Good Day! How are you doing? I hope that you well and oh so good.

Good Day! How are you doing? I hope that you well and oh so good. Just a reminder that today in fact is the 30th of July 2008 and that of course means that it is the mid week and what I would like to think as wacky Wednesday edition of the Morning Cruise… ooh so we smack in the middle I’m loving it must say that so far my morning has been pretty good I didn’t have to stress about the train being late, getting to work on time or even waking up and wanting to go to bed for some more sleep…

Tip of the Day:

A day off from work should mean a day that is unlike all other days of the week. Unfortunately, with technology and persistent bad habits, people have lost the art of truly enjoying a day off as it just seems to be a continuation of their every day routine. Here are some tips to help you appreciate your day off on a whole new level…


1. Disconnect from work - On your day off, make it a point to shut everything from your job completely. You will truly appreciate the benefits of it when you get back to work afterwards.


2. Stay away from routine - On your day off, don’t do the same things that you do every day. For example, don’t wake up at the same time, or have the same breakfast or do the same activities that you would do on a regular day. Your day off needs to be a completely unique day, far different than anything remotely similar to your routine. If you do the same things you always do, you will only feel like it’s the same thing over and over, and you will not appreciate or embrace your day off in the same way.


3. Remain composed - Make this a rule: on your day off, do not get angry, mad, stressed, or annoyed no matter what. We deal with enough of these emotions during the week, let’s not give them any more time during “our day”. The bottom line after all, is how you feel, and if you go through these emotions on your day off, you will not have an ideal day that is all about making you feel better. Stay away from negativity and don’t let things get to you on that specific day. You can deal with it however you may want on a regular day, but on your day off, make sure that you are 100% happy and positive.


4. Get some fresh air - Being in nature is very good therapy to release all kinds of stress and anxiety. Your day off shouldn’t be spent in front of a TV or a computer. You probably do enough of that during the week.


5. Treat yourself - Your day off should in fact be rewarding. So this is the ideal time to spoil yourself a little. Do something nice for yourself, such as getting a massage, go shopping, eat at your favorite restaurant, and the likes. When you associate your day off with a reward, regardless of what it may be, you will not only look forward to your day off, but you will increase your appreciation of it. This is what we ultimately want to truly enjoy a day off.


6. Take your time - Whatever it is that you do, such as taking a walk in the park or treating yourself with a little shopping, just take ample time to enjoy yourself and enjoy the experience.


7. Spend it with people you care about - As we work during the week, we rarely have the time to spend it with people we love. This is why you should spend your day off doing activities with the people that mean a lot in your life. This will bring meaningful joy to what you are doing, and make it not only even more rewarding, but something that you can look forward to during the week. At the end of the day, surrounding ourselves with love is what we all seek for, so this can truly ensure that you have the very best day off you can possibly think of.

Good Day! How are you doing? I hope that you well and oh so good. If you thinking mmm what day is it today’s date …Today is the 29th of July 2008 and that of course means that it is the Tuesday edition of the Morning Cruise…So yesterday I spoke about the good and bad thing about getting paid…so today I want to know from you if you got paid have you done anything in particular to spoil, pamper or even treat yourself…I think it’s important to just do something for yourself…I know times are tough, but even if its something small such as your favourite chocolate or buying you something that you’ve been yearning for months I think you should get it because my theory is that it kinda keeps you going for the next month until the next pay check…If you that kinda person or even if you not then call me tell what you do to spoil or treat yourself if you get paid… even if you a pensioner I’m sure you have your favourite item that you just love… you can call because this of course is your station after all…

Moving onto today’s show we had all the usuals such as you’re Word of the Day, your SA Q&A, and you’re Tip of the Day.

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips and I’m actually exited about today’s tips, and we talking about accepting yourself…accepting who you are…Instead of looking and focusing on all of the negative things, find and focus on all the good qualities you possess…

1. Make a list of all the bad qualities you have and of all the good qualities you have and compare. If the "con" list is longer, find a way to spin some of the qualities and to turn them into something positive. For instance, if you think that you're too blunt, put a spin on it--you're honest and don't mince words! Usually the bad list is longer because of your own insecurities.

