The survival of the fittest

The heading to this article has been deliberately chosen.

The saying is as old as the hills and its significance has not gone unnoticed here. Even today, that saying has been abused in the most derogatory ways. This is to say that superior, strong-willed men and women will always survive while weaker peers will continue to struggle. But little thought or expression has been given to legacies. How do you tell a child that is born into a world of poverty or hardship that it is all his fault and he must just buck up, usually against all the odds?

But it is against all the odds that many men and women have survived.

And boy, have they thrived. This is because they steeled themselves mentally and physically. Mentally, they took on the positive view to life and always believed that they were doing the right thing in regard to making ends meet and, finally, making progress in their lives. They have braced themselves for long years of discipline and have come out on top. The perception has been created among many negative people that says that the world’s most successful people always had a leading edge.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The most successful people in this world have also taken the time and trouble to implement all those habits famously practiced by successful people. One of the best-practiced habits is to always live and eat well. This does not mean adopting hedonistic habits which, in any case, can be harmful to one’s physical and mental well-being. To live and eat well simply means to be physically active, exercise routines included, and to implement health and balanced eating plans which are good for body and soul.
