This week, I hit my goal weight of 154 pounds!
I’ve been fighting to get down from 161 pounds since January.
Seven pounds over almost 11 months may not seem like much, but there were times when I thought I’d never get here.
“Maybe my bones are heavy,” I’d think. “Maybe it’s my muscles.” Or my favourite – “You’re not 30 anymore. You can’t expect to be skinny.”
But this morning when I stepped on the scale, it said 153.4. Take that, self-doubt!!!
WTF does any of this have to do with your business?
Well… a lot.
I’ve been tracking my weight since January when an ex-lover gave me a scale for Christmas. (Yes, a scale! What a great present for a woman! Did you notice I said ex-lover?)
Here’s what I’ve witnessed:
When I eat a lot of junk food, eat late at night, drink alcohol and/or don’t exercise, my weight goes up. But, when I refrain from drinking, exercise four to five mornings a week, don’t eat after 6:30 p.m., and limit junk food to one treat a week, it goes down.
Stop the presses!!!
Yes, I know this is nothing new… but it does reinforce this fact of life:
The results you get in anything reflect your actions. This is as true for your weight as it is for your business.
When I spend the day watching TV or surfing social media silently comparing myself to others and feeling like crap about it, I don’t attract new clients. (What? How can that be?)
But when I stick to good habits – going to networking meetings, following up with people I meet, asking for referrals, and sending out emails like this one on the regular – I get new clients. (I know! Wow! It’s like magic!)
Success in business is the result of building successful habits and repeating them over time.
One of the most important habits you can build is connecting with and communicating with people on the regular.
This can be done through messaging people you already know (one-on-one and in bulk emails like this one) or by creating something to reach new audiences be that a challenge, a downloadable lead magnet, a webinar, or something else.
I help coaches, transformational consultants, and other life-changers with all of the above.
