In my case, I was struck down with Blood Cancer and my whole world fell apart. I was fearful of the future.
Why did it happen ? Well. To be honest, we will never know but I believe it was all down to my lifestyle. When I look back, I was working long hours (60 hours plus a week) in a stressful job, drinking heavily (15 pints plus a week) and although I was exercising regularly, my diet was poor. I was no different to about 85 to 90% of the population, not eating my 5 a day in fruits and vegetables. Thankfully, the wonderful NHS, friends, family and the Anthony Nolan Trust and a very kind stranger, who donated their bone marrow, came to my rescue.
Fours years later, I am probably fitter now than I have ever been. As any leading scientist and doctors will tell you, good health is not just about good luck or good genes, there’s science behind it. My good health is no fluke or accident. I have worked hard at it and I am now on a mission to give something back.
Who do you know who is overworked and under paid ? Who do you know who is not paying attention to their health ? Is it time to get the balance back in your life ?
Napoleon Hill continues to write, ‘if the opportunity is not immediately apparent, keep on looking. If you still can’t find opportunity, get busy and make your own’.
Imagine if you could, but you never did do anything about your health.
