Have you been swallowed by a dragon?

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014 by Pete Bissonette
Last summer 23 people realized they had been swallowed by a dragon. They knew they could choose how their lives go, but knowing it and doing it proved challenging. Trying to create the ideal life only showed the gap between knowing and doing. It was absolutely clear that no one was responsible for any limitation […]

How to Never Give up on your Goals

Friday, August 30th, 2013 by Pete Bissonette
When things get hard at home, at work or somewhere in between, you may be tempted to throw in the towel, admit your defeat and just give up. At times, this can certainly seem like the easier way out — getting a divorce rather than trying to resolve deep-seated issues, not going to the gym […]

Ten Tips to Find Inner Peace

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013 by Pete Bissonette
It goes without saying that life can be hectic. In fact, more than one-quarter of women and 21 percent of men ALWAYS feel rushed (not to mention 36 percent of moms and 25 percent of dads), according to a Pew Research Center poll. Perhaps you fall into this ‘harried’ group, and perhaps you have noticed […]

Eight Tips on How to Make Others Feel Good

Monday, August 26th, 2013 by Pete Bissonette
Many of us barrel through our days without so much as a moment to stop and relax. And during this 24-hour rat race, many of us rarely stop to think about how to make ourselves feel good, let alone how to make others feel good. But focusing on the latter is actually an unbeatable strategy […]

Doing Too Much: How to Overcome Pressures of Life

Friday, August 23rd, 2013 by Pete Bissonette
Is the first thought that pops into your head when you wake up in the morning how you’ll brace yourself for another whirlwind day? If so, you’re not alone. Countless numbers of Americans are doing way too much: too much work, too many activities, and too many obligations. And they’re not taking the time to […]

Follow Your Heart

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013 by Pete Bissonette
You know how it feels when you truly follow your heart. Every inch of your body — the very fabric of your soul — feels alive. And even if your head is telling you “no”, you do it anyway because something bigger, something more primal, is telling you “yes”. “You know when you are following […]

Changing Bad Habits

Monday, August 19th, 2013 by Pete Bissonette
Habits are those routine things that we do every day, often without thinking twice about them. Brushing your teeth in the morning, putting on your seat belt when you get in a car, and grabbing your purse or wallet before you head out the door are all ‘habits.’ What changes a habit into a bad […]

The Process of Change

Thursday, May 16th, 2013 by Paul Scheele
Ultimate You Retreat with Paul R. Scheele August 5-9, 2013 This retreat is not going to be the typical self-improvement event where you learn “daily practices” that you should do every day the rest of your life such as standing in front of the mirror and reciting affirmations as you brush your teeth… or reading […]

Living the Law of Attraction

Friday, March 8th, 2013 by Paul Scheele
As you experience life each day, ask these questions. How can I get better at living my life today? How can I express greater joy, greater personal power, and creativity? Learning to attract successful people who already do what you want to do is extremely beneficial. When you interact with these people, you develop the […]

The Power of Placebos

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013 by Paul Scheele
Has mind-body medicine finally gone mainstream? Almost half of Chicago physicians of internal medicine responding to a study on placebos reported using them as “therapeutic” tools in their clinical practice. And 96 percent of the physicians said they believe placebos can benefit patients, the study reported. A placebo is an inactive substance containing no medication […]

Turn anxiety into energy

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013 by Paul Scheele
The American Psychological Association says 80% of us have reported heightened stress about economic security.  No kidding! The good news is that it is fairly easy to get this stress and anxiety under control. Anxieties are always about future events or situations where your brain wants to avoid the physical or emotional discomfort of possible […]

Listen to your body signals & lose weight

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013 by Paul Scheele
Weight problems are associated with inadequate discrimination of body signals. Without clear body communications, weight problems become compounded when you eat in an attempt to cope with stress and nutritional imbalances. Years of dysfunctional coping with poor eating choices can become a your preferred eating habits. Fortunately, you can create a new relationship between yourself […]

Making the World a Better Place

Saturday, October 6th, 2012 by Paul Scheele
Most of us know the value of clearly defining our goals for the success and fulfillment we want to achieve in our careers, relationships, health, and personal growth. Yet there’s another area of goal setting we sometimes overlook—our legacy. Your legacy goal is one that defines the kind of lasting contribution you want to make […]

Vulnerability Propels Success

Thursday, October 4th, 2012 by Paul Scheele
When you meet people who are extremely successful in life, one thing you may not notice is their vulnerability. Yet that trait likely propelled their success. Most people who have achieved the highest level of success not only had a clearly defined vision of what they wanted to create, but they were not afraid to […]

Embody Your Dreams

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 by Paul Scheele
Intention is a powerful force. Fueled by imagination, it brings to life the dreams of champion athletes and best-selling authors alike. Tara Lipinski was just six years old when she decided to be a figure skater while watching the Olympics on TV. When her mother saw Tara standing on a chair and asked what she […]

Transform your gray matter through meditation

Friday, September 14th, 2012 by Pete Bissonette
If you meditate, you may know firsthand how it can calm the mind and body, reduce stress and anxiety, enhance self-awareness, and even improve memory. But did you know that meditating can actually change the density of grey matter in areas of your brain that correlate with these beneficial effects—in just eight weeks? That’s what […]

Should you meditate?

