Go for your dreams!

Thursday, July 17, 2008

How can you make a big dream come true?

You need to have one secret element, and when you have that secret element, nothing will get in your way. That element is an intense desire! You must desire something with all of your heart to manifest it. Often the difference between those who manifest something and those who do not, is the element of desire. When you have a burning desire for something you ignite a fire within you that attracts with an incredible force. The law of attraction is magnetically drawn to that intense fire element in you, and it responds by gathering all universal forces to make your dream come true.

Very often we ask for things because we think our life will be better with those things, but inside of us we do not have an immense desire for those things. When you don't feel that immense desire within you, you are receiving guidance telling you that this is not something you really want. That is why it is so important to get clear on what it is that you really want with all of your heart, because what you really want with all of your heart is the very desire that you can manifest quickly.

When your heart is on fire with desire you will attract the right things to do, you will find visualizing so easy, and you will find it is effortless to think positive thoughts of your desire. You will attract all the qualities you need, such as strength, courage, belief, persistence, faith, and a powerful will. An intense desire lights up your being, producing a magnetic force that enables the law of attraction to cut through every physical obstacle for you and make your dream come true.

Go for your dreams! Don't cheat yourself in your life with petty desires because you don't think you can live your dream. THE DREAM inside you is the one thing that you have the greatest power to create, because you have an immense desire for it. Find the dream inside you - and make it come true!


How much more specific can I be?

Monday, July 14, 2008

How specific are we about our goals? How determined, comitted and motivated? And the biggest and most important question is, Just how serious are we?
Are our goals detailed enough so that we can reach them? We all have aspirations and we are better off for having made them. But if our goals are too vague or unstructured, we're going to find that attaining them is difficult. Wanting to lose 30 pounds is a wonderful goal, but we need a plan to get us on the right track; keep us on the right track. Keep us focused and motivated every day 24/7. We all know these things don't happen overnight. We know that it's going to take time, patience and above all effort. How much effort are we putting into our goals each day? So today,let's think about our goals and form a plan to achieve them. Write them down, blog them, chart your progress, refer to them as often as we need to stay on track, and most importantly, we absolutely need to hold ourselves accountable.

I can't seem to lose pounds at least not according to my scales the last six months Does this discourage me? It did at first but not anymore because I no longer focus on scale numbers but I most certainoy focus on the numbers of a measuring tape and the size stamped into my clothing size!

So yes I step off once in awhile but even in doing that I am still with keeping a watchful eye on portion sizes and calorie, fat and carb limits. So yes I defiently enjoy a treat once inwhile It is allowable.
But my goals daily are to make sure i have eaten enough and have eaten the right foods; made the right choices, I've drank my water of 8 10 ounce glasses a day. And I do my cardio every day for at least a hlf hour;always ends up being more LOL and I am doing my strength training exercises Mon Wed and Fridays.
I've decluttered and dejunked my fridge and cupbards of all refined bad carbs and replaced them with complex carbs. And in doing all of this I KNOW it is paying off! I AM MAKING PROGRESS! I DO NOT set a time line or specific time goal. It's one day at a time one week at a time one month at a time.

And I certainly DO NOT look at the whole picture; the lump sum opf what I have to and need to lose!

These are my stratagies my goals? How much more specific can I be?

    That is an awesome way to look at it. I am definitely try to take some of the emphasis off the scale. I know my working out is making me feel so much better. My husband has noticed an improvement on my mood.

    I love this blog. I have redone my goals to be short ones. I am going for 5 pounds at a time and when that 5 pounds is gone, then I will go for 5 more. I too am not worried about the scale as much as how I feel and how my clothes fit. I know that I am building muscle and toning. I can see those love handles getting smaller LOL :)

We can narrow down our goals to the fact that we feel better than we did last week and the week before. If that is our goal, then no matter what the scale says, we are a success :)

    You GO Girl!!!

It's all about making healthy choices today, it's that next inch, that next pound, and knowing that while you might hit a plateau now and again, as long as you make healthy choices daily, you are becoming healthier every day.

