When you have “convenience” food bombarding you from every direction, it can be difficult to choose options that give your body the nourishment it needs.
However, if you have daily reminders and effective tools at your disposal, you may find that eating the right foods and feeding your body the best fuels becomes easier.
Of course, there will always be temptations; but when you equip yourself with anti-temptation tools, you will be able to quickly re-focus your mind on your greater goal of getting healthy!

Top 10 Food and Nutrition Affirmations
Before reading the list below, you should know that affirmations are most successful when you internalize the saying and repeat it frequently.

1) Successful People Visualize The Desired Outcome
Anyone who has become well-known understands that the first success trait of successful people is to visualize the perfect outcome. You probably already know what business, sport, relationship or activity in which you would love to excel. Think about the perfect situation where you have achieved all that you have ever dreamed of somewhere in the future. Then visualize the perfect scenario for you.
Any time you fill your head with images and visualizations of perfection and success, you feed your hunger to do whatever is humanly possible to reach your goals and live your dreams. There is scientific evidence indicating that you move physically towards your most dominant thought. Of all the traits of successful people, how they choose to focus on a specific goal, thought or image inspires them to move on that goal. What thoughts of success do you have that you can rank and make a commitment to focus on for your success? Write them down now.
2) Another Trait of A Successful Person Is Ownership of Failures
There are certainly some successful people who enjoy playing the blame game. However the most accomplished people, the ones that achieve truly incredible levels of success, give credit where credit is due. They exude positivity and happiness, and they are not afraid to admit they have failed. Owning failures is a transparent trait of emotional intelligence. Everyone has failed, and most accept failures as a part of life.
Legendary Texas oil and gas executive and billionaire T. Boone Pickens said the best single piece of advice he ever received was from his grandmother, Nellie Molonson. He claimed that many times as a child, his grandmother told him that sooner or later he was going “to have to sit on his own bottom.” She explained that the phrase meant there was no point in blaming others when he failed, and that nothing good would come from it.
Celebrated author and professional blogger Gretchen Rubin agrees wholeheartedly, saying, “To become a success you should always give credit where credit is due, and take the blame when you deserve it.”
3) The Next Trait of a Successful Person Is To Read
Whenever you see a picture of an incredibly successful person in his or her home office or business office, there are always bookshelves filled to overflowing.
The link is clear in the media perception that a successful person reads. Do they? Yes, reading journals, books, and industry reports is a trait of a successful person. That is because successful people understand the importance of constantly learning about the business, marketplace or endeavor in which they are dedicated to succeeding.
As Director for the National Year of Reading, Honor Wilson-Fletcher pointed out that reading anything relieves stress, improves communication skills and opens doors in business and personal relationships. Countless studies have also shown that consistent reading dramatically improves your chances of enjoying a successful career and life. Make it your goal to read something every day, especially specific reports and resources that pertain to the particular field in which you wish to succeed.
In summary, if you can emulate any one trait of a successful person listed here, then your practice is to choose one trait where you need more strength.
Then focus on it through visualization and move toward it.
The second action to be more successful is to intentionally make a list of your failures, read them and own them. If you feel that any remnant of emotion flares up, then act on it immediately in any of these steps: talk it through with a coach or friend; write out the feelings and words via longhand. The physical act of writing moves the energy of emotions out of you and relieves any tension.
Choose one trait of a successful person today and then focus, be free of blame and failure, and read to stay ahead of the trends in your field. These three steps are part of your success system and you are on your way now! The best is yet to come.
