The lotus is the most beautiful flower, petals opening one by one. However, it will only grow in the mud. In order for you to become the change you envision for yourself, first you must have the mud — the obstacles and the suffering. 

Successful change happens when you work the right way. The way to achieve your goals is to look in the mirror, dive into the mud, and rise up new. But that takes time. No miracle pills, no crazy diets, no doctor. It’s  YOU!  A mindset, an ethic, consistency and a respect for yourself and to what you ingest.

You must have the intention to change, to grow like a lotus and open each petal one by one.
