Richard Moss Deep Work For Essential Change
To live life to the fullest you must have true deep seeded peace within yourself. Richard Moss has spent 35 years teaching people about deep work for essential change. He is a best-selling author, healer and an inspiration to those seeking to have peace and balance in their life. He believes that anything is possible and that we must embrace fear and love fear in order to not fear fear. He has transformed people’s life’s and speaks to the power we have within ourselves to create our own reality. We all have the right to inner peace and should claim it.There cannot be true change—real lasting transformation-- without DEEP WORK.And that is why Richard Moss, the Maestro of “DEEP WORK,” has given his life over teaching people how to delve deeply into their inner core so they can achieve a life of “Radical Aliveness,” Unconditional Love, and Real Inner Peace.For 37 years, this globally renowned physician-turned-master healer, international bestselling Hay House author, and workshop leader has been guiding people on profound journeys of self-inquiry and self-discovery that have transformed their relationship with themselves, with their loved ones and with the world.“To join me in Deep Work means that you want to become the most balanced, awake, alive, and loving person you can be. It means you want your whole life – and most importantly every relationship – to be lived as an expression of your spiritual path,“ says Moss. “This means that you want and are willing to do the deep work of seeing and rooting out everything in you that has limited your ability to love and celebrate life.”Moss’ work is centered in helping people achieve present moment awareness—and to clear away the beliefs, habits and thinking patterns that prevent them from living in a hyper-alive, joyful and loving state of being nearly all of the time. In Moss’ bestselling books Inside-Out Healing and The Mandala of Being, he outlines his methodology for achieving this mastery. But while people can do this work on their own, it is often in the workshops, lovingly coached by Moss, that many achieve their most profound transformations.Website: www.richardmoss.comShow Airing Tuesday, November 26, 2013 8:00 PM

Grahak Cunningham Running 43 Days Straight
"One of the world's most extraordinary athletes " ~New Zealand Herald"The distances he runs are beyond the realms of even the toughest athletes" ~Ultrafit Magazine"If anyone knows the meaning of endurance, it is Grahak Cunningham " ~The West Australian
Running for 18 hours a day, seven days a week, for over six weeks. Almost three marathons a day, day -in day-out, blisters that won't heal, sleep deprivation, weight loss...
Founded in 1997 to exemplify the endless possibilities of the human spirit, the Self Transcendence 3100 Mile Race is held every year on a concrete footpath around an 883 metre block in Queens, New York.The world’s longest and most gruelling foot race, runners are given 18 hours a day, from 6:00 a.m. to midnight, for 51 days, to run a minimum of 60 miles a day (96km) to complete the distance. This involves circumnavigating the block 5649 times.Over the duration of the race, runners wear out fifteen pairs of shoes, and their feet swell an extra two sizes. In a typical New York summer, temperatures can reach 40 degrees centigrade with 85% humidity. Competitors must contend with boredom, fatigue, torrential deluges, extreme pain, injuries and sleep deprivation—but most of all, they have to deal with themselves. Outwardly for their efforts they will receive a plastic trophy and a t-shirt but they make a lifetime of progress.
Grahak's records for the 3100 Race:• 2007 (50 days + 03:02:26) averaging 99 km/day, 6th place• 2008 (46 days + 11:53:48) averaging 107 km/day, 3rd place• 2009 (44 days + 09:08:58) averaging 112 km/day, 2nd place• 2012 (43 days + 10:36:39) averaging 115 km/day, 1st place.http://www.grahakcunningham.com/

Derek Anderson: Stamina Don't Run Out Of Breath Before You Win
Everyday I woke up I always had a plan to better myself. The problem was most of the people around me didn't think that way. I used to get frustrated because I always wanted to be better than my situation but other people around me were content on being stuck in poverty or accepting that they couldn't have a better life. It seemed as if I had to run my own life at an early age just to survive to see the next day.At age eleven I lived alone in a run down apartment with no electricity and no food for three straight days. At the age of twelve I lived in a shelter home because the school system didn’t know my real social security number. I had a child at age fourteen and at age fifteen I had to work two jobs in order for my son and I to survive while growing up in the middle of a drug infested project housing. I've had to endure my sister being killed by our father’s best friend while her two-year old daughter was in the home. I had to stand by helplessly as my mom would lose her fight with substance abuse and endure my father walking out my life for more than 15 years.My final awakening was surviving a brutal stabbing from a neighborhood street fight that would have kept me from sharing my life story of outlasting my opponents. My opponents in life consisted of poverty, loneliness, disappointment, jealously, and lack of equal educational opportunities. But like I learned in sports, life is about how bad do you want to win. How much time will you be willing to put into making your dreams become a reality? How much are you willing to sacrifice now for your success later. I have won on every level of basketball but my biggest accomplishments are being a good father, a good person, and a great child of God. I’m just getting warmed up to win my last championship, and to bring home the best trophy ever….. My Legacy! I named this book “STAMINA” because everyone has come to a point of giving up or in a situation right before we were able to win in life.Don’t let someone’s opinion about you become your reality. Don’t let fatigue defeat you and make sure you have STAMINA to be a Champion in life.

