Monday Mindset: You can quit tomorrow, just NOT today! (2007)

Happy Monday!

I cannot believe February is already here and into our second month of 2020!

The average American has long given up on their “New Year’s Resolutions”, but not you! I know you are going strong as we enter week 3 of our NYNY challenge and believe that 2020 is going to be YOUR year of greatness!!

And thinking of new year’s resolutions, it got me to reflect on my own fitness transformation which came in January of 2007.

So I wanted to take a minute to be vulnerable and share my story with you; in the hopes to provide you some inspiration to keep going when times get tough (which if they haven’t already, they definitely will)…

While I wasn’t massively overweight, I had a less than desirable physique of having an extra 15 lbs. of fat and 15 lbs. less on muscle on my frame.

But more than that, I lacked confidence, self-esteem, enthusiasm and the ZEST FOR LIFE that I now possess.

I had moved to Los Angeles about 18 months prior from the Midwest where I went to grammar school, high school and university.

The sunshine and faster pace life of Southern California was certainly an upgrade in many respects..

But being 21 years young, having very little life and professional experience, virtually no valuable skillset to offer any employer aside from effort, and moving 2,300 miles from home without a solid network of family/ friends, all while moving to the “plastic capital of the world”  had its big challenges.

Providing full insight, there were many more dark days than light ones.

But after I gutted through the first year of Los Angeles living, a fortuitous situation happened… A friend from college named Adam Hartwell moved from Michigan to Orange County and we decided to become roommates.

And at the time I didn’t know it, but my life was about to change.

You see…Adam was BUFF, he was a fitness guy who was in incredible shape! He had 6 pack abs, chiseled muscles, tons of confidence, all the girls attention and was seemingly always high on life!

I looked up to him and at first, was a bit intimidated at the thought of living together due to my own insecurities! But after some reflection decided to view it as an opportunity to learn about “Fitness, lifting weights and eating clean” which I knew very little about.

So after we moved in and got settled after a few weeks; I decided to muster up enough courage and asked him if I could tag along with him for his work outs, and if he would be willing to teach me how to “get fit” like he was.

Without hesitation, he said yes; but that only if I was serious.  And if so, I had to be ready every day at 6pm with my gym clothes on, and ready for an intense work out, no excuses.

I eagerly accepted and tagged along for what seemed like an eternity during the first 60 days, which turned out up being nearly 2 years of training together.

We would go to the gym every day, hit the weights through an intense circuit, and drink a protein shake, veggies and a gallon of water every night.  It was absolutely grueling! There were many times I wanted to quit as the sore muscle, body was tired and taste buds salivating for candy/sweets seemingly never ended.

But every time when I was about to throw in the towel,  I dug deep and stuck it out with my internal motto “I can quit tomorrow, just not today.”

And then something magical happened…

Within about 3 months, my physique begin to change. I remember seeing myself in the mirror in April from a side angle; and barely recognized myself as my face had thinned.

Throughout all the pain; it was ACTUALLY WORKING!!

And then once I saw progress, I became inspired! As Tony Robbins says “progress equals motivation!!”

So I dug in further; and after about handful of months, my initial fitness transformation was realized.

Ironically my weight stayed the exact same (starting and ending at roughly 180lbs), but ripped off 15 lbs. of fat and put 15lbs of muscle. And while I had accomplished my goal of acquiring a better physique, I got a whole lot more than I bargained for as the real transformation wasn’t physical, the vast majority of it was mental!

My identity and mindset began to change. I had more energy, more mental clarity and enthusiasm to live life. I acquired more confidence and consequently, turned into the most successful sales rep of my company.

I was able to take on new challenges, which led to me moving abroad, learning a foreign language and ultimately starting a fitness company with Tatiana, where we are both able to serve our team and clients.

And humbling myself, all this came from fitness, coaching and accountability.

And this my friends is why I am so passionate to serve you. I was in pain, depressed, and lacked confidence. And what I found through fitness, absolutely changed my life and know it can for you!!!

So keep your head up. Know it’s not easy and you will have many tough times where you think of quitting just like I did. But if you keep at it, keep coming to boot camp, keep tapping into your coaches and fit family and think to yourself, “I can QUIT TOMORROW, just NOT TODAY”.

And just like me, 13 years later you will be going STRONGER!

Let’s make in an INCREDIBLE WEEK!

Committed to YOUR success,

Coach Bryce

Monday Mindset: We are promised nothing 458 299 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: We are promised nothing

Happy Monday.

