How many times per day to we say "I'm sorry"? I began to do it again...
Some time ago I would often start and end my conversations with the word “sorry” — sorry for bothering you, sorry for the bad news, sorry this issue came up, sorry for asking questions. Lately, I found myself slipping back into that old habit.
How we set our mind ie, mindset...
Me, I have a tendency to care too much. I cared too much about people’s opinions and what members thought and it showed in the way I felt around others. So I started to follow a few simple steps this I think will help as we all have a tendency and can run in all of us.How I catch and then break the "I'm sorry cycle" It took time to master I am constantly vigilant, but it works and it gives power to who we often feel they need to apologise for the way their anxiety makes them feel and behave. But all you are doing is excusing your anxiety, and reinforcing that it is something you are ashamed of.
I’m now not sorry for many things anymore and I’ve certainly stopped apologising for being me as most of you know i am a bit straightforward.
Never apologise for your anxiety Those who are anxious, especially around others,
I can tell you first hand, it is not serving your best interests or anyone else. To recover you must be with who you ar"OK" right now, it will help you accept where you are so you can get to where you want to be. Constant apologising and explanation of your anxiety only reminds you that it has this control over you, it helps give it the power to exist.
You have to get it set in your mind, your anxiety needs no apology, it never has and it never will.
Stop looking for their approval for the choice you’ve already made. If you feel you must, say ‘no, I’m busy then’, or ‘no, I’m not able to’. But that should be it, don’t be shaky about it (I like straight talk, don't you?) Stop going on in great detail because you’re worried that you’ve not given them the answer they were looking for. Or worse, you've offended them. Have confidence in your convictions and whatever you do, don’t apologise afterwards for your choice.
It’s time to put it This into action
As with any habit, it becomes subconscious and ingrained. You’ll find you apologise or say "a sheepish "i'm sorry" without even thinking and therefore it can be difficult to break. It takes a little practice to be mindful of what you are saying, but never underestimate the power of your own words upon your mind. Our words are our world.
If what I’ve been speaking about, sounds a lot like you, then set yourself a little challenge.
Here is what I would like you to do..
no apologies, no explanations, unless it was clear that they were needed. ( not on assumptions), If I wasn’t certain then I’d ask, and guess what, 95% of the time they were not offended at all! Eventually, unless it was obvious then I wouldn’t say a one word, this is being made about by our own mind. It’s time to stand up, be strong and trust in who you are. This is affective several elements in your progress in the LBA.I have not found a hateful person here in the LBA so I don't think any of you will lose any friends. You may even notice that they’ll actually start to respect you more and this will only further boost your self-esteem.
The 5 Day Challenge
For 5 days consecutive days stick to the following two guidelines:
- Do not apologize to anyone for anything you say or do. Sorry is only needed if you have done something really wrong and know the other person is upset – if you’re not sure, then take it that you’ve done nothing wrong. Do not assume!
- Only answer yes or no to any questions, or give specific answers where necessary. Never say anymore than you need or try and explain your choice.
It’s time to stand up, be strong and trust in who you are. This is affecting you in more ways than you could possibly realize.
I promise, as long as you’re a decent person, you’re not going to lose any friends. In fact, you may even find that people actually start to respect you more and this will only further boost your self-esteem and resolve in following the LBA principles and life in general.

Always begin with the basics. We have heard this throughs or lives. So let's go through what i think to be the BIG 5 and the one we have the most control over.
- Breathing “our breath” Most people you and I included may not even think about breathing (I myself used to talk for many seconds at a time and forget to breathe and have to catch myself!). When you focus on your breath, you can count “one” and "two" inhale and exhale. When you get to 10, start over. I bet you'll start to feel better and more centered immediately. Those of you who follow my blog and periscope broadcasts know i talk about “keeping your breath”. The ability to keep a reasonable conversation while walking/movement.
- Body Language - "Body position and facial expressions" you can and will demonstrate more power and self-confidence by fundamentally changing the way you hold your body. For example, adopting a powerful stance—arms on hips - feet planted wide, causing you to take up more space— Actually can increases testosterone and decreases the stress hormone cortisol (don't worry lady's this will not cause any man like features...). The result? This "power positioning" will make you feel more, well powerfull.. Think about this before you meet with a potential client, go to interview, or even just before you leave the house.
- Sleep The Key Metabolic Balancer - Sleep is absolutely critical for health, anti aging and fat loss. As well as mental focus, concentration, job and academic and physical performance. As well as keeping your appetite under control, and a many other positive health outcomes. In order to “hack” sleep, you have to set a routine. Set a time to be in bed, mine is 9:30 p.m. and I wake up by 6:15 a.m. If your brain can't calm down while you're trying to fall asleep, here is a tip, tell yourself, “I'm proud of what I accomplished today, I'm going to let my brain and body rest now." Or try other trusted get-to-sleep-ASAP methods, including cutting back on alcohol.

Lacto Ovo Vegetarian:
A lacto ovo vegetarian diet excludes meat and fish but includes dairy products and eggs. This would be considered the standard vegetarian diet.
An ovo-vegetarian diet excludes meat, fish and dairy products but includes the consumption of eggs. Ovo vegetarians are also referred to as “eggetarians”.
A demi-vegetarian diet excludes meat but includes fish, eggs, vegetarian cheese and milk-based products.
Semi-Vegetarian (known as the flexitarian diet):
A semi-vegetarian is considered to be a person who is cutting back on his or her intake of meat, but still eats meat when they feel like it (yawn). There are two subcategories to this form of, dare I say it, vegetarianism, which it really isn’t!
A pollo-vegetarian diet, known as pollotarianism, includes poultry, dairy and eggs but excludes fish or other mammal meat.
A pesco-vegetarian follows a pescatarian diet, which includes eggs and dairy products, and the occasional consumption of chicken and fish, but excludes red
Vegan vs. Vegetarian
The defining can be a bit confusing, yet often confused by companies selling food products, foodies and chefs. Like vegans.
Vegetarians do not eat any animal flesh; no chicken, pig, cow, sea animals.
In addition to not consuming any animal meat, a vegan doesn’t eat eggs, dairy products or any other product derived from an animal. Vegetarians, on the other hand, tend to eat eggs and dairy products like milk and butter.
Vegans also avoid using products that have been tested on animals, like makeup and skin creams, or products made from animal skins such as leather belts and shoes. But vegetarians can be a bit more lenient when it comes to using products derived from animals. When it comes to being a vegetarian, the definition isn’t always clear cut.
You might meet a vegetarian who doesn’t eat dairy but eats eggs (ovo lacto), or a vegetarian who doesn’t eat eggs or dairy but still wears a leather belt. Veganism, however, is clearly defined: no eating animal flesh, no using products tested on animals or wearing products derived from animals.
