Put your Mind & Body on "Autopilot" and reach your goals...automatically!
Did you know that habits are incredibly powerful tools
for personal growth and success?
Think about the habits you have now and how they affect virtually every
aspect of your life. Your weight and health are determined by your eating
habits. Your relationships with people are determined by your social habits.
Your success at work is determined by your work habits. You have sleeping
habits that dictate how well you sleep. You have sexual habits. You even
have buying habits; just take a look around your house and you will quickly
see them. Our character, health and virtually every aspect of our lives are
indeed determined by our habits.
If you ask ten people on the street
what the word habit means, nine out of ten will tell you that a habit is a
negative action that people do over and over again, like smoking, or
procrastinating, or eating too much. Bad habits get all the press. Letís
look at the results of just one bad habit: smoking. Every year, over 400,000
people lose their lives to smoking-related illnesses in the United States.
Imagine then, the negative power that exists in just that one bad habit. It
Now I want you think about an even
greater power, a power that can bring you success, health and happiness; a
power for positive, permanent, and automatic personal growth: the power of
positive habits. Letís look a little closer at the meaning of the word
habit. Random House dictionary defines habit in this way:
Habit: An acquired behavior pattern
regularly followed until it has become almost involuntary.
The important words in this definition
are acquired and almost involuntary. Let me ask you a question. When is the
last time you sat down and said to yourself, "Today I am going to add a new
habit to my life?" I would venture to guess that you have probably never
said those words. As you read this article, you will see how easy it is to
add positive habits to your life and the great power they have to change it.
Think about the words almost involuntary. This means the habit is so
powerful in your mind that it is almost unstoppable! With respect to bad
habits like smoking, procrastination, and overeating, this is very bad. But
with positive habits, this is very, very good.
What is a positive habit? A positive
habit is simply a habit that produces positive benefits, actions and
attitudes you want to acquire and make a part of your life. Why is there
such great power in positive habits to effect change? Because habits, by
their very nature, are automatic. After a period of time they can become
So how do we go about adding new
positive habits to our life? Itís really quite easy. You simply begin
repeating an action, attitude or thought process every day for at least 21
days. Research has shown that an action that is repeated for a minimum of 21
days is likely to become a permanent habit. Remember that positive habits
have positive benefits and you will reap those benefits for as long as you
maintain that habit. So now that we know what positive habits are, and how
to acquire them, letís look at some simple positive habits from the book
that will help you reach your goals and have a healthier body.
Positive Habit #53 - Make it a habit to
Since we are talking about goals, what
better habit could you have then the habit of setting goals? Did you know
that the most successful people all share the common positive habit of goal
setting? A study was done to determine the importance of goal setting.
College students who had gone on to achieve great success in business were
asked to list their habits. The students who had made a habit of setting
goals were in the top 3% of earnings in the population! It is almost
impossible to overestimate the value of goal-setting as a positive habit.
Goal setting is simple, yet 97% of the population never do it. By making
goal setting a positive habit, you can start placing yourself in the top 3%
of the population of successful people.
Here are some simple steps to help you
start making goal setting a positive habit:
Step 1 - Define your goals, write them
down, and be very specific; capture your goals on paper. It is amazing how
many people never take the time to write down exactly what it is they want
in life. Remember, you canít hit a target if you donít have one.
Step 2 - Determine what the time line
is for reaching your goals; set specific deadlines for each goal.
Step 3 - Identify any obstacles that
may stand in your way, list them, and state how you plan to overcome them.
Step 4 - Make a list of the people
and/or organizations who will help you reach your goals.
Positive Habit #3 - Take Flax Every Day
for a Healthy, Trim Body and Lower Cholesterol!
What is flax?
Flax is a blue-flowering plant known
for its oil-rich seed. People have been eating flaxseed since ancient times,
it has a pleasant, nutty flavor. The health benefits of flaxseed and
flaxseed oil are significant and for that reason this habit is recommended
as a primary habit for health and a trim and fit body. Here are some of the
benefits of flaxseed and flaxseed oil:
Flaxseed contains both soluble and
insoluble fiber. Several studies have shown that flaxseed can help to lower
cholesterol in the same way that other soluble fiber foods like oat bran and
fruit pectin do. A study at the University of Toronto showed that total
cholesterol levels dropped 9% and LDL (the "bad" cholesterol) decreased 18%
among a group of women who ate milled flaxseed cooked into bread every day
for a period of 4 weeks.
Flaxseed is one of the richest sources
of lignans and alpha-linolenic acid. Studies suggest that lignans may help
to prevent certain cancers. Flaxseed is one of the few plants in the plant
kingdom that provide a high ratio of alpha-linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty
acid) to linoleic (omega-6 fatty acids), it is an excellent source of
healthy polyunsaturated fat.
A new study has confirmed that the
positive habit of taking flax seed daily can help you get a trim and fit
body. I interviewed Dr. Sam Bhathena, a researcher at the Phytonutrients
Laboratory of the US department of Agriculture, he said, "we have observed
that flax seed meal is much more effective in lowering cholesterol then soy.
Several other studies have shown that in general, omega-3 fatty acids,lower
lipid deposition, and help in reducing body weight."
Omega-3 fatty acids ó More than half
the fat contained in flaxseed is omega-3 fatty acid type, an essential fatty
acid. There have been numerous studies reporting the health benefits of
consuming omega-3 fats. Recent studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids
which are abundant in flax seed can help protect you from coronary artery
disease, stroke, high blood pressure, autoimmune and inflammatory disorders.
Studies on the effects of flax seed on breast cancer are now under way.
Omega-3s can also help boost your metabolism, helping your body to burn
Flax is available as raw seed, ground
seed and also as an oil which is made by cold pressing flax seeds. You can
purchase raw flax seed, ground flax seed and flax seed oil at most health
food stores. The easiest way to incorporate flax seed into your diet is to
buy ground flax seed meal and add it to your food.
∑ Substitute for cooking oil or
shortening in baked goods.
∑ Add ground flax seed to pancakes, waffles and cereals.
∑ Put ground flax seed on salads.
Here is a great recipe for a super
health shake. Make a protein shake with 8 ounces of your favorite juice such
as apple or orange, add 2 tablespoons of flax seed oil, 2 tablespoons of soy
powder, 1 tablespoon of lecithin, fresh fruit such as bananas, papayas or
blueberries. Blend with a hand blender or an electric blender. This power
shake will provide you with the health benefits of soy; omega-3ís, fiber,
antioxidants, and enzymes from the fruit, and the fat loss benefits of
