“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”- 3John 2
Aspiring for greatness in life is something most humans will have, but achieving that greatness is something not everyone will end up doing.
The truth is, there is no short cut to success. Every person out there who has achieved greatness in life will vouch for that. They are where they are because they have put in hard work to get to where they are. And very often, you might belittle yourself and think that you’re not someone who can go far in life.
Let’s take a look at the three dimensional preparations for greatness:
THE PHYSICAL HEALTH
The first dimensional health preparation for greatness is the physical health. Chances are, successful people that you know have conditioned their bodies to be healthy and strong. Why? Because they know that without a healthy and strong body, you won’t have the physical energy to achieve greatness in life.
There are no short cuts in life. Successful people have toiled and paid their dues to get to where they are, and they can tell you about the long hours of work needed in order to achieve their dreams.
Start by eating right, and sleeping right. And with good physical habits, you’ll start feeling better as time goes by.
You might also like to consider exercising, and taking vitamins or supplements to help you out too. But if not, at the very least, exercise regularly, eat right, and adopt good sleeping habits.
THE MENTAL HEALTH
The second dimensional health preparation for greatness is the mental health. Achieving greatness will require expertise and knowledge. Without those, you cannot make it. So is there something you have to learn to attain your dreams? If so, don’t hesitate. The sooner you learn and pick up those skills and knowledge, the closer you are to tasting the sweetness of your dreams.
And never forget to keep learning . Successful people are learning constantly to keep up, so don’t forget that.
THE EMOTIONAL HEALTH
The third dimensional health preparation for greatness is the emotional health. What if I told you that you don’t want greatness in life, which is why you aren’t achieving it?
It’s true! Very often, we sabotage our own success because deep down inside, we all believe that we deserve only a certain level of success, and some higher greatness is not something we deserve.
Furthermore, if we were to successfully achieve greatness, we fear that we can’t handle it. That is why we shy away from achieving greatness even though we aren’t consciously aware of it. So what can you do to stop that? Condition your mind, starting now, for greatness in life.
Start visualizing that you can indeed achieve greatness in life, and that you will be able to handle that greatness. The more you do that, the more greatness becomes more real to you.
But let me warn you. You might end up thinking it’s a stupid exercise. Just do it and you will be surprised at the result.
As you can see all aspects mentioned above deal with your entire well-being. Which means to say that if you want to achieve greatness in life, all the aspects of your health have to be watched out for.
So remember, don’t just take care of your physical needs and neglect the other two dimensions, and vice versa. Take care of them all, and achieving greatness in life will be within your grasp.
Now let us touch another area connected to greatness.
