Your Health Is The Key To Your Success In Business

By Bedros Keuilian

Be honest: Are you working at your absolute peak? Just look at The Rock. Sure he’s charismatic and a strong actor, but how does he fly across the world to record back-to-back films with barely a moment to rest? It’s because he’s in incredible shape. The Rock gets the most out of his acting chops because he obsesses over his health.

That same idea applies to you as an entrepreneur. Treat your body well — eat right, challenge your body, get proper sleep — and you’ll reward yourself with more energy, greater focus, and a heightened level of discipline. You’ll achieve new levels of productivity while your competition falls behind and watches you scale faster and faster.

Today I’m sharing with you three ways a healthy lifestyle will transform you into a world-class entrepreneur — and stack more dollars in your bank account. Specifically, I want you to understand why sleep, exercise and nutrition are the keys to the success of today’s most influential entrepreneurs, artists, experts, thought leaders, industry titans and anyone else who performs at a high level.

Get sleep, so you can be your business’s clear-headed leader.

“The snooze button is the single worst invention for sleep ever.”

That’s what sleep expert Michael Breus says, and it’s damn true. His theory is that the extra “sleep” we get from hitting the snooze button is actually “light, fragmented sleep” that leaves us feeling groggy, not refreshed.

That bad sleep destroys the rest of your day. As entrepreneurs, we’re on our feet all day making decisions left and right. The buck stops and starts with us. You think someone can do that when they’re foggy in the head and running on fumes?

Sleep is critical if you want to effectively lead your business. You need a clear head in order to negotiate big-money deals, effectively communicate with your team and inspire others through the social media content you produce. You owe it to yourself, your clients and your team to stay well-rested and alert.

 

Hitting snooze does something to you psychologically as well. When you hit the snooze button, you subconsciously tell yourself that five more minutes of low-quality sleep is more important than accomplishing your life’s mission.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t rest knowing that there are still so many entrepreneurs out there with struggling businesses that need my help. You shouldn’t settle either. Structure your evening so you get deep, uninterrupted sleep. Then, structure your morning so you can jump out of bed and tackle everything on your to-do list.

Sleeping better is just one way you can get an edge on the rest of your competition. Next it’s time to hit the gym and prepare your body and mind for the rigors of business.

Work out to build up your emotional resilience.

You think I like going to the gym, grunting through those grueling workouts and sweating like a madman? No, I don’t like it — I love it. Why? Let me come back to that in a second …

Your best comes out when your back is against the wall. All entrepreneurs hit tough times — they might be in the red for months at a time, or they might have critical team members disappear right when they need them most.
