No, it was not a mistake. I intended to use the word weigh. Let me explain. Dealing with your weight is one of the best success training methods ever! Think about it. You have more control over the factors related to your weight than in any other area of your life. That means it is the perfect opportunity to engage in a success plan, see and experience results, and build your success confidence. If weight is not an issue, you can substitute increasing physical strength. Either way, you will boost your success confidence while learning effective methods and principles you can use in whatever else you want to achieve.
The Importance of Keeping Score
Scores put you in the game. Can you imagine any game without scores? It would certainly be no fun, and you would never know how you were doing or what you needed to do to win. Also important is accurate and soon after feedback so you can evaluate the effectiveness of your actions. Unlike a car fuel tank that immediately overflows when you over-fill it, eating excess calories gives no immediate feedback. The results of over-eating are only noticeable over time with gradual weight gain. This delay in feedback is true in pursuing many goals in life. To increase your success, learn to identify and keep written scores.