2. Every time you look yourself in the mirror call out something good about yourself. Your thoughts have incredible power to help you change your way of thinking.

3. Instead of feeling bad about yourself, every single day do something to correct your perceived flaws. If you have a problem with your weight, try exercising. Style? Try a makeover! There is a solution to every problem if you're willing to make the effort.

4. Tell yourself every day that you are a beautiful and unique person.And soon that person that you extremely dislike so much will transform into a extremely beautiful and remarkable person.

Word of the Day:


EQUIVOCAL - unclear in meaning or intention; ambiguous

Trivial Question:

Q: Name the Cape Town delicacy which is known as the hotdog is of New York?
A: Gatsby

Tip of the Day:


A lot of people cannot handle confrontation and start to shake, they lose control of their voice pitch, and they want to hit out and cannot control their thoughts properly. It can be frustrating when someone is putting us down and you can’t argue back as you have got a touch of confrontation jitters. …So I’m wasting no time here are those very tips…Take a deep breath just before the confrontation - This lowers your heartbeat and blood pressure.

*Breathe a little slower, again - this lowers your heartbeat and lowers the amount of adrenaline running through your body.

*Take 5 minutes, if you can - and quickly rehearse whatyou are going to say to someone. Make key points of your argument.

*Get to know what triggers your anger and prepare a newresponse to that trigger - By doing this you are aware of the buttons people can push to elicit a certain response. When you know your own triggers it less likely that someone can push the buttons as you are prepared.

* Make the person aware of how confrontational they are being - Saying something like ‘why are you shouting at me?’, ‘Why areyou being so aggressive’. This turns the energy back on the personand lets them look at themselves for a minute, this might calm them down as a lot of people get lost in the moment and don’t realise theyare being aggressive.

* Another way is to turn all the attention back on theperson you are arguing with - ‘You seem really angry about that!’; ‘You look as if you’re really pissed off?’ Again thiscan have the same affect of point 5.

* Don’t get sucked into their arguments - The purpose of an argumentis to manipulate you into losing the argument thereby showing the other person they have won and they are superior. If you don’t get sucked in there is no argument to win, and you come out looking the better person.

1. Shop around before you buy as prices can vary dramatically between stores.

2. Always check the stores refund policy before you buy – if you are buying a gift - tell them.

3. Ask if they will give a refund if it is unwanted or unsuitable? If so, return purchases promptly.

4. Always keep your receipts as proof of purchase - they may be required if your purchases need to be exchanged or refunded.

5. Examine goods as soon as possible after purchase as faults should be reported to the store quickly.
6. Guarantees usually begin on the day you buy the item – if you are buying a gift the store may delay the start of a guarantee – Ask them!
7. Think carefully before buying an extended warranty for electrical goods – it may not be worth the money and cost more than a replacement item or any likely future repairs.

Tip of the Day:


So I’ve got your tips and I’m actually exited about today’s tips, because I have already found myself in a rut, not being very motivated at times…so I hope that the next time you need to feel a little better, not feeling to good then take these five easy tips into account…

1. Decide On Your Goals And Write Them Down - To get motivated, you need to know what you're aiming to achieve, so plan short, medium and long term goals. The goals you choose need to be realistic and achievable. Write your goals down and place them in a spot where they're clearly visible and remember to re-visit them as often as possible.Tell somebody else about your goals and dreams. Verbalizing and visualizing your goals makes them feel real.


2. Don't Let Your Feelings Get In The Way - We don't always wake up every morning with the exuberance we would like, particularly when there's no time-card to be punched. People with work from home businesses require a level of self motivation that those in the regular work force can't even begin to imagine.Feelings are only that - feelings. They DON'T run your life!Remember the old song "Some Days Are Diamonds, Some Days Are Stone?" Life is a bit like that; some days you'll wish you never got out of bed, others you'll power through your day.


