I got an email this morning from the manager of my gym that my proposal to teach a weight loss and lifestyle change seminar is a go! Also, there is alot of enthusiasm for the couch to 5k and half marathon training academy as well. With the running groups I will need to obtain a certification first for liability reasons. The cert I did have is not on the list of acceptable ones to have but there is no worries there, I know I can do it so I am not concerned.
I feel like I have really reached a milestone. I have always wanted to do something like this and it is a natural niche for me. I have always felt an inward calling for this and I am simply stepping through the door that has opened for me. When it was meant to be, you don't have to kick the door in, you simply step through after you patiently wait for the opportunity to arise.
A mans gift will make room for him and I really feel that I have a gift for really connecting with people on a heart level and helping them see what is possible. There is no feeling in the world like watching someone get sparked. I know the feeling. When you are severely overweight, your whole existence revolves around what you CAN'T do. I CAN'T fit into this booth, I CAN'T climb these stairs, I CAN'T fit into my favorite -------, fill in the blank.
The transformation happens when CAN'T turns into CAN. Once someone gets a sense of empowerment from realizing that they CAN, watch out... they will keep coming back for more. Like a kid with a new toy, they start pushing their limits and then rejoice as they watch them fall. It's the new addiction. Something that food will never be able to compete with. I want to be there to see it. The positive energy from it all feeds my desire to keep going forward with my own transformation.
I am energized.
I have always studied but in a hap-hazard fashion because it has always been without a real purpose. Now that I have a reason and an open door, it feels so natural, like I am doing something I am meant to do.
I got this.
