How Your Business’s Goals Mirror Your Fitness Goals
July 20, 2015 Leave a comment
Did you know that many of the goals you set for your business are incredibly similar to the goals you set for yourself in regards to your personal fitness? There are many different things that are necessary for success in both of these areas. Next, let’s discuss a few of them.
Results don’t happen overnight
Patience is the name of the game. You won’t get ripped overnight, and you won’t get into the Fortune 500 either. But, with hard work and perseverance, you too will be able to find success.
You need a plan
This is true while you are trying to achieve your fitness goals; you can’t simply go to the gym and lift weights everyday and magically turn into the hulk, nor go running whenever you feel like and shed that weight/tone up.
Similarly, a plan is necessary when starting a business. Just as you might visit a personal trainer to get some advice for making a workout schedule, consider doing the same for your business. Perhaps you’ll make a business plan, or you might hire someone to advise you on business practices.
You won’t always be in your comfort zone
When you are working on your fitness, the fact that you getting in shape will require some discomfort should be painfully obvious. Exercise requires a lot of initial discomfort, but the labor pays off in the end when you meet your fitness goals.
The same can be said with starting and maintaining your business. You may have to many things that you aren’t comfortable with, like hiring/firing employees, making sales, pitching your business to clients and customers, or any other number of things that make you uncomfortable. But, as with exercise, you’ll reap the rewards in the end.
