It’s Much More Than A “Plastic Trophy”

0

Who you are and what you do blows people away.

Most people can’t believe how hard you are willing to work. They can’t believe what you are willing to sacrifice to reach your goal.

How many times have you been asked “How much money do you get for doing a bodybuilding contest?” When you tell them you don’t make any money, their eyes dart around in their heads with confusion. It makes no sense to them.

Even lower level competitors, the ones who placed in the middle of the pack in one or two shows before quitting, sometimes question you. “You do all that work for a plastic trophy? I stopped doing that nonsense a long time ago.”

What really hurts is when people very close to us tell us that we’re wasting our time. They’re the last people we’d expect. They hurt us more than they know.

They don’t get you.

They don’t get us.

They don’t understand that what we do is far more important to us than a “plastic trophy.”

This our journey. This is our mission. This is our identity. This is our story of redemption, therapy, calling, sense of meaning, and what we were put on this earth to do all rolled up into one huge ball of PASSION and POWER.

How else could we put ourselves through all of this if it was just for a plastic trophy?

I get you.

Screw them.

Do what you must. Be you.

There are few experiences in your lifetime that match the contest preparation process. You think about your goal dozens of times a day. You see the finished product, your amazing body, in your mind at least that much. Every minute of the day is accounted for and everything you do has meaning. You are forced to live that way. There are no off days.

Everything matters. You’re backed up against an immovable deadline. Your reputation is on the line. You can’t stop talking about your goal even when you notice the person you are talking to has their eyes rolling to the back of their head in boredom. Maybe it’s just because this is the 20th time you told them the same thing. You can’t help it. You’re full of passion. You’re possessed! You come alive when you talk about who you are, what you’re all about, and what you were put on this earth to do. And, because you’ve done so much talking, you’ve put even more pressure on yourself to back up your words. (Oh crap!)

Every single day isn’t perfect during contest preparation. It doesn’t have to be. You gave it your all. You left it all on the floor. When you put your head on your pillow at night, you know you gave it everything you had inside of you. If you didn’t, you bounced back the next morning scratching and clawing.

Damn! Tell me you’re not getting goosebumps all of over your body right now just thinking about your incredible past experiences.

I had my story as to why competing was so important to me in the past. Time and distance have given me a revised version of my story.

We all have our personal stories that fuel us. What’s yours? Why are you willing to do what very few will do to reach your bodybuilding and fitness goal? Why are you so driven? What does that plastic trophy symbolize to you?

Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about all the willpower, focus, energy, and time that you invested into winning your plastic trophy. Not even you. You did what you had to do for your definition of greatness. You did what you had to do for mental and emotional survival. You did what you had to do to be you.

I respect and admire everything you’ve done or continue to do.

And you know what? You’re in good company.

You know those people who question what you do? They are ALL driven toward their own “plastic trophy” with all of their pain and power too.

Their “plastic trophy” is just that Lamborghini that they can’t shut their traps about. That stack of money they constantly hint at. Their business success that they not-so-subtly mention was featured in “Awesome Entrepreneur Monthly.” Their massive online fans and followers. The tremendous faith that they have in their Creator. That diploma they’ve earned and those fancy letters that diploma has allowed them to attach to their name (even when they’re sending an email to their own mother). Those pictures of their kids they can’t stop posting on social media (Guilty!).

They are no better than you.

They are no worse than you.

Never forget that.

Don’t ever let them make you doubt yourself again.

NEVER GIVE THEM YOUR FRIGGIN’ POWER!

We are all just both POWERFUL and FLAWED SOULS doing what we must to get through this crazy journey called “life.”

It doesn’t matter how much money is in our banks accounts.

It doesn’t matter how ripped our abs are.

We are all just driven toward our own “plastic trophy.”

How conscious are you of why you’ve chosen yours?

I want to be your friend or coach who helps you recreate those same amazing feelings of the contest preparation journey toward your entire life. I want you to have everything you want and not settle for just parts of it.

IMAGINE.

Imagine for a moment what it will feel like to consciously create a new, more empowering “plastic trophy.”

You think about your (insert your new, more empowering, all-encompassing MISSION here) dozens of times a day. You see the finished product, (fill in the blank), in your mind at least that much. Every minute of the day is accounted for and everything you do has meaning. You are forced to live that way. There are no off days.

Everything matters. You’re backed up against an immovable deadline. Your reputation is on the line. You can’t stop talking about your goal even when you notice the person you are talking to has their eyes rolling to the back of their head in boredom. Maybe it’s just because this is the 20th time you told them the same thing. You can’t help it. You’re full of passion. You’re possessed! You come alive when you talk about who you are, what you’re all about, and what you were put on this earth to do. And, because you’ve done so much talking, you’ve put even more pressure on yourself to back up your words. (Oh crap!)

Every single day isn’t perfect during (fill in your new, empowering journey here). It doesn’t have to be. You gave it your all. You left in all on the floor. When you put your head on your pillow at night, you know you gave it everything you had inside of you. If you didn’t, you bounced back the next morning scratching and clawing.

