I have been honored to assist you many wonderful people with improving their quality of life! I truely believe that people are adding years to their life and watching a person make remarkable changes is very HONORABLE!! I do not want people to just live their life by going through the motions but to really live their lives!
I have been thinking lately about just what causes us to place limits on ourselves from staying focused on their fitness goals. This mystery has fueled my desire to help transform so many people every single day!! Here are some of my thoughts and I want to share them with you:)
1.Does the person lack self confidence
2. Lack of knowledge to get better
3.Fear of the unknown that cause us to think negative
4.Do they have a troubled home life?
5.Do they have a troubled past as a child?
6. Are we afraid to face our fears and ignore them?
7. If they fail in fitness are they failing in other areas of their life?
8. Do they yo-yo in their professional careers?
Why do we let fear hold us back from reaching our potential? One common term often used when a person makes a remarkable transformation is called “Crossing The Abyss”. This term used by Bill Phillips stated that when a person finally makes the decision to cross the boundry to success and make those changes no matter what. Nothing will hold you back! Have you ever been put up against the ropes where failure was not acceptable? Personally I wonder the mindset of an individual that has a terminal illness? I wonder how that person would react if they knew they could get a second chance? Visualize how lucky we are to get a second chance every single day by having the opportunity to make those changes to get better!!
Every failure should be a learning experience that will hopefully teach you a new lesson and help you become a stronger person. I feel failures are presented to us for a reason…and that is to learn and live from our mistakes. The lesson I learned from rupturing 7 quadricep tendons was it was only up to me to succeed on my recovery. No matter how many physical therapy sessions that I attended and the endless support it all boiled down to my success of recovery was up to ME! Yes I often wondered what the future would hold for me and this brought frustration, fear, anger, guilt, blame but all facts aside the recovery was up to me. I did not chose the situation that made me face my own fears. I wrestled with the fear failure in my recovery process, and I wondered how my injury would affect my family and my business. My #1 goal was to recover as quickly as possible and get my life back to normal. I am blessed to have had a second chance to get better and have thought what if I didn’t?
One question that I often ponder is why do so many people take their health for granted? With current studies showing over 60% of people are overweight and over 50% will end up with diabetes. That is scary! Why does a person’s health become a priority when it fails? Why do they do everything in their power and spend endless money to recover their health once it leaves them? Money, occupation, and time is no EXCUSE then! Do we think that we can cure it by taking a pill? What about when the pill stops working then what? How about doing the prevenative steps to prevent these stages of failed health. Where are we going to live when we wear our bodies out from abusing them from poor nutrition and living an unhealthy lifestyle? How we treat our bodies in our earlier years will determine the quality of our lives in the future. HONOR your body now!
When transforming your physique start off your day by tying your shoes and taking one meal, one workout at a time! Set daily goals and have those goals taking you closer to your fitness goals. Every day is like walking a fine line that can bring you closer or further away from your fitness endeavor! If you fail 99 times but only succeed 1 time then you have won. Never, never, never give up!! KEEP Focused!!
I want to share a video that really hits home and I personally found it very MOTIVATIONAL!!
