5 Step Plan of Mastery

During the Prehistoric Age, the Crocodiles roamed the Earth side by side with their cousins the Dinosaurs. They shared the same hunting grounds and experienced the same dynamically changing environment.

Today, Crocodiles are still alive upon the Earth…adapting and thriving!

When was the last time you saw a Dinosaur alive?

A Crocodile is one of the world’s greatest survivors! It has outlived the dinosaur and is incredibly flexible, thus able to thrive in a changing world. In this reporter’s opinion, the single most significant reason for the crocodile’s success is the strategic approach it has to life’s circumstances.

Emergency Response Teams, Genuine Masters of the Martial Arts, Firefighters, SWAT Teams etc. are all trained to follow the same strategy as the Crocodile, especially when confronted with a dangerous, or a potentially dangerous …

Eradicating Worry

Here are some facts about worry:

It turned out to be a sensitive subject. I could feel his hesitation, trying to share what he felt. When it finally came out, I was a bit shocked. He had beliefs that were completely contrary to my own experiences and those of my family. He was there to tell me that the choices we had made were wrong.
