We know what we know, we know what we don’t know. We don’t know what we know (subconscious beliefs and habits), and we don’t know what we don’t know. Much of the information carried in the unconscious or subconscious mind is often not recognized by the conscious mind. Our values become one of those beliefs that are buried within the subconscious.

Incrementalism – the small changes that occur over time without the mind recognizing that change has occurred. Without awareness of change we become oblivious to the downward spiral that takes place within the body. No one feels cholesterol building up in the blood vessels. Sometimes the first awareness that takes place is a heart attach or a stroke.

No one can motivate you to change except you! Success boils down to intrinsic, internal motivation. Intrinsic motivation comes from within. Many believe that you only have to make a mental decision in order for something to happen. If it is only mental, only intellectual, then the chances of success are slim. Just because you know how, and know you should, doesn't mean you will. If you're not ready nothing will happen.

The trilogy of Body, Mind and Spirit is like a three legged stool. Each leg of the stool must be the exact length, for balance to take place. If one leg becomes shorter the cup will tip and the contents will spill over the side. So, it goes with us as individuals. If we spend excessive time on the Body, then we must borrow a little time from the Mind and Spirit in order to accomplish that task. ...
