People ask me about Killer B Combat Sports Academy programs all the time. They tell me that they really want to train and list all the reasons why. I get that you know what you don’t like about your current state of being. I get that you have this idea in your head that you want to train. BUT 9 out of 10 times people don’t come try us out, join, or even get close to actually doing anything different.
I tend to hit people head on once I start hearing excuses. I am not trying to be a mean about it, but I may come off as that from time to time. In reality, I care that people get outside of their comfort zones and do the things they dream of. Am I really being mean? Not really, I am just not letting you off the hook. You have the desire and you made the statements, but will you take action?
You want to sell me on the idea that you don’t have time to train. We all have hrs of wasted time each week doing things that lead to our current state which we are not happy about. OK, fine… maybe you don’t have time in your current schedule. This is why we have 5:45 and 6 am sessions. Get up a little earlier! It sounds so hard but is really not. Try it for a week and see how easy it is once you get on a new schedule.
You can’t afford it? You can go out to dinner once a month less, drink 1 drink less a week, and stop buying $5 coffee, brown bag lunch a day a week…. There is so much waste in our budgets that we can convert into training fees. We are super reasonably priced for the massive value we provide.
You want to get in better shape 1st? I hate this one the most of all. You want to get in shape before you get in better shape? You have failed for years to get anywhere but you magically want me to believe it is going to happen now and you will be walking in lean and mean ready to go… No, you want me to leave you alone so you can pretend you are one day going to be ready.
If you ask me about training, you most likely really are interested in the idea of it. The question is not how hard is it going to be, how much is it going to cost, or do you have the time… the real question is do you have it in you to stop pretending and actually do something that will get you out of your rut and onto a greater path?
We all have ideas about who we think we are, who we think we can be. These ideas are all fictions we create to live with ourselves. We are what we can do right now. What we have done before is in the past and the future is waiting. It is the choices and challenges right now that define us. Killer B will never hold you to yesterdays standards. We will never wait for a future that will never come. It is all about today and what you are doing with it to achieve those goals we agreed to tackle when you made the commitment to finally get over your excuses and start training.
Stop judging, stop making excuses, and stop trying to sell me or yourself these fictions you keep throwing around. It’s time to make a change and we are here to be your platform, program, and partner in this change.
I say all of this because not only do I deal with it as a business owner, I have been there myself. So many times I have the idea that I want to do something but I allow myself to fabricate a long list of reasons why instead of figuring out how to get it started. It is part of the human condition. I am not perfect. Sometimes I overcome and other times I never get going. BUT, I get going more than I don’t and I always keep in mind that I have a community that I have to answer to.
