I don’t perceive I’ve ‘made’ it but I’m making a living out of something I enjoy and that’s pretty sweet to say you NEVER feel like you’re doing a days work.
Don’t BS people. Be honest and loyal and they will be.
Be a professional and people will treat you that way.
YOU do not know it all, no one does.
Read, read and read some more, process, process and figure it out for yourself based on what you learnt.
Don’t copy other trainers, take what you learn and use it but DON’T write it off as your own.
Don’t pretend you’re something you’re not. People won’t trust you until they know who you genuinely are.
Train as many people as you possibly can. You’ll get paid toffee when you first start out so it’s a good way to make money and learn in the process.
Listen! There are tonnes of people out there with loads of knowledge. Ask the right questions and they’ll give you some good answers.
Invest in education. What it will cost you provided you learn you WILL make back if you apply what you learned.
Set up your own set of ethics and rules and stick by them.
Don’t let your ego or pride get in the way of picking someone’s brain that works alongside you.
Train yourself… you’ll learn so much. If you want to know more about a sport, play it or watch it or both. If you want to know more about a training method try it!
Look after your appearance.
Be professional and courteous at all times.
WALK THE WALK!
Am sure I could think of loads more but it gives you an idea…
