When you get hungry, chew a couple of almonds,and wash down with a cool tall glass of water. It fools your belly every time.


The End or the Beginning?

This is the time of year when school ends. The celebration is Graduation or is it Commencement?

I graduated from college in 1954. I had been drafted but the start time in the US Army was deferred until I graduated. I graduated, got married, drafted, had basic and advanced training, shipped oversea to Japan and got my wife pregnant. Oh, I went AWOL one weekend of Basic Training to do that little job. Was the last Half of 1954 the end or the beginning of my commencement?

Two teachers answered that question for me and changed my life forever. Ethel Reno, my third-grade teacher taught me a bunch, but I will always say three words she demanded that I always use and do. “DO IT NOW”.

I had great college teachers, but Prof Hall changed my life forever. He taught me to be a great public speaker and debater. Every time I did good, he said “NOW DO IT BETTER”. These five words have given me direction from the beginning and ending of every day since. I BETTER DO IT NOW. NOW DO IT BETTER.

“You’ve got to follow your passion. You’ve got to figure what it is you love-who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dreams” - Oprah Winfrey.

If you are not happy with what you are doing right now, here is my advice.  If what you do right

now, after giving it your full effort for at least 18 months, is not making you happy. QUIT and go do something else. Since 1954 I have been in at least 16 different businesses.

Steve Jobs’ famous commencement speech at Stanford University in 2005 when Jobs encouraged the students to peruse the path they really love. “Your work is going to fill large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you will know when you find it.  And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So, keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

If you are just a kid or over 60 find your passion. It will make your heart sing. Your passion is not a hobby or a fad. It is intense. You will want to share it with others. I inform, educate and inspire by writing and talking. My talk is called MY STORY.

HAVE A HAPPY HEALTHY LIFE

 


WHY CAN'T I GET HAPPY AND HEALTHY

  DEPENDING ON THE  INSTANT  GRATIFICATION DIET AND MAGIC FORMULAS  GAME IS A SHORT TERM FIX.

BEING HAPPY AND HEALTHY IS A  SLOW CONSISTENT CHANGE IN LIFESTYLE.

ARE YOU READY TO DRINK WATER AND NO SUGAR DRINKS. I WAS NOT .EVERY DAY I DRANK A LITTLE MORE WATER AND LESS AND LESS SUGAR DRINKS.  IN ABOUT FOUR MONTH I WAS CLEAN AND NOW DRINK LOTS OF WATER AND ZERO SUGAR DRINKS.

I CALL THIS' "WA"

FOOD IS NECESSARY FUEL TO KEEP THE BODY ALIVE. I EAT AT LEAST SEVEN  OR MORE FRESH OR FRESH FROZEN FRUITS, VEGGIES AND NUTS EVERY DAY. I EAT LESS OTHER FOOD ALL THE TIME. I CALL THIS "FO"

WAFO

OUR BODY MUST KEEP IN MOTION OR IT SHUTS DOWN. I WALK EVERY DAY TO KEEP IN MOTION. I CALL THIS"WA". 

SMARTPHONE NEEDS BE RECHARGED. EVERY NIGHT OUR BODY NEED TO SHUT DOW AND GET SOME SLEEP. I CALL THIS "SL" 

I STARTED WAFO WASL ON JUNE 12 2006. IT IS SIMPLE. IT WORKS FOR ME. MY BLOOD PRESSURE WAS AS HIGH AS 204/105.  NOW BP IS UNDER CONTROL WITH A COUPLE LITTLE PILLS.. MY WEIGHT WAS AS HIGH AS 254., NOW THE WEIGHT IS BETWEEN 145 AND 150. I HAVE NOT MISSED A DAY OF WALKING BRISKLY AND AVERAGE 8743 STEPS PER DAY SINCE JUNE 12, 2006.

MY PASSION IS THAT YOU HAVE A HAPPY HEALTHY LIFE

IF I CAN YOU CAN 

 WAFO WASL 


Be satisfied with Happy and Healthy living.

 

 

 

Recently a famous speaker said, “always be dissatisfied”. I disagree. All of us were born dissatisfied – scared and dumb. Somewhere between getting born and now, most of us changed our minds or it got changed for us. Staying unhappy and dissatisfied does not lead to being happy and healthy. Abe Lincoln said we must make up our mind to be happy. That is a fundamental.

  Fundamentals do not come naturally, they are taught.  The alphabet, arithmetic- chemistry- languages – and even Happy Healthy Living.

I enjoy basketball and Michael Jordan is one of my favorites. He said “The day you get away from doing the fundamentals, the bottom falls out”.  That is when you get dissatisfied. We do not need to stay dissatisfied.

Our body needs only two fuels to survive – water and food. Those two are Fundamentals. I call them WAFO.

 Now if you get away from the fundamentals, your bottom may fall out, you might get to be a humongous blob, or worse.

Our body must perform just two functions – motion and sleep. There are so many choices to get in motion. Golf, dancing, tennis, hiking. The list goes on forever. I chose to walk every day.

Every day our SMARTPHONE loses its OOMPH and must be recharged.  Same thing, our body needs to shut down and get sleep. The Health gurus recommend 6 to eight hours of sleep a day.

 I call these two functions WASL.

WAFO WASL is my passion. It is the fundamental requirement for a Happy Healthy Life. I read-research-write- blog -speak – and live the WAFO WASL .

There is less dissatisfaction of health conditions around the word today more than ever before. There is cleaner water and more healthy  food. Education is getting out there.big time about bad drugs and  modified  food . We are making progress, but still there is a very long way to go.  Sickness, illness, and chronic disease is slowly but surely being replaced by happy healthy living.

But the USA is losing the battle of Sugar Diabetes  type 2. Health Experts say a major cause is Obesity. These experts also say a major cause of Obesity is consumption of sugar drinks.  Start drinking a little more water and less sugar drinks, then a lot more water and a lot less sugar drinks and then lots of water and no sugar drinks. This is a smart way to solve the problem.

I am satisfied we are making progress.  Dissatisfied people do not solve the problems well or very often.

 HAPPY PEOPLE DO

 Here are Five fundamental words that get us from Sickness, Illness, and Chronic Disease to

Happy Healthy Living

Say them aloud. Now do what they say.  It works for me.

I BETTER DO IT NOW

DO IT NOW

NOW DO IT BETTER

HAVE A HAPPY HEALTHY DAY
