December 8, 2015
This is a two-parter, yes it’s December, and it’s a popular theme, but it’s true!
First, Give Back to Someone Else
I challenge you to give back to someone less fortunate than you. We team up with our coaches and adopt a family for Christmas and find a family that needs help and we team up and help them. This year it’s a single mom of 2 amazing kids, who was in an abusive relationship and is now out of it and trying to rebuild her life and her kids’ lives. Somebody once told me that “God will only give you what he knows you can be responsible for”, whether you believe in God or not isn’t the point, it’s the principle of “do for others as you want them to do for you”. You can call it karma if you want.
Second, Give Back to Yourself
I want you to examine yourself over the next couple of weeks. Think back on 2015 and ask yourself how it went? Are you where you want to be? And not just from a physical and health standpoint, but from an ENTIRE life standpoint. I can promise you if your health is out of whack or you’re overweight etc., it’s a direct reflection on other areas of your life. Nine times out of ten, when your checking account is out of whack, your marriage is out of whack, you’re at a job you can’t stand, it bleeds over into every part of your life. It’s like cancer that eats at you and all of your happiness.
I want you to make a commitment to yourself to change it. Doesn’t have to be drastic, take baby steps. Pick one area of your life you want to fix. I’ll use fitness as an example because that’s what we do. Don’t wait to January 1, when it’s popular to commit, do it now! Start over the next couple of weeks to make small changes every day, SO that come January 1, you’ve primed yourself for success, you’ve begun to lay the foundation in which you can build upon. Below is a video I encourage you to watch. Much like Shaun (my soul brother) Eric Thomas is a huge inspiration to me. Alisha and I had the pleasure to finally meet him a few weeks back, and I use his books and videos with our coaches to help us “stay on track” and get better. I want you to be better in 2016 and if you decide to invite us on the journey with you from a fitness standpoint, or you decide you want to coach and give back while also taking control of your life, we’ll be honored to be your co-pilot. Enjoy the video.
