Why Make Exercise a Part of Your Life?


If I were to ask how you would define success, what would you say? Is it having wealth? Social status? Good health? Certain accomplishments? Moving up the corporate ladder? A great family life? Maybe it is a combination of these things. If I were to ask ten people this question I would probably get ten different answers.

Who doesn't want to be successful? There are hundreds if not thousands of self-help books that teach people how to be successful. There are books on financial success, parenting success, marketing success and even exercise success. Why? Because everybody wants to be successful at what they do.

You purchased this book because you wanted to be successful with exercise. I hope that by reading it you have found ways to overcome the barriers that prevented you from making exercise a part of your life. When you succeed at this you will see changes in your life you never thought possible.

I want you to think of a time when you had the flu or a terrible cold. How did you feel? Horrible, I'm sure. How ambitious did you feel to do anything? The only thing you wanted to do was lie on the couch, right? Feeling unhealthy will cause you to lose your ambition.

I use having the flu as an example of how unmotivated we can be when we're sick. But what if it is more than just the flu? Say you have a chronic disease that causes you to feel under-the-weather all the time. Your condition would greatly influence your potential for success.

Now I'm not saying that just because you exercise that you will never get sick or develop a chronic disease. Anything can happen. However, the likelihood of something happening is far less. Getting involved with exercise and making it a part of your life will help you become more successful.
