Tips and Pearls of Wisdom

Right behavior begets right behavior
Tolerance does not equal permission
Thoughts = emotions = feelings = action
Never eat your exercise
Slow and steady wins the race
Whether you can or you can’t, you are probably right
Happiness shared is happiness increased; Grief shared is grief decreased
Paying it forward pays it back
Celebrate your plateaus
Wake up every day with purpose
Go to bed every night with gratitude
Out of sight, out of mind
Don’t rely on will power
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail
If it’s not written, it’s not realized
Never drink calories
Empower yourself not your surgery
It's okay to disengage
You can't have it both ways
Tomorrow never comes
Omit 'if' and 'still' and 'try' out of vocabulary
Negativity and positivity are both contagious
Don’t give up what you want most for what you want now
Nothing tastes as good as healthy
NEVER empower anyone by giving control of your feelings away.
Stay in the range
If you want to roll, become a ball
If you can fathom it, you can do it.
You can do anything for one minute