Being honest, it’s a somber start to my week with the news of the late Kobe Bryant’s passing yesterday (with his 13 year old daughter and other fatalities); and you might feel the same way.  What a sad shock.

For me, moving to Los Angeles in my early 20’s, I cannot claim I am a true or die hard Lakers fan. Although, I do like to see them win.

But much more than that, I can tell you with absolute certainty, I was a Kobe Bryant fan.

There was a lot to love about him; as he was a true winner in every sense of the word. Nick named the “Black Mamba” because he had heart, passion, drive and intensity. Those things are amazing qualities and gifts he possessed.

Ultimately though, he never relied on his skill as his life philosophy (although he had plenty); rather he was known for his colossal work ethic which I believe to be a true reason for his 5 World Championships.  And in my humble opinion, there is no bigger compliment you can give a person than to compliment them on their work ethic, being that this is a factor that all of us can control (which most other things in life, we cannot).

So while a very sad time for sports and humanity due to the positive influence he brought to the world; Kobe lived an incredible life (even being cut short) and we must not lose sight of that. As the true tragedy is if we do not learn a lesson from this all.

And the lesson is that nor fame or fortune provides any promise. The reality is (whether rich or poor, famous or not) we all live a finite life, you and me both. Our time will come, sooner than later, and the truth is that much of the things that happen within our time frame are outside our control.

And the problem is that many of us (myself included); can focus far too much on the things we cannot control, versus the things we can. In that situation, it leads to a life of frustration, sadness, anxiety and suffering.

So my call to action today is not to focus on the things outside of our control, as that is wasted energy and what unhappy people do…

Rather focus and spend 100% of your energy on what you can control.

As you can control the relationships you invest in, what time you go to bed and wake up, what sort of effort you will give today, what passion you bring to your work, what type of food you will put in your mouth, whether or not you will move your body or if you will be consistently kind to others.

My friend, you and me both are not promised anymore than today. That’s the bad news.

But the good news is that if you focus entirely on what you can control and what truly counts in life (Heath, Fitness, Family and Relationships); then you will live a life well lived just like Kobe did.  And I know he would want that for you too.

So I beg of you to learn the lesson and to live with fire, passion, intensity and urgency towards a mission that you believe in.

And if you do that, whether you live to 41 or 141, that’s a life well lived.

RIP Kobe Bryant

Monday Mindset: The secret to your success… 1024 545 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: The secret to your success…

Happy Monday!

Exciting things happening her at boot camp, as our NYNY Challenge just launched today after our Orientations last week! We have just about 150 Challengers at our local locations and nearly 15,000 challengers FBBC Worldwide!  We are PUMPED UP!

The point of all this is, is to focus in and develop ourselves to be the best versions of ourselves by cleaning up our nutrition, being held accountable through coaching, and focusing on going the EXTRA mile (aka extra finishers), over the next 56 days TOGETHER as a TEAM to get RESULTS!

Which leads me to the main content of today’s message which is the power of leadership, development and TEAM training!

You see… last weekend a dozen of our leadership teammates participated in a team training led by good friends of mine, a former US Marine and Navy Seal, Steve Eckert and Ray Care;  called LTD Training (Leadership & Team Development).

The training was comprised of physical & team building activities in addition to classroom time where we debriefed to ensure the lessons were learned and can be implemented!

The activities included doing relay racing, carrying wooden logs, team work outs, and dizzy acrobatics, after being spun in a circle 12 times, don’t even ask…. 😉

We also learned how to provide better client support and service, and better ways to improve our communication and program; which means better results for YOU & our clients!  There were so many takeaways (I could go on for hours); but wanted to share the biggest one which is communication and teamwork!

As it’s a known fact that in the military, no one can work alone and be successful. The stakes are too incredibly high in the battlefield (life or death).  So the only way to be successful is to build a team, communicate and continuously work together. As if you don’t…. the consequences can be grave.

But as we learned, that’s the same in the “Battlefield of Business” or the “Battlefield of Life”. The truth is no one can do it alone, (not you or me); as true success is building a team (family, friends, coworkers, fitness coaches, etc. ); communicating and continuously working together!

So the more you can find people to support you, to communicate with you and to work together (in any aspect of your life), the more successful you will be!

And the good news is that this is our focus at Fit Body Boot Camp, to be an instrumental part of your “Fitness team”; and through the power of coaching, accountability, communication and teamwork; we can do BIG THINGS TOGETHER, which includes achieving MASSIVE RESULTS!

