Wealth vs. Health
Without money you can`t afford good gym equipment,
the right foods, and even supplements. When you`re
living in poverty you have to do everything possible
to accomplish your goals without worrying about
your financial problems.I came from a family where
our income was always good. During my late teen
years my parents ran into some medical problems
and our family income wasn`t very good. I had
severe depression at the time and couldn`t maintain
a solid job. I felt that the world was coming
down on me and that I wouldn`t be able to accomplish
anything in this sport. I could only train with
bodyweight exercises and two 20 pound dumbells.
The only healthy food I had access to were peas,
oats, eggs, and orange juice for post workout.
I didn`t have much but I had due with what I had.You
have to have a little bit of money to accomplish
anything in bodybuilding. When your almost living
in poverty it will become much easier once you
learn to accept it and do your best to overcome
your financial problems. You can start by writing
down ways to bring in an income no matter what
type of education or background you`ve came from.
You need to set small obtainable goals just like
you would in bodybuilding. The more time you spend
looking for money, the less time you have to worry
about your body.
The key word here is balance. You need to develop
ways to find a balance between wealth and health.When
I first started bodybuilding I was overweight
and had no self-esteem to even get up and find
a job. My confidence levels sky rocketed once
I started seeing results and it also gave me the
mindset that anything is possible. Your financial
status will vary depending on how big your goals
are. If your goal is to become the next Olympia
you won`t be able to afford much but if you just
bodybuilding to be healthy, then you can become
successful in almost anything you do just using
the methods you`ve used to accomplish great results
with your body.
Wealth and health go together but at the same
time they are the exact opposite. Goals, family
commitments, social support, are all different
factors when it comes to dealing with how much
you can spend on bodybuilding. You almost have
to spend a little bit of money on making yourself
better but the investment is worth it.
