Success Kindergarten – Be Nice

Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracy, and other success coaches have many techniques, some advanced, to move people forward. I have figured out that I am not at the advanced stages. I’m not even in intermediate.

I need to go back to Success Kindergarten. I need to be nice.

Be nice!

Be nice!

This sounds easy, but it entails more than just a mental state. Questions I have to ask myself constantly are:
What is my tone of voice?
Am I imposing?
Am I listening?

It is NOT as easy as it looks on TV.

Final thought: be nice!

Exercise for Problem Solving

Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it.

–Soren Kierkegaard

Exercise helps you mentally. Philosophers have what they call a mind/body problem. They question the relationship between the brain and the body. I have no such problem. The mind is the body and the body is the mind.

A healthier body is a healthier mind. Period.

What is my IQ is the same as asking:

  • How fat am I?
  • What is my:
  • blood pressure
  • heart rate
  • glucose
  • bench press
  • How fast can I move one mile?
  • How many miles can I walk?

Question of the Morning

How to wake up quickly and get in the right frame of mind early in the morning?

The night before sets you up for success or failure. But assume you did everything right and slept enough. Even so, how to wake up and get started?

Light and sunshine
Move away from the bed and bedroom
Music
Exercise
Water with lemon or tea/coffee

I just woke, and I woke to negative thoughts. I asked myself, first, how does negativity help me? Second, what should I think about instead? Third, why do I feel this way? Fourth, how do I feel better?

You can see I made it to step four.

Now I am going to finish my water, take my music, and go for a walk. See you in a few minutes.

Early Morning Motivation

In addition to drinking a glass of water,  I’ve decided to watch a motivational video every morning.

The best part of this video @
1:30
You’re in a fight against an opponent you can’t see but oh you can feel him on your heels can’t ya…feel him breathing down your neck. You know what that is?

That’s YOU.

Your fears, your doubts, your uncertainties all lined up like a firing squad ready to shoot you out of the sky. But don’t lose heart. While they are not easily defeated they are far from invincible.

Update:
If I update a post will it be bumped to the top?

Update II:
It does if you go inside WordPress and change Published date on the post to be the current time.
