Sometimes personal development comes in the throws of chaos, sometimes it comes from hitting rock bottom, sometimes it comes from finally making the decision to be the best that you can be. When I decided to start the M.O.B. Project, it was because I was letting myself down.
I had become complacent.
Not only that, I had come to just BE, as status quo and I had become tired, overweight and just blah. Even my brain was suffering because I felt for lack of a technical term.... just plain yucky. This wasn't who I was and I was unsure how I let myself get this way. Complacent.
It's not status quo... its just plain ol' laziness. I was being lazy. I didn't want to put in the time or effort to change my life.
In the other parts of my coaching I talk about let the inside and outside match. Are you happy with how you feel inside and outside? Truly feel like you are your best? If you can say yes... then man... you are my hero. Not only that... tell me how you wrap your head around that. Everyone has struggles of many kinds, everyone of us have demons in our closets that stop us from living a healthy and happy life. However, when we stop trying to better ourselves, let's all just lay down. THAT is the epitome of complacent. Why do we do this?
My last piece as we have talked about before was my body. I wasn't eating enough, I wasn't active enough, I wasn't paying attention to the fact that I'm aging and that I had to get my shit together.
When I made those changes in my life, I couldn't believe that I had changed my healthy, my body and my outlook on how I presented myself had now come full circle. Walk the walk and talk the talk. I want the work I do to be relevant, I want to make a difference in people's lives. That's why I started the TAKE MY HAND CHALLENGE, to encourage others not only to help themselves but to help others. I'm changing the name to the TAKE MY HAND INITIATIVE because it's going to be the premise of my life long ambition in all that I do. One step at a time... that is why I started with nutrition. When people eat properly, they feel better, mentally, emotionally and physically. When people feel great in these areas then they want to keep going... keep improving themselves. The TAKE MY HAND INITIATIVE is about providing support for all of those that we love instead of tearing them down.
Let's stand together and prop each other up.
This goes far beyond any separate program I'm running but a combination of all of it. It's about being actively present for others. Too gushy for you... then get off my train. It starts with me, it starts with you. When people find this too "FEEL GOOD" that just means that they, you aren't ready to be a part of this bigger picture in helping others.
Building support, building teams and building communities is so far beyond losing weight together, or donating to a charity.... what are you doing personally to help others, where you actually reach out and actively care and support them in what they are trying to do. Ask yourself what your answer was the last time someone you know asked you to support them in the changes they were trying to make in their lives. We don't have to agree with them, some changes are good...others not so good. It is not for us to judge, but to love and support.
So whether you are looking to find out who you are inside and out or that you're asking people to help you along your journey, I hopefully can help in one way, shape or form. I AM YOUR COACH.
Let's take it in baby steps together, gather your herd and support one another.
This series I'm running is about wellness , improving both your body and mind through nutrition and through personal development on your mindset. We are digging deep. Some of you will be to afraid to do one, never mind two, but the truth is you need to have both to be successful in the changes you want to make in your life. Don't be scared. I'm here to TAKE YOUR HAND... I will guide and help you along the way. This is however a two way street, I cannot help you if you do not let me be a part of your journey. Tell me how you best to help you and support you .. sometimes for some people that means just letting them be, but they know you're there if they need you. Some people are afraid to ask for help or to admit that they are struggling...there is no judgement here. We all struggle when making changes in our lives, sometimes having someone there to help you dust off your knees when you fall down is what it is all about. Be an active participant in our journey.
MASQUERADE NO MORE.
Be who you want to be and start making those changes that you need to be who you want to be.
Let's start off at ground zero.
