The Body achieves what the Mind believes
Greatness starts with the right mind set. If you genuinely believe that you can achieve something and you want it enough, then you will find a way to do it. Once you let self-doubt creep into your thoughts, then your motivation and determination will surely diminish. When it comes to your body you need to choose to be your best you and work to attain it. Set goals. If you are feeling lethargic, assess your eating and exercise habits. What needs to change? You need to believe in yourself and what you can accomplish first and then create a visual. In that picture are you 5lbs lighter? Do you have a more defined bicep? Are you getting through the day with more energy? What does your body need to get it to the level that your mind believes it can? Start today. First, believe you can do it and next, take that first step to make it happen.
SMALL TASK: IN CASE OF EVACUATION This is a task that you won’t have time to think about in the moment you need to, so be prepared. Make a list of the items you want to take and put it by the phone or somewhere you will see it easily. Take the things you will need, want and those that you can’t replace. Let’s start with the obvious which is all the members of your family, including your pets. Make sure they are all safely exiting. Cash, credit card and checkbook are all necessary since ATMs could be down and stores might be unable to accept credit cards. Documents like birth or marriage certificates, social security cards, wills, property deeds, or rental leases, and any other legal, financial, or insurance-related paperwork. You may not need them all right away but obtaining a replacement document may be difficult. Keys to your home, vehicles, office, storage units, or safe deposit boxes. Medication and medical supplies. Eyeglasses or contact lens supplies. Wet wipes or hand sanitizer, a toothbrush, extra underwear, and diapers. Food and water, comfortable shoes, at least one change of clothing, a jacket for each family member, flashlights, batteries, a hand-crank radio, and sleeping bags or blankets. Electronics and chargers. Lastly, photos, family heirlooms, a child's favorite toy, or valuable collectibles. Take pictures of these items now.
