If you would have asked me one year ago if I truly believed in my ability to make my BIG DREAMS come true I would have told you I didn’t.
You see, one year ago we had just moved to Washington and our life was a complete disaster. All of the stability I had grown so used to had disappeared when D left active duty. We were in a place that scared me. We didn’t have a home, we didn’t have jobs and we didn’t know what our future would hold. All of those life changes knocked me down and filled me with so much fear.
I knew I needed to help my family financially but I didn’t want to go back to work and leave my kids. I needed something that would let me put my family first because sacrificing them wasn’t something I was willing to do.
It was in those dark moments that I decided I would do everything I could to grow my Beachbody business. I was scared because I had been a coach for 18 months and hadn’t had any success. I felt scared to jump back into it because I was afraid people would judge me. I had a million excuses to why it wouldn’t work but I did it anyways.
It’s been one year since I made that decision and our circumstance aren’t perfect. This last year has been very hard on me. We still don’t have the stability I crave. The fears I have about our future still creep into my brain but I’m fighting with everything I can to give us stability.
While our circumstances haven’t changed completely, I have changed. I have grown more in the last year and my belief in my ability to make my dreams come true is strong.
On year ago I made a dream board and one of the things I dreamt of is coming true today. I wanted to create a team of coaches and go to summit. Over the last year I have created a team of 35 personally sponsored coaches and I’m going to summit today! I will be in Nashville with 25,000 other coaches. I will be recognized on stage for my accomplishments in the last year and I can’t even believe it. I feel so blessed to have this opportunity and a year ago I wouldn’t have even believed it was possible.
Even when you’re scared and filled with fear, you have to be brave with your life.
