We were honored to be guest speakers at our local middle school & to present today for career day. Dave presented on many different job opportunities in the corporate business world, shared what he does & I presented on what a Fitness & Lifestyle Coach is.
Hopefully we made a positive impact, inspired someone to pursue their dreams & that they heard our messages loud & clear; when you work hard, are patient, push through any obstacles that come your way & you never quit...anything is possible. We also strived to share how important education is & education is something that can never be taken away from you. Also sharing not to chase a career path based on the dollar signs, to chose something you can be passionate about, that will bring you happiness & something you can envision yourself doing for the rest of your life that you will enjoy.
We both love motivating, inspiring & encouraging others. I am hoping that's what we were able to accomplish today!
I shared with them one of my favorite inspirational videos with them from Inky Johnson, football fans may know this story, it will leave you feeling motivated. https://youtu.be/AVq5lc6sVVo
Three years ago I would have never thought I would be on this career path. I owned my own interior decorating business, I loved what I did but I didn't feel fulfilled & that bothered me. I never imagined this is the path I would be on at any point of my life, but I am incredibly grateful I listened to myself & went for it. I can not imagine myself ever doing anything else. I am excited to be on this journey, have the opportunity to share this with others & chase after all those things written on my goal board.
It blows my mind that I use to let fear & other people's opinions of me hold me back from pursuing the things I wanted to go after in this life. Not anymore. There is something so exhilarating about being Fearless, going after the life you want to live & watching your hard work pay off.
Don't ever think it's too late to change your path, none of us should leave this earth with regrets. None of us should dread days of our life because of our job. Besides how awesome would it be to share with your kids what your dreams are, to show them how hard you have to work to achieve them & then celebrating with them when you do! Pretty amazing life lesson we should all get the chance to experience!!
Whatever keeps pulling on your heart strings, whatever you keep dismissing in your mind, I hope this message can give you the courage to go after what you want in this life!
Make it count!
