Coronavirus (COVID-19) is reaching every corner of the world. It is excellent to build vaccines and spend $30,000 on treating a hospitalized patient. It is better to empower non-infected essential workers with strong internal and external PPE to reduce the ventilator-shortage in the world.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is reaching every corner of the world. Facemasks and gowns are excellent external PPE but may not be enough to protect those whose immunity and self-healing (the internal PPE) are suppressed by stress, insomnia, Yin Yang imbalance, poor self-management, or not at their optimal level due to poor health. The internal PPE means more if a person needs to serve customers in a relatively closed environment. That is why healthcare workers, flight attendants, pilots, bank tellers, and supermarket associates can be infected and die even they wear facemasks.
What makes it more challenging is that many individuals are prone to infection but asymptomatic. The average cost to treat a hospitalized patient with COVID-19 is $30,000 per a study. In fact, many individuals can restore their immunity and self-healing quickly and naturally. Some may need more time and effort, and some are better to stay at home.
Immunity is the key to defeat virus infection. Although asymptomatic, many individuals’ immune systems are suppressed by stress— 45 % of youngsters (MTV), 80% of workers (Harris), and 100% of CEOs (Vistage). Thus, they cannot protect themselves well. For example, a healthy person can suffer a severe cold after taking a stressful assignment. A vegetarian athlete can develop a heart attack. That is because work stress suppresses their immune system, so they get the disease that they usually do not.
The infamous 1918 influenza pandemic killed 20 million~ 100 million persons globally, more than World War I (WWI) did (Johnson and Mueller 2002). That is the worst mortality in history so far. One big reason was that the flu happened at the end of WWI (1914~ 1918) whole intense continuous stress suppressed many individuals’ immune systems. No antibiotic and no vaccination at that period also made the situation worse.
By April 20, 2020, California has had 33,261 COVID-19 confirmed cases, 15901 in age 18-49 group, almost twice of any other group. Although they should have the least illnesses, the age of 18-49 group often needs to meet the most challenges from work and life and suffer the worst stress. Stress’s immune suppression makes this age group prone to infection even they carefully wash their hands and avoid virus exposure.
Sleep is Critical to Self-healing
One in four Americans develops insomnia each year. About 90% of students at an EMBA program raised their hands when I asked who had insomnia under stress. During sleep, the human body repairs self and replace old cells, which is why sleep is also one of the best beauty solutions. While we sleep, our immune system can also become more robust and fight harmful substances better. However, many people cannot sleep well, especially under stress. Most people can fall into sleep within 30 minutes after their stress is depleted, and Yin Yang is more balanced, which is why we only help people do so after we are sure that they do not need to drive and have at least a few hours to sleep.
Yin Yang balance determines the environment for immunity and self-healing to play.
I first tried the natural restoration in 2012 after I worked extra hard for a while. One day, I felt fragile after I woke up. To my surprise, I also found pus on my throat (I used to be completely healthy). I knew how long it could take if I went to the ER, so I wanted to try a new way– deplete stress and restore the Yin Yang balance. I learned these technologies when I tried to recover myself from Traumatic Brain Injury, and I decided to skip needles. It worked! A few years later, the natural restoration saved more than 80% of antibiotics when I had pneumonia.
Through the natural restoration, we have reversed fast Aging, restored individuals from burnout, and enable individuals to maintain optimal performance and health. The self-healing during sleep was the additional power behind the recoveries. “Naturally” means no pill, no injection, no needle, and no surgery.
In addition to the stress suppression and insomnia, some individuals’ weak immunity and self-healing are due to chronic causes– poor diet, smoking, drunk, drug use, lack of exercise, decreased function, illnesses, etc. Age is a significant contribution to reduced immunity. For example, in New York City, although COVID-19 can infect various age groups, hospitalization and death occur much more as individuals get older.
While it is better to let the elderly and those with severe chronic illnesses to stay at home, the rest of the group can easily improve their health baseline. Many people drink, smoke, or drug to manage stress since they often do not know those healthy alternatives or better ways of problem-solving. Some people “cannot find the time” to take care of themselves. It is not hard for them to develop new habits, discover their personal value, and be excited about their life.
Many illnesses, including those chronic ones, result from partial tools. It can make a big difference by using the right experts.
Many people are used to going to the hospital after they have typical symptoms, which is called the acute stage. That works perfectly with fast-developing illnesses, such as heart attack and injury. However, most diseases take time to develop symptoms, which is called the incubation stage, where Western medicine has limited power.
Eastern medicine and the 6Q tools can do a lot during incubation. How to restore their immunity and self-healing quickly and naturally is the integration of Eastern and Western medicine. I interviewed two Police stations and found officers there succeeded via a non-medical way– they meet citizens outside of their police station with facemask and the right social distance. Their facemasks work well since they have excellent health and work in an open environment. However, hospitals, banks, airlines, and supermarkets cannot that flexible. Thus, internal PPE becomes critical to those industries.
In addition, how individuals manage themselves and how businesses manage their team can mean life or death. Some people do not seek healthcare actively after they are infected, so they die quickly due to delays. Some companies let employees 70+ work hard during COVID-19 pandemic while the fatality rate of the group is nearly 10%, which leads to more deaths. Furthermore, there are many avoidable mistakes at the hospitals, so it is important to know how to use the health system efficiently.
By utilizing the right tools to strengthen immunity and self-healing, we can stop many illnesses from progressing, include COVID-19. By managing self or their team efficiently, we can fasten recovery and minimize deaths. By using the right tools at each stage, we can solve more complex health issues, prevent disease, disability, and death, and beat skyrocketing healthcare costs.
It is excellent to build vaccine and spend $30,000 treating a hospitalized patient. It is also important to help non-infected stay healthy or recover fast.
Different person has different needs. Some people may only need a 30-minute consultation for the right direction. Some may need a 1-day training to optimize their immunity naturally and take good care of self or their team. Some may need comprehensive evaluations to achieve optimal performance and health. Some may need other tools.

Many people have been told that Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) survivors can achieve maximum recovery in 2 years (called 2-year plateau). Some people also call TBI “chronic illnesses.” THAT IS NOT TRUE as uninjured brain cells have the same DNA and can learn with no 2-year plateau. Once TBI survivors know that they can go back to who they were, many “chronic issues” can go away or be easily corrected. Many TBI survivors can pursue their freedom and opportunities again and save 80-95% of life treatment costs if they can take one more step– the 6Q cognitive restoration. The waste in TBI recovery also happens in many other health issues and contributes to today’s skyrocketing healthcare costs.
Many people have been told that Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) survivors can achieve maximum recovery in 2 years (called 2-year plateau). Some people also call TBI “chronic illnesses.” THAT IS NOT TRUE.
First, uninjured brain cells have the same DNA with no 2-year plateau, which is how I could recover myself from Traumatic Brain Injury due to an accident in 1997, pass medical license exams 2001~2003, and did excellently again at the clinics. Second, many “chronic issues” are secondary to intense insecurity and stress associated with TBI. Once TBI survivors know that they can go back to who they were, those secondary issues can go away or be easily corrected, which is my case.
