When I was a teenager in Brazil, I was blessed with a trip to the U.S. as part of a team. We were attending a Christian camp in Alabama. Part of preparing myself to travel included exchanging our currency.

Now when I travel around the world, one of the first things I do is to grab hold of the local currency. The U.S. dollar, the euro and the Brazilian real are examples of currency. Without it, we can't really buy or pay for anything. Currency is the key to financing your way into a different country.

In a similar way, our health journey requires currency exchange.  

I used old currency when I started my journey. My currency was inactivity because I was a couch potato. I was a nice person yet activity was not part of my life. Inactivity was the currency I used daily. 

In order to go to a new place, I needed to use a different currency. I started to use activity as a currency. I could no longer use my old inactivity currency there. I had to exchange it for a new one.

Have you thought about the concept of using currency to get you where you want to go?
