The question seems to pop up a lot these days and I wanted to share a little more...
The question of.... HOW do you stay motivated to do what you do for sooooooo many years?
You see, I wasn't always the way I am today and in another year, I won't be the person I am today. 5 years ago, after having my first son, I needed HELP in the confidence and motivation department so I sought out and found Beachbody. I was WEAK! I didn't give myself enough credit! I was doing the SAME SH&T over and over again with no sense of growth, change or accomplishment. SURE, I did a race here and there or I did a workout and felt good but it never stayed with me for longer than that week. It wasn't until I started sharing my own day to day struggles, accomplishments and DESIRE to help others that my life completely changed for the better.
Beachbody brought me fitness, a super nutritional shake that gave me energy & CURED my IBS, an AMAZING virtual network of friends and family, a TEAM, tips, tools, ideas to improve my life AND best of alllllll, it gave me ways to GROW as a person. It gave me FAITH in ME! It gave me a way to help others through my own personal experiences.
Because of this little coaching biz, I was able to set goals, get fit, retire from my corporate job and help others do the same. I was able to HELP so many people, local and afar, to become the best that they can be. I give them the same tools that Beachbody has given me simply by SHARING my day to day life. I take selfies because it helps myself stay accountable and it HELPS others see that they can do it too.
I'm just a regular girl that gets frustrated, suffers from anxiety, loses her cool and simply does NOT have it figured out BUT I push every day because I believe that if I CAN, others can do. I BELIEVE that my ridiculous and *annoying* sweaty selfie IS helping someone laugh, cry, push harder or even get the little boost they need to just reach out. I believe it is giving someone COURAGE to change! #truth
I am still on this journey and have no intentions of backing down because my belief is way too STRONG to just give up. I won't give up on myself just like YOU can NOT give up on yourself.
If you are at a point where I was 5 years ago and you need "something" to get you going... "something" to motivate you to be better and to do just a little more, maybe you should take a leap on something you know nothing about like I did. You WILL learn and you WILL grow.
Stop questioning it and coming up with all the reasons you can't because TRUST ME, I KNOW the excuses, I KNOW the verses, I KNOW the thoughts you're putting into your head--- I've done them ALL too. Just drop the guard and TRY IT! You have NOTHING to lose.
Learn and GROW along the way... STOP being stagnant with your life. MAKE an IMPACT NOW! Your time is NOW!
