I’m sitting on my deck in the sun on this awesome Spring day thinking about the last 6 months and all I can think is “Wow. What a ride.”
I just had my 3 year anniversary with Beachbody. I haven’t been active the entire 3 years, until recently. I love helping people make such a huge change in their lives. It is one of the most rewarding things I can do. Not only that, but it keeps me accountable in my own goals as well. I can’t very well be telling people to eat healthy and workout everyday if I am sitting over here eating Bon-Bons on the couch.
I have been working hard the last 6 months to create something bigger than myself. I have set a pretty big goal for myself. I am determined to reach that goal by the end of the year. I have never felt so dedicated to reaching a personal goal in my life. Maybe it is just because I am at a point in my life where I realized that it is now or never. I ain’t getting any younger.
You might know that I lost my dad to liver cancer this past December. When I look back, so many bad things happened in 2014 with that bringing it to a close. When the New Year hit, I was a changed person. Life is too short. He was only 53. FIFTY-THREE. That would give me just 20 years left on this earth to make a difference. That’s not much time. Losing him only reinforced my goals.
I am focused on my goals because I know they will help me to do just that. I know they will help my family and I create a life that we imagined would take us quite a few more years to live. I know that I can have an impact on so many people and it makes all the early mornings and late nights worth it.
You know what? I am getting there. Slowly, but surely. My business is growing. I wouldn’t want it any other way. I have to grow along with this business. I have to learn to stretch and push myself. I am working a full-time job as well as coaching. I have work to do and I am still very passionate about making sure I fulfill all my promises on that front as well.
Some days are harder than others. Some days are easier than others. There are some days when I think “Man, this is really happening.” And there are some days when I think “Shit. Not today.” But I keep pushing forward, knowing that there are more good days than bad. I know that I will get there. It’s just going to take time.
