Often times when you buy products online (and this holds true especially for information products) you’re not entirely sure as to whether the person is actually “doing” what they’re saying, are you?
You’re not entirely sure if the life coach you’re considering buying a book from has truly “been in the trenches” – or if he just got lucky and one of his books was picked up and got famous, and . . .
And so forth.
Now yes, we all make our own luck but this is not about that. There are many variables that contribute to ultimate and true success, and to me, one of the main things to consider is has the person been beaten down REPEATEDLY – only for it to have no impact, and the person stands back up and KEEPS on KEEPING ON?
I know of very few such cases, my friend, and the ones I DO KNOW of are the ones that ultimately succeeded – and in a lasting manner, and how.
I do not know a single successful person, for instance, who was the first to line up at the government office for their stimulus checks – all the while complaining about Donald Trump and how he’s hurting the nation, and other associated nonsense (while sucking off the very teat that he is providing).
No this isn’t about politics, but I’ve found that a vast majority of the people that “give advice” do anyting but follow their own advice – themselves, and this is TRUE my friend for people across all spheres of life, not just fitness or “life coaching”.
Well, yours truly has certainy been in the trenches and then some, and if you’ve been following my writings, you KNOW what I’m talking about!
This morning I woke up feeling great, but as I proceeded with my work, something strange happened.
The “great” feeling disappeared.
Well, it didn’t disappear so much as fade away, as I read some news (something I usually never do unless I’m bored) and I was left with a “deflated” feeling.
There have been some things going on in my life right now from a personal standpoint too that are taking “somewhat” of a toll, and yet, when I looked at myself in the mirror and said what Claude Bristol said so many years ago, I told myself I will GET THROUGH THIS.
I’ll get through what is making me “irritated” (I suppose that is the right term) at this minute, and it will PASS.
I pictured past successes.
I pictured myself climbing my favorite HILL, and doing the things I LOVE in life.
And very soon, the “descending black cloud of doom and gloom” was replaced by a neutral cloud.
I paced around the room some.
Did some pep talking.
And then . . . . dropped down, and banged out a 100 Hindu squats, making sure to focus on the DEEP BREATHING aspect of it.
And now as I sit here a good 20 minutes or so later, I’m still dripping with sweat, and I’m ready to GET HER DONE!
And that’s how it should be for you too my friend.
Visualization plus physical exercise makes an UNBEATABLE combo – and that’s what today’s missive is about!
P.S. – And when you’re looking for fakes, look past the mere WORDS of what theyre saying. As I keep telling my coaching group, mere words are one thing, but the FEELING behind the words can never ever be hidden my friend. And it’s true.
