All successful people have at least one thing in common: A success mindset.       
It doesn’t matter if they are a businessperson, an artist, a successful athlete, or an inventor. They all have the attitude and qualities to rise above their own personal troubles and to see things others can’t or don’t see.
Why is it that some people are more successful than their peers are? They may be average in looks and come from backgrounds with various struggles and little money. Yet they become very successful.

Your lot in life isn’t what determines what you can or cannot achieve. Having the right state of mind is a key factor to being successful in business and life in general. The way you think about succeeding can help you move ahead or keep you stagnant

.
Many times our thoughts are what hold us back from succeeding at something. We second-guess ourselves. We have doubts. We have negative thoughts or opinions. We tell ourselves that we aren’t good enough, smart enough, talented enough, or whatever fits the situation. This is all self-sabotaging behavior, which can be changed.

There are many reasons why we do this. It could be fear of the unknown. It can come from the action being outside our comfort zone. It might be we were raised to think in a certain way. Whatever the cause, mindset has a profound effect on how we succeed in life.
Anyone can develop a success mindset and harness the power it has to change your life. One of the first things you need to realize is that to be successful you have to be prepared for it in your mind.

What is mindset and why does it profoundly affect how we see things?
In this report, we will look at what mindset is and how the wrong mindset can be sabotaging your success. The reasons behind this behavior will be discussed. Finally, we will give you tips for developing a success mindset.

What is Mindset?
Everyone has heard of the law of attraction and positive thinking. Mindset is these and more. Mindset is the way we perceive success. It is the negative, fear induced thoughts that hold you back versus positive, self-supporting thoughts that help you grow.

Your mindset has three basic parts - your IQ, the behavioral patterns you’ve learned, and your abilities or skills. Your mindset is your beliefs about yourself and your most basic qualities. It’s what you believe about your intelligence, your talent, your personality, and your abilities. It’s the belief of whether you believe these traits are fixed traits that can’t be changed or if they can be learned and improved upon throughout your life.

Succeed– intelligence, skills, t etcalent,. They believe they are guaranteed success simply because of the characteristics and talents they already have. They seldom try new things, take chances, or look at things from a different perspective.

People with a fixed mindset often worry about their mindset traits and their suitability. They often feel that they have to prove things to themselves and others. Yet, they only do what they feel comfortable doing. They can achieve some success but more often than not, they reach a ceiling that keeps them from moving any further up the success chain.

Growth Mindset
People with a growth mindset believe anyone can achieve success with hard work and a believer’s attitude. They don’t believe in quitting. This allows them to strive while others run into roadblocks.
These people believe everyone is teachable. They are willing to learn what they need to in order to grow to the next level. People with a growth mindset believe they have some natural abilities in certain areas but it must be cultivated in order to take full advantage of it.

They know there is always room to improve on what they know and they’re not afraid to fail. They know trying and failing are important parts of learning and achieving. They are willing to put in the effort to succeed by taking action that moves them toward their goals.

There are two kinds of mindset: fixed mindset and growth mindset.   Fixed Mindset
People who have a fixed mindset believe they were born with everything they need to
Your mindset is made up of your skills, your intelligence, and your behavioral patterns. Some believe they are fixed and cannot be changed or enhanced.

Others see them as the starting point to growth and change. Why do You Have Self-sabotaging Behavior?
Self-sabotage is when part of your personality acts in conflict with another part of your personality. If you want to succeed, why do you sabotage it with your behavior?

Bad habits, negative self-talk, and other self-defeating behaviors can come from many sources.
Self-sabotage is often associated with poor self-esteem, low self-worth, and no self-confidence. You can suffer from this type of behavior pattern because you can’t effectively control your emotions. You react to circumstances or people in ways that prevent you from reaching your goals.

Self-sabotage is used to cope during difficult situations or times when you feel like you are not capable or worthy.
Here are four causes of self-defeating behavior:

1. Anticipating failure. You may be accustomed to situations failing or not turning out as you hoped. Dysfunctional or negative people may be pulling you down. You could be afraid to try something different because you don’t want to risk failing.

