America’s Backbone

I was watching my favorite show, Shark Tank the other day and I was impressed with a story that I saw.

See if you are not familiar with the show, basically the gist is that each guest is supposed to ask these three, sometimes 4 successful panelist to invest s certain amount of money in their new project.

In this particular one, a farmer asks for $150,000 for a for basically what amounts to a plastic covering for trees.

It may not sound fancy, but those covers supposedly were very effective. However, the panelists chose to make fun of the farmer who was trying to sell it.

This is where it gets interesting. A fourth panelist decides to take a chance because he realizes how hard the work is to do be a farmer and also realizes that the product actually had more thought put into it than everyone initially gave him credit for.

See what happened is that everyone took the fact that the farmer had no prior sales experience as a determining factor in whether they were gonna do business together.

Wrong answer.

Dude nobody comes in as a pro. But what I’m willing to bet is that they had an idea of certain indicators that would spell success for them.

Just like how I can tell with about 99% accuracy who’s going to be successful in my program.

Often times, they are the one’s that make a commitment to be there despite what the forecast says (commitment)

They follow the advice I give to them not only during our sessions but throughout the remainder of the 92% of the day that I do not directly influence (determination)

They are generally concerned with their health and will pay for better quality over a quantity of garbage (Sensibility)

Most importantly, like this farmer, they know how to be a success elsewhere.

Do you have potential in our program?

I hate to break it to you chico, but I’ve been at this a long time. And I have not seen anyone last more than a month that didn’t possess those above traits.

So hey not everyone is destined to achieve greatness.

Hell some of you won’t even make it this far in the email.

But for those of you that have, you are probably one of the few that would succeed in my program therefore I need you to click here: http://generalfitnessprogram.com/pages/about-us
