6 Keys to Happiness

by Brian Tracy

Achieving your own happiness is the best measure of how well you are living your life and enjoying your relationships.

You can learn how to be happier and more fulfilled in everything you do with these six principles: 

1. Everyone is different. Happiness in life is like a smorgasbord. If 100 people went to a buffet and each put food on their plate—in the quantity and mix that each felt would be most pleasing—every plate would be different. Happiness is the same way. Every person requires a particular combination of ingredients to feel the very best about themselves.

2. Listen to your heart. Only you can tell what it takes to make you happy. The only way to judge whether a job, a relationship, an investment or any decision is right for you is to get in touch with your feelings and really listen to your heart. 

3. Be true to yourself. You’re true to yourself only when you follow your inner light. You’re being the very best person you can be only when you have the courage and the fortitude to allow your definition of happiness—whatever it might be—to be the guiding light of every part of your life.

4. There are no limits. Accept the notion that you deserve all the happiness you can honestly attain through the application of your talents and abilities. The more you like and respect yourself, the more deserving you will feel of the good things in life. And the more deserving you feel, the more likely you will attain and hold on to the happiness you are working toward.

5. Make happiness your key measure. You should make happiness the organizing principle of your life. Compare every possible action and decision you make against your standard of happiness to see whether that action would make you happier or less happy.

6. Pay the price. Of course there are countless times when you will have to do little things that don’t make you happy. Sometimes these interim steps don’t increase your happiness directly, but the bliss you achieve from attaining your goal will be so great that it totally overwhelms the temporary inconveniences and dissatisfactions you have to endure in order to get there.

13 Challenges to Pursue

by Jim Rohn 

If you want to find success in life, here are 13 things to do right now:

1. Review your performance. Whether it's your communication skills, whether it's recent activity, whether it's as a CEO or whether it's on the job. Here's what my father said: “Always do more than you are paid for to make an investment in your future.” 

2. Face your fears. That's how you conquer them. Don't dismiss them—face them. 

3. Exercise your willpower to change direction. You don't have to keep doing what you've been doing the last six years if it's not yielding the benefits you want. Pick a new destination and go that way. Use your willpower to start the process. Clean up the errors. Invest it now in the next year. Watch it make the difference.

4. Admit your mistakes. Sometimes you have to admit them to others. One of the best phrases in the English language? “I'm sorry.” 

5. Refine your goals. Set some higher goals. Go for something beyond what you thought you could do. 

6. Believe in yourself. You've got to believe in the possibilities. There isn't a skill you can't learn; there isn't a discipline you can't try; there isn't a class you can't take; there isn't a book you can't read.

7. Ask for wisdom. This is communication of the highest source. Ask for wisdom that creates answers. Ask for the wisdom that creates faith to believe things are possible. Don't wish it was easier; wish you were better.

8. Invest your profits. Profits are better than wages. Wages make you a living; profits make you a fortune.

9. Live with intensity. You might as well turn it up a notch or two. Invest more of you in whatever you do. Be a little stronger; be a little wiser. Step up your vitality contribution. Put everything you've got into everything you do and then ask for more vitality, more strength and more vigor, more heart and more soul.

10. Find your place. If you just work on a job, find the best place you can serve well, and sure enough they'll ask you to occupy a better place. Keep doing your job well; do the very best you can. That's your best way out.

11. Demand integrity from yourself. Integrity is like loyalty. You can't demand it of someone else; you can only demand it of yourself. Be the best example of loyalty, and you'll get some loyal followers. Be the best example of integrity, and you'll have people around you who have integrity. Lead the way.

12. Welcome the disciplines. Disciplines build cities. A well-disciplined activity creates abundance, creates uniqueness, creates productivity.

13. Fight for what's right. If you want something valuable, you've got to fight for it. Fight the enemy and keep faith. Fight the illness and keep faith. Fight the evil and keep faith.

Higher magnesium intake is associated with lower type 2 diabetes risk

At a Glance:

A meta-analysis of 13 prospective cohort studies has found that magnesium intake is inversely associated with type 2 diabetes risk, and in a dose-dependent manner. 

Read more about this research below:

Diabetes, and in particular Type 2 diabetes, is a growing health concern worldwide. Untreated or poorly controlled diabetes increases risks of many health conditions. Adults with diabetes are two to four times more likely to have heart disease or a stroke than adults without diabetes. Experts agree that diet plays an important role in the development and progression of type 2 diabetes. According to epidemiological evidence magnesium intake may be related to the incidence of diabetes. Magnesium is found primarily in whole grains, nuts and green leafy vegetables, and is an essential cofactor in enzymes involved in glucose metabolism.

In a study published in Diabetes Care, researchers conducted a meta-analysis to examine the association between magnesium intake and the risk of type 2 diabetes. The study included 13 prospective cohort studies and 536,318 participants. The included studies were published between 1999 and 2010 and involved follow-ups of up to 20 years.  

After adjusting for geographic location, follow-up length, gender, or family history of type 2 diabetes, the combined studies indicated a significant (22%) reduction of risk of type 2 diabetes when comparing the highest magnesium intake group to the lowest. The inverse association was also more pronounced in overweight individuals, suggesting that high magnesium intake may have greater effects on improving insulin sensitivity in overweight individuals who are prone to insulin resistance. In the analysis of dose-response it was found that for every 100 mg/day increment in magnesium intake there was a 14% reduction in type 2 diabetes risk. 

The results of this study provide additional evidence that magnesium, in a dose-dependent manner, is associated with a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes.
