Time For An Attitude Adjustment
“shape your attitude and determine your altitude ”

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.Here are a few things you can do to assure that your attitude is the very best it can be, under all circumstances.

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.

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.

Always 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.

Take for granted 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.

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 positive thinking people.

Have an excellent week.

Living The Dream

Max Steingart

The beginning of your success lies in your imagination. Visualize all the things you want in your life. Then make your mental blue print and begin to build.

You can make your dreams work and produce for you. You can make every thought, every fact, that comes into your mind pay you a dividend.

Your imagination will show you how to turn your possibilities into reality. The will to succeed springs from the knowledge that you can succeed.

Think of things not as they are, but as they might be. Don't merely dream, create. You owe it to yourself to live your dreams.

Kick Up Your Cardio

You can burn major calories by increasing the level of your cardio intensity. An amazing method of cardio training is called HIIT (high intensity interval training). The overview of this training method is to limit the time to a maximum of 20 minutes per session and vary your training intensity during the workout.

Start out with an exercise like the elliptical trainer and begin at about a 65% intensity level for the first 5 minutes. Once you're warmed up, increase the intensity to 90% for the next 30 seconds and then drop back down to 65% intensity for the next 60 seconds. Repeat the cycle for the next 10 minutes. Once you hit the 15 minute mark, drop your intensity back down to a steady 65% intensity and cool down for the last 5 minutes. You can apply the HIIT cardio training to any exercise like running, jumping rope, cycling and even aerobics.

You will be losing a lot of water so don't forget to hydrate. 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.


Compare Yourself To Nothing

"Nothing is good or bad but by comparison."
-- Thomas Fuller

We are each unique, so comparing ourselves to others serves no purpose. Even comparing myself to how I was a while back is not usually helpful. Typically, comparison just brings the ego a false sense of either superiority or inferiority.
If we let go of comparison and choose instead to completely accept where we are, we can enjoy both peace and growth.

"Do not judge and you will never be mistaken."

-- Jean Jacques Rousseau


Low Glycemic Sugar Free All Natural Strawberry Apple Pie
Serves: 8
Carbs Per Serving: 15.62 g
Prep Time:<55 minutes

2 1/2 pounds apples, peeled, cored, sliced
2 cups strawberries
1 cup 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


  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Mix the apples and strawberries together in a large bowl.
  • In another bowl, combine the 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.
