Great Men and Great Women - Why Personal Trainers Work*

Monday, 21 September 2015, By Christopher Jovcevski

AT THE OUTBREAK OF WORLD WAR II in the Pacific, Admiral Halsey was given a small, makeshift aircraft carrier task force with orders to halt the Japanese advance and buy precious time for the Allies. Losses were great, resulting in numerous on the spot field promotions. Upon one such occasion, a young man about to be promoted, tried to decline by saying, "It takes a great man to be a wing commander, leading men into battle and possible death. I am not a great man".

After considering the young man's statement for a moment, Admiral Halsey responded, "Son, there are no great men. There are only ordinary men who meet and overcome great challenges".

THE WORLD OF HEALTH AND WELLBEING much the same. The road to success for Admiral Halsey and those who participated with him was paved with dogged determination. Our personal road to success must be built of the same material. Most of us are just ordinary men and women with a variety of challenges to overcome on our way to our health success. But there is always the constant: to receive the great rewards, we must overcome the great challenges.

First, we must realize that challenges and obstacles will block our way. Second, we must make the conscious decision to overcome each and every challenge or obstacle we encounter. Herein lies the key - the willingness to single-mindedly pursue our goals with persistence and tenacity until they are achieved. Regardless of what we pursue, success always lies on the other side of the challenge.

THE CONSISTENT APPLICATION OF EATING AND EXERCISE principles has helped us help thousands overcome their unique challenges and begin a future of health and fitness independence and security. Personal Trainers are designed to help even more people overcome the obstacles and specific challenges blocking their progress. Personal Training is your connection to real and effective application of health success principles in your life. It takes time and considerable effort to realise lasting success, but with the help of the unique Vision experience, anyone can overcome the great challenges and reap the great rewards.
