 There is only one master formula for life and that is to love life.

A successful life is not measured by how much money you have, how big your house is, what type of car you drive, the clothes you wear, how many goals you have achieved, who you are in a relationship with, if you are single or married, or what others think of you.

To measure the success of your life, measure only how much you love life. You may have everything in the world, and much more than you may ever need, but if you do not love life, you might as well have nothing. In the same way, you may possess nothing in the physical world, but if you love life, you have everything.

You don't get to choose how you're going to die, or when but you can decide how you're going to live now.  

Life can be full of joy and satisfaction. You can have peace of mind, improved health and an ever-increasing flow of energy. The saddest words you can ever utter are, “If only I had my life to live over again".

Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.  

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.  

You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him to find it within himself.

 The Most profitable Investment Of Your Life! Is to invest in your health.

 Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.  

 Money is the most envied, but the least enjoyed. Health is the most enjoyed, but the least envied.

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.

 If rich people could buy better health (not better doctors or medical treatment, but better health), then wouldn't it seem that wealthier people would be living longer instead dying from cancer, heart attacks and other degenerative diseases.

 Health is not just the absence of disease or illness, it is the presence of vitality. It is the lifelong process of prevention and commitment to wellness.

Our health is the single most important thing we own. It makes all of our other possessions immaterial and worthless to us if we are too sick to enjoy them because our health has failed.

The ultimate game on this wonderful planet earth is the game of life, only the healthiest and the fittest will survive and win.

The longest journey may begin with a single step but it does not have to be a lonely journey, health and happiness can be yours.

Youth poem By: Samuel Ullman

Youth is not a time of life - it is a state of mind,  it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees;  it is a matter of the will,  quality of the imagination,  it is the freshness of the deep springs of life. it is a temper of the will,  a quality of the imagination,  a vigour of the emotions,  a predominance of courage over timidity,  of the appetite for adventure over love of ease.

Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old only by deserting their ideals. Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, doubt, self-distrust, fear and despair - these are the long, long years that bow the head and turn the growing spirit back to dust.

Whether you are eighteen or eighty, there is in every being's heart the love of wonder, the sweet amazement at the stars and star like things and thoughts, the undaunted challenge of events, the unfailing childlike appetite for what is to come next, and the joy and the game of life.

You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear, as young as your hope, as old as your despair. When the wires are all down and all the innermost core of your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism,

then you are grown old indeed. But so long as your heart receives messages of beauty, cheer, courage, grandeur and power from the earth, from man and from the Infinite, so long you are young.  

que sera sera
