Why does a bald guy wear a swim cap?

Why does  a bald guy wear a swim cap?

Seriously, if your bald, why would you need a swim cap? It’s not like you would be getting your hair wet right?

The slick cap would easily be replaced by the baldness to provide the sleek head of a swimmer.

Well what if I told you the reason was for something totally different.  Something you may not be expecting, or thinking of…

I want to tell you why a bald guy actually does wear a swim cap and does it on a regular basis.  Okay so I’m the bald guy and I want to share with you why I wear a swim cap almost every time I swim.

The reason is not because I love swim caps. I actually don’t like them because their hard to get on and it makes a weird SLOSHING sound with the water against the cap and the water that does get into the cap.

It definitely is not to keep my golden locks dry, and I don’t even do it to gain speed. I wear the swim cap because during triathlon races, you have to wear a swim cap.  They use it to spot swimmers in the water mainly.

SO it’s mostly just for safety that we wear them on the actual day of the race. Why then would I wear the cap almost every time I swim? Well the answer is that I want to win the race right?

Not exactly…

Of course I want to get the very best time every time I compete! However, winning or getting the best time is only a part of the entire equation. Before we can even think about that we haveto be able to complete the entire race. Just like in business we have to be able to actually do the basics before we can focus on becoming the TOP EARNER or Company Superstar.

So you can guess what comes as the first event right? Yep, the swim!  SO, instead of thinking and focusing

on winning the entire race, Or Even thinking about any other portion of the race. I broke it down into the 3 events that make up the whole race.  Since the swim is first and it was an Open Water swim, which means its not in a pool with lanes.

I figured that if I trained for the distance in a pool I would be fine right?

Well not exactly, and the reason that isn’t exactly right will bring us to the REAL reason that I wear a swim cap.

Even when I do laps in a pool! You see it wasn’t the distance that was the concern when in the water.

It was simply COMFORT! If you become used to one thing then all of a sudden you havea whole NEW set of conditions…

Well your going to uncomfortable if your anything at all like I am.

SO one of the biggest differences was the fact that I had never worn the swim cap in practice. This caused me to hear differently, the feel of my googles was weird, and even how the water was splashing against my head was different when I was wearing the cap.

WOW, how could such a minor thing be such a game changer? Well simply being uncomfortablemy body started to use more energy! Think about it.. Do you ever notice when your uncomfortable how much energy it takes away from you?

When your comfortable though, it’s like you can go and go and go! It’s crazy right? The simplicity of being comfortable in what we are doing is POWERFUL! SO, I wear a cap because I wanted to be comfortable wearing one. Now you may be thinking to yourself,

Bert that was a great story!

Or you maybe thinking why the heck did YOU SHARE this with me today?

Mainly because it seemed to be a great lesson for business as well.

I hear from so many people that aren’t “wearing a swim cap”

Let me give you an example… I talked to a client a few weeks ago, and they asked about getting better with talking to people about their opportunity so they can build a team. One way that I am positive can help,is to talk with people on a regular basis. DAILY would be the VERY BEST! When I recommended tothis client that they utilize a simple service that would allow them to speak to people daily, they replied with,  “I don’t want to do that”… The crazy part is that theyweren’t against using the service. They simply didn’t want to get on the telephone because doing so was uncomfortable.

Well how else can we get comfortable? We have to wear the swim cap. We have to do it until it becomes comfortable. IF you can do that, then YOU CAN DO ANYTHING! Wearing the swim cap wasn’tcomfortable at first, Now it’s uncomfortable to not wear it!


We can adopt small efforts in our business that will YEILD MASSIVE RESULTS, if we are willing to simply GET COMFORTABLE. So how did I take this lesson into my business? More IMPORTANTLY


Well the first thing is to say YES I can learn to Get Comfortable too. That seems pretty simple right?

If you can say YES

I will Learn To GET COMFORTABLE, Then you are already half way there!

SO now let’s take the next step into becoming comfortable growing your business. Commit to yourself that you will learn!
