STOP WHINING AND START WINNING
Are you a victim of circumstance or do you take ownership when things aren’t going to plan?
I get very frustrated when approached by people who think it’s always someone else’s fault. You know the types, (you may be one yourself).
“I just can’t motivate myself”
“The whole world is against me”
“I’ll never be able to achieve that”
And it’s true, we ALL will go through times in our lives when things are hard and the whole world appears against us.
There are those who will sit around, mope and every day feel themselves being sucked into an ever-deeper void, from which it’s difficult to escape from. But the truth is, there is lots of help available.
For those who don’t have a family and friends support network there are lots of local initiatives aimed at reenergizing and motivating people – We work with several of them in the Chester area – their commitment and the good work they do is fantastic and mostly under-estimated.
“Clear your mind of can’t”
That’s one of our underpinning business messages, and we at Rage Fitness Company are there to help too. The work that we do across the local community, NHS, schools and other sectors is all about that re-energization of individuals.
It’s proven – A fitter mind and body is a much more focused machine, far likelier to succeed.
As originally stated – We will all go through hard times. People are there to help….Lots of people. But WE, YOU have got to start that process and take ownership for you. No-one is going to change your life, your job, your body shape for you unless you take those first steps yourself.
Circumstances count for 10% … how you deal with them counts for 90%
I have personal experiences that have challenged me through life and there will doubtless be more ahead. I’d like to think that the way I have tackled these have helped to shape the person I am today.
I’m a man and sometimes it’s harder for men to ask for help – We see it as a sign of weakness, but quite the opposite in my humble opinion.
But this isn’t about me.
There is an extraordinary young lady called Jessica Cox, who, although she was born with no arms, has a black belt in two martial arts and a private pilot’s license
Jessica says: “Circumstances count for 10% … how you deal with them counts for 90%”.
This certainly stops me in my tracks when I am tempted to blame circumstances for something I didn’t achieve.
So next time you’re tempted to complain about something, think of Jessica – what would she say?
If you think we can help, get in touch. If you’re worried about taking that first step, read some quotes on our website www.ragefitnesscompany.com from people who had similar worries and are loving the experience.
If you need more motivation, why not visit www.jessicacox.com and watch Jessica discuss her life.
Whether working as individuals or as part of a team, it’s time for us all to take ownership, stop whining and start winning at this game called “life”.
