Iron sharpens iron

Iron sharpens iron

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. ~Proverbs 27:17

Wondering why I’m posting this verse of scripture? Well, it’s because it got me thinking about how far I’ve come in my life and attitude over the past two years and what kind of people have had a hand in me getting here. There are 3 things that I suggest doing in order to move in a more positive direction in your life and I’ve listed each of them below:

1) Surround yourself with positive people. They should be:
– like-minded
– goal oriented
– “pushers” (not just your personal cheerleaders)
– people you can brainstorm with; who get you and your dreams

Also, find mentors – both business and personal.

2) Invest in yourself!
– read personal development books; attend seminars & conferences
– exercise
– stop filling your head with trash tv & video games
– pray!

3) Be a “figure outer”
– you never fail at things; you learn what doesn’t work and you try again
– things CAN and DO get discouraging at times – keep going! Don’t give up!
– Google is your friend

I encourage you to take little baby steps in these areas and you’ll begin to see a difference that you just can’t imagine. =)

We are Temples of the Holy Spirit

Your body is a temple

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.” ~1 Corinthians 6:19-20

So tell me….. doooooo you treat your body as a temple, a Holy place or do you treat it as junk shed? I hope that you’re answer is closer to the Holy temple than the junk shed!

In case it wasn’t though, here are a few things you can do to stop treating your body like a junk shed and more like the temple that it is:

*Regular exercise – do you exercise for at least 30 minutes per day, minimum of 3 days per week?
If not, here’s a tip that may help…. break that 30 minutes up into 10 or 15 minutes at a time instead of the entire 30 minutes all at once.

*Good nutrition – eat fruits, vegetables and lean meats
TIP – You want to cut down and/or stay away from these things:
1) items in boxes or packages when possible (these are not REAL food!)
2) fried foods (eat grilled or baked instead)
3) sodas & sweet tea (these are loaded with sugar and/or artificial ingredients)

Water is the ABSOLUTE BEST OPTION when you’re thirsty!

*Eat food made in nature! Eating processed food (boxes and packages – things that come from factories and aren’t grown in gardens) can lead to high sugar, high blood pressure and other diseases. None of us wants to constantly have to go to the doctor for these illnesses so eat foods that will keep that from happening.

Hope these tips help you get off to a good start on your new journey to healthy!!!
