Love without possessing, live without depending By Yoram Yasur Rubin.

Yoram Yasur Rubin :The greatest sign of love is to let the person you love be yourself. It is also a huge sign of maturity. And it is very difficult to achieve since our society has “programmed” us for possession. In a culture where more people are worth more, it is difficult for us not to extrapolate that concept to interpersonal relationships. Then we become possessive.

The origin of possessiveness lies in the fear of loss:

Yoram Yasur Rubin : We hardly have anything, we hardly feel that something is ours, we are afraid of losing it. And the more we cling to that possession or the more we love the person, the greater is that fear.

Yoram Yasur Rubin : In many cases that fear of loss goes back to past experiences, especially childhood, that left painful scars on our brains. It has been found that people who have suffered losses in childhood or those who have not received enough attention often develop an insecure attachment that leads them to depend on others or to want to control their lives. These people continually demand attention and do not want to share that special person with anyone else for fear of being “robbed” and disappear from their lives, which will make them experience the feelings of helplessness they felt as children.

Yoram Yasur Rubin : However, there may be other reasons for a person to develop that possessive relationship. In fact, possessiveness always implies insecurity and low self-esteem. Unsafe people tend to be more possessive because they are more afraid of losing what they have achieved because, deep down, they think they do not deserve it.

Yoram Yasur Rubin: “The problem is that these people, instead of analyzing where that possessiveness comes from, try to counter their fears and insecurities with more control”.

To love and let go is necessary to change our mentality:

– Do not confuse attachment with love. Possessivity usually comes from confusion: we mistakenly interpret our attachment as love. Attachment is a superficial emotion that binds us, while love is a deeper emotion that frees us. To love someone is to let them go free, to bind someone is to experience attachment. Therefore, possessiveness is a form of attachment that does not reflect love but our desire and need for control.

– Let go of the need for control. Yoram Yasur Rubin: “Possessiveness arises from insecurity, which we try to mitigate through control because it gives us the illusion of security”. However, when you realize that the control you exercise is minimal because at any moment life can snatch anything from you or anyone else, then you realize that it makes no sense to waste so much energy in vain. At that moment, a small miracle occurs: instead of striving to control, you strive to enjoy more of that person or your possessions.

– Cultivate your “I”. The emotional dependence of the other and the desire to control it arises when we feel we are unable to meet our needs. When we have a mature self, when we trust in our abilities and have connected with our emotions, possessiveness disappears, simply because we do not need it, it has no reason to be. Therefore, to love without dominating or depending, it is necessary to perform a deep inner work.

– Assume that everyone has the right to be. We do not do good to others when we impose our opinions and ways of doing. Therefore, do not fall into the error of trying to impose your way of seeing the world to “help” the other. No one is obligated to meet our expectations, so the greatest gift we can give to those we love is to let them be, and accept them unconditionally.

Flexibility to retain talent By Yoram Yasur Rubin.

Yoram Yasur Rubin : Talent management is a necessity and a challenge for companies. On the other hand, diversity, in the broadest sense, is the best antidote to conformism and a good point from which to build innovation and development.

The key is to take advantage of differences effectively. Betting on training, mentoring and, above all, flexibility is fundamental to harmonize the different typologies of employees. On the one hand, veterans often enjoy strengths of their own generation, such as a greater sense of responsibility, respect for hierarchy, willingness to work hard (repetitive or extraordinary), care, reliability, accuracy, or loyalty to the company. However, they can improve in creativity, flexibility, and willingness to work as a team.

On the other hand, the young people appreciate much more the team work, they need and require continuous feedbacks and their relationship with the technology is completely natural. They want to evolve and endure bad routines. In addition, they generally do not work very well under an overly rigid management structure. They prefer more open collaborations that allow them to share information and that everyone can contribute to decision making.

Yoram Yasur Rubin: “Younger and younger women highly appreciate flexibility. Female talent is particularly loyal to companies that reward results rather than presence, which allow a good balance between work and private life”.

In addition, it is important to stress that flexibility is an increasingly crucial motivating factor in the career of men, since motherhood and children are no longer a purely feminine fact. Most new-generation parents are no longer considered a ‘head of household’ and the responsibilities of economic livelihood are shared. Companies will be able to maintain and develop the role of women only when they also allow men to be fathers.

