Four years later.... WOW. Is there anything left to say??
Four years ago I would have NEVER told you I would be where I am today. Never. I didn't believe it was possible for me. Yes, I loved my life as a stay at home mama and I knew that's right where I was meant to be, but I can't explain it... I just knew I was meant to do MORE.
So was it just coincidence that I stumbled upon ChaLEAN Extreme & Shakeology, saw it start to change my life & start as coach a month later?! I like to think there was a greater plan in place all along. Because I don't really believe in luck, I didn't just get lucky in this business. I worked hard for a long time with little to no real traction until something changed.
I had been a coach for nearly a year and a half when an event in my life had me grasping for more. Beyond my girls, beyond this little Beachbody job, beyond my marriage I needed something LARGER THAN LIFE to fill me up. I knew where I was being led. It was that following Sunday when I walked into church for the first time ever with an open heart. The first song started and like a flood the tears began. God had entered my life, my heart, my marriage, my family and for the first time in a very long time I felt complete and a sense of peace I cannot explain. In November 2012 I accepted Jesus as my Savior and gave God complete control of my life. For the first time in my life I had FAITH.
Faith not only in myself, but in my ability to lift up and believe in others. And well, you can see what a little FAITH will do for you, your family and your business. It's not really a surprise to me what happened over the course of 2013 & 2014 as I let God just take control and use my life & my story to inspire others. I became and "All In" Coach, because I knew that lives could be changed, I knew other moms & women could find themselves again through health & fitness, and I knew other coaches could change their lives with this business if they just had a little FAITH.
This truly is just the continuation of MY story. I feel like this business was designed for me, but was I an instant success? No. Did I make mistakes along the way? Yes. But for once in my life I didn't give up on something because other people were depending on ME. God doesn’t call the qualified, he QUALIFIES the CALLED. I had finally found a way to live my passion & purpose and to use my story & my struggle to show someone else it was possible. I feel SO BLESSED to have not only found my passion & my calling, but to have inspired so many others to RE-CLAIM their life, dream a little bigger and pay it forward. So where will I be in another year? Perhaps another 290% raise? Maybe. But I can tell you that wherever I am... it'll be right where He wants me to be!
