Owning and learning from dogs will improve your game no matter WHAT business / occupation you're in!
There aint no snooze button on a dog. One thing the wealthy do is get up early in the morning. You want to stand head and shoulders above your peers? Get up early and exercise.
I always had it in my mind that I would start running again when I got a dog ... well not only does my dog Mowgli get me out of bed to exercise, but he pushes me. When I don't want to he doesn't care. Winners push through the wall stopping them ... the average quit when the see that same wall
If you've ever seen a dog playing or running figure 8's in the back yard then you know what I'm talking about. If you work hard *then * you get to play hard. One thing that I've learned from Cesar Millan is that dogs have to work/exercise & be disciplined/learn PRIOR to the fun stuff. If all you ever do is play with your dog and love your dog then the dog will be in charge of you and not the other way around. In life it's the same. If all you do is play and you neglect the hard work and discipline, then you'll go through life never being the Alpha Dog and pack leader you were always meant to be.
If you're getting up early and exercising it's proven that it will boost your confidence. Confidence is necessary in every occupation no matter if you're a janitor or a CEO. If you want to get a head, you've got to be sold on yourself. Not to mention they're always ready to greet you at the end of the day to let you know that regardless of what happens or who says you can't ... your furry buddy knows you can.
Ever heard the term, "workin like a dog" ? Well that's what you need to do to dominate. No matter what you do in life, if you're not dominating then you'll always be working towards making someone else's dream come true that is dominating. If you want to get ahead in life, you've got to stop waiting for the blessing, stop waiting for the opportunity, stop waiting to win the lottery. You don't want to be "lazy as a dog" you want to "work like a dog" and dominate your profession.
