Hi, this is Mike Lipkin and welcome to this breakthrough moment.
We are all athletes in the game of life. Ultimately, all performance is physical. Fatigue breaks us down. Success is a function of stamina. Well begun is half done but it’s how you finish that counts. The history of humanity is littered with unhappy endings that could have ended very well if the protagonist just kept on going for a few more miles, mornings or months.
“I don’t have time” is the alibi of a loser. In April 2018, a study published in the American Heart Association journal “Circulation” found behaviors such as eating healthy and regularly exercising could add 10 years to your life. But most people don’t do it. What’s more, the 2018 Environics Social Values survey revealed that not only is taking care of oneself rare, but people know and admit it. 60% of people claim to prioritize health but fewer than 30% seem committed to actually exercising. Only 10% seem to believe, exercise or not, that they have more energy than the people around them. But most of them find reasons not to do anything about it.
You can hide many things but you cannot hide your lack of commitment to physical health. It’s the first thing that people notice about you: you either look healthy or you don’t. You look like you care about your body or you don’t. You look like you have discipline or you don’t.
Every workout is a triumph over procrastination and self-indulgence. Win your own R.E.S.P.E.C.T if you want to earn it from others. Walk, run, cycle, swim, push or pull your way forward. Every day is a gift so earn more of them. This is Mike Lipkin. I am the Potentiator. And I approve this message.
