How to Achieve Your Goals If You're Born to Lose

Some individuals are just born losers, which mean that these people are bound to fail more than others. If you think that you belong in that category, then you a change of pace to start enjoying life more fully. There are some approaches that have been tried and proven by the experts and pros. You might find that you're not such a big loser after all.

Understanding Yourself
Take a pen and paper and give yourself a brief evaluation. Write down the things that you believe are your strengths and weaknesses. It is very likely that you have more items in your weakness list compared to the ones in your strengths list if you are a born loser. Next, try to write down the reasons why you have the strength or weakness. For example, if you listed down "Patient" in your strength list, put some more specific details such as "I am willing to wait several months to save for a new mp3 player" or if you wrote down "Lazy" in your weakness list, you can correlate by stating "I do not like to wake up until after 10 in the morning."

Knowing the specifics of your strengths and weaknesses can help you become more adept in improving the hindrances. It is vital that you know and understand how you can use your strengths as
foundation, as well as turn your weaknesses into strengths gradually. You can aim to change one to three weaknesses at a time.

Changing Your Weaknesses
You need to give yourself time to improve on your weaknesses. Be specific in your action plan by creating steps toward your goal. For example, if you are "weakened" by "Lack of focus", you can start enhancing in that area by doing activities like "Reading more books about the matter for at least 30 minutes a day" or "Listening to a person talk for at least 1 minute before losing focus." Improve in the activities regularly by increasing the time frame and adding more challenges.

Learning from Winners
It is recommended that you stick with individuals who are successful and born winners. This way, you can adapt their habits and personality that will, in time, lead to nonstop success. Winners and leaders have great traits that you can follow, such as perseverance, critical thinking, stability under pressure, competence and the aspiration to never give up. Adopt these qualities as your own and use the individuals as your role models.

Read about people who have successfully made it in their chosen fields of interest. One of the reasons why you may fail constantly is because you are choosing the aspects where you are worst at. Try to ask yourself the things that you truly care about or even study and review without anyone needing to tell you to. These are the features that you are most likely talented in.

Remembering Success
Should you encounter success or achieve your goals, use these as motivational tools to remind you that you are always capable of gaining bigger benefits from larger tasks. Look back on your previous accomplishments and use these finished objectives to lead to your ultimate goal. It is also wise to expect failure once in a while, but you should use this as a way to learn. Failure should always be an opportunity for you to do better the next time.

My The Boy Review

Anyone that knows me knows I love horror films. I been wanting to see this film when it came out and finally got a chance to check it out. I had high hopes for this film and to my surprise it was a huge let down.

The story goes, A young woman who looks like a teenage is hire to be a nanny to a little boy, but the boy isn't a boy or is he? The boy is a doll. I know, I know we seen this before right? Remeber the 1978 movie Magic with Anthony Hopkins...ok maybe you weren't born yet. How about Chucky ("You Wanna Play"), or how about Dead Silence in 2007, and most recently Annabelle. I could go on and on naming other films that are better than this film.

The parents of The Boy is an elderly couple who you is planning a trip and needed someone to care
for The Boy, I mean the doll, whatever! The nanny doesn’t take her duties seriously as she can't believe these people are serious. So what do you think happens...strange things, ok knock here, knock there hear a knock, there a boom, wait did the doll just move? It gets so wired that she begins to believe that this doll is The Boy.

It's extremely sad that Hollywood has lost it creativity in green lighting good films anymore. It's a dime a dozen now. This film will make you throw any doll you have in the garbage just as I thought
this movie was...GARBAGE!! It hasn't done well at the box office, so they will try to make there money back with Dvd and oversea sales. I have been watching quite a few horror short on YouTube and thought these should be made into a full length movie. So Hollywood take a look at youtube you will find alot of good quality stuff to turn into some great films.

As for this film....leave The Boy in the toy chess and stop with the reboots and get your creative side going. Check out the Trailer below.

I Cаn Sее Yоur Underwear

Do you remember the Rhyme :
I’m going to Kentucky
I’m going to the fair
I met a senorita
with flowers in her hair

Shake it senorita, shake it all you can

So all the boys around you

Can see your underwear.

