What Is the Best Mindset for Your Success?
Your relationship with your mind and body is just like any other relationship—you get results based upon the way you nurture, respect, and encourage the connection. And how you nourish yourself mentally and physically is a reflection of how you look and feel, right? But when it comes to maintaining a healthy mind and body . . . there's no one-size-fits-all method.
To back up this theory, check out these 10 scientific studies centered around nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, and mindset. They may forever change the way you think about your health and well-being.

Have You Tried Creative Visualization Yet? visualize success.png Have you ever set out to complete a goal but were all over the place with it . . . expending energy and focus inefficiently, and ending up with poor results? If so, it may be time to try creative visualization. Visualizing future events and outcomes for success has been around for hundreds of years; it's been practiced by monks, nuns, kings, queens . . . and pro-athletes.
And in the last decade, scientists have shown that visualization increases performance by improving motivation, coordination, and concentration. Also known as “mental rehearsal,” visualization trains the brain for a performance.
And according to the results shown from brain scanning technology, your mind doesn’t know the difference between something that happened and something that you envision will happen. Discover more about how practices like creative visualization, meditation, self-reflection, and mindfulness help stimulate new, positive neuropathways.
: If You Can't "Let Go" of Your Thoughts, Listen to Them Instead morning meditation1.png Some people believe a quiet mind leads to inner peace. This is a common theory and practice found in most spiritual traditions. But many people find that it's impossible to do . . . and for a good reason: the more you relax, the busier your mind/brain becomes, right?!
#olgamlazin Tip: Don't try to get rid of your thoughts at all. When you choose to meditate, or when you slip into that peaceful state of daydreaming, just observe them . . . without judgment. Notice how your thoughts and feelings continually float in and out of your conscious awareness. In your mind's eye, see your thoughts appear as thought bubbles. Watch them sail across your mind . . . then drift away . . . out into space. The more you relax and watch them (you may even hear them), the more you'll feel a growing sense of tranquility. What’s important here is you are developing your ability to observe all the subtle feelings, thoughts, and sensations that you're experiencing. This type of mindfulness practice can lead to strong self-awareness and emotional intelligence. Remember, thoughts are just fragments of memory, dreams of future events, and miscellaneous ramblings of your creative brain. Notice what you notice, just say "here it goes my thought again."
Because You're likely to discover something remarkable. My sister is an Achiever, Alanna S.
Alanna always struggled with her weight. And through the years she saw many professionals, hoping someone would have a program that worked for her. She tried dozens of fitness and nutrition plans, but nothing seemed to keep the weight off. Alanna made a promise to herself that she would never be more than 200 lbs, and when she saw the scale read 196.4 pounds one morning, she knew she needed to try something different. Luckily, she discovered OL's Program and the science behind Winning the Game of Weight Loss (WTGWL). After Alanna purchased the program, she dove right in and started seeing results almost instantly. Over the course of the program, Alanna learned how to shift her lifestyle to better support her goals.
It’s an ongoing process, and she’s happy to have access to the private online support groups with other people going through the program, as well as the other OL coaches. Alanna was able to release 22 lbs of weight, mostly from her belly, and she feels much more confident about her body and her appearance. She not only looks better, but she’s more in touch with her circadian rhythm, her diet, and her exercise habits. She’s changing her body from the inside out, and doing what works for her!
