The Differences Between Those That Succeed and Those That Fail

Posted by on Nov 5, 2017 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on The Differences Between Those That Succeed and Those That Fail

Success is a fascinating thing. There are good people with every possible advantage that struggle with success and life in general. It’s also easy to find people with no education, a poor attitude, and a lack of morality that seem to thrive. Both groups of people want to get ahead, but only one is successful. Why is that? Successful people, regardless of their advantages or disadvantages, have one thing in common: they consistently work at their goals. It’s necessary to do everything you can to be successful and take that attitude into the marketplace. You must be willing to compete, whether it be for a job or to see your business become successful. Add these behaviors to your life and create more success: Make use of what you have. This includes your capabilities, time, and other resources. There’s no reason to wait until you learn something new, save a certain amount of money, or make the right contacts. You can do those things on the side, but the bulk of your time should be spent on doing everything you can with what you currently possess. Read books that enable you to spend your time more productively. By learning more, you can correct your mistakes and use your time more wisely. The right book can teach you more discipline or how to better interact with others. Books give you access to the very best minds in the world, past and present. Every book you read can improve you in some way and enhance the way you spend your time. Commit to being your best. Most of us are either too lazy or too afraid to bring our best to each day. Discipline and courage are required if you want to consistently be successful at a high level. Make plans. Dreams are nice, but they’re just a starting point. You must convert your dreams into concrete plans, and then put everything you have into executing those plans. Building a life without a good plan is like trying to build a home without a good plan. Eventually you run into trouble and must use make-shift solutions just to keep it from falling apart. Plan your day, but not all of it. Ensure that you can hit the ground running, but leave yourself enough wiggle room to take advantage of any opportunities that present themselves along the way. The same goes for your week, month, and year. Have a good, solid outline for your time for at least the next year. View problems as challenges to be solved. Becoming successful requires dealing with a nearly endless stream of obstacles. View these obstacles as challenges that make you stronger, smarter, and more capable to handle the next challenge. The bigger the challenge you’re able to solve, the more successful you will become. Avoid distractions. Spend your time on the most important activities. If learning to play piano is a priority for you, spending time perfecting your photography skills, playing the guitar, and learning to oil paint ensures that you’ll never become the best pianist you can be. It’s easy to look around and see that the universe isn’t judging “good” people and “bad” people when it comes to success. You know plenty of awful people that are doing well, and plenty of wonderful people...

New Fitness Trends That Will Surprise You

Posted by on Oct 29, 2017 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on New Fitness Trends That Will Surprise You

  If you’re trying to keep up with the latest fitness trends, then you may feel overwhelmed. It’s not easy to track all of the hottest fads in the exercise industry, but the following trends are worth following. The latest fitness trends may even give you a whole new way to look at exercise: Aerial exercises. One of the hottest trends in the industry is aerial exercises. They’re also called trapeze exercises and require that you go to a gym. If you’ve ever been to a performance of flying acrobats, you may be surprised to learn that you can study the same skills at a local gym and take classes. Aerial and trapeze classes will teach you the basics or advanced skills. The gyms are equipped with padded floors and have plenty of trainers, so you won’t get hurt. You’ll use bars, ropes, and scarves to fly through the air. This is a fun workout that actually burns a lot of calories and makes you use all of your muscles.  High altitude exercises. Being at a high altitude creates a unique exercise experience for your entire body. You may not be aware of the latest trend to use high altitudes to work out. If you don’t live in a high-altitude area such as Denver, then you’ll have to search for a specialty gym that offers this type of exercise. Specialty gyms that have high altitude workouts provide equipment and other items to change the oxygen levels. This gives your body the chance to exercise with less oxygen, so you build endurance. Parkour is a unique workout that is often compared to playing on the playground or a kid’s gym. Parkour is focused on having fun while you exercise. You get to run, jump, swing, and walk through different obstacles. You can jump over blocks or play on the monkey bars. This exercise trend reminds people of their younger days and makes them feel like kids again. Hot Pilates. This new trend refers to doing Pilates in a heated studio. Pilates is already an intense workout that uses special equipment to tone and move your muscles. However, the addition of heat makes it even more difficult. The heat is supposed to loosen your muscles. Hot Pilates is designed to burn calories while you tone your entire body. The goal is to look lean and lose fat. Custom online training. The growth of the internet has touched the fitness industry, and one of the hottest trends is custom online training. This type of training gives you access to one or more fitness experts who work with you on an individual level. They design and tweak your entire workout routine based on what you want to accomplish and what your body needs. You can sign up for daily or weekly sessions. The personal approach has been used in gyms before. Now, it’s moved online, so you don’t have to drive or walk to another location to get help. Online training gives you more control and lets you work out from your home. It also gives you more choices since you get to pick a trainer from a larger pool instead of the ones that are hired by your local gym. The fitness industry is constantly coming up with new ideas to make...

