You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.
One of the biggest things I have learned about life is how much what we think about plays a role into it. We can and will be a success or a failure based on our thinking. This is because our thoughts become our actions, our actions our habits, and our habits, our reality, our life. I see so many people bogged down by their appearance. Truly, I believe it’s not even their appearance they are bogged down about – they are comparing themselves to another human. Maybe it isn’t really the image of another human .. maybe it is a photo-shopped image. I dislike how our culture has glorified the perfect body.
I have pursued becoming a personal trainer because I not only have found a passion for fitness and a healthy lifestyle, but because I have a passion to help other people improve their lives as well. To me, when I think, “Personal Trainer”, I don’t just imagine someone in the gym coaching a person through a workout. I imagine a trusted friend, someone that person can look to for an example and advice on different workout and nutrition questions they may have, as well as help that particular individual work on their brain and their own personal success.
To me, personal training is not about having the perfect body. To me, it is about being healthy inside and out. I care about what I put in my brain and if it is good for me or bad for me. I care about what I put into my body and whether it is good or bad for me as well. The same concept applies. So, to bring my explanation back to the question, my motivation for becoming a personal trainer is to help other people change their lives. I believe that if they change their minds, they’ll change their actions, and if they change their actions, their habits and life will follow. It’s all just a process, and I want to help with it!
