The Banana Experiment! An Important Life Lesson For You!

Here is The Experiment:

A group of scientists placed 5 monkeys in a cage and in the middle, a ladder with bananas on top.

Every time a monkey went up the ladder, the scientists soaked the rest of the monkeys with cold water.


After a while, every time a monkey went up the ladder, the other ones beat up the one on the ladder.

After some time, no monkey dared to go up the ladder regardless of the temptation.

Scientists then decided to substitute one of the monkeys. The first thing this new monkey did was to go up the ladder. Immediately the other monkeys beat him up.

After several beatings, the new member learned not to climb the ladder even though never knew why.

The second monkey was substituted and the same occurred. The first monkey participated on the beating for the second monkey. A third monkey was changed and the same was repeated. The fourth was substituted and the beating was repeated and finally the fifth monkey was replaced.

What was left was a group of 5 monkeys that even though never received a cold shower, continued to beat up any monkey who attempted to climb the ladder.

If it was possible to ask the monkeys why they would beat up all those who attempted to go up the ladder, I bet their answer would be: “I don’t know. That’s how things are done around here”


Don’t follow others behaviors, think before you follow.

Even though this story is debated to be not true online, you must agree that it sends a strong message about the society we live in today.

Don’t miss the opportunity to share this with others as they might be asking themselves why we continue to do what we are doing if there is a different way out there. 

The Banana Experiment

Do this Every Day and You`ll Never Again Have Problems With Low Energy and Stress!

We all know how important it is to have a positive attitude and keep up the good vibes. Actually, the attitude and level of enthusiasm we keep on a daily basis impacts all the results we get in all areas of our lives.

You are more likely to remain healthy, maintain good relationships, get a promotion or increase your income when you have a great attitude or you are in a positive vibration and… of course… we know how The Law of Attraction Works.

Here are 7 ways to raise your vibration:

The power of intention

Always start the day with the intention to make it a great day! Most people never consciously use their power of intention and just let the day happen to them. Studies have shown that people who consciously intend to have a great day are more productive, happier and they usually get what they expect!

Repeat to yourself when you get up in the morning: “I`m going to make this a great day!” repeat this 5-10 times out loud until you start getting emotionally involved with that positive affirmations.

Write down your goals

Putting down your goals on paper after you wake up is a great exercise to keep your mind focused on your objectives. Writing down your goals helps you re-program your subconscious mind to focus on manifesting what you want.

Brian Tracy, world renowned motivational and success expert says that writing down a list of your top 10 goals in the morning is the best success advice he can give to anyone. It takes less than 5 minutes but it turbocharges your mindset and attitude.



A healthy mind and a healthy body go hand in hand. Stretching for a few minutes when you feel exhausted or feeling down is a great way to get a new charge of energy. Tony Robbins, the world`s leading personal development coach always emphasizes the importance of the correct physiology.

You can actually influence your mindset by holding a correct body posture!


Drink plenty of water and eat something healthy

Drinking plenty of water and eating salads and fruit can help your body energize and cleanse itself. Negative factors have effects on our body`s metabolism releasing stress hormones which are flushed out through proper nutrition.


Meditation has numerous benefits in all the aspects of well-being

It can help you concentrate better, rest, improve your immune system, remain calm and mindful and many more.

Visualization meditation is a key factor in internalizing your dreams and wants in your subconscious mind. The bestselling book and movie “The Secret” talks about the direct link between Visualizing and Activating The Law of Attraction and encourages you to meditate for at least 15 minutes every day.

There are many ways to meditate and we encourage you to explore and discover the best one that fits your needs and personality.


Listen to an inspirational audiobook while you commute

Either when driving, taking a bus or just having a walk take the opportunity of listening to something inspirational. By listening to 30-40 minutes a day from a personal development audiobook you can get the equivalent of 50 books per year. You can earn a degree in Success just by applying this simple method and your attitude will be awesome!

Spend time in nature

The concrete Jungle can sometimes lower our energy level and even make us forget where we come from! Taking some time every week to go somewhere in nature or even having a daily walk in the park has shown to help people decrease stress levels, anxiety, and even depression in some cases.


7 Simple Techniques to Raise Your Energy Levels, Vibration and Feel Awesome!

The Secret Revealed: 7 reasons why the Law of Attraction is not working for you!

Millions of people from all over the world are learning about The Law of Attraction and wake up to the idea that we are the creators of our realities.


The book and movie “The Secret” had a lot to do with this. Since its release in 2006, it is said that over 300 million people have been impacted by it. But with all the information and with all the opportunities happening in our world today, Nightingale-Conant Statistics show that 95% of people who follow these programs never get any results
Why is this happening?

Here are 7 reasons why The Secret might not be working for you.

  • Reading and applying are not the same thing: While we can read hundreds of books and have a lot of information in our heads, we really use very little of what we know. For example everybody knows how to be healthy and fit but very few people do it.
  • Conscious level vs. Subconscious level: If we want to make a real change we have to internalize what we learn on our subconscious level, in simple terms: “Move out of our heads and into our hearts”. The Secret talks about getting into the Vibration of what we want. That means to get emotionally involved! The emotions reside in the Subconscious mind!
  • Visualization: Very few people actually take the time to spend a minimum of 15 minutes a day to totally relax and visualize what they want. How about you? Do you actually visualize what you want or are you letting your present results influence your thinking and state of vibration?
  • Affirmations: also named Auto-Suggestion is the best technique to influence our subconscious mind and change the results we are getting. The subconscious mind doesn`t know the difference between what`s real and what`s imagined. If you visualize and affirm certain things they will become your reality.
  • Daily Study: reading or listening to an inspirational book every day is like mental fitness. It sharpens your mind and works with your mindset. Pretty soon you will be amazed with the changes that will happen in your life.
  • Writing it down: here is an example of how powerful writing your goals down can be:In 1979, there`s been a study on Harvard graduates on goal setting:

84% had no specific goals at all
13% had goals but they were not committed to paper
3% had clear, written goals and plans to accomplish them

In 1989, the researchers again interviewed the graduates of that class. You can guess the results:

The 13% of the class who had goals were earning, on average, twice as much as the 84 percent who had no goals at all.
Even more staggering – the three percent who had clear, written goals were earning, on average, ten times as much as the other 97 percent put together.

  • Mentoring: having a mentor is probably the best thing you can do for yourself because your mentors can use their experience and wisdom to help you achieve your success faster than you can ever do for yourself. Decide on what you want, find someone who already did it and ask him to help you!
