Healthy Habits #3

by Rod Smith

Healthy Habits for a Fabulous Week #3

Know, state what you want

Clarify what you want using very few words. Revise and study it. Don’t write what you want for your children, spouse, or your parents. That’s a copout. Develop a statement of what you want for you. This is neither selfish nor indulgent. It’s about self-awareness. It is a lack of self awareness that results in selfishness and indulgence. Besides, how will ever know if you have what you want and are doing what you want if you don’t know what it is?

Just for today:

  • Know what you want.

  • Steer your life towards it in ever-increasing measures.

  • Try to refuse the things that will derail you from what you want.

Be careful. I am not suggesting you do not meet your already-established commitments or avoid participation in the common pool of human tasks required of all. We can do all those things and pursue what we want.

Here’s mine – for today:

I want to communicate by all possible means that people can live healthy, powerful, effective lives and be a strong an effective parent, generous brother, and a positively contributing member of a local community.
