How Many Times Have You Heard…

How many times have you heard people around you say, “This is just my life.  This is the hand I was dealt.  It is what it is.”  I actually had someone say to me, “That’s just your cross to bare.”  Forgive me for saying, but statements like these just don’t fly in my world!  Yes, we experience moments of discomfort, bumps in the road and some time in the valley along our journey.  These moments are to be seen for what they are – opportunities for personal growth!  I allow myself a 10 minute pity party and then I stand up, dust my pants off,  look within and ask to be shown the lesson so that I may move on in strength.  The key is to make sure you are in optimum health.  This process of stretching and growing is much harder when you’re not at your best.  Many people I have coached over the years didn’t realize how poorly they were functioning until they experienced good health.

I didn’t realize I was just feeling OK until I felt Exceptional Health!

The difference for me came just about a year ago.  A very close friend took a chance (because she knew I was in the fitness/nutrition world) and shared what she said to be, “the best super food you’ll ever pump into your body”.  At first I said thank you, but no thank you.  I was feeling OK and had been able to create a body that LOOKED healthy and strong.  I’m so glad she asked me again because “LIFE” was exhausting me.  Family, young children, career, commitments (you all know what I mean) had overstretched my system and my body was talking to me.  IT WAS NOT HAPPY!  Thanks to my friend and these products, I am NOW in the BEST HEALTH OF MY LIFE (even better than when I played D1 college basketball 25 years ago)!   I now look forward to all the lessons that come my way because I can enjoy them just as much as I enjoy my mountain top moments!

If I Could Grant You One Wish…

“Never give up on what you really want to do.  The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts.”

~Albert Einstein

If I could grant you one wish, what would it be?  To get one more week of vacation, to leave work an hour early, to get a parking spot in front of a building, to have more money than month?

I recently started asking perfect strangers this question and the answers above were some of the responses I received.  Sure, one extra week of vacation would be nice, but is that the most exciting thing someone could request if I could truly deliver on the spot?

Personally, I believe most adults have turned off their “Dreamer”!  That’s right, we’ve all grown up to be responsible adults because someone told us it was time to “grow up”.  What they forgot to share was that we CAN have our cake and eat it too!  We can be responsible AND continue to DREAM!  Start thinking outside the box.  Start thinking about your life as a possibility waiting to show up.  When it comes to dreams, go big or go home!  Answer my question without the possibility of a “NO” answer.  The best way to start happening to Life instead of Life happening to you is to make a huge DREAM list.  Look at it and say yes.

Wake up your Dreamer and don’t make the same mistake many have made before us.  Allow children to dream as big as they want!  Instead of shooting down the craziest dream you’ve ever heard, simply say, “That sounds great!  How do you think you could do that?”  You will be amazed by the answers you get.
