Dynamic Youth – June 2015 – Biodiversity - Save Kiwi Month: Where to Spot Kiwi

If you are in the right place on a moonless night, you might be fortunate enough just after sunset or before dawn to hear a wild kiwi call. Nocturnal and elusive, the flightless kiwi is our national icon, yet many of us know precious little about the plucky little bird.
There are 70,000 kiwi, across five species, in the wild but we lose up to 27 each week mainly because of predators such as rats, stoats and weasels, possums, cats and dogs. A single roaming dog can destroy an entire regional kiwi population in just days.
This means if left to fend for themselves, kiwi - which just 100 years ago numbered in the millions - could become extinct in a couple generations.

Dynamic Youth – June 2015 – Self Development - This Hormone May Be Your Secret to Aging Well

Getting older is often considered a disease, rather than a normal physiological process in the body. It is true that the levels of hormones, enzymes, and other substances in the body decline with age, and that these can lead to a host of health issues: poor vision, reduced hearing, forgetfulness, arthritis and osteoporosis.
However, every older adult is different. The body is an amazing machine, and how well one ages is determined in large part by nutrition, exercise and sleep. While one octogenarian may use a walker to get around, another may be preparing for a marathon.

Dynamic Youth – June 2015 – Humor – Wit and Wisdom

What You Have Done?
A college student at a recent college football game challenged a senior citizen sitting next to him, saying it was impossible for their generation to understand this:
"You grew up in a different world," the student said, loud enough for the whole crowd to hear. "Today we have television, jet planes, space travel, man has walked on the Moon, our spaceships have visited Mars, we even have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed processing ... and uh ....."
Taking advantage of a pause in the student's litany, the senior citizen said, "You're right. We did not have those things when we were young; so we invented them, you little twit! What are *you* doing for the next generation?"

About one in nine people globally still suffer from hunger with the majority of the hungry living in Africa and Asia. The world's forests have great potential to improve their nutrition and ensure their livelihoods. In fact, forests and forestry are essential to achieve food security as the limits of boosting agricultural production are becoming increasingly clear.

Dynamic Youth – June 2015 – International Affairs - A New Cold War Is Brewing in the Pacific

Is a new Cold War brewing in the Pacific between China and the U.S. with Japan playing a front line role?
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit to Washington last week alarmingly pushed developments in that direction. In a blog he adapted from his well-received speech to the U.S. Congress, Abe proposes that the two democratic post-WWII allies join in a "seamless" strategic effort "to spread and nurture our shared values" and "stick to the path" that "won the Cold War" -- and, in so many words not spoken, to contain China.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, left, and Chinese President Xi Jinping wave to journalists before they hold a meeting in Xian, Shaanxi province, China, May 14, 2015.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has welcomed Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to his family's ancestral hometown for a visit expected to further boost diplomatic and economic ties.
The meeting Thursday in Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi province, is seen as a gesture of goodwill between the two Asian giants who have been dealing with a long-standing border dispute. It is the first time President Xi has hosted a foreign leader in his family's hometown and it is rare for Chinese leaders to welcome visitors outside Beijing.

Unrest in Burundi sends thousands fleeing, threatening years of refugee gains - UN agency
8 May 2015 – The eruption of pre-election violence in Burundi last month has seen over 50,000 people flee to neighboring countries and threatens to undo some of the most promising developments in recent refugee history in Africa, the United Nations body tasked with protecting displaced people said in Geneva today.
"Many of these have crossed into Rwanda (25,004), but over the last week we have also seen a sharp increase in people seeking asylum in Tanzania (17,696) after entry restrictions there were lifted," said, Adrian Edwards, spokesperson for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), briefing journalists in Geneva..

At a youthful 1,400 years, Islam is the youngest of the world's major religions — and it is on track to be the largest sometime this century.
That is the prediction from demographers at the Pew Research Center who say high fertility rates among Muslim women and a youth bulge in the faith are fueling its growth.

Dynamic Youth – June 2015 – Self Development - Lunar Letter

SELFDEVELOPMENT>> Rob McBride’s Lunar Letter

We tend to focus on objectives, like buying a car or getting a promotion.  The journey toward any objective requires completing certain tasks.  Not all are pleasurable and some are downright objectionable, but they are necessary to get where we want to go.  We can see each thing we need to do as an obstacle to be overcome or as a bridge to take us to the other side.
Saving money for a car doesn’t tend to be easy.  While our friends go out partying, instead we stay home to save money.  To get a promotion, we may need to work extra hours or perhaps even weekends.  Some people do not have the discipline required to save money to buy a car or work hard to get a promotion.

