Are you a Leader? This is how you should be spending your days…

Entrepreneur and CultureIQ are searching for the top high-performing cultures to be featured on our annual list. Think you or your company has what it takes?

How do top business leaders spend their time? Being fascinated by this topic, I collaborated with Chris Stowell, vice president of the International Center for Management and Organization Effectiveness in Sandy, Utah, to survey 267 C-level executives (all at the vice president level or higher) at Fortune 500 companies.

The respondents to the email survey, completed over the past two months, came from 163 companies including Adobe, American Express, AT&T, Bank of America, Boeing, BP, Delta, DHL, Federal Express, GE, Google, HP, John Deere, Johnson & Johnson, Kelloggs, Motorola, Rio Tinto and Twitter.

The survey research showed that the typical corporate leader wakes up at about 6:15 a.m., exercises for 45 minutes and commutes 25 minutes each way. Every workday, he or she spends two hours and 25 minutes on email and texting, 25 minutes on strategy and planning, and 30 minutes on personal development. The infographic below, created by Stowell, my friend and a leadership-training consultant, summarizes the findings.

You`ll never worry again about negative thinking after learning this simple technique!

Get a piece of paper or your journal and find a quiet place to sit and write. This isn’t
a brainstorming exercise but a “heartstorming” exercise, intended to help connect
you with your true passions and interests.

Before you begin, take 3 deep breaths and ask the Universe to guide you through
this exercise.

You might say something like, “Dear Universe, please guide me as I
find my way to my true destiny. Thank you.”
Think back to when you were younger. What did you absolutely love to do? What
were your interests and passions? What activities or pursuits were you most
excited about?

Write down any thoughts or ideas that come to mind.
What about now? What do you love to do? What activities or pursuits can you get
completely lost in? What are you most passionate about? Do you feel something
calling you?
Again, write down any thoughts or ideas that come to mind, no matter how crazy
they may seem.
Now fast forward to the end of your lifetime and imagine that Bronnie Ware is
asking you whether you have any regrets.
What would you say? What would your life have looked like if you had lived it on
your terms and fulfilled all of your dreams?

And Life-Changing, Non-Stop Abundance!
Reflect upon what you’ve written. Within your answers is valuable information or
clues about your destiny and possible directions for you to investigate.
Commit to taking a step, or several steps, towards living life on your terms by doing
more of the things that you truly enjoy. Perhaps there’s one idea that stands out to
you. If so, take a step in that direction and give it a try!
The whole point of the exercise is to allow yourself to do things that you truly want
to do and to discover more of yourself in the process.

Looking for a romantic relationship? Here`s how you find your soulmate!

Looking for a romantic relationship? You don’t need dating services, you don’t need to frequent nightspots and you don’t need to ask your friends to set you up.

Law of Attraction relationships are natural and easy! All you need to do is to use the Law of Attraction to create the energetic environment of being ready and willing to have someone share your life. It’s a process that uses the immense creative forces of your mind.

Law of Attraction relationships are natural and easy because you’ve created an energetic environment that attracts exactly the type of person you want. You do it anyway (we all do)! Having the knowledge that you can influence your personal energy and what that energy attracts will improve all of your relationships AND attract that special someone.
The Law of Attraction is very simple: like attracts like. It’s a universal law that doesn’t play favorites. It doesn’t determine who is “worthy” of love. Your life mirrors what is going on inside you so attracting the right person means projecting the kind of energy they radiate.

To attract a relationship using the Law of Attraction, follow these steps:

1. Raise your vibration. Would you rather be around someone who is happy and centered or frustrated and angry? It’s an obvious answer but it’s hard to see yourself objectively. Many people say they are optimistic and happy, but if you listen to what they say and the energetic vibe you get, you see that they are neither.

What are the vibrations you’re projecting?What sort of ‘vibe’ are people picking up on from you? How do you see yourself, and how do others see you? Are you cheerful or depressed? Desperate or confident? It may be hard to perceive the energy that others are feeling so look around you at the state of your relationships – are people naturally drawn to you or do you find yourself left out? Are your relationships healthy?

