Since the beginning of time men and women have been acting as is if they are a spectator in a game, frustrated if our team loses and happy if they win. But the truth is, we are not spectators, we are actually on the team. And paramount to our winning is our participation.
Taking responsibility is how you choose to respond being called to action. It is essential to any achievement that you wish to accomplish, especially if you want to experience better health.
If you are suffering from an illness, how have you chosen to respond? You owe it to yourself to find out all you can about your disease and then set out to make the necessary changes that will put your body in a position to heal, or just feel better.

When in truth we decide to sit in bed or in the lazy boy chair and drink beer and eat Doritos all day. We choose to put that cigarette to our mouth when we can’t walk a flight of stairs without having shortness of breath, it is our decision not to change our diet when we suffer from acid reflux, and the list goes on and on and on.
Nothing is ever going to change unless you decide to take responsibility, for your health. It will not be easy, forming new habits can take up to 250 days, but if you want to win, to feel better, to stick around a little longer it’s time to put your pom-poms down and get on the field.
