Our greatest strength as human beings is our ability to make a difference in the lives of other people, and yet it is the most unemployed of all human abilities.

Francis of Assisi encouraged his listeners in this way: “First do what is necessary, then do what is possible, and before long you will find yourself doing the impossible.”

After all we cannot become our best selves without helping others to do the same. ...

The two are inseparably intertwined.

We are all her to make the world a better place.

Set yourself up to win 💫

It is not the critic who counts.

The person in action.

The one who inspire.

The one who make others go all in on their dream.

The one that sets souls on fire.

The one that make you aim higher.

The one that make you alive and kicking.

The one that makes you dare.

Dare to live greatly.

Let's all aspire to lift each other higher, all the way up where we in fact all belong.

// IMPORTANCE OF TEAM WORK // Below, Viktoriya filmed a 14 hour reconstructive surgery led by a young plastic surgeon and our very good friend, Dr. Faisl, where we work at the Department of Surgery. Despite any obstacles that can occur, a team who trusts and communicates with their leader and one another, is more likely able to successfully find a solution to any given problem. Even if you suspect that you don’t have the resources to do the things you need to do-you need to surround yourself with the ones who do. Instead of working alone, you need to be part of a team. With a right type of GUIDANCE, TEAMWORK, AND DETERMINATION a person can overcome just about anything. Teams are incredible things. No task is too great, no accomplishment too grand, no dream too far-fetched for a team. It takes a teamwork to make the dream work ;-) Just as John C. Maxwell once said: COMING TOGETHER IS A BEGINNING. KEEPING TOGETHER IS A PROCESS. WORKING TOGETHER IS SUCCESS. Tag your team below! https://viktoriyaandoksana.com/

Presenting at the Association of VA Surgeons Conferences

WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE YOUR ASSOCIATES CAREFULLY This week Oksana and I presented our research at Central Surgical Associaton (CSA) and Midwest Surgical Conferences. Only 5 out of hundreds of basic science/translation surgical researchers are invited to present at these international surgical conferences. We were among one of the very few who were invited. This is our 10th year presenting at CSA as a research group and Oksana's 5th year as a primary presenter at this particular conference. -------------------------- We choose our associates carefully and here is the reason why: We personally don’t make big decisions on our own without counsel from others we respect. Logically, wouldn’t you be more likely to make good decisions if you’re surrounded with high-level thinkers from others? We leverage the insights, experiences, and decision-making abilities of intelligent people – and select three or four to be on our personal board of directors to help us make decisions . What are the chances you'd to screw up big-time when you have the counsel of wise people in your life? Find people you can rely on and from whom you can seek counsel. This is a critical component of seeking a wisdom! The acquisition of wisdom is greatly expedited by harnessing the wisdom of others. ------------------------- People sometimes think “I don’t have the money to hire a board of directors. That’s too expensive” They miss the point. The idea is to surround yourself with wise people. It will push you to work harder, smarter, and reach your goals much faster than doing it alone. Our board of directors consists of Medical Doctors, Research Scientists, Nutritionists and Fitness Experts. We believe that the only way to reach our goals faster is to surround ourselves with people who are already where we want to be. If you're trying to eat healthier, its only logical to surround yourself with people who are already eating healthy. It's going to make you pick up their habits and accelerate the learning curve. --------------------- >> QUESTION FOR YOU: With whom might you cultivate a relationship to create your own personal board of directors? You may choose specific advisers for various areas of your life. We must become masters at knowing where to seek the appropriate counsel. List the names of potential board members and the area of your life in which they would advise you. And don’t limit yourself to the people in your inner circle. Viktoriya Oksana

Flew out to Las Vegas for a meeting with the Chief of Vascular Surgery. He is among the many MDs I know. He writes medical books and supports numerous charities by getting directly involved.

Add to this his commitments to his family and friends and the constant social demands of his profession, and you have yourself very busy man. I have known him for 7 years now, and whenever I talk to him on the phone or see him in person, our time together never ends without him asking, “W...hat can I do to help?”

At first I thought he was just being polite but over time as I have come to know him and the way he lives his live, I have learned that he lives to serve others.

He has taught me to keep perspective on my own role and responsibility as a leader.

