Episode 1 of The ‘Untitled Show': How To Overcome The Odds

Meet Richard.

Richard has been training at Enterprise Fitness for quite a while now, and he’s an absolute gun in the gym.

As a student in the acting industry, he has raised some great questions on:

  • The importance to have your own style
  • How to be confident in a world where people will judge and scrutinise you,
  • What to do when doubt creeps in and you start to doubt and question yourself.
  • How does one go about building up their one unique profile in a world where originalist is hard to come by?
  • Where do you draw the line between looking up to someone as a role model, and unconsciously trying to become an exact carbon copy of that person, at the risk of losing your own identity?

 In this first episode of my ‘Untitled Show’, I will be delving deep into these topics, and share my thoughts about overcoming the odds when everything (or everyone) seems to be standing in your way.

One more thing…

Social Media and Its Influence

People are often trapped by the boundary conditions of their thinking and it’s societal norms that often validate and concrete those boundary conditions.

For centuries the Church gave power to the Crown and the Crown to the Church. In the modern era, it’s now the State (government) giving power to the media and the media back the government.

However, we kinda threw away that system with the invent of Social Media. Applying the understanding of Universal Laws; specifically, The Law of The One and the Many; the power is either in ‘The One’ or ‘The Many’.

The traditional ‘Media’ was “The One”. 20 years ago, if you were on the news, you were basically famous (maybe not famous-famous but you know what I mean).

Nowadays, the media is fractionated in the many. The power is dispersed amongst billions of users creating their individual media experience.

So as a result; less people care about one thing and more people are actively involved in many things.

So today; instead of “The Church” creating and “The Crown” enforcing idealisms upon us, we create and enforce them upon ourselves with the media and boundaries conditions we create.

Social Media Influence Marketing Business Personal Training Online

To paraphrase a famous writer whose name has escaped me;
Imprison their bodies, there will be rebellion.
Imprison their mind; they’ll never know.

One thing is for sure, the world has changed. From Media, to social, to currency.

Protect your mind and the idealisms you subject yourself to. Be aware of ‘shoulds’, ‘musts’ and ‘have to’s’.

Catch yourself and move towards, ‘want to’, ‘choose to’ and ‘love to’.

Because I trust Reece (and every single one of my team members) to have the initiative to work hard and improve.

If you want to lead, you have to do it from the front. Support your staff members as much as you expect them to support you. Be willing to do the things you expect them to do. But don’t ask them to do those that you aren’t willing to do yourself.

There’s nothing wrong with working in big organizations (IBO) at the start of your career – in fact it’s a great start. But very few move on to become independent business owners (IBO), because it requires a truck load of planning and experimenting (and failing!).

Take it from someone who’s gone through the process 7 times.
