I recently had a rare morning where I was at home and able to participate (yes, not coach – participate) in a 5AM Zoom Class with Amanda, just like the rest of you 🙂
Then my alarm went off…
My bed felt so comfortable, it was still dark outside, and of course I didn’t “have to workout”. But, I knew it would be the only real time I could workout throughout my day. The internal self-talk that went back and forth of staying in my warm bed or getting my lazy butt out of the bed continued for about 20 minutes before I finally threw my hands up in the air and said “Fine! I will workout!” and forced myself up out of bed and down stairs.
And you know what? I had zero regrets of waking up early. It set the tone for the rest of my day. It was hard, I second guessed it, but I did it and then spent the rest of my day better off because of it.
A few years ago, I was very comfortable in my business. Running things out of my car, traveling from place to place training great people. All of a sudden an opportunity arose to build my own gym, a place for all my clients and boot camps to be held in one location. An opportunity that would potentially allow me to grow a small community all in one location, with no more working out of my car.
I was scared. I was nervous. I second guessed it. Of course, I didn’t really need to do it…. but I jumped in knowing this could be something great.
Grit Fitness & Wellness has been more than great. We have 5 trainers, 13 classes, over a hundred members & clients. Even though I was scared, even though I was comfortable, even though I was successful in my current position – I am so thankful I took the jump and made the change.
Sometimes things can be hard, or they can be scary, or they can seem unrealistic.
This month, I want you to step outside your comfort zone in this gym. I am challenging you to make a change, to say yes to something scary.
To lift a heavier weight.
To attend a different class time.
To work with a personal trainer.
To get out of your comfortable bed at a time you said you’d never do.
And if you’re scared, do it anyways. Say yes to yourself! Afterall, I truly believe all great things start with being a little nervous.
