tips on life from the subway guy

Jared from Subway (remember him?) wrote a book! And some of the advice ain't half-bad:
  • As the saying goes, "Denial ain't just a river in Egypt." If you want to change your life, you have to face reality first. Take a good hard look in the mirror and admit that you have a problem.

  • In the beginning, don't try to do anything about your problem. Just admit that the problem exists.

  • Whatever your addiction is — food, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, spending, whatever — it is not your friend. For a long time you have turned to it for consolation and comfort, but it has not helped you in the past and it was not help you in the future.

  • Your problem might seem enormous and impossible to overcome, and that fills you with fear and anxiety. You're afraid to risk failure. You feel that if you fail, the people you know will reject you. Well, get over it. No one is watching your situation as closely as you are. If you're not willing to risk failure, you will never succeed.
