Just before the New Year’s, I wrote a post on The Power of Writing Down Your Goals.
Tom Venuto had another great example that didn’t include Harvard Graduates. In his Blog, he wrote:
“I will come to America, which is the country for me. Once here, I will become the greatest bodybuilder in history.”
“While I am doing this I will learn perfect English and educate myself – but only with those things I need to know. I will get a college degree so I can get a business degree.”
“Simultaneously I will make whatever money possible from bodybuilding and invest it in real estate where I will make the big money.”
“I will go into the movies as an actor, producer and eventually director. By the time I am 30 I will have starred in my first movie and I will be a millionaire.”
“I will collect houses, art and automobiles. I will see the world. Along the way, I will learn to impress people and I will hone my mind to outwit all of them.”
“I will marry a glamorous and intelligent wife. By 32, I will have been invited to the white houseâ€¦”
If you didn’t figure it out yet, this list of achievements belongs to none other than the great American Success Story – Arnold Schwarzenegger.
This was Arnold’s list of goals which he created BEFORE any of these things happenedâ€¦ while he was an unknown body builder in a small town in Austria.
Who the heck is Tom Venuto?
Tom Venuto is none other than Tom Venuto, the author and creator of the 330 page BURN THE FAT, FEED THE MUSCLE e-book, the #1 best-selling ebook in Internet history
I read his eBook over a year ago, and I still use it as a reference.
I’ve been involved in Coaching and running track all my life, but I do have some private clients ranging from Senior Executives to ordinary folks trying to eat right and lose a few pounds. One of them is the reason why I go to the Death Valley Marathon every year.
It took me a few sittings to go through this and was very impressed by the level of detail. And for those who know me personally, I really do have an affinity for details.
I was impressed by the references cited at the end of the eBook, because I have read about 25% of those articles cited. I know Tom isn’t blowing smoke with these claims, as compared to some of the cheesy marketing sites out there.
Tom and I seem to have the same philosophies about training and weight loss with a few different opinions. One is the area of Supplements – in today’s hectic lifestyle and convenience, you can’t get all the nutrients in natural foods without gaining weight from other calories. I wish there was a sushi bar next to track to fuel my body with fresh fish and Omega 3 fatty acids immediately after the workout.
I’ll write a full review on this ebook in a future article.
