The Trees Are The Forest

When walking through life, it is often easy to let the little the little things crowd you in, to cause you to just sort of get lost in it all.

You find yourself going through the motions, reacting to what comes, but in all the daily details your life just sort of gets buried.

The good and the bad news is that your life is your own making. It is the sum total of all your choices ... but more importantantly your ACTIONS.

Your life is your forest. The trees are the daily things that happen. How beautiful or ugly they are is directly related to the decisions you make and the actions you take.

In other words, the daily details ARE YOUR LIFE.

Those daily details that you're getting lost in ... it's because YOU MADE THEM HAPPEN!
Look around at your forest (your life). Is it what you want? Are you living the life you wished for as a child?

If not, why not? If you could, what would you change?

Having a different life is as simple as making different choices ... and more importantly, taking different actions.

If you keep making the same choices and keep doing the same things then your life is going to stay the same.

If you begin to make different choices and take different actions then your life will change.
The power of this is profound, but truly understanding it can be challenging.

What I'm saying is that your life is yours for the making. From this point onward, you can make your life anything you desire, or you can make it dull, boring, and monotonous. Figure out what it is you desire, then decide what decisions and actions it will take to get it.

What it means to your love life

If you're struggling to find the person that is right for you, do you even know what kind of person you want? The decisions you are making about how you dress and how you act will directly influence who you attract.

Who are you making eye contact with? Who are you spending your time lookin at? Are they REALLY the kind of people you want in your life or just the kind of people you are immediately attracted to.

So, the first thing to decide is WHAT KIND OF PERSON DO YOU WANT? What kind of job do they have, what are their basic interests (loves the outdoors, likes to stay home ... be very basic about what you want here), how do they dress, how do you want them to treat you.
Now, once you figre out what it is you want honestly sit down and consider what kind of person will they be attracted to LONG TERM. If you're a woman, don't fall into the trap of thinking that revealing clothes will automatically attract every kind of man. While it is true that revealing clothes and a flirtatious attitude will get you NOTICED AND LOOKED AT ... it is not true that every kind of man will ask that kind of woman out (unless they want a one night stand) let alone continue a sustained relationship.

So, the actions that you take will directly govern who you attract.

What it means to your health

Do you have the body you want? Take a look at the foods you eat and the exercise you get for the reson why.

Seriously, none of this is difficult. If you decide to eat a hug helping of ice cream every day while sitting in front of the TV for two or three hours you're probably not going to have an athletic physique.

You don't need fancy diet plans, expensive pills (only a few of which actually work any way), or even starvation diets.

You need to eat good foods most of the time, have junk food occasionally (perhaps once a week), and exercise a couple of times a week

In other words, good decisions and good actions get you good results.

Whether we're talking about your health, your love life, or even the money in your bank account.
