The Unbreakable Link Between Physical Health and Professional Success: How Neglecting One Affects the Other and What to Do About It
When we talk about success, the conversation often veers towards career milestones, financial freedom, or innovative breakthroughs. But have you ever considered that the cornerstone to professional success isn't just your business acumen, but also your physical health?
Why Health Matters in the Boardroom and Home Decision Making
Let's not mince words: your physical health is your ultimate asset. Let's call your health and wellbeing the "engine". It's what's under the hood.
It's the engine that drives every decision you make, every deal you close, and every goal you achieve.
When that 'engine' (aka your health and wellbeing) is not firing on all cylinders, your professional life as well as your personal life will inevitably suffer.
Neglecting your health doesn't just lead to medical bills; it robs you of your energy, focus, and decision-making capabilities.
Think about it: When was the last time you felt on top of your game after a poor night's sleep? Navigated challenging conversations calmly, didn't react or feel anxious?
The Real Cost
Ignoring the signs your body is giving you isn't "pushing through"; it's paving the way for burnout. What's more, it sets a perilous example for your team and your family.
After all, a burnt-out leader leads to a burnt-out organisations, and that's a cost no company can afford. It also means you're not leading by example at home and taking your stress, low energy and 'push through it' habits out of work and into your family life.
The Mojo Maker® Approach
It's important to put your oxygen mask on first.
As someone who has worked with CEOs, founders, and high-performing teams, I can tell you that the transformation from stressed to best starts with self-leadership. It's about being the CEO of your own life, not just your business.
So how do you link physical health and professional success? It starts with a strategy—just like you'd have for your business:
Plan: Allocate time for exercise, balanced meals, and rest. Treat it like an important business meeting. Make those elements MICRO STEPS to ensure continuity.
Execute: Act on your plan. Whether it's a 30-minute run or a session of mindfulness, get it done.
Measure: Keep tabs on how changes to your physical routine impact your work performance. our new ACCERER8TE! app lets you track everything from writing out winning weeks to tracking fresh air sessions and personal wellbeing goals
Optimise: Once you see what's working, scale it. If morning workouts make you a better decision-maker, make it a daily ritual. Radical HABITS create radical results effortlessly.
The ROI of Good Health
Let's talk numbers. The return on investment (ROI) for paying attention to your health is astronomical. Reduced stress levels, increased focus, and superior decision-making abilities will not only boost your bottom line but also elevate your life quality.
In a society obsessed with hustle culture, it's easy to disregard the unbreakable link between physical health and professional success. But remember, you wouldn't run a million-dollar machine into the ground. So why do it to yourself?
Take Action Today
Don't wait for the New Year, a milestone birthday, or a health scare to spur you into action. The time for change is now.
As you strive for what I call "the ultimate trifecta—health, wealth, and wisdom"—remember that each pillar is interdependent. Neglect one, and the whole structure wobbles.
So, here's my challenge to you: Be the CEO of your entire life. Make smart choices that set you up for sustainable success in every realm, personally and professionally. Because when you are firing on all cylinders, there is truly nothing you can't achieve.
