Great answers ladies!

Here's another one...

QUOTE -
"If at first you don't succeed, you're running about average."

Persevering through failure - Q - How do you persevere through your failures?

Of course try, try again, but when you don't succeed at something it's best not to beat yourself up or hold yourself to an unrealistic standard of achievement. Feeling as if you're a failure, simply for not reaching a goal, is not who you truly are. Do you think you're the only one who fails? Of course not! Most problems involve steps to their solution, and solving each step along the way IS an accomplishment. If you become discouraged during your weight loss journey or find your financial aspirations out of reach, keep trying! Some of life's most rewarding experiences make you sweat and persevere through hard times, only to emerge on the other side victorious and wiser for having worked so hard.

Good Question!

I like to give advice, lol, even when its unasked for. Sometimes it comes back to bite me in the butt, but I'd rather say what I think it necessary rather than have someone say 'why didn't you tell me' later on...

As for how I lend a helping hand, I like to help wherever needed whenever I can. I try to be accessible to my friends so they know they can call on me when they need me.

I also really like doing random acts of kindness! It is so fun and really helps brighten not only other peoples days but my own as well! I strive to do something kind each and every day. I even started a blog about it! yourpartnersinkind.blogspot.c

I live a very boring life now, when I was younger I used to do a lot of volunteering, but as I got older I bcame more involved with my jobs n my children's lives. So when I'm working I rarely have any social interactions except 4 fri, sat & sun when I get 2gether w/ a couple of my friends. 1 of my friends is a g-ma raising 3 of her g-children on her soc sec check needless 2 say it's never enuf, so we make sure 2 get her groceries n occasionally help w/ her bills. I can't help but admire her picking up da slack w/out 1 complaint ever! emoticon She 1st place in our hearts!

Dragons Rule!

This is GREAT stuff... emoticon

Plant seeds of expectation in your mind; cultivate thoughts that anticipate achievement. Believe in yourself as being capable of overcoming all obstacles and weaknesses.

I'm starting this thread... and will sticky it. If anyone has a Question they want to ask for the week. To get the team's minds a workin. Please feel free to post your questions in this thread. As you all know, I have always found most of the questions from either the Healthy Reflections found in the daily emails or... I come up with the question and find a quote to go with. But... if you don't have a quote to go with your question, that's totally fine. Don't worry about the quote. :)



I will start.... This question will be for all of next week... if someone has a question at the end of next week, feel free to post your question(s).

QUESTION -
HOW OFTEN DO YOU LEND A HELPING HAND TO SOMEONE IN NEED? IN WHAT WAYS DO YOU DO THIS? ELABORATE....

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Lending a helping hand

It is easy to get down on someone when you aren't in their shoes. Often we throw in our two cents when it is not only unwanted, but also unhelpful and useless. Resist the temptation to waste your breath on pointless criticism at someone else's expense. Don't give advice to people unless it is asked for, lest you belittle them and come off looking like a know-it-all. Instead, examine ways you could help that person. Rather than continuously feeling irked by a coworker's mistakes, could you lend a hand or explain a task to her in a respectful way? You never know when the shoe will be on the other proverbial foot. Help others and one day it might come back to you.
