This morning, I watched as my new first grader confidently got on the bus for the first day of school. I stood outside with her in my workout clothes. I didn’t have make-up on. I was relaxed. I could be totally present with her. I had an overwhelming feeling of how blessed I am.
My life used to be so different…
This wasn’t my life a few years ago. I used to work at a corporate job. I had to shower, get ready, get my kids ready, and rush out of the house promptly at 8:00am every single morning. I sometimes yelled at my kids and had to rush them. Mornings were not a pleasant time. I felt so pressured to get to work on time.
As I dropped my kids at daycare, I would sometimes drive away with tears in my eyes. I didn’t like those mornings. I didn’t want to feel like I couldn’t take time to be present with my kids. I didn’t like rushing and pushing them into the daycare so I could get out quickly and get to work. I didn’t like starting their day off like that.
I felt like I was totally STUCK. I had to bring in an income for my family. That was important. BUT, I also wanted to be around more with my kids. I wanted to have a flexible schedule. I wanted to be able to make THEM my top priority. I wanted to have more control over my life and my days.
And then an opportunity came into my life. An opportunity that would allow me to design the life I wanted. To be able to make my family my top priority. To have more balance. To work from home. To decide how much and when I wanted to work. To do something I love. AND, to still be able to support my family with an income.
I took a leap of faith into building my own business as a Beacbody coach. It took dedication, persistence, strength and the willingness to grow as a person. Not everyone believed in my dream. But I did. And it was all worth it.
That’s why I have tears in my eyes on days like today. Because I feel so blessed that this opportunity came into my life…and that for some reason, I decided to give it a try.
So, today I want you to challenge you to try something new. I want you to learn about something outside of your limits.
You may be thinking, “Oh, that’s NOT for me. I can’t do that. I’m not in good shape. No one would want me to be their coach. I could never be successful.”
Tell that voice to BE QUIET (actually…tell it to SHUT-UP). No one is signing you up as a coach today…all I’m asking is for you to OPEN YOUR MIND and learn more about it.
You don’t know what you don’t know. And I want you to see what it’s ACTUALLY about. You may be surprised.
So, if you are going to accept my challenge, I want to get you into my free 5-Day Coaching Sneak Peek that starts next Monday. All you need to do is check it out. I’ll share some videos and info so that you can learn more about it.
And if it’s for you…great. And if it’s not…that’s cool too.