2. Bad habits. Unhealthy behaviors or thoughts like excessive drinking, smoking, uncontrolled anger, or overeating can cause you to stick with what is familiar. You tell yourself you can’t change these habits so why try.
Internalized negative thoughts. If you grew up with a parent who always saw the negative side of everything, worried about what could go wrong, or how they looked to others, you may have taken on a similar attitude without even knowing it.

1. Listening to your critical inner voice. This voice is formed from experiences early in our life. You internalize the attitudes of others directed toward you. Because others may have seen you as lazy, you may have grown up feeling useless.

Your self-sabotaging inner voice might tell you not to try. For example, “Why bother? You’ll never succeed anyway.” Self-sabotage is often an unconscious thought or behavior that is in direct conflict with our desire to succeed.

Avoid Self-Sabotage  now that you know why you are sabotaging your success, you need to learn how to avoid these thoughts and behaviors to achieve the success you desire. To do this you need to be aware of when you are in this state.

Before You travel check it out

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                      

 

 

 

 

Before You travel check it out

 Are you planning a vacation out of the United States? You will need a passport.  Pay attention to make sure your passport is ready.                                                                             Go to your favorite pharmacy and have them take Passport photos. Once you have the photos, go to the Post Office to obtain  an application.                                

You will have to provide proof of identity and proof of citizenship at this time.              Be sure to allow about three weeks for processing                                                               Make 2 Xerox copies of your passport before your trip. Take 1 copy with you and leave the other copy with a family member or trusted friend.                                                                                             Keep the copy stored in your baggage, or as suggested, the copy be scanned into your phone, Having this Digital copy will help speed up the replacement process.                          
*Suppose you already have a passport? Be sure to check when it was issued.                      It may  need to
be reissued. Follow the procedure   above to do this. Once again, allow three weeks for  processing.

* Has your name changed since your passport was issued?  You need to take a valid passport,
 a copy of your marriage certificate, or divorce documents, or a court order to have your passport reissued.                                      
*Has your passport been lost or stolen? You will need a statement regarding your stolen passport.                                                  
                                        You will need to file DS-11 passport application. You will also have to provide
proof of identity and citizenship. This also requires a recent passport photograph. Report it as soon as possible.
                                                     Make an appointment with the local US Embassy if you are in a foreign country.  Most times  a temporary replacement  is issued in  2 days. You will need it for any border crossings or for identification.                                                                   You will have to complete a declaration that your passport has been lost or stolen   lf you happen to find it, you cannot  travel on it.  Once it is reported stolen, you have to get a replacement.                            
You must be age eighteen, or older. The  requirements
for a first time passport remain the same.                          
*If you are traveling with a minor child, they must use their own passport (even if they are a newborn)
 when traveling internationally by air.                     
Once they reach eighteen they must present
the most recent passport and a recent photograph. If the previous passport was issued
more than fifteen years ago, it must be reissued,                                   
When you apply for a passport, consider ordering a passport card ($30) at the same time.                                            
It is not valid for international travel, but could simplify getting a replacement passport.                                               
*A final note to mention is that if you wanted to receive an expedited passport, it can be processed
 for an additional fee.                              
Enjoy your vacation.

Today we have a guest post by someone

Big Succulent Plant

succlent plant on display

who has some time saving tips to share with you.  Please make her feel welcome.  bctt tweet=”7 Furniture cleaning Tips That Will Make Your Life Easier. Read the article at thinkcreativelysouthern.com”

An empty house denotes no meaning. It shows no distinction. It does not recognize the individuality of the homeowner. Thus, pieces of furniture have become a necessity in any house. Furniture comes in different types. Some opt for glass-made furniture while others opt for furniture with wood surfaces.

If you have wood surfaced pieces of furniture at home, it is important to take extra care of it since wood entails extra special care compared to non-wood home furnishings. Thus, cleaning is an important measure in order for you to take good care of your things. Onlycanistervacuum has prepared some helpful cleaning tips that may be handy:

Identify the type of wood finish
Wood finishes come in different types. It varies from hard to soft finishes. Some comes in clear or painted finishes. Proper identification of the type of wood finishes will help you recognize appropriate cleaning methods.
Observe regular dusting

For all types of wood finishes, it is a must to observe regular dusting. You can use a clean, fur-free permeable cloth for dusting. Dusting should be done more than a few times a week. As a result, you suspend fast accumulation of soil and other dirt on the surface.

