Every now and then I get complacent in my life and my group outdoor fitness business. This happens when either Im tired, or I can not be bothered dealing with certain things in life.
Its something that I am aware of and strive to get better at all the time – having difficult conversations with people that I know real well scares the hell out of me.
In fact when I was reflecting earlier this year before I relaunched my fitness classes on where I wanted to be at in 2017, my answer was
“to re-prioritise and focus on the things that I do well, and not be stressed when the plan falls over. The game plan will not always stick when there is a new baby’s agenda to work with. Ultimately, our perception is our reality and we can choose how we want to see things in life.
What does that mean?
That means being comfortable with things that make me uncomfortable in life – pushing through things that I don’t really want to do, so I can keep moving forward.
Why is this important to me?
Because I want to be happy, to be strong, to feel good about myself, to continue to learn, to continue to be inspired by others, to feel energised, to be challenged by new things in life and to be challenged by the new people that I meet in life.
To be totally honest, some of that scares me just a little?
Cause its the unknown. For a long time I have had a great group of clients who make me feel comfortable, who I love teaching and who form a great community of people.
I don’t know what challenges I will face with new people that I meet, how hard conversations may be and what the outcomes will be.
So that means that I need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
And I am willing to do that.
To learn more about myself, to grow, and to continue to learn from others and be able to also inspire others.
If your goals don’t scare you, they’re not big enough.
Start by answering these questions (write them down):
- What did you set yourself to achieve in 2017?
- Where are you currently at with this?
- What was the most important learning over the last 12 months?
- What can you improve right now so you can keep pushing forward?
And then, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Because I’m looking for people who want to become stronger and better; who want to work on their mind and their body, who understand there is always room to grow, to learn and to improve, but also know how to acknowledge their strengths, and where they are at right now. I want to work with people who want to commit to themselves to get awesome results!
