What is your definition of success? I realize it is different for each of us and subject to change at a moments notice. This week is my Team Beachbody Coach Summit and it is the 5 year anniversary. We are leaving Wednesday morning and will be coming home next Monday and I really don’t want to go. But I am going in spite of myself. I have attended every summit except for year 2. I cancelled at the last minute because I did not feel like I had lost enough weight and did not want to have people judging me. I was embarrassed and hid out. Not only did I not go, one of my best coaches, did not go because I didn’t and have felt guilty ever since. And not going has been something I have regretted for 4 years. So I am going.
5+ years of being a Team Beachbody Coach and still not at my healthy weight. Total lost to date is 99.8 pounds, some of which I have gained back in the past 5 months. This means I am going to summit heavier than I was last year which is really embarrassing and humiliating. Too bad, I am going because this journey is about my personal success and the success of the people I have the privilege to inspire and motivate everyday.
Thursday, I have asked to be one of the speakers at the Team Genesis Training Day where I am guessing there will be several hundred people. I have to get up on a stage in front of all of these people (most of whom are at their healthy weight) with 100+ pounds to still lose and talk about success. Am I comfortable about this? No way, I am terrified and know I will probably start crying.
Today I am planning on writing my talk and that even makes me nervous. So I am spending the day reflecting on what success means to me. What does success mean to you? My mantra for the week is:
“Wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it. Right is right even if no one is doing it.”
