On Fast Food, Sales Training & Getting The Winning Edge

About 6 months ago I went to put on a suit that I hadn’t worn for a while and it was pretty tight, I can tell you! The sad fact hit me that over the months and years I’d put a bit of extra weight on. I realised that I had fallen into a pattern of eating and exercising that was not supporting me in achieving my health and fitness goals. And like most people I had some good excuses… “It’s hard to get a healthy meal when you’re stuck at an airport late at night”, “Everyone puts on a little weight as they get older”, “I don’t have the time to exercise.” But these are just that, excuses. So I made a decision…

A decision to do something about it, a decision to eat a little less, a decision to avoid fatty foods when away from home, a decision to change my exercise regime. A decision to change things for the better. And, as a result, I lost weight.

Many people ask me how I lost that weight. Many people tell me that they’d like to lose weight. Many people tell me that they had been trying to lose weight for ages. And many people talk about losing weight and getting fitter as if it is the hardest thing in the world to do. But, in reality, all it requires is…

An awareness that you need to do something + a desire and a decision to do something + consistent action (in this case… eat less, exercise more).

In other words, not rocket science.

As an author and speaker, I meet a lot of sales and business people who are not achieving what they want in their lives. They are settling for okay when they could be doing OKAY! They are accepting that their businesses or their sales approaches are a little flabby yet they are either not aware of this or are not prepared to make the decision and take the action necessary to change it.

Whatever you are doing right now, just stop for a minute and think about these serious questions…

Where are you accepting results in your life that are less than what you want and deserve? When will it be time for you to make a decision to do things differently? What one area of your business or your life could you take action on today that would make a radical difference for you? Why not share your thoughts below?