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012 by Pete Bissonette
If you meditate regularly, you’re likely well aware of its many benefits. But if this mind-body practice is new to you, you might wonder whether something so seemingly simple can actually reduce your level of stress… improve sleep… enhance focus and concentration… even increase longevity. Should you meditate? This scientific research may lead you to […]

Holding your light for others

Thursday, August 30th, 2012 by Marie Diamond
The Law of Attraction was at work on a grand scale during the London Olympics. Although the flame has extinguished, the games remain a wonderful expression of how we hold our light for others and collectively make our world a better place. In ancient times the flaming torch was more than a symbol of peace […]

Mastery Acceleration

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012 by Pete Bissonette
You may have heard that masters aren’t made overnight. This is true. Stevie Ray Vaughan, often considered one of the most incredible guitarists in rock history, famously practiced so often that his fingers would bleed. And athlete Shaun Palmer, on his way to winning competitions in mountain biking, snowboarding, and snowmobiling, has broken nearly every […]

The Amazing Power of Self-Esteem

Saturday, June 16th, 2012 by Matt McManus
According to a leading researcher of self-esteem, the self-image evolved as a way to compare oneself to others. Because there is always someone in the world who is better, smarter, faster, or richer, the process of self-imaging is almost always devastating to self-esteem. You’ve heard the old phrase, “the rat race”, or “keeping up with […]

Hardwiring Amazing Self-Discipline

Thursday, June 14th, 2012 by Matt McManus
Remaining disciplined is a constant battle that we all face on a day-to-day basis. Whether it is exercising, eating well, keeping up with valued relationships, or simply remaining efficient in responding to emails; we are all plagued by the daunting (and often formidable) task of self-discipline. Quite simply, it is often easier not to do […]

Creating positive new results

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012 by Paul Scheele
Anything less than high self-esteem is a distortion of who you are: a person of infinite worth. Your self-esteem may have been shaped by mistaken judgments you have accepted from yourself or others. Creating positive new results in your life is easier when you value and recognize the magnificent gifts you have as a human […]

Going on automatic pilot

Monday, June 4th, 2012 by Paul Scheele

The power of beliefs

Friday, June 1st, 2012 by Paul Scheele
A self-fulfilling prophecy is a belief that comes to pass. Beliefs establish your automatic seeing, thinking, feeling, and behaving, and in turn, determine the results you create.  Strengthening your beliefs about your abilities is key in getting the most from life. Beliefs about what you are capable of accomplishing take hold in your life through […]

The secret to getting things done

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012 by Pete Bissonette
Studies show that people who are motivated by results are more likely to succeed than those who are motivated by activities. The motivation to achieve a desired result helps overcome any unpleasant tasks that may have to be performed. This forms the basis of Day 1 of the upcoming free online festival called Ultimate You […]

For teachers, trainers, presenters, and learners

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011 by Paul Scheele
You may have heard me say many times: the brain is a natural accelerated learning device. The combination of your body/mind/brain makes you the perfect learning organism. Your ability to acquire and creatively use information is unlimited. But for most people traditional education confuses our fabulous personal resources. It more or less turns us into […]

Turn your mind into an ally

Friday, February 11th, 2011 by Pete Bissonette
As you’ve no doubt seen, you mind can be robotic and reactive, getting in the way of what you want in your life. It is not necessarily a saboteur, although it might seem like it. It is more that it is doing the best it can, given the mixed input its received all the way […]

Is he right for her? Am I safe here?

Monday, January 31st, 2011 by Pete Bissonette
Earlier this month at a friend’s wedding I questioned whether her intended was right for her. I got the answer when I read their auras. Both had beautiful auras as I watched them during the sunset ceremony on a beach in Barbados. They reached toward each other and seemed to blend together. During the vows […]

Your Spiritual Code and the Seven Rays

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010 by Pete Bissonette
We all fall within seven spiritual codes, or archetypes, or vibrational levels, that steer our lives from deep within.  They are also called the Seven Rays. It is all a powerful metaphor, whereupon after studying it, I’ve come to believe there is a lot more to it. When you let your ego—your mind—run the show, […]