I have helped every TBI survivor I met at the clinics. All of them achieved significant results beyond their 2-year plateau and resolve their “chronic issues.” I am going to share with you their stories and mine.
What Impedes the Recovery from Traumatic Brain Injury?
Both technology and human beings. While traditional technology and focus contribute to the 2-year plateau, human beings can promote, impede, or destroy innovation and recovery. Individuals can be deprived of human rights not only socially, legally, but also medically. To recover from Traumatic Brain Injury can be a typical example.
1. Life Saving and Safety Enhancement Cannot Guarantee Cognitive Restoration.
It is critical to control cranial pressure and minimize toxin release at the acute stage to save life, minimize damage, and preserve non-injured brain cells. Western medicine has achieved greatly here. Physical rehab and speech therapy further enhance individuals’ safety and restore physical function. However, another part of TBI recovery, especially cognitive restoration, happens at the chronic stage, which is not the comfort zone of the Western Medicine but Eastern medicine and the 6Q tools.
2. Focus on damaged brain cells and ignore uninjured ones.
Years of research have found that injured brain cells have 2-year plateau. However, uninjured brain cells do not have 2-year plateau but preserve the same DNA and learning capacity. Studies have also found that most people only use 10% of their brains. Many TBI survivors have at least 10% of their brain cells uninjured, therefore, they have a great chance to go back to who they were, including the ones with brain removal. Here is a story about one survivor with brain removal.
A tall and thin middle-aged man had partial brain removal due to TBI for about 10 years. His mother always accompanied him to the clinic and answered questions for him. I knew that the only way the man could speak is to practice whenever possible. I asked him to answer all the questions and told him that I had all the time I needed.
Of course, I did not have unlimited time. However, the man’s issue was straightforward, and I could always ask his mother if needed. He was very slow initially, but he answered all my questions. Then I gave him some homework and asked him to read aloud at home and tell me the homework for the next visit. As he could speak more and more, the man became more and more alive, energetic, and shinning.
3. Inefficient Cognitive Restoration
Most cognitive programs prepare TBI survivors to accept “the next level of placement” instead of going back to who they were. The low expectation somehow is associated with that they use limited IQ, behaviors or Psychology tools.
The brain rehab I went to mainly helped me not to fall or choke. Psychological support mainly let me express my fears and struggles and then advised me to accept my “new life.” These are essential but do not help a person regain his or her cognitive function and get back to who the person was. I knew I had to do the rest part on my own.
Each person is an integrated system of 6Qs: IQ, EQ, Learning Q, Adversity Q, Public Influence Q, and Health Q. Because all 6Qs are integrated, poor IQ performance can have non-IQ causes from the other 5 Qs, on which cognitive training and stimulation have limited impact. For the same reason, IQ performance can be enhanced through both IQ and non-IQ channels. Furthermore, how to learn easy is another key as the learning can be massive and challenging. TBI survivors need to see results quickly to stay motivated and continue to restore the rest cognitive function.
Attorneys often focus on making more money now instead of clients’ recovery and future. I had three attorneys in workman’s compensation as my head injury happened on my way to work. All of them wanted me to claim 100% disabilities even after I passed medical licensing exams and received excellent letters of recommendation. If people like me was 100% disable, how many are able out there? Who will trust me?
Most TBI survivors do not know their rights, not to mention to protect their rights. Some attorneys actively help their clients regain cognitive function, which is wise for both in the long run.
However, some attorneys only want to make money and disregard the future of their clients. I had the accident on my way to work in 1997, so my case was also a workman’s compensation claim. I totally had three attorneys, one of whom was the president of the workman’s compensation attorney association in one state. All three attorneys wanted me to claim 100% disabilities even after I passed medical licensing exams and received excellent letters of recommendation at the clinics. If a person who can pass medical licensing exams is 100% disabled, how many are not disable out there? Who will trust my word?
No money can buy a person’s freedom, opportunities, and credibility. It is vital to get the right attorney. Usually, it is much easier to identify bad attorneys than wrong doctors.
5. Ignorance and Resistance
People in healthcare are often very caring and understanding. However, to some “experts,” a problem is insolvable once it is insolvable to them. They refuse to believe that others can solve the problems that they cannot regardless what the reality is. They can simply label the TBI survivors with the “disabilities” that they think should be there with “their way,” take away others’ training, insist on their wrongdoing… it is astonishing and heartbreaking to watch these happening, especially when those experts are someone who you have trusted and respected.
By ignoring and resisting innovation, the above “experts” also take away the opportunities of millions of TBI survivors with the potential to pursue their freedom and opportunities again, which creates a huge burden to society as lifetime treatment can cost $85,000 to $3 million per TBI survivor. That is unethical, inhuman, and illegal. Thus, it is critical for people in healthcare, especially leaders, to have a healthy Ego, stay open to innovation, explore better solutions, and be not afraid to learn from mistakes. A healthy Ego will make it easy for them to carry the rest parts. Then healthcare can go from good to great and be cost-efficient.
Secondary Issues May Not Be Chronic or Permanent
Some people call Traumatic Brain Injury a “chronic illness” as some health issues are associated with Traumatic Brain Injury, for example, insomnia, impulse control, aggressive behaviors and low thyroid. That is not 100% correct, which you can see from the case below:
A business owner often called 911 to go to the Emergency Room (ER) to yell at doctors and nurses. His ER visits lasted for years. I happened to do a rotation in ER that day and learned he did so since he was too frustrated that he had to relearn everything. I understood him, talked to him about his progress, and share with him my live sample of success. I told him that not everyone has a chance to go back to who they were, and her at least had a chance. If I could make it, so could him.
We talked for about 10 minutes. The business owner thanked me in the end. ER nurses later told me that the ER visit was his shortest and most pleasant one. He soon went to work and never came back to the ER.
I could change his behavior in 10 minutes because his issue was related to intense insecurity and stress, secondary to TBI. Having been there, I know that nothing can be more frightening and hopeless than to lose a person’s brainpower, the inner ability to execute and protect his or her human rights to pursue freedom and opportunities. Once the business owner knew that he could regain his brainpower, it was easy to correct his aggressive behavior.
Insomnia and impulse control have been corrected for the same reason. Low thyroid and low growth hormone may also be related to depression and stress. Epilepsy and decreased sight are more structure related. We are going to explore if the 6Q cognitive restoration can help to resolve the rest “chronic health issues.” Please contact us if you or your team are interested.
How to Recover from Traumatic Brain Injury beyond the “2-Year Plateau?”
Every Step Counts!
First, it is critical to save life, minimize damage, and preserve non-injured brain cells at the acute stage. Western medicine has achieved greatly in controlling cranial pressure and minimizing toxin release. I could recover well also because the accident happened in a winter evening, so I could benefit from hypothermia instantly. The hospital at Amarillo also took good care of me and taught me the first two words, “Good morning!”
Second, Physical rehab and speech therapy can further enhance safety and restore physical function, which is the foundation of cognitive restoration.
We optimize the end results — cognitive restoration—and enhance further healing if possible.
