How to protect yourself in any competitive environment (like life)…

By Marcus Santer

how to survive in a competitive environment

The Saturday Quote:

“Everybody is asking for protection… In a competitive environment the only honest answer for protection is performance”
Carlos Tavares boss of PSA Peugeot Citroen

From 7am to 7pm Clarabella has BBC radio 4 playing in the kitchen.

Even when she’s not in the house.

I know, I know.

And I was in the kitchen a few weeks back making coffee and not listening to the radio.

Whilst my coffee sat brewing I did some shoulder stretches.

And that’s when I heard something that made me prick up my ears.

It was the quote above.

I committed it to memory as best as I could and ran around looking for a pen so I could put it down on paper before I forgot.

Now then…

The quote was from Peugeot boss Carlos Tavares and it’s in reference to them taking over Opel and Vauxhall here in Europe. And concerns that they will shut down plants and people will lose their jobs.

But it got me thinking.

Life is a competitive environment.

Your body is constantly fighting for survival against factors in your environment that want to grind you into dust.

It’s not personal, it’s just life.

And whilst life wants to live, all life wants to live.

I can’t think of a more competitive environment than life.

And Carlos’s response to how the various car plants in Europe can survive is through performance.

He went on to say: “… if you increase your level of performance, you become the best, if you become the best there is no risk.”

Well, I believe in life there is always risk, but by increasing your performance you can certainly minimise it.

And how do you increase your performance?

By adopting the 7 health packed habits I share in my Healthy Ageing Pyramid (HAP) book.

These habits are evidence based and proven to help you increase your performance as a human competing to survive in this world.

As Walter Bortz M.D. speaks about in it’s Foreword, to reach our full potential you need two things, guts and smarts.

And he writes:

“You have to be strong to grow old.”

You have to increase your performance if you want your whole tale to be told to the world.

As good as the HAP book is, it does have one weakness.

It’s in Habit #5: Move More and Build Strength.

In that chapter I told you exactly WHAT you need to do to build a physically strong body.


I didn’t have the space to tell you exactly HOW to do it.

Starting in Aprils issue of the ZEN+ Journal I’m going to do just that.

I’m going to share with you my brand new Build These Stretch These system.

It will show you how to build the muscles that weaken with age and stretch the muscles that get tighter as you age.

My objective is to make it the only exercise program you’ll ever need for the rest of your life.

There’ll be videos, pictures and all the instructions necessary to make it as simple for you to get to grips with as possible. And I’m going to organise it in such a way that you can use it whether you haven’t done any regular exercise since you left school, or you work out three times a week or you’re somewhere in-between the two.

It all starts in the 4th Birthday Bumper edition of next month’s ZEN+ Journal. Which makes it the perfect place for you to climb aboard.

But you’ll need to be a Journal subscriber in order to get your hands on this system.

I guarantee that if you apply it, it will increase your physical performance and if you combine it with the 7 health packed habits of the HAP it will help to secure your continued protection in the competition called life.

Go here to join us now.

Bye for now


P.S. The worst thing that can happen if you test drive the Journal for two months is you get £120 of valuable material, absolutely free.