Have a GREAT Monday, and let’s make this week count!

Monday Mindset: THE BIG LIE: Boot Camp (or any exercise) makes you lose weight 521 249 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: THE BIG LIE: Boot Camp (or any exercise) makes you lose weight

HAPPY MONDAY!!

And yes, you read that correctly…

While boot camp and/or exercise burns calories; the reality of the situation is that the fitness industry has been marketing exercise very wrong regarding its claims on driving weight loss for many years.

Yes, typically people who work out, tend to eat better on average since they are investing in themselves; so there is a bunch of researching showing there is a big and distinct correlation.

But the reality of the situation is that NUTRITION is BY FAR the #1 factor in weight loss and/or body composition change, NOT exercise!

So if you have ever heard the phrase: “You cannot out train a bad diet.”…

Well, there is much truth to this. And this is a paradigm shift that is so little, but CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!

That all said, the good news though (and not to bash boot camp) is that research is showing exercise is the single most beneficial thing you can do for your brain, to be healthier, happier and live longer (aside from quitting smoking); so there is MASSIVE MASSIVE value in it, aside from the correlation above. As when you do exercise, your brain works better, producing more clarity, energy and higher cognitive function. These are all incredible things!

In addition to the fact that when you combine a boot camp regiment with clean nutrition, the results are compounded!!

But if you are looking to lose weight, burn body fat, and reshape your body; clean Nutrition (not exercise alone), is the MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO!!

That all said, and since this is so important, and as we have entered a new year/decade; I wanted to set the tone to challenge you to not only exercise 4-5 times per week, but REALLY focus on your nutrition!

Lean Proteins, veggies, fruits and plenty of water (half your body weight in ounces), will do wonders for your physique if you are looking to burn fat, lean out, or better your body composition!

And if you need more help, guidance, or accountability, I would highly recommend you reply to this email ASAP.

We have an 8-week nutrition coaching program launching this week (referred to as the New Year New You Challenge).

So if you do need more help, support, a custom meal plan based off your body type/measurements, and weekly coaching; the TIME IS NOW as we are here to help!!

But regardless whether or not you join our nutrition coaching program; it is time to work out, drink water, and clean up that nutrition as NUTRITION is the real secret to your success!!!

Make it a GREAT WEEK!!

Monday Mindset: How do you eat an elephant? (2020 plan) 1024 662 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: How do you eat an elephant? (2020 plan)

Happy New Year and excited for big things happening in 2020!!

Lots of movement going on here at Fit Body Boot Camp including our New Year New You Challenge which launches on Jan 20; and would encourage you to join! It’s also strategically timed to launch when it does, as the average American typically gives up on their New Year Resolution by the 3rd week of January. Ouch!!

Why that is?

Well, most people try to create these GIANT, and ELABORATE plans to completely 180 degree changes in their habits given their goals for the entire year.  And when the going gets tough (which it does for everyone), and a full YEAR seems extremely overwhelming, we end up throwing in the towel.

However, this year, it will be different!!!

Why?

Well, I’m sure you have heard the saying, how do you eat an elephant:?  **Which in this case, signifies a MASSIVE goal/timeline.

The answer:

1 bite at a time!!

That is why here at Team Henson FBBC, we are implementing a strategy by famous author and business coach Gino Wickman. In this strategy called “EOS”,  instead of planning for the entire year (which the yearly vision is still created); we actually set specific 90 day goals. Basically, chunking the year into bite size goals.

This way, we have clear focus and achievable action items for the first 90 days of 2020. Then at the end of March, our leadership team meets again, and will plan the next 90 day goals; and the process repeats every 90 days.

To provide insight, aside from daily operations, our leadership created 4 priorities to implement in late December for the first 90 days of 2020 which are:

  • Execute a very successful NYNY Challenge with over 250 challengers that get MASSIVE results for our clients (goal is to beat our 757 lb Fall Challenge Result).
  • Implement a better onboarding process, where every person gets a Nutrition and Goals Setting session (to provide better service, results and coaching to our clients).
  • Run 1 BIG community/social event for our clients per each location (to build more community and deeper friendships at camp).
  • Create more love, praise, and recognition for our members by creating a Wall of Achievement for clients who have lost 25lbs, 50lbs, 75lbs, and 100lbs (as we know what gets praised gets repeated)!

