Mind. Body. Business. Relationships; Each of these things is 100% interconnected.
It's the game of the weakest link. If one fails, they all begin to fail. To empower your Business and Relationships, you need Mind and Body. And you need Body to power your Mind. I thought I was a rock star in Business and Mind until I lost 35 pounds. That's when I realized the truth of David Goggin's statement, "Most people operate at 40% capacity." I had become so out-of-shape that "lethargic and tired" had become my norm. I fell asleep every night at 6:30 or 7 pm before my kids would wake me to go to bed. Put aside the personal-disgust of looking in the mirror.
A shitty diet clouded my brain.
By noon or 1pm I was out of energy, there was no afternoon Flow State or Deep Work that got done. This had a massive negative impact on business, but of course, I didn't know it. Because tired and lethargic were my norm. So now, here I am, out of shape, lethargic, tired, irritable and stressed, because I didn't get everything done because of brain fog. Now it's time to be "Dad" and "Husband." Well, you know that guy was an asshole. Not to mention, he never wanted to play with his kids because physical activity hurt "Fat Ryan's" heart. Dad, want to wrestle? Two-minutes. "Ok, that's good." So I ate dinner, laid on the couch, and fell asleep. Every aspect of my life (Mind, Business, Relationships) suffered due to a weak Body and poor nutrition. The moment I started improving my Body 1% each day, jet fuel happened.
Everything we do, Mind, Body, Business, Relationships, is interconnected — our Body (fitness and nutrition) fuel our Mind. Trust me, I know. For years I was cloudy, foggy, and lethargic and didn't even realize it. Cloudy, foggy and lethargic had become my norm. David Goggins says most people operate at 40% capacity, and I believe that is because at least one, two or three of these things in people's lives are out of balance.