He has been featured on NBC’s “The World’s Most Dangerous Magic II”, “Entertainment Tonight”, ”New York Today”, “FOX & Friends”, “The Bold and the Beautiful”, “Crook & Chase”, and “The Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon”. He has also appeared on radio stations across the country, including several nationally syndicated broadcasts. In addition, Michael has created and developed custom presentations major corporations including Hewlett Packard, Grainger, Mazda, Harley Davidson, and Bayer and has designed original illusions for national and international film, television, and stage productions.With a true passion for amazing audiences, Michael has performed at Heinz Hall with three time Oscar-winning composer Marvin Hamlisch and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Grand Central Station and the Javits Center in New York City, John Paul Jones Arena in Virginia, the Cerritos Center For The Performing Arts in Los Angeles, Navy Pier in Chicago, the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Resort in Connecticut, the Fairmont Orchid Resort in Hawaii, and on the red carpet of ESPN’s ESPY Awards held at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood. Michael was also honored to be a featured performer at the White House Easter Celebration.Michael recently performed an NFL halftime show at Bank of America Stadium for the Carolina Panthers game against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants. During the event, a live audience of over 73,000 people had a 360-degree view of the magic as Michael caused people to appear, vanish, shrink in size, and levitate 10ft into the air, right on the 50 yard line. This was Michael’s third major stadium appearance.When the World Series champion Philadelphia Phillies invited Michael to open one of their home games at Citizens Bank Park, he designed and created several brand new illusions including making the 7ft, 300lb Phillies mascot, The Phanatic, instantly appear in the outfield, teleporting selected Phillies items from one side of the field to the other, causing 200 baseballs to suddenly fill a once empty equipment crate, and levitating 10ft over the pitcher’s mound to reach the game ball. The show also featured one of the largest live interactive illusions in history as Michael read the minds of all 45,000 people in the stadium at the same time.For the Sky Show at Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium, Michael created a special performance that blended pyrotechnics, grand illusion, high-definition video, and a choreographed musical score to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Kansas City Royals World Series Championship. In addition, the event featured the iconic Kauffman Stadium fountains and CrownVision – the largest HD video board in baseball. The show was performed in front of a live audience of 40,000 people, including several Hall of Fame players.Michael Grandinetti has come a long way since he received his first magic set for Christmas at the age of 5. When he was just 16, Michael designed and performed his first large-scale illusion when he caused a girl to vanish from the middle of an open football field and reappear in the stands among the astonished audience for his high school’s football halftime shows. At 20, Michael created and produced his own two-hour show at Pittsburgh’s historic Byham Theater. During the performance, a sold-out crowd of twelve-hundred people watched in amazement as Michael transformed fire into a 500 lb Harley-Davidson motorcycle appear in mid-air, brought a painting of a beautiful woman to life, and levitated on the point of a razor sharp sword. That same year, Michael was honored to receive the City of Pittsburgh’s “All-Star Achievement Award”, given to those who have carved positive and noteworthy paths in their industry.Michael’s personality and style were introduced to the world when he performed his original creation “The Spike Tower” on the NBC television special “The World’s Most Dangerous Magic II”. While covered with a mixture of gasoline and kerosene and secured by chains, Michael had only sixty seconds to escape before two walls of flaming steel spikes were thrust towards him at over 50mph. Bringing together seven of the world’s top illusionists, Michael was the youngest performer on the show.This past year, Michael combined the worlds of magic and music when he created a special performance for the Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra. During the show, while the orchestra played musical selections specially themed for each illusion, Michael magically transformed a tuxedo into the orchestra’s conductor, made