Back in the day, when I was struggling to grow my personal training business at LA Fitness, I took forever to do anything…
Even on the advice from my first mentor, Jim Franco.
I literally had two jobs and was trying to launch my fitness business – all without success.
Only when I look back do I realize how S-L-O-W I moved with my decisions and actions.
The opportunities that I saw pass me by, or slipped through my fingertips were happening because I was being slow to take action.
Here’s why that happens to newer business owners… FEAR.
Fear of failure.
Fear of looking stupid if it doesn’t work out.
Fear of going broke.
Fear of success (that’s a real one).
What most people will never tell you about success is that success loves speed.
It’s like a universal law or something…
Money and success are attracted to speed and decisiveness.
If you want to be successful, you must be fast.
Speed is key.
9 out of 10 times when an entrepreneur asks me why they’re not where they want to be, it’s because they’re slow in making decisions and execution… because they’re afraid.
I get it.
I used to be the same way.
Here’s a tip that helped me put a fire under my ass…
You’re going to want to write this down or frame it somewhere.
People are needlessly suffering because they’re slow to take action.
That doesn’t just apply to business either.
It applies to your fitness, your relationship and in your work.
You know what moves you need to make… but you’re too slow in making the moves because of fear.
Is this registering? Are you getting it?
