ASPIRING FOR GREATNESS!!!!

INSPIRATION….

“…..Inspiration is typically viewed as something that comes and goes. Some days you “feel it” more than others.

But what if you could be deeply and unconditionally inspired everyday? I bet it would make a difference in the quality of your life. You would probably wake up excited to start your day. You’d get more done, be more creative and feel more of that elusive “flow.” Being inspired also means enjoying the process more, instead of feeling forced and unnatural.

The best part of persistent inspiration is that action tends to be effortless. There isn’t so much trying, rather you’re more simply being and allowing whatever action is natural to flow out from you.

HOW FAR CAN YOU REACH

Most of us just wait for inspiration though. We passively anticipate our muse, instead of actively seeking it out.

“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.“

~Jack London….”

As always wishing you a Fresh Start Everyday!!

Don’t put off until tomorrow that which you can enjoy today!

The clock is ticking, you’d better start living!

A BIG THANK YOU

Thought I would share this article with you guys, as I know its always nice to feel and be appreciated.  How often do you say thank you and actually mean it.  Or do you feel used by your loved ones and unappreciated.

The next time you say thank you to someone, make sure you really mean it, and as Mr. Colan says, start tomorrow by expressing your thanks to those closest to you.

I’m starting RIGHT NOW:)  THANK YOU ALL FOR LIKING THIS PAGE!!

Two Words to Motivate

By Lee Colan, PhD.

How do I really motivate my team, my kids, my spouse, my anyone?

It’s an age-old question with a myriad of different answers… too many to even summarize here.

So, in our information overloaded world, let me boil it down to this. If you want to motivate, then appreciate. The two most powerful words for any leader, parent, teacher or colleague are “Thank You!” I added the exclamation point to make sure we really mean it when we say it. Don’t just say it to get something in return—that’s called trading versus thanking. Say it because you mean it, because you appreciate what someone has done, but more important, because you appreciate who they are. We do more for those who appreciate us.

We have an annual day of Thanksgiving but, I challenge you to:

Start tomorrow by expressing your thanks to those closest to you.

Then make thanksgiving an everyday event.

For me, I sincerely THANK YOU for your support and encouragement!

Where there is life there is Hope

TRUTH isn’t a matter of your personal viewpoint…

Learn to see things as they really are, not as you imagine they are.

what lies within us

Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or who says it.

No matter what you believe, it never changes the facts.

If they are there, the facts always speak for themselves.

The truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of people.

If sixty million people say a foolish thing, it’s still a foolish thing.

The sky is no less blue because the blind man does not see it.

Just a little Encouragement….

Every day is an opportunity for a Fresh Start!

What CHOICE will you MAKE

When you wake up in the morning you have two choices... go back to sleep and dream your dreams or wake up & chase those dreams

 

“But until a person can say deeply and honestly,
“I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday,”
that person cannot say,
“I choose otherwise.”

 Everyday is an opportunity for a  FreshStart! 

Losing Weight ~ Mistakes We Make

losing weight

Do you keep trying and trying to lose weight and the pounds just won’t vanish? Well, you’re not alone. According to the Boston Medical Center, there are 45 million other individuals just like you spending $33 billion on products promising to help.

Whatever your weight loss goals may be, you can increase your chances for long-term success, if you follow some simple rules.

  • Don’t let the bathroom scale scare you. Muscle weighs more than fat so, that scale you put all your faith in,Losing-Weight-Mistakes-150x150 does not calculate the difference. Put that scale away! The anxiety it causes isn’t worth psyching yourself out.
  • Diet Soda be gone! It isn’t a health drink or weight loss aid and not yet known to be effective for preventing obesity and related health problems, according to the Mayo Clinic.
  • Work out with a buddy. It’s been proven that people are more successful losing weight when they have someone supporting them, pushing them onward, and looking for the same results.
  • Eat before you sweat. Consuming a high-protein meal prior to your work out will boost your metabolism and calorie burn.
  • Heavy or Light – Bigger weights scare most people from even trying them. That’s a loss, however. Heavier weights at fewer reps will burn more calories.
  • Cardio – Is it enough? Most individuals think a daily cardio workout is all they need to lose weight. Strength training is an important element that will aid in burning fat.
  • Skipping Breakfast – Eating protein first thing in the a.m. will help to curb those cravings that hit you mid-morning. Yogurt, fresh fruit, a protein shake, cottage cheese or scrambled eggs will do the trick.
