The Art of Scrolling – Steel

Hi Folks,

The title probably has you wondering.

The picture looks like an art piece.

So you may be wondering….You want to talk about how to better scroll through daily messages or something.

Not really.

Here, scrolling refers to bending steel.

Yes, you heard that right….steel.

Now, just picture, you want to impress a friend.

How’s stronger wrists, fingers, without looking bulky.

Wouldn’t it be nice to open that stubborn container in a jiffy.

Think how impressed your friends will be, when after dinner, you tell about a new hobby that was easy to learn.

Then you proceed to create a piece of art, as you bend, scroll, the steel, in your hands. Making it look easy, and it really Is !

Even better, is when your friends, come up to you afterward, asking how they can learn how to to that.

Well, two down to earth guys, who have tons of experience showing others how to do this just came out with an easy to watch DVD on Scrolling.

That’s right, you don’t have to go travel to some special workshop, or even leave the comfort of your home.

Picture, the next time your friends see you, they are amazed to see you make the art in the picture above. All the while you have a smile on your face as you show them.

Thanks to Jedd Johnson and Bud Jeffries. Two of the most easy going guys you could ever chat with, have just completed an at home DVD to help you learn this amazing art.

Enjoy learning this now through DVD in the comfort of your home now.

You too can bend and twist steel bars into amazing pieces of art, once you learn the Ultimate Form of Steel Bending – STEEL SCROLLING. 

What is Steel Scrolling?

Steel Scrolling is the art, science and physical performance of bending steel into purposefully made, artistic shapes, usually with a crowd watching in amazement.


Alexander Zass

Steel Scrolling is what they did in the times of the oldtime strongmen, back before everything got all watered down and packaged into a 7-minute abs commercial.

Back then, Scrolling showed you ARE  the real deal and made you immortal if you mastered it.

It’s the perfect blend of heavy metal ferocity with graceful ballet artistry.

It combines the strength of a weight lifter with the endurance of a distance runner and the cunning of an engineer.

An outlaw variety of strength that stands alone as the king of steel bending.

And you can learn this lost art of the oldtime strongmen with our video, “The Art of Scrolling Steel.”

For the Woman in your Life

Enjoy the Moment - Together !

Enjoy the Moment – Together !

Hi folks,

Having recently noticed have a lot of posts, but none for the Lady in our lives.

Here’s some insight into us Guys, done with Love,  in the hopes to better understand us oftentimes complex, men of few words, type of guys.

Women – This is for you !

Men Say ‘I Love You’ With Actions

Some men prefer to show their feelings through actions rather than words. Your guy may say “I love you” by fixing things around the house, tidying up the yard, or even taking out the trash — anything that makes your world a better place.

Men Really Do Take Commitment Seriously

Men have a reputation for being afraid to commit. But the evidence suggests men take marriage seriously. They may take longer to commit because they want to make sure they are on-board for good. In a survey of currently married men, 90% say they would marry the same woman again.

He Really Is Listening

When you’re listening to someone talk, you probably chime in with a “yes” or “I see” every now and then. It’s your way of saying, “I’m listening.” But some guys don’t do this. Just because a man isn’t saying anything doesn’t mean he’s not listening. He may prefer to listen quietly and think about what you’re saying.

Shared Activities Form Bonds

Men strengthen their relationships with their partners through doing things together, more than by sharing thoughts or feelings. For many men, activities like sports and sex make them feel closer to their partner. So, find an activity you enjoy doing together. For example, creative French or Italian cooking, hiking, mini-vacation for some quiet or active time together, etc. The best part, Be Creative in choosing what you’ll enjoy doing together makes it all the more fun !

Enjoy sharing activities together

Men Need Time for Themselves

While shared activities are important, men also need time for themselves. Whether your guy enjoys golf, gardening, or working out at the gym, encourage him to pursue his hobbies, while you make time for your own. When both partners have space to nurture their individuality, they have more to give to each other.

Men Learn From Their Fathers

If you want to know how a man will act in a relationship, get to know his dad. How they are with each other and how the father relates to the mother can predict how a man will relate to his wife. As the saying goes … Like father – Like son ~

Men Let Go Faster Than Women

Women tend to remember negative experiences longer and may have lingering feelings of stress, anxiety, or sadness. In contrast, men are less likely to dwell on unpleasant events and tend to move on more quickly. So while you may still want to talk about last night’s argument, your guy may have already forgotten about it. This is where being understanding and seeing each other’s point of view can help.

Men Don’t Pick Up on Subtle Cues

Men are more likely to miss subtle signals like tone of voice or facial expressions. And they are especially likely to miss sadness on a woman’s face. If you want to make sure your guy gets the message, be direct.

