Great article!
I believe that our state of mind (consciousness) is always much more important than any action we could take. If we are negative we are vibrating at a low level of consciousness, so any action we take from that level will be tainted with that negativity. And if we are positive we will bring that joy to the task at hand and a bad result is an impossiblity.
"Success" can still be achieved through sheer determinism, will power and intense competition but if the state of the persons mind was laced with negativity and stress during the process the outcome will also tainted by this energy. Is this true success? Don't let a mad world tell you that success is anything other than a successful present moment. When you are grounded in the present moment you vibrate at a higher frequency which will attract better circumstances in the "future".

I am currently working with morbidly obese people in a weight loss surgery clinic as a registered dietitian and ACSM personal trainer. The information in this article is a great topic of discussion for our support group forum; especially because so many people we encounter have negated their wants and desires for years and years. Thank you for the article.

EXCELLENT article, our society is so focused on the physical aspect of health that we tend to forget about the emotional and spiritual side which is ultimately where it begins.

This is a truly enlightening article and hits home 'Hard' for me and I'm sure for so many others. I have been competing against myself for years and it can really keep you from life's progressions. Can't wait to read the referred books mentioned in your article.

Thank You,