Rumble to the bottom, rumble to the top
And turn around and turn around
Until you make a stop.

Well, this is the thought that comes into my head when I am teaching a class. Whісhеvеr brand you сhооѕе, thе mоѕt іmроrtаnt thіng to lооk fоr is substantial fabric that has ѕоmе bееfіnеѕѕ to іt and gооd rесоvеrу іn thе Lусrа оr ѕраndеx. 
Good rесоvеrу mеаnѕ that the fаbrіс will bоunсе back ԛuісklу when you stretch іt. The better thе recovery thе lоngеr thе lеggіngѕ wіll last before thеу start to bаg оut and become mіѕѕhареn.

Thе bееfіnеѕѕ іѕ сrіtісаl іn thе fаbrіс fоr a few rеаѕоnѕ: First, уоu don’t wаnt there to bе too muсh grіn-thrоugh when you wear уоur leggings (grіn-thrоugh mеаnѕ уоu саn ѕее уоur ѕkіn thrоugh thе fаbrіс when stretched), аnd, secondly, the bееfіеr thе fаbrіс the mоrе support you wіll hаvе when wearing thеm.

Leggings аrе оnе the bіggеѕt fаѕhіоn trеndѕ fоr fall, whісh means уоu'rе gоіng to ѕее them еvеrуwhеrе you lооk. Hоwеvеr, lеggіngѕ аrе аlѕо оnе оf thоѕе trісkу ѕtуlеѕ that a lоt оf wоmеn wear completely wrоng аnd оnе thаt mаnу оthеr wоmеn completely аvоіd fоr thе sheer fеаr оf wearing thеm wrong.
That way уоu саn get out thеrе wіth thе fаѕhіоnаblе оnеѕ аnd take оn wеаrіng lеggіngѕ with ѕtуlе thіѕ season.

Hеrе are ѕоmе соmmоn mistakes whеn wearing lеggіngѕ: 

Leggings = Pаntѕ

Thе fabric on a рrореr lеggіng ѕhоuld bе thісk ѕо you do nоt ѕее the реrѕоn'ѕ skin рееkіng thrоugh. If уоu саn see through thе leggings, thеn they're probably tоо thin or thеу'rе tіghtѕ, nоt leggings, and tіghtѕ are NOT раntѕ. In fact, іt'ѕ a gооd rulе оf thumb to wеаr lеggіngѕ аѕ іf they аrе not раntѕ аѕ wеll.

Tight Top + Tight Bоttоmѕ
Mаnу women trу tо сооrdіnаtе lеggіngѕ wіth сrорреd оr tight, fіttеd tорѕ. Nо matter how grеаt уоu lооk from thе rear, bаlаnсе аnd lауеrіng аrе іmроrtаnt whеn іt comes to wеаrіng lеggіngѕ wеll. Lеggіngѕ аrе more lіkе tіghtѕ than раntѕ. Bаlаnсе out form-fitting leggings wіth lооѕеr, roomier tорѕ, ѕwеаtеrѕ, оr tunics.

The Wаlkіng Anаtоmу Lеѕѕоn
If уоu wаnt an аnаtоmу lesson, уоu'd gо buy уоurѕеlf a Fеmаlе Anаtоmу Dоll, nоt gо tо thе mаll lооkіng fоr wоmеn. Wear leggings wіth longer ѕhіrtѕ, tunics, оr a ѕhоrt drеѕѕ. Thіnk mіd-thіgh length оr, at the ѕhоrtеѕt, right bеlоw thе hір аnd соvеr thаt rear.

Disco Rеvіvаl
Whіlе there іѕ рrоbаblу ѕоmе wоmаn оut there who саn rосk ѕоmе silver, gold, or hіgh-glоѕѕ leggings. Whеn іt comes tо lеggіngѕ, ѕtееr сlеаr of the ѕhіnе, whісh can show bulges оr create thеm еvеn where thеrе аrе no bulges. Stick tо opaque, shine-free lеggіngѕ. 

Life Iѕ One Bіg Aеrоbісѕ Clаѕѕ
Life іѕ NOT оnе bіg аеrоbісѕ сlаѕѕ, so please dоn't gо around drеѕѕіng like іt іѕ.

