Daily Challenge - We spend much of our time in normal routines, which provides comfort and stability , adding new things, habits, traditions or learning new things such as language , a new cooking dish, games, can wake up a part of you and create new neurological connections ( if maintained) that make you feel alert, alive and keep you feeling the gratitude daily.
set out to do something new or different today and as often as you wish, maybe join the meatless Monday habit , maybe learn a few new phases in another language, wake up a new spice palate and try a food completely new to you, try a different form of exercise one maybe that you have heard of but just never got to it, change you drawers around so that you have to use different connections to recall where things are, ( so easy to keep things in the same place but just simply switching the towel drawer and silverware can create a difference) go to your local library and research a new topic or one that just sounded interesting when you heard someone mention it ( I know the computer at home seems easier but doing it's easy to forget when you know you have a shortcut ready to go) go to the local animal shelter and see if you can volunteer for a couple of hours, rearrange your furniture to create a new feel, learn about habits or traditions of a different area , research where you live and discover how it looked or functioned 75=100 years ago, .
We thrive when we are learning and when we older we can choose what we want to learn and enjoy learning it, so wake up new sensations and thrive!

Your Challenge - Each and everyday we are faced with CHOICES , most we don't give a second thought to, some are more of a struggle, all of are CHOICES are important, but we may not realize just how important they can be.
taking the few seconds to make CHOICES to improve are a catapult into a an amazing life ! all of the little CHOICES are not just little things they are everything ! making improvements every day on our lives can lead us to a life that we find exciting, rewarding and gets us up in the morning with a drive to live a wonderful new day! .
Make each and every day a day to improve in some small way, not just in one category of your life but in every one of them, your physical, emotional, spiritual , what you choose to eat, who you spend time with, your beverage, your exercise, what you choose to focus on in any given moment, what you do for recreational fun, the direction of your conversations , how you allow others to treat you, whether or not you see challenges as a stepping stone or a brick wall, your CHOICE to open yourself up to new areas and discover new passions.
Make it a daily challenge to improve each and everyone of your day's in some way, even if it is at the end of your day, do something to make it better, make it a mindset !, make it a passion to increase the quality of your life everyday, no matter how small or huge , live your life with passion each day knowing that your are not only making your life better but for those around you as well, increasing the quality of your life always spills over and effects those around you , at home or at work, same would go for the opposite, but we have no time to focus on that because we have our aim much higher.

Today's Challenge - we accept things easily for the biggest part , including the definitions we have of ourselves which could be our own but they could be taught to us, with good intentions by our parents, friends, family, the T.V., points of view given to us by others we may not know, lets take the time to discover the real us !.
have you just stopped to wonder why you did something or where a observation or that small voice inside of your head came from? lol we get input from every which way we can even think of turning, most of the time no realizing just how big or what kind of impact it could have, so many are opinions that someone may have "in the moment" some are bias to a certain agenda or attainment of something, some just want to simply have you feel the way they do, some are very good intentions others just talk to fill the space between words, lol.
We can go back as far as you can remember and recall a loved one telling you something and it is still with you to this day, some may be good, which I am sure many are but some just may not be "YOU" at all so lets discover you! get to know why you pick an item at the market or store? are there any conclusions you jump to before hearing both sides?, do you find that you may give up without much effort on any one thing simply because you can't see making it or completing it ?, Do you shun anything in particular because of something that was strongly worded to you or maybe you can not recall this but feel a certain angst against something and are not sure why .
Do you see or read about something that intrigues you but don't follow through ? well today or anytime in the near future get into it as part of your self awareness discovery and see where it takes you, this could be a fun self examination , it could also bring up very hostile feelings, if it does try not to let yourself hang onto any ill feelings, the only one that it hurts it you, maybe you can write a strongly worded letter describing how you feel to a person that has wronged you , do not send it but find a proper way to dispose of it( I have a suggestion if you are interested message me).
Discovering the best part of you, the unique person that is 100% you is a mission we can be on without end, we are constantly changing, discovering and renewing ourselves so enjoy your discovery's , enjoy being you and enjoy learning what really makes you the wonderful person your really are!.

I thought I would add a challenge for the week.

We all have tasks that we complete, as do those around us. The challenge for the week is to complete someone else's task, whether it a self imposed one or not. I do a lot around the house, cook, clean, laundry, and other "manly" things. But I mainly leave the bathroom cleaning to the wife. So this week I will clean the bathroom from top to bottom.

And as my second (or first) task is to post this challenge. I think we all rely on Harperlady to post these challenges when there is no reason we can't throw one out there from time to time.

Have a great week,

Matt

Today's Challenge _ are you asking the right questions? are they empowering or defeating? do your questions open up possibilities , leave you feeling like you can get things done? or make you feel like you have hit a brick wall and have to break it down with your bare hands?
Possibility question empower the world around you, they empower you to make things happen, see possibilities that were dead ends before, instead of asking " Why can't I lose weight?" ask "how can I lose weight and enjoy it" allow the questions to become daily, set yourself in a habit of asking possibility questions, "how can I make this day just a little bit better?" " What if I took a new challenge for a couple of days to see where it takes me" "What if I changed how I look at one thing and see it completely different, maybe gets some points of view and see how it challenges me to see things in a new perspective?" .
It is a wonderful challenge to open you up to new possibilities , asking new , empowering questions and lead you to a path that you may have not considered , open you up to situations that are new and exciting , maybe turning new interests into a full time hobby or job, making each day more exciting and fun .

