FIND OUT WHAT YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY IS REALLY WORTH TODAY!

karat bars card ads I am very optimistic about the future, as I share with my friends & family  about how to get paid to save.  What is coming in the next couple of months is going to blow your socks off, “Kay Exchange”. Purchase with your Gold, just like paper money.

Be aware of the spending power today of the dollar, so super smart to be informed.

When looking over the US Inflation Calculator where it says in 1913 when you purchased something for $20.00 dollars it’ll cost you $481.50 to have the same equivalency in spending or buying power today. That’s showing a cumulative rate of inflation at 2,307.5%. So, in other words. Every $1.00 is worth .05 cents in Buying power or 100 dollars is worth 2.00!

 

What are your options?

1. You can work harder to make more money. This system is broken because the federal reserve will continue printing into inflation that will lead to hyperinflation.

2. You can work smarter and exchange paper money for real gold money.

Gold money by Karatbars gold bars are accepted in central banks, is used to settle debts between governments and is now affordable to the masses. And, soon to be able to exchange gold for products and services.

10 Simple Secrets You Can Do To Today That Will Make You Happier…

As my “Happiness Coaching ” is taking off I have been reading and studying much about Happiness. In writing the info that I got from this book I must say that #8 something I am going to study a bit more, because we have never felt worse when we get home…. Share with me your experience around taking vacations! 

suzan-feature-smallHappiness is so interesting, because we all have different ideas about what it is and how to get it. So naturally we are obsessed with it.

I would love to be happier, as I’m sure most people would, so I thought it would be interesting to find some ways to become a happier person that are actually backed up by science. Here are ten of the best ones I found.

 

1. Exercise more – 7 minutes might be enough

You might have seen some talk recently about the scientific 7 minute workout mentioned in The New York Times. So if you thought exercise was something you didn’t have time for, maybe you can fit it in after all.

Exercise has such a profound effect on our happiness and well-being that it’s actually been proven to be an effective strategy for overcoming depression. In a study cited in Shawn Achor’s book, The Happiness Advantage, three groups of patients treated their depression with either medication, exercise, or a combination of the two. The results of this study really surprised me. Although all three groups experienced similar improvements in their happiness levels to begin with, the follow up assessments proved to be radically different:

You don’t have to be depressed to gain benefit from exercise, though. It can help you to relax, increase your brain power and even improve your body image, even if you don’t lose any weight.

We’ve explored exercise in depth before, and looked at what it does to our brains, such as releasing proteins and endorphins that make us feel happier, as you can see in the image below.

2. Sleep more – you’ll be less sensitive to negative emotionsWe know that sleep helps our bodies to recover from the day and repair themselves, and that it helps us focus and be more productive. It turns out, it’s also important for our happiness.

Using a face recognition task, here we demonstrate an amplified reactivity to anger and fear emotions across the day, without sleep. However, an intervening nap blocked and even reversed this negative emotional reactivity to anger and fear while conversely enhancing ratings of positive (happy) expressions.

Of course, how well (and how long) you sleep will probably affect how you feel when you wake up, which can make a difference to your whole day. Especially this graph showing how your brain activity decreases is a great insight about how important enough sleep is for productivity and happiness:

3. Move closer to work – a short commute is worth more than a big houseOur commute to the office can have a surprisingly powerful impact on our happiness. The fact that we tend to do this twice a day, five days a week, makes it unsurprising that its effect would build up over time and make us less and less happy.

4. Spend time with friends and family – don’t regret it on your deathbedStaying in touch with friends and family is one of the top five regrets of the dying. If you want more evidence that it’s beneficial for you, I’ve found some research that proves it can make you happier right now.

5. Go outside – happiness is maximized when we in Nature
Making time to go outside on a nice day also delivers a huge advantage; one study found that spending 20 minutes outside in good weather not only boosted positive mood, but broadened thinking and improved working memory…
6. Help others – 100 hours a year is the magical numberOne of the most counter-intuitive pieces of advice I found is that to make yourself feel happier, you should help others. In fact, 100 hours per year (or two hours per week) is the optimal time we should dedicate to helping others in order to enrich our lives.

7. Practice smiling – it can alleviate painSmiling itself can make us feel better, but it’s more effective when we back it up with positive thoughts, according to this study:

A new study led by a Michigan State University business scholar suggests customer-service workers who fake smile throughout the day worsen their mood and withdraw from work, affecting productivity. But workers who smile as a result of cultivating positive thoughts – such as a tropical vacation or a child’s recital – improve their mood and withdraw less.

8. Plan a trip – but don’t take one

As opposed to actually taking a holiday, it seems that planning a vacation or just a break from work can improve our happiness. A study published in the journal, Applied Research in Quality of Life showed that the highest spike in happiness came during the planning stage of a vacation as employees enjoyed the sense of anticipation: In the study, the effect of vacation anticipation boosted happiness for eight weeks. After the vacation, happiness quickly dropped back to baseline levels for most people.

