In today’s world you must build resilience. Resilience makes you relentless.
You need to have an edge. You need high-energy, good health and resistance to illness, disease and burnout.
Health and vitality are required to thrive. Nothing is better for your health than strength training and clean eating.
A Strong Body is a Strong Mind
A strong body is a strong mind. Nobody understand this like today’s leading Tech CEOs.
In the professional world, competitors are working around the clock to best you.
Companies are in a constant struggle to grow market share and increase profits. It takes vigilance, quick thinking, tenacity, and staying power to out maneuver your opponent.
This leads to unpredictability and stress (if you let it stress you).
Hitting the weights is the perfect way to build resilience and keep you sharp and energized.
Training keeps your body strong and healthy. It’s also a great way to clear your mind and release stress.
Tech CEOs are exposed to high stakes, high pressure situations that would make most men lose their minds.
High stress jobs need an outlet, the weight room is the best outlet.
When you think of tech companies you think of a bunch of skinny, egg-head guys tinkering away at their computers. The game has changed. That image no longer describes the tech nerds.
Tech CEO Transformations
Building resilience is necessary to build something that lasts. Energy and action are the key ingredient to success and longevity. Persistent, forceful, effective action requires energy. The more energy you have the better you can lead.
More and more often, tech CEOs are realizing the benefits of weight training to stay fit for the important job of running a global company.
For example, Jack Bezos went from nerdy librarian to action hero:
Other tech ‘powerhouses’ like Mark Cuban, Mark Zuckerberg and Brian Chesky, CEO of AirBnB, all know the value of building resilience. As their company value increased, so has the size of their muscles:
Mark Zuckerberg’s Transformation:
Mark Zuckerburg is no longer a pencil-neck geek billionaire. Now he’s a buff-nerd billionaire changing the way people connect, learn and grow.
Mark Cuban is another high power CEO that has built a buff physique:
Somewhere, somehow Mark Cuban found time to hit the weights while being a one-man conglomerate.
Brian Chesky, knew the benefits of weight training before becoming a billionaire in his 30’s. Here’s a throwback from his bodybuilding days before starting AirBnB:
If I were to guess, I think Mr. Chesky used an old school bodybuilding routine to achieve his aesthetic physique.
If these guys can find time to workout while running the most powerful companies in the world, what’s your excuse?
How do they do it? Do these guys know something we don’t?
Yes, they do.
They know that health is wealth. They know that you can have both health and wealth if you work for it.
Build Resilience and Perform Optimally with Weight Training
High pressure jobs and weight training go hand in hand. First, you work hard building your business and personal brand.
Working hard builds up tension and stress. Then use this built up tension and stress as fuel for your workouts.
You will train harder, build more muscle and realize more health benefits. You will also experience a feeling of calm, clarity and renewal allowing you to focus on your work even harder.
It’s a beautiful cycle.
Without Health You Can’t Enjoy Wealth
If you work your ass of to be a millionaire or billionaire but you get fat, sick and feel like shit all day every day, is it really worth it?
You must maintain your body just like you maintain your business, because without you at your best, what is your business going to amount to?
Whether you’re running a billion dollar company or a gas station, if you want to get ahead in life, you need to fire on all cylinders as often as possible.
Most high performers I know in sales, business or entrepreneurs make it a point to workout regularly. Many are avid weight lifters, runners or bikers.
Either way they are ACTIVE. ACTION is in their DNA. Action in business, action in health.
Take health into your own hands by taking action.
