With more than a million road deaths every year it is time we had safety on our roads.
We know that speed is one of the major causes of accidents world-wide. Do we want to catch more speeding drivers, employ more police on our roads (10,000 police on Australian roads over the Easter break), or do we want to end the carnage, end the loss of life, end the maiming, end the sadness and the horrendous medical costs?
As a professional risk engineer (retired) and past Chairman of the Road Safety Sub-committee, IEA (Vic) Risk Branch I am trained in how best to minimize identified risks.
It’s Time For Speed Limiters On All Cars.
Last night a 53 year old woman was driving at night and turning right when she was hit by a man in a stolen car allegedly traveling at more that twice the speed limit. The woman died at the scene and the man ran off, evading police. In another incident resulting in the death of a career truck driver simply doing his job; his truck was hit by a vehicle traveling at 180kph in a 60kph zone. The truck driver had no time to react and his rig caught fire.
We continue to spend tax payers money on driver education, and it’s important … but it’s also misleading as education is very ineffective as a risk control measure, with results often in the 5 to 10% effectiveness range.
Have you ever considered the possibility that your life or financial success is caused by your own self-worth?
Maybe you’ve never thought of it this way, but your financial worth — your income, business revenues, even your net worth — is tied into your self-worth.
If you think you may be one of these people, and would like to learn a few techniques and tips to adjust your self worth, register for this “mini” 3 video series where my good friend John Assaraf will teach you scientifically proven strategies to start re-scripting your brain to achieve your life’s goals and dreams.

Mastering your brain will make you rich beyond your wildest dreams. In the next 3 minutes, I am going to show you the inside mental game you need to have, not the business actions you need to take. You already know things you should be doing to make more money, but you’re not doing them. It’s not a matter of your desires, it’s a matter of your conditioned mind and the power it has over you. You need to program your brain for success—a process called brain entrainment.
If you want to know what is currently programmed about money at the non-conscious level of your brain right now, just look at your current income and financial situation.
One of my mentors is R Buckminster Fuller and he had said that we are all born geniuses and that our genius, including our “intuitive” talent is knocked out of us through our upbringing and education, even some of the jobs we may find ourselves in … and this could be because you didn’t know what Genius type you are!
So here is a GIFT for you and the family. I have recently been doing some work and partnering with Roger Hamilton who created Wealth Dynamics and Talent Dynamics and we want to know what type of GENIUS you are.
Here is your Genius U gift … only takes a few minutes to find out. Or click on the image below.
Once you find out please leave a short comment and like my FB page too that would be great too 🙂
You and your children were born genius’s … Einstein is another who said that way back, so that isn’t knew. Continue reading
What did you have to “Break (your) fast” today …? Yes, the first meal of the day. The meal that everyone knows is the most important meal.
What prompts me to ask this question today is what I noticed during my early morning shopping at a Safeway store just yesterday. See every morning (90% anyway) I walk, and often get my bits and pieces of fruit and veg, some groceries etc.
“While adults need to eat breakfast each day to perform their best, kids need it even more. Their growing bodies and developing brains need regular refueling often, from food. When kids skip breakfast, they don’t get what they need to be at their best.” – exert WebMD
While I was waiting to pay for my food, I noticed a well dressed woman with two young sons purchase two packets of corn chips … the boys had a pack each. I said to the ‘check-out’ lady “you do hope that isn’t their breakfast don’t you?”
The most extreme form of “competition” is war!
The television NEWS tonight was filled with new terrorism laws, ISIS, hundreds of thousands of refugees flooding into Turkey; plus tragic National and local news with lives lost and pain everywhere.
Wherever there is pain in society you can guarantee that large profits are being made.
I learnt that from one of my mentors many years ago, and it I see it everywhere still today because the vast majority of us are competing at every opportunity … ignorant of the fact that we could ALL be living prosperously and with freedom within ten years once we shift to cooperation.
Look at social media … we are all told “you must be a part of it, learn how to FB, Tweet, Instagram, “hash tag” etc etc etc …
But very few can become “winners” in the competitive world; it absolutely follows the 80:20 rule where 80% of the business / income / profits / traffic and anything else is won by 20% of the players.
And when you understand the 80:20 rule you know that 20% of the 20%, i.e. 4% receive 64% of the business and then, 0.8% or less than 1% of the “competitors” will receive a whopping 51.2% of the rewards.
You are either being competitive (and playing “WIN-LOSE”) or you are being cooperative (playing “WIN-WIN”). You are either being fearful, selfish and cynical or loving, trusting, abundant and excited.
I know which one I prefer, what about you?
If you are competing in business it means you have stopped thinking!
Join A Community Weightloss Challenge … and STEP OUT!
What do you mean “Step Out”?
One participant from one of Australian Weightloss’s last challenges is heading to Europe for a great adventure around October this year, and has set her goal to lose over 25kgs before she departs. She is on-track and is about to register in her second weightloss challenge so she stays on-track!
