Ø Gaining weight is easy; there’s no thought process to it. The less you think about your weight the more you gain. And in no time!
Ø With many "things" in life there is NO maybe; it’s either yes or no. Plain and simple. Either you want to live healthier or you don’t. Either you want to exercise or you don’t. Shit or get off the pot!
Ø You can’t MAKE someone else do something that you want done (or you think that they need to get done). People don’t respond well to someone forcing them to do something. You get better results by ASKING them to do it. So why would you FORCE YOURSELF to do something and expect a positive response? Just saying…
Ø The saying “failure is not an option” is bullshit (IMO). Failures happen all the time-it’s a fact of life. Just like losing, just like “quitting”-IT HAPPENS! Best learn from the failure/mistake/set back/loss/whatever and push forward. The saying should be “Dwelling on the failure/loss/set back/mistake is NOT an option!”
Ø Expectations have a tendency (again, IMO) of getting set too high. It’s wonderful to expect great things of yourself and others “because I’ve worked so hard for this or that” but it isn’t always as easy as that. Life (and people) often get in the way sometimes. Besides, I can only expect MYSELF to do the best I can (I can’t make someone else set their “bar higher”) and be more understanding of the fact that I am ME and you are YOU.
Ø Not every “conflict” needs to be “addressed and resolved”. Some “battles” aren’t worth fighting. Sometimes, it’s best to keep my mouth shut, my head down, and “get’r done”!
