3 Tips From a Celebrity Personal Trainer to Boost Your Entrepreneurship

Are you an entrepreneur? If so, you understand the grind of creativity and business all around you. One never knows where inspiration will come from so it’s important to always keep your mind open and your heart willing to learn new things in your life and your business.

One inspiration you will find is with David Kingsbury. David has been a personal trainer for over 12 years, he has worked with mutants, Superheroes and Assassins. He is best known for his work on The Wolverine film, and has worked with dozens of other celebrities including Ryan Reynolds, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence. David has also worked on popular films like X-Men: Days of Future Past, Les Miserables, and Assassins Creed.

Again, inspiration comes in many forms, and for me, it came in the form of talking with David Kingsbury about his entrepreneurial experiences.

Here are three great attributes you should have in order to become successful and reap great rewards in your business:

1. Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff

As an entrepreneur, you probably already know about failure. David suggests failure is simply another starting point. While a lot of us are looking at his success in life right now, what we didn’t see was the struggle it took to get to this point.

A key attribute of success is to keep going. Don’t sweat the small stuff. In other words, don’t allow your mind to become a slave to a stumbling block or a stopping point. One of the major points in your business is how you keep working at it. What I took away from talking with Mr. Kingsbury was how he never quit. He continued to provide the best value he possibly could.

Even if you’re not at the level of other entrepreneurs, don’t sweat it. Keep going. Keep pushing. Each day you finish successfully is another notch in your belt of experience. You will see the fruits of your labor eventually, but you cannot quit because some small thing defeated you today.

“Two rules to follow – #1:Don’t sweat the small stuff. #2:It’s all small stuff.” – Robert Elliot

2. Find Your Confidence

What influences the mind? There’s a ton of brain influencers out there which will cause you to feel depressed in your business. On that note, there are also a lot of great instances where you accomplish awesome things which make you want to strive for more and do better.

A great entrepreneur will understand how to train their mind with confidence. Confidence in your work, your attitude, and your personality will not only share with you, but also with the rest of the world that you’re here to stay.

Find a niche within your business in which you’re great at. Something which will make you stand out as an expert, and go do it. This is why it’s so important to do something you love because when you love it, you’re great at it, which builds confidence in your mind and in your audience as well.

Don’t allow your mind to sabotage your business because of some fear or failure. The greatest way to establish confidence in yourself and your business is to find a mentor who is great at what you want to do and learn from them.

3. Don’t Wait Until Tomorrow

Procrastination is the cause of death for many entrepreneurs. Whether you’re in the middle of your business and are thinking of starting a new project, or you have a great idea for a product or service, the time to start is now.

You will never hear about a successful entrepreneur who waited until tomorrow to start something. You always hear about how they worked consistently on their idea, how they toiled and labored 16 hours a day until they got it right. This is the key to your success. Working consistently and knowing the goal and game plan for your company.

“Tomorrow is a mystical land where 99% of all human productivity, motivation and achievement is stored.”

It’s important to have your mission mapped out somewhere so you can refer back to what you’re trying to accomplish for that week or that day. Create the larger goal of where you want to be in six months and also create weekly goals you can accomplish. This is a great way to keep yourself on track and consistently working on something of value for your business.
