To your sensational success,

The Radically New, You!

Do look now.  There is awesomeness revolving around you.  Wouldn't you like to capture it and own it?  If you did, you'd be a radically new, you!  A radically, new you means that you chosen to replace boldacious for balking; dreaming for doing, and brimming for becoming.  Picture yourself being with unlimited potential, vibrant energy and an abundance of creativity.

If you can, this may be the most valuable snapshot you've ever taken.  Your belief in self; your energy level; and an uncompromising resolve to re-create, all coalesce into a radically, new you.  A "you" who chooses "leaps" over "bounds." A "you" who embraces the "ups" and releases the "downs."

You are never too old, to become radically new.  Each day, buildings which have been around for decades are remodeled to meet new regulations and reach new standards.  Isn't your life more valuable than a dwelling?

I thought so.
So where do you start?  Begin with creating the radically new you picture of you.   Next, get all the knowledge and tools that are needed for your "reconstruction" then go to work!


5 Fantastic Ways to Make the Best of 5 Minutes

1. Grab 5 file folders. Dedicate 1 minute per folder and recycle all papers that are not needed

2. Take a trash bag and target one junk drawer. Set a timer for 5 minutes and discard everything that needs to be thrown away.
3. Go through your clothes closet and choose 7 articles of clothing which you rarely, or no longer wear.  Put them in a donation bag and place it in your car. Drop it off at a charity on your next trip out.
4. Make an appointment. Make one of those appointments you've been meaning to make.  Do you need to see your child's teacher?  Your doctor?  Perhaps even your mechanic.  Take five minutes and make an appointment now. 
5. Clear off a counter top or surface.  If you're like most people, there is at least one area in your home or office that is "warehousing" mail, junk, or miscellaneous items.  Toss, or put these items where they belong.  You'll experience a refreshing ambiance of space and clarity of thought.
What Will Be?  What Will Positively Be?
What will positively be by the end of this hour?
What will positively be by the end of your day?
What will positively be by the end of your year?
Become Who You Already Are
Have you ever dreamed of being more?  Do you have ideas, places you want to go and things you want to do, but lack the belief to follow through?  Don't allow procrastination to keep you from your transformation. Each day you wait, is a day of your life being lived, without you.  Create a clear vision of who you are and keep in front of your mind.  Live your life so it reflects excellence, honorable characteristics and your God-given abilities.  It's time to raise the bar.  Remind yourself of -- then become -- the you, you already are.

To Your Health
Magnesium and Your Cardiovascular System

Magnesium is a trace mineral that your body needs in order to maintain normal nerve and muscle function. It maintains a healthy heart, supports a healthy immune system, and controls your blood pressure.  It also helps to maintain strong bones and regulate blood sugar in energy metabolism.

A well-balanced, diet, may supply the daily magnesium you need. The best natural sources are avocados, fish, bananas, tofu, brown rice, and mineral water. As a supplement, magnesium-L-aspartate is the most bio-degradable form.

Something to Do About
