Meet your health goals with systematic consistency

posted in: focus, goals, persistence, strength | 0

If you want to meet your health goals, you need to stay focused. This can be difficult if you take a haphazard approach to losing weight, getting stronger or staying fit. I’ve found that the best way to be consistent is to have a system that helps me stay on track.
I suggest using a system that runs in 30-day cycles, which fits perfectly with the way you schedule your life. You’ll know when each cycle begins and ends.
You also want to know what to do each day. The system should be simple and easy to follow.

“My first 30-Day System changed everything,” she said. “The ease of the system, the energy, the improved sleep, the patience as a mom, and the increased productivity at work had me committed to using these products and systems for life.”
It helps if the system you use has meal replacement options and products that nourish your body. You want your body to have the nourishment it needs so you can become healthy and stay healthy.
You also want your system to have high-quality protein that satisfies cravings and helps you stay full longer.
A system that runs for 30 days at a time also helps you stay consistency.
One of the most important keys to success with any health-driven goal is to remain consistent. You can set yourself up for a continuous positive cycle of results, season after season, goal after goal. Work hard, stay dedicated, and keep your drive going. It can pay off in big ways.

“I woke up in the mornings with energy,” he said. “I was finally sleeping through the night, and the pounds started falling off.”
Of course, weight loss, muscle gain, lifestyle, and other results depicted here reflect exceptional individual experiences and should not be construed as typical or average. Results vary with individual effort, body composition, eating patterns, time, exercise, and other factors, such as genetic and physiological makeup.
None of these statements have been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
In short, your results are largely up to you. You’ll need to follow any system that you use and stay consistent.
I used a 30-day system to released more than 40 pounds, which I’ve kept off for more than three years. I’m almost 55 years and feel better than I’ve felt since I was in my 20s.
Think about your health goals, find the system that fits your plans and stay consistent.

Network marketing success: Three ways to strengthen your business

The search for network marketing success can be a long, confusing journey. It seems like you can find tips, strategies, advice and recommendations all over the Internet.

Often lost in all the confusion is one of the most basic rules of network marketing — if you want to improve your business, improve yourself. Personal development can, of course, take many forms, but I’ve found that one of the most important keys for me is to focus on my strengths.

In other words, if I concentrate on doing what I do well, my chances for success in network marketing increase. The first step is to find your strengths.

Here are three quick, easy questions you can ask yourself that will help you discover your strengths.

• What brings you joy?

This may sound easy, but many people struggle when they give this question serious thought. We’re often programmed as young children to forget about those things that make you happy. Misguided parents often think this spares their children from future heartbreak.

• What frustrates you in other people?

Think of those times when someone you know has had a difficult time performing a task that you consider easy. There’s a good chance that the task is in an area of one of your strengths.

• What do other people praise your for that you think is no big deal?

Remember when you did something that someone else couldn’t stop talking about, but you just shrugged off because it was easy for you. That’s because it involved some aspect of a strength for you.

Early in life we develop skills that are built on our strengths. Later, in school and in our careers we develop skills that are outside our strengths. When we face challenges in those areas, we get in trouble.

The truth is, we perform better when we focus on our strengths.

This is one of the great things
about network marketing. You can work out of your strengths and build a team to help you take care of the aspects of business that you find most challenging.

Success in network marketing
comes easiest and fastest when we do our best. We do our best when we utilize our strengths.

Strength under control

posted in: strength | 2

Has anyone ever described you as gentle?

Did you take it as a compliment?

I admit, I’ve always had a negative feeling about the word. Who would want to be gentle?

Then this morning, my pastor talked about the passage in the Bible where Jesus describes himself as gentle and humble. Humble, I was OK with. Gentle, not so much.

Then my pastor defined gentleness as “strength under control.” The example he gave was wild horses that are tamed. They still have the same strength, the same horsepower if you will, but it’s been brought under control.

As I thought more about it later, I remembered one of the highest compliments I received in 20-plus years as a journalist. A state legislator who I had interviewed numerous times told me I was a “gentleman reporter.”

I told him I appreciated it, but I wasn’t exactly sure what he meant until a few years later when a colleague wrote a column about me when I was leaving the paper. He pointed out that some reporters thought you should do whatever it takes to get the story, and added that I would disagree with that but get the story anyway.

As I thought about that, it brought to mind my pastor’s description of humbleness as “the sane estimate of ourselves and our abilities.”

I’ve often underestimated myself and my abilities simply because I didn’t want to appear stuck up or overconfident. That’s not exactly insane, but it wasn’t good thinking either.

I’m not sure where I got it, but somewhere along the way I got the erroneous idea that thinking less of myself would somehow allow other people to think better of themselves.

Life doesn’t work that way. In fact, the opposite is true. It is by being true to ourselves that others are better able to get in touch with their true selves.
