Are you Motivated?

Everyday we are each faced with many obstacles that we could allow to impact our motivation.  These can be health, money, lack of time and the list could go on.

How is it that some people are able to achieve great success in spite of their obstacles and others in similar circumstances seem to become engulfed by them?

The answer is mindset. 

For some people this seems to come naturally, for others we need to surround ourselves with vision boards and positive affirmations.

If you wake up each morning and are confronted with obstacles you may find it hard to get motivated and push beyond the status quo.  What if, you could wake up each morning being reminded of what is possible in your life? 

Robin Palmer created My Wake Up Call® Motivational Alarm Clocks and messages.  The messages awaken you each morning to positive energy and can be stored on an iPod, MP3 player, iPhone or purchased on CD. 

Start the day off right by listening to positive messages each morning that are up to 10 minutes in length.  Each month of messages consists of 15 messages which are played sequentially for 15 days and then shuffled for the remainder of the month. 

Each of the 7 sets currently available has a sample message to listen to along with a bio on the narrator.  For more information on each set of messages you can select from the list below:

My Powerthoughts Wake Up Call™ with John St. Augustine
My Workout Wake Up Call® with Robin Palmer
My Wisdom Wake Up Call® with Mary Morissey
My Wellness Wake Up Call™ with Jennifer Jimenez
My Wealthy Wake Up Call™ with Mat Boggs
My Good Grief Wake Up Call™ with Debi Tibbles
My Workout Wake Up Call® (En Español) with Dr. Cesar Vargas

What would you choose as your Wake Up message?

FDA reviews Antibacterial Soap for Hormone Effects

Over the past few years I have been learning a lot about the hormones and chemicals that our bodies are exposed to on a daily basis and have been working on eliminating as many as possible from our household.

In April this year the FDA decided to review the effects of Triclosan based on recent animal studies that have shown triclosan alters hormone regulation.

Triclosan is commonly used in antibacterial liquid soaps and is also found in some toothpastes, body washes and some cosmetics. It may also be found in products such as clothing, kitchenware, furniture, and toys.

Skin is our bodies largest organ and with young children there is a lot of hand washing that happens in our house. So as soon as I learned about the FDA concerns, I went on a mission to find new liquid soap for our family and to check our toothpaste and other household items.

I discovered that finding products without triclosan was not an easy task. To make things easier for everyone interested in making the change, I would like to ask my friends in Network Marketing or Direct Sales to share information and links to their triclosan free products.
