The Personality of Success

As a personal trainer you meet some interesting personalities. None is more interesting than the personality of success, and the personality of failure.

Lets start with the personality of failure.

They are always late for sessions. They don’t understand the investment they have made both in time and money in personal training. They think this will just be another ‘thing’ that I once did, a conversation starter at dinner perhaps. If you ask them, they will tell you how serious they are about achieving their goals. Yet become a fly on the wall, you would quickly see nothing could be further from the truth. After you pour your heart and soul out, explaining to them why they need to eat more wholesome natural foods, you find them at a food court ordering a cookie with a milkshake. Like a bully in a playground, their face smug with a smile, they think it’s funny and laugh as they take their first bite.

The personality of failure doesn’t assume responsibility for their lives. They see their personal trainer as a ‘good spirit’ but will one day realize the reality of life and that is; life just is. It’s bigger than you so don’t try and change it.

If we compare that with the personality of success, they are emotional, physically and mentally invested every step of the way. In fact, before they invested a dime into your service, they researched and scoured the local area in search of the best.

They ask a LOT of questions. They come in early in hope they can milk more time from you. They ask for more exercises when the session is over. They ask if there is any supplements or anything else they can be doing. They seek to understand the process so they can better commit themselves to it. Ultimately they are ‘learners’.

They treat personal training as another adventure and the trainer as their own personal guide. When you as a trainer invest knowledge into them, they show their appreciation with gifts for your birthday and cards at Christmas. They realise, you aren’t just a ‘trainer’, but a person who is physically and emotionally invested into their goals. They hold themselves to a higher standard than anyone ever asks of them. Because of this they are always told, ‘don’t be so hard on yourself’. But it’s because of this attitude of demanding more from themselves, which enables them to get more from life. They believe that their personal trainer is bound for success too as they too share the attitude of ‘demanding more.

The thing is, these are just personality traits.

They are personal traits that enable people to reach the top of any field, whether it is the top of a fitness modeling stage or a champion of the business world.

The personality of success is in those that ‘invest’ themselves in the process and actually ‘believe’ in the outcome. They ‘show up’ on time, every time. They don’t care so much about the result as they do about giving it their very best. 

Life is a game and there is only one way to play… Fully invested.

Yours in health and wisdom,
