7 Steps to Positive Thinking

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreI’m sure you have a bright idea hidden somewhere in the back of your mind that you know would be a success. But, for some reason, you’re just not doing it. Maybe your mindset is blocking your action. Remember that a correct and positive attitude in whatever you do will make things easier, and even enjoyable. Why not make 2008 the year you achieve your goal and bring that idea to life using these tips?An idea takes time to form in your head and is always at work while you are busy sitting. Utilizing a bit of positive thinking can help you begin to realize your dreams even if you’re just sitting on your favorite couch. Thinking big is indeed the entrepreneurial way and that is what makes many small businesses prosperous.1. Commit to yourself, as well as those you love, to create powerfully a life you can love. Instead of reacting, commit to creating from your heart and soul, out of love rather than fear. Your dream can always be there, but a dream will still be a dream without motion. You might be amazed as the transformation begins.2.  Take passionate action toward living your life by design. Talk is cheap. Action = deposits in the bank of a passionately authentic future. Without it, passion is void. This is a perfect example of where dreams are made of where you start by tinkering with your mind, then with your hands. And if the idea weakens, you can always go back to it later until you finish it.3. Recognize and embrace the thought that each moment is perfect — regardless of its outcome. Every time you hit on something that may appear too extreme, why not give it a shot and see if it will work. You will be surprised to see there are other ways to get the task done in time. If you are not pleased with the outcome, decide to use that moment to learn from and make the appropriate shift. Think of it as failing forward.4. Dwell completely in a place of gratitude. Learn to use what you have at your disposal and make use of it in the most constructive way. Slipping into neediness will become less of a habit when you repeatedly shift toward gratitude and away from poverty consciousness.5. Use a Passion Formula: Recognize/Reevaluate/Restore in place of the Shoulda/Woulda/Coulda. The former is based in increased knowledge and abundance while the latter focuses on scarcity and lack. As you face people or tasks that may seem harder than scaling Mount Everest, allow yourself to realize that the task is just as important as giving out orders to your staff. You would rather be richly passionate!6. Keep humor at the forefront of thought, laughing at and with yourself when possible. You may find yourself quite entertaining when you loosen up! Life has so much to offer — don’t allow yourself to mope around in self pity. Humor is very attractive, very passionate: life-giving.7. Believe that you are the architect of your destiny. No one can take your passionate future from you except for you! Create your life authentically.As long as there’s still breath in your body, there is no end to how much you can accomplish in a lifetime. The concept of thinking big is all about enjoying your work, which would lead to celebrate a discovery that is born within your hands. Watch everything flow into place with perfect, passionate precision.__________________________________________________C.S.

Caribbean-American women joining Women March on Washington DC

first_imgCaribbean-American women joining Women March on Washington DCFour South Florida Caribbean-American women, Hazel Martin of Jamaica, Myrna Lloyd of Barbados, and Sherna and Maxine Barnes of Antigua and Barbuda will be heading out Thursday afternoon for Washington DC. The ladies are not flying out to the nation’s capital to attend the inauguration of America’s 45th President, but to join thousands of women from across America in what has been dubbed, “The Women March on Washington,” on Saturday January 21.The idea for the march, first planned for Inauguration Day, January 20, originated on Facebook on November 9, the day after the presidential elections which Donald Trump surprisingly won over Democrat Hillary Clinton. Lloyd said when she first saw the call for the march she thought it was “a waste of time,” because Trump had won, so what would marching on Inauguration Day accomplish?” However, she said the idea quickly gained traction and positive response from a growing number of women, and men, and “morphed” from a march against Trump’s election to one supporting a variety of issues that affects women directly and indirectly.Lloyd said her purpose of going to march on Washington is to strive for family, or extended maternity, leave for women. A mother of three children born in Miami, she said on the three occasion she gave birth she had to return to work within six weeks “or risk losing my job.” She said, “This is wrong. Women need to have longer paid maternity leave for their own health, and in order to spend more time with their babies.”Martin and the Barnes also support a better family leave policy too, but fear the government could adapt tighter policies on abortion rights, and could “even try to close women clinics nationally as they try to dismantle Planned Parenthood.”“There are several major issues that affect millions of women across the country. It is important that as the Trump administration begin it is made emphatically aware of these issues, and make plans to address them effectively,” Martin said.The South Florida women had originally planned to take one of several buses heading from South Florida to DC on Thursday and Friday, but, Lloyd the coordinator of the trip for the four said, “The seats on these buses were sold out almost as soon as they went on sale.”Lloyd said she understand over 5,000 women from South Florida and 20,000 from across the state will be attending the March, which up to Wednesday morning had attracted some 240.000 women according to reports.The march is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday near the National Museum of the American Indian, close to the US Capitol, and according to Martin, should be for a distance of just over one mile.  The march will end with a rally featuring several women advocates and speakers, and a range of entertainerslast_img read more

Mahrez’s Early Goal Takes Manchester City Top Of Table

first_imgThe Cityzens got an early goal from Riyad Mahrez to get a 1-0 victory against Tottenham at Wembley Stadium on Monday night making them level at the top of the table with Liverpool on 26 points.The game was played at Wembley due to Spurs not being able to move into their new White Hart Lane was played on a rough-looking Wembley pitch that still showed lines from Sunday’s NFL game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Philadelphia Eagles.It took Mahrez only six minutes to put his team ahead, slamming a one-time shot from a Raheem Sterling pass into an empty net after Kieran Trippier had misplayed a long ball over the top of Tottenham’s defence.Man City caused problems for Spurs early in the second half, but missing the end product, with Sterling missing from close range and Kyle Walker putting too much effort on a through ball to Sergio Aguero that would have given the Argentine a clear path to the goal.Aguero wasted an excellent chance after the hour mark following some nice buildup from Man City, when he shot right at Hugo Lloris from 10 yards away with a clear look at goal.Tottenham also had the opportunity to equalize with 10 minutes to go when substitute Dele Alli, playing in his first game after missing time with a hamstring injury, setup Erik Lamela in the visitor’s penalty area only for the Spurs’ striker to shoot sky high over the crossbar.City made a sixth consecutive Premier League clean sheet to push Liverpool off the top spot on goal differential. They both have 26 points while Tottenham have 21.Relatedlast_img read more
