Life Performance Blog: Do you Have A Reason For Being Healthy?

What do you value? Dig down for a second.

• What's most important to you in life? Why? • What kind of person do you want to be? Why?

Are you living those values? Chances are not as well as you'd like.

When we don’t do what we believe or feel in our gut to be "right", we don't feel good. And our bodies show it.

Knowing what's important to us and why gives us direction and purpose.

If we live according to those values, life (and often, good health) "flows" almost effortlessly.

We get — and stay — strong and powerful.

We also need to know why these things matter to us.

Do your actions match your values?

The “5 Whys” was a system originally used by the Toyota Motor Corporation. It’s very simple and really cuts to the core of why we want something.

When you want to accomplish something (or if something goes wrong), you ask one why.

Why do I want to accomplish this?

Then, with whatever answer you come up with, you ask why to that first answer.

And so on, five times.