Dynamic Youth – June 2015 – Self Development - 3 Types Of People You Should Avoid In Life

SELFDEVELOPMENT>> Steven Bancarz

Relationships are arguably the most important part of life.  Our experience is influenced, impacted by, and shaped by our interactions with other people.  The development of our minds and souls depend on the people we surround ourselves with in this life.
There are many different friend archetypes that seem to be universal in the human journey, and these archetypes appear over and over in our lives.  For example, there is the friend that is the good listener.  The friend that always sees the bright side.  The friend that is never afraid to tell you the truth.  The list goes on and on.  But for every beneficial archetypal personality, there is also a negative archetypal personality that we have to keep an eye out for.

Dynamic Youth – June 2015 – Self Development - 5 Choices That Are Vital to Your Success & Happiness

SELFDEVELOPMENT>> Alan Fox

Over the course of my life, I’ve built several careers: I’ve been an accountant, I’ve started my own law firm, I’ve created a commercial real estate business, and, most recently, I’ve embarked on a career as a writer.
Throughout all this, I’ve found that success doesn’t come by accident. Sure, sometimes exciting and unexpected things happen to us, but most of all, we make things happen. Ultimately, success comes from learning and developing certain qualities — seeds that grow into a fulfilling life and career.
I’ve observed some of these particular characteristics (or lack thereof) in myself, and also in others — those who’ve worked for me and those I’ve collaborated with over the years. And I’ve always tried to take note of which qualities serve me, and which ones don’t, on the pathway to success.

SELFDEVELOPMENT>>Lloyd Burnett

For a long time, I did not know my purpose. I knew I wanted something more from life, but I was not sure what, and I was struggling. The worst part was that this uncertainty bred further self-doubt, which then bred further uncertainty.
I watched so many others reaching their potential, changing the world, and experiencing great financial reward. This hurt because I felt blocked, poor, and ready to give up.
Then one day it became obvious that all of the "negative" things I was experiencing were actually a set of clear signs that I was beginning to wake up to a big, important change. I was preparing myself to manifest my purpose, rather than moving further away from it.
Here are five clear signs that you are in the process of opening your eyes to your purpose, too.

SELFDEVELOPMENT>> Amateo Ra

Whether you fully believe in it or not, all humans can be subjected and influenced by negative energy. If you are highly-sensitive, an empath or regularly surrounded by a lot of people, you may find yourself even more susceptible. So how do we protect ourselves from these energies? What are they really? This is a blog to answer that question and give you exactly what you need to know.
Truthfully, even writing an article on this subject matter is tricky. Why? Well, I believe the more awareness and attention that you give negative energies or entities, the more power they have over you and to influence your life. I regularly meet people who believe that part of their Spiritual mission is to constantly be protecting themselves from negative energy, and I from my years of study I don’t subscribe to that belief system.

Dynamic Youth – June 2015 – Self Development - 9 Tips to Boost Your Happiness

SELFDEVELOPMENT>> Dr. Kellyann Petrucci

Before the late 1980s, if you’d asked average Americans what serotonin was, they might have just stared back at you blankly. But then something big happened in January 1988 that turned serotonin into a household word:
The introduction of Prozac.
It took just two years for Prozac to become the most prescribed medication in the US.
Prozac introduced a new class of antidepressants called selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs). This got us talking more openly about depression (although we still have a long way to go!) and also got everyone familiar with serotonin as the “feel-good hormone.” Many people who have suffered from debilitating depression swear that SSRIs gave them their life back.

After being diagnosed with generalized anxiety and panic disorder a few years ago, my life became a roller coaster ride filled with drug-induced highs and depressive lows.
I developed a life-threatening addiction to my anxiety medication and then survived an accidental overdose. This led me to do an entire lifestyle overhaul to overcome my addictions and manage my anxiety.
My doctor insisted that I’d need to be on medication for the rest of my life due to the severity of my disorder. However, with time, faith and a lot of trial and error, I managed to successfully rid my life of all medications, I stopped smoking and learned how to control my anxiety.

