Something you might not know about me... When applying for the college of my choice...what feels like so many years ago 😂...whole I had great grades, standardized tests were a struggle. I took the ACT 5 times, and the SAT 9 times in order to get scores high enough to get in. 😣 Crazy, right?
That means that I was willing to push myself AND willing to FAIL 14 times...to get what I wanted...in order to do what I felt I was called to do with my life. Sure, I got disgruntled every time I got my results back...but I didn’t call myself an idiot, I didn’t beat myself up...I just studied MORE, got help when I needed it, and ultimately got into my dream college.
I heard this quote recently from one of my favorite trainers...and he was talking about how much we push ourselves when we’re truly HUNGRY for something...and that made me think about these tortuous tests and what I was willing to endure... But then I thought...when was the last time I was that hungry? The last time I was willing to go into something, probably fail...but have that “I’ve just to keep trying until I succeed” kind of attitude? 🤔
Definitely had that when I started my health journey and definitely had that when I ventured into becoming a coach...👊🏼. Man, I was HUNGRY! Lol!! And with it, I found a passion I didn’t know I had anymore... But after I found success and met my early goals...then what? It’s been about 2 years...and I got COMFORTABLE. 😱 When that happens, excitement in all areas start to wane...and life just gets a little...blah. 😕
Nope! That’s not the life I want!! 🤨 And you know what? Staying HUNGRY takes work...it takes ACTION. No action = No results and no motivation...which means, the opposite is also true. 👊🏼 #timetotakeaction #createhunger #hardwork #lifeisoutsideyourcomfortzone #imready #teamstrengthfromwithin
