There are some words out there that kind of stand for itself. Normally these words don’t need a sentence to go along with them. They are simply one-word catch phrases that mean something to you.

The word that stands out to me recently is courage.

To me courage means to grab your ballsack (only if you’re a man) and get outside of your comfort zone to do something you don’t want to do. You know by doing so will help you in the long run. You may suck or feel like an idiot after doing so but that’s the only way to grow. Growing by our failures.

Yesterday at the gym I had the courage to talk to a pretty lady at the gym. She’s a trainer for the gym and I’ve always thought she was an attractive one. Since I’m an uncertified nutritionist for a company called FoodFuels Weight Loss I thought to mention to her that this is targeted towards her clients.

I had that slight thought in my head, “Nah, I don’t need to tell her. What’s the point?”

That silly thought of mine. I believe the 3-second rule is a solid rule of thumb. If you think about something then just do it on the spot. After those 3 seconds then you’re just overthinking now and putting heated pressure on yourself.

Approaching to her was only for the good. I wasn’t hitting on her. I was just giving her advice that this diet is a great plus for her clients if they are really trying to see results. And a great reason to sell at premium price.

She asked me when we were in the middle of the discussion if she wanted her to refer business my way. Of course I could of said yes but I was helping her out. Giving her value.

I said, “No, it’s okay. I’m just looking to help you grow your business.”

It’s funny how business works out but in the long haul. I’d probably end up getting more business by letting her keep that business.

I’m a realtor so maybe she will refer clients to me to buy a house or sell a home. Maybe she is so busy to coaching clients that she refers FoodFuels business my way. There’s always a way that business will loop back around to me.

Isn’t it funny how I was so damn scared to just help her out? Why do human beings get so scared about that? Because she’s an attractive lady I have to be scared to approach to her? Like a lion that may jump out at me? Ridiculous how scared human beings are to approaching to people. At the end of the day they are just people like you and me.
