Yoga: Yes You Can Be Enligthened

If you are reading this then you are ready to learn secrets of yoga that have been kept for thousands of years, not so much because they were locked away, but because getting to the core of them was too hard. Too many books to read, too many different schools and practices.

I am creating a new bookclub (chapter by chapter exploration) of the book Samadhi.  See the bottom of this article for the book club I did on his pranayama book.

I wish I was

It is possible to attain the highest freedom

It is possible to attain the highest freedom, click on the book to read with me

free from thoughts, and that nothing woul bother me, I wish I was what people say is enlightened, a state of flow, or Samadhi, but life has a way to give us experiences so that we learn what we need to learn when we are ready.… Read the rest

3 Things I love About “The Rich Employee” by James

FIRST thing I love about the book is the “dedication” page because it can read as fiction or non-fiction…

Dedication The Rich Employee

It could be the beginning of a science fiction novel (“In a world…”), OR, it could be the beginning of what the book is all about: A helpful tool on how to get the mind-set to be both an employee and make money at it.

Don’t Say Yes When You Want To Say NO

“YES, AND” Is the way out…  It is how you can say NO! When you mean it.saying-no

Heck! James and I even wrote a book called “The Power Of No” – Mostly because we, also, struggle with it…

And it is critical:

YOU MUST NOT SAY “YES” WHEN YOU MEAN TO SAY “NO”

So: Saying “yes, and” can save the day…

For example:

If you like the the idea of doing something someone is asking, but have no time, you could say:

How To Get Any Job You Want: Guaranteed

When someone says “guaranteed” I get a neg-gut reaction, you probably do too,  so let me say it right off the start: this woman is doing it. She is getting the job she wants. TODAY.

She may or may not get the “company” she wants, true, but she is talking to the CEO of Airbnb TODAY, right here in San Francisco, where I am blessed to be.

How many resume senders get that opportunity?
