I field a lot of emails in a day. And some of those emails are goldmines, because they reveal the wrong ideas that people entertain, the wrong premises on which they build their actions.
In this article I will go deep, root level, and I will also go higher... because wrong premises can infect you on all levels.
Here is the latest:
Q: Can I listen to the Energizer Audio through headsets for 10 minutes a day to raise my cell hydration?

End Of Times, The Earthquake, The Tsunami, The Nuclear Threat, Hydrogen Peroxide, desire to receive for the self alone, A Spiritual Interpretation
Why did the earthquake in Japan happen, what about the tsunami and the threat of radiation from the nuclear plant, desire to receive for the self alone? A spiritual interpretation
There are two major attitudes that "humanity" uses to look at an event. Both are desire to receive for the self alone.
1. personal. the question is asked? why me? how did I deserve this? or "father, why did you forsake me?"
2. global i.e. not personal. The tone is blame and "there is nothing I can do about it" "I am not at fault" and the like.
Both attitudes are faulty and driven by ego and a profound misunderstanding of how it all works.

I have a better "hammer" for you: it has worked for my multi-millionaire mentor, it will work for you.
What to do when all you know fails you? When the hammers don't work, and you can't seem to attain your goals?
I was on a radio show today. I was the "minor" guest, and as such, I did not prepare: I wanted to stay present to the conversation the "major" guest had with the radio host, so I can add my 2 cents worth, instead of taking the show to a different place.

How To Beat Depression Without Medication
Eppic Smith You Can Beat Depression... if you recognize it as depression
I found this article when I searched for the phrase "beat depression."

beat depression that is low-grade without medication.
The writer of this article uses valid arguments for self-management, but misses a lot of factors, like what did he do, exactly, that allowed him to beat depression to begin with.
He says he took responsibility for his feeling down and out, ad he kicked the medications... so far so good.
But what he isn't saying is that depression is a sign of something.
What is it a sign of? In my experience, as a once depressed person (for 40 years!) I have noticed a few common characteristics with my coaching clients.
I lacked desire.
I was not happy with myself
I could not see myself clearly doing what I thought I wanted to do... the picture was there like fuzzy patches, but not like a movie.
So, how do you get out of these three interconnected and synergistic (negatively) states of mind?
I think that the easiest is to start with number 2.
Why? Because it is easier go get happy(er) with yourself, especially because you need energy for the other two, and having a good feeling about yourself will give you energy.
You can also start really small, like doing something that you consider hard to do, but still doable, like