How to Achieve Huge Goals

Posted by on Oct 24, 2017 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on How to Achieve Huge Goals

Achieving a huge goal is similar to achieving smaller goals. However, you must be much more diligent and aware of any negative thoughts associated with your goal. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and lose all your momentum. Huge goals take more time and persistence. If you’re up for the challenge, there is no reason you can’t achieve a huge goal. Set a big goal and change your life quickly: Choose the right goal. A goal can be too big. If your goal exceeds your belief that you can be successful, you’re finished before you even get started. The biggest goal you can reasonably achieve is a goal that makes you think you can be successful if everything goes perfectly and you work hard. Anything beyond that may create too much internal resistance. Get clear on what success means. Some goals, like weight loss and income goals, are easy to measure. Other goals can be more challenging. Be sure you know how you’ll measure your success. Otherwise, you might be successful and not even know it. Create a plan. Develop a general plan that will ensure success. It can helpful to start at the end and work your way backwards. Work back until you have a step that you can do today. Create a detailed plan. Now that you have a general plan, create a detailed plan that will get you from one step to the next. Talk to experts and get the information you need to make an intelligent plan. Your local library is full of experts that provide free advice. Develop habits related to your action plan. Seek to develop habits that help you to reach your goals. For example, you might take a daily walk before breakfast if you’re trying to lose weight. Or your habit might be to skip breakfast! Review your results regularly. You can’t know how well or poorly you’re doing if you never check. Regularly review your progress and make the necessary adjustments along the way. This is an important step that many people skip. Check your attitude daily. Are you feeling doubtful, intimidated, or fearful? Are you procrastinating? It’s critically important to deal with negative feelings immediately. The amount of willpower anyone possesses is limited. You can’t push your way through negative emotions indefinitely. Find a mentor. Odds are, someone else has already accomplished your very goal. It only makes sense to take advantage of someone else’s knowledge and experience. Most people are happy to help. It never hurts to ask. If necessary, consider hiring a mentor/coach. It might be some of the best money you’ve ever spent. Visualize success. Spend a few minutes each night visualizing success. Imagine how you’ll feel when your goal is achieved. Where will you be? How will you feel? How will your life change? Make the experience as positive as you possibly can. If you rated the desirability of achieving your goal on a 1-10 scale, it had better be a 10! Big goals require an appropriate goal, a good plan, a mentor, and stamina. To achieve a big goal, you must be prepared to do things you’ve never done before. Are you willing to be more than you’ve demonstrated to this point? Set a big goal and get excited at the prospect of achieving success....

Making a Living vs. Designing a Life

Posted by on Oct 16, 2017 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Making a Living vs. Designing a Life

Are you making a living or living a life that you designed? What’s the difference? Making a living is about survival. It’s making enough money to live an average life. It’s having a marriage that you can tolerate. It’s muddling by. Designing a life is about creation and choice. You consciously choose a life that’s tailored to your preferences. It might involve living in a mansion or living in a hut on a mountaintop. You might be married to your ideal partner or choose to live alone. Those that are merely “making a living” are living the life that society considers to be average or normal. Those that design a life are choosing for themselves how they want to live and then making it happen. Making a living is easy, but not very enjoyable. Designing a life is much more work, but much more satisfying. The choice is yours. Design the life you were meant to live: Put all reservations aside and make some choices. What is your dream life? Don’t be practical. Think about your ideal life in detail and write it down. Consider these ideas: Where would you live? Who else would be there? What would your social circle look like? Describe your home. How would you spend your day and evening? Write a mission statement for your life. Companies have a mission statement. You should, too. What will your life be about? Accumulating wealth, relationships, adventure, contribution? Decide the purpose of your life. Find a hero. Who is living the type of life that appeals to you? Maybe it’s someone from history. If it’s a current figure, follow them on social media, read their biography, and read their other books. Learn everything you can about them. Determine the type of person you need to become. Do you need to become a person that makes health, diet, and exercise a priority? Do you need to develop a high level of discipline? Did you need to become more sociable? More organized? Take more risks? Think about the type of person that would have your dream life. You may need to make some adjustments. Decide what you’re willing to do. Are you willing to move? Write for an hour each night? Lose 50 pounds? Learn to speak Mandarin? Consider everything your dream life will require for you to achieve and maintain it. What are you prepared to do? Decide what you’re willing to stop doing. Are you willing to give up drinking? Watching TV? Spending mindless time in bars with your friends? Procrastinating? Being afraid? Avoiding tough conversations? There will be things you must stop doing if you want to change your life. Create a plan to get there. Without a plan, you only have a dream. A plan turns it into an objective. Create a viable plan and get started. Don’t give up. If your plan is sound, all you need to do is hang in there until your dream becomes your reality. Be persistent and consistent. Are you living a life that you chose? Or does your life look like everyone else’s? Be courageous and choose the life you want to lead. It’s easy to follow the herd and live like everyone else. You don’t share the same taste in food, clothing, or TV shows as anyone...

