"How To Become The Pack Leader For Your Dog"

The most important question to ask yourself when you train your dog is " How do I convince my dog that I am the pack leader" This communicates to your dog that your in charge. As the pack leader you are the decision maker. For example - You will decide where you would go on your walks, on how to behave in different situations and how to respond to different people and things that you will come across in daily life.

Dogs are pack animals, so its important that you study how pack animals behave and operate in daily life. The sooner you understand the dynamics of pack animals and how the leader makes all the decisions for the pack, the easier it will become for you to train your dog. If you let you dog make its own decisions, then one day your dog will do something very wrong and make a mistake that you will regret later in life.

To understand how to become the pack leader you must first recognize that your dogs world is very different to yours. Your world, by that I mean, the type of car you drive, the amount of money you make and all the other things that we do as humans means absolutely nothing to a dog. All your dog really would rather trade all that for a nice little snack.

Just by giving commands for your to sit down before you give her diner is a long way from what you should be actually achieving in order to convince your dog that you are the pack leader that she should follow. Dominating your dog by being domineering is definitely the wrong way and it may in fact make the matter worse, teaching your dog that physical strength is what it needs to become the pack leader is a sure way to fire back at you. Even if you have a smaller dog and you may be able to force it into submission, but it does not mean it convinces your dog that you are worthy of being a pack leader just because you are a bully.

 So the real question then is," How do you become a good pack leader so that you can train your dog?" No matter whatever the breed of your dog, they always use the same principles to check to establish the leader of the pack. But the best way to see how it is done so that you can put it into practice is to watch it on video. there are a few videos which are provided down in the link where you can see how it is done by a professional dog trainer. But some of the most important areas to take control to establish pack leadership are as follows:

The pack leader maintains and keeps total calm composure and is in control where your dog alerts you to danger. This would include anything that your dog perceives as dangerous and barks at in and around your house.
When you take your dog for a walk , she should not at any stage pull you around and decide where you go for a walk. In fact these videos below demonstrate how to teach your dog how to go on walks with you.
When you have convinced your dog that you are the pack leader, she will able to switch of completely and relax when she is in the house, if your dog is unable to relax she will think she is the pack leader and will be alert all the time because she is on pack leader duty!

Getting your dog to relax depends on how you greet and play with your dog after you come home from work or somewhere else. The difference between being a pack leader and follower is so subtle that you need to watch the videos a few times in order to understand it.
Finally, the method you use to feed your dog establishes the fact of who is the pack leader and it is a lot more subtle that just merely asking your dog to sit and behave! These methods will work even if you have a dog who is not motivated by food.

"What Is Motivation And How To Get Yourself Motivated"

When you really reflect on what exactly is motivation, it come down to the creating a burning desire to get yourself to do something that you really want to achieve. It really is the difference to getting yourself to wake up everyday and create the habits that will lead you to a successful lifestyle and just lazing around all day and dreaming about the things you want to achieve. Motivation is the desire that will keep you going on even when you face tough times or failure.

 Most often we make goals and prepare a plan to execute to reach our goals but then we find that we procrastinate. This happens again and again, so what really is going on here ? The problem is that we are very good at thinking and conceptualizing what we want and are really bad at doing and following through and putting ourselves into action to get what we want to get. We forget (or some times don't even consider) one of the most essential step to get ourselves into action. We never take our emotions into account. Most research point out that feelings and emotions are what make people do what they want to do and not their thinking mind.

When we want to achieve our goals we just can't ignore our feeling. Our brains are structured in a way that if our thoughts and feeling compete with each other, feeling always wins. The more we try to fight our feelings for anything, it only makes them stronger and when our feeling wins, our thought will start rationalizing and making up a story.

There was once a research project undertaken where people were asked to see a very emotional and sad movie. One half of the subjects were asked to see the movie but to suppress and control their feeling and the other half of the subjects were asked to see the movie and feel whatever arises. After the movie they then asked all the subjects to do a very mind taxing test where they had to solve tricky puzzles and match colors. As it turns out the people who were asked to feel what ever arises did much better at those tests than the people who were asked to suppress and control their emotions. so it proves that we humans are emotional people and we need emotions and feeling to perform well.

So the steps in order to achieve our goals is that we need to use our thinking mind to plan and our feelings and emotions to act on what we have planned.

So once you have the thinking part out of the way the next thing you have to do is to get those emotions going so that you execute your plans.

