A couple of weeks ago, I, Tomi, got up at 03:30 to travel down to Loughborough with Start Fitness and More Mile. Such a blessing to be able to travel with such a major brand. It was a cold day, but I had goals in mind - sell, learn, enjoy it. And I achieved all 3 goals. This connection I have with Start Fitness and More Mile is so special and therefore is my favourite or second favourite (depending on how I'm feeling) reason that I'm in Newcastle. The fact that I've been blessed with a business/mentorship relationship with the...

Whatever It Takes

Guys, You got to want to win. The will to win must be bigger than all of your fears and worries, if you actually want to achieve what you set out to achieve at the start of the year. A lot of people have already given up on their goals or 'not started yet' because in hindsight it wasn't 'practical' or they have 'too many things going on'; but the fact is that's just another excuse. All you are doing is just saying, "I wanted it but now I don't". Simple as. The fact of the matter is that you're...

There's Still Time

There's still time to accomplish those goals. There's still time to do that thing you said you'd do at the start of the year.

Persistence

The definition of persistence is continuing in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition. One of the most important variables of success is persistence. Never giving up. It may sound cliché but there is so much truth in this. I recently watched The Founder, a movie about how Ray Kroc built McDonald's into the huge successful franchise that it is today. It was very inspirational and I recommend it to everybody. Anyway, in this movie, towards the end, Ray Kroc said, "Nothing in the world can take the place of good old persistence. Talent will not; nothing...

Chase Your Dreams

This has been on my mind recently. When we are young, we are always told that we can do whatever we want when we grow up, but as time goes by, we are supposed to be more 'realistic' and more 'reasonable' and I don't know about you but this annoys me to the fullest. The sad thing is that most people accept this as a reality and settle for the job or degree that society, or our friends or our parents or career advisors have told us to do, neglecting all of the dreams we had as a youth or...
