What kind of life do you want to live? A normal life or an extraordinary life? To live a normal life, you need to think, feel and take actions on things that normal people do. However, if you want extraordinary, or to create something new or to do something that’s never been done before, then you need to reject normal.
What is normal these days? In Canada, the average Canadian is in financial debt, the divorce rate is over 50% and cancer and heart disease account for a large portion of health related deaths in Canada. Do we really want what is normal?
Let’s look at the way people currently take care of their health. They don’t exercise and move their bodies enough, eat poorly and don’t take preventative measures for their body. People are tired, overworked, stressed out and getting sick.
Eventually, if these poor habits are drawn out over time, chronic illness occurs. That is the new normal. What can you do to change this ‘normal’ future for yourself and your family?
Do what others do not do. Go and move your body, even if you have to get up earlier. Study nutrition and make the best food choices you can for you and your family. Seek help before you need help. Do the things that others do not do and you will have the life that others do not have.
Are your relationships in trouble? Turn off the tv, get off your phone, spend quality time with those you love. Make your relationship with others more important in your schedule than everything else. Focus on extraordinary relationships and that is what you will end up with.
To get what others do not have, you must do what other do not do. Others around you may try to convince you to be like them, but if you don’t like where that takes you, you need to be aware of that. Get a community of support people who you do want to be like and have them help you to novitiate.
Change can happen in a instant...committed change takes time. This is why we have our monthly workshops. We learn, grow and support each other along the process.
