Self-made billionaire Oprah says no one can take away the gift you want to give. She learned young to focus on what she has to give, not what she had to get. If you're going for something big, then focusing too much on the far horizon can undermine your confidence, too. Instead, focus on your execution today. Refuse to anchor your thinking in the the huge gap between today and the goal you want. The gap is scary big only because you are dreaming big. Good on you. Get back to what you can do today to feel your sense of personal power surge.
Cortisol, the stress hormone, is one of the biggest factors that contribute to hormonal imbalance. For a woman to conceive, her hormones must be in balance, so when her stress levels are too high, especially chronically, she will have a difficult time getting pregnant. "Cortisol throws off all of the hormones because it places the body in a flight or fight state so that the other hormones do not have a chance to do their own jobs," said Mindy Berla , certified holistic nutrition and fitness specialist at Brooklyn Academy Roots in Oakland, Calif. to Medical Daily . Focus on your body and find a place to sit at peace and take deep breaths to naturally relieve the tension and stress levels in your body.
