HOW TO REACT
Here are four things you can do to assure that your attitude is the very best it can be, under all circumstances.

ABOUT THE SOLUTION
FOR THE GOOD
THE VALUABLE LESSON
TO BE POSITIVE
First, become solution-oriented with every difficulty you face. Make a habit of looking for the answers to your questions, the solutions to your problems.
Second, seek for the valuable lesson in every adversity. Make a list of every idea or insight you can gain from every setback or difficulty.
Third, think on paper. Take some time to write out every detail of the problem, and then take the most logical next step to solve it.
Although some people thrive on a lively aerobics class or the camaraderie of strength training at the end of a day, others just want a little comfort and privacy. For many people, working out at home is the perfect solution. But even if you're the kind of person who prefers an at-home workout, experts agree that you can maximize it by belonging to a fitness facility — or at least visiting one occasionally. Here's why:
You'll get a boost. "While working out at home is convenient, it's really hard to stay motivated," says Steve Petruzzello, Ph.D., associate professor of exercise physiology at the University of Illinois. "Nobody cares whether you're working out. And you don't have the facility membership fees on your conscience if you don't go." Also, that living room treadmill may soon lose its novelty, and sessions may start to feel so much like drudgery that you stop using it. But even if you stay fairly motivated to exercise at home, you're likely to be distracted by the doorbell, the telephone or chores that need to be done.
You'll get a planned, progressive program. Fitness professionals will set you up on a regimen that's right for your age, condition, and goals, and that will continually challenge you and prevent boredom. They'll also be around to answer questions and update your program.
A personal trainer will teach you correct form. "A lot of people try to go fast too soon or try to lift what they did in high school, and they end up hurting themselves," says Carla Sottovia, assistant fitness director at the Cooper Fitness Center in Dallas. "Knowing the proper technique will prevent injury and optimize results." Beginners should work with a facility trainer two to three times a week for a month, and check back every four to five weeks to change their workout. More experienced exercisers can just do periodic check-ups.
Trainers can help set up your home gym. Douglas Brooks, a northern California exercise physiologist/trainer and author of Your Personal Trainer (1999, Human Kinetics), says, "A trainer will select equipment, balancing what you already have with what you need, and taking into consideration your overall fitness interests — cardio, strength training, flexibility — budget, space, even geography. For example, if you have a limited budget but live in California and can run outdoors, I'd hold off on buying cardio machines and prioritize strength." Some trainers can even get you equipment at wholesale prices, adds Brooks.
Fitness facilities offer a greater variety of exercise options. Sottovia claims that "From a physiological standpoint, muscles adapt to resistance. After you do a routine for a while, you'll plateau and stop making progress." A facility that's fully stocked with the latest equipment will offer you many opportunities to challenge those muscles in new ways. Plus, it's a lot cheaper than buying it all yourself.
While working out don't forget to drink plenty of water! 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 sweating.
"If doubt is challenging you and you do not act, doubts will grow. Challenge the doubts with action and you will grow. Doubt and action are incompatible."
-- John Kanary
To reap the greatest benefits from intuition, we need ACTION. Be in motion. Act as if your highest expectations have already happened. Be in front of more opportunities and people. Let go of any blocks or attachments. Create mental space and physical space. Plan your work and work your plan.
Miracles rarely happen by doing nothing. Most miracles happen through other people.
What actions can you take that will move you towards your goals?
"Never forget that life can only be nobly inspired and rightly lived if you take it bravely and gallantly, as a splendid adventure in which you are setting out into an unknown country, to meet many a joy, to find many a comrade, to win and lose many a battle."