How tо Wеаr Lеggіngѕ thе Rіght Wау
Mаkе nо mistake. Leggings аrе nоt just for wоmеn wіth bunѕ of ѕtееl. If уоu wear thеm well, anyone оf any bоdу tуре саn lооk grеаt in them. Tо hеlр you gеt inspired wіth оutfіt іdеаѕ fоr уоur leggings.

Here аrе some grеаt wауѕ to wear lеggіngѕ: You can wear leggings
With a shirtdress 
Wіth a lоng sweater 
Wіth a tunіс 
Wіth a ѕkіrt 
Wіth lауеrѕ

Bottom line make sure you inspect your leggings before buying them. Make sure they are not see through, keep in mind what you forget to notice...we see.

My No Good Deed Review

No Good Deed is that movie I can watch over and over again, which I have. Every time it comes on I find myself glued to it from begining to end. So what is No Good Deed? It's a crime thriller that stars Taraji P. Henson and Idris Elba while I did say I watch it over and over, there are many flaws in this movie.

The story is about a married woman named Terry (Taraji P. Henson) with two small kids who gets a knock on the door from a stranger named Colin (Idris Elba) who was in a "Car accident" and seeks help, but what what Terry doesn’t know is that Colin is a convicted killer who has escaped. As the story starts to unravels it starts to become clear as to why Colin knocked on Terry's door, and it not because of a bump on the head.

This is where the flaws start, so if you haven't seen the film STOP READING NOW! And come back after you seen other wise keep reading. The chemistry between Taraji and Idris is good, as they are friends off camera, but that's the first issue I have, the chemistry should be amazing! Taraji is a powerful actress no matter what I seen her in, she delivers. Edris is a good actor, but I felt he falls short in his performance here, it could be he was doing project after project and maybe was overwhelmed. Taraji had so many amazing moments in this film, it's disappointing that Idris didn't pick up on it. While its not all his fault, the editing played a huge part in the film as it starts to unravel, it becomes choppy.

The cat and mouse game became very tiring after a while because of the missed moments between Taraji and Idris, one moment is when Colin told Terry to "Put this on" and she replied "No am good" he goes to her woth the gun pointing at her and proceeds to run the gun along her face. She thinks he's about to rape her, but a few seconds later he says "Don't flatter yourself", what he should have done was get up and close in her face almost lip to lip and than said his line. It would have been more powerful and heightened the moment. Another thing she hits him a few times, he would have killed her already, but no he continues to tease her with the gun.

Than when they are in the car driving and she signals the police officer with her blinkers and they get pulled over. The officer questions Terry outside of the car asking her "is everything alright?" and she hesitates. This is were a major flaw happens it is night time and early that morning Colin killed to corrections officer who were transposing him back to prison after he was denied release. There should have been a man hunt for him, with his picture all over the news, so when the officer pulls them over and ask Terry to get out of the car to talk to her, he could have said something like "That's a convicted killer, get in my car I will protect you" and Terry could have said "No, my babies are in the car" than Colin could have gotten out and killed the officer.

Now we get to a different house and we discover its Alexa's house, Colin fiancée who he has killed earlier because he suspects she was having a affair while he was locked up. Do you see where am going with this? So Terry's car alarm goes off and Colin ties her up to go shut it off before someone hears it. While he is gone the dead fiancée's cell phone rings and Terry answer it to discover....It's her husband on the other end and puts the pieces together. This is where they should have had a Fatal Attraction style ending, but the ending was weak and a let down.

I would have had the husband come and Terry should have killed them both one for survival and the other for there's a twist no one would have seen coming. It's still a good film, but it could have been much better. If you saw it please comment and let me know what you thought, and if you haven't seen it check it out its on cable. I still think they both are great actors, it just this movie was alittle off.

Feng Shui For Health

Feng shui has long been heralded for its ability to increase people's energy level and give them a much healthier life. This may sound unusual to some people but really think about it.

Feng shui calls for a clutter-free, well lit area with good air circulation. That by itself can do wonders but when applied with various feng shui techniques, it can make amazing improvements in your state of mind.

Nobody likes living in a mess and that can affect you mentally. To maintain a space that is beneficial to your health, there are only three basic needs that have to be met.

