"When you always do your best, you take action. Doing your best is taking action because you love it, not because you're expecting a reward." -Don Miguel Ruiz ________________________________________ Ray: To give 100 percent means also that you get 100 percent in return! If you don't exercise or eat right you'll never get anything out of your effort... it's physically impossible! ________________________________________
"There are risks and costs to a program of action, but they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.” – John F. Kennedy ________________________________________ Ray: I'll take whatever risks it takes to get well again and enjoy my life with my loved ones. The long range risks of being a burden to my family, being hospital bound and not being able to do anything just doesn't appeal to me. Being healthy is my choice! ________________________________________
"Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit." –Conrad Hilton ________________________________________ _
Ray: The time to get and keep moving is NOW! Don't put it off! The longer you wait the harder it will be to gain back your strength, stamina and health! You can do it! ________________________________________ _
"We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within." — Earl Nightingale ________________________________________ _
There's really no excuse or circumstance out there where we can at least try to better ourselves. If we take charge of our actions, become our own C.E.O. where our bodies are our company and run it the way it should be runned, then there's nothing that we won't be able to accomplish because we are in charge of our destiny! ________________________________________ __
"The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them." -George Bernard Shaw ________________________________________ __
Ray: This is so true! The people who get up and look for solutions for problems, get up and get moving, get up and educate themselves, get up and learn from others are the ones who get ahead in life! The key words are get up! If you want something "GET UP!" Your body and mind will thank you! ________________________________________ __
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars." -Les Brown ________________________________________ __
Ray: Do everything that you need to do with your whole heart and your whole soul. Focus on the goal and not the accomplishment. Stay true to yourself and don't let anyone talk you out of your ultimate plan! The strength is within you! Find it, use it, and nurture it! Your strengths will always see your goals through! ______________________________________
"Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory." -William Barclay ______________________________________
Ray: The hardest thing in the world is having to endure something that's hard to accomplish, or problems that you "carry around" on your shoulders but being able to endure and conquer that fear, or stress, or physical problem is paramount when achieving your goals... let nothing stop your progress! ________________________________________ "Be like a postage stamp. Stick to one thing until you get there." – Josh Billings ________________________________________
Ray: If you start something, stick to it! Don't stray from your goal... or... all of the effort you put in will be lost and you'll have to start over again! ________________________________________ "Success is never a destination - it's a journey." -Satenig St. Marie ________________________________________
Ray: Enjoy your journey to success after all, if you don't enjoy it you'll probably never finish it! ________________________________________
"Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going." -Jim ryun ________________________________________
Ray: Get into the habit daily of eating right, staying fit, and enjoying life and you'll never look back at your old ways again! Remember, what we're doing is a lifestyle change and not a "Diet" ________________________________________
"People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily." -Zig Ziglar ________________________________________
It's time to "Bath" or wash away the past and reaffirm in ourselves our goals and start out fresh! Remember... You can't change the past so leave it behind you. Work on the present to get better daily so you can have a bright and healthy future...
As always... You're worth it!
