It’s time for you to take responsibility for dealing with your daily challenges. No one likes complainers. Worse yet are those who don’t complain, who say they are coping and shouldering all the problems themselves when really they’re eating or drinking themselves into the hospital. When we allow ourselves to become overweight, our bodies are in a state of disease. If you continue to gain weight, you’ll never know the day you might have lived to if you had only looked after yourself. The way you look today is a result of the thoughts you had yesterday. If you want to know what your body will be like tomorrow, then you’ve got to pay attention to your thoughts today. Ask yourself, “Am I going to continue to put up with this?” “What am I going to do about this?” The answer has to make a change in your eating habits, starting this moment.
I truly believe that tomorrow is ours to live as we choose, and choose we must. You need your health to continue giving to your world. Don’t cop out by thinking how you’ve got great life insurance and your family will be well looked after. They’re not looked after if you’re not there to provide wisdom, support, and companionship. You’re not a shoulder of support for your friends if you’re not around when they have problems. You can’t help your favorite charities if you’re not there so volunteer your time. You cannot be any use to others if you’re not in good shape yourself. Self-nourishment is the best place to focus on.
Our lives are full of blessings. Any blame for things not being as they should stop with you. Its way past the time when you need to put yourself in charge of your own destiny and become your own number one fan. When you start looking out for number one, you are no longer a physical or mental burden on anyone else. Don’t worry about it being selfish! It brings benefits to everyone. It secures their lives for as long as you’re around, and by changing your eating habits, you’re dramatically increasing the odds that you’re going to be around for a long, long time. After all, it’s the healthy stallion that can lead the herd. It’s the well-fueled and maintained engine that can pull the other cars on the train. You no longer have to rely on doctors because you can become your own personal health care provider.
