3 Gifts to Have a Sweeter Holiday Season

Posted on

For many of you, the holiday season is filled with anxiety, stress, financial worries, loneliness, family arguments, gift-giving concerns, many irritations (from flight delays to family squabbles) and many tasty temptations — mostly high-calorie and sugar-filled that you find hard to resist but that pack on the pounds, sap your energy and ruin your moods.
In fact, many people leave the holiday season feeling drained, deprived and 5 or more pounds heavier.
But I’m here to help you lose weight, get organized, become more organized, joyful, calm down, look younger, plan a vision for the future, attract abundance, and much more.
In other words, my goal is to bring you peace of mind, happiness, and super-simple cool tools to start using so you can have a Sweeter Holiday Season.
Therefore, it’s my pleasure to give you three special gifts.
All three gifts were the opening programs in last year’s much-acclaimed Sweeter Holiday Season, which featured a whopping 38 programs featuring a Who’s Who in the fields of health, wealth, fitness, personal empowerment, feng shui, organizing, happiness, Law of Attraction, and so much more.
So here are the gifts you’re getting now:
Your First Gift with Law of Attraction Guru John Assaraf
John_assaraf_150pxwidthFor your first gift, you’ll get inspired and educated by the remarkable John Assaraf, one of the stars of The Secret, founder of several multi-million dollar companies, a Spiritual Entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author.
In our special program, John — who is also a Law of Attraction expert and certified life coach — will help you ll discover:
* What’s blocking you from abundance.
* How the super-successful John didn’t come from a family of scholars or multimillionaires, but somehow he managed to learn about quantum physics and neuroscience and build several 5 multimillion dollar companies and write a couple of New York Times bestselling books along the way.
How oceans and stars are not the last frontier for mankind but the human brain is.
Why some people achieve enormous business and financial success while others don’t.
How there is an inner game to wealth and success and an outer game.
Why it’s so hard for people to change.
What are the exact steps people can take to change from the inside out so that their results are 5,10 20 times better in the next 12-24 months.
How some people settle for less than what they can achieve and how you can easily break free from that pattern, achieve huge transformations; and become incredibly confident.
How to find out about John’s super-sophisticated, amazing brain training program (which I love).
Your Second Gift with America’s Relaxation Expert Darrrin Zeer

From Size 14 to Size 10: Natalie Ledwell’s Amazing Mind Movies Story — Great Holiday Gift

Posted on

Wouldn’t it be great to just watch a short video and then watch your body shrink?
Are you frustrated that you haven’t lost weight or achieved your other dreams and goals yet even though you’ve been following the Law of Attraction?
You just have to learn some amazing stories here, because you can achieve remarkable successes using a revolutionary technique, called Mind Movies.
You see, a few days ago, for the finale of my Sweeter Holiday Summit — which presented a whopping 38+ programs — I had the pleasure of interviewing Natalie Ledwell, co-founder of Mind Movies 2.0, along with her business partner Ryan Higgins.
Natalie_ledwell In case you don’t know yet, a Mind Movie is a visualization tool…a short 3 minute video or digital vision board…a picture of your perfect life which is a combination of positive, present tense affirmations, reinforced with powerful photos and images and your most emotionally inspiring music.
You’ll learr how Natalie, a successful business woman, who has operated several different businesses with her husband, Glen Ledwell, has been working hard to make Mind Movies 2.0 a huge success, but in the process the weight piled on.
So what did she do? She created her own Mind Movie and watched the weight slide off.
In this Sweeter Holiday Summit finale program, which you can listen to below as my gift, you’ll discover:
* How Natalie used Mind Movies to go from what seemed to be an insurmountable goal – going from a dress size 14 to size 10 in 7 weeks.
* Why people who believe in the Law of Attraction don’t achieve their dreams.
* What led to the development of Mind Movies?
* Some amazing stories about people who’ve used Mind Movies.
* How Natalie’s successes led her to create an educational, easy-to-follow, effective success program called “7 Secrets to Happiness” to help anyone adopt right habits to achieve any goal they set.
What did you think of this program? Wasn’t Natalie inspiring? (FYI, please see Disclosures here.)

Hurrah! Computer Fixed!

