Here is by far one of the best trainings I’ve ever experienced in my 20 years of being associated with Personal Growth.
Do you have any current or past “perceived limitations” that have held you back? I know that I have ever since I was small and I was told that I wasn’t fast enough or smart enough it all went in my mind and stayed there and it limited in the things that I would try to do in life. I would automatically think that I couldn’t do certain things without even trying them because of past mental programming. How sad that because of these perceived limitations I gave up on myself…I never even tried to see if these limitations were true or not. Here is a powerful video from Marc Accetta that shows you how these limitations are affecting your everyday life.
Just wrapped up helping out a friend of mine over the weekend with his event and I had a number of people come up and ask where they could get my playlist of songs that I use at events. Where here it is…I personally use Spotify, it’s a great music service that can be used both with a free membership & paid membership if you want to create your own playlists. However with the free playlists you’ll be able to see any and all of the playlists that are created by users such as myself.
- Download Spotify to your Apple or Android device.
- Search “monicoperez”
- Click Follow & there you have it….
Here is my most requested playlist…make sure to follow me on Spotify for more playlist.
About a week ago we visited Life Church in Mustang, Oklahoma and I was introduced to Pastor Craig Groeschel who was talking about his most recent book Divine Direction. Well I haven’t had time to dive into the book but I was able to connect and watch some of the video series that follow the book and it’s incredible stuff. I figured I’d share it with you and hope that it can serve you as it is serving me.
“I say to the Lord, “You are my place of safety, my fortress. My God, I trust in you.””

Do you know how beneficial almonds are for your health?
Almonds are one of my favorite nuts. Anytime that I can grab a handful that aren’t covered in salt or any other type of flavors I try to do so. Here are some powerful benefits that this small superfood can punch into your daily life.
9 Health Benefits of Almonds:
1. They reduce heart attack risk.
Those who consume nuts five times a week have about a 50 percent reduction in risk of heart attack according to the Loma Linda School of Public Health.
2. They lower “bad” cholesterol.
Almonds added to the diet have a favorable effect on blood cholesterol levels, according to a clinical study by Dr. Gene Spiller, Director of the Health Research and Studies Center, Inc.
3. They protects artery walls from damage.
It was found that the flavonoids in almond skins work in synergy with the vitamin E, thus reducing the risk of heart disease (Research at Tufts University).
4. Almonds help build strong bones and teeth.
The phosphorus in almonds helps make this possible.
5. They provide healthy fats and aid in weight loss:
- Although nuts are high in fat, frequent nut eaters are thinner on average than those who almost never consume nuts. (Data from the Nurses’ Health Study)
- Those who ate nuts at least two times per week were 31 percent less likely to gain weight than were those who never or seldom ate them in a study involving 8,865 adults. (WHFood’s article on almonds)
6. Almonds lower the rise in blood sugar and insulin after meals.
7. They help provide good brain function.
Almonds contain riboflavin and L-carnitine, nutrients that boost brain activity and may also reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
8. They nourish the nervous system.
According to Ayurveda, almonds help increase high intellectual level and longevity.
9. They alkalize the body.
Almonds are the only nut and one of the few proteins that are alkaline forming. When your body is not alkaline enough, you risk osteoporosis, poor immune function, low energy and weight gain.
- Almonds are 13 percent protein.
- One ounce (or about 23 almonds) is an excellent source of vitamin E, magnesium, fiber and protein.
- Almonds are filled with minerals such as magnesium, copper, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and iron, and also B vitamins.
- A one-ounce serving of almonds contains about the same amount of antioxidants as a serving of broccoli.
- Almonds are one of the best whole food sources of vitamin E, with about one third of the daily value per ounce.
- Heart-healthy with monounsaturated fat, almonds are also cholesterol-free.
- One-quarter cup of almonds contains about 18 grams of fat, of which 11 grams are heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.
- 20-25 almonds contain as much calcium as 1/4 cup of milk.
