This morning I was watching Larry King and someone on the program said something that I want to share with you, it is very relevant to the theme of Discipline or Regret.

I would give credit to the person that said this on the show but I didn’t get to see their name; this is what was said;

“Your THOUGHTS become your WORDS, your words become your ACTIONS and your actions become your REALITY”

This got me thinking a lot, and I (and I am sure you can) could look back at my journey so far and it’s so true. The way that I have been thinking causes me to speak and then act, it doesn’t matter if it is positive or negative this principle can be applied to both.

With this we need to be aware of our thoughts and base them on something solid.  Something that I have been challenging myself with for a while not is not being ruled by my feelings, but basing my thoughts on timeless principles.  In the context of weight loss that would be the solid biological facts about how the body works and how I can use that to accomplish my fitness goals.

If I based my efforts on my feelings to lose weight then I would not have made it this far.  My feelings would have been based on passed failure, negative comments from others, and what box society has put me in.

We can’t be creatures that are habitually ruled by feelings, we need to be doers and risk takers; and then our feelings will follow.

That saying “If it feels good, do it” should be made redundant in our day and age, because those that follow it run away from things that make them uncomfortable, or gives them difficulties.

I heard someone say that 99% of mankind is afraid to take risks. This figure to me might be an exaggeration but I am sure that it’s not far off!

This week in I am doing a lot of thinking and pondering on this, what am I thinking? What am I dwelling on? How are my thoughts limiting my ability, and how is this effecting my family’s success.





I hope this helps someone, remember discipline or regret!

There’s a lot of truth to the idiom about the power of positive thinking. Getting yourself in the correct mindset to achieve a goal is the first all-important step.
