Get It Done Everyday

Today is a great day and I give Thanks to God for allowing me to touch someones life today. I do have some complaints about the way in which people complain all day about they don't have enough time for this or that. I sit back and ask myself how do you not have time?

I know we all lead busy lives and things come up that may put a monkey wrench in our schedules, but the bottom line is this, If you want to stay healthy and not be overweight and have lots of energy, feel strong without the aches and pain you must stay fit! That means that you have to get off your lazy ass and do something! I don't care what it is or for how long.

People always talk about what they want and how they want to look and feel, but that is as far as it goes. Let's face it, there is no magic bullet! You have to GET IT DONE EVERYDAY! No matter what. The more that you learn to embrace that attitude the sooner you will be on your way to accomplishing all your dreams.

In the words of DAX MOY "you get paid for done". It can be rephrased to any situation that you might face in life, it you have a deadline, achieving at fitness goal, growing your business, relationship. You get what you put into it.

That's My Word!

P.S. Let's Get It Done Everyday ;0)

"Changing Mindset"

I have been a lot of thinking as I always do, on ways to better myself daily and I am a fitness professional, but I'm not a technician of fitness anymore. What I mean by that is in the past I have just thought of training clients owning a studio and being the technicain of the studio.

I have learned that before any of the things that I want to accomplish ever manifest I must change my mindset! I am no longer a fitness professional that trains clients and owns a job, I am a fitness professional that owns a studio with trainers that teach individuals fitness.

This has been one of my challenges and I'm really starting to catch on, the only reason is because I continue to surround myself with individuals that are where I want to be, I continue to strive for new knowledge on how to improve the business at John Hall Studios. If you ever want to be successful at anything you must be willing to change your mindset as you develop, the more you procrastinate and wait for the perfect opportunity the longer youstand still. You must be willing to invest in your education. You must take Action on what you learn.

I have in the past bought many products and get all fired up only to sit on things. Well things have changed and Wow it's amazing how taking action can change things. If there is any advice I can give is don't wait!

I was watching Zach Even esh the owner of underground strength coach today on a video clip and I truely admire his work ethic, the guy never stops. He has put together a incredible system for his following on a shoe string budget and his business is booming. The reason why is because did not wait for the perfect situation, he used what he had and started working towards what he wanted.

In summary, there is no perfect time or condition, work with what you got and keep your eyes on your vision and never lose focus and surely you will achieve all your dreams.

That's my word!

What's Your Motivation?

I have been asking myself that question a lot lately, and I keep coming up with the same answer: To help others achieve goals that they feel they can never achieve on their own.

I'm a fitness professional, but it really goes much further than taking someone through a workout, anyone can do that. I help people get through the emotional, physical, mental, etc. pains that they encounter. Not only that I have built some of the best relationships with clients that will last a life time.

It is so rewarding to see the transformation of a person with no self esteem, become this confident individual or to see a person say that they can't do something, only to motivate them and show them that can't is not an option and everything is possible. The look on their faces when the achieve what they thought was impossible is priceless!

The sweat,the work, the hurt, the pain, the emotions, the sacrifice, the reward is my motivation! I love what I do and I will to continue to help and show the world the gift that God has bestowed upon me. I left a career in Pharmacy to embark on this journey and I have no regrets.

That's my word!

Action! A word that is truely taken for granted. I was thinking about the bootcamp that I attended this weekend and the resounding message was you must take action. I have had many great ideas and have let them sit on the back burner and that is still where they lie.

I was listening to one speaker at the end of a great weekend of learning and Dax Moy made one comment that will stick with me forever; you only get paid for done, you only get paid for done.

We so often say we are going to do this and that and never do anything and I'm very guilty of that, but no more I'm taking action on every opportunity that comes my way. Some may not work and that is okay but I refuse not to take action anymore! That's my word!

Ryan Lee Bootcamp

This my first post, so forgive me if I ramble. I went to a bootcamp this weekend in Stamford, CT. The bootcamp was all about showing fitness professionals the business side of fitness and how to prosper from it. I hve been to Ryan Lee bootcamps before, but I have to tell you this was the most rewarding and informative event that I have ever been to! I can say that with such conviction because the knowledge I obtained this weekend will help me get more clients and grow my business by leaps and bounds.

I also got to meet the top professionals in the industry, and they were the nicest and layed back people that you want to meet. Very helpful and attentive to my concerns and a wealth of knowledge.

I recommend that any fitness professional that did not attend this bootcamp, that they get the CDs ASAP!
