It is not our preferences that cause problems but our attachment to them.
We all want to grow and improve our well being and our lives, but few of us want to do the hard work, and have the discipline, that is necessary for us to change and become healthier. You need to commit to following a successful vision and experience what is uncomfortable because that is the only way to self-mastery and self-improvement.
No matter how difficult the past, you can always begin again today.
Your first obligation in this lifetime is to maintain and improve your physical condition. Your second obligation is to become more successful. Then you can fulfill your obligations to your friends, loved ones, and the greater community. If you do not radically prioritize your existence for your health then you use up your strength for money. Then when you lose your health you have nothing because you cannot maintain your existence and all you finances will be spent on attempting to restore your wellbeing. First application of this thesis is to do some stretching. This cost you nothing but some time and discipline. Next you must stop procrastinating about losing some weight, seeing a doctor for a check up and blood test, sleeping more soundly, exercising, and improving your nutrition. Satoru
