‘You are what you eat.’
‘A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips.’
‘Rubbish in – Rubbish out.’
And so on.
We all know what we should be eating but why does it seem so hard to control what we put into our mouths and why did God make all the unhealthy stuff taste so good?
The truth is that the most successful people I know, many of whom are personal friends of mine have mastered what I refer to as the final frontier – controlling what they put into their mouths. From this springs massive success in other areas of their lives:
- Business success
- Financial success
- Joy and happiness
- Inspiring others by their example
Look at the below people I know personally for example:
Glenn Smith from the Red Corner Gym
Tony Somers – Master Motivator
Geoff Thompson – Success Guru and world famous writer
Do these guys have some secret formula for eating success?
Do they have supreme self control?
Would you like to know their dirty little secret?
It is their values.
No, it wasn’t a joke. Eating healthily isn’t something they DO – it is something they ARE.
They don’t eat crap because the thought never enters their mind. It is no effort and no sacrifice. Asking them to eat a cream cake would be like asking them to smoke a crack pipe. They would look at you as if you were mad.
