Make it Happen Monday

Make it Happen Monday is here!

I want to use some anecdotal motivation and open up to you guys today about a conversation that changed my life. No, seriously, it did.

If you have been following me for a longer while, you may remember a post I wrote recounting my experience with a personal trainer. We had a conversation one day that completely changed the game for me.

We were taking a breather and chatting about our dream jobs. He asked what mine was, and I told him I would love to be a Wellness Coach.

And he said: so why don’t you do it?

Guys, truly, I couldn’t come up with an answer. But I did respond “Ah, nah, I can’t do that”. Of course, I could have come up with plenty of excuses, none of which he would have let slide without questioning.

He said: why not you?

And it that moment I realized, that there was no real reason why I couldn’t do it.

Being called on my bullshit never felt so good, and from that moment forward it is the only thing I’ve dedicated my time to. As soon as I realized it was possible for me, I have been eating, sleeping, working, and breathing just this one ideal. And literally living my dream.

So right now, yes, right now, I want you to think about what your dream is.

And then I ask you: why not you?

If someone else has done it, you can do it too.

If you can even imagine it, you can do it too.

If you are willing to work for it, then by the grace of this beautiful Universe, you can do it too.

Why not you?

Make it happen!
