Can Failure be Success?

Look. The future isn’t guaranteed. We don’t know if we will succeed or even if we will be alive tomorrow. But what we can do is try to live our dreams each and every day. We can only do this by taking action. 

When we take action, we are proving to ourselves that life is more than just a monotonous series of day to day events. When we strive to live our dreams or live up to our potential, our lives become more meaningful. We begin to take joy in the very act of trying to achieve something. This is how we become more fulfilled. 

 This is one reason I started this blog. I wanted to share my enthusiasm and experiences – not just for the readers of the blog, but for myself too.
We can no longer wait to live our own dreams. Most of us have spent way too long trying to live the dreams of others. If you’re working as an employee, then you’re helping someone else achieve their dreams not your own. If fears holding you back from taking action, then you’re living out of fear not for yourself.  Get in touch with yourself. Be aware of the underlying perceptions that are holding you back. Is it another person or yourself?Stay alert!  You are responsible for what ever happens.  Be the hero of your own life.

What ever is in your heart to achieve, do something to make it come true today. Whether you want to write a novel, start a business, get fit, or do something to better yourself, realize you only have a certain amount of time on this earth to make a difference in your own life and those of others. As it has been said, what one man has done, another man can do.

Just to be alive is something special; do not waste this time you’ve been given. Find a way to feel the urgency to get something done. This is your life were talking about!

As you know, I’ve launched a kick starter campaign for a Neti pot that I’ve developed. I might not be successful but that’s alright, because I’ve tried. And in doing so, it’s added value and meaning to my life. Kick Starter Campaign

  
Stop living someone else’s dream.  Live yours as if your life depends on it…because it does. 
Here’s to all of us that try.

Remember to take action each and every day and be grateful.

With love and respect,

How to Relieve Allergies, Breathe Easy, Sleep Better, and Not Worry about Naegleria fowleri

Hi All –

I hope this post finds everyone healthy and happy.

Have you ever used a neti pot? Neti pots were used as an ayurvedic yoga tradition in ancient India for nasal irrigation, In the past few year neti pots gained popularity in the United States after they were featured on the Oprah Winfrey show by Dr. Oz as a natural and health alternative for allergy and nasal infection sufferers.

I was a firm believer in the benefits of using a neti pot and like millions of neti pot users, I used warm tap water.  it was easy to get a perfect water temperature using tap water and the neti pot was very effective at helping me breath freely by cleaning pollens and pollutants from my nasal passages. An added benefit was It helped me sleep better at night by reducing congestion and also snoring.  But then in 2011, the evening news reported that two people had died from using tap water contaminated by the “brain-eating” amoeba known as Naegleria fowleri.  http://www.cbsnews.com/news/tap-water-in-neti-pots-behind-two-brain-eating-amoeba-deaths-in-2011-investigation-finds/

If this scared you like it did me, then it also ultimately resulted in not using a neti pot at all.  At first, I would either boil tap water or heat distilled water using my kitchen stove.  It was just too inconvenience to boil tap water or heat distilled water in the kitchen, transport it to the bathroom, let it cool down (sometime too long so the water became uncomfortably cool), and finally mixing it with neti pot salt. This was enough of an inconvenience that I stopped using my neti pot. Although not optimal, I once again began to using over-the-counter medicines which made my thinking foggy.  There had to be a better solution.

I came up with this prototype that warms distilled water to a perfect temperature right in the bathroom. I love it!  No more boiling tap water or heating distilled water in the kitchen.  I’m back to breathing easier and sleeping better thanks to a simple innovation.

As far as I know, this is the only neti pot designed to be used with a heating element.  The neti pot is ceramic and the water is heated to close to body temperature in 4 to 5 minutes.  It then keeps the water perfectly warm.

I’m asking for suggestion on what to name the device, suggested improvements, and colors.

I will be starting a Kick Starter campaign soon, and accepting pre-orders once I establish a sales price.  I would truly love to send you one of the first production models and hear your comments.

If you know anyone who suffers from allergies, nasal infections, snoring, or who like me stopped using a neti pot because of the inconvenience, then please let them know.

As I always say, take action every day and be grateful!

With Love and Respect,

Gary