You can only attract what you project, so raising your vibration will draw the right person to you. Use the Love or Above Spiritual Toolkit to increase your personal energy frequency.

2. Be happy! Many people assume that they will be happy when… “I have the perfect mate, job, home, money, etc.” They pin their hopes on some future event that will miraculously make life good. But happiness does not lie in these things. They contribute to your life experience, but they are not the source of happiness. YOU are the source of your happiness! Be happy so that the energy you project attracts happy people. Use the Spiritual Toolkit to raise your vibration and happiness.
Love attracts love. Radiate love!Also – be aware that if you project the energy of lack (“I don’t have anyone to love“) or need (“I need someone in my life“) you will attract lack and need. Instead, focus on being happy with what IS and invite that special someone to share your awesome, happy, fulfilling and rich life.

3. Have a passion. A person with a passion or purpose feels ALIVE. It’s such an awesome feeling, isn’t it, to be totally immersed in doing something you love! You’re full of energy, enthusiasm and happiness… the life force is very strong. Other people pick up on that vibe too! You’ll find yourself attracting people with the same passions – and people will be attracted to your strong life force. Your passion may be the basis for a new relationship!

4. Be interested in other people. Obvious, but tricky. Everyone loves to talk about themselves and to be the object of attention from another person but unless you become good at being fascinated by other people, they will pick up on your “it’s all about ME” attitude (very off-putting). If you’ve ever been on a date with a person who only talks about themselves and shows zero interest in you, then you know what this feels like. Date over! Cultivate an interest in people by being fascinated by the differences and similarities between human beings. What makes you tick? What is life like from your vantage point? What are your philosophies?

Use the Law of Attraction to find exactly the right person for you!

5. Radiate love. It can be tempting to criticize and judge people… even in the spirit of wanting to help them improve themselves. But don’t! Your way is not necessarily their way. What’s good and right for you may be all wrong for them. Instead, radiate love to all you meet. You can silently say, “I love you” to everyone. Sure, everyone! The person at the checkout, the customer service rep on the phone, the person in the car in front of you, friends you haven’t seen in years… Meditation is a great time to do this. Starting off a meditation session by stream-of-consciousness naming people and saying, “I love to you” is a really powerful vibration-lifter. Don’t forget the people you are having difficulties with – in fact focus your love energy on them!

Doing random little kindnesses for people is a great way to foster a feeling of love. Something small, like a quick note or phone call to say, “I’m thinking about you” can make someone’s day.

And don’t forget yourself! Love yourself! Treasure your quirky, weird little habits. Cherish your talents and gifts. See your beauty. Feel your worthiness. Feel your one-ness with all.

Happiness attracts happiness

6. Smile. A smile is a powerful thing, more than a bunch of muscles contracting in your face. It has a huge emotional impact. You can instantly change your mood and go from stressed to serene, grumpy to giggly and “go away” to “welcome.” Smiles are much more attractive than frowns or sad faces. A smile raises your vibration instantly! Start the day off by smiling at yourself in the mirror (and don’t forget to say, “I love you” to yourself!)

So, are you feeling more optimistic about finding love using the Law of Attraction?

Always remember that like attracts like, so raise your personal energy to brilliant new heights and attract the person you’ve always dreamed of!

So he said come on out a little further – came out a little further, it was right at his mouth – my man, I’m not about to go back in this guy is out of his mind. And the old man said: “I thought you said you wanted to be successful?” He said: “I do.” He said: “Then walk a little further.” He came, dropped his head in, held him down, hold him down, my man (kept scratching) hold him down, he had him held down, just before my man was about to pass out, he raised him up. He said: “I got a question for you.” He told the guy, he said: “When you want to succeed as bad as you wanna breathe than you will be successful.”

Why Religion Is Dangerous, Out-dated, & Spiritually Toxic

One of the main things we need to do as a society is let go of paradigms of thought that are false and are no longer serving us.  There is nothing more toxic to the soul or dangerous to your development as a person to believe in something that is wrong, misguided, and outdated.

What I am talking about here specifically is religion.  Now let me be clear. I’m not talking about religious texts necessarily, or God, or Christ, or Buddha, or any of the wisdom contained within various religions.  I am talking about religious fundamentalism as it currently exists.

