Living Life On Purpose – Easier Than You Think

People often contact me to discover their purpose for this life. This profound question has been kicked around for eons, centuries with psychics, fortune tellers and in many conversations. However, your purpose isn’t the way the majority of people think. You may have asked yourself this question a million times or not. In those deep philosophical conversations, this question seems to pop up over and over again.

Everyone has a take on this contemplation or not. Some like to contemplate it like they may contemplate their navel, a mole, or a bunion. Like… what is this all about? Why do I have this? Is there a deeper meaning to my navel, my mole, or my whatever? Maybe there is no deeper meaning you might muse. Or maybe your body is drawing your attention out of your computer/brain to connect with your body? Could be!

Back to the question at hand… What is the purpose of life or, in fact, what is the purpose of my life? Maybe there is more than only one purpose. Maybe there is a plethora of purposes.

Purposes to contemplate or activate:

How do I participate in life?
Am I fully present in what I am doing?
Am I “out-of-body” co-existing in another dimension?
Am I in the correct profession for me? That’s right..correct, not right!
Do I like my life?
Do I like my relationships?
Do I know the difference between like and love or romance?
Do I really know what love means or Tina’s song..”What’s Love Got To Do With It?
Do I feel good about my Self?
Do I like my Self?
If I don’t, why don’t I like my Self?
Do I have many limitations going on in my computer/brain?
Do I know the real me?
Is the real me buried deep underneath the rubble of life?
Or, is the real me about to burst forth?
Is there more than one purpose in life?

The 16th question leaves room for expansion… and you can ask a million questions, as you discover more about who you are. Why would there be only one purpose to life? You are multi-dimensional, so why not embrace having more than one purpose? How about having a plethora of purposes? Here are some ideas:

Purposes of life:

Being a great friend to Self.
Being a great friend to friends.
Living my life consciously,
Living my best life!
Living fully engage in each moment
Getting involved in every aspect of my life.
Avoid giving my power away.
Laugh at my Self.
Avoid taking other people or my self seriously… if you do, go live on Sirius.
Allow your Self to experience each moment.
Live each day as if it were the first day of your life.
Be impressed by the people you have brought into your life to learn about your Self.
Be impressed with your Self.
If you are creating lots of trauma and drama, write a new script and get off this traumatic reality show.
Live your reality from your Heart.
Choose role models who are real role models vs following indoctrination and conditioning.
Get “it’… you have many purposes.

In the final analysis, your purpose for an in-body experience is for mental, emotional and spiritual growth. While this may not sound profound it is the most profound purpose for your eternal life. How you create your mental, emotional and spiritual growth is where you can put your unique footprint.

Now be creative, be clever, write down all the ways you can fulfill your purposes. Begin to create your life with these purposes in your heart each and every day. When someone asks you… “What is your purpose?” Ask them… “Which one do you want me to talk about? Go out and be on purpose, with your purpose to create your mental, emotional and spiritual growth!

How to Write and Benefit From Free Online Articles

You want more website traffic. You want more blog visitors and views. You want more opportunities to speak and present at conferences and industry trade shows. You want more credibility and desire more exposure.

What you need to do is write more articles for a broader audience. You need to allow your content to help you expand your potential opportunities. You can simply start by writing beyond your niche or speciality, creating articles that speak to a broader audience.

Develop Articles Beyond Your Niche

Having a speciality is well and good, but your audience is narrowed by your niche. Everyone is not interested in the history of weaving across the centuries. However, you can turn that idea into something appealing by putting more focus on what types of woven items sell best on Etsy or a how-to article on taking woven art and crafts to market both online and otherwise. The broadened topic allows you to expand your audience and increase your exposure.

To go beyond your niche, you have to get out of your own comfort zone and dig a little deeper to produce articles that have a broad appeal. Consider the how-to article. In order to develop a how-to article, you have to work step by step with the end product in mind by providing a procedural concept along the way. It may require more explanation because you want to appeal to the novice as much as you want to appeal to the experienced person. With how-to articles, you can rely on your experience, hobbies, research and education to serve as your resources. The goal is to broaden your appeal thereby broadening your audience.

How to Structure Your Articles

Your articles must appeal to a broader audience and that starts with structure. Consider the layout of your article. From title to type, your article needs to have an aesthetic appeal that includes shorten paragraphs, simple sentence structure and section headings with bullet point lists. By making your structure more appealing, readers will go beyond the headline and title to skim the article before fully reading it.

Your articles should at least be:

Interesting

If you fail to capture the attention of the reader, then you have failed to attract the reader. From the very title of the article, you have to grab the reader’s attention and hold the reader’s interest by delivering on the topic promised via the title. Opening with an attention-grabbing first line or paragraph keeps readers glued to your article. However, you have to deliver with interesting content throughout the article.

