 Networking Tip of the Week

There are four ways, and only four ways, in which we have contact with the world. We are
evaluated and classified by these four contacts: what we do, how we look, what we say, and
how we say it.
– Dale Carnegie


Wellness Tip of the Week  - Hanger Oners
Have you seen those people at the health club hunched over the treadmill hanging on for dear life?
Are you one of them? Here are three reasons never to hang on to the bars:
 1. Posture – you may develop a permanent hunch back (shoulders back, chest out, head neutral)
 2. Breathing – when you are bent, your breath is shallow rather than deep
 3. Balance – It is impossible to develop balance hanging on
 And, if attracting others is one of your goals, you may be creating a negative effect.

to understand the ‘why’ and how to control your future. Reinforced failure overtime will guarantee
future failure. Learn how to control your subconscious mind for a better life.
