The 360 degree turn around

Friday, May 29, 2009

Abraham Maslow believed that the need to grow, to reach our potential, and to self-actualize is an absolutely fundamental need.

According to Maslow, this need to actualize is not a "wish" or a "desire" or a "sure would be nice to have" kind of thing. It's a NEED (like that need we have for oxygen).

To the extent that we've taken care of our more basic needs and we're not satisfying this need to self-actualize, we're gonna live with anxiety, regret and disillusionment. Period.

The specific manifestation of our self-actualizing process is obviously unique and varies greatly from person to person. As Maslow points out, in one individual it may "take the form of the desire to be an excellent parent, in another it may be expressed athletically, and in still another it may be expressed in painting pictures or in inventing things."

However, in all cases, the question remains: What must you be?

Don't we as women spend billions of dollars every year in the quest for bettering ourselves, physically, mentally and emotionally. But did you know that good health is the best-kept beauty secret of all? And it's absolutely free with a little time and effort.
The way we eat. The way we sleep. The way we move. The way we breathe!

Recently and I do mean recently I was able to reconnect with someone who had been the biggest influence on my lifestlye about ten years ago but I had lost track of her and my life became so complicated that I couldn't cope any longer! My mind body and spirit became totally out of sinc!

Why must life be so complicated? The plain and simple truth is it doesn't have to be! Our lives are as complicated as WE ourselves make them!

The truth is we DON'T Have to spend billions when the simplicity of it all is right in front of us. Right under our noses! And what is that simplistic way of life?

Susan has made that so ubundantly clear to me after I reread her book STOP THE INSANITY! It has been a life altering eye opening life saver! She may be blunt and even crude at times but she calls it as she sees it There's no beating around the bush! And it's what I needed to make the 360 degree turn around in my life THANK YOU SUSAN POWTER!

  


REMEMBER, REMIND, RETHINK (REDO)

Friday, May 29, 2009

What has been really helping me to stay focused and on track is REMEMBERING what the wrong food choices did to me. REMINDING myself that I am changing those choices and literally stopping and pausing to RETHINK before I make a choice; what will the consequences be positive or negative to my change of life style

THE 3 R'S
REMEMBER, REMIND, RETHINK

Moving forward to a better you

I am pushing sixty. That is enough exercise for me Mark Twain
Alisa Daglio Body Makeover Expert

Many people in the gym push weights around use body parts that never should
apply to the exercise they are attempting to perform. I applaud every effort
made in the gym but wince when I see people wasting their time. If I had a dime
for every man I saw working his shoulders on a chest press I could probably
purchase an oceanfront estate in Costa Rica. Even more disheartening is when
people mistakenly believe that fitness training alone will provide them with
their dream body. These are the people who exercise constantly (spinning,
hiking, swimming, aerobics etc.) and are devastated when they do not lose
weight. Although they may get stronger, most of these individuals will not be
successful in reshaping their physique. There will be a genetically gifted few
who can look amazing no matter what they do, but the truth is, this is not most
of us

Fitness (having good health or physical condition) does not necessarily
equate to looking the way that you would like to look. Conversely, achieving
your desired physical aesthetic can be very different from being fit. Can you
have both? The answer is yes! You do not have to give up your favorite fitness
sport, but you do need to make time for weight training, proper nutrition, and
fat burning cardio. Never count on a trainer for your weight loss. The most
important key component in changing your body is consuming a proper diet. Your
trainer can help teach you the exercises that you need in order to successfully
reshape your physique but proper nutrition and cardio are 85% of looking
good

When I was training myself for the WPFL (Women's Professional Football
League) I threw aesthetics out the window and went straight to explosive power
moves that caused my legs to grow. I knew that merely weight training would
result in a body that was all show and no go on the field. Ultimately my pants
didn't fit but I attained the power I was looking for. When I competed in the
Miss Pacific Beach Pageant, I realized that my body had to be tight, long, and
lean. I trained myself with light weights and high repetitions coupled with a
clean diet and fat burning treadmill work. Each time my life called for a
change, I altered my training style to suit my goal. The same principle should
apply to you
When approaching any exercise, ask yourself if that exercise is congruent
with your objective. Use common sense and be realistic about it. Are you
balancing on top of a ball and hoping for a better body? Leave the circus to
Britney Spears. If you really think about it, you already know that this big
top act will not leave you looking like a supermodel. The training methods that
you select should be in alignment with your goals. It is always fun to try out
the latest fad in exercise but do not be disappointed when it does not yield the
body results you are seeking. Ask yourself what your first priority is. Is it
having more energy, looking great, excelling in a certain sport, or something
else? Once you decide, you can expedite your results by spending more time on
exercises and lifestyle changes that work for you and less on ones that don't.
Aspire to have a specific purpose in mind, be selective with your activities,
and make the move forward to a better you

  


Plan, Prepare, Proceed Persue

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Our dreams goals and ideas come from our values If what we are doing does not come from what we care about most in life, it is meaningless.
From Frued we learn that the past now exists in the person Now we must learn from growth theory and self-actualization theory that the future also now exsits in the person in the form of ideals, hopes, duties, tasks, plans, goals, unrealized potentials, missions, fates, and destinies. Because one for whom no future exists is reduced to the concrete to hoplessness to emptiness.



Four steps to acheivement
Plan purposefully
Prepare prayerfully
Proceed positively
Pursue persistantly

The Ripples of LIfe!

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shinin' when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neigborhood
But why can't every day be just this good?

The idea of ripples is used to describe the influence the behavior of one person has upon a group.

What ripple effect does your behavior create? Your behavior affects not only you, but everything you touch. If you are in a bad mood it affects your family, friends, and co-workers. Your negative moods influence the checkout clerk at the store, the bus driver, the postman, and the person next to you on the train. Then those people carry it with them and their behavior affects everyone they encounter. Your bad moods are like a virus that spreads through a community.

However, your good moods and positive attitude have the same influence. Realize that you contribute not only to your experience of the world, but how others behave and experience it too. Decide to spread a positive ripple with your attitude and behavior. We are all powerful. We do influence our communities and the world at large.

Decide today to spread a positive ripple)))).

Today as you go through your day, as you are positive with people you encounter, envision in your mind your positive energy as it spreads from person to person. Then when someone is positive with you tomorrow, imagine that is your positive ripple coming back. Keep it going. See the one ripple turn into waves of positive change.

Together we can change the world.
