The video is about looking within and truly examing what is is that you want to do with your life. Many people are spending their life doing a job, just to make money, or in a career because someone else either needed them to take over the family business or thought they would be good at it.

Health is a Decision

Good Health or Bad Health is your decision. Contrary to what we would like to think, illness and disease does not just happen. It is the result of what we do.

1. REDUCE STRESS - No excuses, just do it. Look at the things you think about. Eliminate some of them that are not serving you well.

As Andy Andrews states in his latest book, THE NOTICER, the character, Jones, tells Walker, a character who is moving through life with little purpose, that "smart people get tripped up with worry and fear." He goes on to say:

40% of all worries are about things that will never happen anyway

30% of all worries are about things that have already happened

12% of all worries have to do with needless imaginings about our health

10% of all worries are petty-little-nothing worries about what other people think.

8% are legitimate concerns

2. EXERCISE - Put it on your daily schedule just like brushing your teeth. You do brush your teeth, right? There are some things you do everyday, include some exercise. There will be more ideas in an upcoming One Step Ahead.

3. EAT A QUALITY DIET - Besides eating protein, good carbohydrates, and good fat, eliminate white flour, white sugar, and soft drinks, for starters.

4. SUPPLEMENT YOUR DIET WITH NUTRIENTS - At the very least, take digestible vitamins, minerals, and quality water. Keep your ph level slightly alkali.

Since you are in CONTROL, you can PAY NOW or PAY LATER.

What that means is that you can choose to be healthy now, or you can spend a lot of time, and money, while experiencing the pain of a diseased body later.

Our second website is that of the Richard Chang. Richard has devoted his live to helping people find their PASSION.

PASSION by Richard Chang

In The Passion Plan Model™, Dr. Chang presents seven simple steps to discovering the things you really care about, deciding where you want them to take you, and developing a plan to get you there. When followed by individuals, this plan leads to greater personal and professional fulfillment. When followed by organizations, it provides direction and improves performance at all levels.

So what's Next - TAKE ONE STEP AHEAD

2. Let go of being "right" and mend a relationship.

3. Apply or ask about a promotion, find a new job that suits you better, or start a new business.

4. Make a Decision! Is there something you have been putting off.

5. Plan a Vacation with your loved ones.
