Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude” said Zig Ziglar. This is true is life and your health. Your aptitude – your natural ability, your genes, your knowledge, your resources, your health insurance, etc. – determines less about your health than your attitude. Establishing the right healthy attitudes about healing will take you far beyond the limits of your insurance coverage or your doctor’s diagnosis than you ever dreamed possible!
Attitude – “a settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something, typically one that is reflected in a person’s behavior.”
You may not be able to easily change your aptitude but the good news is that your ability to positively change of your attitude is limitless! Regarding your health, you may be stuck with bad insurance or no insurance. Your insurance may have been recently cancelled for not living up to unrealistic guidelines (Thanks Obamacare!). You may have a genetic health condition or a seemingly unbeatable diagnosis. However, it is your attitude towards these things will determine your ability to heal.
The world of health and wellness can be very confusing. However, when you have a better understanding of REAL health and wellness, you will have a lot more clarity. With this clear understanding, you will be able to know the difference between something that is truly healthy versus something that is simply a scam. Use this information to build real health and save your wallet from the fakes!
Your mindset affects every aspect of your well being, including your weight loss abilities. Maintaining a Wellness Mindset is vital to achieving wellness and maximizing the results of your weight loss. The thoughts you think have the ability to catapult you to success and amazing levels of wellness. However, your thoughts can also destroy your mindset, preventing you from ever reaching success in life and crippling your efforts to lose weight and achieve wellness. Your mental wellness is governed by your thought patterns, your self talk, your mental outlook, as well as your interpersonal relationships.

Walking out to my car this morning, I glimpsed a beautifully radiant orange glow that appeared to be emanating from underneath my vehicle. I looked up and caught sight a beautiful sunrise. I am sure that this video does not even do justice to the beauty, warmth and radiance that I experienced as I took a few minutes out of my morning to enjoy this sight.
Sunrise Through The Palmettos
I was reminded of how often we tend to go through our days oblivious to the beauty that is all around us. I happen to live in Florida and, I believe, I have the opportunity to view some amazingly beautiful sights every single day. However, as I took in this sight, hearing nothing other than the chirping of birds, and the occasional, soft rustling of the wind, my mental outlook began to change. I was uplifted. I was encouraged. I smiled.
I hope that today, regardless of where you live, you will pause for a moment and take in the beauty of God’s creation that is all around you! Our Father’s handiwork is amazing and beautiful to behold.
