WHAT POWERLIFTING TAUGHT ME ABOUT BUSINESS
You will achieve things you could NEVER in your wildest dreams expect to achieve.
From failing a 20kg bench press with no spotter.
& being laughed at by these 2 guys when i was in the weights area when i first started.
To representing my country internationally, winning national titles & breaking records.
It taught me consistency is one of the most unsexy things, but also one of the most important. Showing up when you don’t feel like it. Realizing and knowing it’s not all sunshine and rainbows but still showing up to the gym / in business because you have your eye on the prize.
It taught me the power of visualisation.
5 weeks out leading up to every competition, every night going to bed, i visualised what it would be like to squat the weight i wanted. No joke. I think that played a massive part of my success. The things that gave me an edge were the things i did outside of the gym & how that translated on the platform. Just like what’s going to give YOU an edge in business is who you’re BEING behind the scenes, and how that translates to your energy when you DO show up.
It taught me you have the ability to go further than you can EVER imagine if you put your mind to it.
That I was capable of achieving things i could literally never have imagined when i first started. Despite how crazy, far, unlikely your goals may be right now. In 2012 when I first picked up a barbell, i never imagined i’d be good enough to compete for my country & break national records. Then when I fell in love with the sport, and wanted so badly to be one of the best, part of me was convinced i’d never be good enough. But I fully fucking backed myself, showed up, and went further than 2012 me EVER would’ve imagined.
Just like in biz. From going through the 9-5 motions to trying to land my first client wanting to go full time, thinking it was a pipe dream. To actually making it happen, travelling & stay at luxury hotels, & living in my dream city.
All I did was fully back & trust myself with the decisions I made & actions I took.
And that’s all you need to do to get further than you will ever imagine✨
