When people think of being financially successful, they often think of grit, sacrifice, sleepless nights, and all that kind of stuff.
Of course, there’s no denying that in order to make a success of a business, you will have to work hard, with consistency, and make some sacrifices in other areas of your life.
What is not true, however, is that in order to make a success of your business you’ve got to ruin your health by doing things like sleeping radically too few hours each night, failing to take proper nutrition into account, and so on.
In fact, living your life this way is only a fast track to the day when you have to Google search terms like urgent care center near me. And, even before things really come to a head, you’ll find that this kind of lifestyle makes you radically less – not more – productive.
So, here are some basic beginner tips on how to boost your physical and financial health, side by side.
If you work full-time then there is a high chance that you spend more time at work when compared to any other place. You probably don’t spend much time with your family either, let alone see your friends at the weekend. If you are working overtime constantly, then your work could be harming your health without you even realizing.
It’s tempting to slack off where your health is concerned. For one thing, working out and eating healthily is hard work. You find it easier to eat what you want and sit in front of the TV rather than to hit the gym. Plus, you’re relatively young and you’ve got years before you need to worry about that sort of stuff.
The thing is, you haven’t. Studies show that taking care of your body now is an excellent way to safeguard your health into middle age and beyond. If you drink too much, are overweight and smoke, below are the reasons you should consider a rethink.
When it comes to working out, your success is dependent upon a lot of factors. How hard you work, how long you train for… these things are all important, but the most important thing is whether you’re prepared for your workout, as you can’t expect to do well if you roll up to the gym not feeling energised and ready to go. If you want to get the best results, but you don’t really know how to get ready to achieve them, then follow these simple tips!Read more

What is your "why"?
If you've encountered any self-help book, guru, or Instagram page in the last decade, you've likely come across this question. We're obsessed with the concept of "why" we do things particularly as they relate to our so-called "passion."
The "why" is the reason -- the essence -- behind our motivation for doing the right things on a daily basis. Yet, have we ever really thought about what our "why" says about us.
Think about -- why do you really get up in the morning? Is it because you can't wait to jump out of bed, have your feet hit the floor, and start another fantastic day?
Or is it more because it's your routine, you have to fight traffic, you have a family to support, and you need to make money? Oh yeah, and the only way to make said money is to pump out another 50,000 TPS reports today?
Your "why" needs to be so much more than a cliche if you ever hope to get out that day-to-day drudgery. The last thing you want to do is become numb to it and descend into the pit of "whatever." That's a life sentence chained to a desk from 9-to-5 you will never escape from!
What are we to do? Well, take a look at how I've reworked my life to more closely align with my "why." It will take effort on your part, but it's definitely something you can work towards every day.Read more
