from a place grounded in my own integrity. I know I’m not perfect, and as a leader, I made the promise to always look for my weaknesses and mistakes and own them.

Telling the truth and owning what doesn’t work about you, keeps you trustworthy and safe to those around you.


EVEN THE LONE RANGER HAD TONTO

Great leaders are not controlling or ‘Lone Rangers.” They know when to ask for help and delegate. They are team players who let others rise up around them. I can be a baby at this level of leadership. I like trying to do everything myself, but it never works out for me. I end up getting overwhelmed, start dropping balls and people stop trusting me. I now have promises about delegating tasks to employees and communicating when I need help. This brings the team closer together and has people trust me more.

Love
Laurie

    11 Overlooked Elements To Goal-Setting

    Goal-setting is one of those tools that we most often view as being straight-forward. We set a goal, then we pursue it, and eventually we achieve it. Everyone knows that by achieving a goal, something important to you is accomplished and a whole new realm of possibilities open up. In this aspect, achieving a goal is multi-dimensional.

    But what if there was more to the “setting” portion of a goal than we realize? In reality, the act of goal-setting can be just as important, if not more important, than achieving it.

    Here are 11 overlooked elements to goal-setting that you will want to remember the next time you evaluate your goals.

    1. Goal-setting doesn’t have to start with a boring brainstorming session.

    Sure, brainstorming is an important part of the goal-setting process, but it’s not necessarily the first step. You should have a fairly deep understanding of yourself, your values, and your desires before sitting down and brainstorming goals. Take the time to learn and explore yourself first, which can be much more fun than writing a bunch of things down on a piece of paper.

    2. Goals don’t have to be these massive, super important, incredibly impactful things.

    Most people like to dream big, and yes, that’s a good thing. However, you don’t always need to shoot for the moon or feel like a failure. Find joy in setting silly or simpler goals for yourself. A frequent goal I set for myself is to “make one person laugh today.” It’s simple. It brings me happiness. And it can make someone else’s day. Don’t forget about the little things.

    3. Find your baseline.

    Far too often, goal-setting is strictly about the future. A majorly overlooked part of choosing the right goals is having a firm understanding of where your life currently stands. If you’re not in a good place to set a specific goal, then sometimes not setting it can be the right choice. Know yourself in the present and make the right calls for forging the best path forward.

    4. Don’t limit yourself.

    Know that you are qualified to achieve any goal that you set. It doesn’t matter how big or small your goal is. If you want it, set it, and learn about yourself along the way. If you’re actively pursuing something, it means you have the desire to achieve it. Don’t let any unnecessary limitations restrict your goal-setting.

    5. Setting a goal doesn’t mean you should become obsessed with it.

    How many of us have become obsessed with a goal? We set a goal and then it’s all we think about for a long while. This is honestly something I’m getting better at – enjoying the slow progress of pursuing a goal. After all, consistent progress is far better than sprinting and burning yourself out.

    6. Setting goals should be fun and exciting.

    If you aren’t super stoked about pursuing one of your goals, then why did you set it in the first place? Say you want to run your own business someday, but you dread having to take the steps to get there. You might not be cut out for this specific goal – and sometimes that’s perfectly okay. Yes, owning your own business is a lot of work, but you shouldn’t hate everything you need to do to get there.

    7. Goals can be put on hold if other things get in the way.

    Let me say this again – goals can be put on hold if other things get in the way. It’s totally fine and completely normal for life to happen. If something else comes up and you need to pause or redirect your goals, then use decision-making to make the right choice for you. A goal will still be there when you want to come back to it. Believe me, it’s not going anywhere.

    8. Goals don’t have to start at the beginning of a year.

    If you missed the boat on your New Year’s Resolution, join the club. People often use “waiting until next year” as an excuse to put off their goals. They think that they’ll be in a better place next year to set and achieve them. What they’re really saying is “any time other than right now works for me.” You don’t have to wait for a specific time to set your goals. Just because you didn’t set them at the beginning of the year doesn’t mean you can’t set them today.

    9. Not all goals need to have strict deadlines.

    The reason you set deadlines for your goals is to motivate you into taking action. This does not mean you should be unmotivated upon realizing the deadline might not be met. Giving up is not the right way to go about things. Instead, don’t be discouraged and simply reschedule your deadline. You need to allow for some flexibility in life as well as in goal-setting.

