THE FIVE SUPPORT TYPES

  Most days we have challenges to face. From the very simple need to get out of bed when it's cold: to getting through a somewhat bad situation that may come unexpectedly. At times there can be so much internal dialogue that it may get overwhelming and you are tempted to give up.   Personally, I also can have self doubt that will eventually reflect on the outside, my mood and performance.  To pull out of a destructive 'rut', we need to change our thinking and switch it to the positive. Give ourselves positive distractions so we persist with our goals.   Instead of 'what if I'm not good enough' - try 'these people want to see me do well and I want to do well!' - Instantly lifts you. Enhance your results up with positive reinforcement and realistic outcomes if you persist.   As strong as I may think I am, I know I am not always ‘on game’ and always try to thank my support network.

NOT JUST TISSUES FOR THOSE WINTER SNIFFLE ISSUES

At work I have over 500hrs sick leave (70 days, not that I've counted)... so I must be doing something right or Im just not taking enough sickies.

WHEN MY SUPERWOMEN OUTFIT GETS DRY CLEANED...

"Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the one's who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it." Competitions, bodybuilding, training, getting lean, losing weight, hitting PB’s– whatever it is you are striving for - overall the experience is one of learning and development. Like the qupte says – it’s not easy, but it’s worth it! You do it because it challenges you and deep down you LOVE a challenge. People sometimes tell me that I’m always positive, motivated, happy, have great energy – and YES, most the time I choose to live my life in a way that make me better and gives me the best opportunities. Having said that, this does not mean I’m like that all the time, nor do I want to be. I am NOT on anti-depressants (or any drugs or medication ...
