The Efficiency Curve
by: Brian Tracy

The more you discipline yourself to working non-stop on a single task, the more you move down the "Efficiency Curve." You get more and more high quality work done in less and less time.

Each time you stop working however, you break this cycle and move back up the curve to where every part of the task is more difficult and time consuming.

Self Discipline Is The Key
Elbert Hubbard defined self discipline as, "The ability to make yourself do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not."

In the final analysis, success in any area requires tons of discipline. Self-discipline, self-mastery and self-control are the basic building blocks of character and high performance.

The True Test of Willpower
Starting a high priority task and persisting with that task until it is 100% complete is the true test of your character, your willpower and your resolve.

Persistence is actually self-discipline in action. The good news is that the more you discipline yourself to persist on a major task, the more you like and respect yourself, and the higher is your self-esteem.

And the more you like and respect yourself, the easier it is for you to discipline yourself to persist even more.

Focus Clearly on Your Number One Task
By focusing clearly on your most valuable task and concentrating single mindedly until it is 100% complete, you actually shape and mold your own character. You become a superior person.

You become a stronger, more competent, confident and happier person. You feel more powerful and productive.

Build Your Self-Confidence
You eventually feel capable of setting and achieving any goal. You become the master of your own destiny. You place yourself on an ascending spiral of personal effectiveness on which your future is absolutely guaranteed.

And the key to all of this is for you to determine the most valuable and important thing you could possibly do at every single moment and then, "Eat That Frog!"

Action Exercises
Once you start your most important task, discipline yourself to persevere without diversion or distraction until it is 100% complete. See it as a “test” to determine whether you are the kind of person who can make a decision to complete something and then carry it out. Once you begin, refuse to stop until the job is finished.

A Day Off
why you need to include rest in your exercise program

“Your body needs to recover from the stress that exercise causes to tissues and energy systems.”

When you have a fitness goal and you're determined to stick with your exercise program to reach it, a rest day might seem like a sure way to sabotage your efforts. But taking a day off from exercise is just as important as any single workout you do. It sounds too good to be true, but with adequate rest, your body's performance will actually improve. It's athletes who don't rest enough who find themselves over-trained and injured.

Everyone, from a beginning exerciser to an Olympic athlete, requires time off as part of a weekly workout program. Here's why: Your body needs to recover from the stress that exercise causes to tissues and energy systems. A rest day results in better performance at your next workout.

For cardiovascular exercise, you generally need one to two days of rest each week. For strength training, alternating rest days with workout days is the general guideline. And while you're enjoying your day off, consider this equally pleasurable fact: The benefits of strength training take place during rest periods rather than when you're actually lifting the weight. How? Lifting weights strains, stresses and slightly tears the muscles' fibers. A rest period of 24 to 48 hours lets the muscles rebuild minus; this is the process that actually makes them stronger.

Rest days give you a mental boost, too. Instead of thinking about how to fit in your workout or remembering to bring along your exercise clothes for class, you can focus on other activities you enjoy. Then, when your next workout comes around, you'll feel refreshed and enthusiastic about your exercise goals all over again!

Do not forget to drink a lot of water before, during and after your work out. Drinking 64 ounces of water everyday will help boost your energy. 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.

Create Consciously

"No man has a chance to enjoy permanent success until he begins to look in a mirror for the real cause of all his mistakes."

-- Napoleon Hill

The law of karma is the law of cause and effect. It works unavoidably when there is no consciousness -- when we are not present in the moment. When there is no consciousness, the past creates the future.

The law of Love supersedes the law of karma. It intervenes in the process by focusing in the present. In fact, one could say that Love is being fully present. When anything is initiated in Love in the present, the future of that reality will be purposeful, meaningful, loving and powerful.

"He who is false to present duty breaks a thread in the loom, and will find the flaw when he may have forgotten its cause."

--Henry Ward Beecher

"In my beginning is my end."

-- T.S. Eliot