Today's Challenge - notice your thought patterns, seems simple right? but it goes beyond just what you think about when you are daydreaming or just doing noting in between main things.
When you see something we are often given an impression, these impressions can set into motion a down hill or make us happy, we get these emotions from many things in our lives, on your way to work, the store, a friends house, the park, a restaurant, we see many things along the way and they can leave an impression on us , some may seem kind of dark and gloomy , bight and cheery or anything in between .
Today and throughout this week notice what gives you an emotion, they don't always stand out but it in noticing these things that we control more of what we allow to happen to us.

Today's Challenge - investigate the things that you hold onto, opinions you are not willing to change, are you set in your ways in any particular circumstances ? are you fighting to hold on? unwilling to give up ?.
What are you fighting to maintain ? we often put shields up to guard against fear, change, unknown while exploring new could be just what would or could should I say help us with the discontent we may feel, with underlying anger, Take a look or think to what upsets you the most, what sets you off, what opinion do you refuse to budge on ?.
how would it feel, if you relaxed and just allowed the change, whether it is a long term change or a stepping stone change, what different opinion could you take ? what outlook could you change that will lighten up a new path of circumstances ? what if you did something as simple as to change how you dress for work or any place you might go on a regular basis ?.
Take time to notice in what ways you're being stubborn and give yourself a little room to move, The breathing space might do you a lot of good.

Today's challenge - take time , during your breaks, sets times that you choose or go by something that may happen every couple of hours and take time to monitor how you've been thinking about things or the state from which you have been viewing them, we can see things by our own judgement and perhaps that of others , so take a step to view how you see things to keep them in the telescope of your choosing .
When we get use to situations, people or the momentum of others we narrow our view and our scope becomes a repeated, mindless stream that we just go with and sometimes enforce , checking at least every couple of hours to see things from a different perspective or simply make sure the it is our own perspective can help us keep our "secret" perspective and begin or continue to keep us focused in a wonderful, positive, delightful, let us be happy direction, letting go of what others might think and replace it proudly with our cheerful own.

They are being read by me. This is an ongoing challenge that I have been working with. I took up a challenge to journal the positive things that I do a day. I pay attention to the choices I make by keeping with my new mantra of "Today is another Tomorrow".

I appreciate you posting these challenges, it often helps me keep focus or view actions from a different side.

Thanks

Matt

Today's Challenge- lets make it our weeks challenge but do this daily, take a moment to challenge each choice that we make that could become a negative influence on us or if what choice we are making will influence us to make better choices.
When you scarf down a fatty cheeseburger , do you feel later feel like you over did it? does it lead to another not so healthy choice? when you decide to drink a glass of water does it make you feel better in your choices? When you log in your food does it make you feel like you have more control? if you say to yourself , Just one won't hurt does it lead to more? if you start your day with a vitamin, a workout, a stretch , quite time does it make your day run more smoothly ?.
there are many choices we make that can influence us and taking a couple of seconds to ensure quality choices can create a huge impact on our lives, insuring that we are getting the results we want and abstaining from things that can create a sense of failure and lead to more destructive choices, this can extend to work, personal relationships and health .



( I post these challenges on a hit and miss basis as I am not sure if they're being read)

Today's Challenge - points of view , there are so many, including our own, it is easy to take your point of view as the one to always go by but we could be eliminating very useful and helpful points from others.
Take today to get into the points of views of others, understand them the best you can, without judgement or condemnation , sometimes if getting out around others is not possible maybe watch a talk show and see how if you can understand why they say what they do or accept their points as one valid of many.
this can be a good conversation starter as well and might teach you something along the way, maybe, if you feel bold enough after you get started, find someone who you know has a different point of view and , without intent to argue and if you do apologize and let them continue , and discover why they have the point they do.
Have a wonderful, warm day!

Have a great weekend!!

Today's Challenge ( from The Magic) day19, are you keeping up with your 10 things to be grateful for and why?
Magic footsteps
" A hundred times a day I remind myself that the inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that is why I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and still receiving" Albert Einstein
Today we will follow in Einsteins footsteps , you will say THANK YOU one hundred times, while it might seem unbelievable to you that taking footsteps can make a difference in your life, you will discover it is one of the most powerful things you can do.
To take Magic footsteps today you take one step and in your mind say the magic words THANK YOU , as your foot touches the ground say THANK YOU ,as your other foot touches the ground thank you, next foot thank you and continue saying the Magic words.
The magic steps can be anywhere, your home, the store, to the car, to the kitchen, one room to the next, take notice how you feel before you begin , then take notice of how you feel afterward, you may not feel it as you're taking the steps but you will feel it after, I promise.
To make the most effective magic footsteps , take Magic footsteps for about 90 seconds, an average of how long it take to get in 100 steps, take at least 100 steps, it could be more but get in at least 100 , it will take that many steps to notice a difference in how you feel.
you can use this practice any time you might feel down and need to feel better.
Hold your gratitude rock and think of the best thing that happened to you today and say THANK YOU.

