Addiction isn't easy..

Updated: Jan 12

I knew from a very young age that something was "different" about me. I thought maybe I was just more determined than most people. It took me until I was 30 to do some deep soul searching and actual research to learn that I have an addictive personality. Whatever I'm surrounding myself with or working on, I become addicted to it. It makes sense because I've always been addicted to something. Softball, whatever job I was working at the time, drama, my relationships, alcohol, health & fitness, coffee, the list goes on and on.


After changing who (and what) I surrounded myself with, and after TONS of research, personal development reading, and finding personal development podcasts to listen to at work. I finally accepted that an addictive personality really is a thing! At first I was like "oh great, so it is me! I am the problem!" haha! But then I found a mentor who has the exact same addictive personality and has gone through MANY of the same things I have with this.


I've learned that addiction is what you make of it. I know that it's much harder for others and I absolutely recommend reaching out for help if neccessary! But that's not what this blog is about. This is about finding a way to direct your addiction towards something that can change the entire freaking world!!


Okay, I have an addictive personality.. So I learned that if I surround myself with positive likeminded people, commit to being a part of something bigger than myself, work on myself DAILY through fitness, nutrition, and mindset work, then THAT is what I'll become obsessed with. I decided to gear my energy and focus towards what truly resonated with me. Self-confidence, fitness, nutrition, daily affirmations, talking with others who are going through the same things I did. Every single day I was looking for more ways to help others.



Well, I did it. It actually worked! One of my favorite books is Be Obsessed or Be Average by Grant Cardone. I quite literally have become so addicted to building my own health & wellness business, that there is no chance that I will fail. That's not an option. I had to decide to let go of my past addictions in order to move on, and I will never let go of this addiction. The amount of lives I've been able to touch with this opportunity are worth every single painful night of overcoming my past addictions.


Addiction is real, and it is not easy. Some of us are very blessed to be able to understand and grow with our addictive personalities to use it for good. I challenge you, to find something like this to be addicted to. Let's change up the statistics and help each other live our very best lives! Email me your current addiction and what you're going to make your new addiction. I love hearing from my followers and love being able to help you on your fitness, nutrition, and mindset journeys!


XO,

Stephanie
