Motivational Tips and Success|Daily Dose of Dave – Resistance

Everybody needs motivation and success whether you are a small business owner, entrepreneur, or just an everyday person trying to struggle and fight through resistance and tough times. In today’s “Daily Dose of Dave” Dave McGarry talks about resistance and how tempting it is to take the path of least resistance. However, he points out that everyone needs a little bit of inspiration and you should look to those people who should have quit but despite being rejected and having a lot of resistance to their product or service kept pushing on and achieved greatness! You to can do that. Also, remember the quote from Jim Rohn who said, “don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.” So, what type of resistance are you facing? What is it that you need to get better at to achieve greatness for yourself. Work on that one thing today and never quit! Until tomorrow make it a great day.

Are you going to be spooked forever?

I am sitting here the eve before the eve of Halloween and watching all the scary ads from the politicians on TV. As much as we hate the political ads that are constantly running on TV before the election, the truth of the matter is, politicians know they work and that is why the blast them nonstop.

Now, I am not going to talk politics today, but what I want do want to talk to you about today is, your mind set. Let me ask you a simple question, “Do you dwell on the fact that things are not going to get better?”  The reason I am asking this question is because I saw a poll that said people are less optimistic today then a few years ago about whether or not they would be able to live the America Dream. I was kinda baffled by this. I mean we live in the greatest country in the world and the potential for greatness has never been better. We have so many more advantages then are grandparent and parents did that it is unconscionable to me to think that the American Dream is dead! And for those of you that are hoping that the election will change that then think again. It doesn’t matter what political affiliation you have government is never going to be the answer. If you want a better life or better career it is up to you!  You have to choose whether or not you are going to continue to be spooked by all the negative things around you or whether or not you are going to step up today and decide to move forward with your career, life, and relationships. I believe things are going to get better, but that is my choice in believing that. I once heard a quote from someone who said, “Any day above ground is a great one!”

So, let me challenge you today! Decide today is going to better, start dreaming again!

Okay before I go let me tell you a little something about me that you may not know. Several years ago I started doing this with my clients and it worked for them and myself. Typically this time of year people start to check out and put everything off until the New Year. Well, what I did was set my New Year’s goals and start my New Year on Nov 1st! Yes, two months before everyone else. The main reason I started this was to help me get through the holidays when sometimes it is tough to stay focused. This approach also worked well with my health and fitness goals because it helped me keep a balanced approached on my eating.

Now, this might not work for you, but do me a favor and don;t wait until election day to start believing in bigger and better things. Start believing that things are going to be great today!

As we say in the fitness industry it is never too late to start exercising and changing your lifestyle. That principle is the same for you personally.

On Monday I am going to be sharing with you a few things  I have planned for my New Year! See you then!

Your “Big Idea”

I just got back from vacation and I am refreshed and all fired up again. It is amazing what happens to you mentally when you get away from the daily grind and recharge the batteries. Okay, well what I want to talk to you about today is creating your “Big Idea”. What I am referring to is Donny Deutsch’s show and book called “The Big Idea.” I have seen the show many times and read the book over the holiday weekend. The stories are motivational and inspiring for anyone who wants to be more and create their own business. So, here is my question for you. What is your “Big Idea”? If you want to make a difference in this world and be more than “just a trainer” then you need to find what you can contribute to this world. Once you find your ‘Big Idea” start moving to create it and just by moving you will start down the path of greatness. Here is how to start thinking about your “Big Idea”:


What are you passion about?

Maybe it is working with kids, and if so, maybe you can create a healthier snack for kids or maybe create a pre-school that focuses on physical education and rudimentary skills, as well as the other skills kids need. My point is create something that really gets your blood boiling.

What need is missing in the industry? 

What can you improve that already exists?

What segment of the market is being undeserved?

These are some questions for you to answer to get you to start thinking about your “Big Idea”. Quit sitting around waiting for something to happen. Use your skills and strengths to create something big. Each and everyone one of us was put here to make a difference. So get moving and if you ned some help feel free to post or email me.
