Greek slave turned philosopher, Epictetus (55 - 135 A.D.) once claimed, 'Don't explain your philosophy. Embody it.' I like that. As it's fairly obvious, I'd say: That we tend to have a LOT more respect for the person who actually LIVES the lifestyle he espouses. Rather than he who just, 'talks a good game.' I can tell you from experience: Epictetus' action-oriented approach truly DOES work.
For how could I advise someone to, 'drop that junk-food?' To eat nothing but plants - most of 'em raw? To exercise 'like mad?' And to throw out his TV?! If I hadn't done these things myself. Go with Epictetus' style, I say. In short: More action. Less talk! You'll look into the mirror with pride, each night. Garner friends who TRULY respect you. And, I wager: Become known as, 'He Who Walks The Walk.'
No unneeded banter, required.
P.S. Speaking of 'walking the walk.' Why not start doing that - right now? Visit my Amazon page and learn EXACTLY how I transformed myself from a middle aged, out of shape, fast food addict - into a healthy eating fitness 'machine.' The process is TOTALLY simple. And since I've done it myself (and trained thousands of others to do so). I have ABSOLUTE confidence: I can teach you to do the same.
All it takes is a bit of guts on your part. About a half-hour daily (for tough exercise). And a willingness to streamline that diet of yours. Visit me now. Learn to transform yourself. Once and for all! That way: When friends admire your new physique. And ask: 'Are you REALLY as fit as a pro-athlete?' You'll be able to respond with a resounding, 'Yes!' And, more importantly: Back it up. See: http://www.amazon.com/Jeff-Sekerak/e/B015W954XG/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_2?qid=1444280178&sr=8-2
