Yesterday, the cashier at the supermarket asked me what I did for my job as I looked fit & healthy (and clearly had a belt full of lean protein & clean foods)
This is how the conversation continued after I said I was a PT.
Man: I don't like the gym. I've not been for so long.
Is it true that most PTs charge £40per hour?
Me: Self employed Personal trainers can charge what they believe their session is worth. For example, I charge more than £40.
Man: Whatttt.!?? But don't you think that is too expensive?
Me: No. I don't.
Man: I'm in the wrong job.... I'm going to quit & be a PT.
Me: But you said you don't like the Gym!
Why would you spend your time doing a job that you don't like..? You have to find what you love & what makes your heart & head happy.
I mean, what is your passion? What would you want to do?
Man: I want to own a cafe. To have a breakfast bar and serve healthy takeaways.
Me: Then keep working towards that goal. Wake up every morning & think of it. Tell people around you that's what you want & you will subconsciously follow a path that will lead you towards it.... 🙏🏼
After paying for my shopping, he genuinely thanked me & I felt that his eyes & his mind had been opened to see a bigger world than the one he currently lived in.
Keep dreaming, Keep pushing & Keep growing!!!
