By Sergei VanBellinghen Knowledge is
the most powerful weapon you are ever going to have at your disposal. It is not
a gun, a sword or a bomb because the strongest instrument you will have if you
really want to make a change is what you learn. So, wherever you are right now
in life, I want you to burn that into your mind. But why is
knowledge such a dominant tool? And how can you use it to your advantage? Well,
knowledge is not only the most powerful weapon; it is also the key to success
and the most effective way to break the poverty cycle. And yes, it is a great
influential tool and it can change the world. However, education and learning

People are always going to have something to say. So if they are going to talk you might as well be living a life that makes you happy, right?
Change is constant, and yet, it can feel overwhelming at times. We are each unique in how we approach changes, how we experience transitions, and how we maintain balance. And it's not just external changes. Our energy influences our balance, too. So, here are 5 tips to enhance your understanding of balance and help you find it.
1. Balance comes from drawing on your full range of energies, not a 50/50 split of work/home activities.
