Going Beyond The Physical Results of Becoming Fit

Comments Off on Going Beyond The Physical Results of Becoming Fit

You’re the entrepreneur of your body.

An entrepreneur develops a business plan, acquires the required resources, and is fully responsible for its success or failure. That’s you, regarding your body.

You decide what you want your body to do. Do a triathlon. Live pain-free. Become a swimmer. Do a handstand.

You figure out what you need to assist you in getting there: start sleeping more so you’re refreshed and ready for action, hire a coach, join a gym, start doing daily mobility work, etc.

Then you head towards your goal. Sure, there will be hurdles. There always are. But when it’s all said and done, whether you get there or not is your responsibility.

The cool thing is, acting as the entrepreneur of your body gets you physical results, it also nets benefits in your 9-to-5 work, too. Whether you’re an employee at a large company, or you’re running your own business, the benefits of being physically capable are tangible in your work. And this is about more than just ‘you’ll take less sick days’ – although that’s true too.

I wrote an article recently for Rules Of Success detailing five great outcomes that occur in your work when you’re physically capable, to go along with my recent in-studio appearance on their podcast.

Here’s a snippet of the article, and if you’d like to read the full post, head over to Rules Of Success to do that and listen to the podcast:

“Physically moving your body makes you happier, and when you’re happier, you’re more likely to find solutions to problems at work. One study found that if employees were happier on a given day, they were not only more likely to come up with a new idea or solve a complex problem that same day, but also to do so the next day. Exercise increases the production of serotonin, one of your most important chemicals in supporting your happiness levels. Completing a workout also provides a sense of accomplishment that acts like a snowball into the rest of your life.”
