Healthy Beginnings

Publisher’s Letter | June 2014

Dawn-Gowery-Publisher-Healthy-Beginnings-MagazineI ran across this saying as I was going through a box of office papers. Obviously, I had written it down years ago while I was staying at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. I was attending an Integrative Health Conference at the time. I have no idea who wrote it, as I did not write down the author’s name, yet the message struck a heartfelt chord. As I read it now, some seven years later, I realize how important and how true this statement is to our emotional, intellectual, intuitive, physical, social and spiritual wellbeing.

“The greatest competition you will ever have is the competition between your disciplined and undisciplined mind. You must constantly study, understand and immense yourself in that which brings you value and power and avoid at all costs anything that weakens you.”

How true, where the mind goes the man follows. So, from time to time ask yourself, “where am I going and why am I going there?” Reflection is a good thing; it allows us to rethink our steps. What brings you value and confidence, and what weakens you?