There is a difference between having a personal relationship with God and being buried head-deep in religious dogma and spiritual ignorance.  There is a difference between reading the Bible and other ancient texts as sources of spiritual wisdom and accepting everything in them as being literally true at face value.  Most importantly, there is a different between being religious and being spiritual.

I grew up in a church, went to a Christian private school, was home-schooled under a Christian curriculum, and used to have church services at my house. Since then, I have been heavily involved in theological thought, apologetics, and philosophy.  I say this because I am well-versed in Christianity, and in all honesty, I think that most of the New Atheists and anti-religious people despise religion because they are ignorant, angry at God for something, or have a misunderstanding of the religions they hate.  But in this article, we are going to explore things from a non-emotional and purely objective point of view.

god-hates-you-2

Here are 3 reasons why all forms of religious fundamentalism is dangerous, out-dated, & spiritually toxic.

*Note: There is a difference between holding religious faith in something and being a hardcore religious fundamentalist or extremist.

1) Religion is man-made

When people think of religion, one of the first things that pops into their minds is Catholicism.  Mary is worshiped and prayed to, sins are confessed to priests, incense is burned, and the “Vatican” is this economic powerhouse adorned with gold and jewels.  None of these things are even mentioned as necessary in the Bible or by Jesus, and seeing as they are totally man-made, they cannot be seen as necessary.

Like really. Who is the pope, why is he on a thrown, why does he wear jewels, and why does he have so much money? How is this Biblical or even fair?

There is nothing wrong with sourcing wisdom from ancient books, but keep in mind that they are JUST ancient books.  If you grew up somewhere in nature and were completely unexposed to culture, you could very well develop a relationship with God through his revelation in nature and in your conscience.  But you would never leave that forest as a Muslim, a Mormon, or a Hindu.  There is nothing about meditating in a forest for 40 years in search of a relationship with the Creator that will teach you the propositions “God hates f*gs” or “Allah wants the world to become Muslim”.

You aren’t born as a religious fundamentalist, and there is no natural experience that would cause you to become a religious fundamentalist.  You are born as a soul in a body capable of connection with God.  If religion acted as a catalyst for you, that’s great.  If it works for you and adds value to your life (as it even has to mine to a degree), the that is also great.  But it’s learned, man-made, and not necessary.  In fact, most people it actually acts as a hindrance and a virus, as we will explore in the next point.

2) Religion prevents spiritual growth, critical thought, and honest reflection

Religion puts your consciousness into a box and keeps it there.  Anything new you learn of experience MUST be understood in terms of your religious framework.  For example, let’s say you have a crazy experience while you are sleeping and have an extremely vivid dream of a dark shadow who won’t stop looking at you through the mirror.  A religious person may say “That was a demon”, and then close the book on the case.

A more spiritual person may say, was that a shadow aspect of me? Was that a reflection of my subconscious mind? Was it an alien, an astral entity, or some other form of spirit trying to show something to me symbolically by appearing to me as my reflection?  Spirituality encourages you to look, reflect, and analyze from a non-biased place in order to discover the answers for yourself.  Religion spoon-feeds you the supposed answers and then discourages further introspection (unless that introspection fits within the framework of that religion).

It also discourages search for meaning and mystery in life because it already assumes it has the answers.  People read the texts literally and then stop searching.  What happens when we die?  “Well you either go to heaven or hell depending on whether or not you are saved”, and that is the end of the discussion.  We don’t even know what gravity is, what 90% of the matter in the universe is, how consciousness works, or how life started on this planet, but we know for certain cut and dry what happens to the human soul when it leaves the body because there are a handful of verses about it in some religious texts?

The creation of the universe is mysterious and awe-inspiring.  How space and time came into being, the insane amount of energy that would have had to be present at the first moment in time, the speed of the expansion of the universe, the presence of finely tuned initial conditions and universal constants that were plugged in at the moment of creation to allow for things like matter to even exist, the development of elements, stars, planets, galaxies, and life.  Religious people will think to themselves “God did it” and then hang-up any further intellectual pursuits because they have a nice tidy mental picture of how everything happened.

