Have you seen the movie or heard the story 127 hours? The one where the rock climber’s arm gets stuck?
The story was spellbinding and effective: Either he could die to protect his arm, or go through incredible amounts of pain and change his life forever by cutting off his arm, in order to find literal freedom and save his life.
I’ve thought about this before but wanted to share what stuck with me most. And it’s not the fact of cutting off an arm. It’s the ROCK.
Metaphorically, I had a rock on my arm for years. I was afraid to share my health journey and my nutrition plans and my workouts. Why? Because I was afraid of being made fun of for trying to better myself. Read that again. I was afraid that an opinion would hurt me…so I was hiding the fact that I was making myself better (physically and emotionally). That’s when I decided to stop hiding myself and share my stories. By sharing my own day to day life, I can inspire others. I can grow my team of women and help remove their rock as well! Since becoming a Coach, I am more fulfilled that I ever have been. I not only help women with their own insecurities and grow their minds and bodies, I get to be paid doing it! Like WHAT?! How did I get so lucky to find something I’m passionate about AND can make extra money? If you’ve got a heart that you’re yearning to share, drop me a ❤ and let’s move that boulder out of your way.
My rock was opinions that were creating self-doubt. What is your rock?
