It’s not WHAT you want, it’s how BAD you want it!

Every decision is a balancing act:  Effort vs Reward.

Making the decision to change, to go down a difficult path, means your reasons to succeed have outweighed your excuses to fail.  I’m still struggling with this myself, but every step in the right direction makes my resolve stronger for the next time.

Decision Choose Change or Same Old Street

I’ve read several books and articles about highly successful people and there’s one overwhelmingly common element:  they WON’T give up, and they refuse to listen to even one million “No’s,” or one million voices saying “you’ll never succeed,” all they know is ‘try again’.

We can only be responsible for our own paths, our own results, our own successes or failures.  In the end, reaching your goal will be that much more meaningful because it wasn’t easy.  The day I literally made it to the top of this mountain, healthy enough to return to snow skiing at 53 years old, was the day I quit listening to my own voice that said “you’re too old and overweight to get back in shape.”  Now all I hear is “what’s next?!”

If your energy is chronically depleted, how can you enjoy the moments that truly matter?  Maybe you’re the one sitting on the sideline while others are playing ball?  If you’re just an observer of everyone else’s life, you actually deprive the ones you love of celebrating the gift of YOU!

THE 20TH CENTURY BROUGHT US LONGER LIFE, THE 21ST CENTURY MUST FOCUS ON PUTTING QUALITY IN THOSE EXTRA YEARS

Living longer but with poorer health costs money!!

Nutrition, including micronutrients, is key to curbing aging and disease, including cancer!!

You have to do your part to improve how well you live!!  Lowering calorie intake, along with not smoking, staying active and having an upbeat attitude are essential, controllable habits that your loved ones will thank you for choosing.

Quality vs Quantity– What Makes Life Worth Living?

Living according to the status quo means we slow down with age.  Such expectations become self-fulfilling if we believe them.  Fortunately, there’s always those who defy “the usual,” the heroes I like putting on my own vision board of the future.

Living with purpose and joy matters, at least to some of us, instead of merely existing.  What’s your plan??

I just started the Rejuvity skin care system myself, and agree with Shelley’s review about seeing results:  my pores have already shrunk some and my skin looks younger! For me, finding a chemical- free system that works is tough because my skin is tough from sun damage. I’m really impressed this is effective for all skin types! Read more about it HERE
