Lebron James, legendary NBA star, spends an estimated 1.5 million dollars each year to care for his health and wellness.
And this enormous expenditure is actually a wise investment for him.
Lebron James currently has a two-year, 85 million dollar contract—all of which depends upon his ability to perform and play well. His body is his most important asset. And a $1.5 million dollar investment into it allows him to secure an enormous return.
One of James’ former teammates explained it this way: “Where a lot of people don’t do it, he puts a lot of money behind taking care of his body…that big expense has allowed him to make a lot more money for a long period of time.”
So if one of the most successful people in the world yields long-term value from investing in his health, why don’t other kinds of high-achievers do likewise?
The Value of Your Energy: An Unequal Balance
The average CEO in the United States makes over 775,000 dollars annually.
Yet, for many of these top executives, caring for their bodies is an afterthought. While being healthy might be a goal of theirs, they often don’t make the connection between their performance and their wellness.
But they should.
In today’s corporate world, there is a missed opportunity for higher achievement when it comes to health.
It’s not rocket science that the healthier you are, the more productive you can be. Afterall, things like micronutrient deficiencies, sleep apnea and poor mental health (all of which frequently go undiagnosed) can decrease your cognitive functioning and ability to concentrate.
How Much Is Your Energy Worth?
For top executives who depend on tremendous amounts of energy, stamina and mental clarity to do their jobs well, you’d think that health optimization would be their priority.
But oftentimes, it is not
In order to help make clear the tangible importance and impact of their health, we’ve done a rough calculation of what the energy of an average CEO in the U.S. is really worth:
Assuming the CEO works all 52 week out of the year, this is how much their energy output is worth:
Essentially, every minute of their day, the average CEO produces almost four entire dollars worth of energy (or work).
That’s a lot of energy output.
The question then remains: how much money are these CEOs investing into their input?
In other words, how much do they spend on rejuvenating their bodies? On revitalizing their wellness? Or on regenerating their health and expanding their longevity?
For many CEOs, the answer is not very much. They overlook the value in expanding their health potential and optimizing their minds and bodies.
But in reality, could their energy output be even greater if their energy input increased?
At EDISON BIO, we believe that the answer to that question is a resounding yes.
EDISON BIO helps the highest-achieving people on the planet increase their longevity and performance by helping them optimize their minds and bodies.
