It wasn’t easy, but I spent 4 days on the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas as part of a trip I earned with my Beachbody business. I met Tony Horton, was treated like a queen, went snorkeling in the ocean, floated down the lazy river, had dinner with dolphins, worked out with celebrity trainers on the beach during sunrise and had a great time with a bunch of my closest friends! Like I said, it wasn’t easy…but I survived! 🙂
If you ever make it to Atlantis, I highly recommend you spend some time in Aquaventure and ride THE ABYSS!! Another highlight was the Leap of Faith water slide which is a 60-feet almost vertical drop. When you get on the slide it’s SO steep that you can’t see anything in front of you.
During the entire stay Beachbody treated us like kings and queens, and on the evening of our last dinner we were presented with a fireworks display unlike anything I’ve ever seen!! I got goosebumps and the hair literally stood up on the back of my neck. I just remember thinking that it was only two years ago that I decided to press play for the first time and how SO much in my life has changed since then. At the time it seemed like such a simple thing! It went from, “Let’s do this workout program so I can do a real pullup,” to “I’ll be quitting my full-time job in 2013!”
As I reflect back on those amazing few days I spent in paradise (literally!), I wonder if people see ALL the opportunities that Beachbody has to offer?! But you need to do your homework and choose the right path for YOU. Have you ever THOUGHT you wanted to pursue something, then realized it was actually NOT what you wanted?? A different career or a new business may SOUND good and look GREAT in your head…but research what the climb and the maintenance looks like – personally, physically, financially, etc.
You want to dream BIG, of course! But use good judgement when choosing what path will give you the life you want. I’m SO thankful I opened my eyes and listened to my sister’s advice and joined this business!! Believe me, I was VERY hesitant at first! I’m a very analytical person and I like to know ALL the details before I embark on a new journey but just like the water slide at Atlantis, sometimes you just need to put your trust in God and take a LEAP OF FAITH!
There are moments in life when we want to have ALL the answers before we make a decision but sometimes the slide is SO steep that it’s impossible to see what’s coming. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” Sometimes the bigger the goal the scarier it is…but either way, sometimes all you can do is jump on that slide and hold on for the ride of your life!
Do you feel like you’re pursuing the path that gets you the life you want? If not, what are you going to do about it? Five or ten years from now are you going to be in the same situation you are right now? If the answer turns out to be yes, how will that make you feel?
Corporate America seems “safe”, but the longer you’re in it, the more you realize, it’s not really that “safe” and your progress is always at someone else’s discretion….even when you think you’re the one making the decisions and choices. Even when you’re the CEO, there are others that can determine your faith in Corporate America. 😉
The thing is, only *YOU* can create the life you want (physically OR financially) but it all starts by surrounding yourself with like-minded people who will PUSH you to do MORE!! If you’re struggling with your fitness goals right now you need to ask yourself WHY? Is it because you’re not really working as hard as you should be? Is it because you don’t think your workouts are fun? Is it because it feels like everybody around you is dragging you down?
Only *YOU* know the answer and only *YOU* can fix it. I can give you all the tools you need to succeed but at the end of the day it’s up to *YOU* to do the work!
Do you work harder when you know that other people are holding you accountable? Maybe it’s time you joined one of my challenge groups or started a challenge group of your own? Either way, I can get you hooked up! Just lemme know by leaving a comment below or send me a message!
In addition to having LOTS of fun-in-the-sun in Atlantis, I also got some updates on some new products coming out soon…I’ll be posting more information in a few days about that! One of the things I’m MOST excited about it is a new 21-day detox program called the ULTIMATE RESET that is set for release on April 12. This is a program that was designed to GENTLY cleanse and RESET your entire body including all organs and your digestive tract. Think of it like P90X for your insides!!
This is NOT a starvation diet nor is it a stimulating or a “forced” cleanse. You will be eating REAL food on this program and you NOT be calorie-deprived. In the test groups so far, people on average lost 9 pounds and dropped 20-30 cholesterol points. However, the point of doing the reset is NOT to lose weight (although that will be a side effect for most people) but to simply rid your body of toxins, enhance the body’s ability to do what it needs to do naturally, and just FEEL BETTER!!! It is the all-natural alternative to harsh “cleanses” and starvation diets that returns your body to optimal health–naturally in just 3 weeks!
That’s it for now, I have soooooo much more information I want to share but I’ll save it for another day. 🙂
In the meantime, keep pressing play!