roses bloom and levitate on the stage, and, for the show’s finale, caused the orchestra itself to read the minds of the audience and play songs only thought of.When ABC Family wanted to promote their “World Magic Awards” television special, Michael was contacted to create and stage spectacular live demonstrations throughout New York City. During the event, passersby watched in amazement as Michael levitated a woman while completely surrounded at various locations including Columbus Circle, Grand Army Plaza, and Grand Central Station. As a tribute to one of magic’s legendary performers, Doug Henning, Michael repeated the illusion using Doug’s original equipment, this time levitating actress Rachelle Wells high above the beach in Santa Monica, California.Michael’s other live performances include over 100 shows at the world-famous Magic Castle (one of the few performers to headline in all five showrooms), CBS Television’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular and the Woman of Valor Gala in Beverly Hills with celebrity organizers including Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman, and Jamie Lee Curtis.

Nik Wallenda Balance The Line
Nik Wallenda: King of the High WireOn June 15, 2012, high wire artist Nik Wallenda joined the ranks of legendary daredevils when he became the first person ever to walk across the roaring Niagara Falls on a two-inch steel wire. The historic event was broadcast live by ABC to an audience reaching 13.3 million Americans, garnering the highest rating for a non-sports broadcast of any network in six years.The heart-pounding event took two years of strategic planning which included geological surveys, engineering feats and political lobbying of U.S. and Canadian officials to change laws in both countries that, for the past 116 years, banned daredevil stunts at Niagara Falls. Prior to the ban, other wire walkers had crossed the Niagara River including one who lost his life, but no one until Nik Wallenda had ever attempted to cross Horseshoe Falls, 200 feet up and 1550 feet across, where the raging waters rush downward at more than 600,000 gallons per second.After battling wind swells and dangerously thick mist, Wallenda completed his walk in just 25 minutes during which viewers could hear his repetition of prayers. In one truly electrifying moment as he approached the Canadian side on the wire he paused, then bowed to the crowd on bended knee raising a victory fist to acknowledge over 120,000 cheering fans who had waited for him in the rain. Wallenda then sprinted to safe ground and after embracing his wife and family, he was approached by Canadian customs agents who asked him for his passport. "What is the purpose of your trip sir?" the agent asked. "To inspire people around the world to follow their dreams and never give up," Wallenda said, turning over the passport he carried with him in a waterproof bag. Nik Wallenda is the seventh generation of Great Wallendas who trace their roots back to the Austro-Hungarian empire in 1780. For Nik, every walk is an expression of honor to his great grandfather, the legendary Karl Wallenda who brought the Wallendas to America for The Greatest Show on Earth. During the depression era, his crowning achievement was the seven-person chair pyramid: four men standing on a wire as two pairs with two more men standing on their shoulder bars holding a woman sitting, then standing on a chair at the top of the pyramid. The Wallendas successfully performed it for decades until January 30,1962 when, in Detroit, the front man on the wire faltered and three men fell to the ground, two to their deaths.Karl Wallenda’s son was paralyzed. Karl continued performing "Sky Walks," walking between buildings and across stadiums, including Busch, Veterans, JFK, 3 Rivers Stadiums and the Astrodome, among others. His most famous walk was a 1200-foot long trek across the Tallulah Falls Gorge in Georgia, where 30,000 people watched as the 65-year-old legend performed two separate headstands at a height of over 700 feet in the air. Sadly, during a high wire walk in San Juan, Puerto Rico in March 1978, Karl Wallenda, age 73, fell to his death. It was not because of his age, capabilities, or the wind that day, but because of bad rigging, a reason Nik Wallenda and his father always oversee every inch of rigging themselves. Nik Wallenda was “performing” on a high wire before he was born; his mother, Delilah Wallenda, was still walking the high wire six months pregnant with him. Nik’s official first performance was in 1981 at age 2 as a tiny clown carried around in a pillow case. He also began walking the wire that same year but was not permitted to