What Are You Training For?
We are always training ourselves for life! What I mean by this is simple to understand if you think about it. Training simply means to do something over and over again until it becomes second nature to you.
So what are YOU an expert at because of your training over the years? Are you an expert at being at peace and laughing often, or are you more of an expert at judging and being angry, depressed or frustrated? What have you practiced? Are you more of an expert at deep and purposeful breathing or ignoring your breath? Have you been training your body to use its water freely to detoxify, heal and grow by drinking lots of clear, pure water? Or have you taught it to be very stingy and hold onto as much water as possible because you never really think about and therefore rarely drink water? Have you trained yourself to eat well or have you been on a junk-food marathon? Have you consistently gotten enough sleep to allow your Innate Intelligence to repair and rebuild your body during sleep each night or have you been conditioning your body to simply “exist” on as little sleep as possible?
There are many other factors to a healthy lifestyle and I will not cover them all here. The question to ask yourself here is simple. Have you been PURPOSEFULLY training yourself for health, happiness and success, or has your training happened by default – without your conscious participation? Here are some good questions to ask yourself in order to stay on the right track and begin training intentionally. Will this food clog me or cleanse me? Would I be willing to preach what I practice in each area of my life? What kind of world would this world be, if everyone lived just like me? Will my choices today be an example or a warning?
These are all great questions. The trick is to remember to ask them and then make the right decisions! You may have noticed that this is not an easy thing to do consistently. That is because most people are not using the parts of their brain that function at the highest level. You see, three things are necessary to stay in the highest centers of your brain and more easily make the right choices. You need a deliberate focus on moving TOWARD what you want, a healthy lifestyle that supplies your body with everything necessary to function properly, heal and grow, and you need a clear neurological connection. Many people have tried affirmations, positive thinking and have almost completely changed their lifestyles but have found that after a short time, they fell right back into their old habits (what they had trained themselves for previously). That is because without ALL THREE factors, you cannot stay in the higher brain centers. The one thing most people are missing is the clear neurological connection that seeing a chiropractor for REGULAR chiropractic care can give them. Remember, YOU ARE ALWAYS IN TRAINING. You wouldn’t work out, get physically fit and then say, “Boy, I’m glad I never have to work out again!” You must maintain ALL THREE factors throughout your entire lifetime – INCLUDING CHIROPRACTIC CARE to keep the connection between your brain and body CLEAR!
Look closely at your entire training regiment. Does it include all three of these factors? Make sure it does. And then, as you continue your life journey toward wholeness, you will realize what every massively healthy, happy and successful person has come to know…
THERE IS NO FINISH LINE!
