Ronnie Coleman is an 8-time Mr. Olympia. Winning Mr. Olympia in bodybuilding is the equivalent of winning the Super Bowl or the NBA Finals: it is by far the biggest bodybuilding competition in existence. Ronnie Coleman is one of the greatest bodybuilders ever, but we can also learn a lot about making money online from him.
I like to workout, but I definitely don’t consider myself a bodybuilder. One look at me would prove that.
However, I do have a few Ronnie Coleman videos because they are funny, and they are impressive to watch. They’re funny because of his one-liners and they’re impressive because it’s a glimpse into how he trains to stay on top of his competition.
What Ronnie Coleman Can Teach You About Making Money Online
So how does this relate to making money online? Well, there are several ways which I’ll explain.
In the video, it follows Ronnie through his daily routine, which is:
- 6am: 1 hour of cardio
- 7am: the same breakfast every day
- 8-11am: 3 hours of intense weightlifting
- 11am-7pm: 8 hours of being a police officer
- 8pm: another hour of cardio
There is a lot we can learn from this…
First of all, what he is doing obviously works. He has figured this out from years experience.
Second, he grinds through the activities that bring him the results EVERYDAY, no matter what. Notice the one hour of cardio in the morning AND evening. That is drudgery to 99% of people, but it is obviously what it takes to stay on top. Just think about how much better you’d be doing online if you dedicated two straight hours every day to link building or some other high value activity.
The third thing I noticed is that he has a full time job, while consistently winning Mr. Olympia year after year. He says on the video that the only reason he keeps the job as a police officer is because he loves it– he definitely doesn’t need the money. But, the point is that he is able to accomplish more than most of his competition while holding down a full time job. Most pro bodybuilders do not have day jobs.
An Excellent Quote on the Secret to Success
Probably the best one-liner he has on the video is this: “Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder, but don’t nobody want to lift any heavy-ass weights.”
This illustrates very clearly the secret to success in anything, ESPECIALLY making money online… everyone obviously wants to make a ton of money online, but no one wants to do the work necessary to make that money.
