Put your Mind & Body on “Autopilot” and reach your goals…automatically!

Did you know that habits are incredibly powerful tools for personal growth and success?

Think about the habits you have now and how they affect virtually every aspect of your life. Your weight and health are determined by your eating habits. Your relationships with people are determined by your social habits. Your success at work is determined by your work habits. You have sleeping habits that dictate how well you sleep. You have sexual habits. You even have buying habits; just take a look around your house and you will quickly see them. Our character, health and virtually every aspect of our lives are indeed determined by our habits.

If you ask ten people on the street what the word habit means, nine out of ten will tell you that a habit is a negative action that people do over and over again, like smoking, or procrastinating, or eating too much. Bad habits get all the press. Let’s look at the results of just one bad habit: smoking. Every year, over 400,000 people lose their lives to smoking-related illnesses in the United States. Imagine then, the negative power that exists in just that one bad habit. It is staggering.

Now I want you think about an even greater power, a power that can bring you success, health and happiness; a power for positive, permanent, and automatic personal growth: the power of positive habits. Let’s look a little closer at the meaning of the word habit. Random House dictionary defines habit in this way:

Habit: An acquired behavior pattern regularly followed until it has become almost involuntary.

The important words in this definition are acquired and almost involuntary. Let me ask you a question. When is the last time you sat down and said to yourself, “Today I am going to add a new habit to my life?” I would venture to guess that you have probably never said those words. As you read this article, you will see how easy it is to add positive habits to your life and the great power they have to change it. Think about the words almost involuntary. This means the habit is so powerful in your mind that it is almost unstoppable! With respect to bad habits like smoking, procrastination, and overeating, this is very bad. But with positive habits, this is very, very good.

What is a positive habit?

A positive habit is simply a habit that produces positive benefits, actions and attitudes you want to acquire and make a part of your life. Why is there such great power in positive habits to effect change? Because habits, by their very nature, are automatic. After a period of time they can become permanent.

So how do we go about adding new positive habits to our life? It’s really quite easy. You simply begin repeating an action, attitude or thought process every day for at least 21 days. Research has shown that an action that is repeated for a minimum of 21 days is likely to become a permanent habit. Remember that positive habits have positive benefits and you will reap those benefits for as long as you maintain that habit. So now that we know what positive habits are, and how to acquire them, let’s look at some simple positive habits from the book that will help you reach your goals and have a healthier body.

Positive Habit– Make it a habit to set goals

Since we are talking about goals, what better habit could you have then the habit of setting goals? Did you know that the most successful people all share the common positive habit of goal setting? A study was done to determine the importance of goal setting. College students who had gone on to achieve great success in business were asked to list their habits. The students who had made a habit of setting goals were in the top 3% of earnings in the population! It is almost impossible to overestimate the value of goal-setting as a positive habit. Goal setting is simple, yet 97% of the population never do it. By making goal setting a positive habit, you can start placing yourself in the top 3% of the population of successful people.

Here are some simple steps to help you start making goal setting a positive habit:

Step 1 – Define your goals, write them down, and be very specific; capture your goals on paper. It is amazing how many people never take the time to write down exactly what it is they want in life. Remember, you can’t hit a target if you don’t have one.

Step 2 – Determine what the time line is for reaching your goals; set specific deadlines for each goal.

Step 3 – Identify any obstacles that may stand in your way, list them, and state how you plan to overcome them.

Step 4 – Make a list of the people and/or organizations who will help you reach your goals.

Positive Habit  – Take Flax Every Day for a Healthy, Trim Body and Lower Cholesterol!

What is flax?

Flax is a blue-flowering plant known for its oil-rich seed. People have been eating flaxseed since ancient times, it has a pleasant, nutty flavor. The health benefits of flaxseed and flaxseed oil are significant and for that reason this habit is recommended as a primary habit for health and a trim and fit body. Here are some of the benefits of flaxseed and flaxseed oil:

Flaxseed contains both soluble and insoluble fiber. Several studies have shown that flaxseed can help to lower cholesterol in the same way that other soluble fiber foods like oat bran and fruit pectin do. A study at the University of Toronto showed that total cholesterol levels dropped 9% and LDL (the “bad” cholesterol) decreased 18% among a group of women who ate milled flaxseed cooked into bread every day for a period of 4 weeks.

Flaxseed is one of the richest sources of lignans and alpha-linolenic acid. Studies suggest that lignans may help to prevent certain cancers. Flaxseed is one of the few plants in the plant kingdom that provide a high ratio of alpha-linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid) to linoleic (omega-6 fatty acids), it is an excellent source of healthy polyunsaturated fat.

