Your Great Goal in Life A Healthy and Fit YOU
By Ismael D. Tabije
I have accomplished my physical rejuvenation at seventy-two through persistent exercising. I know the same satisfactory results are possible for any one who will follow my ex¬ample. The question is, "Will you do so?" The majority will say, "That man has some good ideas," and add, "I feel that I do need a methodical system of exercise, and when I have time I may take this up."
You might as well say you have no time to eat or sleep. You can't be healthy unless you exercise. Health should be your first consideration. Financial success and other things are of secondary importance, for with health, strength and elasticity of body the chances of financial success are greatly in¬creased. Without these attributes, the greatest financial success is of but little value.
How many of our knowledge workers — our businessmen and professionals — have sacrificed health and happiness by following the paradox, "I am too busy — I have no time to take care of my health"? There is only one result to a life upon these lines — an early breakdown is inevitably certain. Many have accomplished great wealth in exchange for their health, but have spent that wealth in vainly endeavoring to regain their former, but now wasted, physical vigor.
I don't criticize financial success. Wealth is a very good thing to have. But the greatest financial success will not compensate for ill health. Better slow down now, before it is too late, and find the time to make yourself healthy and fit. Otherwise you may meet your Maker earlier than you should.
Another objection often raised is, "I am too old." If I, a chronic dyspeptic at fifty, with adverse hereditary and physical conditions and unfavorable environments, have been able to patch myself up and am now as good as new, then you, too, can surely have the same success. You are never too old. Try it. Start now and you will succeed.
It is true that to be in the best physical con¬dition does require unremitting attention. But the end is worth the means, for the reward is health, strength, and lon¬gevity — the real riches in the world. Just try to imagine a situation where you are wealthy but sickly. Life is certainly going to be miserable.
Just as engineers and expert machinists, em¬ployed to care for the intricate machinery of a great ship, are forever polish¬ing up and looking after the various details of that machinery in order that it may have its highest efficiency; so the complicated ma¬chinery of the human body must be assiduously and intelligently cared for, or it will surely deteriorate.
There is no "royal road to health." It cannot be bought. If you would possess it you must work for it. But the way is easy, the work not hard. Try the easy, proven and inexpensive method of acquiring health—exercise.
"DO IT NOW." Begin tomorrow morning.
