What's New?

They say that you are what you think. Be careful of your thoughts because they become your habits and your habits become your destiny

It is so important to learn how to develop a strong mindset, and positive self image, that I wrote a book about the steps to increasing your self esteem and learning the skill of positive communications and the art of becoming assertive without being aggressive.

So much success in life, and happiness in life, boils down to how you think, how you see the world and your place in it.

Don't sell yourself short. You got this.

O.K. Lets begin with this weeks Power Tips report for you... ENJOY!

"Do Your Actions Support a Strong Mindset?"

It's clear that life doesn't divide up all good things evenly among all people.

You can tell that just by people watching. Some people are better looking than others. Then there are people who are richer than their peers.

There are people who come from a good background. They have a great education. They're intelligent, well-liked - and it appears the world is theirs for the taking.

Then, there are people who are average in looks. They don't have all of the money they need, much less all that they want. They come from backgrounds full of various struggles. They may not have attended a prestigious college - or even any college at all.

Yet, so many times, it's this second group of people who end up far more successful and enjoying more personal satisfaction than the first group. The reason for this is mindset.

Remember that someone who seems to have it all doesn't always stay that way. And what you see on the outside - the nice car, the fancy clothes - doesn't necessarily reflect inner happiness.

It's not enough to wake up every day and tell yourself positive things. That's a great start, but mindset isn't enough to change your life. You have to have an active role in taking action to leverage mindset into a new existence for you.

Understanding Mindset

It's not your lot in life that determines what you can or can't achieve. Being successful in life is something that can happen for anyone because the key to success in business or in your personal life is having the right state of mind to carry you forward.

There are two kinds of mindsets. One of these appears successful - but in the end, that success will stall out. The other mindset will pave the way to a life full of personal accomplishments, business achievements and deep inner satisfaction.

The first mindset is called a fixed mindset. This is what people have who rely on what they know, what they're born with and what they believe they're capable of currently to succeed.

They believe that they have everything they need within themselves. That sounds positive, and in some ways - it is. But they run into obstacles and because they sometimes don't see anything they currently have to handle it, they falter and fail.

But with people who have a growth mindset, they believe that anyone can work hard. They don't have quitter's attitude toward achieving success. This attitude causes them to strive while others coast by and get stopped by roadblocks.

The two differences can be compared to the race between the turtle and the rabbit. This was a race between unequals. If anyone were to bet on success between these two opponents, they would have bet on the rabbit.

From the outside, he had everything. He was faster - because biology guaranteed that. Surely, he would finish the race with success because he started out equipped to win.

But as everyone knows, the story didn't end up like that. The turtle was the victor because he wasn't afraid to keep on going - despite the fact that the odds weren't in his favor.

He didn't have the speed or talent the rabbit had, but he was willing to stay in the race because he knew what the rabbit didn't. He knew that while he didn't have the ability to run that fast, he had the ability to go at his own pace and cross the finish line.

That race all boiled down to mindset. The rabbit also got complacent and didn't even try to create a strategy because he, too assumed it was a given that he would win.

Your mindset has three parts that make it work - your IQ, the behavioral patterns you've learned, and your abilities. In those with a fixed mindset, they think that they have the talent and behavioral patterns they were given - and it's set in stone.

They believe this guarantees them success because of their talents. And if there ever happens to be something they can't do, they don't attempt to push it because they don't believe they're capable of doing more than they currently can.

Though people with a fixed mindset can achieve some success - and many do - the level of success has a ceiling. The kind of breakout success that they want always seems to elude them.

And it always will, because they keep on doing what they've always done - relying on themselves and foregoing any chance to grow so they'll know how to be the successful person they want to be.

But in people who have a growth mindset, it means that they're highly teachable. They're willing to learn what they don't know. They believe that they might have some natural ability or talent in an area, but that it needs to be cultivated.

They realize that they can always improve on what they already know. They're not afraid to try and fail because they understand it's a common part of learning and achieving.

People with growth mindsets are willing to put whatever effort is needed to achieve success. They're willing to take action that will propel them toward their goals and their dreams.

Look back on the past three months of your life. Think about whether you've had limited self talk that convinces you that you can't go after something "out of your league."

Have you quit on a project or partnership because you felt it was simply too much for you to handle? That's a sign that your actions aren't aligned with the positive mindset you've adopted over time.

