Henry Ford

 

“Whether you think you CAN, or think you CAN’T, you’re right.”

 

Ever heard that saying by the late Henry Ford (ie. the automobile inventor)?

 

It’s amazing the big things the mind can do.

 

Your mind has the power to help you make a change; the power to help you accomplish; and the power to get things done.

 

Your mind has the power to propel you to where you want to be.

 

So what are you going to do about it?

 

This past week, during a meeting, I was challenged to answer the question:

 

Where do you see yourself in 10 years…Where do you really want to be?

 

Close your eyes. Imagine money, time, education, roadblocks—nothing stands in the way.

 

How old are you (in 10 years)?

 

What are you up to? Where are you living? Who are the people who are around you? What have you accomplished or overcome? What are you working towards?

 

What do you want out of your life and how are the actions, decisions and choices you make each and every day aligning with that vision?

 

After all, the keys to your sweet success don’t lie in the snap of your fingers or twinkle of your nose, but rather the day by day, small steps you take towards that bigger picture.

 

Don’t lose sight of what you are working towards and where you want to be.

From recovery from an eating disorder or alcohol addiction, to the dream job you think is “too hard” to attain, to the types of relationships you aspire to have in your life, financial security, an accomplishment in your passion (ie. sell your first painting, to make it out on the competition floor in your sport), and beyond.

 

Above all, the power of your mind WILL get you there.

On the topic of goals—ever have the goal to be a better cook? But it’s too challenging?

 

No longer.

 

Hungry? Why wait? Grab a spaghetti squash (in season and potentially, ON SALE, in your go-to grocery store) and get cooking.

 

Spaghetti squash is just what it sounds like—squash that shreds to look like spaghetti. As ‘intimidating’ as it may seem to bake and prepare yourself, it’s super simple!

 

Try this easy peasy recipe, that’s a little bit different than the ‘norm’ recipes you see out there for ‘spaghetti and meat sauce’. Bon appétit.
