Do you know what percent of our body is water? We BEGIN life as a fetus at 99%. When we are born, it drops to about 90%. Then the average human body settles in around 70%.
So, from a simple physical perspective, we are all made up of mostly water!
Let me ask you a simple question - if you had a choice to drink from a body of water, which would you prefer - a river or a pond? Why?
Water in a river remains pure because it is moving, and it is generally agreed that the quicker it is moving, the more pure it is. When water is stagnating, trapped, or immobile, what happens? It collects a lot of crap and becomes polluted. Right?
So, what is the message we all can learn from good old H2O?
That it is critical for us to continue moving fast and forward if we are interested in improving. Otherwise we could be in danger of becoming idle, polluted, and turn into garbage. It is interesting to note that as children, we are expected to grow and improve every year mentally, physically and emotionally. This is why we have different grades in school and have to improve each year to continue on.
Then we graduate college and what happens to most people? Personal growth stops or slows down drastically. The unfortunate thing is when we stop growing, we don’t stay the same. We actually start to move backwards year after year.
What are you doing to improve every day in your F5 (Faith, Family Friends, Fitness and Finance)? Are you reacting to life or are you attacking it?
Let’s all make a commitment to keep in action, keep moving, changing, flowing - mentally, physically, and emotionally. It is going to help purify who we are. Let’s choose not to turn into crap. Let’s choose to continue to become more pure!
Be sure and drink lots of water since 70% of our body is made up of it and we don’t want it just sitting in our bodies stagnant like a dirty pond - purge the old and replenish with new fresh clean water every day. How much water do you drink each day now? I have a goal of drinking 100 ounces of water every day. No, not soda, beer or wine…100 ounces of water. I challenge all of you to do the same.
