So, this is a little different from what I usually write but please hear me out because the title does say a lot of what is going to be involved in this article.
There are two types of people in the world, there are leaders and then there are followers. We have all started as followers, we all had someone that we looked up too, regardless if they were a parent, or maybe someone on the internet like a popstar but you had someone that you wanted to be like.
You loved their mannerisms, or the way they spoke in interview, or maybe just the simple way they made wearing a tank top and shorts look cool. I don’t know, this is within your brain not mine. But in normal human behaviour you had someone to look up too. Now here I the difference, when do you get to that point where you don’t need to look at them anymore, when you look at yourself and think ‘I’m a pretty decent dude/lass.’ When does that ‘spark’ like moment go off in you and you decide that you are going to be your own leader and you’ll see what people begin to look at you, follow you, and want to be more like you.

It is usually when you take ownership of your life. Now you’re probably thinking this doesn’t have much to do with fitness, but it does actually. When so many people come to me for training help, they are a follower. They want to look like me (or Zac Efron, I’m not judging) and have asked for help. You’ll see if you watch the majority of my following that has been with me for a long time, they become leaders in their own selves by the end of the programs.
It is something that leaders do though, I am a leader in my own life in a way that I want to help people get the bodies of their dreams, but I also want them to be able to keep that for themselves because maybe one day they don’t need me around anymore and a lot of money hungry online PT’s may be screaming at the screen right now telling me to stop talking but at the end of the day, that is what I want. That’s my leadership, to take people from step one, push them as far as they can go and then hope that I have taught them enough so that if I wasn’t around anymore, they’d be able to do it themselves.
Becoming a leader in your own life isn’t as hard as you may think it is. Getting up in the morning to make sure you get that workout in is leadership. Being polite and kind in social situations is leadership and there is so much more. Some people are born to be big leaders, some are meant to be leaders of their own world but it doesn’t matter, as long as you are happy with the leadership you are bringing or you are allowing into your life.
