Why?

10 Nov

Why do you do what you do? That day job that you go to every M-F…..why do you show up everyday? Is it because you enjoy your work? Are you passionate about your work, or are you spending those 40+ hours per week strictly for a pay check and maybe some benefits.

When I was a kid, I had always envisioned having a career that I loved. My parents both worked full time jobs, and while I’m grateful to them for providing a great childhood and home life, I had in the back of my mind that I didn’t want to spend my working years that way. I don’t believe that either of them felt passionate about their work or looked forward to a Monday.

However, as time goes on, and life happens, you have to make ends meet. Like many others, I ended up taking a job in order to help support my family and pay our bills. Years later, still working at this job, I realized I was falling into the exact path I promised myself I would not go on! However, I didn’t know how to switch paths….I just knew I wanted MORE out of my life.

About 18 months ago I was introduced to Team Beachbody. I joined because I liked the perks that came with the membership. I knew there was great income potential, but I didn’t put much thought into that aspect. I just really enjoyed helping people…..then, little by little I was seeing growth in my business. It was like an ah-ha moment. I saw others around me being able to stay home with their family all thru this Beachbody opportunity. So my mindset changed and I began to think…

WHY NOT ME?

That is the day I drew a line in the sand and decided to take my coaching business a little more seriously. I created this why board to help remind me of all of the reasons that I am working so hard for. Seeing this picture each day gives me hope and gives me a purpose to keep on working towards my ultimate goal of being able to stay home and be with my family and have a career that I enjoy and feel passionate about!

So again I ask you why you do what you do? What are you working towards? Is that day job that you’re going to each day taking you a step closer to what your own goals and visions are for yourself and your family? If not, think about it. You deserve the best out of life and it is up to you to take those turns on your own path to get to your ultimate destination.

Stop limiting yourself and dream BIGGER!

Dreams

2 Nov

One of the ‘symptoms’ I am experiencing with pregnancy is weird dreams.  I have always been able to remember my dreams – but I feel like since being pregnant – I experience more vivid dreams…

 

I always remember them precisely when I wake up, and then little by little they fade away.  I am also noticing that my dreams are incorporating a lot of people/friends fro the past, such as middle school/high school friends.  I keep on thinking that I need to write them down in the morning while its fresh in my mind…

Last night I had a dream about a promotion being offered to fly down to Florida.  In my dream it was something that I had won. The “prize” was getting the flight for $300.  I guess in the back of my mind I have been wanting to plan a trip to South Florida for a while, so I take it that my dream was my subconscious telling me its time!  So the crazy part is that my Husband (without me saying ANYTHING) took the initiative to search flights, etc. today and guess how much it is for both of us to fly down?!  YES, THREE hundred dollars!!  Is that crazy or what?!?!

Well, from now on, I am going to try to document my dreams first thing in the AM when I have a good one!  Maybe I can even do voice text to myself just so that it jogs my memory later on…

Do you remember having any weird dreams during pregnancy?  Or do you regularly have vivid dreams?  Are you ever able to correlate them with something going on in your real life?