For organizations, it will be useful to move to a management model that provides greater flexibility to people, both in the hours and in the workplace, always obviously fulfilling the objectives. This type of approach is a powerful method for stimulating and retaining the talent of potential leaders, men and women, in rapidly changing markets.

Yoram Yasur Rubin: “Among the millennials, women are advancing a lot, are more and better educated and are entering the world of work in greater numbers than in any of the previous generations. We are facing a new era of talent, marked by empathy and flexibility, in which the ‘female model’ will be clearly dominant”.

The biggest challenge facing companies is the struggle to form, acquire and retain high-quality talent. We must cultivate inclusive cultures and strategies that foster the confidence and ambition of the young and value the veterans’ experience. In addition, with the aim of achieving gender balance which, among other things, is a good business.

Wine labels trick you By Yoram Yasur Rubin.

We think that taste is something that we perceive objectively. It is not like this. Numerous studies have shown that many factors influence the perception of taste, most of which escape our consciousness, from the intensity of the light that surrounds us to the music and even the color of the dishes.

Now new research done at the University of Adelaide suggests that the language used in the labeling of a wine bottle could be as important to your enjoyment as the taste of the beverage itself.

The taste is not only found in the taste buds:

The researchers recruited 126 people who regularly consumed wine and presented them with a selection of the three most popular white wines in Australia: Chardonnay, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc.

In the first session of tasting, they were asked to classify the taste of the wines. A week later a second session was held, but in fact the participants returned to try the same wines, first reading a very basic description, and then with a much more “elaborate and emotive” description. The trick was that people thought they were tasting six different wines, when in fact they were always the same three from the beginning.

For example, a basic description of the Riesling was “pale yellow / greenish” while a more complete description of the same wine was: “refreshing taste of lemon and lime accompanied by delicate floral jasmine aromas from a family vineyard with A knowledge of 145 years. ” In addition, it included phrases like “respect respectful to our ancestors” and “carefully elaborated with fruit collected by hand of our vineyards of the highest quality”.

Surprisingly, the more elaborate descriptions of the wines, which included information on the history of the winery and positive evaluations on the quality of the wine, made people prefer them over others. In fact, participants were 30% more likely to buy wines with elaborate descriptions.

Yoram Yasur Rubin: “The participants considered that wine was better, more delicious, and more expensive if the description included details about the history of the winery and specified its flavor in detail”. On the contrary, when those same wines were presented without descriptions, received worse critics.

Undoubtedly, when choosing the products, we look a lot at the way of presentation, description, and price, which end up influencing our perception of taste. Yoram Yasur Rubin: “We have the idea that more expensive products are better, so this belief acts as a kind of placebo effect that fools our brain and makes us think that its taste is better”.

Bunions By Yoram Yasur Rubin.

Hallux valgus, commonly known as bunions, consists of the medial or valgus deviation (toward the center of the body axis) of the head of the first metatarsal and the approach of the big toe to the rest of the toes, which may even the overlap of the first two fingers. It is the most common pathology of the forefoot, and is especially common in women between 40 and 60 years of age. They have been classically related to women’s footwear, more specifically to the distribution of pressure produced by a pointed shoe with a heel.

The forefoot is the part of the organism that supports greater mechanical strength. It not only supports the mechanical force of the weight, but also the dynamics of the movement when it pushes the person forward and receives the impact of each support. Both the friction and compression forces are absorbed by the sole of the foot and transmitted to the skeleton. Therefore, in the forefoot there are fatty bodies that are responsible for dispersing the pressures and protect the vessels and nerves of the area.

Symptoms:

Yoram Yasur Rubin: “The patient who presents a bunion usually consults for pain, difficulties to put on, or aesthetic problems. The hallux valgus juvenile is usually not painful, but it does offer disadvantages for the adaptation of the footwear, whereas the hallux valgus of the adult presents the three problems.”

Pain and swelling, which worsen with movement, are two symptoms of bunions that are located well in the area where the finger is attached to the rest of the foot, or directly on the bunion. Other times it occurs on the plantar side (below) of the joint, on the plantar side of the forefoot, or on the entire foot. The pain in the internal part usually is due to painful callosities placed on the bunion and, above all, the inflammation of the serous bag. Plantar pain is often related to joint problems, such as osteoarthritis.

When high-heeled shoes are used that force the finger in a chronically extended position, or when a hallux valgus pushes the second finger or deflects it into a hammer, the long-held extensor forces end up stretching and thinning the second- Finger, which also ends up being affected. Yoram Yasur Rubin: “These different varieties of presentation and location of pain oblige the specialist to explore not only the forefoot, but also the foot, instead of concentrating exclusively on the deformity of the first finger”.

