Happy Saturday!! The kids are still in bed and I just finished my T25 workout. I'm sitting here checking in with my groups and responding to my emails. I came across a few emails this week that have totally changed my perspective of what I do.
|My before picture|
I was thinking about the past 2 years and what they have looked like. I mean have you ever really just sat and reflected on how your life has changed? So I started out as a woman who had 2 kids and felt disgusting in her skin. I mean seriously how many of you can relate to that?!?! I decided to start working out....NORMAL AGAIN right?!?! But this time, I didn't quit....NOT NORMAL! The majority of people who start a fitness program do not finish it! So what was different?! I know exactly spot on what that was. It was the challenge group, the support, the motivation, the friends that I made and the fact that I had a place to check in at all times. It was like a lightbulb moment for me. Seriously how could I not shout this from the roof tops at how down right amazing this program was!
Well, there is a way to do that. It's called becoming a Beachbody Coach. I will not lie, I remember sitting on the couch watching the "What is a Beachbody Coach"
thinking that this is to good to be true. In reality, it is true and it is totally good!
I brainstormed all the ways that I could help other people get the same results that I had. I was beyond excited to get started with helping others.
The one thing I will note is that when I started coaching I was not at my goal weight, I had no idea what social media was or even where the heck to find a facebook group. But I jumped feet first and decided that I would take it one day at a time and I would make my focus on helping other people.
So this brings me to the point of the blog post. 2 years later after pretty much dedicating myself to helping other people get results I have achieved some pretty significant milestones in the Team Beachbody business. I earned the Success Club Trip for my Family to Disney World, I have attended 2 coach summits, this past year I was asked to speak at the Coach Summit in Las Vegas, I have attended the Leadership Retreat in Dana Point where I was also asked to Speak, I have piloted a Coach Training Program for the network, and most recently spoke on my 2nd national coach call. I am an Elite Coach, I am currently ranked the #2 coach out of 130,000 + coaches and I am a 12 star diamond coach. I am a wife, mom, daughter, friend and a typical house wife who had a dream of doing something extraordinary. I have the same 24 hours in my day that you have, I just have mastered the art of multitasking, prioritizing (although not always good) and staying focused on my goals.
So this week when I was asked to speak on Lessons in Leadership I was pumped. I have gone from a 2 star diamond to 12 star diamond this year! Pretty exciting stuff!!! Words cannot describe how PROUD I am of the Dream Team coaches and all of their success as well! I feel that creating a systematic approach to growing your business is a key to success.
So I'm here today to share with you my top tips.
Below is my presentation for you to listen to and share!!!
- Start Now vs. Someday- Every single thing I have done as a coach I was not ready to do. I started my first group before I had my posts ready, I advertised before I had my first customers. I ran my own challenge group before I was at my personal weight loss goal. I had no idea where I was going but I just went for it and figured it out along the way. You don't have to have a perfect blog, like page or body before you become a coach. Part of the excitement is sharing your story as you go! You don't have to see the whole staircase you just have to see the first step! That is it!!! If you have a great idea, just do it!!!
- Research and take initiative- As a new coach I didn't have all the answers. I didn't know anything about social media, facebook, blogging, tweeting, Instagram or hashtags. Heck I didn't even know what a facebook group was. But instead of sitting here using my lack of knowledge in social media as a reason not to be successful I took initiative to find out more. The most successful coaches don't wait for someone to tell them what to do, they just do it! The speed of the leader is the speed of the pack! If you want your own future team to grow and blossom then you be that example.
- Always self evaluate yourself. Do people know the real you, the struggles, triumphs, what I do to maintain my fitness and nutrition? If something isn't working, re-evaluate and try again. Always share your healthy lifestyle vs selling it! Always ask yourself if you are living the life you want others to live as well.
- Leadership is not a sprint it's a marathon- Being a leader does not happen over night. Being a leader is sometimes painful, scary and hard. Being a leader takes time, energy and perseverance Being a leader means that you lead with excitement and passion even on days when you do not feel like it. Being a good leader is always improving yourself. The one thing that I live by is this, "Never build a business so that you can be better than someone else, build a business and create a huge life so that you can help others more!!!
So be fearless, follow your heart, lead with passion. If you do those things others will follow you and you will naturally rise to the top!!!