Informative

Your articles need to provide readers with information that they did not have prior to seeing your title or reading your article. It can be either entirely new information or a totally different spin on a well-known topic. No matter how you approach your topic, you need to craft an article that remains informative on a variety of levels from novice to experienced. Allow for insights and innovative perspectives to draw readers further into your article. Include stats and facts that support your article’s direction.

Inspiring

People read articles for more than just interest and information. People desire to be inspired. Allow readers to find inspiration through your articles. Stir up their interests to the point where they want more and desire to put some of your pointers into practice. Make readers feel like they can implement new ideas on their own or do something different by utilizing a step-by-step method that you have written about in your articles. You want to leave your readers feeling inspired to the point where they want to try out on their own.

Benefits of Free Online Articles

Writing free articles have their own inherent benefits. Some of these benefits include additional writing opportunities and paid speaking engagements, even information product sales.

Some other benefits of free articles include:

Increased website traffic
More blog visitors and views
Heightened exposure to a broader audience of readers
Increased credibility on topics and industries

You can gain a lot from writing free articles. You just have to be certain to make a wide range appeal and develop content that speaks to a variety of audience levels.

Men, Unleash Your Potential With Boxing

Too many guys squander their time in the gym doing curls and other exercises to look pretty while never really challenging their bodies to be everything that they could be. Boxing is one of the best workouts that can help bring you to that next level.

GET RIPPED

Boxing may be one of the best ways to shed body fat and lean out while preserving muscle mass. Research has shown that interval style training like boxing is great for fat loss and for speeding up your metabolism. Exercise like traditional aerobic cardio workouts only create an increase in calories burned during the actual workout that drops off rapidly when you end your training session. But because of a phenomenon known as EPOC (Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption) you have a substantial increase in the amount of calories you burn for hours after you end a boxing workout. Since boxing uses your fast twitch muscle fibers to perform quick and powerful punches over and over again it encourages your body to hold onto muscle and even can increase your muscle size which will lead to a ripped broad shoulder look and not the skinny look that so many endurance athletes have. So, if you only have a limited amount of time to get a workout in, try attending a quality boxing gym near you which will give you better results for your time then a traditional cardio workout, such as going for a run.

SPEED, POWER, ENDURANCE

Few styles of training can give you the full spectrum of physical improvements that boxing can. ESPN ranked boxing the hardest sport in the world because of all the ingredients that go into preparation. The primary qualities needed to be a great boxer are speed, power & endurance. Here are just a few ways you gain those qualities through boxing training.

SPEED: Through hitting a bag or doing mitt work you are demanding your muscles to fire faster than you are accustomed to. Every time you punch, you must quickly twist your body, shoot out your arm, and bring it right back. You must move your feet quickly to get in, out and around a bag or an opponent. In a good boxing workout, a variety of plyometric exercises and other drills that demand your body to move as fast as possible are also mixed in which forces you to new levels of speed production you may have not thought possible.

POWER: Boxing teaches you to use your entire body to produce maximum power in a punch while delivering it accurately, quickly and on balance. The lock and squeeze at the end of a punch is a massive contraction of the muscle fibers in your arms and shoulders that happen in the very instant you first makes contact with your target. That contact puts a tremendous load on your muscles all the way from your chest muscles to the muscles of your back which must bear the load of hundreds of pounds of force when you land a hard punch. When punches are delivered properly you will feel the work that was put on these muscle groups the next day. ENDURANCE: A lot of research has been done over the past couple decades about the benefits of high intensity interval training on VO2 max ( a measurement of your body’s ability to utilize oxygen). Interval training like boxing has been shown to increase VO2 max faster and in shorter workouts than steady state cardio. Boxing is great cross training for individuals that play a variety of sports seriously or for recreation as it helps tremendously with boosting endurance. At the end of the day, boxing is a much more exciting and time efficient way to get your cardio in than running on a treadmill or spending time on a stationary bike.

FUN & EXCITING

We all know exercise can be fun, but boxing for exercise can be even more fun! Whenever you exercise, you get a release of endorphins that make you feel accomplished and satisfied after a hard workout. With boxing, you get the same feelings, but more. After a hard boxing workout you have the feeling of accomplishment as well as progress when you learn new techniques. The excitement of throwing punches, moving around, bobbing, weaving and blocking punches is a huge thrill that is extremely addictive and will leave you wanting more after every workout!

STRESS RELIEVING

Have you ever gone through a super stressful day and just wished you could have punch something? Energy like that, if held in for a long time, can be detrimental to your interactions with people around you and the people closest to you, leaving you easily frustrated and ready to fly off the handle. People that have made Boxing a part of their daily routine get to let out that frustration all the time! If you spend 30 min to an hour of throwing hundreds of punches as hard and as fast as you can, you better believe you will feel a huge sense of relief. When you train boxing, you are using that energy of aggression and transferring it into a positive outlet that will not only make you feel great, but look great as well!

THE FINAL BELL

I strongly encourage you to try a boxing workout either in a class or personal session. To get the most out of your workouts you need to go to a quality boxing gym and experience what boxing is really all about!

