Ep28_Mike_GoncalvesWhy are New Year’s Resolutions overrated? Now I know January 1st is when everyone starts making New Years Resolutions, but let’s be real. How many of you have actually stuck to your resolutions? Well, this episode’s guest has insights on how to tackle on 2016!

Mike Goncalves is the founder of The Wellness Bucket, which is concentrated on helping you create more health and happiness in your life, so that you may finally start to feel, look, and live your best.

 

WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE TO SOMEONE STARTING OUT IN FITNESS?

One of the problems people struggled with when staying consistent originated from coming out of the gate too fast.

That’s one of the big reasons why people fall off the chart after two weeks into their New Year’s Resolution.

They go from really not doing anything, to going 60 miles per hour.

Here are my suggestions…

Don’t come out so aggressive. Have a simple workout plan that you know you can follow.

Have an accountability structure, whether it may be a buddy that you work out with, a running group that meets a couple times a week, etc.

DESCRIBE THE WELLNESS BUCKET

An online community that empowers people through health and wellness to live their best lives, whether that’s in entrepreneurship, careers in business, finance, or relationships.

WHAT WAS ONE STRUGGLE YOU HAD DURING YOUR FIRST ONLINE BUSINESS?

Coming from a brick and mortar, I didn’t know anything about online.

My biggest challenge was how to develop a rapport from people that you’ve never even met.

Also, how do you stand out online in a sea full of “professionals.”

GREAT SUCCESS

We do a 30-day wellness challenge every year.

Its 30 days a 30 different wellness challenge, such as eating 3 salads, doing 100 burpees, taking a cold shower, etc.

It’s great to see different parts of the world take part in this challenge.

A notable one was when the French food company, Sodexo, implemented the 30-day challenge throughout the company for everyone in their business to follow.

SUPERPOWER

I’d say my superpower is the desire to genuinely help people and make a difference in someone’s life.

KRYPTONITE

Not being able to say no is a struggle of mine.

I want to help everyone.

IF YOU CAN HAVE ANY SUPERPOWER…

I’d love to go back in time to thank mentors that I’ve had.

For example, I love Jim Rohn and would love to go back in time and tell him he’s awesome and thank him for all the work he’s done throughout the years and how much it has affected me.
