Earn the Respect of Others
by: Brian Tracy

Create A Big Vision
To become a leader, you start with motivating yourself. You motivate yourself with a big vision, and as you move progressively toward its realization, you motivate and enthuse others to work with you to fulfill that vision.

Set High Standards
You exhibit absolute honesty and integrity with everyone in everything you do. You are the kind of person others admire and respect and want to be like. You set a standard that others aspire to. You live in truth with yourself and others so that they feel confident giving you their support and their commitment.

Face Your Fears
You demonstrate courage in everything you do by facing doubts and uncertainties and moving forward regardless. You put up a good front even when you feel anxious about the outcome. You don’t burden others with your fears and misgivings. You keep them to yourself. You constantly push yourself out of your comfort zone and in the direction of your goals. And no matter how bleak the situation might appear, you keep on keeping on with a smile.

Be Realistic About Your Situation
You are intensely realistic. You refuse to engage in mental games or self-delusion. You encourage others to be realistic and objective about their situations as well. You encourage them to realize and appreciate that there is a price to pay for everything they want. They have weaknesses that they will have to overcome, and they have standards that they will have to meet, if they want to survive and thrive in a competitive market.

Accept Responsibility
You accept complete responsibility for results. You refuse to make excuses or blame others or hold grudges against people who you feel may have wronged you. You say, “If it’s to be, it’s up to me.” You repeat over and over the words, “I am responsible. I am responsible. I am responsible.”

Take Vigorous Action
Finally, you take action. You know that all mental preparation and character building is merely a prelude to action. It’s not what you say but what you do that counts.
The mark of the true leader is that he or she leads the action. He or she is willing to go first. He or she sets the example and acts as the role model. He or she does what he or she expects others to do.

Strive For Excellence
You become a motivational leader by motivating yourself. And you motivate yourself by striving toward excellence, by committing yourself to becoming everything you are capable of becoming. You motivate yourself by throwing your whole heart into doing your job in an excellent fashion. You motivate yourself and others by continually looking for ways to help others to improve their lives and achieve their goals. You become a motivational leader by becoming the kind of person others want to get behind and support in every way.

Your main job is to take complete control of your personal evolution and become a leader in every area of your life. You could ask for nothing more, and you should settle for nothing less.

Action Exercises
First, see yourself as an outstanding person, parent, coworker and leader in everything you do. Pattern your behavior after the very best people you know. Set high standards and refuse to compromise them.
Second, be clear about your goals and priorities and then take action continually forward. Develop a sense of urgency. Keep moving forward and you’ll automatically keep yourself and others motivated.

How To Go With The Flow

Flow is an optimal psychological state characterized by focused concentration and attention, absorption in the activity and a feeling of letting go. It's all about staying in the moment, in the present. When in flow you aren't dwelling over the past or worrying about the future. You are simply enjoying the here and now. Typically, people who have experienced a flow state will have a positive, emotional buzz afterwards and wonder where the time went.

Getting into flow can be tricky business. If you start looking for it too much, it will escape you. But if you don't prepare for flow before, during and after exercise, you won't experience it either. Here's how to open yourself to it:

First, be clear on your goal for every exercise session. It doesn't matter so much the kind of goal but that you have one. Goals focus the mind, which is crucial for flow. For example, some days my goal is to run for speed; other days my goal is to enjoy my surrounding environment. These goals focus my mind in different ways but both goals enable it to get absorbed, to pay attention, to tune my mind and body into the exercise experience. This keeps me in the present moment, the only place where flow will occur. So have a goal every time you exercise.

Second, flow is most likely to occur when challenges and skills are in balance. If the exercise session is too challenging for your physical and mental skills, you will experience anxiety; if it's not challenging enough, you can experience boredom. You can't be in flow if you're worried or bored. The best way to avoid worry is to make sure you don't overdo it or overwhelm yourself with too much exercise gadgetry. To guard against boredom, don't do the same kind of exercise over and over again; you just won't challenge yourself enough and in the right way. Avoid mental funk by raising the stakes of your activity: Move up to the moderate or high impact aerobics class, or start taking faster walks around the block. Try a more advanced slope on the mountain Just don't take the challenge too far beyond your skill. If you do, you'll be right back in the anxiety you want to avoid. In addition, you want to be in a safe zone physically so that you don't injure yourself. But by all means, raise the stakes. You'll create increased interest, balance challenge with skill and have a greater likelihood for experiencing flow states during exercise.

Drinking 64 ounces of water everyday will help everything flow. 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 stevia powder. Now, start splashing.

Open To The New

"All the people we call ‘geniuses’ are men and women who somehow escaped having to put that curious, wondering child in themselves to sleep."

-- Barbara Sher

How willing are you to learn something new? How open are you to new perspectives?

Only when we’re open can we really hear what’s being said or really see what’s happening or really experience the moment.

Openness demands that we be willing to move to places we’ve never been before. It asks us to continually challenge the foundations of our belief systems so we can test out new ideas. And to do that, we need to accept insecurity.

"The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn."

-- Alvin Toffler
