Pleasing Everyone

When we worry about what other people think, we let them control us. We waste a lot of time and energy trying to figure out what other people want us to be. Then, we waste a lot of time and energy trying to become like that rather than just being what God made us to be. You are manipulated and controlled by somebody else.

Worrying about what other people think is dangerous because were more likely to cave in to criticism. It means we dont always do the right thing; instead, we do the thing that everybody wants us to do.

And we are in danger of missing God's best because were so worried about what other people what us to do that we cant stop to think about what God wants us to do.

You cannot please everybody. You cant please everybody.

Its not necessary to please everybody. There is a myth that says you must be loved and approved by everybody in order to be happy. Thats just not true. You dont have to please everybody in order to be happy in life.

Rejection will not ruin your life. It hurts, sure. Its not fun. Its uncomfortable. But rejection will not ruin your life unless you let it.

Quit trying to please everybody! Remember that nobody can make you feel inferior unless you give them permission.

Management Tip: Change resistors

Don't Dismiss Critics of Change Not everyone will be excited about change. People who resist are often perceived as inflexible obstacles to overcome . But don't think of them simply as barriers to success. While some people do undermine change efforts, it is shortsighted to think everyone will, or even want to. Try to understand why people are resistant. Ask what they are concerned about and listen to their criticism. Doing so may uncover valid concerns that need to be addressed. Put everyone's perspectives to use and make resisters a part of the solution

Today's Management Tip was adapted from the Harvard ManageMentor Online Module: Change Management.

10 Things that you can Control in your life




Are you controlling them or vice-versa?

We humans spend much of our time trying to control every aspect of our lives.
Unfortunately, too often we try and control things that are simply beyond our control.
The list of what we can control is quite short, but once you know these 10 things you will be able to take control of your own life.

1.
What you do: Your actions are yours alone.
You choose to make them or not make them and you are responsible for the effects of those actions.

2.
What you say: Likewise, the words you speak (or write) are also consciously chosen.
Like actions, they have an impact on your life and the lives of those you contact.

3.
What you think:  Yes, there are some subconscious thoughts that you can't control.
But the things that you really think about, your beliefs, your ideals, etc. are concepts you have chosen to accept and believe in.

4.
Your work: Many people like to overlook this one, it being much easier to say, "Oh, I'm! trapped in my job because I don't have a degree, experience, etc."
That's simple a way of denying one's responsibility in having chosen the job in the first place.
It's your job and you chose it.
If you stay (or go), that's a choice as well.

5.
The people you associate with:  There's a famous T-shirt that states: "It's hard to soar like an eagle when you're surrounded by turkeys."
Colloquial is very often correct!
Your friends can either lift you up or bring you down.
You make the decision which type of friends you wish to have.

6.
Your basic physical health.  Much about our health is a factor of genetics, environment, and exposure.
Much more of our health is simply a matter of the decisions we make about our health, such as: diet, exercise, drugs, sleep, routine physicals, check-ups, etc.

7.
The environment you live in:  Your house, the condition of your home, the town you live in, the amenities available to you are all things you can control, although some to a lesser degree (i.e., you decide to tolerate them or move someplace else).

8.
Your fiscal situation: Having or not having enough money is a factor of what you make versus what you spend.

9.
Your time: You choose how to "spend" your time and how much of your time to give to various activities.
You'll never get more time than the 24 hours your given each day.

10.
Your legacy: All your actions, words, and knowledge that you share while you are living become the gift that you leave when you are gone

Success Advice: Be a Good Listener


To succeed, you need to learn how to listen first.
Pay attention to other people who have enjoyed successes in their life, attend seminars given by people that can motivate and encourage, or be open to hearing that a particular idea is not a good one. Good listening takes time to learn but in the end, it will be your greatest tool.

