Happy Friday everyone! I love Friday’s. I love that tomorrow is the Challenge Circuit; I love that I get to spend more time with my wife and family; I love that the weekends give me an opportunity to be refreshed and re-energized. Life seems to be going by so darn fast, and I find myself struggling to keep up with it. They say that the older you get, the faster life goes by. I’m not sure I believe that life going by has to do with my age, but I can certainly say, it is going much faster! It may be that I am busier now with developing the Change4Life Challenge business; Studying for my Personal Trainer Certification; Leading the Challenge Circuit; Making sure I make time for my own health and fitness program; Being a husband, father and grandfather (Poppie)! Whatever it is, life is certainly busier than it has been in the past years.
Even though I am busy, I don’t feel like it is a bad thing. I have always been afraid to step out of my comfort zone, especially now that I am 53, and realize that I can still make a difference in other people’s lives. I have heard many stories of “older” people going back to school and getting degrees; starting new businesses; making changes in life that they never dreamed were possible. Now that I am making changes in my own life, I am busier, but man, it is an exciting busy! I love helping others and I am excited to see how many more people I can inspire to step out an make changes in their lives also!
I have been blessed with as an opportunity to inspire others to make changes in their lives, through the Challenge Circuit! We have had participants that have suffered for years with physical challenges, get out on the course and give it everything they have! To see them put aside the challenges, and give an effort that only they can give, INSPIRES me to no end! Determination. Passion. Selflessness. These people are “Inspiring Change” in not only their own lives, but mine as well. I am humbled by their commitment. Thank you!
We were all capable of living our lives to the fullest extent possible. Granted, some of us have limitations, and you know what you have to be mindful of, but I want to encourage you to never give up. Always do the best you can and keep pushing forward. You will be surprised at what you can accomplish!