Protect it from direct heat of the sun
The pieces of furniture you have should be displayed in areas where it cannot be reached by the direct heat of the sun. Too much heat from the sun will make your wood furnishings dried out. On extreme cases, it can remove the color of the wood.

If however, your home furnishings have been exposed to sunlight and is susceptible to drying up, it is recommended for you to use a dehumidifier or humidifier. It helps to keep the wood surfaces from drying up.
Use protective materials

There are accidental circumstances that make you scratch your wood furniture. Hence to avoid it, it is important to use protective felt. Use tablecloth runners on wood surfaces such as a nightstand or middle tables. On the other hand, use appropriate plates for items being placed on wood surfaces. Coasters are used for glasses while vase plates are used for flower vases or indoor plants.

Polish it for further protection
To polish wood surfaces is a good cleaning measure to attain optimum protection for your home furnishings. You can use natural or commercial polishing materials. You can use linseed oil and turpentine as ingredients for polishing materials. For commercial uses, there are a lot of polishing materials sold on specialty stores.

 

 

Wash your wood furnishings
One important cleaning tip for furniture is annually washing your wood furnishings. Mild soap and water should be used as washing solution. Use a soft cloth as your washing gadget. It is a must to immediately dry your wood furnishings right after you wash them. This is done in order to prevent moisture build-up.
Watch out for damage

Cleaning is the best time to spot pieces of wood furniture that has damage. Early detection of damage can save you from major repairs or the possibility of abandoning important items in your home.
A house is a good place to stay if it is equipped with useful and well-taken cared home furnishings especially home materials made up of wood.

Hence, it is important that after you purchase such items, you are also knowledgeable on how to preserve it.

4 Reasons You’re Not Sleeping

June 19th, 2017 | Posted by Creativelysouthern in Health - (Comments Off on 4 Reasons You’re Not Sleeping)
sleepy cat

cat sleeping

Are you not sleeping well?  That depends on how much sleep you need.  Some people require less than others.  The amount of sleep you need is the ability to think clearly through the day, feel consistent energy throughout the day and not have anxiety or depression, or impatience which often accompanies insufficient sleep

 

Sleep is important to refresh the central nervous system.  Thus, the need for sleep is important for brain function.  Recent research reveals that the brain has a system of its own.  The glymphatic system elears  out international fluids  during sleep.

 

When you don’t get enough sleep, these fluids accumulate and impair functional ability and memory.  The day after a lack of sleep can feel lack of alertness, impaired memory function, slurred speech, mood swings and fatigue.

 

Long term sleep loss may lead to irreversible health conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular and circulatory illnesses and degenerative problems such as A and Parkinson’s.

 

So, what’s keeping you awake?

 

  1. Anxiety, stress, and other mental/ emotional discomforts?
  2. Physical causes such as pain and medical illness?
  3. Environmental factors. Like noise?
  4. Poor sleep habits?

 

What to do.

1, If it’s anxiety, see a professional and seek to manage stress.

 

  1. If it’s pain or illness, check with your physician.
  2. If it’s poor sleep habits, make your bedroom like a cave, turning off all              lights, digital devices at least 1 hour before bedtime.   
  3. Stick to a consistent sleep/ wake schedule.
  4. Good sleep is vital to how you look, feel and perform.
  5. Good sleep can improve your relationships, including your sex life,   decreased body pain, and weight control.

 

Too much sleep could lead to increased risk of obesity.

 

You are  reading this post looking for 5 ways to improve sleep as the title indicates, so stay with me because those are next.

 

What you can do to reclaim the sleep you need.

