The Secret Sauce That Will Get You to Goal!

 

 

Have you ever wondered why some athletes attain a higher level of success than others? Chances are that the champions we all admire as we watch their performance use mental rehearsals as part of their training process.

What is a mental rehearsal? Athletes imagine their game or event from their perspective as though they are actually competing. They mentally rehearse their performance by breaking it down into each tiny component and they fully engage all their senses while mentally performing. In this way they work on improving specific aspects of their performance. They see AND feel their success at completion of the rehearsal. The technique is now being used in all sorts of applications as people strive to better their performance. If you can imagine a scenario, you can mentally rehearse it to achieve the results you want.

Mental rehearsal can serve you well if you wish to form new and healthy lifestyle habits. Practice mental rehearsal if you want to motivate yourself to follow through on your good intentions and follow those healthy habits all the way to success.

For instance, if you want to exercise consistently, mental rehearsal can help you. Once you've chosen your activity, mentally rehearse what you will see, feel, hear, smell or taste as you take yourself through the routine. Put your senses into the mental image and really live the experience. The more you practice, the easier and more comfortable the process will become and each success will lead to another.

Think of a mental rehearsal as your secret success sauce!

 

 

 

A Guide for getting along with your husband, in the form of a letter to computer tech support:

A woman wrote to tech support, and their reply is a stroke of genius.

 

This young woman is no different from the rest of us; she is simply looking for an answer to her questions. How do you maintain a relationship? She wrote a letter to the tech support to find her answers. She sent the letter as a joke and only remembered about it when she suddenly received an email notification with a response. Here is what she initially wrote:

Dear Tech Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slowdown in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as: Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as: NBA 5.0, NFL 3.0 and Golf Clubs 4.1. Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and House cleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail. What can I do?

Signed,
Desperate

 

Tech Support finally answered as follows:

 

Dear Desperate,

First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Please enter command: I thought you loved me.html and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1. Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do, DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.)

In addition, please, do not attempt to re-install the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend: Cooking 3.0 and Hot Lingerie 7.7.

Good Luck!

 

Reduce Your Cancer Risk

The choices we make every day affect our chances of getting cancer.  Three factors that we control have a lot to do with our risk of developing this terrible disease.

 

How Much We Move

Be physically active every day in any way for 30 minutes or more.

 

How Much We Weigh

Aim to be a healthy weight throughout life.

 

What We Eat

Choose mostly plant foods, limit red meat and avoid processed meat.

 

Preventing Cancer

For the greatest protection, combine all three.

 

These guidelines form the simple, evidence-based message from the American Institute for Cancer Research (learn more at www.aicr.org).  Follow any one and you'll lower your risk.  Follow all three, and you'll afford yourself the greatest protection possible.  (And always remember -- do not use tobacco in any form.)

 

AICR experts estimate that overall, about 1/3 of cancers in the 1.5 million cancers that occur every year in the US could be prevented by following these guidelines.  For several specific types of cancer, following them could prevent even more cases.  Take control of your cancer risk!
