Find What Fuels Your Fire!

People always say the best things in life are free, but they also say the things worth having don't come easily. For a while I felt these two contradicted themselves. The more I'm learning about what fuels me in life and the dreams I have for myself the more I'm realizing they don't. I have an amazing relationship with my boyfriend, the most loving family a girl could ask for, and I'm building my dream career. I did not pay for any of these things, but they certainly didn't come easily. All good things take work, because let's just face it, we're human and life isn't easy!

The common denominator I've found in succeeding in all three of these areas is loving myself first. Of course my boyfriend and family will always love and support me, but without truly loving and being myself completely these relationships can be just mediocre. When they have potential to be the most astounding features in your lifetime.

For me, my relationship and family were always there, but self love was hard to come by when I was lacking my dream career. Which I know sounds absolutely insane but hear me out! Growing up I was doing amazing. I was huge into sports and softball was my entire life. I had so much pride and confidence in myself with every accomplishment that came along. But then I hit a dead end in my career, graduated college, realized softball was no longer in the books as my confidence booster. It doesn't have to be a sport for you, but it was for me. I had no idea at the time, but I was lost. I didn't know what I was living for anymore but I knew there was something else out there I could be passionate about, I just had to find it.

So I job hopped. From bank telling, restaurants, art galleries, retail, vet hospitals, all the way to concrete manufacturing. And I'm sure I missed a few others in there. The point is, I tried everything! Each new career path I was extremely passionate about and honestly did love them all. Each time I'd start down a new path I was determined to work my way up the ladder, and I did. I would become so proud of myself again for the accomplishments I was making at work, and I thought this confidence would help with the other aspects of my life, but it didn't. Why? Because I was just going through the motions. I hadn't found what truly set my soul on fire. I was doing what I was supposed to do to and praying that it was enough to live this amazing life I had always dreamed of.

It wasn't until I discovered my health & wellness team that all of this changed for me. I started seeing these women, helping women. Physically and mentally. Honestly, it was the testimonies that did it for me. I would sit here and watch these videos of them talking about how being a part of this community change their lives for the better and I would literally cry until my eyes were so puffy I couldn't see the screen anymore. This is what I wanted, this is what I needed. I wanted to be making a video one day speaking with that much passion and telling my own testimony. So that's what I did. I dove straight in and poured my heart and soul into my workout programs, nutrition, and mindset personal development. I still couldn't tell you the exact moment everything changed for me on that journey, but something lit a flame in me and I just knew it was time for me to start sharing my story.

I was already trying to recruit people to join my team, because "that's what I was supposed to do." But one night my coach asked me to share my testimony on a team call. I was shocked, I didn't really know what to say. Why would they want to listen to me? After the call I had a woman message me about how empowered she was by my story and shared hers with me. I couldn't believe it, there was someone else like me! It left me thinking that night, this was just one woman who happened to be on the call the same night I shared my story. What happens if I really start branching out and sharing? How many other women can I inspire? This fueled my fire. It was my turn to be the woman in the videos sharing her testimony, to be the woman someone sits at home with puffy eyes because she's so proud of this woman in the video. It was my turn to share how I made this life possible, to start inspiring other women to chase their dreams and be the most amazing versions of themselves while loving themselves and their body through the process.

It's true, the things worth having don't come easily. The important part is it's worth it and you must show up every single day, even the days you don't want to. If not for yourself, for the women who are watching you. This journey is never ending, there is always room for growth and new challenges ahead. But now that I've seen how worth it it is, there's nothing stopping me.

If you have a story to share or would like to join my team to change the path of your story, email me today, let's chat! We could even have a Zoom Call coffee time together! Find what fuels you fire and never look back, I promise you it's life-changing.


Until next time,

Stephanie
