Just listening to one of my mentors the other day and the topic of discussion was the 2 main ways to build a business,
1. You work smart and build the tallest proudest business so that when it comes to your industry you are the only one that stands out, head and shoulders above the others just like the iconic Twin Towers!
Nb. this yields fantastic results but is very difficult and requires effort.
2. Unfortunately, the easiest and most common way to build a business that stands out is to tear down all the business’ around you using underhand tactics and bad mouthing so that yours is the only one that is still standing. Making it stand out by default.
Nb. this a weak strategy that inevitably fails!
Now I can hear you sitting there saying
‘That’s terrible I would never do that…’
But it doesn’t just apply to business,
Just watching the microcosm that is Facebook you can see these similar patterns.
You wanna get fat then insult skinny people,
You wanna eat junk food call out the ‘health freaks’ as being obsessive,
You wanna slob 24/7 then tell everyone how dangerous exercise is for your ‘body type’
Btw lazy is not a body type 😉
Thing is most of the time your average Joe doesn’t realise he is doing it.
It’s just that it gives a false sense of achievement
It’s much easier to do and doesn’t require effort!
Do me a favour though, just for a moment think of Facebook in purely business terms.
You are a business and your status’ are your flyers that should build a positive image of yourself
But what they usually tend to be are a blatant attempt to knock others down.
Well today for you my friend it stops!
If you want to make serious health changes,
If you want to get the body of your dreams then
You need to make a conscious decision to build yourself as standing head and shoulders from the crowd!
You need to be the most successful human in town!!
Btw, just as in business this is gonna take a lot of work and some serious effort:
Think of yourself as a business that you need to promote.
From today start talking about how much you are looking forward to your freshly prepared dinner that you have taken time to think about, shop for and prepare.

Start being accountable to friends and family by telling them how you are working hard at sculpting a new physique, be proud of your gym efforts!
Make your status updates interesting snippets about your life,
Believe it or not REAL FRIENDS want to see you do well!
The power of the mind is unending and by marketing yourself as the best version of yourself you can possibly be,
then guess what…
You WILL become that person!
