Be Your Own Driver – by contributing author Carolyn O’Byrne
Be your own driver
I want you to discover the drive within you so that you can be your own driver. The driver of your life, that is. Have you found yourself off-course in any area of your life, such as difficult relationships, health issues, anger management, or weight control?
I have a secret to tell you that many people don’t realize: You have been created with a massive amount of power. This power is the drive that allows you to be in total control of how you react or respond to life. Whether it is physical or emotional, you have the choice. You can make the best or the worst out of every situation.
Whatever challenges are in your life, like anger, relationships, health, or weight, every single aspect of your life takes drive. This drive comes from the same source and is the fuel to explore and discover true health.
By educating yourself, you will discover the fact that the health of your gut affects the health of your whole body. Your gut not only determines how you utilize nutrition, it feeds and promotes the health of every cell in your body. It is the basis of your immune system. Also, your gut produces the majority of the feel-good chemicals that your brain uses to keep you feeling peaceful and joyful. When they are working right and in the right amounts, there will be no depression or anxiety.
We can possess all the things we desire, but without health, what do we have? Our food industry has driven us in a direction that is for profit and not for health. Hippocrates once said, “Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food.” Does this mean eat your medicine for nutrition? No! It means the food we eat needs to be nutritious enough to keep us healthy so we will not have disease.
Our bodies are designed to thrive on natural foods, not synthetic. Our bodies have no idea what to do with this man-made stuff, so they stop running correctly. Keep this in mind when it is time to eat, and make a nutritious plan. You can do it.
Nothing matters if you don’t have your health. You can’t effectively do your job without good health. You can’t enjoy your family and friends if your health is compromised.
By choosing to give all of your newfound energy to your drive, and make it an important part of your life, you will go places that you never thought possible, you will do things that you never thought you would ever do, and you will experience things that you’ve only imagined.
Take control and be your own driver.
