Achieving optimal fitness results is no different from achieving success anywhere else in life.
While the situations, surroundings and areas of interest may differ, there are common traits, habits and levels of discipline that connect very successful people.
If you are very financially responsible, it is a safe bet that you are focused, very disciplined and consistent with all aspects of your finances. If you love video games, you are going to be very proficient because you spend the necessary time and effort to perfect your skills and strategies for each game while mastering the countless twists, turns and details. If you are a successful lawyer, you obviously possess the passion and drive to succeed that allowed you to grind through law school and then to rise above the rest because you are willing to work your tail off to achieve the goals you have set for yourself.
Nothing is more important than your health. Financial responsibility, video game expertise or a successful law career will not achieve good health for you, you have to make it happen.
However, all of those paths for success share a common thread and if you utilize many of the same formats for success that you enjoy in other areas of your life, the distance between you and a healthy lifestyle will be much shorter than you could have ever imagined.
