Second was to not only meet these unbelievable speakers, but to also meet like minded individuals that are either succeeding or beginning their journey chasing their dreams. All of the over 250 attendees were each pursuing a vision of creating their perfect life by helping others and giving back!
That is best part of this "job". I get to help people lose weight, gain muscle, increase energy, and live their best life! Allowing individuals to regain their confidence, their health, their life, is the absolute number one reason I do this. Being able to put food on the table and keep the lights on is an added bonus.
About two years ago I began this journey. It took a while to get things rolling because honestly I was scared and uncertain. I wanted to begin helping people but wasn't really sure how?
Not only that but it goes against the norm. You can't have an online business?! What you need to do is go to college, get a good job, work for 40 years, retire, then die...right?
At least that is what I was taught and did!
I went to school, got a "great" job, started making over $100,000 within a couple years. Perfect right? Well not for me!
Now I didn't hate the job or the people or the money. It was not doing what I was truly passionate about that kept eatin' me up. I couldn't just go through the motions of doing something I wasn't put on this earth to do anymore.
So I changed!
And if there is one BIG piece of information I can give to you guys it is that life is too short to not do what you love. I know we all hear it and think..."yeah but I can't leave what I am doing to do...". Well let me be the first to tell you that is not true.
The problem is that everyone says it is not possible...
- "it will take too much time"
- "it will cost too much"
- "my friends will judge me"
- "I can't really do what I want"
These are just some of things that pop into your head if you think about changing your life and pursuing your dreams. I know they did for me!
You need to step up to the plate and keep swinging! Put fear on the back burner. Maybe you make $50,000 less by making the change. That is ok. Money isn't everything. Money should only be seen as a vehicle to help you achieve happiness and freedom. And I don't mean driving your lambo down main street. I mean having the financial and time freedom to do the things you love!
If you are working in a job you hate for $125,000 a year...quit! Maybe you and your family will need to make a lifestyle change? Then do it! Life is too short to NOT do what you love. Plain and simple.
Thats's what this past weekend was all about. It was about taking your passion and turning into a successful career. Imagine being able to help others and at the same time freeing yourself from the rat race that 95% of everyone is caught in. Well it is possible. You just have to do it.
Spend the time learning, finding the resources you will need, and reach out to people that can help you. At first you might need to put in 14 hour days. Maybe 8 at your "old" job and 6 following your dream...trust me I know! But it will pay off.
I am telling you this because I not only love helping people get healthy but I love helping people reach their ultimate goals in life! I am sick of seeing people wake up each day miserable and disappointed with their life.
I made the change and so can you! It just takes some elbow grease, lots of passion and determination, a HUGE goal where nothing can get in your way, oh and coffee!
First, think about what you are truly passionate about in life. What gives you the greatest joy?
Second, think about ways of turning that into a career. Now I know it can be difficult but I can tell you that someone on this planet is probably doing something similar to what your dream is. Find them online and model their success. I don't mean copy everything they do I mean see how they are turning their passion into a career and model something similar.
Third, work your ass off! Don't let anyone tell you you can't do it. Let nothing get in your way. If people are negative in your life...cut them out of your life.
Fourth, don't quit and put in the time!
It will be hard. There is no silver bullet or overnight success. You will need to work and work hard. But in the long run it will pay off! Trust me!
Are you ready to make a change?
Live Your Best Life...and start today!