Letting Go of the Wrong Mindset

If you have a fixed mindset, it doesn't mean that you're stuck with it. Being aware is half the battle. Your mindset is something that can be changed - depending on how you cultivate it.

First, you have to be able to identify the mindset that you have. You need to understand that your mindset can be fixed with one issue, yet be leaning toward growth on other issues.

This occurs because though there are two definable types of mindsets, you can have times where you cross the line from one to the other - and your mindset becomes a mixture of the two.

You can tell if this is what you're experiencing by your inner thought patterns. If you feed yourself limited thoughts, then you're in a fixed mindset. Fixed mindsets will often first focus on the negatives in any situation before they see the potential.

Fixed mindsets will close doors to opportunities while growth mindsets seek ways to open them. An example of being in a fixed mindset would be inner thoughts like, "You don't have the right talents for this. You're not intelligent enough. You'll make a fool of yourself if you try."

These fixed mindset thoughts keep many people from trying new ideas or venturing out on their own. If you're not sure what pattern you're in, keep a journal of your honest feelings to gauge where your head is at over the course of a 6-week period.

A fixed mindset can keep people stuck in a routine, such as giving them the fear of leaving a job they don't enjoy - when they really want to start their own business.

If people with a fixed mindset decide that they're going to make a change and reach for an opportunity only to have it end badly, they'll hear a round of "I told you do" thoughts.

This leads them to believe that they're not enough - that they're better off not trying again. A fixed mindset can keep you trapped and prevent you from developing a strong success mindset unless you decide that you've had enough.

To change a fixed mindset to a growth mindset, you have to stop the messages that a fixed mindset feeds you. Instead of allowing yourself to believe thoughts like, "I knew I was a failure. I blew it," you would switch that to something like, "I know I'll find a way to succeed. Look at all of the setbacks others had - yet, they made it and I can, too."

Understanding mindset so that you can let go of the wrong kind is one thing, but you have to know how to take action to support that mindset.

A Success Mindset Requires Action

Inaction is stillness. It means that you're not moving forward in any aspect of your life. You know you need to make some changes and know you want to put them into action, but you never actually do anything about it.

A success mindset can be harder for those who struggle with self-esteem. Maybe you had someone who told you that you couldn't do something that you always wanted to do.

Maybe you don't have a strong support system in your life. Or maybe you're the enemy of your own success. That's what you are if you tell yourself that you can only accomplish so much and you shy away from bigger goals or dreams.

You believe those are for others. The others that you've convinced yourself deserve it more than you because you think that they're more talented or smarter.

Or you might have the right self talk, the positive mindset, but fear paralyzes you into procrastinating on the actual action of making beneficial life changes. You have to plan for your successful outcome.

Begin what it is that you want to do - even if every move you make is screaming that it's not going to end well. You want to do this because when you take action, your beliefs follow.

This is what trips up too many people. They think they must believe something before they take action, when it's the opposite. Take action, then watch how much you'll believe in what you can accomplish.

Every time you complete a task toward your goal, you gain self confidence in your abilities. This is how you develop a strong success mindset. It's like working a muscle.

Action strengthens the belief. People who have a fixed mindset will often avoid taking action. They want to do what they know is safe - what they're already good at.

Because if they take an action step and it doesn't work out, it will make them feel as if they've failed. This is a hard thing for people with a fixed mindset to experience.

Some will never take that leap of faith again, while others will keep going because they want it bad enough. It's action that takes someone with a fixed mindset frees them up to the potential lurking inside of them.

"Do Your Actions Support a Strong Mindset?" Report continued...

Using Your Mindset to Define the Action You Need to Take

Too many people make sweeping statements about what they want their success to look like. They follow this by coming up with goals that are vague and out of their control.

For example, if someone were to say, "I want to make a million dollars," that goal, while one a lot of people have, is too broad. You can't take action if the success you want is too generic.

Making a million dollars would need to be defined by how, when, and what actions you need to take to reach that goal. If you were to say, "I want to make a million dollars on the stock market," then that gives your action a way to focus on the process.

You need your actions to be definable in order to develop a strong mindset that takes progress toward success. You would focus making your million dollars by learning all that you could about the stock market.

You would study tutorials, read books, and maybe even take classes. You would try to find a mentor. Each of these steps moves you toward what you've defined as your ultimate goal.

You would analyze where you are right now in your life so that you could clearly define the action steps needed. If you want to earn a law degree, but you didn't finish college, you would define one of your action steps as finishing college before you could apply to law school.

