This is the number one drug for entrepreneurs, and if it’s not, it should be.
Actually, It should be the number one drug for any human being, because it’ll drastically change and improve your performance in whatever you’re doing. It’s probably not what a lot of you guys are thinking either..
You may be thinking, “Oh, it’s a Nootropic, or a brain enhancement drug”, but it’s not. It’s honestly really simple.
It’s Oxygen! Yes, Oxygen. Air is the number one drug for every living thing on this earth. As an entrepreneur, whatever you’re working on requires a lot of mental energy and brainpower.
One of the things that your brain and entire body thrives on is oxygen and truthfully, so many people go throughout their entire day without getting enough of it. One way to correct this is by practicing deep breathing exercises. This will totally change the way that you think, and it’ll also allow you to think faster and have better, more positive thoughts.
Personally, I’m not much of a morning person. It’s actually really hard for me to get out of bed some mornings because I just wanna lay there and roll around in bed.
So, one of things that helps me get up and going is sitting up in my bed and doing deep, diaphragmatic breaths to start getting oxygen throughout my body, and throughout my mind. This is something that I continue to do several times throughout the day.
There’s a couple exercises in particular that I do. One of them is a breathing exercise called the Wim Hof breathing exercise. The first time I did that, I was able to hold my breath for two minutes and 45 seconds afterwards, which is way longer than any other time I’ve tried to hold my breath.
What I’ve come to learn is most people have shallow breathing, where they’re barely breathing throughout the day, leading to a lack of oxygen to their brain.
So, I think that the number one drug for entrepreneurs, or for anybody that wants to perform at a high level, is oxygen.
Think about it. It’s not some sort of food or even water. You can live weeks without food and you can go several days without water, but how long can you go without oxygen? You can’t really go that long.
So, if you’re able to flood your body and brain with oxygen, it makes a whole lot of difference while performing.