    10. Writing down your goals is a game-changer.

    2016-06-03-1464932130-7100314-write593333_1920.jpgvia Pixabay

    Everyone has thousands upon thousands of thoughts going on in their heads at any given time of day. If you don’t write down your goals, they are competing with these other thoughts and distractions. Goals will undoubtedly become lost, vague, forgotten, or mixed up. Writing down your goals can have a powerful effect of making them permanent and tangible. After you write them down, you’re also able to track your commitments to measure how many of them you actually keep.

    11. Don’t share your goals with everyone and anyone.

    Know that sharing your goals with close friends and family can be a great way to keep yourself accountable. However, this also puts extra pressure on yourself to succeed or face embarrassment by not accomplishing them. Often times, the best thing you can do is keep the really important goals to yourself, find ways to stay accountable, and then share your stories of accomplishment after you’ve achieved your goals.

    American Consultants Rx Charity Donation To Horizon Home Care By Charles Myrick

    ACRX Recognition Gallery: American Consultants Rx
    http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost. Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

    The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

    Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

    The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated .The cards are good at over 50k stores from Walgreen, Wal mart, Eckerd”s, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

    American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072. Please include name (if organization please include organization and contact name),mailing address,designate Spanish or English,amount of cards requested,and telephone number.

    American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

    8 Ways Smart People Act Stupid

    2016-07-08-1468006516-5391518-8WaysSmartPeopleActStupidHP.jpg

    It’s good to be smart. On the surface, being smart looks like easy living. But there’s another side to the story.

    Intelligent people have a reputation for making dumb mistakes, especially in situations that require common sense. The simplicity of these situations and the abundant intelligence of those who tend to muck them up can be downright comical.

    “Common sense is not so common.” -Voltaire

    Scientists are finally beginning to understand why this happens. Shane Frederick at MIT was among the first to conduct research that explained why rational thinking and intelligence don’t tend to go hand in hand.

    In his studies, Frederick gave people simple problems to solve, like this one:

    A bat and ball cost a dollar and ten cents. The bat costs a dollar more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?

    Frederick found that some people have the tendency to confidently blurt out the wrong answer, stating that the ball costs ten cents. You, of course, knew that the correct answer is that the ball costs five cents, and you’re completely justified if you’re wondering if the, well, less-than-smart people were the ones blurting out the wrong answer.

    Psychologists from James Madison University and the University of Toronto wondered the same thing. They gave similar tests of logic to hundreds of people and compared the accuracy of their answers to their levels of intelligence. The researchers found that smart people were more likely to blurt out the wrong answer because they actually make more mental mistakes when problem-solving.

    Smart people are more prone to silly mistakes because of blind spots in how they use logic. These blind spots exist because smart people tend to be overconfident in their reasoning abilities. That is, they’re so used to being right and having quick answers that they don’t even realize when they’re blowing it by answering without thinking things through.

    The dummies getting the bat-and-ball question wrong weren’t so dumb, either. When Frederick gave the question to students from Harvard, Princeton, and M.I.T., more than half of them got it wrong. Even students from some of the most prestigious universities in the world make stupid mistakes.

    Perhaps the scariest thing about the errors that highly intelligent people make is how unaware they are of them. People of all levels of intelligence succumb to what’s called the “bias blind spot.” That is, we’re great at spotting other people’s mistakes and terrible at recognizing our own. The sillier the mistake, the harder it is for an intelligent person to accept that they’ve made it.

    “I know that I am intelligent, because I know that I know nothing.”
    -Socrates

    While it might seem like we don’t spend our days solving logic problems like the bat-and-ball question, the brain functions involved in solving these problems are the same ones we use in everyday thinking. Hence, the tendency to do stupid things follows smart people into the workplace. Consider some of the most common ways in which smart people manage to shoot themselves in the foot.

    1. Smart people are overconfident. A lifetime of praise and pats on the back leads smart people to develop an unflappable faith in their intelligence and abilities. When you rack up accomplishments while people stroke your ego, it’s easy to expect that things will always go your way. But this is a dangerous expectation. Smart people often fail to recognize when they need help, and when they do recognize it, they tend to believe that no one else is capable of providing it.

    2. They push people too hard. Smart people develop overachieving personalities because things come so easily to them. They simply don’t understand how hard some people have to work to accomplish the same things, and because of that, they push people too hard. Smart people set the bar too high, and when people take too long or don’t get things quite right, they assume it’s due to a lack of effort. So they push even harder and miss the opportunity to help others achieve the goals they’re so anxious for them to reach.

