qfit Reaches 22 Countries

One of the pleasures of having created an online digital personal trainer has been to see its use expand around the globe. Today, the gym training programs we created at qfit.tv are being used in 22 countries. We've enabled affordable access to professional workouts, that can be accessed easily via the internet or mobile phone. How cool to be able to go to the gym and see a video of how to do your workout properly and know what you're doing. Let's face it, gyms can be intimidating places and having the ability to do fitness training with confidence really helps with the self-esteem.

Recent countries to join the qfit members include Bahrain, Denmark, Cyprus, India, Qatar and South Africa. Here's the full list of countries that are training with qfit:

The Art of the Quiet Achiever

There are many outcomes and desires we have in life and attaining success in our goals and achievements is one of the measures we use to guide us in determining just how accomplished we are and our life is.

Depending on who you are, your background and your value/belief structure, different areas of your life will be used to indicate success. For some this is money, for others it is to have travelled widely, yet others find great value in seeing a dream realised, while for many it is simply the connection to their family or community. We educate ourselves, make career decisions, follow journeys and embark upon adventures all with the underlying hope that they will succeed.

Life often has a different take on things and can very often play its hand to deliver challenges, obstacles and lessons which impact on our directions. These might change our original intentions and often play an important role in the outcome that is achieved.

The most important part, however, is not the destination but the journey. It is for this very journey we take through life that the notion of achieving our goals and successes with quiet resolve can prove extremely rewarding. To help with the, there are some tenets I've identified that can provide invaluable assistance to success.

Pesky Self-Limiting Beliefs

It was during my twenties that I discovered the importance of identifying self-limiting beliefs. They're those ideas and notions we have which ultimately curtail our ability to succeed. After spending much time and thought on identifying those beliefs that were working for me and those that weren't, I managed to overcome a great many obstacles to achieve some extraordinary success in my life.

Today, many years later, I find myself again taking the time to review my beliefs and recognising those that are self-limiting. Like many people, as I've gotten older I've also become a little settled in my ways. I know the things I like and have worked out those I don't.

This of course is a trap.
