9 years ago this day, mid-morning, I smoked my last cigarette.
This was when everything changed for me.
9 years ago this very hour, I made a DECISION, to be healthy.
Where we are now, all of us here, today, is the end result SO FAR of me making that one decision. MND, this whole blog, the public seminars I deliver, the videos, the MND Members Community, it’s all come from that one firm DECISION.
The root of the word decision comes from the same root as incision – to cut.
Decision, to CUT OFF any other POSSIBILITY.
I decided, 9 years ago, to change my internal belief about who I am. I decided that I am a healthy person. I didn’t say “I want to be” I said “I am healthy” – I walked out of the room, pulled my cigarettes from my pocket, screwed them up and threw them in the bin.
I cut off any other possibility. I didn’t leave the option open “But what if I change my mind, what if I fail, then I’ll have to buy another pack?” or “But this is 6 quid’s worth of fags here, it’s a waste, I’ll finish this pack then stop.” NO. I decided I am a healthy person, and I quit, on the spot, and have never wanted one since.
Previously, I had tried quitting 100 times, but always failed, lasting between and hour and a year, but always went back.
But that day I DECIDED. And it was done. I changed my identity. I became a healthy person, and through that paradigm, I now see the world, MY world. Healthy people don’t smoke, so I don’t smoke.
From that day, everything changed.
I was not the person I am now. I was fat, lacked confidence, I was shy, uncomfortable around women, I was quieter, afraid of public speaking, never revealed any of my own flesh, I was unfit, unhealthy, covered in rash, I was tired, not bouncy.
That one decision changed everything about my life.
It changed who I am.
What is your identity?
Who are you?
How do you want the world to see you?
What DECISION have you been putting off?
MAKE that decision, commit to yourself, BE the person you want to be in your heart. NOW.
Do it now. Do it today. Don’t procrastinate any longer. Become the best version of yourself that you can be.
We’re here to help, we’ve got your back, MND is looking after you.
Decide. Do it NOW.
