If life is all about CHOICES, why do some people choose to make poor choices, even when they know better?
I asked this question to my 14-year old grandson like this, "If you know that soda is bad for you, why would you CHOOSE to drink it anyway?" His answer, "Because sometimes I get a craving for it, and I just want to drink it."
At 14 years of age, I can understand this logic. But what about at age 24, 34, 44, etc?
My friend is a nutritionist and she told me that it always amazes her at how people are resistant to change. She simply shakes her head because the problem is; FOOD is linked to our emotions. Most people who hear her speak, truly need her help. And yet, they resist what she teaches about nutrition.
I suggested to her that to be truly successful at what she does, she will need to find the people that find value in what she does and how it will add value to their life.
If most people are truly resistant to change, then, isn't it a choice that keep us from our goals?
The bottom line is this, we can educate people as to WHY they should take better care of their health, invest in themselves to be more successful (find a mentor, read more books, go back to school, etc.), but until they understand the value of these opportunities, our words will fall on deaf ears.
But the truth of the matter is, whatever choices you make today, will affect you tomorrow, next week, next year and 5 years from now. The food choices you make will affect your health, the exercise choices you make will effect your body, the financial choices you make will affect your wealth, and so on.
So, keeping this in mind, what CHOICES are you making today to improve your health, value your "self" and increase your wealth? OR, what CHOICES are you making today that will put your health at risk, decrease the value you place on your "self" or even keep you from earning the wealth you need to create the lifestyle of your dreams?
Remember; Life Is All About Choices!