Why is this SO IMPORTANT to her? Because she want to enjoy her trip to the fullest, and be able to walk wherever she wants to, and be the person at the front of the group showing the way; not the one at the back having to be given a hand. At age 72 years she is still very young at heart, and sadly lost her husband and best friend a couple of years back so she has been adjusting to a new way of life.
The support from the community weightloss challenge is great and … so much different to a lot of other activities she is invited to.
Many of the social activities she has been going to involve FOOD!
Last week she went to five lunches with friends, and thank goodness she is able to apply a lot of what she has learnt at the last challenge, to ensure she makes healthy choices and avoids the “killer” foods.
Who do you know that may be interested in joining a Community Weightloss Chellenge? Many of the challenges also have FREE Fit Clubs that operate in conjunction with them. More support, more FUN and amazing value!

Consumer watchdog Choice asks the question, “Are multi-vitamins necessary when someone has a healthy balanced diet?” The obvious answer is no, they probably aren’t.
But, that begs the question straight off the plate as to who ACTUALLY has a healthy balanced diet today?
And WHY do we have an EPIDEMIC of preventable disease in our modern, developed world? Once you have read economist Paul Zane Pilzer’s book “The Wellness Revolution” you understand that food TODAY is not what it was fifty or 100 years ago.
As a personal wellness coach with Herbalife International I have done hundreds of FREE Body Analysis and rarely find a person who actually eats well. With ALL the dietary information and ‘good advice’ on the internet and in the marketplace today telling us how IMPORTANT breakfast is … YOU WOULD THINK everyone would have breakfast, but yet they don’t.
“I don’t have TIME.”
“I don’t feel like eating until later.”
“I hate cereal, and can’t stomach eggs first thing.”
I believe it was quality assurance guru Edwards Demming who said, “People don’t work, systems work.” or something to that effect. As a qualified risk manager and engineer I know exactly what he means. We are simply not designed to do what we know is BEST for us unless it is made very very EASY. Continue reading
According to Paul Zane Pilzer (author of the New Wellness Revolution)the NEW Wellness Opportunities are only now here.
“The New Wellness Revolution explains why the majority of opportunities in wellness still await the individual entrepreneur or health professional, and how new management techniques and forms of business organization (like direct selling and franchising) can allow such individuals even better technology than if they were part of a large corporation.”
While big companies like Walmart and McDonald’s are doing their part, the majority of sales are expected to be made by individual entrepreneurs and practitioners, especially through the growth of direct selling or network marketing companies. These NEW wellness opportunities are here now and everyone can benefit, personally and professionally.
Even retail outlets and restaurants are playing their part and there is collaboration between many existing retail outlets and practitioners now starting to see the opportunities for better cash-flow and long term wealth by partnering with direct selling organisations.
Another major aspect to the increasing growth of Wellness Opportunities is how rapidly they are being taken up throughout Asia, especially in countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and India.
Especially India is seeing a massive acceleration and growth in NEW wellness opportunities.
Whichever country you live in the opportunities are there for you to get involved and start making a difference to the lives of those around you.
Timing is everything, so they say however the good news is the wellness opportunities are here to stay.
Times are changing more rapidly than you think. In fact ‘change’ is changing more rapidly than most realise … and it is called the acceleration of change. We have left a time when much of our enterprises focused on making sense, and entered a period where it is more important to make more money.
So what is changing, and how does making sense again make more money too?
The way most people see change is in new electronic products such as flat screen TV’s and iPads and in medical procedures but the same change is occurring at an accelerating rate throughout many industries, throughout most countries and now throughout their economies.
The best part is … it has many benefits for the vast majority of us as we shift towards making sense.
Sure, there has also been lots of chaos, and sadly sometimes the loss of innocent lives but the future that is rapidly heading our way has many benefits.
Take Iceland as an example. A very small democratic country of some 330,000 people who, a handful of years ago were faced with financial ruin and bankruptcy. Much of the economic wows of a number of European countries has been splashed around the media for years now, but few of us understand what actually happened?
A group of average guys and girls have started an ABS Challenge over the next 30 days … 23 February to 22 March, and the challenge is to do 5,000 situps or crunches.
Sounds like a lot but it is amazing how easy it is to build up to 200 or so a day.
You don’t need to do them all at once, and make sure you are drinking lots of water to stay hydrated.
What I do is 60 to 100 after my morning yoga and stretching, then I fit in another 40 or 60 late morning, before lunch. Lunch is also a delicious high protein nutritional shake so I’m dropping a few kilos too. That helps.
Here’s the link if you want to join … https://www.facebook.com/events/233762270046700/
Remember to take responsibility for your health and wellbeing too. If you do have a pre-existing back condition or something that may be inflamed by situps get some advice first. Having said that I also recall my physio who is a doctor to one of the league teams recommended I strengthen my ‘core’ a few years ago to help prevent back problems in the future and that’s what I have been doing.
This ABS Crunch Challenge is just a great way to peel off those few extra kilos that aren’t needed, and actually contribute to a higher than necessary visceral fat (dangerous fat, especially for men) and at the same time strengthen my core.
I strongly recommend including the high protein nutritional shakes, two or three times a day if you want to drop a few kilos too.
Have fun …
