Getting the most out of your Coffee

enjoying coffee AFTER studying

Hi Folks,

Have found that when preparing for a busy day, it’s hard to beat a nice warm cup of java, coffee.

But, if you are like me, wondering, when is that BEST time to enjoy your coffee to get the most benefits.

Hope this helps …

In the past, researchers thought they had proved that coffee doesn’t improve memory. Turns out, coffee can improve your memory. But you have to drink it at the right time.

Experiments on coffee drinkers have traditionally focused on how well people perform on memory tasks after having a cup or two of coffee. And the scientists found zilch. But researchers at Johns Hopkins University have discovered that if you drink coffee (or some other caffeinated beverage) after a memory task, not necessarily before, it does, in fact, strengthen memory.

“We’ve always known that caffeine has cognitive-enhancing effects, but its particular effects on strengthening memories and making them resistant to forgetting has never been examined in detail in humans,” says researcher Michael Yassa.

The new wrinkle in Yassa’s research is the fact that his team of scientists administered 200 milligrams of caffeine to people five minutes after they studied and began to memorize a series of images. (That’s the amount of caffeine found in about two cups of coffee.)

“Almost all prior studies administered caffeine before the study session, so if there is an enhancement, it’s not clear if it’s due to caffeine’s effects on attention, vigilance, focus or other factors. By administering caffeine after the experiment, we rule out all of these effects and make sure that if there is an enhancement, it’s due to memory and nothing else,” said Yassa.

Here’s to a Healthy Productive Boundryless week while enjoying that coffee too !

Enter the Fifth Gate of Taming Your Mind for Power ~

Power of Positive !

Power of Positive !

Hi folks,

Want to say a big Thanks to those who have liked and supported the recent articles ~ You ARE Appreciated !!

Time to enter the Gateway of Personal Growth ~ Our Fifth Gateway takes us to an Amazing world……

When you hear tame…

What do you think of …..

How about Taming of the Mind?

How about this… Taming as focusing the Mind ~ Different image now?

As we clear our mind,

we can perceive reality simply …

As it Is ~

Folks, it is common to see the world through filters of our belief, opinions, as well as intrepretation.

Consider….

How do you beliefs Shape Your Experiences !!

The reflection of your mind..

Here’s a real world story on the Power of the Mind …. AND why to focus in a Postie on Your Goals !

A real man called Mr. Wright was suffering from lymphatic cancer. His lymph nodes were swollen to the size of oranges, while his spleen as well as his liver had become so enlarged that two quarts of milky fluid were daily drained from them. The doctors felt they had done everything medically possible (for the mid 1950s) for Mr. Wright. They told him to put things in order since he will most likely not survive much longer.

Shortly after this Mr. Wright heard of an experimental drug for cancer being used on patients who had around a three month life expectancy. Wright pleaded with his doctor to administer this drug to him, and finally the doctor agreed not making any promises to Wright.

According to the doctor’s report Wright wasn’t expected to live through the weekend.

However…..

Unbelievably, on the following Monday, less than 72 hours after receiving the drug, Wright was walking around feeling on top of the world in health. The tumors, according to the report had “melted like snowballs on a hot stove.” Ten days his first Krebiozen injection, Mr. Wright went home from the hospital, being determined by the doctors to be cancer free!!

Unfortunately, months later the American Medical Association published a nationwide study on  that flatly stated it was of no value in treating cancer. Mr. Wright read this study, believed it, and his cancer returned. Just two days later…. He died !

So what happened to him ~ he had been told by doctors he was cured of his cancer.

What went wrong?

Mr. Wright used the Power of his Focused (Tamed) mind to believe that the experimental drug WILL cure him and that’s why he survived thus far. Then, Wright attached his emotions (Energy in Motion) and intellect (Tame ~ Focused mind) on the belief the drug WILL cure him so his body obeyed.

Who knows if Wright had not read the study which negated his positive belief.

The point ~ Whatever you believe about yourself, intellectually as well as emotionally, WILL determine who and what you become physically ~ spiritually too !!

THIS is the reason you should guard your thoughts, words, actions and associations.  You should surround yourself with positive reinforcement in what you see, hear, say, and especially Think so when you … Follow through with Positive Action you’ll attain Positive Results !!