SELFDEVELOPMENT>> Dr. Danielle Dowling

With endless work deadlines, social engagements, family responsibilities and the hope for some self-care, it can feel like we are in a constant battle with time.
Learning to say no more often just might be the solution. Appreciating your need for some "me time" is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. When we can simply pause, we restore, realign, recalibrate.
And sometimes, we have to sacrifice the part of us that wants to please others in order to find time for recharging. In other words: we have to say no. Here are 10 reasons to embrace the power of saying no (and some tips for how to say it with kindness and integrity).

Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.” ~ Stacey Charter

You might assume that humans buy products because of what they are, but the truth is that we often buy things because of where they are. For example, items on store shelves that are at eye level tend to be purchased more than items on less visible shelves.

My friend died recently.
I saw him just a few hours before he died too. He stopped by my office as he had done numerous times before to say hello. I’d seen him go through various challenges and come out better. His life was great, and the future looked bright. And I was happy for him because he had worked so hard to get to this place.
My friend died that night in a freak accident.
I was stunned. Why him? Why now when he had so much to live for?
As I was dealing with the sadness and shock of this sudden loss, I remembered the gift of life and the precious few moments we had with each other.
I hope these reminders will help you treasure each moment with yourself and with others:

Dynamic Youth – June 2015 – Self Development - How to Live More Fearlessly By Connecting With Your Highest Self

SELFDEVELOPMENT>> Jennie Lee

One of the most universal human fears is the fear of dying. It is instinctual to act in ways that preserve life and rightly so, for we are not meant to seek death.
However fear of dying, which is as much a part of life as being born, limits our ability to live life to the fullest. And according to yoga philosophy, it is an avoidance of truth. In the classic yogic text the Bhagavad Gita, Paramahansa Yogananda translates, “For that which is born must die, and that which is dead must be born again. Why then shouldst thou grieve about the unavoidable?”

Though A P Herbert makes a special mention of Englishmen, his statement is applicable to all human beings.
All of us are always preparing for something in life. It may be a job, or a thirst for knowledge, or a desire for attaining something, or a longing for some entertainment, or a search for fulfillment, or anyone of the countless urges that keeps on nudging us ahead to do something. We are pulled and pushed by endless welter of motives or purposes.

It seems to be very simple that we never act or do anything without a specific purpose. A closer analysis, however, reveals a different story.

SELFDEVELOPMENT>> Luminita Saviuc

We all go through painful experiences. We all have moments when we feel lost, sad, abandoned, betrayed, hurt, abused and unfairly treated. We have moment when we fall down, moments when things fall apart and we no longer seem to feel as happy, as courageous, as balanced and as cheerful as we used to. And even though it can be quite challenging to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and start all over again, it is very important that we do it. Why? Because if we do not, we risk allowing a season of sadness, painful challenges and dark experiences to become a lifetime of unhappiness. We risk falling into depression and then living our entire lives from a dark, fearful and very cold place.

SELFDEVELOPMENT>> Caroline D. James

I have felt like I was different ever since I was in elementary school, when my personality started to settle and I came to realize I did not look, think, feel, learn, or act like my peers.
Back in the eighties and early nineties it seemed that, there were not many labels to catalog people by, but still I knew I was different, and teachers and classmates made sure I knew it. “Freak” and “weirdo” were two of their favorite names.
In current times, there would be a many labels to identify me with: ADD, ADHD, dyslexic, depressive, and antisocial, among other medical terms. Socially, there are many other labels to box me in: problematic, troublemaker, weird, crazy, and dramatic, among others.
Labels seemed to be used to put me into boxes so shrinks, teachers, and the world could try to understand me.

Dynamic Youth – June 2015 – Self Development - The More We Limit Ourselves, the More Resourceful We Become

SELFDEVELOPMENT>> James Clear

It can be easy to spend your life complaining about the opportunities that are withheld from us and the resources that we need to make our goals a reality.
But there is an alternative. You can use your constraints to drive creativity. You can embrace your limitations to foster skill development. The problem is rarely the opportunities we have, but how we use them.
In 1843, Soren Kierkegaard published his first major book, Either/Or (ebook), in which he tries to answer the question, “How should we live?” During a particularly interesting passage, the Danish philosopher discusses our tendency to see boredom as a negative influence and points out that we often use boredom as justification to jump continually from thing to thing.

