It Is Our Light, Not Our darkness, That Frightens Us

I have been so blessed with an amazing supportive family, great friends that know me well and opportunity that has some how serendipitously fallen into my lap. It doesn't mean that I haven't had my ups accompanied with downs but, it seems lately that the downs are less severe as well as less frequent.

One of the contributing factors to my sense of well being is that I have tried to fill my life with positive and inspirational quotes. On a daily basis as I create my day in my mind I think of some of these quotes. None rings truer or more inspirational to me than Nelson Mandela's 1994 Inaugural Speech. It goes as like this...

Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.

It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Nelson Mandela

Here's to realizing your fullest potential!

Have an excellent day.

A life without purpose is like a ship without a rudder.
The purpose of a goal is to focus your attention.
Your mind will reach toward achievement only when it has a goal.
There is no achievement without goals.

Establish a goal worth working for.
Your goal will keep you going in tough times.
Always have something ahead of you.

Continuously visualize your next step.
Keep moving after you achieve your goal and set another.
Momentum is maintained by always having something to look forward to.
Constantly give yourself something to work for.

Do what you can do well,and do well whatever you can do.
You can plant your dream with a goal.

Making Changes To Your Diet Starts With Changing Your Environment

Making changes to your diet and exercise plan may seem so difficult as to be discouraging. Especially at first, when new behaviors are unfamiliar and easier said than done.

Providing yourself with a supportive environment will help keep you focused on your goals, and you will soon be on your way to a slimmer, healthier you!

Learning to support your behavior changes in different ways will help you make them permanent. This can involve both changing your environment, and the circumstances supporting your behavior changes.

If you make a commitment to stop drinking soda pop, be sure there's none left in your refrigerator. If you make a commitment to walk at lunchtime, make sure to leave time for it and to have a pair of athletic shoes on hand.

Make the right changes to your environment and you will find it easier to achieve the behavioral changes you desire, and to sustain your new behaviors and reach your goals.

Take a look at your environment, and ask yourself what you can change to better support your goals. Then take action!

Keeping yourself hydrated during your work out will make it even more effective. Don't forget to drink plenty of water! What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder. Now, starting working out.

Go For What You Want

"Follow your bliss."

-- Joseph Campbell

It’s hard for some of us to believe that the world is served when we seek our own happiness. We’ve been taught that this is selfish.

If we stop to reflect on how we are in the world when we are happy, we can see how this serves. We have more vitality. We’re more loving and generous to others when our own needs are met.

What activities bring you greatest joy? Your unique gift to the world will be found in those pastimes you love the most.

How can you live your joy each day?

"Spiritual growth is not made in reaction against, for all striving against imposed restrictions is imaginary. Spiritual growth is accomplished by inclination toward. We grow like the sunflower, following the light."

-- Joy Houghton