 

  1. Consuming large amounts of sugar can cause insulin resistance and inflammation.  Adding a soda to a fast-food meal like a burger and fries is a perfect recipe for not sleeping.  Go for the greens, fruits and vegetables.  A recent study recommended lowering salt intake can reduce midnight bathroom calls.
  2. Chronic pain makes it difficult to stay asleep at night.  Insomnia can lower your pain tolerance.  Talk to your doctor about ways to relieve pain without drugs.  You can start by using a heating pad, an ice pack, acupuncture, or drinking tart cherry juice twice a day.
  3. Research says sleep medicines just provide an extra 84 minutes of sleep.  Add that to the fact that you still may not feel refreshed.  Sleep med.s can have dangerous side effects such as addiction,  ,or falling.  The doctor may prescribe them on a short-term basis if the patient is going through a major life crisis.

            You might try Melatonin in small doses.

  1. Certain medications tend to keep you awake, such as beta blockers

            f or hypertension, Propranolol for asthma, Corticosteroids,        SSL antidepressants can cause sleepless nights.

 

  1.  If you have sleep apnea, which is interfering with your sleep.  You’ll feel especially tired during the day.  Once diagnosed, it is treated using a CPAP machine.  Weight loss can improve the situation..

Insomnia causes nighttime to feel endless and exhausting.  Expert advice is to turn off all digital devices, keep the bedroom dark and cool, avoid alcohol and caffeine.   These - methods are commonly used.

However, insomnia  that does not respond and continues  interrupting,  sleep needs  different types of treatment from  those listed  above.

Are you suffering too much stress?

Natural Ways to Reduce Stress

Often people suffering from anxiety want a natural way to reduce stress. They don’t want to use pharmaceutical drugs for treatment due to their considerable side effects.

Here are five natural ways to reduce stress.

  1. Relaxation techniques

-        Deep breathing or breathing exercises. With this method you consciously pay attention to your breathing. Begin by slowing your breathing and focusing on taking regular, deep breaths.

-        Aromatherapy, is a process where you use essential oils to promote relaxation.

-        Meditation, which is a technique where the mind stops focusing on stress and instead focuses inward towards calmness.

-        Emotional freedom technique. With this form of therapy, you locate and tap pressure points your body.

  1. Stretching and exercising

-        Cardio exercises, helping you release good endorphins to relieve stress.

-        Strength training with weights or body weight.

-        -        Walking. A 2D or 30-minute walk around the block can help you get your emotions in control.

  -        Yoga, an exercise that is also a relaxation technique. It gives you the coping skills you need to combat stress.

 -        Tai chi, which is a form of low-impact, weight-bearing, and aerobic exercise that began as a martial art.

  1. Nutrition changes-        Eat a healthy, balanced diet to help build up the immune system and lowering blood pressure.

-        Drink soothing herbal teas.

-        Use natural herbs.

-        Don’t skip meals.

-        Eliminate mindless eating.

-        Steer clear of simple carbs like candy and sweets.

         Activities that enrich your daily life

-        Attend comedy shows or watching comic movies. Laughter is a tremendous stress reliever.

-        Listen to your favorite music. Classical music has been shown to soothe emotions. Dance, sing and have fun.

-        Volunteer. Give your time helping others.

           Just don’t fill your calendar to overflowing.

-        Take a day at the spa. Give yourself permission to get a spa treatment to help relax your muscles.

-        Read a good book. Not a book you need to read but one that is purely for enjoyment.

-        Express yourself with art.  

      Find hobbies you enjoy and that keep your hands and mind busy.

-        Take up gardening. Plant flowers or vegetables. Tending plants can be a peaceful way to put your mind at ease.

-        Take a soothing bath. Light candles. Add calming bath beads like lavender or chamomile.

        Put on an eye mask and just relax.

-        Watch the sunset. Or sunrise.

-        Play like a kid or play with your kids. Let go. Run. Giggle. Just be silly.

-        Say “no”. You don’t have to do everything for everyone all the time. Your family can take care of themselves occasionally.

Socialization to get rid of stress

Be around friends (the right friends).

Call or spend time with them when you feel stress overwhelming you-     

Get out of the house if the stress is there. Go to a movie or a new restaurant.

-        Spend time doing things you enjoy like taking a walk in nature or visiting a museum.

