What he found was, most on this path were either too afraid or became sidetracked when it came to developing their journey to what he later named "the quest for a personal legend." Continue reading

Each day, are you becoming healthier? According to the mind/body model of wellness as outlined by The Wellness Book by Herbert Benson, the pursuit of being "well" expands as you continue along the road to self-discovery and what the author calls "self-wholeness." Think of it this way, according to the mind/body model of wellness; you are in a constant process of becoming "whole" and healthier as you learn to become more and more of yourself. Therefore, if you're not even sure where you are on this continuum or if you need a push in the right direction, these three steps will help you tap your continued health and wellness potential.

How can doing nothing help you? Here's an example. During college, I always dreaded exams. Not because I didn't study for them or feel confident that I'd learned the information, it was more that I'd decided I wasn't a good "test-taker." I wondered why everyone else seemed to get great grades without losing much sleep and why mine were mediocre, and I'd stayed up later. "I want to be sure I've got all the information embedded solidly in my mind," I told myself. Too, I had myself convinced, because I was more of a "right-brained" thinker, my creativity prevented me from doing exceptionally well on science-based exams. Continue reading

Real life, it seems, is certainly no “Field of Dreams,” the mystical place where we manifest those things—the perfect team—from thin air. No. People die, things change, the solid footing we once thought we had becomes loose and shaky. Or... Continue reading
