Your “Economy” as a Trainer or Coach
This could be one of the most important messages we’ve ever sent you.
Since early 2020, the world has done a flip, to put it mildly. Sometimes, where there are many significant changes, it takes some adjustments.
THIS IS WHAT MATTERS MOST RIGHT NOW:
You have a lot of control over your thoughts, emotions, motivation and income. Yes, you can even control your own economy, which lets you bypass some of the badness you may be witnessing around you.
Only those who are truly serious about taking total control of their education, career, business and personal finances will read this completely and then TAKE ACTION.
Is this you?
Here we go…..
We (our leadership team) have worked with the top minds in fitness, coaching, economics, personal development, technology and psychology for decades.
THIS IS WHAT WE’VE FOUND TO BE MOST IMPORTANT AND CONTINUALLY RELEVANT (ESPECIALLY TODAY):
1. Investing in your education is most important. This is not limited to certifications (although very important). You must also continually educate yourself on finance, tax planning, real estate, sales, speaking skills, personal development, and long-term strategic life planning.
2. Create multiple streams of . The average millionaire has 7 streams of revenue. How many do you have? As an example, you could offer fitness training, coaching/mentoring, monetize your YouTube channel, write articles on areas of your expertise or do offer products through a nutrition company. That’s 4 right there. You are on your way. Each revenue stream can be complementary to the others, or in a completely different niche/industry. It’s your choice.
3. Focus on what you can control. Can you control COVID? Not really. Can you control who’s the next President? Not a lot. You only account for about 0.0000000001%. So…… NO, not really. No matter who is President, what’s happening with COVID, and the cost of gas, you need to provide for your family, custom design your life and thrive every day. So, focus on ONLY what you can control. You can control your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, emotions, actions and the energy you give to your goals.
WHEN OTHER PEOPLE MAY RETRACT, YOU DRIVE FORWARD.
For every second your competition focuses on the BS and nonsense in the news, they fall behind you in every way. When people worry about the 99% of things that cannot be controlled, they fall behind. And, they put themselves in a stress state, which reduces their ability to fully use their prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for high-level critical thinking. Yes, that also puts them further behind.
You should have all types of friends because you can always learn something. HOWEVER, the majority of your time needs to be with very smart, well-educated (informal education is good, too), and helpful people. Being around scarcity-minded, negative and worrisome people is a drag. Okay, it just stinks. Don’t do that.