3. Stop Procrastinating - Procrastination kills self motivation, but procrastination can be overcome with a well-structured daily schedule. People with work from home businesses, particularly Internet businesses, can find it difficult to set up a daily schedule because every day is different. The aim is to prioritize your tasks, giving the highest priority to those activities that will make you money.


4. Reward Yourself - Reward yourself with a night off and watch the latest release DVD, or go to the park with the kids. If you've had a financial gain, play a round of golf or have your hair done - it will make you feel great. Here's a self-motivation suggestion from a friend who works for himself: "I like to write down my to-do list and award myself a large red tick as I complete each item. It may sound silly, but those big red ticks help give me a feeling of achievement."


5. Have Fun - Learning to enjoy yourself while you work your home based business keeps you enthusiastic and motivated, and staying enthusiastic and motivated helps you keep your stress levels under control.Self motivation is its own reward and a jewel in the cap of your new-found freedom in successfully operating your very own work from home business.

Quote of the Day:

Bertrand Russell - The only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation

Hello hello, how we doing today? I hope you doing fantastic if you not you best start changing that mood it's not worth it!! When you waste time on what you don't have you waste time on what you do have.... Now talking about wasting, today I spoke about saving. That topic came up after I realised that pay day is around the corner. Excitement excitment!! I’m almost certain a couple of hundreds are just as excited.. just counting down the days before the 25th. But tell me why is it that we get so over-joyed about pay day only to find ourselves feeling like the rainy weather only two weeks after pay day because we over treat ourselves ………and yes …..some over do it. Treating yourself is not a problem of .. but you not a millionare I suggest you consider the secret in life called SAVING.


We got to learn to save we can’t always be spontanous or adventurous..living on the edge as some might put it…. at the end of the day when the money isn’t there we walk around with our lips half sweeping the floor blaming the government because WE CAN’T SAVE.


Before I go on and on, I'll save room for what the Morning Cruise had going on on the Wonderful Wednesday Edition. We had the Word of the Day, S.A Trivia, Tips, interesting interviews as well as a documentary and not forgetting the Quote Of The Day.


WORD OF THE DAY


euphonious \yoo-FOH-nee-uhs\ - Pleasing or sweet in sound; smooth-sounding.


S.A TRIVIA QUESTION


Q. What region in the Western Cape is known for its abundance of blue skies, white sand beaches, rolling oceans, dramatic mountain scenery, indigenous fynbos and ostrich antics


A. The Garden Route and Klein Karoo


TIPS OF THE DAY

How To Be A Gentlemen


1. Be polite to everyone. Always be aware of how you can help people. Offer to help an old or pregnant person get their grocery bags to the car. Even if someone is being a rude, be polite and respectful.


2. Don't swear. Ever. Growl wordlessly or calm yourself down.


3. Give girls a little extra respect. This doesn’t mean put every girl on a pedestal but rather do them little favors, like giving up your seat on the bus even though they're not carrying anything heavy.


4. Don't talk about yourself much.Get a basic idea of what's going on in music, sports, and politics.


5. Guys must realise how threatening the world is for girls: they're automatically targets at night or in bad neighborhoods men are more safer in that regard. So walk her to her door if at all possible it doesn't matter how strong she actually is.


6. If you have a girlfriend, remember to keep doing nice things for her. If she's carrying something, pick it up when she puts it down. Show up with a card or a flower. Expensive and showy doesn't matter, it's the effort. In fact, a rose and a heartfelt kiss will keep any girl happy for days.


7. There are some things you shouldn't talk to girls about. These include how hot other girls are, or anything at all of that nature. If she's not in to sports or video games, you can say a few things but then move on to something she's in to.It's fine to talk about that stuff with your guy friends, but a gentleman doesn't do that.


8. A true gentleman maintains all of these steps even when around his guy friends.


We also featured:

Just after the 10:30 headlines we played a documentary produced by Rupert Cook about Aids in Somaliland...Great stuff


Then we were joined by Dr Retha Scheepers from Stellenbosch University who has joined forces with Syracuse University in New York to put together a hands on entrepreneurial programme/initiative where the students go out using the knowledge they have to help empower previously disadvantaged entrepreneurs. If you want to know more about this initiative, check out their website at www.sun/eesa.ac.za.



