Almost 3 years ago, I was feeling guilty because I wanted more. I wanted more out of life. I wanted to be more for my family and for myself. I wanted to have more purpose in my life. I wanted more health and financial freedom. I felt selfish.
How could I ask for more? Didn't I have everything I want? I had a good life. A good job. Good health. But if I was being honest with myself, I was just settling. I thought things like Purpose and Passion were just things that famous people like Oprah had, not this little teacher. What could I possibly do that would have any kind of impact and meaning to my life and others?
Even when I first joined Beachbody, I had my doubts. I honestly did it in the beginning to keep myself accountable to my physical goals. Plus, my team was a lot of fun so I wanted to be part of that.
And then, something magical started to happen. As I worked on myself, my body and mind, I would pay it forward by sharing my struggles and accomplishments with others. Suddenly, I discovered my purpose. I had a responsibility to dedicate my life to showing other moms that no matter how broken or depleted we are, we need to work on ourselves in order to have enough to share with others. With my dad passing away a few months ago, it only fueled this passion. I could no longer sit back and not do something to help moms lead the way to their family's health.
I work hard because my team and my business mean the world to me. It's not for everyone. But I take pride in what we do and what this has done for my family as well as those we have helped along the way. And to think, it started with a workout and a shake.
Because of Beachbody, I have taught my kids that ordinary is not good enough.
We were meant to lift others up and be extraordinary.
