Self-think has the power to make or break anyone. The power of thought can be examined through word release and illustrated behaviors. In order to become whole, positive thinking must increase to escape random negative cycling. Advancing the fragments of your power key, unlocks the door to self-realization and success. Working your, you vision; scoping inner works; curing grounds, through planned demolition can be exciting and invigorating as it solidifies wholeness of health, love and soul. Time is worth its weight in gold, highly valuable, irrevocable, able to leap a mountain in a single bound, faster than a speeding bullet, totally performance measureable.

Many would agree that we never get enough of it, yet most people take it for granted and then draw back perplexed as to where it was all spent, having nothing substantial to show for it. That was the good news, here’s even better news, time, so long as it’s on your side welcomes your go at it. It is said that, until you value your time, no one will find you valuable. Wasting time sends a serious message to those who are or could be potential stakeholders toward your “making-me-over project”. In summary those who waste their own time pretty much would be of very little value to the next guy. Becoming whole in a fraction rich world, of individuals looking in all the wrong places, can be an erroneous and disappointing pursuit. Whole is something that begins and evolves within. People who think and live in fractional states are not doing so, because they were created that way. They delay wholeness and success because of poorly planned take-offs i.e. execution.

There are critical steps that if overlooked could potentially wind up much like a rocket exploding before getting off the ground. What’s in your hand, who’s heading plans, what’s in your way? These are important questions in the equation that should be taken seriously. Where are you going, before doing the ground work in the way of discovery? Coming to know self may not an easy pill to swallow, but if you begin to nibble on the truth after a while it does the body good. It may not taste so hot at first, in fact it might even stink, but it gives you a chance to remix the recipe cutting back here, adding there, mixing thus and such. Step 1, will begin by taking your mind, eye and ear off others, for a season. This is a critical time during which you will need to be a little selfish so that when you get back to being selfless you will be of greater value to self and others. Get to know the brand true you, the “not so bad after all” person that drives destiny and does not mind leaping even, against all odds. Looking at self is major but it ensures grounds for become one success, in three phases; “Demolition Readiness”; “Branding My Brilliance” & “Authentic and Loving It.” Demolition Readiness.

  1. Settle down, be still, increase focus and clarity
  2. Take a deep look at your authentic self
  3. Be honest assess the good, bad and indifferent
  4. Note the falsities, fruitless and potentially detrimental
  5. Be willing to make adjustments; evacuate/eliminate for the greater good
  6. Assess strengths, celebrate the discovery of developmental opportunities
  7. Schedule Demolition, begin with self
  8. Prepare your runway for both take-off and landing

How awesome it will be to discover that the whole, draw success from near and far, are magnets for love and frequent the “yes” zone. They are clear winners and people want to attach themselves to winning networks. Getting to the yes can be like daily bread, making you more than marketable, by becoming an unconquerable brand. Be mindful, time requires that you respect, maximize and honor the grace it offers. Don’t put off tomorrow what can anchor your win today. Get that slate straight, spend quality time with self. You deserve your undivided attention and will celebrate what you’ve done and become. Defy the eleventh hour’s grip as you have the power to break the bondage of procrastination. My clients used a dumpster in the 4th quarter of 2010 to move matters of mountainous effect. You may find …


Any time you are setting goals to improve your health and wealth, there are five steps that are crucial to your success. People can and do have success without implementing these steps, but I have found that kind of success to be random and sporadic. If you want sustained success and a happier life you must take what has been sporadic and make it systematic.

1. Identify WHAT you want – start with the end in mind and have a very clear picture of what you want. For example, if you want $1 million in net worth that would be the end in mind.

2. Decide WHEN you want it – without a time frame there is no way to tell if you are on track. The time frame has to be realistic. If you want $ 1 million in net worth within one year’s time and you currently have a $50,000 net worth, that may not be realistic.

3. Determine HOW you will accomplish it – every plan needs a strategy and tactics for it’s accomplishment. You must be able to determine through manageable steps whether you are on track or not. If your goal of $ 1 million in net worth is a 10 year goal and in the first three years you increase your net worth to $150,000 is that enough. Based on the HOW is that enough to get you there.

4. Now ask the question, WHY do I want this? – Too often the WHY question is never answered. Without the why, your wealth goal may just be a dream.

5. Do it now! – I am sure you have heard that before, but it bears repeating. Any plan to increase your net worth or improve your health is worthless unless you take immediate action.

Now, once you completed these steps you can repeat them as necessary. Don’t forget to review your overall goal and the steps you have committed to regularly. Then you can monitor your progress and make adjustments to the plan as necessary.

To your health and wealth.

Ever wanted to try an escape room, but didn’t know where to start looking for one, or what it really means? How about you’ve looked into what escape rooms are, but you don’t know how to begin the process of finding a game and then actually solving the puzzles to get out?

