  • The Genius of Coffee

Moving Day is Upon Us

This week I'll be moving everything to DanHansen.com. I have already moved the archive over. The subscription information, iTunes settings, and redirecting this website to the new home will take about 48 hours. I hope all goes well so you don't miss a thing.

Listener Feedback

Coffee has been scientifically proven to provide several health benefits such as, increasing mental acuity; increasing your energy level; coffee drinkers are less likely to have type 2 diabetes; fewer cases of certain cancers, and strokes. I just drink it because it kick starts my day, and well… I am addicted.

The Genius of Coffee

Coffee is not a luxury... It's a part of everyday life.

  • One of the world's most consumed beverages: After an extensive search on the internet I have found that coffee and tea fall in line right after water.
  • World's largest commodity traded after oilInvestorGuide.com (2013) and Forbes.com (2014) stated that coffee is the second largest commodity traded. As of today, According to NASDAQ (2014) Coffee volume is higher.
  • Approximately 1.6 Billion cups of coffee are consumed dailyForbes.com stated that five hundred billion cups of coffee are consumed every year worldwide, but few people know much about the world’s second most traded commodity (behind oil!) (2014). 
  • Millions pay up to $4 per cup and drink 3-4 cups per day: I started at 2 pots a day. Now I drink at least 3-4 cups a day and pay 56 cents to $1.15 a cup with Organo Gold - "the Coffee that Pays".
  • Health Benefits: Hensrod suggested that  recent research indicated that coffee may not be bad after all; for most people the health benefits outweigh the risks. He continued that studies have shown that coffee may have health benefits, including protecting against Parkinson's disease, type 2 diabetes, liver disease,  liver cancer, appears to improves cognitive function and decreases the risk of depression (2014).

The Game of Life: Episode 9The Game of Life

Today's Episode:

  • Meet Florence Scovel Shinn
  • The Game of Life

Meet Florence Scovel Shinn

I was introduced to the complete writings of Florence Scovel Shinn in 1991, when I opened my first business. It was a gift to launch that my Wellness Center. I use the book when I am looking for an answer. I do this by randomly opening a page and read it. It's one of those books you might keep on your desk to gain inspiration from.

Florence Scovel ShinnFlorence Scovel Shinn (1871-1940) was an American artist, book illustrator, and a true visionary. She was a spiritual woman and discussed the wisdom in the bible. Just 5 years after the 19th Amendment was passed allowing women to vote.  In 1925 she wrote the Game of Life and How to Play it. 

Wrote four books:

  • The Game of Life (1925)
  • Your Word is Your Wand (1928)
  • The Secret Door to Success (1940)
  • The Power of the Spoken Word

 

The Game of Life

The invisible forces are ever working for man who is always ‘pulling the strings’ himself, though he does not know it. Owing to the vibratory power of words, whatever man voices, he begins to attract.

 ~ Florence Scovel Shinn, The Game of Life

Shinn (1925) suggested that life was a game and the quality of life depended on how well you played. Her underlying philosophy was that Jesus taught that life is a great game of giving and receiving. All the rules can be found in the Old and New Testament.

The philosophies are not new and have been expressed many ways by many people and religions:

  • What so ever a man soweth that shall also reap - King James Bible
  • Sir Isaac Newton's Law of Cause and Effect 
  • The belief in Karma
  • John C. Maxwell: The Law of Attraction
  • Napoleon Hill: Think and Grow Rich

Parting Thought

If you paint in your mind a picture of bright and happy expectations, you put yourself into a condition conducive to your goal.

Norman Vincent Peale
