This Waitress Changed This and Got Rid of Her Disease

This Waitress Changed This and Got Rid of Her Disease

The other night my wife and I were out to dinner and as we were ordering we got the new age customary question, “Do you have any allergies?”  I inserted my normal dad jokes about allergies and EpiPen’s.  As most Dad jokes they’re only funny to me and besides the humor that my wife fell in love with is not so humorous anymore.  My jokes fell on deaf ears.  But, no need to feel sorry for me.  I still entertained myself.

The waitress went on to recount her allergy story.  She explained how she had allergies.  She had a severe peanut allergy.  The key word in that sentence was had.

She went on to tell when she was living in Los Angeles that she had friends who had allergies and were able to get rid of them.  She said the friends had the belief that the allergy was just in their head meaning it was just a belief they held and that the allergy wasn’t a real aversion or a chink in their DNA.  The allergy was just a belief?  The opposite would be a belief that they didn’t have any allergy.

She went on to tell the story that a local Shaman was able to help them get rid of their allergy by helping them change their beliefs.  Now let me explain a little more about what a Shaman is and isn’t.  My definition and experience of what a Shaman is, is they are ancient healers.  A Shaman is considered a spiritual guide through energy and emotions. 

Online this is what Google says a Shaman is…

a person regarded as having access to, and influence in, the world of good and evil spirits, especially among some peoples of northern Asia and North America. Typically, such people enter a trance state during a ritual, and practice divination and healing, and was able to tap into their unconscious mind.

What are the powers of a shaman?

Shamans claim to gain knowledge and the power to heal by entering into the spiritual world or dimension. Most shamans have dreams or visions that convey certain messages. The shaman may have or acquire many spirit guides, who often guide and direct the shaman in their travels in the spirit world.

I know that sounds frufruy and it was in California, but stay with me for a second.

The waitress told us the result she experienced from going to the Shaman is now she no longer has any allergies.  The idea of beliefs driving our actions and results have always fascinated me.  A few years ago my wife would watch a documentary Beyond Belief every morning as we were getting ready for work.  One of the interviews on the movie talked about the Placebo Effect. 

The Placebo Effect is…

a beneficial effect produced by a placebo drug or treatment, which cannot be attributed to the properties of the placebo itself, and must therefore be due to the patient’s belief in that treatment.

In scientific studies this has been attributed with a 40% success rate meaning 40% of the time a patient got better not because of the medicine but because of their own beliefs.  I always thought this is awesome that someone could heal themselves by having a belief that something is going to heal them. 

The question is in what area or areas of life are your beliefs not serving you?  What different results would you have if you changed those beliefs?  How can you tap into your unconscious mind and change your beliefs to have different results? 

Dominate the Day,

Matt

Your Kids Could Provide You with Bigger Tax Breaks Than You’re Utilizing

Your Kids Could Provide You with Bigger Tax Breaks Than You’re Utilizing

Do you have kids that are teenagers?  Are they working for you?  Last night I was out to dinner with some clients and one of them owns a cement company.  He has a joint venture with the Ozinga concrete and construction company.

He was telling the story how he was college roommates with an Ozinga.  He laughs because he had no clue who the family was or what they did.  He said he would constantly give Ozinga crap because he would come in full of cement dust and make the dorm room all dirty.

He recounted asking Ozinga to play basketball at the rec center after class and Ozinga saying he couldn’t because he had to go back to work.  His work?  Going into the large cement mixer and cleaning off the sides.

I guess they used to have to do this manually before a tool was invented to do it now.  I imagine that tool was invented by someone who had to clean out the inside and skip playing basketball with his buddies.  Necessity is the mother of all inventions.

I don’t know if he was paid or not, but there are two types of entrepreneurs when it comes to deciding to pay their kids or not.

  • Their kids are slave labor plain and simple. Working for the family business for free is a right of passage.  I can’t agree or disagree with that, but certainly all the hard-manual labor jobs that I was underpaid for kept me in college.
  • The business owner pays their kid for doing work.

No matter which camp you may lie you can possibly take advantage of some tax advantages.  What I’m about to tell you has no barring on what I think you should pay your kids or if they should keep this whole amount.  Maybe you want to pay them the amount and have them pay you for rent or something to teach them responsibility.  I know that hard work I was underpaid for made me appreciate other work and the amount I was getting paid.

Here are the numbers.

Under the tax law everyone gets a Standard Deduction of $12,000.  Thus if you pay your kid up to the $12,000 they will not incur any federal tax.

Let’s say you are in the 32% effective tax bracket.  Meaning for every $1 you make you pay .32 of taxes.  On $12,000 you would pay $3,840.  What would your kid pay? $0!

I have a client who has 4 kids.  That is a savings of $15,360.  This is typically one of the few strategies that we help business owner’s decide if it is the right thing for them and their business.  With more and more kids staying at home longer and with college becoming more and more expensive this is one way to lighten the bite.
