I saw the wolf of wall street last night and it was awesome.
Possibly one of the best films I’ve ever seen.
There were lots of things that happened which provoked thought.
I’m not going to tell you what happens in the film; but one part really hit home with me and how it can be related to everyday life and how it can be applied to training and nutrition..
Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) is the main character and is the CEO of a stock broker company.
He was conscious that the men he had working for him did not have the skill set he did; they couldn’t sell stocks like him.
He didn’t try and teach them what he knew;
instead he provided them with a powerful tool (a sales script) that they could use every time they attempted a sale which transformed the success of the business.
Did they need to know everything he knew? Not at all.
But by providing them with a system; it ensured consistency and accuracy.
I’ve got 2 points here
if you have a specific goal e.g. fat loss; there needs to be a system in place for success.
My top tips for building a system are as follows
1 – Pick your goal
2 – Identify what this requires
3 – Introduce habits slowly
4 – Be consistent
One of my goals in 2014 is to produce “the beginner nutrition blueprint”.
This will provide a system that people can stick to ensure consistency and success along with flexibility.
You don’t need to know the subject inside out to be successful at applying something.
You don’t need to know everything about training and nutrition to be successful with your goal.
Just get started!
