#10: Health is Wealth

Thursday, July 09, 2009

Publius Vergilius Maro, a famous Roman poet better known as Virgil, once said "The greatest wealth is health."

If that is true, are you rich or poor?

Do you possess Motivation? Inspiration? Dedication? Commitment? Desire? Responsibility? These characteristics are all needed for a successful journey to the person you want to be.

Do you have them?

You have likely heard the old saying that "Wishing doesn't make it so." How true. The change to the new you is not going to happen just because you want it to. Remember that no one can lose weight for you. YOU must do that yourself. No one can exercise for you. YOU must do that yourself. No one can force you to be a wiser eater. YOU must do that yourself.

As you travel along your path to freedom from the current unwanted you, look for the positives along the way. Focus on the long-term, big picture. Too many people think too much in the here and now. So when things go wrong, they can’t imagine anything better .

Whenever your life seems depressing and frustrating, all you have to is look ahead to when things WILL be better. You must BELIEVE your situation can improve.That way, you can handle any obstacle you encounter along the way to the new, improved you.

But you are not alone on your journey. Remember that "wellness" begins with "we." If you need an encouraging word, WE are here for you. If you need motivating, WE are here for you. You are not alone. You CAN succeed.

Stay focused on your journey to the newer person you want to be.

WE have faith that you WILL succeed.

Believe in yourself!