And if someone wants to deviate outside of fundamentalism and try to combine the worlds of spirituality and science, they get called “lost” because they believe there is more to the creation process than the 6 day Adam and Eve story.

It can sometimes prevent honest philosophical, scientific, and spiritual inquiry into the raw nature of reality.  If you are having a hard time believing that there is other life in the universe, that the universe is as old as modern science tells us, or that evolution is impossible because or what was/wasn’t written down on animal skins 3000 years ago, I think it’s time to step outside of your fundamentalism a little bit.

3) Religion creates separation

If all religions preach peace, why aren’t all religions peaceful?  If the core of most religions is love, community, and God, why is there so much hatred, war, and violence?  Here is why. When you learn something unnatural to your natural state of being and use it to define yourself, you begin to identify your sense of self with your belief system.  “I am a Mormon”, really means that my sense of individuality is now consumed by what it means to be “Mormon”.

When “I am” identifies with an ideology, it sees other people through the veil of that ideology.  “I am a Mormon, and that person is a Christian. They are lost and in need of direction because they believe false things”.  Instead of feeling the aliveness of another person and connecting with them at a heart-to-heart level, you begin to judge them based on what man-made ideology they identify with which results in competition and resentment. “That’s my neighbour John, yeah he’s secular and needs to be saved.  Allah does not love non-believers so I don’t know if I should either.” And then we carry on interacting with them with a background sense of pity or non-acceptance.

There is a hesitation within religious people to fully accept and embrace ‘sinners’ and non-believers in their faith.  “Oh wow, he was a really nice guy” becomes replaced with “Oh wow, he was really nice for an atheist”, or “I didn’t know Hindus were so open-minded”.  Instead of seeing and experiencing your sense of unity with other people, it becomes a game of “this persons belongs to that religion, and they believe some weird sh*t that’s different from what I believe.”

We need to focus on having religious experiences, not religious beliefs

Religion without spirituality is the real issue here.  I’m not saying you can’t be both spiritual and religious, but being religious is not sufficient if you want to live a spiritually fulfilling life and connect with God.  Everyone is entitled to believe what they want to believe, but there comes a point at which we need to compromise our beliefs is the contradict our experience of reality.

I feel that any people who are religious who may be offended of this article would be totally liberated if they did a thought experiment where they allowed themselves to become silent and detach from their belief systems.  What if you allowed yourself for just a few minutes to experience a state of consciousness that isn’t premised on religious beliefs?

What if in that silence, you found a bigger and better version of God that you didn’t know existed?  What if you stopped trying to “learn” and started trying to experience?  What if we stopped living as humans who believe in God and started living as humans connected to God in a real untainted way?  What if your rigid belief systems are preventing you from stepping into the fullness of an experience of God because you are convinced of a view of God that is too narrow?

We shouldn’t believing in something because it makes us feel comfortable. We should believe it if it is true and stands its ground against evidence and logical defeaters.  As someone who is heavily involved in Christian apologetics and theological philosophy, I am not saying that we need to get rid of God and move into atheism.  We need to get rid of religious fundamentalism and move into a personal experience of our true nature which is already connected to God.

Nobody knew him – he read The Secret – Now he is The Star of Jurassic World!

In 2010, Chris Pratt was still a little-known actor on Parks and Recreation, but he was already making big predictions for his future, albeit unknowingly.

 

Five years ago, Pratt filmed a behind-the-scenes video on his NBC comedy in which he pretends to be blowing off Steven Spielberg.

 

“I just got a text message from Steven Spielberg — so annoying,” Pratt joked in the video. “I’ll have to get back to you later about Jurassic Park 4.”

 

Five years later, Pratt is just days away from opening night of his summer film, Jurassic World.


“It was a joke that I made,” Pratt told ET during the Jurassic World junket.

 

“I guess it just goes to show that if you read the book The Secret and you put things out there, they all come true,” he said.

At the time when he was fake-texting Spielberg, Pratt weighed about 300 pounds and was yo-yo dieting for roles.

