Make a Decision

It’s Time to Make a Decision

By: Dr. Peggy Malone

“The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want.” – Ben Stein

Last week we dug in and clarified your ‘Why’. Why do you want to be healthier? Why do you want to make a change in your current health and wellness reality?

Once you have established your ‘Why’, the next step on your journey to healthier and happier is to make the decision to do what needs to be done to get you there.

Well that doesn’t seem so hard does it?

For many people, this is difficult. They won’t commit to making one decision to do whatever it takes to get them to their goal.

“The greatest accomplishment began as a decision once made and often a difficult one.” ― Michael Rawls

Most people think that in order to be healthier, they need to change:

  • What they eat and drink.
  • How they move their bodies (exercise.)
  • How they manage stress.
  • The amount of toxins that they are exposed to.
  • Their bad habits.

And yes… these things are important but not nearly as important as changing one vital thing…


Your mindset is 90% of the reason for your success or failure.

“In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Many people are presented with an opportunity to make a change in their health and instead of making a decision to act, they get overwhelmed and just continue doing what they have always done.

Make a decision to take action, to do something different than you have done before.

(Because what you’ve been doing up until now hasn’t got you to where you want to be!)

So change your mind. Make a decision right here right now that you will make the necessary changes to get healthy!

You are worth it!

Once you have made the decision to do whatever it takes… the next step is to make a plan. We will get to that in next week’s newsletter… stay tuned.

Until then…

Live Well,
