Fear of Vocational Failure

There is a fear of failure at one’s chosen career or vocation.  Also, there is a fear of failure in business or in performance of one’s duty.  The common notion that success is good and failure bad is a myth.  Walt Disney went bankrupt in business several times before “Mickey Mouse Land” was founded.  A large percentage of the leaders of the Fortune 500 companies have attributed their “current success” in life to difficulties, hardships, and past failures.  The successes and failures of our vocational lives are here to teach us and prepare us for the next level of life.  Fear can limit you or it can guide you.  Fear can paralyze you or energize you. The master turns his fear into fuel to propel himself forward.  Winston Churchill said, “Most of the things I feared in life never came to pass.”

Enthusiasm is the grease that helps to turn the wheels of accomplishment. Enthusiasm is what happens to the body when the mind is inspired. It is the body’s motor response to, and the by-product of being inspired and on a mission. Enthusiasm is that certain something that makes us great, that pulls us out of the mediocre and commonplace, that builds power into us. It glows and shines; it lights up our faces. Enthusiasm is the keynote that makes us sing and makes men sing with us. Enthusiasm is the maker of friends, the maker of smiles, the producer of confidence. It cries to the world, “I’ve got what it takes.” It tells all people that our job is a great job, that the company we work for just suits us, that the goods we have are the best. Enthusiasm makes us “wake up and live.” It puts spring in our step, joy in our hearts, a twinkle in our eyes, and it gives us confidence in ourselves and our fellow humans.

Enthusiasm changes a deadpan salesman into a producer, a pessimist to an optimist, a loafer to a go-getter. If we have enthusiasm, we should thank God for it. If we don’t have it, then we should get down on our knees and pray for it.


He who has the most certainty rules! Certainty is not just confidence, bravado, or bluffing, poker-faced I’ve-got-the-cookie smile. Certainty is knowing that you know-that you know. The deeper knowledge that comes with wisdom and experience is the source of certainty. One method of achieving certainty in our lives is by following the path set forth in this book. The balanced emotions, resolve, and focused goals of a “man on his mission” create a certainty that vitalizes us like no pseudo-emotions can. The expression, “who you are shouts so loudly, I can hardly hear what you are saying,” speaks true of the person who has a certainty birthed from an inner vision and knowledge. When the heart is open, the mind is clear and present, and the message is delivered with divine certainty. True certainty is the result of balanced emotions, inner vision, organized thinking, and a plan of action.


Presence, or present-time consciousness, is the moment when our mind is not occupied by thoughts, ideas, guilt, or blame concerning the past, or thoughts, ideas, and fears concerning the future.  Being present to life is an important skill to develop.  This includes paying attention to our children when they speak to us and being in the moment behind the wheel of a car.  Most of life is being missed by not being in present-time consciousness.  What fills our mind if not the moment of life before us?  Thoughts of the future and the past make up the myriad of mental images we experience with every suggestion or question.  Some say future fear and past guilt.  Presence is called the love state, the balanced state, the equilibriated state, when your emotions are not running your life.  When you are elated, seeing many more positives than negatives, time seemingly speeds up and flies.  When you are depressed, seeing many more negatives than positives, time slows down and drags.  Actually, the same amount of time passes in either situation.  Emotions warp time and space.  Emotions gravitate and weigh us down.  Present-time consciousness is timeless and spaceless and enlightens us.  Most people pursue the positive and try to avoid the negative.  Both are futile and take us out of the present.  When you see that every perceived negative in your life brings with it an equal and opposite positive, and every positive brings and equal and opposite negative, you enter an equilibriated, or present-time, consciousness state.  In this state you see both sides of reality and appreciate your life and the events in it as part of the perfection.  A master is one who has the ability to achieve this present-time consciousness state consistently.  Developing our mission and setting goals while in present-time consciousness elevates us to a higher frequency vibration and energy state.  This increases the potential for finding our true purpose and attracting to us the things we seek.

What Chiropractic Patients Should Know About Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

If you find yourself becoming depressed, increasingly irritable and suffering from more bouts of insomnia as winter approaches, you may have seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Your risk of having this condition increases the further you get from the equator.

The prevalence of SAD is estimated to be only 1.4 percent in Florida, but jumps to 9.7 percent in New Hampshire. Although it is not listed as a mental disorder in itself, it is categorized as a specific type of depression.

Dr. Norman Rosenthal was the first researcher to study and name this phenomenon, motivated by his desire to understand what caused his depression in the long dark days of the northern winters. Rosenthal and colleagues conducted a placebo-controlled study of SAD that used light therapy, which was found to be effective in alleviating some of the symptoms of SAD.

Although the exact cause of SAD is not fully understood, scientists believe that the hypothalamus is negatively affected by the relative lack of sunlight in more northern latitudes (or more southern latitudes for people in the southern hemisphere). The hypothalamus regulates our circadian rhythm and produces the hormones that influence sleep, mood and appetite.

Some of the most common warning signs of seasonal affective disorder include can be found here

The human brain and how it acquires language is a constant source of scientific interest.  Words, laughter, and music stimulate the brain and linguistics researchers are uncovering their role in communication through the vibratory frequencies of the human nervous system.  The Seven Sacred Words, or words of power, have inherent in them a vibrancy frequency, almost a life of their own.  Understood and practiced with intent, they represent powers that enliven the heart, mind, and soul.  They are the keys to the awareness of the magnificence and magic of this world.  I challenge you to imagine being consistently successful in any area of life without them.

Chiropractic Care for Back Pain

Among people seeking back pain relief alternatives, most choose chiropractic treatment. About 22 million Americans visit chiropractors annually. Of these, 7.7 million, or 35%, are seeking relief from back pain from various causes, including accidents, sports injuries, and muscle strains. Other complaints include pain in the neck, arms, and legs, and headaches.

What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments, the theory being that proper alignment of the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. Manipulation is used to restore mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event, such as falling, or repetitive stress, such as sitting without proper back support.

Chiropractic is primarily used as a pain relief alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. It is sometimes used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.

The initials “DC” identify a chiropractor, whose education typically includes an undergraduate degree plus four years of chiropractic college.

Chiropractic treatment helps to improve your body’s physical function by promoting self-healing.  No preparation is required before a chiropractic adjustment.  Some patients may require a series of visits to your chiropractor.
