Are you Selfish? Or Self-Interested…?
Have you ever felt selfish for trying to start something new?
For trying to invest more money, time or effort into your own personal growth?
Have you ever set off on a new goal and due to this, you spend more time on yourself and others treat you differently? Or maybe you just feel as if they’re judging you? (Probably just a story in your head)
It’s pretty crazy to consider, but many people, including myself at one point in time and I’m sure you as well, have put a massive block on themselves and their own goals due to what others think or how others make them feel.
As humans it’s natural to worry about others before ourselves and any time we decide to start our own journey to betterment, whether that’s for our physical body or starting our own business, the first things that come to mind are “what will they think” or “I can’t, because they need me more”.
But just like the cheesy old airplane line, “put your mask on before others”, you truly cannot help anyone else with your entire being unless you first help yourself.
The slogan of my business, my coaching, and what I do for a living is – Your Body Is The Fastest Path To Power.
Because it’s the simple truth.
And as much as most guys out there don’t like to talk about it, we all just want to be more confident, reach more success, and get attention from someone (whether that’s one or many).
See without taking control of your body, you will never have control or satisfaction with your personal mind, emotions, confidence, spirituality, or image.
Without having that control of your body and then mastering your personal being (all of the above), you will never be able to give your all and have a fulfilling relationship. You cannot accept love from another if you cannot give yourself that love first, nor will you be able to give them the love the deserve back.
And without after having control of your body, your being, and your balance (relationships), you will never be able to have control and massive acceleration in your business. Your career, finances, and everything in relation too, will be out of whack because you will lack focus, productivity, intent, significance, and clarity on what you truly want and how to get there.
It’s funny to me that this is a lost and profound theory. That you need to take ownership of your body and optimize the body you live in, physically and mentally, if you want to take full advantage of every other aspect of your life.
Lets look at some of the most massively successful people in this world…
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tony Robbins, Rob Dyrdek, Barak Obama, Triple H, Garret J. White, Joe Rogan, Gary Vaynerchuk, Will Smith, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and the list just goes on and on…
All of these people, whether they started in a fitness related industry or not, have taken control of the life they live and everything else involved in it. They took control of their industry and then other industries as well.
Each of those individuals has a great relationship, family, career, multiple income revenues, and is in tune with their own spirituality.
What else do they all have in common?
They all take care of their bodies. Whether they’re a ripped WWE star or the healthier than average president of the united stated, they make a point to take care of their body.
Which means… They became self-interested and I can guarantee at some point in their growth, someone in their life made them feel selfish for it. Because they were focused on bettering themselves by taking time, money, and effort to become more.
Let’s talk about the mind for second, so I don’t have to get all “lovey-dovey” on my guys yet – even though I truly believe having a healthy relationship is one of the biggest keys to overall success.
The mind functions better in so many ways, when our health is on track. Eating properly and exercising daily can change everything for your success… Here are some examples why (all backed by science):
- Increase Stress Resilience (ability to handle stress)
- Reduces Anxiety Significantly
- Lowers Risk of Dementia
- Mood Enhancement
- Fights Depression
- Speeds Your Cognitive Function and Productivity
- Improves Memory (short term and long term)
- Boost self-control
- Protects From Alzheimer’s
- Improved Work Performance
- Stimulates Brain Cell Growth
- Boost Your Executive Functioning (decision making)
- Improves Sleep
- Prevents Migraines
And we haven’t even gotten into its effects on self-appreciation, confidence, nutrient absorption, fat loss (which has a gang of benefits), and all the other health benefits.
A Healthy Body Leads To A Healthy Mind.
And when we look at this list, it only makes sense that in doing this for ourselves and our own person life, along with every aspect about it, we will in turn be able to help our loved ones twice as much because we’re in more power personally.
Today’s blog is short, to the point, and hopefully eye opening.
If you want massive success, in any avenue of your life – whether it be your career, your self-worth, or your relationship… You need to be self-interested and part of that should include optimizing your body.
The human body wasn’t designed to be lazy, overweight or unhealthy. It was designed to move a lot, eat real food, function well, and progress in all that it does.
Anyone who tells you or makes you feel selfish for focusing on that and becoming a bit self-interested is being selfish themselves.
Over the years of coaching hundreds of people, reaching thousands online, reading book after book, and studying under some of the greatest coaches and entrepreneurs…. I’ve discovered that the only way to maximize your growth and expansion as a human being is to become self-interested.
I’ve also learned through that process, that you can treat your significant other and closest loved ones much better after understanding and living this concept.
And that everything starts with your body. Maximizing your health and physical body, leads to a better mindset which leads to better relationships which all lead to a better overall business.
It’s a revolving cycle of success, in which all starts with becoming self-interested.
Far different from being selfish.
