When I was much younger, my siblings and I played all the major sports, depending on the season. During football season, we played football; baseball season, baseball; basketball season, basketball and so on. It's amazing how athletic we were - not professionals, just kids having fun.
Today, I watch all the major sports. But I play only tennis. It's just my sport of choice. I'll play it day and night. I try to play it at least 2 or 3 times a week. I might not cause Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal to shake in their tennis shoes just yet but I think I'm pretty good.
So how did I get to this point? A few years ago I went to the doctor for my annual check up. After doing the initial checks, she asked me about my diet and exercise. Never before was I asked those questions during a check up.
Many men hardly reach their life expectancy because of chasing of the almighty dollar while ignoring the "more mighty" health. Why seek millions and billions and not be able to enjoy life?
Certainly, there must be room for achieving financial success so we can provide for our families and give them the security they deserve. But there must be balance. If we neglect our health, our families might end up enjoying our success without us. If that happens when we could have avoided it by doing the simple things like eating right and exercising, then that would be tragic.