Take a break now and then. Spend time alone when you need to. Find other ways that help you relieve stress.

You can fight stress in natural ways without the use of pharmaceutical remedies that may have harmful or unwanted side effects..

Pharmaceutical Remedies and Their Potential Side Effects

Sometimes a natural approach to relieving stress isn’t enough. You’ve tried everything.

The next option is to talk to your doctor about the pharmaceutical remedies available to you and their possible side effects.

There are several different medications available for controlling anxiety and stress.

What is PLR and how do you use it? Have you ever gotten in a pinch with writing your blog post? It is due and you don”t know how you can fit it into your schedule. I know this is sometimes a problem for me. Unless you have a different answer, I have the solution to rescue yourself quickly. Look into using PLR content. Just in case you are not familiar with it, let me explain what it is and how to use it. It is content that has been prepared in a user friendly format. Because you pay for it, you can rebrand it, modify it or put your own name on it. You can explore a number of topics to choose from. From time to time certain packages are on sale. To explore what is available, use the following link: https://diyplr.com/bundles/aff/go/catherineczajkowski996/?i=350 2. You’ll Gain Repeat Traffic Visitors that have been to your site and enjoyed what they saw are more likely to return. They also are more inclined to subscribe to your blog or email list. 3. More Qualified Leads Consistent content leads to more subscribers and better lead capture results. Once you have an email address, you can then begin to nurture that potential customer with consistent content via your email newsletter. 4. Better Search Engine Results Search engines, like Google, pay more attention to websites that consistently publish relevant content. Your site will be indexed more frequently if you’re publishing content on a regular basis. This, of course, leads to more organic traffic. 5. Consistent Content Builds Relationships and Strengthens Your Brand Think of a piece of content as a conversation. It’s difficult to build a relationship with a single conversation. Relationships are built over time and so is your brand. It takes time for prospects to get to know who you are and what your business is about. Consistent content and a consistent message spread across a few well-chosen marketing channels can help you forge customer relationships and strengthen your brand. Then go make easy work out of consistent content creation and reap the benefits! Here’s a quick before-the-weekend heads up that the Email List Secrets package offer is going to expire very soon! Email marketing is my FAVE online marketing topic…and for darned good reason. An email list is the single most lucrative asset you can build for your business. Even if you grow a social media following, buy ads or run a successful affiliate program, EVERYTHING always comes back to the list. It’s like your virtual cash machine. No joke ! Anyway, as you know by now, Aurelius always puts together complete product funnels that are ready for you to launch a product quickly…OR take the bits and pieces and incorporate everything into your content marketing or existing products. At under $10, this is a no brainer…tons of versatile quality content that’s ready to roll.

He has a list of 80,000 subscribers…so he knows a thing or two about list building and you get to tap into that knowledge.

Where do I even start with email marketing? Yeah! You want to do email marketing! The best place to start is always with your audience. Do your research, find out what information they want from you – then create an opt-in (or freebie they can give in exchange for email address) that they’ll love and start building your list. 2. How often should I email subscribers? This really depends on what you hope to achieve. I would recommend writing at least once a week, and no more than three times a week. You want to stay current, but you don’t want to overwhelm anyone. 3. I want to engage more with my clients while still working smarter, any ideas? This is exactly why email marketing was created. Email allows you a very, very unique opportunity to continuously engage with your clientele without doing a whole lot more work. An easy way to get started is to build a backlog of evergreen content and set it up to send out once a week – this way even if you don’t have time to send a regular broadcast something still goes out to your list. 4.

Is it intuitive to use? Will it incentives you to send your weekly broadcasts, or will you put it off cause you hate using it? Find one that comes with the functionality that will foster growth later on AND that you understand, enjoy, and are excited about. 5. I hear people talk about funnels, what’s a funnel? A funnel is the journey you want to lead your buyers on as they go from ‘Never hear of you’ to ‘I want everything you got’. The best place to get started with your funnel is to think about what your readers want to know before buying from you, and how can you get to know THEM in the process. Then, outline and write each email to bring your reader along on that journey. h