So, for our boot camps, these are our 4 priorities to execute by March 31. Then we meet again, reflect and create another 90 day action plan….

The beautiful thing and why the system has achieved so much success in other people & companies, as chunking the year in bite size parts makes things more manageable, so the success rate is higher.

In addition, if something unexpected comes up and we get thrown off track (which life does happen), instead of throwing in the towel for the whole year, we only underperform in the 90 day window. Then we get back up, dust off and create our marching orders for the next 90 days!!

So, I share this strategy today as a strong recommendation for you to do the same!! If you haven’t already, think about what you want to accomplish for the year, and then create bite sized, 90 day goals that you desire to complete by March 31 which will create more traction and success in your life!

My strong recommendation, 1 of them should be to enroll in our NYNY Challenge so you can start the New Year right with strong fitness and RESULTS!

And the beautiful thing, is we will be checking in with you every quarter with updates on our 90 day planning, this way you have visibility and will serve as a reminder for you to do the same!

Happy New Year friends, or should I say Happy Quarter 1 of 2020?!   😉

Monday Mindset: It’s the end….

Hello Fit Family!

As our decade is coming to a close, we have a fresh start on the horizon!

I received the below message from Fit Body Boot Camp’s CEO Bedros Keuilian; and thought it was very fitting for today’s mindset message so wanted to share!!

Have a FANTASTIC Finish to 2019, and let’s GO 2020!!!

Coach Bryce

“Team, it’s the end.

It’s the end of the year.

And it’s the end of a decade.

It’s the end of old habits that don’t serve you.

It’s the end of negativity.

It’s the end of procrastination.

It’s the end of self doubt.

It’s the end of self hate.

It’s the end of negative self talk.

It’s the end of poor eating.

It’s the end of excessive drinking.

It’s the end of smoking.

It’s the end of accepting mediocrity.

It’s the end of not exercising regularly.

It’s the end of taking shortcuts.

It’s the end of staying in bad relationships.

As we go into a new year and a new decade I hope you use this time to draw the line in the sand and end the things that don’t serve you or make you the best version of yourself…

…and start the new and better habits, new mindset, working on yourself and doing the things and thinking the thought that make you the best version of the person you want to be.

Not only is this the end.

It’s also a new beginning.

Always here to support you in your journey to becoming the best version of you.

-Bedros”

Monday Mindset: Do you see these RESULTS?! We are 747.3 lbs. LIGHTER!!!! 419 220 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: Do you see these RESULTS?! We are 747.3 lbs. LIGHTER!!!!

Happy Monday!

It’s a short week because of the holidays, so extra important we the most of our work, family and friend time! Let’s make every moment count!!

And yes, as we enter the holidays, yes you should enjoy them! Be present and focused at spending time with your love ones.

But also, be kind to yourself. You can have some dessert and foods you don’t normally eat, but just remember your body isn’t a garbage disposal either.

Sometimes we find ourselves (myself included) in an “all bets are off” mentality and easy to think we can fill ourselves past any limit, just because its available.

That’s should not be the case; especially as we enter a new year/decade and FRESH off some incredible Fall Challenge results which I want to highlight again today as they were so impressive!!!

To give some insight; this past year, we launched our “Direct Macro Counting” Nutritional Coaching Protocol for the challenges, and being Nutrition is the biggest driver in weight/fat loss; the results were ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!!

We will continue to use this Nutrition Coaching Protocol for our Challenges (New Year New You) being our next one which kicks off 2020 in January; and yet just another way for Fit Body Boot Camp to stand out and help YOU, our incredible clientele!

And the best news is that after the challenge in the spring, plan to launch the Nutrition Coaching Program for those clients who need more help and accountability with their nutrition throughout all times of the year, (not just challenges) so stay tuned!!

2020 is going to be AMAZING; filled with more health, fitness and RESULTS!!!!

That all in mind, below is a recap of our Fall Challenge success! I share it with you to

1) acknowledge all the hard work of not only the winners, but everyone who participated &

2) inspire you to enjoy the holidays, but so that your MINDSET is set to STRONG!! This way you are aware of your limits so that we are not digging ourselves any big fitness holes that need to be dug out of as we start the New Year and New Decade!!!

As such, for all 3 camps, we lost a combined 747.3 lbs. during the challenge!!! And the average person lost 7lbs who participated!!!

**To give some context, the average American gains 4-5lbs throughout the year which compounds year after year.

That is a GIANT WIN for YOU and our CAMP! WAHOO!!

