Kickoff to Joy


On your mark, get ready, set, and go??  “I don’t have time; I’m tired; It’s too cold; It’s too late; maybe some other time,” said everyone we know. Are you putting off pursuing a passion, desire, or goal? You may have five reasons why you CAN’T, but we’ve got ONE that could change your mind.

We all like to hover in our comfort zone, but nothing great ever happens there. Our life purpose is to experience achievements, challenges, highs and lows.  We get so comfortable playing small that when something big shows up for us, we’re intimidated. We start to feed off this fear and avoid listening to our heart. The one reason you need to start doing more of what you love, setting a new goal, or changing your lifestyle for the better, is YOU. Don’t you think you’re worth it? You have the power to live a fulfilling, happy life. You’re here to practice, be challenged, and get defeated, in order to learn and grow. Fueling a passion or fulfilling a longtime goal is guaranteed to spark joy.

Declare today your kickoff. Never mind if taking time for your self is frowned upon We’re here to tell you that there’s no better time than now to start something new. You don’t have to do it by yourself; there’s strength in numbers. You can make your start small, just as long as you start. The only guarantee in life is impermanence. Don’t wait for tomorrow. Make it matter today by committing to the pursuit of a passion or new challenge.

Remember, “You don’t have to be great to start. You just have to start to be great.”

    Some really great tips.

    i just recently donated a kidney and am currently limited to activity. Walking allowed only. Once I have the green light to proceed to working out again, is it best to start slow and work upwards? Whats the best way to start?