    3. They always need to be right. It’s hard for anyone to graciously accept the fact that they’re wrong. It’s even harder for smart people because they grow so used to being right all the time that it becomes a part of their identity. For smart people, being wrong can feel like a personal attack, and being right, a necessity.

    4. They lack emotional intelligence.
    While intelligence (IQ) and emotional intelligence (EQ) don’t occur together in any meaningful way (Smart people, on average, have just as much EQ as everyone else), when a smart person lacks EQ, it’s painfully obvious. These high-IQ, low-EQ individuals see the world as a meritocracy. Achievements are all that matter, and people and emotions just get in the way. Which is a shame because TalentSmart research with more than a million people shows that–even among the upper echelons of IQ–the top performers are those with the highest EQs, as measured by an emotional intelligence test.

    5. They give up when they fail. Have you ever watched a sporting event and seen the stunned look on the face of an athlete whom everyone expected to win, but didn’t? Smart people can easily fall into the trap of seeing failure as the end of the world because frequent success creates expectations that make failure hard to tolerate. People who have to work hard for what they achieve have plenty of practice learning how to deal with failure. They learn to embrace it because they know that failure is just a stepping stone to success.

    6. They fail to develop grit. When things come really easy to you, it’s easy to see hard work as a negative (a sign that you don’t have what it takes). When smart people can’t complete something without a tremendous amount of effort, they tend to feel frustrated and embarrassed. This leads them to make the false assumption that if they can’t do something easily, there’s something wrong with them. As a result, smart people tend to move on to something else that affirms their sense of worth before they’ve put in the time to develop the grit they need to succeed at the highest possible level.

    7. They multitask. Smart people think really quickly, which can make them impatient. They like to get several things going at once so that there isn’t any downtime. They think so quickly that, when they multitask, it feels like it’s working and they’re getting more done, but Stanford research shows that this isn’t the case. Not only does multitasking make you less productive, but people who multitask often because they think they’re good at it are actually worse at multitasking than people who prefer to do one thing at a time.

    8. They have a hard time accepting feedback. Smart people tend to undervalue the opinions of others, which means they have trouble believing that anyone is qualified to give them useful feedback. Not only does this tendency hinder their growth and performance, it can lead to toxic relationships, both personally and professionally.

    Bringing It All Together

    To some, this post will read like I’m trashing smart people, but I’m not. Some of life’s greatest gifts, including high intelligence, can also come with challenges. If you aren’t willing to take an honest look at the whole picture, you’re selling yourself short. And that isn’t smart.

    How do you see smart people acting stupid? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

    The Royal Kidnapping

    The Royal Kidnapping


    A ROYAL PRINCE IS A MEMBER OF THE QUEBEC MAFIA ” MY SON HAS BEEN KIDNAPPED! Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family are now in crisis mode. In 1950, Queen Elizabeth the second gives birth to a baby boy named Prince Reginald. Four years later, the young Prince is kidnapped and despite enormous efforts to locate him, disappears for decades. When all hope of ever finding him has come to a complete end, the grown up Prince is discovered in one of the major historical tragedies beginning in the 21st century. Now what? How does this event affect this newly discovered family member, and what is his reaction to being a person of royal heritage? How does the Royal Family react to their son’s association with unsavory people from the state of New York as well as the province of Quebec? Each side must come to grips with their unique cultural differences, but what could that ultimately result in?

    Congress and America’s Trickle Down Culture of Fear and Suspicion

    It’s saddening as an American to watch the events in Dallas from overseas. I spend most summers in Japan, where the type of violence that Americans take for granted is unimaginable. My friends here look in horror and amazement at what transpires in the U.S. and constantly ask what’s wrong with my country. It’s a difficult question to answer when asked by people who live in a society largely without these problems.

    You don’t experience mass shootings or really much crime of any kind in Japan. Murders, thefts, and other crimes do happen and occasionally someone goes after a group of people with a knife, but an event like Dallas or Orlando or Sandy Hook is improbable in Japan. Part of the reason is that ordinary people can’t get weapons like AK-47s or even handguns, although they can own hunting rifles. The result of this is that there is never any reason to fear a mass shooting–or any kind of shooting–in Japan.

    You also don’t see police very often in Japan. They’re around and police boxes (stations) are readily evident in the cities, but patrol cars are not routinely visible and cops seem to stay in their police stations most of the time. The police don’t wear flack jackets, don’t carry high capacity 9mm handguns (they carry .38 revolvers), and when they go home their weapons stay at the police station. At the loud and angry anti-war and anti-government demonstrations I watched last summer, police were highly visible, but were wearing short-sleeve shirts and reflective vests rather than riot gear.