Lastly we interviewed Suzette Farmer from "knit a jersey for an orphan" project at the Simon's Town Museum. This project is to create awareness around HIV/AIDS which runs until November. On the 1st December 2008, World Aids Day they'll be doing the handing over of the jerseys to an HIV/AIDS charity and others.

TIP OF THE DAY

How To Be A Lady


Step1
Be polite.A lady, in all her wisdom, should keep a cool head under pressure and outwit her adversaries with meaningful, well chosen words.

Step2
Maintain a well groomed appearance. While women should not feel that they need to dress up every day, grooming is a sign to the outside world that a woman is ladylike. Instead of throwing on tattered sweats, choose a nicely fitted jogging suit to run errands. Instead of leaving the house with no make-up, try a quick 5-minute face in the morning. Carry your sense of the ladylike throughout your wardrobe.

Step3
Educate yourself. Today's "lady" should be educated and able to hold up her end of a conversation. By staying on top of world events and keeping your mind active through reading and meaningful television viewing.

Step4
Be independent. The contemporary woman is considered a lady if she can stand on her own two feet. An independent woman is the pinnacle of ladylike.


Step5
Nurture kindness.Whether a woman is kind to her parents, friends, lovers or the community at large, hardly any other characteristic is as valuable and contagious.



We also featured:

A interview with Beverley Whitehead and Veronica Roystons from Career Story, they are career counsellors and consultants. They spoke to us about how one could steer down a decisive career path. If you want to know about their services, check out their website: www.careerstory.co.za




We also featured a documentary done by Martine de Souza, this documentary was all about taking film making to rural communities in Africa.....Some interesting stuff.


Lastly we interviewed Sarah Scarth from the SPCA who spoke to us a worry occurence concerning people buying stolen dogs. This is a criminal offence. If you have any info perhaps you know someone selling stolen dogs or maybe you suspect a dog you recently bought could a stolen dog, don't hesitate to call the SPCA on 021- 700 41 59

So I’ve got your tips and I’m actually exited about today’s tips not sure why, but I am… We talking ways to say what you mean with out being rude…now this can be difficult I know I sometimes found myself having to say something to someone, but not knowing how exactly and I know you have too so that’s why the tips…and here they are…ways to say what you mean with out being rude...


*If you have a habit of "faking it" or "making nice," Being reasonably assertive will feel strange for you.

*It's okay to put your best foot forward - just not a "false front."

*Keep checking back with yourself to make sure you're not saying what you think they want to hear.

*Put yourself in your listeners shoes. If someone said what you were going to say to you, would you think they were being mean?

*When you say what you mean, be sure you mean what you say. If you make a strong claim and back down at the first sign of resistance, your words will lose their power and impact.

3. Listen to relaxing, uplifting music. Watch funny comedies that make you laugh.

4. Watch your thoughts. Whenever you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, start thinking of pleasant things.

6. Each day do something good for yourself. It can be something small, such buying a book, eating something you love, watching you favorite program on TV, going to a movie, or just having a stroll on the beach.

7. Each day do at least one act to make others happy. This can be a kind word, helping your colleagues, stopping your car at the crossroad to let people cross, giving your seat in a bus to someone else, or giving a small present to someone you love.

Tips of the Day:

So I’ve got your tips and I’m actually exited I have to admit…It’s normal to be mad at the person who died. They left. It is normal to feel alone. You probably are, but, you must continue to find your way on earth without them.

1. Yell, scream, cry, and hit a pillow.

2. Give yourself permission to be angry and stop fighting yourself.

3. Keep a journal. Write down each time you feel angry. What triggered the thought? How long did you feel angry for? What did you do about it and why? After a weeks worth of keeping the journal, can you find a pattern?

