Change Your Words for Success!

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Words are powerful and they can make the difference between failure and success. Words, just like goals, determine our actions.

When we eliminate negative words and substitute them with positive thoughts and words, then we gain hope and courage. We give ourselves encouragement to move toward the successes we deserve.

Below are words you shouldn’t use and a positive substitute word or phrase for each:Words for success, self improvement, goal setting

Quit ……………..I can do it
Cannot ………..I can
Unable …………I am willing and able
Impossible ….If it’s realistic, it’s possible.
But …………….And (usually works)
If ………………..When
Should ……….Will
Won’t …………Will
Maybe ……….For sure
Someday ……Today
Never …………Now
Try ……………..I’ll do it

For just one week, think before you commit to saying a negative word or statement. When you do this, it will improve your happiness, make you more enthusiastic and move you in the direction of your goals.

Promise Yourself – The Optimist Creed

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

Wonderful creed to live by and that is why I am sharing this.

Promise yourself to be strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but great deeds.

To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

Christian D. Larson 1912 – The Optimist Creed

Choose to be an optimist; to be happy and spread joy!

Positive Life Changes

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

How do you manage change in your life? Changes are essential because they open new doors to opportunity and they create room for adjustments. Accept change because without it, your life may become lackluster and cheerless.

Everyone experiences change, whether it is a change in their job, relationship or health. It may even be a change you initiated that may suddenly seem daunting.

Practice being good at change and always focus on the positive. Sometimes it may take some time to realize that a specific change of circumstance was actually a gift in disguise. The gift you receive may not even be related, in any way, to the change you experienced. For example, you may lose your job but find yourself in a rewarding new relationship would never have taken shape if you were still employed.

Change may lead you to new people, help you develop a stronger belief in yourself, provide you with new opportunities, or inspire you to live a healthier life.

It’s important to be on the lookout for the good that can transpire from unexpected changes.

Do you have low days; days where you feel down? It’s fine to have those days once in awhile. Sometimes you just need a day to refresh.

These are the days when you need to be thankful for who you are, reflect on your past achievements and review where you are going. Ponder the successes you are working toward and think about the exhilaration you will feel when you reach those successes.

Take the down day to examine your life, find your soul, meditate, or read. Indulge in something that puts you back on track the next day.

After your day off, begin your next day with your power start and feel the rejuvenation! Rekindle your momentum and take some action steps toward your goals. Keep putting one foot in front of the other. Do not quit!

Example of a Powerful Affirmation

Monday, July 5th, 2010

Affirmations and belief in ourselves creates happiness within. Affirmations should be said with strength and conviction; your affirmations should come from your heart. The true power of affirmations cannot be discounted.

I want to share a post called The Power of Positive Thinking written by Lorelei, a friend of mine who has a wonderful blog for parents. Within the post she shares a You Tube video called Jessica’s Daily Affirmation and you don’t want to miss it. If adults learn by example, this is one example we should learn from.

You Choose Your Reaction; The 90/10 Rule

Friday, June 18th, 2010

Discovering the 90/10 Principle will change how you react to situations and it will positively change your life. This principle is written by Stephen Covey and we want to share it with you.

What is this principle?

10% of life is made up of what happens to you. 90% of life is decided by how you react. What does this mean?

We really have no control over 10% of what happens to us. We cannot stop the car from breaking down. The plane will be late arriving, which throws our whole schedule off. A driver may cut us off in traffic. We have no control over this 10%. The other 90% is different. You determine the other 90%.

How? By your reaction. You cannot control a red light. However, you can control your reaction; you can control how you react.

Let us use an example: You are eating breakfast with your family. Your daughter knocks over a cup of coffee onto your business shirt. You have no control over what just happened. What happens next will be determined by how you react. You curse. You harshly scold your daughter for knocking the cup over.

She breaks down in tears. After scolding her, you turn to your spouse and criticize her for placing the cup too close to the edge of the table. A short verbal battle follows. You storm upstairs and change your shirt. Back downstairs, you find your daughter has been too busy crying to finish breakfast and get ready for school. She misses the bus. Your spouse must leave immediately for work.

You rush to the car and drive your daughter to school. Because you are late, you drive 40 miles an hour in a 30 mph speed limit zone. After a 15-minute delay and throwing away $60 on a traffic fine, you arrive at school. Your daughter runs into the building without saying goodbye.

After arriving at the office 20 minutes late, you find you forgot your briefcase. Your day has started terribly. As it continues, it seems to get worse and worse. You look forward to coming home. When you arrive home, you find a small wedge in your relationship with your spouse and daughter.
Why? Because of how you reacted in the morning. Why did you have a bad day?

    A. Did the coffee cause it?
    B. Did your daughter cause it?
    C. Did the policeman cause it?
    D. Did you cause it?
    The answer is “D”.

You had no control over what happened with the coffee. How you reacted in those 5 seconds is what caused your bad day. Here is what could have and should have happened.

Coffee splashes over you. Your daughter is about to cry. You gently say, “Its ok honey, you just need to be more careful next time.” Grabbing a towel, you rush upstairs. After grabbing a new shirt and your briefcase, you come back down in time to look through the window and see your child getting on the bus. She turns and waves. You arrive 5 minutes early to work and cheerfully greet the staff.

Notice the difference? Two different scenarios. Both started the same. Both ended differently.

Why? Because of how you REACTED. You really do not have any control over 10% of what happens. The other 90% is determined by your reaction.

      90/10 Principle by Steven Covey

Understanding and applying the 90/10 principle WILL change your life!

Turning Your Limiting Beliefs Into Empowering Beliefs

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

It is so important that you turn your limiting beliefs into empowering beliefs because in order to reach goals, you must believe in yourself.

I know I can do anything!

I know I can do anything!


If you have even the slightest inkling that you may not reach your goal, that notion will hold you back. You must empower yourself by taking charge of your beliefs so you can be at your greatest.

 

Limiting beliefs are caused by a lack of confidence and/or fear.

Why do we experience fear or a have lack of confidence? It just takes shape over the years from our environment, our teachers, parents, or a past event. The bottom line is that any limiting belief you have, was accepted by you and you alone.

Examples of limiting belief versus empowering beliefs:

I don’t have the time.    VS     I have plenty of time to do the things that are truly important.
I am depressed.             VS     I have total control over how I feel every day. I choose to be happy.
I’m not smart enough.    VS     I am intelligent and I can learn anything that I desire
Its too late to start.       VS     I am starting today or Its never too late to start.

Write down any limiting beliefs you have and then write an empowering belief next to that.
Rewrite only your empowering beliefs on a clean piece of paper.
Every morning when you awaken, read your new beliefs.

If its fear that is causing your limiting beliefs, you need to take steps to overcome whatever is causing that fear. Get out of your comfort zone. Don’t let fear hold you back. Believe that you can, and you can, do anything. You are capable.

Write down any fears that you need to overcome in order to reach your goals.
Write down the steps you must take to overcome that fear.
Commit to get out of your comfort zone and start taking empowering steps.

Move past any self defeating beliefs and stop using words and phrases like “I can’t” and “impossible.” From today forward, catch yourself every time you say “I can’t” or have any negative notions. Commit to saying only positive, uplifting phrases about yourself.

Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone. – Robert Allen
