On the two separate times I was employed by Goodlife Fitness I truly bought into the belief system that they were trying to sell me on. Problem was that what they preached to the members was not the same as what they preached to the employees of the club.
I could have recited “Living The Good Life” and written a shining book review about it. The problem is/was that I didn’t see the company employing those tactics with the staff. Hence why i am out on my own, working on my own.
Patch (David “Patch”ell Evans, Owner of Goodlife Fitness Clubs) says that good is good enough. Be the best you can be. Thee are great one liners that I stress to all of my clients. But these one liners hold a lot of power. If you are truly being good, in every sense of the word, I am sure you will be happy. If you being the best you can be, you will be happy. You will note I did not say TRYING to be the best you can be.
Luke: I’m trying!
Yoda: There is no try! Only do or do not!
So next time you are set on achieving a goal the key is DO not DO NOT! Put down the muffin and pick up an apple. Stop walking and start running. Get from in front of the t.v. and read a book. You would be amazed at how much you can achieve in a short amount of time if you put your mind to it.
