Training your body has an amazing and powerful effect on sustaining the characteristics of a highly successful individual. If your goal is to be the best at what you do, to become the most valuable person you can grow in to, why wouldn’t you take your health, energy, and confidence more seriously?
Here are six ways training can improve success:
1. Training Improves Levels of Energy: Health is energy. What is the real point of health? It is efficiency. It is your physical body performing at it’s highest levels to create and sustain the energy to deliver your purpose to the world. Thomas Fuller simply stated, “The difference between men is energy.”
2. Training Improves Focus and Concentration: Recent studies have shown that even one bout of exercise (even better than caffeine) can improve your mental and cognitive performance throughout the day. The long-term response enhances brain chemicals critical in expanding new nerve connections and brain tissue in the area of the brain for higher learning.
3. Training Improves Sense of Achievement: Successful people thrive on getting things done and personal achievement. In all aspects of their life, they compete. After completing your training, there is always a sense of accomplishment. Over time, persevering through a training regimen will do wonders for your confidence and your overall desire to improve will be apparent.
4. Training Improves Physical Appearance: Training improves body image and physical appearance. Feeling attractive never hurts when speaking of confidence. Though confidence is much more than looks, how you perceive your body changes your presence.
5. Training Improves Transitions in Mindset: Success, focus, and perseverance can bring high amounts of stress. At the highest levels, it can be unbearable, even lethal. Training, like mediation, gives the mind a break. It can improve anxious, cynical, and depressive thoughts by releasing chemical substances resulting in positive feelings and helping to relieve stress.
6. Training Improves Your Attendance: People who train are generally more healthy than their counterparts. By building immunity and decreasing your chances of significant health risks, you show up more often. You not only show up, but you show up with energy and purpose. The more days you show up, the more impact you make, the more successful you can become.
