How not to be a pushover

I set this development goal on something originally set called ‘Stop looking after my friends so much’.

Make time for your loved ones

So much to do in a day, yet so little time to work on my goals.

Self Improvement for the Soul: Positive Thinking

positive thinking

 

This great graphic from Healthcentral.com is a good way of highlighting all are negative thinking.  As you look through the list at the negatives think of all the barriers it creates to are self-improvement.

“I’ll mess up” is an excuse we make not to take risks.  If we don’t take a risk we cannot develop.

Ahh the Burpee, you know a exercise is going to be hard, when even the physically fit seem to despise it.

When I perform it I feel like my heart will explode, unfortunately when I die and go to hell the devil will have whole groups of us performing the exercise constantly.