Men Respond to Appreciation

Showing appreciation for your guy can make a big difference in the way he acts. Take parenting: Studies show that fathers are more involved in care-giving when their wives value their involvement and see them as competent.

Most Men Think About Sex … A Lot

OK, so maybe this one is no secret. Most men under age 60 think about sex at least once a day, compared with only a quarter of women. And that’s not all. Men fantasize about sex nearly twice as often as women do, and their fantasies are much more varied. Here is where having a romantic weekend at a B & B can help. Create your fantasy love spot, then enjoy it together !

Men Find Sex Significant

It’s a myth that most men think sex is just sex. For many, sex is a very important act between two committed people. And just like most women, men find sexual intimacy to be most satisfying within a committed relationship. One reason is that long-term partners know how to please one another better than strangers do. Enjoy a quiet time together, romantic evening, make a date, then lavish each other while finding ways to please each other.

He Likes It When You Initiate Sex

Most guys feel as though they’re the ones who always initiate sex. But they also like to be pursued and wish their partner would take the lead more often. Don’t be shy about letting your guy know you’re in the mood. Initiating sex some of the time may lead to a higher level of satisfaction for both of you. Here’s the woman’s opportunity to enjoy being romantically creative.

Guys Aren’t Always Up for Sex

Men, much to many women’s surprise, aren’t always in the mood for sex. Just like women, men are often stressed by the demands of work, family, and paying the bills. And stress is a big libido crusher. When a guy says, “not tonight,” it doesn’t mean he’s lost interest in you. He just means he doesn’t want to have sex right then. This is a BIG one. And, when this occurs, just enjoy snuggling, watching a movie together, some hot chocolate. Enjoy each other in ways outside of sex, is a good foundation, to building a long loving relationship, based not just on sex, but on mutual understanding, as well as building loving memories together too.

Be creative  in expressing your love each day ~

Men Like Pleasing Their Partner

Your pleasure is important to your man. But he won’t know what you want unless you tell him. Too many women feel uncomfortable talking about what they like and don’t like. If you can tell him clearly in a way that doesn’t bruise his ego, he’ll listen. Because he knows he’ll feel good if you feel good. Encourage giving a massage, while telling where to massage more, gentler, slower, you get the idea.

Guys Get Performance Anxiety

Most men get performance anxiety on occasion, especially as they age. Your guy may worry about his body, technique, and stamina. If you can help him learn to relax and stay focused on the pleasures of the moment, sex will become less stressful. This can actually help both ways. As you both let go of feeling have to have sex, and more on loving touches, enjoying the moment without expectations, can go a long way to building a more relaxed loving atmosphere for you both.

Men. like Women, need to feel loved

If a man doesn’t feel loved and appreciated in his relationship, he may turn to burying himself in work. Another may develop a fixation on sports or video games. To avoid this, take time DAILY to express love and appreciation for each other. Even through little ways, can make a Huge positive difference !

He’s Vested in You

Most men realize there’s a lot to lose if a long-term relationship goes sour — not just each other’s company, but the entire life you’ve built together. If you’re willing to work to strengthen your marriage, chances are your man will be, too. Each day, do something that builds on the love of your marriage. For example, do something unexpected for each other. Be creative – It’s more fun !!

Hope to hear from men and women readers on your thoughts and feedback too.

Here’s to enjoying a Boundryless Loving Marriage together !!

Want a MORE productive Day – Do These ~

Be more Productive - Anyone can Do It !

Be more Productive – Anyone can Do It !

Hi Folks,

Since we’re already into February, hope you’re well on your way to a Productive day as well as year.

If not quite there yet…..

Here’s some tips to help get you there….

On average you’ll wake up for about 25,000 mornings during your adult life.

According to a WHO (World Health Organization) report the average life expectancy in the United States is 79 years old. Most people in wealthy nations are hovering around the 80–year mark. Women in Japan are the highest, with an average life expectancy of 86 years.

If we use these average life expectancy numbers and assume that your adult life starts at 18 years old, then you’ve got about 68 years as an adult. (86 – 18 = 68) Perhaps a little less on average. A little more if you’re lucky.

(68 years as an adult) x (365 days each year) = 24,820 days.

Once I realized this, I started thinking about how I could develop a better morning routine. I still have a lot to learn, but here are some strategies that you can use to get the most out of your 25,000 mornings.

Well, enough stats …know by now you’re ready for those tips…..Here you go –

1. Manage your energy, not your time.
If you take a moment to think about it, you’ll probably realize that you are better at doing certain tasks at certain times. For example, my creative energy is highest in the morning, so that’s when I do my writing each day.

