Here are some interesting statistics:
- Eighty percent (yes, that’s 80%) of folks who join a gym in January quit within five months
- Only half of members go to the gym on a regular basis
- Gym owners assume that 18% of members will not use it consistently
The benefits to regular physical activity are outstanding. A long list of health experts state that regular exercise leads to a happier, healthier life. The Mayo Clinic lists seven reasons why regular exercise is so important:
- Controls weight
- Combats health conditions and diseases
- Improves mood
- Boosts energy
- Promotes better sleep
- Puts the spark back into your sex live
- It is fun and social
So why do the majority of us not exercise regularly? Livestrong.com lists a few reasons: we claim we do not have time, there are competing interests, we have not developed the habit, we find it overwhelming, not motivated, or results are not realized quickly.
Those reasons apply to other areas of our lives that we KNOW we should be doing them, but we are not. This can include anything from avoiding having our teeth cleaned, to addressing business problems, to taking on a home improvement project.
As a business associate recently said, “we find a long list of excuses that keep us from achieving great results.” We miss out on those amazing results because we do not allow ourselves to overcome the reasons, excuses, and obstacles that block our way.
This also applies to not trying or following through with My COO Resources. Our Users consistently tell us that they have found this do-it-yourself interactive, on-line tool to be quite helpful. But some of you are missing out because you are allowing those common obstacles to get in the way to great results.
Do not be the majority. Do not allow common obstacles to get in the way of achieving success.
