More Influential than ever!
If you have found yourself with more birthdays behind you than in front of you, consider this: just because you may not move as quickly as you once did, does not mean
there are no contributions left for you to make to the world in which
you live. there is something you can do regardless of how agile or
infirm you are. You may find yourself with more time on your hands than
you have had in the past and that's what puts you in position to be
more influential now than ever. It may sound simple, but the secret of
this enormous influence is found in a four letter word: PRAY. You see,
when you pray for the people you love, you influence is not earthly and
fleeting; it is spiritual and infinite. As you beseech almighty God to
intervene in the lives of your loved ones, you can move heaven and earth
with you heartfelt cries. As you pray , you are sowing eternal seed
into the destinies of those for whom you intercede and that is the most
life-changing, effective influence of all. In addition to you
conversations with God, I encourage you to sit and talk with your
children, your grandchildren, people you have mentored and others who
would like to mine the gold inside of you. Share freely, for your
wisdom multiplies as you give it away. You see, there is something that
happens when you pray for people. You begin to care more and more,
even if you did not think it was possible to care any more deeply. And
then, when you are with those people, they can sense the depth of
interest you have in their lives. Then they want to reach into your
should and learn what you know. They want to be for others the kind of
friend or relative you are to them. And the cycle of influence
| 7 Tricks to Make Your Hair Look Thicker ...
If your hair is
thin at the crown but still thick in front, try bangs to create a fuller
look. To go a step further, take a slice of hair underneath the bangs
and color it two shades darker than the rest of your hair color. When
you bring the top layer of fringe down over it, your bangs will look
thicker because of the deeper color underneath.
Ask your stylist to
cut the under-layer of your hair half an inch shorter than the top
layer. This will add fullness. Never let anyone use a razor, though,
because that can create frayed ends that make your hair look wispier. To
give heft to fine or thin hair, keep ends blunt.
the thickness of each strand," "It swells the hair shaft, which makes
your hair look and feel fuller." Another reason you might want to
highlight: When your hair color has dimension (a mix of shades), it
creates the illusion of density. Also, keep in mind that your hair color
should match the color of your scalp as closely as possible if you want
to camouflage a wide part.
Keep Your Hair Above Shoulder Length"Once it hits the tops of your shoulders, your hair breaks up and looks thinner," it's shorter, it will appear thicker.
Mousse It Up
Mousse gives roots a
boost and creates volume without stickiness. Avoid creams and heavy
gels, which weigh hair down. (Spray gels can effectively add some
height, when used in moderation.) Work the mousse into damp hair and
comb through so all of the strands are coated.
If your hair is
full at the crown, but wispy from the mid-length to ends, clip-in hair
extensions can give you a lush style in minutes. Today's synthetic
versions look completely natural.
Don't subject your
hair to more wear and tear than necessary-let it air-dry 80 percent,
then use a round brush to lift the roots and smooth the ends. And don't
part your hair where you normally do before you blow-dry, "It will wind
up flat along the part, which is exactly where you want some height."
Instead, part your hair on the opposite side. When you're done
blow-drying, flip it back and you'll have gorgeous volume.
Eating Right for the Body's
hair requires nourishment from the inside to maintain its health. A
high consumption of animal fats, vitamin a, or rapid weight loss reduces
the amino acids and vitamins needed in hair growth. Poor nutrients,
limiting food intake, and liquid protein diets can cause hair loss.
Deficiencies in biotin, iron, protein and zinc are particularly damaging
to healthy hair growth. Toxicity of vitamins and mineral can cause hair
loss. The best diet for the individual body is your blood type. Type O-
best with animal proteins and unfavorable with diary products, Type A -
vegetarian diet and fresh pure organic foods, Type B- strong immune
system tolerant digestive system and avoid chicken replace with goat or
lamb, Type AB- Biologically complex avoid caffeine alcohol and eat
seafood, dairy and green vegetables.
blood type also determines what type of biochemistry our digestive
systems are made of. "Your blood type is a powerful genetic fingerprint
that identifies you as surely as your DNA". There are four blood type
groups: O, A, B, and AB. The majority of people are Blood Type O. Next
comes Blood Type A, then Blood Type B; and, Blood Type AB is very rare
and has only been around for about 1000 years. Less than 5% of the
world's population has Blood Type AB. Some people can eat a variety of
foods with no problems, while others suffer from gas, bloating,
indigestion and heartburn. The reason for this is that people with
different blood types cannot eat or digest the same foods equally.