Study: Happiness Comes From Respect, Not Money

A recent U.C. Berkeley study suggests that admiration from peers drives MBAs more than fat salaries
Apparently there's a reason why so many Silicon Valley start-up millionaires (and billionaires) continue to wear the same tattered jeans and flip flops they've always worn: It's not the money that makes them happy; it's the respect their hard work garners.
At least, that's one conclusion you might draw from a recent study conducted by Berkeley's Haas School of Business. The study found that individuals rarely equate socioeconomic status with their subjective well-being (SWB). More than money, the study says, it's the "the respect and admiration one has in face-to-face groups (e.g., among friends or coworkers" that has a stronger effect on one's happiness.
The study was based on a survey Berkeley professor Cameron Anderson conducted with Haas School MBA students nine months after graduation. Cameron and his colleagues asked the MBAs questions about their overall happiness at work and found the responses didn't correlate with the money they were making, but with the esteem in which their peers held them.
"Occupying a higher position in the local ladder thus created a sense of influence and control over one's social environment, as well as a sense of belonging and acceptance," Anderson wrote in the study.
A TechCrunch article echoed the study's findings, arguing that the correllation between peer-respect and happiness is especially true for entrepreneurs in the tech industry. The article cites Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as an example. Zuckerberg's earliest employees remember that he still slept on a bed on the floor even after his company passed a $1 billion valuation, preferring to work long hours and garner work-ethic adoration. Material wealth didn't matter as much to Zuckerberg as the quality and output of what he was creating with the Facebook team, wrote Facebook's first product manager Ezra Callahan on Quora.
The Berkeley study might also give some insight into why so many Silicon Valley start-up types don't stay in salaried positions very long before they're off to work on another start-up. Facebook CTO Bret Taylor, to name a recent example, plans to leave the company this summer to become an entrepreneur again. But there are scores of other examples of former employees from Google, eBay, PayPal, Twitter, etc., who traded well-paid jobs to work on their own companies.
"The joy that comes with an influx of money wanes quickly as people become accustomed to how wealth shapes their daily lives," concludes the study. A good reputation--and not a big salary--may be where the real happiness link lies for entrepreneurs

Life Laws by Dr Phil McGraw

 

Life Law #1: You either get it or you don't. Strategy: Become one of those who gets it.

It's easy to tell these people apart. Those who "get it" understand how things work and have a strategy to create the results they want. Those who don't are stumbling along looking puzzled, and can be found complaining that they never seem to get a break. 

You must do what it takes to accumulate enough knowledge to "get it." You need to operate with the information and skills that are necessary to win. Be prepared, tune in, find out how the game is played and play by the rules.

In designing a strategy and getting the information you need — about yourself, people you encounter, or situations — be careful from whom you accept input. Wrong thinking and misinformation can seal your fate before you even begin.


Life Law #2: You create your own experience. Strategy: Acknowledge and accept accountability for your life. Understand your role in creating results. 

You cannot dodge responsibility for how and why your life is the way it is. If you don't like your job, you are accountable. If you are overweight, you are accountable. If you are not happy, you are accountable. You are creating the situations you are in and the emotions that flow from those situations.

Don't play the role of victim, or use past events to build excuses. It guarantees you no progress, no healing, and no victory. You will never fix a problem by blaming someone else. Whether the cards you've been dealt are good or bad, you're in charge of yourself now.

Every choice you make — including the thoughts you think — has consequences. When you choose the behavior or thought, you choose the consequences. If you choose to stay with a destructive partner, then you choose the consequences of pain and suffering. If you choose thoughts contaminated with anger and bitterness, then you will create an experience of alienation and hostility. When you start choosing the right behavior and thoughts — which will take a lot of discipline — you'll get the right consequences.


Life Law #3: People do what works. Strategy: Identify the payoffs that drive your behavior and that of others.

Even the most destructive behaviors have a payoff. If you did not perceive the behavior in question to generate some value to you, you would not do it. If you want to stop behaving in a certain way, you've got to stop "paying yourself off" for doing it.

Find and control the payoffs, because you can't stop a behavior until you recognize what you are gaining from it. Payoffs can be as simple as money gained by going to work to psychological payoffs of acceptance, approval, praise, love or companionship. It is possible that you are feeding off unhealthy, addictive and imprisoning payoffs, such as self-punishment or distorted self-importance. 

Be alert to the possibility that your behavior is controlled by fear of rejection. It's easier not to change. Try something new or put yourself on the line. Also consider if your need for immediate gratification creates an appetite for a small payoff now rather than a large payoff later.


