So, my eldest daughter had her 2nd birthday yesterday..
Doesn’t time fly, ay? It only feels like yesterday that I was sat in the birthing suite sipping my 13th coffee whilst rubbing Mrs Fruci’s back
in what can only be described as the moment I became EXTREMELY grateful for the fact I’m a guy…
but back to my daughter being 2…
it’s a reminder of just how precious time really is. After all, it’s the ONE resource that’s truly scarce in today’s crazy world.
So what can we do to not only live longer, but live longer with good health?
Well, researchers interviewed people aged between 90-100 years
Not only did they find that their mental health statuses were 5 times better than those in their 50s….
But they also found that they:
1) Had a good work ethic
2) A strong family bond
3) Positive thinking
4) Had a tendency to CONTROL
The researchers said they had:
“a tendency to control their environment”
and “care less about what others think.”
and my question to you is this:
Where do you need to focus more on what you can control?
You see, if you ask someone how their day has been…
I can guarantee they talk about things out of their control: The weather, traffic, BREXIT, road works…
And we all do it. Me included.
We stress about the things we can’t control. Waste all of our energy there.
And end up having no energy or willpower to control the things we CAN control…
Your food, exercise habits, thoughts about how you look / feel, confidence in yourself, patience with loved ones…
wasting more energy on regret…
Wishing you’d have kept up with your exercise habits years ago…
Wishing you’d have not ‘let yourself go.’
which actually solves NOTHING…
So, I guess the message here
Is that the FIRST step to change
To feeling more confident
a better version of you..
Is accepting where you are right now
and moving in the right direction each day…
After all, it’s not about how fast or slow you progress
But the DIRECTION you are going in
