One Minute Power Tip:

Before entering a room today, think about how you want others to treat you.

With respect? With warmth? With sympathy?

Close your eyes. Visualize them treating you that way.

Now visualize how you need to act to elicit that response from them.

For instance, the best way to be treated warmly is to walk in with a smile. Even if everybody else is grumpy keep smiling.

They will catch on, because smiling is contagious.

Tips for your Happiness

How to Develop Self Confidence and Influence People

Conquer your insecurities by identifying them, first.

If you know what you are coming up against, you can deem yourself powerful enough to squash them. Embrace your blessings.

Instead of wasting your time looking at what you do not have, and what you cannot do, why not focus on the things that you are good at.

Count your blessings and do not forget your triumphs in the past.

Your past success are great motivators; so you need to constantly find time to remind yourself of the greatness you were able to achieve in the past.

Do not forget that your life has been blessed a thousand times over so you ought to appreciate everything you have.

Tips for your Health

What Should You Eat for Healthy Hair?

Knowing how to get healthy hair means understanding the link between your general health and your hair.

Hair growth comes down to a reproduction of cells, and without vital nutrients your body will simply stop wasting energy on growing new hair.

The good news is that, by following a balanced diet, you will already be on the road to having healthy, longer hair.

Here is a quick guide to some of the foods you should be eating:

1) Protein: Most of us have heard that protein is an essential answer to the question of how to get healthy hair.

If you aren’t eating enough protein, you’ll soon know. Your hair will stop growing longer and may even start to fall out.

Make sure you are getting enough protein in your diet from ingredients such as meats, nuts, eggs, cheese, salmon and others.

2) Vegetables: Vegetables contain so much goodness, including many of the vitamins and minerals that are absolutely essential to the processes that make our hair grow healthy and long.

In particular, vegetables are great for giving us vitamins A, C and E.

Try eating more dark green vegetables, such as spinach and broccoli, to ensure your hair stays in top condition.

3) Beans: Beans can help to provide your body with the protein it really needs, but they can also give you a wealth of other vitamins and minerals.

They can provide zinc, iron and biotin: all essential for healthy hair.

Try incorporating more kidney beans and lentils into your diet to improve this area.

4) Omega-3: This fatty acid has been all over the media lately, with claims that it can help your brain.

The good news is it can also help your hair! If your diet is lacking, your scalp will quickly become dry.

Salmon is perfect for this, filled with not only these healthy fatty acids, but also protein, B-12 and iron. A great vegetarian alternative is to take ground flaxseed oil in your diet each day.

Knowing how to get healthy hair simply means giving your body a healthy foundation. Make sure that you have a balanced diet, and avoid going on any fast weight loss plans.

Crash dieting can do you a lot more harm than good, especially where your hair is concerned.

Instead, combine the foods above with a healthy hair care routine, vitamin supplements and a good dose of daily exercise.

Tips for your Prosperity

Home Budget Tips: Realize What You Should be Spending

When it comes down to it, you may not know what you should be spending on items.

It’s hard to make a realistic budget if you don’t have a good knowledge of how your money ought to be distributed ideally.

Here’s a breakdown of where your money should go:

10% ... Savings

30% ... Housing

15% ... Transportation

15% ... Food

10% ... Debt Payments

20% ... Other

These are maximums. So if you spend less than 30% on housing, you can take that money and put it toward debt payments or increase your savings.

Look at the percentages of where you spend your money. Do they match up? If not, it’s time to reallocate your funds.

Make a plan using your income and expenses to make things match up a little more closely to this distribution.

Then make a chart of how much should be spent each month in each category. You should post this prominently in your home.

This will be your new household budget. You’ll also want to post how much debt you have and make a plan to pay it off as soon as possible.

In the next section you’ll read ideas about how you can do that.
