Good Health Is Already in YouMay 23, 2022
Faced with a block of marble and a vision, the famous Italian sculptor Michelangelo said:
“Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it. I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”
The first time I heard this statement it brought me to tears. To this day I am moved to my core when I stop to reflect on it. I think about us- you, me, the woman I met after one of my presentations who confessed her battle with food and resulting poor health.
We are all such brilliant human beings, with power and potential far beyond our wildest imaginations.
We all have a statue inside of us just busting at the seams to be revealed. What does yours look like? Come on, I know you see it. You can visualize it so clearly because it’s already in you. It is you.
So what’s holding you back from chiseling away at the stone you’ve allowed to form over your magnificence?
- Is it too difficult? Give it a little elbow grease! You can do it…because you’ve done it before. What was it that lit the fire under your butt last time?
- Are you afraid? Consider the advice of Susan Jeffers (which also happens to be the title of her internationally renowned book): Feel the fear and do it anyway! Once you take that first scary step, you realize the fear was totally unfounded; a phantom you created in your mind, perhaps to keep you small?
On playing it small, Michelangelo offered these wise words:
"The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it."
It all begins with a choice. Just one single choice. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just higher than before. So you ate pizza for dinner last night. Who cares?! What will you choose to eat today, for your very next meal?
Now get to chiseling, you magnificent creator…and set yourself free!
