Is health more important than intelligence?
Experts agree: health and energy are more important than intelligence, writes MSA National managing director and chief legal officer Sam Makhoul.
As I sit here in my office, looking through the glass partition at our MSA National team who do amazing work, it strikes me daily how little of a role intelligence plays in our success. Don't get me wrong, our team are competent and know their stuff, as I am sure you do, but is that enough for success these days?
The message is now very clear. To dominate in your field and build your career or business you don't need to be the smartest person in the room. Not at all. You just need to have the most energy; to move, to think, to work, to love, to parent, to socialise, to inspire, to implement and to craft a life you are in love with. This ALL depends on the physical and emotional energy you bring to your day.
The first mistake
Most people make the mistake of thinking how much they know is their point of difference. Let me tell you, information is everywhere these days and through the use of technology, everyone on the planet is working smarter than ever before. So I ask you, what is the difference between success and mediocrity? What is the difference between those who fail and those who thrive?
We all have 24 hours in the day. So the difference between us all can only be our energy levels. There is no denying that energetic people are sharper, more engaging and have an attractive air of self-confidence about them.
The second mistake
Most people believe that energy levels come down to diet and exercise; yes, these do help, but did you know that your emotional happiness is 5,000 times more powerful than these two physical elements? Which means that how you feel and how you think impact your energy levels in a much more profound way. This in turn impacts your success in a profound way.
I am sharing these thoughts with the greatest respect to you. I too eat healthy and exercise religiously but I have learned that these are NOT the things that make me a successful human being. How we love, how we parent, how we play, how we sleep, what we focus on, the choices we make, who we spend time with, how we work, how we forgive, how we process fear, anger, rejection or failure, ALL impact our energy and ability to live the life we crave.
I hope my sharing these questions does not overwhelm you, I highlight these questions to demonstrate that life is complex and it is our ability to manage all these aspects that makes the difference between a magnificent life and a mediocre one. Sorry to put it like that but I am calling it like it is. I write sincerely; and to manage this complexity you need a framework and daily systems for living.
My invitation to you
I wish success was as easy as listening to an uplifting YouTube viral video or a motivational meme. Our life is much more complex than that and deserves a more personalised approach and system for living; one that we were never taught at school and at work. If you want to learn how to live by a unique framework to upgrade every aspect of your life, install daily rituals, and grow your wealth, then you absolutely need to be in the room with me and a line-up of 10 leading global experts at Upgrade Your Life 2019, January 18-20 at The Hyatt Regency in Sydney Australia.
We have already sold 60 per cent of our ticket allocation so I strongly encourage you to not defer or procrastinate and make the decision that you'll look back on as the single most important decision in your life.
The ticket fee is $1,495, but if you register before 31st October and use our Wellness Daily Discount Code VIP995, you will pay a reduced rate of only $995(saving you $500!). You can also opt to pay a small deposit of $49.95 to reserve your spot.
Honestly, the way I look at it, being in the room with these amazing speakers is actually priceless and is an investment that you'll make back MANY times over... it'll cost you more to NOT attend.
Snap up one of the remaining seats here before they're all gone. Take action and live the life we both know you deserve.