1. Who Can Benefit from Us?
As discussed above, TBI survivors can have a great chance to go back to who they were if they have at least 10% of their brain cells uninjured. Can anyone benefit from the 6Q cognitive restoration?
No, only those who can learn and are motivated to learn.
Those with “chronic health issues” should have 6Q cognitive restoration and symptom relieves at the same time. Currently, we prefer all participants who have finished step 1 and 2.
2. How We Help TBI Survivors? What to Expect?
In general, we design custom programs per individuals’ unique needs and challenges and make learning as easy and fun as possible, for the learning can be massive, challenging, and frustrating. Also, we promote further healing through Eastern and Western medicine and the 6Q tools if possible. We want TBI survivors to see results quickly, stay motivated and continue their cognitive restoration. Read more about the program
What to expect? Many TBI survivors can show some improvement in 8 weeks if they work hard and achieve much more in 8-10 months. Complete recovery can take years. Some survivors may have unexpected discoveries, for example, I can read the stories within some music, which I had no idea before the accident.
3. Who Supports TBI Recovery Financially?
Private insurances, institutions and families are often the first payers. Many states have a TBI trust fund to help survivors learn new skills, and many TBI survivors are eligible for their state assistance. For example,
New Jersey TBI FUND
Director: Peri Nearon
11A Quakerbridge Plaza, Mercerville NJ 08625-0700
Louisiana Traumatic Head and Spinal Cord Injury Trust Fund
Manager: Tonia Gedward
LDH Office of Aging and Adult Services
Tel: (225) 219-9935
New Mexico Dept of Education- Division of Vocational Rehab
Director: Lucinda Garc
435 St. Michael’s Drive, Bidg. D, Sante Fe, NM 87505
Massachusetts Brain Injury and Statewide Specialized Community Services
Director: Sandy Biber
600 Washington Street, 2nd Floor MRL, Boston, MA 02210-1616
Other states include Kentucky, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Pennsylvania, etc. You can get the information about your state and others at “A LOOK AT TBI TRUST FUND PROGRAMS.”
Nothing can ensure individuals’ freedom and opportunities better than their brainpower, which is the truth that I have found after searching around the world, With the right tools, many TBI survivors can recover from Traumatic Brain Injury beyond the 2-year plateau and pursue their freedom and opportunities again. When one TBI survivor can return to work, society will not only have one more taxpayer but also save $85,000 to $3 million in lifetime treatment.
What limits Traumatic Brain Injury recovery also contributes to today’s skyrocketing healthcare costs. While it is excellent to search for solutions at stem cells and bio-medicine levels, like many chronic issues due to TBI, about 70% of primary clinical visits result from non-health causes, for example, heart attack, weight gain, and insomnia. Like TBI, many health issues have chronic stages, and some also have pre-illness stages, where Western medicine has limited power. Healthcare can easily become inefficient or expensive endless symptom relieves if Western medicine is used to handle non-health causes or health issues outside of the acute stage. Many institutions have begun to value Eastern medicine or use common senses or limited IQ, EQ and psychological tools to manage non-health causes. However, that is just beginning.
By targeting issues with the right tools, we can recover TBI survivors beyond the 2-year plateau, minimize other disabilities, deaths, illnesses, and beat skyrocketing’s healthcare costs. It takes everyone to achieve the goal, especially leaders in healthcare– to stay open to new ideas and innovation, be willing to explore better solutions, and be not afraid to learn from mistakes, so healthcare can go from good to great and save costs efficiently.

These days, many businesses, families and individuals suffer from skyrocketing healthcare cost. To use partial assessments and then pay for endless expensive symptom relieves is a BIG cause.
In fact, many years of treatments can become months, weeks, or even days, for example, heart attack, stroke, burnout, depression, insomnia, weight gain, etc. Individuals can stay healthy and be their best! Businesses can beat rising healthcare costs, optimize healthcare quality AND be an employer of choice! This video will show you why and how.
Welcome to The Prince Synergy. I am Bin Yang. Today, I want you to look at work, life, and health from a different angle and think differently.
These days, many businesses, families and individuals suffer from skyrocketing healthcare cost. In fact, many years of treatments can become months, weeks, or even days. Many deaths and disabilities can be reversed. First, let me share a story with you.
Case Study: Beat Setback & Failure, Stay Healthy!
Not long ago, I ran into Mr. Z at a hospital. Mr. Z was a great football player at high school and had a very successful business. Unfortunately, he lost all his money in oil market. He drank heavily ever since and developed cirrhosis and gastric mass in 2 years. When he was admitted to hospital for vomiting blood, he looked like 70 years old when he was only 42. I became the first one to discuss Adversity Quotient with him.
Did the hospitals miss anything?
The hospitals failed to address the root cause– Mr. Z’s poor Adversity Quotient (AQ). Unless his AQ could be strengthened, Mr. Z would keep on going back to the hospitals and getting worse. Healthcare would become endless symptom relieves, wasting his life and money.
I became the first one to help him rebuild his AQ. Mr. Z quit drinking in 1 week. His liver and stomach recovered rapidly in the following 4 weeks.
The world does not challenge only your strengths. However, many people handle setbacks and failures via drinking, smoking, drugs and other unhealthy means due to a poor AQ and develop various health issues.
Unless we can get to the root cause, healthcare will become endless symptom relieves, wasting life and money. Let’s go to the second case.
Case Study: Eliminate Insomnia with the Right Law
One time I had a patient who was an attorney. Because his parents left all their money to him, nothing to his sister, his sister kept on suing the family, and he had to manage. As time passed by, he developed insomnia and anxiety. He had been to other firms before he came to me and was quite familiar with standard maneuvers, such as position change.
I asked him if his family had set up a family fund. He said no. So, I told him, “Set up your family fund, so you do not have to give your 40% to Uncle Sam. Give it to your sister.” The attorney was speechless. From that day, he needed no more sleeping pills or therapies. What he needed was a right law. Once his issue was gone, his health issues disappeared.
Where Did the Success Started?
When I was doing residency, I noticed many people went to the hospitals because they could not handle the challenges outside. Usually, once I found the missing tools to meet their challenges, many got well quickly with minimum re-occurrence rates. Many years of healthcare treatments into months, weeks, or even days.
About 70% of primary clinical visits are related to stress. However, most people just keep on going back to their doctors. In fact, one big cause of stress-related health issues is the lack of the right tools to meet challenges. Each person has 6Q, IQ, EQ, Learning Q, Adversity Q, Public influence Q and Health Q. Doctors mainly fix health through medicine. Individuals usually miss some tools to other 5Qs.
Traditional education gives some tools in IQ and EQ, which mainly covers half of the human system. By finding their missing tools, we have helped many patients recover quickly, including the same day, with minimum re-occurrence. That is what we called “Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less.” Our success started at clinics in 2004 where we invented the 6Q Approach.
What is Missing in Health Risk Assessment and Biometric Screening?
Many institutions provide workers an opportunity to complete a health risk assessment and a biometric screening. (Health Risk Assessment includes questions about a person’s medical history, health status, and lifestyle. Biometric Screening focuses on risk factors such as body weight, cholesterol, blood pressure, stress, and nutrition.)