He has planted the question in my mind and into my conversations with others.

In your day to day happenings, begin to ask yourself how can you help the people who cross your path or how you can serve in the situations presented to you.

Amazing things begin to happen when we do what we can where we are.
--------------------------
Each of us must find a way to serve. Albert Schweitzer, the French medical missionary and Nobel Peace Prize recipient of 1953, expressed the same idea: “I am certain of one thing. The only ones among us who will ever be truly happy are those of us who have sought and found a way to serve.”

The greatest shift in most of our lives will take place when we decided to make ourselves radically available to serve.

The moment that the internal dialogue moves from the question “What‘s in it for me?” to the question “how can I serve?”

How Imagination can shake the world

Make it your mission to go out and explore the world and expand your horizons, because that is where true growth, wisdom, understanding and fulfilment comes from....

Life is meant to be adventure and we must all go on our own unique journey to discover ourselves, our life purpose and our true destiny.

You never know where the journey of life will take you and you'll never know what treasure exists within you, until you open your heart and mind to exploring the world and all that life has to offer you!

I know you've set many goals and targets for 2017, but this weekend I want you to plan your next adventure, your next trip overseas or even your next road trip with your mates!

// JUST DO THE NEXT RIGHT THING //

When I feel frustrated or confused, I often call my mentor Dr. Gruber. He always ask me the same question: “So what’s going on?” Then he would give me the chance to vent a little. Once I was done, he would offer the very same simple piece of advice: “Just do the next right thing”.

He said it to me over and over again. I say it to myself over and over again. It’s amazing how quickly things can be turned around for the better if we just focus ...on doing the next right thing.

--> Maybe that means exercising, or maybe it means eating more nutrient-rich foods.

====
[+] One reason doing the next right thing can change our state so quickly is because it immediately gets us moving in the right direction of progress. And when we are making progress, we feel better about ourselves and better about life.

[+] Another reason is because when you do the right thing at this VERY MOMENT…it can be more manageable.

Days, weeks, months, and years seem like seem like eternities sometimes. For example, if you tell yourself you are not going to eat any chocolate cake for a month, you begin to obsess over it.

DON’T WORRY about next week or next month or next year.
Just do the right thing one moment at a time.

====
Whether you are struggling to overcome a pattern of defeat, just do the next right thing. You cannot think your way out or talk your way out of these problems. You must act in the sense of action.

Photo: The best thing about being invited to conferences is the OPPORTUNITY to meet other experts in the medical field and see the technology that is not even available to the public yet.

QUESTION FOR YOU:
What is the next right thing that you can do right now that will help you move closer to your goal? Who should you talk to?

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

"Failure is a blessing when it pushes us out of a cushioned seat of self-satisfaction and forces us to do something useful."

If you carefully study your own life and those of achievers whom you admire, it is an absolute certainty you will discover that your greatest opportunities often occurred during times of adversity....
It is only when faced with the possibility of failure that we are willing to deal with radical change and take the risks that lead to great success.

ACCEPTING RESPONSIBILITY #mondaymotivation

Decisions are an outward expression of our thinking.
Most people agree that their decision have guided them to where they are.

...

If you want to create a pathway to the success you have dreamed of, rather than the reality you are currently experiencing, change your thinking.

If you are in bad place physically, socially or spiritually, what does that tell you?

Think about it: Nobody sets out to fail. Nobody says, “I’m going to make every bad decision I can possibly make.”

Instead we say, “I’m going to figure this out. I’m going to do the right thing.”

If we take responsibility for where we are, THEN we can be responsible for where we’re going. By disowning responsibility for our present, we give our power away and deny ourselves an incredible future.

For example, what thoughts do you have on a regular basis that may be leading you to an unhappy physical body? Very often these thoughts take the form of defeated questions.

Such as:

“Why am I so fat?” is not a question that will help you understand what steps to take to change your situation.
However, “How can I enjoy sculpting my ideal body and reclaiming my energy?” will move you in the direction you want to go.

>> What questions do you habitually ask that are hindering your growth?

Think about it and share it with us in the comment below... if you're brave

Wishing you all an amazing and powerful week!

Viktoriya and I (Oksana) dedicated several years experimenting with the BEST combinations of fruits and veggies to achieve a good taste and a desired result.