What helps when defining action is not to look down the road at where you're going to arrive some day. You have to stay focused on the here and now. By being in the present, it's easier to continue taking action.

Like the turtle in the race, you focus only on the step directly ahead of you. You don't focus on how many more weeks or months or years it's going to take you to reach the success that you've defined.

The reason that you don't want to focus on the broader single goal is because that can lead to a fixed mindset. You're in a constant state of failure until that goal is reached.

If you're achieving mini goals on a regular basis, then suddenly the world is wide open to you because you have a growth mindset - you can see evidence of your consistent accomplishments and it reinforces your belief in yourself.

7 Habits That Lead to a Strong Success Mindset

To get what you want, whether it's in your personal or professional life, you have to learn to do what works. For most people, this means creating a habit. But a habit isn't something that never changes.

A success habit is always evolving.

Habit #1 - Make sure what you want is really what you want.

Don't do something just because you should. Check in with yourself every 30 days to make sure that the path you're on is the one you want to stay on. Doing this prevents you from ending up with business models that don't satisfy you.

Make sure you're not abandoning something out of fear of failure. There's a big difference between doing what's right for you and doing something that feels easier.

Habit #2 - Begin every day with motivation.

These are things that work to get you to take the next step. For example, if you need to go for a run to clear your head and get some time to think, then do that. If you need to use specific habits every morning in order to get into the flow, then let those habits be what compel you to get into your day.

Starting off with motivational reminders is like eating breakfast in the morning - it helps fuel you throughout your day. You also want to spend a minute or two looking back over your day and being proud of what you did accomplish.

Habit #3 - Don't chase success to the point that you stop dreaming.

Your success begins with an idea, a hope - a dream. If you go all out, driving hard, keeping your nose to the grindstone, you can reach the point where your mindset becomes fixed.

All you can see is the end result rather than the journey. Remember that on your way to getting what you define as success, you will never have these days filled with learning curves again.

Sometimes it becomes a chore to just blast through a task list - especially if you forget about why you're doing everything. If your goal is to live on the beach in a nice home, make sure your routinely revisit those plans to keep you inspired with your action taking.

Habit #4 - Make sure you leave room to grow.

You need to have a success mindset that keeps you learning even when you feel you've made it. There's always something else that you can learn. Seek out new resources online, book, new niche leaders who teach things from a different perspective - anything that helps round your education out.

Habit #5 - Answer to someone else.

You want to have someone in your life that you're accountable to. Make time to meet with someone who can help keep you on track for reaching your success. You want this person to be someone who can tell you when you're driving yourself too hard and someone who can help steer you around pitfalls.

Sometimes you won't have a specific person in your life capable of doing that. You can turn to a paid life coach or even join a forum of like-minded, positive individuals all striving for their own success.

Habit #6 - Learn to trust yourself.

When you go after what you want in life, there will always be someone waiting to tell you that something is either a good idea or a bad idea. Everyone has a built-in alarm that will sound if something is off.

You'll feel it as knots in the pit of your stomach or as a sense of unease. When you begin trusting yourself in these situations, it helps you develop a sense of self-confidence and strength.

Habit #7 - Understand that roadblocks are going to happen.

You have to determine ahead of time that you won't give up - you won't surrender a growth mindset to a fixed one. Roadblocks can often be used as character builders.

They can strengthen your resolve and help you learn to become more resourceful as you find another way to do what you want to get done. If you become too comfortable with your efforts, you often don't achieve the ultimate success that you're after.

Having a strong mindset in life, whether for your personal or professional satisfaction, requires a combination of positive thoughts and verifiable action steps.

Whenever you do something that you start to feel a bit of shame over (like quitting on a project), ask yourself if you're doing it because you don't believe enough in yourself to succeed.

If that ends up being the case, take the task and break it up into micro-sized mini goals that you can work on to see if you're capable of making progress that way. Sometimes, it's the simple fact that a project seems too big that ruins many of the best plans.

It's also a good idea to surround yourself with action-taking, positive people. Take inventory of the kinds of people you're currently surrounded with. Do they always complain about everything?

Do you find yourself commiserating with people stuck in the same boat as you? If so, jump out and swim to shore - because that boat is sinking fast, and you don't want to be swallowed up by the pity party they're throwing for themselves.

Seek out motivational experts whose thoughts align with what you find inspiring. Tune in to their messages or read their books daily as if you're taking a vitamin designed to prevent illness.

