Thought for the Weekend

"The past is not your potential. In any hour you can choose to liberate the future." - Marilyn Ferguson

Most people think of the past in terms of long ago or even a week or day ago but by definition the past is as recent as a second ago.

When your goal is to lose weight or get fit you're going to slip from time to time. You might eat a larger portion than planned or eat dessert when you didn't plan for it. You might miss a workout, sometimes for a perfectly good reason. When this happens it's quite common to figure that you've blown it and since you've blown it you might as well REALLY blow it and finish out the day, or week, or month..... This is how some really great make over plans end all too quickly. You are allowing that slip to become your potential.

If this happens to you I challenge you to think in terms of the slip up as "the past" and refuse to allow it to determine your potential. Put the past, where it belongs - in the past - and move on with your plan. Or if your plan needs to be changed then by all means change it to something more suitable. But whatever you do don't allow a slip that is in the past a second after it occurs to pull you off course! Something to think about.