A new study has confirmed that the positive habit of taking flax seed daily can help you get a trim and fit body. I interviewed Dr. Sam Bhathena, a researcher at the Phytonutrients Laboratory of the US department of Agriculture, he said, “we have observed that flax seed meal is much more effective in lowering cholesterol then soy. Several other studies have shown that in general, omega-3 fatty acids,lower lipid deposition, and help in reducing body weight.”

Omega-3 fatty acids

More than half the fat contained in flaxseed is omega-3 fatty acid type, an essential fatty acid. There have been numerous studies reporting the health benefits of consuming omega-3 fats. Recent studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids which are abundant in flax seed can help protect you from coronary artery disease, stroke, high blood pressure, autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. Studies on the effects of flax seed on breast cancer are now under way. Omega-3s can also help boost your metabolism, helping your body to burn calories faster.

Flax is available as raw seed, ground seed and also as an oil which is made by cold pressing flax seeds. You can purchase raw flax seed, ground flax seed and flax seed oil at most health food stores. The easiest way to incorporate flax seed into your diet is to buy ground flax seed meal and add it to your food.

Substitute for cooking oil or shortening in baked goods.
· Add ground flax seed to pancakes, waffles and cereals.
· Put ground flax seed on salads.

Here is a great recipe for a super health shake. Make a protein shake with 8 ounces of your favorite juice such as apple or orange, add 2 tablespoons of flax seed oil, 2 tablespoons of soy powder, 1 tablespoon of lecithin, fresh fruit such as bananas, papayas or blueberries. Blend with a hand blender or an electric blender. This power shake will provide you with the health benefits of soy; omega-3’s, fiber, antioxidants, and enzymes from the fruit, and the fat loss benefits of lecithin.

Setting Goals For Success In Whatever You Do

Establishing goals and accomplishing them are two totally different things. Setting a goal is simply the initial step towards a desired end, but actually accomplishing those goals is another issue. Many set goals, but few actually see them come to fruition.

Being focused and determined to reach that goal with a firm, sensible plan of action separates the dreamers from the achievers. Various roadblocks will come your way as you go for your goal. Here are five timeless techniques that will help get the success you want.

1. What is your exact goal? Know what you are trying to accomplish as the end result. Use specifics. Being precise is vital and will be the measure of your success. Don’t be vague. Remember, dreamers do absolutely nothing but dream. This applies to all areas of life: learning an instrument, making your marriage solid, raising up your kids, succeeding at a home business. The list goes on and on. No one said success is easy, and there will be setbacks. You must stay attentive and focused on the desired end result.
2. Are you willing to pay the price? Of course, “paying a price” means work. Your success will require undivided preparation and energy. For example, let’s take building a home business. It starts with a coarse idea of a job field that interests you. Then comes the creation of an entire set of plans–a program to train you and get you started. Now you’re drawn closer to your goal. But this is only the beginning.
All worthwhile pursuits will cost you money, time, and effort. It’s simply a fact of life in many areas of life. For example, realizing financial success might signify less rest and recreational time. Composing and publishing your own book may suggest less time spent in front of the television. Bringing up your kids with high standards may lay the weight of setting a good example and giving up personal interests to be there for them. Perhaps your itinerary is jam packed. This will require you to make some major, or minor, changes to arrive at your desired destination.

3. Concentrate on your goal every day. No one likes time limits. Then it is very important that you give your goal your full attention. A consistent, positive focus must become part of your daily efforts. It is critical that you forge new positive paths in your mindsets in order to arrive at your new goal. Those old negative ways of thinking have got to go, and this will take daily concentration. After all, they are most likely the cause of any lack of succsss in reaching any goal in your life. Familiar mental habits have grooved deep paths in your subconscious thoughts. The only way to override these negative mindsets is to consciously focus on what you DO want and build up new ways of thinking repeatedly every day!

Make a fresh vow to reach your goal each and every day. Do not allow your goal to get pushed aside with every frustration and discouragment that gets in your way. I guarantee that life’s events will try to put a dent in your motivation to achieve. Just remember–get and stay on track every day. Concentrate on succeeding at your goal!

4. Get passionate. One of the most powerful qualities you can possess is a genuine passion for your goal. Passion is vital because fervent desire for your goal will fire you on and press you towards it even quicker. This is a key to success. An intense passion will also motivate you to quickly supersede any subconscious thought patterns you may have of discouragement and failure and spur you on.

5. Take constant action. This can most likely be called the most difficult step. Achieving your goal is dependent on you taking one step at a time continuously. The word action is a “verb” and requires you to keep moving forward. Make a committment to take action towards your goal every day, and it will make a difference.
So avoid sitting back, procastinating, and simply being a dreamer. Stop hoping for that big moment when everything will just mystically come together. It’s not going to happen without your conscious efforts! So determine your direction in life. Calculate exactly what you want, then chase it with a passion. Stay on it with action daily. Stop dreaming about it and do it!
