Invest in your Health and Gain a Great Return on Investment (ROI) – Let Grenga Health Make It Happen
When you invest time and/or money you want a Return on Investment (ROI). It should be a clearly defined outcome and based on the time you are spending and the money you are investing. It should follow a set of guidelines and be clearly stated so you know exactly what you will receive.
Here at Grenga Health, we firmly believe in this principle and making sure all those who work with us get a great ROI. But it’s so important to understand your own unique needs and challenges.
So what’s your ROI that you are hoping to achieve with Grenga Health? Let’s break it down.
First, be precise in what you are looking for. Ask yourself what you want out of the relationship. Do you want?
- Weight loss
- More energy
- Improved digestion
- Better health
- Putting God at the center of your health journey, or
- Steps to achieve all of the above
Now let’s look at what YOU must first INVEST in order to move towards those goals. What does that look like?
- Have you set your goals and adjusted your priorities in order to achieve them?
- Is your mindset positive and are you willing to listen and follow advice?
- Do you have an accountability partner or a group to help you along this journey? (If not, please join our private group on Facebook – Where Food & Faith Meet)
- Are you willing to try something new? Are you ready to step outside of your comfort zone?
- Do you have an understanding that God gives us power, love, and self-discipline? (2 Timothy1:7)
- Will you take the steps necessary to achieve your goals and not give up? (Fight or flight?)
We have found slow and steady wins the race. And, in all we do, we practice that.
It’s also important to know what your goals are worth to you. No investment, no return, right? As mentioned on the Restored Church of God’s website, “One of the richest men alive today, Warren Buffet, earned the nickname “legendary investor” for making most of his money through investments in the stock market. For him, the ability to invest in the right places paid huge dividends. But is this the only form of investment? It continues, “While God promises to protect us from diseases, it comes with a condition: He expects us to do our part. We must be wise stewards of the body God has given us. Each day should be spent ensuring that we maintain and improve our health to prevent sickness. As the old adage goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Prevention will pay dividends, while procrastination will make one poor.” (https://rcg.org/pillar/1201pp-iigh.html)
What does it cost? Think about how much it would cost when you lose your health or you’re spending more time and money on doctor visits because you didn’t make your health a priority. These costs can be insurmountable and you can literally spend your entire paycheck on medical care. Why not begin spending some of it on making a change in lifestyle, investing in better foods, investing in a program or person to help you gain your health? Part of the ROI is finding areas to spend less, but get more.
Are your goals worth money, time and energy? Is your health worth that to you? Is your family’s health worth that to you?
The bottom line is that the best investment you could make is in your health because what truly happens when we don’t have our health any longer? No money in the world will make you feel better if you’re not well enough or around to enjoy it.
That is why we invest in programs and people like health coaches, life coaches and fitness trainers. We want to gain a return. We might use a financial planner to help us achieve a financial goal. Sometimes their fees are part of our invested funds. But we to have to make the effort…set aside funds and budget our spending in order to achieve these goals. Some of the results are up to us and directly related to our effort and commitment. Taking baby steps is good because taking the steps is what matters. Consistency and learning to build on small victories are the keys to success.
It’s up to you, day one or one day.
Our health goals require a similar commitment. Some of our goals and the ROI are up to us. We need to invest the time or results don’t happen. We need to understand our goals and follow the steps to get there. If you don’t invest, listen and follow the steps, you don’t get your ROI.
Most often if we don’t have “skin in the game” or a personal investment, there is no value to us and it’s too easy for us to walk away. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Or, if you look at it this way, no loss would be suffered if we put nothing into it and walk away.
That’s why I’ll ask for you to invest in your health as well. Sometimes it might mean financially, but ALWAYS it will mean with your time, commitment, and energy.
You must be committed and have consistency in order to win the race. Remember, the race is a marathon, not a sprint. Life-changing habits take an investment and the benefit you gain is your ROI.
The same holds true when it comes to our Faith – God tells us that you can have this, it’s free. I have sacrificed My Only Son so that you may live in eternity, but you have to have some “skin in the game” for your own ROI. You have to believe and ask Jesus for forgiveness of sins. You have to be committed. In fact, it’s not just a belief, it’s a relationship. It’s an investment. Your ROI is eternity in Heaven and Jesus already did most of the work by sacrificing himself so that you may live in eternity.
