Project 5K!

WantMyCoffee.com

I am launching one of the largest projects of my professional career, Project 5K, it could mean a 6 figure income for the right person. Knowing what you know today about Starbucks if you had an opportunity to invest 10 years ago would you have done it? I am certain I found something Bigger.

I am excited in my company Organo Gold (OG). I first had the Gourmet Black coffee over a year ago. I loved the taste and felt amazing after that first cup. Organo Gold not only helped me physically but also financially. Financially, I have earned 5 of the 7 ways you can in the business and look forward to the other two. Physically, if you have been following my blog, I have now lost 105 pounds since June thanks to my coffee, capsules, personal development (the foundation of OG), and making a decision. Like OG I have my own 4 Steps:

  1. Make a decision - I made a decision to fit comfortably on a plane because I was challenged to race Ferrari's on the Autobahn in Germany.
  2. Personal Development - Changing my mindset to be happy, healthy and wealthy
  3. Be OG - which to me means being a total product of the product by not only drinking the coffee but also taking my spores everyday.
  4. Changed lifestyle (no diet) - I cut back on or totally eliminated breads, deserts, red meat, and fried food. I can eat those things although I choose not to. I made the change because I didn't ever want to count calories again. If it doesn't look or sound healthy I chose not to eat it. If I want something sweet I have a Mocha or Hot Chocolate.

Counting Your Blessings

Count your blessings. You are one of a kind. There's no one in the world like you. You are amazing.
Richard Simmons, Fitness Guru and Motivational Speaker

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale tells a story about a man who lost everything. Had that man sit down and started listing off the things he did have. He listed things like his health, loving wife, good kids, a brain to think with, etc...

I've been there and may be you have too. I realized that I'm in a recession when my neighbor loses his/her job. It's a depression is when it happened to you. Instead of dwelling on those things you lost, start listing what you do have and be grateful for them. Life is too short!

List Your Blessings

  • Faith - I still have a God that loves me even though I forget to tell him/her
  • Family - I have a good wife mother to my great son, my mother is still with us, my brothers, and my Organo Gold family
  • Friends - I have friends who support me
  • Fitness - I've lost 86 pounds. I can still speak, hear and see. I can move around easily. I still have a few hairs on my head.
  • Finances - I will be a coffee millionaire. I have a roof over my head. My car gets me to where I need to be.

Happy and Grateful Affirmations

In the movie, The Secret, I heard the statement I am happy and grateful now that... and you fill in the blank. These are affirmations that you can use to take you to your hopes and dreams.

I am happy and grateful now that I have a loving family that supports me.

I am happy and grateful now that I am a Diamond in Organo Gold living the number one lifestyle in the World.

I am happy and grateful now that I have the freedom to help and serve other people everywhere.

Save Kids Lives!

Victoria Enmon's Inspiring Story

positive_social_change

My son, David, and I are on a mission to Save Kids Lives and we need your help. Our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few.

David started his first Extra Life event as a way of doing something good with his nerdy passions of tabletop and video gaming. He learned that his mother, my wife, had spent months as a child in the hospital he is supporting.  Since his first year participating in Extra-Life, that hospital has moved to a wonderful new facility. He has been able to visit it and was inspired to see what they provide for the children and their families. Our family has made this Extra-Life gaming event a fun and exciting experience every year since.

Extra Life

Extra Life began in 2008 as a way of honoring a young lady named Victoria Enmon (see her story). Her battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia inspired the SarcasticGamer.com Blog/Podcast Community in a way that is difficult to describe. Members sent video games and bought gifts to keep Tori’s spirits up despite numerous hospital stays and three bouts with the deadly disease.

Tragically, Tori was lost to cancer in January 2008. Later that year, Sarcastic Gamer launched Extra Life, a 24-hour video game marathon to raise money for the hospital that treated and fought beside Tori. In 2008 and 2009 Extra Life raised a combined $302,000, 100 percent of which went directly to help kids like Tori at my local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital (Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago).

On November 15, 2014, we participated in this huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds. We went from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's! This year we did something a bit different.

We added coffee to the 24-hour video game marathon and created a site where individuals can purchase coffee to continue supporting Extra Life… buy our coffee, http://etralifecafe.com. Your purchases may be tax deductible since 50% of all profits will go to help Save Kids Lives.

HOPE: TCC Episode 27

Today's Episode:

  • HOPE (Helping Other People Everywhere)
  • How You Can Help Others

HOPE (Helping Other People Everywhere)

I always wanted to help people. At first I wanted to be a paramedic. Then I thought I'd like to be a doctor. I never did either, YET. At least not a medical doctor.

I ended up in Nursing after my father passed. As a result of a class I took, I became a certified hypnotist. I'm working on my Ph.D. to make a difference in adult education. I will be Doctor Dan.

