There’s a great song by Eric Clapton that he wrote for the 1986 movie “The Color of Money,” starring Paul Newman and Tom Cruise. The song is entitled “It’s In The Way That You Use It” and it’s about two pool hustlers and how they use their talents to scam others. It seems that the title is also appropriate for our general health and wellness, too. We may not have the ideal height, weight, genetic make up, or body type and that’s okay. What it really comes down to is how we use what we do have today so that we can enjoy the best health possible tomorrow. Or as Eric Clapton sings, “It’s In The Way That You Use It.”
We have all heard countless stories of the triumph of the human spirit despite incredible odds. Those individuals don’t let handicaps, bad luck, or tragedy prevent them from reaching their goals. They take what they have and create success. The same philosophy can be applied to any of us. Why should we let anything stop us from looking and feeling good? What it really comes down to is using each day to benefit our health. Taking one step at a time in the right direction versus throwing obstacles in our path. Obstacles such as excuses, distractions, laziness, and frustrations that give us “reasons” to not use what we have to make ourselves the best version possible.
