The Desire to Win

Be sure to view Tony’s short trailer to The Achievers Formula:

Do you have the drive to succeed? Where does that grinding desire to come from?

Don’t confuse this with the motivation to attain and hold a job. The world’s true success stories aren’t content with that – contentment doesn’t seem to be a word in their vocabulary. This can create a lot of struggle and challenge over the course of their journey, but ultimately a lot of satisfaction is gained when they look back upon all that they have achieved over time.

The desire to win doesn’t rest or take holidays. It’s a grinding hustle that knows nothing of sick days, holidays or the normal boundaries observed by most of us. Employees rightfully advocate for a healthy work-life balance, but many driven strivers are focused more upon work-life integration – the distinction is that their sense of mission and purpose is so all-consuming that it actually becomes a part of their life wherever they go and no matter what they are doing.

What is it that pushes them on well past the breaking point when many of us will stop? It is often about legacy. We want to know that in our time here we made the very best and fullest use of the talents we have been afforded.

How can you best harness that desire to meet your own ambitions?

How To Tighten Skin (3 Best Ways)

In this video, we discuss 3 ways to tighten skin on your face.

Read more in depth about tightening your skin here:

1. Prevention
The holy grail of all skin tightening is prevention. We know, we know… this is not what we want to hear, but it’s the truth! As New York dermatologist Robert Anolik says:

“The very best way to stay youthful-looking is not to lose collagen in the first place.”

Rightfully so, as collagen is responsible for the structural support of your skin. Elastin on the other hand is what makes your skin snap back when you press it. So maintaining as much of that collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in your skin is one of the best ways of ensuring tightened skin – especially on your neck and face.

As Will Kirby, DO, FACOD says, “I don’t advocate antiaging and instead recommend the entire industry focus on skin fitness.” Yes, because there truly is NO substitute for regular:

Zero smoking
Low alcohol
And (of course) low sugar consumption
to prevent sagging skin on your face, neck and body. So if you still don’t wear sunscreen or haven’t started working out those muscles, get to slathering and pumping!

Prevention, prevention, prevention (at any age).

2. Collagen Production
But, how, you ask?… I thought prevention was the only way?$_GET Nope.

Regardless of whether you think or feel you are well past the point of prevention: The second most important method of maintaining the skin on your face and neck firm and tight is through the implementation and consistent use of an anti-aging skincare routine.

A skincare routine that involves the consistent use of anti aging products including antioxidants and cell regulators to reinforce existing collagen, and maintain your skins’ tightness will increase collagen production.

The regular use of a cell regulator containing a Retinoid such as retinol, tretinoin or any form of Vitamin A will stimulate collagen production in your skin and help overall loss of volume. As retinoids are the rare family of ingredients that dermatologists agree actually work, “we know that they stimulate collagen production and cellular regeneration,” says Fredric Brandt, a dermatologist in New York City.

Combine retinoids with antioxidants, which are especially great for preventing wrinkles and are, “one of the most powerful and beneficial ingredients for your skin and your entire body, ” Leslie Bauman M.D, and you have got yourself a powerful combination for maintaining skin tightness.

Skin tightening all the way!

3. Noninvasive and/or Invasive Procedures
No, there is nothing wrong with in clinic procedures, whether non invasive or invasive. However, it is best to stay on the course of overall skin fitness for as long as you can, as there can be side effects to any procedure.

However, for all these treatments it’s best that a detailed consultation be carried out with a dermatologist of your choice to discuss your options and create a treatment plan that is as unique as you and your face.
The bottom line: Don’t lose collagen prematurely, and once you do, or begin to (as part of the aging process) understand that yes, it will make a difference in the appearance of your skin and no, it’s not the end of the line.

Loose skin is neither a good nor a bad thing for your face and/or neck, it just is. It’s part of the process of aging, much like growing wiser is part of getting older.

However, when, and if, you choose to do something about the loss of volume on your face – understanding the different schools of thoughts and your options will go a long way in helping you make the right decisions for you. After all it is your choice and a very personal one at that.

Above all, maintain and/or begin a skin care routine that will reinforce the steps and measures you are taking in your daily life to tighten your skin, and which will ultimately provide its lasting effects.

Prince Charles Says Military-Like Marshall Plan Needed To Combat Climate Change

LONDON (Reuters) – Climate change poses such a severe threat that the world’s only option is to adopt a military-style response reminiscent of the U.S. Marshall Plan to rebuild post-war Europe, Prince Charles said on Monday.

A long-time advocate for nature, the British royal said climate change was rapidly becoming a “comprehensive catastrophe” that will dwarf the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

“At this late stage I can see no other way forward but to call for a Marshall-like plan for nature, people and planet,” Charles said in a video recorded for the launch of a week of virtual climate change events in New York.

“We must now put ourselves on a warlike footing, approaching our action from the perspective of a military-style campaign,” he said.

Prince Charles is a longtime advocate for the environment.

Scientists say the world is on track for catastrophic warming in the coming decades unless governments take rapid action to wean the global economy off fossil fuels and protect and restore forests, wetlands, peatlands and other ecosystems.

With existing commitments falling far short of the kind of transformational action scientists say is now vital, many advocates of climate action are urging governments to respond with the kind of urgency historically reserved for wartime.

While many national governments are lagging behind on climate targets, pledges by cities and companies to slash greenhouse gas emissions have roughly doubled in less than a year, with many seeking climate-friendly recoveries from the pandemic, according to a report published on Monday.

Cities and regions with a carbon footprint greater than the emissions of the United States and companies with a combined revenue of more than $11.4 trillion are now pursuing net zero emissions by the end of the century.

The majority are aiming for a zero-carbon economy by 2050, as part of a United Nations “Race to Zero” campaign, said the report by the Data-Driven EnviroLab and the NewClimate Institute think-tanks.