Damn! Tell me you’re not getting goosebumps all of over your body right now just thinking about your incredible FUTURE experiences!

Just imagine what that life would look like.

Just imagine what that life would feel like.

Just imagine what that life would be like.

Just imagine, for a moment, what that person living that life every single day would look like in the mirror.

Just imagine.

You can do this.

It’s not too late to be great.

It’s time to go for a new “plastic trophy” that includes your current plastic trophy and a whole lot more.

Set your entire life up like a contest (and win big there too!)

You’re just one totally consuming, awesome “contest prep season” away from the life you really want.

Here’s How One-on-One Coaching With Skip La Cour Will Help Guide To The Level of Success You Want In Life

Clarity. When you have a clear vision of exactly what you want in life and all of the emotional reasons why it is so important to you, you’ll have the best chance to succeed in the most effective, efficient manner and in the shortest period of time. Skip La Cour will get you clear on all the goals you want to achieve in your life and all the emotions you want to experience.

Focus. No matter how well we are already doing in life, the “next level” will take a new way of thinking and take actions that we’re not used to doing. Because of our already busy schedules, it’s easy to lose focus on all of the ambitious goals we’ve set and keep thinking and doing the way we have for a long time. Through your regularly scheduled coaching sessions with Skip, there is absolutely no way possible that you’ll lose sight of what you really want.

Accountability. People are oftentimes more willing to do whatever it takes so they don’t let other people down than they would to not to let themselves down. Coaching on a regular basis can help you use this powerful human tendency to your advantage. How many times in the past have you set ambitious goals or committed to a new set of empowering behaviors only to eventually go back to your old way of thinking and doing? If you have done this in the past, you’re certainly not alone. When you commit to your clearly-defined goals with your coach Skip La Cour, you get an extra layer of accountability because he holds you to executing your plans on a continual basis.

Perspective. Sometimes when we are working hard toward our goals in life, it’s difficult to figure out if we are pushing ourselves too hard or not hard enough. It’s tough to really know if we need to change what we are doing because it simply isn’t working–or if we just need to keep on doing what we are doing for a longer period of time. This is especially true when you want to go to a place that you’ve never been or feel a set of emotions that you’ve never felt before. Coaching with Skip La Cour and continually examining your current situation will give you the perspective you need to succeed. He’ll help you get a level of perspective that you simply can’t get all by yourself. You’ll move toward your goals more freely and unencumbered by all of the second-guessing and “internal chatter” that comes from not having the right perspective.

Execution. The best attitude and the willingness to work hard won’t matter if you don’t create an effective plan-of-attack and follow through with that plan you’ve decided upon. You have to take consistent action. Skip La Cour will help you create a set of effective RESULTS-DRIVEN “daily disciplines” that will jump start your progress and catapult you in the right direction. He’ll apply the right amount of pressure on you to fulfill the promises that you made to yourself. Your regular coaching sessions will keep you focused and put the pressure on you to do whatever it takes to succeed during those times when you’re highly motivated and especially when you’re not.

Momentum. You become what you think about and do most in life. When you live in a powerful and more enthusiastic mindset long enough, that eventually just becomes your normal way of thinking. You’ve actually proven to yourself by your actions that’s the only way you should look at yourself. When you step up and do what you set out to do on a continual basis, you build unstoppable momentum. When all of this starts happening, the things that you once found difficult to get yourself do all of a sudden become much easier. Skip La Cour and the regular coaching you’ll get from him will help you build that powerful momentum.

Results. You want to do everything you can to make your journey toward getting what you want a better, more enjoyable experience along the way. The main purpose of coaching, however, is to help you produce the results in your life that you may have never been able to do on your own. That’s always the bottom line and your coach Skip La Cour will never let you forget that.

Weekly Coaching Keeps You Accountable To The Promises You Make To Yourself

How many times have you got all hot and excited about making significant improvements in your life—but you eventually just stopped thinking about it let alone took action? It became just a distant memory of something you were going to do “someday”. The more references like these that you create in your life, the tougher it will be to ever follow through the way you must.

That’s not going to happen to you with this aggressive and consistent style of coaching. It’s simply not possible.

Make “someday” today by taking action and enrolling in this exclusive weekly one-on-one coaching program. I’ll provide for you the weekly accountability you need to succeed. I’ll drive you and push you–because that’s what we ALL need to get the most out of our talents and abilities. You’ll also be given an assignment each week—and I EXPECT you to follow through.

You aren’t going to let me down, are you? Isn’t it amazing how we’ll do more to not disappoint the people we RESPECT but we don’t always work that hard for ourselves? Now, you can use this “odd” human characteristic that is common in many of us to SERVE YOU by stepping up and putting yourself through this program.

Just think of how much your life will change for the better because you are FORCED to focus on what you really want.

You simply MUST have some “skin in the game” if you are going to succeed at the highest level. The sooner you accept that fact the better off you are going to be earlier in your life. Stop trying to “cheap” your way through. That’s hasn’t worked so far, has it? And, that’s not why you’ve taken the time and energy to read this far down this page.
