There is an amazing thing in this world that’s an undeniable force. I sometimes lose sight of it, but I just received a reminder yesterday in the mail. This amazing force that I’m speaking of is the Law of Attraction which is the law that states like energy attacks like energy. I know it seems too simple to be true, but I’m here today to tell you that, yes, it is that simple and no it’s not too simple to be true. It just is!
Some of you may already know this about me, but for those of you who don’t, I’m a health and fitness coach for Beach Body and I love it. I love the interactions I have with the challengers of our monthly challenge group. I love participating in the challenges myself and I love the accountability. It’s an amazing group of people who are all focused on the same goal of gaining and maintaining a healthy lifestyle of eating healthy, exercising and creating balance in our lives. Not one of us is perfect and the support we get from each other inspires us to stay focused on our goals even when we don’t feel like it, even if/when we slip out of participation for a time. I’m here to tell you it’s the most amazingly supportive and accepting group of people I’ve ever had the privilege of working with.
What does this have to do with the Law of Attraction? Well, I’ll tell you. I’ve been writing this blog for a while now and my whole reasoning behind it was to connect with people and raise awareness of the fact that we all have choices. We can look at the circumstances of our lives and we can choose to focus on the good or we can choose to focus on the bad. The most excellent news is, it’s all a personal choice based on what makes YOU feel better. So, what makes me feel better is making a difference in people’s lives. I love hearing feedback from my readers. I love giving support in my challenge groups. I love lifting people up and helping them to see the good in life. I thought Beach Body was a perfect fit for me. Coaching people and helping them to make choices in the direction of health and fitness. That helps people feel better about themselves, right? Well guess what. I was right!
I love the coaching and there for a little while I was hung up on reaching a certain level of accomplishment, Emerald Coach. I felt like I was beating myself up with disappointment every time I checked my level of accomplishment in my coaching business. I wore myself out, which I tend to do when I start something new that I’m very excited about. I did the same thing with my blog. Everyday, I’d check to see how many views I had or how many subscriber’s I had and the same thing, disappointment because the numbers weren’t where I wanted them to be.
Well, guess what! I’m learning about balance and being gentle with myself. I’m learning that FULL STEAM AHEAD is not always the most strategic move. So, I’ve shifted gears and I’ve been doing the coaching thing for the fun that I have in doing it. I’ve been writing my blog for the joy of it because I enjoy it and guess what happened,…. I went out to the mail box the other day and received the acknowledgment that I had achieved the Emerald status in my coaching business. I couldn’t believe it! I had been striving so hard for this and then one day when I wasn’t even paying attention to the details, BAM!! There it is!!!
How did I do it? I focused on the fun of it. I kept my focus on the things I love about coaching. Same with my blog I quit looking at the numbers and then one day I decided to check and all of a sudden my views were over 18,000.
Life is supposed to be fun people. That’s the secret to life and the secret to success, follow the fun and BE CONSISTENT!!!
