DID YOU KNOW (http://www.didyouknow.org/)
Researchers at the University of Sussex have discovered that cats use a "soliciting purr" (begging or pleading) to manipulate their owners into doing their bidding, especially when they want to be fed. Unlike regular, low frequency purring, this "solicitation purr" includes a higher-pitched sound with a frequency similar to a baby's cry, a sound humans are naturally inclined to respond to and find difficult to ignore.
TIP OF THE DAY
There's no room for adventure and excitement in your comfort zone; in fact, over time you might feel crowded out by boredom and fear. Perhaps it's time to stretch those limits a little, eh?
- Make a fool of yourself. One of the biggest things that holds many of us back is our fear of what people think. After all, you don't want people to think you're weird or rude or creepy etc. But wait -- think about the most lovable, magnetic people you've come across in your life. Odds are, they weren't the humble, agreeable people who are reliably pleasant to be around. They were the people who were crazy and charming. People who blurted out silly, maybe inappropriate things, or who made huge, slap-your-forehead mistakes, or who were over the top most of the time, but others forgave them for being less than perfect and in fact, liked them for it. So shatter your concern for what people think of you. You're allowed to be less than perfect, and you may find that people like you more for it, because it makes you a more exciting person to be around
- Face your fears. There are the big fears, such as heights, spiders, tight spaces, and germs, but there are also hundreds of subtle fears we bow to every day. Like the fear of breaking a bone, or falling down, or getting caught in the rain. What are the precautions you take every day to avoid "negative" circumstances? And are those circumstances really worth stepping around? Those steps add up! It's good to be proactive, but it's bad to let a significant portion of your life be devoted to preventing things that never happen--Little things that could turn into adventures or funny stories if you allow yourself to deal with a little discomfort.
- Become comfortable with taking risks. Your comfort zone is comfortable because it's where you know what to expect. Going out on a limb can be scary because you might fail. You might lose something. But you might also gain something. In order to become comfortable with that uncertainty, you'll need to practice the following:
- Non-attachment. When you decide to do something, do it for its own sake, not so that you can get a particular result. If you gamble, gamble with money you're ready and willing to lose; gamble for the fun and exhilaration of gambling. If you win, that's icing on the cake! But if you lose, no big deal. In other words, let go of your attachment to a certain outcome; instead, focus on the joy of doing whatever you're doing. Live in the moment.
- Acceptance. When things don't go your way, and they won't, motion it off. If you're clinging to your comfort zone, you're hanging on to an idea that the world is supposed to be a safe, predictable place, and that's an illusion. You're setting yourself up for frustration and disappointment. Open your eyes. The world is a dynamic place where things go right and wrong. That's just the way it is!

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. And it will leave you unfulfilled.
