Everybody knows that if you feed your body with the right nutrition you will stay healthy longer.

If You Could Only Imagine

What if you could rewind your life back a day, a week, a year or even back to the time when you were born. What would you do differently?

Would you change your life completely, or just change little things that happened in your life?

What would you change first if you were going to change anything in your life? Would it be the relationship you had with your friends, with your parents, with your spouse or even with God? How would you change to make the relationships work? Would you listen more to what they said to you, or would you ask more questions?

What aspect of life that interests you the most that you never had a chance to do or accomplish. Why does that interest you? Why do you think you never had the opportunity to experience that before? What would you do differently now to make that happen?

I have just thrown out a few ideas and thoughts to ponder. It is good to review past mistakes, but not to dwell on it. Use the review of past events in your life as a positive exercise. View it as stepping-stones for a brighter future.

I had many huge disappointments and tragedies in my life and they were very difficult to handle. I have to be honest with you, I felt sorry for myself at first during those hard times. What I found out was that dwelling on past mistakes or tragedies will get you nowhere. You will stay stuck in that moment of misery and it feels horrible.

People would ask me how did you handle that terrible event. That was very difficult for me to answer because it was a series of events that occurred after the terrible event that pulled me away from it. I have to say it was the love from my family and friends that pulled me through those hard times.

If I were going to start my life over again, I would listen more to what people are really saying. I would pay attention to and follow the Word of God. What I have found out lately, the Word of God is the true road map for our journey through life.

Looking Younger

As the baby boomers turn 50 and 60, they are very conscious of their looks and how they feel. They will go to any extent to look better and feel better about themselves. For the last twenty years companies are popping up everywhere claiming they have the solution for aging.

One of the companies popping up is the cosmetic surgery business. They will tuck, reduce, remove, add, stretch and lift almost any part of your body. People will pay huge dollars for this surgery if it is going to give them the younger look they want.

The question is how safe is some of the cosmetic surgery being done? What if they make a mistake? Is the risk of complications worth it? What happens after a year and your body rejects the cosmetic surgery and you look worst before you started?

How many years does the cosmetic surgery give them the look they want? Does it last 1 year, 5 years or even 10 years? When the younger looking cosmetic surgery finally evaporates, what do you do then? Do you have it done again?

Have you ever noticed the movie stars today that had the cosmetic surgery several years ago and how they look today? Some of the stars have deformed faces and their skin looks terrible. They look a lot older now than they would have if they didn’t have the cosmetic surgery at all.

I know it is important for these movie stars to look the best they possible can because it is their profession. But, have you ever noticed the stars that have taken care of them selves, who have exercised all their life, how they look? Their aging process is much slower than the ones that have smoked, drank heavily (not talking about water) and didn’t watch what they ate.

So what is the best solution to look younger than you actually are? For this discussion, let us concentrate on the face. The face is the most visual of all our body parts that shows the aging process the most.

I have read about special exercises for the face to improve the muscles supporting the facial skin. This is a good idea, but how disciplined are you to do this exercise every day?

I have a natural alternative for looking younger and it is a non-surgical face-lift. You will look 10 to 15 years younger guaranteed! It is an all-natural solution that contains no chemicals. This all-natural, safe solution can last up to 2 weeks. If you want to start looking 10 to 15 years younger today, click here for more details.

Relationships – How to keep it solid.

Over 14 years ago I attended a workshop on relationships that was conducted by Brian Weiss. I had lost my first wife who had passed away from a sudden illness. I was searching to find the answers and I attended several workshops conducted by Brian Weiss on many different subject matters. I wanted to share my notes on this particular workshop on relationships because it helped me greatly in dealing with my two young children at the time. I hope this will help you in some way like it has helped me.

1. Those actions that promote love and understanding is positive in a relationship.  Those actions that promote anger and fear is bad for the relationship. Test these actions before acting, in your mind.

2. Communications should be free and open, without criticism, without judgment, without any need to hurt, or harm.  Communicate your love and caring.  Do not communicate to harm or hurt or to win.

3. Winning can be losing if it is ego.  Winning is what promotes love, cooperation and understanding.

4. Understanding the nature of the self, the real self is very important. This is a person that has a soul, spirit much deeper that is going on in the moment.

5. Letting go of anger.  Anger is foolish. Learn from it, see the roots of it and let it go.

6. Never speak from anger.  Words mean things.  Words have a great deal of power. Put aside your ego and pride.  Listen with detachment and perspective, not with anger.  Reach out with love and compassion without worry of what is coming back or returning to you, Your relationship will improve, it has to.  Try to be non-judgmental, non-critical.

