You don’t have to let your past define who you are today, tomorrow or your future.
Change always starts with a vision. This is why it’s so important to surround yourself with positive influences and friends and people you look up too and who inspire you. Set goals – small and big – have an action plan in place and take the steps you need to in order to get there.
A little bit about me... I took FOREVER and EVER to decide to finally take the leap of faith and to follow my passion and actually go and train to be a fitness professional. I was terrified! I wasn't smart enough I told myself, I never truely believed I would do it (before I started that was!)
I have been doing aerobics in my living room since I was still in high school and never stopped exercising throughout my life ever really, so I don't know why it took me so many years to fulfil this passion I had! Lack of self belief is the only thing I can think of at the end of the day that had been holding me back.
But I did it. I LOVED it and I PASSED and I made amazing amazing friends, and the coaches and people I have met since training at MAX have helped me so much. Circle of influence is HUGE and so important. That training changed my life. The founders of the college changed my life and I will always be thankful I decided to change my future and create my own path and followed my passion and dream.
Remember – most successful people, sports stars, movie stars, health and fitness inspirations etc didn’t just wake up and have success fall into their lap. They didn’t just wake up and get a body like that. Anything worth having takes commitment, discipline, sacrifice and hard work.
The secret to success is to find someone who has achieved the things you want. Want a beautiful happy relationship? Find a beautiful happy couple… What to look great and feel great? Find a coach or a trainer. Want to have a successful career? Find the right influences and people who have done what you want to do and learn from them, read books, listen to podcasts, do what you need to do in order to get you to where you want to go in life.
Always be ok with change – BUT also be ok to make mistakes. It’s all part of the journey! I've made a tonne of mistakes and I'm sure you have too, but the thing is to learn from them and then grow from them to be better.
Life is too short to be unhappy and not be happy and passionate every day.
Step up, commit, grow and take action NOW!
Much Love... Andrea xxx
