In California, USA, a wealthy businessman died of a heart attack.
While he had all the material trappings of outer success, he lacked achievement in this one area.
Sadly, doctors had been telling him for years to get into shape physically.
They told him repeatedly: reduce stress, lower your fat intake and go for a walk three times a week.
He refused their advice and eventually had a heart attack and dropped dead! When they read his will, apparently he had asked to be buried in his Rolls-Royce.
To carry out his last wishes, his next of kin hired a ditch digger and a crane.
Just as the magnificent "Silver Shadow" Bentley was being lifted into the air with the body of the dead man strapped in the driver's seat, a bystander turned to his mate and said, "Man, ain't that living!" That's not living - that's stupid! What's the point of being the richest person in the graveyard? This area is of vital significance because your body is the temple that houses your great creative power.
We can liken it to "the goose that lays the golden eggs".
If you destroy the goose (your body), you may destroy your ability to create golden eggs (anything worthwhile within the other six areas).
Physical destiny determines whether you have a destiny at all! If the last time you had any exercise was when you jumped to a conclusion, I'm talking to you.
Sadly, those who fail to exercise miss all of the empowering benefits it provides.
What's worse, startling statistics reveal if your level of fitness is in the lower 20% of the population; you're 65% more likely to die from cancer, stroke, a heart attack or diabetes than those who are in the top 20% of physical fitness.
How would you like to take a trip on a 747 jumbo jet that had just been fueled with dirt, iron filings and toxic waste? It is the same thing with your body.
To reach your intended destination, it must perform! This is why you may need to set a goal to fuel your body for greater performance by learning to eat more selectively and with persistence.
The benefits of eating the right foods, combined with regular exercise, will sharpen you mentally and often cascade into every other area of Physical Goal Suggestions Do I need to: • Cut the cholesterol in my diet? • Visit a doctor for a full medical check up? • Start taking vitamins or nutritional supplements? • Quit chemical addictions - drugs, smokes and excessive alcohol? • Get an adequate amount of sleep?
