TO BE AN OPTIMIST AT ALL TIMES
wants to be physically healthy. You want to be mentally healthy as well.
The true measure of “mental fitness” is how optimistic you
are about yourself and your life.
In this newsletter,
you learn how to control your thinking in very specific ways so that you
feel terrific about yourself and your situation, no matter what happens.
YOUR REACTIONS AND REPONSES
There are three basic differences in the reactions of optimists and pessimists.
The first difference is that the optimist sees a setback as temporary,
while the pessimist sees it as permanent. The optimist sees an unfortunate
event, such as an order that falls through or a sales call that fails,
as a temporary event, something that is limited in time and that has no
real impact on the future. The pessimist, on the other hand, sees negative
events as permanent, as part of life and destiny.
The second difference between the optimist and the pessimist is that the
optimist sees difficulties as specific, while the pessimist sees them
as pervasive. This means that when things go wrong for the optimist, he
looks at the event as an isolated incident largely disconnected from other
things that are going on in his life.
SETBACKS AS TEMPORARY EVENTS
For example, if something you were counting on failed to materialize and
you interpreted it to yourself as being an unfortunate event, but something
that happens in the course of life and business, you would be reacting
like an optimist. The pessimist, on the other hand, sees disappointments
as being pervasive. That is, to him they are indications of a problem
or shortcoming that pervades every area of life.
TAKE FAILURE PERSONALLY
The third difference between optimists and pessimists is that optimists
see events as external, while pessimists interpret events as personal.
When things go wrong, the optimist will tend to see the setback as resulting
from external factors over which one has little control.
If the optimist
is cut off in traffic, for example, instead of getting angry or upset,
he will simply downgrade the importance of the event by saying something
like, “Oh, well, I guess that person is just having a bad day.”
on the other hand, has a tendency to take everything personally. If the
pessimist is cut off in traffic, he will react as though the other driver
has deliberately acted to upset and frustrate him.
CALM AND OBJECTIVE
The hallmark of the fully mature, fully functioning, self-actualizing
personality is the ability to be objective and unemotional when caught
up in the inevitable storms of daily life. The superior person has the
ability to continue talking to himself in a positive and optimistic way,
keeping his mind calm, clear and completely under control. The mature
personality is more relaxed and aware and capable of interpreting events
more realistically and less emotionally than is the immature personality.
As a result, the mature person exerts a far greater sense of control and
influence over his environment, and is far less likely to be angry, upset,
THE LONG VIEW
Look upon the inevitable setbacks that you face as being temporary, specific
and external. View the negative situation as a single event that is not
connected to other potential events and that is caused largely by external
factors over which you can have little control. Simply refuse to see the
event as being in any way permanent, pervasive or indicative of personal
incompetence of inability.
think like an optimist, no matter what happens. You may not be able to
control events but you can control the way you react to them.
Now, here are three actions you can take immediately to put these ideas
yourself continually that setbacks are only temporary, they will soon
be past and nothing is as serious as you think it is.
upon each problem as a specific event, not connected to other events and
not indicative of a pattern of any kind. Deal with it and get on with
that when things go wrong, they are usually caused by a variety of external
events. Say to yourself, “What can’t be cured must be endured,”
and then get back to thinking about your goals.
Great Ab Exercises That Will Battle The Bulge
Come almost back to the starting point to complete each rep of a set of
crunches, but don´t go all the way to the floor and release the
tension on your abs. Hold and squeeze your abs for a second or two at
the top of the movement. Use full range of motion for fewer repetitions
instead of pumping hundreds that only move a few inches.
2. Vertical Leg Crunch
Want to get more out of your crunches? Do them with your legs straight
up. Contract your abs to curl your torso up while you extend your arms
toward your feet.
The vacuum is an old abdominal exercise where you just suck in your stomach
and hold it for a couple of seconds. Some of the old time bodybuilders
were very impressive with this one as a pose. You can use it for a little
extra ab conditioning now and then just about wherever you are.
4. Better Crunches
For exercising abs, it is good to do crunches with your back on the ground,
your thighs perpendicular to the ground, and your calves parallel to the
ground. Then lift keeping your back straight, hold for a few seconds,
and lower slowly. As you do this, breathe out when lifting yourself, then
in when lowering back to the floor.
5. Try Bench Crunches
Try the bench crunch for a challenging ab workout. Lie on your back with
your lower legs on a bench, knees bent 90 degrees. With your lower back
on the floor, cross your arms over your chest and curl up slowly, raising
your shoulder blades off the floor.
Negative Sit ups
Try negative sit ups for a good ab workout. Start in a sitting position
on the floor or an ab bench, knees bent and feet on the floor. Contract
your abs and keep them tight while you lower yourself slowly, curling
down back first until you´re lying on the floor, or until you lose
control. Push yourself back up and repeat.
hydrated during your ab work out will make it even more effective. 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

it is at the moment.’"
