How are you? Can you believe it’s JUNE already?! Holy -ish, where is the time going?…I’ve had so much on my mind and in my heart lately and I don’t know where to begin. As you may or may not know, I became a Beachbody Coach over a year ago. I joined my Girlfriend Tina’s challenge group with the intention of getting back in shape after having my second baby, and signed up as a “Coach” exclusively for the discount on my Shakeology. Little did I know that Coaching would become such an integral part of Me, and ultimately a BIG part of Girlfriends Inc.
I’m thrilled to report that I’m still 100% committed to my health and fitness today! Before Beachbody, I would start and quit workout programs over and over again and would eventually just give up entirely. I had NEVER stuck to any workout routine for this long! And I feel even more dedicated with each passing day to not only continue on my journey but to share it and motivate other women, especially fellow Mamas, to do the same and join me!
All that being said, I’ve struggled MOST with the “business” side of being a Coach. Despite my intense desire to share my story and my personal success, I’ve been completely frozen in FEAR to really talk to people about the Coaching business opportunity. I’m afraid of what they’ll think of me (blah blah blah, it’s a pyramid scheme)…I’m afraid of being JUDGED. So, to avoid this judgement, I do nothing, because I’m afraid. I’ve chosen inaction and denial as my security blankets.
I’ve had a lot of STOPS and STARTS in my Coaching business. I’ve struggled with unsupportive family and friends, with A LOT of rejection and as a result, I’m nowhere near where I want to be in my business. With our annual Coach Summit just a few weeks away, I now find myself with my back against the wall. You see, one of my biggest struggles has been to get my Hubby onto the Beachbody “bandwagon” per se. He is 100% supportive of my personal journey, but does NOT believe in the business opportunity at all…And, as a result, we have an agreement: that he will be supportive and keep his “negative Nancy” comments about coaching to himself about until Coach Summit, and if I haven’t achieved my business Coaching goals by then, that I give up on coaching, as a business.
There have been MANY TIMES on my Coaching journey when I’ve wanted to QUIT…Too many times to count when I’ve wanted to throw in the towel and just give up. But I haven’t. I can’t bring myself to do it. But WHY? Why haven’t I given up? Because I believe that these products – the programs, but most importantly, the COMMUNITY and support, can change someone’s life, just like it changed mine and I CANNOT give up on that.
I’ve set some really BIG goals for myself and my “deadline” is fast approaching. And I’ll admit, I’m scared, terrified actually, that I won’t achieve my goals. But I’m NOT going to let FEAR dictate my inaction any more. I have an amazing support system in my FIT FAMILY and fellow Coaches and I’m holding on tight to FAITH instead of fear. I believe in myself and I’m GOING FOR IT! Enough is enough already! No. More. Excuses.
So, here I go…Wish me LUCK won’t you?! You can WATCH me…Or, better yet, you can JOIN me! I say you JOIN ME!