    What happened in Dallas is not really possible here, although there are certainly people who might feel enough anger to want to kill many others. The police in Japan don’t need to militarize themselves because the public is not increasingly dangerous due to easy availability of weapons of war for private citizens. In other words, the police don’t need to be suspicious and fearful of the general public; nor is the general public unduly afraid of the police. The police are there to help when help is needed and to arrest when necessary.

    But the issues in the U.S. aren’t just about guns and police.

    The most important difference I see in Japan is that it’s a society in which people don’t constantly fear each other. There is a basic level of trust and sense of respecting one’s fellow citizen that translates into low crime rates, very rare incidents of mass violence, and little desire for people to have guns for protection. As I write this from the Bullet Train, if I get up to buy a drink or walk around and leave my bag (with money in it) at my seat, it will still be there when I get back. I have no fear of it being stolen.

    No doubt someone will comment that Japan is racially homogeneous and that’s why there is little crime. This isn’t the reason, because there is no necessary cause that forces people of different races to distrust each other. Racial hatred and distrust are cultural, and American culture has a lot of experience promoting it. There is racism in Japan, to be sure, and sometimes foreigners are blamed for crime and immigration laws are rigid. But there is also open welcoming of people from other countries and other races and a desire among many Japanese to befriend outsiders. Like any other country, Japan is complex and diverse, with people of many attitudes and behaviors.

    American society suffers from a pervasive culture of fear, distrust, and selfishness. The desire to have guns for protection stems from fear of others and fear of losing one’s material possessions. Racism is also a product of fear–fear of those who look different or might have different ideas and beliefs from one’s own combined with a selfish unwillingness to see the world through the eyes of others. And conflicts over religious belief are also a product of fear, selfishness, and distrust.

    Racism, wanting guns for protection, and religious intolerance are all symptoms of a society whose most serious problem is having become governed by fear and characterized by distrust.

    When I look at America from abroad, that’s really where the problem seems to lie–Americans have created a culture of suspicion and distrust over the past few decades that pervades the relationships between and among those who have different opinions about how best to organize society and keep people safe, productive, and happy. Perhaps it has always been there, but the gap of distrust seems to be growing more intense over time and has become, somewhat ironically, increasingly noticeable since 9/11.

    Why is this happening? One answer lies in the behavior of representatives in Congress and other politicians.

    There is an old saying that actions speak louder than words. The actions of politicians have been screaming at the public for years an unwillingness to address, and in many cases even discuss, real social problems like institutional racism, extreme inequalities in distribution of wealth, unequal educational quality, and easy availability of weapons of war. And many in Congress and elsewhere have failed to display open respect for each other and the system in which they function as elected officials, instead showing contempt for those with differing viewpoints and political beliefs and in many cases for the political system itself.

    The result of Congressional intransigence and stubborn self-centeredness by politicians in general is what we might call Trickle Down Culture. The problem of growing suspicion, distrust, and unwillingness to listen to those who are different from ourselves starts with the Congress and with other politicians, who have provided a stunning example of poor behavior the American public has increasingly come to mimic in both actions and words. Nowhere is this more evident than in the actions of many who support Donald Trump’s presidential bid.

    The solution to American’s problems begins with members of Congress, as well as those who hold and are running for other public office. Our politicians need to speak with actions (and words) that display trust, respect, and a willingness collectively to address social ills and compromise with those who have opposing views. In other words, America’s politicians need to show that they are genuinely interested in the well-being of the American public and the future of their country. Until this happens, nothing can change.

    The Police Shootings: How Can I React With Love?

    It’s a surreal and very sad day. Take a moment to remember that the people who are accused of killing others are individuals. One police officer doesn’t represent all police officers. And now, the Dallas shooters (reminiscent of another national tragedy) don’t represent an entire race of people. #blacklivesmatter .. yes. #bluelivesmatter .. yes #alllivesmatter .. yes, yes.

    When tragedies like these occur, some of us ask: how could this happen? what can I do? On a small scale, I think we can do a lot. I think we can make a change by “looking at the man in the mirror,” as Michael Jackson sang. Here’s a challenge: put the ab work aside and work on spiritual pullups.

    Can I work today on respecting you? Can I not share anything whether on social media or with my powerful voice, that puts someone else down because they think differently or look differently than me? Can I train my brain to be more compassionate rather than critical of you?

