A Guide For Creative Thinking

Thu Sep 17, 2009 3:12 am by BHSoft

A Guide For Creative Thinking by Brian Tracy
Einstein once said, “Every child is born a genius.” But the reason why most people do not function at genius levels is because they are not aware of how creative and smart they really are.I call it the “Schwarzenegger effect.” No one would look at a person such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and think how lucky he is to have been born with such …

    London Chocolate Week
    Yvonne: Hello, I'm Yvonne Archer and this is London Life from bbclearningenglish.com
    [b]Now don't get me wrong,chocolate's great but I seem to be one of the few people who can live without it. Here are some of the reactions I got about the news of London ChocolateWeek. It seems that chocolate may be magical – so try to catch the specialchocolate term that one person uses to describe herself and her family!
    Oh I think that's a great idea to have a chocolate week – ooh that's very nice! I mean I like chocolate, I don't absolutelyadore it but I do, I have to say I'm very fond of it.
    I do like chocolate, I could say I love chocolate. Oh I love chocolate, especially very, very dark chocolate –very expensive chocolate – I love it. I come from a family of chocoholics.
    [b]Yvonne: Cath's from a family of 'chocoholics' – a whole family of people who are addicted to chocolate! So they must have it – and they reallycan’t do without it.
    Cath enjoys very, very dark chocolate – so chocolate that's made with lots of cocoa and that reminded mehow much I enjoy the odd bit of white chocolate… chocolate with just a littlebit of cocoa. So what's Nuala's reaction to that?
    Nuala Ooh no, oooh - I hate white chocolate. Ooh, it just gives me the creeps. No, I have to lick my teeth justto get the taste away.
    Yvonne: No white chocolate for Nuala's birthday then! She hates it so much that it gives her 'the creeps' – it gives her a very unpleasant feelingwhen it's in her mouth.
    Nuala says she has to ‘lick her teeth’ after eating white chocolate – rub her tongue over her teeth to take the taste away as quickly as possible. Oh well, more for me then!
    Mark du Market, a chocolatier –a chocolate maker – explains what he thinks are the best chocolates. Listen out for how they're made and for a very special ingredient that can't be grown orbought…
    Mark du Market I would say it's the hand-made chocolate using the best beans and ask your chocolatiers, where do you sourceyour chocolates from? You don't just want to look at the percentage; you wantto see that the beans are of good quality and that there's passion behind it.
    Yvonne: Mark thinks that the best chocolates are made by hand rather than by a machine.
    He says we should ask our chocolatiers where the cocoa beans come from – as he put, where they 'source'the beans – as well as how much is used in the chocolate. So, is there a highpercentage of cocoa in the chocolate? But did you also notice that Mark saysthere should be 'passion' behind making chocolates?So the best chocolates are made by people who love making them.
    The ancient Aztecs from South America discovered chocolate and thought of the cocoa tree as a source ofwealth and strength. They used the beans like money but also crushed them andmixed them with spices to make a type of bitter- tasting hot chocolate drink.So it was very different to the sweet hot chocolate that we enjoy today.But that's history and London Chocolate Week is all about what's new in the world of chocolate. So have ourfriends made any recent discoveries? Try to catch the different types ofchocolate they mention:
    My favourites I think are orange dark chocolate and I also really like butterscotch chocolate.
    Pepper and chocolate – wonderful combination – delicious. Cadmium tastes really nice, lavender tastes very good,rosemary, thyme, oregano…I think organic chocolate is something that's quite new and that seems to be very delicious.
    Yvonne: Well, as delicious as organic, fruity or even herb flavoured chocolates are, people still feel as though they shouldn't eat it?Try to catch the three main reasons why…
    Chocolate is not very good to me. Not only does it make me put on weight and is bad for my teeth but it also,and believe it or not and I'm a man in my 50s - but I still get spots when Ieat chocolate.
    Well I suppose because it's fattening and I suppose people do say it's quite good for you. They say it's good for the heart andgood for the blood but I suppose I do still have in the back of my mind thatit's a bit too indulgent and I shouldn't really be doing it.
    Yvonne: Do you also find chocolate 'too indulgent' – it's so enjoyable that you sometimes you eat more of it than is good for you? And didyou catch the three main reasons why Kaz and Cath try not to eat too muchchocolate? We heard how it makes them 'put on weight' - 'it's fattening'. Wealso heard how it's bad for our teeth – because chocolate is made with lots ofsugar. And poor Kaz says that chocolate still gives him spots – something thatmainly young people get!
    But somehow, I doubt that Kaz or Cath will ever stop eating their beloved chocolate.So here's some good news: there are scientific reports which say that eating chocolate is good for the heartand that the husk of the beans – that’s the shell that covers each bean - mightbe good for cleaning our teeth!