With the holiday here it is getting tougher to post daily, ( I apologize ) so will resume posting after Christmas, , I started at a bad time , not realizing the timing , sorry for any convenience, practicing the feeling of gratitude can still be a daily challenge, making your list of 10 and why, extending it out into other things as well, again I am deeply sorry for this . emoticon

Today's Challenge ( from The Magic) day 18 do your 10 items that you are thankful for and why.
today's practice will show you how to lean on gratitude even more , everyday there are life's little problems that come up and need solving, sometimes we feel overwhelmed if we are not sure how to solve a situation, maybe you feel overwhelmed from work, wanting more free time , but you can't see how to have it, taking care of your children, you want to find the perfect pet, baby sitter, , hairdresser, dentist ,doctor, getting things resolved with someone you had a dispute with , where things seem to get worse.
Today we will make out a to-do-list to help you with any little day to day problems, when you don't know what to do or when you simply want something done for you, you will be amazed at the results.
Create a list of the most important things you would like to be done or resolved for you, title your list The Magic to-do-list, put things on your list you don't have time to do or that you do not want to do, along with any current problems from the smallest day to day things to bigger life situations, think through each area of your life where you need something resolved or done for you.
when you've finished making your list choose 3 things from your list to focus on today, one at a time imagine each one has been done for you , imagine that all people, circumstance and people have been moved to do it for you, all done all sorted , all solved for you.follow the same practice for the rest of your list.
Like attracts like so be grateful for the things that have been done on your list, be grateful for the solutions as though you have them , be a magnet for the solution, not a magnet for the problem.
before you go to sleep tonight hold your magic rock and say THANK YOU for the best thing that has happened today.

Today's Challenge ( from The Magic ) day 17-are you keeping your list of ten things you are grateful for and why?
When you direct gratitude's power towards a negative condition and new condition is created, feeling grateful for money, more than you feel lack, you are replacing it with more money.
Negative feelings about money push it away , feelings about money like envy, disappointment , worry, or fear push away receiving more, like attracts like, so if you feel you don't have enough money you will receive more circumstances to cause these feelings towards money.
however difficult it may be, you have to ignore any lack of money you have , you can't be grateful and disappointed at the same time, or fearful and worried , being grateful may include anything that you are able to purchase, bills that are paid.
there are many different avenues that money can come into your life, many of these are gratitude's power and not being grateful for each time your riches or money increase, you can stop the flow of abundance from flowing to you .
Money can come to you through receiving an unexpected check, increase in salary , lottery win , tax refund, a gift, someone picks up your tab for dinner, when you purchase an item that has been discounted, money back-offer on a purchase, someone gives you a gift of something you needed to buy, the end result of any of these circumstances is that you have more money, be grateful for any money received through any circumstance.
You can get an abundance check from www.thrsecret.tv/ magiccheck.
Today's practice you are going to write out the magic check to yourself , fill in the amount of money you want to receive, be specific about the amount for one thing you really want, because because you will be able to feel more gratitude for money when you know how you're going to spend it.money is a means to what you want but it's not the end result , if you just though about money per se you wouldn't feel as much gratitude , imagining the things you really want or doing the things you really want you are far more grateful.
You can start with a smaller amount and keep increasing after you have received it, starting with a smaller amount is that when you receive it you will know you did it, then larger amounts will be believable to you.
Once you have filled out the check hold it in your hand and think about the specific thing you want the money for , get a picture in your mind and actually visualize yourself using the money putting as much excitement and gratitude as you can into it.
Take the check with you today and put it in a place you can see it often, on at least 2 occasions today hold the check and visualize yourself using the money feeling grateful and excited, if you want you can do it more times.
when you receive the money you can repeat this and continue to increase what you are grateful for.
out you check in a place where you can see it daily .
hold your gratitude rock and say THANK YOU at the end of the day for the best thing that has happened today.

today's Challenge ( from the magic) day 16 , count your blessings and why .
Health
when there is some kind of sickness or condition in your body that you have negative feelings about such as worry or frustration or even fear, having these negative feelings do not restore health , it may do the opposite and reduce your health even more , to help increase your health you need to replace the negative feelings with good feelings and gratitude is the easiest way to do it.
Many people also have critical thoughts and feelings about dissatisfaction about their physical appearance , unfortunately that can reduce the flow of good health, when there are things that we do not like and offer a negative vibration about your physical appearance you are not being grateful for your body, like attracts like so complaints of any kind will only increase it.
it may be very difficult to access feelings of gratitude if you are sick or feeling ill but even the smallest bit of gratitude will help increase this magical flow in your body.
you have 3 steps in your challenge from The magic today
1 think about the great health you have received in your past, the life and energy , you were happy think about 3 times in your childhood, adolescence and adult life when you felt on top of the world say the magic words THANK YOU and feel sincere gratitude.
2 think about the health you're continuing to receive today feeling grateful for every organ, system and physical sense that is currently working well in your body, think about your arms, hands, legs, eyes, ears, liver , kidneys , your heart, brain, choose 5 functions of your body that are well and one by one mentally say THANK YOU.
3 your future health, choose one thing you want to improve about your body in today's practice , you are going to use gratitude in a very particular way , think about the ideal state of what you want to improve, giving thanks for the ideal state opens up vibrations to bring it to you.
spend one minute visualizing a scene of yourself with the ideal state of your body , as you see it through the mind the way you want it to be, be grateful for it as though you have received it, it is yours , your vision, your ideal weight, being flexible, that you have more endurance .less back pain,etc.
think about the best thing that has happened today as hold your gratitude rock and say THANK YOU!.