    It’s not easy. Especially not for me, as I think back this week on the time I laughed at someone on the beach who looked abnormally tall next to my husband while I took a photo of them (the tall person not knowing he was in the photo). I did it for a laugh. Because the tall man was different. Now, I’m wondering if I am adding to the problem.

    I wonder if we can get to the point where we appreciate each others differences, listen to others opinions, respect each others point of view and prosecute those who do others harm.

    All lives matter. Especially yours. You can make a difference. You can’t change what happened in Dallas or Baton Rouge or Falcon Heights. But you can change how you think and how you treat people. Can we, instead of putting others down for their opinion, show some respect. Listen to each other. That’s spreading a little love. And one thing I know for sure about love is this: it wipes out the fear and hate.

    GMO Food Labeling Bill Passes In The Senate

    (Reuters) – The U.S. Senate on Thursday approved legislation that would for the first time require food to carry labels listing genetically-modified ingredients, which labeling supporters say could create loopholes for some U.S. crops.

    The Senate voted 63-30 for the bill that would display GMO contents with words, pictures or a bar code that can be scanned with smartphones. The U.S. Agriculture Department (USDA) would decide which ingredients would be considered genetically modified.

    The measure now goes to the House of Representatives, where it is expected to pass.

    Drawing praise from farmers, the bill sponsored by Republican Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas and Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow of Michigan is the latest attempt to introduce a national standard that would override state laws, including Vermont’s that some say is more stringent, and comes amid growing calls from consumers for greater transparency.

    “This bipartisan bill ensures that consumers and families throughout the United States will have access, for the first time ever, to information about their food through a mandatory, nationwide label for food products with GMOs,” Stabenow said in a statement.

    A nationwide standard is favored by the food industry, which says state-by-state differences could inflate costs for labeling and distribution. But mandatory GMO labeling of any kind would still be seen as a loss for Big Food, which has spent millions lobbying against it.

    Farmers lobbied against the Vermont law, worrying that labeling stigmatizes GMO crops and could hurt demand for food containing those ingredients, but have applauded this law.

    Critics like Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont, say the bill’s vague language and allowance for electronic labels for scanning could limit its scope and create confusion.

    “When parents go to the store and purchase food, they have the right to know what is in the food their kids are going to be eating,” Sanders said on the floor of the Senate ahead of the vote.

    He said at a news conference this week that major food manufacturers have already begun labeling products with GMO ingredients to meet the new law in his home state.

    Another opponent of the bill, Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon, said it would institute weak federal requirements making it virtually impossible for consumers to access information about GMOs.

    LOOPHOLES

    Food ingredients like beet sugar and soybean oil, which can be derived from genetically-engineered crops but contain next to no genetic material by the time they are processed, may not fall under the law’s definition of a bioengineered food, critics say.

    GMO corn may also be excluded thanks to ambiguous language, some said.

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) raised concerns about the involvement of the USDA in a list of worries sent in a June 27 memo to the Senate Agriculture Committee.

    In a letter to Stabenow last week, the USDA’s general counsel tried to quell those worries, saying it would include commercially-grown GMO corn, soybeans, sugar and canola crops.

    The vast majority of corn, soybeans and sugar crops in the United States are produced from genetically-engineered seeds. The domestic sugar market has been strained by rising demand for non-GMO ingredients like cane sugar.

    The United States is the world’s largest market for foods made with genetically altered ingredients. Many popular processed foods are made with soybeans, corn and other biotech crops whose genetic traits have been manipulated, often to make them resistant to insects and pesticides.

    “It’s fair to say that it’s not the ideal bill, but it is certainly the bill that can pass, which is the most important right now,” said American Soybean Association’s (ASA) director of policy communications Patrick Delaney.

    The association was part of the Coalition for Safe and Affordable Food, which lobbied for what labeling supporters termed the Deny Americans the Right to Know, or DARK Act, that would have made labeling voluntary. It was blocked by the Senate in March.

    Here’s Proof That Telling An Anxious Person To ‘Calm Down’ Doesn’t Work

    The panicked feeling you get right before a big presentation is hardly cause for excitement. But viewing it as one may be the key to a better performance.

    As The Atlantic video above explains, repurposing your anxiety over certain situations can help improve their outcome. A 2014 Harvard Business School study found that when individuals told themselves “I am excited” before a big test, speech or event, their performances significantly improved. The phrase allowed them to shift from seeing the event as a threat to seeing it as an opportunity.