5 Things to Consider When Buying Badminton Shoes

A better than average combine of badminton shoes is fundamental for amplifying on-court execution, as well as to anticipate damage. The legs and feet are sure to encounter a ton of stress when playing badminton, so it is critical to deliberately think about the diverse highlights and choices. We should investigate a couple of things that are fundamental in badminton shoes:

Soles

Most badminton shoes have gum elastic or elastic soles. For the players utilizing a PU or wood court, the favored alternative is the gum elastic soles. They give an abnormal state of hold on the court. On the other hand, the standard elastic soles are sufficient for the concrete based floors.

Additionally, there are shoes that have non-checking soles to abstain from leaving a considerable measure of imprints on the floor from the quick developments from the back to the front of the court.

Ventilation

Legitimate ventilation is sure to be acknowledged in shoes worn while occupied with a quick paced game. A development of perspiration can prompt wet shoes which can without much of a stretch form into microscopic organisms and growths. Additionally, they will probably smell gravely after a brief timeframe. Ventilation in different places on the shoes will keep the feet cool and make the time on the court much more agreeable.

Padding

Badminton includes a considerable measure of moving around and hopping, so shoes with incredible padding are sure to profit. Great padding will guarantee the body is given the coveted effect security from the consistent development. A territory of the body that will see a considerable measure of pressure is the knees from the customary bounces or a lurch. Be that as it may, with the correct shoes, it is conceivable to depend on the padding to acknowledge a portion of the heap, and not by any means on the knees.

Weight

The light shoes for badminton are the most attractive alternative. With a need to always move around the court, the substantial shoes will just back the player off after a brief period. A regular weight is in the locale of 250-350 grams. At this weight it will be less demanding to quickly move over the court to strike the shuttlecock.

Lower leg Support

When all is said in done, the badminton shoes are worked with negligible lower leg bolster contrasted with running shoes or mentors. Lower leg bolster is helpful for running shoes in light of the fact that the feet and legs should be kept in a straight line. Be that as it may, with badminton there is a steady need to move sideways, in reverse and forward. The favored decision with badminton shoes is to give the lower legs a chance to flex normally, and they will create adaptability and quality all alone.

The Fear of Falling: In Life and On The Wall

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be suspended above ground? Probably not. But if you get to, it’s the most liberating and freeing experience you’ll ever have. Rock climbing is the ultimate sport for humans that involves defying gravity and physics in all its splendor. From athletes to normal folk that just enjoy the sport, it’s one of the most physically demanding and technical sports on the face of the planet. I’m not here to sell you on the lifestyle, or even convince you that climbing will be for you. But what I will share is my personal experience of how overcoming your fear of falling, relates not only to climbing but also in our daily lives.

I started climbing last year in October 2016 and has it been a whirlwind of ups and downs, with the realization of where my weakness and also where my strengths lie as a climber. I am by no means a professional. There several different styles of climbing out there, but I’ll be focusing more on sports climbing and bouldering. Sport climbing is the practice of climbing where there are pre-drilled anchors on the wall that allow the climber to ascend the wall by a route set. This allows them to clip their gear on the wall for safety. With bouldering, climbers are on walls that are no more than 20 feet tall with crash pads down below for protection. I haven’t found any other method to learn efficiently without repetition and maintaining muscle memory. Forget the training at first, and just learn to climb. When you learn to trust your body, climbing becomes a part of you and becomes less of a fight to reach the top.

I know I mentioned the physical demands of rock climbing, but haven’t dived into what it’s like for your mind. As for someone who has an overwhelming fear of heights and recurring anxiety, consider it the mental Olympics. My first-day climbing involved barely making up ten feet up a wall in the gym. It wasn’t the physical strength that deterred me from finishing, but more of what was going on in my head, move after move. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned so far in my climbing is continuing to be present on the wall. I had so much trouble with that first step that falling was just impossible to comprehend. What will happen? Will my harness break loose and fall to the ground? Is my partner watching me? Some of these thoughts may come to mind. And just like in our day-to-day, The “What if’s” just overtake the conscious ability to acknowledge that predicament we are in. We become so afraid of what we cannot control in our lives, that it hinders our growth and ability to see a different view of things. The physical act of falling remains uncontrollable but we can always be ready for.

Breathing is really important. I think we take it for granted daily. In a stressful situation, we all have the tendency to tense up and lose focus. It’s important to recognize their stress factors and take in where your climbing skills are. Breathing through your motions not only help prevent injury but can many times offer us to have a clearer mindset in our decision-making skills when things get a bit iffy or outside of our comfort zone. We all have our limitations and also are aware of what feels good, and also what doesn’t. Climbing requires that intuitive mindset. How can you overcome falling, if you don’t understand what it feels like? As practitioners in life, we have to give it our best and take risks in order to improve ourselves. When we learn to feel sensations instead of stepping back to our comforts, it allows the practice of awareness become alive.
