Words to ponder...

Saturday, April 17, 2010

Success breeds success:
People who are successful find it easy to repeat their success.
Translation- you need to be Sparking!

Success is never final:
Success must be followed by hard work. You can't give up once you've made it.
Translation - don't think this is a one time shot, this is a lifestyle change which means FOREVER.

Accentuate the positive:
Emphasize the positive in life and any situation.
Translation - This is a hard process until it becomes habit. We need to remove all of the negativity in our thoughts and the people around us.

All for one and one for all:
A group of people who supports each member and stands by the whole group.
Translation - This is why I am on Spark People and you should be on Spark People, it is the for the support from the Community we get. This has made a huge difference for me this time.

All good things come to those who wait:
Patience will help you achieve your desired outcomes.
Translation - You did not put this on overnight and guess what; it will not come off over night. Remember we are all works in progress.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again:
Don't give up too easily; persistence pays off in the end.
Translation - There will be failures but we need to learn from those mistakes and not wallow in them. We need to pick ourselves up and start all over. What we don't need to do is beat ourselves up. It is forward and onward with no looking back.

And for your entertainment some silly quotes I found, the author is unknown.

"With your diet, don't dawdle -- if you don't want to waddle!"

"Bigger snacks means bigger slacks"

"It's better to laugh or to giggle, than to eat more and jiggle!"

One from me: emoticon

  Yvonne I needed this blog today. It reminds me of a tune my dad used to sing, "Accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative, don't fence with anything im between." I think he said they were the Andrews Sisters

    I like the "accentuate the positive"

Too many of us look at the negatives in life and weight loss. We need to be more positive and do what we know is right and the weight will come off and life will look better because we are positive people.

You Go Yvonne!
