Watching a professional athlete perform—a swimmer’s powerful arms propelling her through the water, a shooting guard’s perfectly floated three-pointer—is a thing of raw beauty. And although you may never compete in the Olympics or the NBA, you can aspire to peak physical performance, in athletics and in all other aspects of your life.
Just as all those hours in the weight room allow a tennis player to dominate on the court, your own athleticism lays the foundation for manifesting your most fulfilling life. Whether you sweat it out on the yoga mat or literally climb mountains, working toward your own peak performance will empower you to reach new heights in your career, relationships, spirituality and free time.
You already know how great exercise is for you—it improves your health, brightens your outlook, focuses your mind and even makes you live longer (not bad if you’re seeking the ultimate in boldness and fulfillment). So if you’re all-in for a more daring, adventurous life, it’s time to get a move on.