Lucky for you Brittnee is here! I’ll take you from start to finish on how to get the most out of your Escape Room Experience!

Step 1: Read this article

Just kidding

Step 1: Google and Yelp are your best friends

Google “Escape Room *YOUR CITY NAME*” and see what comes up. Dig deeper and check out the map so you can even find one closest you. Once you’ve found a few great prospects head over to Yelp and see how they compare to other rooms. Read a few of the reviews, you might even find out one is too scary for what you’re interested in.. or one doesn’t do well with kids.

Step 2: Check out their social media for promo codes

You’ve found the escape room you think you’d like to visit, awesome. You can Google and yelp like nobody’s business. Now you’ll want to see if they offer any special codes on their social media pages. We always have the best deals on our Facebook and Instagram at my escape room. Sometimes you’ll be able to find $5 off promo codes that wouldn’t be mentioned anywhere else.

Step 3: Go to their Website

Now that you’ve got your smarty pants discount, you’ll want to know when the place has availability and what rooms they have. The majority of the places you’re going to see will have multiple rooms with different themes. Also, most escape rooms make you book in advance and some can get pretty busy. Check out their booking page and see what they have open. Then book it before anyone else does!

*Be careful when booking a partial room. If there are 6 slots available and you’ve only booked 4 players, 2 more players could join your game – if you call the business though, they may help you out and block it for you

Step 4: Be on time!

Your Game Master will love you for it and being on his good side can’t be a bad thing. A game master is the one offering you any hints or clues if you’re struggling after all.

Step 5: Listen to the Rules/Intro

They’re there for a reason! Not only do we hate when guests break stuff, but we’ll usually tell you how to avoid things that will only waste your time! Remember we want you to have fun and get out! We won’t tell you not to climb on something as a trick. Also some rooms have informative intros that may even include a few extra hints, so listen up!

Step 6: No Lollygagging

Okay, now you’re in this gloriously decorated room and all you want to do is look at all the pretty details for the next 5 minutes. Nope. Don’t do that. Most rooms give you 60 minutes, so you’ll need to hustle. Give yourself 10 seconds to appreciate the work they put into the aesthetics and then start tearing it apart. (okay not literally, that would suck, just start moving things and looking every where)

Sometimes you’ll need to find objects hidden around the room to help you with other puzzles… sometimes you’ll need to actually find the puzzles… so start looking and gathering everything you find!

Step 7: Split up

Some rooms are harder than others or have more puzzles than others, but there’s no harm in splitting up. Some rooms have multiple linear and non linear puzzles (linear meaning you will solve a puzzle that leads into the next puzzle and so on). So you’ll benefit from splitting into a couple teams and tackling multiple puzzles at once.

Step 8: Communicate with your Group

There’s nothing worse than spending 10 minutes looking for a key your teammate found when they first entered and forgot they had pocketed it. Don’t be that person. When you find something tell everyone, maybe they’ll need it right away or at some …


Welcome to part 3 of the web course. Each part will reveal a new technique on how to build consistency into your exercise routine and turn that once hated event into a consistent pleasure where you reap the benefits. Say good bye to punishment, frustration, and feelings of being overwhelmed and say hello to your new life.

Ok, we are now flying. Hopefully you have read and completed parts 1 and 2. If not, please go to the link at the bottom of this article. This next part is where we really start to deviate from what you are used to. We are going to reveal the key steps to truly making progress on your fitness quest and enjoy the process.

Like we said in part 2 of this course, if you are not enjoying the process, you are not likely to be consistent. If you enjoy what you are doing, you can be consistent forever.

Now that you have your target and why you want it from parts 1 and 2, you are ready to turn it into a reality. Remember in part 1, when we talked about writing down what you really want and not to worry if it seems unattainable and how you will not be judging yourself based on that large goal? Well, we didn’t forget.

No punishment, frustration feeling overwhelmed!

We will do our best to keep this next section short for this article. You can always get the FULL course by following the link at the bottom of this article. It’s free, so don’t let cost slow you down.

You have your goal and it is probably a big one. You might be thinking,

“How in the world can I possibly achieve that?”

The first step is to put that thought out of your mind. When you are thinking about your goal, jump right over the how you are going to achieve it, and only think about all the why’s you wrote down in part 2 and how great it is going to feel when you get there.

In this section is the only, and we mean the only time you are to think about how you are going to achieve your goal. Don’t worry, we will make it easy. You are only to think about what is your next step to achieve your goal.

And, you want your next step to be small.

The next step should be something easy and comfortably achieved in about one month or loss.

The key word is “comfortably” achieved.

You can always do more or achieve the next step faster. Don’t worry about choosing incorrectly, because we have a whole system in part 4 of this course to correct any errors.

