Happy Monday –
This weekend I was in San Diego to spend time learning from author Brendon Burchard at his High Performance Academy.
The ticket to his event was a birthday gift from my dear friend Sonya (the owner of several Boot Camp locations in Northern California).
True story, I didn’t really want to attend the event.
I love events.
I love personal development but I really wanted to throw a party or go on a trip- strictly for fun- not for work or education.
BUT she convinced me that attending an event for Free (thank you Airmiles and Sonya) on motivation, taking one’s self to the next level etc. was right up my alley…
She was right, of course.
But the playful side of me really just wanted to play…
A lot of material was covered and I did get in some fun time at the beach so I think I managed the best of both worlds. 🙂
The author taught us many things this weekend- several of which I’ll share over the course of the next few weeks and months- but the biggest one I wanted to leave you to contemplate was the following:
What do you want for your life?
How do you want to live?
How do you want to be remembered?
How are you setting your standard?
Too often we set our goals, dreams and aspirations based on what we believe to be just slightly beyond possible or solidly possible.
This is setting the bar too low.
We might have a “set point” or “ceiling” on what we believe we can accomplish that comes from our parents, our teachers or our co-workers. This set point might be too low.
If you had asked me 5 years ago if I would have 2 fitness studios with 18 employees I would have said, possibly.
But if you had asked me 10 years ago I would have said no.
10 years ago, I didn’t know how to dream and I had lost hope for a future of possibility. It took really hitting an awful place in my life to see that life didn’t have to be what it was, it could be a lot better.
Whatever you want for your fitness, your health and your life is possible.
Remember to dream.
