Are You Ready?

What is it that separates you from your aspirations? Or from being at the very top of your game?
If you want to be a top salesman – what is it that is keeping you from accomplishing your goal?
Is it education? 
If so – what books do you need to read? 
 Who do you need to meet or consult with?
 What audio CD’s do you need to listen to? 
What seminars do you need to attend?
Is it experience? If so – who can you study under to fast track that experience?
 How many clients would you need to get in front of to get more experience? If you currently call 20 clients per week, if you got up to 25, that would be an extra 250 appointments per year (or over twelve extra weeks of experience each year compared to now).
What about a personal goal of fat loss or muscle gain? What if you want to lose 20lbs?
What foods would you have to eat on a daily basis? What training would you have to do? How much cardiovascular work? How many sets, reps, exercises in your weight training program? Should you even have a weight training program?
What is the best club in your area? Who seems to be getting ALL the results? What time commitment realistic for you?
Are you just lacking the information? Are you lacking a plan? Do you know what to do and just aren’t doing it? Are you supposed to take a 6am class or sleep in instead? Are you just not taking action?
I bet some of you have never even figured out these factors. Some people prefer to stay the same, yet complain about where they are, and how hard it is, and how it’s “different” for them.
As we wind up 2011, are you where you wanted to be 12 months ago? What about 12 months from now? What steps do you need to take?
If it’s a lack of information – then get that information and then take action.
 If it’s a lack of action – then get moving and DO something.
We’re here to help, but we can’t want it more than you! Write down your goals and let’s set up your action plan, TOGETHER!
