Exercise for Performance

Yes.. You’ll have to actually workout

I’m not saying you need to start chugging proteinwhoa shakes and turn into the person that you despise, but exercise is what we call the “blade of life”.  Being in shape, fit and strong helps you in many ways.

Still looking at the picture?  Wondering exactly what that means?  Sure you are!

It’s there to get your attention, but it’s not exactly what I’m talking about.  There’s a story which I’m about to share with you regarding the “blade of life” and two brothers with axes.

Sharpening the Blade of Life..  A Short Story

Two brothers we’re sitting down to eat dinner on their farm when brother one (we’ll name him Kevin) asked brother two (we’ll name him Will) to entertain a challenge for the next morning.

“I reckon I’ll be able to finish my wood chopping duties before you tomorrow, Will” Kevin explained to Will.

“I guarantee you won’t, and to further that guarantee I’ll bet you cooking duties,” said Will sharply.

Kevin immediately OK’d the challenge.  The next day they awoke at the same time and Kevin immediately went outside to get a head start on his work.  Will on the other hand decided to sharpen his blade for the next hour.  Kevin stood in the window laughing and pointing at Will as he was already done with 2 logs.

By the time Will was out the door Kevin was on his 3rd log.  Sure enough Will went to work..

Hours passed.

Kevin’s blade got dull and his progressed slowed.  Will’s blade was sharp and he was able to be a lot more productive than Kevin.

Sure enough he finished first.  Kevin shocked is dismay learned a valuable lesson that day.  Sharpen your blade…

Moral of the Story (for those skimmers)

Exercise, eating right, and treating your body right is how you sharpen your blade.  Get your exercise so you can feed your addiction and get addicted to winning.
