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.

Three Factors For Financial Success
by: Brian Tracy

What do wealthy people do or have that enables them to accomplish so much more than the average? I believe that these people are successful as a result of what I call leverage. Leverage is the key to maximizing and multiplying your potential for success and financial achievement. Here are three examples of leverage that you can develop to achieve financial independence:

Become an Expert
First, become an expert in your chosen field. Read all the books, take all the courses, listen to all the audio programs. Second, specialize in those areas that are of greatest importance and greatest value to your company or to your customers. And the third key is know your product or service inside out. Aim to be recognized as the industry expert in your field. Remember the person who has the expertise has a far greater contribution to make than the person whose knowledge is just average.

Develop Your Skills
The second type of leverage is skill. There are three keys to developing the leverage of skill. First, make a decision to be the best. Pay any price. Make any sacrifice. Go any distance to become excellent at what you do. Second, engage in continuous improvement. Never allow yourself to become satisfied or complacent at your current level of skill. And third, always strive to exceed the expectations of your customers, your boss, of the people you serve. Always do more and better than you're paid for.

Save Your Money
The third type of leverage is money. Money is a powerful source of leverage and usually follows the development of knowledge and skill in your field. One of the reasons that it takes money to make money is that the accumulation of funds is an essential step in the development of the personal qualities and character that must precede the achievement of financial independence. In other words, you become the person capable of becoming financially independent by accumulating the funds that are necessary for you to achieve it.

Action Exercises
Here are two things you can do immediately to put these ideas on personal leverage into action:

First, resolve today to become an expert in your chosen field. Set it as a goal, make a plan and work every day to become a little bit better in the most important things you do.

Second, develop the habit of saving money out of every single paycheck. It was once said that, "If you cannot save money, the seeds of greatness are not in you." The very act of regular saving changes your character and gets you ready to achieve financial independence.

Middle Management
five rules for awesome abs
by Jack Hammond

“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.

Thinking of Poverty or Wealth

"Being poor is a frame of mind."

-- Mike Todd

What do you think of money?

Our beliefs create our reality. If you have struggled with money most of your adult life, chances are that something happened when you were young to create limiting beliefs around money and prosperity. Look back to your early years. What beliefs did your parents and other influential adults have about money? Chances are you’re also carrying those beliefs. Are they serving you?

“The law of abundance is that everything replicates after its own kind. Like is attracted to like. If you want more wealth, concentrate of wealth; think thoughts of abundance and wealth.”

-- Delfin Knowledge System
