No You DI' int.

So you have been working hard at your goals, you feel good, you look good, you've been exercising hardcore, you dress up go to a party and nobody gives you the double take. nobody compliments you, in fact you receive a 'oh you look fat in that dress'...ohhhh say WHAT? hell no that didn't just happen right? Bam! you suddenly feel miserable, start eating like a food junkie, and you give up on your goals thinking that nothing will change anyways so you might as well continue the way things were.

So what happened in this story folks? As humans we ALL like compliments we ALL appreciate them despite feeling shy or humble it still makes one feel good internally. It's humanistic nature. However, the problem with society is that WE ARE ALL EXPECTING TO MUCH. Say to yourself if you LOOK good, you FEEL good, then so be it. no compliment from no man or woman should have to make you feel great about yourself.

So say for example you're working out and you've lost five pounds. Five pounds of weight loss equals those five self compliments that you've earned! Screw the empty compliments and keep on forward with your weight lost goals. Fact of the matter is, who knows if you're at some club by the end of the night some joe shmoe gives you his number and tells you that you look great could be just be a fat lie to 'get that little something extra'.

Instead save yourself the trouble and start complimenting yourself. Look how far you've fought to get where you are, to achieve what was unachievable to begin with. Be proud of yourself, how you look, how you feel, and what you've accomplished in life. Be your own self motivational speaker because in the end feeling bad or good depends on you.

Stay Committed!!

A billion people living with a billion commitments.

Commitments bear a great deal of responsibility and decision making. We all have them but how many of us follow through? Committed to work, exercise, having a social life, it all gets tedious and gruesomely tiring but we gotta go with the grind. it allows for better relationships, good organizational skills, and good feelings of accomplishments. For example, I am a workaholic. I love what I do, especially when I am getting paid overtime for it. Would I normally pass up the chance to say 'no' to OT??....hellz to the no

....but in this case I did.

I had made an appointment with an individual and although it might have been the least significant priority on my list I kept the appointment instead of cancelling. To the individual it was important, to me I felt like I had missed my cash flow and had envisioned moths flying out of my empty pockets. Regardless the individual was impressed and happy, I had a good time and learned good things. In the long run it was well worth it.

We all have commitments but keeping them in check is another. Stop cancelling and putting off certain responsibilities because you 'don't feel like it' or you'd rather be doing such and such. Stay committed, keep your promises, and follow through 100% because these commitments will give you positive results in the long run.

stay dedicated y 'all! woot!

Play Nice

Alright, I am not going to lie...and i'll say this right now people are definitely scrooges around this time of year. People are more stressed, in a rush, and in more of a 'curs-able' mood' I have a real tolerance for ignorance but who am I to we all never had that "i hope you get out of that car so I can ninja chop your ass" thought.

Come on' people tis the season to be kind, sharing, thoughtful, and downright respectful. I mean if you can't do it during any other time of year..THIS WOULD BE THE TIME. If you're going to be an asshole as a full time job at least do it during May, June, or July where the season is nice and nobody gives a shit.

But December....oh boy December is cold, people are stressed because they have to spend more money, more effort to gather the family and so on. So there's my rant..moral of the story ladies and gentlemen? the next time you're rude to someone...they could likely kick your wait sorry moral of the story...always be nice to one another, whats the point in being Mr. mc'scrooge, we at least owe that much to one another ;)
