The Linden Method is one of the most popular treatments for panic attacks, general anxiety disorder, and phobias with over 80,000 users around the world. But how did the Linden Method come to be and how does it work?
The Linden Method was created in 1996 by Charles Linden, a British man who himself suffered from severe panic attacks, acute anxiety disorder and agoraphobia. Charles, who was treated for a long time by therapists and medications, but with little results, decided to study the matter himself. The Linden Method is the result of this research which included extensive interviews with patients, former sufferers, and a careful examination of common treatment practices of the time as well as relevanty scientific research.
Charles began implementing what he learned on himself and, through a gradual process, succeeded in curing himself. Charles Linden is now the MD of the Linden Center, located in Britain, in which many patients receive treatment by the Linden Method. However, the Linden Method is also available in a printed or digital form which you can download to your PC and use it at home.
How Does this method put an end to your panic attacks?
The discovery which initiated the creation of the Linden Method is that our anxiety and panic attacks are triggered by an inappropriate behavior of the Amygdala. The Amygdalal is a small organ in our brain which acts as our “Panic Switch”. It is intended to turn ‘on’ when we face real danger. In sufferers of anxiety and panic attacks, the Amygdala is turned ‘on’ on a regular basis, which means that they feel nearly constant fear and anxiety. The Linden Method teaches you how to get the Amygdala back into regular working order. It does so by teaching you how to alter your behavior and thought patterns and relies on no medication. Once you get the Amygdala under control, you’ve basically dealt with the root of the problem.
The Linden Method has a reported 96% success rate, which is impressive. However, it does have some drawbacks:
1. It’s not cheap - costs over 100$, which is still nothing compared to the cost of medication or sessions at a therapist, but still.
2. Even though Charles Linden states that when he first attempted his method on himself he felt instant relief, for many patients it takes longer. For some patients it can take a few weeks of gradual improvement (which can be frustrating at times) until they are free of panic attacks, anxiety and phobias.
3. Some people find it hard to follow DVD and audio files and need a treatment with more structure. The 1 year free consulting support which the Linden Center offers to users of this method (whether in the printed or digital version) helps a lot, but it will still require some discipline and effort on your part.
Overall, The Linden Method proved to be the solution to over 80,000 people. Perhaps it can also be the solution you seek.

One of the tasks that come with being a leader is setting goals. Goals for ourselves, to be sure, but often we need set goals for our groups/teams or the larger organization. While we may instinctively know that we should include people in the creation of goals they will be working to achieve, too often the press of time and the lure of expediency leaves leaders setting the goals, and simply sharing them with those charged with achieving them.
The Four Reasons
There are four significant reasons why we need to get others involved in creating of the group’s goals. Any one of these are reason enough to create a conversation about the goals rather than creating a PowerPoint presentation with the goals already formulated.
• To gain Agreement. There are actually two agreements you want to gain.
1. Agreement on what the goal actually is.
2. Agreement that the goal is worthwhile and beneficial.
Once you have these agreements you will increase the clarity of the goal for everyone. Goal clarity in itself has a very positive impact on ultimate goal achievement. With agreement you will increase focus on the goal as well. Take the time to create both of these agreements and you have a stronger chance of achieving the next item . . .
• To create Engagement. Notice I said engagement not buy-in. I know we all talk about wanting people to “buy-in” to our ideas and plans. And, given the choice between having people who are “bought-in” vs. people who didn’t care or disagree, I choose the former. But engagement is more than “buy-in.” When people are engaged in an idea they are committed to it. They feel ownership for it. They have thrown more than their hat into the ring, they have thrown their heart in too. Once people are engaged in the goal you can capture what comes next . . .
• To set Collective Consciousness. Have you ever noticed that after you buy a new car, you see “your” car everywhere? The reason this occurs isn’t because thousands of people followed your lead to buy the same car you did. It happens because of your Reticular Activating System. Our Reticular Activating System works as a filter helps us notice things we are focusing on or are interested in. Once people are fully engaged in a goal their subconscious mind goes to work and the Reticular Activating System helps. People will begin to see things that will be resources, methods or clues to achieving the goal. Sparks will fly between people on the team and progress may be achieved faster than could be logically expected.
• To manifest Synergy. We have people work together because we know that together we can achieve more than we can separately. This is the definition of synergy. If you prepare your goals in a vacuum and present them to the group the chance for you to achieve team synergies is virtually nil. The whole point of a group working towards a goal together is to gain synergy. If you want it, you have to let people help create the specific goals they will be directly involved in achieving.
Getting others involved in the creation of the goals is more than just a good idea. It is more than just the right thing to do. It is the most important step you can take to improve the likelihood that a goal that is set, is reached.
So when you have a goal to be achieved with the help of others, keep these four reasons in mind and make the time to create the massive benefits described here.
That time and effort is the best insurance policy you can buy to improve the chance your goals will be achieved.

You know the saying - there’s no such thing as a free lunch. And that is true for everything.
Manufacturers are offering “walk-away” fire truck leases that give you a chance to just hand the keys back if you don’t like it.
If you’d like to know why and how the manufacturer offers this option, here’s some behind the scenes information:
- The manufacturer has figured the payments out so that your truck will always be worth more than the balance. You’ll figure out you’re losing money when you try to “walk-away” and keep the truck. Or the manufacturer will try to talk you into buying a new fire truck. Read more…

While cell towers actually started being built in the late 1970’s, the boom in development did not really start until Congress passed the Telecommunications Act of 1996. Instead of having two wireless providers in any one area, customers now found that there were up to eight companies with licenses from the FCC to provide Personal Communications Service (PCS) in their area.
Initially, each wireless provider built its own towers and rarely collocated (shared) on the other’s towers. This made for rapid development of communication sites and towers and a plethora of landowners with cell towers on their property. As you can imagine, many landowners had little to base the lease negotiations on and signed agreements that were substandard in comparison to today’s lease rates. Read more…

Every company at one time or another utilizes outside consultants to help reduce costs and/or help with managing specific projects. Telecommunications is an area where consultants can not only help your company reduce expenses, but also provide ongoing support as your company grows and your telecom needs change.
Deciding on which consulting firm to bring on board can be tricky. The choices are vast. Most firms are reputable, but the industry is chocked full of “fly by night” firms looking to make a quick buck by conducting inadequate telecom audits and/or hawking telecom services under the guise of being a “telecom consulting” firm. Before you decide on which company to go with, arm yourself with the following questions that will help sort the good from the bad. Read more…

The IRS defines goodwill as “the value of a trade or business based on expected continued customer patronage due to its name, reputation, or any other factor.” IRS Publication 535: Business Expenses, Ch. 9, Cat. No.15065Z.
The American Society of Appraisers defines goodwill as: “that intangible asset arising as a result of name, reputation, customer loyalty, location, products, and similar factors not separately identified.” And as “that intangible asset arising as a result of elements such as name, reputation, customer loyalty, location, products, and related factors not separately identified and quantified.”
Goodwill, however, can be separated into personal and business (enterprise) goodwill. Unlike enterprise goodwill, personal goodwill is the intrinsic value of services of a specific and identifiable person to a business. Read more…

MySpace codes are used for fine-tuning the appearance apart from the functionality of your profile. In addition, they largely help improve your page navigation. It may be quite an easy task for anyone to add a piece of MySpace code into her profile but the trouble is plenty of new MySpace layouts’ codes that are being added every day which makes her task heavy. You would get the enormity of the picture when you search for MySpace codes and the number of results Google returns happens to be over 15 millions.