Over time, you're going to become someone who others look to for support, and you'll notice they come to you with fixed mindsets. They'll be attracted to the positivity you project. Make sure you turn their mind around, rather than letting their limited thoughts infect you.

Smart Food Swaps

Make your meat more heart-healthy. Cut fats from meats before cooking.

It takes willpower, but you’ll feel better for it afterward. Choose a salad instead of french fries.

If you choose a Caesar salad, have only a tablespoon or two of dressing. Most restaurants over-serve the dressing.

Ordering pasta? Try a half order or skip the garlic bread as it adds more energy-sucking simple carbs.

Want something crunchy on your salad? Try nuts instead of croutons.

Did you know that quinoa has fewer carbohydrates and a lot more protein than brown rice?

Choose complex carbohydrates over simple ones. This means wheat flour over white flour and brown rice over white. They’ll keep your energy going longer.

Greek yogurt is a creamy treat that is low in fat and has less sugar than most North American commercial brands.

"GoDaddy Shared Hosting Review – Is the Big Daddy of Hosting All That It’s Cracked Up To Be? "

It’s very likely that you’re not reading this GoDaddy shared hosting review because you’ve never heard of GoDaddy and now you’d like to check them out.

Of course you’ve heard of them, because GoDaddy is everywhere you look. They’re on billboards, television commercials (including the super expensive Super Bowl ads), on the sides of race cars, and all over the internet... with huge celebrities endorsing them left and right.

In fact, they’re by far the most utilized web hosting company in the world, with over 45 million domain names being hosted with GoDaddy.

But why?

What the Heck is So Great About GoDaddy?

This company is more than pretty girls in racecar suits and gorgeous personal trainers.

In fact they’re more than just the brilliant marketing behind their founder Bob Parsons. The reason they have so many domain names under them is because they’re very effective at what they do when it comes to domain names and website hosting.

Their customer service is huge to them...

And it should be to you too. Customer service is at the heart of every single company in the world. Without a high level of customer service and thought toward your customers, a business cannot get to the top of such heavy competition simply by having good marketing.

Sure that might help for a while, but eventually that will fall by the wayside, and as people start realizing that you don’t care about them, they’ll start to run the other way in droves.

So when you think about the end-user obsessively you very likely become known and thought of very fondly... simply by wide spread word of mouth.

GoDaddy has seemed to make an art of showing their customers how much they care about them.

Their customer support is a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and the fact is that they’re really their to answer your questions. Plus their staff is top of the line. There’s no getting off the phone wondering what you should be doing, because they really stay right there with you, helping you out until your problem is solved completely.

If there’s one downer to their support is that there’s no chat function. However their emails are almost always answered extremely fast. They tend to answer their phone calls very fast as well, which allows you to get started resolving your problems quickly... which at the internet pace is extremely important.

But Is The Outstanding Support All That Sets GoDaddy Apart?

GoDaddy is FULL of amazing features for you.

However, unlike many of the other hosting companies out there, not everything comes unlimited right off the bat. In other words, the basic cheaper package doesn’t have an unlimited list like HostGator or FatCow does.

In fact the disk space becomes unlimited only on their largest package actually… where they allow you 10GB in their Economy package, 150GB in their next Deluxe Package, and then unlimited with the Ultimate package.

They do allow unlimited bandwidth on all packages however.

As far as domains hosted, it becomes unlimited on the middle and last package.

What they do offer is a sort of a la carte type of menu where you can pick and choose things that you’ll need, more than just giving you everything right out of the gate. I would say that it’s what might hurt them as far as sales, but then again, it doesn’t look like they’re hurting for customers at all.

Email Accounts...

You get from 100 email accounts to 1000 email accounts depending on which plan you choose.

Along with the caps on those allotments comes a cap on the number of emails per account, going from 100MB of storage a year for the Economy package, 500 MB of storage a year for the Deluxe, and 1GB of storage for the year with the Ultimate package.

This isn’t great when compared with some of the other hosting plans like JustHost or FatCow, but in all actuality, for a smaller business or website it’s likely to be plenty. Sometimes unlimited sounds good, but the fact is that you rarely ever even come close to pushing the limits of that.

It’s almost like eating at a buffet. No matter what, you never eat ALL of the food that’s there.

Overall Ease of Use...

One place where GoDaddy stands out is within the ease of use.

Uploading files to your GoDaddy hosting is very simple with their file manager is very much a breeze.