What is missing in the two assessments? They miss the impact of challenges over a person’s health. A person can suffer from heart attack and stroke even if the person is a vegetarian and an athlete and has no past and family medical history.
Beat Skyrocketing Healthcare Costs!
To use partial assessments and then pay for endless expensive symptom relieves is a BIG cause of today’s skyrocketing healthcare costs!
In fact, individuals can stay healthy, recover quickly if needed, and be their best! Businesses can beat rising healthcare costs, optimize healthcare quality AND be an employer of choice!

D R E A M & P O W E R
Healthcare costs have been soaring every year so fast that President Barack Obama once said, “By a wide margin, the biggest threat to our nation’s balance sheet is the skyrocketing cost of healthcare. It’s not even close.” In The Cost Conundrum, Dr. Atul Gawande described how some doctors at McAllen, Texas turn a population of twelve thousand dollars income per capital into one of fifteen thousand dollars per enrollee in Medicare, almost twice the national average.
The doctors’ business drive is only one internal cause. Middlemen’s profit sharing is one external cause. The non-health cause that contributes to about 70% of primary clinical visits for stress-related health issues and the limited way how businesses and individuals meet challenges and stay healthy also give those white-coat wolfs legitimate reasons and endless opportunities to suck the blood out of individuals, businesses, and economic systems. In addition, not all doctors have the best knowledge and problem-solving.
We can not only cut down healthcare costs but also improve healthcare quality and productivity at the same time. We can not only cut down today’s healthcare costs but also anticipate development needs in coming challenges, make wise investments and take early action. Our success started at the clinic in 2004 when I first invented the 6Q Approach. Here are 5 main steps.
Meet challenges with the Right Tools
A study at Toronto University Family Medicine found that 70% of their primary visits are stress related. Most stress-related health issues are directly related to the lack of the right tools to meet the challenge, relax and restore self, for example, insomnia, heart attack, diabetes, obesity, and fast aging. McAllen could have heavy drinking sixty percent higher than the national average because many individuals in that area have lower education and fewer opportunities, so they drink to achieve a fast relief. Smoking and food are other common antidepressants. Then obesity and others associated diseases follow, such as heart attack, diabetes, and hypertension.
Some doctors and hospitals do not want their patients to find their missing tool—they want their patients to keep on coming back. Some doctors indulge their patients with heart failure not to sleep and eat right so they can have “a new heart” quicker. Until individuals can find their missing tools, the same issues often keep on coming back and getting worse. Because doctors and hospitals are often paid by visits and procedures, medical treatments can become expensive and endless symptom relieves with legitimate reasons. As people go to the clinic or hospital more, more complications can emerge, which require further treatments. Heart disease is a good example.
-Limited Talent Management Also Contributes to Health Issues
The best way for talent to minimize stress-related health issues is to stay on the right track (avoid unsuitable challenges) and meet challenges with the right tools. However, people often lack the right tools to meet challenges, especially those resulted from non-IQ and non-EQ sources.
Behaviors can reflect the underlying structure in different environments but often change as environments changes. Thus, insignificant weaknesses in that environment will not surface but can impact the next project. We call the weakness Relative Weakness. The 360-degree evaluation can only collect behavior observation AFTER a person gets into the specific environment. “Shoot Burnout, Save His Job!” is a good example. Individuals with high EQ can control what others can observe at the workplace and alter 360-degree evaluation results. A 2016 Deloitte survey found that only 13% of companies believe they are building effective global leaders.
Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan, repeatedly said at top MBAs that individuals ought to take care of themselves and not to expect their company to babysitter them. However, many people cannot manage self efficiently due to poor knowledge and then develop or worsen their health issues, for example, stroke and fast aging.
Some people go to the hospital too late, which makes a small problem big, big problem impossible. One couple called 911 after their son got choked. By the time when an ambulance arrived, the boy already died as the human brain can only tolerate no oxygen for 6-7 minutes. The couple should have removed the foreign object and started CPR (cardiac pulmonary resuscitation) while waiting for the ambulance. In heart attack and stroke, the window time to dissolve the clots is only a few hours. However, many people miss the precious hours and have a feeble recovery.
Self-management can be the most difficult task in the world because of human nature and knowledge base, starting from decision-making to execution, including time management, teamwork, relaxation, restoration, etc. Many individuals miss some tools along the process, which can impede their success and destroy their health.
NOT to Rely on the Hospitals
Not every doctor and hospital has the best knowledge or keeps the best interest of their patients in mind. Some doctors only want to use their specialty to solve ALL problems. For example, a Psychiatrist wants to treat a heart attack by easing a patient’s mind, and a Surgeon likes to use a knife instead of preventive care. Some physicians have limited knowledge and creativity. Many disabilities and deaths result from improper treatments or unnecessary treatments.
In 1997, my mother and I were rear-ended in a tragic auto accident. She was put on a ventilator since she could not breathe on her own. About 5 weeks later, her doctor diagnosed that she would be ventilator-dependent for the rest of her life since she did not improve. My mom refused to live on the ventilator, so I had to be the one to discontinue her lifeline. I decided to exam her myself before I took the final step. To my surprise, I found her diaphragm was intact, which meant that she could breathe by raising and relaxing her diaphragm (abdominal breath). I taught her the new way of breathing. She got off the ventilator in three days. Later she regained her independence through both the Eastern and Western medicine.
I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury in the accident. Almost all experts predicted that I could not recover. In the meantime, we got zero compensation from the courts, including the US Supreme Court. After I cried for a whole night, I decided to recover myself and apply for a medical license. In addition to the Eastern and Western medicine, I studied hard, joined all kinds of events and tried everything I could found. Thank God, I have passed all 3 steps of medical license examinations and received many excellent letters of recommendations at the clinics.
Each person’s 6 quotients are integrated, which is why health issues can have non-health causes, and poor IQ and EQ performance can result from non-IQ and non-EQ sources. By knowing individual 6Q structures, we can anticipate when relative weaknesses will become significant, which strengthen can be irrelevant, so businesses and individuals can make wise investments.
In the meantime, healthcare issues among employees often can reflect the missing tools in leadership and talent management, for example, recruitment, talent tasking, and institutional strategy. By knowing the development needs, businesses and individuals can take early action. For more information, please visit “4 Keys to Optimizing Corporate Leadership Development” and “How to Be an Exceptional CEO?”
Here are some common mistakes.
* Using one tool for All Issues
* Stay out of their maximum comfort(aptitude) zone
* Tripped up by relative weaknesses
* Unable to utilize resources
* Run out of gas (energy)
* Inability to handle setbacks and failures
* Insufficient relaxations and restoration techniques
* Go to the hospital only for stress-related health problems.
Human work, life, and health are integrated. As long as health issues can have non-health causes, health management is NOT equal to hospital management. We cannot rely on hospitals and medicine alone to stay healthy nor use IQ, EQ, and behavior tools only to meet challenges and avoid stress-related health issues. Partial approaches only offer legitimate reasons for greedy doctors and hospitals to suck the blood out of customers and economic systems and destroy the competitiveness of businesses and nations and bankrupting millions of families.
