HEALTH Starts and Ends with You
Your health is your responsibility.
As much as I️ would love to just be able to give my health problems to someone else to take care of for me, that’s not how It works. (Jane, you’re in charge of exercising my muscles. Steve, you’re in charge of meditating, meanwhile, I’m going to lay on this couch and watch YouTube. Alright, ready…go!)
I grew up not knowing that food not only affects how you look but also how you feel.
Most of my “education” early on was just marketing. “Milk builds strong bones”. Sure sure. But what about kale and spinach? And that quality counts.
Our circumstances might not have been ideal, but that doesn’t change the fact that we can do something about it now. We can do better today.
Or am I️ just going to give up? Lay in bed for the rest of my life, never write a book, release a music album, travel the world? Hell No.
This is my responsibility.
The only person who can care 150% about your wellbeing is yourself.
Others can care, but you should care even more. Some doctors care, but there’s only so much they can do with a 20-minute consultation. Plus if a doctor cares more about your health than you do, then something needs to be changed. You are the one who has the power in your hands to change your life trajectory.
I’m not a doctor (nor do I️ play one on the Internet), I’m not telling you to do something stupid. I’m telling you to do the opposite — be smart about your health. Your health directly affects everything you do, including your creativity and success. If you want to be a high performer in what you do, you’ve got to go beyond the basics and learn to take control of what ails you.
You must be the one to take charge, gain knowledge, and master health and wellness.
Somewhere out there, there is someone who has been through what we’re going through. It’s up to us to learn from them and smartly experiment with what works for ourselves.
You’re health — and ultimately your life — is in your hands.
A greater understanding of health is a certain roadmap to a better all-around YOU.
