It seems everywhere I turn there is a new miracle product. You name the vice, then there is some "miracle product" that can help you overcome it. Smoking, weight loss, fitness, the list goes on. When people tout these products, I think they may be missing something. The product itself is not the miracle! It may be a catalyst that gets you started, but it is not the miracle. The miracle is your mind! Your mind has decided to help you change habits that were NOT working for you into habits that DO work for you-for example weight loss success depends on eating less food and exercising. Just like Dorothy and the Ruby slippers, this ability to change existed all along. It just needed to be exposed. Don't get me wrong: "miracle products" can help but the primary miracle in any positive change is your mind.
