Successful Entrepreneurs Have The Health Habit

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 169

Get The NEWSS, And Get Your Personal Vitality Up

You're no victim, you're an entrepreneur... so you've started a business, or you're just about to do so. You are not going to rely on the government, or on anyone else, for your livelihood. You're not going to wait around for the government's ham-handed efforts to reduce joblessness to have a positive impact on your life (which is good, because the prospects are not promising). You're going to create your own job, your own opportunities. And while you're at it, you're creating opportunities and jobs for others.

That's what entrepereneurship is all about, and it's what makes America great (and what will save her from the socialist abyss, time permitting). You're to be congratulated. But while you're creating your success habits - returning calls, conducting strong meetings, calling on customers, training employees, whatever - you need to make sure you're establishing great personal health habits.

Your business needs you, in order to survive, thrive, and grow. And you need your personal energy and vitality in order to do what you need to do to drive your business. Even if your entrepreneneurial mission is carried out in the employ of another organization, your mission will still fail if you try to conduct business as a "brain on a stick," without regard for the needs of your body. You need your health. If you think about it, all the opportunities you're creating for yourself and for others will evaporate if you end up flat on your back in the hospital. And too many hard-charging entrepreneurs do.

Start with the five key daily health habits I call The NEWSS: Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sleep, and Supplements. You need to make sure your diet is reasonable; start by cutting out the convenience garbage food too many busy people try to live on, and make sure you're getting fresh, real food into your system. Work out at least three times a week, getting your heart rate into the appropriate aerobic zone for your age (working out six days a week is much better). Drink at least two liters of water every day - that's an easy habit to establish, and requires nothing more than a half-liter sports bottle that you remember to fill and drain four times every day (once with each meal, and at least once with your workout). Get your eight hours of sleep every night - studies show adults really do need to recharge with good sleep habits (yes, even you). And to make sure your body gets what it can't get from today's food supply, take at least one good multi-nutrient supplement every day.

You might think you can run a successful business without strong personal vitality... and you might get away with it, for a short while. But in the fullness of time, you need to have enough energy and vigor not only to drive your business and your mission, but to stick around and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Remember, the goal is overall happiness... and people aren't happy when they're sick and tired, no matter how successful they are in other aspects of their lives. Drive your personal vitality, and you'll give yourself the best chance to drive your mission and your business the way you want.