9. Prayer & Meditate – rewire your brain for happiness

Important habit for improving focus, clarity and attention span, as well as helping to keep you calm. It turns out it’s also useful for improving your happiness:

In one study, a research team from Massachusetts General Hospital looked at the brain scans of 16 people before and after they participated in an eight-week course in mindfulness meditation. The study, published in the January issue of Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging, concluded that after completing the course, parts of the participants’ brains associated with compassion and self-awareness grew, and parts associated with stress shrank.

Meditation literally clears your mind and calms you down, it’s been often proven to be the single most effective way to live a happier live. I believe that this graphic explains it the best:

10. Practice gratitude – increase both happiness and life satisfactionThis is a seemingly simple strategy, but I’ve personally found it to make a huge difference to my outlook. There are lots of ways to practice gratitude, from keeping a journal of things you’re grateful for, sharing three good things that happen each day with a friend or your partner, and going out of your way to show gratitude when others help you.

This morning I was watching our chicken’s, as I let them out of their coop for the day~ I watched such a joy, amazing happiness for something so very simple.

I had the thought I wonder why Happiness is not so easy for people! This is why I have devoted my time & work toward reaching those with not feeling joy & laughter. Remember when you were a child and something would be so funny that your tummy hurt from all the laughter? Lets begin to visit that feeling again.

Epic Leadership

                                                    ~Walk Humbly~

You are going be be completely amazed when you read about this! If your follow up with some simple research over some of what I am going to write about you will grow so much in your faith in becoming a leader.

I have read 20 or more books on leadership, which has been great for me as a person in direct sales & helping others succeed. Never have I been taught or read about one of the most powerful Leaders in the Bible~ Josiah (2 Kings 22 7 23). A little history before Josiah becomes King, his dad & his grandpa we full bore idolators & Judah was absolutely hugely corrupt.  His Grandpa, Manasseh was an awful King. 2 Kings 21~ the full chapter will give a better feel for how jacked up this guy “this King over Judah” was. You will also discover Josiah father, whom was just as bad as Manasseh~ if not worse. All right there in the 21st chapter of Kings 21.

mark connelyI am so excited for you to learn about our main character Josiah. So let unpack some of what I learned from our Pastor Mark Connelly, as I am sharing what I learned in the past two weeks at Missions Church, Gilbert AZ. You will want to read these scriptures yourself.mission-orange-tag_normal

Who are you influencing or have a leadership role in their life?
Who is it that you are following or look to for guidance?

2 Kings 22:2 States that Josiah followed God completely and “…not turning aside to the
right or to the left.”

As we begin to read parts of these scriptures, you will begin to understand it does not matter where you came from, who raised or what you had to experience as child. You can become all that God has promised in His word….

Josiah was eight years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem thirty-one years. His mother was Jedidah, the daughter of Adaiah from Bozkath. He did what was pleasing in the Lord’s sight and followed the example of his ancestor David. He did not turn away from doing what was right.

Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the court secretary, “I have found the Book of the Law in the Lord’s Temple!”  “Your officials have turned over the money collected at the Temple of the Lord to the workers and supervisors at the Temple.

When the king heard what was written in the Book of the Law, he tore his clothes in despair. Then he gave these orders to Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam son of Shaphan, Acbor son of Micaiah, Shaphan the court secretary, and Asaiah the king’s personal adviser: “Go to the Temple and speak to the Lord for me and for the people and for all Judah. Inquire about the words written in this scroll that has been found. For the Lord’s great anger is burning against us because our ancestors have not obeyed the words in this scroll. We have not been doing everything it says we must do.”
“Leadership is a seed planted; not a switch that is flipped.” What do
you think he meant by that and how do we plant the seeds for good leadership in our
lives?mark connely

Read 2 Kings 22:19 carefully and use it as the background for answering the following
questions:
• Josiah himself was not the one who had set up idols in the land and encouraged
people to worship them; yet, he accepts that he is part of the group of people who
are in trouble even though he isn’t the one “sinning”. When Josiah realized that Judah and Israel had sinned against God, he didn’t blame the people but made himself one of them and repented. From a leadership perspective, talk about blaming others verses making yourself one with the group.• How did Josiah in essence “humble himself”? What specifically do you think he did? What was his attitude at the time?What does this mean and what would it look like in a good leader?

                            “Leadership Is Shared”
Josiah followed God completely with all his heart. If you were to follow God with all
your heart, what would that look like in your life? What would you be doing differently?
Do your priorities reflect someone who is following God completely? What change
could you make this week to move in this direction?
Josiah basically “owned” the sins of his ancestors and those around him and repented of
them. Are there sins of others around you that you need to “own” and repent of? What
are these and what would repentance and humility look like in this situation?
At what level to you allow God to speak to you through the scriptures? If you were
following God completely, what would good habits be in regards to the Bible? Are these
habits true in your life?
Here is the video of Pastor Mark sharing & teaching about Epic Leadership:

Leader’s lead the wayShow the way

Commitment is all in, anything else is just experimentation!