I am someone who is always focusing on the next step rather than the step I am currently taking. I am always longing for the next thing in life.
Looking forward to the future isn’t a bad thing, but when it consumes 90 percent of your daily thoughts, it becomes a bit exhausting.
My energy has always been restless. I get bored easily, crave change constantly, and yearn for immediate fulfillment. At one point, I realized I was letting a good life pass me by.
I have been working full-time and have been a student year-round for over five years. Life has been repetitive for a long time, lots and lots of work with very little playtime.

I started changing my mind, my thoughts, my beliefs and my ideas about who I was and about how life was meant to function. And in time I realized that by doing so, not only did I start feeling a lot more relaxed and happier about my life, and myself but life seemed to get easier and easier.

“There is NOTHING as powerful as a changed mind. You can change your hair, your clothing, your address, your spouse, your friends, but if you don’t change your mind, the same experience will perpetuate itself over and over again because everything outwardly changed but nothing inwardly changed.” ~ Bishop TD Jakes

Dynamic Youth – June 2015 – Self Development - What Do We Really Seek In Life

SELFDEVELOPMENT>> Robert Taylor

Are we really seeking that new home, job, car, boat, vacation (you may add anything you can imagine to this list)?  Or are we seeking the "peace that passeth all understanding"?
We are driven by our needs, wants and desires.  The greater these are, the more we are driven.  A driven person is not a person who is at peace.  That person's needs, wants and desires keep that individual in a state of constant turmoil.
Society teaches us we should constantly strive for all the finer things in life.  The paradox is that society dictates what those finer things should be.  The labels society provides cannot fit every individual, for we are all different.  No two of us have the same wants and desires.

Let us be honest, the hustle and bustle of daily life can distract even the most calm and focused person. From our mounting to-do lists and important client meetings, to remembering to post that tweet — the list goes on and on.
The balance between achieving your personal and professional goals can be easily disturbed by all the ruckus. This is where the yogic practice known as sankalpa can help.
For those who practice yoga you are probably well aware that it is tradition to step onto your mat and set an intention for the practice. This creates a space where the practice connects your mind to your body, offering a greater purpose beyond the physical realm.

Chances are, just that very idea produces a mild sense of anxiety and discomfort. But what if you were to actually go ahead and make that change? What would that look like, what would that feel like?
A rhetorical question, I realize. You only know if you go through with it. If you don’t, you will never know. It’s a really tough place to be—one that I have been grappling with for many months.
Recently I took my own leap of faith and resigned from my job of almost ten years. This was a long time coming; I invested much time and energy on what would be the ideal outcome and when I should take action.

In order to find them, I needed to form a loving relationship with myself.  By applying the following principles to  my life, I was able to build self-worth and open the  door to my soul.
Take Time To Go Within
Sit quietly or relax for a few minutes every day.  Try to spend at least twenty minutes each day going within. I find a comfortable spot where I will not be disturbed, usually outside in my yard, but wherever you feel most comfortable is the spot you should choose.  Enjoy the sounds of nature while you concentrate on your breathing.  Others of you may prefer listening to music or a guided meditation tape.  There is no right way to seek your inner self.  Choose the path you feel most at ease with, and begin your journey inward.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT>>

Do not be afraid to get back up – to try again, to love again, to live again, and to dream again. Do not let a hard lesson harden your heart. Life’s best lessons are often learned at the worst times and from the worst mistakes.

There will be times when it seems like everything that could possibly go wrong is going wrong. And you might feel like you will be stuck in this rut forever, but you will not. When you feel like quitting, remember that sometimes things have to go very wrong before they can be right. Sometimes you have to go through the worst, to arrive at your best.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT>> KEITH JACKSON

Some people are remarkably practical and “hands on.” They see a problem and, after a little bit of thought, ably set about solving it. Probably with a hammer, a spirit level and a justified sense of confidence in their manual prowess.
Other people are more creative or unconventional in their thinking. They don’t focus on a specific issue that needs resolving. They seem to pull a brand new idea or concept out of thin air. They can think of things that people want even before those people know that they want it. Like the iPad®.

The logical, analytical, methodical, and linear-thinking folk are said to be “left brain” people, while “right brain” people are believed to be more intuitive, creative, emotional, and “day dreamy.”
