Trust your journey


It’s funny how things come together when you least expect it.  For example the important things that came into my life simply came out of my passion for doing them and me not trying to hard to get them.  I was very goal oriented and would focus on the goals on a daily basis but did not stress over them too much.  The things I ruminate about and was thinking about too much never came into fruition. 

Fitness was something I was never considering to be something that would make such an impact on my life.  Through fitness I found a community and a calling to help people to achieve their own greatness and not compare themselves to anyone else.  I never expected fitness to be such a big aspect of my life and a way of living.  Before three years ago I would have never even step foot in a gym but one thing came after another and my life kind of drifted into that path.  That is the lesson I want to point out here is to go with the flow and don’t force it.  If you follow your gut feeling and think that it’s right take little steps in that direction and watch it flourish.  I took little steps to my fitness journey. 

It all started when I was tired of the lifestyle that I was living.  I had no energy, tired, couldn’t focus and was not too proud of my body and that affected my confidence.  I saw that as a lifestyle and I was unhappy.  Because of the support I saw fitness as a last result and told myself that I would go to the gym every single day for a month at 5am before work for an hour and see what results came out of it.  A month passed and by then fitness because a lifestyle for me.  I was addicted and obsessed with improving my life through fitness.  It was an aha moment when i started seeing physical and mental results and I was not the same person and will never be the same person I was again before I started my fitness journey.  Everyone has greatness in them, they just have to take that leap of faith and go through the process of being great.  It’s like being sick; when you are sick your body hurts and you are going through so much pain that sometimes it is hard to imagine what if feels like not being sick until you get better.  Fitness is the same thing you have to be willing to go through a little pain in the beginning and eventually you will reap the benefits of your hard work and begin to see the positive changes you will make.  I was the same way; I was so unhappy and could not see the light at the end of the tunnel but then I persisted and consistent and over time the light grew closer and closer.  A lot of people say they don’t have time, but you have 128 hours in a week.  I’m sure in that time there is 4 hours you can put away to focus on your fitness.  That’s an hour a day for 4 days which is only 1 percent of your day.  There are many things that can help you to make the transition to a fit life or to do anything you are passionate about.  The resources are there you just have to be willing to take that leap of faith and believe that you can do it.  So what are you waiting for let the journey begin and if you do not know how to begin read my next blog I am going to put up to help you.  Sometimes we need a little push and that is what I am here for.
