This is a question I asked myself often during the first years after being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis.

I thought I was doing everything I could do to recover, I followed the doctors advice and took the medications. I also tried various supplements which at first were unsuccessful.

Truly I thought I was doing all I could, yet no recovery was happeniing.

My story ends happily, I got lucky as you have discovered if you've read through this web site. I now realize how lucky I was because even after a year of not needing the medications I was still doing so little compared to all I could have been doing for my health.

Even today there is so much more I could do......and I admit I become more motivated as each year passes.

I would like to share with everyone a story that was sent to me. The author is unknown so I can't give credit to the author or ask permission to post. I am simply hoping that if the author of this story should come across it here they will contact me and I will thank them and request permission. Now on to the story.

“One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big NOTICE on the door which read......
'Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this Company has passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym'.

In the beginning, they all felt sad for the death of one of their Colleagues, but after a while they started getting curious to know who was that man who hindered the growth of his colleagues and the company itself.

The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowd within the room.

The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up.

Everyone thought: 'Who is this guy who was hindering my progress? Well, At least he died!'.

One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when They looked inside it they suddenly became speechless. They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul.

There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside it could see himself.

There was also a sign next to the mirror that said: 'There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth: It is YOU.

You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the Only person who can influence your happiness, your realization and your Success. You are the only person who can help yourself.

Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends Change, when your parents change, when your partner changes, when your Company changes. Your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond Your limiting beliefs, when you realize that you are the only one Responsible for your life.

'The most important relationship you can have is the one you have with Yourself'

Examine yourself, watch yourself. Don't be afraid of difficulties, Impossibilities and losses: be a winner, build yourself and your Reality.

The world is like a mirror: it gives back to anyone the reflection of The thoughts in which one has strongly believed.

The world and your reality are like mirrors laying in a coffin, which Show to any individual the death of his divine capability to imagine and Create his happiness and his success.

It's the way you face Life that makes the difference.”

I hope you enjoyed this story, as I did and it inspires you into action.

Knowledge is a wonderful thing that is TOTALLY WASTED if not put into practice.

Have a great day everyone, and I challenge you to nurture your own body, the rewards can be shocking.
