I wanted to share a conversation I was told about recently, between a TF member and his friend.
Let’s call the TF member Greg and his friend Jake.
Greg is a long time member at TF, regularly attending, doing his reviews, following the nutrition plan to the best of his ability. He’s lost a lot of extra weight that he has been carrying around for years and now feels more comfortable in his own skin.
However, he was recently made fun of by his friend Jake as to why he pays “SO MUCH”, when he could pay “£15 a month to attend a regular gym”.
Now Jake does “only pay £15 a month” for his membership, but rarely attends his gym and when he does he half-arses it, (this is probably because he’s only paying £15 a month)….
Jake knows he’s overweight. He know’s he’s unhealthy, but for some reason he still doesn’t see results…. Regardless of his £15 a month gym membership…
However, this convo stuck in Greg’s mind, and bugged him a little.
Greg took the time to look over his finances and decided to contact his financial advisor. After telling his financial advisor the story he replied:
“Your friend can’t believe you pay £150 a month to be in great shape.
I can’t believe your friend is willing to stay fat for £15 a month!”
If you’re ever debating an investment in yourself, inverse the cost and benefit.
“Am I willing to pay £150 a month in order to be in great shape, and too add more healthy years to my life?”
“Am I willing to be out of shape, and unhealthy in exchange for being paid £150 a month?”
Who’s right, Jake or Greg? Let me know your thoughts!