4. Channel your negative energy through something positive. For some it might be running the energy out. Others might do better with painting. Others might sing, write music etc.

5. Treat yourself kindly. Nurture your body. Eat healthy foods. Take a warm bath. It is never improper to care for oneself.

6. Avoid the quick fix. Alcohol, and other mind-altering drugs in the moment, might give your brain the chance to relax, but after the initial high, the crash will bring you to a lower place.

7. Accept help when offered. Every person needs help every once and a while, and you may even do another person a favor by allowing him or her to assist someone in need. If no one offers help, seek it out.

8. Try to forgive yourself. You may not be ready. You may never feel completely ready, but explore the possibilities of forgiveness.

9. Stop trying to model yourself after your friends and family. No two people grieve in the same way.

3. Eliminate physical barriers or move to a different area so that the barriers do not get in the way of your listening.

I also hope that you relaxed and chilled out too, so that you can start this week a fresh with a positive perspective…turning over a new leave…for me this week I decided to… just have fun at all costs…

Moving onto today’s show we had all the usuals such as you’re Word of the Day, your SA Q&A, and you’re Tip of the Day.

Word of the Day:

SEGUE - To proceed without interruption; to make a smooth transition

Trivial Question:

Q: Name the renowned SA boxer known as the small fighter with a big heart?
A: Baby Jake" Matlala

Tip of the Day:

I’ve got your tips on techniques you can use to defuse conflicts and enhance communication…So here are some tips on doing so…

1. Criticize the issue or behavior, not the person. By dealing with the issue or the behavior, you avoid attacking the other person. If you are “arguing” with your teen about a curfew, stick to the issue of the curfew or to his/her behavior of breaking curfew. Don’t dredge up all of past
mistakes or call the person a “fool who can’t do anything right.” That is attacking the person. It will damage his/her self-esteem and will only create barriers.

2. Realize that each person has worth. It is almost impossible to practice active or reflective listening if you dismiss the speaker as inferior or worthless. You don’t have to agree with the person, but it is crucial that you respect his/her right to a different opinion and acknowledge his/her sense of value.

3. Avoid absolutes - right/wrong, bad/good. Phrases like “you always” or “you never” are absolutes that impede communication. This is not to say there aren’t situations that are right or wrong, bad or good, but in an argument most right/wrong or bad/ good situations are merely exaggerations and the truth is somewhere in between.

4. Send “I feel” messages instead of “you” messages. When you say, “You don’t know what you’re talking about,” you are sending a “you” message. An “I” message would be, “I don’t understand what you’re trying to say.” The “you” message lays blame on the speaker. The “I” message clarifies your concerns. The “I” message is concerned with the issue. The “you” message attacks the person.

5. Engage your brain and suspend your emotions. The ultimate goal is to turn the verbal conflict into a discussion. Instead of letting your emotions take over, ask yourself, “How can I help solve this problem? What solution is best for both of us? What can we change? You need to control your emotions for the sake of the issue. Listen actively and nonjudgmental.

Quote of the Day:

Henry Ford - Enthusiasm generates powers. It generates boldness, courage; kindles confidence, overcomes doubts. It creates endless energy, the source of all accomplishment

Need to break out of a bad mood? Try these tips for cheering yourself up as I’ve good 6 mood busters…


1. Think Fast - Rapid-fire thinking makes people feel happier and more energetic, confident and creative—even if they are thinking about something sad. Stuck in a negative groove? Try this mental gymnastic: Quickly come up with five solutions to your problem—good, bad or in between, just do it fast.

2. Shake a Leg - Aerobic exercise is the single best way [to escape] a bad mood and increase your energy—and all it takes is ten minutes.

3. Act Extroverted - Feeling grumpy or gloomy? Then get out and act as if you're on top of the world! Being gregarious, assertive or adventurous can actually improve your mood—even if you're shy. To see if acting like an extrovert can turn your frown around, smile at strangers, talk to neighbors, voice an opinion during a discussion or ask a question in a meeting at work.

