The secret of change
'The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.'
I love this. Socrates nailed it! Why waste one more second obsessing, worrying or feeling guilty about what has been happening? How can that possibly be useful?
What if you put all that energy into thinking about what TO DO, what TO EAT, how you want to live your life? Instead of what not to do...
I've always encouraged people to focus on the positive steps. Obsessing on what you 'shouldn't' do - like going on restrictive diets - is just giving yourself another roadblock to building the new.
Yesterday is history. Don't look back, you're not going that way! Today and tomorrow you get new choices. What will you do with that opportunity?
