The author emphasizes the importance of body leadership. According to him, one should lead one's body and not the other way around by engaging in the disciplined and regular exercise of the body, which involves healthy sleep patterns, fitness routines and daily work focused on putting first things first. He suggests that this discipline will prevent appetites and passions from becoming more like cravings, addictions, over-indulgences and chemical dependencies.
