There were so many reasons why I couldn’t do it. I had so many excuses, and very legitimate sounding explanations… But, just as Jen Sincero says in You are a Badass, “If you are serious about changing your life, you’ll find a way. If you’re not, you’ll find an excuse.” And the thing I had to change the most was my mindset.
It took me a good long while to stop blaming my circumstances, and actually buckle down and do what needed to get done. I needed to change those daily thoughts and self-talk that was holding me back and making me believe I was not capable or worthy of success.
I am still a work in progress, very much so, and there are still days, and even weeks, that are much harder than others. But I have learnt so much along the way, and I have seen the reward of changing my daily routine to be inline with my long-term goals.
I have learnt more about myself than I ever thought I would. I have come to see my weaknesses (never fun), and also my strengths. I have dealt with past pains, and celebrated current successes. Taking the step to make a change and branch out into health and fitness coaching has been the most terrifying thing I have done, but what I have gained in return has far outweighed the fear and insecurity I felt as I started down this path.
Today, Rob and I are completely debt-free, we have just made our last car payment, plus we are both able to put money away into a savings account each month. This Summer it might still be tight, but we are not worried about the slow Summer months ahead, and all of this is simply because of making a change and taking a step towards building our dreams.
Are you ready to make a change? Do you want to gain control of your health and fitness? Do you want to build your own business helping others and supporting them along their journey? Are you ready to start creating the life you dream of having, but up until now has felt impossible?
Make a change, take a step, chase down the things you want the most, and don’t give up until you reach your goals. You are worthy, you are capable, and you are mightier than you know!
