You don’t have to be an athlete to want to experience peak performance. Articles about peak performance often speak directly to world class athletes. At The 100 Year Lifestyle we talk about peak performance and the athlete in all of us. We want everyone to perform at the maximum of their ability as much as possible over the course of a long lifetime!
Mindset and Lifestyle
According to Tony Robbins, author and coach, peak performance is both a mindset and a lifestyle. 100 Year Lifestyle has long been speaking and writing about essential elements of peak performance such as positive mental outlook and happiness. We have also written specifically about peak performance and the psychology of winning from the athletes perspective.
While you may not be dedicated to a sport—professionally or recreationally—if you are looking towards living at 100% for 100 years, then you should be embracing the peak performance mindset and lifestyle that the 100 Year Lifestyle offers.
As we’ve celebrated Centenarians Day (September 22) on social media, we’ve heard for ourselves the wisdom of people living to 100 and beyond. So many of their “secrets” are focused on maintaining a positive mental outlook.
I think [people] have to be curious. They have to be interested in life outside their little aches and pains. They have to be excited about seeing new things, meeting new people, watching a new play — just passionate about life. Author Bel Kaufman, died in 2014 at age 103
I just love living every day and doing the best I can. It’s a simple thing. Onie Ponder passed away on December 31, 2010 at the age of 112. She was the world’s 21st oldest living person at the time.
Combine this positive mental outlook with regular chiropractic care and the other positive choices that come with quality self-care and you are living at peak performance—you are embracing the 100 Year Lifestyle!
Extreme examples of people who rely heavily on their physical skills, athletes are also just people. They are people looking to prolong their health and achieve longevity. As such, they are always on the lookout for the best tools to help them achieve their goals and give them the competitive edge.
Barry Bonds, considered to be one of the greatest baseball players of all time, required that there was a personal chiropractor available to him at every game (home and away) during his career. This record holder retired at the age of 43 from a sport where the average retirement age is 29.5.
I go to my chiropractor on a regular basis because I want to prolong my career as long as possible.
Top athletes who attest to the benefits of chiropractic include Evander Holyfield, Tom Brady, Tiger Woods, Jerry Rice, and Michael Jordan – just to name a few!
Get and Give
One award-winning athlete went beyond getting regular chiropractic care to giving it. A legendary Minnesota Vikings kicker, Fred Cox, played football from 1963-1977. In 1972 (while playing), he earned a chiropractic degree and went on to help others as a chiropractor for 16 years after he retired from football.
As we finish up our month of celebrating the 126th birthday of chiropractic care, and the centenarians among us, we are really celebrating life’s possibilities and potential. When you take care of yourself, make positive, long-term choices, find things in life that interest you and bring you joy—then you are living your best 100 Year Lifestyle—and you, too, are experiencing peak performance!
