I have been reading and listening to a lot of Jim Rohn lately. One of his quotes has really been on my mind a lot lately.
All human beings have the ability to transform like a caterpillar emerging from its cocoon and taking to the sky. This is the essence of personal development: taking information in, becoming inspired by it and allowing yourself to be transformed and, in turn, inspire others as well. Seeing what you can become and what you can help others to become is the major challenge in life.
I have bipolar disorder and a life that reflects years of struggle with that illness. But I also have a strong desire for self-improvement — to become much more than I am right now. A year ago I had the good fortune to discover a company called Beachbody, and I began doing their workout programs. I started with Power 90 and progressed from there to doing P90X and then Insanity and then Body Beast. I have changed my body vastly for the better and now I am determined to do the same with my life. I currently live with my father in Anchorage, Alaska. I am lucky to be able to live here and take advantage of the outdoor activities that are so readily available here. But I want more out of life. I want to be able to support myself and to be able to help my parents when the time comes that they can no longer work and do for themselves. I also want to help others do what I was able to do and lose weight and get back in shape. That’s why I chose to become a Beachbody Coach. There is an income opportunity there in the form of an MLM business opportunity and I am interested in the money, but I’m more interested in the satisfaction that I know comes from helping others improve their lives.
I’m just beginning my journey with the business end of Beachbody, but I’m excited to see what I can become and what I can help others to become!
