Is Newton’s Law helping you or stopping you from getting what you want?

The law of equal and opposite reaction is either helping you or stopping you from getting what you want. In this video, I link three principles together to help you start acting in accordance with these laws and you’ll start to get what you want.

Laws:

  • Newton’s law of equal and opposite reaction
  • The principle of living in the moment, and
  • The Law of Compensation

 

Conquer Any FEAR or Anxiety in 30 Seconds

A few years ago when my son was deployed to Aphganistan as a Black Hawk pilot in the US Army I had some anxious moments. War now became very real for me. To think that an enemy wanted to kill my son was very worrisome to me. I had never really suffered from anxiety before or great fear.

During this same year, my business went through some major changes and my income was reduced. That caused a great deal of anxiety too. I had to really resolve this issue. It’s not good to live in fear and anxiety. These emotions just don’t feel very good. It was starting to consume me and I know from prior experience, what I focus on, I find. I was giving life to my fears and anxiety and had to get back to peace and joy, the two emotions I do best with.

That’s when I developed a strategy to remove these emotions. With practice, I was able to remove these negative emotions just about as fast as I got them. Let me share my discovery with you.

Replace Anxiety & Fear with Peace & Joy

There are six distinct steps in the 30-second process. I’ve discovered that I can’t exempt any of the steps. Trust me, I’ve tried. In the beginning, using this method it would take

Keto-Adaptation; you are what you save from what you eat

Keto-Adaptation to Low Carbohydrate Diets

Some highlights of the presentation

Low-carbohydrate diets remain a fridge concept.

What’s insulin resistance? How does this lead to weight gain?

Low-carb diets are breaking many health records.

You are not not what you eat. You are what you save from what you eat.

Daring greatly; what’s it like in the arena?

I’ve often thought why sports are a big part of American culture. Billions are spent on it annually. Fans flock to opinion talk shows and discussion groups are flooded with arguments why an athlete is or isn’t good.

As a fan I have my favorite teams. I have my favorite athletes. I’ve been on the courts and field of play. I’ve had fans yell for me and against me.

Perhaps sports are a microcosm view of life. Especially in the pursuit of owning your own business. Being employed for yourself, by yourself, completely independent as an entrepreneur is always scary.

One of my favorite excerpts from a talk is a corollary to entrepreneurship. It reads:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

(Excerpt from the speech “Citizenship In A Republic” delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910 by Theodore Roosevelt)

I honor all those athletes who dare greatly. I have little regard for the talking heads and especially fans who express disdain for an athlete as if to judge him/her for not making the fan’s team or perhaps the fan’s prediction look good.

I honor those daring greatly in the independent pursuit of entrepreneurship.

They are each to be honored and respected. Not the critic or skeptic “who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.”

Each of my heroes, an athlete or entrepreneur,  who “strive[s] to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”

Daring greatly is a way of life for some.

No wonder the athletes and entrepreneurs never hear the jeers from the critics and skeptics in the stands. Critics are everywhere only to watch (and judge). Critics are to fearful to play and dare greatly because they couldn’t take what they dish out.

The only courage is from those on the field of dreams.

High Ketosis, Low Ketosis; Does it matter?

There are various degrees of ketosis depending on your needs. According to the chart below a Glucose:Ketone Index (GKI) below 3 is “Therapeutic ketosis” that the medical profession uses to treat epilepsy and cancer. A range between 3 and 6 would be “Moderate/functional ketosis” and desirable for obesity, type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. Lower on the index, between 6 and 9, is “low ketosis” and used for maintenance, optimal health and weight loss. Any thing above 9 there is no ketosis.

The glucose ketone index published study

From Wikipedia we learn that “Ketosis is a metabolic state in which some of the body’s energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis in which blood glucose provides most of the energy.

Ketosis is a nutritional process characterized by serum concentrations of ketone bodies over 0.5 m/mol, with low and stable levels of insulin and blood glucose. It is almost always generalized with hyperketonemia,