4. Give Yourself a Treat - When little annoyances darken your day, chase the cloud away with a little retail therapy. Even the tiniest treat may pick up your mood.

5. Check In with a Cheery Friend - Moods are contagious. So being around someone with a sunny disposition or who makes you laugh may give you an attitude adjustment. But don't use a get-together for a gripe session. This will only reinforce your bad feeling—and drag your friend down.

6. Lend a Helping Hand - Random acts of kindness, such as giving money to a homeless person, bringing soup to a sick neighbor or making photocopies for a time-pressed co-worker, can make you feel happier.Giving makes you feel good yourself, particularly when other people appreciate your efforts.

Trivial Question:

Tip of the Day:

A prosperous life doesn’t mean having a lot of money only. If you want to be truly prosperous, you have to transform your mind set in a major way. You have to think about abundance rather than thinking about lack of it. You have to shift a lot of levels higher in all spheres of your life. The following 10 tips will help you do that...

1. Indulge in your passion - When you indulge in things that you are passionate about, you will feel happy and satisfied. When you feel happy, you emit positive vibrations and hence attract things that are of the same frequency as yours.

2. Affirm You Always Have More Than Enough - The more you pay attention to lack of things in your life, the more you will attract it. You can stop this by telling yourself that you have enough of what you need.

3. Act - Though you need not work towards attaining abundance, but doing so wont harm you in any manner. Rather it will be quicken your want for abundance. So don’t just sit around expecting circumstances to change – take control and change them yourself!

4. Be thankful and appreciative - If you are appreciative you will always look at the positive aspect of anything. You will feel more abundant and be thankful for the same. Hence never forget to appreciate and be thankful for whatever life has given you.

5. Love - One of the most powerful and transformational forces is love. It can be a great healer if you are in pain, can bring you abundance and motive you to do things which you have never done earlier.

6. Improve your Self-Image - What you believe in will influence a lot on what you experience in your day to day life. If you don’t feel the abundance, you will never be able to attract it. Hence start boosting the image you have about yourself and constantly remind yourself that you deserve all the happiness in this world.

7. Create Space - If you jam up your life with negative things, there will be no room to store whatever good comes up in your life. Hence, make room for good things to come. Shed the negative inhibitions you have nurtured till now. Shun those painful emotional feelings and forget the issues you have. Purify yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

8. Change Your Beliefs - Apart from poor self esteem, you may be nourishing other kind of negative belief which limit you even further from receiving any prosperity. This could be your belief that you have to toil hard to get money or that rich people are haughty and unhelpful or you may feel that a lot of wealth is a burden.

9. Observe The Abundance You Have Around You - Whatever you focus on grows. This is true even for prosperity. Hence always seek abundance wherever you go. While you shop, notice the abundance of the merchandise around you.

10. Be Positive - If you are positive, the thoughts you have are positive and emotions you will are positive, then for sure you will attract positive conditions into your life. If you want to be prosperous, this is a way that will work for sure. Negative thinking is a tendency to focus on the negative aspects of life. But even that is an opportunity in disguise.

Q: In what year did the first heart transplant take place?
A: 1967

Tip of the Day:



Holding anger, resentment and hatred toward another injures your mind and heart; therefore, it follows that releasing those emotions through forgiveness would bring healing. Here are some points to consider about forgiveness…


1. Forgiveness is for people, not despicable actions. Some actions are unthinkably horrible and absolutely unforgivable. Human beings can be worthy of forgiveness, even if their actions are not.


2. Forgiveness does not absolve the wrongdoer of the wrongdoing. Forgiving someone is merely the decision to release the pain, fear and anger from your own mind and return to love.


3. Forgiving someone does not imply approval of their behavior or wrongdoing nor does it assume that they will not do harm again in the future.


4. Put your energy into looking for another way to get your positive goals met than through the experience that has hurt you. Instead of mentally replaying your hurt seek out new ways to get what you want.


5. Remember that a life well lived is your best revenge. Instead of focusing on your wounded feelings, and thereby giving the person who caused you pain power over you, learn to look for the love, beauty and kindness around you. Forgiveness is about personal power.


