Happy New Year 2018!

 

On behalf of the Goldzone Ladies & Gentlemen, we wish you a very happy and prosperous New Year 2018!

One of our key intentions is to have more fun in 2018! Let’s leave the serious and the boring in 2017 and do more play in the motto of “Work Hard, Play Hard!”

SUGAR: The Bitter Truth

This is an old video. However, it is as relevant today as it was years ago! Dr. Robert H. Lustig makes the point that we have been trying the low-fat approach for 40 years and it has failed to make us slimmer or healthier. In fact, we have gotten fatter and sicker. While the percentage of our daily calorie intake accounted for by fat has dropped steadily, the incidence of obesity and related illnesses, including type 2 diabetes, has gone through the roof. “Sugar is the problem,” states Lustig, “and yet public health officials are still advising us to follow a low-fat diet.”

75-Year Study: Good Relationships Keep Us Happier and Healthier

From Harvard Psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, edited by Andrew John Harrison.

Ask most young people what they want from life and they will tell you money and fame. Landmark 75-year study of what actually matters reveals lessons that aren’t about wealth or fame or working harder and harder. The clearest message that we get is this:

Good relationships keep us happier and healthier.

Harvard’s Grant & Glueck study tracked the physical and emotional well-being of 268 male graduates from Harvard, as well as 456 poor men growing up in Boston from 1939 to 2014. Multiple generations of researchers analyzed brain scans, blood samples, self-reported surveys and interactions of these men to compile their findings.

The conclusions are simple. Close relationships can make or break a person’s well-being, according to Robert Waldinger, Harvard professor of psychology and director of the center that sponsored the study.

The study reveals the following lessons:

Is The World Becoming More or Less Violent?

Ask most people if the world has become more or less violent and they will say MORE!

Watching the mainstream news and listening to politicians during an election cycle, one would conclude that the world is going to hell and everything is getting worse and worse.

Conspiracy theorists, fundamental religious zealots, and people who hate change lament declining morals, standards, and values. It can appear as though we are in the middle of a renaissance of deceit, dishonesty, and violence.

In reality, these sentiments may be based on people’s local experiences, however, when you look at the world as a whole, violence is declining, there is more accountability for big businesses, and transparency for politicians than at any other time in HISTORY!

It is true when everything is covered up and people are in denial of how things actually are, there is the appearance of order, safety, and security. Bubbling just under the surface is an entirely different reality. Once this reality is exposed, it can look like everything is going backward, when in fact things are getting better because the hidden is no longer out of view and people can see it. Once you can see it, you can change it.

Check out this fantastic presentation by Harvard professor Steven Pinker from 2007. Steven lays out the case for how we may be living in the safest period in history!

In Love in Paris

See you in Paris at the GOLDZONE Relationship Week in 2018?

When Is The Best Time To Visit Thailand?

We love organizing educational and expansive experiences in Thailand! My first visit was in 1989. Wow, have things changed since then!

When is the best time to go to Thailand? When you are hungry. When you are bored. When you need a friend. When you are lonely. When you are tired. When you need a change of pace. When you need an updraft. GOLDZONE + Thailand = MAGIC. Now is the best time, RIGHT NOW!

We look forward to seeing you at your next GOLDZONE Event in Thailand!

 

Can You Buy More Time?

Money can buy you a lot of things and experiences including education, opportunities, freedom, comfort, the necessities of life, luxuries, etc.

Some say money can’t buy you happiness and love. I say it can, to a point. Try being poor and see how you like it.

If you are a nasty person who is very unattractive on the inside, money can buy you the appearance of love, and someone to spend your time with who is a real beauty.

Studies show that beyond a minimum amount of money to meet your minimum needs for food, clothing, shelter, entertainment, education and some leisure time, money’s utility to make us happy diminishes. What money can buy you is control over your time. From that point on you are free to choose how you spend your time. If you are like most people in Richland, living in the Rat Race you suffer from Time Poverty.

The real luxury in life is the time do what you want with the people you love.