    This is why I only try to tackle 10 pounds at a time and then the 10% comes second - if I were to try the whole 140 at once, I'd never get anywhere ^..^

HA one for old Marge!

Saturday, July 12, 2008

Ok this allergy/cold can take a hike! It's dragging me down! Yesterday I had next to no gumption to do anything let alone work but we did it I wasn't going to call in just because......
HIt the pillow at eight last night and slept like a baby the whole night actually hit REM sleep! Feeling rested thismornign Have had my shower and washed my hair too. Always wakes me up at least for awhile! LOL
Yesterday I could have strung up the previous owner and boss of the store! HE came in there and was dissing this and dissing that Finally I said You know Rod who was it that sold the store? They are not going to run things the way you did. They have their ideas and so far they seem to be working and business has really picked up since we changed suppliers. He was dissing the produce section in particular because it wasn't completely full! Well DOH we had had sales already that morning by the time he came in for his apricots! And being stock day my concentration was on that. On stock days the boss looks after the produce while I look after stalk and customers.
So I finally said to him Well Rod I have been getting nothing but compliments and rave reviews on the produce section since I took it over. They're even saying it is far better than the competitions next door As a matter of fact I have them beat!
His mouth snapped shut and I never heard another word He bought his fruit and left! HA one for old Marge!

    I am so glad you made your self heard and you didn't allow negative talk to disrupt your day. You are doing a wonderful job I am sure. could you please come work in the produce dept at the grocery store in my town It needs some TLC.

I am also glad that you pointed out that successes were seen in different avenues of the store. I hope God blesses you this week and you feel better. I hate cold/allergies and struggle myself sometimes. It is funny, but exercise actually helps me to breathe better when I am all stuffed up .

You will get better and you will be moving and shakin things up :)

    You go girl! It sounds like you really enjoy your work. I'm happy for you.

I finally bit the dust & got some medicine for my allergies. Had too, I was coughing so much I couldn't sleep. Can't take long acting antihistamines, so my pcm hooked me up with flonase. It's working, I'm sleeping great.

Valuing time

Thursday, July 10, 2008

Know the true value of time; snatch, seize and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness...never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.

- Lord Chesterfield

Often our days are busied with worry, stress, complaining, work, and a general wasting of time. Once we finally realize the value of our time, often for many of us it is too late. While your life might seem like a long time in the midst of it, truly it is a blink of an eye. Today, let's make more time to be present in your lives. Even small moments--enjoying a cup of tea, calling a friend, logging into your Sparks team and participating in conversation--should be enjoyed. So let's restructure our day so that we can get all of our work done, but allow for extra time to be spent on personal matters. Stop put off till tomorrow what you can do today; pocrastinating!

    My husband actually came home to take me to lunch today. Talk about taking those moments. He never leaves work to go to lunch. I usually fix him lunch to take with him. So it was a special day for me, nothing like a surprise lunch with the DH :)

Hope everyone else takes some time today as well :)

a big difference

Wednesday, July 09, 2008

Lighting fires in the cold

It is very easy to complain about the state of the world and point fingers, especially when you're having a bad day. What is not so easy--and yet desperately needed at times--is for people to step up and make a difference. Don't be intimidated by others, wallow in your own negative feelings, or sit back and assume someone will do it when you are capable yourself! Relating to others around you isn't always easy, but lending a helping hand, extending a hand in friendship, or expressing a word of encouragement can make a big difference to someone. The fate of many has been changed by the actions of just one person who has grown tired of "how it's always been done" and instead turns and does something more positive. The world does not demand of you to give your entire life, but we can all be instruments of positive change. What can you do to make this world better?

    Instead of complaining about our leaders, let's pray that God guide their decisions and let God's glory shine in the world. Show love to everyone, not just a select few. Share our prosperity with those less fortunate. Smiles brighten people's lives. Call those you worry about and let them know they are loved. Try to skip the grocery bags at the supermarket. Have boxes in your car to carry the food in. Recycle as much as is allowed in your town. Take care of yourself so you can care for others.

just a few :)
