Colonels in Control

What is a Colonel in Control?

A Colonel in Control is someone who has a firm a grasp on their eight dimensions of wellness.  This person can stare temptation in the face and make positive decisions for his/her healthy lifestyle in all situations.  When faced with tough choices we should all think how we can make appropriate decisions to guide us on a path to success.

Every time you exhibit one of these behaviors, take a picture and Instagram it, or put it on Twitter with the #ColonelsInControl.  We want to see Colonels in action!
