The “old you” is not possible, because life will change you.

Lots of you have stared down huge difficulties in your life in the past, and maybe now too. You needed people to believe in you at your lowest point, and thats what you have with us at the gym, we believe in you and we believe you can overcome anything.

There were times of darkness, but now you have smashed through those dark times and brought fresh new light into your life, encouraging you to take MORE action and developing more self-esteem, to get back to where you think your former self was.

The reality is though we can never get back to our former self, because experiences change us so much that we HAVE to become new people developing new skills and new levels of resilience, often becoming better versions of the way we used to be.

Life will often attack us from all angles, and it’s how we respond to adversity that ultimately makes the big difference, and results in us being changed as individuals forever.

You do have chances to succeed, no matter your challenge no matter how overwhelming your difficulty.

Stay in the game, keep fighting.

Wade through the thick mud and find your way forward. You WILL finally see light and you CAN get there.

We all get huge challenges, testing times that seem that they go on forever, but those times will eventually break, and when they do, we realise that sticking it out made us stronger after all.

Embrace the new person you have become through the strength you now have, and how that new person thinks better, bigger and lives a higher quality of life.

Your duty is to create something memorable with your new found energy through exercise, and you have a great opportunity to do so. Many of you do already achieving great things, but many of you are holding yourselves back without even realising it.

I get to work with inspired, energetic individuals every single day (i love all of your efforts at the gym, all of you at a different stage) and I’m calling for you to do more. 

The hardest part for me is not always delivering the exercise part anymore, it’s the convincing you that you can actually reach an incredible destiny if you believed in yourself a little or sometimes a lot more.

The heartbreaking part for me is to see some of the talent we have not live to their incredible potential, and it often comes down to self-doubt.

If you analyse your capabilities and what many of you have done at our gym for example, then it’s clear for me and everyone else, to see that some of you have made life-changing progress, that has often taken huge resolve, great determination and often big struggles against adversity.

Can you imagine applying that to everything else you do in life? Can you imagine applying it to your job, a new career maybe or a new business even?

All that energy, all that drive, all that strength and endurance you now have under pressure? It is an incredible force and I’m calling on you to do it.

We talked about this week a lot, be the MOST ENTHUSIASTIC PERSON in each room you go in. Inspire your friends and colleagues to do better. Inspire your friends and family to exercise, to eat better and fresher food, and show them the clear outstanding difference it’s already made in your lives.

The biggest legacy you can ever leave to anyone is one that you helped at least one person create a better life. You helped them become more and made them believe too.

It’s very easy to be negative, to accept the doubt that others often impose on you while the real ultra-talented YOU is waiting to get out. 

Get your head down, find the driving force WHY you want to do something different and hugely meaningful, something great and get working on your passion.

All starts with your energy levels, and to get that you MUST be exercising, you must eat right and you MUST choose positive people to be your true friends, as you’re going to need them to lift you up when times get tough.

Crush negativity, embrace positivity and go and get what really gets you excited in life.

Why you need to show your enthusiasm.

If you are a mother, father, grandmother, stepfather, loyal friend, making your next big move in the world, have your own business or just about any role in society, you need to step UP your enthusiasm to enable you to lead better.

When you show enthusiasm, people will respond to your energy. You may have guessed by now you are likely to show more enthusiasm when you are fitter and healthier, and energy runs through you all day. These are facts and I see it DAILY from everyone I train.

When you show negativity, guess what’s going to happen? People will naturally back away from you, they won’t see a light in you, they won’t see warmth and they definitely won’t see any leadership they want to follow.

Having a bottle of wine and takeaway sounds great midweek UNTIL the wine wears off and you become irritable and especially when you wake up in the morning, nothing wrong with a drink but it is a depressant after all and once a week on the weekend is fine.

If you don’t eat well, your energy will forever be on the floor after that initial half hour sugar rush from fast food you may pick up first things in the morning, if its in a white paper bag its usually rubbish.

We all want to be super enthusiastic about everything we do because we all want to do well AND SET A GREAT EXAMPLE to everyone we live with, work with or are friendly with, because whether you are aware of it or not, they are looking to you to show leadership and show a positive influence in their lives.

If your diet is all over the place though, you are fighting a losing battle. If you are missing exercise sessions, then this is guaranteed to further deplete your energy and put you in darker moods.

Taking responsibility for our moods is the first step. Eating right, exercising and hanging out with positive people sets great conditions for you to be the most enthusiastic person in every room you are in.

Watch the difference it makes to your life and to those who look to you for guidance in their lives.