This podcast has helped my in more ways then one. I get to help people in a way I never thought about. I decided what I want to do when I grow up... Be a Coach. Now I hope to help you.

My Mission:

  • Godliness: Living to serve others. Godliness isolates negativity.
  • Help others: Helping others has helped me take the focus off my problems. By helping you reach your hopes and dreams, I'll eventually reach my hopes and dreams.

How You Can Help Others

  1. Ask what you can do to help: Straight out ask "what can I do?"
  2. Smile: Acknowledge others
  3. Lend an ear: Just listening to someone else can make a difference
  4. Send a card or gift: Just let someone know you are thinking of them. Reach out and touch someone.
  5. Volunteer: Volunteer in your community, for an organization, or a hospital (which is how I met my wife 35 years ago)
  6. Donate: Give money to your favorite cause.
  7. Stop and help a stranger: Stop and help someone stranded on the side of the road.

How to Resist Temptation: TCC Episode 26resisttemptation

Today's Episode:

  • The Temptation
  • How to Resist Temptation

The Temptation

I love my coffee business and what it has done for  me physically and financially. This last weekend my buddy, while helping his coffee business, kept referring to other network marketing programs he was involved in. After the event was over he told me about his success at losing 19 pounds over the past few months and made me one of his shakes to try.

I said, "I've lost 83 pounds with my coffee and capsules (danhansen.com/13) since the beginning of June 2014", which is very significant since I don't work out or starve myself. I realized I was very happy and grateful for my coffee company and the benefits it provides me and my family. My buddy was trying to get me to be a customer for a product that I have tried in the past without the success I'm having now.

Shakes are good, they provide nutrients and stuff, but I forget to make one as I'm running out of the house with my coffee. I have to ask why should I buy another shake product when I have several in my house that have probably expired like my stationary clothes hanger.

I probably should have said no but he said to get his coffee in, he adds it to the shake. I thought, "how interesting make me one of those". I tried it both ways and loved the one with the coffee. Gee! it tasted like my mocha only cold with a teaspoon of peanut butter. I feel a new coffee recipe coming on, peanut butter mocha.

How to Resist Temptation

  1. Just say NO - For some that could be difficult especially if you work real hard to help others. Clear (2014) suggested that learning to say no should be a developed skill to help you in any endeavor. I have to agree.
  2. Remember Your Goals and Dreams - Ask yourself will this take me away from or toward my goals and dreams
  3. Who are you listening, What are you reading - if you hang around and listen to people who are living your dream, you'll more then likely succeed especially if you imitate them and do what they do. Hill (1937) suggested that you should have a mastermind alliance and surround yourself with people who will help you reach your goals and dreams.

Coffee and Positive Social ChangeThe Coffee Couch Logo

I know a few people in Africa that have been affected by the Ebola and friends who have come back to the states not affected. I understand the severity of the epidemic and see the government’s reaction to it by restricting travel in and out of West Africa, as well as setting up facilities to treat the disease. This also means that health organizations and hospitals need to create and implement strategies to contain and treat patients (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2014). I like to think outside the box and look at alternatives, which is why I'm excited to own my own healthy coffee business.

My coffee company, Organo Gold, just opened up in Nigeria and the response to having Ganoderma Lucidum, infused in the coffee, helping many people has been overwhelming. Nyishar (2013) suggested that Ganoderma is an adaptogen and has many health benefits, especially helping the immune system as well as many health benefits like cancer. I am glad that the herb in my coffee is helping people feeling better from the effects of Ebola. The study I would like to see happen is to see what the actual effects that this miraculous king of herbs could do against it.

It is amazing what an impact on social change that could make. Not only would it help with health but also add to economic growth. It has made a difference in my life by no longer taking allergy medicine and losing almost 80 pounds, as well as providing a source of residual income. Organo Gold is all about creating positive social through personal development and helping people change their money. Who knew coffee and positive social change went together!

This Episode

  • What is Abundance

  • 5 Ways to Tune Into Abundance

What is Abundance?

Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.

Abundance (2014) a large amount of something. That something could be anything from money to possessions, to love, or even happiness.

The movie, The Secret, helped me understand the Law of Attraction and creating abundance.

Dreams or Goals

I want to do is make a difference in the world and let people know I was here. I have a financial goal to reach a level of income of over $1,000,000 a year in Organo Gold as a Diamond, called the number one lifestyle in the world. I want to lose weight as well. I see what that looks like.

What does that look like?

  • I see myself getting knighted
  • I see myself with the sword and shield
  • I have a picture of a million dollar bill so I can see it everyday
  • I see myself sitting in the front with the other Diamonds
  • I see myself sitting on an airplane without a seatbelt extension

Why do I want to do it?

  • To improve my mothers living conditions
  • Own my own lighthouse
  • Change my address I like Maine and Hawaii
  • Freedom to travel all around the world
  • Financial freedom and time to finish my dissertation and do more research
  • Financial freedom and time to write books and screenplays that entertain and inspire.