Today's Challenge ( from The Magic) day 15, are you continuing to count your blessings and why, ? this creates a habit that extends long beyond the challenge creating an overall healthy point of view
Holding onto anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else , you are the only one who gets burned
Gautama budda
For today's magical practice you are going to be looking for that hot coal that is burning in your life, and literally turn it into gold through gratitude, choose one difficult , problematic or broken relationship that you want to improve, it doesn't matter if that person is currently in your life.
it could be a parent , teacher, grandparent, sister, brother, childhood friend , neighbor , aunt, uncle, , whether it's a a current relationship or a past relationship, if you harbor bad feelings toward another person, practicing gratitude will help eliminate those ill feelings, bad feelings about another person will burn your life, you can use this with future reference as well.
take a moment to sit down when you have no distractions and make a list of 10 things you are grateful for about the person you have chosen, think back through the history of your relationship and list 10 great things about the person or the great things you received from the relationship, if the relationship was never good, then think hard about any good qualities because they are there, maybe it was something they did for someone else.
This practice is not about who is right or wrong, no matter how you feel someone has done to you, no matter what someone has said or didn't do, you can heal the relationship and you don't need the other person to do it.
grateful for the time you had together.
something you are grateful for that you learned from the other person
the hard work.
being taken care of.
they took interest in something you liked to show support.
they just stayed with you when you didn't feel like being around anyone.
they helped you with an issue.
they encouraged your dreams.
they gave you different points of view that helped you see a bigger picture
gave you patience .
opened a window to opportunity that you didn't have the courage to do yourself, even if i was small.
just shared time with you.
by the time you've finished you gratitude list of ten things you should feel better about the person, the ultimate point you want to reach is where you don't have any bad feelings about the person anymore because it's your life that is harmed by those feelings, every relationship is different and if need be, you may choose to repeat this practice over several days until you reach the point that you no longer have bad feelings toward the other person.
before you go to sleep tonight hold the magic rock in one hand and say THANK YOU for the best thing that happened to you today.

today's Challenge ( from The Magic) day 14
count you blessings and why you feel blessed (10)
see and experience the most magical day of your life, you can be grateful for your whole day before you have it! simply think through your plans for the day and say the magic words THANK YOU for each one going well, it only take a few minutes but the difference can make your day incredible , law of attraction, what you put out before you , you receive.
what are your plans for the day? is it travel, lunch with a friend, work meeting, work, school,cleaning, yoga, cardio workout, going shopping , turn today into a magical day by saying THANK YOU for each plan going well, before you live it!.
After you've finished using gratitude's magical power for every task ( even those that may seem small) and event in your day, end the practice by saying " and thank you for the great news coming to me today!"
before you turn in hold your gratitude rock and say THANK YOU for the best thing that has happened for you today.

Today's Challenge (from The Magic) day 13 make your list of 10 things you're grateful for and why.
If you have been following the magical practices day by day, you have built an amazing foundation by practicing gratitude for everything you have received and continue to receive in your life , but today is an exciting day , because you're going to begin to use gratitude's magical power for your dreams and desires!
The law of attraction say's that like attracts like, which means you you must form in your mind the likeness or an image of what you want, then, to attract your desire to you, you have to feel as though it's yours , so that how you feel is also like how you feel when you had what you wanted, the easiest way to do this is to be grateful for what you want before you receive it .
Gratitude is something you must have before you receive , not something you simply do after after something good has happened , make all of your wishes come true and change your entire life by filling it with riches in every area , you must be grateful before and after,
through the act of being sincerely grateful for receiving your desire beforehand , you immediately form an image in your mind that you have it, you feel as though you have it, you are fulfilling your part, if you continue to hold that image and feeling you will receive your desire. it is not your job to figure it out the how, a way will be made for you.
If you are not clear on what you really want in every area of your life now is the time to do it, after you have a detailed list pick to such as health, home , money, relationships or choose 10 desires in one area, be very clear and specific about what you want , so that you can see the changes magically happen in your life.
Sit down at a computer or pen and journal and create a separate list of your top 10 desires in the following way, as though you have already received them.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, for the high marks on my exam results which got me into the college I wanted!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the dream home which has everything we wanted right down to the last detail.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the unexpected money we received , which is the right amount for what we needed
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the ideas and creativity that keeps me active and fill of life
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, for the improvement in my relationship because it supports us and keeps our passion alive.
writing thank you 3 times in a row is a powerful thing to do because it prevents you from throwing the words away and increases your focus of gratitude , saying it three times is a magical formula .
the second step to make all of your wishes come true involves saturating your desires with even more gratitude, you can complete the second step at any time during the day, to saturate each of your desires begin with the first desire on your list and use your imagination mentally answer each question, as though you had received your desire.
1 what emotions did you feel when you received your desire?
2. who was the first person you told when you received your desire and how did you tell them?
3. what is the first great thing you did when you received your desire? onclude as much detail as possible.
finally reread each desire and really emphasize the magic words THANK YOU
hold your magic rock before you go to bed and say thank you for the best thing that has happened today.