Develop Daily Discipline and Reach Your Goals

Posted by on Oct 8, 2017 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Develop Daily Discipline and Reach Your Goals

The ability to control yourself might be the most important skill you can possess. You probably already know how to get in great shape, eat properly, find a better-paying job, and succeed in a lot of other ways. The problem is, you’re not doing those things. What you lack is enough discipline. Discipline allows you to use what you know. Without it, you’re just a dusty library of information. Develop the discipline necessary to excel in life with these strategies: Rest is important. Fatigue is a killer of discipline. Have you ever noticed that your discipline is weakest at night? That’s when you’re more likely to waste time. You’re more likely to eat poorly. You’re more likely to send an ill-advised text message to your ex. If you have a task to complete that requires discipline, schedule it when your energy is at its peak. Get enough sleep each night to be at your best. Plan naps if the afternoon if possible. Exercise isn’t just good for you, it’s good for the development of discipline. Exercising regularly is challenging both physically and mentally. It’s not easy to get yourself to exercise every day. The slight physical discomfort also requires discipline to endure. You also have the benefit of enhancing your health at the same time. Get organized. Getting and staying organized is another gentle way to build your discipline. Start with just one part of your home. Declutter and clean. Then move on to another part of the house. Clutter also saps your discipline and willpower. If you’re naturally messy, getting organized might be more challenging than you think. Take small steps and avoid losing ground. It doesn’t do much good if you clean a room, and it returns to a messy state in a few days. Stay on top of it! Learn persistence. It’s questionable if you can have discipline without persistence. Fortunately, there are countless opportunities to practice each day. Become a master at completing tasks. Fold all the laundry instead of leaving part of it for later. Wash all the dishes instead of leaving that gross, greasy dish until tomorrow. Whenever you start to feel a little bored, tired, hungry, or uncomfortable, continue with your current task for at least a few more minutes. You’ve learned how to quit easily. Teach yourself how to persist after you want to stop. Even three minutes is an improvement and a good starting point. Meditate daily. From a distance, meditation looks easy. After all, how hard can it be to just sit there and focus on your breathing, right? Try it once and see how hard it can be. Meditation teaches focus and the ability to persevere when you’re emotionally and physically uncomfortable. It’s hard not to think, “How much longer?” when you’re in the middle of a meditation session. Start with just a few minutes and add a few more minutes each week. When you can sit for an hour straight, you can do anything. Learn to forgive easily. Negative emotions consume a lot of energy and make self-discipline much more challenging. When you’re consumed with negative thoughts, it’s hard to do anything productive. Let go of the negative energy inside of you and you’ll have more self-control. Self-control is the key to making progress. You already know...

They can also help you create a unique taste to your desserts that will amaze your family. Change your butter or oil.

You simply have to ensure it’s soft and pureed. Switch to whole flour instead of white flour. By switching the type of flour you use, you can get a healthier dessert. Many recipes allow you to use whole flour instead of white flour. Whole flour adds fiber that is necessary for a strong digestive system. Sadly, many desserts don’t have much fiber. Use beets to reduce sugar. It’s hard to make a sweet dessert without sugar, but beets can help you cut down the total amount you need. You can use raw, grated beets instead of some of the sugar in a recipe. Make smaller portions. You don’t need to make giant chocolate chip cookies that cover the whole pan. Instead, focus on smaller portions that are healthier and still fun to eat. Experts recommend making your cookies and other dessert servings smaller. You also want to limit how many you eat in one sitting. Use more bananas. Bananas can be turned into ice cream, pudding, and many other healthy desserts. You can use a food processor to turn plain bananas into a creamy ice cream with no extra sugar or other ingredients. Freeze them after you’re done, so they can be transformed. Bananas are high in potassium and have other vitamins and minerals. Use more dates. Dates are fruits that have a sticky texture. Dates are a fun option for making healthier desserts. They can hold together cookies, bars, tarts, and other baked goods. They also have high levels of fiber and other nutrients. They’re naturally sweet, so you don’t need to add much sugar to a date recipe. Experiment with healthier desserts. You don’t have to completely cut out dessert from your life.
