Keeping An Attitude of Accountability
I recall a mentor of mine once said to me that integrity is about keeping your word and if you become your word your word becomes universal. One of the secrets of success is learning to adopt an Attitude of Accountability.
An Attitude of Accountability is about keeping your word –doing what you say you’re going to do. Keeping your word is a standard or a value that draws people to you, creates complete trust and produces success.
How important is it for you to keep your word? Although it may sound a little old fashioned, keeping your word will never go out of style. But what, exactly, does it mean to "keep your word"? Simply this: To honor any commitment you make to another person.
Whether it is business or personal, the principle is the same. Meet your commitments, honor your obligations -- simply keep your word.
Here are a few tips that will help you build greater integrity in your life:
- Never commit to doing something that you don't believe you can honor.
- Before you commit to something, think of the long-term implications in terms of the time, effort and inconvenience that may be required.
- Don't commit to do something simply for the sake of approval.
- Jot down your commitment somewhere in writing so it doesn't slip your mind.
- Never change your mind because of circumstances that occur after you make your commitment.
And remember, there is an unforeseen problem which may delay or prevent your from following through be sure to let the person you've promised something to know about it.
Have an excellent day.

Water Works for Weight Loss
Nothing quells the appetite like water, lots and lots of water. Start out with two quart bottles in the morning and carry one with you to work or wherever you go. If you like, divvy up the 64 ounces of water into eight (8-ounce) bottles or four pint (16-ounce) bottles to carry around with you all day. Freeze half of them the night before and they will last all day, even in a hot car. Keep some unfrozen so they will be ready to drink immediately.
Yes. You will have to make more frequent bathroom trips, but it is worth it. Drink your 64 ounces of water before dinner, if possible, so you're not up half the night going to the bathroom.
Water not only fills you up and lessens your appetite, it prevents those "hungry horrors" we all encounter when our blood sugar drops and we reach for cookies, candy, ice cream, fries or other high-calorie treats. Water also flushes out the system, rids the body of bloat and toxins and perks up the complexion. Keep in mind that the body goes through 2 1/2 liters of water in a day. If you fail to replace this, you will slowly turn into a raisin.
While drinking 64 ounces of water everyday may sound like an easy task, it can get a little boring. 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 Steviva Brand stevia powder.
Move Through Obstacles and Problems
"Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them." -- Orison Swett Marden
We can’t escape problems and negativity. Escaping just brings denial and suppression - we continue to carry the problem with us. Ironically, it is our lack of acceptance and resistance to the problem that creates the pain. Resistance builds up an energy wall or block that, if not discharged, gets suppressed into the body. These blocks identify places where we have not enough understanding or love.
For health, we must work through what we seek to avoid. How do we do this? We can love parts of ourselves that we don’t like. We can seek the lessons we are being invited to learn through the problem. We can examine our beliefs and seek to see different perspectives and a bigger picture. As our perspectives grow, more of life makes sense and has meaning.
"The Lord is a good psychologist: he knows the way our minds run. Turmoil can be the Lord's way of tapping us on the shoulder and saying, 'Don't forget me."
-- Eknath Easwaran