Today's Challenge - ( from the Magic) day 12count your blessings and why
Each one of us has received help, support , guidance from other people at particular times in life when we needed it most, sometimes another person alters the course of our life through encouragement, help, guidance , or just being there, we tend to forget those pivotal people when we get our life back on course and get things straightened out, over the years we lose contact or just simply forget.
Today , think about people who have impacted your life, find a quiet place sometime today and think of 3 people who have made of difference, once you have your three people work with one person at a time and talk out loud to the person as if they were present telling them the reasons why you're so grateful, make sure you do this magical practice with all three people in the one session, because it will take your feeling of gratitude to a far deeper level.
when you have completed this practice , you will feel huge difference in the way you feel, the evidence of gratitude's power working is always that first and the foremost it makes you happy, the second evidence of gratitude's power is that you attract wonderful thing's.and if all that wasn't enough , the happiness you feel after practicing gratitude also attracts more wonderful things, which will make you even happier, that's the magic life and the magical power of gratitude.
just before you go to bed hold your gratitude rock and say thank you for the best thing that has happened to you today.

Today's Challenge ( from The Magic)day 11
each morning is filled with opportunities to give thanks, it doesn't slow you down or take any extra time because you can do it naturally as you go about everything you do, there is an added bonus to filling your morning with gratitude because your daily routines are the times when you can harm yourself the most by thinking negative thoughts without even realizing you're doing it, negative thoughts banish when you are looking for things to be grateful for.
When you wake up to the new day today, before you move, before you do a single thing, say the magic words THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the fact that you are alive, THANK YOU for the good nights sleep, you sheet, your pillow, extra cover, a warm night time wardrobe, fresh water from your tap, tooth brush, tooth paste , soap, cologne , those who dug trenches and laid pipe across the country.
Make today as good as it can be by practicing concentrated gratitude and putting magic into your morning routine saying THANK YOU for each thing you do, your morning coffee, milk, oj, cappuccino, tst, your chair, T.V. your brush, comb, mirror , your energy for the day, say THANK YOU each step you take as you rise in the morning.
Count your blessings today, make a list of 10 and the reasons why, before sleep hold your gratitude rock and say THANK YOU for the best thing that happened to you today.

Today's Challenge -( from The Magic) day 10,count your blessing and why, this can become a very useful habit.
Gratitude is a powerful energy , and whomever you direct gratitude's energy towards , that's where it goes, if you think of gratitude's energy looking like sparkling magic dust , then when you express gratitude to another person in return for something you have received from them, you are literally sprinkling the powerful positive energy in magic dust towards them
think about all of the people you come in contact with on a daily or weekly basis and the services provided, fast food, garbage pick up, gas pumps, grocery store, fast marts, water used, telephone service, mail, library , buses, electricity, cloud searches, hospitals, nursing homes, for some of you you may have family in a home and it is a blessing to know they are taken care of ( despite some bad publicity ).
you can't than each and every individual for the benefits you receive but you can sprinkle magic dust by saying a a gratitude felt THANK YOU, you can use it for all kinds of situations , for those who help others, .
Take today's gratitude's magic dust with you , you can sprinkle it on everyone with a THANK YOU, sprinkle at least 10 people today who perform different services, think to yourself why you are grateful for the service, keep it at 10 so your day will not become clouded by your dust, but youn will keep perspective over your gratitude.
Hold your gratitude rock and say THANK YOU for the best thing that happened today.

Today's Challenge -( from The Magic) day 9 start of course with your 10 things you are grateful for and why.
Today's practice turns one of the biggest reasons people complain about money into an act of gratitude, and it also doubles the power to change the circumstances of your money, You'll be replacing a complaint, which makes you poorer, with gratitude which brings you riches.
if you don't have enough money the last thing you would normally feel is grateful for your bills, but in fact that's exactly what you have to do to receive more money in your life, you must be grateful for everything you do with your money & begrudging your bills is not being grateful, be grateful for the service you have received from those who have billed you,it is such a simple thing to do but it will have a monumental effect on the money in your life.
to help you be grateful think about how much you have benefited from the services or goods on the bill, it could be your home, car, furniture, Dr expenses , gas, electricity , hot showers, telephone, internet .
say the Magic words each time you pay something, Thank you, today take any currently unpaid bills you have and use gratitude's magical power by writing across them "thank you for the money" and being grateful for having paid the bill.
next find 10 bills you have paid in the past and write across each one of them the magic words Thank you , paid.
feeling gratitude for the money you've paid out guarantees you will receive more , each time you pay for something feel the gratitude for the service, training, patience, benefits, gratitude is like the golden thread attached to you money so when you pay money out it always comes back to you sometimes tenfold sometimes hundredfold, the abundance you receive back depends not on how much you gave but the gratitude with which it was given.
Hold your gratitude rock in your hand tightly before bed and give thank for the best thing that happened for you today , say THANK YOU.

