Billionaire Entrepreneur Offers Advice for Becoming the Person You Want to Be, at Any Age

Tips for Advancing in Health, Wealth, Self

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - May 27, 2016) - At age 74, Robert B. Pamplin Jr., America's foremost diversified entrepreneur and a model for whole-body health and fitness, aims to continually live his life to the fullest and focuses on health, wealth and self-improvement to do so. With these priorities in mind, he seeks to inspire individuals of any age to actively pursue and achieve their goals for a better lifestyle and happier outlook.

"Our happiness and achievements are affected by all aspects of our lives including our daily routines, family and personal connections, and our workplace environment and behaviors," said Pamplin. "It is imperative to foster and maintain habits that continuously contribute to achieving who we want to be."

Pamplin provides tips and insights for achieving one's goals in health, wealth and self -- three areas that are often the focus for overall happiness and success.

Health
Staying healthy and focusing on one's well-being is central to promoting a happy, successful lifestyle. Don't let age and old habits get in the way of trying something new.

  • Stay determined and get inspired: You must want to improve yourself to become a stronger and healthier person. Take that desire and make it a lifestyle by finding an exercise, a class or simply a daily walking routine that suits you.
  • Do your research: A rigorous diet or intense workout doesn't work for everyone. Do your research and identify what would make you personally happy and, best of all, healthier.
  • Think twice: If you have the option to walk instead of drive or eat healthier instead of the same old fatty foods, consciously consider those alternatives. These small changes can add up to big results in the long run and may ultimately become personal habits.

Wealth
It is never too late to implement a new vision for your wealth.

  • Use your imagination: The key to success at any age is having an idea and developing a strategy to make that idea a reality. Find new ways to expand your wealth and hone in on new skills.
  • Analyze risk vs. reward: There is truth to the old saying "the greater the risk, the greater the reward," and it is important to analyze the appropriate balance between risk and reward when it comes to wealth and advancement.
  • Manage a positive approach to your money and goals: Outline your visions and plan with purpose. In understanding the things that you actively want, make these a priority and benchmark of success.

Self-improvement
As we get older, it may seem far from mind to focus on self-improvement. However, there is always time to continue learning and growing.

  • Expand your learning and challenge yourself: Continuing to advance your learning and broaden your skill set is critical to achieving your goals. Learning can come from a variety of platforms, including educational programs and hands-on experience.
  • Keep your options open and remember every question has an answer: Don't close any door because of pride and take the word "impossible" out of your vocabulary. You can achieve whatever it is you set your mind to.
  • Share your rewards: Take pride in your accomplishments, but share with those who have helped you. It will return to you tenfold.

Pamplin lives by the mantra "use every moment of your life" and encourages everyone to harness that sentiment and welcome new goals and opportunities in their daily lives. No matter your age, focusing on health, wealth and self-improvement can fulfill long-term goals and yield great rewards. To learn more about Pamplin and his journey, visit why-i.org.
