August 6 2008 Self Development Newsletter

Here are the latest articles from the Self Development site at

I have posted 4 new articles since last week's newsletter:

1/ Keeping Yourself Off Balance
There are old programs playing in your mind that are so much a part of who you are and how you’re living life, you probably don’t even realize it.

These programs are so familiar that even if they’re keeping you off balance, you’ve unconsciously accepted and embraced them as a way of living life.

2/ Finding Balance
Staying emotionally and physically fit is about finding balance in an often stressful world. A well-balanced life means finding, making and enjoying quality time for the important things.

Let’s take a look at how thoughts and emotions play a major role in finding balance and controlling time.

3/ Good Communication Begins With Belief
You can’t function well in life without having the ability to communicate effectively.

Whether you’re communicating in business or day-to-day with family, how well you communicate often determines how satisfied you are with yourself and your life. Effective communication begins with belief.

4/ Maria Shriver - Just Who Will you Be - A Review
Here’s the complete title: Just Who Will You Be?- Big Question - Little Book -Answer Within.

Wow, what can I say, I’m gushing! I rarely “gush” over a book but I am gushing over this one. You can read it in an hour or two. A little book with a big message – live your life listening to your heart

Enjoy and let me know on the forum what you think.

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!

May want to take the quiz I've just posted on my website - it's called Do You Feel Off Balance.

It goes hand-in-hand with this week's featured article - Keeping Yourself Off Balance.

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!

Until next week,
