Hey everybody! Michael Gebben here, your Jumpstarterfor life.
You’re probably wondering why I’ve got a helmet and sunglasses on here.
Well, I’m super pumped to be doing these videos more on the go, wherever I’m at,what I’m doing behind the scenes.
I’ve got a really short story for you frommy man, Richard Branson that I learned.
It was a very very valuable lesson.
He was tellingthis story about how he’s gonna give the secret to success.
He’s building up, buildingup and he’s building up.
I won’t do all the build up besides the build up and sayingit.
Basically, he got down to a very very simple thing.
He said, “I work out.
” That’swhat gives him the energy to perform at a peak level.
I’m out here on a beautiful beautiful bikride.
There’s this amazing path and I go my bike down there.
Earlier today, I wenton a walk with my girlfriend and my little dog Bauer.
It’s just gorgeous outside.
Whenit’s not nice outside, no matter what it’s like outside, I go for a walk with my grandpaevery morning at the mall.
I just find that so many people make excusesthat they don’t have time or it’s gonna wear them out.
I can tell you right now thatworking out and taking care of yourself give you the energy that you need.
It providesthe energy you need to do amazing, amazing things.
That walk every morning at the mallwith my grandpa is the best way to start the day.
Then, I’m able to go 100% most of theday.
You know, we all wear out.
But the reality is, I can go so much morethan if I get up and start working and don’t have that routine in the morning.
Then onthe weekends, I still go on little bike rides.
It doesn’t have to be much.
What I findis fitness is so important but we complicate it far too much.
Just find what works foryou.
‘Coz a 10-minute walk every single day is better than a 2-hour walk once a month.
Another big thing for me is just water allthe time.
I drink lots of water to hydrate myself.
What do you do to take care of yourself?Do you ever find the time, the 10 minutes to just get out and go for a walk? I’lltell you, that’s also when I have the best ideas.
Just get outside instead of just sittingbehind a computer all day every day.
That will drain you more than anything.
I’m not one who wants to bust my butt andsweat like crazy.
I just wanna keep it simple.
Just get outside, go for a walk, go for asimple bike ride or go to the mall when I notice it’s not nice outside.
It’s justgreat and it really boosts my mood, my energy and it makes me feel good.
When I feel good,I could do great things.
That’s what I want for each and every single one of you.
Just find time this week to get outside, gofor a walk, go for a bike ride.
Why I say keep it simple? Find that one thing that youcan sustain ‘coz it’s better to keep it simple and do the 10 minutes every day thanit is to freaking walk once a month or once a year.
Do things in life with fitness andhealth that are sustainable.
Rock and roll my friends.
Have an outstandingweek.
I will talk to you again tomorrow.