We get emails from people who attempt to make their own green drinks…

It’s just like baking a cake. You can grab a bunch of random foods in the grocery store and whip them together, but if you don’t get the portion sizes or correct ingredients, then it’s going to taste pretty…weird.

...

So, we put the right combination of ingredients for a better taste. One is the green smoothie and another is the green juice, aka, The Incredible Hulk (@Michael Donley)

We put together these recipes available exclusively to our ViktoriyaandOksana.com Insiders. But if you comment “YES” below, we’ll PM to you as well.

// GET NEW EXPERIENCE. TRY NEW THINGS.//
Seek out experience because it is experience that builds an empire, not theory or education alone.
...
Don't be afraid to get out there and gain some real world experience because everything is just a theory until you're actually out there doing it and working in your industry or business or on your project.

It won't be your degree or the university you go to that will shape the course of your career or work, it will be your ability to connect with people and understand them and that is something you only develop by getting out there and exposing yourself to a range of people, situations and experiences.

Don't be afraid to go out there and get some experience, take on a job in an industry you know nothing about, volunteer your services to your community and start a project you are passionate about and get your hands dirty.

Try a few things, learn a few new skills and make some friends along the way. That is how you build yourself and your life on a solid foundation and it is exactly how you build your empire.

It's often the years that you spend exploring, experimenting and experiencing life that teach you the most about life and it's often those very lessons that help you to develop your craft and create truly remarkable work somewhere down the track.

My sister and I traveled to Chicago last weekend and we enjoyed this delicious acai bowl topped with sprouted raw gluten free granola, fruit, chia seeds

A smoothie bowl consists full of antioxidants, micronutrients, clean protein, fiber and super healthy fatty acids omega 3 & 6 for optimum hormonal balance and energy.

Immediately following hard training an easily digestible smoothie is the best snack to me....
The body often has trouble digesting when it's fatigued (since digestion requires energy, energy the body may not have much of after hardcore training).

When we train hard we break down muscle tissue, by nutrition we grow back stronger and younger.

When we break down muscle tissue we naturally produce human growth hormones by our nutritional choice we can speed that production up. You can easily have the exact opposite result by poor nutrition.

Food matters much more than you might just think.

Wishing all an amazing weekend full of delicious healthy food!

// WHY YOU SHOULD EAT ROOT VEGETABLES INSTEAD OF GRAINS FOR WEIGHT LOSS? //

Starchy vegetables eaten with a balanced meal can help control appetite and delay hunger cues, which is important for weight management and fighting cravings.

They also increase production of stomach acid, which is essential for proper food digestion. Strong stomach acid is also able to kill parasites, bacteria, and viruses that enter our system. Many people have low stomach acid and they don’t even ...know it. Stomach acid is weakened by eating too much processed carbohydrates.

Some of our favorites root veggies are: rutabaga, turnip, parsnip, beet, watermelon radish.

Have you had any of them before?

Did you know that an acid body environment makes you lose muscle mass and gain body fat?

Choosing Alkaline forming foods is of huge importance to your health.

The measure of acidity or alkalinity is called PH, keeping a balanced PH within the body is paramount to optimal health and peak performance.

...

If our PH drops our body becomes too acid, which affect our health on a cellular level. Low body PH leads to reduction in human growth hormone, which results in loss of muscle mass and an increase in body fat; furthermore it leads to development of kidney stones, and loss of bone mass.

All cancer patients have a very acid body environment and one of the best remedies is forming an alkaline body PH. This is done by nutrition.

How does your body become too acid to begin with? It does so through the chemicals in your environment, cigarettes, junk foods,highly processed foods, chemical energy drinks etc there is tons of chemicals in conventional production methods, pesticides and so on; a huge, not completely thought of, is prescription drugs, artificial sweeteners and synthetic supplements.

What to do to prevent an acid body environment? The answer is to consume alkaline forming foods and avoid the chemicals.

Minerals are exceptionally alkaline-forming, foods with greater nutrient density have a huge alkaline forming effect.

Even during our travels we are able to eat high quality foods such as this delicious bowl full of antioxidants, micronutrients, clean protein, fiber and super healthy fatty acids omega 3 & 6.