What will I gain?

  • Accomplishing something greater than myself
  • Become Dr. Dan by completing my Ph.D.
  • Become an author and screenwriter, who writes books and movies that entertain and inspire
  • Saving kids’ lives by supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through Extra Life at http://danhansen.com/extralife
  • Helping Native Americans decrease diabetes with a healthier coffee

5 Ways to Tune Into Abundance

  1. Think Big - Write down your dreams and goals
  2. See Big - Picture it in your minds eye or theater of the mind
  3. Speak Big - Say it outloud in affirmations or I'm happy and grateful statements
  4. Believe Big - Start putting big emotion or feeling behind what you are saying

30 Day Coffee Challenge

keep-calm-and-take-the-30-day-coffee-challenge

I'm so proud of my weight loss experience. You can hear about it at danhansen.com/15 and the coffee that helped. As I mentioned in Episode 15 of The Coffee Couch Podcast, I noticed that my eating habits changed. I no longer crave breads and sweets.

dan_before_after_082114

This last week I decided to test my cravings by doing a fruit fast, to see if I could. Being a researcher, this was a golden opportunity to see if I missed other foods like meat. I'm an omnivore and love my meats bordering on carnivore. Tomorrow is Labor Day, here in the United States, and I know there will be brats, ribs and cakes. I'm sure I'll at least see a few salads, some fruit and at least chicken. I'm positive I'll have my coffee with me, probably lattes and mochas.

I just had to challenge everyone to give it a try. I never thought there was such a thing as a healthy cup of coffee. I was wrong. I used to drink 2 pots of coffee a day plus 2 extra large coffees from Dunkin Donuts. Now, I just drink Organo Gold.

The 30 Day Coffee Challenge

Drink one box of Organo Gold Gourmet Black Coffee, there are 30 individual servings per box. Drink only Organo Gold. Then contact me at http://danhansen.com/contact or dan@wantmycofee.com to let me know how you liked the taste and how did it make you feel.

How I Lost Over 50 Pounds

Before 6/12/2014 and After 8/19/2014 - Holding the shorts that I wore in the before picture 🙂

Ever Since my last Podcast Episode this week, I've been getting questions on how I lost over 50 pounds. People then asked if I had changed my diet or eating habits. I answered Yes and No. It all started with Organo Gold not only the coffee but also the company.

With Organo Gold the first step is be a product of the product, which means use all the products. When i first tasted it my skin felt electrified. So basically I was feeling good. Another thing Organo Gold has done for me was to listen to personal development. In March 2014, on our way to the Organo Gold International Convention in San Antonio, my brother, Ray, and I listened to Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich.  We came up with the idea and challenged each other to Think and Grow Thin. 

I was diagnosed with diabetes with a A1C of 7.1 and weighed in at 380 pounds. The doctor said lose weight. I was so desperate that I even auditioned for The Biggest Loser, didn't get on. In march I was stuck at about 350 area and injured my knee. I was still drinking my coffee and occasionally taking the  Organo Gold Capsules. Then at the end of May at the Organo Gold VIP Red Carpet Event, I was able to hang with the people I wanted to be like. This sparked a hint of a vision. Then on the ride home something happened in my thinking. My wife did something that would have normally made me angry but I was able to channel that energy into the picture I had of a skinnier and more energetic me.

I just amped up my game by making sure I took my Organo Gold Capsules daily without fail.  I start the day with Grapeseed Extract with Ganoderma, definitely helped with my knee problem. I even texted a friend of mine who had the same injury to tell her I no longer had the pain even that started happening when I got more consistent. Then 3 Mycelium daily, which helped with mental clarity. Midday, I take the Ganoderma capsules for overall health and body detox. Just before bed I take the Spore Powder. All I know is I get a better quality of sleep and I find I don't crave the breads or the sweets. If I feel the need for something sweet, I drink an Organo Gold Mocha or Hot Chocolate. Now I looking forward to my Wednesday weigh-ins!

What really got my attention was when I weighed in this week and was in the 320's. I haven't seen the 320s in almost 15 years. So i even re recorded my podcast to share this

Wednesday Weigh-In: My Wall Was My Weight

Before 6/12/2014 and After 8/19/2014 holding shorts wore in the before 🙂

I got so stuck on the how-to that I forgot to get to basics, the want-to. I had to ask better questions. How can I turn this around? What can I do to get over this wall?

I have been a yo-yo dieter. I have struggled with my weight since I was young. I was diagnosed with Morbid Obesity at 380 pounds. The last time I weighed 200 lbs I was 13. My wall was 340 pound mark.

Since I started using my coffee and taking the Organo Gold Capsules, part of my 30 day mental fast, I have shed just over 50 pounds. I found I no longer crave breads or desserts. I no longer have a taste for beer which is weird because I used to brew it. Now I'm weighing in at 328.8 as of this post.
