Wednesday Wellness: Rear View Mirror

Today, I was asked a question: “If in 30 years from now you were in the same shape you are today, would you be happy?” How about, “If 20 years ago you saw the shape you are in today, would you be happy”?

I am fortunate enough to answer “yes” to both of these questions!  But, it’s not luck; it took and will continue to take work, every day, every week, every year.  The payoff is well worth it.  No question.

20 years ago I was trying hard to get in shape, but trying all the wrong ways.  I was fortunate enough to persevere and find the right way to get in shape…the healthy way and a way which would “stick” about 12 years ago.

As you ask yourself these questions, it’s obvious you can’t do anything about the past, but you can make sure that 20 and 30 years from now, you can look in the rear view mirror and be proud that you made consistent and committed decisions for your health and well being so that you are either in BETTER shape than you are today, or in the same shape as you are right here in the moment you are reading this.

If you need to make some changes, what are you waiting for?  Do you think the laws of health, fitness, weight loss and energy are going to shift differently from what science has proven over the last few centuries?

If you love where you are at today, how can you create an environment in order to maintain what you’ve worked so hard for?

We do this in our financial portfolios, but rarely do we consider our future when it comes to our bodies.  Our health is an investment few of us prioritize.

Give this some thought this week and look down the road way ahead of you, but glance in the rear view too.  See what you’ve created in this moment and decide if this is where you want to be for your future.

As you might have read somewhere….Because your body is the coolest thing you will ever own!
