In today's world, there are millions of people who aim to convince us that what they say about becoming a healthier individual is true. What if many of these statements were myths? Here is a look at 4 common misconceptions of the health and fitness industry.

#1 Exercise cancels out bad eating habits. Many people have been told that poor eating habits can be erased with exercise. However, diet accounts for about 80% of your body's health and look.

Solomon tells us how we can embrace criticism and use it to better ourselves.

Criticism is Better Than Secret Love

Solomon talks about criticism as "secret love." In Proverbs 27:5 he states, "Open rebuke is better than secret love."

I know, that's difficult to imagine right? If you can take criticism and apply it, your success is limitless.