Get yourself in a Positive state of mind

We procrastinate the most when we are in a bad mood. So we constantly need to get ourselves out of that state and start feeling optimistic. So the question you will ask is " How will I make my self feel optimistic when I'm not feeling it?" The best way is to monitor your progress and celebrate every minor achievement you have made. Research has been that there is nothing that gets us optimistic more than progress. Here's a quote from Teresa Amabile at Harvard

"This pattern is what we call the progress principle: of all the positive events that influence inner work life, the single most powerful is progress in meaningful work; of all the negative events, the single most powerful is the opposite of progress—setbacks in the work. We consider this to be a fundamental management principle: facilitating progress is the most effective way for managers to influence inner work life."

Reward yourself for achievements

Rewards make you feel good, so you can set a mini milestone and the reward yourself with something you like to celebrate and keep motivated. Another method that also works well is to penalty yourself if you have missed on doing something. Let's say you can give a friend $100 and tell them to keep you accountable. For example if you fail to do a task by 6pm they get to use the $100 but if you do complete it you can have it back.

Find a group who you would like to be and share the same goals.

One of the secrets to success as noted by author Napoleon Hill in his book "Think and grow Rich" is to surround yourself with people who have the same goals and who have already achieved success that you want. There is nothing greater motivation than the power of your mastermind group. As Charles Duhigg's says in his book " The power of habit" When people join groups where change seems to be possible, the potential for that change seems to be more real.

“Why setting goals is one of the most important steps to achieving to achieving your Fat Loss success”

You are about learn how to set goals so you can create good habits to improve your health and energy

I want to tell you a fact why most women will never achieve their dreams of getting the body they want. They never set any goals.
Setting a goal and having a definite plan in mind is one of the most critical steps that will set you apart from most of the other women who want to lose weight. Because most people never set goals, they never set aside the time to create the habits that are required to get their bodies in shape and it will be a few years when they finally wake up and realize that they are fat and lazy. The great thing about setting goals is that you can give yourself a massive advantage to having a good body and creating the success in life that you want.

What setting a goal looks like?

It took me a long time to figure out exactly what to do in order to set goals to create the success I wanted in life.
I started out by doing a lot of research and reading a lot of books and going to a lot of seminars and consistent message of all the experts where:
  • Goals are what take us forward in life;they are like oxygen to our dreams.
  • Setting goals is a fundamental component to long-term success
  • The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score. - Bill Copeland
The interesting realization I had is that just the fact you set a goal, and better still have it written down with a set date for accomplishment gives you something to plan and work for. A well written goal is an external representation of your inner desires and is a constant reminder of what you need to accomplish.
So what is a goal?
A simple definition would be “A desired result a person envisions plans and commits to achieve a personal desired end-point in some sort of assumed development. Many people endeavour to reach goals within a finite time by setting deadlines.” – Wikipedia
Put it simply would be any planning you do for the future to attain a desired result would be a goal.  Once you set a goal, you unconsciously direct your mind to achieve what you want. After years of research I have come to realize that our minds are very powerful in many ways. The really are….. the ability it has to calculate things and figure things out is amazing. So when we focus our mind on our goals in a lot of cases we make those things happen because unconsciously our brain just moves towards that thing.

So how do you create your goals?

So the best way to start creating your goals is to first write down the result that you want to achieve by describing it to the finest detail possible.
So go to your journal and take out a blank page and what I’d like you to do is write down everything you would like to have as the end result to lose weight. I know right….. this could be difficult….. but I really want you to do it. I want you to write straight until you get the exact image of what you want to be to specific details. I want you to describe exactly how you would look, what clothes you would be wearing, how much you would weigh when you look down that weighing scale, the feeling that you will feel. The important thing is to write the sentences in the positive. For example: “ I would weigh exactly _____ pounds” and not “I will lose 20 pounds”.
With this exercise what you’re doing is getting your mind to focus to get those things that you want to achieve and you will unconsciously move more towards that. And to make it a lot more effective you should read this goal that you have written every day.
It may be a small thing to do, but it could change the way you think. It did for me

“How to create habits to have a positive, healthy and successful lifestyle and achieving to achieving your Fat Loss success…”

The Arts, Science and psychology of creating new habits that creates a life if abundance.

