Exercise Makes You Smarter


Tom Corley boats - crop

In my five year study of the daily habits of the rich and poor (Rich Habits Study – Background on Methodology), 76% of the successful engaged in some form of daily exercise, predominantly aerobic exercise. Conversely, 77% of the poor did no exercise at all.

It’s no coincidence that self-made millionaires exercise consistently.

Researchers from the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland identified a gene, called Mtss1L, which is activated by aerobic exercise. This particular gene, when toggled on, boosts the connections among brain cells in the hippocampus, a part of the brain associated with learning and memory.

Exercise toggles it on. Lack of exercise keeps the gene turned off.

Those who consistently exercise, while engaged in the pursuit of success, have a competitive advantage over those who do not exercise. They essentially have a gene working for them, who’s sole purpose is to make them smarter.

Imagine having a gene, who’s sole purpose is to make you smarter. What an edge!

Oftentimes, the difference between success and failure, particularly among Dreamers-Entrepreneurs, is infinitesimal. Exercise gives you an edge. This edge can make all the difference in the world, tipping the scales in your favor.

Success, and the wealth that success produces, is a process. Exercise is an important part of that process.

Lace up your sneakers. Your future success may very well depend on it.
