9 Dieting Paradoxes that Make Perfect Sense - Part 3

How Can That Be...?


To turn your wishes into goals, the same is true. You get practical results when you apply "what if" to your own life. Your desire to see it through grows as your idealistic vision takes hold.

Success doesn't happen without a vision and hard work. When you have both, they sprout from a passion that's rooted in idealistic thinking.

In the end, the grander the vision, the greater your accomplishments.

PARADOX 9: The best time to act like a kid is when you’re an adult.
When you were a child, you were full of energy, dreams, imagination and the joy of discovery. Those days and weeks seemed to last forever.

But you couldn't just do whatever you wanted. You had to ask permission for everything. You survived on a few pennies or dollars each week. You had to go to bed early. "If only I didn't have to do those things," you thought, "I could have some real fun." Well, now you can.

Playing hasn't changed. You can dream just as big, and play just as hard. Except now, you have the clout to do it right.

You have the freedom. You have the resources. And you can stay up as late as you want.
