A friend told me today that life is very cyclical and to live in the moment of today and really feel the emotions that are attached to this stage of my life. Life will always have its up and downs, but it’ so very important to know that even in the darkest of days….
Hahaha; Annie’s - The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow just popped into my head:
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
There'll be sun
Just thinkin' about tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow
'til there's none
When I'm stuck with a day that's grey and lonely
I just stick up my chin and grin and say oh
The sun will come out tomorrow
So you got to hang on 'til tomorrow, come what may!
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow
You're only a day away
This takes me into my goals - they say the first year of any business is the hardest. For me the hardest part about building this dream is the shortness of hours in a day! I finally, for the first time in my life, feel like I have found my groove, maybe more importantly I have found my calling and every day I wake up grateful for this opportunity, no matter what challenges may lay ahead.
ALWAYS REMEMBER YOUR WHY!
I’ve been working with a few of my clients these past few weeks about dialing in their why, and then it dawned on me that I need to do the same for my business. What’s Lil’Missfit’s WHY?
Why? Because I love teaching people how to become better versions of themselves. Showing people their true potential, and making people feel like there is always someone in their corner.
Why? Because there is no better feeling in the world then when you see someone look at themselves in the same light as the people who already love them.
Why? Because I want to make the world a better place and to me that means happier, healthier and stronger.
Why? Because I want to be more then a trainer, I want to be a coach! I want people to see my integrity and know that I will always try my best to practice what I preach, and live by the words I teach.
Why? Because the people who have come to me for help have impacted my life just as much, if not more, then I have impacted theirs.
I am beyond grateful to have this opportunity and to have had the chance to work with and meet some of the most extraordinary people and for all the new members that will someday join this amazing group.
Reflecting over this past year or even having a first year would not have happened without my team. These two gals are the exact definition of the great people who entered my life exactly when they were meant to. These two were my very first Guinea pigs, I had zero experience, but they believed in me. They have seen my teachings since The Canada Food Guide was my only resource to learning macros, understanding sport performance and the true science behind healthy eating, clean eating and weight loss. Over the years these two have put their heart and soul into getting their results, questioning my every teaching, always critiquing and allowed me to guide them (sometimes blindly) into the women they are now. These two have helped me believe in myself. And even though it was supposed to be me teaching them, they have taught me how to be a confident leader. They have also taught me self-awareness. They are true friends - always there to remind me of the things I suck at (the best of friends are always honest a**holes, lol), what things I should leave to the “professionals” aka them, and that no matter what happens in life we are the dream team, we are three smart cookies that all have different strengths and together can take on anything.
What’s the saying here? When women support each other, incredible things happen. This is undoubtedly another one of my reasons WHY?!
Since we started, “The Beast Program” has tripled in size. We’ve expanded from one class of eight beasts to three classes. I’ve added other group trainings into the mix and gained even more one on one clients. It’s amazing watching the word spread and the new friends I continue to make. I once had a trainer tell me I should not be friends with my clients, but for me I believe this is why my program has taken itself to this level in such a short amount of time. I believe in order to properly coach someone you need to learn about who they are on the inside, find what holds them back and, most importantly, what drives them. I love the relationships I have built in this last year and the lifetime friends I have made. To me it’s more then just a workout program. I want to give people the tools they can use to crush anything life throws at them and to know there is always someone in their corner. To be a MissFit you have to find the fire inside and to me that’s what it’s all about!!
