Steps of Power. That sounds cool, doesn't it? It sounds like if you walk, jog, or even run up a series of steps and WHAM!!! You are empowered!
Resolutions. I bet you made one about a week or so ago with good intention. But if you want results, if you don't want to be saying "what resolution?" in a matter of weeks, then you need empowerment.
While the walk, jog, or run up the steps of power might not be without it's unexpected obstacles, by continuing to put one foot in front of the other, by knowing that you are going to arrive at your destination, your success and achievement are all but guaranteed. Yes, these steps are every bit as empowering as you would like to believe they are. But it's not the steps themselves that change mindsets and bring about empowerment. It is the willingness to tackle them…at all costs.
The Best You've Ever Been. Isn't that the bottom line of every resolution? We resolve to be better. We resolve to be our best. Too many people resign themselves to the belief that we are destined to roll with the punches, to move along with the masses trapped in the river of life, allowing the current to take them in random and unintended directions. You're not one of those people. Maybe at times you feel caught up in the clutter, but you are not satisfied. You want something more.
Health. That is what is most sought after. We want to take control of our health and wellness. We want to age gracefully, maintaining function, independence and an incredible lust for life. We want to be living each day in an energized state with a true passion for life. It's about having the ability and energy to perform at the highest levels whether it's at work, with your family, team, or friends.
The following is a list of 16 steps to a Healthy Lifestyle:
- Set the goals you wish to attain.
- Write it down – keep a journal.
- Make a list of habits you need to let go of.
- Develop a plan of action that inspires you.
- Be sure it is based upon reality.
- Carefully define your philosophy of life.
- Note beliefs that you have associated with unwanted habits, (ie: fear)
- Take small daily steps toward creating your change.
- Expect set backs – this is the nature of life after all.
- Stay focused, learn from your setbacks and make needed adjustments.
- Take on only what you can handle without stressing yourself out.
- Take it one day at a time.
- Know that it takes time, perseverance and commitment to reach your goals.
- Know that you do have what it takes.
- Visualize, feel, and be your success.
- Reward yourself for every little step you take. You deserve it.
I believe that if we are going to succeed, we need to start with a clean slate. Forgive past mistakes, let them go. We can't change the past and there is astounding benefit by putting our energies into today.
So, let me give you a place to start. Let's develop a mental and physical clearing through cleansing the toxins from our bodies and creating an environment that supports our need for change and our creations of excellence.
The Herbal Path offers several detoxification kits that are convenient and easy to use. They basically contain encapsulated herbs which extract toxins. Toxins like to hide out in your fat cells, and your brain is 60% fat! The toxic elements are released into your blood stream, absorbed by fiber (either capsules or a powdered drink), and eliminated with the aid of essential fatty acids (available in capsule or you can take it by the spoonful!)
Toxins act like little "interruptors". They interrupt all functions of the body system and keep it from functioning at it's absolute best. We become toxic from the massive amounts of environmental pollutants, processed foods and food additives, prescription and over the counter drugs and cellular metabolism.
A good, quality cleanse (my favorites are from ReNew Life) is an excellent kick off for creating room for the change we desire both in our bodies and in our minds. Allow yourself to start your transformation at the beginning. Rid your body and brain of toxins and your mind of self-imposed limitations.
