Guest blog post by Sports Management student Katie Hennessy.
To be successful, to reach the top and most importantly to stay at the top.
You need to be fit. It's non-negotiable for highly successful people.
You can motivate yourself to reach your dreams, to be the person you always wished you would be, whether that be a business manager of a well known firm or even the owner of a successful business you built up yourself. You will only stay successful if your keep your head clear of all weakness.
Most people when they want to clear their head get active, pressure their bodies rather than the mind. Rather than going by themselves they go with a friend outside the workplace. Then come back to the office ready to go again new ideas and a new frame of mind.
Anyone can reach the top but to stay at the top is the hardest part. Most if not all successful business men like Howard Schultz, chairman and chief executive officer of Starbucks, keeps their fitness levels at the very top as well as their businesses. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, doesn't take meetings sitting down in the office--he takes people out for a walk to discuss business. These people work hard to get their business to strive and do everything in their power to do so. And judging by their success in business, keeping fit is definitely a key factor.
I admire people at the top of their game in business and I believe their approach to a healthy lifestyle is changing the way people improve the way they think by simply getting bit of fresh air.
