[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hat if I told you that living a healthy lifestyle is all in your mind and you can think and grow rich by becoming healthier? It has nothing to do with what you put in your mouth or how active you are, nor do you have to buy any crazy fitness equipment. You'd be pretty excited wouldn't you?
Well, it's very possible that this is exactly what's holding you back. One of the most influential books in the world states that living a healthy lifestyle is a path to riches.
Napoleon Hill recognized this concept in his book Think And Grow Rich. If you haven't read this I suggest you pick up a copy now.
He says that two of the biggest flaws of people not achieving their fullest potential are lack of discipline and ill-health.
Lack of discipline
Napoleon Hill explains that discipline comes through self-control. You must control all negative qualities before you can begin controlling conditions.
Think of your body weight or stress level. Before you can begin changing these conditions you must first change the qualities that are creating them.
He goes on to explain that self-mastery is the hardest job you'll ever encounter.

Your best friend and your greatest enemy can be seen by stepping in the mirror" -Napoleon Hill [TWEET THIS][/dropshadowbox]
The second limitation of success that Napoleon Hill talks about is ill-health. Living a healthy lifestyle is important to the success we seek.
You cannot enjoy outstanding success without taking care of yourself. Many causes of this problematic scenario is subject to mastery and control. The typical causes are:
1) Foods which are not conducive to health
2) Bad thoughts
3) Wrong use of sex
4) Lack of proper physical exercise
5) Inadequate supply of fresh air
In order to reach your greatest, your mind and body must perform at its greatest. Ill health limits your potential to meet your goals, achieve riches, encounter happiness or whatever you're striving to obtain.
