According to the CDC every year 14 million people find out they have cancer.
And 8 million people die of cancer each year.
That means a less than 50% survival rate.
With statistics like that most everyone knows someone that has been impacted by cancer.
I certainly have my own very personal story.
Benjamin Franklin has been quoted as saying:
The problem is that getting people to change behavior based on preventing some potential future threat is not likely to happen.
Even if the threat is most eminent people most don’t change.
One study title ‘Compliance in heart failure patients: the importance of knowledge and beliefs’ looked at just how little most people changed behaviors like eating and exercising after suffering a heart attack when the doctors told them they need to or they would DIE.
The good news is that YOU can CHANGE if you WANT to.
Cancer and heart disease are largely preventable.
Even if you’re diagnosed with them, there’s still a lot you can do.
The problem is lots of people wait until they’re too close to the end to make the shifts they need if they do at all. Sometimes it can be too late.
Here’s how I look at things.
I don’t really look in terms of prevention myself. Its not fun. Its not sexy. Its not really motivating to do things now to prevent a possibility in the future.
Instead, I look in terms of PERFORMANCE.
To keep in tip top shape, ever improving, to help myself run multiple businesses, lead a very happy life, and become ridiculously strong, following even standard health advice ain’t going to cut it.
I need the cutting edge.
I need ancient wisdom.
I need small hinges that can swing big doors.
And I want a lot of them.
The more the better! This way, things you do TODAY impact what you can do TODAY. Much better for motivation.
I absorb information like a sponge. Typically I’m reading about 7 books at any one time.
And I put that info into action. Like Bruce Lee I take what is useful and discard the rest.
When it comes to health there is a LOT you can do.
And I’ve compiled most of my favorite tips from the past four or five years into this new book.
They’re easy to use steps. You don’t need to turn your life upside down.
Try just one tip today. Keep at it for a week.
Do you like it? Keep doing it. Not working for you? Skip it.
Then add the next tip…and next…and next.
Soon you will achieve Radiant Health. That term means Health Beyond Danger.
No sickness. No disease.
And as a side benefit your performance will improve.