Posted on

After a fabulous weekend getting inspired and exhilarated by the Hay House I Can Do It! Conference in Tampa and listening to such fabulous people as Dr. Wayne Dyer, Cheryl Richardson, Marianne Williamson, Robert Holden and Dr. Brian Weiss, I came back home to a tempermental computer.
Suffice it to say that a virus blasted my computer to smithereens.
Firefox wouldn’t stay open — it was shutting down often.
Sending emails was pretty much impossible.
In short, my computer was so sluggish, sputtering and malfunctioning that I was fearful it would just die in the middle of my Sweeter Holiday webinars/teleseminars.
So I had to make a tough decision. I had to cancel last night’s programs with Gift Guru Robyn Spizman and acclaimed hypnotherapist Steve G. Jones. Don’t worry: we’re rescheduling them. How awful it would have been if my computer had shut down in the middle of a program!
Heart-smiley-face-download For hours — I think it was five, maybe six or seven — my computer guy worked hard at fixing my computer.
He had to take out my hard drive, put in a new one, install a new Windows 7, move over all my data, including the book I’m writing (Beyond Sugar Shock for Hay House), set up my email account again, etc., etc.
Tadum! I’m now a very happy woman with a super fast computer that’s making it possible to get my work done so much quicker!
My computer guy says it’s now even better than now. And thankfully, I have lots more space, too, because I was running out of space, too!
So we’re back today for the Sweeter Holiday Summit. Join us tonight’s exciting programs at 6 pm Eastern with Steve G. Jones and 8 pm Eastern with Law of Attraction expert Eva Gregory.
Wondering what the Sweeter Holiday Summit is?
This event features 40 experts, whose mission is to help you thrive this holiday season.
SweeterHoliday_blog size 18 Sign up now at www.SweeterHoliday.com, and you’ll be able to listen to the fabulous program with the acclaimed FlyLady yesterday. (Thankfully, I was still able to hold that program before my computer got even worse. Stay tuned for a post about our fabulous webinar/teleseminar with her.)
Just sign up at www.SweeterHoliday.com, and you listen for FREE for 48 hours to all programs. If your schedule is hectic, don’t fret, because you can listen afterwards, at any time if you upgrade to the V.I.P. All Access Anytime Pass.
We’d love to have you join us. But hurry, becuase space is limited.
Please note that the figure is incorrect. We’re now having more than 30 experts — at present 40 Gurus in health, wealth, wellness, Feng shui, inner peace, finance, Law of Attraction, weight loss and more will help you to make this your best holiday season yet.

My ABC’s to Break Free of Sugar & Other Bad Habits (Babits™)

Posted on

Have you seen my video yet on YouTube, in which I shared My ABC’s to Break Free of Your Sugar Habit and Other Bad Habits?
Here’s a companion article to give you more information and tips to release your bad habits or what I call babits™.
My ABC’s to Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction & Other Bad Habits by Connie Bennett, CPC, CHHC
If you’re like most people, you’re often tempted by gorgeous, mouth-watering, nutrient-poor “treats”—dazzling donuts, colorful cereal or buttered bagels—and other bad habits such as excessive coffee-drinking, negative thinking, procrastinating and obsessive texting.
As I mentioned on my companion YouTube video, It’s certainly understandable if you feel tempted. Wherever you go and wherever you live, you’re inevitably bombarded by unhealthy foods, substances, thoughts and activities.
But I invite you to look inside and decide: Do you feel trapped or imprisoned by your sugar habit or other bad habit (what I call a babit™)?
And are you plagued by baffling health issues such as annoying weight gain, ferocious headaches or even type 2 diabetes?
I’m here to reassure you. You can escape from the prison of a bad habit.
In fact, I respectfully challenge you. Get out from under your sugar habit or other babits™ so that you can have a life that rocks!
You may be wondering WIFY (What’s In It For You?) if you overcome your bad habit. You can benefit in many ways!
You can get more energy, concentrate better, lose weight, become more productive, enjoy better relationships and so much more. And, as many clients have delightedly shared with me, if you cut out sugar and refined carbs, you even may be able to boost your libido!
So let me share my Double ABC’s to Break Free of Your Sugar Habit & Other Bad Habits (or what I call Babits™).(In my companion YouTube video, I share some of these tips. You’ll find more here.)
A is for Assume & Accept.
Just assume and accept that just about wherever you go, you’ll be tempted.
Your favorite aunt will nudge you to eat her favorite chocolate cake. You have to pass that vending machine at work. And no matter what, you’ll be taunted by candies galore while purchasing sundries at the local drug store.
But if you prepare for temptations—ones way more unhealthy than apples in the Garden of Eden—you can be prepared and always have healthy snacks on hand such as edamame (soy nuts), pumpkin seeds, hard-boiled eggs and sugar-free crackers or an apple (preferably organic) with almond butter.
