I can remember attempting to be strong and reassure my fiancee' that Lifebook was going to be something amazing; yet I had no idea what it really was. I was out on a limb. What I did know, was I pushed all my chips in to be part of a massive project for my career. I was under the impression that Lifebook would be a nice little off shoot of this project. It took only a couple weeks after being in the lounge to quickly realize that Lifebook was the foundation of the major project I pushed my chips in for. I felt I had a clear vision of where I wanted to go in most areas of my life, yet, my purpose and strategies were beyond unclear. After 4 days of what most of you know to be a mindspin, I was at my best! I felt CRYSTAL clear on my vision and felt I could breath fire with the strategies written in front of me. My fiancee pulled out amazing things too that she had no idea where crushing her path to the lifestyle we both wanted. We have been working so diligently over the past 10 weeks implementing things on multiple levels.

Written by Lifebook Member Nicholas Araza There are so many ways to work out these days; it can be hard to choose. Some regimens focus on calorie burning, some focus on endurance, some gyms just let you go at it alone with no guidance and on the other spectrum others supervise you’re every move. With so many ways to work out, what should we do? As always, and no surprise to the Lifebook crew, that depends on what our goals are. My fitness journey began with being strong like Ah-nold, how I looked and having “big guns” as my motivation, but after much pain, injury and little result, I started asking better questions.  I started asking “how should I exercise to get healthier and feel better.” Much to my surprise the answer to those question made the BIGGEST change in my health AND my physique and has done so for thousands of others. As simple as this is, healthier people look better, feel better and are more fit.  But how do we define fitness and how can we work out to feel better? Enter CrossFit...

You might already know about Dr. Masaru Emoto, the Japanese “scientist” who magically turns normal rice into gross rice, simply by yelling at it. But for the uninitiated, Dr. Emoto gained international fame from the film What the Bleep Do We Know?!, where he studied the affects of conscious intention on water molecules. During his experiment, Dr. Emoto separated water into one hundred petri dishes and assigned each dish a fate: good or bad. He then rallied a group of approximately 2,000 people in Tokyo to focus positive or negative intentions on the water samples. The good water was blessed and praised, and the bad water was scolded with aggression. Each petri dish was then frozen, allegedly under the same conditions. When the frozen water was viewed under a microscope, the water which had been praised and valued had rearranged itself into beautiful crystalline structures. The “negative” water was deformed, showing a lack of symmetry and more overall jaggedness and darkness.

When I attended my Lifebook session, I had vague ideas about what to expect. As I went through the week, it became clear this was exactly what I needed in my life. I had many breakthroughs... some I didn't even realize I needed! These shifts in thinking have made all the difference in the past 6 weeks. I will never be the same. I am happier, healthier, more loving and more loved. I am more deeply connected with myself and others around me. I am richer, wealthier and a more patient and fun parent. I have done numerous things with relative ease that I thought would always be a struggle for me. One aspect I have struggled with for years lives in the Emotional Category. I didn't even know how to put it into words before Lifebook, but I can now... I didn't have the skills to get through frustrations successfully. When things would happen in our family dynamic that brought disappointment and resentment, I would let it build inside of me. I knew this wasn't leading to my happiness and I knew it wasn't healthy. In fact, I knew that over the years as these feelings built up, it could be devastating to my family and my health. Then, [Lifebook's] Emotional Category presentation changed the course of my life.

We’re all aware of the groundbreaking evidence neuroscientists and physiologists have been gathering on the incredibly beneficial relationship between exercise and brainpower. But new findings are making it clear that this isn’t just A relationship - it’s THE relationship… And it could be the key to fully unlocking your intellectual potential. In just the past few months, using sophisticated technologies to examine the inner workings of neurons and the makeup of brain matter, scientists have discovered that exercise helps to literally BUILD a brain that resists physical shrinkage and enhance cognitive flexibility, even with age.

It’s becoming clear that EXERCISE does more to boost thinking than THINKING does.

How can exercising build brainpower in ways that thinking can’t?
