I have been a bit ‘edgy’ lately and I totally know why! I am nervous about a proposition that has come up. This is a really great opportunity for me to expand my business. I have recently become certified as a Personal Fitness Trainer through I.S.S.A. I have begun training clients in my home but I do want to branch out.
I have been asked to conduct a fitness class. I have been thinking about doing something like this for a long time…and now I can! Why am I feeling so nervous about it? The funny thing is that I was listening to the Unstoppable Fat Loss audio series and I think it was Dr. Joe Vitale that said, ‘You know you have set a goal worth pursuing when you feel some fear about it, but a lot of excitement.‘ I thought it was so strange that I’ve feeling this way and then I hear this awesome quote! It’s so true, isn’t it? I am so thrilled to expand in the fitness field, yet it’s that fear of failure that knocks me down. However, I know now that true ‘failure’ is when you don’t give it a shot at all.
We truly are our ‘own worst enemies’ when it comes to everyday life. Most of us are absorbed with negative thoughts originating out of fear. Did you know that every day the majority of people are thinking 90% of the same thoughts as they had yesterday?! Isn’t this crazy?
When I think about this I realize that I need to keep myself in the present and have a clear vision of my goals. The past is the past and should be kept there. We should identify ourselves with whom we are in this present moment. I believe I’ve learned this from Dax Moy, another inspirational speaker in the Unstoppable Fat Loss Audio Series.
I was wondering if any of you have any inspirational stories to share about how you have gotten over a fear(s)? What are some tips you can give to help others to achieve great things?
Have a terrific day!
Cheers to health,
