How to Sprint to Your Goal

accountability mindset Feb 12, 2021

Throughout the course of your life, you've likely accomplished many great things.

You know, things you did at a really high level.

The same fundamentals that helped you win in the past will get you where you want to go today.

That's because the path to success doesn't fundamentally change much regardless of your goal.

Let's say you want to get leaner and stronger and happier.

If yes, simply transfer that drive, focus, desire to learn, willingness to outwork the competition, and the other traits that allowed you to triumph in other areas of your life.

Let me explain.

Maybe you've been a competitive athlete.

A successful business owner.

A strong student.

Perhaps you lost a lot of weight.

Maybe you're an outstanding parent or grand parent.

Any significant success requires a ton of commitment.

It requires a collection of skills or traits.

You already have the fundamental tools you need and you already know how to use the tools.

You just need to build your next success around them again.

So reflect back to what you've done well in the past and how you've done it...

...then use those same traits to propel you to your next great achievement.

How to Sprint to Your Goal

The fastest path to where you want to go begins with YOU.

All too often men and women, over 40 years, think the magic lies in a system or a tactic or tool.

I'd argue that you need proven systems; however, the truth is that YOU are the engine that will propel you from where you are to where you want to be.

In fact, I’d go as far as to say that the best investment of your resources is an investment in yourself.

Compared to the investment you could make in a stock or a bond, a new sports car, a larger house…

…an investment back into yourself will almost always yield a better return.

See, while an automobile will depreciate over time and you’d be fortunate to average a 10% annual return on an investment in stocks, an investment in yourself will often yield far more.

If you invest in becoming the best version of yourself with more confidence, more energy, more strength with athletic levels of bodyfat... something special happens.

You’ll likely be far more valuable to the folks you serve.

If you invest in getting lean and strong, you’re almost certainly assured an annual ROI of more than 10%.

If you invest in becoming more productive (thanks to your newfound energy and strength), well, you've just made your time more valuable.

And when you accomplish more in less time, the rewards are significant. Namely you'll gain more time freedom to do what you want.

But when you invest in building your ideal body and life, the payoff is arguably beyond measure.

The truth is this: You’re the first domino in your own world.

Everything begins with you.

Want a better business? It starts with you.

Want a happier home? It starts with you.

The better you develop yourself, the greater impact you can have.

So if you want to impact many and to do great things, start with the person in the mirror.

It’s the first step toward the vision you want to create and the goals you want to achieve.

With that in mind, there are four things you have to work towards in order to get results.

Unfortunately, there is no quick fix.

Oftentimes, you spend too much time looking for the "fast" secret when, in reality, it's the regular day-in-and-day-out work that gets you closer to your goals.

Imagine building a house, on bedrock, with four sturdy walls.

Strong storms can huff and puff, yet the house remains immovable.

You might say the "secret to success" comes down to four things, and they all happen to begin with the letter "C."

1. Consistency

I've beaten this into the ground, but I feel it's the number-one thing for lasting results.

People over the age of 40 often look for the quick fix; they jump around from this detox to that kick-start.

They exercise consistently for three weeks, and then fall off track for two.

They meal prep for a couple of weeks, and then they get tired of cooking and revert back to eating fast food.

In fitness and in life, the tortoise will always win the race.

Focus on slow, steady, consistent efforts to win every day.

2. Coaching

When your car needs a tune-up, you call an expert mechanic.

When you're sick, you see a doctor with decades of specialization.

When you need to get your taxes done, hire a skilled accountant.

But why do you want these professionals on your team?

You invest in specialists because your strength is not in that particular area.

Of course you may be smart enough to do it yourself; however, you're willing to invest money to save time.

You see, time is your greatest asset.

Yes, you probably could learn how to change your own oil.

But by the time you learn how to replace your car's oil, get the necessary equipment needed to do it, and finally complete the task, you could have paid your mechanic to do it and saved time.

Again, time is your most precious commodity.

Your time is limited and, when it's gone, you can't buy more of it.

Finding the best personal trainer will save you lots of headaches.

Sure you can google "how to get stronger for skiing" or "11 gym mistakes to avoid" on your own.

But are you really doing the exercises properly?

If you have pain from an old injury, how would you modify your workouts?

Do you need someone to check in with you to keep you on track?

Do you need a shoulder to lean on?

A good coach will get you to your goals faster, safer, and you'll build life-long habits that will keep the results coming.

3. Community

Everything is easier when you have positive and like-minded folks around you.

Some days you won't feel like training.

But when you have a community of people expecting you to show up, you won't want to let them down.

If you need an extra push, a community solves that too.

Naysayers pull you down; however, a strong community builds you up.

4. Culture

This is the secret sauce. This is the magic unicorn-horn powder.

A strong gym culture can change your life.

That's our biggest differentiator at Arangio Athletic Fitness.

You can copy our smart workouts, you can buy our pro-style equipment, you can copy our world-class services, but you'll have a tough time recreating our results-guaranteed culture.

Why?

You can't buy culture and you can't copy it, because it's an intangible.

A winning culture, where everybody knows each other, everybody supports each other, the staff respect each other, and the energy is contagious, well, that's the secret sauce.

We've created a third place at Arangio Athletic Fitness.

You have your family, you have your work, and then you have your "happy place."

We're our client's third place, we just happen to be an award-winning fitness-and-nutrition coaching program.

We are in the results business.

And we just happen to deliver guaranteed results with a smart system of training, nutrition, recovery, and accountability.

Our goal is for you to stay safe, have fun, and get results. Well, that's actually three goals.

The hour you spend with us is often the best hour of your day.

If you can find a strong culture, like Arangio Athletic Fitness, you'll no longer dread exercise, you'll quit searching for the quick-fix juice cleanse, and you'll create a strong bond that can't be broken.

My challenge to you is to say "no" to shortcuts.

If you are eternally doing the latest diet, don't be surprised when, three months later, you're right back to where you started.

Stop trying to hit a home run, and instead hit single, after single, after single, after single.

If you can find any of these 4 C's, you'll be ahead of 90% of people.

The best part?

If you find all four, you'll no longer feel like "losing weight" is a chore, or something that's just on your to-do list.

If you want to become the best version of yourself, join me and a team of success-minded men and women, over the age of 40, for free.

Yes, I'll pay your tuition for the first 14 days.

It's an ethical bribe and you can apply right here.

Remember no one succeeds alone.

Success is always a team sport.

To your success,

Coach Joe
