If I didn’t realise it before I certainly do now; doing what you love matters!
Since the beginning of 2014, I have been on a mission to connect the dots and ensure my business reflects me and my passions. It was something that I originally thought was going to be difficult as I have a number of diverse loves. But as usual, the universe made sense of it all and has brought the thought to life!
What are my passions?
- Training, coaching & mentoring; interlinked but different. Being able to use these tools to enable and support my clients ensures they have a positive experience with me. They get the right type of help when they need it and so ensuring I continue my learning & development is key in delivering these services at a high level.
- Fitness; health & well-being have been part of my life since the age of 19 (excluding school). I spent most of my 22 years as an employee in the fitness business one way or another. I took up trained figure competitions in my 30s and have continued to enjoy looking after my well-being. Finding a business model to merge in with my existing business that allows me to help others live a more healthy & fun-filled life is a true blessing; more news on that to follow as I retrain and get all the ducks lined up in a row!
- Writing; this is something I have enjoyed since working for myself. Writing books, articles and training materials provides multiple ways to express my thoughts, opinions and knowledge. Getting to share it is empowering.
- Music; okay, I haven’t quite worked this one out yet but I do listen to music when I am writing and working out. It lifts me and puts me in a positive place… I love it!
Why Do They Matter?
Knowing my passions and finding ways to bring them into my daily life, business and personal, means I get to look forward to each and every day. I can’t remember the last time I woke up and thought “oh no, I’ve got to go and do…..”; it doesn’t happen.
Identify your passions. Find what you love and find ways to bring more of it into your life. You deserve to wake up feeling happy with the day ahead. You deserve to live a life that lifts your spirits. Why would you want to settle for anything less?
Doing what you love matters, not only for your personal enjoyment but it also means you are likely to give 100% of yourself to what you do, ensuring your customers have a great experience too. Now that’s what I call a win-win worth striving for!
