Sheikh Mohammed says physical fitness will increase work productivity
Sheikh Mohammed noted that a physically fit person is useful to his society
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, stressed the need of being active and energetic and this should be the lifestyle.
Sheikh Mohammed stressed that he wants the people of the Emirates to have a high physical fitness, because it is strongly linked to work productivity and because the lazy person will not produce anything.
Sheikh Mohammed noted that a physically fit person is useful to his society, while the inactive person will normally get out of the race of excellence after his inactivity turns into laziness, and then, he becomes miserable.
Sheikh Mohammed added, "I want my people to have a high physical fitness, the elderly and the young alike. If you are physically good, you will be useful... Now you must be the best, do not sit idle, otherwise you will be out of the race and you will be miserable. The lazy can not produce anything."
Sheikh Mohammed mentioned in a video clip he posted on Instagram within the tag #LeadershipFlashes, stressing that history teaches us that the rise of civilizations and the prosperity of nations and peoples are linked to knowledge.
Sheikh Mohammed also noted in the video clip in which he spoke about the importance of reading and the thirst for learning, stressing that the day that he passes by without learning something, is considered a missing day of his life.
Sheikh Mohammed launched the hashtag # Leadership Flashes, on his Instagram account, last month, to share part of his life and experiences with his followers.
Mohammed published the first video with the tag, in which he spoke about how his dreams started when he was young, to achieve leadership for the Emirates and the happiness of its people, stressing that he had great dreams.
