Exercise: The Confidence Booster
On our brightest days, we wake up with the roosters, whip out the faithful “To-Do” list and start tackling revenue generating tasks with fervor and vigor.
But what sparks you into action on those days when feelings of powerlessness and despair paralyzes you into inaction? The days when the failures outweigh successes, the mortgage payment looms larger than the balance in your bank account, prospects are avoiding your calls and NOTHING you’ve tried is working? What sparks you into action???
Mental fitness is essential to the success of an entrepreneur who has to kill what he eats. For me, a heart pumping, endorphin boosting workout never fails to leave me with a state of mental clarity that gets the creative juices flowing again and makes me feel like the world is my oyster.
We all know that regular exercise helps you stay physically fit. But the power of exercise to keep you lean and strong mentally and striking on all cylinders should not be overlooked. Exercise stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers that not only fight disease, but promotes happiness and increased confidence, and reduces stress, feelings of anxiety, fear, and hopelessness – for hours after a workout.
Research has found that as little as 5-8 minutes of aerobic exercise is enough to get those “feel good” endorphins flowing to get your body and your mind back in the game and stomping with the big dogs.
