Let's face it: In this day and age, thanks to all the genetically processed sh*t that's out there, it's more important than ever to stay on point. We've all heard the term “health is wealth,” and it's the truth.
Being fit will have you at the top of your game. It's vital that you have a strong grip on your health because it can directly affect your ability to make power moves. Making proper food choices and taking the best gym selfies in the mirror to show off your “gains” are both important in the grand scheme of your well-being.
Here are three ways being healthy can increase your wealth:
1. It keeps you mentally sharp.
The clarity that comes from better health choices can improve the ideas you come up with. Your execution also becomes masterful.
It is proven that being healthier tends to do away with the mental fog many of us deal with on a daily basis. The most successful people I've studied have always stressed the importance of coming up with good ideas.
2. You have more energy throughout the day.
Living a healthy lifestyle brings more energy into your sphere. This allows you to get multiple things done throughout the day.
Once you start experiencing massive levels of success, time becomes of the essence. You're constantly on the go. Take a look around, and you'll see that some of the most successful people believe that finding time for the little things can make the biggest difference.
Think about Grant Cardone, for example. He's a successful entrepreneur, and he is always on the move.
He can have meetings in as many as three different cities per day. Those flights can take their toll on him.
His health is what allows him to keep moving at a rapid pace. When you check out his vlog, you'll see that he talks about the importance of health a lot.
Kevin Hart is another example. He's considered the hardest-working man in showbiz. He finds time to maintain a healthy lifestyle by bringing his personal trainer on the road.
Take care of yourself, and watch how doing more becomes easier.
3. You take fewer sick days.
Have you ever felt so sick, it's been impossible to get anything done? As much as you wanted to be out on the battlefield with your counterparts, there was no way it was going to happen.
I've been there before. I even missed an important studio session. Once I started taking better care of myself, those sick days vanished.
Getting turnt every night will do you no good. Keep the drunken “I forgot my name” occurrences to a minimum. Allow yourself some me time.
The last kind of person you want to be known as is the one who has all his or her priorities messed up. Don't put partying before real opportunities.
Your team needs you in the trenches with them. Time waits for no man (or woman). So, if there is an important meeting scheduled and you're unable to make it, you may have lost out on an amazing opportunity.
The best way to get a grip on your health is to work out at least three or four times a week. Stay away from massive amounts of dairy products (among other things).
Try different diets and see which one works best for you. I'm a vegan, and it has been working for me. That doesn't mean it'll work for you, though.
Successful people find the time to do the little things that can make a big difference. Health is wealth.
