Dare to Live without Limits

 Your well-being should be a priority

Your mental and physical well-being should be your priority.  It is not selfish to take care of yourself.  Neglecting your well-being is detrimental.  Your suffering helps no one.  Your world is not OK unless you are OK.  You have to be OK yourself before you can help others.

Reset each day to realize opportunities before you

 A sailor sets course based on where he wants to go, not where he is coming from.  The important consideration is his current location.  Course adjustments are made from this current location in order to reach a specific destination.  Yesterday’s route is over and done with.   

 The same is true with your life.  The decisions you make today determine where you go.  Each day is a new opportunity to make course adjustments.  Each day is truly a new beginning.  Why waste it being negative.  Each new day is a perfect opportunity to reset your attitude.  Yet it's common for people to carry negative emotions and attitudes from one day to the next.  We are conditioned to carry over negatives from one day to the next.

As tired as you are, don't  give in to weariness

 When you become weary your enthusiasm drops, your resolve is diminished, and the option of giving up becomes more appealing.  In short, you don't want to take another step.  If you give into weariness, you risk losing all the progress you have already made. 

 The following examples illustrate what happens when a person gives into weariness.  Let's first look at Roger, a college student just starting the second half of his senior year.  To pay for his education, Roger has been working while going to school since he was a freshman.   Needless to say, Roger is weary from working and attending school for over three years.  He is now being offered a substantial promotion at work.
