It's Time For You To Have A Little Talk With Yourself
One of the most powerful tools I have in my "pick me up" arsenal is Positive Self Talk. It is something any of us can do at any time and it is a really great way to start off the day. Here are a few tips on how to supercharge your attitude and self esteem through Positive Self Talk.
Know your outcome. Have a clear vision of the end result and avoid dwelling on the question, how will I get there? Our subconscious minds are very creative and once the thought is programmed, you will be pleasantly surprised at how the creative mind goes to work to guide you to make the vision a reality. For example, let's take a shy person who is uncomfortable speaking to a group of people. The desired end-result is to be confident, dynamic and captivating when speaking before large groups of people.
Get Personal. Begin your affirmations with "I"....okay, we would all probably like to change the behavior of some of the people around us, but we can only affirm for ourselves. However, as you begin to make changes in your own behavior, others will notice and begin to ask what is your secret? ..So, as you share your new techniques, you are, indirectly, also making a positive impact on those around you.
Be Positive. Use a positive spin when saying and writing affirmations as opposed to the negative approach. An example of the difference is stating, I am confident when speaking before groups of people, VS. the negative approach of saying. I am not as nervous or scared as I used to feel when speaking to groups of people.
Be In The Present Tense. You want to keep the statement in the NOW moment for your subconscious mind to fully comprehend the change is for today, NOT someday. Avoid using words like CAN, WILL, SHOULD, COULD, and instead use the empowering word I AM....I am a confident, dynamic and powerful speaker when addressing large groups of people.
Now that you have infected the Quantum Field with Positive Self Talk it is time to pass this along to others.
Have an excellent day.

five rules for awesome abs
“Keep constant tension in the muscles by coming up only until your shoulder blades clear the floor.”
The surefire way to a firmer, flatter stomach is to dedicate yourself to a daily abdominal routine. Besides contributing to your overall physique, strong stomach muscles support the often over-stressed lower back and improve overall athletic performance. As you perform your daily crunches, keep in mind these five basic rules:
Defy gravity. "Letting yourself fall back down during the lowering phase of a crunch puts your abs through only half a workout," says Kravitz. Slow yourself down as you return to the floor. This is an essential part of the movement because your body actually builds muscle by sustaining microtears that are repaired to build muscle.
Go low. Raise up only as high as you need to. When your torso goes beyond 45°, you stop emphasizing the stomach and start to use your back and leg muscles to pull yourself up. It's important to keep constant tension in the muscles by coming up only until your shoulder blades clear the floor.
Squeeze up. Most people think the premise of the crunch is to curl the shoulders up and forward. "This causes people to tighten the muscles of your upper back and neck, placing unnecessary strain on these areas as you exercise," says Kravitz. The emphasis should be on contracting your stomach muscles and drawing your ribs to your hips, as if your midsection was an accordion. Your shoulders still lift off the floor but your aim is the ceiling, not your knees.
Suck it in. Pulling in your stomach not only gives you the appearance of a flatter stomach, it can actually help you get one faster. "Holding in your abdominal muscles as you go helps target the muscles to make the exercise more effective," says Kravitz.
Mix things up. Your abdominal muscles have the attention span of a four-year-old. "Always be on the lookout for creative ways to vary your routine and surprise your muscles," says Kravitz, "Challenging them from new angles and with different exercises will keep you in the best shape possible."
Don't forget to pound the water. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon or 4 tablespoons of unsweetened cranberry juice 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.
