How to Get Everything You Want in Life

May 25, 2008

Are you getting everything you want in life?

If you’re not, then raise your standards.

Most gym goers I know probably think they’re trying hard to reach their goals. But, how do you really know?

Are you *really* working hard enough to reach your goal? Do you compare yourself to your friends, co-workers, and/or your peers in/out of the gym?

How do you know if your routine and efforts are truly effective? And is that effort going to take you to your desired goal?

After going to the gym for the first day, or the first week, month, year, or years, you have in your mind an idea of what your standard is. The word standard is defined as “a degree or level of requirement, excellence, or attainment.”

Your standard basically becomes the minimum amount of effort that you’re willing to put forth into your life and your workout each time you get out of bed and each time you enter the gym.

People who’ve earned their wealth and fortunes, and people that worked hard for their bodies have a lot in common.

There’s tons of articles, opinions, and information out there. Very often, it can be difficult for people to separate the useful information from the marketing crap. The reality is, most companies out there don’t want to help you, they want your money.

If you look at your bank statement, you expect to see an exact number, right?

Would you be satisfied if it only gave you a rating; Low, Enough, Good, or Rich?

Would you be satisfied if your bank statement only showed you a checking account
balance but, always kept the savings account balance a secret from you?

Why would you treat your fitness any differently?

If you are working with a good Certified Personal Trainer, one of the very first things they’ll do is take a few basic measurements. You should know these measurements too.

Numbers 1-3 are especially important for a person whose goal is to improve their
appearance; to lose weight, cut-down, tone-up, trim-down, shape-up, -down, -diagonal, or -whatever.

Sucker-Free Personal Training

May 1, 2008

First, let me say this…

I don’t like wasting money and I don’t like being a sucker. Living here in Honolulu costs enough already. I prefer making well informed buying decisions and wise investments that I’ll feel good about in the long run.

Along the way, you might have considered hiring a personal trainer to help you reach your fitness goals.

Almost everyone has been the sucker at some point. I’ll admit it — I’ve been a sucker before too.