Life Law #4: You cannot change what you do not acknowledge. Strategy: Get real with yourself about life and everybody in it. Be truthful about what isn't working in your life. Stop making excuses and start making results. 

If you're unwilling or unable to identify and consciously acknowledge your negative behaviors, characteristics or life patterns, then you will not change them. (In fact, they will only grow worse and become more entrenched in your life.) You've got to face it to replace it.

Acknowledgment means slapping yourself in the face with the brutal reality, admitting that you are getting payoffs for what you are doing, and giving yourself a no-kidding, bottom-line truthful confrontation. You cannot afford the luxury of lies, denial or defensiveness.

Where are you now? If you hope to have a winning life strategy, you have to be honest about where your life is right now. Your life is not too bad to fix and it's not too late to fix it. But be honest about what needs fixing. If you lie to yourself about any dimension of your life, an otherwise sound strategy will be compromised.


Life Law #5: Life rewards action. Strategy: Make careful decisions and then pull the trigger. Learn that the world couldn't care less about thoughts without actions.

Talk is cheap. It's what you do that determines the script of your life. Translate your insights, understandings and awareness into purposeful, meaningful, constructive actions. They are of no value until then. Measure yourself and others based on results — not intentions or words.

Use any pain you have to propel you out of the situation you are in and to get you where you want to be. The same pain that burdens you now could be turned to your advantage. It may be the very motivation you need to change your life.

Decide that you are worth the risk of taking action, and that your dreams are not to be sold out. Know that putting yourself at risk may be scary, but it will be worth it. You must leave behind the comfortable and familiar if you are to move onward and upward.


Life Law #6: There is no reality, only perception. Strategy: Identify the filters through which you view the world. Acknowledge your history without being controlled by it.

You know and experience this world only through the perceptions that you create. You have the ability to choose how you perceive any event in your life, and you exercise this power of choice in every circumstance, every day of your life. No matter what the situation, you choose your reaction, assigning meaning and value to an event. 

We all view the world through individual filters, which influence the interpretations we give events, how we respond, and how we are responded to. Be aware of the factors that influence the way you see the world, so you can compensate for them and react against them. If you continue to view the world through a filter created by past events, then you are allowing your past to control and dictate both your present and your future.

Filters are made up of fixed beliefs, negative ideas that have become entrenched in your thinking. They are dangerous because if you treat them as fact, you will not seek, receive or process new information, which undermines your plans for change. If you "shake up" your belief system by challenging these views and testing their validity, the freshness of your perspective can be startling.


Life Law #7: Life is managed; it is not cured. Strategy: Learn to take charge of your life and hold on. This is a long ride, and you are the driver every single day.

You are a life manager, and your objective is to actively manage your life in a way that generates high-quality results. You are your own most important resource for making your life work. Success is a moving target that must be tracked and continually pursued.

Effective life management means you need to require more of yourself in your grooming, self-control, emotional management, interaction with others, work performance, dealing with fear, and in every other category you can think of. You must approach this task with the most intense commitment, direction and urgency you can muster. 

The key to managing your life is to have a strategy. If you have a clear-cut plan, and the courage, commitment and energy to execute that strategy, you can flourish. If you don't have a plan, you'll be a stepping stone for those who do. You can also help yourself as a life manager if you manage your expectations. If you don't require much of yourself, your life will be of poor quality. If you have unrealistic standards, then you are adding to your difficulties.


Life Law #8: We teach people how to treat us. Strategy: Own, rather than complain about, how people treat you. Learn to renegotiate your relationships to have what you want.

You either teach people to treat you with dignity and respect, or you don't. This means you are partly responsible for the mistreatment that you get at the hands of someone else. You shape others' behavior when you teach them what they can get away with and what they cannot.

If the people in your life treat you in an undesirable way, figure out what you are doing to reinforce, elicit or allow that treatment. Identify the payoffs you may be giving someone in response to any negative behavior. For example, when people are aggressive, bossy or controlling — and then get their way — you have rewarded them for unacceptable behavior. 

Because you are accountable, you can declare the relationship "reopened for negotiation" at any time you choose, and for as long as you choose. Even a pattern of relating that is 30 years old can be redefined. Before you reopen the negotiation, you must commit to do so from a position of strength and power, not fear and self-doubt.