The efficient solution is to link health management with talent management, remove the root causes of endless symptom relieves and empower individuals to participate in personal health management and utilize health resources wisely. Individuals can get well quickly, including the same day, with the minimum re-occurrence like the cases above. Businesses can optimize productivity and minimize absenteeism and healthcare costs. In addition, both can anticipate development needs, including health needs in coming challenges, make wise investments, and take early action. Solving problems around healthcare alone is inefficient. Unlike health insurance companies, businesses do not have the conflict of interests in paying for personal development.
It is time to look at the big picture, think differently and target issues with the right tools. By doing so, we can not only cut down healthcare costs but also improve healthcare quality and productivity at the same time and help more businesses become an employer of choice.

We have discussed how to build Level 5 leadership from different angles. Now we are talking about how to beat rising healthcare cost. Is there a connection between the two, looking at the hot topics below?
• Take Your Leadership to Level 5 to Get Ahead and Stay Ahead or Beat Setbacks & Failures Ahead?
• What Stops Leaders from Being Level 5?
• Should A CEO Be Charming?
• How to Retain Startup DNA?
• What Is Missing in Health Risk Assessments & Biometric Screenings?
• Why Google Behaves Differently When Beating Rising Healthcare Cost?
The issues that we try to solve all have something to do with what is missing in traditional partial approaches except they have different symptoms and emerge at various stages that often starts with decision-making and ends with healthcare. What is missing in traditional partial approaches?
• IQ and EQ tools cannot solve non-IQ and non-EQ issues efficiently, for example, adversity and self-care. Studies have found about 70% of primary clinical visits are stress-related or due to lack of the right tools to meet challenges.
• Behavior tools can observe individuals 360 degrees but cannot anticipate development and health needs. Studies found that only 13% of companies can develop global leaders efficiently.
• Healthcare is not set to find the missing tools but can provide expensive symptom relieves, and Doctors are often paid per visit or procedure. In addition, not every doctor has the best knowledge. Some do unnecessary procedures. Some try to qualify their patients for more expensive procedures quicker…
• In the meantime, most people cannot take care of self and use health system efficiently.
Without the right tools to handle non-IQ and non-EQ challenges, such as choosing the right direction, using the right people, handling setbacks, and restoring self, leaders can fail or end their journey too early.
When talent is not on the right track or does not have the right tools, they will not get the job done and take good care of self but can develop various health issues.
What is missing in leadership development and talent management gives healthcare the legitimate reason to provide endless and expensive symptom relieves, not to mention that businesses need to pay for many avoidable treatments, surgeries, emergency room visits, chronic illnesses, disabilities, and deaths.
The more people can meet challenges with the right tools, stay healthy, get well quickly if needed, the better businesses and individuals can beat rising healthcare cost. The sooner businesses can start right, the more benefits they can enjoy along with their journeys, such as Level 5 leadership, hearts and minds, smooth project completions, and healthcare saving. By working on health alone, the bills for endless and expensive symptom relieve and avoidable treatments, surgeries, disabilities, and deaths will keep on coming. High deductions and co-pays can stop some unnecessary services but can also make small problems big or impossible and hurt work performance and loyalty.

Los Angeles, CA July. 26th, 2017– The Prince Synergy (www.ThePrinceSynergy.com) announces that TPS Dream & Power (www.DreamandPower.com) will focus on beating rising healthcare costs and offer free “Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less” for 3 days (7/26-7/28/2018).
When asked about the focus, Bin Yang, the 6Q Approach Inventor and Managing Director of The Prince Synergy, said, “The skyrocketing cost of healthcare has threatened almost every business, family, and individual. Big co-pays and deductions cannot save efficiently but backfire. The key is to minimize endless and expensive symptom relief, unnecessary emergency room (ER) visits, and utilize healthcare efficiently. Businesses and individuals can not only save years of healthcare costs but also improve healthcare quality and productivity. These only take 1/3-1/2 of their one-year healthcare cost to set up. Our success started at the clinic in 2004. It is time to look at the big picture and think differently!”
Studies found about 70% of primary clinical visits are stress-related (emerge or worsen under stress), for example, heart attack, stroke, insomnia, burnout, diabetes and obesity. The leading cause of stress is the lack of the right tool(s) to meet challenges, relax and restore self. To find the missing tool(s) BESIDES relieving symptoms is the key to minimize the 70% visits. Otherwise, businesses and individuals need to pay endless and expensive symptom relieves, including ER visits, BECAUSE HOSPITALS ARE NOT set to find the missing tools. You can find case studies in this video:
In addition to unnecessary ER visits, many chronic illnesses, disabilities, and deaths can be avoided if individuals can learn how to utilize healthcare system and recognize unethical and poor doctors efficiently. How Ms. Yang recovered her mother and herself are two good examples.
TPS Dream & Power provides what is missing in traditional approaches: healthcare cannot handle non-health causes, many people treat healthcare as hospital care, and traditional IQ, EQ and behavior tools alone have limited power over non-IQ and non-EQ issues and cannot avoid stress-related health issues (SRHI) efficiently. TPS Dream & Power empower leaders, managers, and elites based on the mistakes found at the clinics and businesses as well as efficient ways to meet challenges, stay healthy and bring the best performance.
“Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less” is one diagnostic program, helping individuals with SRHI find the missing tools to meet their current challenges. Individuals often get well quickly with minimum re-occurrence and require no or fewer follow-up clinical visits and associated drug, treatments, time and money. TPS Dream & Power also helps clients build smart systems, anticipate development needs, especially health needs, and get ready quickly for their upcoming challenges. TPS Dream & Power loves feedback and new ideas and will continue challenging status quo and perfecting its services.

Many people do not understand why CEO stress has anything to do with CEO health. In fact, the two are closely connected.
Recently, the health of Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple, has raised a national discussion. Many people think that his health is not his private matter because so many others depend upon him. Some even have raised a stock security issue. Forbes has pointed out that the Apple CEO turned to cancer removal surgery eight months after the diagnosis. Would there be less unfortunate issues to begin with if leaders could take better care of themselves?
When talking about how to be a CEO, people usually do not think about sustainability at times of unexpected change, intense stress, illness or injury. Unfortunately, life is full of unexpected challenges, which can disable our mind, or even take away our success. It takes a different set of skills to sustain our optimal creativity and health than to utilize them. It is important to have both. An unfortunate outcome affects not only the key person, but also his/her family, partners, colleagues, employees and more.
People tend to count on doctors for their health. However, how we handle illnesses before and after seeing doctors can mean life or death, recovery or disability. Although I had excellent medical training, I could have lost my mother had I not questioned the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) physicians after a tragic auto-accident. My mother suffered a cervical-2 fracture. Even after five weeks of intensive care, she could not get off of the ventilator. Her ICU physicians “concluded” that she would be ventilator-dependent for the rest of her life. My mother refused to live on a machine. I never doubted the ICU physicians. But at the last moment, I chose to do my own assessment and found that she did not breathe efficiently. Through a new way of breathing I taught her, my mother was taken off the ventilator successfully after only three days!
