The Single Most Important Way to Become Healthy

Jan 15, 2008
So you wondering, what is the most, single important thing I can do to be successful at becoming healthy? It us so simple you probably have never even thought about it! Do this and you are half way there!

It is not a physical thing as I have been trying to tell what you do each day. Most people are reactive, not proactive.

See if this hits home. You have a bunch of errands to do, have to work in a few hours, bills to pay, a meeting, etc. What do you almost always blow off and tell yourself, I will do it tomorrow? Ah, the gym! You just gave your health a low priority in your life. Most of us put making money at the top of our list. I will suggest that you could have put off something other than the gym that you could have done tomorrow without any major disruption or catastrophe in your life. Why did you choose to pick the gym to abandon? Because you pick the easy, non painless way out, not that the gym is painful.

Until you condition your mind that going to the gym is your sanctuary where you can get away from the troubles of your day and get into your zone and get some great feeling endorphins flowing, you will always prioritize all other trivial things in your life above it. If you never change anything in your life, you will always be the same.

Unless you try something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

When you stop growing you become old. You can be 30 and be old. If you do not seek knowledge and have a passion for life you are missing out on living an extraordinary life.

So what is the thing you need to do? Make health your priority! Realize that you have nothing without your health. A sick millionaire is just as unhealthy as a sick low income person. What good are your millions if you have a chronic disease fueled by a sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits? You are not bulletproof. Do not wait until your health goes bad before you prioritize it. Take action today. Do not procrastinate for even a day or you are reinforcing your negative habits and kidding yourself. Live in the now, the past is over and the future you do not know. Be healthy now and be happy now!

This is part of a message a friend of mine sent me:
Just for today I will take care of my body. I will exercise it, care for it, nourish it, not abuse or neglect it, so that it will be a perfect machine for my bidding.

Just for today I will be happy. This assumes that what Abraham Lincoln said is true, that most folks are as happy as they make their minds up to be. Happiness comes from within. It is not a matter of externals.Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to be happy, to enjoy what is beautiful, to love and to believe that those I love, love me.
