THE CHOICE IS YOURS

 

 

IMG_0550Experts say that between 80% and 90 % of everything we do is by habit

.  We are born with no habits,

and our care givers choose our habits for us, and a lot of those habits never change.

Some people never move, change political parties, religion, and are content to choose someone else to make choices for them.

One of those habits is smoking cigarettes. They cause people to die and it practically says that on the label. Some people chose to smoke, get cancer and die. Those folks chose to let others make a poor choice available to them.

Everything happens because we made a choice.

On June 12, 2006, I made a choice to be healthy. Why? I talk to myself and on that day said “If I keep on drinking and eating like I am right now, I will be dead in 5 years.”

I am a data guy. I track how many steps I walk every day, then. walking every day became a habit. I have walked every day since. A couple years later I drank a little more water and a little less sugar drink. I started to tweak my habit with a lot more water and a lot less sugar drink. Today, I drink no sugar drinks.

It is a habit

 Our body requires food. We are losing the battle of sugar diabetes type 2. and it is mostly caused by obesity. Obesity is caused by sugar drinks

Sugar is a drug and the choice is ours to quit or chose not to quit.

I put another habit into play. I chose to eat six or more fresh or fast frozen fruits and veggies and nuts before noon every day. The combination of lots of water and fresh fruits and veggies slowly changed my way of eating. I eat slower, more often and chose smaller servings. It is a series of newly formed habits.

This has been a series of very simple, doable choices, that started very slowly, then just took off. This called the Compound Effect.A best seller The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy has been a part of this journey since November 8th, 2011. This is the fourth reread.

 Tracking steps daily is a habit. Today it is done on a smartwatch that wasn’t around in 2006.  The  daily average is almost 8000 steps daily, but still under 10,000 steps a day. I am not there yet. A daily routine of healthy habits is all that separates the old me from what I am today. If I can you can choose to

             BEE HEALTHY AND HAPPY

YOU CAN DO IT


THE COMPOUND EFFECT IS POWERFUL

GET TWO TO WAFO & WASL

 

IMG_0550COMPOUNDING  IS THE EIGHT WONDER OF THE WORLD ACCORDING TO EINSTEIN

JUNE 12, 2006  I ASKED ME THIS QUESTION.

IF YOU KEEP EATING, DRINKING WALKING AND SLEEPING LIKE YOU ARE NOW  WHERE WILL YOU  BE IN 5 YEARS?

I WILL BE DEAD - WHAT  COULD I DO TO FIX IT ?

I WILL WALK AND NAME CANTON THE WALKING CAPITAL OF TEXAS

THE FIRST HOUR EVERY DAY I PRAY READ THINK AND DREAM BIG DREAMS 

I WALK EVERY DAY

GET 2 TO DO WHAT I DO

 

 TWO  THEN 8 THEN 16 THEN 32 THEN 64 IN A TOWN OF LESS THAN FOUR THOUSAND PEOPLE.

ONE MORNING LAST FALL I LEFT THE GYM AT 7 AM -WHERE OVER 23 WERE LEAVING OR ARRIVING  - SAW 4 WALKERS WITH FLIGHTS IN THERE HATS WALKING DOGS - AND AS I  CUT THRU THE CROSS-FIT PARKING LOT - SAW 17 CARS THEN  PAST THE CHURCH PARKING LOT WITH 6 CARS AND DID HOUR WALK IN THE PARK 14 MORE CARS BEFORE I HEADED HOME. 

THAT IS 64 WALKERS. THERE ARE AT LEAST 128 WALKERS AND RUNNERS OUT AND ABOUT  EVERY DAY IN  TOWN OF LESS THAN 4000 PEOPLE.

DO WHAT WE DO 30 TIMES AND THAT IS OVER 6 MILLION. THAT IS THE POWER OF COMPOUNDING

I RECOMMEND GETTING AND PONDERING THIS BOOK

TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR BRAIN

BEEFITBOB AND THE HAPPY HEALTHY TIP OF THE DAY

 

Brain-clipart-4-illustration-by-seamartini-graphics-image-0

The thing on the top of everybody is the Noggin, the location of the greatest computer in the world, called the BRAIN.

 

The brain responds to the five senses, Sound, Sight, Smell, Taste, and Touch.

the-five-senses

This big fat mussel we call the brain will take in all the data of what, how, and why we do what we do. It will read the emotions of fear, jealousy, greed, anger, and all other negative thoughts. It will also take in   love, forgiveness and all other positive thoughts. From all that input we respond and do it very fast.

Once you memorize and do stuff like ABC’s, foreign language, driving a car, I mean everything it then becomes a habit.

The brain is a lazy dude. Once something becomes a habit the brain does not want you to change. It hates anything new, any change. If you are hooked on a habit you are addicted. If it is a good habit that is a good thing, if a bad habit that is a bad thing.

I am addicted to walking, that is a good thing.
