Life is interesting and always keeps us on our toes. I met on the weekend with a friend and fellow business owner. We talked about the excitement of owning and running your own business. We also talked about the work involved and at how at times you can feel you are alone with your problems. But, we also talked about the joy both of our businesses bring to our lives and how the satisfaction of helping others and hopefully bringing positive change to someone else's life is worth it all.
As our coffee cups slowly emptied, it became evident that she was at a crossroads with both her business and her life. Her business is at the point where you need to make a decision to allow the business to grow and take on staff to help run or keep it manageable with just yourself. She is also at a crossroads in her life and what direction she wants her own life. Are you at a crossroad in your life? Maybe you have been coasting along wondering about making changes in your life. Maybe the possibility of starting a fitness program or increasing a present fitness regime is in the forefront of your mind. Have you been looking at your nutrition lately wondering how to start or make changes to your lifestyle?
It is not always easy to figure out the next step. I think first you need to decide what is important to you and what your priorities are. If your health and well being is important, and you are willing to make it a priority then you have taken the first step to success.
Step Number 1 is making a commitment to yourself and dedicating the time necessary to realize that goal. You must make you a priority. You must make your health and wellness No. 1. When you make the decision that you are ready for change and willing to embrace the work necessary to make those changes happen, you are already well on the road to success. Our clients at Victoria Wellness have made that decision and have taken the steps
necessary to make their goals a reality. Surrounding yourself with like minded people and having a support system in place are all necessary ingredients in order for your fitness program to be successful. You must have everyone on board with you.
As the old saying goes, "Nothing good in life comes easy" and good health, a strong and fit body are no exception. Hard work in all areas (strength training, cardio training, nutrition, recovery) is required in order to make any appreciable change in your body composition. So, if you are at a crossroads in your life – now is the time to take control, seek out support and make those changes happen!