perform professionally on a high wire until age 13. In 2001, he set his first world record in Kurashiki, Japan for the 4 layer 8 person pyramid on a high wire. On June 4, 2011, Nik Wallenda successfully completed the high wire walk in San Juan that his grandfather had never completed -- a 135-foot-long high-wire crossing between the two towers of the ten-story Condado Plaza Hotel. Stunning the crowd, Wallenda's mother, Delilah joined him on the high wire, mother and son starting at opposite ends.When Delilah reached the middle of the wire, roughly the spot Karl had fallen, she sat down on the wire and Nik stepped over her before the two continued to opposite ends of the wire. Before finishing, Nik knelt down on the wire and blew a kiss in honor of his great-grandfather's memory. After the feat, Wallenda said he was "not scared at all," but admitted that the circumstances of Karl's death had haunted him for years. "To be able to walk in his exact footsteps is an extremely huge honor, and I did this for him as much as I did it for my family to get some closure." Perhaps not for everyone. Immediately after the Niagara Falls high wire walk, Nik phoned his grandmother, Karl Wallenda’s daughter who had told him she was too frightened to watch. The Niagara Falls walk marks Nik Wallenda’s seventh world record, including one for the highest and longest bike ride on a wire which he performed from Newark, N.J. live on NBC’s Today Show October 15, 2008.By his side throughout is the beautiful Erendira, the high energy circus performer he married after his 1999 proposal from the high wire, on bended knee in front of 18,000 in Montreal, Canada. Erendira is also circus royalty. On her mother’s side, she is the eighth generation of the Ashtons of Australia, the third oldest circus family in the world. On her father’s side, she is the seventh generation of the Vazquez trapeze artists from Mexico, known worldwide as the first to successfully complete the quadruple somersault. Nik and Erendira have three children: Yanni, Amadaos and Evita who, remarkably, have DNA passed down from 25 generations of circus performers. Up next, Nik Wallenda is in the advanced planning stages of a death-defying wire walk across the Grand Canyon (with permits already secured.) In the meantime, he continues performing daredevil stunts around the world, without any safety devices, on the high wire, the “wheel of death,” hanging by his jaw from a helicopter and more.http://nikwallenda.com/

Life is full of opportunity even of you can't see it.Date / Time: 3/13/2012 10:00 PM EasternFor more information please check Jill Kelly's Websites www.jillk.org, www.huntershope.orgA seasoned writer, Jill Kelly has authored four books and served as a featured columnist for a Western New York Christian news publication. Her first book, Messages of Hope, is an anthology of the articles she penned for the newspaper. Like pieces of her heart, every sentence was written from a place where God was willing to reveal Himself to her as she struggled to care for her dying son.Jill writes with a tenderness and candor that has served her and her readers well in laying her soul bare on the page. Through deeply personal journal entries, she has written, Prayers for Those Who Grieve and Prayers of Hope for the Brokenhearted, sharing her most intimate struggles through the loss of her son, Hunter, and the many painful experiences that followed along her path of healing.Her unique journey through life has been forever memorialized in Without a Word, How a Boy’s Unspoken Love Changed Everything, a memoir of hope and healing that shares the story of her son, Hunter’s, incredible impact on their family. The deeply human narrative chronicles the dramatic way God rescued the Kelly family and revealed Himself through the suffering of their son, turning their hearts to the suffering of His Son - and ultimately restoring their love.“Oddly, I have been writing for years…in my journals. Never did I ever think that God would allow my writings to touch people in the way they have,” Jill recalls. “I’m humbled and grateful though I will never fully comprehend why God chooses to use broken vessels, like me, to reveal His heart.”“I’m passionate about the Word of God and can’t live without it,” she continues. “Truly, the more I hide it in my heart the more it fills the words I speak and put on paper. The written word is a powerful tool; yet without His love and grace in every line and letter, what is penned can’t possibly change a heart or life. My words are meaningless without the story of who God is woven throughout. Ultimately, it’s what’s left unsaid that has the deeper, everlasting impact.”
