Just Show Up

regret-that-workout

 

The secret to success in fitness and in life is consistently showing up. Often we blame out lack of resources for to taking action (the greatest of which is time.) Remember it’s not your resources, but your resourcefulness that determines your destiny. 

Today I invite you to meet yourself where you are and with what you have. Keep in mind it’s progress and not perfection that lights you up and makes you feel the most alive. 

 

Take away: Show up. Get resourceful. Take action. Notice how good this feels.

The Power of Rituals

power of rituals

 

When it comes to transforming your body and your life, I offer your rituals become your destiny.

This week I invite you to take a closer look at the fitness/wellness ritual that has best served you (such as starting your day with healthy breakfast routine) and one ritual that has historically stolen from you (such as mindless late night snacking/binging.)

Your assignment: Take a few minutes and write about how you have integrated your empowering ritual into your life. Success leaves clues. How did you move this ritual from a “should” to a must? What was the driving force? How good does it feel to engage in this ritual? Why?

Next write about your limiting ritual. How is this ritual stealing from you? Your health? Relationships? Self-esteem? How would your boy/health/life transform if you replaced this ritual with something that empowers you?

*Key question: What small step can you take today to replace this ritual with a routine that both feels good and keep you aligned with your health/wellness goals /values?

Keep it fun and keep it simple. Notice how good this feels!

Small Things Great Love

heart

 

 

Coach Erik here:

 We can never heal all of the sadness and pain in other people’s lives. We can’t carry their load and produce miracles overnight. But we can bring a cup of cool water to a thirsty soul or a scoop of laughter to a lonely heart. We can give someone the gift of our full presence and the miracle of unconditional love.

 Take away: Mother Theresa once said, “We cannot do great things only small things with great love.” I invite you to something small with great love today. Notice how good this feels.

Take The Plunge!

Boldness has power, genius and magic in it. Begin it now!

These famous words by Johann van Goethe, rung in my ear as I dove head first into the frigid Atlantic Ocean for my 42nd birthday Sunday. While the icey water stung my flesh and shocked my body I felt alive, vital and empowered!

My birthday polar plunge was a symbolic start to a personal challenge this year; be bold, dig deep and take inspired action!

Take away: When it comes to stepping up to a new challenge or an old obstacle this year, I invite you to lean in and take inspired action. When you do people, events and resources you never dreamed of will come your way.

What’s the point of being alive if we don’t at least try to do something remarkable? Be bold, dig deep and take the plunge!

Need a Boost? Do This.

 

 good mood

Coach E here:

Food is perhaps the most abused anxiety drug and exercise is perhaps the most underutilized antidepressant.

Take away: If you need a boost get moving. Emotion is created by motion. As little as two minutes of movement can change your biochemistry and can give your day a hit of awesome!

Get after it!

 

How did you get your hit of awesome today? Post below and let us know!

Your Most Valuable Currency

usagoldcoins

 

The effect you have on other people is the most valuable currency there is. At the very end, all that you’ve accomplished and accumulated will fade away. What will remain are the moments of honest, brave and intimate connection that will live in the hearts of others forever. 

Take away: Be somebody that makes other people around you feel like somebody. Shine your light freely on as many people as you can today.

Anger Can be Healing. Here’s How.

Courage lion-771482

Coach Erik here:

Belying most anger is hurt, vulnerability and sadness. The challenge is most of us suppress or displace our anger, which can lead to either external rage or prolonged internal suffering, disease and pain. 

 I offer the “courageous Lion’s roar” is the decision to understand the wisdom of your anger and express it in a powerful and healing way.

 I invite you to do this by getting in touch with the feelings behind the anger. For example, recognizing that what you are really feeling hurt, lonely or disconnected etc. and expressing that to yourself and/or others. I offer there is great power profound healing in vulnerability and expressing your truth. 

Notice how good it feels to own the feelings behind the anger and how freeing it feels to express your truth in a direct and constructive way. Once you do, you are free to nourish and resolve your feelings as opposed to succumbing to the immediate (and often) destructive needs of your anger.