Life Law #9: There is power in forgiveness. Strategy: Open your eyes to what anger and resentment are doing to you. Take your power back from those who have hurt you.

Hate, anger and resentment are destructive, eating away at the heart and soul of the person who carries them. They are absolutely incompatible with your own peace, joy and relaxation. Ugly emotions change who you are and contaminate every relationship you have. They can also take a physical toll on your body, including sleep disturbance, headaches, back spasms, and even heart attacks. 

Forgiveness sets you free from the bonds of hatred, anger and resentment. The only way to rise above the negatives of a relationship in which you were hurt is to take the moral high ground, and forgive the person who hurt you. 

Forgiveness is not about another person who has transgressed against you; it is about you. Forgiveness is about doing whatever it takes to preserve the power to create your own emotional state. It is a gift to yourself and it frees you. You don't have to have the other person's cooperation, and they do not have to be sorry or admit the error of their ways. Do it for yourself.


Life Law #10: You have to name it before you can claim it. Strategy: Get clear about what you want and take your turn. 

Not knowing what you want — from your major life goals to your day-to-day desires — is not OK. The most you'll ever get is what you ask for. If you don't even know what it is that you want, then you can't even ask for it. You also won't even know if you get there! 

By being specific in defining your goal, the choices you make along the way will be more goal-directed. You will recognize which behaviors and choices support your goals — and which do not. You will know when you are heading toward your goal, and when you are off track. 

Be bold enough to reach for what will truly fill you up, without being unrealistic. Once you have the strength and resolve enough to believe that you deserve what it is that you want, then and only then will you be bold enough to step up and claim it. Remember that if you don't, someone else will.

World's First Medical Smartphone

The smartphone has built-in sensors for monitoring heart rate, pulmonary function, blood sugar levels, body temperature and more.
4 Medical monitor developer LifeWatch AG (SWX:LIFE) has launched the world's first medical smartphone, for Android-powered devices. The smartphone has built-in sensors for monitoring heart rate, pulmonary function, blood sugar levels, body temperature and galvanic skin response (which measures psychological pressure), and other physiological variables. The system can also measure blood pressure with an attached sleeve, and can analyze blood samples.
LifeWatch has developed a range of wireless monitoring devices for emergency rooms and medical services, as well as for personal use, but this is the first time that it has combined these capabilities on a smartphone. Chinese branded mobile phone manufacturer TechFaith Wireless Communication Technology Ltd. (Nasdaq: CNTF) will manufacture the platform for LifeWatch.
LifeWatch develops the medical applications hardware and software that connects the hardware with the smartphone's systems. A German company is responsible for the design. LifeWatch invested several million dollars in the product.
The mobile-health interface is a hot development field in the world. There are various devices, not mobile phones, which collate and transmit medical data, and present them to users, and there are medical mobile apps for managing fitness, medication regimes, and even skin cancer diagnosis by photo analysis. There are also companies developing proprietary sensors for measuring a single medical variable, such as blood glucose levels or heartbeat, for integration with smartphones.
"Globes": Who is the medical smartphone intended for?
LifeWatch chairman and CEO Dr. Yacov Geva: "It is first of all intended for health-conscious consumers who have already recovered from, or are suffering from a chronic medical condition. At an advanced age, we're all suddenly liable to feel poorly in the middle of the day. With this phone, all the basic measurements are available to us. For patients, it enables effective management of their illness."
The device is not designed to diagnose heart attacks, but can monitor irregular heartbeat.
Is the device open to other medical devices and medical apps?
LifeWatch Technologies CEO Yair Tal: "That's the device's secret. Everything is inside, including medical apps, such as nutrition management, pedometer, and medication reminder. These already exist on the device and interface with data collected by us. Any app can be downloaded to the device, but there is no flow of data collected by the device to other apps. At the moment, there isn't an interface with other devices - there's no need for it."
To whom is the data produced by the smartphone sent?
Geva: "Where we operate emergency call centers, the data can be sent there. We currently have three call centers in the US, and we will establish a service in Israel to provide response to users of this product. That's part of our uniqueness as a company, which enables us to market this device. It is also possible to send the data to the patient's doctor and to an insurance company, but the data is primarily intended for the customers who are our target audience."
What regulations does this device require?
"The approval of health authorities is required as for any medical diagnostic device. We believe that we will obtain EU CE Mark certification by the end of this year and US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval the following year. It is already possible to market the device in Israel."
Aren't you worried about the rapid change in mobile phones?
"Progress in the mobile field is rapid, which is why we're readying to launch a device with new sensors and innovative capabilities in six to nine months. "
To get people to buy this device, you'll have to cause them to forego a device that is considered fun, such as the iPhone, for a device that marks them as sick. What target audience is so health conscious that it will do that?
"The product is a full telephone, which is intended for an audience that puts its health first. It is also possible to download apps onto it. We're in talks with mobile carriers in Israel and other countries to market the device through them.
LifeWatch's share price fell 2.2% in morning trading in Zurich today to CHF 7.51, giving a market cap of CHF 100 million.

