You all know how important family is to me... That includes my fitness family! I respect what they are doing in this facility and I am excited that they have asked me to be a part of it! We have some top-notch trainers here and passion is oozing out the doors. You cannot beat that!
While I have been taking my hiatus from teaching, I have not stopped thinking of my sweet friends from classes. The other day I gathered the signs that I would place at the front desk before my classes, and removed them from my car. I sat them on my bed and just stared at them. I looked at each sign and reflected on each class it represented; thinking about the students, milestones and good times had. And then it happened...
Let's learn from the arrow and the science from the arrow. When things do not go our way, find a way to find the positive.
I took some time this weekend to update my vision board. Instead of including longer term goals, I decided to include my goals for this year.
It has been just over a year since my FOCUS has been on PASSION. Although, I sprinkle it throughout entries, I have not really dedicated an entry on the importance of passion. I ran across a quote this week and it just made me smile. "Passion is the GENESIS of genius." - Galileo Galilei
I will continue to educate myself so that I can make my classes better for my students. And the next time someone calls me certifiable, I'll just smile and nod.
I want to say "thank you" to my wonderful students. This week was full of "UGH" moments.... All outside of the gym. The world "got me beat down." Ha, ha. I worked hard to take my own advice and not allow these incidents define my days.
Afterwards, I was able to speak to these wonderful women. I shared my journey with one woman. I explained that it was my husband that gave me the courage and encouraged me to quit my full-time corporate job and pursue fitness full throttle. And then she asked the question...
As most of you have heard by now, "The Greatest" passed away this weekend. He was not a perfect man, but he was a strong athlete that overcame a great deal in his life. I was familiar with the heart of one of his daughter's as well, who is a social worker. I think anyone that has done any research on this man will say that this man was no stranger to passion. To be a champion, you must have passion.
