I was having lunch with my friend Laura today (you should check her out, she’s one cool chica http://www.lauraroeder.com/), and we were talking about our businesses…big surprise there! We are both really passionate about helping women achieve rockstar status in their lives.
Believe it or not, being and expert pilates instructor, nutritionist and holistic weight loss coach is not what gets me all giddy. Yes, I do all those things and they are just tools I use to work my real joy and passion.
What makes my heart sing and my body sizzle is helping other women just like you, see how flippin’ awesome you are, get the smokin’ hot body you deserve and a boomin’ business to boot.
This juicy mix is my crack cocaine.
Weight loss is easy. It’s as simple as discovering your metabolic type and doing the right combination of exercise (okay, okay, there may be some other things to look at, like hormone imbalances or food intolerances, but those are easy to uncover too).
What’s not so easy is having the courage to remove the layer of “padding” you’ve been carrying around to protect you… from what… only you can know. This deeper layer “stuff” is why so many women are unmotivated. To be honest though, it doesn’t really matter. It’s an old, boring worn out “woe is me” story that even your bff is sick of.
When I get my hands on a woman (don’t even go there with your dirty mind) and have the opportunity to mentor her in all these areas – nutrition, fitness and mindset ~ this is when magic happens.
The truth is ladies, there is a common thread that is woven throughout your physical body, your relationships and your business and/or career success. This recurring theme can no longer be ignored.
If you’re wondering why you can’t fit into your jeans and why you can’t seem to land those big high-dollar clients or keep getting passed up for a promotion ~ stop with the blame game and ask yourself this:
- What beliefs do I have about my body that keep me unmotivated?
- What limiting beliefs prevent me from taking more risks?
- How can I identify areas where I self-sabotage? Do I overeat? Under eat?
- Do I get sick or injured right before I’m about to make a big leap in my life?
- Am I afraid to be visible?
- Is my weight an excuse to not really go for my dreams?
- How can I take responsibility for my own body and my career and my business success?
I understand that not everyone is going to relate to this. We all know women who are overweight, radically successful and are super happy. Think Oprah.
However, if you do relate to this and you know deep down that for you, the shape of your body and the success of your business have parallels… then I encourage you to make a commitment to do one thing this week you’ve been putting off. Even if it’s cleaning out your sock drawer. Do one thing that will move you closer to making a giant leap into being the daredevilista you were born to be.
LOVE and HUGS,
