There’s only one thing that can guarantee our failure,
and that’s if we quit.
Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.
Winners are not those who never fail,
but those who never quit.
People of mediocre ability
sometimes achieve outstanding success
because they don’t know when to quit.
Most men succeed because they are determined to.

I’VE SEEN IT MANY MANY TIMES…
that someone had an unbelievable genetics, and body
but lacked the head, heart & guts to make it to the stage,
and then there was another with total inferior genetics,
but had a GREAT HEART, DETERMINED & STRONG MIND,
and THE GUTS TO STEP ON THAT STAGE…
and it was the 2nd person that reaped the GLORY,
whether they won the title, or trophy or not
they were the one who was successful
purely because they didn’t give up and overcame the obstacles,
made the sacrifices
and put themselves out there to finish the race & reach their goal…
THIS IS A CHAMPION
in every sense of the word !

Overcome your fear.
Get out of your comfort zone.
Find out you have a pulse.
Let something give you butterflies in your stomach.
This is how you know you’re alive
how you grow into something new.
Every fear overcome is a freedom gained.
Don’t know how to overcome fear?
Do the thing you’re afraid of.
Cross them off the list.
Make it a game.
Pretty soon, you will be invincible.

“You cannot expect to achieve new goals
or move beyond your present circumstances
unless you change.”

“Every single condition in your life
can be improved
if you learn to be more effective at visualizing what you want
and having the intention to manifest it.”

“To live is the rarest thing in the world.
Most people exist, that is all.”

“Life will break you.
Nobody can protect you from that,
and living alone won’t either,
for solitude will also break you with its yearning.
You have to love.
You have to feel.
It is the reason you are here on earth.
You are here to risk your heart.
You are here to be swallowed up.
And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed,
or left, or hurt,
or death brushes near,
let yourself sit by an apple tree
and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps,
wasting their sweetness.
Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”

Welcome every morning with a smile.
Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator,
another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday.
Be a self-starter.
Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action
that is certain to echo through your entire day.
Today will never happen again.
Don’t waste it with a false start
or no start at all.
You were not born to fail.

Let go of Anger and Bitterness
11. Feel it fully. If you stifle your feelings, they may leak out and affect everyone around you—not just the person who inspired your anger. Before you can let go of any emotion, you have to feel it fully.

12. Give yourself a rant window. Let yourself vent for a day before confronting the person who troubled you. This may diffuse the hostility and give you time to plan a rational confrontation.

13. Remind yourself that anger hurts you more than the person who upset you, and visualize it melting away as an act of kindness to yourself.

14. If possible, express your anger to the person who offended you. Communicating how you feel may help you move on. Keep in mind that you can’t control how the offender responds; you can only control how clearly and kindly you express yourself.

15. Take responsibility. Many times when you’re angry, you focus on what someone else did that was wrong, which essentially gives away your power. When you focus on what you could have done better, you often feel empowered and less bitter.

16. Put yourself in the offender’s shoes. We all make mistakes, and odds are you could have easily slipped up just like your husband, father, or friend did. Compassion dissolves anger.

17. Metaphorically throw it away. For example, jog with a backpack full of tennis balls. After you’ve built up a bit of rush, toss the balls one by one, labeling each as a part of your anger. (You’ll need to retrieve these—litter angers the earth!)

18. Use a stress ball, and express your anger physically and vocally when you use it. Make a scrunched up face or grunt. You may feel silly, but this allows you to actually express what you’re feeling inside.

19. Wear a rubber band on your wrist and gently flick it when you start obsessing on angry thoughts. This trains your mind to associate that type of persistent negativity with something unpleasant.

20. Remind yourself these are your only three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it. These acts create happiness; holding onto bitterness never does.

To be yourself
in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else
is the greatest accomplishment.

Be who you are
and say what you feel,
because those who mind don’t matter
and those who matter don’t mind.

Xanthan Gum :: Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods
www.bobsredmill.com
Gum, Xanthan is used by people who are allergic to gluten
to add volume and viscosity to bread and other gluten-free baked goods.
It is made from a tiny microorganism called Xanthomonas campestris
and is a natural carbohydrate.
Get it at the SuperStore! Organic aisle!
It comes in a bag and pretty much looks like baking powder (it costed me 11.99 for the bag)!!
