We hear so much today about the obesity crisis facing America. Young and old alike seem to be increasing their physical size much faster than their financial size! The cost of the obesity is real both in terms of the damage it does to the individual, and the damage it does to society. Are there new ideas we really should consider?
As I’ve gone through the most difficult times in my life, to be very honest and open with you, there were many times that I cried out to God asking the question “What do you want with me?” Sometimes, we just don’t know. It’s in those hours when I felt the pain of not feeling purpose and direction and not knowing, that God’s answer to me was “I want it all!” I’d like to explore what that means with you today.
Wow, I never thought I’d be writing about teeth, gums and dental care, but on the physical path, believe it or not, your teeth are an important part of your life! Recent studies show that there are some 50 million Americans who don’t receive adequate dental care, and we’re something like 10,000 dental care providers short. Well, why does this matter and what are we to do about it?
With all the turmoil taking place in recent days, and over $1 Trillion taken out of the 401(k) values during the past week, I thought it relevant to talk about money and the emotional path. Why? Because I know that many of you are struggling and concerned, if not worried, about what your financial future holds. This becomes much more than about money, it can hit to the heart of a person.
Well, there you have it! For the first time in our nation’s history, a major rating agency has told the world that our nation may not be reliable to repay its debts and may not be the safest place to put your money. Really, is that really what was said? Before we let our emotions get the better of us, let’s take a deeper look at this seemingly seismic event, and remember that The Steve Beaman Group is all about Real Help, for Real People.
The question as I write today’s SBG-Cast on the Intellectual Path is who is credited with saying that ominous phrase? I’ll answer it later, but today, we’re going to take another look at the critical importance of somehow getting American’s to think before they speak and act.
Clearly, a key concern on the Physical Path is our ability to maintain our weight, or even lose it. I’ve written about various exercise regimes, but today, I want to look at a very basic concept; metabolism. What is this, and why does it matter so much? How can I measure my base metabolism rate and how can I improve it?
I’ve written a more detailed account of this topic for my E-Book, but given the challenges and hurdles our nation seems to be increasingly encountering, I wanted to write today’s SBG-Cast as a reminder of the importance of attitude, and highlight a few of the keys that winners employ to keep their attitudes up.
Most of us follow the nightly news closely enough to know that Monday August 1st, 2011, Congress is voting on a compromise package to extend the debt limit of the United States and stave off what could be a real disaster. Now, for the millionth time, I’ll say that the Steve Beaman Group is not about politics and therefore I don’t want to make value judgments about this deal. That’s for you. But I do want to provide you facts on this and look at how it affects you and your financial path.
I hear so many misconceptions about Christianity today. I watch people like Joel Osteen and even Billy Graham back down to Larry King when he asks “Do you think I’ll be condemned just because I don’t believe in Jesus?” And to that question both of these esteemed preachers responded “That’s for God to judge, not me”. They’re afraid, as are many Christians that they’ll be labeled as “judgmental” and “exclusive”. But what do the Scriptures say?
