I'm all for flexibility and if you want long term success there has to be flexibility. However, you also need to be honest with yourself and take responsibility! Once you do that you can correct or improve on weaknesses so that you can look how you want, feel how you want, and live a healthy balanced lifestyle.

As motivational speaker and best-selling author, Jack Canfield says: 'Take 100 per cent responsibility for everything in your life.' That includes all the wee stories we keep telling ourselves.
