// WALL STREET JOURNAL // There’s an old story about two young men.
Growing up, these two young men were very similar.
They both had above average intelligence, above average work ethic and above average grades.
After High School, they both left their small hometown and went off to college on opposite sides of the country.
25 years later, both of these men attended a High School reunion. They were both married to beautiful women, lived in a nice home and great children. However, there was one difference. One man was a manager of a division of a multi-national company, while the other man owned the entire company.
This story was initially told in the Wall Street Journal over 30 years ago, but it went on to make a serious point:
In our lives, we have moments where we have a big decision to make. For many of you, that decision is whether or not to invest in your health.
It’s a big decision because you need to FULLY COMMIT in order to fully transform.
Right now, you’re standing at the crossroads.
Turn left, and in one year’s time your body will look almost exactly the same as it does today. You’ll have the same amount of muscle, the same level of leanness, the same feeling of confidence when you look in the mirror.
Or you can turn right… [+] Turning right means you’ll pack on slabs of muscle faster than you have in years (you’ll be growing as quickly as you did when you first started working out)... [+] Turning right means you’ll get leaner than you’ve been in years, with a metabolism roaring faster than a Lamborghini and 6-pack abs popping like a fitness models... [+] Turning right means you’ll have a sense of control over your life that comes from taking control of your body (giving you an unstoppable confidence).
Turning left means you continue doing what you’ve always done. Going through the same old workouts and eating the same old meals.
It’s safe. It’s comfortable. It’s what most people will choose to do.
But then there’s a second option: putting yourself in the challenging environment with leaders who will push you over the finish line.