I am fortunate that I really like my job.
It isn't glamorous,I work in a ham processing plant.I handle raw meat all day and its about 38 degrees down where we work.But,I am so grateful to have a job.I am recently widowed and I would be in a real bad way if I didn't have this job.The insurance is a definite plus and I work with wonderful people that have helped me through this difficult time in my life.

Love is`nt something you wait for or something that comes to you from elsewhere,but rather that it`s a behavior,a way of being in the world.

Today's Challenge - ( from The Magic) day 8 give thanks for 10 things and why you are grateful for them.
give gratitude for your food, and each beverage, each fresh fruit and nourishing vegetable that you consume growers had to plant, nurture, water for months until they were ready for harvest, then there are pickers, packers, distributors, and transportation, everyone working in harmony to get it to you, your coffee , tea meat, dairy have a long process before it makes it's way to your shelf.
food is a gift, a gift of nature, where would we be without all that nature gives, soil , nutrients, water, which is a necessity for everything, this is given to us freely ( water that is ) ,
In ancient times people believed ( rightly so) that blessing their food an water before each meal purified it , blessings give pure energy to your food and water before consumed, so ultimately it will have a effect on your well being.
one way to experience that magic of gratitude is to savor at least one bite and drink ( more would be better) of each meal,savor the taste, how it feels, be grateful of the distance it traveled , the process from seed, to plant,to a nourishing meal on your plate, also take time to think about your plate , your glass, the containers that you food was housed in, the jobs they create , the effort to keep the quality in check.
for each item you consume today say THANK YOU before you consume it.
you can also try something Rhonda Bryne's does which helps her feel more gratitude for the food or beverage, when you say the magic words THANK YOU wave your fingers over your food or drink as though you're sprinkling magic dust on it, giving you more reason to be grateful for what you consume ( side note, food is energy so adding a more vibrant energy to the energy which is called units, will add to it's benefit to you) .
If anytime you forget to give thanks for your food or beverage as soon as you can close your eyes and visualize yourself a second or 2 before you ate or drank an say the magic words, if you forget many times repeat this process tomorrow .
hold your gratitude rock before you go to sleep and say thank you for the best thing that happened to you today.

Today's Challenge -( from The Magic) day 7 ,start with counting your blessings and why (10).
The magical way out of negativity, it could be relationships, health, job, negativity will arise over a lack of gratitude over a period of time , when we take things for granted we are not giving thanks for it, it is easy to think about how grateful you could have been when all was well, have a good job, better health, your paycheck, when those things get interrupted or change in an unfavorable manner , we then find that what we had was better than what we thought, negativity and complaining seem petty and by law of attraction it will bring you more to complain about, If you find yourself complaining about the weather, the traffic, your boss, family, lines, T.v a stranger that bumped into you or you feel showed disrespect to you in some way, you kids hog the computer, or start complaining themselves which drives you to a complaint contest( this is a big obstacle with work or outer circle of friends) .
Understanding that complaint and negativity means that you have unintentionally not been grateful enough, at first, as difficult as it may be ,look for things in a difficult situation to be grateful for , This is your challenge today. find a negative situation in your life that you want most to resolve, list ten things about that situation that you are grateful for at the end of your list write THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the perfect resolution.
also just for today see if you can get through it without saying anything negative, if you catch yourself stop immediately and say but I have to say that I am really grateful for_______
, just before you go to bed hold your gratitude rock and say thank you for the best thing that happened today.

today's Challenge - ( day 6 of The Magic) repeat steps 1-3
Today imagine that you have an invisible manager whose job it is to keep record of the thoughts and feelings you have about your job, imagine that your manager will follow you wherever you you go today poised with pen and notebook in hand , every time you find something about your job to be grateful for your manager will make not of it, your job is to find as many things as you can to be grateful for so that at the end of the day your manager has a long list, the longer the list the more magic your invisible manager can bring to your money, work, success, opportunities , enjoyment and fulfillment .
imagine your invisible manager makes not of each thing you're grateful for by duplicating your words e.g I am so grateful for________________, the more deeply your manager feels your gratitude the more eager he/she becomes, the excitement of gratitude can can be catchy and not like a yawn where one will start when it is seen, the kind of catchy that makes them want to give you more to be grateful for.

I had trouble with this one, thinking back in my childhood brings back many bad memories but keeping the focus on what I did have makes a difference, using my dollar as a book mark lol

Today's Challenge - ( day 5 from The Magic) repeat 1-3, feeling grateful for money, if there is lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried , envious, jealous, disappointed, doubtful from the lack of gratitude , instead of feeling ungrateful feel gratitude for the money you do have.
it's important to read this at the beginning of your day because you will continue this money practice throughout your day
1. take a few minutes to sit and think back into your childhood before you had any or much money , recall each thing that was paid for you , with all your heart say Thank you! for each moment you recall
food to eat
a place to live
education
school lunch
vacations
birthday gifts
clothes
movies
sports
doctor's appt
tooth brush
friendship bracelets
favorite T.V. shows
water
radio
when going back through your childhood it will amaze you at all that you have received, feel sincere gratitude for all that has come into your life, when you feel gratitude for money in the past, money will increase in your future.
2. take a dollar bill and place a sticker on the bill
THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THE MONEY I HAVE RECEIVED THROUGHOUT MY LIFE
several times throughout the day take it out read it, feel it, the more you feel it the sooner it will come into your existence .
After today put your dollar in a place where you will continue to see it everyday to remind you to be grateful for the abundance you have received , if you ever find yourself in a situation where you are about to complain about money ask yourself," are you willing to pay the price?
From this day forward , make a promise to yourself that whenever you receive any money, whether it is your paycheck, a refund, discount or any gift you will be grateful for it, put the magic of power to increase through gratitude for each thing that you receive , each moment gives you an opportunity ( many more I'm sure you can think of) to increase and multiply your money by being grateful for the money ( in many ways) that you have received .

