Effective Communication is THE KEY to Success!


Just a little Friday positivity….


I saw the above picture on the Ellie sportswear Facebook page and I loved the message.  We all get stressed and have different methods of dealing, both good and bad.  Some take a drink, some eat, some do drugs.  On the positive side, some meditate, do yoga or exercise.  While stress seems to invade our lives more and more, we need to find positive ways to deal with things that do not involve put our heads in the pantry or looking for solutions at the bottom of the glass (I am not one who starves in stressful times, I am much more likely to search for the cheese or chips).

Better grades? Yes!

Is it possible to just change your thinking and change your grades? Yes.  A student in our program raised her grades by adjusting her thought patterns and applying some fun exercises that helped her become a better student.  Being a better student = getting better grades.

Our mind is incredibly powerful

It takes in thousands of thoughts everyday, with the capacity to help us accomplish our goals, and reach our full potential if we let it.

We have the power to choose.  The choices we make will determine the thoughts we think; the thoughts we think will also determine the choices that we make.  So, it is important to be mindful of the choices we make and the thoughts we think.  

If our thoughts are productive, then our actions will be productive. If our actions are productive, then our results will be productive.

By the same token, our mind can hinder our progress if we allow thoughts that are negative and counter-productive to become valid.

Our mind is a special gift that each of us has received. It WILL help us IF we let it.  

We will get what we think about.  So, it is important that we take the time to govern our thoughts. We can reach our goals and get the things we want by altering our thoughts and changing our actions.  

Our future is bright, and our opportunities are exciting.  Let’s take full advantage of the opportunities we have and the future before us by magnifying our thoughts in a Positive and Productive way.  WE can learn how to alter our thoughts and change our behavior so that the life we want and the successes we desire can be ours.
