I think we all try to find ways where we feeling like we're moving forward in life. In this show I talk about how I feel like I'm moving forward and also how I feel like there comes a turning point in all our lives in which we actually can move forward and progress in the manner not only we hoped for but worked for.

I feel like at times we think we can do everything on our own when in fact we need help. I would say every successful person accepted help in some way. There are simply too many things to do and people to please to go at it alone.

 

I believe deep down we all have some sort of control issues. We need that control and without we feel like we lose a part of ourselves. Entrepreneurs, teachers, coaches and parents, we're all the same. We feel that absolutely no one can do it as good as us so we continue to struggle through life instead of accepting that help and understanding the only way to continue moving forward in life is to accept and carry on.

I'm often asked what type of supplements I take. When I respond, I get a puzzled look. The truth is I don't take supplements. There are many reasons I list in this show but for the most part I don't feel I need them. And truthfully I believe we could all take less (or maybe none) if we ate a more balanced diet.

I think we're all looking for something in this life, maybe it's peace, maybe it's happiness, maybe it's fortune and fame. Regardless here we are working towards a better life, through self improvement maybe even to find a deeper purpose.

 

Marc Allen put together his new book, Tantra for the West to help us understand life on a deeper level, maybe to find that contentment (however you see it), maybe happiness or maybe just a little understanding of how to enjoy your life. Marc explains how the word Tantra is about living in the now, how to appreciate each moment and how to push aside smaller forms of energy that affect our lives so much like anger, frustration, anxiety and more.

Living healthy is hard isn't it? I'm being serious here. We all know what it's like to try, try harder, and try again and see little results.  Think about all the changes you have to make when living a healthy lifestyle. You pretty much have to turn your entire life around, some entirely change everything.

We have to change our mind set, our approach to real health instead of a fad or diet, we need to realize we're in it for the long haul and that small steps are sustainable and that anything that comes easily will likely leave just as easily.

But just because it's hard, (I'm sure we're all in agreement on this one) doesn't mean it's okay not to try, not to put your best foot forward, not to get back up each and every time you get knocked down. The truth is we have excuses.

It was an absolute pleasure having Diana Lang on show to talk about her book Opening to Meditation. We haven't actually had this topic on the show before which I feel is kind odd except that I feel that we were actually waiting for Diana's interview.

It's an absolute breath of fresh air to hear Diana's perspective and how she talks about meditation. How 5 mins a day is okay to start with, how there are many different forms of meditation and to hear the passion and enthusiasm in her voice as she explains the unending benefits that meditations has to offer.

Diana Lang is the author of Opening to Meditation and the owner and director of the Lifeworks Center for Growth in Los Angeles, where she lives. She is also active in a variety of nonprofit international efforts to teach meditation and yoga.

Sometimes I feel that dad's get a bad wrap simply because in the recent past it seems more like single mothers are more likely to raise a child. Then of course we forget about all the fathers do a great job of raising their children. You even see more and more single father's in the today's day in age.

I had some very influential men in my life growing up that helped me turn into the person I am and I have friends that are incredibly caring and loving new fathers that are going to raise the bar for the next generation of parents.

I feel like in this day in age there's a whole lot of pressure to be a parent. I truly believe we are products of our environment so will it being the norm to get married young and have children what's one to think even they aren't sure or aren't ready to be a parent.

In this day in age I believe most of us have the mind set of more. We want more things instead of considering where it will go after it breaks and how the environment will be affected. We want bigger, louder, better when we don't think about quality over quantity. What about less instead of more and keep the 'better'?

And I'm not just talking about the thing we have, I'm talking about the way we go about life. What about looking at better quality food because it will give us the energy we need, what about a quality workout which could be shorter and efficient and you could get more out of it because it represents quality not quantity?
