Re-awaken to Spring!

I love spring. Every year I feel like I've just emerged from a dark cocoon. This year is especially noteworthy for me on so many levels - physically, spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually. It's not that I was dead in these aspects, but the last year has had quite some challenges. Although some of the challenges have not fully played out, I emerge refreshed, with renewed optimism. And realistic optimism is a rare commodity, especially if you pay attention to the news. However, a lesson I have learned and cultivated is to consciously "play with" changing perspectives. It's not an easy thing to do. But if we want our creativity to flourish and produce, it is an essential skill/habit. An effective way to do that is by reading.

As you read our newsletter, I hope that for a few moments, that happens for you - you take a brief pause, and consider the meaning for you in your life. As a matter of fact, even our products and courses can do that for you. It's one thing to complain about what is not working in your life or job, but it is another thing to actually take action.

So, what action will you do to re-energize yourself and your brain this spring? I encourage you to read through the articles and consider their meaning. But most importantly, take some new action as a "symbolic gesture" for your spring renewal. Why not start with one of our online courses, or one of our audios?

Re-Awaken to Spring!

After years of experimenting with Binaural Beat Technology and its impact on brain wave patterning, we have revised the Creating Powerful Focus and Concentration Audio Program. Be sure to read the article on Binaural Beat Technology to learn about this amazing and powerful technology that can really help you start your day with clarity and focus. Says one user, "The best thing about it is the daily goal visualization. I'm getting so much more done with less stress."

Visit our new Speed Reading Tactics Sub-site - Get free tips on reading and Information Overload tips by e-mail, articles, test, free mini-lesson. Click Here.

Coming Soon! Keep your eyes peeled! The E-Book, "KEEP YOUR NOGGIN ROCKIN," a compendium of tips and tools for keeping your brain alive and well functioning.

Newsletter Reader Special - Save some $$$. Use Coupon Code SpringFever and save 10% on all courses and other newsletter product specials when you checkout. Be sure to enter the "SpringFever" coupon code and click on "Recalculate."

Announcement: All organizations, groups, and companies that book a live delivery of any of our Dynamic Reading Programs  will get up to 20 subscriptions to the online version as an added benefit to keep the skills fresh. This is a very effective blended learning approach.  Call Today! 1-800-852-9703.

We hope you find this issue helping you make your work easier and productive!

Best Regards,
President & CEO

Benefits of Binaural Beats
