Fulfillment & Excellence

“Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved” – William Jennings Bryan
In today’s buzzing world things are flying at us at a rate that is faster than ever before. Things that were relevant and dire at one point can become seemingly obsolete the next. The power of rapidly advancing technology grants us better and better tools to use each and every day. And, in an ever-changing reality, we are faced with living from one moment to the next.
It’s a struggle to keep up, especially when our lives are being prescribed to us.
In reading “The Dark Horse” written by Todd Rose and Ogi Ogas, I realized that there is a dichotomy between chasing excellence in a standardized life or chasing fulfillment in a chaotic and uncertain one. Todd makes the argument that by chasing fulfillment we will achieve excellence. This is an important distinction to make, because doing it the other way around means we may never get to feel fulfilled, despite following the recipe or the path we are prescribed.
Fulfilling Your Health
This message really resonated with me, because when I work with people who are interested in improving their health and wellness, most have a preconceived notion of what it means to be healthy – lift weights and start exercising.
When in reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Health and wellness is more about fulfillment and living your best life, rather than chasing excellence by following these preconceived conditions.
That’s why I built the Health Index, a tool that’s used to generate a health score from 0-100. It’ll give you a breakdown of what you can focus on, not just strength or endurance.
In a world where personalized service is becoming the preferred method of delivery, the Health Index will have a detailed report (coming soon), that will allow you to discern what areas of health is most important for you to work on. So if you’re interested, take the quiz, I’d be interested to see what comes up for you!
