An ex­am­ple to in­spire

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - SPORT - Stacey Al­dous

YOU only get one shot — are you go­ing to give up, give in or give it all you’ve got?

The Fight MND/Big Freeze AFL match at the MCG, rais­ing money for re­search into mo­tor neu­rone dis­ease, has been in the news a lot in the past cou­ple of weeks in the lead- up to Mon­day’s event.

The amaz­ing Neale Dani­her, a for­mer AFL star who has fallen vic­tim to MND, has de­liv­ered many speeches to nu­mer­ous groups, with a voice that has be­come in­creas­ingly frail as his MND pro­gresses.

His aim is to get us to un­der­stand that de­spite what cards we have been dealt in life, at the end of the day, we still have the free­dom to choose our at­ti­tude: “You can give up, give in or give it all you’ve got!”

This ap­plies to life in gen­eral, but let’s look at it from a health and well­be­ing per­spec­tive. Once we have made a de­ci­sion to change our life­style, whether it be from an ex­er­cise or nutri­tion point of view, or hope­fully both, we of­ten see changes hap­pen quite quickly.

We are mo­ti­vated and com­mit­ted at the start.