 

Folks, here’s to you following the Path through the Gateway of Focused Positive Action while living Boundrylessly !!

Successfully Using Your Knowledge

Successfully Using Your Knowledge

Hi Folks,

Hope  you enjoyed a wonderful New Year celebration and ready to enjoy new accomplishments this 2012.

Reclaim something very valuable you probably didn’t even know you may have lost …..

Your Will !!

Assert your Positive Will AND by Acting Upon what you Know.

This point is SO important please reread that last sentence again ~

By applying that sentence you can create an abundant Life while enjoying using your Knowledge AND Will to make those 2012 plans come true.

So to add to this….

We experience it a challenge in feeling at ease creating from our will….Dis-ease = disease ~

This is usually the result of wishing ~ hoping life “should be” a certain way then being surprised … even disappointed when reality shows that life just isn’t fair when judged by our personal standard.

In conclusion, if we chase after something impossible, without using our Knowledge AND Will, then we put our energy into a hopeless plan.

However, when we discover something of Great Power in our very possession .. Knowledge AND Will to CAUSE the outcome we so Desire, then the Effect will be…..

You hopefully have guessed….

Your Personal goals coming true !!

Please share your thoughts on these new posts along with some of your own personal success stories ~

Here’s to Living 2012 Boundrylessly !!

Will to Succeed ~

Will to Succeed ~

Be Boundryless ~ Know the Difference between Data, Knowledge and Wisdom !!

Powerful Planning + Action = Success

Powerful Planning + Action = Success

When trying to master anything, it’s important to understand that “learning” something is not the same thing as “KNOWING” it !!

SO Confused Yet?

Read on ….

I can understand why you might be. Beginning with the way we were raised in the Western academic structure, where we were tested on “learning” and not necessarily “knowledge,” we were lead to believe that learning was the goal, not the first step on the Path to wisdom.

Here is a brief description of each of the three general states of “understanding” which leads to what we refer to as Mastery.

1) Learning – This is the phase of the process where we are exposed to new information about the topic. But, it is important to understand that learning something – that getting information – is not the same as really “knowing” that thing.

As a quick example to illustrate my point, I once learned how to say, “Hello. How are you?” in the Japanese language. But…

I don’t know how to say, “Hello, How are you?” in Japanese.

How is this possible? After all, I learned it, right?

I took the time to have someone teach me how to say this simple phrase in another language – supposedly so I could communicate, at least at this level, with someone else who speaks Japanese.

What happened?

Well …….. I didn’t practice to Integrate it then Retain the information so that it was available for use whenever I really needed it.

I didn’t work to “KNOW” how to say this simple, Japanese, greeting.

And this leads to…

2)Knowledge – Knowledge occurs when we have worked with the information long enough to “not have to think about it when we need it.” We know how to speak the English language. We don’t have to stop and think about which words to use, how to form proper syntax or sentence structure, or anything else, before we open our mouths to communicate with someone else.

In fact, we don’t think about it much at all. We simply say what we want to say and the words are there.

That’s knowledge.

It’s the same for tying your shoes, swimming, walking, writing, or a thousand other things that we take for granted. And…

…it should be the exact same with ANYTHING, Knowledge is not power …….
USING that Knowledge is POWER!!!

Getting the idea!?!

But, this isn’t it. Not if your goal is really Mastery.

It’s not until you know more than what you know, that you will have reached the final stage. And this is the stage of…

3)WISDOM – This is the level where you know how to utilize your knowledge appropriate for the situation you’re in. Not generally – but specifically.

This is the phase of your progress when you can take the lessons learned and apply it in a completely different and unrelated situation – and that technique is exactly the right thing for producing the results you needed.

~~

Is it possible to “learn” these things?

Sure it is!

But, again, the question is not about whether you learned it or not.

The question is, and always will be…

Can you use it when you need it? And…

Can you apply the lesson you learned, and knowledge you have, to be successful in more situations than you originally learned the technique for in the first place?

That’s “wisdom.”

That’s Mastery!

Speaking of Mastery just HAD to include this pic……
