Just get running!!!

At Cambridge Hypnotherapy we work with such a diverse array of clients, and we always tailor our work specifically to each individual. If you ever spoke to one of my personal clients, they would confirm just how much I love analogies and metaphors. I love to look at quotes etc and look at how they could be interpreted in relation to our lives. I recently read a quote which I think sums up what we should be doing quite accurately.


“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle, or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you better start running.”


Now i know that we're not necessarily being hunted by prey, but on one level, isn't that exactly what's going on? If you're in business, the moment you wake up you will have people chasing after you. If your competition are already ahead of where you are, they will (or should) be doing everything they possibly can to stay ahead of you. If you are ahead of them, they will (or again should) be doing everything they possibly can to catch you up and take you down.

It really makes no difference wether you are the lion looking to catch your prey, or the gazelle trying to stay away from your predator, the action you need to take is the same. RUN! You need to be getting up and getting to work straight away. One of the questions we get asked is exactly how is this done? Well, there are many things you can do:

  • Wake up an hour earlier

  • Plan your day and week in advance

  • Prioritise the jobs needed to be focused on (TOT 90)

  • Work on your own mindset

  • Hit the gym

  • Eat clean

  • Spend time with your loved ones to clear your mind

  • Plus many many more......

If you commit to doing just a few of these, you have a hugely increased chance of either staying ahead, or catching up with those in front of you,

If you need some help, which I think we all do from time to time, then contact us thorugh the contact form on this site, or call us on 01223 720 120 and we'll be more than happy to show you how easy, and quick it can be, to achieve your goals.
