After one of those nights where I tossed and turned all night till 4 am then finally got a few hours sleep from 4-8 am, it was hard to get up and going this morning! I need a LOT of extra UMPH to get me onto the treadmill today for a morning run … I totally needed it though… I am super stiff and sore from all that tossing around and need to loosen up big time. The concept of extra “UMPH” really got me thinking…?
Having extra UMPH applies to all other areas of life too! It often takes an extra push to go a little outside our comfort zone to make progress and change in our life. It could be in our relationships, decisions, finances, business, emotional health, fitness, work, social skills, life skills and more.
I would say as we are heading towards the new year, put a little extra UMPH into some areas of your life and see just how dramatic the positive changes will be! Lets get out of the rut we are living in and make some amazing progress in 2018! Get your excitement and passion for life back again! Pick 3 areas of your life that need it most, then go for it! (And be sure to write them down!… Putting pen to paper, makes the achievement and success more likely!…)
Enjoy your Holiday Season and let’s get ready for a fabulous and incredible 2018 with all that extra “UMPH”!! ??
You may be wondering a little about just how I ended up being here like this with you today.
Let me tell you a quick story about a couple years ago, I was so tired, sore, miserable and unhappy….had sore back, knees and whole body pain issues. Was overweight and living cheque to cheque and was truly in a bad place in life. .
At the time I was trying to find a way to pay bills as a single mom, eat clean and get into better shape..
I was struggling with juggling kids, grandson, work, looking after an acreage, horses, dogs and trying to get the bills paid. It felt like I had no time and certainly no energy to exercise and no money to buy the proper healthy food..
And I was getting more and more disgusted with the extra weight i was carrying around and realized just how out of shape I had become. I was frustrated with never having any money left over after payday. .
Then something really bad happened: I went outside to play with my kids on the lawn and suffered severely with body and back pain after that for weeks, and realized something had to change. I saw my doctor and every medical test was normal, which told me clearly that there was something seriously wrong with my lifestyle and habits..
Being in crappy shape like this meant I couldn’t be the kind of mom, grandma and friend I wanted to be and to be able to afford to do fun things in life like we deserved to do..
As you can imagine, I was in bad shape and desperate, but I wasn’t ready to give up on my dream of having my own business to build financial freedom and getting healthy again with the ultimate goal to be in the best shape of my life..
Then I discovered something called Team Beachbody, which has superfood and professionally designed fitness programs…and an opportunity to build financial freedom at the same time!
At that point, everything changed!
I discovered / finally figured out how to:
– Regain my energy, zest for life and be able to feel good again
– Working out at home with professional programs really gave amazing results (check out the muscles!)
– Eating clean and superfood is NOT expensive at all if you learn to manage your grocery budget and do not eat out
Because I discovered Team Beachbody, superfood and professionally designed fitness programs and the business opportunity, I was able to:
– Run and play with my grandson with energy and without getting tired or sore,
– Lose 40 pounds and maintain weight easier and have the effective tools and expertise to help others to get healthier as well
– Look younger, feel younger, and pay off debt which had been plaguing me for years and finally feel HAPPY!
Now I’m living my dream of having my own business and getting healthier to be in the best shape of my life and I never have to worry about suffering ever again.
And that’s why I’m so passionate about ourupcoming 21 day beginner superfood and fitness challenge where we provide the free coaching so you can successfully experience getting back into shape to be in the best shape of your life too!..and even grow your own fitness business if you want!
What you focus on is what you get. I have slowly learned to focus on what I want to achieve instead of focusing on why it is not possible or why it can’t be done. No more of that crap for me!! I now focus on the positive outcome I want and it just happens…by doing this, my vision naturally pulls me along!
The way it used to be was that I would always be telling myself what I “should” be doing and groaning at how difficult it was. This is NO way to get motivated at all because the focus is all wrong!
I started focusing on feeling positive, energized, toned, chiseled and happy with some muscles, having a passion for life and what I am doing and this kind of vision just pulls me along with a huge smile and energy!!
Having a positive vision with strong associated passion works for no matter what you want to achieve!! A healthy body, incredible work life, great friends, a happy family, a great living environment etc…it is worth it to learn to make this mental shift and seriously working on personal development is the only way to get there!
Get fired up and happy with your life! If you would like some suggestions on where to start, don’t hesitate to message me. It is totally life changing and I am proof of that! I have now overcome a very rough childhood past and all of the emotional baggage that comes with that and divorce, and much other crap I have been through! None of that gets me down anymore…I am now thankful I had those experiences to build on the strengths that I now have today…totally a better feeling to have than being dragged down with anger and self-pity!!
Have a fabulous and thankful day today! Day #11 of my 91 day fitness challenge complete!?
I must say that today is an interesting and thought-provoking Wednesday.
I was listening to my mentor Darren Hardy this morning, and… he was talking about what it takes to achieve greatness.
He was saying… It’s not necessarily what we do for a living or do each day that makes us great, but rather the exceptional effort that we put into it that’s above and beyond average.
So no matter if you’re a nurse, a doctor, a grandmother, mom, a teacher, a caretaker, a computer programmer, Lab technician, a friend, a coworker, coach, etc… None of these titles make us great. What makes us great is the amount of passion and effort you put into these roles in our life. For example if you mindlessly punch the clock or wake up every morning and begrudgingly do the bare minimum, does that make you great? If you perform your duties or work with vigour and passion, go the extra mile, and give it 110%, does that make you great?
Give this concept a try today….be the exception and not the rule. Work at putting more passion and going the extra mile into everything that you do today… See if it makes you feel great!!?