 

“I was looking into the future,” Pratt said. “I was like, ‘There’s this job. I really want that job. I need to get in shape.’ But it was when I saw the movie Zero Dark Thirty for the first time where I was like, ‘Damn, I believe that guy is kind of like a believable tough guy.'”

 

 

The 35-year-old actor made another “prediction” during our interview.

“I guess I would put out there that I apologize for how long I went on in my Oscar speech,” Pratt joked. “I am really thrilled about the Oscar that I won for Best Cinematography, oddly.”

 

Here are 3 lessons you can take home with you from Chris Pratt.

  • Think Big, Dream Big and Aim High! You can achieve anything your minds can conceive and believe!
  • Fake it till you make it! See yourself already having the good you desire and act as if it`s already happening to you!
  • Take action and never lose focus! Dreams don`t work unless you do so take massive action and go get what you want!

90% of Successful People Use This to Create Their Dream Life! How about you?

It`s been said that Visualization is the great secret of success! Every time you hear a story of success understand that behind it is always someone who had a big dream and the will to believe in that idea, picture or vision. Vision boards became very popular since the release of the Movie The Secret where John Assaraf showed everyone how his vision board became a reality.

To become more scientific it is said that any idea which is held in your conscious mind and repeated with emotion will become impressed in your subconscious mind and in time manifest itself in it`s physical equivalent.

 

Here is where vision boards can be a very fun way for you to form the mental images of the goals you want to achieve in your life.

 

So are you on board to create your Vision Board? 

Here are the steps:

 

1.Determine the Format of Your Vision Board.

Vision boards don’t always have to be a physical board; it might be your computer’s screensaver, background on your phone or pages in your planner. Observe your actions throughout the day and determine the best place for this board to be in your view frequently.

Your Vision Board can be a physical one or it can be digital. Nowadays, digital vision boards are very popular but we know that some of you prefer the good ol` fashion wood and paper ones.

There are many softwares that can be very useful in creating your vision board, some of them can be found free online… just google them. Photoshop or Powerpoint are usually good and simple softwares to help you create them

Here are some formats you should have in mind:

– A wallpaper or poster

– An inspiration wall

– A computer screensaver or desktop cover

– A screensaver on your phone

2.Decide what you want

Your Vision Board usually reflects the lifestyle you wish to experience in your life. When you`re creating your goals have in mind these following areas: Health and Wellness, Relationships, Finances, Business, Spiritiality, Lifestyle, Charity, Cars, Houses, Places to Travel. Another idea for a vision board is to choose only one area of life and expand on that!

 

3.Choose vivid pictures and images

Sky is the limit when it comes to finding images with anything you desire! Praise Google!

Try to take the necessary time and find the right pictures which really cause you to feel good! Connecting with your vision board on an emotional level is the most important thing!

Make sure that you include pictures of yourself and your loved ones in your vision boards, some of us even crop their faces onto pictures with their desired body or driving their dream car and so on! This makes the process more fun and vivid!

Collect as many pictures as possible, you will probably let go of a few when you start fine tuning your board.

 

4.Layout and arrangements

Create a structure for your board, you can draw some guide lines on it which will represent where the pictures will go.

It`s always a good idea to put the most important pictures and goals in the middle and leave the secondary ones to the side.

Quotes, affirmations or writing down your goals below the picture is always recommended and gives more power to the visualization process.

Try to personalize it as much as possible with your name, personal pictures, affirmations and phrases in the present tense.

 

5.Display it

Vision boards are not “set and forget” so make sure you display your vision board in a place where you can review it often. We recommend you use it in as many places as possible (on your computer, on your phone, a physical one in your room and bathroom, on your office.

6.Relax – Visualize – Manifest

Vision boards work best when you are in a relaxed, cheerful state! Your subconscious mind must be receptive to your new dreams and goals so make sure that you feel the emotion of already having what`s on your vision board.

Make it a daily ritual to use your vision board! Review it in the morning and review it before you retire to bed at night, these are two time frames when your subconscious mind is very receptive! Have fun with it and let the Universe reward you with it`s abundance, health and well-being!

Have fun Creating!
