Some days I sit and ask myself how in the world did I ever get to the spot that I am at now. How in the world did I ever become lucky enough to meet such amazing individuals that I would have never met before all of this.
And the answer is SIMPLE, I took a leap of faith! When I said YES to being a coach I had no idea ((if I can be completely honest here)) what the HECK I was getting into but I know one thing is certain, I don't regret a day of it in my life!! .
Its not easy and it definitely is not for everyone but it sure is worth it! See I learned long ago the day I decided to have a baby at 15 that nothing in this life worth having or fighting for is going to be easy. The easy thing with having a baby at 15 would have been to let my mom raise the baby, to quit school and be a statistic and live off of the system, To never dream or believe I could have more because of my reality...that would have been the easy thing but as you all know that was not the path I took. .
So how does this relate to coaching? It's not easy motivating others when you struggle to motivate yourself most days. It's not easy getting others to believe in themselves and see what you see in them. It's not easy building a team of rockstars that see the same vision and dreams that you do. None of the this is easy but I NEVER expected it to be! .
I am that girl that if I see potential or opportunity in something no matter what it may be I will stop at nothing, I will fight for the vision I see through all the obstacles. A few short years ago I seen no hope in recovery from my eating disorder and look at me now, haven't abused my body nor thought of it in years and why? This company has taught me to love myself, BE MYSELF, surround myself with warriors JUST LIKE ME so tell me WHY in the world would I quit on that just because something is "hard"?!?!? Look ya'll........ #cancer is hard, losing a loved one is hard, losing your home is hard, walking into a job that makes you feel dead inside is hard!! This is not hard..... it just takes heart, compassion, hard work, drive, and the never give up spirit and if you have that.... Like Uncle Sam says... "I want you"