In another example, a prestigious rehab center had some very well known experts in Traumatic brain injury (TBI). These experts concluded that the poor impulse control secondary to TBI was incurable since they could not find the cure. A resident physician with a history of TBI had one unfortunate incident. These experts linked the incident with her past injury, and concluded that she had a poor impulse control and could not handle stress. They took away her residency training at the last minute even through her references from clinical training prior were excellent. Instead of telling her their reasoning, they told her something else, which has caused her a huge waste of time and money. In fact, the victim had found a way to correct the impulse control. But to these experts, if they could not find the cure, no one could! And they abandoned their own victim when their support was needed most!
Not everyone needs to go to medical school. However, we need general and systemic health knowledge about ourselves and different health systems, for example, what costly health mistakes to avoid, and how to select specialists. We need to stay in charge, especially when it is a matter of life or death, recovery or disability. A part of our 4-day Executive Synergy Program provides hands-on training in this area.
According to a survey of Vistage (an international organization for CEOs), 100 percent of 2,400 participating CEOs are suffering stress. CEO stress can come from external sources, like an uncertain economy. CEO stress can also come from our body and mind, such as the examples described above. Stress, while a great motivator, can disable our thinking and creativity, which are the keys to leadership. Stress can also harm our health and emotions. To some extend, a par of how to be a CEO is how to manage CEO stress. An exceptional CEO usually manages stress at another level.
Stress management to many people is limited relaxation exercises, such as deep breathing, brisk walking, meditation, Yoga and breaks. These are not enough to handle intense CEO stress. We need to build up our personal relaxation hierarchies, which are the right tools for the right levels of stress. At The Prince Synergy, we call it “overarmed.” We need a clear mind to look into underlying causes and figure out solutions. Different people need different relaxation hierarchies.
Another common definition of stress management is “coping with stress” and “positive thinking.” We don’t have to “live with stress.” We can prevent, utilize, reduce and transform stress. We can manage stress in many ways, business, medical, legal or even “technical” ways. A CEO suffered newly onset insomnia due to insecurities of her business. None of her relaxation methods or sleeping pills worked. Sleep is very important to productivity and wellness. She could not have a real sense of security until her business thrived, which could take time. However, she could use her faith as “the sense of security” by placing it into her unconscious level. Afterward, she has been sleeping like a log every night. In addition to faith, law can also help to eliminate stress and subsequent insomnia.
Strong stress management training is even more important at times of extreme crisis, where the level of stress is highest. Some CEOs tend to check themselves into the hospital. I had a crisis in 2007, and started crisis management immediately. I used my relaxation hierarchy to keep a clear mind, and in the meantime, kept telling myself that the crisis was not the end of the world. Instead of spending time in the hospital, I worked on my solution to turn the crisis into an opportunity the same night.
Our beliefs, perceptions, standards, visions and expectations can also affect the outcome. The cases of my mother and the rehab center are also good examples of blindly following authority figures (such as the ICU physicians) and assumptions.
How well do you manage stress? Take a quick assessment
What we can see in society and ourselves determines how we act and what we can achieve. I did not value Eastern medicine i at medical school. After being through family injuries and personal challenges, I have appreciated its recovery and relaxation power more and more. I sometimes acupuncture myself and pick up my own herb tea for certain types of tiredness and stress. I did not know about the internet or computers in high school. What I want and can do today is different fr om what was possible back then. There are many ways to sustain our optimal levels. We won’t “see” them until we can open to them.
How we act can also affect our health and potential profoundly. A star athlete from Fargo High School joined Stanford on a four-year football scholarship. After he ran into bigger and meaner competitors, he chose to focus upon his economics major. He has since built a multi-billion-dollar investment bank. What if he had chosen steroid for temporary gain, or used drugs for temporary high like many others? He would have to face more problems down the road, such as systemic injuries or issues related to addictions.
Our mind, body and stress management are one integrated system. We can be limited internally and externally. The limitations can lead to stress issues in business and health if we do not take care them efficiently. We can and need to, utilize our full internal and external resources efficiently, and prosper in business and life. Leaders should not settle with how to be a CEO, but how to be an exceptional CEO.
In summary, the skills to utilize our creativity and health and to lead are different from those to sustain the potential from unexpected change, intense stress, costly health mistakes and injury. In this age of intense competition, CEOs need these skills to stay at their optimal level and save subsequent agony from CEO stress. “Deal with Stress, Be Healthy & Happy” can identify your “missing software,” teach what you need in just a few days and help you build a firewall for your leadership. This is not only about how to be a CEO, one key individual, but also about your family, partners, colleagues, employees and more.

Fulfill Your Dream with Power, Beat Stress-related health Issues,
Many people desire to Be YOur Best & Stay Healthy.” The video below will show you with case studies why traditional education and career management cannot help you be your best efficiently but contribute to stress-related health issues, and how to find your missing tools and fulfill your dream with power. If like to know how well you do, take a free “Mini Be Your Best Quiz:”
Today, I want you to look at work, life, and health from a different angle and think differently.
Most people, from the CEOs at the Fortune 500 companies to students at universities, know if you work too hard, if something happens, you do not feel well or feel worse, rush to the hospital. That is a correct approach. However, if you only go to the hospital, most likely the same issue will keep coming back and getting worse. Why? Because you still missed the tools to meet the challenges. Many health issues emerge or get worse under stress, called stress-related health issues. They count for about 70% of primary clinical visits. We set up Dream & Power to enable people like you to be your best and stay healthy efficiently.
I first helped people deal with stress and stay healthy during my residency. I noticed that, usually, once I found their missing tools, many got well quickly, including the same day. Their re-occurrence rates were minimum. That is how I invented the 6Q whole system approach. Let’s have a case study.
Case Study 1: Eliminate Insomnia with the Right Law
One time I had a patient who was an attorney. Because his parents left all their money to him, nothing to his sister, his sister kept on suing the family, and he had to manage. As time passed by, he developed insomnia and anxiety. He had been to other firms before he came to me and was quite familiar with standard maneuvers, such as position change. I asked him if his family had set up a family fund. He said no. So, I told him, “Set up your family fund, so you do not have to give your 40% to Uncle Sam. Give it to your sister.” The attorney was speechless. From that day, he needed no more sleeping pills or therapies. What he needed was a right law. Once his issue was gone, his health issues disappeared.
Not all health issues are like the attorney’s insomnia. Still, meeting challenges with the right tools is critical.
Case Study 2: Beat Heart Disease
Most people know CPR. Now a person with heart disease is saved and ready to go back to work. What will happen if he cannot meet the next challenge? The person will collapse again, right?
What if we can identify the skills he needs and make learning easy and fast? What if we can also evaluate if he is on the right track and help him avoid unsuitable challenges? Can he achieve his goal easier and quicker with fewer or no health issues? Of course, he can. Our success started at clinics in 2004.
Each person has 6Q, IQ, EQ, Learning Q, Adversity Q, Public influence Q and Health Q. Doctors and hospitals mainly fix health through medicine. However, individuals also need the other 5Qs to meet their challenges, which are beyond Medicine. No one tool can solve all issues. Issues with any of these Qs, especially Adversity Q, can crash a person, and then the challenge-collapse-hospital cycle repeats, medical treatments become endless and expensive symptom relief, which only benefit some doctors and hospitals.
