 600 Seconds – 030- The Six Basic Human Needs | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 10:54

1. Certainty Certainty gives us a sense of security. When things are certain or predictable, we feel more secure and at ease. It reduces our need to be in the “fight or flight” mode. A cohesive family unit, a peaceful community and predictable weather all provide us with certainty. On the other hand, wars, natural disasters, corruptions and unconventional behaviors all make us feel insecure because of their uncertainty. 2. Variety However, even as we appreciate certainty, we also crave for varieties. When things are too predictable, we become bored. So we seek varieties in our life. We pursue new challenges, set new goals and explore new frontiers. 3. Significance We also have the need to feel special. We want to be unique, one of a kind, and we want others to appreciate our uniqueness. 4. Connection or Love We have the need to be accepted, included and loved. We need to feel connected to humanity and life as a whole. 5. Growth When the first four basic needs of the ego are met to our satisfaction, we recognize the new need to grow, to transform and become better than what we are. We strive for self improvement and personal transformation. 6. Contribution We also have the altruistic need to contribute to society and humanity, or to borrow a term from Abraham Maslow, to actualize. - See more at:

 600 Seconds – 029 – The Power in Saying YES! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 11:31

David shares about the inspiration he felt when two of the people who joined him and climbed Kilimanjaro both said YES just a few days before they had to leave to go to Africa. Most people use considerations before saying yes, which often leads to a NO or to never making a decision at all. When we say YES first, and then look at the considerations, it wraps the decision with a whole new energy. What we find when we say YES, and THEN look at the considerations: Begin with a YES in mind, and you will actually find solutions to one of the two major default modes:  “I cant afford it”, &  “I don’t have the time”. David also looks at how “NO’s” can be much more powerful when we don’t wrap them in little white lies or justifications. So, choose YES, and THEN look at the considerations, and use NO with clean, truthful, and considerate power, and you will take a huge leap in living a Kickass Life.

 088 – Kute Blackson Inspires Boundless Bliss | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:03:29

CLICK HERE FOR BOUNDLESS BLISS: A BREAKTHROUGH BALI EXPERIENCE Kute Blackson is an utterly unique visionary in the world of human potential. Unlike those who promise to simply help people “get” what they want, Kute's life work instead reveals to people what they have to give, by liberating who they are most truly and deeply. The focus: Freedom. Kute's own background and experience lay out the blueprint for his approach to liberating others, setting their gifts and greatness free. Born in Ghana, West Africa, his multicultural upbringing as the child of a Japanese mother and Ghanaian father, raised in London, and on 4 different continents defies all stereotype. The son of a revered spiritual leader, Kute was speaking to his fatherʼs congregations, in more than 300 churches, by the age of 8. At the age of 14, he was ordained into his fatherʼs ministry and groomed to carry on the familyʼs spiritual legacy. But his heartʼs truth drew him to separate from his fatherʼs ministry and come to Los Angeles in 1995. Kute courageously and daringly, came to America with two suitcases, and a dream seeking out many of the spiritual and self-help icons who inspired him when he was still a boy. He quickly learned that the outside- in approach had to become an inside-out approach. So he decided to create his own process—a process that liberates the individual at the core. This process helps the individual get in touch with who they really. It is a process of breaking free, so that each person can live, give, and share the truest expression of his or her self. This is what he calls “Liberated Living.” According to Kute, once freed of the conditioned responses scripted by family, society, institutions and the media, people are no longer limited to pre-programmed interactions in the course of living. In fact, life becomes an expansive, jazzy improvisation, that he calls “Freefall.” Today, the venue for his message may be one-on-one, a vast stadium setting, a corporate seminar or anything in-between. His electrifying presentations are especially sought after by major companies, such as American Financial Group, REMAX and TCG, that are seeking to redefine their paradigm of success and inspire greatness. Kute uses a variety of modalities to help people break out of old patterns, including the high frequency messages in his newly released Love Now CD and Love Now music video thatʼs being watched by people around the world. His book is set for release in 2012, and he is currently developing a television talk-show for national distribution. Kute is a global authority in "Transformational Immersion Journeys". He is known worldwide for creating the unique and revolutionary “Liberation Experience,” where he travels with an individual client, one-on-one, across India, for 14 days, as well as the creator of the group process "Boundless Bliss—The Bali Breakthrough Experience". “On the Liberation Experience, I am with the participant 24- hours a day. Not only do they have no idea where they are going, they carry no money, and have no immediate identity, since I also hold their passport. A single change of clothes is their only tenuous thread to the life they left behind. It is an experience guaranteed to shatter every paradigm.” Kute has helped and is in high demand among people from all walks of life. “Having had the opportunity to work with everyone ranging from: entrepreneurs, business moguls, moms, rock stars, salespeople, celebrities, politicians, children, plumbers, plastic surgeons, and circus performers, it is such bliss for me to assist people in transforming their lives. I feel honored to be able to serve people in remembering who they really are, and live lives that are works of art. My vision is to assist people in living the wild freefall that is life, with arms wide open, living each moment completely fresh, and alive. To dare you to pick up the instrument that is your heart and play it fully.”

This wonderful show with Gloria Loring looks at the story of her life from recording artist, actress, author and philanthropist and how she came to understand that the coincidences in her life were truly “God’s way of remaining anonymous” that led her to discovering and falling in love with her authentic self. Gloria is the recording artist of the #1 hit song Friends and Lovers; co-composer of television theme songs Diff’rent Strokes and Facts Of Life; an audience favorite as “Liz Chandler” on Days Of Our Lives; spokesperson for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation; the author of five books benefitting people with diabetes;a keynote speaker for corporations and non-profits; and one of few artists to sing two nominated songs on the Academy Awards.

She is currently in the studio with producer Ted Perlman and songwriting legends Burt Bacharach and Desmond Child. Standing ovations greeted Gloria’s recent concerts with The Palm Beach Pops Symphony in tribute to the Streisand Songbook. The Palm Beach Daily News raved, “Loring commanded the stage from Note One... First and foremost, the lady came to sing — and sing she did — bringing the right combination of pipes and acting chops to give the evening’s tall order its due.” After her four-year-old son was diagnosed with diabetes, she created and self-published two volumes of the Days Of Our Lives Celebrity Cookbook which raised more than $1 million for diabetes research. She has also written Kids, Food and Diabetes, Parenting a Child with Diabetes, The Kids, Food & Diabetes Family Cookbook, and Living With Type 2 Diabetes: Moving Past the Fear.

Gloria is featured on saxophone hottie Jimmy Sommers’ CD, Time Stands Still, singing the Peggy Lee classic, Fever. In an intriguing twist, her newest CD, A Playlist, features her R&B sensation son, Robin Thicke, on two tracks, and days after its release, jazz guitarist Gil Parris invited her to record Robin’s mega-hit Lost Without You with him. Gloria was honored by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation with the Lifetime Commitment Awardand the Founders Award from the National Disease Research Interchange. The Miss America Organization gave her the Woman of Achievement Award, an honor she shares with past recipients Barbara Bush, Roslyn Carter, and Hillary Clinton. She is listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who of American Women.
