In my 20s... "You never stop. I just want to enjoy my time. You're burning the candle at both ends"
In my 30s... "should you be doing... You're fanatical. That's crazy!" ------------------------------------------------
In my 40s... "How did you get so lucky? Man, I wish..." ---------------------------------------------
It's not luck, it's knowing what YOU want long term and not wasting time on things you'll forget in 2 weeks. It's trading in an okay life for a Phenomenal life. It's earning your RESPECT in following through on creating the life you know you deserve.
THIS is a behind the scenes of what our jobs of health and fitness coaches looks like.
It’s almost 3am on a Saturday morning (technically) here in London. We are busy introducing new 🇬🇧 UK Founding coaches to the team and getting them setup for success and support 🙂. Our new coach training academy starts in a few weeks, so what better time to join us!
Training is free once you join and you can be mentored by me of course 🙂. The opportunity to get in on this level (seeing as the UK has a population of over 66 million people) is HUGE 💥!!!!
So why not you and why not now?
Stop doubting and start trying and doing.
Join me or continue to watch. Either way, I’m just a message away 😘.
I had a beautiful day working along side this beautiful lady talking about Leadership and growing our business. I love this #oneteam mentality. We are not financially connected but we show up as one with pure love and no ego. I love my #healthytribe .
Thank you Ellen Bradley Ganus for connecting us.
Wednesday evening, right before our Training Camp, my sister-in-law called Justin's phone hysterically in tears: she'd totaled her car in a 4 vehicle accident on the interstate. It's amazing what can go through your mind in a matter of seconds, "is she okay?", "oh no, her car", "are the others okay?", etc.
Mine and Justin's hearts are worn: the past two months have been incredibly difficult for us: stress from our businesses, financial strain, car issues, emotional and mental struggle, health of our family members, feeling like we just don't have enough hours in the day: one. thing. after. another.
We are so thankful Mamie is okay, and so thankful that even as life continues to throw trial after trial at us and our family, we remember why we opened the doors at SmithFit: a calling from God that superseded any stress or fear.
There are days that we doubt, days it seems easier to just close the doors, days where it feels like the time keeps ticking but we can't keep up; but, we know, that this is only temporary and no matter how difficult it may get, we can keep our eyes and hope on someone far greater than ourselves. Through Him he carries us, our businesses, and our families through the hardest of times; all things work together for His good.
Too many businesses, and people, aren't open with their struggles. At SmithFit we're different in just about every way and we want to continue to be a service of light and hope to this community, our members, friends, and family by sharing or struggles, letting you know you're not alone, and that with continual prayer and hope, we can overcome ☺️
We hope that each of you have a beautiful, wonderful, fantastic weekend ☀️
I recently came across a newsletter style blog, similar to what I publish here, penned by someone I worked with in the not so distant past. There was a strange similarity to it – with some of the tics, cadence, and themes, that I recognize in my own musings.
At first, I was shocked.
And after that, I am pretty sure there was some eye rolling and judging on my part.
Feeling copied does not bring out the best of me, or anyone, really.
At around this same time, a ceramicist friend whose work has a recognizable color, shape, and stripe, had a similar observation. He questioned whether his signature style had been channeled by a much more famous studio mate.
Another former colleague discovered the entrepreneurial network she founded being duplicated by a former member.
And for anyone who makes and distributes products, you’re used to getting knocked off. But it doesn’t change how deeply irritating it is when it happens.
When words, ideas, a product or style feel co-opted – used by someone else for profit – it burns in the belly. Those on the receiving end want justice and credit. Our desire to right the wrong can produce feelings of preparing for battle or at the very least a child-like tantrum, though neither deliver a very satisfying resolution.
So assuming legal issues are not at stake, and the knocker-offer didn’t violate a patent, what can we really do when we see a version of our work, authored by someone else, in the marketplace?
One option is to quietly seethe, become resentful, grow-chip-on -shoulder, blame your failures on other people, and otherwise shrink into a person you wouldn’t be friends with…much less want to become.
The other is to get curious. Why was I inspiring to them? Why does it feel like me or mine…and could it simply be that he or she is tapping into the zeitgeist? A coincidence? What is this triggering in me… my ego, image, fear of losing customers… or is something else at stake?
A different option comes courtesy of Marcus Buckingham who, in response to discord, says: “Assign the most generous possible explanation, and then believe it.” Read more in the first comment.
Finally Friday! 🌸🎉 So ready for a weekend full of sleep, Netflix, and sweatpants! But who am I kidding...I have a vacation to pack for! At least there will be plenty of time for relaxing once I land! ✈️ ---
What are your plans after this crazy week? Are you heading out on an adventure like me, in or all aboard the lazy train? 🚂💆💥😪
Most people think achieving your goals is the most important thing about setting goals. It's not. The most important thing about setting goals is WHO YOU BECOME in order to achieve your goals. 💪🏻
Have you set goals? Not in your mind, but written down on paper and placed somewhere you can see them on a daily basis? Are your goals S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic & Time-sensitive) goals? 🤔
If you haven't done this yet, do it now. Take the time to set your focus on what you want to accomplish. This will give you the exact actions we need to perform to achieve those goals. ✅
Double tap and share if you're taking a first step by setting goals! 👊🏻💥