– Heart Cath: $7,000-11,300
– Heart Stent: $11,000-41,000
– Heart Bypass: $70,000-200,000
– Heart Transplant: $780,000- 1,200,000
The Impact of Traditional Education and Career Management
There are many other stress-related health issues, for example, burnout, headache, ulcer, stroke, fast aging, weight gain, diabetes, fibromyalgia, etc. Any health issue that emerges or gets worse under stress is stress-related.
Most people miss a few tools to meet their challenges, including self-management. Besides, poor IQ and poor EQ can result from non-IQ and non-EQ sources where IQ, EQ, and behavior tools have limited power. Then many “tough issues” in leadership & performance are created. As the world is changing fast and more “hard issues” surface, healthcare costs continue soaring every year. Besides, not every doctor and hospital want their patients to find their missing tools due to the conflict of interest.
We have reviewed that each person has 6Qs and hospitals mainly cover a part of health management. Individuals usually miss some tools in the other 5Q, including self-management, for example, relaxation and energy restoration. If we empower people with their missing tools, they should achieve their goal faster and better and have fewer or no health issues. That is what we called “Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less.” However, traditional education mainly covers half of the human system.
Let’s take a look at the talent and leadership development history. It has progressed from IQ-> EQ->IQ+ EQ+ some learning Q. However, the three Qs only cover one half of the human system. Some people try to use behavior to explore the unknown parts. However, the same person can behave differently in different environments. Because all 6Qs are integrated, poor IQ and poor EQ can result from non-IQ and non-EQ sources where IQ, EQ, and behavior tools have limited power. Then many “tough issues” in leadership & performance are created. Subsequently, more stress-related issues emerge, which is why healthcare costs continue soaring every year.
Traditional career management also contributes to the cycle as it focuses on personal interest, personality and some learning and skills. In fact, we also need to know your skills, talent, and levels to determine your talent type and direction. To advance career effectively, you also need other potential and stability down the road, for example, whether you can continue learning, utilize new knowledge efficiently; if you can be cool in the storm and restore your energy efficiently. There are many other issues and solutions, including how to maintain your optimal performance. It can be very struggling for individuals to identify these additional elements, and it can be very time-consuming.
What should you do? Find missing tools to meet existing challenges and stay healthy now. In the long run, you need to get on the right track to avoid unsuitable problems, have the right tools to advance career efficiently and be your doctor first, so you can be your best and stay healthy. We provide Assessment, Consultation, Training, and Management to help you at different stages. One thing I need to mention is that your 6Q data is usually valid for 2 years in the absence of significant events, which means that you can use the same data to handle other challenges and crises.
Case Study 3: Shoot Burnout, Save His Job!
Let’s have another case study. This case is about an executive who had MBA and ten years of experience at a well-known leadership consulting firm in roles from consultant to local VP. He was promoted to Regional Manager to boost regional sales and minimize turnover. Two months later, while sales remained flat, turnover got worse. In the meantime, his wife was pregnant, very unhappy as Mr. B spent a great deal of time away from home due to the new job. By the time when I met him, he was burned out, contemplating if he should resign.
I did Executive 6Q Assessment for him and found many excellent characteristics in consulting and leadership. He was also weak in sales, marketing, public influence, emotional expression, and energy restoration, and others. These weaknesses were not significant to a local VP but significant to a Regional Manager. There was no way I could address so many issues at one time, so I chose to optimize his emotional expression and teach him to share his professional stress with his wife, gain her support, and later connect with his clients. It was 30-minutes training. He eliminated his family crisis. A week later, he became more confident about his job.
So, through 90 minutes of assessment, 30 minutes of training, plus my staying up late to read his Executive 6Q Assessment, the man made a breakthrough and saved his job and region.
We have reviewed that work life and health are integrated, which is why health issues can have non-health causes, poor IQ, and EQ performance can result from non-IQ and non-EQ resources. Traditional education and Career management mainly reveal pieces of human performance instead of the whole. Unless we can target issues with the right tools, more hard matters and stress-related health issues will be created.
Each person is built uniquely. Unlike a computer, human performance can fluctuate under internal and external turbulence. Not everyone has what they should. However, today is no longer yesterday. By evaluating all 6Q elements, we can make wise investments. By targeting issues with the right tools, we often can achieve results in weeks or days instead of years or months, the attorney and the Regional manager are good examples.
A lot of time can be saved, and many dreams can come true. Everyone deserves to be their best and stay healthy. The 6Q technology enables you to fulfill your dream with power.
Again, look at the big picture, think differently, and then ask yourself what you need at your stage and in the long run. Above all, do not give up before consulting The Prince Synergy Dream & Power even if your issue is impossible to anyone else! I mean ANYONE else!
Mr. B, 38, with MBA and ten years of experience at a well-known leadership consulting firm in roles from consultant to local VP, was promoted to Regional Manager to boost regional sales and minimize turnover. Two months later, sales remained flat, and turnover had increased. His pregnant wife was very unhappy as he spent a great deal of time away from home due to the new job. His burnout was so bad that he was contemplating resignation when he met us.
Work from Inside Out
The Executive 6Q Assessment found Mr. B was an excellent consultant with many great leadership characteristics, such as decision-making, learning, EQ, persuasion, etc. However, he was weak in sales and marketing, and challenged in public influence, emotional expression, and energy restoration, and other that were not significant to a local VP.
We chose to optimize his emotion expression immediately to first take care of his family crisis so that he could recover from burnout and focus on his new job and later build intimacy with clients and colleagues. In addition, we suggested customized learning to target the rest issues.
Recover from Burnout, Focus on His New Role
Through 30 minutes of training, he learned how to share his professional stress with his wife, win her understanding and support, and eliminated his family problems. With the same skills, he also learned how to connect with clients and colleagues more deeply. One week later, he gained more confidence with his new role and could connect with clients and colleagues more deeply.
After just 90 min assessment and 30 min training, Mr. B recovered from burnout, made a breakthrough, and saved his job and region.
Burnout is very common in workplace, secondary to stress. Enough rest, exercise and social support are good but too general. Individuals can recover quickly if we can get to the root cause and target issues with the right tools. The above case is a good example.
Have you wonder what would happen had he gone to a coach to discover the solution on his own? Why his leadership firm could not anticipate his development needs or support him efficiently during the crises? You can find the answer in What Stop Leaders from Good to Great Chapter 8.
President Day is coming. I cannot help asking, “Is the American Dream for everyone, or should Jeff Bezos’ American Dream be his competitors’ American Hell?
Many people go to Amazon because of lower prices and great customer services. But they do not know that Amazon can do so somehow because they steal, rob, threaten and silence their competitors to avoid paying for research and development (R&D). We would never believe the online robbery until Amazon attempted to victimize us and make us invisible online. Jeff Bezos might never expect that our technology can be so durable.
If Amazon can skip R&D, how can those who devote their life to the R&D stay open and offer jobs? Where will customers get new products without R&D? How can local economy stay ahead? Should Jeff Bezos’ American Dream be his competitors’ American Hell?