If you learn and use what I am about to teach you, you will create good habits that will help you to lose weight. If you don’t learn what I am about to teach you, you will not lose weight and in fact you will probably gain more weight.
Create a habit by doing the same things, the same time every day for a month. This gives you an insight that you need to change your life, it’s very powerful, it actually a very profound insight that I learned from a mentor of mine.
So let’s make it so you automatically do the important things you need to do every day so you improve your health, have the type of body you’ve always dreamed of, improve your energy, connect with more influential people, increase your income automatically and set up your life so that you don’t get distracted by unimportant stuff which keeps you from growing in all these important areas of your life.
The best way you make sure you do the important things every day is to create a habit, to make it habitual so that you don’t have to think about it. You want to just wake up every day and start doing those important things. Now as it already turns out we are already doing the same things at the same time every day anyway. We are already creatures of habit. The trick here is to figure out how to do the things you want to do, instead of what you do that you just picked up along the way and now you can’t stop yourself from doing. It takes 30 days to create a new habit. This means in order to change one you actually have to focus on it every day for 30 days. After 30 days it’s all set up and you just wake up and just do it automatically.

So how do you create a new habit to lose weight?

So here is the action plan…. The steps to creating a new habit and to getting yourself to do the important things everyday so you can increase your health, attract influential people, and help you lose weight.
Step one - Choose a new habit you’d like to create
Step two – Set a time every day, ideally, first thing in your day to do it
Step three – Don’t check email or voice mail before you do your new habit every day
Step four – Do your routine every day for 30days in a row and it will be set for the long term
Now it’s time to act so you get this into place in your life, so you start doing what it takes to et the energy increase you want, attract influential people you want to attract and achieve the income you want to achieve. So take out a blank page in your journal right now and write down the new habit you would like to create in specific detail. If you’re going to start exercising every day, write down how you’re going to get ready, what you’re going to wear, where you’re going to exercise, what the routine is going to be. Then mentally visualize yourself doing your new habit, your new exercise routine, 3 times in your mind. Imagine it in your mind clearly until you can see the entire thing and you see what you have to put in place to get yourself to do it.
Next put into your calendar for the next 30 days, put a note in your computer, in your phone so as to remind you to go and do your exercise first.

Remember its creating good positive habits will lead you to achieve your fat loss dreams faster.Click on the link to learn about the weight loss lifestyle you can start right now to reduce your Stubborn Female Fat The Beta Switch Lifestyle by world renowned women fat loss expert Sue Heintze

“Jump Start Your New Year’s Resolution to Lose Weight Now”

So you’ve made a New Year’s resolution to lose weight. Now what do you do? It can be very daunting to start on a brand new healthiness when you don’t know where to start. Below is a list of tips you can use to help you jump start your resolution now!

Find Support Online-There are so many online support forums out there now. Finding one to be a part of can really help you find the motivation to start your healthiness journey. Bonus, you may make some great friends that have some of the same interest in health and fitness that you do, and they can help push you when you’re having a hard time.

Do Activities You Enjoy- If you hate running, don’t commit to run five days a week. You just won’t stick to it. Same thing with broccoli, if you don’t like it, don’t eat it. Find activities and foods you actually enjoy. Maybe you’ll find out you’re really into cross fit and you love kale! Also, try different cooking methods on healthy food; you may find roasting veggies is the bomb while steaming them leaves them bland and boring.

Do it Together-Finding someone that you can work out with can really help you jump start your New Year’s Resolution to get healthier. It provides you with an accountability partner. Knowing that you have to meet your friend for that three mile run you planned will help keep you on track.

Schedule it- Along the same lines, you should schedule your gym workouts for weight loss on your calendar. Treat it like it’s a business meeting you cannot miss. This way you have no excuse when it comes time to work out, you already have it scheduled!

Start Small-Work on one healthy aspect at a time. It can be very daunting to start working out, eat healthier and track everything all at once if you’ve never done it before. Instead, pick one thing and work on it each week.

Set Goals-When you want to make a lifestyle change, you need to sit down and actually write your goals out. What do you want to do and more importantly, why are you doing it? Once you have it all written down, put it some place visible where you can see if regularly. That way if you are having a hard time getting out the door for that early morning boot camp workout, you’ll see reason you started in the first place.

Set Rewards-One of the best ways to get yourself motivated is to set rewards for yourself. Start small, with rewards at first. You could reward yourself with a pedicure if you tracked your food and stayed within your calorie count all week. Or you could buy yourself a new outfit if you worked out three times a week each week in a month. Create a reward schedule and start working towards your reward!
Whatever you choose to do to help jump-start your weight loss routine, remember you are doing it for you and nobody else. While losing weight can be daunting, breaking everything down into small steps and following some of these tips will help you realize big rewards in the future.

"8 Weight Loss Tips For Beginners"

If you’re overwhelmed with all the information on weight loss and you don’t know where to start, I have listed down a few simple tips to help you get started on your journey to losing weight right away without spending any money.

Always start with a consultation with your family Doctor.

