I was talking to a guy the other day who blacked out. He was rushed to the Dr. and soon found out that his blood pressure was extremely high and his cholesterol was up. Of course they prescribed him medication. I asked him what was he going to do differently. He said take the medicine. I said how long are you going to take the medication. He said I will be taking it for the rest of my life I guess.
I asked what are you going to do differently aside from the medication. He said nothing. I asked, you never considered altering your diet so that you can lower and maintain your blood pressure and cholesterol level?
He said, “I don't eat fruits and I don't eat vegetables and never have.” I asked him have you tried all fruits and veggies. He said it doesn't matter, I won't eat them. I don't like the way they feel in my mouth.
Yes, this really happened yall.
Here is what I want to pass on to you. You sometimes need to examine the things that you do. You need to evaluate how much sense it makes or doesn't make. You need to analyze what motivates you to do some of the things that you do. Sometimes you have to be an adult and be more open minded, creative, reasonable, adventurous or just be more responsible and use common sense about the choices that you make.
You can't get far in life happy, healthy and financially free if you just do things for small minded reasons and don't even try to find ways to improve your habits and lifestyle. If you see that there is something you are doing that is working against you, be open to finding ways to make some changes to get yourself back on track. That is true with your diet, your finances, your relationships and your other goals.
