Back in late 2014, I met a woman who after speaking with me for 10 minutes told me she knew I was capable of having “whale experiences.” Little did she know how much I needed to hear that at that time.
In early January of this year I was really thinking about this idea of coaching, but I still wasn’t 100% certain that giving up practicing to pursue coaching was the right thing to do. I prayed that God would show me a sign that I was on the right path. I asked to see two things, a blue jay and a whale. I had even told my mom about the two things and why I chose them.
As I have been struggling the past few months I kind of lost sight of my goals and those two signs I was waiting for.
Yesterday I spent the entire day with my mom for her birthday. Before we left we were in the kitchen talking, and my brother who knew none of this said, “look a blue jay!” I didn’t get up in time to see it, but my mom did. I immediately reminded her that that was one of the signs I had asked for.
Later that day her and I were at Kirklands, and as we were walking through the store I happened to look down just as we were passing a carved wooden whale. I couldn’t even believe it!
I am on the right path. It may be slower than others, but it’s my path and it will happen in my time.
For the past few years many of you know I have been soul searching trying to figure out my purpose.I knew my passion was personal development, and inspiring and motivating others. What I didn’t know was what purpose those passions would serve.
The coaching opportunity had been presented to me numerous times over the last four years, but I never looked into it because I was so focused on what I thought I was supposed to be doing…using my law degree.
If even one time I had taken a few minutes to let someone explain the opportunity, and why they thought it was a good fit for me I would be in a very different place right now. In fact, I would currently be on a cruise in Jamaica! But I didn’t do that. I ruled it out without knowing anything about it.
Thankfully, I took the time this past January to learn a little more, and immediately said YES! Wouldn’t you know if two of the things that make me happ, and that I was already doing just happened to be two of the three vital behaviors of a coach!
My goal is to build a life that I don’t need a vacation from. To become so financially secure that I forget it is payday.
However, my big picture dream is to impact 100,000 lives in my lifetime. To educate, empower, and encourage 100,000 people to go from a life of settling to a life of success, whether that be physically, emotionally, financially, or all three; and finally lead them to a life of significance as they lead others from a life settling to success.
I can’t build this dream by myself. If you want to go from a life of settling, of wondering if this is all there is to a life of success and significance then comment below with “Team Success to Significance” to learn more!
I just finished my absolute favorite workout…Total Body Cardio Fix. This was the first Beachbody video that I ever tried, and this was just this past January. I remember that I wheezed through the entire thing as I was still getting over a sinus infection. Since I hadn’t worked out in probably about three or four months I had to do the modified version of the exercises, but I finished all 30 minutes of it. After that one workout I was hooked. Not only did I purchase the full program, I decided to become a coach.
Knowing that I had nearly 100 pounds to lose, I knew that if I could finish this workout overweight and sick that anyone could do it. Although I can’t necessarily say that I have lost any weight yet (I struggle with nutrition and this area will always be a work in progress for me) I can tell you that the program works. How? Because each subsequent week that I do each video I am stronger, able to complete more reps, using heavier weights, and no longer have to do the modified versions of the exercises! This is proof that all you have to do is show up daily and push play.
Do you have 30 minutes to devote entirely to yourself for 21 days? Do you want to tone up for the summer? Do you want to have a sense of accomplishment each day? Do you want to inspire others in your life to get healthy? Do you want to feel better and have more energy?
If you answered yes to any of those questions then I invite you to join my 21 Day Fix challenge group. The group will be starting Monday March 28! Like, comment or send me a private message if you would like to know more! The only thing you have to lose is your excuses!
The fact of the matter is not everyone will like you. It doesn’t even matter how good of a person you are. If someone doesn’t celebrate the person you are, move on without them. You don’t have to play games to get people to like you. Be you, authentically you!
My truth today is that I am good at a lot of things, but dating has never been one of them. I know that I am impatient, and that is a character flaw that I am always trying to work on. Sometimes I wonder if I just have completely unrealistic expectations when it comes to dating. I would like to believe that everyone deserves someone who will make them a priority, someone who will make them feel special, someone who understands the value and meaning of little things, and someone who wants to spend time with them.