Your body target will keep you on course, so all you have to focus on now is achieve your next step and how great it is going to feel when you achieve your body target.

Simple enough?

Please download our full course, if you want tons of examples on how to go about choosing your next step.

Your next step needs to be small and truly a next step. If you haven’t worked out for a long time, maybe your next step should be working out for 15 minutes / three times per week. You can always do more, but if you make your goal too high at first; you will be setting yourself up for defeat.

What is the number reason people fail from part 1?

“They set themselves up to lose before they even start.”

Remember, your next step is from where you are at now. If you never worked out before, have someone else build a work out program, but make sure it is something you can do and you will enjoy. Don’t worry if the program seems too small, you are building the habit of working out. You can always increase your intensity once working out has become a habit.

Finally, please, please, please make sure your doctor knows what your next step is and he or she approves of it. Your health is too important to over do it or get yourself hurt. By becoming consistent, your body will adapt. …


The direct commitment of senior management and the participation of employees in the development of workplace health policies are an essential prerequisite to the successful implementation of policies that are designed to address the real needs of the working community.

The following main steps and/or activities should be considered in the development and implementation of workplace health management at the enterprise level:

· Develop a short policy statement from the employer or senior executive that explicitly states senior management’s commitment to and acceptance of responsibility for the health management strategy within the company.

· Educate managers and workers on the impact of environmental, occupational and lifestyle factors on their health and social well-being and on the economic situation and competing ability of the company to facilitate their participation in health management.

· Determine the role of the medical, nursing, environmental and safety experts and other professionals needed to assist in the implementation of the health management strategy in the company.

· Discuss economic appraisal of existing and projected outcomes to health, safety, and environmental health from the activities of the company.

· Train staff in quality management principles and standards to be used for the workplace health management system. These are the same as those applied to quality assurance in the management of manufacturing, servicing or marketing operations.

· Assure participation of management and employees in the development and implementation of workplace health management systems in the company.

· Develop adequate tools for monitoring and evaluation of health, safety, social, economic and environmental outcomes to determine the impact on well-being of employees and competitiveness of the company.

· Introduce systematic internal auditing and evaluation to be able to make necessary adjustments to the workplace health management system of the company.

· External audit by a recognized certifying body, if necessary.

Key steps in implementing workplace health Policies

The prerequisite for establishing good practice in workplace health management in companies is the conscious and creative support as well as the fullest possible participation of senior management, employees and their trade union representatives.

They would co-operate in the development of the workplace health policy and in its implementation with the assistance of appropriate experts, e.g. from occupational health services, environmental health services or health promotion agencies, preferably from multidisciplinary preventive services. Quality management systems and internal and external auditing is believed to be supportive to the creation and maintenance of a healthy enterprise. Leading companies are increasingly integrating their health management and environment management into the overall corporate management system. The health and environment policy of the company determines targets, define processes, and assure financial and human resources necessary to act on the health determinants and improve social and physical environments in order to:

  • Create the greatest gain in health and working ability for the entire staff, and if possible, also for their families
  • Provide a safe and healthy working environment for employees while preserving the general environment and health of people living outside the premises
  • provide healthy and environmentally friendly products and services
  • ensure human rights of the entire staff

Sounds familiar to you? There are just too many offers and promos out there when it comes to joining a gym, and I've heard enough. It's upsetting when some of them are misleading and only make it tougher for you to decide … so here are some pointers to help you choose a perfect gym you can call home. 🙂

Choosing the right gym has a huge impact on how well you adhere to your fitness program – for example, if it's really out of the way but cheap, what are the odds you'll be going regularly? A health club membership isn't something you buy and don't use – instead, the more you use it, the more you will get back, and the better value you get out of it.

So before you decide to sign on that membership contract, it only makes sense that you also 'shop around' first. Attractive prices and promotions can be tempting, but COST and the HOT female salesperson or front desk girl IS NOT everything when it comes to choosing the right gym for you.

FIRST, narrow down your selection to a few potential health clubs that you like, and then take the following suggestions into consideration (in no particular order) to guide you in making the right choice:


For you to adhere to your fitness routine and not find it a hassle to workout – going to the gym needs to be convenient for you. You're more likely to use a club if it's close to your home or workplace. You won't go if it's far away, or if you have to constantly endure traffic jams just to get to workout. If you join a club that isn't convenient for you, you'll eventually find an excuse to stop going. When I first joined Fitness First back in 2003, it was less than a 5 minute drive from my workplace, and it still is – but the nearest one from my home was 20 km away. But now that there's a new Fitness First in Bukit Tinggi, Klang – the gym is 5 minutes away from home too. I've now got the best of both worlds. Lucky me.


