Drawing Success into Your Life
seven easy steps that will bring you closer to success

Success is defined differently by all of us. I have seen people with a great deal of financial success while emotionally they were bankrupt. The best kind of success of all is the well rounded success of having every facet of your life covered. There is of course financial success but, there is also emotional success, family success, educational success and the list can go on and on. Whatever success you desire to draw into your life you will need a plan… a road map if you will. The following seven tips are used by every successful person in the world. Now they can be used by you.

Decide What You Want
Step number one, decide exactly what it is you want in each part of your life. Become a "meaningful specific" rather than a "wandering generality."

Write it Down
Second, write it down, clearly and in detail. Always think on paper. A goal that is not in writing is not a goal at all. It is merely a wish and it has no energy behind it.

Set a Deadline
Third, set a deadline for your goal. A deadline acts as a "forcing system" in your subconscious mind. It motivates you to do the things necessary to make your goal come true. If it is a big enough goal, set sub-deadlines as well. Don't leave this to chance.

 Make a List
Fourth, make a list of everything that you can think of that you are going to have to do to achieve your goal. When you think of new tasks and activities, write them on your list until your list is complete.

Organize Your List
Fifth, organize your list into a plan. Decide what you will have to do first and what you will have to do second. Decide what is more important and what is less important. And then write out your plan on paper, the same way you would develop a blueprint to build your dream house.

Take Action
The sixth step is for you to take action on your plan. Do something. Do anything. But get busy. Get going.

Do Something Every Day
Do something every single day that moves you in the direction of your most important goal at the moment. Develop the discipline of doing something 365 days each year that is moving you forward. You will be absolutely astonished at how much you accomplish when you utilize this formula in your life every single day.

Have a sensational week!

YOUR MIND

Accepting Change With a Smile
Max Steingart

Sooner or later you'll experience a crisis in your life, and how you meet it will determine your future happiness and success. Since the beginning of time,
everyone has been called upon to meet such a crisis.

A closer look will show you that most "crisis situations" are opportunities to either advance or stay where you are. In fact, most changes in your life will take place out of either"inspiration" or "desperation."

Whatever comes your way, give it meaning and transform it into something of value. Your personal growth is the process of responding positively to change.

A precious stone cannot be polished without friction, nor humanity perfected without trials.

YOUR BODY

5 Good Pieces Of Advice
“There are lots of ways to be physically active and it all counts.”

1. "Always remember that a body in motion tends to stay in motion. Newton was right all along - inertia is tough to overcome for any object, most especially a human body. You get into a groove to exercise, both physically and psychologically, and the momentum can be so strong and so effective."

2. "After you exercise, take a few minutes and close your eyes, and really think about how good your body feels, how clear your mind is of stress and confusion. You may not like the time when you're exercising, although hopefully you will learn to enjoy it, but that after-exercise buzz always feels great."

3. "Don't overlook the physical activity you get in your everyday active life, like doing housework, gardening, walking the dog, or playing with the kids. There are lots of ways to be physically active and it all counts, so you may be exercising more than you give yourself credit for."

4. "Think of it this way: There are 168 hours in every week. If you exercise for just four of those you'll feel really good and accomplished the other 164. It's really just a small investment, isn't it?"

5. "There is no inherently bad food on the planet - it's often a question of how much you're eating. I don't like the word 'diet,' which is often about denial and the elimination of food. Instead, sit down with a registered dietician and get your eating patterns analyzed. Just as you should start an exercise routine and gradually increase the intensity, so you should gradually introduce a healthier pattern of eating."

Keep yourself hydrated! 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.

YOUR SPIRIT

The Energy of an Embrace


The need to touch and be touched is established early in our lives, as we develop and grow in the omnipresent embrace of our mother’s womb. Once we are born, separated from that sanctuary of connectivity, we begin to crave the physical embrace of our parents. As we age, we become more independent. Yet during times of triumph or trouble and during those moments when we are in need of reassurance, we can’t help but long for a hug.

Because a hug requires two active participants, each individual taking part in the embrace experiences the pleasure of being embraced and the joy that comes from hugging someone. As both individuals wrap their arms around one another, their energy blends together, and they experience a tangible feeling of togetherness that lingers long after physical contact has been broken. A heart hug is when you put your left arm over someone’s shoulder and your right arm around their waist. As they do the same to you, your hearts become aligned with one another other and loving, comforting energy flows between the two of you to flood your souls with feelings of love, caring, and compassion.

A hug is a pleasurable way to share your feelings with someone who is important to you. Depending on your relationship with the other person and the kind of message you wish to send to them, a hug can communicate love, friendship, romance, congratulations, support, greeting, and any other sentiment you wish to convey. A hug communicates to others that you are there for them in a positive way. In an instant, a hug can reestablish a bond between long lost friends and comfort those in pain. The next time you hug someone, focus all of your energy into the embrace. You will create a profound connection that infuses your feelings and sentiments into a single beautiful gesture.

YOUR RECIPE

Low Glycemic No Added Sugar Strawberry Apple Pie
Serves: 8
Carbs Per Serving: 15.62 g
Prep Time:<55 minutes


INGREDIENTS:
2 1/2 pounds apples, peeled, cored, sliced
2 cups strawberries
1 cup Fructevia, Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or 1/8 teaspoon Steviva Brand Stevia Powder mixed with 1 cup of unsweetened apple sauce.
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons whole grain flour
1 tablespoon butter, cut in small pieces
whole grain pie shell for two-crust 9-inch pie

PREPARATION:

  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Mix the apples and strawberries together in a large bowl.
  • In another bowl, combine the Fructevia, Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or Steviva Brand Stevia Powder applesauce blend, spices, and flour; gently mix into the fruit mixture. Line a 9-inch pie plate with bottom crust.
  • Spoon the fruit filling into the prepared crust, then dot with butter. Top with the remaining pie crust, leaving a slight overhang. Crimp the edges of the top and bottom crusts together, sealing the fruit into the shell.
  • Whisk the egg yolk and milk together, and brush this wash over the top crust.
  • With a sharp knife, make several slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  • Bake at 375° for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, or until the apples are tender. If crust seems to be browning too quickly, reduce the heat to 325 degrees.
