A Challenge To Live Your Most Incredible Life

By | Behavior Change, Mindset, Transformations, Uncategorized

BelieveFor those who know me better, you might have noticed a shift in what I have been talking about over the past 6-12 months. The first years as a trainer, blogger and speaker, my topics were more along the lines of “10 different ways to tone your butt,” or “5 foods that burn fat.”

Great content…

But over the past year I have shifted to less of that (although it is certainly valuable and I will continue to share), to more about challenging you to live your most incredible life, and to do things that you have wanted to do, but don’t because of fear.

This shift has occurred because I have a desire to grow, but has accelerated because of the people I now surround and associate with on a regular basis. When I travel all over North America, I am meeting with some of the greatest thought leaders in the world, who have goals and dreams that I can hardly comprehend and who have already done mind boggling things. The more time I spend with them, the more I find myself setting bigger goals, and building up my levels of confidence and abundance.

You might have noticed the following…

I use less “I” and more “We.”

I write and share about not only what I think you need, but also what I am going through as a human just like you.

The first part of my career was trying to build a name and a business for myself, to make a good living, and help people.

Since turning 30 this summer, my goal and mission is to learn what it means for me to become the leader I believe I am meant to be, and then teach others how to do the same. I have no plans on leaving the fitness and wellness industry, because I don’t know a better way to get someone to believe in themselves enough to become a leader, then by helping them lose fat, gain strength, run faster, or tone up. By changing a person’s earth suit (their body) it nearly always transfers over into their minds and hearts.

I just listened to an audio of a guy who studied the literature on “death bed conversations.”  As you can imagine “I wish I would have spent more time working at the office” never comes up as someone is dying.  The two greatest regrets according to this interview were; I wish I would have spent more time with the ones I loved and cared about the most, and I wish I would have contributed more to society instead of worrying about stupid insignificant things.  Let’s learn these lessons now and not when we are ready to die.

In conclusion, thank you for spending a few minutes of your day, many days of the week, reading my writings (with more typos and grammatical errors then I would like to see), listening to my words, and watching my videos.  I hope in some way I challenge you to become healthier, become fitter, achieve goals that you didn’t think were possible, and to look fear in the eyes and do it anyways, which is my definition of courage.

I believe the decade of my 30’s is to discover what it means to be a leader and build up the Fit Moms For Life movement on the principals of “WE” rather then “I.”

Human connections are what we are needing more today then ever before. Ned Halloway calls it the Vitamin C deficiency, in which the “C” stands for community.

That is why I urge you, to reach out, put yourself out there, be vulnerable, and surround yourself with people who are striving for health and wellness, who put a premium on relationships, and have an overall positive and abundant mindset.

The quality of your life will skyrocket.

I look forward to growing older and wiser with you.

What Are Your Dreams?

dreams

As I was reading one of my personal training fitness professional magazines this weekend, I had a mini epiphany.  The article was written by a fitness professional name Greg Justice and he was talking about the difference between goals and dreams.

You hear me talk a lot on this blog about setting goals.  I believe so much in goal setting as one of the most powerful tools to helping you go from where you are now, to where you want to be in the future.  But this article I was reading talked about how we set goals in order to achieve our dreams.  It is our dreams that should really get us excited and keep us motivated!

The article listed a couple examples:

Goal: Lose 40 lbs.

Dream: Fitting into that little black dress and dancing in the arms of your husband once again just like you did in high school.

or

Goal: To achieve maximum health

Dream: The fear of becoming disabled and suffering a slow, painful death like your parent did.

I would like to ask you… What is your goal and the dream that goes along with it?

Before you do, I will start by sharing 3 of mine, two of which are physical and one career focused.

Goal: To eliminate my knee issues/pain.

Dream: To be able to play recreational basketball, football, and any other sport for many more decades.  To be able to hike some of the highest mountains in the world, to be able to play with my teenage kids and be able to beat them!

Goal: Achieve 4% body fat

Dream: To place in the top 5 at the world fitness modeling championships in Vegas (unfortunately with my elbow this will have to wait a year)!

This was me last year at Vegas with some of my friends. I was at 3.8% bodyfat!

Goal: To help transform the lives of 1,000,000 moms.

Dream: The overwhelming satisfaction of knowing that I not only empowered them to be the best they could be, but also played a role in helping the kids of the moms live a much healthier and fitter life.

I shared with you 3 of my goals and the dreams that were tied in with them.  Now it is your turn!  Also please consider the following question: If all your workout goals where achieved and became reality overnight, when you wake up tomorrow morning what would your life look like?
