Never give up! Persistence is to success what copper is to steel (Napolean Hill). Funny thing that in a world where media tends to make success look like it happened over night and this only fuels our instant gratification desires and moreover encourages giving up, or letting go or moving to greener pastures long before we should. Here’s the deal, I have been exercising and eating clean and well religiously for nearly 30 years-I have persisted thru macrobiotics, veganism and gluten- free conscious omnivorism all in the name of moving towards greater awareness and vitality. I have done Ironman, body building, vinyasa flow yoga, Crossfit and intervals ’til the cows came home! Which eating and exercise plan worked? All of them…they all worked because I used each of them to teach me about my larger vision and goal of being awake and as awesome as I can be and the power of persistence is the thread that is woven thru each of these plans, disciplines and philosophies. The deal is that if you want to be happy, healthy, sexy, successful, strong, a contributor and at peace then you need to decide that each and every day you will resist the temptation to give up at taking the best care of yourself. Rather deciding to make adjustments, deepen, cultivate and persist at becoming a more alive you-the joy is in the journey-stick to it!
Peace and love, James
