Building an Internet Marketing Business, or any business online or offline for that matter, takes a number of skills and personal traits.

You need energy to stay motivated and to keep going, you need to be able to focus on the tasks at hand, you need discipline to get things done and not give up, you need concentration help keep you focused and on-task.  You need self-confidence to believe in yourself, and you need feel good about yourself.

All of these you can get through maintaining and improving your physical health.



A physically healthy body comes from a combination of good diet and exercise, and one result of a healthy body is that it has more energy.

A lack of energy leads to a lack of motivation to get things done, a lack of desire to put in the effort necessary to succeed at whatever your goals are.


Focus & Concentration

Without the distractions of poor health and low energy levels you are better able to focus your mind and concentrate on other tasks, such as work, hobbies, or building your Internet Marketing Business.

If you are unable to focus long enough to get important tasks done, you will struggle trying to build your online business.



Managing your diet and holding to an exercise routine of some kind involves structure and discipline.

Developing discipline to manage your physical health leads to discipline throughout other aspects of your life.



A balanced diet and regular physical activity leads to a healthier body.  Feeling good and looking good leads to confidence in oneself.

Confidence is a mental trait, and when one is confident about their body and health, it tends to spill over into other areas in your life.


Feel Good Factor

Once you get into a healthy routine of a balanced diet and an appropriate amount of exercise, overtime, you develop a feel-good factor about yourself.

You look better, have less health issues, have more energy, and have more motivation; you become more disciplined and more focused; this all leads to a general feel-good factor about yourself.

Feeling good about you and feeling confident about yourself are key elements when building your own online business, and the most beneficial way of doing this is through a healthy diet and balanced exercise.
