10 Foods Business People Eat To Boost Their Energy

Mar 31, 2016

‘What you eat is what you are’ – a common saying that is frankly quite true. The body and every single cell in it are affected positively or negatively by everything we feed them with. If you often feel like your fatigue is really on the down-side and you need to boost up your energy quick, maybe you should take a look at the ten most common foods eaten by business people, those who need energy boosters the most.

 

  1. Chicken Breasts. The main trigger for boosting your energy here is the packed up portion of proteins, a valuable source of energy. The use of the proteins will be more effective if the meat is grilled and not fried.chickenbreast
  2. Egg yolk,  something full of proteins and usually consumed for breakfast – Many people fear to eat the yolk, but more and more studies show that the key beneficial ingredient of the egg is the yolk,  so just go for it.egg-yolk
  3. Bananas, are a quick and compact fruit that you can grab on the run and give you a great boost of energy.  Keep them in your office for your assistant and employees, to make sure their energy stays up as well.BANANA-GOODNESS

    4. Greek Yogurt
    contains a double portion of proteins in comparison to the normal yogurt. Still there are Greek Yogurts that have a lot of sugar and fructose in them and should be avoided. The plain ones are the best and go really good with a spoon of jam.bowl and spoon with joghurt
  4. Almonds will support you throughout the hunger cravings and pack you up with beneficial fats that will reduce the risk of a possible heart attack. Besides a handful of almonds, you can consume almond milk or almond butter with almost the same positive effect on your energy as the nut itself.almonds
  5. Steel-cut-oatmeal also called pinhead oats or coarse oatmeal is the one oatmeal that doesn’t have preservers and unneeded sugars in it that can ruin your metabolism and leave you tired.steal cut oatmeal
  6. Kale is a great green food that will definitely boost up your energy. Of course, every other green vegetable will have a positive impact on your health and energy, but Kale is the top energy booster. You can get creative and use it in many different ways, from smoothies to burgers.

  7. Blueberries are not only tasty but offer a great deal of energy as well. Meanwhile, blueberries work in improving your memory, lowering your blood pressure and carry antioxidant characteristics.blueberries
  8. Garlic not for a business person right, wrong. Eat some at least four times a week and be sure to chase it with fresh lemon water to rid the smell.   Garlic is a great antioxidant and helps to prevent and reduce the severity of common illnesses like the flu and common cold.Garlic-bulbs
  9. Dark chocolate with 70% of cocoa or more is another top energy booster and has capabilities greater than blueberries or nuts. When you feel really exhausted, dare to have a mix of dark chocolate, nuts and berries and get ready for an energy blast-off.chocolate

How To Stop Change From Occurring in Your World

Mar 24, 2016

Shane White

Someone recently told me they are sick of the self-help gurus that perpetuate the need to grow, change, and constantly evolve into a higher version of themselves. Why do THEY always have to be the one to do the changing and adapting? Why can’t their ex’s do some soul-searching and examine their own destructive patterns?

If this resonates with you, I have good news. To close the books on the pressure for personal growth, there are two basic attitudes to consider.

How you deal with your attitude regarding DEMAND and DESIRE will shift your trajectory dramatically.

A attitude of demandingness can be likened to that of a requirement. You require a certain standard of behavior of others. When you cultivate an attitude of demandingness towards others, you can stop the need for growth and change within yourself by requiring (demanding) others to be responsible for your personal happiness and well-being. In doing so, this removes your own empowerment and instead empowers others to be responsible for your personal growth and fulfillment. A great example is, “If you weren’t so mean to me, I would be a much happier person.” When you develop the art of blaming others, you empower them to bear the responsibility for your inner happiness and lack of change. Consequently, your reason for not trying and giving up has now been legitimized. By not taking control and responsibility of your feelings, and allowing outside forces to control how you feel will give you a free pass to behave less than stellar.
In contrast, an attitude of desire can be likened to that of a request. You request a certain standard of behavior of yourself. When you cultivate an attitude of request towards yourself, you can stop the need for growth and change within yourself by merely desiring things be different. The way you present this to the world is, “I hope things will get better,” or “I wish things would be different.” This way you come off with all the good intentions without really having to do anything about it. And, the bonus is, that you get lots of sympathy and attention. The people around you say things like, “Oh that poor gal, she has such a good heart and has a desire for everything to be alright.” You get to portray yourself as the helpless victim and all the enablers will come out of the woodwork to do things for you.