What habit can you form this week to become aligned better with scripture?

Do You Know What Is In Your Hand?

 n. hillToday is the first day of 2013~ I am so excited to see what new adventures are in store for me & my family. But as I think about YOU and how you will be used in this New Year, there is no stopping you.Every year at New Years, there’s lots of talk about change, resolutions, and making the next year better than the last.  You have the opportunity to co-create the life you really want to live.

So how exactly do you make that transformation?be different

Your prosperity grows exactly as fast as you do:  No faster, no slower.  The only way to really increase your wealth is to increase the value you provide.  And that means growing yourself.   You need daily self-development time, to work on your body, mind and soul.  You have to be learning new knowledge and developing new wisdom.  I believe this is best done in the morning, so you set your intention and create your consciousness for the whole day.

Learning to see the richness of the resources you already possess is a master key to your success. What can you do now, today, with what you already have to move forward toward your dreams and goals? Don’t get trapped in the quicksand of comparison, lamenting the talents, gifts, and opportunities of others while overlooking your very own. You are not lacking!

 Who is in your network? Which life experiences can you build onWhich talents can you begin to develop?

You are abounding with unique opportunities and untapped talents.  Take an inventory of your strengths, gifts, and resources. Open your eyes to your own opportunities. Which abilities come naturally and effortlessly that you can use today? 

 

Do not delay the pursuit of your dreams and goals because you believe you are unqualified to do so. The craving for more credentials will cause you to discredit what you already know and what you already can do. This can become a pursuit of validation rather than education. You are already well equipped and qualified to begin!

I love to grow daily, reading more, loving more~ adding more harmony into our lives. This past month has been one of most difficult times for me & my family. After losing my mom in October, then Holiday set in. I began a new 90 Day online Challenge with one of my mentors, so excited about truly getting my internet marketing to take off. Mid December I caught the worst flu bug I have ever had, I am the one who never gets sick. I was totally stopped in my tracks, stuck in bed. sprouts

As I became aware that I was not going to be able to do much, I knew one thing~ control my thoughts and visualize my desires & dreams. I listen consistently to powerful  messages about controlling my thought life. This was not a time for me to take a vacation from my thoughts. It would of been very easy to slide down hill and bury myself in pity. Instead I focused on everything that was going into my mind, and not letting any junk in. Which is why today I am writing about what we hold in our destiny…The best way to predict the future is to create it. – Peter Drucker

Learning is a lifelong journey. Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. What is in your hand?

Make a list of actions you can do now, and begin today. Yes, you should always seek to gain more knowledge, skills, and strategies, but completing that objective is not a precursor to reporting to your starting line. Set your goals and GO!  discipline

 stepping stones

May you be truly blessed in the New Year & as the whole year unfolds ♥

To your success!

Suzan

*Expect The Best:

“The greatest discovery of any generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude.”http://www.suzanbafford.com

 

William James was an original thinker in and between the disciplines of physiology, psychology and philosophy. His twelve-hundred page masterwork, The Principles of Psychology(1890), is a rich blend of physiology, psychology, philosophy, and personal reflection that has given us such ideas as “the stream of thought” and the baby’s impression of the world “as one great blooming, buzzing confusion” (PP 462). It contains seeds of pragmatism and phenomenology, and influenced generations of thinkers in Europe and America, including Edmund Husserl, Bertrand Russell, John Dewey, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. James studied at Harvard’s Lawrence Scientific School and the School of Medicine, but his writings were from the outset as much philosophical as scientific. “Some Remarks on Spencer’s Notion of Mind as Correspondence” (1878) and “The Sentiment of Rationality” (1879, 1882) presage his future pragmatism and pluralism, and contain the first statements of his view that philosophical theories are reflections of a philosopher’s temperament.

William James

 

What are you expecting today? Set your mind to expect the best! You command the tone for your day, your year, and your life. Do not wait for events to unfold. Make the decision in advance to expect the best.

Make the commitment to pull every ounce of positivity out of the day before it ever begins. Declare what your day will have in store. It is not the circumstances that arise that matter, it is how you choose to interpret them and respond to them that will dictate the direction of your day and your life.

Are you expecting to struggle or to soar? Are you expecting trouble or triumph? Ask yourself, “What is the best that can happen today?”

Expect good breaks. Expect to make a great business connection. Expect to have something positive happen unexpectedly. Expect to finish your project on time. Expect to close the deal. Expect that your proposal will be welcomed. Expect to have more energy and to feel better. Expect to enjoy the visit with your in-laws. Expect your children to do well in school, and to listen to your counsel. Expect creative ideas to flow into your mind. Expect to find the answer to a difficult problem.

Do you have an attitude of expectancy? Wake up each day ready to win. Command the day to line up with your expectations. Command your mind to find the good in every situation. Take control of your thoughts
throughout the day, and make them align with your expectations.

You can change your life by changing your attitude. Expect the best!

Be a Blessing,

Suzan

God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.
