In your personal life, you only like to surround yourself with people who improve the quality of your life. You look for partners who offer you those charismatic qualities, the ones that make them attractive to you. You would never settle for second best…
In your professional life, you only like to associate with colleagues who can influence your business for the better. No matter what you do for a living, you draw inspiration from those who have succeeded, and steer away from the ones who have fallen. In your professional life, you would never settle for second best…
In your training life, you tolerate the gym you train at with all it’s broken equipment, train with your mate who never shows up, or when he does spends more time socialising then training. In your training life, you achieve marginal results, because after all, second best is good enough, right? WRONG!
Call me cynical, but 9 times out of 10 it’s the truth. Ask any trainer are they happy with their results and most will give you back a big fat “Hell No”. Ask them why, and the excuses start to fly: “This gym sucks, my training partner sucks, the other gym goers suck”. Excuses, excuses! I think it’s about time you got on track with the winners!
If in your professional and personal lives your will not tolerate anything but the best, why settle for anything less when it comes to your own gym work. Personally, I cannot figure it out.
Your gym work is something you solely do for yourself, no one else. Don’t you deserve the best? Don’t you deserve results? Or are you destined to spit excuses for the rest of your life? Do what I do and get on the right track with this one simple strategy:
Surround yourself with winners
If your gym doesn’t motivate you any more – move! If your training harder is holding you back – change partners!
If you want to step into the winners circle, you need to play with the winners. The people you wish to be like didn’t get there by accident either. When they were in your situation, they emulated the winners in front of them.
You see, it’s kind of like a circle of evolution. To be whom you want to be tomorrow, you need to jump on board now, otherwise you will never get there.
