Recently I was having a lazy afternoon and spent a little time flipping through the TV channels. I ended up watching an episode of “Flip or Flop” on HGTV where people flip houses for profit.
It’s certainly nothing new. People find something old and refurbish it into something that can be re-sold for a profit.
A few years back TV really caught on to this flipping idea and shows about flipping houses, flipping cars, and flipping flea market finds seemed to be all the rage.
As I watched this episode something clicked…
Many of us are motivated by saving money. We clip coupons, we climb the corporate ladder, and we get as much mileage as we can from our car. We know what gas station has the lowest prices and we do a lot of holiday shopping on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
We’re willing to put in the work to flip a house or even flip our career. We’ll start with one thing and work like crazy to get something greater in return – a new positon, for example.
But why do we treat our bodies like garbage disposals?
Is it possible to flip our bodies?
Is it possible to start with what we have, do some hard work, and get something of higher value in return?
What you don’t see on those TV shows is that every flip requires a ton of planning. There is a road map that professionals use to get the house from point A to point B.
Without this detailed professional plan the project would take too much time, lose too much money, and usually end up costing the flippers everything (usually their life savings and relationship).
So the flippers put up the money for the flip and deals with the stress of doing the flip (corralling contractors, re-selling it at the proper price point, timelines, budgets, etc.).
The professionals develop the plan. The professionals guide the couple on what to spend the money on… and what not to.
It’s my job to develop the plan for your body flip. I will guide you on what to eat and what not to eat. It’s my job to show you what workout to do and how to do it so that you avoid injury.
All you need to do is work the program. Use your resources, follow the plan, and at the end you’ll be left with something that is priceless – your health.
Think about that.
Flipping houses or cars or flea market junk is one thing, but flipping your health literally extends your life. It lowers your medical bills and insurance costs. You could have less sick days which means more money in your pocket.
It means more happiness, more confidence, more self-esteem, and more body positivity. It means more play time with your kids or grandkids.
That is priceless.
So as you think about your life and your goals… be sure to consider flipping your health as a top priority. There is so much to gain and so little to lose. For those of you with a business or financial mindset think of it this way… there is so little risk or downside to flipping your health.
