A Message For The Advanced Souls

Soulsoothinsounds's Blog

Art by Maria Chambers

While there are many beautiful energies in the world, there are also plenty of horror stories occurring on Planet Earth.  You don’t even need to follow the news to tune into that energy.  

As long as we are living in duality, we will see behaviors that reflect that polarization to one degree or another.  We will see random acts of kindness right along with the most heinous of acts perpetrated toward other humans.

If you are reading this post, and are attracted to this kind of material, you are here to shine a light at a time when it is needed.   It doesn’t require you to be an activist, unless that brings you joy.  All that is required of you is to be here, on the planet.

The Key to Weight Loss Is Diet Quality, Not Quantity, a New Study Finds

Our Better Health

Anyone who has ever been on a diet knows that the standard prescription for weight loss is to reduce the amount of calories you consume.

But a new study, published Tuesday in JAMA, may turn that advice on its head. It found that people who cut back on added sugar, refined grains and highly processed foods while concentrating on eating plenty of vegetables and whole foods — without worrying about counting calories or limiting portion sizes — lost significant amounts of weight over the course of a year.

The strategy worked for people whether they followed diets that were mostly low in fat or mostly low in carbohydrates. And their success did not appear to be influenced by their genetics or their insulin-response to carbohydrates, a finding that casts doubt on the increasingly popular idea that different diets should be recommended to people based on their DNA makeup or on…

Everyone Needs Encouragement

LeadToday

This post has a pretty simple title. I?m hoping that everyone who reads this knows that unarguable fact.

Knowing it isn?t enough. If you?re a leader you must actually provide encouragement to your people. Consistent, planned and very intentional encouragement. Now, before you say that you ?do that all the time? stop for a moment and think. Think about the last time you actually stopped long enough to truly focus on someone else and provide them with meaningful encouragement.

How long has it actually been?

If you?re thinking that ?nice work? or ?keep it up? or ?way to go? is actually encouragement then I would suggest that you need to change your thinking. Passing someone in the hall and tossing a ?nice job? their way is not encouragement. It?s not a compliment and it most certainly doesn?t pass muster as a sincere Thank You.

Actual encouragement is the act of…

Everyone is Motivated

LeadToday

Do you believe that everyone is motivated? You may have come across someone lately who isn?t. You may even work with someone who seems like they are never motivated.

They may not be motivated today but they didn?t start out that way. Everyone starts out motivated… and then the world gets ahold of them. They start a new job and then they meet the boss, who it turns out is a champion at demotivating the team. Maybe they had a bit of bad luck and decided that life was against them.

Then they meet you and you assumed that because they aren?t motivated today they never were. That?s yet another reason it?s never good to assume.

If you?re a leader then one of your main responsibilities is to find ways to motivate your people. It?s easier to keep someone motivated than it is to drag them from the unmotivated depths…

A Positive Culture Starts With One Uplifting Person. Will That Be You?

Leading with Trust

Enjoy this guest post by Marcella Bremer

Have you ever worked in a positive culture? If you frown, then you haven’t! A positive culture gives people wings and swings results into a positive spiral. It “broadens and builds” people and organizations as Barbara Fredrickson researched. When people feel positive, they become more open and resourceful and achieve better results which reinforces the positivity. A positive culture contributes to the bottom line as positive organizations are engaged, innovative, competitive, agile, collaborative, and productive.

Isn’t that too good to be true? Well, no! Scientifically validated research shows that positive leadership (of yourself, and others) is the key to a positive culture and quantifiable positive outcomes.

This is important because many people don’t believe that a positive culture is possible. Maybe you started your work life optimistically, then you turned realistic and, finally, you may feel pessimistic or cynical because your workplace is…