They’ve also got a tool to help you build your website aptly named “Website Tonight” that’s really simple and easy to use, with a vast template library. Millions of the websites on the internet have been built with this website building tool.

Are They Reliable?

When you’re a hosting company with so many customers and so much to lose, you’ve got to have two things.

You’ve got to be secure and reliable.

GoDaddy offers 24/7 security monitoring, as well as a 99.9% uptime guarantee. They also offer SSL security so that YOUR visitors feel safe and secure when they’re on your site shopping, or even just browsing.

This is all crucial to having a website up on the internet these days, and of course the biggest hosting company in the world knows that.

So Is GoDaddy Worth It?

So the fact is that I’ve mentioned quite a few times that GoDaddy is the biggest shared hosting company in the world, and that they outpace their competition by actually monumental amounts.

However, that’s never a reason to choose a website host.

While I can confidently recommend GoDaddy, I would recommend them more for the person just beginning and with a smaller business. If you’re more experienced with website building and website hosting, then you may find that you’re limited with GoDaddy, and it’s likely that a company like iPage or HostGator will do you more justice.

But for the newer website owner or for the person who wants an easy to use web host that you can simply rely on to be there when you need it, then I CAN certainly recommend GoDaddy for you.

If you are that person, and this GoDaddy shared hosting review has shown you that this is a hosting company that you can count on, then check them out yourself by clicking here now

Editor’s Note by Helene Malmsio

Well, I had a busy week socially because I went out to dinner with my Dad early on and then on the weekend went to see the Handel's Messiah concert in the city big concert hall. Big deal, expensive... but that was our Christmas treat for the year, since we don't do gifts much.

And this week I had the pleasure of picking a bucket of apricots off the tree here, yumbo! More than enough to also make some jars of apricot jam.

I also distributed some Christmas cards and small token gifts to neighbours this week. Decided to get it done early this year, since I was such a laggard last year.

I'm really chilling and relaxing this Christmas, which is just the way I like it. And now that my few days of cooler weather have passed, and the next heatwave is descending on us, I'm going to batten down the hatches and sit in front of the airconditioner for the rest of the week!

If you find the whole Holidays and Christmas preparation to be a nightmare I have lots of suggestions in my online guide here for how to keep Christmas simple without losing any of the fun and charm of the season.

This week I also took time out to create diary designs especially for those people who love creepy, crawly, slithering pets! So my range now includes Diaries illustrated with B&W clip art images of snakes, lizards and spiders on every page. You're Welcome!

But since I much prefer designing pretty covers, I also created a new Butterfly diary, filled with lovely images of butterflies on every page, to inspire you as you plan your week and month.

So pretty!! Definitely getting a copy of this for myself to use this year as I love butterflies and what they represent with selfgrowth, and evolving to be our best selves with drastic changes that can feel life ending at times!

I'm being happily surprised by some of the best seller design choices that buyers are making. And I'm so happy that some buyers are getting multiple copies of some designs, obviously planning on giving them as gifts as well as using for themselves.

THANK YOU so much to my subscribers here that have bought their diary from my range, it is very much appreciated!

Calories That Don't Count

We have it on experience (our own and thousands of others) that the following food and situations have no calories to speak of (although the knowledgeable might describe them as unspeakable calories.)


A chocolate mousse that you did not order has no calories. Therefore, have your companion order dessert and you taste half of it.


Chocolate chips are fattening, about 50 calories a tablespoon. So are chocolate chip cookies!

However, chocolate chips eaten while making chocolate chip cookies have no calories whatsoever. Therefore make chocolate chip cookies often but don't eat them.


All food eaten while standing has no calories. Exactly why is not clear, but the current theory relates to gravity.

The calories apparently bypass the stomach flowing directly down the legs and through the soles of the feet into the floor, like electricity.

Walking seems to accelerate this process, so that a frozen custard or hot dog eaten at a carnival actually has a calorie deficit.


Anything produced, purchased or intended for minors is calorie-free when eaten by adults.

This category covers a wide range, beginning with a spoonful of baby tapioca -- consumed for demonstration purposes -- up to and including cookies baked and sent to college.


Pies and cakes should be cut neatly, in even wedges or slices. If not, the responsibility falls on the person putting them away to "straighten up the edges" by slicing away the offending irregularities, which have no calories when eaten.

If pie or cake is neatly cut, but the remainder is not easily divisible into equal servings, it's also permissible to even things up ... without calorie consequence.