The treatment of a bunion can be of two types: conservative or surgical.

Conservative treatment is the first therapeutic option. Analgesics and anti-inflammatories are often given to reduce symptoms. Pain and inflammation can be eliminated by avoiding shoe rubbing with the bunion itself, by modifying or changing the footwear, so that it has the wider front part, adapts to the foot, and holds it well. A patient with associated flatfoot will be treated with a template.

Shortening of the Achilles tendon can be treated by stretching exercises and even a surgical stretching of the tendon. The use of orthoses (devices that are inserted in the footwear to correct an abnormal form of walking) is very frequent, that try to avoid the articular deformation.

In addition to conservative measures, some patients require an operation. According to the intensity of the deformity, the different pathological elements and the anatomical anomalies, there are several surgical techniques. The choice of one or the other depends in general on the severity of the hallux valgus and the intermetatarsal angle. The technique chosen should correct all the factors causing the problem to be successful.

At present, two types of techniques for operating bunions can be distinguished:

Open surgery, through osteotomies, consisting of surgical modifications of parts of the bones involved for the correction of pathological angulation. They are surgeries with multiple varieties, which must be chosen based on the experience of the traumatologist and the degree of hallux valgus, age, and characteristics of the patients, and which have been perfected in recent years.

On the other hand, the cases are operated through minimally invasive surgery techniques, through the implantation of needles for the correction of the bone deviation, or by the implantation of small titanium plates united by means of sutures of specific material that correct the deviation and maintain the angle as close to normal. As you can imagine, they are less bloody operations, with a faster recovery and less discharge time, that is, foot support is performed in less time. Its realization is limited to the specific cases in which the traumatologist considers indicated.

Yoram Yasur Rubin: 6 ways you can make your menstrual pain worse

Yoram Yasur Rubin | Menstrual pains can crush your good mood and steal all your energy. You do know exactly what I’m talking about? Not wanting to go out because the cramps are killing you, being moody and down and not being comfortable in your own pants because they are so tight on your hips.

Stop planning and get in action… that´s what Yoram Yasur advices you.

Yoram Yasur Rubin: Stop planning and get in action

Yoram Yasur Rubin | If you look close enough, you will see the downcast faces of many people trapped behind a counter. In a cubicle of a swarm of offices or working on something as absorbing as unsatisfying. I get it.

There are many unattractive but necessary jobs that someone must do. However, often many people get into the dynamics of this type of jobs. And is in the limbo of the “work of passage” jobs that change frequently.

This is a call to all those “stalled” in a previous phase where. They have only planned in abstract their life. So that they effectively take the reins and fulfill their objectives.

There was a time when the goal was to stay with a job for at least five years.  Since longevity in a single job was the measure of success. But what success is there in staying with a job if it does not satisfy us?

Today the amount of time invested in a job is below the feedback. That this task brings to your life and your work expectations. And be warned: conforming does not enter the list when it is intended to act.

“We live in a world of opportunities. Literally, anything is possible. However, in the process work is inevitable since almost everything. You project will need money for its realization.

We have heard the phrases “Live your dreams” and “Never give up,”. But the deeper meaning of this is action: all dreams, plans. And goals are useless if we never act. And action is not enough either. Strategic action is the key to success”.

 

yoram yasur stop-planning-get-action

Yoram Yasur Rubin :

“Many people say they will achieve their “one day” goals or be “one day” debt free. We sat in our cubicles and talked about starting a business one day. Having more free time one of these days and even being in better physical shape also one day”.

People usually see the goal they want to achieve, but fail to act to achieve it. While there are, many different factors involved. Planning and action are the two keys that separate. The elite from the average in any area of ​​life.

Some ambitious entrepreneurs tend to see the result, get excited about it. And then lose the strength of just verbalizing it. Without taking any concrete action.

The most important key to success involves complete planning. And strategic action. Without performing the necessary steps. The probability of success of any plan is significantly less.

In his book, Do Over, Jon Acuff writes: “Dreaming is fun. Future results are fun to comment on – current efforts are not.”

There is nothing wrong with dreaming and there is nothing wrong with imagining great future results.

However, it is also necessary to temper those expectations with the amount of work that we are willing to invest in them.
