What did we learn this week?

Trust is defined as a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability or strength of someone or something. It’s been said that trust in any relationship is one of the most important aspects. Without it, your relationship is nothing.

This week we learned that broken trust truly is the hardest thing to rebuild. Where do you begin? How do you move forward? and the hardest question still remains; Can you really ever trust someone again after they have betrayed you?

After reading many articles and racking our brain trying to come up with answers, we realized something, Betties. You can read 100 books, articles, and interviews about this topic, but one thing is certain. Unless you can get over whatever betrayal took place, you will never fully trust a person again.  You have to start by letting go. Forgive but never forget.

It’s Friday. A new week is upon us. We challenge you to try to let go of any loose ends that may be causing conflict in your relationship. Whether it be you or the other person who caused the issue. Life is too short to hold on to grudges. If you feel that a person should stay in your life for any reason; act on it. Move forward. Work together as a team and reach your goal.

Have a safe weekend!

The Power of Positive Thought

We, we’re into the New Year and our resolutions have faded or are fading fast, so what’s new? You look around and see the evidence of your failure in the empty, discarded fast food bag or bags on the floor of your car. It goes that way, so much for getting in shape with that new gym membership.

It’s not too late to revise and revisit your resolution and save it from the dust heap. How do I do that you ask? Actually it’s quite simple, first put down that TV remote and listen. Resolutions are promises we fool ourselves into making with the transition into the New Year. Like any promise, they can and are be easily broken or waved off. The success rate for changing comfortable behaviors with a spoken promise is quite low.

​As an Ultimate Bob, we want to maximize each day and each opportunity which we come across in our daily travels. Rather than make a promise, let’s each take a breath and envision a new way to change our lives or at least our behaviors. Instead of saying, I’m going to the gym to work out, ride the Lifecycle and get in shape, look forward and see what you will look like and feel after several months of discipline. See the change you want to become. Envision yourself with a smaller waistline, bigger biceps and more prominent triceps.

Close your eyes and see you running each morning, visualize yourself with a slimmer sculpted waistline, in better shape enjoying a more robust energy level and feeling better about yourself. The key is to visualize what it is you want to become.

The constant visualization will not just motivate you; it will reinforce that which you wish to become. The power of your will is far greater than you realize. Trust yourself in that vision, close your eyes and dare to dream the new You into being.

Peace,

The Ultimate Bob

 

Not So Random Thoughts

Not So Random thoughts for 2013 from an Ultimate Bob.

Like many before, New Years fizzled for me this year. It wasn’t because I wasn’t excited to ring in a new year and wash away the old. I goofed up on the Ultimate Bob protocol for a proper celebratory transition into the New Year. My positive attitude knows I will do far better as we go forward into 2014.

Despite the gender swerve, we are all, at one level or another, alike no matter how different we envision ourselves. We love peace, dislike hate and intolerance and enjoy being respected; the list is long. We all spend multicolored money and we all bleed red blood. There is only one race…The Human Race and we’re all in it together.

Let’s all plan on making 2013 the year that each of us make a difference. If you go and volunteer in a soup kitchen, don’t wait. If you donate clothes or household goods to needy and deserving charities, do it sooner. There is no room for intellectual lethargy. Get Moving! Let’s not wait for the transition into 2014 to lament the important things we promised to do this year but didn’t. Good intentions are only a good start.

Year of The Snake

Hello Dearest Betties and Happy New Year!

We’ve been gone for a few weeks to spend time with our families for the holidays but now we’re back and ready to make 2013 the best year yet!

This year is our year, Betties. It is also the year of the Snake. Do you ever take a look at the place mat under your delicious bowl of Wonton Soup and see 12 animals? Along with the animals comes years under the different animals. The years correspond with the animal and well you get it. If you don’t.. now you do:
chinese-zodiac-calendar

The Chinese New Year or “Spring Festival” begins every January or February and runs through the next January. This year it begins on February 10 and each New Year runs as a 15 day festival. It is their biggest holiday and celebration.

Everyone says “oh, a new year, new beginnings” and people may be sick of hearing it but the people who actually want to do something different will and our hats are off to you. Go BIG!

If you were born in 1989 except big things, we do!