I will warn you, some of the radicals will reverse the order and cultivate an attitude of demandingness and require more of themselves and who they are at a core level. On this flip side, they will cultivate an attitude of desire when it comes to the behavior of others. They desire or wish their ex or others would behave better, but they take on the mindset that they can’t control others; only themselves. They make a conscious choice to be happy and don’t allow the crazy behavior of others, whom they can’t control, to control their own behavior.
So stay away from these folks if you don’t want to grow, change and evolve into the best version of yourself. Or do you?

Trade School vs College

Mar 17, 2016

Boris Gjerovski
University Sts. Cyril and Methodius in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia

The time we live in has changed measurably and the old models of education lack some ingenuity to fit the new market rules. The fact is that whenever we want to invest in our lives while being a part of the educational system, our enrollment in it for the purpose grabbing the best diploma/degree which will ‘guarantee’ better future is a rule we must follow. But the market has changed and the opportunities for learning have twisted significantly. Now college is still a great way to help a person acquire the right skills for being a good professional in certain fields, but is it really necessary in order to succeed in life? Is it really the best and only way to become good at something, or better alternatives which save a lot of time and money are equally good, or even better? Let’s analyze the average costs of education, length of studies and possible benefits between trade schools (starting trend in the 90’s) and average colleges in order to see things as they really are.

College
Students decide to go to college because of the increase of possible income, which is around $17,000 bigger with a college diploma, rather than working with a high school diploma on a yearly basis. Most of the colleges have a four year program for getting bachelor degree in which the person looses approximately $ 30,000, which is considered the average opportunity costs for being a college student instead of a worker. Trade Schools last only two years, so the initial pros of such in money based value is $60,000 plus. The comparison of length looks something like this, but only theoretically. The Institute of Education of USA published a survey saying that from all of the attendants at college, only 60% get their diploma. According to US News, 64% of graduates need more than 4 years to finish college, which adds an astonishing average of $70,000 of student expenses yearly, possible $100,000 considering the opportunity costs. Great deals of expenses follow later in life because of the student loans, and graduates end up being stuck with $50,000-$100,000 of debt after the studies are completed. Well at least the graduates will have a brighter future in their profession right? – Supposedly, but it is not so certain anymore. The unemployment and underemployment rates for college graduates have doubled since 2007, leaving a lot of students work-less and unable to pay their student loans.

Trade School
Trade schools come as a great alternative and opportunity for merely secure future. First of the benefits, as I mentioned before, are the spared two years (at least) of student expenses. Since the average yearly expenses of college students come up to $70,000, trade school students save $140,000 because of the shorter course of studies. And what you get with the diploma? A college graduate is expected to have $47,000 annual income, $11,200 more than students coming from trade schools, says the National Center for Educational Statistics. Since the college graduates spend $140,000 more, the students from trade schools have a 12 year advantage until balancing earnings vs. expenses with college graduates. The average student debt load for trade school graduates is 70% less than college graduates, summing up to $10,000 per student. Another factor of benefit for students who decide to go study in trade schools are the opened job possibilities. Since most of the population working ‘specific’ jobs like mechanics or dentists hygienists is older, the labor market narrows and needs to be filled with more young enthusiasts that are sure to get the job they were taught for. And as long as the competition is low, the incomes of the services of technicians will continue to rise. Sure, four year college degree offers bigger possibilities on longer terms, but nowadays nothing is certain and the conditions and costs of studying change drastically. Whatever a student chooses should go for it until the goal is reached, and be satisfied with nothing less.
