How to Overcome Health & Fitness Hurdles

KP-ing It Simple

When you first decide to make health and fitness a priority in your life, you’re on a roll. You’ve filled your kitchen with healthy food, your activewear is on point, and you feel inspired. You’re ready to go. But then, something happens.

Or you get bored. All of these things are barriers that can hold you back from achieving your goals. However, they do not have to stop you.

Small steps add up to big changes

Barbells 'n Bites

“The big numbers aren’t reached unless the small numbers are realized.” – Joyce Meyer

When I think back to several years ago, I never would have been able to imagine the place that I am at now in my life.  My old self could never have imagined that by the time 2017 rolled around I would have my personal training certification, I would be preparing to compete at Canadian Nationals in Masters Bikini, and I would be starting my own business!  I was depressed and discouraged, and only now do I see that it had been going on for several years.  I had a good life in terms of my health, my family and my finances, but there was an underlying discontent that I just couldn’t seem to shake.  I wasn’t working, but I couldn’t seem to enjoy that fact.  I lacked self-confidence and was overly concerned with what others…

Be Like Water

Dr. Masaru Emoto, a researcher and alternative healer from Japan has given the world a good deal of evidence of the magic of positive thinking. He became famous when his water molecule experiments featured in the 2004 film, What The Bleep Do We Know? His experiments demonstrate that human thoughts and intentions can alter physical reality, such as the molecular structure of water. Given that humans are comprised of at least 60% water, his discovery has far reaching implications… can anyone really afford to have negative thoughts or intentions?

The rice experiment is another famous Emoto demonstration of the power of negative thinking (and conversely, the power of positive thinking.) Dr Emoto placed portions of cooked rice into two containers. On one container he wrote “thank you” and on the other “you fool”. He then instructed school children to say the labels on the jars out loud…

The Golden Rule of Investing

Dividend Income Investors

What is the “Golden Rule of Investing”?

 “Think of all money you earn as a Potential source of Future Income”  

Don’t think in terms of how much money you have or have saved but rather how much money you can generate from what you have.

In other words, when you receive your pay check, of course you have to pay your bills. And some bills you will always have – electric, water, gas, phone, mortgage but those that you don’t is where you can get the money to finance your future.  A great example is your car. A lot of people buy a car – and of course they buy into the marketing that owning that luxury or high priced sports car is more fulfilling somehow. But what you need to consider how much future income did you give up for that little bit of prestige you got from…
