Speed

Speed

 
     There's a natural tendency to approach life in a leisurely way.  True, there is great importance in slowing down and smelling the roses.  Procrastination is one of the greatest obstacles to accomplishment.  We all experience procrastination. I'll do it later.  I'll do it tomorrow.  I'll do it when I get around to it.  Someday I'll.
 
     We all have a finite number of days we will be around on this planet.  I have a calendar in my house that has every year, month, week, and day on it for 100 years.  It starts the year I was born.  Unless I'm one of the very few to make it past 100 years of age, every day of my life is on that calendar.
 
     When I look at that calendar I see the day I was born.  I see the day I graduated from High School, College, and Medical School.  I see the day I got married and the days each of my two sons were born.  I see great days, good days, and even some bad days.  What this calendar reminds me of, is that there are only so many days.
 
     If I find myself saying "Someday I'll lose weight, take a trip, call my friend, start a business, retire, or any other thing I may want to do, I can look at this calendar and say "OK, Which Day?".  Many people treat life as if the days will never end for us.  We go through life putting off the things we say we want to do.  We either really don't want those things or we have no urgency.
 
     We must take action and put a bit more speed in our lives.  Not recklessness. Speed.  If you're late or anxious to get somewhere, don't you move and drive just a little faster?  Of course.  We must decide what is important in our lives and begin today to move on them.  If getting healthy is a high priority, then what are we waiting for?  A sign, an illness, a friend or family member's death.  We should stop waiting until a bad event motivates us to live our lives fully.
 
     If you are serious about dropping extra pounds and getting lean and fit, start right now.  Move fast to do the things you must get done.  One of my mentors taught me to never let the sun set on a goal without having acted on it.  Action is the only thing that matters.  Many great minds have developed amazing ideas, plans, inventions, and thoughts, but without taking action these potentially great things are worthless.
 
     There is a small window between thoughts and actions.  We must open that window and jump through it.  Today is the day.  Now is the time.  This moment can change my life and the life of those around me.  You want to lose weight?  You want to get fit?  You want to feel and look your best?  You want to add years to your life?  You want to live life fully?  Think Speed and Do it Now!  Do it Now!  Do it Now!

Snack Yourself Thin

We need to fuel our body at the right time with the right amount of food. Often we eat way too many calories at a setting and turn on the fat production machinery in our body. Small snacks throughout the day and a lean and green meal do the trick.

Yes or No

Decisions drive our life in a direction. We can choose that direction by the decisions we make. Decisions should be simplified to a Yes or No answer. Learn how to make better decisions and live the life you want.

Adventure

Life is an adventure in itself. Sometimes we get stuck in a routine and forget to venture out to see new things, experience new experiences, and meet new people. We must resist getting stagnant and seek a life of adventure, even if its within us.

The Path to Excellence

We can all do better. We have many paths that we can choose to take in life. Each time we take a new path we can move in either a positive or negative direction in our life. Focusing on the positive little things daily can take us on the right path.

Regrets

We all have regrets in our life. What we want to do is start living a life that has no regrets from this point forward. We don't want to have regrets about our health when we get older. We can do things now to avoid the regrets of disease and illness.

Personal Power

We are in control of our lives. At least we are in control of how we respond to what happens in our lives. Our health and all the other aspects of our life can be taken charge of. Become the director of your life and get fit and healthy now.
