Batman has enemies like the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler, Two-Face, and Mr. Freeze.
Superman has an enemy in Lex Luther.
Optimus Prime has an enemy named Megatron.
With all those enemies we still look at Batman, Superman, and Optimus Prime as the hero.
Why? Because they are the enemies of all the bad guys I named.
Batman isn’t a victim to the Joker. Batman is an enemy of the Joker. Superman is the enemy of Lex Luther.
Really, there is a point to this. Really, I’m not a giant comic book nerd. Really, I don’t watch cartoons anymore.
|Public Enemy. Yeah Booooyyyyy!!|
When it comes to your health, we fall into the trap of becoming a victim to our condition, diagnosis, or ailment. When we become victim to it, we lose power. We lose hope. We lose our identity.
Our doctor’s don’t help any either. They label you with a problem (that’s their job) and then they recommend a treatment attempting to limit the effects of that problem. The goal is disease or condition modification, not health promotion.
Health promotion is the enemy of your condition. Health promotion is the enemy of your diagnosis. The only one that can be that enemy is you.
You were born and still possess the most amazing, innate, genetic intelligence to have energy, have vitality, and give a big middle finger to disease. You are pre-disposed to health. You’re not the victim. You’re the hero…every time.
Heroes all have one thing in common. They take action. They take action in the face of fear. They take action in the face of uncertainty. They take action even if they don’t know the outcome. Heroes get beaten down but they always get back up.
To be the hero of health and enemy of disease, you have to fight for it. You’re going to have to get pissed off at the status quo. You’re going to have to accept you’ll be ridiculed, sometimes by the most important people in your life. You’re going to a have to get creative. You’re going to have to seek council.
