Every year, I like to reflect on my life during that year and ask myself if I am satisfied with my accomplishments. In past years I begrudgingly sat in my little cubicle in Corporate America, doing meaningless work and getting yearly evaluations by a manager who knew less than I did. I suffered through salary increase freezes and a fear-based corporate culture that would squash anyone’s spirit.
The year 2011 was different. Instead of letting my corporate job get the best of me and complaining about it, I worked even harder on my part-time Beachbody business with enthusiasm and purpose. My Beachbody team started growing as did my personal development. I learned how to be a leader and to help hundreds of people get healthy, financially fit, and to truly be on the path to owning their life.
Some friends and family didn’t understand why I spent so much time on my business. I heard comments like, “Why can’t you just be happy at your corporate job like everyone else?” Well, gee, I don’t know too many people who are actually happy at their cubicle jobs, do you? Most people I know just complain about it but yet they are afraid to do anything different.
In August 2011, something amazing happened that changed my life. I was layed-off from the corporate job. Most people would be upset about this. Not me! I happily left the building, started working on my Beachbody business to-do list for the week, and never looked back!
I have been going strong ever since and was never even eligible for unemployment because I earn a nice check from Beachbody every week.
2011 was a GREAT year! I feel so blessed that in 2009, I made the decision to start a business with Beachbody. By being consistent and doing a little bit every day, my business exploded in 2011! What if I had done nothing or given up? I would have nothing right now. I might be sending out resumes along with millions of other people who choose NOT to do anything different in their lives.
How was your year of 2011? Can you say you made a difference in your life or someone else’s life? Are you happy with your life? More important, if you keep doing exactly what you are doing now, will you be satisfied with where your life is at the end of year 2012?
Take a step toward making 2012 YOUR best year ever! I can help you build a better future for yourself and your family. If I can do it, so can you! Let’s work together in 2012 and make it happen!