Health: Tooth Sensitivity FAQ

 

Tooth sensitivity, often described by consumers as a "tooth twinge", "tooth ache" or "sore teeth" most frequently occurs when eating or drinking hot or cold food and drinks. You may also feel discomfort when consuming sweet or sour food and drinks, or when you brush your teeth and rinse with cold water. Many adults have only occasional tooth sensitivity. Some adults experience chronic pain. Tooth sensitivity may be an indication of an underlying dental problem. Please consult your dentist.

See "About Sensitive Teeth".

 

What causes sensitive teeth? [-]

Underneath the tooth's protective enamel coating is a highly porous layer called "dentine". Thousands of microscopic tubules run through the dentine. Once dentine is exposed, nerves within the dentine tubules can become susceptible to triggers such as cold food or drinks and respond with a short sharp pain.

See "What Causes Sensitive Teeth?"

How can I prevent sensitive teeth? [-]

Brushing with a sensitivity toothpaste such as Sensodyne is one way to protect against sensitivity. Another is to avoid brushing too hard and to use a soft-bristled toothbrush specially designed for sensitive teeth. Taking good care of your teeth and seeing your dentist regularly can also help protect against conditions that contribute to sensitivity, such as gum disease, tooth decay and gum recession.

See "Preventing Sensitivity".

What triggers sensitive teeth? [-]

Sensitive teeth can be caused by gum recession, loss of enamel or damage to teeth and gums. Temporary sensitivity can be caused by cosmetic professional or at-home whitening treatments. Sensitive teeth can hurt as a reaction to:

·         Cold foods or beverages

·         Hot foods or beverages

·         Sweet or sour (acidic) foods

·         Plaque and bacteria

·         Chemical stimulus

·         Dry mouth

See "Sensitivity Triggers".

Is tooth sensitivity a common dental problem? [-]

Yes. Sensitive teeth affect many people and can start at any time. Sensitive teeth may affect younger people as a result of changes in modern lifestyles and eating habits. As we consume more acidic food and drinks and snack more often during the day, we are more at risk of developing sensitive teeth.

 

Is tooth sensitivity a sign of a more serious dental problem? [-]

Often, tooth sensitivity is nothing more than a nuisance. However, sensitive teeth may indicate an underlying dental problem requiring prompt care by a dentist. See your dentist as soon as possible for advice.

See "A Sign of Something More Serious?"

Can brushing too hard cause sensitive teeth? [-]

Yes. Brushing too hard can lead to receding gums. Over time, it can also lead to wearing away of the tooth, which is another way dentine becomes exposed, causing sensitivity.

See the Pronamel Gentle Toothbrush.

Can tooth whitening cause sensitivity? [-]

Tooth whitening treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Typically, the ingredients in the products used for whitening are hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These are usually administered through a specially made tray (similar to a gum-shield). As the whitening agent is broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth colour is made lighter. Tooth sensitivity is widely recognized as being associated with tooth bleaching procedures. There is no exact science to predicting if you will experience sensitivity but reports suggest that up to 80% of patients using bleaching will experience some sensitivity. Be sure to discuss this with your dentist prior to any treatment
