So let's say you decided you want to become the best tennis player you possibly can. Would you play tennis once a week and expect to reach your greatest potential? Or would you go to a coach once every six months and expect to fully reach your potential? If you answered yes to either of these questions you have no idea what it really takes to reach your full potential in a sport.
To be the best you can, you will need to have a constant focus and frequently practice what it takes. I am sure there are many tennis gurus out there. It would be wise to read their perspectives and draw from them what works for you. To expect to be your best at tennis without being a bit obsessed with learning as much as you can about how to be great is not realistic.
The same is true regarding health. In the modern world we live we cannot expect to reach our full health and vitality without much time and effort. The norm of a sedentary lifestyle and highly processed food are antithetical to health and vitality. It takes knowledge and constant practice to achieve and maintain health. It also takes prioritizing. We can be pulled in thousands of directions on a daily basis but time must be blocked out for healthy activities and acquiring knowledge. I bet if you asked someone suffering from a chronic sickness whether they wished they spent more time on making money and doing housework or if they wished they had spent more time on cultivating their health they would choose health.
No one can force you to make the needed sacrifices. It has to be a conscious choice by you to do what it takes.
