A complete physical, mental and social well-being – not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Is that truly what health is?  I tend to agree with the World Health Organization. I spoke about this in the previous episode, briefly, when I was talking about our #WorkOnWellness goals.

Wellness is physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, and I would agree to throw in social as a part of that. I do think the absence of disease is also a major part of health, personally. But that isn’t what the World Health Organization said. They said it’s not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.

I think infirmity in itself is probably the lowest of these areas that affects health. There are many people with infirmities that although that infirmity may be physical, it doesn’t necessarily affect their health. They can be in great physical heath, probably better than me and many of you. They have great mental health. They have taken their adversity, their infirmity, and turned it into a positive, driving force in their success. Their infirmity has made them stronger, wiser, more mentally healthy than most of us.

That is especially true about people like Tanner Gers. I am working on getting Tanner on our show for an interview. Tanner has an amazing story about how he didn’t let the infirmity he has stop him from being a healthy, thriving, successful person. These are the amazing stories that prove the point the W.H.O. made. So I would agree with the W.H.O.

The WHO is not part of the 3 Keys to Goal Setting Success, nor am I talking about the great rock band, The Who. They are a success in themselves. I love their music. I wish I could have seen their shows when I was younger, although I hear they still put on a great show.

They play great music. I hope I play great advice and inspiration on my show. Remember, health is about a complete physical, mental and social well-being. To be healthy doesn’t mean we are just free of disease and infirmity.

Let’s #WorkOnWellness, work on good health this year.
