Sacrificing Health

The greatest mistake a man can make is to sacrifice health for any other advantage.

~ Arthur Schopenhauer

I made this mistake myself. I understand. I thought for a long time, that as long as I was successful in my career, I would always be rewarded with riches, fame, security, and self-worth. I didn’t see anything else around me (family, friends, play activities, or hobbies). I was too busy with important things (work). I had to be the best, the brightest, the fastest, and the smartest. In my youth, these were needed and rewarded. They were survival mechanisms. As an adult, I worked myself into a frenzy and burned out early. It no longer works for me today.

Today’s Life Coach Action Plan: Just for today, what can I let go of today that is causing me pain and ill health? Let go…just one day.
