Cassandre the Magnificent

For those of you non-NSers and those NSers who don't read the Daily Dose, I'd like to share this past Friday's Dose with you. I got chills when I read it the first time, and still do. I feel as though it perfectly encompasses my desires and new attitude toward my weight loss journey.

Mediocre or Magnificent?
It's time for you to make a choice. You can either settle for a life of mediocrity or make the decision to go for magnificent! Let's face it: mediocrity is oftentimes "comfortable." In fact, many of us often only aspire to a state of lifelong averageness. But imagine recruiting all 118 billion brain cells in an effort to move from average to AMAZING!
But you have to make the decision to change. Think about it: what could you change about your life right now, today? Think big. How do you want to feel, look, and experience your life? All personal greatness begins with change, and all great change is fueled by having a great reason to do so. It has been said that most people know what to do, but few people do what they know. Why not? Because they have yet to find compelling enough reasons to change.
So you need to find those reasons to change. To do so, here are some questions to ask yourself:
When you look around your life right now, do you like what you see?
When you view yourself objectively, are you inspired?
Are you energetic and strong?
Does your body reflect health and confidence?
Are your relationships honest and supportive?
Are you happy with the direction of your life?
If your life were soon to be over, would you feel that you had fully realized your purpose and potential?
This weekend, use your answers to ignite your spirit and to finally find the power to change. Use them to cross from where you are presently to where you ultimately want to be, and to keep you on track during the challenges that weekends tend to bring.
The power to make your life better is within you. It may seem elusive, and it may sometimes feel like it is too late, but the truth is that you truly do have the power to manifest your wildest dreams and desires. You've had that power within yourself all along!
The secret lies in finding reasons to change—and taking action once and for all.
I want to be MAGNIFICENT!!!
