I think the ambiguity of the question is its beauty. It could mean so many things.
It could pertain to stamina, or height, or your powers of concentration. I am going to look at life however, and how to improve your chances of a longer one.

Extending our life has always been the Holy Grail of medicine. Longevity is an empty prize without good health and contentment to enjoy these extra years of life.

Why do some people cruise past the age of 100 while others struggle to embrace their Biblically-allotted three-score years and ten?
Centenarians have an unusually lucky combination of genes that mean they stay healthier, for longer, as they age. They are often more resistant to the degenerative changes that contribute to ageing, and are less likely to be significantly overweight, to smoke, or to drink alcohol in excess. The combination of healthy genes and healthy lifestyle mean their extended years are spent living independently, with an agile body and mind.
