I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people say to me, “We’re all going to die, so what’s the point of putting in all the effort just to be healthy?” What’s the point of working out and eating healthy if I don’t enjoy it? Look, I get it, why shouldn’t you want to give into every desire and temptation that comes your way. As great as that sounds, the reality is acting on every impulse is going to leave you riddled with disease, lacking energy, lacking the ability to function and dependent.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Wouldn’t I rather live more years so that I can truly live life to the fullest?
- Isn’t part of enjoying life having lots of energy and minimal pain?
- Can I live a fulfilled life when I am held down with extra weight and disease?
- What would life be like if I couldn’t do simple tasks, like playing with my children?
- Do I enjoy being tired all the time?
- Can I afford to be unhealthy?
Why should you make the effort to be healthy?
Eventually, every day begins and in the first few minutes, you will have to face yourself day after day and the effects of living a life out of control. I used to be that guy; I’ve spent years harming myself and dreaded facing the day because of how horrible I felt. Now, I wake up excited and ready take on the day because I started taking better care of myself. I want you to feel excited about your life too and health and fitness is the foundation for that to happen.
I want you to know that there is another choice if you practice treating yourself well. If you exercise, eat well, drink enough water, and get good quality of sleep. Positive actions will reap positive memories and a deep meaningful sense of accomplishment and a sense of, “I’m doing the right thing for myself.”
If you’re guilty of focusing all your energy on working hard and trying to make more money instead of focusing on health. And your health is deteriorating, the pounds are coming on, your waistline is increasing and your blood pressure and cholesterol is going up. I want you to know that it is preventable but it starts with making a decision to take action.
Take control of your health
That’s why I put together my free video series: How to Take Control of your Health and Fitness in 2017, yes even if you’re busy. I don’t want you to become another statistic. Another person who didn’t have the energy to do what they really wanted in life because of their body or who didn’t have the mental clarity and motivation to make it happen.
Watch this limited-time free video training series and finally get your health and fitness handled in 2017.
I wanted to let you know that we’re shutting down enrollment for the Legendary Coaching Program Sunday at MIDNIGHT Est. Time.
So, if you are serious about getting more done in the next 100 days than most people do over the course of ten years, you only have a short time to get in and get going.