    The trick that didn’t work? Trying to calm down. Turns out it’s psychologically more simple to shift from anxiety to excitement because they’re both states of arousal. Trying to shift from anxious to calm, however, is not easy at all. 

    The research further corroborates the longstanding argument that telling someone with anxiety to just “take a breath” doesn’t work. Obviously, it’s not that simple. While the study subjects didn’t feel any less anxious by telling themselves they were excited, they seemed to be more successful despite their stress.

    Just a little food for thought before your next big work presentation.

    Take a look at the video above for more on transforming anxiety into excitement.

    http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost. Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

    The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

    Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

    The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated .The cards are good at over 50k stores from Walgreen, Wal mart, Eckerd”s, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

    American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072.

    The Tree, The Fruit, and The Ladder

    Here’s a thought that came to me a few days ago and I’ve pondered it since then.

    Imagine for a moment that we can represent true spirituality and even the purpose of our existence in this world as a tall tree. High up in the tree is the fruit that we’re here to pick and enjoy. It’s life changing. It’s meant for us and is the true nourishment we need. But it’s beyond our normal reach. So we find or build long, tall ladders we can climb to get to the fruit.

    Imagine a positive religion as a ladder, or a life philosophy as one. Any enterprise, any structured activity or array of human activities could be conceptualized as a ladder propped up against that high tree. Some of the ladders may be rickety and dangerous or too short, but some are great and even truly inspired. Perhaps, many are. And you may properly believe that you’re on the best one of all, a great ladder that’s been explicitly designed for reaching the highest fruit of all. You’ve been taught how to climb the ladder. And suppose you’ve learned well. So you climb high. And you’ve not just mastered the techniques of ascent, you’ve learned lots of other things along the way because of what you’ve experienced and seen as you’ve climbed.

    But here’s the problem. Many people who climb in search of the ultimate fruit tend to cling tightly to their ladder with both hands. And they won’t let go. Ladder climbing has been turned from a means into an end. And that’s a problem. When people keep a firm grip on their ladder, some fearfully and with white knuckles, they can’t actually reach out for the fruit that awaits them and take it and eat it, and share it with others.

    Only those who are willing to let go of the ladder can reach for the fruit. They can still keep their feet firmly planted on its rungs, but they have to reach out beyond its structure with an open hand to get the real treasure they’ve sought.

    And the tragedy, it seems to me, is that many people who have good ladders just become ladder experts, ladder specialists and aficionados. They work on their ladders a lot, and paint them, and polish them, and keep them in good repair. They may even gild them with gold and show them proudly to others. But when they climb, they simply cling and don’t reach out for what’s really the purpose of the climb.

    The moral of this little metaphor is, of course, simple. Find a great ladder and climb high. But then learn to let go enough to reach for the fruit that’s the real point of the climb. Life, after all, isn’t about the ladder, but ultimately the fruit.

    TV Journalist Trolls Betting Shop Offering Odds On His Tie Color

    When a betting agency began offering odds on what color tie a veteran political journalist would be wearing during a live telecast, he decided to have some fun.

    Laurie Oakes switched up his neckwear multiple times during Channel Nine News’s coverage of the Australian general election on Saturday night to throw the Sportsbet wager into disarray.

    Oakes’ amusing antics ended up forcing agency bosses to pay out to everyone who’d gambled on him wearing either a yellow, blue, black, green, gold or any other color tie.

    I thought well why should anyone miss out?” Oakes told the Today show. “So I wore all six colors and in the end Sportsbet paid out on every bet.”

    “I like to think of myself as the punters’ protector,” he added.

    According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Sportsbet bosses initially thought they were in for a windfall when Oakes began the program wearing a red tie — the color with the shortest odds.

    But when he swapped it up for a green number, they started to get suspicious.

    After Oakes plumped for a third, yellow, necktie, they realized the game was up.

    They could only look on as Oakes then opted for a fourth, blue tie.

    And then this black one.

    By the time he wore his sixth tie, Sportsbet decided they’d been well and truly rumbled — and offered to pay out an all of the colors.

    Sportsbet decided to tip its hat to the Oakes and have paid out on all the Laurie Oakes tie bets, handing 57 punters a total of $ 3,010,” a Sportsbet spokesman told Nine News.

    As for the election itself, the winner is reportedly still too close to call. Prime Minister and opposition Labour party leader Bill Shorten are now in talks with independent lawmakers as they each bid to form a minority government.
