Why do some people get motivated to be healthy while others can’t? Watch this clip to learn the secret of lifelong health motivation.more »
When I was in college I received a failing grade on my first anatomy and physiology test. My professor, Gerard Tortora, took me aside and said simply, “Peter why did you fail? You’re smarter than this. Do better next time.” That was all it took to get me on track to graduating with honors and going on to my masters degree. I didn’t know it but professor Tortora wrote the A & P book most college students in this country learn from (see pic above).
Sometimes what we need most is someone to believe in us. To tell us, “hey, you can do this”. Whether or not you and I’ve met yet, I know you have someone special inside you. I know you can master your health and look and feel the way you’ve dreamed of. I hope as part of the Fit Friends’ Revolution you feel the support that Professor Tortora gave me many years ago and believe you can reach your health goals. Today, take 5 minutes to think about what makes you great. If you can’t come up with anything then contact me and I’ll help you figure it out in 5 minutes

To assure we succeed in health we must know what we want. Whether it’s losing 20 lbs, running a marathon, or preventing heart disease, the most successful people know what outcome they want and set a plan and time frame to get it. I designed the Fit Lifestyle Map above to assist you. Here’s how to assure your health success, otherwise we just keep going up and down on that roller coaster:
- Define your vision- what you want. Example- “I will ……… because ……….”
- Set a time frame. Example- “By may 1st I will be ……”
- Have a plan. Example- calories per day, training schedule, thought awareness
- Be accountable- get mentors who will hold you to your goals
- Have fun and acknowledge any success no matter how small
Reading this will remind you how much control you have over your food, exercise, thoughts and the direction of your life. I preach this everyday of my life and it still affected me in a profound, enlightening and reassuring way. I hope it does the same for you. You deserve to feed the right wolf.
A Cherokee Legend
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued,
“The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Try these strategies to feel better and create something to look forward to. This worked for me recently as I decided to write my third book: more »
