Be Boldy You

I wonder a lot about where people find their motivation. Me? I’m pretty average. I’ve never lost 100 pounds. I’ve never lost 60 pounds in baby weight, I’ve never competed in some bikini competition proving my diligence to fitness. No, I’m pretty much your average person who tries their hardest to make healthy choices and workout. But lately, I’ve been finding motivation in a book. Team Beachbody sent me a free book when I helped a certain number of people make the choice to better their health. The book is called “15 Invaluable Laws of Growth” by John Maxwell. Now, this book has been in my house for about 2 months and I left it untouched. It wasn’t until Joe picked it up and started to read it that I got the urge to read it too. I mean, 1 day after reading a few chapters he had scheduled 3 appointments that he had put off for MONTHS. There had to be something good in there! 

So far, it’s taught me a lot about my excuses that I come up with in my life. And usually those excuses come from fear. I’ve held back on trying to pursue my friends and family to live a healthier life because I’m afraid of what they will think. I waited so long to become a Coach with Beachbody because I didn’t want people to think I was lame. I waited even LONGER to tell anyone about my blog and business venture because, again, I didn’t want people to think it was weird. Over and over again I’ve realized that a lot of the time I won’t do something because of the fear of what OTHER PEOPLE will think about it.   And over and over again I’m proven wrong. When people found out about my blog—they were all so supportive. When I became a Beachbody Coach and revealed my little transformation, everyone again thought that it was amazing! People in my life are always supportive—so I don’t know why I keep using them as an excuse to not do something. I’ve found my New Year’s Resolution for 2014 for sure! Stop using others as an excuse! Well, that and help as many people as possible love their bodies and respect their health!

What keeps you from chasing your dreams? Are you fearful of what other people will think, or is it something else?
