10 Ways to Start Taking Control

multitask Did you know that perhaps as many as half of all entrepreneurs have Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Are you one of them?

At first glance, it would seem that the topics of positive thinking and ADD have nothing to do with one another. But many of us with ADD develop negative thinking patterns because we become frustrated by our challenges and frequent feelings of being overwhelmed. This negative outlook then makes it even harder for us to manage those challenges and move forward.

Practicing positive thinking allows people with ADD to focus on our strengths and accomplishments, which increasing happiness and motivation. This, in turn, allows us to spend more time making progress, and less time feeling down and stuck. The following tips provide practical suggestions that you can use to help you shift into more positive thinking patterns (of course, if you don’t have ADD, these tips will work for you, as well):

1. Take Good Care of Yourself
It’s much easier to be positive when you are eating well, exercising, and getting enough rest.

2. Remind Yourself of the Things You Are Grateful For
Stresses and challenges don’t seem quite as bad when you are constantly reminding yourself of the things that are right in life. Taking just 60 seconds a day to stop and appreciate the good things will make a huge difference. As for myself, mentally listing those things I’m thankful for is the last thing I do each day before shutting my eyes and going to sleep. I figure it makes for good dreams.

The Challenge of the Law of Attraction

loa2 Since The Secret came out, the Law of Attraction has, well, gained a lot of traction. Some people praise it. Others try to vilify it. But mostly, there is a lot of confusion about it.

The Law of Attraction isn’t new, and it’s been available to all humans whether they are small, large, black or white, Christian or Muslim, since the dawn of time. You see, we have the ability as humans to get exactly what we want in life. The key to gaining the most out of the Law of Attraction is to be conscious of these powers and understand how to use them.

O.K. This post may repeat a bit of what was posted on Dec. 1, but I think it bears repeating. These are the key concepts of the Law of Attraction and they are the keys to your success in life and business.

We are thinking thought most of the day. Of course, most of them are very mundane. However, we could, if we wanted to, think of how it would be to be like to have what we wanted. For example, if you want to be rich, think like a rich person. If you want to be svelte, think like a svelte person. You get the picture.

The Secrets to Self-Confidence

From The Wizard of Oz, © Warner Bros.

The person who thrives in their self-confidence is courageous. This person is “able to face and deal with danger or fear without flinching.” This person is bold, undaunted, valiant. Are you this person?

When it comes to having a successful business, you need to be — at least in the eyes of your clients, customers and business partners.

Let me tell you a little story about myself. I’m an introvert and am quite shy. People who know me, however, don’t believe me when I say that — until they see me at a gathering of people I don’t know.

I seem to have the knack for doing what I need to do, when I need to do it, with an air on confidence. For example, when I was in my mid-20s, I moved to Southern California for a job and rented a place of my own. The people I met there told me I was brave to move to a place where I knew not a soul. But I didn’t feel that way — my other option was to be jobless and living at home with my mother. (I love you, Mom, but I’m a big girl now and want to live on my own.)

People who have self-confidence seem to accept any challenge that they are posed with and are able to overcome those challenges with ease and success. At least that’s how it seems. That’s the point of my little story — you don’t have to think you’re confident to act confidently.

People invest millions of dollars each year attending seminars and counseling sessions to discover the self-confidence that they lack. In this article, I will review the steps you need to take to gain self-confidence — without the added expense.

Your Mind Power Attracts Your Rewards

loa1 The theme for December’s posting is “Mindset.” You might be amazed at how powerful how you think about yourself and your business determines your success. Since December is a good time to start planning out your New Year’s resolutions, I thought this would be the best time to talk about mindset, for without the proper mindset, all your plans will be for naught. First, lets explore a hot topic right now — The Law of Attraction.

Attraction is everywhere; even our cells attract themselves in our body. But does mind power and attraction go together? In a word, yes.

The Law of Attraction is sort of the medium between the physical and the non-physical world. Basically, without it, we wouldn’t really have the things we want the most. Science has finally been able to prove that there is a direct link between what we get and the Power of Attraction. In fact it can even look at the attraction in the physical sense.

What can be said about this mind power? Basically it’s what we think. We think therefore we are. And what we think about expands. We could even say that it’s our thoughts that influence our daily lives.

A cake is just a cake right? If this is the case, a thought is just a thought, no? But that’s not really the case when you add feeling to that thought. Together, thought and feeling, have great power. And, the choice of how to feel is yours to make.
