The Secret To Living A Happy, Healthy and Longer Life.

5 Apr

Do you like secrets?  Most people do.  I’m not talking about that dvd/book, The Secret.  No… not even close to that.

But first, let’s define what a secret is.  Basically, a secret is something someone else doesn’t know.  So, secrets can be good, bad, or neither.  They can be information that changes someone’s life or just worthless trivia.

In this case, this secret is something that has the potential to change your life.

So, what is this big secret?

Let’s start with a quote from the late, great, Jim Rohn:

“You must take personal responsibility.  You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.  That is something you have charge of.”

That, in a nutshell, is the secret to living a happy, healthy, and long life.

There is no doubt that taking 100% personal responsibility for EVERYTHING in your life is the most positive and life altering thing you can ever do.  It is also the most difficult.

We live in an era of almost ZERO personal responsibility.

People sue because the coffee is too hot.  They blame the credit card company for what they bought.  They blame the junk food maker because what they stuffed in their mouth made them overweight and sick.

The minute you take total responsibility for everything in your life, your life will change.

The minute you take total responsibility for your health, you will become healthier. Because health comes from the small decisions you make every day, the small actions you take every day, the right foods you eat every day, and the exercise you do every day.

Jim Rohn also said, “Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event.  You don’t fail overnight.  Instead, failure is a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.”

You become what you repeat every day.  If your life is not what you want it to be, then stop repeating what you are doing.

Do start repeating something that makes you happy, healthy, and live longer.
