My mother always taught me to eat well. We would often reach a negotiation whereby if I ate all of my vegetables at dinner, In return, I would be allowed out on the green to play. My mother understood the importance of healthy eating whereas I always thought she was forcing me to eat green balls of slime to be malicious. My father enrolled me into my local soccer club and I could never grasp why. However, as the years flew by and I began to grow as a child, I learnt that this was all for my own good as he just wanted whats best for me which was maintaining a good physical health. As I matured and became more aware of the world around me, I saw that health is apart of my everyday routine and although I may not have understood it at the time, I can see that the role it plays is more vital than anything else in the world. Due to the sheer egotistical and self-centred actions of many people around the world today, people are growing up thinking that money can solve everything.
To keep good health, no money is needed. This fact is often abandoned due to common phrase often used- money makes the world go round. Even if you have all the money in the world, health will always swoop in and take first place when it comes to importance. Steve Jobs was one of the worlds richest men, owning one of the biggest companies in the world and having a total net worth of about 7 billion dollars. However, that did not stop his cancer from heartlessly taking away his life, at the young age of 56. Despite owning a tremendous portion of the worlds money, he could not buy health, proving that wealth is irrelevant if you dont have the air in your lungs.
If health is lost, everything is lost such as the capacity to work which can lead to many catastrophes such as poverty and misery. if good health was abolished, we would simply fade away along with the rest of the world. To conclude, my health will always be my main focus on life- mentally and physically. I believe that if i dont live life with a good mental outlook, i will achieve nothing.I perfectly agree with the maxim health is wealth. Unfortunately, very few care about this wealth. People spend sleepless days and nights, running after material wealth forgetting that the first step to acquire material wealth is to have good health.
