Perhaps the most powerful single factor in your success is your beliefs about yourself and money. We call this the Law of Belief. It says simply this: Whatever you believe, with feeling, becomes your reality.

To Achieve Greatly
First, continually repeat to yourself the words, pictures and thoughts consistent with your dreams and goals. Whatever you repeat often enough, over and over, becomes a new belief.
a goal for yourself to think and talk only about the things that you want
for the next 24 hours. This will be one of the hardest things you ever
do. But if you can keep your mind on what you want and off of what you
don't want for 24 hours, you can begin to change your entire future.
Walking is the oldest mode of transportation — after all, humans have been doing it for more than 1.5 million years. It's also the cheapest, easiest form of aerobic exercise: All you have to do is open your front door, step outside and get moving. Other pluses: Walking is a great way to relieve tension. And because it's relatively gentle on the joints, people who have had to give up running or other intense sports can turn to walking for their fitness fix.
Walk tall, bend your arms at roughly a 90-degree angle and pump them quickly back and forth, not across your body. Curl your hands into loose fists. Take short, quick steps rather than long strides. Land on your heels and roll forward smoothly, pushing off with your toes. "Think of having rocking feet," suggests Bonnie Stein, a Tampa Bay-area instructor who has taught more than 7,000 people how to race walk.
Walking strengthens the hips, gluteus muscles, quadriceps and hamstrings. At speedier paces, when your heart rate is elevated, you can burn more calories than you might realize as well as improve your endurance. Research suggests that walking can reduce your risk for heart disease and may lower high blood pressure. In fact, a recent study indicates that walking two or more miles a day helped elderly men live longer. Since walking is a weight-bearing activity, it also reduces your risk for osteoporosis.
Before you end your walk, slow down your pace to allow your heart rate to descend gradually. Be sure to stretch the following major muscle groups after you warm up to prevent injury and again after exercising to promote flexibility and prevent soreness.
"Breath is the link between the inner and outer worlds."
-- Alice Christensen
We live in very demanding times, and our health depends on our being able to relieve our bodies and minds from constant stress. Breathing with awareness can focus and concentrate our attention inside. This slows down our pace and eases the pressure, anxiety, anticipation and excitement that are common stress reactions.
At any time, you can consciously experience your breathing to help you concentrate your mind and relax your body. Compare how you feel after your session with how you felt before. Write about your experience in your journal.
"Controlled deep breathing helps the body to transform the air we breathe into energy. The stream of energized air produced by properly executed and controlled deep breathing produces a current of inner energy which radiates throughout the entire body and can be channeled to the body areas that need it the most, on demand."
