I remember my father giving me a button when I was young. It was an old-fashioned metal button, the kind of button with a straight pin on the back. The words were white on a red, orange background. The button read something very similar to Better. Because you want to be.™ I remember attaching the button to the middle of my wooden bedroom door. At night, I would close my bedroom door lay in bed, and read this positive daily reminder. I feel like these words kept me from getting sick. These words gave me willpower and motivated me to exercise and work out regularly.
To this day, this saying means so much to me. Not only does it remind me of my dad, but it has also had a long-lasting positive impact on my life. Better. Because you want to be™, motivates me to practice Tai Chi. It helps me to be better.
