Got goals? Are they accomplished?

Written by Lynne Dean


Most of us have goals.

Big ones, small ones. But not always do we follow through with them and that...humÖcould be dangerous.

You see, within a lifetime our goals may change a little or dramatically, which is fine. The problem is when you have definite goals but can't follow through with them. It's crushing. It makes you feel miserable. As if you can't accomplish anything properly. You start something but it stays unfinished. Thatísrepparttar deception we want to stay away from. It is a bad bad habit!

Here are a few tips to start fresh!

  • Write your goal down. I know it's simple but it works! On a calendar, on a notebook, perhaps put a reminder in your computer to pop up everyday. Write it anywhere where you will be able to see it and where it will make an impact to encourage action. Action isrepparttar 145041 step that will ultimately finish your goal. Tip one: write it down

  • Break it down. Smaller steps are easier and more achievable. It makes you feel better because you actually did part of your goal. Give yourself a pat onrepparttar 145042 shoulder! Tip two: smaller goals = achievable.

  • Just do it. The action that will make your story a happy story. Not being fastidious here, just realistic. Thatís where most of us fail (gym membership that you never use, correspondent course that ended without you, boxes that are still unpack after 2 years of moving in ect.). This is whererepparttar 145043 bad old habit disappears; itís whenrepparttar 145044 action replacesrepparttar 145045 inertia. Tip three: Just do it.


Negative vs positive. The ever-existing battle in your mind

Written by Lynne Dean


No news here just a statement. WE ARE ALL THINKING ALL OF THE TIME.

Can you believe that our thoughts never leave us. Wow! Silly thoughts, hungry thoughts, angry thoughts, melancholy thoughts, happy thoughts; thatís a bunch of emotions that has a significant impact on our lives. Physically, emotionally, itís all there.

Every thought is connected to our body to create a response. Example: imagine a hot summer day. There is absolutely no breeze. You are sitting on a rock inrepparttar middle of your yard. Smellrepparttar 145040 earth,repparttar 145041 heat. HEARrepparttar 145042 crickets doing their thing. The sun is hot on your body. In your hand, you have an ice cold drink. You are thirsty. Putrepparttar 145043 glass to your lips. Drink. AHHHHHH. Wasnít that nice? Were you there with me?

Thoughts influence our emotions. Try this other exercise. Think of something that makes you happy. Anything. Now think of something that you hate doing and that makes you feel miserable. Okay. Back to something that makes you smile. See. Thoughts rule our emotions instantly. Change your thoughts to happy thoughts and your emotions will change.