By comparison, I block out my afternoons for interviews, phone calls, and emails. I don’t need my creative energy to be high for those tasks, so that’s the best time for me to get them done. And I tend to have my best workouts in the late afternoon or early evening, so that’s when I head to the gym.

What type of energy do you have in the morning? What task is that energy best suited for?

2. Prepare the night before…remember…. where Preparation meets Opportunity = Success !
I don’t do this nearly as often as I should, but if you only do one thing each day then spend a few minutes each night organizing your to–do list for tomorrow. When I do it right, I’ll outline the article I’m going to write the next day and develop a short list of the most important items for me to accomplish. It takes 10 minutes that night and saves 3 hours the next day.

Don't just sit there - Get Going on your Daily Goals -

Don’t just sit there – Get Going on your Daily Goals –

3. Don’t open email until noon.
Sounds simple. Nobody does it. It took me awhile to get over the urge to open my inbox, but eventually I realized that everything can wait a few hours. Nobody is going to email you about a true emergency (a death in the family, etc.), so leave your email alone for the first few hours of each day. Use the morning to do what’s important rather than responding to what is “urgent.”

4. Turn your phone off and leave it in another room.
Or on your colleagues desk. Or at the very least, put it somewhere that is out of sight. This eliminates the urge to check text messages, Facebook, Twitter, and so on. This simple strategy eliminates the likelihood of half – assing work where you waste time dividing your attention among meaningless tasks.

5. Work in a cool place. 
Have you ever noticed how you feel groggy and sluggish in a hot room? Turning the temperature down or moving to a cooler place is an easy way to focus your mind and body.

6. Sit up or stand up…in other words – MOVE !
Your mind needs oxygen to work properly. Your lungs need to be able to expand and contract to fill your body with oxygen. That sounds simple enough, but here’s the problem: most people sit hunched over while staring at a screen and typing.

When you sit hunched over, your chest is in a collapsed position and your diaphragm is pressing against the bottom of your lungs, which hinders your ability to breathe easily and deeply. Sit up straight or stand up and you’ll find that you can breathe easier and more fully. As a result, your brain will get more oxygen and you’ll be able to concentrate better.

Tip-bit: You can place a pillow in the small of my back.  preventing the lower back from rounding, which keeps you  more naturally upright.)

7. Eat as a reward for working hard. 
I’m now practicing intermittent fasting, which means that I eat my first meal around noon each day. I’ve been doing this for a few months now. There are plenty of health benefits, but find what works best for YOU. Of course I’m not bound by this as a hard and fast rule. Use rules … but don’t let them Rule You !

But health is just one piece of the puzzle. I also fast because it allows me to get more out of my day. Take a moment to think about how much time people spend each day thinking, planning, and consuming food. By adopting intermittent fasting, I don’t waste an hour each morning figuring out what to eat for breakfast, cooking it, and cleaning up. Instead, I use my morning to work on things that are important to me. Then, I eat good food and big meals as a reward for working hard.

8. Develop a “pre–game routine” to start your day.
My morning routine starts by pouring a cold glass of water. Some people kick off their day with ten minutes of meditation. Similarly, you should have a sequence that starts your morning ritual. This tiny routine signals to your brain that it’s time to get into work mode or exercise mode or whatever mode you need to be in to accomplish your task. Additionally, a pre–game routine helps you overcome a lack of motivation and get things done even when you don’t feel like it.

The Power of a Morning Routine

Just as it’s rare for anyone to experience overnight success, it’s also rare for our lives crumble to pieces in an instant. Most unproductive or unhealthy behaviors are the result of slow, gradual choices that add up to bad habits. A wasted morning here. An unproductive morning there.

The good news is that exceptional results are also the result of consistent daily choices. Nowhere is this more true than with your morning routine. The way you start your day is often the way that you finish it.

Energize Your Mornings

Energize Your Mornings

Take, for example, Jack LaLanne. He woke up each day at 4am and spent the first 90 minutes lifting weights. Then, he went for a swim or a run for the next 30 minutes. For more than 60 years, he spent each morning doing this routine. In addition to being one of the most influential people in fitness in the last 100 years, LaLanne also lived to the ripe old age of 96.

This is no coincidence. What you do each morning is an indicator of how you approach your entire day. It’s the choices that we repeatedly make that determine the life we live, the health we enjoy, and the work we create.

You’ve got 25,000 mornings… What will you do with each one?

2014 Success Tips – Part 2

How Bad to You Want your Dream ? !

How Bad do You Want your Dream ? !

Hey there Folks,

Here is the second part of Success tips for attaining your 2014 goals.

Remember, you don’t have to jump in and try doing all these tips in one day.

You could start by adding one tip a day, or even a week. Then before you know it….

