Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you have heard about mindfulness and meditation or seen some celebrity talking about it on TV.People like Tim Ferriss, Oprah Winfrey, Hugh Jackman, Cameron Diaz, Katy Perry, Ellen Degeneres and even some of the largest hedge fund managers in the world are saying that meditation is something they do each and every day.
So what’s all the fuss about?
Could sitting still and thinking about nothing really make such a big difference?
All of this starts with one tough mother…….. Mark Divine.
He’s one of those guys you can see is hardcore to the bone:
- Ranked the #1 trainee of SEAL BUDS/class number 170
- Served 9 years on active duty,
- 11 years as a Reserve Seal,
- Retiring as Commander in 2011,
- NYT Best seller, WSJ Best seller and #1 Amazon for books
This is a guy you can probably learn a few things from……
What makes Mark really impressive is the fact that he isn’t just a Navy Seal that pushes through the pain and does insane things physically. He also has a degree in economics, an MBA in Finance and he is a CPA (I think all of you know why I like him now). Read more

So where did this whole article on smiling start? Funny story……
I have this friend who is one of those people. You know the ones, they are super popular, easy to talk to and everyone wants to be around them. This guy just seems to cruise through life and have a ball doing it. So I decided to ask him what his secret was. We discussed a lot of different things, but one thing that really surprised me was that he believed smiling was his secret weapon.
This sounded too simple to be true, so I decided to do some research. There are lots of studies out there that actually prove something as simple as smiling, will have a massive impact on your life.
Seriously, who wants to be friends with stress?
Stress is the horrible bully that beats everybody up all day, but when you get to know him a little better, he isn’t really that bad. In my previous article on stress we covered how stress works and what you can do to neutralise its negative effects the moment you feel it.
Stress, the big bad bully that everyone knows so well.
We all complain about it and suffer from it everyday. Whether it is stress at work, stress in traffic or stress at home, we’ve all experienced it.
