What makes someone successful in their field of choice? In the business world we often hear things like, “she’s naturally really good with people”. In sports, we hear it all the time, “She’s got great genes, she’s a freak.” In academia, its often “She’s really smart.” While there is probably a nugget of truth in each of these, research done by psychologist Angela Duckworth has shown that IQ, genetics, and social intelligence are not in fact the greatest determinants of success.

Our bodies total weight is up to 60 percent water, meaning if you weigh 100kg, 60kg of that weight is simply water. With this in mind, we will talk about the importance of water in relation to exercise, but remember that water is essential for our daily functioning (mental focus and clarity), all the way down to our bodies daily functioning at the cellular level. Hydration is so important that a water loss of 1-2% of our bodyweight (which is roughly the amount at which thirst is perceived), athletic performance will suffer
It is no secret that goal setting is a great way to improve oneself in any aspect of life. To ensure that we are goal setting effectively, it is important to consider what kind of goals we set.
