It's lonely out there in the business world, isn't it? Especially when you're an online fitness coach.
You're putting in the work.
Many of you have your day job training people at the gym you work at.
Then, you run home to work on your online business.
Responding to messages from current and potential clients.
Building out customized programs for existing clients.
Posting valuable content on your social media.
These long days and short nights can be grueling.
I've seen countless personal trainers chase after the glitz and glamour of scaling their online empire to six figures.
Here's the harsh reality:
Many of them don't make it.
It's not because they didn't work hard enough.
No, it's not because they didn't have the talent.
Or passion (they had more than enough of it).
So then, what was it exactly? Why did they come up short and give up on their dream?
Yes, my friends. Going it alone has proven to be one of the most detrimental things you can do to build a successful online fitness coaching business.
Because it's easy to want to give up when no one is supporting you through the tough times. Those 12-hour days and the long list of rejections cripple our spirits when we feel like no one cares if we win.
On the flip side, when you're performing well and landing new high-ticket clients, you want someone to celebrate with you.
We all want to be acknowledged.
To be seen and supported.
Lifted up when we are down with our insecurities rearing their ugly faces.
Encouraged when we're being successful and achieving tremendous results.
The bottom line is we all need at least one cheerleader in our corner.
It's a basic human need.
“A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.”
― Seth Godin
You need to find your tribe. People who are going through similar struggles. Folks who can relate to you and want to support you.
People who will cheer for you when you're doing well.
But, still encourage you when things aren't sunshine and rainbows.
It's time you find yourself a flourishing community to join.
Why is this so crucial?
Check this out:
In the early days of mankind, we hunted in groups.
Because the last thing you wanted to have to happen when you came across a sabertooth tiger was to be alone.
See what I mean?
There's strength in numbers.
So find your people.
Grab your spears.
And hunt together.
It'll increase the chances of survival for all of you.
Happy hunting, my friends.