Fresh air is very important in the modern world.Thousands of years ago there weren't factories and cars all over that seriously diminish air quality. Even in your home there are many pollutants from things like your stove, refrigerator, and animals.

The easiest way to help eliminate some of these pollutants and to add something beautiful to your home is to get some air purifying plants.

Many types of small palm and fern are renowned for their ability to suck in toxic substances that are in the
air. In addition, they put out oxygen which is always a good thing.

Lighting is very important also. Light is one of the most powerful forms of energy in the universe. Many of us don't get enough sunlight exposure as we need on a daily basis.

Feng shui encourages the use of natural light whenever possible but in areas where that isn't an option, full spectrum lighting is recommended.

The last basic need is to stay free of clutter. Get rid of stuff you don't really need and don't be a pack rat. By starting with these three basics, you can learn more and start applying feng shui cures to your home and life.

Diana Ross...A'int No Car Accident will keep me from you!

"Ain't no Valley low enough, Ain't no river wide enough or car accident will keep me from you" should be her new anthem. News broke that Diana Ross was in a car accident! I almost had a heart attack before I even click on the full story!

Diana Ross is my idol. I grew up listening to The Supremes and the motown artists. Diana was always the stand out to me. I've listened to every song and see her in many concerts. One concert she even brought me on stage. I went to see her at Radio City Music Hall in NYC and we had back row seats which didn't sit well with me. So me and my friends got up and walked down towards the stage and there were three seats empty, so we sat in them and god must have been with us, because bo one ever claimed them.

So she started singing Muscles, and she was eyeing a guy in front of me to show his muscles, but he didn't because he was embarrassed, so I stood up and said "Look at me!" She did and waved her hand to motion me to sit down. I was in heaven cause she motion to me. She than sung another slow song called So Close, and she started bringing people up one at a time and dancing with them. Only if she could have picked me. So I stood up again and said "It's my turn!" She looked and me and waved at me to come up... OMG!! My dream was coming true and as I started to to run up on stage, security stopped me. I was almost crushed with heartbreak when she said the them it's ok.

So I am on stage, she has one arm wrapped around me and a mic in the other serenading me. We dance as if one one else was watching and as we separated I turn to see out i to the audience and it was pitch black. I couldn't see anyone one, I thought I died and gone to heaven. It was so magical I remember it as if it was yesterday.  So I started to return to my seat when she slapped me on the butt. (See dreams do come true!)...
Anyway back to almost having a heart attack. I read the story and the only way I would believe that she was ok is from her tweet she sent out to everyone. Assuring them she was ok and would still be performing.

I know the power of adrenaline. I was in a car accident on my way to teach in New Jersey once and I remember, not feeling any pain even though my leg was banged up pretty bad. The police had to stop traffic on the highway to bump my jeep off the road. They called AAA and when they asked me where I wanted to go. I said the gym. When I walked in word got out about my accident to the entire gym. So everyone was surprised to see me show up l, even with a limp. I taught my class. I informed them that I dont know what going to happen, but we gonna ride like there was no tomorrow.  It was packed, not a bike available and it was the most reward rides of my fitness career.

AMC Theaters "Considered" allowing texting at the movies

Adam Aron, the CEO of AMC Entertainment. said in an interview with Variety that he has considered allowing texting during screenings. When I go to a movie, I want to escape for couple of hours and the one thing that ruins it for me is people texting in the middle of the movie. The screen light is very distracting if you are sitting next to the person who is texting or viewing there phone.

Other things that ruin a movie for me, is when someone phone rings or talking during the film. These are the reasons I dont like going to the movies and if I do I try to go early before it gets pack so I can get a seat that either one or two people can sit in. I have been monitoring the feedback online and it's not been in favor of this idea. Here are some of the responses to AMC's texting idea.

" AMC Theaters wants to "allow" texting during a movie??? That's one theater I won't go to.  How pathetic - - why pay for a movie if you're going to text?"

" Bad idea very bad idea I was going to boycott AMC theaters  .... No texting WTF idea !!!!"

" This is why i dont go to the theater. Too much texting!"

After receiving thousands of backlash comments like the one's above on social media AMC decided to retract there plan to allow texting during a movie. Check out what they had to say below.
