"Happiness is not a reward - it is consequence.
Suffering is not a punishment - it is a result."
~Robert Green Ingersoll~
I am constantly amazed at the foolishness of the beliefs that our society holds. They can't figure out why they are overweight. They can't determine what brought about the relationship breakup. They don't understand how their bank account can empty so quickly. And they continue to look to outside resources to deal with their dilemmas. Overweight? Take a pill. Bad relationship? Talk to Dr._____. Anxiety due to having no funds? Take a pill. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? The solution to any problem is never on the outside. ALL solutions to ALL problems reside withIN. The accumulation of constant, consistent actions lead to the results that you have. Want different results?--LOOK INWARD and make different choices.
I work in the health field and people are always in shock when I explain that it will take time to restore their health. After all, it took 25 years of poor eating, lack of movement and stress that has put them in the position they are in....it WILL take time and energy to restore and reclaim their life. But we live in what I call the 'Microwave Age'--meaning we want it now, we don't want to have to do anything to make it happen AND we want to have a loud buzzer go off when it's complete. COME ON!!
All great journeys....whether we are talking about health or success take a plan, time, repetition and commitment. Leave either of those four out of the equation and you are setting yourself up for failure.
Today...take a truthful look in the mirror (no B.S. here) BE 100% honest with yourself and find out what can you do different (cause) to create a different result (effect). You have one life and it is yours to live. You may as well create the effect that you want by causing it to happen consciously.
