Fit Body Boot Camp JAN/FEB 2018


HOW TO MAN UP AND DOMINATE YOUR PATH Take Control of Your Life, Vision, Team, and Mindset

I’ve got two words for people who want to have more success in their life: MAN UP. Which also happens to be the name of my book coming out July 2018. I wrote this book because I want to help other entrepreneurs avoid falling into the same traps I did in my health, relationships, mindset, and productivity. By the end of 2014, after numerous anxiety attacks, I finally decided enough was enough and told myself, “It’s time to man up.” So now, I’m going to share the five pillars you need in order to man up and take control of your own life and business. Be Decisive Indecision has cost entrepreneurs more time and money than not making a decision. Not making a decision is making a decision. It is letting circumstances take control of the outcome, and 99.9 percent of the time, the outcome isn’t in your favor. Every decision you make doesn’t have to be the right decision; you just have to make a decision quickly. And if it’s the wrong decision, you can course correct. In my book, I teach you to start making small decisions fast so you can make the bigger decisions quickly as well. Clarity of Vision With Fit Body Boot Camp back in 2014, I didn’t know if I wanted 100, 1,000, or 5,000 locations. For me, this was a big struggle. It showed my team they had a leader who was a drifter. So I got clear on my vision: I want 2,500 locations and 1,000 owners or less by the year 2020. Clarity of Path Now that I had a clear vision, I needed a path to get there. I was the guy doing everything, which means I was also the bottleneck. So I outsourced the marketing for lead generation and replicated myself through more salespeople. All of a sudden, our number of new locations per month went from 3 to 5 to 30. If you have a clear vision, and you stray a little off, then you can course correct and get back on the path. Don’t Emotionally React An effective leader doesn’t emotionally react under stress. They respond. When you emotionally react to problems, the people around you see you as a chaotic, ineffective leader, and they start looking for an out. You don’t want to be the boss who walks in to a room and puts everyone on

edge because they don’t know what’s going to set you off that day. Make your business a place of sanctuary for your team members to become the highest performers possible. Build a High-Performance Team Fighter jets are the high performers who take ownership and exceed expectations. Crop dusters are those who are fine with being average and lack motivation. Fighter jets show up early, leave late, get the job done, and cross the finish line no matter what. Crop dusters clock in a little late, clock out a little early, and do the bare minimum to keep their job. Constantly set the bar higher for yourself, and set those same expectations for your team members. If you can meet these five pillars, then you have manned up. And fortunately, it bleeds into your health, your finances, and your relationships. Manning up is an ongoing feat, and the moment you stop manning up is the moment you drive off your path.
