PINCH ME! One week from today Scott and I will be checking in to Loews Coronado Bay Resort. Earning a spot in the Team Beachbody Coach Leadership Retreat was a goal I set for myself back in January. Fewer than 1% of coaches in the network hit this goal. I knew it would be a stretch to reach it (it TOTALLY was) but I KNEW that with hard work, determination I’d get there. There were times when I didn’t feel like pushing. I made excuses and told myself it was “ok” if I didn’t make it, even though deep down inside I knew I’d be disappointed in myself if I didn’t. My “old self” probably would have given in to those voices. I don’t want to be that “old self” anymore. So in July, I decided not making it was out of the question and I proceeded to qualify by the SKIN OF MY TEETH.
So, even though this resort is gorgeous and Coronado will be amazing, it’s what this trip REPRESENTS to me that I’m so excited about. I’ll also be surrounded by amazing coaches that I have admired and looked up to since I started coaching. I can’t believe that I’m now ONE OF THEM. If the retreat were held in a van down by the river, I’d still be super excited!! (but I’m glad it’s not)
My next big scary goal is to help my team reach ELITE status this year. It’s another one that’s going to take a lot of pushing and determination; not just on my part, but on that of my team. Like my first big scary goal this year, this one will also come down to the wire. It’s really stressful!! However, I have faith them (even though I can be like Matt Foley screaming at them sometimes). I know that they can do it if they set their own minds to it. They know that mental part comes firs; making their goals non-negotiable. That’s the hard part. After that, the work comes pretty easily. My team refuses to give up, especially when it gets hard and most would throw in the towel. We know that reaching those goals in spite of the difficulties is what will gives us self-confidence to go on and achieve the next big scary one. Our team is pretty badass! I’m so proud of them, and humbled that they chose me as their leader. Even when I don’t have the answers. And if I push too hard, it’s because I know they can do it even if THEY don’t know it yet.
One of the best parts of my job is mentoring other women to become the best they can be. You know what’s the cool part? You can’t have action without an equal REACTION, to when you help others, you help yourself. That’s the concept on which our team was built. If you want something, give it away. If you want to be healthy, encourage someone else to choose wellness. If you feel like you’re in a slump, help someone out of theirs. I call it the KARMA OF COACHING.
What would YOU do if you knew you couldn’t fail? And perhaps an even more important question, why aren’t you doing it? If you want to learn more about coaching and how to join my team, send me a message. What we do is so much more than health and fitness. WE give people their self-confidence back. I have a sneak peek and mentorship training starting SOON. I look back on what I’ve achieved since becoming a coach in the past two years since adopting this mindset, and my only regret is not starting sooner.
Our next coach training starts soon! I’m looking for 3-4 self-motivated fitness enthusiasts I can mentor to help grow their own online fitness/wellness business. Submit your application and I’ll respond within 24-48 hours.