Today's Challenge - (day 4 from The Magic) repeat steps 1-3
for step 4 is to have gratitude for your health, the deeper you feel the gratitude the greater the effects, think about why you are grateful
Think about your legs and your feet, all that they do for you, taking you from one place to another, balance, climbing stairs, playfully kicking a loved one, tip toes, kicking a ball, helping you up, think about all they do and say Thank you legs and feet for all that you do me.
Think about your arms and hands and all they assist you with on a daily basis, holding things, showing affection, helping others, allows to to eat, hold a phone, use a computer, helps when you have a scratch lol, shower, getting dressed , sign language for those who can not talk, drawing attention , saying hello, think about all yours do for you and say Thank you hand, arms and fingers, thank you for all you do.
Think about your amazing senses, all that you can smell, a flower, a cologne, dinner,fresh cut grass, the small after a rain, the scent of a summer breeze, the wonderful sounds that you get from hearing such as music, a laugh, someone saying kind words, hearing the sounds of the world around you.
Think about your sight and all that you see on a daily basis, the loving look from that someone, approval , the difference between so many colors, sights that make you feel good , sights that give you warning, the ability to read, to put ideas together whether on paper , building or instructing, being able to get from one place to another.
The best one Your brain that helps you interpret all that you see,, hear, taste , touch , small, giving you your own free will to change anything, the ability to change , the never ending learning you can achieve through the trillions of cells you possess , keeping your body functioning, your heart beats to pump your blood , your kidneys filter, your body takes nutrients from the foods you eat to help you live better, and disposes the waste, how awesome is that, so much your body does for you without you thinking about it.
thank your body for all that it does for you!

Today's Challenge -( day 3 of The Magic) repeat step 1- ten things you are grateful for and why ( as you continue this it may seem hard but simple things can mean so much, e.g not having as much pain, enjoying a clear blue shy) also do step 2 and think of one thing you you are grateful for today before you go to bed holding your gratitude rock( after each of these be sure to repeat THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
day 3 gratitude is so powerful and can increase the positivity in your current relationships and future ones as well so today's practice is being grateful for people just as they are, choose 3 of your closest relationships , your wife, son, boyfriend, girlfriend, sister, spark friend, aunt uncle, choose any 3 that are important to you, you need a photograph of each , once you have selected your three you are ready to set magic into motion! sit down and think of the things you are most grateful for about that person, best qualities, their patience , talents , strengths, sense of humor , wisdom, ability to make you laugh, help you with a problem, or maybe what you do when your together, after you have spent time thinking about what you're grateful for put the photo in front of you and choose 5 things, start each sentence with thank you______ put their name and what you are grateful for. practice this about 3 times in your day, you can extent this out to others as well creating more magic in your relationships.

I am truly blessed to have-_____________ because__________________
I am so happy and grateful for___________________ because_________________________
I am truly grateful for______________________________because_________________________
with all of my heart I thank you for_____________ because_______________________
after you have finished your list go back and reread it and after each say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

your health
your able body
your job
money you do have
any relationships
your passions
things that you love
your life
nature
material things,
your creative mind

Today's Challenge - (please apply this everyday) Everyday whether we think about it or not , we give our brain commands, most of the time it is the same ole, keeping our daily lives the same, BORING right! well lets give ourselves some new commands!!!! lets spice things up, lets show ourselves what we are really made of!!!.
Our brains will do whatever we ask, (ask,believe,receive)so lets ask it new questions, How can I find more pleasure in my life?, What would be a eating program that I can do and enjoy?, What areas can I apply The Secret to ?, How can I make this moment better?, What can I do to break out of my comfort zone?, I focus on the same thing, areas of my body & foods that I eat so what can I focus on that will cause an effective difference ?, How can i change my workouts to create impact ( instead of time focus on getting into your heart rate target zone) How can I look at today differently ?.
Those a are a few suggestions to get you started, take this opportunity to really change how you think and open up yourself to a something that may amaze you, YOU!.

Today's Challenge - do you need a jump start ? take just one area and focus all of your attention on it and brainstorm ways to jump start it into success !!!, do you need a jump start with your workouts? was there anything in the past that got you going? a time in your life when you felt good and would strut ? workouts that made you feel good and gave you energy? can you create a doable plan to stick with even if it's just for today ( we stick with things that are rewarding) . What about quality time for you, being constructive doing something that motivates you ! painting, redecorating, writing, getting everything organized everything in it's place, spending a few hours in your down time checking out the sites, maybe visiting someone that you seldom see, going to a movie that sparks your interest. Check out topics that have peaked some interest in the past, get into detail and see if you can re spark your interest or maybe a completely new interest or hobbies.
Take a jump start to your life in the next few days and see what passion you could ignite !! spark a new phase of your life, one that will excite you! get out of your "zone" making this an awesome start to a wonderful new phase in your life!!

