During the past few months at Fitness Quest 10 in San Diego I have lived more inspired than ever before. Not only to better myself through my career, but changing my whole outlook on life. I not only have learned more than I could imagine about training and running a successful business, but the way I interact and connect with people has changed. My outlook on every task I complete throughout my day is positive and I truly believe it is through the connections I have made here that have unleashed my true passion. Not only do I want my goal in life to be to share my passion of fitness and health with others, but I want to help others live as positively and passionately as I do. I have come up with a list of ways to bring out your true passion and ultimately live an inspired life yourself.
“We are all connected.”
I realized there is a reason why someone may enter your life. It could be to help you or it could be to hurt you, but there is always a reason behind it. Connections can lead to great things and open up many doors if you realize what you have in front of you. Make it your mission to make at least one person smile per day. You never know who you are affecting so why not try to affect as many people as positively as you can? -And I guarantee that positivity will come right back around to you when YOU need it.
“It’s not the circumstances that create joy, its YOU.”
Life is what you make of it. Even on your worst day, if you fake a smile long enough before you know it that smile will be genuine. Todd tells us all of the time, “Fake it til you make it.” and I 100% agree with him! Waiting around for something to turn your day around is less effective than decided that your “bad day” is over and making the best of it yourself. When you decide your fate, you are destined for success.
“Do more of what makes you happy.”
We all see it on social media every single day. People complaining. Whether it’s about work, school, or someone messing up their coffee order, they are spreading their negativity to you. When someone makes you unhappy, think to yourself, “What can I do to change this situation?”. You are not stuck, you are not a tree. Do what you need to do to be happy!
“Surround yourself with people who make you hungry for life, touch your heart, and nourish your soul.”
This one in my opinion is the most important. By surrounding yourself with these kind of people, you are bettering yourself. Their positivity, inspiration and inner fire are spreading to you whether you realize it or not. When I am around people like this (and realize it in the moment) I get goosebumps, my heart starts racing and my excitement almost comes out through my ears. These are your soulmates. These are the people that effect you so highly and you need to make sure they stay in your life.
I used to think I lived inspired. Yet when I look back now and compare my thought process to where it is now, I realize that was only the beginning. My inspiration continues to grow every single day because I follow these simple tasks. Living inspired, and living with purpose has allowed me to figure out why I was put on this earth. So what are you waiting for?
