How important is to keep a "positive attitude" in life and in Personal Training?


How you project yourself to others is crucial to the success or failure of your business...period. As a former business professional for over 20 years and now as the owner of my own Personal Training business, the one thing that I always try to project to my customers (or to any other person I meet) is.....a POSITIVE ATTITUDE. Why? Because people are very perceptive these days and they can spot a negative attitude a mile away. That attitude (combined with other non-attractive characteristics) can only lead to one thing....FAILURE. And who needs that!

In Personal Training, there are many objective's of a successful trainer has to carry out to stay at the top of their game. To list just a few: Knowledge, Experience, Professionalism, Education, Passion, Caring and many others. All very important and necessary. But what good is all of that if you can't show a positive attitude in that message? Enough said.

Be positive in everything you do and I'll guarantee you will be successful and happy in the long run. If that doesn't work, try changing your cologne...I hear "OLD SPICE" is making a comeback! Go figure.

That's all for now. And remember, " Take care of your body now and it will take care of you in the future".
