it. Our expectations are set at the level where we want this immediate
gratification, that we deserve to have it Read More...
Dominik Lipinski, Love Yourself First Very often I have a feeling, that one thing is completely neglected
by so many people. Also by those people who are involved with personal

Bruce Kimball, Newsflash: Starving Won’t Work! With fad diets out there telling us over and over again that to
lose weight we need to deprive ourselves, it’s no wonder that so many
people think that starvation is the best diet tool of all. I mean,

Listen to this issue's Podcast:
Each week Peter Shepherd produces an audio version of the Cultivate Life! Magazine,
including several selected articles. Our first author this week, Dominik Lipinski looks at self love. Very often people seek some self-growth magic pills, or hyper-modern coaching methods, when they don't have a healthy base for personal growth. Loving yourself is such a base. Maurine Patten then describes the three conditions that are necessary to create a meaningful life. Finally this week, Chuck Gallozzi explains how we gain control over our lives by self-leadership, which is nothing less than the freedom to create the lives we wish to have.
