The Taste of Success

Sunday, April 01, 2012

Feeling successful and prosperous today. The ongoing lifestyle change continues to flourish, and the renos we have recently decided on are being accomplished too! Though I may be tempted to rest and revel in my triumph, instead, I've been harnessing this energy and using it to fuel the pursuit of larger goals. Reaching one plateau of achievement after the other makes me feel confident enough to push and strive for the next.

A small taste of success can often whets the appetite for larger accomplishments. Timidity or a sense that we do not deserve to achieve our biggest goals can compel us to focus on smaller aims or pursue only those opportunities that we are familiar with. The smallest triumph, however, can effectively demonstrate that we are equipped and ready to follow the path of our dreams. Small successes increases our confidence in our skills and ability to handle responsibility. When we look back on what we have achieved, we’re are definitely more apt to optimistically think about our expectations. As a result, the goals we set for ourselves will be more challenging but also more richly rewarding. Tasting success today will motivate us to seek greater heights of accomplishment.

Keeping things simple

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

It is always tough when we see someone we care about struggling, in pain, or hurting and feel like we need to fix it or do something to help ease their troubles. While they may want our help, it is important to keep in mind that what they're really wanting and needing is not necessarily your advice, but rather your presence in the moment, your undivided attention, an ear, a shoulder, to lean on, since it can be all too easy to get carried away and say or do more than is really needed. Even though we may want to do more, we do not have to do anything other than to be a good friend Allowing ourselves to let go and simply exist in the present with another person may actually provide a greater amount of comfort and support than we could ever imagine.

The more we are attuned to what our loved ones are feeling, the more capable we are of truly giving what is best for them in their hour of need. Keeping things simple helps us give the part of ourselves that is capable of the greatest amount of compassion—open ears and an understanding heart.

Superior Immunity? Absolutely Obtainable!

Monday, March 26, 2012

Even though we have our present health issues I completely believe and have faith in that we can without a doubt obtain and maintain superior health.
I know you're all thinking how is that possible with all the health issues I have. But it is with out question a possibility!

Super, superior, flawless, impeccable, health doesn't mean we have to be some invincible mythical god. What it does mean simply is that the body's immune system is working to its fullest potential. And it's as easy as learning to fill every cell receptor with the right, the highest micro-nutrient foods that meet the demands of each cell. Doing this causes the body's defenses to take on superhero qualities! This greatly reduces and limits the possibilities of becoming sick. And this changes your immunity from average to superior which greatly increases life saving attributes.

Have you not noticed that even a mild infection can hang on for weeks? Worse yet there is greater possibility that it can develop more serious consequences; developing into a hard to treat bacterial infection such as life threatening pneumonia?

Our immune systems are suppose to act as our protective guardian angels watching over our lives, protecting us from the risks around us. The same white blood cells combined with the other immune system's components that fight off infections are also there to recognize our human cells should they become abnormal and to remove them before they evolve into a life threatening tumor or cancer.
But how can our bodies provide us this life saving service if our immune systems have been compromised and broken down by abuse? Yes we have. We have abused our bodies with eating the lowest of lowest micro-nutrient foods with next to no nutritional value what so ever; high calorie, high sodium, high fat, wrong fats, high carb, refined carbs instead of complex carbs. These give us NOTHING, absolutely nothing to build the immunity armor against infections and disease that our immune systems need to keep us safe.
Today we are being exposed to more dangerous and highly infectious disease from around the globe than ever before. On top of which we have another modern epidemic affecting our population; cancer. It has become the most urgent matter that superior immunity is needed now, more than ever. It is my belief that even with the abusive damage we have done with today's modern diet, we, together can turn this around.

And I have to concur with Dr Joel Fuhrman. We are living in a time period of rapid scientific advancement and all of this new knowledge most definitely can be applied to help us live better, longer, and happier than we have in the past and than we are in the present. And I also agree whole heatedly, that exposure to more medical care, more chemical drugs, vaccines and doctors does not beget the superior immutability and that medical care is actually a part of the problem, not the solution!
When we think of preventative medicine and proper health care we have become so brainwashed and accustomed and acceptable to running to the doctor for shots, medications, and diagnostic tests. It has become our immediate thought process and sole belief system!
Initially these solutions may help Until they stop working! What then? The problem simply persists and most often worse than before, and becomes a chronic health issue and it a vicious cycle.
Why, because the complications occur because of impaired natural immunity that has resulted from a combination of deficient nutrition and medications that have degraded our body's ability to protect itself.
Not only does a weakened immune system leave us vulnerable but evidence shows that over use of antibiotics and other medications may be a contribution factor in the growth of Cancers.
So, what is the solution? There is one. Protecting Yourself with Superior Immunity!

    Luv this and concur fully! Dr. Fuhrman has a great program. I have been listening to all the lectures of his I could find and each one solidifies my resolve toward providing my body with what it needs for superior immunity.

So, when are you going to stop limiting yourself?

Monday, March 26, 2012

It's no secret that losing weight can be tough, and sometimes just thinking about it can be intense. One of the keys to successful weight loss is creating a positive association with all of the hard work involved, using commitment, consistency and control, be it exercising, healthy eating, or just staying on track when face-to-face with temptations and hurdles. In fact, having a negative attitude (like saying, "I hate it...") can actually make things harder!
"When we say we hate something, we refuse to do it, try it, or 'stretch' ourselves. Hate equals limits. So, when are you going to stop limiting yourself?"
"Now that I read this post, I have to admit that I have done the same thing. Sometimes when I get frustrated with something, I just say I hate it and don't want to do it anymore. I think I am going to stop limiting myself starting this week. I am going to make this a challenge for me. If I stop saying that I hate doing something, I might find the positives in doing whatever it is that I "hate" doing."
It's incredible how powerful a positive mindset can be especially when it comes to the seemingly impossible physical tasks and mental hurdles. So many of us are used to quitting before we have a chance to succeed just so we can say that we never failed. Well, you know what? Hmm it seems that non-accomplishment can be an essential tool for success after all!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts here. Love the blog. So many of us are guilty of doing this, not just on SP and the challenges of taking this journey, but also in other aspects of our lives....I really don't like doing things well, but I keep forgetting that I can't do it well if I don't keep trying. Thanks again for the wake up! emoticon

Energy Anyone?

Monday, March 26, 2012

WOOT! WOOT! My enthusiasm for pursuits are running higher than normal these days! I know that the focus of my efforts may seem vague to others, but I love pushing myself and applying my efforts to the tasks that are important to me. I actually find myself crafting and then initiating plans that are out of sheer spontaneity. My energy levels are continuing to skyrocket, leaving me feeling confident that I WILL now be able to complete my objectives in the time I allot myself. I'm feeling vivacious and optimistic.

You do know that we seldom tire when working on projects that enthuse us because the copious amounts of energy we devote to the tasks before us are returned to us in the form of increased stamina and determination? This alternating transference of vigor ensures that we not only feel positive about things that are unfolding around us in the present but also optimistic about the manner in which our plans will pan out in the future. As we draw energy from our enthusiasm and exhilaration of emotions, we find that we have seemingly bottomless stores of endurance available to us. We can thus apply ourselves wholeheartedly and vivaciously to the duties we deem important without taxing ourselves unduly or throwing our lives into imbalance. The eagerness with which you immerse yourself in your passions will help you accomplish more than you might otherwise have thought possible!

    This is right on the money! If the project is worth pursuing, I'll be in there like an old dirty shirt... but if it doesn't interest me... it'll never hold my interest!

Excellent Blog!
