The path to success is to take massive, determined action.
Happy Wellness Wednesday!!
Yesterday I spent the day at a Get Motivated Seminar. Have you ever been to one? In my opinion, it is amazing. For only $1.95, you get a ticket to hear some of the most influential speakers and celebrities you can think of. A few that I had the privaledge of hearing yesterday were Bill Cosby, Steve Forbes, Joe Montana, and Steve Wozniak. Last year when I went, I heard Rudy Giuliani, General Colin Powell, Terry Bradshaw and Dick Vitale, (plus a few others) speak about their paths to success.
So, what was the common theme that I heard throughout the day? No matter what your goal is, you need to take ACTION to make it happen.
It is funny because when I got married, my initials changed to ACT. I have always believed that God has put me, just like all of you, on this Earth to do something wonderful and make a difference. So, with my initials now ACT, combined with a passion and a desire to motivate, educate and inspire others to be the best they can be and achieve their goals, I am finally understanding what my true calling is and I am taking ACTION to make that happen through my website, YouTube channel, etc….
A second way that I am taking ACTION was by attending a School Board of Education Meeting. The discussion was about the new, federally mandated changes to our school lunch programs that will be implemented on July 1st. I really want to be a part of that change to make sure it is a positive one and help our kids eat healthier lunches. It is important to get them on the right nutritional track and make sure they have the food/feul to get through those long school days.
One interesting point that was made at the meeting was how the process of change will take a couple of years to complete. Lunches will come first (2012-2013) and breakfast will happen next year (2013-2014). So, one possible solution to help during the long process of change is to make sure the kids AND the parents are getting the education need to help them understand the new school lunch regulations as well as the basics of what is a healthy choice and what isn’t AND why. This education and knowledge can also be implemented by the parents in their homes, too, giving kids an even better chance at eating healthy meals all day.
A second solution is to do a complete overhall of the food program. Just watch an episode of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution show on TV and you will get an idea of what it takes to change a school lunch program and how it affects so many people in a positive way. I am sure that making the change isn’t easy but no one ever said change is easy right?
There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.
What does it take?
To accomplish your goal of a 5k… it takes ACTION!
To start that business you have always wanted to start… it takes ACTION!
To stand up and fight for our kids health and nutrition…it takes ACTION!
Be that person who makes a change.
Be that person that takes ACTION for what you believe in and make a difference to someone else today.
And don’t forget to thank God for your blessings, talents and gifts
