When you leave college and step into the real world, you’re faced with true freedom for the first time. Every day, you wake up and decide what you’re going to do with your time, where you’re going to go in life, and how you’re going to look while you’re getting there.
Whether you make these decisions consciously or unconsciously, you’re setting the path for your life every second of every day.
You could ramp up your freelance writing career or apply to be a columnist. You could eat a frozen pizza or reach for some broccoli. You could take a jog around the block or click “Yes, I’m still watching.”
Choices are abundant, and your decisions are crucial.
Your decisions determine how you look, feel, and what you get done.
So, what do Obama, Joe Rogan, and Oprah have in common?
They decide, every day, to exercise.
Successful people are fit. Fit People are successful. Why?
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Which came first, the success or the fitness?
One could argue that people who are fit, to begin with, end up being more successful later in life. They have endorphins coursing through their veins constantly, making them feel like a million bucks, and people treat them well because they’re attractive.
However, one could also argue that successful people realize that their money is worthless if they feel like garbage and are going to die at 55. Successful people decide to get in shape to make the most of their lives.
Either way, we know one thing is for sure…
There is a pattern.
People who make it to the top tier of their professions are almost always in shape. They exercise regularly and read about modern nutrition. They self-experiment with various diets and exercise routines, finding one that works best for their body.
On the other end of the spectrum, while there’s a myriad of potential reasons as to why, it’s worth noting that unsuccessful people tend to be unhealthy, overweight, and bogged down by chronic diseases.
Correlation does not imply causation, but correlation cannot be ignored.
Furthermore, your health is in no one’s hands but your own. Now that we’re grown adults free from the restrictive chains of school, it’s our responsibility to maintain good health.
Post-grad fitness is the foundation from which all success branches off.
Exercising boosts amazing molecules and hormones that keep you feeling fresh and ready to take on the world. Exercise is raw confidence. It’s a constant stream of endorphins, dopamine, and testosterone. Exercise is key.
Nutrition is the best friend of exercise. Nutrition will keep you in shape even when you can’t make it to the gym because you’re busy scuba diving with a client. Nutrition is what reduces inflammation, boosts cognitive ability, and prevents cancer.
Successful people know this and they use it as a tool.
Just in case fitness comes before success, it’s well worth it to hit the gym every once in a while and wave “no more” to the pasta.
