Olympic gold medalist Joseph Schooling talks with Fuel My Potential about how good nutrition advice helped him win the 100m butterfly event at the Rio Olympic Games. And how it can help you find success …
Each of us have our own goals, our own passions and our own unique talents. To achieve what we want in life we need to understand ourselves and to nurture ourselves first and foremost. Nutrition is an area of growing popularity, but it is often dominated by rules; “do as I do, don’t eat this, you must eat that” etc.
I know from personal experience that eating well is energizing. It is the best way to care for you, yourself. It is a simple first step to be the best version of yourself you can be. Yet everyone’s journey to their own goal is unique. We all have our own path in life. How can you chart your own journey if you are following somebody else’s rules? You need to know what works for you, not what works for someone else.
