Push That Tush -- Practice Optimal Thinking

emoticon PUSH THAT TUSH -- Be the Person You Want To Be

Almost everyone I know has issues (some are just better at hiding it than others).
When you get stuck in a world of negatives,
you sink in further and prevent yourself from actually living.
If you can look at life as it is, and find the best options available to you,
and then make those choices,
you move forward, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
You are better able to find peace with the world and with yourself.

Seeing the glass half full is a choice...
and what you do with that glass is called life.
---------

An interesting article from Optimal Thinking.com Dr Rosalene Glickman
www.optimalthinking.com/
visualization.html


"Our minds can’t easily distinguish between what we visualize and what we actually experience. Many experiments support this. One well-known experiment by psychologists involved a number of men divided into three groups. One group practiced basketball every day, the second mentally visualized themselves practicing, and the third—the control group—did neither. The study found that the men who physically practiced and those who mentally practiced were equally good on the court. The control group lost to both groups.

Other experiments have shown that when people visualize themselves performing an action—running, for example—the muscles associated with that action contract in small but definite amounts. You can prove this to yourself by closing your eyes and imagining yourself sucking on a lemon. Your mouth will pucker and start to water.

Optimal visualization enables you to convey to your subconscious mind exactly what you want by using the best pictures and symbols and all of your senses. By giving yourself the Optimal preview, the desired result becomes real and concrete and you prepare yourself to experience the best. You start to adjust yourself toward having what you want by incorporating it physically, emotionally, and mentally. Optimal visualization prepares you to reach your most desired goals. You deserve the best life has to offer!"

    What a great way to think. Your inner tapes are going to play anyway, so you might as well choose the positive tape. You feel happier, lighter, and better about whatever you're doing. Works for me! Have a great day Sheryl!

    You are right, you're as happy as you choose to be. I choose to be happy with my current self, while striving to become a better version of myself everyday. Sometimes, tho, it's just nice to hear someone tell you it's ok to be happy but strive for more.

Thanks!

    I love these pictures! Often motivational posters picture very slim people - I love that yours are much more realistic/match where many Sparkers are today in their healthy journey. It reminds me that we do all have strength inside of us, even if it doesn't feel like showing itself on some days.

  I was riding on some challenging mountian bike trails (for me) yesterday. I was having a great time and then thought about falling over. Well, of course, I fell over. We are what we think.
Thank you for your beautiful and inspiring writing.

    I once heard a race car driver say when he was asked "What about the wall when your driving the track?"
The driver responded with "I know the wall is there BUT if I focus on that wall I will hit it - I can't look at it or that is where I will drive."

I love that picture and I ain't a race car fan
