This March, Men's Health magazine gets thelow-down on Alfred Vargas and his tried-and-tested tips on how to enjoy,excel, and outwork the competition—including himself.
Even after having hisfair share of success, as proven by the growing list of his awards andaccomplishments, Alfred reminds himself to be always on top of his game. "Thetrophies are reminders of what I can do and what I'm capable of doing," he explains,adding, "but I know there's still a lot of work to be done."
Alfred goes back to the time when he did hisgroundbreaking performance in BridalShower as a macho dancer. A lot of guys could have easily turned down therole immediately, but Alfred stuck to it and, in fact, did extensive character research. His hard work eventually paid off, earning him an Urian award in the process. From this experience, Alfred haslearned to focus his efforts on things he can control, instead of worryingabout things that are beyond his grasp.
While Alfred enjoys every moment of achievement, he does not discount the the possibility of failure.
"In the definition of success, there'salways failure. That success is the ability to turn failure upside down..." hemuses.
And despite the countless hours he spends on work, given his numerous showbizbreaks, Alfred remembers to keep his health top priority. "If I'm healthy, Ifeel good," Alfred says. He does so by sticking to a three-day workout to keephis body fit. As for his diet, he discourages the strict ones, especially thosethat include no-carbs. "Why go on a diet if you'll only feel bad about it?"
