4 things you need to know about supplements..




The supplement business is certainly growing and will continue to grow into the future. With that said, there's a lot of fluff and hype going around right now. This is my attempt at cutting through the bull and giving you what you need to know. 

Health supplements can be substances you eat or drink. They can be vitamins, minerals, herbs, or different combinations of these. They can be in pill, capsule, tablet, or liquid form. Most people take them for health-related reasons. Some take them for show. Whatever your reason, check this out. I recently read an article that said about 50% of the country supplements; if you're one of these here are a couple of things to consider.

1. All health supplements are NOT created equal.

Health supplements are NOT all made the same way. That sounds simple, but most people don't realize that. Also, concentrations and quality of said vitamin and/or mineral can vary from supplement to supplement. When you're considering choosing one, read the labels so you can compare 'apples to apples.' I'll talk about checking your labels a few times in this article, it's THAT important.

2. You get what you pay for.

If you're taking vitamins because your mother said so, skip this section. If you're supplementing for a purpose, I'd suggest you look at it as an investment in your health. YES, there are probably $1 supplements at your local discount store, but they may not get you closer to your desired result efficiently. Often, supplement manufactures put JUST enough of a specific vitamin in the supplement to have it on the label. CHECK YOUR LABELS! Do your homework. Figure out what concentrations you need for optimum results and figure out what types of supplements will benefit you.

3. They are NOT a substitute for a healthy diet

Supplements are designed to bridge the gap between what you're eating and what you NEED to be eating. It's kind of difficult to get all of the nutrition you need from your diet, especially if you're on the go and not eating properly. Supplementing does NOT give you a pass to disrespect your body, and you cannot live on supplements alone. 

4. There is NO MAGIC PILL

There's nothing MAGIC about supplements. Most of the time they're merely substances you already get from food, this is just more of them in a convenient way. They can definitely help you get your desired results if used properly, but magic? No way. In fact, supplements need your cooperation to work. If you're taking 3908309854 fat burners and eating 3 pizzas and drinking a milkshake for dinner, your fat burners might be ineffective. Another idea to keep in mind. If the claims sound too good to be true, it probably is.

 Be well, and live better.

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry" 
Don't let anybody guilt you into a miserable marriage! 
The majority of married people that you know are miserable because they settled to societal pressures .....even if they won't admit it. 
Some folks out here getting married to say you're married.....but to each his own....as for me and my house if we can't be peaceful, loyal, & ain't eem trying to shoot at the same baskets & pay the same taxes I gotta keep it moving!
This is not to say marriage can't work. I absolutely believe it can, but with the right connection, reasons, and plan! But what do I know? I'm just a fat kid that eats too many crabcakes

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game? 
Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life?
Are you close to it? 
You can’t change the past. 
Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck? 
Was it worth it?
Are you getting what you set out for?
It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures!

People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never created a plan....or if they did tried to exec…

Decade end....

Quick question...
Have you reviewed your decade yet?
I'm in the process of taking some time at the end of this year not only to look at the past year, but to review the past 10 years as the decade comes to a close.
Isn't it amazing how far you've come since 2010 :)
Where were you in your business in 2010?
Where are you now?
What did you start?
What did you end?
What investments did you make?
What skill sets did you learn?
What did you miss out on?

I believe everything happens and unfolds in the way it should... I challenge you to do a personal and business audit. Decide what you want to keep...Decide what you want to discard. Decide what you want to do more of. Decide what you want to do less of. 
Let's make your next move your best move and the rest of your life the best of your life....and make the beginning of this new decade one to remember!
