Be The Best You Can Be!

Hello everyone.
Today’s post focuses on you, my readers.
You‘ve made it through a rough winter, and soon, instead of wearing a heavy coat while outside, you will be wearing suntan oil instead, as you frolic on the beach!
But what is going on inside your body – specifically your mind?
Are you living up to your full potential, being the best person you can be?
Is money the only thing that drives you to wake up each and every day?
Do you stare at the clock at work, waiting for 5:00PM to arrive, so you can finally go home?
And, once you get there, are you a couch potato, doing nothing but watching television, as you wonder if there is more to life than this?
Only you know the true answers to the above questions and if you are stuck in a rut.
However, it doesn‘t have to be that way, since nobody but you controls how you feel, what you think, and what you do on a daily basis.
You might want to try a few simple things to get yourself motivated, which, in turn, can lead to increased happiness.
Start your day off by exercising. 
After a good night‘s sleep, wake up refreshed and ready to take on the world!
If you can devote at least 45 minutes a day to an exercise regimen – walking, jogging, yoga, pilates, weight training, or even simple calisthenics – and you don‘t even necessarily need to go to a gym or buy expensive equipment, you will see not only an increase in your physical fitness, but an uptick in your psychological and mental health as well.
This, in turn, will give you a more positive outlook on your own self-image, which will result in higher confidence and self-esteem.
Next, make sure you always eat healthy, and treat your body like the temple it is, and you will be ready to take on the world!
Maintaining a smile on your face, even when things may not be going as well as you would like, has also been proven to increase one‘s health, so why not subscribe to this idea yourself?
If nothing else, people will notice, and you will be thought of as someone who is approachable and gives off an aura of kindness.
Finally, make it a habit to write, whether it is a letter, birthday card to a loved one or friend, or even a diary or journal.
This is an immeasurable way to stay connected to others, as well as yourself.
You can chart the progress you have made in your attempts to become a better, more fulfilled human being, and you will open your mind up to unlimited possibilities, simply by being honest with yourself, as you put your thoughts and feelings down on paper.
If you follow the above steps and suggestions, your life can change for the better.
But this is only the beginning, as the potential to be the best human being you can be will just be starting to surface.
You weren‘t put on Earth to experience a mundane existence.
No, you were born to thrive in life, so take a look at yourself in the mirror, and like what you see.
Then, go out there and make a difference in the world.
You can do it!

About gman18

I came into the world on October 18, 1961. John F. Kennedy was President of the United States. The film West Side Story was released, and would go on to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Major League Baseball was celebrating Roger Maris of the New York Yankees, who hit a then-record 61 home runs that season. I was an excellent student, although a bit of a class clown too. I spent a majority of my time playing sports, but fell in love with newspapers, which was how I was initially introduced into writing and storytelling. While attending Kingsborough Community College from 1979-1981, I served as editor-in-chief of the school's paper, and then joined the staff at Long Island University's Seawanhaka for my junior and senior years. At L.I.U. where I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Journalism in 1983, I was also a selected member of Sigma Delta Chi, as well as Who's Who Among Students in American Universities & Colleges. My last year in college included an unpaid internship at WCBS-TV, Channel 2 in New York City, where I learned so much about the television business. Upon graduation, I landed a job at the network, starting as a news clerk for The CBS Morning News with Diane Sawyer, and also weekend shifts for The NFL Today with Brent Musburger. After quickly rising in the ranks to producer, my life suddenly went on a downward spiral due to addictions to alcohol, drugs and gambling, which ultimately led to nearly six years behind bars for robbery. My time incarcerated gave birth to my first published book, Jew in Jail, which tells my true story of how I finally decided to deal with my addictions and turn my life around, all the while under the toughest conditions imaginable of being a minority in the prison system, forced to fend for myself. Writing Jew in Jail - as I was doing my time - allowed me to become very introspective, and realize that I could help others in similar situations of being an addict and/or living with low self-esteem. Today, I still reside in my hometown of Brooklyn, New York, where I am working on my next book project, continuing to promote Jew in Jail, and always helping other addicts through my motivational and inspirational speeches, and one-on-one consultations.
