“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”
This is a quote from Marianne Williamson and it has been on my mind this week as I start a new round of Lift to Get Lean. I posted a two word quote on my Facebook page and Instagram account just a few days ago. It simply said “Level up.” I was encouraging folks to become just a little bit better. Now, when I say “better,” I acknowledge that you are fully amazing just the way you are right in this very moment. But we all have dreams, aspirations or goals we would love to accomplish. We are constantly growing, evolving and change comes whether we want it to or not.
Today I am here to encourage you to level up so you can meet those dreams and go where they want to take you. I am asking you to face those fears that have held you back from your full power and true potential. I have faith in you and your ability to make the improvements. You are not inadequate and you don’t need to fear your own strength.
The amazing thing about leveling up in one area of your life is that it often causes you to improve other areas of your life too. You cannot begin to harness your power in the gym or take control of your eating without the rest of your life following suit. I’m always amazed how the seeds I plant in my program grow for individuals in the most unexpected and rewarding ways. Making your health a priority makes your other priorities become clear also. So, here’s some other ways you can level up...
Regular exercise and good nutrition are an amazing foundation upon which to build the rest of your life. If you’re seeking mental clarity, you will reap the benefits of sound sleep and what it feels like to reach a goal. If you’re seeking emotional support, exercise releases all kinds of positive endorphins and eating a balanced diet regulates so many hormones. Financial leveling up is influenced by the self-control that is learned from eating in a balanced way or staying consistent with workouts. I am very mindful to incorporate yoga into my programs because it restores and realigns your spirit. And lastly, we all know the phrase “you are what you eat.” If you are fueling yourself properly, you will feel your energy levels rise. Not to mention the positive energy you feel after working out!
I know there can be a lot of fear that accompanies going after your goals. I am in no way saying that leveling up is easy. But, what I am saying is that it is rewarding. And the rewards will be felt in ALL areas of your life. So don’t be afraid to take it to the next level. Don’t be afraid to be powerful beyond measure!
