I wanted to discuss one very important one today regarding passive health.
This is the idea that health just happens naturally without any effort.
PASSIVE HEALTH IS A MYTH.
Think about the word "passive".
Webster`s defines the word passive as "inactive."
Achieving health takes planning and effort.
Health is the combination of knowledge, strategy and execution.
The words we use to describe our experiences become the experience.
One of the most powerful determinants of our life is the words we use and what we say to our self.
If we are in pursuit of passive anything, what do you think the message is to our brain?
How can I do nothing and get a bunch?
How can I be inactive and get healthy?
How can I do the least and get the most?
There is no such thing as passive health.
Passive health turns into disease eventually.
The goal should be active health- actively working to learn and implement the recommendations that best serve our health before we have symptoms and evidence of disease.
With the concept of passive health,the thought relayed to your brain is that by doing nothing towards achieving health, I can have what I want and feel great without working for it.
So most people spend their time looking for something that doesn`t exist, and therefore, wind up with nothing.
Success in any endeavor requires you to be active and engaged.
Nothing you want is attained by being passive, including health.
The seductive siren`s song of "passive" health is one of the reasons so few people have the health and well being they want.
Rethink your goal and how you can achieve it.
Do not depend on the powers that be to provide this for you.
Learn how to be your own healer and care for yourself.
"In 20 years you will be more disappointed by what you didn't do than by what you did." Mark Twain
