The body is a crazy thing. You can neglect it like the majority of Americans, and it will keep performing for much longer than it should. However, at some point everything breaks down and so too shall you. I urge you, however to not neglect the great machine that God has given you. Push yourself to your limits, see what you’re made of.
The constant pursuit of knowledge is so great and powerful, but without the body to control you are only half a person.
The same can be also be said for the other side of the coin. If you have achieved an elite level of fitness, don’t neglect your mind. The idea of only increasing one part of your life reminds me of the man who builds a large house on a shaky foundation. It may look good from the outside but someday the faults that lie in your foundation will be exposed and ultimately bring your ruin.
Find Balance, See Success.
