I scowled as I listened to the “Learn the Thai Language” cd that I found on eBay. This is one tough language! You not only have to learn difficult words with tongue-twisting sounds — but the pitch at which you say it can change the meaning of the word.
Maybe I’m too old to learn a new language, I fretted. Maybe I can’t do it. Can I do it? I don’t know! After a few days of dithering, I decided on a new mindset. “I’ll just go ahead and learn it,” I decided. “If it isn’t possible, I’ll find out.”
The uncertainty of success and possibility of failure — that’s what puts most people off from a weight loss and healthy eating plan. Why invest time and effort into something that might not succeed? The more often you have fallen off the wagon and regained the weight, the more hopeless a permanent weight loss appears.
But your body is ready to cooperate. You just have to get your mind in gear. Decide to go ahead and do it, and you will find that you can.
Now to go give my western tongue a good eastern workout!
Eating to live and living for Christ,
