Day 64 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} The Right Kind of Pain

We must all suffer one of two things:  the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.
~Jim Rohn

Day 64 - 90

If the above quote is true (and I think it is), I then have to ask myself the following question,

What kind of pain am I currently experiencing in my life, ThE pAiN Of DiSciPLiNe OR the pain of regret/disappointment?

Today I am pondering this question in the following areas:

  1. PeRsOnAL
  2. ReLaTiOnShipS
  3. FiNaNcEs
  4. PrOfEsSiOnAL
  5. SpiRiTUaL

Must admit, I am experiencing the pain of disappointment and regret in some of those areas.  TiMe To Do BeTtEr.  And I will do this intentionally by reflecting and then making the necessary adjustments.

Lesson Learned:  Pain isn’t always a bad thing if you are experiencing the RiGhT KiNd Of PaiN.

Day 37 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} Who Are Your Mentors?

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
~Jim Rohn

Day 37 - 90

So, if you are the average of the FiVe PeOpLe you spend the most time with, what kind of person are you?  Do you like the person you have become?

That’s a deep question, I know, but it is definitely worth taking the time to think about.  What kind of people do you HaNg OuT WiTh?  Are they people you aspire to be like?  Do they challenge you to do better than you are doing and go further than you are going?

If you’ve been reading my 1% Change {90-Day Challenge}, you may have noticed that I talk about My MeNtOrS from time to time.  These are individuals that in many ways are living the life that I want to live.  They have a vast amount of wisdom.  And because they are further down the road than I am, their input is of utmost importance.

I remember when I first read Jack Canfield (author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series) talk about the importance of mentors in his book The Success Principles.  It stirred in me the desire to have mentors of my own.  I didn’t have any mentors at the time, and really didn’t know who even to ask.  So I UsEd tHe ReSoUrCeS I HaD and enlisted mentors whose material I could read, watch, or listen to.  People like John C. Maxwell, who although they didn’t know me, were passing on their wisdom and experience.

That was a few years ago and today I now have a handful of personal mentors, but it all began by using what I had.

Who are your mentors?  Maybe the first question to ask is, “What kind of person do you AsPiRe To BeCoMe?”  Once you know that question, then you can find the mentor that best fits and begin to learn from them.

It really is true.  You become like the people you spend your time with.  So ChOoSe WiSeLy.  🙂

Day 23 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} Get Understanding


You must take personal responsibility.  You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.  That is something you have charge of.
~Jim Rohn

Day 23 - 90

Today is a fresh start.  And I have a BriGhT OutLooK.  🙂

I’m at a conference, in Atlanta, where I am becoming a Certified Human Behavior Consultant by one of mentors, Dr. Robert A. Rohm.

One of the things that I have heard Dr. Rohm say over and over is, “AbOvE aLL eLsE, get understanding.”  This training is teaching us how to UndeRsTaNd OuRseLvEs aNd OtHers.  I’m hoping I can use this incredible wisdom and apply it to Peace with Food.

As I think about this statement, “Above all else, get understanding.”, I realize that HeReIn LiEs tHe SeCrEt to Peace with Food – Get Understanding.  Until you understand yourself and your relationship to food, your body, the scale, and your thoughts on this subject, as well as how to Follow Peace, you can never experience Peace with Food.  It really is that simple.

I have come to learn that the more understanding I have, the more peace I have.