When I am done checking "my recent post" I plan on heading back to the main page. I saw that one of the featured articles today is something like -25 ways to restart healthy habits. My speech this week in class was a persuasive speech on making a healthy lifestyle change.

I'm talking....but not doing. That needs to change.

Have a great weekend.

Today's Challenge - each and every day we have the opportunity to make it better, from small to big things so make it a habit to just simply make everyday better somehow , it could be just thinking really upbeat and positive in your way to work or while running an errand , maybe make any car trip a time to think and focus well, maybe it is just adding 10 push-ups during a show, saying Hi to a stranger, helping someone who may need it, taking a few extra minutes to read your labels, getting into what the ingredients mean, maybe learn what happens when you work a particular muscle, just simply do something each day to improve your well being, whether it be physical or mental, just a few extra seconds , minutes or whatever you choose each and every day to make it in some way better.

Today's Challenge - we make choices all day about what to think of people, circumstances, rumors, clothes, cars, dishes, shows, games, shoes, we make choices almost instantly on most things as to whether or not we like them and usually stick with it , Today make the choice to think good about any situation, circumstance or person that you are in contact with okay, even if it is an unfavorable circumstance you can see it as a lesson , if someone is having and unpleasant day and want to take it out on those around them realize that this is an opportunity for your growth, instead of jumping on the cranky horse with them saddle up on Mr sunshine beside them and maybe say " having a bad day?" , maybe you have just eaten one to many slices of pizza instead of just giving in and making your day bad just start over!.
Whatever you do today make a choice to make it a good part of your day!

This is very relevant to me because I have not been sleeping for days on end, up all night on SP, Fb and Twitter, and if I revisit the past I see that's how I get myself in trouble and do and say stupid and uncool things and end up making myself sick. I will go to bed soon, but I have some tasks to take care of outside the home today that are very important so I feel I can't just lie down for a bit, plus I feel there's so much to get done.

Today's Challenge - make a choice to relive each moment that you did not make a good decision, relive it and decide what you should have done instead, what would you have done differently? notice the feeling you get with making better choices ! would you have not let that person get to you ? at what point should you have walked away ? what about that long day and counting calories or eating something different from everyone seemed to much like a hassle, how do you think it would have went if you had stuck with it and also been a ( sometimes silent) encouragement to others and yourself.
Our subconscious mind can not distinguish between fantasy and reality when emotion is involved so reliving each choice , even though you may not have made the best choice the first time, will reinforce better decisions in your future, simple enough right ? just relive each OOPS moment the way you feel you should have , add intensity , feeling and compassion and you are closer to your better living !.

( only those who risk going to far know how far they can go)

self control is knowing you can and deciding you wont

the only thing you can't do ....is what you dont think you can do!!!!!.

Good one Harper! I worked my butt off with only 2 hours sleep. I'm creating myself and had some recognition on Twitter today. emoticon

Today's Challenge - we talk to ourselves constantly so today and as many days as you wish, talk it up real good, congratulate yourself as a cheering section on every good choice you make, if you choose to have fruit or salad instead of fries, hear your own parade ! if you decide to do 10 push-ups during a commercial , throw your hands in the air and say WELL DONE!!!!, if you track your food , get up and do a celebration cha-cha , if you decide to get things done that you may out off, sing a little diddy like I DID IT I DID IT!!!!!, be celebratory about you today , add a skip to your step every so often, smile and say IT"S GOOD TO BE ME!!!.

I am not cheating myself out of the exercise I could be doing and the 3 healthy meals I could be eating. (At least I always drink my water!). I am redefining myself as a force to be reckoned with, physically and mentally. Thanks for the challenge. Looking forward to the next, Emmy :))

I am redefining myself as a person who prefers water over soda.

Have a great week,

Matt

Today's Challenge - Take time and decide what it is that you really do want in your life, what you will stand for , what you will no longer allow, Thinking I want to be healthy is nice but why do you want to be healthy, what will you gain, what exactly will you do to get there?, Do you want respect from others ? what will get you to the position that will earn respect, will you be much kinder, more helping, considerate? Do you want to change what your are doing now? ( with anything) what will you do instead, how will you do it? .
Over the years I am sure we have learned that what we focus on is what persists so in changing what we want to be, changing our habits successfully must come from keeping our focus on what it is we want, our desire to get there, our drive from thinking about it, deleting any thought of what we do not want, if you do not want to be in a size 16-18---- 44-46 then do not focus on the size, focus on all the effects of changing it, what will you do to make a difference? what awesome new dishes will become part of your life to replace the old ones that got you to this point? what workout routine will you have to help you build endurance and shape you to become this wonderful image in your mind? Want to be a more outgoing person ( this is a personal one for me ) what will you do to break through fear you may have when talking with others? how will you be consistent in making a change ? ,
We have many things that we may want to change and seeing them through and come to fruition is one of the many blessings that we can do form ourselves !!
