As the owner of Every body’s personal training, and a personal trainer of over 15 years, I have had the privilege of working with, and getting to know, some very successful people. Being inquisitive, I tend to pick their minds and learn through my experiences. So what have I learned in my journey about being successful? What makes people become a success? Let’s take a look.
One important ingredient in all successful people that I have worked with, is a lack of fear in regards to failure. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what endeavor you are trying to pursue, there are going to be bumps in the road. You are going to hit plateaus, and guess what, you are going to fail. The trick is what do you do when you face setbacks? The wise Rocky Balboa once said LOL, “it doesn’t matter how much you can take, what matters is how much you can take and continue to move forward.”
The next tip I have is simply just show up. A lady who I currently train once told me, “Eric I have no idea why people pay me what they pay me, but I just make sure I keep on showing up.” What I took from this is no matter what you do, keep on showing up. You can never become successful if you don’t show up, kind of like the saying you will always miss every shot you don’t take. So bottom line, just keep on showing up.
