Your Health Is Your Greatest Wealth

Hey. Mike Agugliaro, business warrior, and I got this thing cramming me in today. I don’t even know, and I’ve been trying to figure out what this crazy-ass little lizard is here that they have here. We got a lizard. It’s a bearded dragon. It was about this big. The thing’s like this big now. It’s nuts.
But we’re not talking about the lizard or bearded dragon. Here’s what we’re talking about. Do you want a healthy business? Good answer for me. Do you want a healthy business? Yes or no? Of course you do. Who doesn’t want a healthy business? But here’s the deal. I’m going to tell you. As a business owner, a manager, a leader, a CEO, whatever you are, president, vice president, it doesn’t matter. If you’re not healthy, your business will not be healthy. I guarantee, because here’s the deal. Your health is your first wealth.
I know that if you want to see any one thing suffer a company, it’s the leadership suffering their own personal health. If you’re not going to go at it and pay attention to your health and create a healthy environment where you work and make sure you’re coming in leading by the way you hold yourself, by the food you eat, by the habits, by the exercise, by whatever you do. I’m not here to teach you how to be healthy. I’m here to bring awareness to something that I learned. Unhealthy business owner, eventually you will be an unhealthy business. I don’t know if anybody can prove me wrong on that. Healthy business owner, lots of energy, normally healthy business. Now, if it’s a really healthy business owner and a shitty business, he might be doing too much in the gym instead of bringing that energy into the company so he has endurance to implement things.
I want to tell you, look, pay attention to your own health. It’s the number one thing. It’s actually for most people … if you look at the population today, and I’m guessing. I don’t have the statistic, but for me looking around, it’s like 85% of the people are suffering with this. They’re struggling. I get it. It’s too easy. It’s way too easy. McDonald’s is there. Burger King’s here. Smashburger’s there. I mean it’s too easy to get food, and it’s too easy to get bad food. Then when you drive it with the chemicals they put in it, it’s almost an unfair advantage that you’re fighting. I get it.
But here’s the deal. The deal is when you make a conscious decision, and I know, my wife was just telling me [inaudible [00:02:24]. She’s like, “You know, not everybody’s extreme like you, Mike. Not everybody can just make a switch.” But no. I think when you look at what the future could look like if you don’t switch … I’m gluten free. I’m caffeine free. I’m candy bar free. Now, you guys are like, hell no. Hell, I ain’t even watching another one of this wacko’s videos, because I love bread. I love bread, too.
But here’s the deal. When I look at my current situation, my beautiful wife, my beautiful kids, and what they want from me, and I just project into the future a little bit. I say, what do I want in the future? Do I want to enjoy being a grandparent if they have kids? Yeah. Do I want to be a grandparent who just can’t walk or can’t run or can’t fish and throw? No, I don’t want to be that way. Do I want to be a grandparent that the kids have to come and feel bad for, he’s not healthy? No. I want to lead by example. I understand that my decisions today, my decisions today affect my future, my future health. I’m not crazy enough to think that what I’m doing today is not going to affect the future. Everything you do affects the future in a positive or negative way. Don’t get all freaky on me, Mike. No. It affects it in some way, either better than you like it or worse than you like it.
Let’s simplify it. Here’s what I want to tell you. Please, if anything you do, lead by example, make your health your number-one priority, not only in your business but for yourself. Take action. I know it’s not easy. What should you do? I’m not that guy. You should get yourself a health coach. You should get one who’s on there that will hold you accountable, build a plan, check what vitamins you need, get on a routine, and keep on you all the time. That’s what you should do, because when you look at the cost of having that type of support versus the outcome of not having that support, guess what? It just makes all the sense in the world.
All right. Get started now. Just do some jumping jacks or something. All right. I’m committed to helping you get what? Massive wealth, tons of freedom, market domination. Get started today. I’m rooting for you. I am. I’m rooting for you.
