Yup, YOUR energy. Not your clients’ energy or how much stamina you have to run a marathon or compete in a bench press competition, but your vibe; how it feels to be around you; that energy. This post fits well with the mindset post I published a couple of days ago. Go back and read that one then come back here.
I received a Facebook message from a yoga teacher the other day who told me that I’m inspiring her to do new things and love herself. HOLY COW! That was probably the best compliment I’ve ever received from anyone. Yes, I’m an event planner so what does it matter that I’m inspiring anyone? Besides planning fitness and wellness events, I’m trying to inspire others to be healthy and active and happy. I’m trying to shift this notion that you need to be thin and toned to be your best self. I want to put some good out into the world and turns out, that’s exactly what I’m doing! YAHOO!
I just finished reading “You Are A Badass” about 20 minutes ago and I feel like I’m moving in right direction. How do I know? Well, I feel like I’m receiving positive attention and energy from the world on social media and in person. I am putting out positive vibes and getting them back tenfold and it’s kind of amazing.
I wasn’t always surrounded in good energy. When I joined the Fitness Junkies a few years ago I felt a spark. That ignited this flame that has welcomed people like Jill Payne and Lindsay Umlah into my life. This flame has opened my eyes to the knowledge that there are people ready and willing to help me succeed if I just let them. The world is not out to get me, it’s got my back! I think my hubby worries we’ve been living on the west coast too long as I wander through the woods, touching trees and forest bathing, and eating quinoa for breakfast instead of Corn Pops. Visualizing and manifesting my successes does sound a bit woo-woo, but it’s working for me, so why the heck not, eh?
How do you approach your future? Are you excited or terrified? Do you view failures and mistakes as opportunities to begin again a little wiser? Do you let yourself be vulnerable and open to the possibilities? Is this same uncertain energy the way you approach your business, too? Could this be what’s holding you back from growing bigger and better? Take some time to really think about this concept: do some reading, talk to some people, take a long, hard look at yourself and the energy you put out there. Now, are you fueling the fire of your passion or are you too busy getting in your own way?
