207: It’s Your Time to Be Healthy & Successful


Welcome to episode #207 of the Own Your Best Life Podcast. As a professional, you’re used to working hard and doing the hustle. Pushing through pain and tough moments is part of the jobs we’ve decided to take on. We often have the mental pictures of success as being those who are martyred, dying and just making it through life while making lots of money or finally achieving the status they desire. 

We have the stories and examples of leaders who experience multiple divorces, deaths or illnesses over the course of their tenure. We see the cost of success and we don’t want it for ourselves.

Or, we know that even though it looks painful, we want to support our families and ourselves. We want to be independent and successful. We want to leave a legacy or make an impact in the ways that we can – so we go the way of others before us – killing ourselves to be successful.

It’s natural, however, if you’re a hard worker to believe that you are willing to pay the price of success through your health and energy. 

You feel like your time and energy – your health IS the thing you can give. You also don’t want to look too happy, because that means you must not care about your work. If you care about your work, you should be stressed and unhappy.

Yet, I want to change this paradigm of success for you once and for all. 

Is it really true that you need to be unhealthy to be successful? Is it a requirement?

If you or others could have health and success, wouldn’t they want that for themselves? The hallmarks of success in the past have been that people sacrificed families, relationships and their health to achieve important work goals or financial wealth. Yet, we’ve seen time and time again that once the “successful” realized that they weren’t truly successful because they had poor health or broken relationships, they often made changes.

They began focusing more on their health, energy and wellbeing. The same ingenuity, discipline and commitment that’s required for success in their professional lives were applied to their physical and mental health. 

They realized that they were their own biggest assets. They were the source of the wealth or success – and if they redefined success in their work lives, they can continue to redefine and carve out unique paths in order to have more energy, lose weight and focus on rest and recovery. In order to do their best work, they’ve realized that their bodies and brains need sleep, proper nutrition, recovery and less stress.

They’ve become more savvy, learned from the leaders in the past and even though they’re not perfect, they’re improving their health and wellbeing outcomes while being successful.

You can do the same. There’s a shift in leadership now that is more conscious of the cost of success when we don’t examine the implications of poor health upon decision-making and  performance. 

So how do we stay healthy while being successful?

You utilize high-performance strategies.

High-performance strategies include the routines, tips and tricks that help you perform at your best.

This is how you can actually take breaks and vacations without feeling like you have to be working through them. 

I teach my clients Flow Activation Rituals™, which allow them to know how, when and where they are working so they keep getting better at creating high-quality work while maximizing high-quality rest and relaxation time.

These rituals are crafted based on their own unique lifestyles, needs and goals so that you don’t have to do what everyone else does – you do what works for you to feel and work at your best.

It’s also a mindset shift where you’re not just doing more work faster, you see yourself as a completely different person who has a very powerful tool and asset at their disposal – you. 

The reason this works is because you don’t just rest all the time and do less work. You use rest as a tool to get more and better quality work done. You see the shift in the way you work and you practice these rituals even more. It’s not a one and done – just like anything else in your life – we are constantly refining and reviewing to see if something needs to change based upon your life and work changing.

This is why it’s a practice that once you learn, you can utilize for the rest of your life – the same pieces but put in different order or in different configurations to create a life where you have time for not just work, but also for copious amounts of time to do the other things that are important for your well being. Rest, sleep, play and recovery. Food, nutrition and movement. Healthy mental and emotional hygiene that decrease stress and increase resilience.

This works even if you have lots of meetings or constraints on your time as most high-performers do. The difference between those who succeed and those who succeed on their terms is this ability to be able to create high quality work without sacrificing their health or relationships.

So I’ll ask you this, do you want to recreate patterns of success that have been used in the past to create poor health and low-quality relationships?

Or do you want to learn the strategies that high-performers use who feel both healthy and successful?
