Mickey Mantle

"If I knew I would live this long, I would have taken better care of myself."

--Mickey Mantle

As a great baseball player as Mickey Mantle was, he could not reach his full potential because of injuries. He did not train in the off-season; he did not cut down on late-night parties during the regular season. All the men in his family had died young, and knowing that, he was somewhat fatalistic about his own health.

But genetic history is not predestination. I have seen people offset bad genes with healthy lifestyles. And I have seen people offset good genes with poor lifestyle choices. You can not do much about your genetic makeup, but you can do a lot about the way you live. Just think what Mickey could have accomplished if he had understood that.
