Create Impulses to Buy

July 26th, 2012 — 12:05pm

Profit centers work best when based on the impulse buying style. The impulse buying style simply means the member responds to certain stimuli and makes a buying decision he or she did not intend.

December 9th, 2011 — 6:14am

The answer to this question, in part, has to do with our own lives. If we rarely take time to nurture our own spirits, than it is unlikely that we’ll be able to pass this skill on to our children. Many parents neglect the spiritual practices that they had developed once the hectic pace of raising a family kicks in. The objective should be to continue and not abandon the inner work that we did on ourselves before we had children. If anything, our inner focus should be increased.

Imagine a culture that valued a child’s inner life as much as their outer accomplishments. Imagine rewarding our children with trophies, first place ribbons, and end of season picnics for simply acquiring greater self awareness.

Traumatic events in life happen without warning. Lives are turned upside down in an irreversible disastrous moment. From that moment on comes the critical journey of healing.

Trauma refers to situations in which one is rendered powerless and great danger is involved. Any event that overtakes a human being’s ability to cope can leave its victim in a state of shock. There are expected losses in life such as death or loss of a job. A true example of trauma would be the loss of several family members or friends in an accident or a natural disaster.
