What would you do if you could do exactly what you wanted. Every morning wake up doing what you love. I think in a certain way we are all trying to achieve working towards our inner happiness, or what we think will make us happy.
I have realized that I absolutely love fitness. I love teaching. I truly believe it is my calling to help people understand, achieve and get on a path to a healthy lifestyle. Not just losing weight or lifting heavy.
Sometimes Life definitely gets in the way. And the fear that we may not succeed at it. At one point in my life I was a full-time trainer. It was my sole base of income. But…I got injured and it really hindered my ability to teach some classes as well as train clients at times. I continued to work while injured and my recovery process took close to a year. Which was longer then necessary. This kind of made me scared to continue teaching and training as my full-time job. To this day I have it in the back of my head that it could happen again. And then what would I do!
Even though I have a (9-5 job) in the fitness field I still miss training and teaching 24/7. It is not easy and not for the faint of heart because you are usually up at 5am and pretty much have an open early afternoon, because regular people work during those hours. But, despite all of this I still love it. I still love learning about it. And educating myself in the fitness field. I am still studying for my Corrective Exercise Science certification and it is NO JOKE there is a lot of material! But I love learning this new information in order to help people and myself prevent and recover from injury.
Working a 9-5 has taught me that I can still train myself and help others. It takes some balance and will power but through online training, group classes, and private clients I still feel apart of the full-time fitness world. Even though I spend a majority of my life in a gym, Managing a gym or training, managing is very different.
So, what I am asking of you all is to do something either once a week or once everyday that brings you closer to the “Real Life 9-5” or all day life that you want. Release a fear, forgive someone who as wronged you, and BELIEVE in your crazy dream. Because it wasn’t placed in you by accident. My mother says, “God put that dream in you, because you are the one who is suppose to achieve it. So, do it with all of your heart”. And the older I get the more I believe this is true.
Sorry for the mushy post. Just something I felt I needed to share.
