The Pivot...

Last night Megan and I were watching The Voice.

They were going through eliminations to cut the group to the final four. 

As the finalist stood on stage getting some advice from the coaches if tonight was their last night Adam Levine said something so subtle and so strong. 

I'm paraphrasing here...

"Don't treat this as the end, treat it as just the beginning. Pivot. Most of us (the coaches) who became who we are today got here because of several pivots in our life. It's just a pivot."

So yes, I'm weird like that and as I'm watching TV at night I think of how I can turn something like that into a lesson for our clients and readers. 

But think about it for a second. 

It's those that use The Voice as a stepping stone to go on to do bigger and better things that are truly successful. 

They pivot. 

It's not meant to be a journey that just ends after the show stops airing. 

A pivot in basketball is where the player plants their foot and instead of going in that direction they spin around and find a better shot (opportunity). 

Throughout your journey of a healthier and improved you think of the pivot. 

We know success is never a straight line. 

The journey you're on is going to be filled with dozens if not hundreds of pivots. 

There will be things that are just the stepping stone to bigger and better things. 

There will be times when you feel off track, just pivot, adjust, and move on. 

In basketball very rarely does the player run right down the court and score the basket. 

Very rarely do participants of The Voice become top-notch rock stars right away. 

In both situations, it's a series of adjustments, pivots, that allow them to finally score big. 

Fitness is the same way. 

Keep at it. 

Know that you'll always be needing to pivot. 

1% Better. 

Dedicated to Your Success,