You’ll have built up a Momentum of Success that helps carry you toward your goals.

Well, without further ado, here’s some more tips for ya …..

Keeping a journal is like the phrase “Preparation Meets Opportunity”, with a journal, ; one for your planning, scheduling, and working ideas. The other for your big ideas, thoughts, and Personal goals.

Things become more REAL when you take the time to write them down.

You’re taking the time to Think it, Write it, AND Read it.  3 important steps of ANY plan. Get in the habit of writing everything down.

Have a To-Do List? Write it down!

Have a Goal? Write it down!

Have a Dream? Write it down!

 

Measure stuff.

If it’s important enough for you to be spending your time on, then it needs to be measured. SO….. Get in the habit of measuring your actions and results, you’ll develop a playbook for what works and what doesn’t.

Do it in 90 … of course you know I mean your work … Right !

Schedule tasks into blocks of time. Respect the time you sit in front of the computer.

It’s amazing how quickly time can zip by if you’re not disciplined in this respect. There are thousands of distractions online (Facebook, YouTube, Email, etc).

Keep a stopwatch nearby. Focus on a 90 minute blocks of work. Once your 90 minutes are up, take an “active” break (exercise to get your blood pumping).

Not only will you get a lot more done, but you will find your work much more fulfilling and rewarding.

 

Equally Important … Take active breaks.

In between those 90 minutes of Doing It time …. take “active” breaks in between your 90 minute blocks of work.

This doesn’t need to be anything extreme, maybe just some light stretching and walking to get your blood pumping.

If still in between work, make sure the activity you do doesn’t take you away from getting back and finishing the job at hand.

 

Wake up early.

This reminds me of the phrase; “The early bird catches the worm”.  It can be tough for many people, but if you study extremely successful people, you’ll quickly discover that the great majority have the habit of waking up early in the morning before the rest of the world.

 

This is ALWAYS important and helps keep us and the world in perspective…..Put your family first.

Here’s a big one to lay on you …

Always put family first, even if the only family you’ve got is close friends.

When you focus on serving and doing things for others, outside your own personal gain, you’ll quickly discover you feel a lot more fulfilled and accomplished.

Finding you purpose often has to do with this habit.

 

Work harder than your competition.

Success is inevitable if you constantly outwork your competition. Make this your mantra and you’ll find yourself reaching your goals at record speed!

If it doesn't challenge you ... It won't change you !

If it doesn’t challenge you … It won’t change you !

 

Use a big white board.

This habit is probably my favorite out of the whole list!

In fact, I’ve got not one but TWO white boards. One is a calendar white board to write daily goals on, while the other is your standard white board to write or draw….YES I said draw…..since our brains work amazingly well with pictures (Google It on “Mind Mapping”)

Use a giant white board to keep your goals close and visible to you while working.

When you goals become crystal clear in your mind, it becomes so much easier to attain them.

 

Share your dream…don’t just visualize…. VERBALIZE !!

Get in the habit of speaking your dreams and goals out loud.

Speaking your dreams gives them life!

This habit becomes even more powerful when the sharing takes place among like minded people.

Surround yourself with people who Inspire and Motivate you.

Surround yourself with people who will build you up. If people around you are constantly tearing you down, then separate yourself from that environment as quickly as possible.

Remember, you will become the average of the five people you hang out with the most.

 

Remember…. Keep a healthy body.

Another Big One…. yet so often forgotten!

Believe it or not, a healthy body is tied to your wallet.

It becomes really hard to maintain a healthy mind when your body, your mind’s home, isn’t working properly !

 

Spend your money only on things that will fuel your dream.

Best, especially at first,  to avoid spending your money on “things” such as cars, clothes, vacations, etc.

Instead, invest your money into personal development along with those things that will fuel your business growth!

 

Every Successful person has done this one … Make a sacrifice !

Attaining success is all about delayed gratification!

Get in the habit of sacrificing “things” in order to acquire the life you so desire!

The road to success isn’t one of luxury and excess! Instead, it’s all about learning about self-control, sacrifice, hard work and discipline!

 

Remember to do this each month…. Review your journals .. they are one of your Best Friends !

Get in the habit of writing in a journal …. then … reviewing what you’ve written. This helps you materialize your thoughts.

 

Always finish your day with what I like to call…. Attitude of Gratitude. Again, using your journal, write down five things you’re thankful for today. 

Develop a habit of being grateful. It’s proven that people who are happy and grateful achieve far more than negative and pessimistic people!

Count your blessings. The mind is a powerful thing. When focused on the right things (your blessings), it has a way of multiplying what it focuses on.

Most of all, each day, remember to FEEL the Rain ~
