I have always loved the idea of The Golden Rule, that is, do unto others as you would want others to do unto you, ever since my grandpa first taught it to me as a six year-old. My grandfather was physically and literally wealthy, so the idea of being spiritually wealthy through employment of The Golden Rule simply made sense to me. I attributed his success to that of The Golden Rule and took it to heart.
I asked myself yesterday, after conversation with my friend Stephanie, about how The Golden Rule would work towards our bodies. Stephanie has recently had some great weight loss success and I asked her what her secret was; her answer? She said, “everyday you just have to ask yourself how well do you want to treat yourself that day.” I love everything about her answer for it is the question of whether or not we are willing to live out The Golden Rule towards our bodies and ourselves.
It’s common knowledge that we say things to ourselves, harsh and critical things, that we would never utter out-loud to others. I challenge you today to engage your PMA, that is, your positive mental attitude, and to equip yourself with The Golden Rule all the time…not just towards others but more importantly, towards yourself as well.
