“Things may come to those who wait…but only the things left by those who hustle.”
– Abraham Lincoln
When it comes to Personal Trainer motivation – you have to learn to hustle.
What does that mean…?
It means, if there is something you believe you need to do…, JUST DO IT!
The biggest killer to your success is anticipation. Having to analyse if the ‘time is right’ or ‘what would that person think of me?’ or whatever you got going on in your mind is actually slowing you down.
How many times did you find yourself in a situation where you wanted to do something you really – really wanted…but didn’t?
I bet you found all the excuses in the world why it ‘wasn’t the right time’ or ‘I’m not good enough’ or ‘I need more knowledge/training’, etc…
As a Personal Trainer, too much analysing on why you shouldn’t approach people, call people or ask for the sale is, in my opinion, the biggest killer of PT’s.
But, have you noticed those PT’s who just jump in whenever they see an opportunity…? I know, I know…they are rare. But, what’s the result…?
They end up with more clients. More money. And are not afraid to take on new challengers. In the end, they are the most successful!
Yes. They have lots of set-backs. Lots of failures. But, guess what…? They also have the most success!
Sure, they get rejected. But they simply don’t care! They have built such a big thick mental shield around them… rejection just bounces off!
You can do the same. It takes seconds to build a mental shield. Remember, it’s in the power of your mind. And your mind is made up of thoughts. Thoughts take only seconds to create….
Go! Approach people. Call people. Ask for the sale. Let all rejections bounce off…and… allow inside those who are worthy of your time.
The founder of IBM, Thomas J Watson once said…
“If you want to succeed, double your failure rate.”
Go out there and fail! And watch yourself succeed beyond limits!
And, in the words of Abraham Lincoln… Be the person who hustles. The person who moves and acts energetically and rapidly. The ‘go getter’. And let the others collect what they’ve been ‘waiting’ for!
