Attitude Determines Altitude
a few suggestions on keeping a positive attitude
I am sure you have heard it a million times; "attitude determines altitude". But, what does it mean exactly? It is not what happens to you that counts. It is how you react to what happens to you, especially when you have unexpected problems of any kind. In this message, you learn powerful strategies you can use to keep yourself thinking and acting positively and creatively. Here are four things you can do to assure that your attitude is the very best it can be, under all circumstances.
Focus on the Future
First, whatever challenges you face, focus on the future rather than on the past. Instead of worrying about who did what and who is to blame, focus on where you want to be and what you want to do. Get a clear mental image of your ideal successful future, and then take whatever action you can to begin moving in that direction. Get your mind, your thoughts, and your mental images on the future.
Focus on the Solution
Second, whenever you’re faced with a difficulty, focus on the solution rather than on the problem. Think and talk about the ideal solution to the obstacle or setback, rather than wasting time rehashing and reflecting on the problem. Solutions are inherently positive, whereas problems are inherently negative. The instant that you begin thinking in terms of solutions, you become a positive and constructive human being.
Look for the Good
Third, assume that something good is hidden within each difficulty or challenge. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, a major proponent of positive thinking, once said, “Whenever God wants to give us a gift, he wraps it up in a problem.” The bigger the gift you have coming, the bigger the problem you will receive. But the wonderful thing is that if you look for the gift, you will always find it.
Hunt For the Lesson
Fourth, assume that whatever situation you are facing at the moment is exactly the right situation you need to ultimately be successful. This situation has been sent to you to help you learn something, to help you become better, to help you expand and grow.
Mimic What The Successful Do
A Positive Mental Attitude is indispensable to your success. You can be as positive as you want to be if you will simply think about the future, focus on the solution and look for the good. If you do what other successful people do, if you use your mind to exert mental control over the situation, you will be positive and cheerful most of the time. And you will reap the benefits enjoyed by all successful people.
Brining It into Action
First, become solution-oriented with every difficulty you face. Make a habit of looking for the answers to your questions, the solutions to your problems.
Second, seek for the valuable lesson in every adversity. Make a list of every idea or insight you can gain from every setback or difficulty.
Third, think on paper. Take some time to write out every detail of the problem, and then take the most logical next step to solve it.
Have an excellent day.

You Can't Succeed Without A Goal
The indispensable first step
to getting the things you want out of life is this:
decide what you want.
You must first establish your objectives
if you are to accomplish anything in a big way.
Goals give you a starting place and a destination.
People with goals succeed because they know where they're going.
Determine what you want.
Decide on your major objectives, targets, aims, and destination.
If you don't know where you're going, how can you expect to get there?
Goals are dreams that are written down.
Plant your dreams, nourish and begin to live them.
The most important thing about a goal is having one.
Watching Your Calories - Accurate Calorie Counting?
When cutting back on calories, estimating the calories in every- thing you eat can seem a difficult task. But careful monitoring of your calorie intake can be crucial to your success while you are learning to eat well.
Studies show that without careful monitoring, people underestimate their daily calorie intake by a whopping 30-50%! While they think they are "dieting," they may in fact be putting on weight.
To help get a handle on your calorie intake, use all of the tools you have at your fingertips. Read food labels before you buy a product, and measure portions as you place them on your plate. When using our food calculator, be sure to set the correct serving size with each calculation.
But most important is the simple act of self-monitoring the food you eat, even if you do underestimate your calorie intake. Research shows that simply being conscious of everything you eat makes a significant difference in managing your weight. And the more self-monitoring records you complete each week, the more weight you are likely to lose. Here is a great site for accurate Calorie Counting http://www.nutritiondata.com/index.html
Listen To Your Heart
"To know how to choose a path with heart is to learn how to follow intuitive feeling. Logic can tell you superficially where a path might lead to, but it cannot judge whether your heart will be in it."
"When you have compassion and surrender to your own heart, you are surrendering to the hidden power in your heart, God. You are surrendering to love, because God is Love, the cohesive force of the universe that connects us all. Surrender is not just a religious concept; it's a power tool for listening to the voice of your spirit and following its directions. When you surrender your head to your heart, you allow your heart to give you a wider, higher intelligence perspective. Remember the phrase, ‘The real teacher is within you.’ Very simply, that teacher is to be found in the common sense of your own heart."
"Surrender is faith that the power of love can accomplish anything... even when you can not foresee the outcome."
