What do successful business people have in common?

Share This Post

Maybe I am one eyed but after reading the latest BRW and some of the stories of business owners in the fastest growing 100 businesses, I noticed a common thread of some of the top people. It was a theme echoed in another article in the Courier Mail about the mythical ‘Work life balance’ which is indeed another topic. But, quoted in both these were business owners who simply ‘made time’ for their fitness routines by carving out appointments in their diary like any other important meeting.

Imagine putting off a really important client on a regular basis? You just wouldn’t do it as part of being professional, so why do most people feel it is okay to do it to themselves? I believe it is because of a skewed set of values or a belief that ‘this is only for a short time’. Sometimes that short time turns in to a lifestyle. If you truly value your health and  your own time,  you will find a way to perform a fitness routine that advances your health and yes your performance which you will find usually rubs off in ALL other areas. As Mr Bouris said to one of the guys in the winning team of a challenge,  in the ridiculous yet watchable  Celebrity Apprentice, “once a champion mate, always a champion”.  You know what they say, excellence is a habit not an act.

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