And the winners below were calculated as a percentage lost against their starting measurements (to keep it fair across the board).

Yorba Linda

1st       Brett    McCormick     7.7 lbs. and 4.4 body fat percentage down

2nd      Ruben  Martinez         20.7 lbs. and 5.2 body fat percentage down

3rd       Yogi     Hawkins           6 lbs. and 7.8 body fat percentage down

Mission Viejo

1st       Russell Crabtree          29.4 lbs. and 10.6 body fat percentage down

Monday Mindset: The season of giving 1024 1024 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: The season of giving

No matter how you celebrate the holidays, one thing is for certain; it inspires a sense of giving as tis the season!

Of course, receiving is fun. But we know with age and maturity, the sense of fulfillment with giving is 2nd to none.

So whether it’s a gift to a family member, a favor for a friend, giving yourself time to reflect or work on your health/fitness, or a random act of kindness to a stranger; giving will provide the fulfillment you seek!

So I highly recommend you take a moment, smell the roses and add value and/or a helping hand to someone in need (always, and especially during this time of year).

And in this spirit, I would like to bring to your attention another way to give; while also receiving in a major way…

As you know, Fit Body Boot Camp is more than just a gym; we’re about building a better quality of life… and this happens both inside and out of our 4 walls. Whether it’s pushing someone during a workout, greeting a newcomer for their first session, or lending a helping & giving hand; FBBC is about creating an environment where we push our limits to become the best version of ourselves…

And if you’re motivated by helping others, or if you’ve ever heard your internal voice say, “you can do more…”

More giving, more service, more impact, more travel, and/or more experience; we can relate….

 

THE WHY: 

We are excited to announce our 4th FBBC Volunteer Trip headed to Costa Rica this upcoming May 2020, and you are invited!! Travel, volunteering, pushing comfort zones, bonding, strengthening our FBBC Family Culture, an enhanced life experience, and service are all HUGE staples of this trip. Over the last 3 years, this trip has gained traction with FBBC locations in Michigan, California, Florida, Oklahoma, Arizona, and more… and this year will be the best one yet!!

THE WHAT: 

The chance to visit one of the most beautiful places in Central America; Costa Rica from May 17 – May 24, 2020 volunteering. Over the last 4 years, we have partnered with Dream Volunteers (headed by Brian Buntz) to visit Providencia, Costa Rica for a week-long trip centered around service and individual growth. Brian is a mentor, and close friend of mine who has over 20+ years planning world travel, service, and cultural trips. Through our three locations and my brother Barrett’s location based in Michigan, we help sponsor 8 Children in Costa Rica and across the globe; these children gain access to secondary school – something not available to every child in Central America. This service trip helps make a bigger impact across the world and within ourselves. 

As such, we already have a few sign-ups in the books, and are EXCITED for this year’s trip!

For a snap-shot into one or our previous trips look here:

Monday Mindset: 3 lessons from the last 7 years 960 720 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: 3 lessons from the last 7 years

Happy Monday!

I am still fired up from this weekend as we celebrated our locations anniversary as Yorba Linda turned 7, Mission Viejo 6 and San Marcos 4! That’s a combined 17 years of sweat sessions and fitter bodies!!!! 🎉🎉

Who would have known this little dream of creating a fitness community, to lift people up, to Inspire Fitness and Change Lives would have really turned into something special!!

Tatiana, myself and team are so GRATEUL FOR YOU for being part of it (whether you have been with us for 1 day, week, month, year or all 7 years!)

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU & CONGRATS for such a fun party to celebrate YOU!!! 🏋️‍♀️🔥❤️

And in the spirit of providing  you some value and setting the tone for the week; here are 3 big lessons I have learned in the past 7 years of running our FBBC locations that can relate to you and your life!

  1. Running a business is way harder than I ever imagined.

The hours are crazy, 7 days and 70 hours/week consistently and problems that are seemingly never ending. I have had to acquire skills and level up in things I didn’t originally have any talent in (and still working on).  This is the life of any business owner or leader of any organization. Trust me, it’s not for the faint of heart! But once you accept how hard it truly is, then it becomes more manageable.

Your take away:

Whether business, running a family, or getting fit; its hard! In fact, anything of life of value is harder than we think going in. Accept it and expect the tough climb up the mountain!! And when you do, and if you take the first step, and keep building, it will get better and eventually you will find success at anything you put your mind to (whether it’s health, wealth, career or family).

