By persisting in your path, though you forfeit the little, you gain the great. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Congratulations on taking the first step of YOUR well-being journey!

This campaign (and blog) is all about YOU and finding what motivates you to become healthier – physically, emotionally, socially, financially, intellectually, and spiritually – and to discover a complete sense of well-being. 

In life, we all have our own story, and we follow a path that is tailor made for us, by us. Your individual journey can be influenced by others, but no one else has the power to define your journey for you. Because of this, it is up to YOU to create a greater sense of well-being for yourself.

So, how do you do this?

External motivation might work for a little while, but to truly be successful, you will need to identify the intrinsic motivation that will keep you moving forward regardless of where you start and what your end goal might be. It will keep you going because it is always with you – in you.

Think about what motivates YOU. Search beyond the external motivators and the road-blocks you may see and, instead, find what empowers you. What DRIVES you? Is it your children, grandchildren, health, longevity … we want to know!
