Have You Helped Someone Today?

thinkingI was just sitting here thinking about what it would be like if just ONE PERSON helped someone else today.  Could you image what the world would be like if that happened. It would be the biggest chain reaction the world has ever seen. Just like in my book “The Pollyanna Effect”, about bouncing the ball of happiness around the world. You can get it by clicking here!

Zig Ziglar says: “Get What You Want By Helping Other People!”, ” You can have everything you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want!”

Zig Ziglar also says, In order to stay motivated, you have to do it every day. It’s like taking a bath.

There is nothing better than to have that happy feeling inside of you knowing you have helped someone else. When you help someone else it boosts your self esteem.  You feel more worthy of the good deeds you’ve done, and it gives others the feeling of trusting you more. You don’t have to know about everything or be the best at everything in order to give value to others.

So again, sitting here thinking today, I’m going to find someone to help today and start bouncing that ball of happiness and good will, around the world! How about you?question mark

Go Nuts For Cancer!

I receive emails from a Doctor on occasion, ‘Dr. Al Sears MD. A lot of what he has researched, and has to say about your body and cancer is very informative.
Here is one of his articles on eating walnuts for cancer prevention.walnuts
“I’ve also been telling my patients for years that a handful of walnuts a day is an excellent source of ALA … especially for cancer prevention.
Previous studies found that extract of omega-3 rich walnuts stopped the spread of breast cancer cells.
In another study, the walnut-sourced omega 3 supplementation given to mice bred to have breast cancer was able to prevent breast cancer from developing.
Now a new study reveals the cancer-fighting benefits of walnuts and omega-3 oils go beyond breast cancer.
The recent study, which looked at walnuts and colon cancer, showed that compounds in walnuts caused protective omega 3 fatty acids to congregate in the tumor cells of mice.
And the effect of these concentrated omega 3s was powerful. It reduced the inflammation of tumors and cut off their blood supply. In short, it slowed the growth of the tumors.

So, how do you get things back in balance?balance your life
First, return to the diet of our ancestors. You should eliminate or strictly limit your intake of sugar, grains and processed foods.
Civilizations and societies may have changed over the past 5,000 years, but our anatomy and physiology have not. And our bodies did not evolve to consume any of these foods.
Second, always opt for grass-fed beef and wild salmon for abundant natural sources of omega-3 oils.
Finally, as a crusader against one of America’s biggest killers, I recommend walnuts to my patients – because these incredible nuts contain a sizable amount of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).
And research from the latest study suggests walnuts – thanks to their high ALA content – may be a key ingredient in limiting tumor size.

The Eagle Changes To Survive, Will You?

This story I want to share today doesn’t have a lot to do with cancer, except for the fact that you do need to change your way of life. And,most importantly your thoughts, in order to beat the deadly beast, cancer! It’s a very inspiring story and I hope you enjoy it.

eagleThe Eagle

The eagle has the longest life span among birds. However when it ages into it‘s forties, it’s long and flexible talons can no longer grab prey, which serves as food. It’s long sharp beak becomes bent. The eagle has two choices, either die or go through a painful process of change that lasts 150 days.
This process requires that the eagle fly to a mountain top and sit on it’s nest. There the eagle knocks it’s beak against a rock until it can pluck it out. After plucking it out the eagle will wait there until a new beak grows back. Then it will pluck out it’s talons. When the new talons grow back, then the eagle will start plucking it’s old feathers out. AND after five months, the eagle takes it’s famous flight of rebirth and lives for another thirty years!

Why is all this change needed? The eagle changes to survive for a longer lifetime. We need to change for making our life a better place to live and become healthier.

In order to survive, we have to start a, change process. We sometimes need to get rid of old memories and old habits. We need to free ourselves from past burdens so we can take advantage of the present. We need to stop looking at life in a negative way, and start looking at it in a positive way.

Cancer Got You Down? Be Happy Now!

smiling sunCancer sure has a way to get you down. Make you feel like crap and be depressed. Don’t let it win! Be happy now!

Some people are waiting for that special moment to be happy. Waiting for the Cancer to be gone! Waiting for the perfect mate, waiting for the right job, waiting for the house to be paid off, waiting for the kids to finish college. If you keep waiting for the perfect moment to be happy, you will never be happy.

You have to be happy right now, in the present, then you will be happy in the future. Happiness is a mental habit, a mental attitude, and if it’s not learned and practiced in the present it will never be experienced.

Happiness cannot be waited upon until all problems are solved. Every time a problem is solved another one comes along. Life is a series of problems. If you’re to be happy at all, you must be happy in the here and now.

Abraham Lincoln quoted: “Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

We have let the little things make us unhappy for so long, it has become a habit to have frustrations, dissatisfaction’s and irritability. Things that make us that way are a blow to our self esteem, so we react as being unhappy.

