By now you have probably heard about a term called 'new normal'. And you've probably realized that your new normal does, in fact, look pretty different from the old normal.

 

Do you like this new normal? 

What have you gained? What have you lost? 

What do you really want to do but you can't do it anymore?

 

More importantly, are you happier now than before?

 

Because, ultimately, the one common goal that all humans have, is to be happy. 

 

Parents wants their children to be safe and healthy because that makes them happy.

You make money because money can get you the essentials you need to keep you satisfied.

Innate Immunity vs Vaccinated Immunity

Nowadays, what do you see in the headlines, when you watch the news, listen to the radio or on your Facebook or instagram feeds? It’s all about the pandemic right, either about how many cases there are weekly, who died from covid, potential long haul symptoms caused by covid or what new variant is coming that is going to be even more infectious and deadly. And that the only way to end this pandemic, to protect everyone around you is to get vaccinated to help build herd immunity. And that US has now vaccinated over 50% of the population and that’s why cases are falling around the country. 

 

All these news seems to be quite one sided...

Hello You'all from Texas, We're Back

 

Hi. We’re the Foolish Couple.  I am Andrew and Minna, Functional Nutrition Specialists and Success Coaches. We created Foco Academy to help people achieve whole life success by applying the Success Principles to the 3 areas of life that money can’t buy, that is, Health, Time, and Relationships.

 

When I first moved to the pacific NorthWest, we went to see something called a salmon ladder. I was wondering, why would a fish climb a ladder?

 

So in case you don’t know, here’s how it happens. Salmon instinctually would want to swim back to its original spawning ground to lay eggs and die.

Somehow, we put a dam in their path, blocking the fish from swimming back to where it wants to be. And the dam was so high and the water so strong that there is no way a fish can swim through it. So people put in ladders, basically small steps for the fish to jump up, one step at a time, until it goes over the dam and swim towards its destination.

 

Now, this...

Finding Certainty in Uncertain Times

 

Do you feel unsure? Are you doubtful of how next year is going to look like for you? Do you wish something good would happen but so far, all the news you've heard are pretty much bad news?

 

This year, the year of 2020, was pretty unique right? If you live in the United States, we've just had a presidential election where over 10 billion dollars was spent on the campaign, and the fanfare that it created was pretty epic, in a bad way, my opinion.

 

And then there was the racial uprising that stormed across the country and caused riots and all sorts of dismay.

 

And then, of course, there was this virus that took over the whole world. Companies that survived through world war and the depression, even those could...

Why aren't you happy?

Why are people not happy?

 

According to an article, 322 million people across the globe suffer from depression. Probably more assuming there are people who are not properly diagnosed.

 

The mental health of people are declining. And get this. The number 1 cause of disability - is not physical sickness. The number 1 cause of disability is depression. Just so happens that according to statistics, women are twice as likely as men to become depressed. And less than 50% of people who suffer from a mental disorder are getting any type of treatment.

 

According to the article, over 34 million US residents age 65 and above are depressed. And I expect that this year, this number is going to shoot up sky high.

 

According to WebMD, depression rates since COVID has shot...

Who's Your Authority Figure?

Who's Your Authority Figure? 

 

By now we'd probably know who will be occupying the White House next year. And, looking at the numbers, I was right. The votes, turns out, is about 50-50. What I'm saying is, whoever won the election, half the people will be happy, the other half of the people would be upset.

 

Isn't that amazing? Arguably the most powerful person in the world, 1 out of 2 people will not like him. Some probably hate him passionately.

 

Either way, regardless of which country you are in, most people would see their country's leader as a authority figure. That person may be a president, a prime minister, king or queen, or a sultan. And even on a lower level, the governor, or even the mayor. These so-called 'leaders' are often seen as the authority figure and the...

How to Fix Your Stinking Thinking?

Have you Got a Fixed Mindset? Got STINKING THINKING?

 

In 1986, lieutenant Pete Mitchell enrolled in the elite air force pilot school. He believed that he was the best of the best, he was so talented that he can maneuver a F14 in a way that no one else can. Until one day, he went out for a routine exercise and lost control of his plane. The plane nose dived straight into the ocean, him and his partner were ejected out of the plane and in the process, his partner in the back hit the canopy and was killed instantly.

 

 

As guilt set in, Lieutenant Mitchell lost all his confidence. He felt like he was not fit for the job. He was thinking about quitting. Until, at a moment in time, with the guidance of his mentor, he changed his thinking. He changed his belief. He turned his guilt into an...

Now it’s coming down to the wire, you have a big decision to make. The election is going to happen in just a couple of weeks. Who will win? Well, Minna has already covered that in a previous blog, so I won’t talk about that again.

 

But here’s what I want you to think about while you decide who you are voting for. Who do you think is going to save you? Who do you think will be your hero?

 

There is a pandemic out there. Sure, the Covid-19. And the news makes it sound scary and haunting. So, are you hoping that whoever the next president is, that they are going to fix the pandemic? That they are going to save you?

 

I agree that there is a pandemic out there. But I’m not talking about COVID. I’m talking about entitlement. If you are hoping for someone else to...

Who will WIN?

***Transcripts below***

Who will WIN?

 Alright. At this point in time, at least if you are in the United States, it is all about the presidential election. Even for me and I never watch the news. I know that there's a lot of people out there analyzing the odds and talking about the debate and what not.

 

Who's going to win? That's the big question right?

 

 

Well, I can pretty tell you what the election results are going to look like. Here's what I know. Both candidates are idiots. Neither of them have any charisma, they don't show any leadership qualities. They have no solid plan for the country's future.

 

All they do is that they say what you want to hear, so that they can get your vote. That's how the game works.

 

Look. I am not pro any idiot. And I think they are both idiots. They may be high functioning idiots, but still, idiots. So which of these idiots are going to win?

 

Well, I go to my crystal ball, rub it for hours and eventually...

What is the Secret to Happiness?

 

We are in crazy times, but this is also unprecedented and gives us a great opportunity to reinvent ourselves and to really do what we are meant to do.

 

The media has painted a vivid picture of doom and gloom. But here's a trick. If you would just stay off all news for just a few days. I know, it's hard. News is addictive. You want to know what's going on with the world. But I promise you that if you stay away from the news for even just a few days. Your perspective would change. You will feel different. You will feel the gratitude about your situation, you become more hopeful, happy, and ready to change your life for the better.

 

It is OK to have dreams and goals, it is OK to want more, to have more. Because when we have more, we can give more to others who needed our help.
