Why you won’t catch me promising you a hot body.

Why you won’t catch me promising you a hot body.

If I had started my business in my younger years, I have to believe that it would look very different than it does today.  When I was younger, it would have been all about helping people look good.  After all, that’s what most people want- they want to look good because THEN (and only then) they will be able to feel good.

But, after hours and hours of sitting with people, I learned more than I ever could of imagined.

  • From the woman who spent 6 years caring for her terminally ill child, I realized that we can learn how to live Conceptual closeup environment photo of hands holding a young plwith uncertainty.  When we can’t control whether our child lives or dies, we need to count our blessings every day and be present in each possible moment.
  • From the man who’s wife left him to raise their 3 children alone,  I learned that we can allow ourselves to vulnerable and ask for help.  We don’t have to do it all or be it all for everyone- never letting our weakness or fear show.
  • From the woman who’s husband died suddenly when they were at the prime of their life,  I learned that we can find our value outside of our circumstances.  We are worthy of love no matter who is loving us at the time.
  • From the young girl who just wants to find the man of her dreams and settle down, I learned that loving yourself is the key to opening your heart to love and be loved by others.
  • And from the woman after a double mastectomy, facing the insecurity of her cancer, I learned that feeling whole is a journey to the inside- to yourself.  And you may not have the opportunity to take that journey if you are always living outside of yourself.

So although I know that promising pounds of weight loss and unleashing the best kept secrets of exercise are the things that can really sell for a business, I think I will stand my ground and stick to passing on the lessons that life has taught me.

Here are the things that I will promise:

  • A place where you are wholly loved and accepted
  • The opportunity to dig down and realize the strength that lies within youRed Heart On Wooden Background
  • The keys to working on the inside- to develop your (unshakable) strong core.
  • Increased energy to live your life fully and be present for those micro-moments of joy.

Besides, chances are that there is already someone in your life who thinks that you are so much more than a hot body.  Someone who thinks you are wonderful inside and out.  What I promise is to help give you the ability to start believing them!
