It's amazing how many people can be ignorant to the universal fact that you get what you pay for. You want superb advice, you pay more for that than average advice. You want a sweet ride that has all the fixings and does 0-60 in under 4 seconds, you pay more for that ride. You want the best oil change with the best service and best oil, you pay more for that service. You want the best nutritional products and training results in your program, you pay more for that service. To not think this is a universal concept is naive, and you are simply picking and choosing what you want to believe based upon your priorities.
Let's expound on this point from a different angle. Let's say you don't spend money on your health, fitness, and wellness. Let's say you simply choose to neglect your health. Isn't safe to assume on a very basic level that you will live a shorter life on this planet and you'll also pay more for health-related issues? (I don't want to hear any of that "my uncle smoked cigarettes and drank JD and lived until he was 90" stories). Even if you have that personal philosophy, you are still going to spend a heck of lot more money on your marlboros, fast food, and JD than the healthy person spends on his gym membership, protein shakes, and vitamins.
I've said this before, and I'll say it again, the average american spends between $8-$12 per day on unhealthy convenience in the form of fast food, soda, vending machine food, etc...That's nearly a total of $4,400 per year on stuff that has no value to you. One can easily re-allocate those funds and save money by investing that money into you! Plus, you'll earn yourself a 9% pay raise on top of that. how bout that for an economics lesson! Inflation goes up 4%, you get your standard 3% raise, which means you get 1% poorer every year, but you get healthy and workout and get a 9% raise. I'm running for president in 2016......there's a movement comin' ;)
P.s: I'm not really runnin' for president.....
