You Are What You Eat
When I was in elementary school way back when, there was a nutritional campaign going on that said “You are what you eat.” The idea was basically “Garbage in, garbage out.” If you don’t give your body good food, it can’t produce its best results.
We have to give our body what it needs in order for it to serve us well. We need the proper amount of diet and exercise in order to get the best out of ourselves. A well balanced diet that has a large amount of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables is a great start.
I think this goes further. I was reading the One Minute Entrepreneur by Ken Blanchard, Don Hutson and Ethan Willis. The book makes a statement that we are the average of the five people closest to us. I think this makes a good deal of sense. I think it goes further though. We are the average of anyone in our lives who has had an influence on us, good or bad. From the neighbor kid, to the high school friends and high school sweethearts on up to college professors, co-workers and other associates, they all have an influence on us.
We owe it to ourselves to give ourselves the best shot at success. We need to read good books, stay away from pornography, eat right, exercise, etc. We need to stay away from things that can damage our bodies like drugs and even tattoos. Ever hear of hepatitis?
What do you think about this? Do you believe that it is important to provide yourself with the best shot in business and in life?