6. Amend your grievance story to remind you of the heroic choice to forgive

Tip of the Day:
The seven tips here is to help you on the process and not give up until you succeed...

1. Set up your goal and know why you want it. You need to know where you are going and why you go there. No meaning or motivation will be in your mind if you don't. Also, you need the time frame for your goal so that we do not wander aimlessly.

2. Know what we have to do in order to achieve it.. Write down a yearly, monthly and daily plan for your implementation and pursue it. You won't achieve anything if our plan is in the air.

3. Mingle with the achievers. Surround yourselves with the person who has his own goal. If you can not immediately find real people, you may use books, tapes, CD or movie as your reference for success.

4. Avoid talking to negative sources of comments. Refuse to accept the opinions that you can not do it. You will definitely hear sceptical remarks from many people especially the ones that are closed to you. In order to do not have those opinions affect our actions, avoid them.

5. Put all your heart when you take actions. Constant actions will form up your destiny. To master your destiny is to be good at what you are doing. And it will not happen if you do not do it with your whole heart.

6. Schedule your rest time. Life can be frustrated if you do not have your own time to refresh your mind. This is the time when you are clear from everything including the work you have done.

7. Remind yourself on the sweet fruits of your success. There are many ways to do it and visualization is one of the best. Visualize your success daily will enhance you possibilities. You can have your reminders posted on the wall that you can see often.

We may fall ill or suffer some setback that results in grief, anger, pain or fear. … So next time you find yourself in a situation think of the next 5 tips to over come a self pity party…

1. Own worst enemy
- You are definitely a self-saboteur if you are always having internal debates about what you want to do and why you should not be doing it.

2. Take your pick - We all need to know that we can choose our response. We live in an imperfect world where bad things sometimes happen to the nicest people. You can choose to be resentful or downhearted about a situation, or to accept it.

3. Are you a victim? - We all know people who feel victimised by life. They want you to feel sorry for them and take every available opportunity to tell you about their hardships, their ailments or their troubled relationships. Their negative mindset keeps them trapped.

4. Break away - Although we all experience tough times, we don't have to be broken by them, but this requires making positive choices. People who triumph over adversity would not sink into depression if confronted with the possibility of retrenchment. They would embrace the opportunity to start a new life. They are able to see something good in everyone. Such people overcome tragedy and use their experiences to uplift others or create dynamic changes in their own lives.

5. Get a grip on life - The challenge we face is to recognise and conquer the victim in us all. An occasional gripe about life is normal, but we need to guard against it becoming a habit.

Tip of the Day:


So I’ve got your tips and I’m actually exited about today’s tips not sure why, but I am…we looking at ways to control your emotions this can be difficult for some and really easy for others at the same time… So next time you find yourself in a situation think of the next 5 tips to over come and control those emotions…

1. CHANGE HOW YOU REACT TO A FEELING - Just because you have reacted in a certain way does not mean you must continue to do so.You can actually change your reaction any time you choose. How we react is based on how we perceive the occurrence.

2. NOTICE, ASSESS AND CHANGE - The first thing is to just notice how you are reacting to a given feeling. You can start by thinking about your reaction after the fact, then gradually as you become more aware of this, you will notice while you are reacting. After awhile, as you become more aware, you will find that you can easily notice your reactions right as they are coming up.

3. VALUES AND DESIRED LIFE - Look at your personal values when deciding how you would rather react. Ask yourself what reaction would better serve the values you want to live by? How would you rather behave in certain situations?

4. THIS IS CHANGE - You can eliminate the experience and results of your anger if you choose not to allow anger to be a part of your reaction in a given situation.

5. LEARN RATHER THAN DEFEND - Instead of going into a defensive mode and trying to protect or force your views, learn from the situation. Ask yourself what is really going on with that upset employee or co-worker.

Quote of the Day:

Thomas Jefferson - Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances

It’s time for me to love and leave you. You must have oh so super Thursday. Let’s chat again tomorrow…Much Love…Peace.