7. Love is helping to support the other person, to promote them, to help them to feel good.  That is the loving thing to do. It is not loving to tear the other person down, to be critical. This is the opposite to loving.

8. Role switching.  Attempt as much as possible to put yourself in the other persons shoes. It helps you understand why the other person is doing or why they are acting this way.  It helps you understand where they are coming from. Through understanding comes patience and the expression of love. Understand their feelings and their emotions, where their coming from, the more you do that the easier it gets.

9. Don’t take them for granted.  Don’t stay in a rut.  Review the relationship through actions. Do loving things.  Do little things or big things.  They don’t have to be expensive.

10. The relationship is living, alive. It is in the present time. It is not in the past. Learn from the past but let it go. Don’t hold something against someone from the past. It’s over. Forgive the past. It’s over. Let it go.

11. See that person now, as they are growing and changing.

12. Help them along in their life plans and goals. We learn through relationships. We express love and receive love..

13. Security in a relationship comes from present loving actions. Comes from what you do now.

14. End dependency. You don’t want them to stay because you made them feel dependent on you somehow.  Security comes from love from present actions.

15. Promote love and self esteem.

16. Continue to love even if the other is angry, hurt, fearful.  Love will come back to you.

17. Non-violence, always! Always!

18. Touch them, hold them, let them know you love them. Don’t take them for granted. Complement them from the heart. Give them sort of a verbal massage.

19. Practicing those simple things which brings joy and happiness into the relationship.

20. Never rob anyone of their joy. Don’t say the little things which takes away from their joy.

21. Come from the heart, the true heart, not the head. When in doubt choose the heart.

22. Know yourself, so you can see clearly without the distortion of the ego.  See yourself clearly. When you project your fears to the other person, you create illusions and distortions. It not going to be accurate.  Your not seeing the other person as he or she is.

23. Know your thoughts, know your assumptions about people, about races, about height, thinness, etc.  Examine your thoughts.

24. Don’t be so attached to things. We learn through relationships. You can’t take things with you. You take with you your thoughts, your actions.

25. Experience is stronger than belief. What helps without harming is valuable.

26. Prioritize the relationship. First things first. (Football, work, or your family?) Relationships needs nurturing and attention. Detach and reset your priorities.

27. You can trust in love. Individual decision maybe harmful but love is not. Always coming from the heart.

28. Focus your attention to your partner. Pay attention. Eliminate the distractions (TV, ETC.). When your talking to each other pay attention turn off the distractions.

29. Find the thought behind the thought in your partner. Find the thought behind the emotion. Don’t be distracted by the emotion. The issue behind the thought. The real issue. Not the surface issue.

30. What is your partner fear or distortion. The more you can identify the less angry you will get. What is the core issues of that person.

31. Feel the energy connection between you. You can do this by holding hands. Let the physical barriers fade.

Fast from Wrong Thinking

Avoid Wrong Thinking and Negative Thinking.

We are bombarded with negativity everywhere we go. We see and hear negativity on TV, on the radio and in general conversation.

Wrong thinking affects your health, wealth, relationships, joy, peace and every areas of your life. These negative thoughts will develop strongholds that will control you. Fear will develop and lead to destruction.

So how do we break away from negative thinking and speaking negative?

Let’s start off by reviewing a few passages from the bible. In Proverbs 23:7As A Man Thinketh in his Heart, So Is He”. In other words you are what you think. Another passage is from Mark 11:23 ”but shall Believe that those Things which he Saith shall Come to Pass; He shall have whatsoever he Saith”. Thus a person shall be or have whatsoever he thinks and says from his heart. So be careful what you say and wish for.

To break away from this negative thinking and negative speaking, you must change your mental focus. Mental focus is what we all are concentrating on, either consciously or unconsciously. We must control what we are paying attention too. You make decisions based on what you focus on.

You can control your focus by the way you evaluate things. Evaluations are nothing but questions we ask ourselves. Your brain likes pleasures and the quality of how we ask questions to ourselves determines our focus.

When you ask a question to yourself it instantly changes your focus. It changes what we are trying to erase in our mind. Helps you get access to resources within yourself.

Thus to control your focus (attitude), ask great questions to yourself. Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • What can I do to obtain long-term success and results that I want?
  • What can I learn from this experience?
  • How can I use this situation to help people and help myself?
  • What do I respect about this person?
  • What is great in your life right now?
  • How can I make this happen right now and have fun doing it?
  • How can this be done?
  • What can I learn from this?
  • What can I do today that will make a breakthrough in my life or business?
  • What can I do today that will help me connect more with my family?

So use these questions or questions similar to these (notice all begins with What & How) and change what you are focusing on. Let’s change our lives according to God’s Words.
