Each of these three days of the existence of this Team, the HEALTHY REFLECTIONs have seemed SO APPLICABLE that I can't resist sharing. Excuse the redundancy if you subscribe...or read it again (they're that good I think!).

ENJOYING THE ROAD TO ACCOMPLISHMENT

Stop living life for what's around the corner and start enjoying the walk down the street.
-- Grant L. Miller, motivational guru

It's possible to be a little too focused. With blinders on, it becomes easy to completely live in our vision of where we will be in the future, while ignoring the improvements that we have made in the present.

The road to a healthy lifestyle is a long trip. While it's very important to realize what we are shooting for, we also need to make sure that we keep our heads in the present to enjoy the progress we've made.

If your goal is to lose weight, instead of waiting to celebrate until you lose it all, enjoy today's small victories and take advantage of your improved health now. This approach serves as motivation for any aspiration in life.

Set ambitious goals and enjoy the road to accomplishing those goals, because life might pass you by if you are always planning for tomorrow without ever seeing today.



Strength does not come from physical capacity.
It comes from an indomitable will.
-- Mahatma Gandhi

Never eat more than you can lift.

Another great HEALTHY REFLECTION:

CONQUERING YOUR FEARS THROUGH ACTION

I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do, provided he keeps doing them until he gets a record of successful experiences behind him.
-- Eleanor Roosevelt, human rights advocate

Life brings with it many doubts and fears. But the unknown and the untried have held more people back than any lack of ability. Most successes are never seen because they're never attempted. The courage to face your fears can build momentum that creates magic.

Each time you overcome an obstacle, a fear or a step back, you gain confidence. Every small victory helps you feel more certain of yourself and your direction, pushing you further and faster than you ever thought possible. You can do it!

What's holding you back? True, fears are intimidating. So start small. Believe in yourself and take one small swipe at your fear today just to see what happens. If you can't talk yourself past the "point of no return," get a friend to help.

In the end, half of the doing is in the deciding. If you stumble, don't be afraid to brush yourself off and jump back in.

We dance round in a ring and suppose,
But the Secret sits in the middle and knows.
-- Robert Frost

And it is so empowering to realize that we, the whole, are greater than the sum of our individual parts!

Today's HEALTHY REFLECTION:


OVERCOMING OBSTACLES ONE AT A TIME

Fall seven times. Stand up eight.
-- Japanese Proverb

Your goals may not come easy. There is no accomplishment without work, and no "win" without something to beat. It's easy to get discouraged when roadblocks appear--in fact, it's only natural. You've invested time and emotion into creating the perfect plan, and then something has to come along and muck it all up.

Sometimes, though, all you have to do to beat that barrier is to get back up and move forward again. Obstacles are like the Wizard behind the curtain--they're a lot less intimidating once you see them up close. Next time you take a step back, don't let guilt pile it on top of your previous "stumbles."

Just take two steps forward and you're still farther along than you were before. It doesn't matter how many walls you face. You only have to get the better of that last one.
