Make a Decision #ThatsWhatVeeSaid

You have a choice to make.

It’s not an easy decision.

Each side has its own set of “good’s” and “bad’s.”

So you wait.

Sleep on it.

Think. 

Question yourself.

For days. Weeks. Months. Years?

Because it’s easier to say you’re “thinking about it” rather than take action and do it. You can’t fail if you never try. You can’t fall thinking about taking the step.

So you think about it more. And find comfort in saying, “I have more time. I’ll figure it out later.”

Well, let me assure you, you don’t have more time. And if you don’t decide now, you surely won’t figure it out later.

Make a decision.

Now.

Adjust later.

Are You Scared? #ThatsWhatVeeSaid

I am.

Every day.

Putting others’ health in my hands. Publishing content for however many to critique. Building a business. Creating a life of which my family and I can be proud.

I’m scared shitless every day.

But that’s a good thing, I think. Because it means I care.

It means I care about the people I work with and I will always give them my best. 100%. No matter what.

It means I will never put out content I don’t believe in – everything I publish will be for the sole purpose of helping people achieve their goals safely.

And it means I will wake up early, go to bed late, and do whatever I have to do to build a successful, reputable business with integrity.

Are you scared?

I hope so.

Because if you aren’t doing something that scares you every day, you aren’t getting better.

Hate All You Want #ThatsWhatVeeSaid

You can hate social media.

You can hate online coaching.

You can hate scammy marketers.

You can hate bad coaches.

You can hate all you want.

But hating doesn’t change anything. It doesn’t make a difference. It doesn’t help anyone. And don’t try to convince yourself it does.

It doesn’t.

The way to make a positive change — the only way — is to take action. Make your own content. Give people clear, practical, helpful advice.

So before you dive into your next Facebook rant hating on Food Babe or CrossFit or sit-ups, it might be worth considering how to add to the conversation instead of hating on it.

Take the Fall #ThatsWhatVeeSaid

It’s easy to blame others.

Especially when — in all likelihood — it was their fault.

But here’s the thing.

Nothing positive has ever come from blaming someone else. 

The person blamed gets pissed (even if they know you’re right). You look like a child, not a leader, to onlookers. And you might feel good proving it wasn’t your mistake, but the negative repercussions swiftly overshadow your “win.”

So, listen.

Take the blame.

Own it.

Let it lie with you.

Because, yes, it will build better relationships. But it’s also easier to clean up your own mess. So take the blame — put it all on you — and you’ll find it’s much faster to “clean up” than blaming it on anyone else.

Be a Copy Cat (Seriously) #ThatsWhatVeeSaid

Gary always says his goal is for his viewers to stop watching his content; to reach a point where they no longer need it, stop watching it, and start applying it. 

Because producing — not consuming — is what’s going to help you succeed. And if you succeed, he succeeds.

To do that, he tells everyone to copy him.

Literally.

He tells people to study when he’s posting. What he’s posting. How often. Where. How. Why.

And copy it.

Not verbatim, obviously. Use your own content, ideas and opinions.

But study the strategies he uses and put them into practice with your own beliefs, systems, and methodologies.

Because Gary isn’t trying to teach you how to do your job. What he is trying to teach you, though, is how to capture and use attention. Because if you can get (and keep) large scale attention…your chances of winning increase tenfold.

PS Gary has a camera guy — we call him, “DRock” — follow him around nearly every day. So I nicked the idea (on a smaller scale) and just hired my own camera guy to film me 1 day each week for the next year.

No saying if (or how) this will positively influence my business. But there’s only one way to find out — and I figure if I’m going to copy anyone it sure as shit better be Gary.
