“Champions are made from something deep inside them- a desire, a dream, a vision.

What do you want?

What do you want?

What do you want?

I remember doing an experimental exercise in a personal development training I took in 2013. In this particular exercise, a group of us were split into pairs where for 3 Min straight would ask our partner, “ What do you want” and repeated this question over and over until the 3 min was up. After 3 min, we would switch roles and the other partner would do the same thing. Basically, I had no time to think of what I wanted, especially when someone was yelling in my face repeatedly, “what do you want, what do you want, what do you want.” This experiment was meant to put you on the spot and allow you to feel what it is you truly want to happen in your life. Literally, no time was given for you to think. I yelled, I cried, I laughed as I vocalized all my wants and desires. It was in that very moment I figured out who I was, my purpose, my vision, and what I wanted in my life.

 Growing up, I had self-image issues, had no self-confidence, worried about what others thought of me. I lost my sense of purpose and direction when I lost my mom at the age of 18. I hung out with the wrong crowd who drank and partied every weekend. I was in toxic abusive relationships. I was going nowhere in my life.

A good friend of mine at the time saw my struggles and introduced New Era to me, a personal development training program. It was upon graduating from this program that I saw my self-worth, realized that I had a powerful voice, learned to love myself, and decided to take a risk and leave my current job in the financial industry to pursue my heart. My heart is in helping people live a fit and healthy lifestyle.
 
Being in the health and fitness industry, I found my purpose, my dream, and what I am set out to do in this lifetime. I am here to save lives and share the importance of taking care of yourself from the inside out with the world. My vision became clear on who I was and am, how I wanted to live my life, who I wanted in my life, and what I wanted to achieve. My dreams flourished into visions so big that I didn’t even know how I was going to make them into a reality. Never in my lifetime did I imagine wanting to compete in a bikini bodybuilding show, start my own health and fitness brand, go global with my business, and free up time to do what I want to do with the people that matter most. I thought, “ Hey I’ll be working for a big commercial gym for the rest of my life.” The fire inside of me grew, my vision for what I want to achieve for myself, my life, my future family, my loved ones, and for this world grew and is still growing. MY VISION IS SO CLEAR.
 
The first step to achieving any success is having a clear vision. You have to know exactly what it is you want and choose to commit to your lifelong dreams. How can you work towards a dream, a goal, a vision if you don’t know what that is? What does that vision look like? What is your why? How would your life look like when you achieve this goal, this vision? Look in the mirror and be honest with yourself. Are you willing to do the work? It all starts with you and creating a CLEAR VISION.
 
I would love to know what your vision is. Please comment below or DM me and share what it is you want.
