Not to be confused with a head full of excellence

Do you have a Circle of Excellence? Some people call them mastermind groups or brainstorming groups, but this is a little different. This is a small group of 4-6 people that challenge, inspire, encourage, and mainly just make you become better. A group that you can share ideas, successes, failures, problems or whatever you need help with.  Businesses and corporations use these, why aren't you a part of a fitness mastermind? You can achieve much more as a group than you ever could alone. You have heard before, but I am going to say it again. Accountability is an absolute must for achieving the body you want. Your chances of missing a workout, eating junk all day, etc... are going to decrease if you have to answer to someone else. You need to find people that excel where you are lacking. Working on your weaknesses is hard and humbling, but you will be amazed at how fast you progress when you do so. When I wanted to become a faster and overall better runner, I found a group of guys who were excellent runner. They ran me into the ground, offered advice, never accepted excuses, and guess what? I became a much better runner.
 On the downside, you might be a part of a group that drags you the other way. Going out to lunch every day, happy hours at night, etc...  There are people out there willing to help you if you will just ask. I know you know people who are in a similar situation as yourself. Seek them out, form a group, and hold each other accountable. Special note to boot campers. There are already groups like this right now. You want to become part of one? Let me know and I will help you find one or form your own.
