Do What You Don't Like Doing!

Thursday, January 14, 2010

The difference between winners and losers is that winners do the things that losers don't like to do. W. Clement Stone says "Success comes to those who try and keep trying with PMA, a Positive Mental Attitude!"

The most powerful nation in the world today is imagination! If you can think it, then you can see it and if you can see it, then you can be it.

Keep your eyes on the prize. Determine what has to be done to achieve the prize and see yourself doing it. Do the distasteful tasks first, then the rest is easy. mark Twain said "If you have to eat two frogs, eat the big one first". He also said "If you eat a frog first thing in the morning, the rest of teh day is easy"

    Great blog! I love the Mark Twain part it is so true! If I get up and get all the bad stuff done right away the rest of the day is so much less stressful.

Good luck on your journey!

Do What Needs to Be Done

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Discipline yourself to do the things you need to do when you need to do them, and the day will come when you will be able to do the things you want to do when you want to do them!" Zig Ziglar

A good corollary to this statement was made by Mike Vance, Dean of Disney University. He said your goal should be to "...do what you do so well that other people will want to show other people how well you do it."

Taken together, these two concepts can ultimately lead to nothing but success! Zig Ziglar's statement is the phenomenon of moving from unconscious incompetence to unconscious competence. You begin unconsciously incompetent. You don't know what you are doing but you don't know enough about it to realize you don't know it. Then you learn enough to realize you are incompetent and have reached conscious incompetence. After you apply yourself, you learn the discipline and realize how well you are doing it and you are consciously competent. The final step is to do what you do so well that you do it without considering your acts. You have now achieved unconscious competence.

One Week Behind Me

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

I sort of coasted from January 1 until the 4th since that was Monday. Last week went well. A bit of a slip on Saturday but enough good behavior the rest of the week to result in a net loss.

Yesterday I made it through day one of week two and so far I have experiences nine hours of today.

One day at a time. By the inch it's a cinch!

    I also waited until the 4th to start. It just seemed easier that way!!! I started with the biggest loser club online for a few days until I found Sparkpeople.com. I am only on this site now and I love it. Keep up the good work!!!!!!!

Write Down Your Goals!

Monday, January 11, 2010

An unwritten want is a wish, a dream, a never-happen. The day you put your goal in writing is the day it becomes a commitment that will change your life. Are you ready?

The Gym Closed!

Sunday, January 10, 2010

I got a telephone call yesterday morning telling me my gym had closed. I really had expected it. The signs were there. The good news is that they transferred the memberships to another gym that is closer to my house and a nicer facility. Another cloud with a silver lining. I also get to meet a whole new group of friends at the new gym. God is in His heaven and all is right with the world.
