EP052: 15 Principles To Overcome Your Biggest Obstacles And Turn Theory Into Action

At many points in our lives we face resistance and obstacles. Some smaller than others. How we deal with these obstacles determines not only our success, but also the quality of our life.

I’ve coached thousands of clients to physical transformations and hundreds of gym owners to growing their gyms and creating a sustainable, profitable, and perennial business; and the key to each ones success were the principles I’m going to share with you today.

Overcoming obstacles breaks down into how we perceive things, how we act in the face of the obstacle, what we learn in defeat and failure and how we use that to grow.

Learn and master these principles and put them into action and your obstacles will become the stepping stones to growth and achieving your goals.
