In simplest terms, I take this to mean that you are only as stupid as your actions. And your actions are the one thing you actually have control over. It’s the reason so many people create new year’s resolutions—to give them some sense of control in their lives.
New year’s resolutions are really just goals you set for yourself at the start of a new year, and they very frequently center around health. When talking about health, most people will tend to focus on their physical health, but health can also refer to the general well-being of your: mind, spirit, business, staff, finances, relationships, sales, productivity, etc.

Tomorrow is the first day of a new month. Approach it with the same resolve and enthusiasm as the beginning of a new year. And keep reminding yourself: Healthy is as healthy does!
