When lunch time arrives your hunger has become urgent. Faced with a giant menu of nutritional time bombs there is no holding you back. You promptly slam down 1200 calories of something that resembles food but has little to no nutritional value in an effort to appease your body’s hunger demand and your dwindling energy.
Back at the office and work piled high, and stress higher, you begin the after lunch battle to stay awake and alert, focused and productive. You fight to keep your head up and your eyes open as your body diverts every ounce of energy to the task of converting your lunch for three into enough body fat to keep you alive in the wilderness for a week.
You arrive home exhausted, grab something to eat and promptly crash and spend the next few hours practically comatose in front of the television. This scenario is repeated day after day after day. Living like this is a slippery slope, a fast track that will spiral your health downward setting you up for premature aging and at risk of disease, maybe even one of the ‘big three’ villians heart disease, cancer or diabetes.
Look 20 or more years ahead in your life, and take a moment to think about what you are doing right today that is more important than your health, your future, your life. What could be more important than you? If you are chasing success how can you enjoy that success without your health? You don’t want to win the race only to die on the finish line do you? That is not a definition of success; that is sacrifice.
How do you reverse this trend and get back on a better path so you can look after your health? Well, first you need a change of attitude. Taking some time out each day to strengthen your body with strength training exercise is an investment in your most precious resource: you. When you are strong, healthy and alive with energy and vitality, you are more effective, more confident and more successful in all areas of your life.
You need to make some changes – it is time for you to change. The idea that you can swap your health and energy for success and achievement is a mistaken belief. Health and fitness success and career success are not competing goals. They are not two goals they are one. Do not even think you can sacrifice your health and fitness for your success, as without your health what do you have?
Resolve to take some time each week just two to three hours to get a proper exercise program established in your life. Seek the help of a fitness professional to help you do this and to get it right. Do not waste time on activities that are not going to get you results such as long, slow, steady state activities like walking, jogging or cycling. Your program need to be mainly strength training exercise and one or two interval training sessions for effective and fast results.
You will benefit from this immediately with a reduction in stress levels and a new calm focus will take its place. Physical work will rejuvenate and empower you and your business will benefit as you develop a stronger more energized body and mind. When your monetary, business and life goals are more in sync with your physical strength you may find you will be even more successful.
Whenever you attempt to trade your health and energy for success, you are really only sacrificing yourself in the long term. This has a cost on everyone, especially you and your family. You don’t really want that do you? Make the decision to change today. You must make your life easier by getting your priorities fixed for your timely meals and timely exercises.
