Big dreams happen in empty gyms, they happen in early mornings and late nights when NOBODY is watching, they did for me when I first took over the gym.
It’s pretty lonely when there’s not many people coming in, and you’re not exactly flavour of the month. My father was suffering from dementia and declining fast and I was left to pick up some pieces, to change people’s minds and get the gym going properly again.
It’s hard to think positive when you’re not bringing in hardly any money, and nobody much has heard of the gym, and those who have have a set opinion of it that was hard to shake. Developing tough skin was something I had to learn all over again.
That was 9 years ago and it’s well-documented how far we have come since then, it frequently blows my mind. It didn’t matter how many years I did personal training with a flat out schedule 7 days a week before that or how well that was going. It would have been MUCH easier to stick in that world, but I knew there was deep work to do that could impact a much wider range of people. My calling was waiting, I knew it.
This was another project, bigger than I thought it would ever be, but the more I got into it, the more potential again I saw.
Burry Port is the ultimate “tell you like it is” type of place! You won’t fool anyone in burry port, this is no place for “cowboys”, and that’s what we love about it.
To change things in your life, you need sacrifice, self-honesty of your situation, be prepared to get stuck in, and be prepared to do all the “little stuff” that makes a big difference over time to people’s lives. The little stuff is what provides the real magic for people, care for everyone at the gym and they reward you with incredible progress.
To start something great in your life you need to do the right things with no fanfare and don’t expect much feedback to start with.
If you really want something bad enough, you won’t have any problem getting up at 5am every morning to do unseen work that nobody sees, and do it until it works, not a few mornings, YEARS of mornings until you do it naturally.
You won’t have any issue with putting unseen work in on your body to make sure you have huge unstoppable energy levels that can make you achieve any project/dream in your life.
You are either a “sticker” or a “potcher”. Stick with your training, stick with eating right and stick hanging out with the right positive people in your life.
Up to you how much magic you want to create in your life. Life is waiting for you to shake it up and make way for your very own huge impact.
