Panic attack

I may be late to the game on this but I listened to a podcast with a guy named Dan Harris, who is a news anchor and author of a book titled 10% Happier.

After a long stint as a combat reporter in Afghanistan, he was covering for someone on a very well-known morning show.

Just as he was about to report the news, he had a legit panic attack, literally on the air. The entire world saw it. 

At first, it was as if his career was over. 

But it turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to him.

The panic attack drove him to seek out answers to why this happened.

This led him to meditation.

Which brought him to create a company that’s helping a ton of people live better lives through meditation. 

My therapist, yes I have a therapist, always tells me that your best days are your worst days.

If this is true…and I believe it is, then we no longer need to panic or freak out when bad stuff happens. 

The Stoics have a line called Amor Fati, which means love your fate.  

This is the attitude in which one sees everything that happens in life, including suffering, as good or at the very least necessary. 

Man, what I would have given to have learned this when I started my business and even when I started life. 

This is an attitude I’ll work hard to teach my kids.

So, whatever shit is hitting your fan right now…

  • Leads Slow
  • Team Members Quitting
  • Going back and forth about renewing a lease
  • Clients terminating their memberships
  • Gossip at your gym
  • Lawsuit
  • Problems with your landlord
  • Checking account dangerously low

Just know that these things are not happening to you, they’re happening for you…

…so you can learn and grow into being a better business owner…and better person. 

Owning a business is the ultimate way to become a better human being, as long as you don’t let it destroy you along the way…which happens. 

But when you arm yourself with an attitude that embraces the bad stuff…as inherently good…you’re on your way.

It’s still a work in progress for me…

The Surge is my flagship marketing course for gym owners that I teach live 2x per year. The goal after the 6 weeks is you have a full-blown marketing system installed into your gym.

2. Inquire about attending my Annual Fitness Business Mastery Seminar on December 3-5. 

Once per year I bring 20 gym owners behind the curtain of my gym for 3 full days to teach you everything…and show you everything…that we do to run one of America’s most successful gyms. 

The goal is you leave the seminar a smarter and more successful gym owner…that knows how to make money…but spends a LOT less time making it.

3. Be a guest at my next LIVE SPF Mastermind Event on November 12-13. 

For each mastermind meeting, I allow 5 non-members to purchase guest passes to our 2-day private workshops. You’ll get to test drive the mastermind, meet the members and then decide for yourself if we’re the right group for you.

4. Become a Private Coaching Client 

Each year I work with a handful of 1-1 clients and have a spot remaining for private client work. This is NOT for newbie gym owners but if you’re cranking out strong six figures and need the leadership coaching to take it to 7 figures this is for you.
