  • How to achieve that fitness goal

    How to achieve that fitness goal

    Do you have unmet goals? If so, you aren’t alone. Most women live with unfulfilled aspirations. Unfortunately, many widely used self-help techniques fail to deliver results. Case in point: You’ve probably heard of the “Yale Goal Study” where researchers interviewed Yale’s 1953 graduating class, asking whether or not the students had written down specific goals that they wanted to achieve. Then twenty years down the road the researchers looked up each student and discovered that the 3% of the class who had written down their goals had accumulated more personal wealth than the other 97% combined. Very compelling story, but complete fiction. The ....

  • Get Uncomfortable

    Get Uncomfortable

    There's a story about a boy named Mikey who noticed something odd about his pet fish. When it came time to clean out the fish bowl, Mikey filled the bathtub with water and placed the fish inside. Despite the large space the tub provided, the little boy noticed the goldfish swam only in a tiny circle in a corner of the huge bath tub. Round and round and round. Concerned, the boy called his mom, fearing that the fish was sick. As it turns out, the fish was displaying what psychologist Abraham Maslow coined the "Jonah complex" - it was so used to the confines of the bowl that swimming in the same small circle was all it could do when given the opportunity to enjoy larger waters.
