So, my past few posts have talked a lot about business and its importance when it comes to building your dream lifestyle. And it’s true: money is one of the pillars of success, and running your own business is an excellent way to generate wealth for yourself.
However, financial success is just one of several pillars of success. In fact, as talked about by one of my mentors, Tai Lopez, there are actually four pillars of success: health, wealth, love (family, friends, and your relationships in general), and happiness (the ways you find fulfillment in life).
Today I want to talk a little bit about the first pillar – health. Your personal health is a critical element when it comes to living the lifestyle of your dreams and actually enjoying your life for many years to come. What good will having a lot of money do for you if you can’t go out and enjoy the activities that money can pay for? How can you truly enjoy time with your family and friends if you’re constantly in a state of ill health?
It’s clear then, that personal health is a cornerstone of creating a successful life. As most of us know, the fundamentals of personal health are seemingly simple: eat well and be active.
Unfortunately, in practice, this is much easier said than done. We live in a world that makes it easy to eat food that’s bad for us and hard to get the amount of physical exercise that we need to sustain our health.
That’s why I decided to get a personal trainer. I knew that I needed to start eating better and working out. I’d like to say it was solely motivated by personal health reasons, but at the time, I also just really wanted to look sexy in my bikini.
However, I didn’t want to settle for just any trainer. I’ve been to the local gyms and seen some of the so-called trainers that walk their floors. Not for me, no way. Instead, I knew that I needed to choose from one of top fitness trainers in the Toronto area if I had any chance of getting in shape. At the time I was initially looking for a trainer, I was working in the Toronto area, so I decided to go on Google to search for the best personal trainers in Toronto. That’s when I found, fittingly enough, the website, Best Personal Trainers Toronto.
This site listed some of the best trainers in the Toronto area, who I contacted immediately. However, in the end, I decided to get a trainer in Whitby, which fortunately this site was also able to help me out with.
After finding an amazing personal trainer, my life hasn’t been the same. Before, it was incredibly easy for me to convince myself that an extra hour of sleep was better for me than actually dragging my butt out of bed to go to the gym for an hour. Now that I’m paying for a trainer, I don’t have that luxury anymore, especially since he charges me whether or not I go. However, it’s not even just the money. I know that if I dare to not show my face at a training session without a damn good reason, I’ll be made to pay for my error in judgement at my next training session. That’s what I call motivation.
So, has it been worth it? Well, you’ve seen my most recent profile picture. While I’m not going to be one of those girls that tells you just how pretty I am, I will say this: if I had taken that picture a year ago, I’m not even sure I would fit in the frame. That’s how much of a difference finding a great personal trainer has made in my life.
So if you want to live the good life, you need to look after the first pillar of success, which is personal health. Start now by doing a Google search for the best personal trainers in your area. Not only will they show you what to do if you have no idea about the difference between a dumbbell and a barbell, they’ll also give you all the extra motivation you need to ensure you achieve all of your fitness goals.
