All breakthroughs spring from one common thing-an insight. Now to have this insight, you've got to be prepared to ask yourself some tough questions (not to mention, muzzle your ego), and be willing to hear and accept the TRUE answers, stripped of excuses and justifications.
Watching Episode I of Tony Robbins' Breakthroughs on NBC (Tuesdays @ 8pm) or on www.hulu.com if you missed it, we saw a newlywed couple have their world devastated on their wedding day, when Frank has an accident at the pool and becomes a quadriplegic. We then see how guilt, exhaustion, anger, and the blame game that ensues, rocks the foundation of their marriage, and how Tony Robbins works with them to overcome these extreme challenges, and turn their lives around.
You know my favorite saying, folks, "perspective is 9/10 of the law" and this episode gave me a shot a reality stronger than an adrenaline shot to the sternum a la "Pulp Fiction." (Remember that scene?) How much about our lives do we complain about every day, how many times do we cry that the sky is falling? How many times do we ask, "Why Me?", that we forget to ask the most important question when life kicks us in the ass, "What now?"
Still, our own problems are REAL to us, and Tony Robbins delivers up the following challenge, #1 of 6 challenges that are meant to help us find breakthroughs in our own patterns, and help us lead extraordinary lives : http://www.breakthroughinsider.com. Please check it the 30 minute video challenge Tony Robbins puts out. It's all about honestly identifying patterns of emotions you live with, and breaking out of the ones that harm you. I look forward to hearing about your own personal breakthrough on this blog's "Comments" section! Remember, you're not alone! See you at the gym! :)

But what do you do when you still feel a bit out of balance? What happens when you need work, need help on the inside? And I don't mean your heart, your liver, etc., I mean the deep inside. The part you don't show the world, but can't hide from yourself. The part that keeps on going, sometimes without knowing why. The part that searches for meaning in a superficial world. The part that propels you forward, even when life starts throwing things your way that are too hard to handle on your own, and still you feel you are alone...
Then I came across an email in my inbox that I almost discarded- but something told me to check it out this time...I'm really looking forward to it.
Tony Robbins is appearing for 6 weeks on NBC on a series called Breakthroughs. Yeah, yeah. I know. Tony Robbins. Walking on hot coals. Infomercials. "Yes Man" Seminars. But hold on a minute-what's wrong with working to inspire people, to empower them? Have we become so cynical as a society that we regard positive thinkers and do-gooders as "hokey"? Don't we all need someone in our lives that encourages us to be the BEST that we can be? And you know what I always say, "Perspective is 9/10 of the law." Often times, circumstances are beyond our control. But what if we could change the way we look at things? Couldn't that make a world of difference?
I haven't seen any of the episodes in the series yet, but it promises to be an eye-opener. A tear-jerker. A Breakthrough experience. You get the picture.
Here's how it works:
Each week watch the newest episode of Breakthrough with Tony Robbins, Tuesdays 8/7 CST on NBC, (or if you miss any you can watch it on Hulu) and then, go back to their website:
Tony Robbins will post a new personal coaching session for you after every episode airs. In each session he will take the lessons from the show and teach you how to apply them in your own life in a very simple yet powerful way to create your own breakthroughs and use them to help the people you care about.
The sessions will just be 20 -30 minutes each, here, on video, and there's absolutely no charge for this course, it's completely free.So please check it out, and pass this link on to your friends-
I don't know about you, but I sure could use a breakthrough!

10.) Back Pain: Excess weight, especially in the abdominal area, can eventually put strain on one of your body's most vulnerable parts- the spine. And of course, ladies, lower back pain is especially common for you if you're overweight. Constant or recurring back pain adversely affects your quality of life. Left unchecked over time, can be very debilitating. And the best treatment for this lower back pain? Yep, you guessed it-weight loss and exercises! As little as 20 lbs (especially around your mid-section) can make a big difference in reducing the heavy load borne by your spine! So the sooner you take off the extra pounds with a slow, sensible weight loss program, the better for your health.