Before you start any weight loss program, product or nutrition program to lose weight, it’s always a good thing to consult your family doctor first. The first thing you should see if it is safe for you to lose weight or if it is even necessary for you to lose weight. Talk to your doctor about your plans and come up with a plan if the doctor advice's you to do so.

Always have your Reason “Why do you want to lose weight”

Your reason as to “Why do you want to lose weight” is going to be your biggest motivators on the days that you just don’t want to follow your diet or program to lose weight. Make sure your reason to lose weight is big and important enough to you so as to make sure you will take positive steps. It might also be a good idea to write it down in a reminder note so that it is the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning every day.

It’s better to do something about it than doing nothing

Make a plan of what steps you’re going to take to lose weight and write it down, so that you’ll automatically start taking some action towards your weight loss goals. Just thinking about it, or conceptualizing about it will not get you anywhere. So plan definite action steps, set aside a time so that you consciously do whatever you have planned and it’s always best to start first thing when you wake up in the morning. If you decide to go to the gym, take actions to research and join a good gym, plan the clothes that you’re going to wear, the exercise routine that you’re going to do, the diet you’re going to be on etc. The point I’m trying to make is to plan everything in detail.

Try to make small changes first, rather than a lot of drastic ones

Most people fail because they try to achieve their weight loss goals by making a lot of drastic changes all at once, it’s a lot easier to make a few small changes first, letting your body adapt to it first and its more likely that you will stick to your plan. As you make good progress you can then add a few more healthy habits along the way. Ideally you would want to add just one positive healthy habit a month.

Be easy on yourself and make sure you give yourself time to lose weight

Although would might like to believe so, it’s not practical to lose weight in a day or a week. Some type of diets may help you lose weight fast, but most often it would not help you to lose your weight permanently or would give you any sort of long term happiness. Always remember losing weight permanently is more of a journey where you stack one good habit over another and that will take some time.

Research and select a good weight loss program that would suit your lifestyle

Look around and choose a weight loss program that looks realistic to you and something that will fit into your lifestyle. Choose a weight loss program which is more balanced and holistic that would educate you about weight loss and offers you regular and on-going advice and support. Make sure that the program has some sort of support group or forum where likeminded people like you can discuss and educate each other about different eating habits and exercise routines. Always check for positive reviews about the weight loss program before you commit to join them.

While setting your weight loss goals, ensure that your expectation are realistic

If you have unrealistic expectations, such as trying to lose a stone in two weeks, you will end up feeling frustrated, unmotivated and you will end up quitting because you won’t see any results as you’ve wanted too. So it’s always a good option to have goals that realistic and you know you can achieve. If fact you should encourage yourself or reward yourself for any positive progress that you have made along the way.

Keep motivating yourself to reach your goals and don’t give up

Even though you might come across obstacles on your journey to losing weight the secret here is to never give up. Sure you will have days when you can’t get into your routine or your program but make sure you get right back to doing your program as soon as you get a chance to do so. Studies have shown that it is relatively easier to re-start a habit once you have already gone through the pains of starting them. Be persistent and don’t go back to your old habits even though your body might want you to do so. Some people think that weight loss or having a healthy lifestyle is a short term process but on the contrary it’s a life time journey.

So I wish you all the best with your weight loss success. If you would like to learn about the weight loss lifestyle by Worlds Renowned wons weight loss expert Sue Heintze  The Beta Switch Nutrition

"Some Weight Loss Tips I Would Have Given My Younger Self If I Could Go Back in Time"

Living a healthy lifestyle starts young. However, many of us find ourselves as adults, overweight, and not sure where to start when it comes to losing weight. If I had to go back and give my younger self tips losing weight, this is what I would tell me:

Throw away the sodas- there is nothing in soda that is good for you, it’s filled with high fructose corn syrup and a ton of chemicals. If I could tell my younger self one way to drop weight quickly, it would be to get rid of all that crap. Instead, I wish that I would have started drinking water so much sooner. Not only do I feel better now when I’m properly hydrated, I don’t come down from a sugar high a few hours after drinking it.

Veggies are your friend- One thing I wish my younger self knew is that you don’t have to cut out everything you love to lose weight. Instead, you should think about portions differently. For instance, instead of denying yourself a burger when you really want one,
have the burger, split it in half and fill the other half of your plate with a salad or steamed veggies. That way you can satisfy your cravings and eating well for yourself.

Go outside and play-If you want to lose weight, you need to move more. However, when I was younger, I thought that meant you had to go to the gym. This is so not true, living a healthy lifestyle means finding things you love to get you moving. Take a hike, play on the playground with your kids, or go swimming and actually swim—activities like these will get your blood pumping without the boredom of a treadmill.
