I got the idea for this blog post from my buddy and up and coming fitness info super star Anthony Myers.
He had posted the question “how have you changed?” on his Facebook page and that got me thinking…
… change… we’re all in a constant state of change. Some of us change faster than others and some of us have changed in the wrong direction – I know I have.
I was the kid who never graduated junior high school. I got a certificate of attendance. (I guess that’s want happens when you periodically show up.)
In high school I was the kid who was told by more than one teach that I should “join the military because only the military could help me.”
I hated learning…
I used to be the dude that got into a lot of trouble…
I had a chip on my shoulder so I got into fighting…
I liked fighting, so I became a bouncer at a bar that attracted a lot of skinheads – I won some… I lost some.
I lived out of my Toyota pickup and thought it was cool – till it rained.
At one point – not too long ago – I owed over $110K to a friend and mentor and was scared to death that I couldn’t pay him back.
The thought of speaking in public, up on stage used to freak me out.
I had a problem with authority…. Well, I still do actually 😉
I’ve changed a lot over the years, though.
Now I love learning (as long as it’s on my terms and things I’m passionate about).
I’d rather talk my way out – than fight my way out.
I own seven figure businesses and get to help thousands of fitness professionals make it to the top.
I paid back every penny I owed to my friend and mentor.
And these days I can’t wait to get up on stage and teach the things I know to an industry that I’m so passionate about.
Yeah, I’ve changed a lot.
How about you…How have YOU change?
