My good friend and one of the world’s leading healthy living experts, Yuri, sent out a recent newsletter that I just loved, so I am sharing it with you today. You might have seen him on Dr. Oz last week and heard about his new book, Eating For Energy. We are on the same page when it comes to how to fuel our bodies.

Here is his post. Enjoy!

“I have to thank my wife Amy for giving me this breakthrough…

For years, I used to tell my clients to find something outside of themselves that would give them a big enough reason to improve their situation/body/diet, etc…

Don’t do it for you…do it for your kids – as an example.

And though that might still make sense to some, Amy made me realize something far more profound…

You have to do it for YOU!

You are the one who deserves better.

You have to put yourself on a pedestal and hold yourself with such high esteem and self-worth that anything other than the best can no longer be accepted.

I couldn’t agree more.

And I want you to believe that with every fibre in your body.

Why should you settle for mediocre or “good enough”?

Why should you accept things the way they are?

Why not defy the odds, shatter the status quo, and break through to new possibilities?

You don’t need to be accept your present body, health, or energy as the best it’s going to be.

It’s probably great already but there’s always room for improvement.

You deserve better.

You CAN make the rest of your life the best of your life.

But here’s the catch…

You have to do something about it.

You can’t just hope or manifest a healthier body into existence.

You have to make it your vision and then take the action that will get you there.

My role in this equation is quite simple…

I’m simply a sherpa showing you how to summit your own Mt. Everest as simply and effectively as possible…

To help you avoid the dangerous pitfalls and to speed your ascent to the top.

I’ve “metaphorically” climbed the mountain many times over the past 14 years and have guided thousands of others to the peak.

Why struggle trying to find your own path? Why put your body and life at risk?

I’m here to help you…

All you have to do is take my hand.

Don’t settle for a life stuck at base camp.

You deserve to be on top of the mountain with me and thousands of others who are living a truly amazing life…

A life filled with energy…abundant health…and happiness.

Life is amazing.

And it can always be better.

If you’ve been feeling down and out, then let this be your call to action to stand up and claim what’s rightfully yours!

You deserve AMAZING!”

Thanks, Yuri, for such great words. It is great to be motivated by your kids or other external factors, but at a deep level you should want to do it just for you, because YOU deserve to be extremely happy and healthy.