We have closed our account on Amazon as we cannot enjoy the lower price & greater convenience at the expense of other businesses nor tolerate violation & threats. If you are willing to pay a bit more for organic food, I urge you to pay a bit more for Organic Products to protect the equality and long-term prosperity of society. I am sure you will be thrilled to know how we discover the facts and reach to the conclusion.
THE ONLINE ROBBERY OF THE CENTURY
Like most people, we admired Amazon. We might never believe the dark side of Amazon until they try to steal and rob our solutions to get into healthcare and then threaten and silence us.
The rising healthcare cost has been bankrupting individuals, families, and businesses. One primary cause healthcare cannot handle non-health causes and becomes endless symptom relieves. The right approach is to evaluate both health and non-health parts and target issues with the right tools, which can turn many years of treatments into months, weeks, or even days. The approach is called the 6Q Approach.
Through the 6Q Approach, individuals can be their best and stay healthy, and businesses can optimize their productivity while beating rising healthcare costs. Our successes started at the clinics. The 6Q are IQ, EQ, Learning Q, Adversity Q, Public Influence Q, and health Q. Middlemen, high prices and other system issues are also important but secondary.
We have contacted Amazon and Microsoft for potential partnership. Not hearing from them, we stopped sending both newsletters. However, we noticed that both could click on every link in our newsletters. Initially, we asked them to contact us directly but had no response.
In September 2018, we noticed that Amazon was following every web page update of ours through Crazy Egg. We quickly deleted the software, wrote to Jeff Bezos. Not hearing from them, we linked my letter to Jeff Bezos to our newsletter to make sure he or his team could read it.
Re: Can Amazon Stop Day I from Turning into Day 2?
Do you want someone follows each of your web page updates and clicks on every link in your newsletters from which they are excluded? Do you want me to tell your different behavior to our network? Will your customers worry that the same invasion can happen to them someday? Do you want to make some friends with Dept of Justice like Microsoft?
Like you, I care very much about day 1, and I am frugal with custom obsession. Unlike you, I do not have a father who could give me $300,000 but started from the ground. Thus, I know how hard it can be to build your market. Also, even McKinsey cannot copy ours.
To be wise and fair is critical to staying on Day 1. Do you agree?
The letter received Amazon team’s great attention but did not work.
In November 2018, we asked our server to strengthen their mail delivery security. Then a company sent out error pages from different domains to break the referring pages to our website. The error pages disappeared the next day. Google ranks a page based on its referring pages, so the fewer referring pages a web page has, the less visible the page is on Google. We wrote to the company and asked them to stop, but the company disregarded us.
I deleted the twitter to Jeff Bezos first to explore the man behind the error pages. No more error pages coming back. On Nov 14, 2018, I re-twittered Jeff Bezos the same message, and error pages came back quickly. By then, we knew Amazon wanted to not only steal and rob us but also threaten and silence us.
On 11/6/2018, we noticed that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella twittered how Microsoft helped Europe address the cybersecurity, and Jeff Bezos twittered how he started early on the computer. I twittered Satya Nadella back, “First, stop clicking on the links within our newsletter from which you are excluded” and then asked Jeff Bezos, “Does that entitle you to steal and rob your competitors through IT and threaten and destroy their online visibility? I never believe this kind of act is powerful and this kind of growth will last!!” Then error pages arrived quickly.
We immediately requested Amazon to close our account. Then more error pages arrived. It is hard to imagine that Jeff Bezos expects other human being not to resist and protect themselves when they are stolen, robbed and hurt. Eventually, the following twitter has stopped more error pages.
Our referring pages have dropped from 861 to 116 at one time, which means we were very “invisible” on Google then. Fortunately, Google was not our main communication channel, and we have quickly learned the skill to boost our online visibility and explored more unique channels to communicate with the world.
THE ONLINE ROBBERY TEAMWORK
The online robbery is a team work, from online searching, advertising to execution, far more advanced than spies from China, Russia and other countries. European and US and Japan government have taken some action against Amazon. However, their action is far from enough.
JP Morgan Chase and Berkshire want to get into healthcare with Amazon. The CEO of the first likes to talk about cooperate social responsibility. The head of the second often mentions in his speeches how he piled up money while his former wife piled down money. Neither has done anything after we have informed them what Amazon has done. Obviously, cooperate social responsibility has a different definition here, and some people’s money need not to be piled up as gracefully as it is piled down.
On Jul 24, 2018, we sent out a press on how to beat rising healthcare cost. To our surprise, there was only one or two press releases on Google while there are pages of our press releases on Yahoo and Bing. In addition, we looked like a store on “Amazon” on Google. I had to contact Google former CEO Eric Schmidt to have our home page listed. Later we learned that Amazon is an investor of Google. Thus, please visit us at www.ThePrinceSynergy.com and www.DreamandPower.com in case you cannot find us on Google someday.
Recently, Jeff Bezos wants to divorce the lady who was 100% behind him when he first started Amazon. Through “What Jeff Bezos’ Divorce Means for Amazon Investors,” we have identified another associate–Blackstone, one of the two largest stockholders of Amazon. The owner has scholarships and schools named after his name but does not know something called “conflict of interest”
ORGANIC PRODUCTS & EQUALITY
It is fair to compete with better products, better service, lower price, free product, but not with robbery, threat and silencing. Online technology has magnified the evil power of Amazon.
It usually takes tremendous research and development (R&D) or extra blood, sweat, and tears for a business to start, get ahead and stay ahead in its field. How can these companies stay open and provide jobs if others can rob them? We do not use Amazon’s cloud, and our technology is durable. What will happen to those businesses who use Amazon’s cloud or have less durable technology? Without R&D, how can customers get new products, and economy prosper in the US, Europe, Japan and other areas?
Edmund Burke said, “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” If you are willing to pay a bit more for organic food, I urge you to pay a bit more for Organic Products to support the R&D or extra blood, sweat, and tears behind. In the meantime, I urge businesses focus on not only their R&D but also their customer service and price.
We believe everyone is equal in front of God and have closed our account on Amazon as we cannot enjoy the lower price & greater convenience at the expense of other businesses nor tolerate its constant violation & threats. Can you?
As I said earlier, we also focus on building exceptional leaders and exploring what stops leaders from good to great. One finding of our 3-year study is self-destruction. Most people are familiar with those who sexually harass women and then get kicked out of office. Amazon is another kind– Jeff Bezos is digging own grave for his day 1 by expanding his empire through illegal means, for victims will scream, governments will intervene, and more and more customers will close their accounts on Amazon. Unfortunately, Jeff Bezos and his associates refuse to see the big picture and acknowledge that they need to satisfy not only all shareholders but all stakeholders. We have tried our best.
The US Law does not protect you until you are stolen. Thus, you need to protect yourself if you do not want to count on the late protection from the Law. Here are some tips:

We believe that the American Dream is for everyone. It is fair to compete with better products, better service, lower price, free product, but not with robbery, threat and silencing. Technology does not entitle anyone to violate others. A business ought to satisfy all stakeholders not just its shareholders. Today will never be tomorrow. Everyone can make tomorrow better. Join us!
