The Banda Strength Institute 7 Precepts

Merrian-Webster Dictionary
Precept: a command or principle intended especially as a
general rule of action
Jess Banda’s Dictionary
Precept: a principle that spares you from a vile existence
in both the gym, and the real world

Success leaves clues. While I wasn’t the first to make the observation, I have used the adage to help shape my philosophies of how to best achieve success both in the weight room
and out.
Through the years, I have been fortunate to have worked with numerous high caliber athletes, entrepreneurs and Fortune 100 executives. While most people would consider them polar opposites, both groups have more in common than you would assume…they have beaten the odds and achieved the highest levels of success in their chosen fields.
You may be wondering if your success in the gym will carry over into the business world. In his book Often Wrong, Never In Doubt, Donny Deutsch writes on the importance of being in shape, “It’s nice to know that you can kick the ass of anyone at the table. What more do you need to know? That image of yourself extends to all areas of your professional and personal life. Physical well-being says you are disciplined, you are a winner.” Not only does Donny lift weights, but he also sold his advertising agency for $300 million.
The following 7 precepts were compiled from studying my most successful clients and represent common traits they all possessed and have credited to their success. I do not take the 7 Precepts lightly. Before accepting anyone as a client,they must agree to fully subscribe to them at all times. When followed with ferocious passion, they will serve you as well, whatever your endeavors.
The 7 Precepts
1. There is no perfect time. There is only right now. Do it.

2. In a world of compromise, don’t. Compromise leads to mediocrity. Mediocrity leads to stagnation. Stagnation leads to resignation.

3. There are 2 kinds of pain: the pain of discipline, and the pain of regret. Choose.

4. The weak win through argument. The strong win through action.

5. Avoid toxic people. They come in the form of family, co-workers, and friends. They will infect you with their misery and sabotage your efforts. Whether intentional or unintentional, out of fear or jealousy, the results are the same. Avoid them at all cost.

6. Never allow your personal comfort to get in the way of the overall objective.

7. Don’t be a pendejo. Life is too short.
