Get Busy Living Or Get Busy Dying....

I don't know about you...but no one has ever asked me this question. Up until recently, I have never even asked myself this question. I say "up until recently" because it has always been my mindset that I would fail at whatever I attempted. I was not brought up with the notion of having dreams, setting goals and doing my best to accomplish them. There was never any talk like, "What are your dreams?" or "What kind of goals do you have?" But it was never instilled in me to think about goals that I

Don't get me wrong, while I was growing up, I was able to witness how hard my parents both worked to take care of me and my four siblings. I knew that hard work was required to take care of family. I knew that being responsible required hard work to take care of those responsibilities. But I think somewhere along the way, as we grow up and have these responsibilities to take care of, we often forget about such lofty ideas like dreams and goals. 

I feel that at some point, we need to re-evaluate where we are in life and take time to either establish some goals or take some of those old goals we set for ourselves and get busy trying to fulfill those goals. After all, if we are not trying to reach our potential, then one isn't really living are they? It's like Morgan Freeman's character in the movie Shawshank Redemption says, "Get busy living or get busy dying." I feel that a lot of us are busy just trying to get by that we don't have time to think about goals or dreams. In my opinion, when we stop dreaming, we stop living. Dreams are what gives life substance! Achieving those dreams is what should light a fire under us to go out and not settle! Dreams can transform us into an entire different human being. 

So the question I have for you is...


I really would like to come on and leave a comment!

It was about three years ago that I watched the P90X informercial on late night TV. After much debate, I decided to order the program and I'll tell life hasn't been the same since! It was tough and there were many times where I thought I would quit, but at the end of that first 90 days I felt like a new person! I was stronger and more confident because I knew that I had accomplished something worthwhile!

So that brings me to the point of this particular blog!

Starting on November 4, 2013, I will be co-hosting the Xtreme Transformation Challenge with some of my fellow Beachbody coaches!

I am searching for five to six people who have that desire and mental toughness to commit to 90 days of P90X  OR P90X2 and who KNOW, like I did when I did my first round or P90X, that an Xtreme change is needed in their life!

***WARNING*** The workouts are brutal (especially if you haven't worked out in a while) but I guarantee you that if you stick with the program, you WILL see results!

So if you are ready to get started, or if you have a family member or friend who may be interested in making a life changing transformation in their life, then contact me to find out how to get started!
