Secrets of Success

Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Mood



We can't control most of the things that happen to us. We can't control other people. But we can control ourselves. If you find yourself thinking a certain way that makes you feel unhealthy or negative, then take a step back and change your thought.

More Information:

It doesn't have to be an overly positive thought or an unbelievably optimistic thought - just one that makes you feel better. In a world where we look for control over events, others, food, we forget that we control ourselves. And that is a beautiful thing.

  • what a wonderful idea! - by SWEETMOMMY41
  • My family is not overweight only I am so I have to work 2x as hard on not going overboard with the McDonalds or junk food. - by BABY_GIRL69
  • My husband is now home because of a disability and has become the keeper of the kitchen. He loves to fry everything so it was real easy to blame him, but I have learned about those three fingers pointing back at myself. I started with just portion control no more blame an lo and behold I started to lose weight. And now hubby is looking at how good something for you snd he has even yried his hand at baking. so thanks to taking the step back. - by 7356WILMA
