The Body Builder: 5 Ways To Monetize Your Physique

The Body Builder: 5 Ways To Monetize Your Physique

Here are 5 different techniques you can employ to monetize your physique, using real-life examples.

1. Become A Model

Although the modeling industry is dominated by women, there is still a thriving niche for men with the ‘right physique.’ In this niche, your job responsibility would be modelling clothing items, jewelry and other commercial goods for public consumption.

The first step to take is setting up a profile on a modeling and/or body-building platform that outsources body builders to companies who require such services. (Bodybuilders.com is a good place to start.) As your profile increases, your ability to earn increases as well.

    2. Compete In Bodybuilding Contests

    Body building contests are a great way for you to put your name out there in order to garner some publicity, which in turn will boost your earning potential. A good example is the Arnold Schwarzenegger’s rise to fame, from a simple body builder to competing in and wining both the Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia trophies. Competing in these contests paved the way for his career in Hollywood. So why not take the right steps to bulking up with the aim of winning your state’s local body building contest?

    3. Create A Fitness Blog

    A fact most body builders know is that the art of bulking up is always a personal journey, which everybody must experience for his or herself. If you fall into the category of people who have achieved their personal body-building goal, provide some expert tips by creating a personal blog for people to read about your experience. It’s a great way to monetize your body building experience. Make sure the tips you provide speak directly about your experience. This is due to the fact that a generic blog on bodybuilding is not likely to generate much interest. An example of a good personal blog is Strength Trainer, Mike Mahler’s. In his blog, he covers unique training issues, personal diet and bodybuilding techniques, which you can use as inspiration for your personal blog.

    4. Kick-Start A Career As A Personal Trainer

    Having a good physique ultimately means that you have developed healthy eating  and training habits over an extended period of time. As the saying goes; anyone who has spent 10,000 hours working on a craft is a professional. If you have achieved the proverbial 10,000 hours or have met your own personal goals, the next step may be teaching other people.

    To become a personal trainer, some education courses and certification may be required. Also, your interpersonal skills and the ability to teach will play a huge role in determining your success rate in the long run. Simply put, one must put in considerable effort in learning how to become a personal trainer. This effort may end up being lucrative once you start building a loyal client base.

      5. Start Your Own Supplement Company

      Most body builders make use of food and health supplements throughout their careers in the body building industry. If you fall under this category, provide help for future body builders on the right supplements they can use. You’ll be helping others and germinating income.

      There are a couple of ways to do this: you could sell supplements to a a third-party retailer, large corporations, or develop your own line/company. To do this right, you must invest your money and other resources for a lengthy period of time.

      Now that you know these tips, get started! Take the right steps at the turn of the New Year to increase your earning power through something you love: bodybuilding.

      The 10 Essential Habits of Positive People

      The 10 Essential Habits of Positive People

      Are you waiting for life events to turn out the way you want so that you can feel more positive about your life? Do you find yourself having pre-conditions to your sense of well-being, thinking that certain things must happen for you to be happier? Do you think there is no way that your life stresses can make you anything other than “stressed out” and that other people just don’t understand?  If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, you might find yourself lingering in the land of negativity for too long!

      The following are some tips to keep positive no matter what comes your way. This post will help you stop looking for what psychologists call “positivity” in all the wrong places!  Here are the ten essential habits of positive people.

      1. Positive people don’t confuse quitting with letting go.

      Instead of hanging on to ideas, beliefs, and even people that are no longer healthy for them, they trust their judgement to let go of negative forces in their lives.  Especially in terms of relationships, they subscribe to The Relationship Prayer which goes:

       I will grant myself the ability to trust the healthy people in my life … 

      To set limits with, or let go of, the negative ones … 

      And to have the wisdom to know the DIFFERENCE!

       2.  Positive people don’t just have a good day – they make a good day.

      Waiting, hoping and wishing seldom have a place in the vocabulary of positive individuals. Rather, they use strong words that are pro-active and not reactive. Passivity leads to a lack of involvement, while positive people get very involved in constructing their lives. They work to make changes to feel better in tough times rather than wish their feelings away.

      3. For the positive person, the past stays in the past.

      Good and bad memories alike stay where they belong – in the past where they happened. They don’t spend much time pining for the good ol’ days because they are too busy making new memories now. The negative pulls from the past are used not for self-flagellation or unproductive regret, but rather productive regret where they use lessons learned as stepping stones towards a better future.

      4. Show me a positive person and I can show you a grateful person.

      The most positive people are the most grateful people.  They do not focus on the potholes of their lives.  They focus on the pot of gold that awaits them every day, with new smells, sights, feelings and experiences.  They see life as a treasure chest full of wonder.

      5. Rather than being stuck in their limitations, positive people are energized by their possibilities.

      Optimistic people focus on what they can do, not what they can’t do.  They are not fooled to think that there is a perfect solution to every problem, and are confident that there are many solutions and possibilities.  They are not afraid to attempt new solutions to old problems, rather than spin their wheels expecting things to be different this time.  They refuse to be like Charlie Brown expecting that this time Lucy will not pull the football from him!

      6. Positive people do not let their fears interfere with their lives!

      Positive people have observed that those who are defined and pulled back by their fears never really truly live a full life. While proceeding with appropriate caution, they do not let fear keep them from trying new things. They realize that even failures are necessary steps for a successful life. They have confidence that they can get back up when they are knocked down by life events or their own mistakes, due to a strong belief in their personal resilience.

      7. Positive people smile a lot!

      When you feel positive on the inside it is like you are smiling from within, and these smiles are contagious. Furthermore, the more others are with positive people, the more they tend to smile too! They see the lightness in life, and have a sense of humor even when it is about themselves. Positive people have a high degree of self-respect, but refuse to take themselves too seriously!

      8. People who are positive are great communicators.

      They realize that assertive, confident communication is the only way to connect with others in everyday life.  They avoid judgmental, angry interchanges, and do not let someone else’s blow up give them a reason to react in kind. Rather, they express themselves with tact and finesse.  They also refuse to be non-assertive and let people push them around. They refuse to own problems that belong to someone else.

      9. Positive people realize that if you live long enough, there are times for great pain and sadness.

      One of the most common misperceptions about positive people is that to be positive, you must always be happy. This can not be further from the truth. Anyone who has any depth at all is certainly not happy all the time.  Being sad, angry, disappointed are all essential emotions in life. How else would you ever develop empathy for others if you lived a life of denial and shallow emotions? Positive people do not run from the gamut of emotions, and accept that part of the healing process is to allow themselves to experience all types of feelings, not only the happy ones. A positive person always holds the hope that there is light at the end of the darkness.  

      10. Positive person are empowered people – they refuse to blame others and are not victims in life.

      Positive people seek the help and support of others who are supportive and safe.They limit interactions with those who are toxic in any manner, even if it comes to legal action and physical estrangement such as in the case of abuse. They have identified their own basic human rights, and they respect themselves too much to play the part of a victim. There is no place for holding grudges with a positive mindset. Forgiveness helps positive people become better, not bitter.

      How about you?  How many habits of positive people do you personally find in yourself?  If you lack even a few of these 10 essential habits, you might find that the expected treasure at the end of the rainbow was not all that it was cracked up to be. How could it — if you keep on bringing a negative attitude around?

      I wish you well in keeping positive, because as we all know, there is certainly nothing positive about being negative!