You need to stop letting circumstances and other people dictate how you feel. Change your attitude, change your out look and change your feelings. Form the habit of reacting positively toward problems. Practice keeping a positive attitude. postiiveContinue to do this and you will be happy in the present and in the future. This worked wonders for me when I was battling breast cancer. I surrounded myself with happy people and, I AM a cancer survivor!!

Cancer Got You Down? Just Smile!

smileyCancer can do so many bad things to your body and mind; it is an all around destroyer. Don’t let it!! SMILE!!

I know this may sound silly to you, but your attitude definitely has an effect on cancer.

One of the best ways to boost your health, your mood, your longevity, and even your success is to Smile.

Smiles do a lot more than simply let the world know you’re happy. Studies suggest that smiling, forced or not, can have a positive effect on your mood, decrease stress levels, and even make everyone around you feel better.

We all have the right to choose our feelings, so choose happiness, choose to SMILE!

Choose to SMILE, build up your immune system, and BEAT CANCER!!!

Cancer! Are You Now Angry At The World?

angryThere are at least 50 negative emotions that people have.

One of the worst emotions you can feel is anger. Anger is one of the most powerful and destructive emotion you can inject on your body. If you keep your anger bottled up inside of you, it can destroy your health. If you let your anger out it can destroy every relationship you have with others.

Think of how you feel when your angry. Does it affect how you eat? Does it affect how you reason in everyday life? Does it affect how you think? The longer you stay angry, the more it will escalate, just like more wood fuels a fire. It will soon be out of control.

Nothing ever good comes from anger. It serves no purpose at all. Have you ever had someone cut you off in traffic or jump in front of you in a long line you’ve been waiting in? All of a sudden your anger flares. Rather than getting angry and ruining your health, just say to yourself, “I guess they are in a bigger hurry than I am!”

Your doctor tells you, “You have Cancer!” First I felt nothing, then sadness, then Anger! Why Me? Why Me Cancer?

You need to learn to detach yourself from the moment. Learn to starve your negative emotions, cut them right off at the beginning. Stop blaming others for your unhappiness. The Law of Attraction says that your conscious mind can only hold one thought at a time. Either a negative thought or a positive thought, but not both at the same time.

Take control of your negative emotions by thinking of only positive thoughts, you’ll start being more calm, relaxed, and have more clarity of your life and better health. Being angry just fuels the cancer inside of you.cancer ribbon

Stop being angry at everyone that cuts you off or says something to offend you. Stop being angry that you have Cancer. Stop being angry at the World! It can only make things worse.

For every minute you are angry, you loose sixty seconds of happiness! ‘Unknown author’

Are You Feeding Your Fear or Your Faith?

fearThere is a statement that says, “What we feed will grow”. If we feed on fear we will live a life controlled by fear, if we feed on faith we will live a life in love and faith. If you had or now have cancer, then you know, you cannot feed it.

What I mean by this is, Cancer loves to feed on stress! You need to stay as happy as possible and laugh a lot, cancer does not like laughter.

Fear is a deterrent that can hold you hostage and keep you from realizing your dreams. The presence of fear can serve as a self destructive force. It can reduce confidence in several of your everyday functions. The saying, “there’s nothing to fear but fear itself“, is absolutely true.

I believe everyone has had that moment when you wanted to do something but decided not to because of your fear.

For instance:
You Fail to start a business, because fear of failure stops you.
You Fail to put your best effort into something, because you fear that your effort won’t be enough to help you succeed.
You Fail to do what you’re most passionate about, as your afraid you will fail.

Imagine if you could overcome your fear and start doing things that you really wanted to do, instead of accepting things that fear stops you from doing. Would you be happier? Would you achieve more out of life? Say you wanted to start a business, but fear of doing so, causes the image in your mind of you failing. Replace that negative image with a positive image of you succeeding in the business.

You can do the same thing with cancer.  Replace the negative image of you getting sick and dying, with a positive image of you living a happy fulfilled life.  Not everyone is lucky enough to beat cancer, but it really does help to keep a great attitude.

Take one step at a time!step

Once you have conquered one of your fears, you will gain a new positive belief that you can conquer more fears. You will be amazed at what you can accomplish when you knock down your fears one by one. That is when you will start to truly enjoy your life to the fullest.

Faith is the victory in overcoming fear. Faith isn’t always about religion; it’s more about falling prey to false thoughts. If you take the time to feed your mind with positive thoughts, you will be able to conquer any challenges that life can offer.

wolfThere’s an old Native American story about a grandfather that is teaching an important life lesson to his grandson. The grandfather says: “I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is full of darkness; he is envious, resentful, fearful and deceitful.

The other wolf is full of light. He is loving, compassionate, generous, serene and truthful.”

The grandson asked his grandfather; “Which wolf will win?”

The grandfather replied, “The one I feed.”

Starve your fear, feed your life and you will find that you will become completely different all together. Then YOU can decide which one is better, Feeding your Fear or Feeding your Faith.
