- Do you also have the support team
- You can’t wait before you take action
- The next leg of the stool that holds up your quality of life
Do you have what it takes to finish strong? Juan Pablo Montoya had what it takes in Sunday’s Indianapolis 500. With three laps to go he passed the two leaders and held on to win one of the most prestigious auto races in the world.
A world-class athlete doesn’t happen overnight. In fact, Juan’s career had hit a seven-year lull when someone believed in him. Will you have what it takes to finish strong or will your body collapse under the weight of years of neglect, poor diet, and your inattention to wellness. If you are strong, do you also have the support team of those who believe in you to all make it to the finish line together?
A world-class athlete that wins, even in their later years, never gives up and certainly didn’t start training the day before the big win. They’ve been training all their lives. This is why you can’t wait for a diagnosis of a disease before you take action. Think of all the people who are diagnosed with lung cancer before they decide to stop smoking. The “stop smoking or die” diagnosis from their doctors is what changes their perspective.
So if you want to finish strong in your life, wellness must be a daily habit that you follow. First, eating right is the cornerstone of having enough energy. Next, exercising to keep your muscles toned and strong is the next leg of the stool that holds up your quality of life. And finally, as you age you must also take supplements to help in areas where your body no longer produces enough of the right nutrients so you can have the high-quality life you are used to. If you start doing all these things earlier in your life rather than waiting for that diagnosis, then you, like Mr Montoya, will come screaming across the finish line.
QUESTION: What should readers take away from this message today?

QUESTION: How can readers best apply this information to their lives right now?

COMMENTARY: As Juan Pablo Montoya said after he won the race, it was a team effort. So even if you do everything to stay healthy, are in top condition, and look great, without those who support you it’s likely that you will miss your most meaningful opportunities. That’s what Juan knows about having it all for you and your team to finish strong.
