Tip From Richard Simmons
Richard said that one of the tips that really helped him the most is when he sat down and wrote down all of his dreams. He believes that everyone should write down their dreams to help visualize the goals that they have in their head. He said that he had several dreams in his head growing up on a child. He wanted to be a priest and even a gynecologist at one point in his life but he realized that those weren’t right for him. He ended up being a waiter and served celebrities like Ed McMahon and Sidney Poitier. The money that he earned from being a waiter was how he was able to open up “Simmons” and begin teaching exercise classes. So, write down those dreams and do what you have to do to make all of your dreams come true!
