Has anyone ever heard the story of the cow, the buffalo and the storm?
Let's start with the cow.
When a storm is brewing a cow can sense it coming in and will start to run in the opposite direction. As one would expect, the cow cannot possibly outrun the storm. What happens as they continue to run, is they end up running along with the storm. They have completely managed to maximize the pain, time and stress brought by that storm.
Enter the buffalo.
Buffalo wait for the storm to roll towards them and then they charge directly into it once it arrives. By running at the storm they run straight through it. Minimizing the amount of pain, time and stress they experience from that storm.
This is a great metaphor for all sorts of human experiences, but for our purposes here - if you haven't already guessed it - is that WINTER is the storm.
So the question to you is, if that storm is coming no matter what - do you want to be a cow or a buffalo?
LET'S WARM UP!