  1. “If you want to make everybody happy, don’t be a leader. Sell ice cream.”

I found that quote by Steve Jobs, and thought it was so fitting because it’s the truth! As it turns out, the #1 skill I have had to acquire (and still acquiring every day) is Leadership. Which in full disclosure, I didn’t fully realize going in; as I thought my passion for fitness would be the focus. But the fact is, that when you run a business and develop a community, you must lead people. And when  you do,  you cannot make everyone happy. That’s impossible. So, you must do what’s right, in line with your core values, and what’s best for the common good!

Your take away:  

In order to be a live a life worth living, you must be a leader; even if it’s just leading yourself. Leadership take guts, it takes courage, and it takes doing the thing that will allow you to win in the LONG term, and not the short term! So continue to make decisions (like being healthy, going to boot camp, drinking more water & eating clean); that are hard at first, but in the best interest of you and your family for the long term!

  1. Develop thick skin and avoid the Nay Sayers.

The truth is everyone has an opinion.  Many people will tell you why you cannot do this, why you cannot do that, and/or why this won’t be successful. Many of these people are close to you (and don’t have any bad intentions) just don’t want you to get hurt.

In fact, a dear family member asked me “Who in the world is going to pay for that?” after I explained the concept of group personal training before launching our first boot camp location.

One of our very first coaches was adamant that bringing in the “timer” would be the death of the business.

And my character has been attacked publicly a handful of times (from people I haven’t even met).  Unfortunately, this is all just part of the growth game and the price you must pay to be successful.

Your take away: 

I am not alone in this category.  As it turns out, on your journey you will be criticized from people who might have your best intentions at heart, they just don’t want to see you lose!  Because of this, you have to develop thick skin and be intention about your goals in life. If you want to get fit, it doesn’t matter what else anyone says. Don’t give into the peer pressure of eating bad food, just to appease others (or make them feel better about themselves). That’s not worth the sacrifice!!! As long as you are not hurting anyone else; do what’s best for you so that you may achieve your dreams!

Monday Mindset: Change Change Change!! 532 313 Bryce Henson

Monday Mindset: Change Change Change!!

Happy Monday and hope you had an incredible Thanksgiving! I cannot believe it’s December already which means our year is ending quickly and a New Year is on the horizon!

Aside from that, I just finished the book “Shut Up and Listen” by Tilman Fertitta and got a lot from the book so wanted to share.

Before I do, if you never heard of Tilman…he is a very blunt, self-made Billionaire from Houston, Texas. He owns the NBA’s Houston Rockets, the Golden Nugget (Casino & Resort), has a TV show called “Billionaire Buyer” on CNBC, Landry’s, Inc which is a holding company that that owns many restaurants that include Mastro’s Steakhouse, Morton’s Steakhouse, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. and many more.

Needless to say, he knows a lot about leadership, business, and specifically the “hospitality business” which he emphatically proclaims that all his businesses fall under (which I also believe is our primary business here at Fit Body Boot Camp and something we will continue to instill in our team & clients).

Because he is so knowledgeable, it’s hard to lock onto 1 specific concept in the book; but one of the biggest ones that he teaches and being a fundamental reason for his success; is the ability to “CHANGE, CHANGE, CHANGE.”

While he emphatically agrees that human nature instinctively resists the process of change; but at our core we all desire it and is essential for success.  Furthermore, the people and organizations who can implement change the quickest (especially in our fast paced and current day and age; are the winners in life).

In the book, he dives deep and cites many examples of consistently updating menus, restaurant designs, logos, switching out games, uniform & concept changes, etc. which has allowed him and his companies to stay ahead of the curve and achieve success!

So that is today’s message which is the concept of “embracing change” as in life, it’s the only constant. Additionally, this comes at a great timing where we are in the process of changing years, changing designs, adding teammates and evolving/creating/changing our Nutrition Coaching program (which is set to launch in 2020).

Lots of change!!!!

As such, we have 2 choices:  1) to resist change and hold on for dear life or 2) to embrace it, and using it as an opportunity to get better, learn and grow!

Certainly easier said than done, but call to action is to embrace it, and use it as an opportunity to get learn and grow!!

This is also why one of our updated core values is “Drive Change”  so we can remind ourselves, team and clients the true power behind that mindsight!!Head up, onward, and let’s make the most of our last month of 2019, before we change into a New Year and a New You!!
