Fitness & Nutrition Expert Arthur Oh Talks About Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurs are driven by the need to succeed and control their destiny. It is no wonder that more than 41% of Gen Z plan to become entrepreneurs.
While there are various motives behind the desire to become entrepreneurs, such as good benefits, pay, and inspiring work, these factors alone do not lead to success. More and more, we learn that entrepreneurial passion is the single most critical factor for the success of any venture.
Arthur Oh is a fitness and nutrition expert and is passionate about fitness. He founded Kaizen Fitness, to help others live happier and healthier lives. Today, Arthur works with hundreds of people online, providing personal training and nutrition advice. In this article, Arthurs shares his insights on the relationship between fitness and entrepreneurship.
- Passion enables you to focus your mind.
Taking into account that 67% of small businesses fail within the first year, you must be able to focus your mind and energy if you hope to succeed. Being passionate about a specific thing enables you to pursue it without the distraction of what could be ‘better opportunities.’ Joshua Spodek, author of Leadership Step by Step, notes that entrepreneurs who focus their passions tend to be more successful than their less passionate peers.
In the same way, fitness goals are similar to entrepreneurial goals. You set goals for yourself and have a clear vision of where you want to be and how you want to look. Arthur encourages others to focus their minds. He says, ‘whatever your goal is, whatever you want to grow in, you must focus.’
- Having consistency
Consistency is a vital ingredient in achieving success in any field. While passion can help you become more goal-oriented, you need to take action and be consistent with it.
Arthur initially struggled with consistency. To overcome this obstacle, he started scheduling every part of his day to minimize distractions. He argues that consistency helps measure success and progress.
- Embracing the right mindset
Thousands of businesses fail even before they start. Similarly, millions struggle to achieve their fitness goals. When figuring out your approach to challenges in life, it can help to learn from the experience of others. Here are the top five lessons from Arthur.
- If you don’t know how then learn.
- Create a plan of what you want to do and how you will get there.
- Stick to your schedule.
- Focus your energy on what is good for you.
- Focus on your why.
