Good health has been, by far, the most consistent predictor of success in the workplace. With that in mind, I believe it is important to look at the impact of health and nutrition on the individual and society as a whole. This is because health and wellness are becoming increasingly important as we face major changes in the way we live and work.
We should take the time to keep ourselves healthy and healthy people are very successful in the workforce. We can be pretty proud of the fact that people who are well-nourished are more productive and have a higher probability of success in the workplace. I’m sure you’re curious about what the studies say but I’m sure it’s not as exciting as getting the flu.
The studies on health and career success are a bit scattered, but one piece of research suggests that a person who is in good health has a 60 percent greater probability of success in the workforce. This is because the more we exercise our body and mind, the better we feel and the better we perform. The longer we can stay in good health, the more likely we will be to stay healthy and stay productive.
Is this true? And does it actually predict what people do? I mean, sure, it might help keep your productivity up, but does it really help you? Do you really need to be in the best condition to succeed? What if you really were in the worst condition? This is one of those questions that leads to more discussion than you’d think.
A great book on building confidence and motivation in your work is The New York Times best seller, The Confident Man. It’s not a quick read, but it’s a great read. It talks about how confidence is built over time. It also tells you how you can put in the time that will help you build it.
I am one of those people who don’t give a damn about how sick I am. I don’t go to the doctor because I’m afraid of the results. I don’t take medicine because I don’t care about the side effects. I don’t go to the doctor because I’m afraid of the cost of the visit. I don’t drive because I’m afraid of the possible consequences. Most people are like that. I am not one of those people.
The study of health and career success shows that confidence is a product of practice, not illness. In other words, you can train yourself to be confident by giving it a good go. In fact you can make a lot of difference in your life if you train yourself to be confident. That’s what you should do if you want a successful career. Take the time to study yourself and find out what makes you strong and confident and what makes you weak and unsure.
I am not that confident. I usually get a little nervous when someone asks me a question. I don’t like to get nervous, so I like to avoid giving too much information. I have to be careful though because I tend to give too much information when I’m nervous. But I think I can get myself through the hard times if I just work at it. I am not an expert in this, so maybe I should just go with the flow.
A lot of people think that a person who has a high level of health is also one who is very confident and strong. And a lot of people have a lot of confidence. But I think that too much health can make you weak (which is bad for confidence and job performance). There are two main reasons for that. First, it can encourage you to be overly fussy. You have to take care of yourself in a way that is not just for your own good.
Second, the more fussy you are, the less attention you can pay to other details and tasks. And if you’re the type who can’t make small talk, then you’ll tend to be very fussy. So you can’t just be fussy, but you need to be fussy to be fussy. I’ve found that people who don’t like attention issues tend to have a hard time with health issues. But it’s not just because of the attention issue.
