Ever thought about the common thing among all the influential leaders across the world? Is it their leadership qualities? Is it their attitude? It is their intellectuality? Is it their ability to win over odds? Philosophers might argue about these questions over centuries, but I have found a very simple thing that is common among all the influential leaders.
That quality is that, they were never fat during their peak years. I can’t think of a single influential leader who was fat during his peak years. Note, there is a distinction between being fat and being obese. Obesity is a disease, whereas being fat is laziness. From Mahatma Gandhi to Barrack Obama, from Nelson Mandela to Abraham Lincoln… none of them were fat.
Also, the larger question is, does success relates to fitness? Statistically, it appears to be true. Success indeed is dependent on the fitness of the person. People with athletic abilities are more chances of being successfull in life than fatsos. I list out the following reasons
1. By birth, if there is anything that accompanies a person is his/her physical body. If a person has already compromised with his own body, he/she can compromise on anything. Making compromises doesn’t lead to success.
2. Long term success is always achieved by persistent hard work.
