It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.
– Sir Edmund Hillary
Yes, facts are important. It’s what you do with the facts. How you act as a result. How you let them influence your life. These are more important than the facts themselves.
Let’s look at some facts. Your age. Your weight. Your income. Your love life. Your job. Take a moment to think about each of these. What comes to mind. How do you feel. What are you saying to yourself.
If you are not happy about a fact, what will you do next. Are you going to sit down and drink a few beers. Eat a bag of potato chips. Feel sorry for yourself. Or are you going to rise up and keep going. Take action.
Vibrant Living Tip: When you are faced with a fact that has, up until now, caused you some angst make a decision to do something different. Go outside and sit in the sun. Walk barefoot on the beach. Read a book for fun. Find something to enjoy. And be grateful IN all things. See how this changes how you feel about the facts. And more importantly, how you respond as a result. Do something fun today!