Make sure you 'test drive' the gym BEFORE you sign up. Sales people / Membership Consultants / Sweet Young thing, or whatever you call them – are well trained to hype up the benefits of the gym, so it is essential that you yourself actually try out some of the equipment and get a feel of the actual atmosphere BEFORE you sign up. You'll need at least a day pass to try out the gym and decide for yourself before you sign up.

Check the gym's website for a day pass – almost always given out for free. Come at the same time you plan to come in the future, get changed, work out, maybe try a class, have a shower, relax, and then go home. Then, you decide.


When you tour the club, pay attention to details. How clean is the facility? Is the music too loud? Are all the equipment in working order? Too many '' out of order '' signs may indicate poor maintenance. Are new members provided with a club orientation and instruction on how to use equipment? Make sure the club is a place where you would enjoy spending time, cos if you don't – once again, it's only a matter of time before you start making excuses not to go.


This is depends on one's personal preference – if group classes are what gets you going and motivated, then find a gym that offers a good mix at a time that suits your schedule. Some fitness centers have classes as early as 7AM – so there's always something for someone out there. Personally for me, even if the group studio comes crashing down, it wouldn't really affect me because …

10 Steps to Reach Your Fitness Goals


Summer is quickly approaching and the beaches will soon welcome bikinis and swim trunks. Are you ready? Well, don’t worry. If you’re not prepared to brave the throngs of people flocking to the beaches, here is a plan to get you in shape.

Step # 1 Start by setting your specific fitness goals

A.Make sure your goals are realistic. You can safely loose 1-2.5 pounds per week. So a realistic goal would be “I want to loose 30 pounds by August 1, 2009. This would be a realistic goal.

Step #2 Set a realistic target date

A.Losing weight should be a long-term goal for a healthy lifestyle. Think of setting great nutrition and exercise habits that will last a lifetime.

B.Changing your lifestyle can be very stressful in the beginning; the stress levels increase when you add the weight of an unattainable goal. Setting unrealistic weight loss dates can lead to frustration causing you to give up.

Step #3 Make sure your goals are your personal goals

A.Decide what you want for yourself. Is it a life of improved overall fitness or lower blood pressure? Know that the goals you set for yourself is not a reflection of what others have set for you.

B.The pressure of starting a new program combined with the expectations of others can often be overwhelming. Share your goals only with people whom you feel will encourage and support you. If you are in an environment where others are not supporting your efforts, DO NOT share your goals with them. Misery loves company. So, surround yourself with positive people.

Step # 4 Is Simple. Write your goals down

A.Be creative with how you present your goals.

B.Find colorful paper to make your goals come to life.

Step #5 Post your goals and pictures

A.Place your goals where you can see them daily. Tape your goals to Your refrigerator, bathroom door, office computer, workstation or car Dashboard. Place your goals anywhere you spend a lot of time.

B.Visualization is 8 times faster than auditory learning. Use visual stimuli that include photographs, or those bikini/swim-trunks that you have been eyeing.

Step #6 Plan your meals accordingly

A.Part of a good plan begins with today. Make out a schedule that includes preparation time for meals.

B.Don’t use your schedule as an excuse to stop at the local fast food joint to get combo #1.

C.Never skip a meal. The most important meal of the day is breakfast. No, not Krispy Kremes and Starbucks, they are not a great way to start your day. Skipping meals during the day slows your metabolism down. When your metabolism slows down your body burns fewer calories, thus storing unnecessary fat. The reality is you must eat healthy in order to safely loose weight.

Items to Include Items to Exclude

Anything baked, grilled, or broiled Anything Fried

Protein from Chicken, or fish, tuna Soda

Low Fat Cheese Cheese

Water, Water and Water Juice

Whole Wheat Bread White Bread

Fresh Steamed Vegetables White Rice

Olive Oil Butter

Egg Whites Tap Water

Sweet Potatoes


Step #7 Write down your plan of action (Exercise)

A. In order to reach your goal you must have a plan of action.

B. Decide what steps are necessary to achieve your fitness goals.

C. OK, you have your goals and nutrition plan written. The next

Step is to plan your routine for movement. Cardiovascular Activities may include

one or more of the following:

1.Brisk walking, while pumping arms as if running

2. Jumping Rope

3.Walk-Run Combination


5.Pilates, Yoga


7.Bike riding

8.Walking your dog



Beginners 10-15 minutes

Intermediate 20-30 minutes

Advance 30-60 minutes

Step # 8 Keys to your Success

What you eat is 80 of your success rate. The other 20 percent is how you change your lifestyle to incorporate physical activities. Before beginning any fitness routine, please consult a physician.

Step #9 Be Patient

A. Ask yourself how long did it take to gain weight? If you average More than 2-3 years, it is realistic that you have developed bad habits over time. So, it will take at least 6 months to develop healthier habits.

B.Self Discipline and Follow Thru are the two …
